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 who performed 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. I am semi retired from the entertainment business, but still open to help out if stand ins are needed. It is in the blood so still need the odd gig from time to time.
“My role in admin is to write the sarcastic comments which keep the girls busy at night lol”
Meet the Team
Hazel McIntosh - 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 2019 and 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 ROLAND - MODERATOR
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.
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 150,000 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.

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
