... one of the group of fish would face vertically as if it were looking at me and then as I looked at them, it swam off with the others. This happened a few times. For dinner, I had the pizza leftovers from the other night and made some garlic bread and a sald to go with it. I convinced Sverre to try a pre-made Spanish toritilla from the supermarket which he thankfully enjoyed. The next morning (Saturday), Sverre went in search of a dry cleaner and I started organising where ...
... 1.5 hours on the bike so I was proper grumpy after taking a few wrong turns. The bike was actually more comfortable for my legs compared to Sverre´s since my knees were not as sharp angled. My butt was rather numb however so I was glad to be able to get off the bike and walk around. Once the rack was fitted, we headed to a place right in Valencia to get the many USB ports that Sverre needed for his millions of electronics. It turned out though that ...
... on another Churros mission so we ended up at a placed called Geographic. I really don't know why it was called that, it seemed like more of a sports bar than anything - with tennis, F1, and soccer all being displayed on giant TV screens. This particular strip, along the sandy beach, is really the tourist street of Javea, where all the British go for a holiday. I've often said that Bali is a beautiful island entirely ruined by obnoxious Australians, well ...
So a week after Dads Wedding to Sarah in Mayo, We flew out to Alicante for 2 weeks. Me, Dad, Sarah, Jason and Ben. My first proper sun holiday, I'd only been to London before that. We stayed in an apartment in Orihuella Costa, La Florida. Quite but nice. We met a guy called Fran, who lived there and was in charge of the pool. He called me a seagull the first day I went to get into the pool cause I ...
... fields, and posted our parcels. At least that was a success! This afternoon Jess and I have spent planning our accommodation and so on. Originally I was going to go around the south coast, visit Portugal, then north to France - but it's a 2 day trip to Portugal, then a 2 day trip back. We've spent quite a while in Spain already, longer than expected, and I'm eager to get to the rest of Europe so I think I might follow Jess' lead and head direct to Barcelona then onto ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Camposol Benidorm
I organised a Group Booking at the hotel, there was 17 girls on the trip we are called "Fat Friends", and are from South Wales. We had the best times of our lives, we had an absolute ball.
Yes the hotel was basic, but the hotel was absolutely spotless. Cleaned daily, including fresh towells and fresh bedding.
The Breakfast was a typical "Continental Breakfast", which includes the usual Bread Rolls, Ham, Cheese, Eggs & Bacon, Orange Juice, Tea, Coffee etc.
We met up with a great group of guys who were absolutely brilliant company, and us girls can't wait to book up again next year. We are definately booking Hotel Camposol next year.
I have just come home from a Hen party weekend at the camposol, the rooms were very basic but also very clean, we had maid service every day with clean towels and beds made.
Hotel Camposol was a basic hotel we stayed there in August with our 2 kids, we had 4 beds in one room. The room was air conditioned thank God, was cleaned every day, the pool was by far the best bit, small but shaded a welcome relief from the intense afternoon heat.
Poor , never again
very very very basic, worst room and hotel to stay, pool was small and if you do decide to stay the sun doesnt come until after lunch, the bar staff where nice and pleasent but reception where grumpy miserabile, not far from beach so youd better stay there after your dinner,, id say you could get much better for money ,we where charged 63euro per nite and the breakfast for worse ever so had to eat 3 times per day out,, ENTER AT OWN RISK,
Hotel fine for £20 a night. Slight smell at first from cleaning materials but soon disappeared. Clean comfortable room, bed linen and towells changed daily. Balcony rooms fine.Air con, TV, only Spanish though. No sign of any yobs, great nights sleep. Spanish pensioners were fine. Lift not held together by selotape, fine if you are not a child jumping up and down all the time. No stale rolls and coffee but crusty rolls with a selection of eggs, bacon, salami, mushrooms, toms, cheese, ham, spam ,cereals, juices, pastries, fruit for breakfast, much better than i thought after previous reviews!! Pool small but clean, sunny only late pm. Hotel caters mainly for Spanish so dont expect British package holiday welcome/ knees up every night. Plenty entertainment locally. Waiteresses/ staff work very hard. Good position 5 mins from beach. As Basil Fawlty said, When you look out of a Torquay hotel window, dont expect to see the leaning tower of Pisa, Herds of Wilderbeasts racing across the Serengeti!! You get what you pay for ie. a 2 star hotel not the Ritz!!
What can I say... we arrived to be given to keys to a cupboard, it was an internal room with a window looking out onto an internal tunnel (for want of a better word), it smelt frusty! and had two campbeds in it, there was no plug in the bedroom, has to use plug in the bathroom - you had to practically stand in the bath to open the door to get out. Despite the smell the rooms were clean, but basic is not the word it felt like a prison cell had we been staying for longer than 3 nights would have checked out straight away. It was full of Spainish pensioners and the atmosphere left alot to be desired - bar staff and maids we friendly enough - however reception staff were awful. The highlight of the hotel for us was watching a young British lad repeatedly jump in the pool and drown a couple of old spainish dragons with water...it was fab ... did consider joining him....
Worst hotel I have ever booked online. Taken over by large groups of yobs - the manager had ran off & left the staff to try and cope. They closed up shop at midnight (or often before) to avoid trouble - leaving sensible residents to be woken usually at 2am AND 4am AND 6am by large drunken groups bouncing round the hotel. I really would advise you to stay just about anywhere but here. I have stayed in very basic accommodation sometimes noisy without problem but this really was the pits!
Worst Hotel I have ever stayed in.
Smelly rooms. Staff unhelpful food atrocious.
Beds Broken. Floor of the lift was stuck down with tape.
Breakfast was a bread roll and a cup of tea.
Evening Meal was cold and unappetising salad was limp obviously old.
Sweets were ice cream and anything left from lunch and the night before.
Swimmimg pool never used because it never got any sun.
Every Meal we had to eat out.
My Husband and I have just returned from this Hotel, we stayed 2 weeks. the first impression was how clean and bright the rooms were. Before we went, we read reviews saying the rooms were sparse? we found them quite ample for our needs.
hotel really clean.Food OK if you like salad and spanish food.Hotel spoilt by yobs who came in at 6am shouting and breaking glasses. would recommend but not in Aiugust when yobs are about. Hotel deserves better clientel
