To be honest the whole apartment block was a complete dump....I have NEVER stayed in a worse place in my life, it was full of stag and hen parties who drank and smoked the whole time round the pool taking over the kids area and my son couldn't even get into the pool. The whole experience was awful, I have tried to contact onthebeach.co.uk to complain but surprise surprise I can't seem to get them, I would just like to warn everyone NEVER EVER book with this company as far as I'm concerned they are real con artists.

Hotel tip: Rubbish
The swearing was from the gutter. The staff are great and will do anything for you its not there fault that stag party's and hen party's behave in such a manner.
If they put a stop to such party's using the hotel I would gladly go back until then I will not use the Halley again.

On arrival I found the apartments looking very dated on the outside,with the pool area looking very neglected.
At reception I was checked in with the minimum of fuss by a fairly pleasant guy (60 euro deposit)and made my way to my room on the 6th floor.
On entering my first impression was that the place was screaming out for re-decoration. It was clean enough but the decor/furniture looked as if it hadn't changed in 20 years !
As we were on a weeks stag do we spent very little time there. During that time there were no changes of towels or bedclothes. We never used the kitchen for cooking thankfully as the utensils and cooker seemed very grubby. As we got the apartment for a very reasonable price it probably did the job for us.
If you can get these apartments for a super price then go ahead but remember it is no palace. But as long as you dont set your sights too high, you may just get away with a visit here.

When we arrived our room was not clean. It smelt musty and we had to go out to buy cleaning things to clean it ourselves. Never used the cooker as it was dirty. I have never been to an apartment where you had to boil a pan of water to have a drink. It was like being in dark ages so we went out to buy a kettle.
By Wednesday we had to go and ask for clean towels as all week we never saw a cleaner so our bed sheets were not even changed all week. What was meant to be a restaurant was a storage room full of old junk was nowhere to get a drink and on checking out there is no lock up for your cases, so you have to sit with them at the main door as there is no safety in leaving them unattended.
Found staff very unhelpful even when it came to a simple thing as asking for a taxi was told we had to go to main road had to walk down dimly lit side street will never stay here again overall very poor.

I wish the cafe/bar was open but there are plenty of eating places very close by.
Staff on Reception have always been friendly and help out whenever they can.
No entertainement in the apartments but who wants to stay there when you have all the pubs and clubs to visit. In Benidorm there is something for people of all ages.
We are going back to Benidorm in November for a Hen Weekend but cannot get booked into the Halley as they do not take 2 night bookings.
Love the Halley & Benidorm

Apartments basic but clean if you stay here take a kettle or you will be boiling pans for your hot drinks.
The only downfall was that it stated there was a bar resturant in the apartments the two weeks we were there it was not open so if you want a cool drink during the day you will have to go to the local supermarket. On your checkout day the only place you can hang out is at the pool as there is no facilities where you can wait until its time for you to leave. Unfortunitly it was raining on our last day so we had to find shelter under the umbrellas by the pool

Supermarkets and smaller shops right round the corner so even though it is self catering, you don't have to carry shopping bags very far! Also has a pub on the corner beside it which does good pub grub so if you can't be bothered walking far for a hangover cure you'll be grand!
The pool is lovely and clean and gets the sun for all of the day. Met some lovely folk round the pool and the staff were freindly as well.
We had a late check out and while we couldn't keep the room on later than 11am, we did have use of a shower room and bathroom later that day and they let us keep our cases in the lobby.
Would definately stay here again - have no complaints at all (although if the bar/restaurant area had been open it would have been even better). Plus it was so cheap! I recommend anyone considering a trip to Benidorm stay here.

The loacation of the apartments is ideal, only 5 minutes walk to the main bar area and not to noisey at night so you can still get a good nights sleep (if you get in early enough).
The staff are very friendly but some do struggle with basic english there was no entertainment at the apartments but that didn't bother me as there was loads to do near by and I wasn't in the apartments at night.

Very nice and clean and spacious. Large balconies. Nice clean pool and a bar and food if required. Close to all ameneties and local english bars and restaurants.
Only one complaint really about the lifts, they are very small, two people and some cases fills them. They broke down twice and we had to walk up to the 16th floor in searing heat.
Apart from that I am booking again for next year.
