“A nice little square, with a couple of friendly bars.”
Review of Plaza de Ole

Plaza de Ole

Reviewed 24 November 2013

This square is nicely between the main road and the beach, and has some friendly bars in it, such as Benedicts and Buddy's, both of which I had an evening drink.
The one I steered clear of after one visit was the Ole bar, it was empty when we got there, but Richard spent all of his time staring across at the other bars, who had customers in them, and Annette was most certainly the rudest person we have met in a long time, refused to serve me at the bar, barked at me to go and sit down, refused to allow me to take my drinks to my table, and made a fuss when I wanted to pay straight away, needless to say, that was the only drink we had in the place.

Just returned from my recent holiday in BENALMADANA. Nice to meet up with old friends Richard and Annette at the Bar Ole. Malc and Jackie at Buddies. Also delighted to see Benedicts going strong in very capable hands with excellent food prepared by Edina a must try Norm bless him does a great job well trained by Edina. Nice to see all of the bars open in the square open wishing them all good fortune. You can enter the square as strangers and leave as friends

This small plaza is just up from the beach walkway and is a hidden gem. It has a selection of nice bars and restaurants in a lovely setting. What also makes it special is the welcome you receive in them; it may sound a bit cheesy but you do come as visitors and leave feeling like friends. Richard & Annette in the Bar Olè are typical of the staff, everyone goes that wee bit extra to make your visit special.
