Hotel tip: We were on the 17th floor and had a great view of most of Benidorm. We also looked down on hotel Sol Pelicanos' swimming pool where they film "Benidorm".

On the odd day 1 of the lifts wasn't working but there were 2 others. The most we waited was about 2 mins while the lift came from the top floor.
What made me laugh was people on the 1st and 2nd floor complaining about the time it took the lift to get to the ground. They could have walked by the time they waited!
We had the studio apartment which consisted of a pull out bed in the living room. The only think it did lack was a microwave but here was a small grill oven.
There was a cleaning deposit of 100e and we had to collect our keys at another hotel as we arrived out of hours but it wasn't a hassle. The person from the bar across the road looked after our cases and we got a taxi. It only took about 10 mins and cost 6e and that was with the taxi waiting.
We had to check out at 10 the next day but we weren’t leaving until 6 so we were able to put our cases in the hotel garage.
I was surprised by how quiet the apartments were. I've been in other places where kids and adults are up partying all night. Maybe it’s because unlike a like of apartments people actually own homes within the apartment block which keeps it a lot quitter
In all a cheap and cheerful holiday. I would definitely go back to these apartments and would recommend these to anyone.

We also had to pay £40 or 60 euro deposit even though we were told that no deposit was due, another mistake by reception, and because our flight was early on the Saturday we couldn't get our money back then, fortunately a family member still there can collect it for us.
The apartment itself was fine, basic but clean. Fairly quiet except for the live outdoor entertainment from the nearby hotel which doesn't stop until midnight (later on Friday night), ok for us as our kids are 9 & 11 but might be a problem with younger children trying to sleep.
Pool was freezing and loungers cost 2 euros each per day. You can't take any food or drink to the pool area, you have to buy it from the cafe. Towels were changed mid-week but no clean linen.
All in a cheap & cheerful option and we would go back.

As soon as we arrived we were impressed by the service of seguro reps as we were greeted in the airport and given the keys to our apartment (at 2am).
We had to pay 60 euros deposit to cover any damage but we knew about this when we booked the holiday we got this money returned day of check out with no hassles.
The room was clean, basic, but only had a large sofa bed that separated to become 2 single beds, at first a hassle to make beds up each night but got used to this. Included in room was fridge, 2 oven rings, microwave/grill, toaster, kettle, pans, cutlery etc.
We were on floor 17 daunting at first but well worth it views of Benidorm spectacular especially at night.
There were Spanish people living in the apartments, but they were always friendly and talkative.

Good area for easy access to beach and old town.
Would go back again.

Didn't see many staff just the porter, you must hire sunbeds for 2 euros to use round the pool, which we never did, went to the Melias pool every day.
No entertainment on site, next time if I used again would book a apartment which has a bedroom. Also no air con, but we bought a stand up fan for 20 euros, cheaper than hiring 1, for what we paid we couldn't complain.
