Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Magic Fenicia Benidorm
Can't wait to come back
My husband, sister in-law and I stayed at the Fenicia for a week, all inclusive in April 2004 - it was our first visit to Benidorm and we were a bit apprehensive but loved the Fenicia so much that my husband and I are going back again in September this year and can't wait. As we are all in our 50's we found the old town more suited to us and, as the hotel is just up the road from the dove park it was impossible not to find your way back there!! The food was brilliant with a huge selection every meal. There were a lot of older people and Spanish families staying there which suited us fine - if you are wanting serious nightlife then this is NOT the hotel for you but they did have reasonable entertainment on every night. The added bonus is being able to use the rest of the Magic group's hotels in the area as if we were out for a walk we could pop into one of their other hotels for a drink or at night to see their entertainment. When we there the outdoor pool on the roof was closed but there were plenty of sunloungers and chairs up there for a sunbathe - and the pool bar was very handy!! The staff were all very friendly and most had a great sense of humour - in fact we learnt more about the area from the bar staff than we did from our own rep!!
We have been to this hotel twice and are going again in January '05, we thoroughly enjoyed our stays at the Hotel Fenecia. All the Magic group of hotels in the area are excellent. We cannot fault anything at all, the food is excellent, the staff are very friendly, and the hotels offer excellent facilities and entertainment. To all those writing negative reviews, I can only surmise that you are extremely fussy, and are the sort, to write and complain the minute you arrive back in UK, to try for compensation. May the Magic Group of hotels, prosper and flourish for many years to come.
Regards Nigel and June.
Would not return
We were allocated on arrival and half board, but we would not rate this hotel as 3* Hotel
Outdoor swimming pool is on roof and empty, Indoor pool cold till later in day and dirty, pool tables and other games always in need of staff assistance,
Gym open 2 hrs a day yet to be seen sauna 2 hours again yet to be seen open
Food not good at all and very repetitive
There was some helpful staff,
Bedroom was ok but bathroom dirty with condensation and smelly drains.
Entertainment was baised round spanish as we were there in spanish holiday time
I would not advise anyone to go to Benidorm during the spanish holiday.
They don't know how to wait and queue, they have no manners whatsoever and do nothing but shout !!
The worst holiday we have ever had, if it hadnt been for the bar on corner outside Hotel (Vincents) and The Irish bar in one of the streets, think our children would have starved of activity and food
the hotel Fenicia was great we didnt leave the hotel for the 2 weeks that we were there i am a child and there was lots to do archery pool table tennis bowls there just wasnt enought days to do it all. The staff here are great and always greet you well. I loved it and am glad to say goin again
Cannot fault this Hotel - or any in the MAGIC GROUP - the Staff were friendly and approachable.
Only wish the rooftop pool had been filled in and usable. Clean rooms, friendly staff, superb choice of meals. We have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel - and we will be back one day.
Have been to fenicia past 2 years and probably return this year. I found it a very relaxing holiday...especially on the rooftop bar in the evenings. Bar staff very friendly especially `annita`.

I'd already booked this hotel then read the terrible review that was on here from another guest so I wasn't looking forward to my stay.
However, I was pleasantly suprised. When we first arrived on the Saturday we were checking in during one of the busiest weekends in Benidorm, lots of older spanish ladies and gents who really don't have any manners and things were looking grim. Once we had checked in and looked around then we perked up. The hotel itself is in a great location, just a few yards from the beach, and great facilities. The only thing I would advise is not to go to Benidorm during the siesta's when there are lots of spanish also holidaying. They don't know how to wait and queue, they have no manners whatsoever and do nothing but shout !! The hotel itself is great, the food was good, not brilliant but good, and plenty of it,,,,there's something for every taste, and the staff are very friendly and willing to help.
i was at fenicia hotel in july it was terrible the two pools are very dirty and the food was terrible my two kids became ill i was glad to get home.
stayed fenicia dec 02 after having been to other all inc hotels have to say this was the worst. it was full of all old people who tutted everytime we went to the bar. as there was 4 of us not kids ourselves we could not beleve thier attitudes to us. the food was awful rooms ok staff very unhelpful, on arriving we were given one room for 4 adults took alday to sort it out the reception staff would not sort it out had to wait for reps to come at 4oclock would not go again.

... slogging the road. The lovely Mexican girls with smiley faces in the streaming rain. Tiger the Irish lad with his non stop chatter made the kilometres fly by. Sheila with her strength and stupidity breaking the pain barrier. Jimmy for coping so well with us two and, keeping her on her feet, carrying the bulk of our belongings and keeping me warm and dry. I hope the wonderful memories of this trip will keep us at home for the near future, but knowing those two I doubt ...
... Benidorm? Simply because neither of us have ever been and we’ve heard of so many people going.
Was it our grandparents/older relatives that went maybe?? Oh we were very young and got run over by tandem disability scooters on numerous occasions.
To be fair, we had a lovely walk along the promenade and around town (got a bit lost!!), then back to the campsite (about 7 miles). We ate on the promenade ...
Soon after lunch, we went for a drive to Benidorm. It was the other city that wasn't to far away where we are staying. It only took 40 minutes to get to Benidorm. I was surprised that there was a lot more high rise apartments in Benidorm. We parked the car close to the beach and walked to the beach. It was packed. And nearly all the people I saw were older than 70years old. ...
We went to the long sandy beach I had spotted yesterday from the tram. When we were getting ready at home, I looked at the map. It looked really simple, but it turned to not too easy. I like sandy beaches more than the rocky ones. I think it is more fun playing in the sand rather than carefully walking on the small rocks not to fall. There was a tram track right along beach. I through that it was really cool ...
"The sky is nice and clear..." I thought while Mum, Mitsuki and I were walking to a tram stop. Today we decided to have a day trip to Alicante. It was the closest city from where we are staying. On the way in to Alicante, we saw the beach that we tried to get to yesterday. It was very long sandy beach along the side of the tram track. There were a sand soccer pitch and a few basketball court on that beach. I saw more high rises when we were getting closer to ...
