TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Era Park Apartments Benidorm
I have recently returned from a weeks stay in Benidorm, at the La Era Park.
I will say at the start of this review that when the holiday was booked it was on a budget and trip advisor was consulted to find the best rated hotel within the budget for this trip.
The transfer to the airport was quite painless; the coach took us to the first drop off point and then transferred us to a mini bus as the road to La Era Park is on a small road with parking along the side and an extremely tight turn at the top making it more or less impossible for access by coach.
That being said the location of the hotel couldn’t be better with the beach, Old Town, and New Town very accessible by foot.
Check in at the hotel was quick and easy. Having read reviews I was expecting to have to pay a deposit for the room and was pleasantly surprised when I found out that this wasn’t required. When I booked the hotel I requested a room on the upper floors, and was advised that the hotel was fully booked and Sunday is the main changeover day and was offered the choice of a room on either the fifth or seventh floors.
For the money I paid, I was very impressed by the size of the room, which consisted of a well equipped kitchen, bathroom, a lounge area with a double sofa bed and a bedroom with two single beds. Both the lounge and the bedroom lead out to a huge balcony providing good views over Benidorm and out to sea. Although the rooms were clean the bathroom was showing signs of its ageing and would benefit from being updated.
The only downside about the hotel is the fact that the hotel has very thin walls. I know that the hotel can’t be responsible for the guest to whom they rent rooms to, but I was kept awake at night due to our noisy neighbours. They had no volume control and when they were having conversation it felt like I was in the room with them! At all times of the day and night you could hear conversations, screaming, music and other things that don’t need to be mentioned. The girls were also standing out on their balcony having arguments with other guests about the noise.
I had cause to complain to reception on a number of occasions, where phone calls were made and they were asked to keep the noise down. Things quietened down for about 20 minutes or so and then they were back at it.
After a night of only 1 hours sleep, and being quite annoyed at the reception, I was offered a change of room and was put up on the top floor. I so wish I had of complained sooner!
This room had been updated recently and had a lot nicer bathroom. The views from the balcony were also amazing, with clear views over the top of all other buildings around you.
The hotel is in a great location with good value for money rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful apart from the guy behind the bar. When I asked him how to get to the bus stop he put his hand out as if he was expecting me to give him money, when I refused he couldn’t speak any English!!!
I would return to this hotel again, but would insist on a room at the top.

... slogging the road. The lovely Mexican girls with smiley faces in the streaming rain. Tiger the Irish lad with his non stop chatter made the kilometres fly by. Sheila with her strength and stupidity breaking the pain barrier. Jimmy for coping so well with us two and, keeping her on her feet, carrying the bulk of our belongings and keeping me warm and dry. I hope the wonderful memories of this trip will keep us at home for the near future, but knowing those two I doubt ...
... Benidorm? Simply because neither of us have ever been and we’ve heard of so many people going.
Was it our grandparents/older relatives that went maybe?? Oh we were very young and got run over by tandem disability scooters on numerous occasions.
To be fair, we had a lovely walk along the promenade and around town (got a bit lost!!), then back to the campsite (about 7 miles). We ate on the promenade ...
Soon after lunch, we went for a drive to Benidorm. It was the other city that wasn't to far away where we are staying. It only took 40 minutes to get to Benidorm. I was surprised that there was a lot more high rise apartments in Benidorm. We parked the car close to the beach and walked to the beach. It was packed. And nearly all the people I saw were older than 70years old. ...
We went to the long sandy beach I had spotted yesterday from the tram. When we were getting ready at home, I looked at the map. It looked really simple, but it turned to not too easy. I like sandy beaches more than the rocky ones. I think it is more fun playing in the sand rather than carefully walking on the small rocks not to fall. There was a tram track right along beach. I through that it was really cool ...
... It took about one hour, then we finally made it to Alicante. we walked out of the stations and then we were next to a large road. It was not very busy. I like the city centre when it was not too busy. We walked down to the port. There was so many very expensive speed boats. We also saw a pirate ship but we didn't go in. We were heading to a museum that was along the sea side. It was a museum about yacht racing. Unfortunately, it was closed. I had ...
