Friendly staff, clean apartments but couldnt get into apartment for hours.
My husband myself and teenage son stayed there for a week. Upstairs apartment was clean, decor fine, had everything we needed. Overlooked the childrens pool and entertainment area so was a bit noisy but not too bad. Good choice of food, we preferred the restaurant near reception as the Thematico sometimes had flies buzzing around and landing on food. But both served good food. If you have an early flight like we did take suncream and swim stuff etc in hand luggage so you can use the pools without having to rummage around in cases while youre waiting for a vacant apartment. We had to wait about 4 hours to get into ours. Seemed like we were hanging round for ages. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Aqua Centre water park just along the road was great. Also the waffles and ice cream from the kiosk beside Jimmy Hills were delicious.More
Overall pretty good , just a few negatives
I will start with the negatives first, being charged 32 euro for a safe after paying £2000 for a holiday .. why do they do that .. 300 plus apartments x 32 euro ....a safe would of only cost 32 euro to make when it was originally installed streaky bacon and horrible sausages for breakfast ..and lack of the shade around the pool ..... The head entertainer was obsessed with Kamasutra song and IT FELT WEIRD watching young children aged 3 to 12 doing the moves to the Kamasutra song , every night and day , really !!! Evening entertainment was ok to good depending on the act , they all tried their best , just a bit cramped and not much space to sit down All inclusive was average / ok / good .. as you would expect .. i found the apartments nice and clean .. just practice with the air con . so you get a nice ambient temperature when you sleep , not to hot or to cold ! as it is very warm in july /august with 25c at night time ... the cleaners do a fantastic job , all the staff work hard . 3 swimming pools were very good . deepest pool was upto 1.8 metres , next pool was upto 1.40 metres , and the kids splash park just 30cm , excellent splash park ,only let down by parents who didnt use proper swimming nappies , as the pool was regularly closed due to accidents and taped off like a crime scene , SHAME on those parents .. i think Binimar should immediately invest in extra parasols for all the swimming pool areas .. the pools are enclosed by the apartments , so there is not much of a breeze and it gets very hot and unbearable .. if you dont get a good spot at 8 am in the morning you will suffer during the rest of the day ! A nice touch by the hotel .Is an area at the far side of the hotel , where you can safely store your luggage cases and get a shower if you have an evening flight . evening flights leave at the back of the hotel , be warned !!! Overall i am impressed with Binimar and would give it 4 out of 5 if the few minor issues were improved ... Anyone going to Binimar should be happy with their apartment , impressed by the pools , dissappointed by the lack of shade , charging for safes and poor wifi !Enjoy !!!More

We stayed here 1st week in July as a family, choosing here because of the family friendly reviews and quick flight from the UK. We were not disappointed with the hotel it was clean and tidy, bigger than expected and worth the money we spent. The apartment was spacious, good air con, and well equipped with what you should need. 3 pools to choose from which were all clean and enjoyed by us, my son especially loved the kids pool with the water slides. We didn't have any issues with sunbeds, always some spare when we went to the pool. Not much of a beach at the resort, more of a cove, so if you're a beach lover probably not ideal. The resort is quite small with a few shops, restaurants, bars. We were all inclusive but did go out for 2 meals in the resort which were lovely. Also visited the water park- Aqua Center which is a 10 minute walk from the hotel, fab day there. Also ventured out to Cituadella lots of nice shops there. Food and drink- I don't know what people are moaning about! There is literally everything you could want! Breakfast was vast with everything going and was all lovely. Lunch and dinner always plenty to choose from, themed nights were good and we were always well fed. Never got ill, people were saying when we were there that the burgers were raw- they were hamburgers (literally) so were meant to be pink! We did prefer the Tematico restaurant than the main buffet simply because it was a bit more spacious, main restaurant felt a bit crammed in if I'm honest. Drinks were plentiful, and good measures, couldn't complain. Ice cream isn't included but that wasn't a big deal, there is a supermarket on the complex which is reasonably priced. Children- this hotel is really geared up for families and we loved that. There was a play area which was fab and little things like kids plastic plates, cups and cutlery in the restaurants and a children's section at the buffet. The staff were always lovely to the children and very friendly. Lifeguards are at the pool and they were ensuring children were being supervised by their parents. Animation team worked hard to keep the kids entertained and there is a kids club also. Evening entertainment was geared up for the children well then there was bingo and a show most nights, usual holiday entertainment really, nothing special. So basically if you have young children and want a nice cheap break away this place is ideal. If you are a couple with no children the you should probably avoid. All in all a great family holiday.More

Brilliant for kids
Would recommend to anyone taking kids on holiday, prob would be somewhere to avoid if you are not because the whole place is so family orientated. We took a 4 year old and she had a great time, and with so much for the little one to do we didn't have to work hard and find things to keep her entertained. The 3 pools were all great, one large pool. a splash pool for kids and a smaller pool, the sunbeds were chained up and opened at different times each day, sometimes when they were left until after 9 there were a few rows over them, other mornings they were all out at 8am! Room was ok, air con was needed, although cleaned only 3 times in a week which I found odd not that it really stopped us enjoying the holiday, the view from our room balcony however was outstanding (see picture). Food was ok, some bits were hit and miss in both the buffet and the Tematico restaurants, other things were really nice. The restaurant did themed nights, and the Mexican evening was particularly good. The best thing about this place is the Animacion team. My daughter did loads of activities with them including t-shirt painting, loads of games such as limbo, "coca cola / fanta" and musical chairs, and of course the mini disco every day. Whenever my daughter saw Sara or Laine she ran up to them and high fived and they weren't the only kids doing that, they were literally adored by an army of young children which tells you the job they are doing. The local beach is more of a cove, and actual beaches seem a long way away. All in all we had a good time and for the price we paid we can have no complaints.More
Would not return.
We booked this as a last minute cheap holiday, so I guess you get what you pay for. However, this is the first holiday I've been on where I've been more than happy to come back home. On our first night we witnessed a man hitting his wife several times (in front of their two young children), which we stepped in with and it turned nasty very quick. The police arrived and the staff witnessed how aggressive the man was towards us when we were explaining what we saw, yet he was allowed to stay in the hotel for the next 4-5 days. His wife chose not to press charges, but I still believe he should have been kicked out for this behaviour for everyone's safety. I was really unimpressed with how the staff dealt with this - however, our TUI rep was brilliant and completely on our side the whole time. The food was no good at all. On the odd day you'd get something decent put out, but I ended up eating out most of the holiday to avoid it, which made the holiday more expensive than I'd wanted. The drinks were awful, cocktails didn't seem to have any alcohol in, the beer upset our stomachs and the wine tasted like watery vinegar. They turned the self service drinks machines off all the time which was very frustrating... I couldn't have any coffee with dinner and most of the soda machines were turned off when we were there. The life guards are on a constant power trip, and appear to go around looking for people to tell off. They seem to have a lot of silly rules that get old very quick. It's almost like they enjoy saying no to people. I found a lot of the staff had very little patience, but I get the impression this is due to the people they have to deal with, as honestly I was shocked at how little manners the guests had there. I will say though, that the apartments were really nice and the layout is like a little village. First impressions were very good, it just unfortunately went downhill from there. Rooms were clean. I'd advise self catering here, as just round the corner you have the 'square' which has lots of bars and restaurants at really good prices. Just over the road there is a restaurant that does a really cheap breakfast so save your money up and eat/drink out.More
