Can anyone tell me if Charlie's Bistro is suitable for kids?  I heard a rumour that it was adults only.  We are out in two days with two kids age 8 and 12, and would like to go here due to all the recommendations and remember Jason from the Harbour Lights in the days pre-kids.

Used to go in Harbour Lights 20 years ago. Flaming Sausages for starter and Enchiladas for main course, yum yum. 

Mexican is my favourite food.  Any good Mexican restaurants around these days?  There's the one on the way to Arena, but the only time I ever got seriously ill in Los Gigantes was the day after eating there (they used chopping boards not plates for the food), so it's put me off ever going back.

We are flying out in 2 days with our children (8 and 12), and they love the Oasis.  One tip - it goes really cheap after 3pm (or is it 4pm), rather than paying the full day price you only have to pay a couple of euros which is good if you just want an hour there.

The Lido is also quite good as well, has a nice cheap bar.  For years we didn't go in even for a look as we assumed with the guy on the gate and a till you had to pay, but we discovered you only pay to use the pool so can go in and have a drink and a look around for free.

You can see the lido on the live webcam bottom left...

My pool is bottom right so please ignore the large pale fat bloke you may see splashing around.

The Oasis pool is wonderful & has an infinity pool (great food but daytime only). There are slides & an area for young children (it was refurbished approx 2 years ago).  However I do like the Lido (I was there today).  It's a lovely pool with great views & the drinks are very cheap ! 3 euros for a smoothie.
The weather last New Year was quite windy but it was still quite warm.  We spent New Year in the square, watching a great band & the atmosphere was excellent.  Tipsy Terrace is beautifully decorated at Xmas they really make an effort there. Try Highland Paddy, CK's bistro, Charlies bistro & Astaurius in the square (all great restaurants) !  There is mini golf at the Tipsy Terrace as well. 
Your apartment is situated at the bottom of a steep Hill, but you can always get a taxi from there to the square, I'm Sure it wouldn't be more than 3 euros. Have a fantastic time !

Sounds very interesting Pilgrim. I am hopeless with names and would pass recognise him from a picture. I can always remember many moons ago a chap coming into the harbour on a yacht, and meeting him in Harbour Lights,  he said he came in every year for a break from the roaches onboard ugh.

Something for you to think about when you do your trip 😉

I think if you want tipsy terrace for Christmas day to book asap they may already be full. We are in lg before Christmas then return for new and Canadian Christmas 6 January it's a great place.
