      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 :)

    • Business in Gibraltar, and staying in Estepona

      by LGT Online Now Nov 27, 2013 at 7:00 PM

      I am going to Gibraltar on business in a few weeks and don't want to stay there. I would like to stay in Estepona and have a taxi drive me to the Gibraltar border in the morning, and pick me up in the evening. Does this sound like a reasonable plan, given the distance? Also, I am trying to decide between the Elba Hotel and the Kempinski Hotel. Any recommendations? Thanks!

I just can't seem to find anywhere on the internet that is for a summer let. It is either just short term or long term (11 months).Any advice would be great.

      Hi hoping someone can help me.

      I lived in Estepona for 18 months, returning to the UK in June 2001. Unfortunately I lost contact details for friends who ran bars and restaurants in the area, mostly in Calle Real and Avenida Espana.

      Can someone tell me if the vines restaurant is still there, if Bogie's (after Humphrey Bogart!) bar is opposite and also if there is a cafe called D.D's, run by a Moroccan guy, accessed from both streets still a couple of doors away from the British Big burger Bar?

Also, all the hotels we've looked at on the internet seem to be either big impersonal ones, or are out of town. Any ideas please?

      We're staying in Estepona in August.

      I plan on visiting family near Gibraltar and taking the family to see the dolphins.

      Is Tivoli World too far a trip from Estepona??

      I would appreciate information on which aqua park is more suitable for my children aged 8 and 5.

      I know about Selwo Safari and Selwo Marina. Well I think I do. Any tips please.

      What is Estepona like in the evenings for young children?

      We as parents dream of being able to walk the promanade on a warm evening and stop and watch the kids play on 'rides'.

      Is Estepona too quiet for this?

      We have hired a car and are keen to venture. Tips again please.

      Many thanks in advance for any response what so ever.
