It was hot and sunny every day..

Holiday

My partner and I went 2011, a short break as kids are older now so left them at home with nana. Pleasently surprised. Hardly no english but this was fine as I think it keeps the prices down. Had lovely long lunches close to the beach.
Prices really reasonable.

Beaches fab. No hustle and bustle. A perfect place to unwind a real gem of a find. Going again in a few weeks. Cant wait..

Weather

Best climate on all of mainland of Spain.
June onwards are best for heat as windy season up till then.
Take plenty of suntan lotion as even in the windiest of times as you'll still burn!

Holiday

Was great!
Holidayed there for three years and found employment.
There is abundant of things too and can even go skiing in the Sierra Nevadas in Granada.

Places Recommended

Go into the Old Town, plenty of spanish bars there.
Also Juan Gabrielle on the main road towards the port, excellent tapas - mainly seafood, some of the afore mentioned bars. i.e La Goletta are all aimed the tourist markets but cheaper out of the urbanization.

Weather

The Weather was lovely nearly everyday - we had 1 night of rain but did'nt mind this too much as it was mid October and it was not cold.

Holiday

My Holiday here was fabulous.
There are many Spanish bars that are more than happy to welcome you with open arms, and the English bars are just as friendly.
Being 24 I need a bit of nightlife which is easy to find as long as you are happy to mix with the Spanish which i most certainly am.

The place is relaxed and calm but as I said if you do want a little bit of night life you dont really have to look to hard.

I stayed in a rented apartment which suited my needs perfectly as food is not that expensive here especially if you have tapas which comes free with an alcoholic beverage.

Places Recommended

I would highly recommend going down to the port for an evening or 2 there are many bars along here some more busy than others but a nice evening all the same.

Would also recommend Bar Spinnaker which is along the beachfront just in the urbanization. The Staff here are very friendly and knowledgable about the local area.

Weather

Hot nearly everyday, a couple of mornings started a bit cloudy but sun soon burnt them off. Summer breeze some days which meant that the humidty dropped to a reasonable level.
Still very warm at night.

Holiday

Fantastic been a number of times to this resort. If you want plenty of English bars and nightlife then don't go, the resort caters for the Spanish holidaymaker.
If everyone stays away then that suits it better for us, the longer this places remains undiscovered by the English the better.
Have stayed at Zoraida Gardens and Park Hotel both of which are adequate holiday hotels with excellent pool area also stayed at The Meditearno Hotel next door more expensive hotel but not worth the extra money.

Places Recommended

La Golleta Bar for an evening drink and La Aloha bar on the beach front for a lunchtime drink and snack, try the chicken wings !
Try shopping in Almeria City, don't bother with Vicar Market.
Mini Hollywood a must.

Rain for almost 2 days.
High winds and overcast for 1 day.
Cloudy with sun 1 day.

On the whole what we expected for this early in the season.

Holiday

Dreadful, hotel full of spanish pensioners (95%) probably 1% of british. Nothing to do, did not come up to the brochure.

Places Recommended

Bar Southern, nice and friendly. Bar Pete wounderful tapas.

Weather

Several days were very sunny. One overcast and raining. Two cloudy/sunny and windy. Temperature ranged between 14 and 22 so cannot complain for the month of March.

Holiday

It was taken as a break to the sun and to have a relax. Unfortunately the resort was hardly open, some bars only opening twice in the week during the evening. Some of the bars were only open during the day and closed up shop at about 6 / 6.30 pm. Very few shops in the vicinity. Shopping centre was 10 minutes away by car and bus.We had been upgraded to Portobello Hotel - supposedly a 5 star. Food was cold all the time. Even when food was put out and taken immediately it was cold. Only hot food was when omelette cooked to order in the morning.

Places Recommended

None in the immediate area. Any trips entailed at least 1 to 1.30 hours travelling.
Recommendation would be not to come to the resort at all. Glad to leave. Like a ghost town - no life at all. If you like the quiet life then this is the place for you!!!
