A Benidorm hotel worker has been arrested after a British tourist claimed she had been raped following a night out with a friend she was staying with.
The holidaymaker told police she was forced to have sex after the security guard offered to accompany her to her room when she returned the worse for wear.
The 43-year-old claimed in a police statement the unnamed man had put a pillow over her face as he raped her.
The hotel worker is insisting the women were both drunk and all he and a colleague did was take energy drinks to their room at their request.

He has also told police other clients subsequently complained about the noise the tourists were making and they went up to their rooms again to ask them to quieten down before they refused a second request for more drinks including alcohol.
An investigating judge took the decision to release him after questioning yesterday/on Friday pending an ongoing criminal probe rather than remand him in custody.
He is expected to have to sign on at court as part of his provisional release conditions, although there has not yet been any official confirmation.
Unconfirmed local reports said the British woman at the centre of the rape allegations had taken out holiday insurance to cover her in case of a physical or sexual assault.
The hotel where the alleged sex attack occurred has not been identified.
Investigators are believed to have been handed CCTV footage from the inside of the tourist establishment to help them get to the bottom of what happened.
Police have confirmed the arrest but did not make any further comment yet.
