When we fly, we try and stay in an airport hotel. We didn't used to, but the year we only just made the flight due to a massive accident on the motorway, made us think again.
We tried a new hotel this year. I am not paying £99 for a room only deal thank you very much. I do have t'internet and am happy to shop around. We ended up in the Crowne Plaza and were more than happy with it. I did make a complete fool of myself in the bar though - I wish we'd have managed a photo. We had a bottle of Prosecco (it was our 18th wedding anniversary) and I ended up opening it - NEVER AGAIN. It only exploded as I opened it and went everywhere, whilst I stood there like a fool. Thankfully the lovely barman replaced (& opened) another bottle and cleaned up the mess I'd made.
This was the first time we had asked for an accessible room. Can you imagine how big the bathroom was - can you???????
The one above was from the doorway.
The only downside was the toilet was so high I couldn't touch the floor!!! Am I meant to carry a brick round to balance on????? (no I didn't take a photo of me trying to touch the floor).
When you book a holiday through a tour company you can request a accessible room but you can't guarantee one. To do so you have to contact the hotel directly and book it with them. I think this is one of the stupidist things I have ever heard of. If there is a room free, why can't the tour company book it on our behalf????? Anyway, I'll get off of my soapbox now.
So we booked a normal room. I think this is something we will have to reconsider in future but I don't want to have to beg for an accessible room............ The transfer in a minibus for the 4 of us was fabulous. I shall never want to share a coach every again :-)
Our room was as far from the reception as possible!! but luckily the receptionist told us that there was a lift near our room which would take us to the pool and the restaurant so for the most it was perfectly placed. Just a long walk to leave the hotel. The views from the huge balcony are below. Look at the blue in that sky.
We had a storm on our first afternoon, but I was so tired I managed to sleep through most of it. It did create a moody sky though.
It soon cleared up so we could have drinks on the balcony.
We stayed in Cala n Bosch on Menorca and whilst I wouldn't rush back it was nice. There were a lot of families visiting and it wasn't very Spanish which I found disappointing, I like to know which country I am visiting.
Who needs a selfie stick?????
Looking out to sea.
Back to the harbour.
That's our hotel below, the orange one.
Day 2 also saw rain. It was so funny, everyone was huddled under an awning waiting. We all thought oh it'd blow over. It rained for ages, so I gave up and went swimming and had lots of people looking at me as though I was odd. I did regret it though as I had a sore throat and chesty cough for the rest of the holiday......
Ok, I'll admit there will be at least more post!!!
