Got back yesterday evening after a fabby 8 nights in Benidorm. Stayed at Joya Hotel ( review waiting to be approved ). Weather was fantastic up until Friday when it became very overcast but still warm enough for t-shirt and shorts.
Popped into Carousel on the Saturday evening when we arrived. Walked along from our hotel which took approx 25 mins. Met up with Psycholisa and managed to stay for a couple of hours.
On the Sunday evening had a meet at Uncle Peds and meet up with Scottishbritishbeef and his family, Shezzaedinburgh and her hubby, DCF and her hubby and Cybernan managed to drop in for half an hour with her hubby, so quite a wee crowd we had. Was great meeting up with other TA members and having a blether.
Mon/Tues spent chilling at hotel pool and wandering around Old Town. In the evenings caught a few acts including Joyful Joyful which we saw 2 evenings in a row.
On the Wednesday decided to spend the day at the beach, whilst there received a phone call from friends/neighbours of ours in Scotland but who live mostly in Benalmadena. They had driven 6 hrs to surprise us and were sitting at a bar across from our Hotel and I nearly jumped out of my skin when we were walking by and they called our names.
Was a fantastic surprise and they then stayed for the next 4 nights in Benidorm with us, 2 nights at Rocomar in Old Town and 2 nights at Hotel Joya with us.
We tried to get a table at Paneils but closed on wednesday evening and fully booked on the Thursday. Michaels was also fully booked for nest few evenings. We ended up at a place called El Bosso and had a lovely meal there where the owners made us very welcome. We then spent evenings at Morgans Tavern, Stardust and The Town where we managed to see, CopyCats, Lady Gaga, One Vision, Girls Aloud, Westlife, Michael Buble and a few others I have forgotten.
Had a meal in John & Josephs which was huge and very cheap. Had a fabby holiday and feel we packed in so much and now need a few days away just to chill out, lol!!
