Our New Social Media Stream is finally here.
Over two years ago we announced our intention to create a new service within Benidorm Seriously to improve the standard of what we can offer our members.
Facebook has often been very restrictive for us. We always have to do things their way. Believe it or not there have been days throughout the pandemic when we have had to withhold information until the next day, because Facebook decided we had told you enough for one day. In fact one of our admin has been blocked from Facebook for one month due to excessive action on the group. Their automated systems can not tell the difference between information and spam. It seems we are a victim of our own success.
We have often said within admin, "Wouldn't it be better if we could do it our way?".
Now we can.
With our new Social Media Stream we can offer our members a much more comprehensive service to cater for your holiday in Benidorm, or to help with rules and regulations for those who live here. Some of the new features we have included are
- Instant automated approval. No need to wait for admin to approve your post.
- Easy sharing links so you can ask your question of this Group and the Facebook Group at the same time. Your question can still be seen by everyone
- Filter controls so you can decide what you do or do not want to see on the group
- Ranking System for members. With this you will be able to tell if the person who answers your question is a two week per year holiday maker or someone who really knows Benidorm
- We have simulated the services offered by expensive dating sites and offered them here for our solo travellers absolutely free.
- The VIP Lounge, offering a superior 24/7 service for a small annual cost.
- A Monthly draw for Vouchers to spend with any of our sponsors. The higher your activity within the Group and Website, the more entries you have in the draw.
CHECK IT OUT NOW (Note. You will need to log in to see it, but if not registered already, registering with Facebook can complete your registration very quickly.)
If you would like to suggest a name for our New Social Media Section or vote for your favourite, you can do it here. You are not restricted. Vote for all your favourites.

Benidorm Seriously Weekly Meeting Venues
PLEASE NOTE Benidorm Seriously Weekly Meetings HAVE NOW BEEN SUSPENDED
We have noticed a severe decline in the numbers attending the weekly meetings We believe this to be caused by a combination of things. Mainly that many members now simply drop into the office to say hello when they are in town and also the fact that as the group has now grown to over 140,000 members it has simply lost its intimacy. Everyone does not know everyone else anymore.
We are also aware that many members do enjoy the meetings when they are in town, therefore we have decided to introduce a new system. Any member who would like to attend a meeting when in Benidorm can fill in the form below. We will organise meetings when we know there are sufficient people interested in attending and also organise these meetings to be as central as possible to your accommodation. We feel this is fair to both admin who give up their free time to attend these meetings and also to our sponsors, many of whom go to great lengths offering buffets and other similar treats for those in attendance.
Benidorm Seriously Weekly Meetings
If you do arrive and the bar is busy make sure you come and say hello to one of us, we don´t bite lol and I am sure we are easier for you to recognise as there are only a few of us compared to over 1,000s of members.
FOR PHOTOS OF PREVIOUS GROUP MEETINGS (Sorry this link is temporarily disabled)
Please also remember our articles collection for Busy Bees charity.
More about this charity HERE on their Facebook Group
What they need -
Toiletries - most of the children have to share things like shower gels etc and I am sure they would appreciate there very own bottle of shampoo etc. so things like shower gel, soap, shampoo, conditioner, even perfumes, aftershaves shaving gel, wet wipes etc
The basics : - Sanitary towels, tampons, toilet rolls, tooth paste, tooth brushes, razors, etc
For the babies : Nappies, baby wipes, dummies, talc, bottles, teats etc
Basically anything that is not perishable, so next time you find yourself in a supermarket just spend that 1€ extra and pop something in your basket and drop it off to us at the meeting.
Thank you all for your kind donations to date xxx

WHAT IS BENIDORM SERIOUSLY – Benidorm Seriously is an information site managed by people that have lived here for many years, ensuring that the information provided is as up to date, factual and as accurate as possible.
We welcome your input in to the site so please let us know what you would like to see here.
Tracy Ann Essex – Started Benidorm Seriously Facebook group on 9th March 2015
Born in Essex having worked as an Estate Agent, Secretary, Land Lady and Events Organiser. Purchased a property in Torrevieja in 2007 and moved to Spain lock stock and barrel in 2008 where I lived and worked in Torrevieja for 3 years running my own water filter business amongst lots of other things.
Moved to Benidorm in 2011 where I have worked as Door Staff (don´t laugh), Telesales and in various bars and restaurants, and photographer for the Blues Brothers Experience.
Benidorm Seriously is now a full time job and we now have an office open in town which means we are now more accessible to our members to give face to face help and advice, more information and map to the Benidorm Seriously Office can be found HERE
I have experience in all aspects of living and working in Spain, even divorce lol.
Born in Portadown, Co Armagh (a long time ago) I have been living and working in Benidorm since January 2010.
An entertainer from Northern Ireland and now working as Jake Blues, part of the very successful Blues Brothers Experience show here in Benidorm and throughout the Costa Blanca.
While assisting with some of the day to day admin my main role is more of a technical nature, with the website, forum and music page.
“My role in admin is to write the sarcastic comments which keep the girls busy at night lol”
Meet the Team
Jill Shail - Office and group administrator
I was born in Scotland but lived in Wiltshire for a large amount of my childhood and adult life. Moved to France in 2016 but it was raining so we came to Benidorm for a holiday for a week but stayed 90 days!!! Came back to Benidorm for the Winter in Nov 2016 and fell in love, we decided to stay. Aurevoir France, Ola Espana.
I am a huge fan of the group and am always on Facebook at home so this is great for me. My other real love (apart from my husband and dog of course) is Football. well most sports and have found some fantastic locations in Benidorm to watch them.
I have joined Benidorm Seriously as part of the Admin team having previously worked in different sectors in Administration, Customer Service, IT and Project Management.
Hazel McIntosh - Group Administrator
I’m originally from Scotland. I’d been coming to Benidorm on holiday regularly for 11 years and was starting to come over more and more. So, I decided to move here in February 2019. The Benidorm Seriously webpage was my go-to for finding out about everything I needed to live in Spain.
I started as an Admin with Benidorm Seriously in the March, and although I’m still trying to find my feet, I’m absolutely loving it. The team are really helpful and a great bunch.
I was previously an Admin Assistant with the local Council back in Scotland and prior to that worked in accountancy and legal firms. I’m also a self-employed transcriptionist, which fits around the Benidorm Seriously work perfectly.
Dave is a Fresh Radio Presenter, he has lived in Spain for many many years and holds Spanish Citizenship. Dave is always fully up to date on all legal matters and current local news.
An entertainer here in Benidorm and a great addition to our admin team.
Leanna Blevins, currently taking a sabbatical ......
Yes the surname is the same…. I am Derek´s favourite daughter (he´ll say he doesn´t have a favourite though). I am from Portadown (Co Armagh), I am the newbie and the baby of the team at 26 years old.
I am a fully qualified beauty therapist but taking some time out to be a full time mother to my 3 children, Taylor Kayden and Brook.
I previously lived in Benidorm and worked in a beauty salon, then decided to open and run my own salon before returning home to raise my children.

Los Objetivos de Benidorm Seriously.
- Proporcionar a los visitantes y residentes respuestas exactas a las preguntas relativas a cualquier tema referente a Benidorm
- Sensibilizar sobre áreas y actividades fuera del área de la playa de Levante para ayudar a los turistas a mejorar sus vacaciones con nuevas experiencias
- Ayudar a introducir a los turistas británicos en la cultura española y fomentar el apoyo de las empresas españolas (por ejemplo, restaurantes y bares de tapas como una alternativa al Fish& Chips y el alcohol barato ofrecido en muchos de los bares británicos)
- Para ayudar a disipar el mito de muchas personas en Gran Bretaña que Benidorm sólo atiende a familias de bajos ingresos. Un problema que a menudo anima a los miembros más pudientes de la Sociedad Británica a elegir lugares como Marbella, Mallorca y Salou como su destino favorito de vacaciones en España.
- Promover el entorno inmediato desde Torrevieja a Valencia. La Costa Blanca tiene algunos de los paisajes más hermosos del mundo. Hay muchos visitantes que han venido a Benidorm durante más de 20 años y nunca han dejado el área de playa de Levante.
- Para ayudar a promover el entretenimiento que Benidorm tiene para ofrecer. Hay más de 200 espectáculos realizados en Benidorm cada noche. Este hecho no tiene parangón en ningún lugar de Europa, y con la excepción de Las Vegas en Estados Unidos, posiblemente sin igualen ninguna parte del mundo.
- Estamos en comunicación con la Policía Nacional y somos capaces de colaborar con ellos cuando tomamos conciencia de actividades ilegales o sospechosas mientras supervisamos las discusiones en el grupo de Facebook.
Si le gusteria apoyar nuestro trabajo y publicitar su negocio a miles de turistas británicos a bajo costo, descargue nuestra guía aquí.
