We are starting to hear rumours that the refurbished golf hotel is likely to open reasonably soon. Also, it is being suggested that the AR Almerimar Hotel (was called the Beach Hotel and perhaps even Concordia Hotel in the past) will close when the new hotel opens.

The rumour is that all of the staff will transfer across and work in the new hotel.

I guess we might find out soon.

I was walking past what used to be Oscar's Bistro the other day and noticed that the sign for Bar D'Ana has now been installed outside.

We have been asked to advertise 2 two bedroom apartments in La Ladera available for rent. Fully equiped and available at a good rental price. Anyone interested should contact Vivien on 630 93 21 60.

I had to call into Copo this afternoon after having sorted out the new tyres for the car. While there I noticed that they had a sign by the door saying that they were opening on Sundays through the summer through to 9 September 2012.

Penny recently told Jacqui about a chinese discount warehouse in El Ejido. We had some things to do in El Ejido so we called in and had a look.

It was a bit like the chinese shops in Almerimar but bigger. It is on the road where all of the garages are. You go over the motorway and straight down past Lidl. When you reach the roundabout with the El Ejido hotel on the corner turn right. Just before you reach the Renault garage on the right you turn left across the oncoming traffic. (signposted to Corte Chino ???? - I cannot remember the 3rd word). Turn first right then left and the warehouse is up on the left.

Jules would love this place as it has lots of pink plastic things.

We came home with a pot for a plant on the terrace, a drinks cool bag and a solar light with a butterfly attachment. It could have been much more but thankfully not.
