Benidorm

The Melia Benidorm Hotel

When we first arrived at the hotel and gathered our cases off the airport bus, this is what we were met with. And that’s just the entrance.

Any efforts to appear like seasoned tourists who’d seen it all before vanished immediately. We both looked at each other in awe, and managed to utter “WOW” about 20 times…

Then it just got even better Inside, yes all these plants are REAL, none of Aunty Betty’s fake silk flowers with tea stains…

Hanging Gardens of Babylon got nothing on this…

Our room was up there somewhere, in fact 17 floors up there…

This bit here must be where people sit round in summer, sipping cocktails while having a right good gossip…

The way down to the spa, gym, the massive indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi’s (latter being plural)…

Ha! Imagine two little kids called Heth and Dave sat in a Jacuzzi laughing their heads off. Whilst powerful bubbles are firing off into bodily crevices they’ve no right to be in.

Believe me, we’ve been in them things before, but that was enough to blow your ass off, or even up, (call it cosmetically toned).

PS: On a different note, but still on a watery theme, Takey Tezey is being valued tomorrow ready for sale. Agghhh, just noticed a speck of dust…
