“Still a Cheap and Cheerful Place to Stay But........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stayed here many times over the last 4 years and spent 26 nights here in February.I do love the place but it really is starting to show its age, the apartment furniture is old and falling apart a bit, the TV is on a pay meter and there's no Internet ( that internet may not be crucial for some but it was for me work wise ). Sadly the guy who used to run the kitchen downstairs Rick has left and that;s a real blow he used to be the life and soul of the bar area, Don't get me wrong its still the cheapest place to stay I reckon in Beni and the people that run it are cool, it serves for a heavy cheapo weekend away but its time to step up from bargain basement to something better for me

Lastly...Watch your self coming home at night, yet again my mate got mugged right outside the gates at 9.00pm at night, several times coming home we found guys hanging around the bins area or down the garage ramp next to the main gates ( you cannot see them if you are coming up the road. Be extra alert if you are on your own or a pair. Crime in Benidorm is worse than ever.

The term " you get what you pay for " covers this hotel perfectly.This was a very cheap week get away and it fitted the bill. The picasso apartments are located in walking distance to everything you will need.The apartments them selves are basic and could do with a little updating and freshning up.Having said that, they are all kept extremley clean.There is a £80 deposit to pay and be warned ,that if your flight is an early morning departure,get it returned the night before.For the ladies...... there is an iron/ironing board provided. There is an extra charge for use of the the TV but with all the available entertainment,we really didn't need it.I would recommend this hotel for families but take note that there are alot of hen/stag parties.

We have recently returned from an 8 day stay in Benidorm and stumbled across this hidden gem.Although we didnt stay in the apartments we spent many a day sat by the pool soaking in the sun and sampling the bar cuisine .
The bar prices are very reasonable and the bar is very well stocked with various local drinks as well as imported spirits, ciders, larger and shots
The staff are excellent and very welcoming especially Dave the barman whos has a wealth of information of Benidorm and the local area and couldnt do enough to help and is an asset to the apartments and is a real character
Would highly recommend a visit to the bar and pool area

Went as a couple in march 2013 for 7 nights and these apartments were just what we expected after reading all the previous reviews. They have everything you will need for a self catering holiday. The food at the bar/cafe was lovely. We tried their home made spanish meatballs and their own made spag bol and it was beautiful. Would highly recommend you give their food a try.
Drinks are reasonably priced. we met alot of people who stay at the picasso year after year. All the staff are lovely and polite. Would not hesitate to re book.

The Picasso apartments are in a good location for the British style bars and restaurants and the lovely beach of Levante but be prepared for a short steep walk back uphill. The block is 12 storeys high with the upper corner units receiving most sunshine. There is a small bar and cafe area on the ground floor serving reasonably priced drinks and meals and a pleasant compact pool and surrounds.
For a couple we found the rooms of reasonable size, with a good kitchen and bathroom and a large corner balcony. The apartment was very clean on entry but the linen provided was quite old and the beds were basic with sheets and blankets.There is no a/c and in the cold spells in February the oil filled radiator was barely adequate to keep the rooms warm.
Picasso is well managed with a very pleasant and helpful staff and offers good value for money.

Room Tip: The upper corner rooms have bigger balconys and receive more sunshine.
