Need to start with a warning i was travelling with and older friend and on the first day within half an hour of getting of the coach my friend was almost mugged.W e had arrived about 3.30 in the afternoon the rental company did not open until 4.00 so we decided to go to a cafe on the way i was walking just slightly ahead of my friend when 4 young spanish /eastern europepean girls walked passed me they then immeditly gathered around my friend all saying ola and trying to pretend to be hugging him his hands were full and he could feel them trying to get his bum bag after i started shouting some obcenities at them and running towards them they walked away laughing thankfully without my friends belongings although he was very shocked and upset we later found out that this has been happening in benidorm over the last couple of months where the elderly and drunk are being targetted by the same gangs yellow brick road area is notorious on my last day saw same gang of girls patrolling the same area looking for victims the police are aware of this but appear to turn a blind eye or just dont know what to do .
booked the gemelos 2 apartments through gestular rentals over the internet ,so was a little bit nervous about what i had booked. riewiews were patchy and confusing mainly because there are about 28 gemelos hotels in benidorm the word gemelos means twin apparently.Well thankfully all was well the apartment was on the 21st floor of tower 2 it had great views over benidorm the balcony had been glazed in which was great as it was a bit cold at night and also helped keep the street noise down which was not bad anyway.location is spot on between the old town and the new so depending on your mood you could spend time in the traditional and quiet (old town ) or the modern and loud (new town )
the apartment itself was basic kitchen small ,cooking facilities were 2 electric rings and an oven which was fine for 2 of us not sure about a family .There were 2 beds in one room and 2 sofa type beds in the living area all very dated but ok. for the price paid it was all good value for money.Benidorm itself was very quiet as it was out of season
