      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 :)

      by hawkhead Online Now Feb 2, 2015 at 8:43 AM

      For a visit to Tarifa during the second week of March - would like to visit Baelo Claudia. How can one visit this place other than by private car? Is there a tour? Is it possible by public transport? If not, is there a car rental place in Tarifa? All the places I have looked at are for pick-up in either Jerez or Cadiz - not practical for one day!

      I will be traveling and touring the southern part of Spain and have read were many go across to Tangiers from Tarifa. My question is, is if possible to see another city in Morocco, besides Tangiers, on a one day excursion? For example, is it realistic to go to Fez for the day or is Tangiers my only option? If Fez, or some other city is an option, what kind of transportation options are there?

      Me and my husband are going to be in Tarifa at the beginning of September. We're in our mid-20s, been to Europe twice before, never been to Spain. We will have a rental car with us. Planning on staying two nights. We generally like B&Bs or boutique hotel type of places, not really interested in hostels but might do a private room in one. Need a private bathroom. Our budget is MAX 100EUR a night, but that is really on the high end. We're planning to be in Europe for around 28 days. Would prefer to spend around 70EUR if possible. We have been looking into this on our own, but always like to get more opinions! Wading through all those reviews takes a lot of time! :P Thanks.

    • Hostal Alameda

      by rhiannon.1209 Online Now Jan 18, 2011 at 7:28 AM

      We stayed at the Hostal Alameda several times in the early - mid nineties.
      It was owned and run by a lovely Spanish family but on our last visit we were informed the Father had passed away. We have the most wonderful memories of our stays there. The spanish staff were always curteous and helpful despite any language barriers. The views out to the Atlas mountains are stunning. I found Tarifa to be a delightful relaxing place - noisy yes, but hey the whole of Spain is noisy that's what it's about! Does anyone know who owns the Alameda now? and is the restaurant still underneath the accommodation? I hope to go back soon to the town that has stayed in my heart....

      A few questions to make the best of short stay in Tarifa

      by orangecrab Online Now Jun 24, 2010 at 8:34 PM

      hello, I'll be in Tarifa in late July and am interested to go on a whale watching trip. As I'll only be there only from 23 Jul (aftnn) - 25 July (morn) before departing for Tangier, I'd like to make sure that I make the right decisions on the following:

      1. Have found 3 organisations: Avda, FIRMM and Turmares. Anyone knows which is best?
      2. All these org seem to be near the harbour. The lodging I booked was Tarik (Address: San Sebastian 34, Tarifa , 11380, Spain) which is near the beach. The distance between them seem rather far from google maps. What is the best way to get to the harbour from Tarik?

      3. Otherwise, should I look for new lodging? I can still cancel the booking without charge. If so, what is the best place to stay (affordable too)?

      Would greatly appreciate any help!

They used to be keen campers, but as they are getting on a bit now they are looking for somewhere to stay in the Tarifa area. Not an apartment as they don't want to be in amongst it all, and I think the Tarifa area campsites will be a bit lively for them. Anyone got any ideas please - the plan is that as I don´t live too far away I can do a quick reccie for them.
