Oops! We got locked out!

A travel blog entry by europepilgrims


... his day off -- to tell us the same thing the guard told us! Now, Robert often calls Rosemarie "Lucy" because she gets us into adventures as Lucy did with Ricky. This time, her antics paid off. We asked for a ladder that would reach our balcony and prayed that the lock on the second sliding glass door hadn't caught. Our prayers were answered -- the handy man scrambled up the ladder and got our door opened! Since he saved ...

The Journey to the Start: Gib to Cabo Trafalgar

A travel blog entry by grahamgkd


The bike came off the flight unscathed. We reassembled it, wasted some time trying to post the bike bag home & then binned it and finally got away from Gibraltar at about 14:30. Tough day, quite hilly and hot but better and faster for the latter half. We start the ride proper tomorrow. We should feel a bit more sprightly without the 03:15 ...

... to keep us up to date with the all site's happenings. Does this mean we are 'in'?

Up into the hills we drove past large cactus hedges intertwined with bushes and olive trees. We retraced the path we took this time last week - but now the sky was a glorious blue and everything looked much brighter. Further on past Benalup the road gets narrow and has no road markings, and on either ...

A day on the Rock!

A travel blog entry by emtashval


So it was back on the road for us as we were well rested from the weekend. Gibraltar was our next stop. I had read you should park outside and walk in as security can be tedious for cars. Good thing because the car lineups were long,and walking was fast as parking was close.
Found the shops and the restaurants more expensive but totally enjoyed the day. Yet again an amazing Site,well worth the effort, and the kids enjoyed the monkeys!

A long flight

... reply though as my text's arn't free!!!! I am also assuming it works. ( no texts yet)

Well walked around the rock. Place a bit bigger than i thought. 5km long and 1km wide. Must have walked 10km + but worth it. Even walked through the 'car only' tunnel so that I could say I have walked around the rock. Only 500 mts long so didn't have to suffer the fumes for too long ( and press myself ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Estepona-Costa del Sol

    Crownw Plaza Hotel - Estepona


    I had reservations about staying in this hotel from the reviews I had read prior to going there - but all these were unwarranted. From the moment my wife and I arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by one of the receptionist staff - Claudia. She was extremely helpful as we had arrived late in the evening at 21.00 hrs approx. The room we were given was spotlessly clean and one of the most comfortable double hotel beds I have slept on.

    Sheer Luxury!!!


    We spent 5 lovely days in this very chique hotel, the rooms are enormous and realy well kitted out. the pool area is great with lifeguard and smashing towels/comfy loungers.

    Chill out bar lives up to its name although nothing is any trouble to the freindly staff. The y managed to rustle up a delicious meal just after midnight on our arrival.

    Shanghai Express restaurant is a superb experience,

    we cant wait to go back!!!

    We LOVE this hotel


    From the moment we walked into the the hotel and were greeted by the warm and friendly desk staff, our fantastic stay began. Claudia at the front desk was efficient, accommodating and extremely pleasant as we checked in. Our deluxe size room was very clean and beautifully designed, with a large balcony facing the sea. Yes, this hotel has a 'sea' view, but it is not on the water. Yet this did not diminish how much we loved this place. The pool was so serene and relaxing, we did not miss the beach at all. The extraordinary buffet breakfast is included in the cost of the room. There is nothing we could list that is not on the buffet, and it was excellent. Plus the wait staff was all smiles and made us feel very much at home. We could not believe our eyes when we read the two previous reviews here. We have extended our one day stay to three because we are so satisfied. We highly recommend this place to anyone - for this quality of hotel, the cost is beyond reasonable.

    Ignore the early reviews, this is now a cracking hotel


    We too were a little concerned following the early reviews of the hotel, but we were very very happy with our week at the Crowne Plaza.

    Great Hotel


    Lovely hotel. Food is great, especially breakfast when omelettes etc are cooked just for you. The staff are so friendly. We had our daughter and grandchildren with us so the rooms got a bit messy but every morning when we came back to our rooms after breakfast, our rooms were spotless, they even cleaned the baby's bottles if they were left in the bathroom. That is what I call service. Lifeguards are always keeping a watch on the children in the pool so felt very safe. In all a lovely place to stay.

    Pleasant surprise


    Having read 3 very unfavourable reviews of the Crowne Plaza Estepona before travelling in mid July, we were somewhat nervous re. perceptions of cleanliness, facilities etc. as portrayed by the reviewers. We need not have been concerned, however, since we were more than impressed with the hotel in general, in particular with our room (we were upgraded to a junior suite!) and also with the pool area and with the very friendly, welcoming staff. While it is true to say that we were disappointed that the Beach Club was not yet open and the gardens are somewhat small, given the size of the hotel, we felt this was offset by the luxurious rooms (both bedrooms and public areas) which, in our opinion were spotless. There are 2 pool areas, one of which got quite crowded, the other we had to ourselves on several occasions. Staff were always pleasant and courteous, particularly Claudia of Guest Relations. In my opinion the Crowne Plaza Estepona equals and even surpasses other 5 star hotels in which we have stayed in Cyprus, Egypt and Mauritius.

    Unreasonable expectations


    I do not post internet reviews even though we rely on Trip Advisor but in this case I feel compelled to redress the image of this hotel based on negative reviews from 3 travelers.

    Big disappointment!


    The beach club did not exist yet. Reception staff told us, photos of the beach club shown in catalogues are photo-shop work, it would not open before August/September 2006 - maybe even 2007. We found our room a couple of times dirty, our breakfast was small and boring.

    Bad service, no beach, not 5-star


    Our stay at the hotel was for 7 nights. First bad impression was at checkin: sorry, no beach and no beach restaurant - not ready now. bad service except breakfast-team.

    dirty floor in our room, black hairs on the bidet (for the hole week). we seached for the beach club building site - you can't find it's not existing. pool opens at 10.00 am!!!! (cleaning at 9.30)

    Our last bad experience was at the very beautyful hotel-spa: massage was great (125 € / 60 min), but the room was too cool from air conditioned. the spa and the rooms are the only "desighotel-part" of the hotel.

    Breakfast was okay with a wide variety of choices at the buffet and a helpful wait staff.

    Do NOT stay here! No Beach, Bad Service, Building Site


    we stayed there 5 nights. our bathroom was dirty at arrival and there was old food in the minibar. the rating *****(5) is only a joke. the worst 5 starhotel i ever stayed. the hotel is new but the service is maximum 3 star. the hotel opend 4 months later, exactly 1. june.
