Maryciel Apartments, Benidorm

The Maryciel Apartments were formally known as the Sunsea II Apartments make a convenient holiday base, right in the heart of the resort centre.

The Maryciel Apartments is ideal for those looking for comfortable well equipped self catering accommodation.

The beach is only 350 yards away and the nearest supermarket just 50 yards from the apartments. This apartment complex is a budget option for holidays in Benidorm.

"Hell!!"

On booking the agent demanded full payment for the apartment when the invoice requested payment some 8 weeks later (alarm bells should have rung!!) Communications with the agent were at best poor, we didn't get the name of the apartments until 48 hours prior to departure with a demand for 150 Euro deposit, we had already paid a £30 insurance to cover any possible breakages, we contacted Villarenters to complain who then contacted the agent which resulted in me receiving an unpleasant email from the agent. Villarenters sent me an email from the agent saying we would not be charged in resort. On arrival we were not met by the key holder as we were assured, we were given a telephone number to contact this was an incomplete number, we telephoned the agent who assured us that the key holder was on his way, 45 mins later we were still waiting tried to phone the agent again - no answer, left a message on answering machine, went to a local bar where the staff were able to advise us of the missing digits it the key holders phone number - 2 hours after arrival we were in! The key holder then demanded 100 Euros deposit, we explained that we were not required to pay a deposit and showed him a copy of the email we had received, we were told to pay or leave, we paid.

Then everything went wrong! To be fair the rooms were clean, the room had no kettle, toaster, iron or cooking utensils, light fittings had no shades, tiles in the bathroom were broken and sharp, sofa cushions were ripped, no plugs for sinks or bath, electric sockets were loose, generally the apartment was in a very poor condition. During our 5 night stay we had seen a resident in the lift having just been beaten by her partner, armed police running up and down the stairs (good job they had torches as the stair well is not lit) A young woman collapsed outside the entrance, a panel in the front door had been smashed dogs barking day and night.

The block has a mixture of residents and holidaymakers. Had we not been in an adult family group I would have been terrified, I would not recommend this property to anyone!>/p>

We got our deposit back but would have found it difficult to cause 100 Euros worth of damage if we had made a massive effort!

"Apartments Are In The Very Heart Of Benidorm"

This will be our third holiday to Benidorm this year. I have read alot of negative comments from people who don't rate the Sunsea at all. When we first went to Benidorm we did not know what to expect and found that the Sunsea II was not at all what we thought it would be.

I think people often go with the thought that it is a first class accommodation but it is not. Its very basic and when you go on holiday you only sleep in the apartment not live in it. We absolutely loved it. We were free to come and go, the rooms cleaned daily and best of all no dress code (I mean who wants to dress smartly to go in and out of a pool, its ridicules).

The apartments are in the very heart of Benidorm and you literally walk a 5 minutes to the beach. You can actually see the sea from your balcony. The shops are on your doorstep and you don't have to travel far to get milk and daily groceries. There are alot of English shops who sell English products. I was amazed when I walked into this shop and could buy pot noodles milk and English bread.

The receptionist in the apartment was called Jean, we became very friendly with and the best thing she recognised us the year after and when we did not go in 2005 she asked my family where we were. Now that is friendly.

We went in June 2003 June 2004 and will be going again on June 26th this year. We could not afford 2005 and 2006 as we saved like mad to go for two weeks this time. I tell you that if it is bad why are a party of 25 of us going!

Soon I think we will have that many to go with us we will have the Sunsea all to ourselves. We found the best place to go for food is the Yorkshire pride boy do you get a meal there. Again very friendly. There are McDonalds everywhere so if you need your burger and fries fix, look no further they are all here also pizza lovers, Pizza Hut is round the corner. I cannot fault Benidorm I love it and would go back every year if I could afford it.

"I Would Like To Tell You About Sunsea II"

I would like to tell you about Sunsea II. It is in the heart of the resort and an ideal location for families of all ages, even the disabled. In the reception area it has a ramp so if you are wheel chair bound you have instant access to lifts to your rooms. There are no steps to apartments and there is even a ramp outside to the pool area.

I found the Sunsea very basic but loved it. Our money and valuables were in a safe so we never felt that we would have to keep an eye on them. The rooms were cleaned daily and bedding changed twice a week.

Around the Sunsea II we were surrounded by pubs shops and restaurants so you did not have to go far to find one. If you want to just laze around the pool you can in peace. It's an ideal and everything is at hand. The beach is 5 minutes away. MacDonald's is about 15 minutes away we found that the best places we went to was the red dog pub buy one get one free, past orange hotel to Panchos to see Phil the clown (who has now sadly passed away. R.i.p Phil) and the hypnotist then down to Star and Garter then to Jumpin Jacks and then round the corner and voila home to Sunsea.

But unfortunately I am today saddened that the Sunsea II is no longer available after booking a year ago. So now all 25 of us have to be relocated to another apartment, Alpha Apartments. We have looked into this and are very excited as it also looks incredible. I cannot wait and even though we are only changing accommodation we feel Benidorm no matter where you sleep the whole place is the best. This is why this is our third holiday to be going on.

I will be back to tell you about Alpha Apartments and with photos.

"Recommend This Holiday And Apartment"

We as a family we go to the Sunsea II every year and absolutely love it. I am disabled and find that the Sunsea is in a location that suits me brilliantly. I have alot of trouble walking and found that the shops are on your doorstep. The supermarket is round the corner pubs are local and the beach is 5 minutes away.

There is also a 24 hour security guard in the apartment so that if you require any assistance they are there ready to help you.

It is a excellent place to just go and chill out at the side the pool. I can't wait to go back I have been looking forward to it and are always counting down the days.

I found that the best places to go was Churchill pub the Red Dog and Panchos for the kids. I loved eating out at the Yorkshire Pride the meals are of an excellent quality.

I recommend this holiday and apartment to anybody, it is the ideal place for families with children and also the disabled.

We have for years taken people with us as we have recommended them to this apartment and each one of them say they will be back next year. And yes they do go back. Avery friendly place with no trouble at all.

"No Problems With The Apartments"

My partner and I went to Benidorm June 2004 for 1 week. We stopped in Sunsea II Apartments even though many people put it down.

I found no problems with the apartments at all. In fact we are going again in June this year for 2 weeks.

The apartments are less than 5 minutes from the beach and is in the centre of the resort. They are basic and all you need whether you want to relax in the sun, take a dip in the pool or go out all night on the lash they are all you need.

We had no problems with the staff and the rooms were cleaned daily. I for one would recommend Benidorm, food and drink are fantastic, Leeds Arms for breakfast (2 mins walk) Yorkshire Pride for meals (3 mins walk) and ANY pub, they are all around and have friendly staff.

Supermarkets are less than 5 mins away (and sell named brand products).

"Less Than 5 Minutes From The Beach"

Me and my fella went to Benidorm in June 2004 for one week. We stopped in Sunsea II Apartments even though many people put it down.

We found no problems with the apartments at all. In fact we are going again in June this year for 2 weeks and we can not wait.

The apartments are less than 5 minutes from the beach (very hot sand) and is in the centre of the resort. They are basic. whether you want to relax in the sun, take a dip in the pool or go out all night on the lash they are all you need. There are plenty of places to sit by the pool and adequate shaded areas should you need to get out of the sun. It is close to all the shops, takeaways, bars and restaurants We had no problems with the staff and the rooms were cleaned daily. And the pool is cleaned daily (before 9am your not aloud in the pool).

I for one would recommend Benidorm, food and drink are fantastic, Leeds Arms for breakfast (2 mins walk) Yorkshire Pride for meals (3 mins walk) and ANY pub, they are all around and have friendly staff. Many with buy one get one free offers, you can have a damn good night with 20.00 Euros

Supermarkets are less than 5 mins away (and sell named brand products).

Just think 2000+ miles away from home and you can still buy a pot noodle. Pizza Hut and McDonalds less than 10 mins walk away too.
