Hi all

I spent one week in the Roquetas De Mars at the beginning of May. It was my first time in Spain and I really enjoyed my stay. The trip was organised by a local travel agent and the hotel was lovely. However, the hotel that the travel agent booked for me was closed for renovations when I arrived and it was just by luck that my friend could speak Spanish and was able to find out that I had to transfer to another hotel. I want to return again before Xmas but I would rather organise the trip and hotel stay myself as travel agents that I have spoken too will only deal with specific hotels and I want a hotel/accommodation in Almeria so that I can be near to bus and train services. As I am new to travel and booking online and I will be travelling alone and cannot speak Spanish, can anyone advise me as to how reliable online hotel booking is - meaning of course that if I book a hotel there will be no problem when I arrive there. Also what is the best time to book my week and if any problems arise is there anywhere in Almeria where I can get help? Thank you.

if you want to stay in Almeria city there are many hotels to choose from. Booking sites are fine to use eg Trivago, booking,com etc. Also the city hotels donīt close out of season like the ones in Roquetas.

If you have a smart phone thereīs a good free app you can get which translates English to Spanish and reverse, either by speech or written or even photo. look in google playstore. Friends use this when they go to the Dr etc

Thank you for your reply. I want to return to Almeria again as I liked the place very much. I do not have a smart phone, my present phone is very basic and needs renewed so I am going to check out the smart phone as that language facility would be great to have.
