Vi gick upp vid 9 och fick sedan i oss en stadig frukost på hotellet. Sedan gick vi till den närliggande djurparken Oceanografic. Entreavgiften var lite hög, cirka 250kr per vuxen men det var det nog värt. Inne på parken fick vi se akvarium som representerade olika hav i världen, fåglar, sälar och delfiner etc.
Efter parken gick vi och åt …
Vi checkade ut vid 11 och gick sedan till tågstationen för att hyra bil som skulle ta oss till Valencia. Det blev en Opel med GPS på sixt och allt gick på ca 2700kr, det som kostade mest var försäkringar och att vi ska lämna tillbaks bilen i Alicante. Tack vare GPS så kunde vi någorlunda säkert ta oss ut från Barcelona.

... I love seeing how they lay these types of things out. When I was a kid I used to catch everything possible on the farm from snakes to frogs to crayfish to turtles and I loved not just exploring their worlds but I would also try and make little terrariums like their habitats to keep them in.

Located inside a big shopping mall it was a little tricky to find the main reception. But the room is very nice for the cash spent! I have been at many hotels around the world but I can recommend this one for sure!
Great location, around 35 min walking distance to the beach (that is incredible large at this time of year, august). If you want to find some time to do some shopping you will surely get it at this hotel since it is located on top of one!
If you are interested in marine animals and birds there is oceanografic very close to the hotel.
Internet connection is available and is pretty ok.
As usual no English TV channels are available/working.
