Quote: We decided to treat ourselves to an extra long weekend trip to Albir. There are cheap direct flights from home, and we were going to stay with friends.

I started to wonder if there was a giant fan situated in the kitchen and pointing toward the main road. The fragrances from the restaurant cause some definite mouth watering -- to the extent that we had meals from there twice on our 10-day stay! We only ordered take-away, and it was hard to figure out how much to order, but the containers were standard size. Following custom, we shared our dishes, so we ordered one each with some lemon rice, plain rice, and garlic naan bread.Ordering take-away over the phone was a breeze, and the food was ready within 30 minutes -- enough time to stroll down and fetch it.

Getting there was no problem, and finding parking was easy enough, because we got there near opening time. We had coupons, so we paid less for entrance and made our way to the nearest map. We found some sun beds near 'Adventureland' and parked our stuff there. Lockers are available, but only near the park entrance, so it was a hassle when we went to get valuables and the like.
