“More like a hostal then a hotel”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

This hotel is very very basic, we booked a apartment for 4 adults but no way was it big enough for 4. we then had to pay for an extra apartment, the air conditioning did not work so we had to keep the windows open and the noise was pretty bad from cars motor bikes and people going up and down the road until 7 am in the morning. would not recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: One room only big enough for 2 adults

This accommodation was not 3 star I would rate this as 1 star. No balcony, rooms were extremely dirty and not suitable for 4 persons - one bed was a mattress on the floor, bed were not made up and sheets were not changed at all! no toilet roll!! No facilities to make tea/coffee all utensils were extremely dirty. Only one towel per person per week! Fabulous beach/shops/restaurants were close by and great night life at 24 hour square. Rooms had to be cleaned prior to us leaving and we had to take our own rubbish to bins out the back.

Would not rate this accommodation as 3 star more like a hostel. No balcony, roomes dirtly, had to make up own beds, towels changed once per week, had to pay 2 euros for dirtly sunbeds at the pool and had to buy own toilet rolls. If Ihad been travelling with my family I would have changed accommodation.

On the plus side close to the beach, shops and Square so we did not have to spend time in the apartments.

My Husband and I had a short 4 day break at this Hotel/Apartments and in our opinion anyone complaining about this place have never been to apartments before!!!!!
The room was excellent more than big enough for 2 of us. Very impressed with the fact that we had a seperate bedroom from sitting room. We had everything you could need and very friendly and helpful staff. When we arrived our window didnt lock we told reception went to pick up some shopping and when we got back it was fixed and also the extra pillow cases we asked for were not only there but had also been put on the pillows. We will definitely be back here to stay.

Exactly as we thought, clean - enough, good pool area and close to everything we needed........

Mad axx irish bar next door was spot on for food and a good start to the night! Then it was just a small walk down the road for the 24 hour square and the marina!

Went to Bena for a few days at the end of the month. Great location if you're looking for a night out on the 24 hour square and within stumbling distance..
Also good distance from beach. Room is nothing fancy but it depends what you're after. There were four of us altogether and there was plenty of room.

Would definitely go there again. Staff are nice and good to bump into your fellow hotellers when you're out ;)
