... show up at the appointed time and enjoy the fellowship of some very nice people.
On the last two Wednesdays we tackled a couple of easy/moderate routes, one a good climb, the other a long (19kms) walk on a beautiful abandoned railway bed.
Here are the descriptions that Bill shares with the group in advance of the walks:
... Volvo in Spain.
It is much harder to live here without a car, although there is a great tram system a few hundred meters from our home, it only travels the coastline so other destinations are difficult. And the bus system is less frequent and of course not as widespread as the Swedish system.
So...the "carless" Nilbrinks now own a Volvo. We were working with a broker to purchase a ...
... place called Oliva parked up just behind the sand dunes and no high rise in sight. Flat enough for us to go on some good bike rides. This week we have experienced 25 degrees and 14 degrees which is at least better than the UK and the floods there!
not many photos but that will change once I've got used to this iPad thing and sorted out the map pin
With all of our business done in Stockholm, we were able to go to El Campello for awhile! We were excited to return to our seaside apartment. The grey days in Stockholm were starting to take their toll.
Norwegian Air offers great schedules to Alicante and we were happy to fly out on Thursday morning. We had a 2 hour layover in Copenhagen and arrived at our destination at 15:30. A long wait for luggage and the slow service at the Hertz counter dulled ...
Alicante was a nice way to end our time in Spain. After we got a wheel chair sorted out we walked down to see the castle (I want to say it was called St. Helena but I'm not positive) and then hit the boardwalk near the sea. It was pretty cold and deserted down there but we did stumble on a huge pirate ship/bar that made Mike very happy (see picture of him on a throne). The trip to the castle also got us thinking that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Madeira Centro Benidorm
We have stayed in Madera Centro in mid July 2006 for two weeks. We highly recommend this hotel as it's one of the best places to stay in Benidorm.
Hotel madeira centro
madeira centro hotel was excellant staff were very nice and helpfull the rooms were a go od size and very clean rooms were cleaned evey day pool was small but nice they had a spa tub which i thought was agood idea i loved it it was very central the only thing i did not like was the food as there was a lot of fish on the menu and the dishes that were out we did not know what they were as it had no discription to what it was that was the only thing i can say wrong about the hotel
Just back two days from the Madeira Centro (June 2006) and found this Hotel to be of a very high standard, we have been to 4 star hotels before but found this the best by far.
Great hotel perfect location
Had a five day break last year hotel was fantastic very clean excellent location, reception staff very helpfull.
Try the montesol restaurant on top floor well worth a visit, have already booked my 2006 holiday.
Just returned from staying at the Medeira centre hotel this week end. The hotel is beautiful and very modern.The rooms are very clean but not as big as the rooms at the Marina . Fantastic views over benidorm and a great sun trap as the rooms all face the sun all day.However the food to be honest was rubbish apart from the breakfast which were lovely.We have all stayed in many hotels in benidorm including the marina,The Pueblo and the Rosamar, all several times. The food at the medeira did not come any where near the others. There was very little choice unless you are a big fish fan. Only ever one hot meat dish per meal time compared to several fish dishes. On several occassions the only meat dish on offer was Bulls tail which resembled 6" sections of human spinal cord in gravy , I jest not! Really not nice at all to see let alone eat. Loads and loads of deep fried frozen food including fish fingers , chicken nougats and fritters most meal times. Not really what i would call 4* food at all. This is a real pity 'cos the hotel is good and the location is great for the beach and the old town which is vibrant at night. We only popped our heads in to the concert lounge but it was alwasy the same old spanish dancing every night. There might have been more on offer in there but we didnt see it posted. If your going to stay at this hotel then i hope you find it different as we did give this feed back to the hotel directly, just be prepared though. To end on a more positive note though, the staff were very friendly and helpfull and the dining room staff were very efficient and polite.
We have just returned from two weeks at the Maderia Centro on oct 14. We had read the previous reviews and were looking forward to a really good holiday at this hotel, how disappointed we were. The rooms were spacious and very clean, as was the hotel in general. We were on the thirteenth floor and had excellent views over Benidorm. The pool area has fifty sunbeds for a hotel with twentyone floors, not a problem, as its in shade from the building opposite for the main sunbathing hours of the day between twelve and three o"clock. The rest of the time will be spent moving around the pool area with your sunbed chasing the sun, everyone else goes to the beach!. We arrived on a friday and this is the Gala night in the restaurant which was excellent, but after that it was downhill. The food was pre-packed convienence food and while the quality was good the choice was limited, several fish dishes every night without fail became more than a joke. On several occasions we had to eat out, and if you have children there was little if no choice for them, except chips. There are five lifts in this hotel including a panoramic one, take everything you need when you leave your room as the wait for the lift at peak times (meals ect) will drive you crazy. There is no entertainment to speak of, but with so much on offer outside its not a problem. In summarising, this hotels location cannot be beaten, and if you are really not fussy about the kind of food you eat then its the place for you. We would not return as our money would be better spent elsewhere.
Hotel madeira centro
returned from the hotel 22 sept. My wife and I were delighted with all aspects of this place lovely and clean good size rooms . the outdoor pool is more for cooling of than swimming but the up side is it stops the lilos and jumpers. I wouldnt recomend for a family other than couples with very young children but for couples who like a good quality hotel two minutes from the beach and quality shops, excellent We will certainly return to this hotel
i tried to post a review about this hotel last year but it was not available.the madeira centre is without doubt one of the best hotels in benidorm.it is in a great location,ideal for those with walking difficulties.it is as others have said,close to the beach and the old town.every room is facing the sea.the standards are extremely high in all aspects of the hotel.it is reasonably priced in the direct brochure and we have booked again for this july.the only downside is that it is not in the direct brochure for 2006 as i have already tried to book it.
Just returned from the madeira centro, Benidorm, we had a weeks stay here and enjoyed everyminute, the hotel is situated near the triangle, turn right on leaving the hotel and your in the old town with great shops, bars and wonderful tapas bars, tapas alley is a must. Turn left and with in a few minutes your into the new town, where there are tons of bars, some having excellent entertainment, be it singers, comedians, shows, theres something for everyone, Beach is about 2 mins away by foot,
Should be in the top 10
Just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. We stayed on half board basis which includes breakfast and either evening meal or lunch, it's entirely up to you. All meals are buffet style with a wide range of hot and cold dishes.The rooms are very clean and spacious with individual climate control ours had 2 very comfortable double beds. All balconies are South or West facing, the higher floors have great views over Benidorm and the bay. The staff were very freindly and helpfull, location is ideal, especially for disabled, being close to the beach on the levante side of the "old town".The only complaint we had was the entertainment at night was pretty basic, and some road works outside the main entrace which is supposed to be ongoing until June.
