On arrival at Alicante airport the queue for the pre-booked coaches desk was very long, so long infact we were too late to pick our keys up at the Fincas Arena offices even though we were only several minutes late! So nowhere to go for 3 hours in a blistering sun (thanks to the Madiera Hotel for letting us store our cases in their baggage room). After the 3 hour siesta the doors finally opened and we recieved our keys (2 door keys, a safe key and a tv remote, the latter two we had to ask for) we were then asked for a 60euro deposit.
Appartment:
We got a taxi back to the Gemelos 26 and a single key opened 2 security gates and the front door of our appartment on the 17th floor (we had requested a high, corner apt. with an open balcony but got a middle one with a closed balcony!) the appartment was beautiful and the balcony view literally breathtaking. After deciphering the air-conditioning controls we soon had a lovely cool atmosphere to unpack and refresh ourselves.
As the view was outstanding we were disappointed that the windows were very dirty so I cleaned a semi-circle on two of the windows (anymore would be very dangerous) so we could enjoy the view without sliding the windows open. The furniture and decor were good and the beds comfortable with memory foam mattresses. The washing machine was great and must have been the quietest I have ever heard. The cooker was trial and error (no instructions) but we soon had it going when we needed it. The toaster didn't work but on reporting this it was soon replaced by a new one.
Gemelos 26, tower 1:
The whole building was spotless and with 6 lifts so you only waited seconds for one to arrive. The handyman/gardener has an office/room at the bottom and was helpful for basic inquiries. Across the road is a supermarket, a large bar (Uncle Ped's) an off licence/news agent, all you really need!!!
Pool:
The pool is accurately described as a lake pool, it is massive, the biggest pool I have ever seen in any block of appartments or any hotel. It also has an enclosed pool. You can take a folding chair and large towel to sunbathe etc. but no inflatables, picnics or carry-outs are allowed and there's a wee man who sits there to enforce this at the behest of the Gemelos 'community', the people who actually live in the towers.
A word about the noise factor. There are hotels nearby (Riviera, Ambassador Playa, Rosamar & Flash) that have music for their guests in the afternoon and at night so be prepared to be serenaded at various times by the good, the bad and the tone deaf! All live outside music stops at 12.00 midnight.
Where the Gemelos 26 is situated, we found ideal but others mightn't. It is close to Morgan(s) Tavern, Stardust & Talk of the Town and lots of eateries and shops so for us location was good although the outside music did at times get tedious but hey, it's Benidorm!
It is also a nice walk to both the indoor and outdoor markets and the sea and promenade is a short stroll away (5-10mins).
Bad:
The key pick up situation is not ideal and if this was resolved (staggered siesta times for the Fincas Arena office!) the Gemelos 26 would get full marks!

First time here and booked through a company that I have never used before Costablanca-appartments.com. We were met with the keys so no searching all over Benidorm for them, The apartments are set in their own large gardens with a large freeform pool an inside pool and a play area, The apartment was spacious and clean with everything that you need for your stay.

In the new town area of benidorm, seconds from riviera, ambassador and calypso.

Great size apartment, bedroom with twin beds, lounge with a sofa bed for two. large enclosed balcony. Bathroom kitchen with full oven and utility room.

Lovely grounds, the indoor pool was not heated for some reason at the recent half term.

Overall, amazing apartments, only disadvantage is key pickup at madero centro (out of hours) or fincas arena both about 10 mins walk (if you know benidorm) from the apartments .

Hi

My partner and i stayed here for 2 weeks in June and we loved the apartments. We booked through Zand Properties and were allocated a corner room on the 28th floor. We picked up our keys from the office which is just situated at the back of the apartments so a nice easy start!

Got to our room and we were very pleasantly surprised. It was very modern and very nice, only one bad point is that the room was very dusty, but this didnt spoil it at all! The apartment was big and spacious, had a washer and a dryer. The balcony was enclosed and had a sofa bed and wardrobes in there and a dining table and chairs, so you can imagine the size of it!

Amazing views from the balcony! Didnt hear no noise from anywhere and the room had very secure locks on the door! The bathroom didnt have a bath but had a very powerful power shower which shot water from every angle you could think of! Bedroom was ok size with decent bedroom furntiture.

Living room was very spacious and well fitted out with nice furniture and flat screen TV.

My only gripe was that the agent only gave us one key between the two of us which was a bit awkward at times!

The pool area was lovely and very quiet and peaceful. There were never many people round the pool and the pool was very big and was a very pleasant swim!

There is a supermarket straight outside and Uncle Peds for a cheap drink and for the best coffee!

All in all very pleased with our stay here and will definitely be going back to Gemelos 26 again!
