Re: Resort Developments

Interesting news. Thanks! I heard that the owners of Compostella did not open their other enterprise in Mahon this winter and so decided to keep the Son Bou restaurant open through the winter for any locals or building workers who might use it. It was pretty empty most of the time I was there in Dec...

Re: Banca March

This is a shame to read. When I first bought my property in 2016 I was introduced to BM and Sylvia has always been helpful, efficient and friendly. I rarely use an ATM as I do most payments on my BM Debit Card or Caxton. I only hope that there is not something more alarming going on! Feliz Navidad!

Re: Buying a second hand car

I am so sorry to hear that Shuggie. I was not aware. A lovely man. I also know that Darren has not been well recently and is having to spend some time out of the business.

Re: Clean Menorca !

I also totally agree with the comments. The locals work really hard to make this island clean and tidy - for their own benefit as well as the tourists! Well done to them. It made me chuckle when driving down ME1 and they were out strumming verges and collecting rubbish. In UK you would have had thou...
