Amazing! Didn’t think it possible to find somewhere so totally relaxing. The views are amazing, and the slight afternoon breeze in the mountains is most welcome. The pool is wonderfully clean and is just the right temperature.
For anyone with children (our girls are 15 & 13 years old ), I recommend Terra Mitica. We went at 6 p.m. for the evening – the best decision ever ! Lovely and quiet, no queues, no heat of the day. All the rides were open and with no queuing, we did the whole park by 10 p.m. when rides stop. At 10.15 p.m. there was a fabulous show on Cleopatra, then at 11 p.m. a firework / water / light show to end the evening.
We also had great days at Aqualandia and Fonts d’Algar. The latter is beautiful – waterfalls where you can bathe and relax.
Some great beaches – El Arenal is sandy and near. We also went to Cala Barraca (good for snorkelling) and Granadella where we went on a 3 hour sea kayak tour with swimming/snorkelling in some caves. Highly recommended if you have older children & the energy! Ate at a couple of places – “The Office” at El Arenal is good for pizzas, you can watch them make the pizzas, service & food excellent. We also ate in the alleyways/squares in the Old Town ( plenty of tapas restaurants – all good; nice to be in the old part).
The Port is also good to visit and watch the sea/boats with ice creams – they also have an inflatable assault course which the kids loved.
All in all a fabulous holiday – plenty to do around the area, and yet the afternoons back in the pool or playing cards on the terrace with views totally relaxes you.
We will return and highly recommend it.
