Hotel Magic Fenicia
Travel Blogs from Benidorm
After we had left the caravan we drove to Altea to stay with Michel and Nacir who had invited us . When we arrived Michel was already prepared to start cooking and the huge Gamba's were ready to be put with the fish on the grill, miammmi ! Michel loves cooking and put all his pleasure and energy in preparing our lunch while chatting away with lots of Belgian humor and of course a fresh sangria and some wine ...
... and locals and set our towels down ready to soak up more sun, with a promise of a quick dip in the sea. I, unfortunately wasn't quite liberal enough with the suntan lotion and burnt a little across my stomach, arms and back. I decided, after much deliberation to get in the sea which turned out to be a little chilly, ...

We also enjoyed a dip in the rather nippy unheated pool, which was quite nice after an afternoon of baking in the sun. Later that evening, Duncan's wife Em had rather amusingly attempted to book a local restaurant using a mixture of english, french and spanish with a rather adamantly ...

Once there we waited a while for luggage and met up with other members of the party, Tash's dad's friend Des was already waiting at the airport cafe, joined a ...

The accommodation and train were easy, even with the train booking website in Spanish (thank you Word Lens) but the bus booking was a pain in the butt. I tried using the ALSA (Spanish bus company which is part of a bigger British company) app on my phone using the English verson, but it seemed to have a bug and wouldn´t go to the payment page. So then I tried on the website ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Magic Fenicia Benidorm
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.
We were allocated on arrival and half board, but we would not rate this hotel as 3* Hotel
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`.
