... with you at 1am helping you work illegally ha.
Not long after they all come back, we watched this one guy very patiently lay out heaps of pairs of sunnies on all their cases, it took him so long. We wondered if the cops would come back again..it would be pretty devastating to have to chuck all your hard work into the sheet as soon as you had got it set up. (In Madrid we saw the guys with sunnies and they had like slits in the sheet so the sunnies all stayed in place when you ...
From Valencia I took a train to Malaga, on the south coast of Spain. There I met up with a mate from school, Elliott, and a few of his mates – Danesh, Danny and Gabriel. We had rented an apartment for the week for feria – Malaga's annual festival. Malaga is quite nice, but the festival itself is a joke. There is no main event/ceremony unifying the celebrations. Day ...
... tourist deaths and hasn't re opened despite a €7 million grant in 2006. We watch as some climbers make their way along what is left of it. John cringes. Next day we visit the national park El Torcal. This is an area of bizarre landscape with a maze of gullies and ravines, limestone pinnacles and cliffs. Apparently Europes largest lizard lives here, the ocellated lizard. We follow one of two signposted walks through the weird and wonderful landscape. To use the word ...
... of burning rubber now. I am hoping the rental company don't notice the tyres have lost about an inch in diameter because my insurance doesn’t cover that.
Because I have also run out of clothes I decided it was time to take myself to the coin operated Laundromat. Now I have America ideas about what these should be like, as the last one I went to was in America. It had a TV and a crazy bag lady, and lovely looking men for me to watch between spin cycles.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Don Pedro Hotel Torremolinos
Good but not to good
stayed four days found the hotel clean rooms good size but no bigger than normal food was edible but only just definetly not for young people if you were 50 you would be a youngster but all that said hotel was clean tidy pool area looked good hotel staff helpfull so if you are looking for a quiet holiday this is the place for you .
Great Value For Money
We booked this hotel online and through Flyglobespan and stayed 7/16th July 2004.
Room was clean and tidy and the air conditioning worked fine.
Food was good and varied.
Grounds are spacious and well maintained. Plenty of room around the pools.
Handy for beach and sea front.
We will go again for a short break probably contacting the hotel direct for the best deal.
Great value - attractive outside/inside & reasonable food.
Needed to get away and went for a short break in June expecting to have to turn a blind eye to some things as price was not high. Had such an enjoyable time have been back another twice. Location is excellent as hotel is across road from beach and less than 10 mins from airport. Hotel grounds are well tended and laid out in such a way that families can congregate around pools and those of us without children can find a quieter area to enjoy the sun. Restaurant serves usual Spanish buffet fare - but perfectly enjoyable. Staff are very friendly. There is nightly entertainment which I found more amusing than entertaining (maybe it was the cuba libres!) but I'm booked for a fourth visit - can't beat it for value
I just stayed in this hotel in July 04 largely because of the favorable reviews on this site but I think they were really overating this hotel. It has NO non-smoking rooms, and they don't tell you this when they take your reservation request. Dance music is played loudly outside until midnight and if you inquire about this with the night clerk he will admonish you for inquiring. The furnishings are dated and drab, and not in a cool retro way but in a depressing way. The reception staff tried to charge me more than the rate I confirmed. (Bring your written confirmation!) I asked for an ATM machine and was told the closest one was a 20 minute walk away. Room temperature can only be adjusted by calling the maintenance supervisor. The rate I paid, 95 Euro's, was definitely too much for the value.
Visited recently for a short break and was pleasently surprised by the quality and value for money. ideally situated near to the beach and the old town, would have no hesitation in going back again
The Don Pedro lives up to the Sol hotel reputation - clean, excellent value for money, great food, spacious rooms - it is in an ideal location for the Poseidon beach and is also not too far away from Calle San Miguel. The best of both worlds. You can get to the latter by walking up the hill behind the hotel, 10 minutes at most, or walking the promenade and taking the lift (50 cents). The lift is a welcome innovation given my many attempts at the ( One hundred and ) 39 Steps!
Stayed in the Don Pedro last summer and it was a great value for money hotel. The location was superb, the grounds and pool were welcoming and there was a vast choice of food in the hotel restaurant. Clean, efficient, and friendly - no complaints. Recommended to anyone.
excellent value for money friendly staff, food excellent. have been twice will certainly be returning. nothing to much trouble for the staff.
