Anyone not long back from Cala n' Bosch

Hi,

Off to Cala n' Bosch in a couple of weeks and was just wondering if anybody's been recently.

I'm thinking of using the ATMs for the first time abroad and have been told that there are a few in the resort so should be OK.

Was just wondering if anybody's just back and could comment on the number/reliability of them.

I have a slight fear that if there isn't many or they are unreliable, I'm going to be left without money and having to get a bus to the next resort which is waht somebody on another forum said had happened to them.

I plan on taking a couple of hundred in euros to get me over the first few days but will be relying on ATMs from then.

Any help/advice would be welcome.

OK - many thanks.

How long are you going for. If it's 2 weeks it will be too late as I go 2 weeks tomorrow but thanks anyway.

That's good to know.

Would rather there were a few reliable ones but thanks for the info.

Did you take cash or travellers cheques then rather than using ATMs?

What is the more popular method of spending on here? - not been abroad for about 4 years and always used to use traveller's cheques but debit/credit cards seem more popular now.

There's at least 3, maybe 4 ATM's, all around the same area to the rear of the marina (opposite Paradise Club).

Just re read your last post, be careful if you don't bank with Nationwide as other banks charges are high for ATM/Visa transactions. Nationwide is still free at the moment but if you bank elsewhere make sure you fully understand what charges you'll incur.

Yes I have got a Nationwide flex account so was planning to use this.

My concern was the number and reliability of the atms.

I suppose if there's 3 or 4 should be fine. Did you use them yourself? Were they reliable?

Many thanks for your help.
