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.
2-bedroom apartment sleeps up to 6, with a double and twin bedroom, plus 2 sofa-beds in the lounge area. All apartments have kitchenette with cooking rings, microwave, kettle, toaster and bath with shower. A refundable deposit for breakages is payable on arrival. Air-conditioning is payable locally.

great apartments, staff, food, pool, if you go self catering order breakfast in the bar better than buffet. Night entertainment rubbish snake show, parrot show, wild bird show awful but plenty pubs and clubs in other part of town went to "talk of the town" bar saw "elvis" very good and a comedian ( old school) he was brilliant especially when ho did his ventriloquist act with the monkey. First time in Benidorm great.More

Never go back
Just back from a weeks holiday with family 6 adults 1 child... Hotel itself is clean... Rooms are clean pretty basic beds are so uncomfortable.... Staff are rude except for Miguel on reception was so nice and the lady in the onsite shop was lovely.... Bar staff would take ages to serve, would rather chat amongst themself. .. We were all inclusive which means rooms cleaned twice a week not really good enough no clean towels asked at reception and after a lot of no sorry we eventually got a bath towel ... Drinks are 1 every 10 minutes so when it was 30 degrees it was one bottle of 330ml water then wait well I'm sorry just not good enough... Food well it was either cold and that was when they brought it first out ... One day there was a 15 minute wait for food and when asked the waitress she went angry in Spanish staff are very rude ... If you liked dried up cold food then yeah go here... Most nights we ended up eating out... The entertainment was poor karaoke at night consisting of young girls probably about 8-10 yrs signing let it go from frozen over n over agian...no atmosphere in hotel whatsoever ... Location wasn't an issue for myself and we hired scooters for the older ones in our party ... Sorry I would not return here I feel they should get rid of all inclusive as they clearly don't understand the concept More

My Husband and I spent 12 days at the Terralta Apartamentos in Benidorm. The first apartment we where given was on the ground floor, it was lovely and clean- however it faced a brick wall. As a result for most of the day the balcony had no sun. The day after arrival I requested an apartment transfer which we got 4 days after checking in. The apartment we transferred to was on the ground floor and faced the adult pool area. The balcony got plenty of sunshine and very little noise. The Staff where excellent and the English Lady in the complex supermarket lovely.
Every Wednesday behind the complex through the wood area there is a great market to buy fruits and vegetables as well as gifts and nick knacks and clothes and shoes.
There is a bus service outside the complex which is every 2 hours which goes to the beach and supermarkets in the town area. At the bottom of the hill you can get the bus 2 to Carrefour ( which stops outside a Mercado- a supermarket for 1.50 euro one way) here you can buy lovely fish, meat, cheap wine and sprits, food at a reasonable price.
At the beach by the Children's play we took a tour bus which goes round Benidorm - you can hop on and of. We went during the day time and then returned to do the tour at night - for one price as the bus ticket is valid for 24 hours.
Yes there is a short cut to avoid the step hill- on checking in ask for a map of the area from reception. The route is behind the hotel through the woods(can not use a pram or anything with wheels on this route) this is where the market is held- by walking down the road at the end of the market road - the road leads to the top of another road which you walk down and this leads to the town area or the beach.
The beach is a good 20mins walk from the hotel. In the hotel they have leaflets - one of them is advertising mobility scooters ranging from Â£40 for 7 days and they will deliver and collect to the hotel ( a bit less for 3 days)
The family pool area caters for families and looked like fun. We where self catering - however on our last day before getting our return transfer coach I paid Â£12 each for a buffet lunch to include all drinks - self service. The food was excellent quality and I enjoyed it. As it was not busy we sat and ate over a 2 hour period and the restaurant staff where friendly and helpful. Like the Cleaners very hard working. We had no problems with the beds and had a good night sleep
We plan on returning again soon.More
Never come back
first impression when we arrived - want to turn back and go home. first thing what reception ask you is deposit of 30Â£ per person( we could not find any information about this). 20Â£ per device for WIFI for one week. All inclusive food was disgusting, most of the time food was cold. i think most popular meal was ready made food like chicken nuggets, chips, and ham and cheese who came straight from shop. Desserts? yes - watermelon, apple, pear, orange. all the cakes coming straight from the fridge, and it is fell like you eating different taste cake from water. do not go for all inclusive.More
