    A bloke living in the sun-trapped Spanish coastal city has left people feeling jealous after revealing its cheap drink prices.

    Dazza, who posts his new life in Spain on social media, gave his viewers a quick price check while having a stroll along the promenade in Benidorm.

    In his video, he stops by the row of cafes and bars and shows the drink list on the board.

    "Look at these prices – cheap!" he says.

    Most of the drinks on offer are less than €5 (£4.40) – with coffees and teas priced at €1 (88p)each.

    Any local brandy, Baileys or Tia Maria are all €1.60 (£1.40) each.

    The bar next door offers €1 beer every day until 7pm, including a pint of Amstel or Fosters.

    Bottled beers are either €1 or €1.50 (88p or £1.32).

    In another video, Dazza shows a board of "happy hour shots" with almost all double shots priced at €2 (£1.76) only.

    Viewers were stunned to see the bargain booze and some were surprised to see the area welcomed by British tourists.

    One said: "Everyone's dressed from Sports Direct."

    "Look at the prices and look at the clientele," another wrote and a third commented: "We are ripped off in this country!

    "People paying £7 for a pint in England and freezing."

    But others were not too keen about the area, with a person saying: "The type of destination I avoid like the plague…Blackpool in the Sun."

    "Great place Benidorm, something for everyone, old town, tapas alley, nightlife for all and a great vibe, but not for everyone," a second added.

    A third added: "But you're in Benidorm, I'd rather go to Pyongyang."

    Dazza replied to the negative comments and said Benidorm is "nothing like it", as he referred to a comment about the place as "the warm version of Blackpool".
