Costa del Gettaway

An April 2003 trip to Benalmadena by donatello

Quote: I went for a weeks break from the dull and wet weather of home and found a beautiful sun drenched getaway.

Costa del Gettaway

Overview

Quote:
The weather was beautiful all week never dropping below 21 degrees. There are plenty of shops and things to do so make sure you bring a lot of money. Also make sure to take a trip to Gibraltar -- it's a great day out.

Quick Tips:

Food along the Benalmadena Costa is so cheap you really won't believe the serving or quality of the food you get.

Best Way To Get Around:

The best way to get around is local taxis. There are plenty of taxis all over Benalmadena and they are relatively cheap. One bit of advice: ask for a price before you get in because you'll find it will be cheaper.

The resort was really nice. We found the rooms were small if you were staying with 3 other adults. Although we did have a great view of the sea and pool. We also had the sun shinning on the room all day, which was nice. The rooms were very comfortable with a nice big bathroom. The resort had great facilities which included a Health Club (for 21 euro per week). It was great to work out and relax after a day in the sun

We found this place on our first day and the food was so good we never changed. Breakfast was 3.50euro for a full English breakfast. Dinner was also amazing. The serving was huge we never once finished it! I can honestly say it is the best food I've ever had

Fuengirola Zoo

Attraction

Quote:
The zoo is a great place for a day out in the sun! Take a camera you'll need it, there are so many types of animals you can stay there all day. Plus watch your kids. There is a gift shop with plenty of expensive animal toys for them to want
