Historical Traveler Reviews Terralta Apartamentos Turisticos 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!!!
Mundomar/aqualandia are a must!
we went terralta 2nd june till 16th june 04.
2 adults 2 kids and an infant. we found these appartments fantastic we had everything we needed,in our appartment was a decent sized tv with internet access,phone,microwave hairdryer.down stairs was a launderrette this was just what we needed with 3 young children 1-5 years.the rep simon(airtours was very helpful) the staff on reception how they got there jobs i just dont know all they seemed to say was yes.we couldnt get any sense out of them.the manager is a really misrable man when it was england v france he banned the english channels besides sky news and cnn.then sulked cos every one went out that night.the hill every one seems to mention isnt that bad we had 2 prams and had no trouble although late at night we would have a taxi back but i think every one did.we got our free tickets to terralta although we did have to ask for them,im glad they were free as its not as good as its made out too be,universal mediterenea in salou was soo much better.the workers there went very helpful they all seemed to have attitude problems.
mundomar is a must me and the kids loved it,we had our photos taken with the dolphins(book this early to avoid disapiontment),my eldest daughter (5) got picked out of the audience to be pulled in a little boat around the pool by a dolphin,camera's are a must.theres a park and picnic area in there too great if you have young kids.aqualandia was good too although drinks were very expensive in there.the two parks can be done in 1 full day if you go to mundomar early 10am. for food tony romas is a must the meals are great.we didnt order food from the bar at terralta after a few people warned us about it.the entertainment for june was rubish at 8pm everynight theres a disco for kids were theres hardly any kids joining in,the bingo is 5 euros,theres the parrot show twice a week we only stayed in once or twice it was really boring at night there nobody really spoke to anyone or mixed and made freinds(were the young freindly type).it was mostly young couples with kids just like us.
the pool was great they have a life gaurd there too.
i would go back to terralta again as the rooms are spaciouse clean and modern but the nightly entertainment is just a big let down
have a great hioliday if your going there but just
make sure you ask for your free tickets to terra mittica(or you wont get them)
Not that hill again!
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.
its about a 5 min walk down to old town and 45 min to new town its not to bad a walk we did it everynight but get a taxi home or the hill will kill you especially if you got a pram.taxi about 7 euros to new town, don't miss phil the clown and the hypnotist at pancho's bar not much other entertainment if you've got young kids. doesn't start until 9pm and all kids entertainment is over by 12pm when they ask you to leave as sticky vicky and the strippers start then go see her if you can [she's 72] hotel evening entertainment was crap bingo for about 2 hours at 5 euros a turn! terra mitica was good day out for all but don't take any food or drinks as they search your bags on entrance and confiscate it. we wouldn't go back to benidorm until kids are a lot older and definately not to terralta apartments as there wasn't enough atmosphere there and not central enough.
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.

It has been a great week for recharging the batteries, relaxing and filling our tummies with really healthy food.

After that we drove back down through the hills and into Benidorm. It was quite busy compared to most other places since its winter and we walked around the shops there. I've heard its mostly a big party town and there were lots of bars and restaurants there but I think it was too early for all that to start. We got some more hot chocolate and sat out on the street for a while and watched people wandering ...
