“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with 6 friends, we had 3 rooms which were very similar although our room only had 1 working gas on the hob and 1 channel on the tv which was fuzzy, we couldn't be bothered to complain as we weren't in the room much anyway. We were all on different floors the hotel didn't have rooms next to each other for us.
I wasn't expecting the ritz and it certainly wasn't but it was clean, clean sheets and fresh towels, i dont know why other people
complain if you want fancy rooms and maid service don't come here.
We had to pay 150 euros
deposit which we got back when we checked out but only after we emptied our bins and put them outside in the car park
( strange ).
The location is perfect for all the bars and just a couple of minutes from the beach, i would imagine it would be very noisy in high season.
If your expectations are that of 2 star apartments you wont be
disappointed.
You will enjoy if you like to have good bars on your doorstep and the beach nearby.

Yes the El Trebol is in desperate need of a face lift but if you are a group of lads or girls wanting a base that is cheap, ideally located and friendly staff but dont mind eating out and just using the room to sleep in and wash in look no further.
I have just returned from three night stay with eight lads, in two rooms. Plenty of room to sleep four per room and as it is my third visit you must me able to tell I am happy with it. If you want luxury pay for it. If you are a few lads/girls wanting an excellent base to sample the delights of Benidorm than you wont go far wrong here.
Yes you do have to pay a deposit but you get it back at the end of the stay. If you dont trash the room you have nothing to worry about.
Yes I do intend to return to Benidorm next year and yes I will stay at the El Trebol.

On arrival here at the trebol I have to admit i was not very impressed, the room was quite shabby and there were no services, the towels were changed only once during our one week stay and the bedding/sheets were never changed the room was never cleaned and I understand this is a self catering apartment but for the price we paid I would have expected at least to have some services offered from the hotel basically you are paying to sleep there and if that is all you want then fine.the pool area was fine but we got in to trouble for going to topless so ladies be aware that if you stay here the owner does not allow this, (quite unusual for Spain i must admit ) the pool was very cold and the majority of-the sun beds were broken one good thing about this hotel that i must mention is that you can leave your key in the little port hole at reception if you are going out to the beach etc, the location of this hotel is ideal for clubbers its is right in the heart of the square near to cafe benidorm but all in all i would not go back sorry this did not impress me at all

After reading the reviews prior to arriving we were a bit worried as to the state of el trebol , needn't have worried , hotel is cheap cheerful which is clean , clean towels if you asked for them , great location central to everything we required " 5 lads short break " . I can't see what people can moan at for the price , really good value for money and shall be returning if they have us !!

just got back from benidorm after staying in trebol apartments. three of us stayed there last year. we have stayed in many of the hotels in benidorm and payed alot more for the pleasure of being waited on. in my opinion, you get what you pay for. we found the trebol is clean, big rooms and balcony, the staff cannot do enough for you. ok, you dont see a maid every day but i dont mind making my bed. if you ask the reception for more towels or pillows, they oblige. we will definately stay there again because i think its fantastic value for money. (not easily pleased)

Room Tip: one facing pool if you want sun on your balcony
