The other half of the shopping center has now been closed but the original half they closed has reopened . The problem is due to health and safety as the power was / is dangerous and was closed by health and safety inspectors.the shop owners where told to fix the problem a while ago but did not do anything so it was closed down.

The Europa centre (just across from where you are staying) remains unaffected.

Dont worry about it cos the Europa is just as good.

Remember and go to the Irish bar in the Europa as they have great music and brilliant staff there.

Let me know how you get on as we have booked the Babalu for a week in October 08.

We were at the Altamar this year which is just down the road and you are allowed to use the facilities in both hotels.

Hi,

Have read a few posts on a different forum and the word is that all power is now all on in the CC.I don`t know if this will last but it should not make much of a difference to you as you are at the top at the Europa which I believe is unaffected.
