With its quiet setting and indoor-outdoor pool scene, the Terralta Apartments hit the mark for a chilled-out holiday. Like the modern restaurant and bar, spacious apartments are decorated in sunny primary colours. Location-wise, the beach is a 15-minute walk away.
Without a doubt, the biggest attraction here is the pool scene. In summer, the outdoor pool steals the show. It’s a huge curvy affair with water features that wouldn’t look out of place in a waterpark. There’s plenty in the way of sunloungers and parasols, too. In the winter, attention turns to the heated indoor pool. It’s housed under a glass roof, so you’ll feel like you’re swimming outside.
As for the apartments themselves, they’re arranged in brightly-painted three-storey blocks. You can choose from one and two-bedroom options, both of which come with the likes of TVs, air-conditioning and bigger-than-average balconies. In terms of décor, think funky blue sofas, blond-wood fittings and simple, comfy bedrooms.
When it comes to mealtimes, you’ve got a snack bar serving light bites like pizza, alongside more substantial Spanish and international dishes. And if you want to chill out by the pool, there’s a bar close to the water that's open in summer. Elsewhere, meanwhile, there’s a fitness suite and a games area with a pool table and table tennis.
In terms of location, the Terralta sits on a steep hill in a quiet residential area, so it has a slight out-of-town feel. When you want to hit the sands, Poniente beach is just a 15-minute walk away. For shopping and nights out, meanwhile, you can walk to the old town and the centre of Benidorm within about 25 minutes. And if you don’t fancy the legwork, you’ve got local buses and cabs to take you to and fro.

Was good for price.
We went all inclusive, even after the reviews about the food we figured we would prob spend more on cokes etc during the day. The food was ok, but depending on what time you went it could be well picked over with not much left or almost cold. However the apartments and all areas were very clean, which was good. People that were there moaned a lot about the food when we were there, but honestly I don't know what cuisine they were expecting! You get what u pay for! Overall it was a good holiday.More

4th visit to Terralta
Our 4th visit in six years to Teralta , we knew what to expect and were not disapointed . Yet again we went self catering so can't comment on the food or entertainment side of things . Pool is , understandably , the centre piece of the complex , the pool and surrounding areas are kept spotless at all times . Apatrtments are spacious clean and fairly modern , your room allocation is down to luck really , we had block 3 ground floor this year which though not having much of an outlook was fine for us ( except for sunday night when a crazed Spaniard went on a crazy mad rant next door to us at 2am , visit to reception seemed to do the trick ) the staff we found to be very helpful , one or two of the bar staff were a bit hit or miss but in general no real issues , we were out every night so cant comment on queing issues at the bars , would we stay again ? Probably . Would we recommend it ? AbsolutelyMore

Good family hotel
The bad thing about this hotel is that it's right at the top of the hill, which is quite a long way to walk when you've just been to the beach. But everything else is great! The pool is brilliant to and great for kids!More

Just got back from holidaying at this hotel. What can I say. If you are full of tattoos and have never been abroad before, this is the place for you. This place is overrun with Brits who have no manners, no dining etiquette and who have no problem at all swearing around children. I will say that the hotel itself was kept very clean and the staff were helpful and polite. The food, as mentioned in other reviews, was very basic and there wasn't a lot of it. The queues for the bar were often very long in the evenings which was quite frustrating. The manager was not helpful at all. When we pointed out that the adult only pool was being used by children who were dive bombing my 85 year old grandmother, we were told that there was nothing he could do. This meant that she no longer went for her daily swim, something that she's done on every holiday in 40 years. To sum up, nice hotel, rubbish manager, teaming with chavs.More
