The Golden Walk

A travel blog entry by margogoes

On Sunday we had planned a very ambitious walk to Sierra de Bernia. Unfortunately the forecast of heavy rain and limited visibility in that area made this a poor choice so our ever-thoughtful leaders suggested something a little closer to home which could be aborted if the conditions deteriorated.

We met at our local police station to carpool to the start of the walk. It was a short 15 minute drive out of El Campello to Barranc dels Cocons and the Mines de ...

... beehive of activity and even more congested on Saturdays! We stopped outside E Candela Espi, a small kiosk selling the local nougats, especially enjoyed by Alicantans at Christmas! There were three different types served and everyone enjoyed sampling these sweet almond treats.

Just around the corner from the market we entered a shop selling salted fish products. Another favorite of locals, these items are considered delicacies. The ...

Hiking on the Playa

On Wednesdays we usually walk with our hiking group in the mountains. Most walks are rated Easy/Moderate and we find them very enjoyable....BUT today's walk was described as MODERATE, with some tricky bits! Well, the tricky bits are the type we like to avoid, going up a steep grade clinging to a rope railing really isn't our cup of tea.

But we didn't let that stop us from considering some hiking closer to home. We were ...

Thanks to an email from our dear Ulla I realized I haven't written a blog in almost a month.

Because we've been really busy I haven't managed to sit down to write anything. But I'll try to take this opportunity to bring you up-to-date. I actually had to look at my calendar to keep track of what beens going on.

We continue to hike in the mountains, usually once a week with friends from the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Marina Benidorm

    Very nice central hotel

    from

    My family stayed at the Marine Hotel on a half board basis. I really enjoyed my stay at this hote. It is a very nice, central hotel, just a 5 minute walk from the bus station and right in the centre a Lavente Beach. I strongly recommend this hotel to your travellers.

    If travelling from the airport by bus, you can walk to the hotel from the bus station.

    Good Hotel and Bad Food

    Good Hotel, Bad Food

    Good hotel bad bad food

    from

    one of the best hotels in benidorm but the food defenetly one of the worst staff go out their way if their is a tip in it for them exchange rates in the hotel are a comlete rip of towels left out all night to get a sun lounger in the morning but when you go to the pool no one on them in one of the best positions right in the centre of levante get the food and the exchange rates right and we would stop their again but get the staff to smile once in a while without giving them a tip to do it ?

    Never again

    from

    The hotel itself was very nice. We found the staff in general a bit stand offish. Oh my god The food it was worse than pigs slop. We found breakfast inedible. Dinner was a minefield trying to get anything to take away the hunger pangs. In desperation i took a slice of pizza from the kids section only to be humiliated by the kitchen manager marching across to my table and scolding me like a chils infront of the full dining room. I found myself unapolagetic for my crime. By the fifth night we ate out. There is no curtesy room for guests to use and the manager has a couldn't care less attitude. The best feature abouth this hotel was the location but i'd never re-visit unless they introdced self catering or drastically change their kitchen staff which has not happened according to other reviews.

    Do you want electocuting?

    from

    I agree with "Do you like hospital food". The food is poor,the entertainment is poor and consists of people shouting at you with microphones and records to dance to.In the bathroom they have wired the electric hairdrier in permanently so that you can dry your hair over the sink and face the mirror.This means that if you spilled a little water on the marble floor while washing your hair you cold slip!! To save yourself you might grab hold of the taps , at the same time the hairdrier would drop into the water and you would FRY!!!......................... Try the hairdressing salon downstairs,the stylist seems to have had a personality bypass and is openly hostile to non Spanish

    Do you like hospital food

    from

    The hotel is a wonderful sight,rising marble pillars and marble floors everywhere. However,it takes more than that to gain a good reputation. We found the food TERIBLE,in the two weeks we were there this is what we found:-Breakfast..the bacon was strips of 1 inch streaky smoked bacon,the tomatoes were whole baked unseasoned and tarty to taste,(no tinned tomatoes)Lunch or Dinner..We tried Ribs ,they were so over cooked it was hard to tell the meat from the bone, Cooked turkey was so dehydrated we could barely cut it with a knife(could double as shoe leather). One dish loked particularly tastey..it was chunks of beef in gravy,after tasting the meat i couldnt swallow..IT WAS OFF my wife confirmed. The saving grace was the soups..these were exellent,as were the deserts.Salt doesnt seem to be have used in the cooking so if you like hospital food you will like it.Most days we never looked forward to meals and at times went to local bars for breakfast and other meals.Other points...one of the lifts was out of order all the time we were there.One night someone tried to get into our room at 1130 pm. We reported this in the morning to the reception but they showed no intrest.Later that day we noticed jemmy marks around the lock area of the door so we tried again to intrest the people at reception desk,only to find that people who previously answered our questions and changed our money were now unable to understand English.Regards all, Jim and family

    The best in benidorm

    from

    We have stayed in the marina hotel several times and it never loses it's charm. It very clean and the food excellent. One of the great things i personally like about the Marina are it's rooms. There is a seperate door to the bedroom after the bathroom which means you can your "do not disturb" sign on your bedroom door but the maid can still clean the bathroom and change your towels without disturbing you. This means you can have a lay in after a late night out in the old town!!

    Loved it

    from

    i stayed at hotel marina years ago,1985.i had a brilliant time,i loved every minute.this is a very large hotel, clean large pool entertaiment was great.going to marmaris this year,but looking for cheap deals to benidorm for 2004.

    Very helpful and caring staff

    from

    I fell ill with Gastro Enteritis on the last day of my holiday whilst staying at the Marina - nothing to do with the hotel. My wife was left by herself and was without any support from the (Cosmos) rep and the travel insurance compay was a waste of time. The hotel manager was extreemly good in organising accomodation and food for my wife until I came out of hospital. He too had enormouse problems getting anything but promises and lies out of the travel insurance company but accepted my wife's promises of getting the insurance company to get things organised. Use this hotel - repay their assistance please!

    Perfect first visit

    from

    First visit to Benidorm was a resounding success. I have always shied away from Benidorm because of the reputation of lager louts. Depending on season not too many. Hotel Marina is very beautiful and clean. The food varied and tasty. The rooms are kept really clean and shiny. Any request made to reception dealt with immediately. Reception areas are very comfortable. Many wedding receptions held here so if on a low floor it could be a bit noisy in early hours. All in all a very pleasant holiday. Will definately be making a return visit.
