Stayed four nights at the beginning of May . Great hotel and exceptionally clean. Upgraded to a deluxe room with a balcony on the 2nd floor . Well equipped and safe room with a well furbished bathroom. Beautiful court yard, where you can relax and have a cold drink.
The Hotel is close to the old river and the old town.
Downside we looked forward to taking our infant swimming to be informed that the Hotel's pool is for members and no children are allowed. Right outside the Hotel is a public pool. Their I was informed that the child had to be 7 years old.!! (where do the Valencian kids learn to swim in safety).
Next we spent a long time selecting clothes in ZARA next to "future town". Having placed our clothes through the till and placed my am ex card into the machine. Not knowing, I made the mistake and spoke English. The young girl behind the desk then abruptly asked "PASSPORT"
Despite my protestations (offering other cards to include debit)and a long trail of people behind us. The bags of clothing could not be paid for. I have traveled the World and never had any issues re payment and it was only when I spoke English that my "PASSPORT" became an issue. The Spanish who enter the UK would not be asked for a Passport for goods.
So despite all the people we met (apart from the stuck up wee assistant from Zara) we had a great time in Spain. Knowing the economy and financial state of Spain. I was disappointed by the attitude .(Having been recently to Portugal and Malta we had a great time re retail therapy)
