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.
Decorated in sunny yellow with tiled flooring, the two-bedroom apartments provide a comfortable stay. They sleep up to six in double and twin bedrooms plus there are two sofa-beds in the lounge area. There's a kitchenette with cooking rings, microwave or toaster so you can make a snack too. Just so you know, a refundable deposit is payable on arrival for any breakages.
Nice clean apartments, friendly staff, yes its a bit off the map. but nice to be away from the scooter brigade.taxi ride to our fave bar in benidorm-morgan's tavern.few nice local english bars, down the hill, danny's bar-lovely welcome,Coach and horses, both for a decent pint lager.had nice relaxing week from 5th april, very quiet, couldnt understand why there wasnt more people, pool was deserted every day, had lovely room with pool view.well equipped, plenty room for myself, hubby, and 16 year old.now for the downside..crazy to have to pay 60 euro incase any damage to room.. (when we handed key in at end of stay they didnt even check the room).you budget for your hols, this is an unnecessary extra..and the charge for wifi is ridiculous-20 euro, but for one device only, crazy..we paid enough for the room,wifi should be free..hence we never used it..more charges if you wanted english channels on tv..again-we didnt bother..Entertainment-none much to speak of considering it was easter hols, kids disco and karaoke. .which is why we ventured into benidorm most nights..Overall a quiet and relaxing hol, but at 450 pound each-self catering, it fell a lot short of what we expectected..would we stay again-not unless they improved the entertainment..and stopped all the ridiculous extra charges..we have stayed in much better hotels for less..Tip-the shop onsite is poorly stocked, and hardly ever open..its worth a trip down the hill, turn right at the bottom on beach front, passed dannys bar, big cheap supermarket,well worth the trip if you are stocking up for a week or two..dont be put off by comments about the walk up hill to hotel, its only ten mins..only a problem for people with disability, or elderly..More
Another fantastic holiday at the Terralta
We have just returned after our third stay at the Terralta. It was brilliant. We love the location of the hotel as it is in a very quiet area of Benidorm. It is out of the way a little but that is one of the main reasons why we choose this aparthotel. The hotel itself is immaculate and the pool area is lovely. Our kids enjoy the playpark which is also very nice. The heated indoor pool is an added bonus when the weather is a little cooler. The staff at reception are always extremely helpful whatever our query. We really cannot fault this hotel - a real find!! Looking forward to returning next year.More

THE best apartments in Benidorm!
Have just returned from our 9th visit to these lovely apartments.
Spacious apartments, beautiful pool area, spotlessly clean, friendly helpful staff, situated in a very quiet residential area!
I can never understand why people 'moan' about the hill and the location of the Terralta. In every description of these apartments, whether it be on-line or in a travel brochure, it clearly states the location of them! Quite simple, if you don't want to 'tackle' the hill (which isn't too bad actually!) then don't book these apartments!
Apparently the old Manager has now retired and the new Manager was always around and seemed very friendly.
I cannot really comment on the food, as we ate out in the evenings......Not sure this would be a place I would choose if I wanted an All-Inclusive holiday though.....but for self catering, it is up there with the best!
Lots of different nationalities stay here, therefore, very chilled, and mainly peaceful throughout the day and not a 'typical lager lout' in sight!
All in all, a brilliant place to stay, where the staff can not do enough for you. Keep up the good work guys and gals - we will be back!More
We enjoyed these apartments they are kept very clean and you always get a ola from the staff they sit a bit out of the town and the walk up the hill wasn't good for my legs but someone did mention there was a bus,the food was good but sometimes anot warm enough we did a lot of our eating in the old town of benidorm Spanish Italian and English would certainly go backMore
Very clean but food basic and lukewarm
Just back from a week in a one-bedroom apartment with my partner and his mum. Very clean and spacious apartment, however needs a mirror in the bedroom. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, however Jose needs to brush up on his people skills as seemed very disinterested and quite rude at times. The night we arrived, he announced at 11.50 - We close!! (very welcoming!!) My partner could never get an Irish Coffee (even though this is advertised). Jose's excuses ranged from the coffee machine being switched off to they didn't have any cream! Location of apartments is a little out of the way but you can be on the prom in around 10 minutes of a stroll so not a problem. Wouldn't recommend for people with mobility problems. If I was staying there again, I would go self-catering as food is very basic (although there is a varied choice) - it is also lukewarm - which I realise is very common in Spanish hotels. Tea and coffee not nice. We had a lovely balcony with a pool view which was nice.More
