San Francisco Apartments
Ranked #160 of 192 Hotels in Benidorm
Reviewed April 21, 2009

overall the apartment was clean and well equiped. However they are part of a residential block and security is very poor. On our arrival we were told by another couple on holiday that theY had there apartment robbed. In his words "an inside job". a few days later we decided to have an early night. Around midnight our doorbell rang. None of our friends knew where we were staying so we decided to ignore it, approx 2 mins later the door was opened by some one with a key. On seeing that we were in he turned and legged it. We reported the incident to the office the morning after. Although sympathetic they did not seem surprised. Trying to say it was an isolated incident even though it had happened twice in one week. What would have happened if we had been out or indeed an elderley couple. We have been to Benidorm over 30 times and we are quite street wise, however not a lot can be done when you are out and someone has a key.
BE CAREFUL

These apartments would be more appropriately titled as Scumbag Towers in Peasant Crescent! A distinct lack of domestic staff, lack of staff in general and as for hot water? Forget it! There are only so many strip down washes one can endure with the aid of a boiling kettle, so much so that a hot shower on return to the UK will never be taken for granted again! The safety/locks left a lot to be desired and the security entry gate was often left swinging open allowing access to all sorts of trailer trash, my mate was relieved of his wallet in this spot and took a good beating too. Drunken Spainiards seemed to revel in smashing bottles in the road at night and screeching at the tops of their voices. Would I go back? No way Jose!

Awful, awful, awful. Words cannot adequately describe the San Francisco Apartments in Benidorm. If you are coming with a stag party, this place will however be perfect for you. As there will be some blokes around then you won't mind the fact that the locks on both the balcony doors were broken and couldn't be locked. You will be hungover in the mornings so the fact you are not likely to be bothered by cleaners all week will be a bonus too. Boys will be boys and you probably won't want to wash either, so the cold shower won't be an issue. You will with mates, so you will be unlikely to be mugged for your wallets as you enter the apartment block like my friend was. The CCTV camera is hanging off the wall in the lobby, so there will be no risk of dodgy film of your escapades ending up on You Tube and your girlfriend seeing them.
