We stayed at the Avenida Apartments for 2 weeks 4th-18th June.
Our Airtours transfer was a shambles, from arrival at Alicante to our accommodation took longer than our flight. You are required to change to a mini bus as they claim the street is not suitable for coaches, yet you are dropped at a street corner which is used by coaches all the time.
Our transfer took us past the old town to Finnestrat, back to the old town, we changed to the mini bus and went back to Finnestrat then back to the old town, we were the last drop off and our friends did the same flight to the same accommodation in an hour less the next week.
Apart from that the rep informed us that we should make an appointment if we wished to see her during ...
our stay as visits are now a thing of the past, another Airtours cost cutting exercise.Read More
The apartments have a microwave, fridge and soap and shampoo provided. Maid service was good when you could get it we had to ask after the fifth day as no one had done anything in our room or even changed the towels. We had e-mailed the apartments a couple of weeks in advance to request a room overlooking the street, which we were fortunate to have been given, our friends were in the other side of the block and looked onto a back wall and service walkway.
Reception staff were very helpful.
I read all the web reports I could find on this accommodation and noise from outside seemed to be the only downside. These apartments are very noisy due to poor insulation between the rooms on all sides above and below and due to the covered courtyard design of the building where noise echoes throughout. People are passing by only a couple of feet from your bed at all hours, and late night drunks have little respect for others. Do not stay here if you like your sleep. Our friends opposite woke up on their first night thinking that someone was in there room because they could hear talking from the next room.
The hotel is very nice especially the bar/lounge area and the pool we found adequate as it was not too busy.
Overall the location and facilities are all we wanted but we won
