things to know re apartments
"We are not people to complain and this is not a compliant just a update of what people need to know when booking these apartments.
It is up a steep hill which wasn't mentioned when i booked my husband Andi have walking and breathing problems ,so it wasn't suitable for our needs,no heating and it was cold when we got there on 16th February George did bring us a heater so it was ok,but i took travel kettle hair dryer as i read there wasn't any of these things which three weren't,the beds were uncomfortable and creaky ,i didn't mind putting out rubbish and no cleaners great i loved it ,no getting up to let cleaners in it was clean and spacious and near everything it was just the hill that was the problem otherwise we enjoyed the Holidao Dianne."

"This is a very basic Apartment block, the staff were excellent. Ok, so no-one came in and cleaned the apartment, but if thats what you are looking for, get somewhere more expensive. It was great for me, the wife and our 2 children, its just far enough away from Benidorm to be quiet, but only about 5 minutes walk from the centre and the beach. Close to McDonalds, KFC, Burger King and Pizza hut. Perfect for kids, the pool was very quiet and the best thing for us is it has a private car park. We hired a car and went all over the place. It is only 10 minutes walk from Aqualandia, the water park, and a 20 minute drive from Terra Mitica the amusement park."

WORST PLACE EVER!!
"having family that live in benidorm we have been at lesat 10 times, we stayed at the don gregorio for a week and it is the worst place we ever could have stayed in not only was it mucky and you never saw any staff on our last night there we got broke into having the whole apartment turned over taking all valubles and cigarettes and tobacco we bought, also taking our 12 year old daughters ipod phone and gameboy. Having spoken to the locals, we found out that this was not unusual for people to be robbed on the last night of there holiday, when they stay in this apartment. Would not reccomend staying here to my worst enemy !!!!

"Had a wonderful (and cheap) out of season break there.
No, its not luxury and there is no pampering, but you get a bright spacious clean apartment that you can call your own.
You get clean sheets and towels after a week, but other than that you are left alone.
We found adequate pans plates and cups (perhaps people didn't look in the dresser in the living room?)
We are looking forward to going again in January 2009. Its just what we want!

"Arrived at the appartments about 00:30,lady from the juke box gave us a lift to collect the keys free of charge from another hotel.Appartment was clean,tidy but basic.No noise what so ever during the 7 days there.The Pool is cleaned every day and the snack bar is brilliant.I Would not hesitate to return to the same appartments.The menu at the Juke box is also worth looking at,some real good homecooking."

"I read the comments on the hotel before we left, & knew what to expect. We too had to collect the keys from another hotel, but a very kind lady from the Juke box bar down the road gave us a lift there & back. A deposit is required in most hotels in Spain, so nothing new there. Getting in the room, I was pleasantly surprised, big, spacious, clean, but that was in the dark. next morning we got to see the appartment in the light, not very clean at all, my wife scrubbed the place before using any facilities. The cleaners only called once in the ten days we where there, & that was only to change the towels & sheets. The pools small, but because the area is small you get to know all the other guests. The bar & restaurant at the side is excellent, & reasonably priced. Although the hotel is situated on a hill, it is close to the main area of town. But i surpose you get what you pay for at the end of the day. But if your a Howard Hughes, dont stay here."

"i was disgusted at the state of the pool you couldnt even see the bottom for the water was so dirty. we were there for a week and never had a cleaner or clean towels. we arrived at 8:30pm and no one was on reception we had to go to a different apartment out of our way to pick up the keys, then when we finally found it they asked us for 100euros or Â£70 and because we didnt have that on us they wanted our passports but we didnt give them in case they wouldnt give them back. overall the apartments were a big disappointment it was up the top of a hill away from everything we would never go back or recommend it to anyone."

"When arriving at the appartment it seemed basic but ok, then when it came to booking in everything went wrng, we were told that we hadnt reserved a room even though we had confirmation of the booking & payment in full..the guy on reception couldnt understand us we couldnt understand him and it took about 4 hours from arriving at the apprtment to be allocated a room!
The room was clean and quite spacious but everything went wrong, we rarely had hot water and wasnt enough for the 4 of us in the room to get a hot shower, the shelf fell out of the wall, we had no lock on the balcony door, the chairs wer broken, the lights wouldnt work in the bedroom if we was using a plug socket at the same time! in the end it just got worse for us! Self catering was impossible, there was no kitchen appliances to be able to use...
I wouldnt ever think of stayin there again "

"We arrived at the Don Gregorio around lunch time where we were ask to pay a deposit of 100 euros or 70pounds, as we already knew and expected it on our arrival. On the 4th day of our holiday we were shocked to find out that we had no hot water, when we went to reception to tell the man he didnt understand and kept saying "water in 1 hour" he couldnt speak a word of english. The day before we left we had to collect our deposit, so at 4pm when reception re-opened until 8pm we went to get our deposit but the man from reception was nowhere to be found. he arrived back at 7:45pm which we found shocking.
I wouldnt recomend this to anyone it was worse than what we expected for our money.............................................AWFUL PLACE TO STAY!!!!!!!!!!! "
