Re: The new tourist registration law

Hi, we have a similar issue. We don't want a tourist licence but our community of owners, yesterday, voted narrowly to apply for one. We don't rent and won't rent. We don't have a problem with those that do but look likely to have to contribute to the cost of the licence since it has to be for the e...

Re: Buying property

Hi, just noticed that nobody has replied to you. Giving advice is difficult because I don't know your circumstances. My wife and I bought our apartment over 10 years ago. The exchange rate was 1.50 euros to the pound and property prices high. On the face of it a big mistake. However, we bought it fo...

Re: Christmas and New Year

Hi, my wife and I did it once (3 years ago). Our apartment is in Coves Noves, adjacent to Arenal. All shops and restaurants in the locality were closed (as we expected) but there were plenty open in the larger towns. As luck would have it, the weather was great. Very sunny and mild but cool, as you'...

Re: Not such a friendly welcome this year!

Nor the north around Arenal, Coves Noves, Fornells etc. (We were there for 2 weeks in July). A hugely disappointing experience that was not typical of the island that I know and love. We're back again in September so will see if there have been changes!

Re: Buses from arenal

Hi tony,

Please find a link to Auto Fornells http://www.autosfornells.com/ -this is the bus company that serves Arenal and its environs! Its cheap and, I believe, reliable.

Cheers,

Mike

Re: Blessing of the boats

Our daughter is over in Menorca at the moment. Does anyone have any further details (times etc.) of the Blessing of the Boats? Cheers, Mike

Dentist-Alaior

Hi all, whilst on the island (last couple of weeks) I had need to get some urgent dental treatment. A friend recommended the dentist in Alaior. I rang at 4.15 pm, last Thursday and got an appointment for 5.00 pm! We were in Coves Noves and struggled to get there on time and became lost in Alaior. A ...

Re: this time next week

Hi chrisandclare, just got back from our apartment (in Coves Noves) on Saturday. Everything appears open and fairly busy. The beach in Arenal is as beautiful as ever. Enjoy! Mike

Re: Prom to be built on Arenal beach?

Hi all, just got back last Friday. The promenade is almost completed (my wife and I walked over it to the end of the apartments on the beach. I would guess, at the current rate, it'll be completed for Easter. We go back that week so will check and update interested parties on our return. Kind regard...
