I don't know if I missed it, but where is the Black Bull, and where and when are the pickups?

Commented spanglish in Quesada 2011-03-11 22:39:41 UTC

Hi Spanglish, we are out near Torremendo. The pickups are as and when you request them. If you call and book in the mini bus will meet you wherever it suitable for yourself within reason. There is no minimum amount of people.

Hope this helps :)

Commented La Luz Bar/Restaurant in La Marina 2011-03-12 06:21:40 UTC

Many thanks for that info!

Commented spanglish in Quesada 2011-03-12 09:34:44 UTC

Oh and we come to Quesada for pick ups :)

Commented La Luz Bar/Restaurant in La Marina 2011-03-12 09:56:50 UTC

So if we get a group together from Quesada you would be happy to collect us and then takes us back again. This sounds like a good deal to me.

Commented Dave Long in Rojales 2011-03-12 10:09:05 UTC

Yes of course, no problem at all... We have quite a few people who come over from Quesada already. We live here ourselves you see.
We have a disco with Foxy on the 18th and Suzy G and her amazing Michael Jackson Show on the 26th. If you want to come for food on any other night that is fine too :)

Commented La Luz Bar/Restaurant in La Marina 2011-03-12 11:36:22 UTC


Can anyone recommend a taxi service (not for airport runs) that I could use for short visits to friends? I haven't plucked up enough courage to drive in Spain yet!


Try Glyn on 0034 696011110 he is brilliant and looks after his clients very well.

Good Luck

Celebrations in Rojales

Friday 29th April in the Rojales Market Place we will be internationally raising a glass for the newlyweds.

From 11am the ceremony will be shown live and there will be all sorts of music, competitions, games, foods and drinks for all ages, a wide variety of stalls as well as demonstrations.

Remember the street parties? This is a great reason to have an international day in the local area.

This event is in aid of Paul Cunningham Nurses in Association with Rojales Town Hall, supported by TKO and Sol Production.

Keep your eyes on the local press and we will update the event as is gets closer.

Anyone who wishes to participate with a stall or has ideas for games and competitions please contact us through The Royal Wedding in Rojales FaceBook page.

We are also looking for photos of the Silver Jubilee street parties to be used for local advertising.

Looking forward to seeing you there.


What a great idea, can you let me know what the cost of tickets are and where I can get them from.

Commented Dave Long in Rojales 2011-03-10 18:20:24 UTC

FREE entry for all, the only thing that will need pre booking will be the Mad Hatter´s Tea Party for the little folk, but more about that soon.....

The answer is yes, at the moment you can click on the post index button at the bottom of the page to see old post. The forum will grow very quickly so a better system will be put in place as well as a search box where you can type in what you are looking for. I hope that this will all be in place within a week.

If you click on the Post Index button at the bottom of the page this will show you all the old post, by clicking one on the list will bring it onto your screen.

Thanks Matty for your help much appreciated mate. We have a few irons in the fire at the moment, so hopefully we can sort something out.






We are looking to visit the resort in April and are wondering whether there are any local taxis available to pick us up from Alicante airport and what prices this would be. We would require a child car seat for the journey as we have an 18 month old son.

Many thanks



This man does airport runs for 35 Euros not sure about the car seat Phil on 0034 660099862 or 0034 966715235

Commented Patti in Quesada 2011-03-08 08:38:44 UTC

We know many who do airport runs but are 100% illegal. There are far too few taxis unfortunately & , as these often charge around 50% more, people choose to use illegal 'taxis' which are not insured for public conveyancing, often it's people who do it to supplement their pensions etc &, of course, don't pay tax on the earnings. For these reasons I never give out numbers for these. Nice earner though & plenty of takers. Is Phil 100% legal?

Commented blogwriter in Quesada 2011-03-08 10:02:54 UTC

You are 100% correct blogwriter there are so many locals that will do the run for you in their private car. In this case Phil is legal, its the same company that does the car hire for 10 Euros per day, they offer it as a service for people renting from them but will also collect people that are not renting

Commented Patti in Quesada 2011-03-08 11:04:39 UTC

I assume then that Phil has a "Tarjete de Transporte" which authorises him to transport passengers for reward. Having a taxi licence doesn't make the service or vehicle legal. If he has an accident the fare paying passengers will not be covered. Up to each of us to demand to see this paperwork.

Commented blogwriter in Quesada 2011-03-08 13:26:04 UTC

Many thanks does anyone have an email address for Phil?

Hi Will

we have an excellent cleaner for our rental property on Quesada. Our guests always comment on the immaculate condition of the villa particularly the bedding and linen. I can pass your details on to her if you wish.

We also have a key holder in case of emergencies but with regard to access for our guests into the villa we simply send keys through the post. This is a much more cost effective and manageable method for us.



Located at La Finca Commercial centre, Algorfa.

Showing all premiership games on 3 different screens, open 9.30am till late.

Quiz night every Thursdays from 8pm.

Food served all day everyday till 10pm.

Friendly staff and all ages welcome.

Beautiful views on the sun terrace.

for enquires call 966 729 658.

Hope to see you down here.

Will you be covering the England Rugby game on Sunday? We get in on Sunday morning to Quesada and if he does not find a place to watch the game my life hell for the next week.

Commented Papillon in La Marina 2011-03-08 15:11:31 UTC

Yes we will have it on.

Commented El Lugar Sports Bar in Quesada 2011-03-08 15:20:02 UTC

You are a life saver. You will recognise my husband he will be the one with the silly grin all over his face because I am not with him and he is in a bar with the rugby on.
