Malaga Airport

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

The airport is very close to Torremolinos so unless unavoidable get the train (less than €2 each) as taxis charge a minimum of €19 to/from airport. Airport is spacious and security usually quick. Lounge (Priority Pass as well as BA) is on the upper floor and is large and airy with a good range of nibbles (toast, jams, biscuits, sandwiches etc).

Trip to Gibraltar. Long coach journey there (3 hours as there were many pick-ups).

 

Malaga – June 2012

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Spent the afternoon in Malaga, which, once you get away from the built up area and head towards the cathedral is a beautiful little town with a large park which holds the castle and other grounds. [ADD LINK TO PICS][ EMBED ONE PIC OF THE CATHEDRAL]. Unfortunately didn’t have time to go into the cathedral or castle grounds but definitely worth a trip back if time allows in the future.

Torremolinos – June 2012

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Great holiday spent in Torremolinos, staying in an apartment which had three bedrooms and two bathrooms, kitchen, large lounge/diner, balcony with table/chairs for dining and a massive upstairs terrace (ok for naked sunbathing). Although the apartment was excellent, it was about a 20 minute walk (or €7 taxi ride) from the main town centre which is a bit far. Also, only one bathroom was en suite so the flat is only really suitable for 4 adults (main bedroom has a double bed, the others have 2 single beds each). The apartment is situated in a large private complex with own grounds and pools.

Hilton @ LGW

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Although our flight on Sunday wasn’t particularly early we decided to spend the previous night at the Hilton at LGW. Upgraded to an executive lounge we went shopping for some food in the airport and then hit the lounge for the Saturday evening free drinks. The lounge at this hotel is not particularly impressive, nor is its range of nibbles. Although we had an executive room we didn’t get bathrobes which is unusual.
