      transfer from cruise terminal to hotel

      Barcelona Feb 1, 2017 at 6:51 AM

      A friend and I are coming to Barcelona and needing to get transportation from cruise terminal to hotel. I need to know of any transfer companies in Barcelona and also any recommendations for nice but not too expensive hotels that are centrally located. Also will be in Barcelona for 3 days, so would like recommendations for shopping. Thanks for the info.

      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

    • Pizzeria near Paseo Maritimo?

      by DeeA45 Online Now Feb 7, 2015 at 7:06 AM

      I think that's the name of the area at least, it is the beach near the Puerto Marina area? There used to be a nice pizzeria at the very beginning of the restaurant area, just next to the opening to get down to the beach, that my family used to LOVE. We are finally going back this summer after almost 10 years, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if it's still there? (Google maps still shows the blue tops as it used to be so I have some hope?)

    • Is Benalmadena as busy / downmarket as Fuengirola?

      by incandescent Online Now Jun 28, 2014 at 9:02 AM

      The last time I was in neighbouring Fuengirola it was very crowded and busy in the evenings and there was a slightly threatening and downmarket atmosphere.

      Is Benalmadena the same, or is it a bit quieter and more upmarket?

    • BEST place for Flamenco with a child, that's free and not too late at night/in casino?

      by luciebythesea Online Now Apr 8, 2014 at 4:43 PM

      Pretty much as I say, my daughter is 8 nearly 9years old and loves to dance and we are coming to Benalmadena with my Mum and my son (12) too next week. No car, and staying at Sahara sunset hotel ( i don't want a review of this, its booked so it it what it is)

      But where can we take her to see Flamenco. it does not need to be especially true, or authentic, as she is only 8!1 Just not too long, or late at night or 35E!

      Many thanks

      by Bingo11 Online Now Jul 19, 2013 at 6:20 AM

      We both have mobility problems. Have any of you used the Torrequebrada Hotel pools, indoor and out? Do they have any other way to climb out other than the ladder-type steps? If there are steps down to the beach, are there handrails? Poor access spoiled our last hols. Also, are there any steps to access the cable car ride, and if so, are there handrails? We haven't visited Benalmadena for years, and don't know the Torrequebrada region, so any disability tips would be most appreciated.
