    Planning a trip along the South coast of Spain, heading eventually for Benidorm. One planned stop for a couple of nights is at Almerimar Marina. Anybody stayed there? Any facilities?

    We stayed there last year. Lovely spot with water and waste facilities. I think there are EHUs as well but we didn't bother with those. Lots of bars and restaurants and we cycled up to the huge shopping mall for a bit of exercise and retail therapy! The showers are a long way from the parking area but we didn't need them. We parked overlooking the sea and it was lovely.

    Stayed there a few weeks back, 16 amp EHU. There are 2 sections the one on the mole close to the office with the great views, the other is over the other side by the commercial area, you have to get a pass from the main office on the mole and trundle round. It is a bit run down there and loads of grafiti which put us off. So we stayed on the mole, delightful. One bit of advice, dont stay Friday or Saturday the night club on the beach right behind goes on to the early hours, 5 ish, and is loud as they open the doors if its warm!

    Be careful, there are two M/H parking areas one is awful 12ft high walls in front and behind full of graphite. You need to be by the Harbour Masters office.(y)

    We were there in March last year so no open doors and noise! I agree about parking by the main office and not over the other side, which is run down. We were there after a mammoth rain storm and we drove through flooded streets to get to it - but it was well worth the frightening aquatic drive!

    Yes sure was, and it was 30 plus! BUT we always have our trusty ear plugs! (needed some weekends with the Spanish having a good time) Will go again as we loved it too, mid week though.

    On the EHU I forgot, you need a special 4 pin adapter that the marina office lend you with a deposit of 50 euros (refundable) or passport.

    LOL - last time I went to Almerimar, it was far from finished! They'd only been 'at it' a couple of years, then.

    Like you, the only time we have visited the marina it was very much a work in progress and at the time we went by car. Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

    LOL @bryandh - they were only talking about building one! It might be quite nice now. Is the big hotel they were building by the golf courses finished? and is the course, ditto? They'd just laid the turf when we went and they had massive sprinklers going.

    Where an acquaintances villa was you had to walk about half a mile to a very small, crowded outdoor swimming pool. There was one tennis court. There was a thatched bar and restaurant (where we ate that evening, I got bitten to bits on the parts of my thighs which were actually on the seat cushions - not mozzies, God knows what but took all winter to heal) and that was about that!

    Hopefully it's slightly better now ......
