You just back San? Was it lovely and warm? Oh, I do hope it was!

13 May, 2013

 

it was lovely and hot karen, great weather and great hotela nd food, we have been 3 times now but not again, the stag and hen parties are sadly taking over just like here in blackpool, and so many shops and bars left empty after recession. the drunks show us up as brits im afraid, shame because we like the hotel and have met some lovely people going there.

There's a guy in my Weight Watchers group who freely admits to going there to get tanked! he's in his forties too! Says its the best party town in the world.....put me right off! Lol!

lol he is right but seeing young lads passed out in road is scarey karen, anything could happen to them, police sirens going off every min, the girls are as bad, they actually sell and advertize pint of vodka with red bull 3 euros, so they dont help by letting them drink like that. iv heard of people here in blackpool who have died drinking like that on a night and actually dying of alchohol poisoning, or choking on you know what while unconcious. very sad.

It's unbelievable San....why do they do it? Getting drunk and being ill once was enough to steady me for a few years at a time! Yuck!

Glad you had a good time its a shame about the drunks but we (the Brits) are so disliked abroad because of it ,europeans put up with us just for the money i think

So sad,I would have liked to have gone back at some point,but this has put me right off..we used to have some lovely times there..

Looks a lovely place but as you say it's a shame that youngsters have to get sloshed to enjoy themselves. Stag nights and hen nights seem to have turned into something a bit over the top!!! In my time it was a few drinks at the pub with friends one evening, and that was it. Weddings cost a fortune these days and sadly it seems everything has to be perfect. When are people going to realise it's not about perfection, it's about love and committing to each other. I had a second hand dress, and we did the buttonholes the night before. We did things ourselves as we couldn't afford a lot, and we've been married for 46 years.

Totally agree with you! Did you see in the papers that Keira Knightley had a very quiet and simple wedding? good for her, it's all about the celebrity culture and copying what the stars do....nothing to do with a commitment and a sworn oath nowadays.....but I'm sure they're not all like that. One family member recently had to go to Las Vegas for BIL wedding...ridiculous, and guests are expected to pay their own plane fares! Then they had a big do here as well! could have probably furnished a house and bought a new car with all that lolly, not to mention the house deposit! They want their heads looking at as my Mum would say! ;)

Did you have a nice time Sandra ? .... it looks a lovely place.
I bet the weather was better than here lol :D

thanx all for your comments and your all right about the drinking etc, also wedding cost a fortune and then they all pay to go abroad for hen or stag party, we think they must all be in dept before marriage begins, sadly,
we went to vagas lol but didnt ask anyone , we just wanted to go off and get married alone then came back and had a party for family and close friends.
Hywel, it was restfull with sun but as all comments above wont be going again sadly, some parts are kept lovely like the pics but where the loud pubs are its not so nice, lots of graffiti on walls etc, litter but if you keep to the old town side its not to bad much quieter and the promanade is a nice walk.
feel for the locals and hotels because they will let the parties in because they need to make some money, recession is far from over in parts of spain.
no building work going on and plenty which stopped and never started again, next to our hotel they started a culturel centre which never finished and would have brought jobs and people to Benidorm.
thanx again everyone :o)) xx
