“Perfect for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013

Just returned from a week staying here. Was slightly worried having read the reviews but this hotel was what I hoped. Ok, it's not luxurious, but look at what you are paying. The apartments are clean and functional and the pool is excellent. I was on a lads holiday so wondered if it was going to be too far a walk into the nightlife,but it was perfect and very quiet. Value for money without doubt.

Stayed June 2013, travelled with friends

have stayed at these apartments before usually pay deposit for room with euros but never had enough so had to give my card details was a bit worried about doing this but had to,we handed in the keys on the last day and was told the deposit will be put back into our bank, after we had been home a week it still was not in our bank we were worried emailed the hotel and this was sorted straight away i think it could of been because it ran into a bank holiday, these apartments are residential as well so you need to respect this, we had no problems and could not fault this place very big apartments you have to pay for the tv, but everything for self catering even a washing machine. These apartments are oppisite cheap and cheerfulls we arrived late and had to pick our key up at a different hotel left the women and cases in cheep & cheerfuls went across the road to the hotel and there was a notice in the window to tell us were to get the keys from just walk down the road to the madiria hotel to pick up keys dont forget your passport just to show, the next day go to the office below to book in, the road you go down is the side street not the main road to get the keys its at the bottom of the street on the right easy when you know how, just give your name and show your passport

Room Tip: higher floor better view

There is so much to say so I'll keep it brief. DO NOT STAY HERE EVER!!!!!! First of all when we arrived no one told us the reception (which is actually an office) would be closed or even what to do in the event of it being closed. After trying to ring the world and his wife with no joy we stumbled across a sheet of paper taped to the office window telling us to pick up the keys from another hotel some 1/4 mile down the road (downhill there,uphill back with suitcases).
Now to the apartment ...First thing to hit us was how filthy it was we went to make a drink only to find the milk jug had what can only be described as pubic hair inside and one of the cups still had the remains of something unknown but fungal. The bathroom looks out onto the communal landing and upon getting out of the shower I was greeted by a man at the window . To paint a picture of what this place is like you'd have to imagine a tower block in any one of the UK's many inner cities. Cleaning or housekeeping is non existent for the whole week they never cleaned the apartment in fact all they did once was drop off some more towels. If you want to use the television you have to pay what they call a deposit of 10 Euros but you dont get it back

Room Tip: Get a room in a diiferent apartment / hotel

Terrible apartments, would never stay again. Had to pick up keys from hotel some 1/4 mile down road dragging suitcases with us. Not good at all if we had been elderly :-( The apartment was grubby, showerhead broke, sink tap water flow very poor and awful smell every so often. Do not stay here!!!! Will go back to Benidorm but will stay somewhere nice next time :-)

Dear client:

First of all, we want to thank you by your comments, we are haappy that you enjoyed at our San Francisco apartments during your holidays.

Our staff always try our guest have a nice time in our apartments.

Since 2010 we have renewed furniture, paint, lights, kitchen and curtains in San Francisco apartments.

Tv is on rental but there are some international channels available, about pool area, we are very sorry but for us is not possible to have sunbeds for clients, because is a common area shared with residents due to is a residential apartment block.

In 2013 we hope to get installed internet service in our apartments (service with extra cost).

See you soon again in Benidorm

The San Frascisco apartments have everything you need to have a comfortable stay in Benidorm. I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which was clean and tidy and it had everything i needed including a washing maching never have i stayed selfcatering and had my own washing machine. It was quiet while we were there and the pool was fine. You are a good 10-15 min walk from the beach and nightlife. The only thing i can say is that we arrived at the week-end and it was a hassle getting the keys from somewhere else. And we never got the choice to use the safes as we seen no staff about. Also there is no airconditioning in the rooms at all and really they would of ben needed.

We stayed at these apartments last week and apart from the pool not being open and general maintenance taking place around the complex these apartments are well worth every penny. We had a spacious 2 bedroom apartment with full facilities including full oven, microwave, fridge freezer, electric toaster and last but not least a washing machine. In all the years I have stayed Self-catering in Benidorm i've never had any of these, usually just a 2 ring cooker and a fridge with tiny freezer compartment.

We had read all the reports about these apartments and wondered what we were letting ourselves in for, shouldn't have worried one little bit.

Excellent location for both Levante and Poniente beaches and for all night life. Very quiet complex and i would thoroughly recommend it. In fact we will be going to Benidorm again in a few months and will deffo be staying here.

Room Tip: Well worth paying the extra to have 2 bedrooms rather than use the lounge area for sleeping.

Dear client Stuey06:

We would like to say thank you for your comments, we are happy to know you enjoyed your holidays at our San Francisco apartments in Benidorm.

We apologize for the problems with the pool, but this summer the building administrator took morre time tha usual to set the pool on duty due to a major breakage of the cleaning water machine, finally they had to buy a new machine and it took more tha one month to be installed.

We are happy to know that you like the apartments.

Take note that since this summer we offer a service of portable air conditioned in the apartments at an extra cost and for 2013 we are trying to get installed a service of internet access in the apartments (with extra cost), we hope it will be available before June 2013.

Fincas Arena staff thanks you for your comments and take note about your words to improve our communication to clients and offer new services.
