Early September and the resort is still busy, beach is looking packed and all the restaurants on the front look full at lunch time, no vacant properties so it looks like the resort must be doing OK, even t he land train to Binibequer is also looking fullish on the couple of times I've seen it pass.

We are staying at the Occidental [was barchelo] is full. Its a very good hotel with lots going on to keep everyone entertained, our room is large and very comfortable although I read that some of them are very small and cramped. The only downside is the food, definitely not the* it advertises, I'd give it 2.5 to 3*, quite disappointing.

The island seems much quieter this week for tourists than last week.

I've been running past the hotel most evenings.

Much cooler today but hopefully only a blip.

:lol:

One couple did say I was "crackers" as I ran past them.

It's easier now though with the temps and humidity not as high.

Hope you're having a good time.

Yes having a good time, we have always liked Punta Prima. Even though when the kids were young we mostly stayed at Binibequer, we spent a lot of time at Punta Prima.

What about dessert..... Arroz con leche with Spam inglese style!!!
