    In Feb there was a whole lot of empty hotel and apartment space judging by lights at night. Make sure you have a good haggle on price. Since the weather won't be brilliant your hotel route will make for a far nicer holiday.

    Hi Roger & Sheila, we will be pitched up at Camping Villasol, Benidorm from sometime in December 2013 through to the end of February 2014. I believe that quite a few Funsters will also be going, not sure of their arrangements though. No doubt a thread will be started nearer to the time.

    Brisey & Pamelaaar.

    PS. quiet drinkies are not on our agenda.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Saga louts

    Have had a quote from SAGA
    for Avenida Hotel and
    as this appeals to us we have decided to go as Saga-louts and meet up with as many funsters as P:BigGrin:ssible. :thumb:

    Avienda, I think is down very close to the town,..
    Most of the Brit style bars and campsites are down at the Levente / Rincon end, closer to stagger back....:Wink:

    we are keeping an eye on this thread as we are interested in this as well, haven't stayed anywhere other than the uk in winter before but determined to have a bit of warmth this coming winter either in the van or hotel whichever works out best/convenient/ cost effective?
    looking forward to meeting old and new acquaintances/ friends.

    We will hopefully be at Villasol from 29th Dec until the end of February.

    Occasionally we will have an early night (only due to the bad influence of other funsters).

    Have to say that the weather in January/February was pretty good compared to the UK.

    Came home with a very nice tan.:Cool:

    With regards to the cost effectiveness I can appreciate that apartments/hotels may work out cheaper for some. For us its the beauty of having all our own possessions etc (including bicycles) with us.

    Sorry ... No dogs on Villasol...
    I know a lot of people would want to try it but the no dog rule stops that.
    Assume some people may even book it for that reason BUT the way the dogs bark around Benidorm you cant get away from some noise..

    Several other sites nearby..

    We also hope to be at Villasol on our way (thinking via Marjal Spa and Granada) to Bella Vista\Gibraltar then maybe Cordoba on our return, travelling soon after Christmas.

    We like a quieter life and usually go to bed early - 2.30am..... approx. :Wink:

    We will be in Beni from mid Jan through to end of Feb. Camping Villasol looks as though it could be fun. Do you have to book early?

    The way this is going you may have to.. !!! :Doh:

    It is a popular site with may people returning each year, I guess so do book as they always seem to be in the same place. Popular with the Dutch.
    I have never booked and always got in for stays between 2 days and a month...
