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.

Decorated in sunny yellow with tiled flooring, the one-bedroom apartments provide a comfortable stay. They sleep up to four in a twin bedroom and two sofa-beds in the lounge area. You can make a snack in the kitchenette with the cooking rings, microwave or toaster. Just so you know, a refundable deposit is payable on arrival for any breakages.

In the old town
We just come back yesterday from half decent weather to rainy England. The hotel is located in a residential area on an incline which goes all the way practically to the sea front, if u not good on ya legs i wouldn't recommend it, the hotel itself is quite nice, staff very friendly rooms are decent size and clean. This time of year the food range is ok but not a lot to choose from. There are 4 blocks facing the pool which is shut this time of year also a small play area with slides. If u want the new town or want to see neptunes of the tv series benidorm its roughly the best part of an hour walk but in a taxi just over 5 mins (about â¬7 ) we paid one day. So all in all hotel is good but in high season i bet its very full and the size of pool and restaurant i don't think it's large enough but thats everyone own choice,and if u dont want to walk literally hours a day to main area its not for u but everyone is different so if u go enjoy if not then at least u know what and where it is !More
Very good for families
Stayed here in october must say great hotel for families, rooms were very spacious and a large balcony the kids loved the pool.the food was I'd say better than a lot of other hotels I've stayed in There could have been more choices but the quality and service was above average. I would recommend it to families on a budget we were all inclusive. And didn't spend a lot after that..The only extras we paid for was the TV you get 4 English channels. And a week wifi for the kids I pads. More
Three wonderful holidays
I've been three times now, with my two daughters, and have had a wonderful time each time. The last time was this July, and we walked absolutely everywhere. I know the hill back to the accommodation isn't for everyone, but if you are aware of it you can prepare yourselves, or just get a taxi! There is a great supermarket at the bottom of the hill, and the on-site shop is good for basics (they had an AWESOME Spanish red for TWO EUROS!!!). The apartments are spacious and clean, with good maid service. The kitchen is well-equipped for basic cooking, with a good-sized fridge. The beds are comfortable, sofas not quite so, but adequate. By the pool there are signs to say no reserving beds but if you're not down early enough you'll not get one in high season as every one has a towel on it! We laid out the back near the indoor pool with towels on the grass, which is great as you can use the trees for shade, and it's much quieter. One downside of the pool area is there is very limited shade. Don't really rate the food on-site, but if you're not on holiday for the culture and Spanish cuisine it's fine. Old Benidorm is fabulous, so much atmosphere in the evenings, lovely to stroll and people-watch, and loads of shops. I doubt we'll go back again as there is too much more of the world to see, but I LOVE Benidorm. It is less than an hour from the airport too, which is always a bonus.More

Pity about the prayer music
We have stayed at these apartments a total of six times and up until now have always enjoyed the quiet location, the cleanliness and the friendly and helpful staff. This year we arrived and were met as usual by the helpful and friendly receptionist who checked us in to Room 2110. This is on the first floor of Block 2. The apartment overlooked a private villa, not the best view we have had but it was Sunday afternoon, the sun was shining and all was well. However, there were a couple of things we were a tad disappointed with, the first being they charge you 20 euros to use WiFi for the week, which we think is a bit steep considering most other places are free. Secondly the charge for Pay as you go TV (so as to watch Sky football for one night) was 3.50 euros, cheap as chips really but the connection was so bad we did'nt get to see the football or anything else for that matter! so unless you are certain to get a good connection, I would'nt bother with the PAYGTV. As I say we have stayed six times in total and so obviously this alone tells you if it was not that good we would'nt keep giving them our business, however, possibly it will be our last stay as the villa opposite the room we were in played prayer music from dawn till dusk and beyond, one evening it went on until after 11 pm from 8.30 in the morning. We did mention it to the receptionist on our departure and were aware that other visitors found it most disturbing, it meant you could not have the doors open as the prayer music was quite haunting to say the least. We've been to Turkey and often experienced prayer music calling people to pray at certain times of the day but it did'nt last ALL DAY AND NIGHT!!!!!!!!!! I'm not sure what, if anything, can be done to address this issue, as some people may see it as an invasion of the right to do as you please in a free world, however, while in Benidorm on holiday, it's possibly the very last thing you think you might experience and so for this reason I think it might disturb most people in general. It's put us off going back unfortunately which is a shame as we always enjoyed staying at the Terralta.More

excellent family holiday
lovely clean room. we had 2 bed apartment and it was very spacious. we had room 1218 and it overlooked the front of the building, so some noise-from people arriving back late at night but nothing too bad (we were out of the main season)we could see the sea from our room though and the apartments overlooking the pool could not. the pool area was very clean and the pool is quite big,was cold but again that's the time of year. there is a covered, heated pool but that was empty for maintenance at the time. there is also a steam room, Jacuzzi but not very well advertised, its in block 4 level-1, we didn't bother to check it out cos it was very hot and we just used the outside pool. the staff are mostly friendly the man on reception could be a bit abrupt at times. the food wasn't very good the first few days and i was very disappointed but some people complained and the standard certainly improved,, it is like eating in a school dining room tho no atmosphere. drink very good, good measures. you get a card for your room and also to use as all inclusive, they swipe it when you go into for a meal and when you order drinks, wasn't a problem. your all inc finishes at 12 noon on the day you are leaving and also your card ceases to function at 10am so you cant get back into your room after 10am which we didn't realize as we paid extra to keep our room on, so had to go back to reception and the lady on there sorted it out for us. you laos need to pay your 60 euro deposit in cash. the apartment are about 10 minute walk downhill to the sea front and about another 10 mins walk into the old town, which is lovely by the way, nice little streets to wander round and shop to check out. we got a taxi back but only because it was so warm, it cost about 6-7 euros the rest of Benidrom is as you would expect, British pubs and pie n chips. the sea front is lovely though and had it been a bit cooler we would of liked to walk all the way along, maybe next time. the market is Sunday and Wednesday the bus stops just down the road and its easy to find, that again is as you would expect, lots of fake handbags, leather belts, clothes etc but was interesting to look around and good for people watching. not sure we would return to Terralta but not because there was anything wrong really,,just like to try somewhere new. Happy Holidays!More
