    Hello
    We are new to this site and to campervaning.
    We are going to Villasol in Benidorm for Christmas! probably arriving on the 19th December.
    We understand from the website that they have cable tv, so we are thinking about taking a tv.
    Has anyone done this?
    Also can anyone recommend anywhere good for Christmas dinner?
    Is there anyone else going there this year?
    Look forward to your replies.
    Jan & Steve:Smile:

    At this rate it will be full when we get there on the28/29th December :Laughing:
    The tv reception is ok. You need an Ariel lead to plug into the site signal and it's on an analogue signal.

    You can buy a 10mtr lead in the Chinese bazzar shops for a few euros.. Not expensive..
    BUT ref Villasol, you need a TV with Analogue tuner..!! Some of the new TV's have Digital only...

    Villasol

    Thanks for all your replies.
    Christmas dinner looks great in the Villasol bar.
    What is Christmas Eve like in Benidorm?
    Also do you think we should bring our awning, we have a safari like room?
    Another question, are there washing facilities for clothes and will they dry?
    Really thinking about drying towels and washing and drying jeans etc. Hope too hear from you soon.

    Lots of vans have their safari rooms up. However last year we were troubled by very strong winds in Jan & Feb and a lot of people took them down. Some were damaged so be aware.:thumb:

    Chrismas Eve is great. Very 'Tropical' in fact :party2:

    New Years is celebrated twice :Eeek: UK then Spain.
    Yes bring your awning.
    Washing facilities are available, everything will dry. It was sunny and warm nearly everyday when we were there Dec / early Jan. :Cool:

    It can be windy .....
