6 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
not so marvellous mariscal
"Stayed here for 2 weeks 7th to 21st may 2014, apt spacious enough but very basic and sparse, needs updating a bit grubby and furniture seen better days. nice pool but nowhere to sit , no chairs or loungers unless you buy your own. no reception and key collection for us was from Fincas on Madrid avenue some 20 min walk away. water went off with no explanation for hours on end 2 days while we were there. area okay, central for all but noisy until 7am (but this is Benidorm after all) yobs got in to apt a few times and were screaming and fighting at 6am so security needs tightening up. TV needs euros to watch it and no English channels apart from news. will go to Benidorm again but never stay at Mariscal - lots better apartments for less money and with more facilities. "

Marsical IV Sept 10th to 17th 2011
"Apartment A on 10th floor...... Didnt expect much booked direct and paid 259euros for 4 beds, 2 bedroom apartment for 7 nights, price v/g, it was clean, but lots of wear and tear on furnitures, fridge worked, toaster blew mains power, no iron, had tv(working), noisey, even on 10th floor, beds squeked and mattress lumpy, no change of linen or cleaner while we were there, lift sounds at it will break down any moment(luckly it didnt) But got some freebies, yes all free, around 12 bites from something, all over my body. Would i use it again, maybe, the price was right for 4 people and could have squeezed another couple in on the sofa bed. if you want somewhere to crash out for up to 6 people then this might do, providing you dont mind sharing with nippers(fleas or whatever they are) "

Like staying in a cupboard
"These aparts are small, cramped and dirty. The noise is also unbearable. The fridge in our apart leaked and ruined everthing, the toaster and iron didn't work. I reported the fridge and toaster after day 2, toaster was replaced but fridge left for the next customer. I didn't know about the iron until day of leaving! On the plus side, the bar downstairs is good!"

"We as a family (2 Adults and a teenager of 15) have just returned from a weeks holiday here and would not recommend these apartments to anyone English, or anyone who likes to lay around the pool. There are only 12 sun loungers between the 2 blocks of 75 apartments and you are not allowed around the pool until 10AM otherwise some Spanish guy (we were told he was t;he President of the apartments) orders you away and not to return until exactly 10am (not a minute earlier). The apartment itself was basic but clean the towels and bedding were only changed once a week, but the walls are like paper and you can hear everything next door."

"The apartments although basic, had everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. They had a private pool and gardens, with car parking. They are close to all the bars yet quiet at night. There is a bar attached to them called the Stanley Park, everyone gets a warm welcome there. The resort has been cleaned up over the years, with the variety of places to eat reasonable food greatly expended. The only draw backs being stag and hen night parties if you have little ones and the people offering scratch cards with free prizes, which are nothing more than a way of you visiting a presentation for holiday share (time share)."
