Re: Fiesta, Es Mercadal

Trevor and Alan, thanks for your help. I think we'll just head up to Es Mercadal as early as possible to find a parking space. Will plan the rest of the day around that. Hoping to have lunch at Fornells, a quick drive up Monte Toro before heading down to Santo Tomas for a wee vino. Back for a browse...

Re: Help us find our family villa

Hi, Did you ever find the villa? I'm sitting have a wee look at Google Earth (too much time on my hands!!) and can definately see one that looks similar, although if it is, work has been done. If you look for Carrer de Migjorn, which is behind Carrer de la Tramuntana, and carry along until you come ...

Holiday Review 2015

Have just spent another lovely holiday on the beautiful isle. Just as last year we stayed for two weeks at the adults only Valentin Star. Lovely and peaceful around the pool, and the no reserving of sunbed law was enforced to some degree, more so, we noticed, when management appeared. Good on them I...

Re: WOW!!!!

Hi

I've seen this before, and believe it's part of Hobbiton or Hobbitland in New Zealand. It's part of the movie set used in The Lord of the Rings and is now a tourist attraction.

Lord Nelson Hotel

Hi, Wondered if anyone has any info regarding The Lord Nelson Hotel. On our last visit to Santo Tomas, it was filled with Italian guests, and I notice this year it can be booked through one of the British tour operators on an A/I basis. However, Thomson are selling it on a half board basis for Summe...

Re: Review from our recent holiday

Thanks and no problem with the editing Susie. And yep you're right about the glasses, although, admittedly, there was really nothing worth looking at, if you know what I mean!! But eyes do wander easily!

Re: email address for valentin star

Sorry, I'm going to try the one you gave me. What I meant was I couldn't find their email address on their website prior to asking on here. Thanks again.
