3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Just arrived home yesterday from a 4 night break with 2 of my other friends. On arrival apartments looked okay not the best of but u get what u pay for. We paid 150 euro deposit for room a little bit of advise keep your receipt she gives you when you pay this as if you haven't got it u won't get deposit back! Anyway rooms were basic clean had microwave cooler fridge, only one mirror in bathroom which was a bit of a nightmare with 3 girls. All looked well until we seen a mouse and we were on the 16th floor.
The pool was basic n life guard was not an happy chappy. No li lows in pool, no jumpin in and no walkin around with no shoes on, it was like been a school kid gettin told off.
Location brill and mad munk bar beneath hotel was great really friendly helpful staff, I just hope the chef returns soon as he had gone AWOL but still a brill atmosphere and reasonably priced.
Basically you get what u pay for of u want a good hotel the dynastic is directly behind and is lush.

I'm not a snob, I'm not a tramp, I'm your average raver. This place is awesome! Basic? Yes, it may be. But that is what I paid for. I didn't want any randomerz walking in me room, or a phone to call me dog, I just wanted a bed, a kitchen and something to squeeze in. Well well good value for the dollar and I'd deffo bring me chickens here. Town is fab too, plenty of sticky Vicky's for us all, and to be fairy, there was a 'young' nightlife for us tai! It was a hen do and it was gr8! Peace in.

Just got back from this hotel for my Hen do. When we arrived we were a little nervous about having to pick the keys up from somewhere else but there were no problems at all. You pick the Keys up from the Eva (i think thats what it is called) . They staff were very helpful and explained we would have to leave keys on the bed when leaving as we were leaving early. We paid 150euro deposit which i paid on my credit card to be safe (not checked to see if i have got it back yet tho!)

We were on the 18th floor but it was fine. Scary when you first arrive as there is a door on the lift and we thought we were locked in the lift.! duh!

Once in the room was small but we didn't spend too much time in it. It was very quiet at night and we slept well 4 in a room. 2 twin beds, and a pull out sofa bed.

Pool was brill although you do have to paid 1euro to hire the sunbeds.

Mucks bar below is brilliant for breakfast and lunch. Lovely people run it and are helpful. Went every morning and evening for a drink :-)

Only problem no air con so it does get hot?!

Overall good value for money but definitely for lads and girls holidays than family holidays .

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quiet as you can't hear the street noise.I think all rooms face the pool.

good points about these apartments would be the location, 5 minute walk to nightlife, 10 minute walk to the beach, the view from our room was amazing (we were in 17h), the pool was a really good size, even if you had to pay for the sunloungers, and the mad monk bar/cafe next door, food here was gorgeous.

bad points! from the outside the apartments look like the oldest in benidorm, very shabby. when we arrived at 2pm we were told we had to wait untill 4:30pm to collect our keys from an office on the beach front! paid 50euro deposit and got 1 set of keys between 3 people for 2 weeks!! the apartment itself was basic which was fine but the walls in the bedroom wer filthy. these apartments dont have air con, that along with thin mattresses and 1 flat pillow per person make for a very bad night sleep, one of our party actually moved thier bed out to the balcony to try and get a better sleep. housekeeping only comes once a week, although the dont touch the balcony area? when we were leaving these apartments our pick up for our flight was collecting us at 8:30am, we needed to collect our deposit but the offices we paid our deposit into didnt open untill 9:30am so we were advised to collect our deposit from a hotel called buenavista which was a ten minute walk from ours. one of our party had gone there the night before only to be told to come back in the morning as there was no money there, so the following morning two of us arrived back at buena vista to be told that we wouldnt be getting our deposit back as we had paid it into the office at the beach, eventhough we told them that we had been told to come here, these people must be used to having push overs as guests as once they realised we wern't leaving without a fight, 50 euro suddenly appeared on the counter! avoid this place

We arrived at the apartments in the middle of the night to be told we had to walk half a mile to pick up our keys which we couldn't believe, then had to leave 150 euro deposit for our room, we had booked two rooms. When we finally let ourselves into our room and although clean it was tiny and we lacked a bed and had to sleep on the minute sofa and pull out piece of sponge! We had booked two twin rooms however both rooms were like this we went to discuss with the staff who were most unhelpful and so rude! It was the worst start to our holidays and after two nights of our week holiday as we were refused an upgrade our group decided we could take it no more and checked out and booked into somewhere else! My advice to anyone thinking of booking these apartments is DON'T!!

Room Tip: Steer clear of all rooms!

My self and 3 pals have just returned from benidorm. You just can't imagine what this place is like. Call me naive but I didn't know places like this existed, I have been on many 18-30 holidays in the past and I thought they were basic but this is just a joke, we all actually thought it was a joke. You couldn't pay me or my friends to stay in this place. We booked somewhere else which cost us 200 euros each but this place took a 300 euro deposit, 300 euro I still can't believe it. This was after we had to walk half a mile for our keys, in the middle of the night, carrying our cases. I really feel for anyone who has stayed there for a long period. I'm laying here at home now writing this and I really do feel for the people who are in this so called hotel tonight. We booked Beni- beach and it wasn't great but it was like the Rits compared to aquarium 11. I can't wait to get started on a complaint to Thomas cook tomorrow. The one thing we asked our agent for was a comfortable bed each and what did we get? A bench with a so called foam mattress and a pull out bed on the floor. We were robbed by Thomas cook... I wouldn't of expected somewhere like this if I had booked a Holliday in Iraq. Anyone staying here good look. I can't understand anyone who has said its a nice place. All I can say is I wouldn't like to visit their houses.....
