LAST month Benidorm Palace received its 16 millionth guest.

It was the first time the Palace had counted numbers since opening its glass doors in 1977 – and the figure is testament to its enduring popularity.

Co-owner Christine Climent, originally trained as a nursery nurse, tells Olive Press TV how she took the ailing Palace on in 1990, and among a global decline in cabaret theatre steered it to international acclaim.
