the apartments very clean, yes basic but we were self catering.
location good just seconds from the lovely beach,we had an apartment which was at the back of the apartments so we had no view, but you dont go on holiday to stay in.
all hotel staff very friendly, helpful everything ready for when we arrived.
i would defo stay here again..

One of our bedrooms looked out into the internal corridor which was fine, unfortunately our bedroom, the living area and the balcony (if you can call it that) looked out onto a grotty alley and a block of residential apartments which are in need of a make-over. You had to stand on the balcony, lean right over and crane your neck and you could just see the sky. There are external shutters which you are supposed to pull down when you go out, it looks like a prison cell when you do that. HAving shutters and the lack of a "view" was quite depressing.
Although clean they are extremely basic. Considering our apartment could sleep 6, there was a table which only sat 4 and no spare chairs, a 2 ring electric hob, no oven and a microwave. The one room had the table, sideboard, kitchen area and a very flimsy sofa bed-uncomfortable to sit on, a small fairly useless portable TV with a bad picture and 2 English speaking channels

Watch out for pick pockets as my purse was taken form my bag right outside the hotel otherwise we had no problems.
Entertainment is mostly in the New Town but every afternoon at the Heartbreak Hotel on the seafront was magic, good entertainment and not too pricy drinks, we loved John the Fidler and Pablo but watch out for Fernando with the camera!!

The apartment itself was basic. We were at the rear and so had a view of the rear of other buildings. Their were no bedside tables, which is needed if you are like me and have no where to put your glasses!
Benidorm old town is lovely and the position of these apartments is great but the apartments do need upgrading and the noise put us right off!

The rooms are clean but basic,there is a kettle but it is much easier and a lot faster to boil water in the microwave,as the electric rings you have to use to boil it on are very slow heating up.
The air conditioning unit is the best I have come across and kept the apartment fridge like on the hottest days !
The staff are very friendly and helpful. Last year I stayed at the Avenida Hotel but found the food a bit bland but being in the Avenida Apartments gives you use of all the hotels amenities which is a nice bonus . Our friends were given a room at the back with a balcony that looked out onto a brick wall, they managed to transfer into another room, but that is something to be wary of.
Will stay there again.

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.
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

The situation of the apartments is great, right in the Spainish part of the town.
We had a fabulous time and will def return again.
