    This is one of the many reasons I love Benidorm. Just retuned from a couple of hours tapas in old town. Not I may add in the tourist trap tapas alley, but in a little square patronised by Spanish people where with each drink you still get a free tapas. A glass of good rose cava and tapas still costs 1 Euro a go. 6 or 7 glasses later am not only full but ready for my afternoon nap before aperitif time.

    There are a few pitches, but I must be honest, they are filling up faster than I have ever seen in the 14 years I have been coming here. There are a lot of Scandinavians now, which have taken long term pitches. The new pitches on what used to be the old carpark were empty when Smudger and I arrived, but all 9 were taken within a couple of days. There are 2 Belgians on here with us and they leave in around a weeks time, one pitch is reserved by Odd the Norwegian and the other will be vacant. Book it as soon as you get here if the Belgians are still here.

    Its not easy trying to keep cool when its in the high twenties you know. Costs a fortune running the aircon or driving around in that little convertible trying to keep from melting away. Not to mention the copious amounts of beer and G&T to stop dehydration :).

    Tut Tut.... Just no respect on here at all !!!
    FYI (as they say).. I'm not there, if I was he'd be having a sip of "apple beer" and fast asleep..

    Roll on Nov 17th, flying out for a 10 days... It's Irene's birthday on the 18th, if there are a few funsters about and up for it them may try and plan a surprise meet / drink session...!!

    Hi Dave

    Is there any chance that you could book us the spot that is being vacated in the car park.

    I have just phoned La Torretta and was told that they do not take bookings.

    I have a paypal account and can pay you immediately if you could book it for us for at least 31 days.

    Lesley and Alan Mason, we have been there before, so they should have our details on there computer.

    Would really appreciate it.

    We should be there by 2pm on Friday all being well.

    Well do your best:) if you can't then don't worry.

    OK, Just spoke to the man, and although you will have to stay on the site when you arrive for a few days, the first available pitch on the supercamp is yours.

    I'm looking at a week away just after Christmas. I'm tempted to give this Benidorm a whirl. No time to drive, will have to be BA or the like. What is the best area for a week of fun and frolics. :cool:

    Go through Travel republic website - or book flights direct and the rest through them (save about £20)

    I'm just about to book for 2 adults- easyjet flights (Alicante) + 1 hold bag, shuttle transfers, Mayra Appartments (clean cheap and conveniently located - stayed there before) and airport parking (Southend) all under £400 for 8 days! 25 Jan to 2 Feb(y)
