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.

10 days a/i
We have just returned from 10 days at the terralta. 2 adults and our son who is 7. The pool is fantastic. The sunbed situation was fine too. Not having to get up at 7 am to put towels on. We was going down at about 9.45am and got 1 no problem. Aqua gym went down well. That was fun The food wasn't bad. Seems like they have a weekly menu as 2nd week it all repeated what we had the 1st week. Indian. Chinese. Donner kebabs. Fish & chips Just a couple to mention. Snack bar open til 11.30pm with salad burgers hotdogs chicken nuggets Ice cream and slush puppies not in a/i â¬30 pp deposit required on arrival which is refunded on check out Adult games on a night were quite funny. All staff work long hours. All friendly and the big boss too Queues on a night was a bit of a pain at times Towels were only changed every 3 days. This is not enough This "steep" hill is not bad at all. It's just quite long but no way steep. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would returnMore

Great for S/C poor for All Inclusive
This apart/ hotel is great if you want a self catering option but I have to say that for all inclusive the food was really quite poor. The place itself is very clean and the rooms are very spacious with a kichenette having fridge, cooker, kettle an microwave. The staff work tirelessly and I agree with others that they do need to employ more as the queues for drinks particularly on the evenings did get tiring to say the least. If you do enjoy staying for evening entertainment I'm afraid you will have a bit of a shock! We decided after the first night to venture out as there are numerous places to see shows etc. What I would also point out is that you need to have 60 euros upon arrival as they demand this as a security deposit- of course this is reimbursed if you haven't damaged anything when you leave but it can come as a bit of a surprise. This was th first year that the all inclusive option was available so maybe next year it will improve- it would be a shame if this ruined the reputation of what appears to be a very good option for self catering.More

Lovely place but take some ear plugs!!
This was our 2nd stay at the terralta first stay was 2 years ago but in may. All I can say is what a change within them 2 years we stayed s/c as we like to be out and about! We stayed in room 1210 which faced the back of the hotel, I had at least 1 nights good sleep due to dogs barking all night long. Ive got bags on my bags on my eyes due to the noise of them dogs!! We had to leave the tv on all night to drownd out the noise of the yapping!! Dont get me wrong its a lovely hotel with a great pool (although someone pooped in it on our second last day!!). We had lunch once and it was nice enough. All the staff were really friendly and never had any problems with any off them. Does get a bit noisy at night with kids running up and down corridors. This didnt seem to happen before the place turned into a/i.Room was cleaned twice in 1 week and the cleaners work really hard. We went to the old/new town most nights reception will phone a taxi for you. Happy hour is 3-5 in the afternoon bogof on beer etc. I dont think i would return here if I came back to benidorm! But if your looking for a nice well equipped low rise apartment go for this one but be prepared for little sleep if your put in a room at the back!More
One of the best S/C holidays ever. Just got back on Saturday after an 11 night stay and struggling to find fault with the hotel. Everywhere spotlessly clean, rooms perfect for a family of 4, the pool was amazing both for the adults and my 7 year old daughter in fact one of the best pools we've ever used. The hotel is on a hill but we managed to walk down and up it 10 nights out of the 11 - we did treat ourselves to a taxi on the last night. Location was perfect, the Old Town was full of bars and restaurants and we enjoyed some lovely Tapas in several of the bars. The transfer times from the Airport was only 35 mins another selling point for the location of the hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, I fully recommendMore
