... of course the famous Ape dens, which is basically where the famous monkeys hang out.
The weather took a turn for the worst and a large black cloud decided to hang around the rock all day, but with hindsight it has continued to worsen with rain everywhere we have been the last few days (now Wednesday, when I am writing this). I still have pictures of when I was in Gibraltar over 30 years ago, with my parents, so can vouch that it is sunny in Gibraltar sometimes though ...
... vinegar. Dear Jane I do not know what has happened to the puppy yet as Aunty Helen is back in England until tonight so we have not been back to the dogs home. Granny, cat pictures are coming. Mary, glad you are learning new stuff with us. Iain - we went for a walk with uncle Steve yesterday to check the level of the water fin the tank for his area's houses. We measured the water level and it needed ...
... if they saw a monkey it would be a real treat – not that there would be heaps of them and they would be climbing all over the cars etc!
Once we parked – and gave Kate the lecture that she shouldn't touch or feed them – we headed off on our walking tour of the rock. Inside is an incredible cave with some very impressive stalactites and stalagmites. Yes – another bloody cave!
... in the morning and spending 4-5 hours hiking meant I was absolutely starved. I headed for the first fish and chips place I could find...since I was in a British territory after all. I found one with outdoor seating, and settled in with my nook and a pint of beer to do some reading while I ate. The fish was absolutely amazing....if I ever said that Dublin fish and chips was great, they are nothing compared to fish and chips right from the ...
This morning we slept in nice and late. Mom and Leslie went and found a bakery and got us some fresh bread to have for breakfast. It was good. Then we just hung around for a while. Mom and I went to find the Movistar place to put more money on the phone, and then found the internet café to upload the last two blogs. Then we came back here to find Anna just waking up, Leslie hanging out by the pool, and Madison at the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Estepona-Costa del Sol
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
