Another year, another birthday, another visit! Last year a got a lot of stick for commenting on the clientele. A nice bunch this year - more English than ever and lots of golfers.
Hotel continues to provide a solid base for a holiday. Nice location, excellent breakfast and clean tidy rooms. Staff friendly and they seem to have lost the bossy head waiter of previous years. Emailed in for a particular room and it was ready and waiting on arrival.
Unlike others I was quite happy with the saltwater pool as I usually swim in sea at the nearby beach. Pool water clear as a bell although some of the tiling might offend Holiday Watchdog! Wifi is free too and seems to work well so you can phone home via Skype on your smartphone for next to nothing.
I really miss a cava on the balcony while watching the sun go down. For those who thought the appartments opposite a bit of an eyesore, there used to be a lady who did her ironing on the balcony in an interesting state of undress.......!!
Local restaurants seem to still provide good value with most offering a fixed price meal for two with wine. The former Flintstone's now Portals Village does a tapas selection of unexpectedly good quality. I certainly can't afford to eat by the marina!
Regular local buses but very crowded at peak times.
Its only 10 degrees C here today in Uk so might well go back for a few more days in October.
