Whilst exploring the Bendelamena and La Carihuila area I eventually found Toms Tavern and a nice litlle pub it is with generous sized helping od Jack D's.
Across the road was a very smart and ultra switch hotel the Nautilas. I ventured into this hotel and found it immaculate in every respect. In fact when I visit this area again this is the hotel I will be staying.
I found the Paseo Maritimo around the Sol Principe, Isabel hotels to be very quiet, almost dead in fact. I spent some time in the Chiringuitos during the day and tried all the things I had missed in the past, like Sardinas Chirizo Malagueno etc and eventually a Paiella.
But for me the La Carihuila and Bendalmena street along the sea front was heaving with peoplke and music. A real holiday feel about the place. The Paseo has become in my opinion very Spanish....and why not it is there country......but so quiet.
Calle San Miguel was fun and it was great to go back to the Colonia bar and enjoy a 2 litre beer glass and watch the world go by. There is even a little Christian Church on the Calle Gregoria Menamon, so I gave them some cash for there food bank aid.
After 14 years of burning on Greek and Spanish beaches this year I used Riemann P20 lotion and have a great tan and no burning....just a thought.
I booked through Alpharooms and had no problems at all. Once agin thanks to other members and the mods for making it a great holiday. Adios Muchachas
