Pirate Pool H10 Mediterranean Village

H10 Mediterranean Village

We chose to stay at the 4* H10 Mediterranean Village hotel in Cap Salou for 2 nights as part of our short break in Barcelona. There are a few H10 hotels in the area, but this one had good family reviews and an interesting pirate boat themed pool for our granddaughter to play in. We only needed bed & breakfast accommodation, but we upgraded to half board, as the extra cost was just £30 for the 5 of us. We…

Ferrari Land Barcelona

Ferrari Land Spain

The boys were excited about visiting the brand new Ferrari Land during our trip to Barcelona, which opened on the 7th April 2017. Ferrari Land is the newest of the three theme parks at PortAventura in Salou and a €100 million euro investment, the water park Caribe Aquatic was the second development which opened in 2000. At the moment you can’t pay a single entry to visit Ferrari Land, it is combined with PortAventura on 1-3 day tickets, plus the…

Bar Central La Boqueria

La Boqueria Food Market

The Mercat de la Boqueria, also known as the Mercat de Sant Josep is a magnet for tourists. This superb food market is situated between La Rambla and the plaza of Sant Josep, it’s a busy, bustling and vibrant place. We tried twice during the afternoon and again in the evening to find vacant stools at one of the tapas bars in La Boqueria, without success. So that mission remains top of our list for our next visit to Barcelona.…

Turó de la Rovira Wedding Shoot

Best view of Barcelona – Turó de la Rovira

For the best panoramic view over Barcelona head for the Turó de la Rovira, a viewpoint enjoyed by locals at the weekend, but not on the tourist map. This location is approximately 15 minutes by taxi from the centre of Barcelona, we had a hire car so it was relatively easy to access, although there is limited free parking, we were fortunate to take the last space on arrival. You can also catch these buses, 24, 92, 119 & V17.…

Barcelo Raval 360 Roof Bar Terrace

Barcelo Raval

We wanted a hotel with a wow factor for our Friday night with the family in Barcelona, we found it at the Barceló Raval. Having arrived early in the city, we parked our car at the underground parking next door to the hotel and went out to explore and get some lunch. It was slightly disappointing when we arrived in reception after the standard check in time of 14:00 to find that our rooms weren’t ready. We were surprised also…

Rethymno, Crete

We visited the town of Rethymno during our Crete trip, and if, like me, you enjoy pretty places with plenty of history, then you should add it to your “places I want to go” list. We had an unnerving experience when we arrived in the town. There are several car parks on the edge of the old town, but we struggled to find a space. Don’t do what we did, which was to try to get into the town with…

Anemos Luxury Grand Resort

Anemos Luxury Grand Resort, Crete

We were all wowed by the Anemos Luxury Grand Resort on arrival in Georgioupolis, this 5 star suites and spa hotel is just one year old. Our first stop was the impressive sun terrace and two swimming pools by reception. Next we were shown a Deluxe Family Room with a private pool which was really spacious (from 65m2) and had been thoughtfully designed to include lots of wardrobe space, air conditioning, tea & coffee making facilities and a television in…
