Booked a last minute deal to go to the Terralta, Monday to Friday. Overall the hotel was excellent in all respects for the amount of money we paid.
Location: Set just outside the old town. About a 10minute walk down the hill. You can walk to the new town in about 25 minutes. The hill isn`t particulary steep just gradual at 400 yards. We both managed it every day at least once no problems at all. There are also local bus services which take you into the new town or to Carrefour (big ASDA basically). 1.45Euro flat fare each way.
Cleanliness: Spotless. Everywhere.
Food: We only had a snack at the bar one lunchtime. Adequate. Not too expensive, but not too cheap. 20Euro for 2xpizzas, 1 pint of Strongbow, 1 diet coke and a plate of chips. We ate out all other times. The bar has a decent range of drinks too which is good.
Facilities: Hotel supermarket is great value. Stocks the basics and a bit more. Internet cafe at reception as well as a book swap. The pool area is excellent. Very clean, not too deep (1.7m) and you could sit and view the whole pool if you have kids. Didn`t get around to using the indoor pool or gym.
Rooms: Again, spacious, well equipped and very clean. Nice balcony.The room was cleaned once in the 4 days we were there which was fine. As others have recommended, get a pool view. We didn`t but I would next time. Only 2 storey buildings so lift or stairs option.
Staff: Very helpful and friendly. Always a smile.
Entertainment: We were out every night but the glimpses we saw appeared to be going down well. Good variety too. Would be good for kids I would imagine.
Overall very impressed with only a couple of observations. The air-con did not work. We were advised that they had only just turned the heating off and they did not know when the air-con would be working. (hotel wide) I assume it would need serviced or something but no explanation was offered other than to open the windows(?).
Luckily it did cool down at nights but I would hope and expect that during the hotter weather that the air-con would be a basic requirement. Shame it wasn`t available as I like a nice cool room. It did mean that we had to sleep with the doors open to get some breeze and there was nothing to keep the outdoor noise out of local dogs and drunk, teenagers who unfortunately chose to stay at the same time as us. (It is Benidorm). That isn`t the hotel's fault though.
You can only eat outside at certain tables which aren`t marked separate. We only found this out after being told by the barman who insisted that we moved 2 tables over and he would only take our order once we were seated. I couldn`t see any reason for this at all.
Those issues aside we are planning a return trip later this year with my 9year old. Cant`t wait.
Thanks to all the staff at the Terralta.
