But the resort we'd booked is on a golf complex, 4 km out of town and is absolutely fine. We have an apartment from which we can walk straight out to the pool and the beach is about 100 metres away.
Even better, on Monday, the resort built a beach bar for us. We're off just now to see if the beer delivery has arrived....
it seems ages since I put finger to keyboard and I suppose it is
really. Oliva Golf Resort turned out to be really nice. We had a
lovely apartment – as previously noted – and the weather turned
out pretty warm so we had what we'd hoped for, a week chilling and
recharging the batteries for the next onslaught of tourist sites
(which includes Barcelona! [Some of you will perhaps know that I'm
not that enamoured with Barcelona but it's on the itinerary so we're
spent this “respite week” getting the laundry done, taking long
walks on the beach – which generally – no, correction, always –
ended up somewhere for a late morning Cafe con leche followed by an
early afternoon Cerveza, and basically chilling. Towards the end,
Jane was doing “dry hair” laps of the pool with Caroline who, it
transpired, was a really nice down to earth “owner” at this
particular resort and, as a result, we ended up on our last evening,
sitting in a bar with six other “locals” enjoying a really nice
time catching up on all the news from Oliva Golf Resort Owners
Association (or whatever they might call themselves!!)
Saturday, we are chilled and it's time to move on......
