As we couldn't get booked into the Benimar where we stayed on last visit to Benidorm, we thought we would try these apartments as they belong to the same company. They are not far from the old town and next to the park. The situation was ideal for us.
The staff that greet you (housekeeper) couldn't be more pleasant and helpful, it is the rooms that are a big disappointment. As has been said before, this is basic accommodation, which we were prepared for, but they badly need to be refurbished. The kitchen cupboards were grubby and in need to be replaced. The oven was the same and fridge was visibly rusty on the outside and ancient. Other furnishings were also shabby and of cheap quality. The best thing about our apartment, (12b) ,was the view, which was fantastic, looking out to sea.
The block was very noisy with people coming and going all hours, giving little regard for others who would like to get some sleep. The usual dragging of furniture around their rooms and clip clopping in heels. The door locks were something else, like I have never seen or heard. Some kind of antiquated bolt system that needed to be turned 3 times, both when entering and securing once inside. The noise of this reverberated throughout the building. It was so loud.
The small pool and surrounding small garden was kept tidy and clean and there were a few of hard plastic sunbeds that you could use. Lovely Mercadona supermarket right next door, very handy.
I really wanted to like these apartments as I loved our room at the Benimar, but alot of money has to be spent at La Caseta to update the rooms so would always choose the Benimar in future. There was virtually no difference in the price we paid for either.
