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.

Not bad at all!
Just spent 7 days here for a quick break and some sunshine. Emailed beforehand for a pool view. Prompt reply and request fulfilled. We knew about the hill and location before we travelled - I don't understand why people read reviews, ignore this then complain! Yes, it's a 10 minute walk downhill to the town, but there is a bus stop outside the hotel and taxis for those who don't want to walk back up. If you factor this cost into your holiday you can't go wrong. We, however, hired a car. It's very cheap to do so in Spain currently and it enables you to get out and about and explore some of the lovely nearby towns - Villajoiyosa, Albir, Altea etc. All lovely and worth a visit. The hotel was lovely and clean, the staff excellent and helpful. Yes, you have to pay extra for TV, safe, Wi Fi. We hired the safe and TV, but it was cheaper to buy a bolt on package from my service provider for internet access. We stayed half board plus. Drinks in the restaurant were available on draught. The wine was particularly palatable and I am fussy! Drinks in the bar were among the cheapest we have found and factor-in happy hour from 9 til 10.30 and it provides fantastic value for money! The entertainment was dire/non-existent almost, but this didn't bother us! The food was just ok although we found something to eat all evenings. There is usually a fish dish, a meat dish and pasta. No pizza or rice dishes (apart from boiled rice with curry). There was chicken a couple of nights and some particularly nice barbecued spare ribs! The salad bar was limited. Breakfast was the usual fayre - bacon (Spanish - but this is Spain!), sausages, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes plus boiled eggs. There was also a choice of pastries and fruit. The indoor pool is small - a kind of conservatory affair at the far side of the hotel. We didn't use it as it was fairly busy. Under the main building off the bar is a sizeable children's games room with an array of machines (payable). I imagine it is popular with children in the summer. We only lay out a couple of days and you can hire mattresses (foam) for 1 euro each from reception. Daily newspapers are available also from reception and the shop opens twice a day for 2 hours for basics. All in all and for what we paid this was a great value holiday. The hotel is not in the centre of town, but up a steep hill in a residential area. Parking was not problem at the back of the hotel but 5 euros a day to park in the hotel was a bit steep! I would return here but probably not in the main summer months as I can see it would be very busy and easily overcrowded round the pool and in a quite small restaurant. As long as you read the reviews and go with an open mind, you will not be disappointed. We weren't and I am sure we will be back.More

Too far out of the way.
Hotel reception service consistently good and check in was superb , thanku miguel. Rooms spacious clean and functional. Outdoor pool looks good but was too cold to try. Indoor heated pool was o.k. for an hour but could have been warmer. Cheap bar , food was awful. The main problem was the distance from everything else , its a good 10 minute walk to any decent bars , restaurants and up a rather long steep hill. Oh and the entertainment at the hotel is worse than the food. Will not return.More
First Class Holiday at Terralta
We have just returned from having an excellent holiday at Terralta. We visit this Aparthotel every year. This year was more enjoyable than in previous years, On arrival, we were greeted by the Reception staff, who are a great assets to this complex. Our Apartment, as always, was immaculate. Bar staff were very efficient. Nothing was any trouble to them at anytime of the day. We will be returning again during this year.More
