... motorcycle (and mobile home) travellers. Bob and Sini had planned a ride out to and around the White Villages of the Andalusian Mountains and very kindly invited me along. We set off the following morning with Bob riding lead and Sini navigating.
The ride up to our first coffee stop was challenging with spectacular views along a winding mountain road gaining height steadily, after a really poor overtaking manoeuvre I led the final few minutes to ...
I approached the three day hiking trip through some of the mountain national parks of Andalucia with much trepidation after meeting our guide, 30 something super fit Paul. He is a full on, real deal rock climber/mountaineer who also abseils, white water rafts and jumps out of planes when he runs out of energy. In his spare time he does volunteer work inserting and maintaining all the bolts and hook things drilled into the rock faces which prevent ...

It was great to catch up with both Sue and her lovely sister, Jane. Co-incidentally they had booked a week in Mijas for the week after J and I arrived. This was perfectly timed for our weekly chat.
So we had a fun few hours meandering around the cobbled streets of Malaga Old Town. We strolled around Plaza ...

We've managed to get through a number of books during this trip. I'm now into 'The Bronte Story' (by Margaret Lane), Rob's cantering through 'Galahad at Blandings' (by P G Wodehouse) - and he's doing quite a bit of chuckling too!

Historical Traveler Reviews El Oceano Beach Hotel Marbella
A lovely hotel,
with many fine points. The restaurant and food are both excellent but on a couple of occasions spoilt by the volume of the live music which almost made conversation impossible. The pool area and bar snacks are great but unfortunately again the music was far too loud and people were complaining.
Overall a great find and one which we will be visiting again not least because of the wonderful staff.
We stayed in El Oceano for our wedding/honeymoon in June 2006.(we were getting married in the area) We were a little disappointed when we saw the front of the hotel as the website looked so fantastic but once we got inside we realised that all the beauty of this hotel is to the back, and everything did look just like you see it on the Internet!
This hotel is beautiful and I'm sure that if you go you will think so too. The hotel is quaint, clean and incredibly tranquil. The staff are lovely everytime I come here whether just eating or staying there. You will not get a nicer Sunday Lunch anywhere on the coast and all the other food is of superb quality ALWAYS! If you dont mind paying that little extra to stay somewhere that oozes charm and sophistication the the El Oceano Beach Hotel is the place to stay!
Stayed here in june 06 , while the rooms were clean and the pool area is nice, the staff could have been more friendly. Ate in the hotels resteraunt and was served a raw uncleaned prawn, when I complained ,the waiter was not too bothered he said there would be no charge for my raw prawns! That was very nice!
At over 300 euro a night with dinner this hotel is way over priced and to add insult you have to pay a 5 euro supplement , per person if you want a cooked english breakfast. Also 8.50 for a brandy in hotel bar and it wasnt the usual generous spanish measure I would give this place a wide berth much better value further down the coast. Shame This hotel could be great with very little effort on the managements behalf.But they have a couldnt care less attitude.
We stayed at El Oceano for just under a week last September. We stayed in the Mijas Hotel before we went down to the coast, which was absolutely lovely, so when we arrived at El Oceano it was rather disappointing. It's on the beach but with a motorway on the other side. It's in a very quiet location and there's no where close by to have a drink or a nice meal, so unless you're driving or getting on the bus, you're pretty much stuck there.
The hotel itself is stunning - particularly the location. Sitting outside, overlooking the sea, it is peaceful and beautiful. The room was spacious and comfortable and well equipped. The food is great - very international, good selection and beautifully presented: even the fruit and yoghurt at breakfast are served in cocktail glasses. The entertainment raises a smile...
Stayed at the El Oceano in May last year.
We visited El Oceano for a couple of nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. Although we arrived (very!) late, we were pleasantly welcomed and an appointment was made for a repair to my false nail - for the day after next as the nail technician didn't work the following day, which was fine by me. By the time we reached our jacuzzi suite (which wasn't as large as we expected - and no candles supplied LOL), the phone rang and I was advised that the technician would come in to the hotel next day, just for me. This was 11.30 at night!
