Ermita de Nuestra Senora de los Remedios

Reviewed By AriAndArja - Vantaa Finland

Beautiful outside and treasure inside.
The walls are covered by paintings from local artist during 14 years of hard work.
They visualize the life of local habitants in their every day life. And the walls picture the surrondings outside as they appear in each direction. Thus the name for transparent church. Also the hill around the church is well kept and has sculptures that match the views. The hill is quite steep but not too high to walk up. But you can take car to parking slot up there too.

Amazing experience, well spent time with friends, something new and really active to do. Worthy money (and it´s not an expensive activity).
Lots of fun, team work is the key to success ;)
Time flies when you are inside, you are suddenly using all your skills to resolve the mistery, you have to become Sherlock or Poirot or Mrs. Marple :D and keep your eyes wide open to see what suppose to stay unseen.
Highly recommended for families, friends, team building or even as a Bday or Xmas gift.
I have never been in the Escape room before but it didn't matter. Guys did a great job to make us feel great there. They took their time to explain everything (from where to park in crowdy season, through clear rules, to recommend us the best place to eat after game), to answer our questions, so nice and friendly staff.
I cant wait for a new adventure to be ready in December :)

The people at Bodegaz Bentomiz are really friendly and have a very interesting, well explained and humorfull story about their winery. However the absolute highlight of the visit is the lunch; a very broad variaty of dishes and tastes compaired with their exentric, complex but also very tastefull wines. Definitely go for the 5 course menu, it is worth every cent :-)

Even before arriving Sara was super helpful via email giving us all The information we needed. It was easy to find, just off a main road in Torrox and everyone working there was super friendly. Run by Sara and Marcin (and cutest baby Olivia!) they made us feel totally at ease. Morning dive la hedurra, my partner and I were beginners and Marcin was a calming influence under the water. He was so reassuring and helpful, it made us feel so much more relaxed knowing he was guiding us. 60 minutes scuba diving was the perfect amount for our first experience. Highly highly recommend this place - they were so friendly and informative, loved every minute! Thank you for a great experience!!

Reviewed By ss-suffolk - Suffolk, United Kingdom

I found KTM Bike Shop on the internet, looking for a nearby supplier of an e-bike.
After visiting the shop and talking with Frank & Els I felt so confident in their knowledge and honest advice I looked no further. They both spoke good English, which helped me as I'm in the early stages of learning Spanish.
The KTM mountain e-bike I liked was a shade too big for me, but there was no pressure for me to accept it althought I was undecided. They found they could offer exactly the same specification with a smaller frame and ordered it. It arrived within the time-frame they indicated.
The product is excellent and everything was well-checked and adjusted before handing it to me with adequate instructions to operate my first e-bike.
Their honesty shone through when I was buying the bike and asked they supply some accessories. They advised me not to buy any extras I mentioned until I had tried the bike for a year as probably I wouldn't need them. I liked this honest approach to the customer.
The only thing I was a little miffed about was that during the sale they agreed that they would collect and deliver the bike free of charge for future services, warranty and repairs as I would not be able to take the bike to them and I lived nearby, but on Delivery it was explained to me that I would have to pay for transport. I understand, but was a little put out.
In summary, I cannot comment on their tours as I missed the opportunity to go on one and receive a refund after buying my bike, as I only found out on their website after purchase and it wasn't mentioned. However I recommend their shop without reservation. I am delighted with their advice, the product and their service.
Frank & Els are exactly the sort of people that I always hope to deal with again in the future.
Totally recommended.

Aquavelis Water Park

Reviewed By Lorraine1955186460 - Cardiff, United Kingdom

The park was very clean, as were the toilet facilities. The staff were extremely friendly and had lots of laughs with the children. There were rides for all ages and kept us entertained for several hours.
On comparison to the Salt Water park that we visited the previous week, this park by far is the best one.
