    Hi
    We went to Villasol last year for Christmas and the wifi was terrible.
    Does anyone know if it has improved this year and how much it is please?
    Thanks
    Jan & Steve

    Last year a few funsters were taking MIFI units and getting sim cards and data packages from the indoor market.
    Do a search and I am sure you will find the info...

    the sim we all got was hits the stall in the indoor market sold them but there are 2 stalls and i cant remember what was the best 1 but the sim cost around 30e for a month around 3gig of data if i remember rightly
    villasol is prolly still the same rubbish wifi
    what mobile network do you have maybe they will be better to use

    We used the Villasol wifi when we arrived at Villasol last year.It was rubbish to put it mildly.
    We purchased a MiFi and a "Hits" sim card from one of the stalls in the indoor market.
    I can't remember the name of the stall, but I think that "Andys" was the one to avoid.
    We will not bother with the Villasol wifi this year and will purchase a sim card for our MiFi again.
    Brisey.

    HI Thanks for your replies. We need wifi for the ipad so that we can facetime family over christmas. Would it be better to do this from the bars that have free wifi?

    Andy's stall is "mi mobile" and he is operating on his own now. You will need to bring your passport in order to buy a data SIM. We hope to be at Villasol from the 19th December on if you need any help. Don't forget that there are plenty of free Wi-Fi spots in the cafe and bars around Benidorm.

    you can facetime in most of the bars but it would be less private than your own wifi and a mifi we find is a must
