Aquarium III
Ranked #90 of 108 Specialty Lodging in Benidorm
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Just returned from our weeks stay here, me, hubby, son. After reading some reviews I was getting rather worried, however it was absolutely fine...after walking to a different place for the key (not great) we got unpacked in the very basic but clean apartment, lovely large balcony which all overlook the pool area, clean towels and bedding provided. Small kitchen area with cooker, fridge freezer, washer, kettle, plates, cups, glasses, basics really. Bathroom was fine although the shower was a bit naff.
Location is great, doctors, dentist, chemist, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, pubs, all within 2 minute walking distance, beach 10 mins walk. Aqualandia water park is a very short 5 minute bus ride away and is a fantastic day out (wish I'd made a good pack up like everyone else seemed to do) with food courts and fabulous picnic areas. A big bonus for us was watching the entertainment on an evening from our balcony at the big neighbouring hotel....result !!!!!
We also highly recommend the bar/cafe opposite called The New Penny...beautiful breakfasts...and evening meals/snacks, wonderful couple who warmly welcome you...free Wi-Fi too. The Mad Monk next door also good.
We'd stay here again, cheap, clean, great location.. :-)

me and my friend stayed here in july last year absolutely horrible staff rude, room not that clean. on arrival we were told to leave a deposit about 75euro each, anyway we left it and got to the room and there wasnt anything worth the deposit. staff are so rude speaking in Spanish to other staff about other holiday makers, got to the day before the flight home and we asked for the deposit back as we were leaving early in the morning before the office open and they said no, we had no choice but to leave the apartment a day before we were due to leave, to get the deposit back and we have to leave the room at 10am and we where getting picked up at 8am the next day. we had to stay in a bar for about 20hours with no where to put the suit cases WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN !!!!

Stayed here as a party of 16 we had 4 apartments and 1 studio, didn't get to see studio but was told by my family member it was clean an small like a cupboard, the apartment I stayed in had 2 single beds in a bedroom and a couch with a pull out bed it was very clean balcony overlooked the sol pelicanos pool, the balcony was very big with 4 chairs an a table, no pillows for couch an pullout bed, the shower was really powerful but the hot water runs out very quickly a few family members commented on there own showers saying when it is used the shower head wouldn't stay on, the pool is nice an cold and area of pool kept clean, few idiots decided to throw glass off there balconys into pool and area so it had to be swept up by lifeguard and kids were left waiting to use pool but was cleaned as fast as he could was really surprised at apartments as read bad reviews on here but as a base to just sleep shower and swim I would recommend had another great break in benidorm

You know what, we really thought this accomodation was going to be a disaster, we had read so many bad reviews. Myself and partner booked as a cheap and cheerful break for our birthdays in May, and although it is VERY basic, if your looking for somewhere to just leave your luggage and have a bed at night its perfect. Its kind of in the middle of everywhere so it was easy to walk to the beach, bars, restaurants and shops. The only downfall is paying the 150 euro deposit, which as long as you dont trash the place you get back. I think this ruling has been put in place for the groups of people who stay here as damages do happen. There arnt really many staff about to speak to, just the people in the shop outside where you collect your keys.
Bonus bit to staying here was they were filming beidorm next door so, and the accomodation being where it is, no one really walks past to see whats going on. We met some of the cast and had photo's which was a nice ending to our trip.
If you eat out try a place called clippers, really cheap and fantastic food, also the lazy cow beach bar is really reasonable for drinks!

a group of 20 of us stayed here for a stag do. I booked this hotel mainly due to the cheap price of £28 per night, with 3 sharing per room. I read the reviews and got a bit worried about the hotel due to the bad reviews people were leaving. It was a bit of a pain having to pay a deposit of 150 euros per room, but this went back into my account 2 days after i got home. We also had to pick up the keys from another hotel which was only a 5 min walk away, so wasnt that much of an inconvenience. The rooms were very clean, 2 single beds and a sofa bed which noone complained about. No tv in room, but to be honest i dont go away on holiday to watch tv. We were on the 21st floor, great views from our room, the lifts were a bit slow, but if people want to complain about things like that, go for it! Yes it may be a bit basic but the rooms were clean and comfortable, perfect for a stag do, everyone on our party enjoyed staying there, location not too bad, about a 15-20 min walk from the main strip. For a budget hotel i cannot fault it and would reccomend it. The bar across the road it good to start out for a few beers.

well we wanted a cheap place to stay for a break and we go it!!

appartments are very basic and in residentual block - pool area the worse i have ever seen!! u also have to stump up a 150euro deposit when you pick the keys up which we wernt told about!!- we were sent to 2 locations to collect keys within walking distance but none available - we then had to get a taxi to collect!! joke really!!

location is good 5-10 min walk to beach and main strip of bars etc!! not rowdy at nite ever wothin hotel which was good!!

first night we were recommended to go to the lively strip - we got offered all kinds of drugs and even prostitutes all within a 200metres.

we then got drunk as you do... and both got mugged!! they had my phone, cash and flipflops!! my mate was walking to the toilet and someone came up behind him lifted him up under the arms and put him through a fire exit and sat on him whilst his mate took out his wallet and took all the cash!! this put us off really and on edge the rest of the time!!

we spoke with other couples and old man of 65 got his wallet taken when asked for a light!! he was drunk!! the theme here is they are looking for drunks to mug - and they do! and this was outside neptunes the place they film benidorm kareoke!!

would never return to benidorm and will never recommend it either -

pay a bit more and go to a greek island instead!!

this place is crawling with tramps - gipsies and muggers!!

be warned and if u book be on ya guard!! this is all 100% true!!

We stayed here over Easter.
Ok they was basic but I found them clean.
We had a great view over benidorm and sol pelicanos pool area.
The pool in the apartment was closed but it was a tad to cold to swim.
Yes it is a bit of a hassle regarding the key collection ect and where to deposit the keys on leave but over all pretty straight forward if you follow the instructions on booking.
Next time I will definitely pay slightly more as I do like a hotel but if your looking for a cheap holiday let then I guess these are ok.

Room Tip: If your not scared of heights room 16G has a massive balcony with great views.
