      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 :)

      Northern coast

      by RoadBum Online Now May 12, 2011 at 8:34 AM

      We will be driving from Las Arenas in Cantabria to Santiago de Compostela(sp?) in one day. I realize this doesn't give us much time, but wondered if there was a spot along the way that would let us get out and see some rocky coastline. We will be there in late September. Many thanks!

    • House for rent in Gijon?

      by jykwon Online Now May 9, 2011 at 11:43 AM

      Hi! We are traveling to Gijon for about a week at the end of September. There are 4 of us and a baby. We'd really like to rent a house that sleeps 4 people and is also non-smoking. Can anyone recommend a good company or know of friends who rent apts or houses or cottages in or near Gijon?


      Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!

      Do the rooms in the Hotel San Miguel have air conditioning and a television? Are they currently having any construction work or rehabilitation going on in the hotel or nearby?

      1 night in Gijon!

      by Cutler05 Online Now Jan 28, 2008 at 3:46 PM

      hi guys,

      yes it'd that time of the year again! My family and I are off to Spain in August, yippee! Just wondered if anyone could recommend a suitable hotel for 1 night only in or around Gijon, as we have 1 night to kill before our villa is available and Gijon seems to be the perfect midway point. Would like to know if any hotels offer family rooms/adjoining room as boys will be 12 and 15 and getting too large to sleep in makedo camp beds. Not sure if hotels would allow them a room on their own either. We're not fussed about too many 'facilities' or stars as long as the hotel is comfortable and friendly.
      All suggestions greatly received!
      Happy travelling
      Thanx

    • Gijon visit with kids! HELP!

      by activefamilytraveler Online Now Dec 18, 2007 at 9:20 PM

      We are visiting Gijon over christmas and new years with KIDS! 4 year old, 2 year old and 8months old.
      Are there any place we should visit? Any playgrounds?
      Please give me some recommendation on family friendly (not classy) restaurant that serves good food.
      Thank you thank you thank you. I am so excited to visit such a beautiful city.

      Also, if anyone knows.. Is it easy to get around town by bus with kids? If we taxi, I thought we would need child car seat. (am I right?) so, bus is the only option seems like.
      If there are any recommendation, comments, advice, please let me know.

      We are going to Gijon for a wedding and would like to hire a villa. We will be staying for three nights, there are six of us going.

      Is this possible and can anyone recommend a villa or other accommodation?

      Are there any sights we should make an effort to see while there?

      Many thanks, Clarise.
