Good for: Solo
Tried to book a table before arrival. Got a late response (from a private Hotmail-address!) that the booking was possible, but that our wish to sit outside could not be met, as they did not serve outside. I found this a bit odd so I asked wether the outside seats pictured on the web site were only for dinkining (thinking maybe we could at least get...more

Furthermore, both waitress were very angry and they tried to speak with other clients...more

Vi hamnade där pga trötta fötter:) Personalen gjorde en ansträngning och fixade hamburgare o kebab åt oss till lunch när vi frågade om vi kunde få det (det fanns inte på menyn). Gott och billigt, stans billigaste öl/vin? 50 cent för ett glas. Jag har iaf inte...more

The price is reasonable for a sinlgle ride , 85 cents. You have a convenient ride unless it is summer time otherwise you'll keep standing the whole way. It is air conditioned buses and has regular schedules and extra timetables during high season until or after midnight.
The only contra-thing is, we cannot buy day tickets.
The latest fare as of 2006 is 1 Euro.
The town boast many groceries and supermarkets. It is open from 9 am to 10 pm . We love to shop here because you can do many things in one place. A quick lunch in its own restaurant or the nearby ones and a car wash is just right there at the parking area. Even the Cinema is just around the corner. You'll find almost you need from foodstuffs to...more

Watch out as you do strolling at the baywalk where there no so much crowds. Like at the Marina Deportivo area. Just all of a sudden a smiling lady comes to you and place a flower on your hair (women) or chest and say; Welcome to Torrevieja!!! Our first idea is, maybe somebody is running for political candidacy or something else. Once you get or...more

I had one backpack full of stuff for one week, but I only needed couple of clothes and personal hygiene equipment. So most of the stuff I brought along wasn't even necessary. If you are visiting Torrevieja during the summer as I did in July 2003, I think you won't need much of anything.Swinsuit, towel, shorths and sandals and occasionally some...more
Beaches at Guardarmar long safe sandy beaches - mile upon mile of deserted beach. Lots of dunes and private bathing areas. Out of town towards La Mata. Turn off at the big new furiture shop on right hand side drive down through Palmaral area and right onto the beach.
They have lot of cultural and religious fiestas, so be aware of these dates. Banks and shops are closed during this celebrations. Feria de Mayo- a colorful merry festival. We loved watching the women, men and children wearing their beautiful costumes dancing in the feast aerealmore
