Not as bad as I thought it would be.

Its the 1970's highrise brutalist architecture which gets my attention.

A lot of Spanish resorts are stuck in the 1970's.

The beach looks ok.

Where are the swathes of pale British tourists? The Union Jacks? British Pubs? Hehe.

I think the 70's brutalist architecture had its own evolution in Benidorm until nowadays, what I think it's quite valuable in terms of architecture, but not in terms of beauty, personally, I like it, I like Gold Coast's architecture better, but Benidorm's architecture has an special value few people recognise (as it happens with most of the brutalist architecture).
These towers are for me one of the best examples, I love them, but most people won't like that simplicity and those nude and irregular concrete walls that make the towers look unfinished or of poor quality/maintenance (pic from Ecthelion in spanish forum urbanity.es)

I prefer Miami & the Goldcoast architecture to this although your right it does have some kind of value for some people.

The city itself is not so beautiful, but the skyline is impressive! But it looks nice anyway, nice shots!

On some photos looks like buildings have fallen from the sky . They just don't fit in the surroundings . It also looks quite empty , you don't see people around . The place is definitely stuck in the 70's . Nice pics but I would never go on holidays to such a place .
Anyone knows who are the people living in these apartments .Are they mostly Spaniards or snowbirds from northern Europe ?

i think most of them are tourists from northern europe, mostly british and german, that's why the population is that high in summer and low in winter
