A most enjoyable holiday
Posted Sep 13, 2016
From start to finish we had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The trip from the airport was a 15 minute ride, and there is an airport bus that goes into the centre of the city from where you can get on one of the local busses if you need to go further than a short walk with your cases. The hotel was in our ideal location - in between beaches and the shops, and walkable to both. The outlook from our room was over the marina with all the yachts and boats, and the tent like stalls on the front. We got a bus card from reception which we could then charge up with Euros and use on the very easy to use and good bus network when we had had enough of walking. There are more than enough restaurants within easy reach, and enough variety to cater for most tastes if you are not into Spanish food, though of course it is mostly Spanish. We found a few nice places for a light and late lunch having had a late breakfast. For us the big adjustment was the late opening times of most of the restaurants - between 20:00-21:00 hrs - but we adjusted and occasionally found one that opened earlier. The Spanish people were vey friendly and always tried to compensate for the lack of our Spanish vocabulary! Our overall experience was a very positive one, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend such a trip.
