When we visit our villa I find wi-fi facilities (preferably free) very hard to find in Quesada. I have used the Lime Bar and have heard that there is also wi-fi at Lo Marabu, Claptons, and the bar above Gamma on Dona Pepa but are there any near Super Valu or anywhere near La Marquesa club house?
Also, if anyone knows where i can get wi-fi in Guardamar that would also be very useful.
The cultural centre has free internet access (Mon-Fri) and I've seen people there with their own computers - I assume that they were accessing the internet. Also there is a really nice coffee shop in Quesada village (behind the information centre) which has WI-Fi facilities - it's run by a very friendly and helpful English lady - the coffee and cakes are delicious.
Bagels&Sofa across the road from the newspaper store (calle Sola) in Quesada has free wi-fi facilities. And it´s fast!
And they have delicious food&drinks!
The access at McDonalds in Torrevieja is no good!!
Does anyone know what else goes on at the cultural centre - languages, sports etc???
Re wifi in Guardamar town we saw (Wednesday) there was a big place with many computers, it had a sign 1€/hour. It was on your left as you go down the main road between the big free car park & the Wednesday market. Don't know if that would interest you.
Free wifi at Rayz bar on El Raso urb.
Rojales management in the municipality south of the Costa Blanca has chosen to do this in order to serve its citizens and not least tourists, a great deal of access to the Internet.
Seven locations around the municipality, both in the center and out in the urbanization, it is now installed free networks.
Places the Internet available to all Plaza Blanca de Ciudad Quesada, Biblioteca Municipal, Aula de la Naturaleza, Centro Cultural de Ciudad Quesada, nuevo Centro Cultural de Heredades and Centro De Información Juvenil.

In regards to WI-FI in Guardamar, Resturante Pil Pil in plaza porticada have it. Open everyday Mon-Sun
The Lime Bar & Restaurant is for sale BTW!
Many thanks for all your responses and apologies for the delay in replying, but we went to the villa soon after I made the original posting and, since returning, I have been rather laid up with a nasty throat I must have caught on the plane. While over in Quesada I found the following:
By the Quesada fountain roundabout near la Marquesa:
Free wi-fi at Shenannigans, The Asia Wok and The Olde 9th, but El Pirata, previously my preferred choice for a beer or coffee in the sun, unfortunately does not have wi-fi. Spencers bar was soon to re-open as a rock bar and I was advised that wi-fi would be available.
Near the Arches:
I didn’t find much here so the mention of Bagels & Sofa is very useful – I don’t often seem to venture into this road. Peter and Ana - Is this the coffee shop you mention in your posting? At Mulberry’s there was a wi-fi signal with their name but they refused to give the password out to customers. I was not aware of the facilities provided by Rojales at municipal sites and they are to be applauded for this.
The only restaurant I could find along the front was the excellent fish restaurant, La Rodero, near the beach houses. – very pleasant and helpful. I was also told that there is wi-fi at a couple of cafes in the town but have not located them yet.
I hope this is of use for others and I hope that more bar owners will wake up to the fact that installing and advertising free wi-fi will attract customers.
