Reviewed July 14, 2012

we have just returned from 2 weeks holiday in carlos v july 2012 OMG how awful the toilet would nt flush on day 2 we reported it 6 times in 4 days nothing got done .there was 6 of us in the one appartment ,including a 6 year old child ,we had to flush the toilet with a bucket of water ,,day 5 we finally got it mended after a few arguments with the odd member of staff we managed to find every now and then ,,,we had no cleaner in what so ever ,,they threw a bag of clean bedding and towels in the room after 1 week which we had to change our own beds ,,whilst doing this we found bed bugs in the beds ..we showed these to a woman who was occasionally on reception and she said they was mosquitos which they defininatly was nt .the noise at night from clubs etc carried on untill 6am there was prostitutes performing right outside the appartments in a little alley at the side ,,and believe me you saw everything ,,also across the road from carlos v in the appartments was a dirty old man flashing his bits ,,and there s more 2 different rooms was broken into with no forced entry ,,on the day before we was due to come home we had to beg for our 150 euro deposit because we was leaving in the early hours the next day the horrible very unfriendly lady would not give it to us we had to get in touch with head office ,,an inspectors came and promised we d get our money the same night at 5 pm .we went to reception at 5 pm where we was met by a big spanish bloke who would not hand our money over till we gave him a set of keys ,which we only had 2 sets between 6 of us ,,we was warned by other people who had been robbed once they had handed there spare set over with no forced entry ,,,we handed the keys over but had to stay in on the last night of our hols ..i m warning anyone thinking of booking carlos v DON T .oh and also ,some spanish lads kept throwing broken GLASS bottles in pool from thier balcony ,,so anyone thinking of booking these appartments i would strongly advise you against them apart from that ,,i love benidorm ]]]]

i don't normally take much notice of the negative comments on here, i always like to deceide for myself,We have just returned from 9 days in carlos V apartments. There wasn't anyone there to greet us on arrival so the bartender in charles bar next door buzzed for the housekeeper to take our 150 euro deposit and give us the keys, A scruffy looking bloke with baleing twine for a belt!! came to greet us. The room was clean and spacious but when we went to go out of the apartment the patio doors wouldn't lock so after finding baleing twine belt man to ask him to look at them he just shrugged his shoulders and said it will be fine don't worry about it nobody will break in ure on the 5th floor, I wasn't happy about this so he said he would send maintanence up tomorrow to look at them ( needless to say nobody ever came) so we left all the lights and television on everytime we went out, we had a few sleepless nights due to the noise of other holiday makers and the noise from the nearby bars but this was to be expected with the area that the apartments are situated, I would andvise sticking to the shower and not having a bath as i did one day as the water from the bath when let out came back up the drain in the bathroom along with sewerage from the other apartments. were not snobby people who normally complain but we won't be going there again, Ideal for hen/stag partys on a short stay basis

Room Tip: Higher floor levels are an advantage

Would not recommend this place to anyone. It wasnt very clean no linen changes and there were two robberies while we were there. There was gypsies out front begging and robbing men. Not impressed wasnt very secure and did not feel safe.

I stayed in the Carlos V from the 16th to the 21st 2011 and on the morning when we were checking out i opened the safe and all my money and credit cards HAD BEEN STOLEN but there had not been a break-in and guess what no one about to report this matter to so had to go to the police and report it . And when i got home i put in google Carlos V robbed and it is not good reading very poor i even found one for the room i stayed in room 2c . In my view some one who works there is robbing rooms

Room Tip: Room 2C on the second floor keeps getting robbed by the staff

We stayed here in june 2011, and we ranged in age from 2-57. It was clean, friendly and had lovely balconcies for every room.
Down side, we got badly bitten by mozzies, and as there's no air con in this hotel, there was no way to prevent constant bites.
The building to the right (near the internet cafe) that overlooks the pool area has a man whome we pressume lives there, around 5-6 levels high that looks over at the people using the pool area and masterbates up against his window as he does so. Several times this appeared to be whilst children were looking. So BEWARE of this fact!
The staff were lovely ..ola salva! As was the owner tony x

Room Tip: sleep on the right side of the building if you don't want to party all night!

Just returned from a short break. After reading reviews on apartments we very extremely cautious and very safety conscious. We were in apartment 6a and were pleased to be on that floor as there didn't appear to be any way of gaining entry other than thru the door. Apartment was clean and spacious beds comfy facilities good. Large fridge freezer in fully equipped kitchen we also had a huge balcony with patio table and 6 chairs. We had to pay a security deposit of 150 euros (against damages). On our departure our apartment was inspected and deposit paid on debit card was refunded. However there was no where for us to leave our rubbish which had accumulated during our stay so we had bagged it all up and left it by the door. This was a mistake it almost cost us our deposit we were told there is a green rubbish container up the road that we should have been placing our rubbish in. Word of warning to anyone staying on 6th floor we had a elderly man in apartments opposite I believe they are residential masturbating at his window this happened twice during our 3 night stay. Also front gates to apartments were never locked neither was front door so security was very poor. Liked location disliked masturbating man and was concerned at all times about security. I think this place is much better suited to an all male group..
