Getting around in Granada / 4 euro taxi rip off
« Last post by Buzz on May 19, 2011, 02:58:27 AM »
I was charged nearly 4 euros for a journey between the Cathedral and Plaza Nueva.
I didn't realise that it was so near.

The journey took only 1 minute and the fare was almost 4 euros.

Was I ripped off?
La Herradura / Re: Water sports
« Last post by Steven Wellington on May 13, 2011, 01:49:38 PM »
There is a place on the beach called windsurf La Herradura.

They have lots of stuff such as kayaks, windsurfers, catamarans, small yachts  etc.

For 5 Euros per hour you can rent a kayak and take it for a spin round the bay.

When I was there a group of girls were having windsurfing lessons  on a pivot thing on the beach then later we saw them in the sea having their first attempts at windsurfing.

There is a price list in front of the hut and the boss appears to be a Norwegian man who speaks English.

It looks like a good place to take your son.

Almuñecar / Re: Good walks around Almuñecar
« Last post by granadagirl on April 04, 2011, 06:33:18 AM »
There is a walking group which does walks normally fairly near to Almuñecar usually on Sundays
all year except for when it is too hot between June and mid September.

The walks are normally about 10km.

Most of the group are English speakers.
If you don't have a car someone will normally be able to take you.
It's very friendly.

To get information about the walks look at this page

Accommodation / Re: Hotels with different amounts of Stars
« Last post by granadaexpert on March 26, 2011, 02:28:08 PM »
The star system is only a rough indication of the quality of a hotel.

I have heard that to get a 5 star rating the hotel must have a lift but there are some excellent hotels which have only one floor
with no lift and can never get above 3 stars.

Here are some links which will show places to stay in Granada according to how many stars they have.

Five star hotels in Granada
Four star hotels in Granada
Three star hotels in Granada
Two star hotels in Granada
Hostals in Granada
Apartments in Granada

Accommodation / Hotels with different amounts of Stars
« Last post by Ashley on March 26, 2011, 02:20:44 PM »
I have stayed in a few hotels in Madrid, Barcelona and a few other places.
In my own personal opinion the amount of stars a hotel has does not seem to reflect how good it is.
I have heard that they are even going to open a seven star hotel in Almuñecar.

Any comments.

Accommodation / Swapping Homes for Holidays
« Last post by Brian L on March 22, 2011, 03:20:43 PM »

We have just returned from a great few days in Granada, and thanks to this forum/website for some v useful info, and I was wondering if anyone would consider swapping their home for a holiday elsewhere. This is not necessarily just for us, as I have a Home Exchange website for the 50plus traveller and I am sure many of our members would like to visit the city, especially when I tell them how good it is.

If anyone is interested or knows others who may be, please let me know.
