The rest of the amienities were pretty basic but serviceable. Staff were pleasent and helpful. Once out side the hotel the choice wasent very hard TURN left and walk ( although HENDRYS did supply a good breakfast 5 and a half euros (large). As other reviews have stated the beach is great warm and clean also quiet (missed all the kids). Shopwise you can't afford to be choosey cause there ain't alot. But after 10mins walk some shops start to appear. 7 euro's on a taxi to the new town is well spent, The sea front is nice (a little dear 42 euro's for 13 pints) but if a bar is empty even at 4 in the afternoon there is a GOOD reason why ( the BEER IS RUBBISH). The GUINNESS bar is good 4 sports to start, then on to the strip. The main strip is what you expect, everybody can get you free shots, 2-4-1's, fizzy wine ( depending on your skill you can get good results, 26 vodka red bulls 32 euros and 2-4-1's allnight). There are some bars to avoid (a man in a cowboy hat, vest , bumbag, tartan shorts singing chocolate salty balls should have been a give away but it had been a long night). Moving on very quickly people friendly, weather great and what we needed. Not too sure for a family holiday but it takes allsorts bertie. The only reason for a seven is becaue of the lack of bars near the hotel.

The room was clean and we had an amazing view from the 18th floor, but no kettle!.
Towels and bedding only changed once in 11 days!! and only one loo roll (you must supply your own). If you want to watch the tv you must pay 20 euros for the pleasure of having only one english channel,that shows repeats over and over!
You are advised to keep all your valuables safe in the safety deposit boxes which are provided in your room, but you have to pay another 20 euros for the key to lock the safe!!
Staff didnt seem interested and if you dont like bingo then what entertainment is there? Only positive is the location, close to the beach and not forgetting Hendrys bar. Wonderful food and pete who makes you so welcome just a shame he's not in the hotel!!!
Overall not impressed.

The location of the Beni-Beach apartments we found disappointing. A run down area of lost businesses and old shops and bowling centre gone. Very few varities to suit everyone taking 15 to 20 minutes walk on long lengthy beach main dual carriage way, directly opposite the hotel to get safely across to the beach.
Best kept Beach cleaned every night closed to public after dark which this apartment I would only recommend to beach lovers in high season not to walkers or tourists who love main centre shopping it took lots of strain on your feet up the new town round & round same circle. It was tiring on your feet trying to find the right road back to Beni-beach past a hill & wall. Take extra care and bring good walking boots.

The balcony was fab, very big with a superb view, got rather hot of a night so air con would have been an advantage.
We found the rest of the hotel to be clean & well maintained, we didn't try the snacks served behind the bar so can't comment on that but the entertainment in the bar area left much to be desired (very hi di hi).
However all staff including the aparently ignorant night porter were very very pleasent & always had a smile & a curtious greeting.
The location was a little bit more removed from the new town then we would have liked, but having the beach within a stones throw away was wonderful, and what an amazing beach, just beatiful!
Although I enjoyed my stay at this hotel I would probably chose to stay in the new town if I was to return.

It was further from the new town than we anticipated but a taxi costs 5-7 euros too the main pubby/clubby area.
Staff were very helpful there, and spoke excellent English, and would give you advice on anything.

Not impressed by the pool area, and the entertainment left a lot to be desired.
Cooking facilities sufficient for snacks only, but there are so many small very good value bars very close by, in particular "Reg

Yes it is true the sunloungers are in the carpark but I really don't think you could get them around the pool anyway. The pool, by the way, has a strange green tinge.
Staff were really friendly and helpful.
Sheets were not changed all week - not very nice when you've been on the sandy beach. Towels were too small and not very absorbant so definately take your own! You only get one toilet roll all week so take your own too.
On a more positive note the beach was fab and so close. The view from the huge balcony in the apartment was amazing.
There are some great places to eat in the old town where we stayed. Antonios was fab, lovely seafood! Also if you just want a decent breakfast there are lots of places along the sea front.
If you want a night out it only cost about

The place is like a prison camp the rooms are more from the 1930s than 2005!
The pool is small the bar is a joke after asking for a low room I got room on the 17th floor!
The area around this hotel is a mess!
I can't even write this report cause it would take too long to do. I only got back today and I couldnt wait to get home!
Did have a good beach though!!
