... water lucky enough ! We had a great lunch and than attacked the gorgeous swimming pool of this beautiful house they had rented from an old friend. After a good swim M & N went for a little siesta of an hour while we stayed around the pool chilling. When they came back it was time for the famous "aperó" and we had fun slowly preparing while eating and drinking more food for dinner. Sitting at the ...
... After that we found a nice beachfront restaurant to have lunch which included the longest ice cream bar i'd ever seen, featuring very possibly variety including things like Red Bull. We then caught a cab back to the villa and spent the rest of the day back by the pool, followed by a lovely bbq orchestrated by Duncan's friend ...
... spanish waiter who may also have owned the place. Once all seated and orders taken, the amusement began, cue some early birthday ribbing for Duncan who was very sensitive about it being his 50th birthday later in the week. Next up, the waiter started picking on people, getting a little too friendly with myself and Tash's brother (Josh) trying to stop me putting my arm around her and trying to put it ...
... there after by his friends, a couple from Australia, Paul, known as Geezer and his wife Renee. We then walked down to where our slightly irate spanish bus driver was waiting. The journey to our villa in the 'nearby' town of Javea took about 45mins and we arrived to be warmly greeted by another couple, Duncan (Tash's dad)'s friends, Bobby and Sally. All in all, not too rough a journey but bed was very well received that ...
... up and joined four English tourists and our Spanish guide in an inflatable dinghy. The guide seemed to want to either give us an adventure ride or scare the pants of us by zooming along until we were seemingly about to crash into the rocks ahead and brake at the last minute. We got used to it after a while. We went to three different spots. The first was a cave which was rather dark and cold but pretty cool to explored. My snorkelling mask wasn´t really working ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Terralta Apartments Benidorm
Sun sea and sangria
My husband and I are just back from the Terralta Apartments (25/08/04) and must say we were very impressed. Ok, it is at the top of a hill which is quite a hike (not that we wever climbed it as taxi from Poniente is less than 5 euros)
The apartment was lovely, and it overlooked the pool.
The food in the "restaurant" was reasonably priced and a good helping. Ok it is not fancy or laced with trimmings that you don't eat, but good filling food with good service. My husband highly recommends the peppered steak, it is the best he has had in ages.
The staff are friendly and make you welcome,and it is always spotlessly clean.
We would recommend these apartments to anyone. Benidorm itself is not exactly my cup of tea but Terralta certainly was.
got back from benidorm on the 7th of august,was there for 2 weeks and thought it was brilliant.plenty for the kids to do,arcades,pool tables,park. good enternainment for the kids through the day aswell as night.karaoke,discos,games. ther were plenty of games for adults too involving jugs of sangria!
nice appartments,very clean and the staff were nice too. only bad thing is the huge hill to get to terralta!
would reccomend to anyone,great place for the kids! cant wait to go back next year!
Loved the Terralta
When I stayed at the Terralta apartments... it was great because all the reps were nice and friendly.
Every night when we were going out we strolled down the BIG STEEP HILL. When we were coming home we had to walk up the BIG STEEP HILL.
It was great we loved it so much were going again this year 14 August 2004. Ican't wait.
great time had, i went on my own and met some nice people, even fell for a welsh guy but has decided he no longer wants to contact me!!! Great holiday.
Pool was great and atmosphere sound, evening entertainment was ok, beers too dear in bar so go to shop and stock the fridge up!!!
just returned from terralta apts. on 1st june 2004 and won't be returning. it was a lovely hotel but too far out. rooms were great but cleaners round to often [kept disturbing us] don't buy any tickets off your rep [he caught us for about 40 euros] just go to mundomar and the waterpark and pay on entrance. once in one you can buy discount tickets for the other and your rep won't tell you this.
brilliant, is all i can say. the weather was superb although we did have one bay day but that didn't matter as the hotel has in indoor swimming pool, that is open from october to april. Plenty of stuff for people my age to do (i'm 15). although it is situated on ahil, it is not very steep and only takes five mins to walk down it and you are in to the main town. you are about a ten minute walk away from the old town.(which is excellent at night,well worth the visit).Beach is only at the end of the hill and is beautiful. i would really recommened it for families and for couples plenty to do all round.rooms are brillant.
just got back from terralta yesterday. hotel really clean, staff friendly and helpful. entertainment very poor does not really take off until may. pools are brilliant. only problems are hotel on very high hill, long walk down and back up again. terramitica very quiet know shows on yet and water parks closed until may. mundomar was excellant for dolphin show. first edition brochure said free terramittica tickets so we booked on that brochure, but they changed their mind in 2nd edition to read may-oct and would`nt honour it. also brochure said 3 euros for kids club they wanted 20euros up front for week for each child. going places in cardiff said club for 2 1/2 year old , but they would`nt take under 3yrs. beds are rock hard and pillows (great if you got bad back from walking up hill) i got high b/pressure which went up, no good for people with heart problems. taxis hard to get maybe because out of season. near beach sign for mcdonalds and lidls is pointing out to sea. take no notice is back the other way towards mountains taxi costs 9 euros there and about 8-9 coming back.all in all a very good place, very clean, plenty of space. should be excellant when season in full swing.weather at moment is scorching. have good time if anyones going. ps take aquasub trip to peacock island its amazing.
these apartments are very clean+ well looked after a bit of a walk to town but a taxi is only 2.50euro the bar is good food good the entertainment when we were there in april2004 was very poor the rooms are kept to the highest level + all staff very helpfull not much for kids though so keeping them happy could be a problem but overall a great place to go if you want to relax not for the teenagers
Brill, September 2003
Situated in the Old Town of Benidorm on a hill. Takes about five/ten minutes to walk to the beach, but a pleasant walk. A nice walk back during the evening, but slighty hard going in the day due to the heat.
All the staff are pleasant and friendly. The food in the restauarant is lovely, but can get busy during lunch time, hence food taking longer but it didn't bother me. There is a small childrens play area situated by the pool, don't have children so can't rate it, but it looked fun!!.
Pool a decent size and they have a whirlpool. Plenty of sunbeds when we went no matter what time of day you go.
