will not be going back

"hotel very difficult to find as there is only a small sign which is only noticable when you are under it,hotel looks clean from outside but once inside its gets a bit grubby,maid service is very poor,no clean sheets during the week we were there only had clean towels halfway through holiday. rooms were a good size but they looked a bit worn out due to previous stag/hen weekends and were not cleaned during our stay we even had to take our own rubbish out and dump it in the wheelie bins in the street, we had a few cockroaches for company.the pullout beds were broken and very uncomfortable and dirty, most of the electrical wall sockets were loose,kitchen once again a bit grubby which didn`t matter that much because once we had seen the cockroaches we decided to eat out all the time.we were always on edge as we couldn`t lock the balcony doors as the locks had been damaged and we had two 3yr old children.we also had to complain about people spitting at us from the balconys above whilst we were at the pool.the pool was poorly grouted and there were tiles missing which caused me to cut my foot,and it was not very clean.the surrounding area of the hotel is in a poor state in general,lots of dogs mess and rubbish along the streets.just to sum this holiday up water parks and zoo good value for money.entertainment at local bars/pubs very good,probably won`t go back to benidorm,definitely wont be staying at these appartments.don`t forget you have to pay 50 euros deposit on arrival for your room,and 20 euros for the safe."

one of the worst apartment i have been to

"i went to these apartments last summer there was 8 of us including a child at the age of one while we were there we had the lights in one of our rooms go out and then they wanted to move myself and to others to a speperate floor away from the others also in the other room there was a coakroach in the bathroom and when we did eventually all get moved there was a celing outside the room hanging down which was reported but nothing done about it also had to report guys from a few rooms above us spitting down on us but again nothing was done. also there is nothing for young ones to do at this hotel its more better for people who are just there for a weekend stag or hen do"

Just come back from a week away at...

"Just come back from a week away at benidorm ther were 4 of us all together. The appartments were fantastic to say we payed hardly anything for them. lovely views and not too far away from all bars pubs and resturants. The maid only came once which was the only thing wrong. The service there was good very friendly . and the pool, was just right. i would recommend this place for either couples or hen and stag doos not for families as not much for kids to do."

Never Again!

"on arrival to the playamar my reaction was OHH MY WORD!! it was a dump from the outside. inside wasnt much better. ok the room was clean but when u came in at night there were like mini centipeedy things all over the place and im terrified of creepy crawlys lol. my partner had 2 go in 1st every night i was that scared. the bar was crap an as for snacks available all the time, thatw as a lie. and the pool cockroach central. the location was terrible as well, we nearly got mugged one night only for some passers by.

hated the whole stay but love benidorm.

i no wat its like reading the reviews and starting to panic bout wat ur staying in, my advise is make up ur own mind bout the place but just read ll the reviews 1st. i deffinately wouldnt stay again and if you have kids it would b a no go.

Worst apartments we have ever stayed In

"Situated in a horrible back street in Benidorm full of dog mess. The apartment on the 6th floor we stayed in smelled of raw sewrage which was especially bad in the afternoon. The bed linen and towels looked very stained and old and were not changed once during our 7 night stay. Never again!!!"

not for a group of women

"we,re between the ages of 35-45 and the apartments themselves were very clean and comfortable, but very unsafe on a night time, one of us was mugged and another a man jumped out of the shadows and performed a lude sex act. there is waste ground opposite these apartments and the trouble comes from there....apart from these apartments been a bit of a treck to the beech and a bit too far from the the main strip of pubs its a good place to stay...but not recommended for a group of women"

Great Apartments

"Stayed on the 9th floor. There is two apartments to each floor as these apartments are built on the end of another set of apartments. They were superb. Kitchen with all the equipment one could need with fridge, lovely tiled bathroom with bathm shower, bidet, sink etc. Bedroom was twin beds with three double wardrobes, all fitted. Lounge

had table and chairs, two settees and sideboard. The balcony was big.

Table and chairs again and a pull out washing line. The sun came on the balcony at 11.30am and stayed thre till sunrise. The cleaner came

in twice in one week and changed the towels and replaced the toilet rolls etc. One could easily live in these apartments. These apartmemts are handy for the market which is very close. Easy walking

distance to town and beach. There is a bar with pool table near the lift area and outside the apartments are two other bars. We ate a lot

at a place called the Mountainside which is when coming out of the building turn left, turn right up the road and first on left, down 50 yards on the opposite side of the road and your there. If you order a platter, you need a big appetite because it is huge. The food

is very good and you are made very welcome by David, Phil, Maisie and

the crew. They also put enterainment on which is excellent. We had a good laugh there everytime we went. I would definetely stay here again

basic accomodation

"We stayed at the playamar with three grandchildren, not advisable as nothing for the children to do. Beds were not very comfortable and only saw the cleaner once when she knocked at 6.15pm and left clean towels. The reception and bar staff are helpful fast check in. Roomy apartment we were on 12th floor with a good view from the very roomy balcony. Mixed feelings about the aprtments like I said basic. The surrounding area around was very dirty and unkept. You had to dodge the dog mess which is everywhere especially down the cut through at the rincon estate near the cinema. Benidorm has really lost its appeal, not a very friendly ar family place to stay. The only good thing was Louis the Clown at the cellar club who is really a first class childrens entertainer. Can definetley say will not be going back to Benidorm with or without children."
