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.

... t believe the quality of art work they produced!
This week's camp has been at the Museum of Archaelogy. It's a bit bigger of a group. Water games are incorporated, which the girls appreciate to cool down with! They pack a lunch each day and supposedly are very popular for their peanut butter and jelly that no one here has seen ...
... floor six. We track them down, and explain the situation. When the woman tried to retrieve the tank top, it dropped
another floor (after all, it wasn’t clothespinned). For a few days, the girls got in the habit of looking out the window, looking down, and saying good night to the out of reach tanktop all the way down. Tess especially loved recounting the story.
Eventually I grieved the loss of my orange tank top. I remembered this experience is ...

Sprite (then they mix it).
From there, we scouted out a local establishment Los
Mejillones and had amazing fresh calamari with sangria and live guitarists
which Tess tried to outperform.
Next was an ice cream place with ...
Our place is called “The spectacular attic” and the name couldn’t be more appropriate. What makes the place an attic is that it’s located on the 10th floor of a building across the street from the beach. Here is the view from our amazing (and somewhat treacherous) patio.
What makes the place ...
... worth the 10 euros. We also found name brand sunscreen. Biggest highlight have been the friends Moira and Celia make at the beach each day. Fascinating to see them use their Spanish to communicate... even more fascinating to meet friends who don't speak English or Spanish (from Russia, Lithuania) and see how language might not be that important to playing after all when you're 5 and 7 years old! Yesterday Moira made the leap to swim topless like her friends :)
