Hello , as anywhere and probably more so in regards to benidorm you have to take sensible precautions to make your visit as safe as possible.
Lots if other threads on here to research information , and this one will no doubt become one of them.

Big problems in Magaluf at the moment with African prostitutes offering their services and mugging those that show an interest. And those that don't.
Not dissimilar scale of problems with the above in benidorm too.
I (female) was there last month and walking home to our apartments we past four different groups of these woman, they where hanging around the flash hotel, indoor market and up towards the Dynastic hotel, they will lift any thing from you that they can.
They target lone men so try and keep together or get a taxi home at the end of the night. If you are a group of lads be careful with the bouncers at some of the bars on Calle Gerona and the Square, they dont operate like the bouncers in the U.K they will just wade in and beat you to a pulp.
I am sure you will have a good holiday but being for warned is being forarmed as they say.
Short answer is Yes.
A resort for those who are at least a bit streetwise and open minded. If you don't like noise, party people of all ages, young, old, and those in between, then it's not a resort for you.
It's often warmer than Cumbernauld?
The strip, especially at weekends is mental, the later in the evening the more rowdy it will get moreso after midnight. Exercise caution, be aware of your surroundings, read posts on here about such groups like the so called ‘Pea Men’ and other potential pitfalls, don’t draw attention to yourself by wearing fancy jewellery
We’ve just returned after a very enjoyable 13 days, did not see any trouble, was out till past midnight most nights, thoroughly enjoyed it
Those big black ladies you talk about only stay out until the early hours making sure all the drunken stags make it safely back to their apartments / hotels . They are so kind and caring, they go up and beyond their care of duty
Mother Teresa in a weave, each and every one of them. Always giving the poor a helping hand.
