Coming over? Don’t forget to bring your golf  clubs, we have an 18 hole golf course located just 6 km from Salobreña.

Los Mariscos Golf  Club is located in Playa Granada  just a short distance from the La Charca de Suárez bird sanctuary, so if you like both activities, look out!

In the off season here, you can rent a 2 bedroom  apartment in the area for as little as 225 euros per week,  not per person, per apt and it would be walking distance to the club.  You can’t beat those prices.  I stopped by yesterday to take some photos  of the driving range with its practice putting greens.   The course is located right on the coast, so you can hear and see the sea on one side, and the snow capped mountains and Salobreña on the other.  If you are looking to rent, check out http://www.rentcostatropical.com  they are a local outfit that I know very well, and have many many inexpensive but upscale rentals available, not only in the Playa Granada, but all over the region. Just a taste boys.

Well I have to say, yesterday five of us went out for lunch at a new restaurant in Playa Granada, which is located in the golf region. As a matter of fact, this restaurant is directly across from the clubhouse.  What a meal, absolutely 5 star.  It was one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant since arriving here 8 years ago.

Our choices were simple, but boy oh boy were they good.  Two of us had pizza, two had caneloni, and one had carpaccio. There are a ton of interesting things on the menu, steak, 3 or 4 different types of carpaccio, pastas, salads, and lots more.  Forgive me for not noticing everything, but I am hopeless with a menu, I go into a trance when I read them, hence I take nothing in.  I normally just ask the others, “what are you having, oh that sounds good I will have that too”. So my choice was a simple pizza, tomato sauce, cheese and onion, on which I drizzled picante olive oil. I felt just like Homer Simpson must feel when he gets a big ol’ pork chop in his mouth.. allgggggggahhh. I give it a 10 out of 10.

Everyone said their meals were good as well, N&J they gave their caneloni and 8. And A, who had the carpaccio with porcini mushrooms and sauted artichoke said hers was definitely very good, couldn’t get a number out of her though.  H loved her pizza but went crazy when ordering and had too many toppings rendering it very rich.  We all had drinks, large glasses of wine or beer not just one either and coffees at the end.  Total for the meal 102 euros for 5 people before tip.  Very reasonable, and I will definitely go back.

Where were we??? ROBERTO’S Playa Granada just a 10 minute drive down the road.  If you are coming to the area you have to try this place out. The décor is beautiful, service is excellent and the rest rooms spotless. Very Nuevo. They have indoor and outdoor dining, and a hopping bar area.  You just got to try it.

One last thing, they brought a tapa of delicious olives to eat while waiting for our foods, plus garlic toasties. Make note, they charge for the garlic toasties.

A few snaps.

How is this for a view. These pictures were taken today at Playa Granada, which is just down the road from the Golf Club. Along this same road, you can see on of the summer homes of the Belgian royal family. This particular bar is called the 19th Hole, during the day you can rent sun beds with umbrellas and get drinks delivered to your table by one of the many friendly bar servers. At night it is party time which continues on into the wee hours of the morning. I have driven by at 8am and they are still cleaning up from the previous nights activities.
