Geoff and I are in negotiation with the owners of the Camping Almafra Resort for the accommodation for the event. The negotiation is over price they have been very helpful in that they have welcomed the event and have allocated all their cabins for us. Full details of the cabins can be found on their website here scroll to the bottom of the page to see the cabins.
The facilities at the venue are very impressive and include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a large jacuzzi, a gymnasium and tennis courts. They will either give us the small cafeteria or cordon off an area of the restaurant for the breakfast and evening meal times. There are vehicle washing facilities on site that we can have access to and there is a small supermarket in case you want to top up on any additional food or drinks. The resort is enclosed with electric barriers that are manned 24 hours a day and so security for our bikes will be excellent.
The resort site is only 5 minutes from the nearest motorway junction and is only 10 minutes from Benidorm and 40 minutes from Alicante airport.
Once the pricing is negotiated we will add it to this page.
29th June 2010 UPDATE
We have negotiated the prices for the cabins and we have done a deal per cabin rather than per head to help keep the costs down. The cabins comprise one, two or three bedrooms (2, 4 or 6 people), a shower room, a lounge and a small kitchen, outside there is a raised decking area with tables and chairs. There are also communal shower blocks if you want a bit more room. As a result of us taking the majority if not all the cabins for the duration of the event the manager has agreed to supply, free of charge, a group Paella and one cocktail each on the Thursday night for those staying on site in the cabins. Now to the price, it is €90 per cabin per night, so if 6 of you share then it is only €15 a night and pro rata more if fewer of you occupy a cabin. Don’t forget you also get free use of the gym, pools Jacuzzi etc in this price. You will book the accommodation direct with the site BUT don’t do it yet we will give you a reference to quote when you book it shortly.
