Magic Villa del Mar teams style with a standout location – it’s right on Poniente Beach, close to Benidorm’s old town.
This beachfront property gets top marks for style. The interiors are super-contemporary – think funky chairs and coloured lighting in the bars – and bedrooms are dressed in a palette of soft colours. Opt for one of the Jacuzzi® sea-view rooms and you’ll be able to look over the Med from your own whirlpool bath.
The swimming pool is just as easy on the eye. It’s a small, rectangular number with a pebble-effect border and a line of in-water sunloungers. More loungers are set out on the sun terrace, along with chic white parasols.
Up on the roof, there’s a terrace with widescreen sea views. During the day, it’s a sunbathing area with loungers and a soundtrack of chill-out music, while after dark it transforms into a chic cocktail bar.
Location-wise, you’re just across the prom from sandy Poniente Beach and less than 10-minutes’ stroll from the tapas bars and restaurants in the old town.
The superior double room has a luxurious air to it with dark wood, contemporary furnishings. It sleeps up to three adults or two adults and two children. With plenty of sunlight flooding in, the views look out over the back of the hotel. They come complete with a hydro massage shower.
Have just returned from yet another fabulous break at the Villa Del Mar. While there my son and Daughter-in-law celebrated their 20th Wedding anniversary, the hotel supplied fresh fruit and Champagne in their room on their arrival( free of charge).Speaking to Veronica on reception I mentioned that it was my Son's birthday and she arranged a beatiful cake and Champagne to to served at our evening meal. Every member of staff are friendly and helpful, I have been going for a number of years and have always had a wonderful time. A great big thank you to all the staff espcially Veronica you do a brilliant job.More

First Class All Inclusive well away from the madness of the New Town
Spent 9 excellent days at VdM the week after Easter. The premium sea view rooms are superb although not the roomiest with an extra bed. Higher floors have great views. The real highlights here are the beach side location, the proximity to the old town, the rooftop terrace and tge quality of the food and drink. Quite literally a stones throw to a beautiful beach and this means you can nip back for drinks and snacks. The views from the rooftop terrace are breath taking and it's a magnificent spot for a pre dinner drink. All drinks are premium brand and AI means just that all cocktails, bottled beer, cava etc are included. Also included are crisps, nuts etc a godsend with kids. Wine is all bottles, ask for 2 glasses and you will simply be given the bottle and beer is draught or bottled Estrella Damm and Heiniken. Food was great, very much European style as you would hope and expect. Numerous fish and shellfish options lunch and evening and some brilliant meat dishes using some unsung cuts. Superb oxtail, pork cheek and shin dishes and ribs. Loads of veg and salad plus fresh carved ham and a cracking goats cheese. Best AI food we have encountered. Staff are attentive and friendly. A couple of well publicised down sides were the average entertainment (good magician and flamenco shows apart) and a pretty much unusable pool area due to it being covered by a retractable plastic "greenhouse" to make it "all weather". Its definitely a beach based holiday hotel but don't be put off it's excellent and we will return some time for sure.More
Chill out bar!!!!Mmmm!
Lovely clean hotel, friendly staff, good food.
ONE main gripe though:- there is a 'chill out' bar/area on the 9th floor roof, at times it was more like the departure lounge of a busy airport! Some people don't understand the meaning of chill out, what with mobile phones going off all the time and extremely loud( sometimes graphic) conversations taking place, relax is the last thing you can do.
WARNING:- if going on the beach, make sure your valuables are secure! Ours were within 6" of being swiped by thieves parading between sun beds .More
