The Benidorm Palace is not only an impressive building on the outside, on the inside you are instantly immersed in a glamours five star entertainment venue which provides you with the perfect excuse to get dressed up for a fabulous night out.
Take a Listen to Cool FM Interview:
As you make your way down the glittering stairway into the fine dining venue, the true enormity of the space is laid out before you. As your gaze is focused on the central main stage a well orchestrated dance by the waiting staff ushers you up to your private table.
Catering for around 1600 guests for every show, the Palace provides a variety of ticketing options from a show only ticket to the full dining experience. Depending on your budget, we’d recommend enjoying the top tier Gran Palace Plus menu which comes complete with a ticket to the show, four course fine dining meal, wine for 2, and a bottle of Cava.
During the dining portion of the evening, each course of the meal is presented to you by your personal server who takes time to walk you through each delicious dish, while a chilled performance by the house band plays away on the stage. The apron of the stage is also smoothly lowered to ground level to provide a spacious dance floor before returning to its performance height after desserts, ready for the main show to begin.
For anyone who has experienced the thrills and theatrics of a Broadway, Las Vegas or West-End Show will not be disappointed in the palaces latest extravaganza, Alegrias. The show boasts an impressive use of modern technology through clever use of lighting, staging and special effects to really create something unique in the heart of Benidorm.
From the very opening note, the show sets the tone for an exciting journey through music, performance and dance including stunning renditions from musical successes like The Greatest Showman and Grease, to exploring the more tradition arts of Flamenco and Bollywood, to the breathtaking illusions of Magic Circle member & Merlin award winning David Climent.
The show is supported by a cast of world-class performers with whom provide a well balances side attraction to the central story line. We witness feats of physical strength from Golden Design, gaze in awe at the incredible skill of juggler Paul Ponce, marvel at the uniqueness of Kimberly Lester’s act, gasp in amazement at the precision of the Saly Brothers and laugh out loud with the Palace Waiters.
There really is something for everyone to enjoy in this show.
