Another super bargain for the sun! How about escaping the cold and taking refuge at the beautiful Costa de Almeria in the South of Spain. I found just the right deal so you have to book your hotel on travelbird.co.uk and your flight on bravofly.com in order to purchase this deal.
You fly from Dublin to Almeria and are cheaper off and quicker if you get into a taxi to get to the hotel. Stay at the 4-star Hotel Elba Almeria (80% on Tripadvisor) which the guests liked so much that it got awarded a Certificate of Excellence this year. The friendly staff will welcome you with a bottle of sparkly Cava to get you into the right mood upon arrival :) The en-suite rooms are comfortably equipped with wifi and can accommodate 3 adults and 2 children max in one room. So also an option for a family break! The location of the hotel is central, so that you will be close to the main attractions. Included in the deal is a hearty breakfast and a late checkout!
Take a trip to Granada or Sierra Nevada, try out horse riding or go on an exciting Jeep tour. Of course you can also hang out at the beach all day of which Almeria has many. For water sports enthusiasts there are many possibilities to go surfing, windsurfing, diving or on adventurous boat trips.
Almeria city has loads to offer, too. Visit the gothic cathedral, which dates back to 1562. It is a beautiful piece of architecture and will make a great shot for your pictures. Another great sight is La Alcazaba, a gigantic fortress that overlooks the city and gives this place a very special feeling. If you’re looking for something to make your belly happy then this holiday is the right choice, too. Since you’re in Spain fantastic sea food is never far, so treat yourself to delicious paella in the evening and ask for non-touristy places to get the most authentic experience. It is worth it :)
