Alicante–Elche Airport, originally named El Altet, is the sixth busiest airport in Spain based on passenger numbers, and the main airport for the Valencian Community and the Region of Murcia.
If you have travelled to La Manga Club via Alicante airport in the past be prepared for some changes as the airport has grown in size considerably and may be unrecognisable from what you remember from previous visits. This is now an ultra modern airport with state of the art facilities that can still be found in the same location within Alicante but has been enlarged to enable more passenger capacity. The design of the building is impressive from a far and with a large check in area and a larger baggage claim travel in the forthcoming busy summer months should result in a smooth journey and experience for everyone.
The Last Drop has been one of La Manga Clubs best known watering holes for many years now and now they have expanded by introducing their new establishment at La Manga Club, The First Drop.
The Last Drop, opposite the petrol station at La Manga Club, continues to offer a large selection of wines, beers and spirits, something for everyone and you are waited on whilst either watching your favourite sporting event or listening to the live entertainment throughout the summer.
The First Drop is in Bellaluz Square so just a 5 minute walk from The Last Drop and is open for breakfast from 9 am. You can choose from a full English breakfast to lighter bites.
The fabulous bodega in Los Belones close to La Manga Club is no more, a little sad as it always a great place to shop for wine however it has been transformed and the exterior of the buildings character has been retained with some barrels and stools placed outside so you can stop for a coffee or beer during the day with a drop by window. The biggest transformation is the inside which has been turned into a beautiful restaurant which is now called Pablo Guardiolas.
You will find Guardiolas on your left as you enter Los Belones, just before Via Romana, so parking is not a problem.
Pablo Guardiola, who can be seen regularly greeting his customers and friends, and Juani in the kitchen are the fourth generation of the same family who have been running their very successful restaurant in Los Nietos since 1934.
