Just returned from a week at the Cortijo Blanco, which I must say was a great hotel and we had an enjoyable weeks stay.
The setting is deceiving, it's just off the main dual carriageway next to San Pedro town, but you don't hear road noise, once inside the grounds its another world. The gardens are immaculate, very colourful flora and water features.
The accommodation is comfortable, clean with plenty of space for bags, clothing etc. All the staff do you proud, from the cleaners to the caterers etc.
The food is ok, plenty of choice, the only downside was that there is pork virtually at every sitting, I was fed up of it, also chips, if I ever eat another chip i'll end up with a square anus :-)
The drink was of decent quality, San Miguel lager, chilled, which was excellent in the hot weather.
The entertainment was ok if you're into quizzes, dancing etc, but that's not for me, I found myself going out for a pint at the 2 bars that were nearby.
Now down to the business end of things, trip to Gibraltar, I booked it with Les who stands outside between the Cortijo Blanco and Pueblo Andaluz hotels, it now costs e23 per person for the shopping trip of 5 hours in Gibraltar, which is just under £20.
Cigarettes in Spain have gone up, it is now on average e48 for 200 fags, and e87 for Golden Virginia baccy, 10 x 50g pouches. In Gibraltar fags vary between £25-£28 for 200 and Golden Virginia baccy is roughly £40 for 10 x 50g.
All in all, a great week, with excellent weather, met some great couples and families from Huddersfield, Marple, Eastbourne, Kingston, Teesside, North East etc, a great bunch of people doing what they do best, enjoying themselves.
