A few weeks ago I boarded that early morning Easy Jet Flight out of Stansted (UK) and headed off down to Southern Spain.
First thing I'll say about using Easy Jet at Stansted is give yourself plenty of time because, although I arrived in the terminal around two hours before lift off the queue was huge Even better, only take hand baggage and check in on line. Also, I regard it as essential that when you book your flight on-line to tick the box which says speedy boarding. It only costs Ģ10.00 extra r/t and makes all the difference to be the first on the plane and cherry pick those exit seats however, on my return leg the benefit was cancelled out because an extremely fat ole sow decided to sit next to me
On arrival at Malaga and from leaving the aircraft it was fully 50 minutes before our bags were delivered on the carousel but that is Spanish efficiency for you.
My destination was Puerto Banus and as it was still only around 11am, rather than get rid of 60 euros on a taxi, I caught the bus to Marbella for 4.60, right outside the terminal building. The service is at hourly intervals and takes around 40 minutes. From the bus station an 8 minute taxi ride to the port costs 10 euros.
Accomodation was arranged by British travel agent called Continental Villas whom I rate highly and in around ten years of using them they have never let me down. As in previous trips, I stayed at the Benabola Apartment/Hotel right on the money in the port and the cost was very reasonable considering the location.
