My advice would be to take euros with you rather than sterling.
The Edem Bar is at the end of the beach road from the direction where you would walk in from the Amazones, so would be say 6-7 mins walk or so, certainly less than 10 mins.
Hi - I hear what you say - however we have never had problems changing st erling abroad - in fact the exchange rate is often better than here in the uk. Has this changed because of the problems Greece is facing at the moment? Are you saying that sterling will not be exchanged anywhere in Stalis or perhaps the exchange rate will be poor? On our last visit to Stalis two years ago, we exchanged our sterling in a place opposite Edem Bar (can't remember its name)..
Oh no, I'm certainly not saying that you won't be able to exchange sterling. And I doubt whether anything has changed consequent of the current economic situation at present.
Most people tend to do it the other way round and take euro as currency rather than sterling, maybe topping up with a debit card from an ATM. But it is all down to personal preference I suppose.
Have a good holiday - I have to wait until Sept before my return to Stalis.
We used to take a bit in euro's and the rest in sterling to change when over there, the last couple of years however the rate has always been slightly better at home so we've switched to taking all in euro's - stash it in the safe in our room. We still take a bit of sterling 'just incase' but have not usually needed it and end up going home with euro's.
Hi we stayed at the Amazones 18 mths ago, lovely place to stay, very clean and spacious apartments. Watch out for the microwave press the stop button before opening the door or it continues to work when you open the door, these are at child height. Other than that lovely pool, bar and people.
Thanx - we are really looking forward to our hols - Amazones sounds lovely! Just 13 dys to go yayyyyyyy
Does anyone have any idea what the exchange rate is in resort? Some friends of ours got 1.22 at a 'cheque cashing' place in town that also does foreign exchange. Can't see it being any better than that in Stalis?
Cheers - Claire
