2016-01-14
steven
4th time this year, safe secure and very clean apartments
2016-01-14
Close to all amenities could do with refurb
2015-11-17
In need of updating and replace items such as pot,s & utensils. furniture ect.
2015-11-17
Somewhat dated decor and basic. For the money though it was spot on. we were a group of 5 lads and found the room perfect for a base and somewhere to sleep. Location is perfect. right in the middle of the action. Lots of cheap bars and restaurants nearby. Quiet at night which was suprising for the location
2015-11-16
The apartments are really well located, the only downside of the property is there were no mirrors, only in the bathroom. Also we had to locate where we collected the keys from. However very good values
2015-11-16
Brilliant location would stay there again only downside the people above seem like they are in the same room as you when they are talking

The property needed some minor repairs to lights and sockets etc but this in no way spoilt our holiday and we will be booking again. This is the 2nd time we have stayed in the apartments and will not be the last.....
2015-11-16

The rooms are good,clean. The property is let down with the decor in the corridors, they really need refurbishing, that would make these apartments more inviting. I hesitate to recommend because of this, only this.

lynn newton
I have been coming back here for years and always enjoy my stay if anything goes wrong in apartment they come and sort it right away, not normally very busy around the pools so normally plenty of space.the only downside this time cleaner never cleaned the room in the 11 days we were there and the day the sheets and towels got changed cleaner gave them to me to do myself i was not very happy about this i know i go self catering but i do not expect to change my own bed sheets. saying that i still enjoy staying there
2015-06-03
Disappointed that there was no charging points for my mobilety scooter was not told when booking despite clearly telling yourselfthat I would be using a scooter it was costing 1 euro to charge the scooter but that could only be charged during day time when I would be using it .
2015-05-14
G Phillips
Great Location right in the heart of Benidorm, but still quiet in the night. 4 th time in these apartments and will def. book again. Outstanding value for money. The Spainish Bar across the road is superb.
2015-02-16
mark
The location of the apartment is absolutely fine we would like to book again however the apartments are so dated I do hope we can find more up to date ones in the same building that was the only down point to the holiday
2015-01-13
Bernie
This property is right in centre but not stuck in thick of it,just up side street couple mins from main square, had a great stay for xmas/new year, although there is club 2 doors away no noise from this could be heard, I am this week booking again to stay here for ladies trip in may,was comfortable and clean.

We travelled in a party of 10 and rented 3 of the apartments in this block and found the interior very clean, the furniture was comfortable it was fantastic for a 4 day break over the new year. We had a balcony with garden table and chair which was really good for sitting and watching the world go by.

Good value for money, very central location, close to beach and amenities.
2014-11-17
This is the second time i have stayed at these apartments .once again brilliant accomadation ,just one little gripe we werent supplied with enought toilet rolls .for an apartment with five people in 4 toilet rolls for 9 days
2014-11-17
So spacious! Great location and great price
2014-11-17
The apartment was very shabby and sparse. The heater did not work. The kitchen light worked occasionally. There was only one round mirror in the apartment - in the bathroom which in itself was grubby. The furniture was NOT up to standard and not even a lamp in the whole apartment.
2014-11-17
dixie glasgow
Very spacious and clean great variety of utensils and crockery. Above great pub shamrock .close to all entertainment and beach
2014-10-13
Dewcob
Great location looking out over the Med, what more could you want. Apartments are spacious and comfortable and a 5 minute walk to where the nightlife starts. Nice pool but no sun loungers and is shaded most of the day but the beach is only 5 metres from front door, as I said earlier, what more could you want. Would recommend these apartments.
2014-09-22
Lovely apt, pool area great Shame you have to pay 2.50 euro a day for a sun lounger
2014-09-21
cathy
The room was bigger than we expected.It was nice and clean.Nice big pool area,only draw back,there were no sun beds.You could hire sun beds just up the road for 10 euros a week,but,you could only lay on your back,other than that you could buy a lilo,but,at our age who needs the hassle of getting up and down all day.
2014-08-18
We had problems first two days with no hot water however this was eventually fixed on the monday but with 2 adults and 2 fifteen year olds this did pose a problem having to have cold showers also had to get the shower head fixed and this was done very quickly only other complaint thought the stairs were quite dangerous with being on a spiral
2014-08-02
Really nice
2014-07-13
To many hidden cost once at the apartments you have to pay for tv wifi sunbeds and deposits when playing games like table tennis etc
2014-07-12

These appartments are excellent,spacious, clean and terrific location with great view of the beach.

A very enjoyable week
2014-06-15
When we arrived they did not have a booking in our name .but when we showed our booking they found us a room.the apartments are always clean and tidy. l l
2014-06-14
Torre Yago apartments were again really good. The apartment was clean and well stocked, the only fault was that the glass in the main patio door was broken and covered by a cardboard box held in place with cellotape. Had we had children with us I would have been a bit worried. Will definitely be booking again next year.
2014-06-14
Anne
We booked a holiday for a family holiday wich included ages from 2 -62. We had 4 apartments and they were all very comfortable. As the lead passenger for this booking i was so pleased that everyone was so delighted with the accomodation i had chosen. We had a late flight arriving after midnight.the security man was waiting at the gate with our keys. Cannot wait to go back. It was a super family holiday. Thanks to all concerned.
2014-06-05
A lovely place to stay. We will be going back there.
2014-06-02
Spacious and clean. Could do with a towel change over the weekend for all male party.
2014-06-02
steve liverpool
By far the best apartments we hav stayed in, every thing you need safe and very secure
2014-05-16
This accommodation is in the perfect location. Short walk to the Airport bus stop, 10 minutes to the beach and about the same to all of the night life. A selection of bars, cafes and a shop nearby.
2014-05-12

The property was first class all public areas where the cleanest I have ever seen in Benidorm I was in the sitting room with a pull out double bed with memory foam materass very comfy could not fault the property
2014-05-03

large 3 bed apartment,with all facilities,cooker, washer,fridge ect: ,2 bathrooms,large lounge with leather sofa and comfy chairs,great views of the beach,only 3 of us stayed there but would be very comfortable for 5,man with keys was waiting for us when we arrived,only 1 niggle if you like to stay in bed late or have an afternoon siesta, no chance !the apartments are next door to the tikki bar which gets lively every day from 12 noon till 8pm,but if you cant beat em join em,ive booked twice with this company and i would say they are 1st class you get what you pay for without any problems..

Excellent again this is 5th time we have been cant wait for next one we are stopping 22 nights :)
2014-03-25
I only had a bed settee and the mattress was only 4" thick and was the most uncomfortable i have ever slept on
2013-12-03
Mike
This is an incomplete shell! It looks like a work in progress, that has yet to be finished. It is definitely NOT ready to be let to holidaymakers! No kettle, no toaster, no English TV channels (as described in brochure) NO INTERNAL DOORS!!! No privacy, no toilet seat, no wardrobes, no communication from holiday representative, no help whatsoever. Being told that it has just been taken over is not an excuse for an unfinished property. Total of 57 plug sockets, and switches...but no instructions for what they were for! Air Con permanently on, no way to switch it off. NO HELP! AVOID!!!

Property getting a little tired ready for a refurb
2013-11-24
This was the first time we have stayed at these apartments and found them quite spacious. We stayed in a two bedroom, with one located at the front (off the lounge) and one at the back, which was extremely helpful as two of our party snored. The only noise we experienced was during the day, which was only when sitting on the balcony and could therefore hear others who were sat on their balcony. The apartments are up a small incline and therefore may not be totally suitable for those with mobility issues; however there is a ramp in to the apartments and lift to all floors. There are a few shops nearby and a good size supermarket.
2013-11-17

We have stopped at these apartments many times before but this time the apartment had just been given a complete overhaul. Washing machine, dishwasher, enclosed shower. microwave etc. I would defo stop in this apartment again and again and again.....
2013-11-17
Good value for money friendly staff
2013-11-10
lads on tour
The property is typical spanish,it was clean with plenty of towels and clean sheets,it is in a great location on the sea front and next door to a supermarket would definately use these appartments again
2013-11-09
Allinson
This property is very spacious with maybe the best views in benidorm. We have stayed in this block twice and have been very impressed with the set up of both apartments. The only down side yo the accommodation is that the furniture on the balcony is now more than a little worn and well used, however do not let this put you off from booking the gemelos apartments. The apartments do cost that little bit more than similar sized apartments but well worth the difference in price for the sea views.
2013-11-03

Property ideal for location for night life , very clean , decor needs updating , but for the price , excellent ,
2013-10-30
Excellent location and very clean
2013-10-26
This is our 5th visit to these apartments, absolutely excellent value and the cleanliness is next to none, the lady who runs the apartments is friendly and nothing is too much for her to help you

I have stayed at the Benimar a number of times now and enjoyed my stay, they are of a reasonable standard compared to other apartments in Benidorm for a similar price. I would recommend that the owners pay attention to some minor defects as in the plaster close to patio door coming away from wall and light bulbs out of order, otherwise very good and the housekeeper does an excellent job at keeping the whole building very clean, she has high standards and will accommodate any requests where possible
2013-09-15
G Phillips
Excellant apartments right in the middle of everything. Will defo. book again next time in Benidorm.
2013-09-01
Pots and pans unclean. Noise from residents at night

The property was great. Had everything that you needed in it. You also felt very safe in the apartments.
2013-08-27
The apartments were clean and spacious, it had everything we needed and we felt very safe. Any issues we had were immediately addressed by the owner(she spoke very little English). She was happy to only take one lot of deposit when my friend could not remember her PIN for her credit card.

Graham Baskerville
Good location. Clean but poorly equiped generally with a sterile & unwelcomming interior. No cleaning materials and not even a welcome drink. No local map or other basic local information eg where the nearest supermarket is located. You have to do it all your self. Considering the apartment is advertised through a UK based company we would expect at least 1 English language TV channel. There were none whatsoever. On the plus side the location is good, in the old town area and the apartment safe and seccure. No safe for valuables but a good lock on the door and further lockable exterior door. I would not book it again but feel it could be so much better by spending a little bit of money and catering for guests a little more.

This is a very nice place to stay,we have stayed here several times and would highly reccomend it
2013-06-15
The apartments are in an excellent location, garden, swimming pools great, everything spotless
2013-05-29
I thought it was a small country hotel but turned out to be INTER chain. Everything effecient and adequate but not much atmosphere. One reason I booked was because there was a restaurant to save us looking - closed for dinner due bank holiday!
2013-05-27
I love this property due to the size of the apartments and the location. One downside is the lighting in the stairs and landings, it is very dark until you find the switch for the lights which are allocated outside apartment. Only complaint about apartment is that there are no full length mirrors, apart from that we love them.
2013-05-26
Could,nt ask for a better location but the rooms could do with a bit of updating.supermarket underneath,exchange right opposite.just a few yards from top of the square.
2013-05-21
The Hotel Acropole was an excellent stop over hotel. Although the rooms are a little on the small side ( not ridiculously so) they were clean tidy and very comfortable for an overnight stop. The hotel was very easy to find from exit 14 of the A28 motorway...indeed it was signposted from the first roundabout. The staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant next door was very good indeed. A very welcome added surprise. Car parking was ample and had a locked gate although we did not notice this to be closed at night.....perhaps it was late on. Nevertheless the surrounding area is very quiet and enquiries of the hotel said they had never had any problems. All in all a good stop which we would have no hesitation in using again should we be that way.
2013-05-18
Cracking location, Friendly staff but a bit noisy. If you want to sleep before 4 in the morning I suggest you use the sofa bed in the lounge.
2013-05-07
LOOKING A BIT TIRED COULD DO WITH SOME TLC

Ideally situated for town,rooms basic but clean ideal for short break would not like to stay for 2/3 weeks!! could have done with more than 1 front door key as no night porter
2013-03-27
Was not as good as the one we had last year in Gemello 2. The coooking facilities were bad with no shelf in the oven. This was rectified on day 2. If you used the saucepans they burn. Therefore we were unable to even boil an egg. The television did not have an English channel or a radio. We were very dissapointed as last year we had a very good apartment. We were given the wrong instructions for the key pick up so had it not been for a kind spanish gentleman at the reception where we were told to pick up the key phoning around for us we would have been there all night. The apartment are in a good position and if equipped better are perfect. Picking up keys has always been a problem and they need to get this right.

This accommodation needs a severe overhaul as we had never done self catering befor(and wont be doing again )there was no microwave or washing machineWhich i knew having asked before we went but the apartments in Benimar have got both this is how the Carlos needs to be upgraded especially as it is in a central location also instruction on how to use items would be good for people who had never used electic cookers & you need to put more items in cupboards i.e.more than one saucepan
2013-03-04
j&a bradford
Just spent one month at the benimar what a great place to have a holiday paula the housekeeper was realy first class very helpful there was no noise everything very clean we can not find one negative thing to say about the benimar would go again
2013-03-03
Definetely needs updating refused several apartments before i settled for ne

In a very good location but I suppose it will be noisy in the summer months. Would be ideal for younger people in mid summer and older people(like me) the rest of the time. Very good value for the price.Very near two night clubs.

I have 2 two bedroom apartments for two familys, 1 st night nobody in the reception, telephone no. not answering ( emergency phones and phones after 8:00 p.m ), me and the two families waited on the street 5 hours, English family halped us so much, called to police, at last at about 2:00 morning the brought the keys, first 3-4 days, no oven, no microwave, no reftigerator, very bad and delayd service, i think this apartments is in other country not in Spain, e.g Somalia !!!
2013-01-15
The housekeeper makes this property she is worth her weight in gold.
2013-01-12
Needs a new sofa
2013-01-05
This is the second time we have stayed at these apartments. Fantastic location, really good value for money and very spacious for a two bedroom. Some may say that they need modernisation; however they were perfect for what we wanted... somewhere to sleep and refresh. Would highly recommend
2012-11-22
Torre yago was good very convenient to beach plenty of room in apartments few showers end of october but that would also be natural. recommend benidorm.
2012-11-19
They are in a good location 5 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from Morgans, Saloon Bar, John and Joesephs etc. theer are pubs and supermarket near hand and they are 5 minutes from the outdoor market that takes place on Wed and Sundays. Collecting the keys can be a problem as you are dropped off by a coach transfer at the apts or the Dynastic Hotel next door. We were a coupleso my partner stayed with bags in the union my partnerjack pub and l went to Fincas Offcie to collect the keys. head straight down to the beach from the Apts and turn right on the beach front and abt 3 to 5 minutes along you will come to the VeraCruz Apts and the Fincas office is on the ground floor. If you have any problems in the apartmenst then dont bother with the woman at the apts reception as she will just balnk you out bcz your not one of her residents !!! you ahve to go back down to teh Fincas offcie to report any problems in the apt. I sometimes travel alone so l wont be booking this way again as you wuld have to get a taxi down to the offcie to colect keys and drag your baggage with you etc so maybe there should be an arrangement for picking up the keys at either the apts reception area or one of the local busineses to save people the journey to and from the Fincas offcie.
2012-11-17
Very good room was not available on day i arrived but but gave mee a nice room and then moved next day
2012-11-04
Very clean, well funrnished. Kitchen facilities not great - and a bit cramped, but good value for money
2012-11-03
matt sloan
Needs acoat of paint great location been many times so i know what to expect good idea getting the keys next door instead of going a mile for it then having to return it
2012-11-03
Liamsm
We are going back to Benidorm soon and we will be staying at the New Payma again, had a small problem and it was dealt with very quickly, nothing was to much for the staff and there isa nice bar underneath the apartments that is not noisy and does nice food
2012-10-28
First impression of the property was shock , what have i done to my wife and kids by bringing them to this hell hole that has a giant for sale sign on it. a4 sheets of paper on all the windows and walls at the run down un maned reception stating that any one who had not paid there rent would be denounced and electricity cut off.... the lifts were disgusting with broken mirrors, graffitti and spital, the corridors were clean. the front door to our apartment had been kicked in several times and been repaired, all the floors were dirty and the apartment had a strong musky damp smell. the kitchen unit doors were sticky and coated with dust. no kettle, toaster or oven, two under powered rings that could not boil water.not enough plates or cutlery and no plug for the sink. not enough towels or bedding, when i asked for them i was told they had none and did not know when the would have any.... the cushions were ripped and the foam got every were, two electrical sockets were hanging from the wall with bare wires, we asked for these to be fixed but no one came. all the internal doors had some damage and most did not close or open without waking up the hotel. not enough hot water for a second bath. my wife was cleaning for a full day of our holiday. no pool on the roof. i would not recomend any one to come to this hotel, we wanted to come home the first day but could not afford all the flights. i now expect hotels abroad to compensate us for the nightmare they put our family in for ten days. we paid and expected basic not DANGEROUS AND DISCUSTING. i look forward to receiving my reply from yourselves.
2012-10-25
Not in the centre of Benidorm but it was nice to be far enough away not to have all the noise of the night life. Within easy access to shops and outdoor market, grounds kept tidy and rubbish bins emptied regularly. Very impressed and would definately recommend to familes and groups of friends.
2012-10-23
THE CROC,S
The apartments are a great size,lovely big balconies etc!we were in TOWER 3 which i hadn,t wanted but ended up very happy,restaurants,supermarket etc very close by!the pools are lovely but there wasn,t a lot of sunlounger room round them and they decided to dig up a lot of the grass while we were there which gave even less room but it didn,t spoil our holiday!would definitely book again!
2012-10-22
Kath
Excellent property, could not fault it. Right on beach, no hills to climb, fabulous view. Only thing to comment on is that we asked for a kettle and were brought a coffee maker, but it had a washer, dishwasher, big fridge/freezer, microwave and cooker/hob. Beautifully decorated and furnished.
2012-10-20
Palo
Only fault you can find is no sun beds or chairs around the pool, we got a lilo from the Chinese shop,even had four English channels on the tv
2012-10-14
I have stopped in these appts before and was well happy with them,but to be honest was not entirely happy this time.when we got there it was a bit of a mess,but there was no one to complain too.however the next day someone came to finish repairs in the kitchen.should have been done before we arrived.also the beds were not real beds but the type that fold up into the wall..they squeaked just making the bed,not good for a good nights sleep..also they only fetched clean sheets on the friday before we were going home on the sunday,and we were there for two weeks.but still no complaints about the location or the fantastic views,will deffo go back again,just hope we get a better appt next time.
2012-10-14
Could do with more storage space has there was storage in the one bedroom or if there was six in the apartment there is only one wardrobe for everyone to put your clothes in.also could do with a safe in there.also when we went to office to ask where we could hire a safe box they was not very helpful
2012-10-13
MAYBE DUE FOR SOME NEWER EQUIPMENT/ BETTER QUALITY FURNITURE BUT OVERALL A VERY PLEASANT PROPERTY WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE VERY GOOD VALUE.
2012-10-13
Thank you so much for arranging our stay in Benidorm at the Don Miguel apts and giving us the apt with the high floor open balcony which we requested with the magnificent views. Because of this We will certainly book with you again . Thank-you
2012-10-12
Very good we enjoyed every moment, it was our third visit to vera cruz and will definately go back.The apartment was spot on and spotless.
2012-10-12
Linda
The bars which I have left blank I would not know the answers as some are not relevant to the apartment or my husband and myself.These apartments are self catering,and actually have a lovely sea view,which in Benidorm is particularly hard to find.The apartment,pool,and surrounding grassy part can not be faulted.Extremely quiet and overlooking a lovely park. Large supermarket 100 yds away which is very reasonably priced as well as being exceptionally good. We have been there twice and would have no hesitation in going back.
2012-10-11
Lorraine
Wonderful very large apartment, the location was great and suited us altho is you want a very quite holiday its not really the place for you, The Tikki Beach bar next door plays loud music until around 1am, although the other side of the apartments would probably be quieter. The only 1 tiny complaint is that ther are no mirrors in the bedrooms, which as you can imagine is a slight problem for 5 women sharing. I have stayed in numerous apartments in Beni and these are def my favourite.

This apartment was just fabulous! The views were to die for and everywhere was so clean and newly refurbished. The staff downstairs were polite, nothing was too much trouble, and they were always cleaning when we went in and out of the apartment. We have had a very restful and enjoyable holiday and would certainly rent this apartment next time we are in benidorm. Thank you to the cleaner too, we had clean bedding and towels twice while we were renting for the 10 days, so nice and considerate.
2012-09-30
Fantastic property.Very clean. Huge balcony. No air conditioning was a problem for us as it was unbearably hot over night. Plenty of sheets & towels left & changed once during our stay. The pool was meant to be open 10-8pm but closed at 5. Very annoying as the sun was still shining although & just lay on the balcony. Great restaurant under the apartments & a great supermarket as well. The keys have to be picked up from a different location & it is quite a walk away.
2012-09-29
Dave and linda
Great views , biggest let down was having to put money in meter to. Watch tv , room had not been cleaned on arrival so had to stand on balcony whilst it was cleaned
2012-09-29
Way too basic for apartment - no useful cooking tools, bad stove, cooking pans etc. The decoration of the appartment was like early 70ies, and can not classify as 3 star (which I believe La Caseta being).
2012-09-27
Fab apartments already booked for next year
2012-09-18
Julia
The property was fairly basic, but had everything you needed for self catering. One of the fans did not work very well in the bedrooms which was a pain as you could not keep the window open because of the mosqutoes at night. Having a washing machine was great especially as we had to wash our towels. The patio could be looked after better, had to prune the hedges before hanging out washing. The pool area was great and fairly quiet

Harris Family
Our second stay at La Garanciere. Another fantastic stop over with lovely food and good use of the pool. Our cottage was very comfortable and the children loved their loft room and double bed each! Although unable to cater for Coeliac diet our hosts were willing to cook the food we brought for this purpose

Gemelos 22 is in an ideal location and the apartment we stayed in was very spacious but i feel it would really benefit from an update now. Decor, furnishings and finishing touches could easily be updated and it would make a big difference. it would also be better if the air con unit was more central in the accommodation rather than just in the living room or they invested in a second unit

Only stayed one night but we were made to feel really welcome. Rooms was ready and clean. The location was superb would most definitely stay there again.
2012-08-23
Its up a big hill and its a killer, loads of Ants, cheap and what we wanted it for was good to party just no air condition. You clean it all your self, and just ask the girl or man down stairs for clean sheets or towels and toilet roll. just basic

The Lift took ages to come once you pressed the button and also there was no kettle in the apartment but was a washing machine , dish washer & microwave and also aircon that really kept the room cool it was like a fridge once we came back to the apartment after being out in the burning hot sun , would have been good if there was a safe in the room aswell .Wonderful view of the beach and surroundings couldnt ask for anymore ...

Very good value for money. Apartment was spacious and very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were on the 1st floor so quite noisy.

Very comfortable decor modern and in good shape

I am perhaps not the most suitable of people to write a review of the hotel as I have been involved in a dispute with the hotel owner to pay for alleged damage to five bed sheets. A friend in a fit of drunkenness, did throw up on his bed sheet, though the hotel has made a subsequent claim that this ruined four other bed sheets. The claim for me to pay 350 euros to replace these five sheets is beyond absurd. As I will go on to describe, this place is not a five star establishment. Abiding memories are of banisters that are near collapse (drunk individuals should tread with great care), a top floor room with no natural light as the window looked on to a brick wall and an interior to the hotel that is frankly, beyond dilapidated. Positive elements are that the bed sheets were clean (for those who did not throw up on them), the shower worked and the hotel is in Ypres, which is a lovely place. If you are on a budget this place may be worth considering. If you are willing to pay for decent accommodation, I would strongly recommend staying elsewhere.

I went with a group of friends aged from 29 to 44, some single some couples. The apartments were lovely. So clean and everything was new. The location was great too. We are defo going to stay at these apartments again next year.
2012-07-08
Requested repairs that needed attention on arrival, repairs never got repaired. The curtains in the lounge was supported at one end by string, the window in the back bedroom could not be locked as the handle was hanging off, not good when the apartment was on the second floor. Our apartment did not have aircon, so windows had to be left open for air, again not good when you are on the second floor, Kettles and toasters had to be hired, not even a tea towel to dry the crockery. There was no bedding or towel change in our weeks stay but my sister in law stayed the same week and her apaprtment did, no continuity.

Hotel was first class for all 24 of us ideally placed for beach shops and nite life will definitely stay here again
2012-07-02
Our recent trip to the carabellas apartments were first class the apartments were emaculate and great location there was everything you needed in the apartment i would definately book the same one we were allocated in block 3 apartment 9/4 and are looking at dates at present to return. My daughter collected the keys as we had a late arrival Thanks for all your help
2012-06-30
We had a brilliant time and a great apartment could not have asked for better location ,was well chuffed when saw it.everything anybody could want thanks again we will be sure to use again ,from 3 happy holidaymakers
2012-06-29
Stayed a week at this apartment if you are looking for 4 star accomodation then look elsewhere but if you are looking for a great little place that is clean and has amazing views then look no further. We chose one of the studios a good size for just the 2 of us, ok not proper beds camp style beds but they were comfy. Small kitchen with a 2 ring stove, where you could boil a kettle or even heat something up (but why when there are so many great places to eat nearby) there was a toaster as well. Good size bathroom. No aircondiotioning but as we were on the 22nd floor we just kept the patio door open it was wonderful to wake up in the morning to the sound of the sea. Did not use the pool the med was just outside the front door the best pool ever. And out the back gate and you are in the middle of all the action that the benidorm nightlife has to offer. The outside and public areas are kept immaculatly clean by the janitor there. Having to pick the key up at the Buana vista could be a bit of a pain to some but we got the transfer to drop us there so we only had to walk one way and we were able to drop the key off and pick up our deposit at the local office just 2 mins away and they looked after our luggage as well while we enjoyed our last morning. Will we book again most definately.
2012-06-29
The property was excellent - the downside was the distance between the key pick up point and the accommodation. We had to wait several hours in the heat of the day until we could get the keys as the office was closed and then get a taxi to the apartments. Similarly at the end of our stay we were unable to use the coach service to the aiport we had booked as it left before the office opened in the morning to return our keys and we had to pay extra for a taxi. I would not use this accommodation again for this reason.
2012-06-29
Stayed here a single parent with 4 children. Found the location good not to far to walk to where you need to be. Staff were friendly altho they didnt like kids playin with football even tho there aint much to damage and it was euro week and football fever! My one real concern was the pool is very deep. All in all we had a good holiday at these apartments. Would book again.
2012-06-06
2nd time we have stayed at Torre Yago - this year the apartment was brilliant - will definitely be booking again.
2012-06-02
First class
2012-05-23
Entry is along the side of the building and then around the back,entrance into the small non manned reception is by key and though the door is sprung it does not close fully on its own and needs that extra little push, potentially a safety hazzard should someone not realise and not do this. The side and back are lit, but one has to be watchfull when returning at night due to their remoteness. When we stayed in November 07 a man was attacked at the rear but he fought his attackers off. This made us aware, but if you do not know well! The apartment we stayed in this time march 08 booked for us by yourselfs was fine the oven did not work and two light bulbs had blown but hey it does not matter they could have easily been fixed had we asked, the apartment considering it was self catering lacked an electric kettle and a microwave and certain fixtures where hanging off the walls but these are minor things and one can knit pick forever. Love the apartments and do not wish to stay anywhere else. The apartments themselves are clean but in need of sprucing up here and there. The lock to the apartment is good. Patio door lock inside was non existent but did not matter as one cannot gain entrance to the apartment except by the door All in all you get what you pay for and the Mayra reflects this in the nicest possible way.The staff are most curtious though they do not speak english but this can be overcome with a little effort (Please see my note on your page)
2012-05-21
Great hotel. Staff friendly. Hotel had great location near bars, discos etc. Rooms fairly basic but functional. Great pool and food.

Read a lot of negativity about these apartments but we found them to be clean, spacious comfortable and in a great location. Romona was great she was very funny and helpful would definitely return the apartments are basic but great value for what you pay.
2012-05-12
It was clean and quiet, Once you shut the glass doors to the terrace the revely from the holiday makers was eliminated. The reception staff were very eager to please.
2012-04-23
Apartment were excellent very clean and modern grounds were just as good we will be glad to book there again
2012-04-05
A very nice apartment very clean and tidy with everything needed for our stay. Only problem is contacting the owners when guests arrive. There is no reception and no way to contact the Owner. From experience last year we went to the camera shop. They no longer look after the apartment but contacted the owner for us. Would suggest that a contact phone number for the owner be included with the booking.

It has everything you need except a hairdryer but that is not an issue, everybody is really friendly and helpful

Property did not have any stickers on glass doors making you aware of them.

Great location for a budget price. Right in the middle of the Old Town but close to all three beaches and ideal if you want to walk around because everything you want is close to hand. Beach a couple of minutes, English Bars 5 mins and the famous view and steps just minutes away too. The accomodation was good value and adequate for a couple. Air Con / Heating all worked, nice balcony, plenty of hot water and reasonably comfortable beds. Linen and towels fresh and clean, even had loo paper. This is not a quiet spot so you will not get an early night without the noise.

We arrived on the 21/12/2011 .about 90clock in the evening and had to go to a different hotel to pick our keys up which involved getting a taxi back to don miguel i.the accomadation was good and spacious but cold with only a small radiator and a tele which we had to pay for but could not get any english chanels but we did not go there to watch tele anyhow we felt very safe with secure gates and security great balcony with good view but dont get sun till late afternoon we stayed ther for 31 nights and enjoyed the company of our 2 daughters who joined us for the third week and they thought it was realy good as we were self catering which we all enjoyed as the super market down stairs was reasonly priced with fresh bread and veg every day.we had a great holiday but wont go back to this apartment again as we like to try different places but would recomend it for couples who want peace and quiet with a wonderful veiw and easy access to the beach
2012-01-12
Good value centrally located bungalows, but paper thin wall got a bit wearing after a while.

Liked these apartments the only thing missing was a hairdryer. Was a bit dissapointed we were in block 3 and never had an open balcony. It was a bit noisy above our apartment as there was a group of young Spanish boys and girls staying above and what sounded like a couple of dogs barking and walking around. but would stay here again.
2011-12-18
Good side: apartment is light and airy; I liked the (two!) balconies - interesting views; good size for one person; good wi-fi signal - was very useful; good cleaning service. Description on website accurate. Bad side: furniture and kitchen equipment are rather basic and rudimentary. The kitchen sink outlet pipe leaked, creating a smell in the kitchen. Beds exceptionally hard; sofas uncomfortable. Bathroom towels old and hard. Fairly good quality accommodation. I would use these apartments again.

We stayed in December, there was only one small electric radiator and this was not very good. We have stayed at these apartments a few years ago but then it was the begining of summer. The apartment was very cold and the windows on the balcony did not close properly therefore there was a constant draught coming in. Also there was an ironing board but no iron and although we were told to return the keys by 10.30 the cleaner knocked at 9am wanting to be in so we never had time for anything to eat or drink before leaving...Thank goodness for MacDonalds which is just below these apartments.
2011-12-08

Very clean, accommodation basic but plenty of kitchen equipment for self-catering. 3rd time my husband has stayed in these apartments since July because it is central to most of the night life. Would definitely recommend to friends.
2011-11-30
Tired and in need of a makeover. 4 adult males but beds designed for juniors,small and very thin mattresses. Adequate space but all furniture very tired. Limited wardrobe space in one room only. Second time at Vera Cruz, last year appt on 5th floor and much better equipped. This year despite asking for low floor we got 16th. One membe rof party suffers vertigo so uncomfortable time on enclosed balcony. Great location and fortunate that this year we got key deposit back day before we travelled home as offices not open at time of coach departure, Will probably book again but unsure as to who with.Last year booked with travel republic and we got the low floor we requested,

This accommodation was fantastic would recommend to anyone the downside is key collection we arrived at midnight and had to get a taxi to the old town to collect the key. on departure we had to vacate the property by 10am and get another taxi to the old town we had to find the ideal office tours for deposit collection all in all the day of departure was a nightmare as we were not allowed to leave our cases anywhere...unfortunatley for this reason i wouldnt stay at these apartments again but for comfort and locality i couldnt fault them they were absolutley gorgeous.

These appartments are beautiful the only faults we could find where there was no kettle (but we took our own ) and in the utility bit the grill didnt seem strong i would not advice letting children in there
2011-10-24
We have stayed at Gemols4 with a different company, the apartments are standard, this one was bad, there was a crack in the bath and sink, this caused a leak to downstairs,this was very basic for furniture ,beds vey uncomfortable and no iron.
2011-10-24
PUblic areas and lifts are well maitained and clean. Appartment is well below the standard expected. No Servicing of the room was carried out during our stay. The appartment especially bathroom requires a deep clean and also routine maid service. No kettle in appartment, bathroom door not lockable
2011-10-24
The apartment was in need of an update, but it was very clean and would certainly book again.
2011-10-23

Well worn furnishings (mattress on the bed was a bit uncomfortable) but spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need - even an iron/ironing board! Fabulous views from the balcony and Levante beach was on the doorstep. We will certainly book these apartments again (despite the mattress), and I have already recommended them to my friends and family.

babs ( LITTLEBOROUGH)
Excellent location,next to the square,good supermarket next door,5 mins walk to the beach.staff very helpful,good views from the balcony only 8 floors high.tv free+safe deposit box.good secure apartments,already left deposit for next year,only complaint was the beds very hard and uncomfy.could do to upgrade beds,but excellent value...
2011-10-23
Ideally situated from the point of view of aspect (lovely west facing balcony),proximity to the old town, nearness of large supermarket and very low if any noise. Although it is now a little dated and tired it offers more than adequate accommodation and facilities.

This is a shame the apartment are in good area but basic is not the word .the bed was mattress on wooden board chairs had holes in seats. wardrobe was patched where hole had been made curtains living room stained .light ceiling no shade. no wall or bed lightss .one mirror in whole place. one picture. badly badly in need of refurb asked about tv which we should have had she said we could have one but would be no point as it was only spanish but she did give us toaster got two keys one our door. one outside should not have botherd just pushed open any time bed clean other wise would have been gone shame really just needs care and could be really good apts. please clean them up staff nice
2011-10-11
No comment! informed 1 week before going that we could not stay in these
2011-10-11
Very spacious appartment enough beds to sleep 8 people 1 en-suite shower room with private toilet and bidet very nice but the other shower room and toilet in need of updating. The appartment has 2 balconies I dont know where the parking would be, only spanish tv not very quiet as located opposite a primary school. Would use again as felt very secure and roomy

We was double booked so was in alternative accomodation . The apartment was EL CIRCO that was lovely except NO POOL OR TV this was disappointing as had my 5 year old grandson with us. Other hotels do not let you use the pool,but this apartment had a lovely seaview so hepled to make up for the loses.
2011-09-26
Despite its isolation there were no refreshments available apart from breakfast. There was no guests lounge although the bedroom was small. There was no local tourist information or advice. These deficiencies would be easy to correct, and the hosts were very pleasant.

daisys grandad
The property is excellent, spacious, and well maintained. the only problem that i forsee is why oh why do they allow stag & hen parties to use these superb apartments, they will be ruined befor long. also round the pool, the gangs of drunk stag and hen parties recovering from there previous nights partying ruined the atmosphere.i would only go back to these apartments in the future if they stopped the stag/hen party culture.

Just got back from this dump (sat 24/09/2011) I would highly recommend you DONT stay at this hotel. the place is full of ants and weirdos. up the top of cardiac hill(just behind gemelos 28) the lift to reception doesnt work and the slope is so steep the taxi wont take you to reception so have to climb approx 100 steps that are all broken and is pitch black at night cos the lights dont work there is no security, the reception area is open 24hrs and we had tramps sleeping in the corridors and stair wells. sink was blocked and no plug for the bath grrrr. chairs was being thrown from the balconys as well as sick, pizzas + kebabs that greated you the next morning all over the place. this place really is the pits. please spend an extra few euros and get a decent place. the bed clothes are curtains, no kettle or tv(prob been chucked from balcony) was woken each morning about 5am by people arguing + fighting. this place is by far the worst hotel in benidorm!!!!!
2011-09-25
Fantastic accomodation very spacious, great location only minutes away from all nightlife and three streets back from the beach, no balconie but all windows slide back letting you enjoy the sun
2011-09-24
maureen & wils
We would like to thank terry and anne at HotelsAbroad for their time and effort answering my emails and queries, excellent customer service. the apartment itself could do with a little refurbishment, ie paint and new sofa bed and the curtains in the balcony area are really dated and torn in places. we had a few concerns and reported them as they happened to the office below the loixmar apartment, and in no way interfered with our holiday. the apartment was very safe(9f)with 2 locked doors before we even got to the flat and then there was a gate then the front door. i as a female felt really safe if hubby was out later than me. we would go back to these apartments, but maybe not 9f unless it was modernised a little. i made great use of the washing machine iron and ironing board, clothes horse, and the massive wardrobe in the balcony area. all in all we had a great time. pool was only opened for 4 days out of our 11days. but they were retiling the whole pool. office downstairs gave me a key to use the aquarium apartments pool just across the road. i forgot to get the young girls name, but she was fantastic and sorted out all our problems we had. 4 in 4 days!!! toaster fused all the electrics, she got us a new 1 but that didnt work. lamp in room didnt work, curtain completely came off the wall in balcony, and bathroom bulb need replacing. but weather was fantastic and we were really close to all amenities, just what we wanted.... thanks everyone.xx

2011-09-19
We have stayed here 3 times and although it might not seem too good from the outside once inside you come to realise that it is clean, friendly and and spacious. The apartments themselves are very clean, comfortable and the air conditioning works perfectly in the hot weather. Each apartment has a safe to rent (6 euro for 5 nights)so coupled to the deadlocked doors you feel safe too. I would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone.
2011-09-19
The same group of friends have been impressed with the property for the past 2 years and will be the first place we look for again for our next visit to Benidorm! Very clean and spacious and excellent value for money.

This is a property that is right at the very top of cardiac hill, not for the faint hearted and definately a no go with children and pushchairs, as the lifts dont work upto the apartments. a lot of workers live in this block which i suppose is ok. the view was unbelievable though.
2011-09-18
We stop here regularly, only complaint since we booked for 8 nights, there was no oven in the kitchen, therefore no grill and limited cooking options.
2011-09-18
The property was excellent but organisation once we landed in Alicante was poor we booked a private transfer who was there on time but instead of taking us to collect the keys dropped us at apartments, then took us to agents office which was closed so we had to collect keys from a hotel. They did not have a safe key for us so we had to carry all our belongings on us until the Monday when the agents office opened on the Monday
2011-09-17
Furniture a little dated but had everything we needed and more.
2011-09-02
Dinner was taken at the table with the family, so very friendly and informal.

Good property for our family .but just a hob and toaster for cooking on .found cheap and cheerful bar very good .cheap to eat out but drink can be expensive .had one change of towels and sheets during weekly stay .just bare essencials in flat but we coped .the booking and transport were great had no problems at all .good stopping of point was rio park just down the road .no shops near by especially a supermarket you do need one .

A nice hotel with friendly (if overworked) staff in a scenic and tranquil location. Leave time to take a walk around the area. The only let down was the dinner menu: The prices were higher than we had experienced anywhere else in the previous 2 weeks - Set menus €19.50; 24.50; 29.50 & higher. I had the €24.50 menu (but €5 extra for a dessert) and the quality of food was disappointingly plain for the price; moreover, the service was slow (1 waitress for 11 tables and I suspect the kitchen was similarly manned). Acid test: would I visit again, probably, for the location and tranquility but not for the food; however, breakfast quality & quantity was fine at a fair price
2011-08-25
There were no ensuite facilities as expected. Shared a bathroom with all the owners cosmetics etc still in situ. Bath not cleaned to a good standard. Had to use a downstairs separate loo with not enough privacy or a washbasin. Booked a twin room for our 2 teenage daughters - offered a small double bed for them to share not ideal, luckily it was only for one night. Not going back.

A really lovely B&B with a fantastic swimming pool and very friendly owners will definitely be returning some time and would recommend to friends.
2011-08-24
A wonderful old chateau, generally in good condition though a little run-down in places. The beds were very comfortable so we slept well. Lots of character.
2011-08-24
A lovely barn conversion, very comfortable. The hosts are really friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent with fresh honey and homemade jams. Highly recommended.

Weed family
We had a fantastic time here. Highly recommend. The only slight fought was the dirctions to the property it was a bit misleading. Not enough details.
2011-08-23
This was an extremely friendly B&B. However it was VERY Rustic and the accomodation was quite basic. The setting and hosts were excellent. There was no choice for dinner. What was on the menu was what was to be eaten but it was locally sourced and a lot of the produce was made in-house, plus 2 bottles of wine, and a magnificent cheese board. So if you like a basic accomodation, with local produce for that authentic french feel - this is the place for you! We would go back.

I only stayed at the property for an over night stop enroute to Calais. It is a quiet, quaint little property with a great deal of character. Not really suitable for a longer stay if you have young children.
2011-08-08
Regret to have to say that in over 10 years of travelling in France this was the worst hotel we have stayed at Extremely basic accomodation - at least we had a folding plastic door on our bathroom - our adult daughters room had no bathroom door at all! An over bath shower in our room had no shower curtain resulting in a very wet bathroom after use A 4.30am wake up call as the market in the square was set up should be a warning to anyone staying at this hotel on a Friday night. Not sure where the hotel parking is located as we were told to park in the market square itself - and then had to move again to ensure that we parked ouside the extent of the following days market Breakfast was a sparse offering too Not good value at all
2011-08-08
Helpful staff who struggled a little with teh concept of the rooms having been prepaid. Well equiped rooms included kettles - very unusual in France but very welcome. Triple glazing ensured any external noise was kept to a minimum
2011-08-08
Very hospitable. Weather made it feel a bit cold and damp!

A super over-night stop on my first night in France. Friendly and relaxed. Nice, peaceful environs for stretching legs (and eyes!) after the rush from Calais and some lovely countryside around. The food was very good. I definitely will use it again.

These apartments were great value for being so central. We bought a fan and did without the air con which would have been 10euros per day and it was fine except when getting ready to go out..ladies and hairdriers..!!..so would DEFINATELY hire air con in high season if we were to return high season!! Our apartment faced "The Square" and it didnt bother us, in fact it was great because the sun was on the balcany until 8.30pm..but if you are non drinking early bedders, ask for a beach facing apartment!! WE would be very happy to use these apartments again.
2011-07-31
We were really pleased and we will be booking again for next year

Very basic, in need of an urgent refurbishment, but saying that it suited our needs perfectly - a base where we slept and showered. Kitchen equipment insufficient to cook anything more than egg on toast. No TV/Radio. Beds very army-like. But staff (receptionists) were friendly and very helpful.

These apartments were idealy positioned for our holiday but needed updating, didnt spoil it for us as we were only there 4 days but wouldnt want much longer there

These apartments are very new and in good condition. The air conditioning is at no extra cost and is excellent in all rooms. The sun beds are free, but go quickly and it is good you can takes balls etc into the pool. Location is central, but quite and I would recommend these apartments.

Just fab location bus stop out side the main entrance just fell out of bus after days at the parks the beach is lovely the hotel is more expensive than other selfcatering but well worth the extra alot of stag and hen parties and goes on to the morning but this hotel has none of this it is the only hotel i never had to get a safe for my money you had to use your hotel key to get in the back door and also to door to the hall and into the lift the staff was so helpful great nigh life 10 minutes walk behind the hotel shows and acts the food is great and can be found all over great holiday

Apts are excellent if you are disabled, my father hires a mobility scooter which fits in lift right into apt, which means he can come and go where and when he wants without having to rely on anybody else

We requested a third floor apartment with a sea view and were told it could not be guaranteed. When we arrived we were given exactly what we requested. The position of the apartments at the beginning of the "walking street" was fairly noisy but we knew that and it caused no problems.
2011-07-25
Very friendly owners but the bedroom and house needs cleaning and decorating. Very good dinner though.

Perfect location near yellow brick road close to all the bars but not to close for all the noise myself and partner and my 83 year old mother in a two bedroomed apartment perfect.
2011-07-22
Very pretty location. House full of antiques and bric a brac, like staying in a museum. Delightful hostess and food to die for. Dined with other guests. It is an advantage to be able to speak a little french.
2011-07-22
Stayed two nights, dining with the owners and other guests,(English, French and French/Canadian) excellent hospitality. Lovely food.
2011-07-22
Lovely location in centre of attractive village with magnificent abbey. Spacious well equipped room. However, this property is for sale and the owner ,though pleasant,was contantly making this known and trying to sell the property.

The villa was great bit of a steep hill could have done with sunloungers was dissappointed with maid she just stood at the door while i stripped the beds for the clean sheet to go on then she just handed me all the bedding to do my self( thought i was on holiday) the office to get the keys from was at the other side of benidorm not what you want after travelling a good twenty minute walk.

THESE APARTMENTS ARE WELL LOCATED AND DELIVER THE SERVICES AS DESCRIBED IN THE BROCHURE. THEY ARE SECURE AND PROVIDE THE BASIC EQUIPMENT YOU NEED FOR YOUR STAY. THE POOL IS ON THE SMALL SIDE, AND IF IN OUR CASE, A LARGE GROUP HAPPEN TO BE STAYING THERE AT THE SAME TIME AND DECIDE THEY WILL POOL HOG,THEN YOU WILL STRUGGLE FOR PLACES AROUND THE POOL. GREAT ACCOMODAION FOR THE PRICE BENIDORM APARTMENTS CHARGE AS OTHER COMPANIES SEEM TO CHARGE MUCH MORE.

The reservation arrangements between you and the hotel worked fine although the inabaility to e-mail the hotel was not the best. The room size, facilities, cleanliness was very good and its location is excellent. A very short taxi ride from train station to the hotel and an even shorter walk to the river promenade walks. easy access to town centre centre streets. The proximity of the hotel to the fast train lines was not a problem as the double/triple glazing easily kept out the noise. The proprietor and her staff were very helpful and efficient. The 2 downsides were the breakfast was limited though sufficient-just cereals and cold meats. It was obvious that the hotel proprietor and her staff were heavy smokers.All the common parts, reception and dining room smelt of tobacco smoke and filled ashtrays were in several locations. The bedrooms did not smell of smoke. It was certainly the major adverse point about the hotel.

On arrival (2nd year) we found the washing machine bearing still not fixed from last year (sounded like jet landing) and filthy dispenser tray, water leaking from under boiler, grout round shower disgusting, seat broken on dining chair, lights not working, 2 tiles still unstuck in hall, kettle too scaled up to use, dirty light switches and wall in sitting room + few other minor things including still no microwave or toaster. Not enough glass tumblers. Most things dealt with within 3 days (except grout and chair) including new washing machine. Shower and water heater not sorted. Still found the accommodation reasonable for a budget stay but probably WONT stay next year even though grounds and location superb. The manager did get a lot of jobs done quite quickly. Local agent said that most renters were young and did not take any care of the property. BUT THIS IS NOT MY PROBLEM! The cleaners should check everything and do the job they are paid for. Regards, CCurtis Shame - just a little attention and extras would make it good value.

As we were on the 19th floor with 2 children it was brilliant as the balcony was closed in and safe.There was plenty of bedding and clean towels provided and to have a washing machine was a real bonus.The only complaint we can make is about the middle sized swimming pool having green algi round the side.

Spacious, comfortable, clean apartments, fantastic views, central location, this is the second time in 3mths my family have stayed at the don miguel 1 appartments and will be returning again without a doubt, they may not be 4 star but if thats what your looking for book elsewhere dont moan about trivial things, you get what you pay for and these apartments were excellent value for money

Good clean accommodation; fine for an overnight stop when travelling through Switzerland. I think they had increased their rates but probably failed to advise you so no problem over their accepting the amount you had stated in your confirmation email to me

La Pommeraie- excellent directions and very nice accommodation although the staircase was rather a challenge. A good evening meal; just one point when we came to pay they had not included the evening meal cost and were rather surprised when we showed them details of our reservation. It would be helpful if you could discuss with them exactly what you will be paying over and how much they need to recover from guests. We have of course paid them for the evening meal.

2011-06-07
Although not the most modern of apartments we had a great time there , Receptionist was very helpful and welcoming too.It was very clean if a little old fashioned furniture but at end of day most of the apartments we have stayed in are the same, but for location and price this cant be beaten we are booking again for 2012 and staying 10 dys this time . We have been coming for 7 years and this is best place for location, helpfulness and price.
2011-06-06
No restaurant.this was the dirtiest property we have ever been to.receptionist friendly and helpful but the assistant manager was rude,unhelpful and only agreed to change our apt after a battle. the second room was only slifgtly better than the first.we spent 2 hours cleaning. it should be advertised as the new filty payma hotel. we left after 6 days---could not take anymore

2011-06-05
My only problem with this hotel is that we arrived in Spain at midnight and arrived at the accomdation around 1 am only to find that we had to wait untill the office on the prom away from the hotel didnt open untill 9 ish and not knowing Benidorm took awhile to find it even though we were given a map to say we were shattered by the time we got into the accommodation is an understatement that being said i cant wait to return ,its very clean a nice QUIET pool area and friendly staff. GET THE KEYS SORTED please and well done.
2011-06-04
Very large, clean, spacious property central to everything. We would definately stay there again.
2011-06-03

We realy enjoyed our stay ,,,myself husband daughter and nephew and fiancee went,,was out off this world,,booking everything was great,,the only downfall i would say is how far i had to go to get keys,,and what time u can get in appartment as we arrived in benidorm at 12..30...walked long way to get key got there and said cant get in till 5,,,.would b better if u could get some to meet tu with keys,,,but will stay again,,we are bookin for october this year

Very well positioned for beach and Bars yet far enough away to be quiet. Rooms were larger than expected. Only problem showers got cold very quickly. Would come back with friends or a family hoilday.

This is the 3rd time I have used these apartments along with friends. Rooms are clean, staff are very good and meals are cheap and basic. If you want 5star you have to pay the price. These apartments are cheap and cheerful and I wouldnt hesitate in recommending them. In fact we are going again to them next year.

Got back last wk after a 5 day break. This apartment was great. easy enough room for 4+ adults and a brilliant sea view. If you spread the cost between 4 then its, really very cheap. It was well equiped including a washer. Only down side is one set of keys per apartment(£50 deposit was accepted and repaid on departure). Would defo go again.

Great location, put if you come on a satureday ,check in is a nightmare ,had to get a taxi up town to get key,cost of taxi €15 ,and the guy in the reception no english and just unhelpful..other than that ,cheap and clean
2011-05-21
The gardens and the pool are excellent. The appartments are well stocked and appointed. Key pick up can be a bit hit and miss. The boast of 6 new Digital channels on the TV is a bit misleading if you are English, as there is only one english language channel to choose from!!!. On th whole would I recommend to a friend YES good location good appartments good gardens and pool and close to the shops and action.

More attention needed to comfort of guests in bedroom and bathroom i.e. there was no soap in the bathroom, no comfortable chair in bedroom and no full length mirror

We could not stay for long as it was a ferry crossing stop off, we would have liked to have stayed a little longer to see more of the area. The room was welcoming and very welcome after a very long drive

We have stayed twice at the apartments and find them basic but clean and have what we need. We dont eat in flat as food in Benidorm is so cheap. It is quite noisy which we dont mind as we love the night life.Not good for families as no facilities. Suits us fine . We are aged 70 & 84 !!

Enjoyed our stay there, It had all that was required for our stay.
2011-04-19
It was not a cozy place, the beds were awful, the "neighbors" was very loudly speaking and we heard every word of their TV-set. This is never a place I will stay on again. In this special apartment there wasn´t any place to hang towels in the bathroom, because it was broken... The kitchen didn´t have any electric kettle for boiling water, and it took us 25 minutes to have warm water for cooking eggs and then you should cook the eggs... So it took about 40 minutes to boil a couple of eggs...! The decor and atmosphere I want to give minus 10...

BASIC ACCOMODATION GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY. POOL WAS EMPTY THE TIME WE WERE THERE BUT OVERALL HAD A GOOD TIME P.S PLEASE CHANGE CHAIRS IN BALCONY SO UNCOMFORTABLE

The apartment was basic but very good. It had 2 bedrooms of quit good size,lounge, bathroom,kitchen & an enclosed balcony with sliding windows The view from the apartment outstanding. The kitchen had everything, Full cooker(hob o.k. oven slow)large fridge/freezer, micro wave,toaster, iron/ & board. No air-conditioning, & the tv was the awful pay ones. We asked for 2 sets of keys with no problem, we also got our deposit back a day early with no problem.

I could never ask for a better apartment. right on the beach with the best views in the world. Lovely balcony to sit and relax. Stayed for 12 days and I was very happy there. Very secure. picking up keys easy to get to alone the promonade. Lovely restaurants right outside. I will stay there again and the price was fantastic.

Excellent appartments, however there is no reception and you have to pick up the keys from another location which is 5 mins drive,fortunately we knew the area so found it with no problems if you didn,t have a car it would be difficult
2011-02-05
Wendy & Barry
Weather turned cold during our stay, the small heater was inadequate. Mattresses although new, need upgrading to better quality, uncomfortable. Overall, good value for money and would stay again. The caretaker at reception was most welcoming and obliging.

Excellent location for anyone wanting to stay in the old town of Benidorm. Apartments excellent. No cleaner service but that did not worry us. We would stay there again. Not suitable for young children as it is right in the middle of the old town.
2011-01-14
All night traffic noise from mainroad at rear, very cramped shower-room and overwhelming smell of tobacco smoke in corridors and room.
2011-01-12

It was good value for money but we had a few problems. The knob on bathroom door kept coming off and patio doors would not lock. We reported the matter and they fixed bathroom door but patio doors would still not lock. Our kettle went bust when we were there and we got a new kettle. The reception was friendly enough but one man was not friendly. I would stay there again it was a central location to everything. It could do with fixing the curtains as they were hanging off but it was good value for money.
2011-01-12
miriam and dave
It was a basic apartment as we had expected. Could have been a bit cleaner. The oven had not been emptied of crumbs and the shelves needed a wipe-over but nothing serious. The pans were not all usable and could have done with a small milk pan and a non-stick frying pan but the office could not help us. But we managed ok. All in all very good value for money.
2011-01-07
Very good very clean and everything you wanted for holliday. Porter was very friendly and really helpfull

Very cold-no heating except for a calor gas heater in the lounge-towels changed twice during the week but not the sheets.No mirror in 2nd bathroom so 4 young women crowding round 1 mirror is not good. we had no hot water -friendly repair man came and went but still no water so cold showers and no hot water to wash pots! There is no reception so hard to get hold of anyone-we will not be booking this apartment again

baz & mo
The property was very nice and room was clean. very spacious and cooking facilities good. excellent location. had the tv on once or twice but ate our money...lol. did not realise these still existed.ha . The last few apartments we had been in had free tv with few sky channels. this did not effect our holiday as was out most of the time , but would have been nice to see a bit of news while getting ready. As we were there in november it was a little chilli at night.There was a heater but it did not work..i suppose we should have asked the care-taker. Will be going back next year to these apartments god willing.

Delightful old mill with very friendly and helpful staff. The room was very clean and pleasantly furnished. The rush of water from the streams immediately outside the rooms was very soporific. Dinner was very good indeed!

Thank you for a excellant service. We booked our break at the last minute and member staff in your office was so helpful. Plenty of space in the apartment for 4 adults and excellant view from the balconey. Near to all amenities. I will certainly be back and recommend the apartments to friends and family.
2010-10-22
For 2* hotel it had everything we needed. As it very hot 37o it was great to have the aircon in the room. Swam in the hotel pool, which was cleaned every morning.

The apartment is quite spacious kitchen to small for two people to cook in ax it is self catering. The decor gone down hill tiles falling of walls on bslcony. Balcony doors a danger no stickers on them, so hence had a mishap with them. I find its gettin more run down each time we go decor, not enough essentials in kitchen, some switches dnt work, tne lamp the tele does not work even after puttin money in it. Dont get me wrong dont go on holiday to watch tele but when its rainin you need something. Only issued with one key a big problem when theres four of you.
2010-10-13
Appears to have changed hands recently and still not got act together. Restaurant advertised but non-existent on a Friday night. Breakfast only modest. Staff did not make any effort. Not up to standard for a Hotels Abroad
2010-10-13
This place is a little gem. The most friendly, accommodating hosts who could not do enough and treated you like a friend stoppping. The food was first-class.
2010-10-12
Set on vineyard in nice setting. Pleasant people. Room very small and basic. No evening meals. Free parking. Short walk into village.
2010-10-12
We feel this was the most disappointing. Very old hotel with large dining area and good food. Proprietors and staff very pleasant and helpful. Room was very small and basic and right across the road was a four-line railway track with passenger and goods trains every 10 to 15 minutes. Therefore very noisy at night. It would probably pay to stop before this venue or after the Gotthard Pass.
2010-10-12
Lovely setting and area. Unfortunately our room was at the rear so only view was over building works and roofs. Although you can park your car in their small yard, you are charged 5 euros per night.
2010-10-12
Lovely B&B in a mountain chalet set in a beautiful setting amongst mountains. The lady owner and her daughter could not have been nicer or more helpful (despite limited English) - even cooked us an evening meal.
2010-10-12
Apartment was good, basic but clean and good position on front. We were disappointed with sea view as we were on the side 3rd floor and our view was obstructed by trees.

The apartments was very nice .on the Thursday before we came home 4 out of 5 got bite by bugs .We reported it and they changed our apartment and got someone in to clean the apartment out.apart from this we was very pleased withit .We would go back there again .We ave been there a few times before and we have never had this before.

GOOD APARTMENT FOR THE MONEY.BUT WHY IS IT THAT WINDOWS ARE NEVER CLEANED ! WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO PASS ON OUR COMMENDATION TO THE TWO PORTERS WE HAD IE PACO & CHRISTOBEL THEY WERE EXCELLENT, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. MOST APARTMENTS WE HAVE STAYED IN HAVE NOT BEEN MANNED ! ONLY A DUEL HOB IN KITCHEN - MAY BE NOT ENOUGH FOR SOME.

Hotel in middle of town undergoing extensive renovation to main reception area, not seemingly the bedrooms. Our bedroom was small, dark blue painted walls, a seperate toilet one could hardly get into, and an inside bathroom. All in all rather disappointing.

Exalent good clean we will be back around christmas we realy enjoyed the stay
2010-09-18
The apartments acintur are advertised as front line they are not front line they are on a side street but in saying that we could not fault the apartment it had everything you could need for your holiday the only down side was the price although advertised as a deluxe apartment it was very nice and clean but no way was it worth 686 euros plus 50 euro cleaning bill for this reason alone i will book an hotel next time

Decor a bit dated - could do with microwave and fan. Very well looked after by Manageress Ramona who is very efficient and helpful. Bit rowdy at times with stag and hen parties coming in early morning but this is our 4th year there and suits us.

An agreeably basic hotel in a village that seemed wonderfully quiet,until we discovered that all night long trucks used the small D road through the narrow main street as a rat run from, I think, Strasbourg to the main Autoroute 20 km away!!! The hotel is on a very noisy corner!

This is not really for families, when we went it was full of gangs of Italian lads and was really noisy at night/overnight, other than that the property was absolutely fine and good value for money.

We had adjoining rooms for 3 children.One of the beds was a putyouup which was very uncomfortable. As a stop off hotel it was fine for our purposes.

Lovely hotel and friendly staff breakfast on the roof terrace was fantastic
2010-08-12
The building need a refub and the lifts are very small and scary.Parking is quite limited and very tight sometimes. I do believe ALL properties nowadays should have the bear essentials and A KETTLE and A TOASTER should be provided. DO THIS AND YOU HAVE GOT IT RIGHT!!!!

BASIC ROOM BUT OK FOR HOW MUCH TIME IS SPENT IN THEIR.BIGGEST FAULT THE COOKER IS RUN OFF A SMALL GAS BOTTLE SO IT TAKES AGES JUST TO DO TOAST! NO KETTLE BEST TO BUY A CHEAP ONE IF NOT THAT ALSO TAKES AGES TO BOIL ON GAS APPART FROM THAT GREAT !!!!

A very typical one night stop hotel, easy to find, staff friendly and helpful
2010-07-08
Group of 6 girls (women) celebrating their 50th birthdays and we had a ball. would recommend this apartment for all of the needs within benidorm. Would not hesitate to go back
2010-07-06
Last year we stayed at La Bersace on the way down to Burgundy and on the way back. We were so pleased with it that we booked it again for two nights this year and were not disappointed. Nothing had changed. It is not luxury accommodation, but clean and comfortable and is extremely good value for money. Situated in a very unspoilt agricultural village close to the motorway, 150 miles from Calais, it is ideal for an overnight stop for us when heading into France. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, M and Mme Ducat are a splendid team and look after their guests well. Her cooking is excellent, the four course set dinner at €18 would be hard to beat and we always eat there. We shall certainly stay there again next year.

This B&B was exceptional. The setting was very beautiful, and the dinner was the best meal we had during our entire three weeks in France.

This was my 4th visit to these apartments The kitchens are well equipped this one included a washer which we found very useful for the towels. The fridge is a good size.It is clean and spacious.The balcony was the full length of the apartment with a fantastic sea view. There are 8 people and we have 2 apartments and not 1 person has anything negative to say about them. Will be booking the same next year.

A very pleasant B&B, with a friendly host and hostess. The evening meal was en famille with several other guests, and the conversation in a mixture of French and English went on till 10 pm. This is not an easy property to find, but my sat. nav. records it as being at N. 45.93135 E. 4.13688

We stayed at the Avenida early June, location could not have been better. However we did ask for a change of apartment as our family is young and it meant we would retiring early to our rooms, so we request a balcony with a view. We were changed on the fourth day and to my surprise a much nicer and more spacious apartment which made our holiday. Overall, I would definately recommend these apartments to others especially value for money and location (not decor).

John Gough
Being in the centre of a village, it was unusually easy to find. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful, and the house was full of interesting paintings and sketches.

Carrie
This apartment was perfect for our needs and in such a convenient location. The pool was delightful and the gardens attractive and the scent from the flowers deliciously heady. Sitting on the balcony was entertaining - large numbers of police adding to ones sense of security and ticketing illegal parkers. Definitely will go back next year, hopefully for 2 weeks. Only thing lacking was a microwave with grill - hardly major. Internet access would be good too but there is a cafe/bar with free access just across the road! Could do with a house book, maybe. Super!
2010-06-28
This property is in great position for beach and night life. Kitchen and bathroom are on the small side but adequate, warm water all the time for showers. Swimming pool was excellent we had it to ourselves.One set of keys is not enough for a property this size, other wise excellent.
2010-06-28

It was ok but not easy to find, with no parking facilities. I used an expensive underground park. Also difficult to find the road out of Rennes to St Malo. There were no signs showing St Malo until we got into the north side of Rennes.

The window above the sink had about a years grime. electric kettle would have been much better.pool not opening till 11 oclock was bad idea.but all in all got what I paid for.

We were allocated room 7 on the 3rd floor,apartment was clean and tidy,fridge door needs replacing,no english on tv,the major problem was the bedroom, 2 single beds with no room at sides or in the center!my wife has frozen shoulder,and had to climb in and out of bed,this was very painfull.im now looking for a room for 6wk nov/dec hols.sorry this was not good enough!!

Good sized accommodation but now requires refurbishing as it is getting abit sad and badly needs updating.

This was a great property in a first class location. The only comment I would made is close balcony windows at night as it can get noisy in the street outside after discos close
2010-04-12
We have a small dog so this may have affected the room we were allocated. The room was dark with 1 samll window in an alcove. It was clean but because it was so drab we did not spend much time in this room. The restaurant/bar was very pleasant and I would use the restaurant again but not the accomodation if the same room was allocated.

The apartment itself was spacious and clean, with a nice view of the sea and coast. There is no central heating in any of the rooms, just a couple of heaters. The boiler wasnt very good at heating the water either. There were no reception staff or night porters seen at anytime during the stay and there were some areas of building that were unfinished.

Nice apartment given a top floor south facing. Did hear neighbours moving around and doors are noisy when closing. On a main road from the old town so street traffic noisy and bin men are around from 11pm till 1am. Free satilite TV is not English mainly local spanish freeview. 150euros deposit is steep but understandable given quality.

Mrs Guy
We were unsure what to expect after reading some reviews, but were delighted with our apartment.No one can complain when you have a leather suite, a dishwasher, a washer & a dryer. Very tastefully decorated & clean. The only thing missing was a kettle which we bought & left for other people to use. Would VERY highly recommend to anyone.
2010-01-25
It was a terrible room, dirty floors, electric socket hanging off wall, graffiti on balcony wall, there was no t.v no micro wave, no washing machine.

The only issue that we had was that there was only 1 set of keys and by the time the tour shop opened due to the holidays it was the wed before we could get another set at which time we didnt bother but 1 set of keys is inconvenient.
2009-11-23
Had and absolutely fantastic time. The owners of the apartments were fantastic. Very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely use the Maja Apts again.
2009-11-21

I WOULD RECOMMEND THESE APTS THE APT WE RENTED WAS EXCELLENT WILL BE GOIN BACK THERE SHORTLY
2009-11-18
The only complaint I have is the collection of the keys we had to go into the old town for these and leave deposit. Then for collection of deposit we had to go to Ideal Travel which was some distance away. Why cannot we leave deposit next door where we paid for our safe,or leave the keys with the cafe next door. Everything aside we enjoyed our holiday and would book these apartments again.
2009-11-18

The aparment was nice clean and qiuet,needs to get some aircondioning thow,recepstion wasnt very helpfull as they didnt speak english,and the out side of the building could do with an uplift it doesnt look very nice when u look up at the apartments,but other then that it was lovly the veiw was brilliant,and close to all shops and right on the beach,we had a lovly holiday,thank u,

The property is in a fabulous location easy access to everywhere lovely apartment very clean and spacious with lovely seaviews the only downside was the miserable staff on reception not at all helpful and quite igonorant
2009-11-18
We have stayed at the varacruz on a several ocasions, it is situated in a fantastic location close to bars restraunts shops etc,and great views over the beech, we find the apartments to be basic but they are clean confortable and quiet,great holiday for the price.

MARK HILLS
No kettle and limited kitchen equipment for a 3 bed that could cater for 8 people. A family with children would struggle as no plugs in sinks or bath and very limited hot water. after 1 of our party had showered the renmaining 5 had cold water only. Views and location good although internal decor is dated and had not been improved from our visit last year. the appartment needs a lick of paint and some small upgrades to bathrooms and kitchen, otherwise a good base for a short break.
2009-11-16

While the property, and furnishings was dated and the decor in need of a lick of paint, (one sofa was bad, filthy and needs throwing out) the beds,towels and linen were clean and overall not too bad
2009-11-09
Pam
Just be careful the outside gate does not need a key to get out when you book out of the property. I nearly made a mistake- being alone I had to wedge the gate open with my case whilst nipping the key back to reception. I could have been stuck between the two doors!
2009-10-30
benidorm
I was not very impressed with having to pay into a meter to use the tv. could not use cooker had no means of lighting gas on stove. Very little kitchen equipment. like a fish squir to use for frying eggs. To use the microwave had to keep unpluging the fridge freezer. no visitors or info back or guidence book in apartment. like how to use washing machine.

The appartment was very well equipped and very spacious,although it was a very tall block the lifts were very reliable the swimming pool area is very well laid out with nice grounds and plenty of sunbeds.It is well situated with only a few minutes walk to the beach and the centre with shops on the doorstep
2009-10-20
ALAN FENLON WEST LANCS
Apartment was fine apart from the fact that a previous tenant had obviosly dropped a glass tumbler as there was small shards of glass littering the floor only visible in sunlight however i cleaned this up myself and later reported this when i handed the keys back so the apartment could be cleaned properly.No big deal just a little bit more attention by the cleaning staff.
2009-10-20
Benidorm Bill
The property is fine once you get to the flat. To access the flat you need negotiate a steep set of steps from the beach and catch two lifts. Not for the faint hearted or people who find walking difficult. The loaction of the property is fine and only short walk to the sea front itself. All in all a good property and location for those who dont mind a walk.
2009-10-19
Beautiful, friendly, wonderful swimming poot, completely kids friendly and very close to auto route
2009-10-18
It was a small apartment for 6 persons to share. Kitchen very small and bathroom very small.

While the property was in good repair and clean the grounds, particularly the lake, had an end-of-season/tired ambiance. The hosts were very approachable, helpful. and obliging.

Stunning property, everything you imagine for a french B&B. The pool was a welcome treat after a long day traveling. We stayed in the "little House" which was just delightful! The quality of the food and service was outstanding. Have already recommended Garenciere to friends and family.

When you arrive you think you will be accommodated in the Chateau only to be taken over to the stable block (complete with horse next door) Yes, they have made an effort - the room with breakfast bar is spacious (except for the shower/toilet) and well equipped and decorated. But there is a smell! Possibly to do with underuse and location but also there are periodic burps with associated smell from the toilet. The septic tank system needs some attention, obviously. That said it is in a good position relative to the motorway, tranquil and less than an hour from Boulougne.
2009-09-09
We had a room on the ground floor and it smelt quite damp and musty, although everything was clean and tidy.
2009-09-08
Sue and Gill
Las Damas was brilliant in every respect. Key collection was in comfortable walking distance. When collected the key asked if there was a toaster in the room, the next day one was delivered. I booked with hotels abroad and before making my booking I contacted them a couple of times and they were very helpful. Will definitely use them again.
2009-09-08
These apartments were basic but had everything you needed for a self catering holiday,they were clean and the pool was cleaned every evening after the guests left it. towels and sheets were changed weekly,the only down side i found was the deposit of 150 euros or sterling but in saying that ive never stayed at an apartment before so this may be the norm
2009-09-02
Chris and Margot
We spent our first night here and found it very conveniently located: close enough to the Autoroute but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the French country side. The bedroom was rather small and the wooden floor, walls and ceiling were rather flimsy but the place has bags of character and we were not disappointed with our choice.

Clean comfortable room but the proprietor spoke not one word of english (ok we should speak spanish/basque)and had no patience. The restaurant was not operating and there were only snack bars in the village, so we had to drive to a town. Also the public areas stank of cigarette smoke.

This is a fantastic stopover Hotel/Motel, it is 1 min off the main Paris to Madrid Motorway, I have stayed at the hotel 8 times, the staff are great and speak good English as i only speak English and Spanish my French is horendous. They are a very dog friendly Hotel, which was my rason for choosing the hotel 5 years ago. This is a quaint little hotel that has clean sheets, hot water and pleasant staff. If you want Biaritz culture then go somewhere else, if you want a bed to break up a long journey then it is 5 star. good luck John

This is a little gem. A genuine old French country house, in its own grounds, which makes you feel really special. A great first night, setting the mood for our two-week break. Really friendly owners, super atmosphere.

Had booked 2 double rooms. One was refurnished which is good, but was let down by the bathroom which did not have mechanical ventilation. Windows cannot be partly opened. Is this typically French?
2009-08-04
This apartment was absolutly topp. It`s place in the old town of Benidorm make it short way everywhere. The room was delicate and enaught place to have our things and clouds. The only thing we missing ,was a safe.
2009-08-01
About 1 Hour from Cherbourg. English spoken in Restaurant where the cuisine at Dinner was first class.We left very early in the morning and did not sample Continental breakfast. All in all an excellent choice for our stay in Coutances.
2009-07-31
Although beside TGV line, this hotel has installed quadruple glazing in the bedrooms. This makes it an ideal city centre venue, close to many fine restaurants and facilities.
2009-07-30

2009-07-30
For a town centre venue, this hotel was remarkably quiet.

The apartment could do with a little tender loving care. many of the doors were difficult to open and some doors were missing. the apartment was spotlessly clean but a little shabby. the shower did not work but it was quickly repaired. we will be going to this apartment in october with no worries
2009-07-24
Overall me and my friend were very pleased with the accomodation, we found the apartment spacious, clean and comfortable. The maryciel are apartments are perfect for groups of friends wishing to spend time in benidorm, it is very close to the main nightlife and also to the beach. The pool area was also kept very clean and was peaceful throughout the day.

Fairly new hotel outside the town and near to the main Paris route. good parking, clean and comfortable rooms, staff friendly, bar and restaurant good.
2009-07-23
Very nice hotel in a samll but very nice town. Would have liked air-con but nevertheless- very nice.
2009-07-14
linda
The apartment was great but at night the noise from the disco bars was very loud. So you have to shut all windows and put air con on. Found really good bar Robin Hood under Duke of Wellington food great and reasonable, come out of apartments turn right then left at bottom of road bar on right about 2 minute walk. No chairs round pool which was a let down.
2009-07-10
A traditional French family-run hotel in a lovely setting by the river. The restaurant is excellent - and in summer you can dine on the terrace and look out across the immaculately kept gardens to the beautiful green River Charente
2009-07-09

The hotel was quite small, but nevertheless comfortable for a one night stop at St Malo whilst awaiting the cross channel ferry. It was nice and clean and the 2 staff were very kind and helpful. Being in St Malo Old Town parking had to be done on the street outside, which finding a space was a matter of luck. However, we had no concerns about the security of our vehicle.
2009-07-09
Beckwith
An excellent 2 Star hotel, very spacious inside and with a nice garden, covered swimming pool and private parking within the hotel grounds. The external appearance of the hotel building was very attractive and had a welcoming feel. The ambience of the whole complex was very pleasant.

This was our fourth visit to this hotel. We love the surroundings of the hotel, its swimming pool, lounging recliners, garden and proximity to the beach.

Would definitely recommend, great for overnight stops or long weekends. Very peaceful location and good menu. Only downside was that the breakfast room was not open until 8.30 a.m. so it was a rush as we had a ferry to catch.
2009-07-07
Clean but a bit basic, some furniture could do with a bit of an upgrade. I suppose this is to be expected in self catering. Asked for no higher than 4th floor but got 18th. Lift was very small, not for the claustrophobic. But to be fair the apartment was okay and it was exactly where we wanted to be based.
2009-07-06
amanda
I think the property gives you exactly what you pay for, clean comfortable basic property, excellent for our girlie holiday, not really for families, but safe enough. staff friendly. If you want luxury go and pay for it! only thing i will say is dont dive in the pool, its not deep enough.
2009-07-05
The hotel was not easy to find, thanks to the town`s maze of one-way streets and several "deviations" being in place.Parking was an absolute nightmare. The hotel has no car park, and we had to park several streets away from it. Had I not had a Blue Badge, I don`t know where we would have found a spot. As it was, we had a very long walk to the hotel, and my husband had no luck later when looking for a closer spot.Dinner was really good, though wine proved very expensive.We had to "haggle" on our departure as they wanted us to pay again, though we pointed out we had already paid. We wouldn`t use the hotel again because of the problem of parking.
2009-07-05
This was a lovely hotel, which we would happily use again.Our only problem was a hopeless shower fitting, which made showering tricky, but our stay was only for one night, so it hardly mattered in the general scheme of things. The lay-out was really lovely, and so were the flowers, pathways etc. The pool area looked immaculate, though we didn`t use it.
2009-07-05
Well kept clean tidy ,could do with a little make over. excellent value for money in respect of adults seeking tranquility ease of excess to beach, shopping restaurants and transport. right on the button
2009-07-04
1st class property, beautiful gardens and swimming pools.

A very good hotel in an excelent location, lifts are very slow especialy at meal times. lots of steps to the pool area make it difficult for the elderly. entertainment outside was very loud.

Went with family, location brilliant being in the centre of things but the apartments were very noisy and the walls wafer thin. Had to move apartments due to very noisy streets with people and music. Cleanliness was average. If you want quietness ask for an off street room. Much quieter. But if you are a deep sleeper it would be ok for you
2009-06-15
Pat
We had a broken blind which we reported and it was mended the next day. Only comment would be that the shower head needed cleaning or replacing - water sprayed everywhere when the shower was turned on full power - other than that the apt was very good - will certainly use them again.

A typical chain hotel designed to house business and holiday travellers for one night stays. Comfortable, clean and reasonably welcoming with any frills and serves its purpose well. I would be happy to stay there overnight again. The restaurant and menu was adequate and enjoyable without any attempt to be pretentious. Service was good and attentive and appropriately priced.

The hotel is located on a busy street in central Valence. It is fine for one or two nights but is just a comfortable place to sleep. There are few facilities (no restaurant) but the price includes breakfast which is adequate. Carparking, at Euro2.80 overnight in a secure underground car park 100m away, is good reassuring value. Being central the hotel is very close to a wealth of bars and restaurants of a wide range of standards. Monsieur speaks enough English and is welcoming and friendly.

Found to be very clean, reception staff friendly and helpful and appartments situated perfectly for beach and nightlife, highly recommend to friends and family
2009-06-12
The Don Migel 1 looks shabby from outside. Inside the apartment was very spacious. The furnishings were a bit shabby but it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The location is right on the beach so is excellent. I thought it was great value for money and would go again.

We thought the appartment was fantastic - very spacious - fantastic views would definatly recommend it to everyone
2009-05-10
A bit off the beaten track for us, but adequate for a stop over nonetheless. The overall hotel felt a bit dated, but clean. The family room was a little small and the plumbing took a little while to work! Because we stayed on Easter Sunday service was a little limited. The secure parking was a bonus.

Our family were all made very welcome. The bedrooms had recently been decorated and were in very good order. The breakfast was first rate - home made jams and juices, utlising locally grown apples. If you are looking to stay in an authentic French chateau, this place very much lives up to what you would expect.

On arrival we were dropped off outside the Hotel Don Pancho which is located directly behind the Torre Yago (approx 5 min walk). The main entrance to the building is located on the side of the building and is easily accessable, it is the main door next to the mini market - note that you can not enter the building from the beach front. The entrance hall was light and vey clean with a small reception desk however, this is only manned on occasion during the day. The room was very spacious and we were given a 3 bed despite paying for a 2 bed so we was very please. The apartment was very clean with clean towels, bed lined, washing machine, iron, ironing board, bath, shower ans TV. The balcony was spacios and had amazing viws over the promenade, no noise disturbance at night. If there is no one avialable on reception when you arrive, you can collect the key at the El Trebol apartments. Just a short walk away. Overall - FANTASTIC holiday, value for money apartments, no frills excellent location!!! Would book again!!!

No problem with the property...we have been there numerous times.

This was a great place for us, can be windy no sun on balcony until afternoon. Downside you had to put money in the t.v. which did not always register, not that we go away to watch t.v. but its nice to keep up with the news and weather.

Very handy for the supermarket. pool area very clean and tidy. only 5 or 6 minutes walk from bars and resturants.

Jim & Carol Nugent
Quite a nice place, friendly staff, fairly good location, rather spoiled by a fairly nasty smell in the apartment which we did mention to reception, and the fact that pavement renovation work was taking place right outside the front door of the apartments, and as our particular apartment was located to the front of the building, the noise began first thing in the morning and continued for most of the day. We know this is essential maintenance work, and it should not spoil the holiday of future guests and will enhance the appearance of the avenue.

The apartment block was in a good location however the apartment bathroom was in a poor condition. Kitchen was good with a new cooker, fridge freezer and washing machine

Property basic but perfect for what we wanted, the only downside was the bedding. A duvet would have been better than the blankets provided. The property had recently been decorated and is in a super position close to the beach and nightlife. We would definately return here again.

APARTMENT FIRST CLASS VERY CLEAN SPACIOUS IN A GREAT LOCATION ONLY MINS FROM BEACH SHOPS AND BUS STOPS WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE ESPECIALLY FAMILYS AS POOL WAS MASSIVE AND EVEN HAD WASHING MACHINE

Would recommend these apartments clean, centrally locoted,standard furniture with newly fitted bathroom

The apartment is situated in a very central location, not far from the clubs, restaurants and the beach. The indoor pool is a plus for the children and the grounds are secure.
2009-02-27
The property was well positioned for access to the old town of Benidorm as well as to the poniente and levante beaches and the park.

Excellent value for money. There were 4 of us sharing the apartment - all women,plenty of room for our things.Good size balcony for sunbathing. Apartments very quiet, but in excellent location for shops, beach and nightlife. Only gripe would be - only one set of keys between 4 and only one mirror which was in the bathroom, not handy with 4 women trying to get ready to go out.
2009-02-27
bingy
Apartments very big and spacious, in a great location for all the amenities.Housekeeper a little abrupt but not too bad. Would not recommend the cafe attached to the appartments as the staff are very rude and told us not to come back, blaming us for the fact that they kept getting our order wrong, go to the english bar just next door, much better service and food and friendly staff.
2009-02-27
We like the location. Good for Buses & beach. Pubs and shopping close.

Better than expected, clean, spacious and good location.
2009-02-27
Adequate for a short stay, could do with some updating.
2009-02-27
We had a lovely holiday in this apartment. the only thing we thought could have been better was the amount of blankets we had having said that we did,nt ask for any more.everything was spotless clean and we would book this apartment again
2009-02-27
We booked a twin bed apartment in october but when we arrived at stupid oclock in the morning we were told we would be staying in the hotel instead.The hotel was great, and we didnt see the apartments inside.They really looked after us in the hotel too.Its location is brilliant,but parking can be traumatic.Wefound a good pay carpark not too far away and got special rate as we were stayin in hotel. All in all a great time.Weather was 26 degrees every day too and that helped.
2009-02-27
Good position bars and restaurants close.The grounds were being upgraded but when complete it will be a really nice place.I would recommend The Riconada Real.
2009-02-27
WE HAD PROBLEMS ON ARRIVAL AND THROUGHOUT OUR WEEK WITH BUILDING WORK NO LIFTS WORKING OR ONLY ONE LIFT WORKING WE HAD TAKE A LIFT TO THE TOP FLOOR ONE SIDE OF THE BUILDING OVER ROOF DOWN THE STAIRS TO 18 FLOOR WITH OUR SUITCASES.ALSO WE HAD TWO 80 YEAR OLD WIFES PARENTS WITH US .IF I HAD BEEN AWARE OF THIS I WOULD HAVE BOOKED ANOTHER APARTMENT IN ANOTHER BUILDING .SOME DAYS WE HAD TO LEAVE MY WIFES PARENTS IN THE APARTMENT BECAUSE OF PROBLEMS WITH ACCESS .NOT A HAPPY HOLIDAY.

C & G 50,s couple
This is one of the smartest set of apartments on the front line.What a view from our 23 rd floor balcony/lounge! If you do not like lifts or high floor accomodation request a lower floor as this apartment block has 35 levels.Great position and easy safe walking to the old town and shops.The restaurant on the ground level does great food and a full breakfast with toast ,marmalade, coffee and fruit juice for Eu4.20 .I was also able to park my car in the private car park at the rear for free.These apartments are not particularly cheap but they are in an enviable position and worth the extra.

It was great having two bathrooms with showers as we had two teenage girls.the rooms where really clean, we had family staying in a 4* all inclusive hotel but they prefered the apartments and said next time they would rather do what we done and book apartments.
2009-02-27
Excellent apartments to stay in very clean and quiet close to everything

The San Miguel 11 is a very comfortable and private apartment block. My friends and I stayed in a 3 bedroomed apartment this June and we throughly enjoyed our 7 night stay.our only complaint as such was that it was very warm at night and we did not have air conditioning.(not a setback would have prefered to have air conditioning)we also had a sea view .we had no problems finding the apartment as we hired a private car and a gentleman by the name of manfred picked us up at the airport with the keys and delivered us right to the front door of the building.marvellous.The apartment block is located at a 5 minute walk from the beach and you have a lovely little english resterant at the end of the hill if you prefer a full irish or english breakfast if not you have a very well stocked supermarket right across the road from the apartment (couldnt ask for more)No safety deposit boxes in any of the rooms in our aprartment but in saying that the front of the building is secure as in you need a key to enter the ground floor(would have prefered a safety box in at least one room)overall it was an enjoyable stay .i have been to Benidorm 3 times so far this year 2008 and my friends and i always enjoy ourselves.i would recommend the San Miguel 11 and i would book it again.

2009-02-11
We requested an appartment on a high floor but were allocated an appartment on the third floor. The appartment was in need of refurbishment, but clean and reasonable value considering the condition. One of the lifts was being replaced which gave rise to some noise. We only saw one employee, the night porter who spoke no english.
2009-02-11
Is certainly not the easiest to reach, is much better inside than the outside view and caters also to locals who are mainly quite reserved. We have been going many years and are accepted to a degree. Mine host is a very quiet reserved man and the menu will not please too many. Nevertheless it suits us greatly
2008-11-22
The noise from the appartment above was the worst we have ever had on holiday. We had to buy ear plugs and you still could hear them. Constantly moving furniture about. One morning it went on until 7am. The view from the balcony was fantastic though.
2008-11-18

These apartments are very very dated and are in need of a major refurb. the electric wiring here really does need looking into. on a more positve note the location of these apartment is for me excellent. the views of the lavente beach front is trully superb also althought dated the bedding and towels etc are clean and fresh. the problem with the nosise here was really only to do with the lifts in the apartments being updated so not a constant problem

We have stayed here twice b/b and its always clean and the hotel staff are very friendly we will def stay again we requested a high floor and got it .only one bad thing it can get quite noisey if your room is on the main street but we took ear plugs.

As an returning guest for the third time ,I anticipated the general outcome, hence on arrival you will be allocated Sol Ocas Hotel ;overlooking the indoor market/ or small bathing pool.Please do make a complaint of above and surely ,you will be re-allocated pool views in the Pelicanos.
2008-10-29
Very well located and excellent value for money.

SECOND TIME OF BOOKING SO KNEW WHAT TO EXPECT.EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY AND LOCATION SPOT ON. LESS THAN 5MINS WALK TO BEACH, SHOPS AND NIGHTLIFE.YET QUIET ENOUGH FOR A COMPLETE REST WITH NO NOISE OR DISTURBANCE.
2008-10-23
The Mariscal were tidy enough the lifts were very slow quiet location but take care if coming up from the square pickpockets/robbers on the street corners just stay alert

Decor a bit tired but clean and everything worked. Central for entertainment and shopping. An information pack would have been helpful, although to be fair, everything you need can be found easily. It did not have a pool and it would have been nice if we could have had use of one nearby.
2008-10-18
Took us ages to find the place because of all the one way roads, the gate to the apartments was tucked away at the side of a chemist, so was pretty hard to find, the app itself was very spacious, clean and well equiped, with a washing machine as well as a large fridge/freezer, the cooker had gas hobs and electric oven. There was no air con, which was the only down side. The sun shone into the large glass fronted balcony every morning and made the place very hot. It could do with curtains on the balcony windows. Overall the apartment was very good. Could easily sleep 4, because there was also a bed settee
2008-10-18
steve
Lovely apartment in a brilliant location. With little or no staff and no reception, getting in and out was awkward with four adults sharing two sets of keys and three doors to pass. But the views, apartment standard, facilities in the apartment and the central location more than made up for it. Top notch!! and recommended.
2008-10-16
Peter
Our apartment was poorly furnished, the kitchen was old fashioned with few utensils, the beds were very comfortable, it was clean and spacious with a large balcony and views over the park, towels and bed linen were changed during our nine night stay.
2008-10-15
Accommodation was amazing plenty of things round about. and the sea view was amazing.this accommodation is well worth the money. i will be going to these apartments again next year.

Curtains torn.Windows dirty.Bedroom small with only room for two beds and a small chest of drawers. On arrival the agent tried to send us to the europa centre as he stated it was a more expensive apartment but is in reality cheaper. The pool was emptied during our stay but did not affect us.
2008-10-14
We were on the 14th floor with fantastic views day and night.We were the only mad brits to be using the pool in october!The appartments and grounds were spotless.Would stay there again for sure.
2008-10-13
Apartment 4A1 Kitchen door needs to be done away with dangerous when cooking in a small area.Left hand wardrobe door needs looking at.Extractor fan not working.2 sockets not working.Windows need a good cleaning.Jobs hat need doing would not cost very much
2008-10-12

Very good location for the old town area. can be a bit noisy with groups of drunks, but then that can happen anywhere in benidorm. The apartments were clean and tidy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The towels were changed twice a week and the bedding once.

Carlos V is a very good apartment for groups of people wanitng basic clean apartments for long weekends.The apartments could not have been any closer to the nightlife hense the fact it could be very hard to get to sleep if your room was closest to the street

This is a very handy stopover being just a few minutes from the docks at Ouistreham. It may not be the most luxurious B&B, but the prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly and helpful. We have used it for several years and will continue to do so. It is best to telephone if you are on a late evening ferry that is docking later than expected.

Very comfortable and entirely suitable for purpose i.e overnight accommodation.

The food was very good and staff very helpul and friendly. The hotel itself perhaps needs some updating and I would not personnally class as a 4 star more a 3.Overall we had a good holiday and it was very good value for money.
2008-09-22
We stayed in Ambassador 1, fairly good apart from the swimming pool area, sunbeds are well past their sell by date and a distinct lack of umbrellas. We stayed on a Half Board Basis, food was acceptable, fairly good choice. Would suggest that the hotel is in neeed of a makeover.
2008-09-20
Its best feature was the location, which was near to all the nightlife. Apart from that, there isnt anything good to say about them. Electric plugs were hanging off the wall, very basic and old fashioned, mould in the bathroom and a piece of hardboardfor the base of two of the beds
2008-09-19
No evening meal facilities in hotel or nearby at this time of year. Restaurant only open 07.00 - 12.00 midday

I felt it was quite difficult for the hosts to keep up with the English each night, but three of us were happier to speak French! They did well, the meal was average despite them being warned that I did not eat meat. We had to catch our ferry at 10am so had to leave at 8am, despite our requests for a tray of tea, this was impossible.....so indeed was anything to eat.
2008-09-06
No bottle gas upon arrival, wait until next day to have a coffee in the apartment, washer did not work and boiled the clothes ruining them, quite a few lights did not work, fridge kept leaking water and everything was warm.

I have used this hotel 5 times as a transit for driving from Spain to UK. It is pet friendly and it is literally minutes of E5 main motorway. The hotel is very clean but is actually on a bit of an industrail estate, however there is a macdonalds 50m away to feed kids. I would not recomend for a holiday but superb for a one night stopover.
2008-08-28
We hAVE BEEN STAYING HERE FOR ALMOST 20YEARS FOR SHORT STOPS TRAVELLING TO OR FROM THE SOUTH OF FRANCE. It cannot be beaten for price and the fact that we return so often and recommend it to friends - says it all! If you chose to stay you will not be disappointed.

3rd bed in room was a very tired fold out bed. return trip, different room, but same poor 3rd bed. No shower, just a hand held over the bath. Restaurant was closed on Monday, only a set meal available. Had to go into village to another hotel to find dinner. On return trip, restaurant was open and enjoyed dinner. Hotel very Alsace.

Budget accommodation but adequate for two persons, would be better with fridge freezer, no washing machine. Pool area good and plenty of space Cleaners at door 09.15 on day of departure,told to return at 10am but again waiting outside of door. Quite a distance to agent for keys but very helpful Would stay there again

The breakfast was very expensive 15 euros each.

There was not enough room for everyone to have breakfast and they kept running out of plates , cups, juice and food. It was a good breakfast once we got a table.
2008-08-05
Only stayed overnight. Some of the staff spoke English which was good. Restaurant was a bit dissapointing and the staff were a bit abrupt. Not to happy with the self service food so ignored breakfast and eat in a McDonalds. Room itself was clean and comfortable.
2008-08-05
It is good that hotels abroad say that you should resist any attempt by the hotel to charge you again - as this hotel tried very hard to make us pay again. When we arrived we reported that one of our rooms was not ready and the beds not chnaged. We were told that it would be done within the hour. When we returned from a night out in Annecy, the room had still not been prepared. There was no-one to help at 11.30pm anbd even some hepful French people who tried to help us could not understand the recorded message on the helpline. We had to book another room - fortunately this could be done using a machine there - and then go through a lengthy process of sorting out a cash refund in the morning. Luckily the person on the desk in the morning spoke English. I would not recommend this hotel. It was close to a very busy dual carriageway and thus very noisy.

An excellent, friendly family-run hotel. We would go back.

Since the no smoking ban came into effect, the place smells a lot better! The breakfast area could stand better lighting. The low lighting makes the area unpleasant and a bit dingy. Food is OK, though.

This is a fantastic property with easy excess to anything in benidorm
2008-07-19
Would not stay in this property again,in fact did not stay second night booked

Would have been better with air conditioning. bed linen/towels were changed after three days but not for the rest of the holiday so had to use the same sheets/towels for 10 days

Excellent hotel, lots of off-street parking, close to town and easy to find.

Apartments were basic but clean and roomy. The position was excellent with wonderful views of the beach and surrounding area.

Beautiful old building with great character and rustic charm. Better on inside than outside due to plain outside appearance giving way to a much grander internal decoration. With comfortable bedrooms and very clean modern onsuite bathrooms. Have used before and will be using again due to this and it being great value for money, plus staff are always very friendly and helpful.

Amazing just a short bus to central Florence.A map would have been useful with the directions
2008-07-11
Property was clean and central to all amenities. The beds were not very comfortable but the rest of the apartment was very good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at acintur apartments and would fantastic location especially for my disabled husband,however i have made enquiries to re-book for next year and find the £120 increase a little too high!!

We had stayed here some years previously. Our first stop this time in France, if not a fluent speaker of French have the French dictionery ready as no help written or verbally provided. Not a problem if one is prepared! A generally very comfortable hotel and would stay here again but very disappointed by the reception desk check in and with one or two exceptions the helpfulness of the staff. On arrival we were treated as an inconvenient interruption to a telephone call and also what appeared to be a sharing of computer information. Our rooms were at the very top of the hotel and we quite literally were taken up at almost running pace and only I managed to keep up and follow the various corridors and staircases to our rooms. The receptioist was even in too much hurry to either turn on or show me where the light switches were for some quite dark and in particular one dangerous staircase, without good lighting. The same feeling of being an interuption to what the receptionist wanteted to be doing was felt whilst checking out the following morning. The room was charged for with our restaurant bill and it took some explaining before this was subsequently credited from our bill. (We specally showed your booking confirmation on our arrival!

First impressions were not immediately over inviting. However staff very helpful & professional. The evening meal selection was very good and the breakfast selection was excellent. Bedrooms were a little on the small side, more Camponile size, but for an overnight stop excellent value and would staythere again if in that area.

Amazing situation so close to the main sqare, good hotel for this purpose. The signs for the hotel all read "Villa Kinzica which can be a little confusing in case there were two establishments with a similar name.However we were not too put out.

Proprietor is a quiet individual but after many years is good company. In the bar clientele are usually local and reserved but again some are well known to us: dishes are usually of a local flavour. Wines are excellent. Very typically Spanish in all aspects

We have used this hotel for a number of years as it is so close to the ferry (5 mins). It is based in a busy area which is great for restaurants. It is in the process of being refurbished. The rooms are smallish but it is has family rooms and is ideal for an overnight stay. Excellent value for money
2008-06-13
In a really good location ideal for both beach and the nightlife was within a short walking distance. The only downside was that we requested a low floor and found when we arrived that we were on the top floor.
2008-06-12
Good location,at a good price
2008-06-11
About 30 minutes from the port and so is idael for an overnight stop when travelling deep into Europe. It enabled me to obtain a very cheap Norfolk Line ferry boking arriving in plenty of time to freshen up before going in to dinner (we had been driving 300 miles in England to reach Dover). It also enabled us to have Breakfast in comfort before catching the return Ferry. Receptionist could speak English and we were expected. Food was reasonably priced (the choice was not too limited) and served by pleasant staff. Will book hotel again next time we drive abroad using Norfolk Line.
2008-06-11
As soon as we saw it ,we loved the place. Very quiet & peaceful.Ondine, the proprietess was very welcoming. Did not speak any English, nor did the other guests,a French couple.I speak a little French, & we all had a lovely evening. Evening meal delicious ,& worth every Euro.The main house is like a museum.Louis X111,armoires & a wealth of antiques.
2008-06-11
We were not impressed with the condition of the apartment in respect of the furnishings, somewhat shoddy. The kitchen layout was not user friendly.The noise level from people living above (spanish)was at times very annoying. This apartment,tower 2, did not compare with the apartment we stayed in when we were here last october (2007) in tower 1 GEM.2 Overall we were disappointed.
2008-06-10
Ideal for the ferry.Choice of decent restaurants close by.Owner was very obliging.Not the easiest place to find and parking was very tight( although on-street parking is allowed)Would definitely use again.
2008-06-10
Poor decor,windows to outside did not close properly and wind was whistling into property causing great draught and noise.had to buy tape and use paper and tape to try and seal windows.evidence of previous attempts to do same by other occupants.the two single lounge chairs looked ok until you sat on them whereon the back rest cushion just gave way due to the rear of chairs only having approx 12inches of back in them where the back cushions were of normal height of approx 3foot.
2008-06-09
No complaints about apartments they were good value for the money. The only complaint we have is the Pub resturant below was full of lager louts in most afternoons so was very noisey. Vert quiet in the evenings we had a great holiday.
2008-06-09
Would definately go back and recommend to anyone
2008-06-09
Room and bedding were damp plus the room smelt of dampness. Poor service and quality of food in the restaurant.
2008-06-09
Did not get accommodation we had chosen but sent to different apartments,not very sure why as a clear explanation was not forthcoming
2008-06-09
Family run small working farm business suffering a little through volume of work necessary to maintain in showcase condition. Owners are super friendly and try hard to please without this being overpowering.
2008-06-09
Great for location, centre for everything we needed, poolwas on the small side but was clean and tidy,as these apartments are in the centre of the night life they were noisy at nights, so if you need a good nights sleep ask for a rear apartment great for stag and hen nights, beach was only afew mins walk away. will deffo use these apartments again
2008-06-09
Its located in a great area with all the clubs and restaurants and near the beach. right on top of a super market which is great. had a great time, have been before and already booked again for later on in the year. its really convenient for everything and the apartments have everything you need for self catering.
2008-06-09
Highly recommended to everyone
2008-06-09
Very good accommodation in central Benidorm. Nice pool and very helpful reception.

General comments about the property
2008-05-16
We had a room on 14th floor with a sea view,skyscrapers,mountains,and a massive pool-made our holiday.Restaurants .mad house,vegetables soggily cooked.Menu sweets the same every pm.difficult to find table.Dance floor toosmall.Most shows too short@too late 10.15pm
2008-05-09
The apartment was well located and very clean the view from the balcony was excellent. The only problem we had was there were no instructions on how to use the cooker or were to take the rubbish. The conceirges were rather misrable when saying helo in most cases he did not answer and if asked a question did not give a direct reply. Other than that the holiday was perfect.
2008-05-05
Excellent perfect location good facilities inside the apartment
2008-05-02
Property was adequate for our needs. With hindsight, the contact at reception could have told us more about where to go in Bruges, ie where the tourist information was, what to do etc but I accept this was not their job.
2008-05-01
Although we were allocated the smallest room in the hotel [which was not full], we found it comfortable and an interesting change from the usual chain establishment.
2008-04-22
good ,traditional with local people eating in the restaurant
2008-04-22
We would use again !
2008-04-16
This is the 3rd time we have stopped here we found it basic but very clean and quiet
2008-04-15
I highly recommend this Hotel to everyone. We have been to Benidorm many times, it was the best holiday ever. Right in the centre of everything.
2008-04-14
An excellent location - it was very central. The hotel had all the basic needs, but the rooms were small and needed updating.
2008-04-12
Quality accommodation,excellet location, cannot fault what so ever. Will use again.
2008-04-12
Difficult to fault.
2008-04-09
Apartment has seen better days, kitchen needs replaced, new fridge but could not open cupboard door because of it. Also transport that we arranged with your company are not allowed on the front so elderly parents had to carry own bags up to another street.
