So, I can report that the rain in Spain does not stay mainly on the plain. We are in the centre of an impressive storm this morning. Saves watering the plants though.
I can report that J is gearing up to do an entry but don't hold your breath.
Meanwhile here are a few random photos.
... and got directions from there. I have to say McDonalds has been a little haven on this trip, wherever I go I can generally find a maccydees with Wifi, order a coffee and connect up to find places to stay or visit. I’m still not going to eat their food though!
It was great to see the guys again especially as we got to know each other a little better, they are a really cool couple, I mean Fonzie cool! Friendly, intelligent, warm, funny and ...
... They have pretty much hiked the entire US and and much of Germany. Richard RUNS 8ks every morning. He did that prior to our first walk which was 8ks along a river. It wasn't too hard but probably the longest I have ever walked at once. Paul dropped us at one end and met us at the other. The cafe at the end of the walk was meant to provide us with sustenance but being typically Spanish just decided to close. So we had a beer and packets of chips at ...
... museum but once is enough for me, so I left them to it and hopped on a bus home.
I’m sorry to say it Sue but Thursday mornings in that sluice won’t seem quite as exciting now...
* Excuse the formality but I seem to know a lot of excellent nurses named Sue.
Hmmm, interesting. I feel a research paper coming on...
... for everything
that we did in Torremolinos. We were about a 10 minute walk from the
beach and we had the greatest kebab place just 3 minutes down the way.
For those of you in America…. kebabs here are like gyros in the states.
They are by far my favorite food here and I have yet to have one in
Madrid :/ Hotel Natali had a buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner
everyday that included lots of ham in every meal. It is amazing to me ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Roc Hotel Flamingo Torremolinos
Nice, simple hotel
Good location. Very simple hotel-no hair dryer, all tv chanels are in spanish, reception personal was not very usefull answering guestions about area or tours. Anyway-i did enjoy staying there-i guess-you get what you pay for (good price).
moved here as the hotel we booked was full! was given full board which was a bonus! the food was great and plenty of it! wine and sangria was plentiful and we took full advantage. romms were clean and comfy with a big balcony. the lifts were fun and took you to every floor apart from the one you wanted to go to! Hotel was well placed for the bars only 5 mins walk. lots of room to sun bathe but the loungers were very uncomfortable. pool was clean and not too cold!
We stayed here in May 2006 and found the hotel OK. Location for the shops was good but the beach is about 15 mins away. The snacks for the AI guests were a plate of crisps or a ham or cheese sandwich. Rooms were clean, food was OK and lots of sun beds. Entertainment was poor as they catered more for the Spanish guests who out numbered everyone else.
We called in to the Gregor Mar hotel one night to play bingo what a RIP OFF. 1 Euro per book but the winners only got a PRIZE which was a Tee shirt and a piece of tat. The Hotel must be making a fortune collecting hundreds of Euros and paying out 10 - 20 euros.
We may go back to the Flamingo again.
Just come back after 2 weeks at the Flamingo. We went with some feelings of trepidation after reading some of the reviews on this hotel. However, we had stayed at the Lago Rojo, one of its sister hotels, and had enjoyed it. We were pleased with the location, smack in the centre of the town and convenient for buses, trains and taxis, none of which were more than 200 yards from the hotel. This was a must as my wife has walking difficulties.
Lors de mon sejour dans cet hotel plusieurs personnes
malades . Moi même ayant eu une intoxication alimentaire sérieuse avec perte de connaissance .
Cela était dû au problème électrique des chauffe - plats qui disjonctaient plusieurs fois par jours , nous offrant des plats tièdes voir froids.
Ce problème n'a nullement inquiété le directeur .
Résultat 10 jours plus tard j'ai toujours les intestins détraqués. Je ne remettrais plus les pieds dans cet hôtel.
Value for money
reviewer mick lancing, w.sussex.
went for a short break 3 nts, good accm beds a bit firm, food good and plenty of it hot&cold choices. entertainment ok lots of spanish people who seem to drink very little, but take up all the room in the bar at night. lifts ok but no good if going when extra busy.
would give this 3* hotel an 8/10.
would go again, not much for kids this time of year.
Living just 20 minutes away from the eastern Costa del Sol, but in the heart of the countryside, we often like to get away to the coast for a couple of nights; Torremolinos, being just an hours drive, is somewhere we have visited several times previously.
The hotel is bautifully clean and the staff mostly friendly but the three small lifts are woefully inadequate. There was a large contingency of Spanish pensioners staying at the time we were there and they tended to do the Spanish thing. They would not wait for anyone to get out before they sharpened their elbows and barged in. We were on the 7th Floor and especially at mealtimes we sometimes had to wait up to 15 minutes for a lift to the restaurant floor.
I have stayed in this hotel twice in the past and have booked yet again for a six night stay in mid-March. This is a typical mass tourist/package tour hotel. The rooms are good, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is buffet style and you can eat as much as you like. It is in the town centre, three minutes walk from the railway station. Can be booked on the internet through various booking agent web sites. Look at all the sites, as they can vary considerably in price for the same accommodation. It can be booked on a room only, b and b, half board or full board basis. Overall it is very good value, but don't expect the Ritz.
