Stayed in the Albir gardens 23/09/13 to 05/10/13. Originally booked this for myself and the Mrs then my son, his fiancée and our grandson booked the same but only staying for a week. We have been to Benidorm several times in recent years and thought by booking the "gardens" we would avoid the high rise sun blocking hotels associated with central Benidorm, to this end the plan worked as this complex ticked all the boxes as far as the pool and sun area went. Unfortunately a lot of the other hotel features fell well short of this standard although I believe the time of year that we visited played a big part in this, basically to sum up what was disappointing in not too many words this hotel's season seems to end a few days before the end of September. The first few days we spent there weren't too bad as there was an entertainment team in place, the bar was stocked and food was fairly decent, pool bar and snack bar however we're already closed for the season on arrival. Within a few days of arrival however the entertainment team disappeared to be replaced with poor local acts, the bar continually were apologising for running out of stock and the food standards gradually dropped as the chefs obviously cleared out the freezers for the end of season. My honest opinion though would be that these faults would not come into play in high season, june, july & august, surely though people holidaying later in the season deserve the same standards as those who travel in peak times, take note Albir Garden Resort, All in all this was a pity as this had the potential of being a great holiday, decent rooms, very clean, friendly staff, beautiful pools and sun areas.
Not much to do in Albir and bus to Benidorm took a full 30minutes and involved upwards on 20 stops on the way. There's a fantastic british health centre in Albir which we made use of as the wee grandson took ear infections, very hands on, friendly and not overly expensive. Shingle beach picturesque and also clean. Overall pretty average holiday which I reckon would have been much better if we'd gone earlier in the year. I would recommend that you avoid it unless you are going in peak season.
