We sometimes go up for a drink, or the BBQ night on a Thursday. We have had friends stay there, who said it was okay, and they did have a car. The building work next door has come to a halt. An advantage may be to speak Russian, and dress in the dark using only bright red, green and yellow clothes. That way you should blend in nicely.

Pleased you had a great time! Think the local economy may see a little down turn in your absence?
Come back soon!

We spent a month there twice, on the fourth floor, self catering. Loved it the first time. The second time there were building works next door and they are still there a year later but seem dormant and the moment. They also changed the windows in our room while we were there! Still it wasn't too bad but we bought an apartment in March.

The great thing about the rooms is the kitchen is reasonably equipped for self catering and the balconies are huge. The view is fantastic and the road is a cul-de-sac so no through traffic.

The reception staff are friendly. The main restaurant is OK but the menu is a little limited compared to say the Barcello. We mainly eat out or self cater.

It is right at the top so you need good legs to get up and down unless you have a car. We like it because we managed to lose weight.

We're heading home tomorrow after our three week annual pilgrimage and I have to say this year has surpassed all others.  The food in the restaurants this year has been outstanding, the prices are very reasonable, I'm sure the local businesses have been challenged with regards to the roadworks but it will all be worth it in the end, we could see the progress in the short time we were here. We were also fortunate enough to have met some lovely new people who, like us, have a special affinity with the place. So all in all we've made some nice new memories and can't wait to return. It's so heart warming to return to this sup community year after year. A big thanks to all those small businesses who work so hard to make our stay so enjoyable. La Bodequita, Alfonso's place, Mamma Lucia, Cass Pepe, Aires del Sur, Sauco in Alcala, TJ's, Bamboo Bar, Bar La Sangria, Sizzling Punjab, the Tea House, the list is endless, and also to the expats who are happy to stop and have a chat. This is undoubtedly our happy place, thank you all and see you next year.

The travel costs for apartments look reasonable this year

Booking through a holiday company or should we use airbnb

Any positive feedback would be appreciated

I would be interested in reviews on anyone who has stayed in these apartments

Looking to book this year
I've heard he kips in the unfinished building up near the Royal Sun.

I thought this unlikely for a saviour of humanity but then I remembered about Bethlehem, the stable etc.

Now I'm convinced he IS The Messiah so i've decided to follow him.

Not sure how he feels about this but he'll get used to it in time.

Thanks white rose, very helpful. Hope it'll all be finished by Christmas when we're next over (but I doubt it).
