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.

Good accommodation but be prepared for a walk
We stayed at Terralta in October 2014 for one week. The facilities are fine, the rooms are clean and spacious and the staff friendly and helpful. The pool is great for the kids and there is a games room. I can't comment on food as we ate out but the bar is fairly well stocked and prices are reasonable. The big downside is the location as it is situated on a steep hill, it really takes it out of you walking back from the beach or shops so budget for taxis of you can.More

Terralta - Feliz Navidad!
This is the 2nd time we have visited the Terralta for Christmas. If you are looking for a very quiet and out of the way place to stay with good sized rooms, kept adequately clean this is ideal. Before arriving we emailed the hotel and asked for a pool view room, as rooms at the side of the hotel get no sun all day, when we arrived we were delighted to be in a pool view exactly as we requested. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and clean. The reception staff are very helpful. The evening bar staff (hello Ramon) are brilliant. The entertainment guy is hilarious, BYE BYE! He tries very hard to please but be aware all entertainment stops at 11.30 on the dot due to location. A few points I would like to make....The Terralta is not close to any other hotels or bars/shops, you have to walk a fair way to get to any. Its not ideally suited for anyone with walking difficulties. There is an onsite shop, but we were disappointed to find this was closed "for the low season", and it was the opinion of us and a few others we talked to that the hotel is loosing trade by keeping the shop closed, for once you have made the journey to the nearest shop you tend to just keep going for the beach is literally a further 2 minutes away with its variety of shops/bars. The number 26 bus comes to the stop opposite the entrance around 5 minutes past the hour. The beds are not very comfortable I woke most mornings aching . The charges for the wifi, satellite TV and launderette are pretty steep, with wifi 10 euros per day or 20 per week for 1 device only. tv 3.5 euros per day . The launderette is 4.5 euros for the washer and another 4.5 euros for the dryer... The bar food is adequate but could be improved. We ate here a couple of times as we ventured out most days being self catering... The indoor pool is a blessing, we had it to ourselves the times we used it. There is a market ever Wednesday behind the hotel, if you walk along the side road and cut through the trees and then look for the car park below you will find it.More

I struggled to fault this place, and value was exceptional
We stayed at this hotel for a week over Christmas. Although a fair size, it appeared quiet and empty. However they tell me it was at 50% occupancy. It is located at the end of a cul de sac in a quiet residential area, which means it was VERY quiet. I did not hear any road noise or noise from bars, or holiday makers. This is a major advantage, to get a quiet nights sleep. The downside is that it is a 10 minute walk down to the beach, and 20mins into the center of the old town. This was ideal for us, and no problem.(I would rather a quiet location than front line, and road/bar noise). Some people say the 10 min walk uphill, back is not suitable for old people. Maybe true for those with very poor mobilty, but it isnt that hard and many of the residents over Christams were elderly and had no issues.It may be more uncomfortable in the mid summer heat, but buses run hourly to the hotel entrance, and more often to the bottom of the road. (about E1.20, no matter how far you traverl). Taxis are about E6-7 from the old town, and E10 from the new town. The max number of passengers is 4, there are no larger taxis in Benidorm. The rooms were large, modern and exceptionally clean and well kept. (we stayed in a 2 bedroom appt. with 6 people and it wasnt cramped (except for waiting for the shower/toilet - but there are communial ones downstairs).Cleaners were hard at every area within the hotel and it was spotless. The hotel staff were absolutely brilliant. They were all very friendly, accomodating and nothing was a problem. Questionaires saught feedback, and they obviously were genuinely interested how to improve. We were half board, and with a few fussy eaters were wary. However, the food and service was excellant. Lots of choice, and quality dishes. (maybe needs a few more puddings, but then there is always fresh fruits, ice creme, yoghurts and cheese). I am amazed how few people eat in the restaraunt (20%), when it is such good value. It did make meal times quiet and relaxed with so few people. Christmas eve, and Christmas lunch were excepional with an upgraded menu, and show cooking of expensive cuts of meat (lamb chops, pork fillet). Although we were half boad, it included a Christmas lunch, with Cava. It worked out about Â£10 per person per day, the price of a light meal and drink elsewhere. Not sure if it applies all year or just in Winter, but it is half board plus which meant unlimited free beer, wine and soft drinks in the restaraunt. Either side of evening meal, there were 2 happy hours in the bar (2 for 1). This was exceptional value, because drinks were not expensive to start with. (2 wines for E1.20). Room TV was OK, mainly spanish, with a few english news and finace programs. However, there is Sky Sports in the bar. Overall, I havent stayed in a better value hotel. There was not much I would have improved on, but will let you know the negetives. The beds were a bit hard, especially the double. WiFi was a bit pricy at E20/week, especially since it applied per device. (you couldnt afford for a family of 6 to all have it activated)More
