My friends and I have just returned from a week at Villa Marina and we absolutely loved it.The photos do not do the apartment justice.We were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was.The views off the verandah are absolutely amazing.We never tired of looking at them and couldn,t believe how lucky we were.The two double bedrooms share the same amazing view.The twin room room looks into the garage but you only sleep there.We spent most of the time on the balcony.The apartment has two lovely bathrooms and also a downstairs wc which comes in very handy.The kitchen was nice and bright and had everything you needed.Overall the apartment was spotless and Paul and Martin who take care of the apartment were both lovely.Paul picked us up from the airport and took us back.It was so much easier and cheaper than getting the bus or a taxi and much less hassle.Before we left England we gave Paul a shopping list and it was in the fridge when we arrived which was great (thanks Paul).
The apartment was up a hill but it was nice being away from the hustle and bustle and it was also very quiet.It,s easier taking the lift to the 13th floor and turning left and going out that gate rather than the one on the 9th where the apartment is.Much quicker!!At the bottom of the hill the supermarkets,bars and the beach start.You get much more choice and variety at the bigger supermarkets further into town.We always stopped for a drink at Vincent,s at the bottom of the hill for a drink every time we walked down.Happy hour was good and also the food was very nice.We always got a taxi back up which cost between 4 & 7 Euros.Well worth the money!!!!There,s also a bus every 20 minutes but it was easy enough to walk down.
The verandah is huge and the plunge pool is a godsend when your hot off sunbathing.We put about a foot of water in it & emptied it every day to get rid of the beasties.The chairs are really comfy(the pads are in the cupboard under the stairs).The only thing that,s missing from this apartment is sunbeds.It,s nice to lie down when your sunbathing.There are plenty of sunbeds by the communal pool which is also lovely and never busy.
After seeing some of the apartments and hotels in the centre we were pleased we had chosen this apartment.I will be visiting Benidorm again and will be staying here.
Thanks again to Paul & Martin.If you get the chance go and visit them at their drag act.We had a really good night.
Can,t wait to go back!!
