“Very good cheap hotel in a quieter part of town”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

We stayed here recently and loved the hotel. It had friendly staff, beautiful views and well maintained pool area.

The apartment itself had everything necessary for a pleasant stay with comfortable beds, good size bathroom, a nice balcony with furniture and everything we needed in the kitchen with a working oven, cook top, fridge and most utensils (perhaps with the exception of a good knife).

Very pleasant stay indeed.

Just got back from a week in the El Faro apartments,can i just say you get what you pay for we booked this as a last min holiday on arrival the rooms were basic but very clean ,the staff polite i could not fault the el faro,the apartments are in the old town a 25-30min walk would take you into the busy part of benidorm.
lots of nice places to eat dannys is good for sunday lunch (roast beef)and 2 courses cost less than £10 excellent value for money.
i would definitely be going back to the el faro apartments well done .

Stayed at the El Faro near Poniente beach in Benidorm in the lasy week of September 2011. At first site, it doesnt look fantastic, but the rooms were clean and well fitted, even if the bathroom was a little tired.
We had a room on the 10th floor and the view was really good. You are 1 road back from the beach (no more than 100yds). Pool was smallish but quite quiet and there is a small bar in reception, but to be honest there are so many other places to eat and drink we didnt use it much.
Staff were very helpful and were happy to let us keep our room on the day of depature until our flight time.
Being at the Poniente end of town suited us as it was quiter at night and really a pleasant walk along the front to get in to old town. The bus service in to the town is also very easy to use and very cheap.
A walk up the very large hill at the end of the beach to the little chapel is well worth the effort for the great view.
All in all a good few days away and would consider this hotel for a cheap break again.

Room Tip: get a room on as high a floor as possible

Just back from my 2nd stay at El Faro and we asked for and got the same room as we had in april only downside was this time we did,nt have a kettle i did request one but it did,nt arrive but as we only had a cuppa in the morning we just boiled a pan of water.
I really like this place.its clean&the staff are all very pleasant..Yes it is a little out from the levante end with all the bars.But if you just walk up the hill toward the GRAN BALI you can catch the no 12 bus(by the internet shop) For 1.30 euro and it takes you right into the heart of things and the seafront.
Or if the hill is too much for you.walk down to the seafront in front of El Faro and there you can catch the no 41 to the old town where if you get of there you can stroll thro all the spanish bars or get on the number 12 there and carry on to the main area.

We have only caught a taxi twice and have never pad more than 10.euro.
Use the buses they are cheap.comfortable and very reliable.
For grocerys walk up past the Gran Bali and you have a huge MERCADONA that sells everything no need to go anywhere else and if you get the 41 bus outside it will drop you on the seafront close to the hotel if you dont want to lug your shopping down the hill.

it has to be said that this hotel is not in a busy area but does have some nice bars and restaurants close by.and we found more of them open in October than when we came here in April.
As for the Comments about the staff .I can only speak as i find and i,ve always found them very polite and helpful.they even told me to ring my transfers up from reception phone rather than use my mobile..We used SKYBLUE TRANSFERS and they dropped us and picked us up right outside the hotel. and on time.

We,ll be going back again soon.

Room Tip: 12 floor or above for the fab veiw.

Just got back from the el faro and thought i should write this.What a lovely place to stay dont get me wrong its not five star its very basic but you get what you paye for. Its nice and clean and the people on reception are really nice and maggie who runs it. The pool is lovely and clean and nice to sit around. Its just up from the lovely beach so you get the best of both worlds straight off the beach into the pool. The only down side we found due to having a four year old is you have to walk for miles before you stumble on the cafes and bars. We walked straight down the beach and went to dannys bar were the food and people are lovely. Over all we had a really nice time thanks maggie x x
