The 2-star Maryciel Apartments are located in Benidorm, on Spain's Costa Blanca. This aparthotel has been recently refurbished and offers great views of the Mediterranean, as well as an outdoor pool and surrounding gardens. It makes a good base for families or young groups looking to enjoy the summer sun.
The 13-storey Maryciel complex has 41 one- and two-bedroomed apartments, accommodating between one and six people. It's an ideal venue for groups who can book consecutive rooms together and is popular for parties, although you are asked to behave responsibly! Cash deposits are required against damages, and there's also a charge for WiFi. Each apartment has a combination of single and sofa beds, with a terrace (some sea views available) and a fully fitted kitchen and satellite TV. You can get a drink in the pool bar in the summer, and the complex is situated opposite a renowned Benidorm restaurant, The Corral.
This simple aparthotel is close to the Levante beach, the Aqualandia Water Park and the bustling nightlife of Benidorm. For active types, it's recommended to take a hike up to the heights of La Creu or Cruz, where an annual religious procession used to take a cross to ask forgiveness for licentious behaviour. Nowadays, it offers the most spectacular views of the Costa Brava, and is well worth the effort for the pictures you'll get from the top. Other attractions of Benidorm are the Old Town, with its cobbled streets and tapas bars, and meeting the dolphins at the Mundomar Aquarium.
