THE BLOGGER COVER

 

A new book by crime author James Raven, who has an apartment on Condado de Alhama, has just been published. It’s called The Blogger and is about the murder of an online activist.

The book, his eleventh, is published by Robert Hale and has already attracted positive reviews:

‘A fast-paced and plot-twisting read, Raven’s newest work is a well-written and timely thriller perfect for our modern age,’ Online Bookclub.

‘The Blogger is an enjoyable read for any lover of thrillers, mysteries, and plot-twists,’ BestsellersWorld.

As usual James wrote much of the book during several stays on Condado de Alhama last summer.

‘It’s a great place to write because it’s such a peaceful place,’ he said.

James’s previous books include Malicious, Stark Warning, Dying Wish and After the Execution.

James has another book out in May which will be published under a pseudonym for Avon/Harper Collins.

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

IMG_3469

 

New parking spaces have been created on Condado De Alhama to improve the summer parking options and availability for visitors and owners of Naranjos, Condado. The blue lines mark the special parking areas available on the inner ring road between Naranjos 2 and Naranjos 8. With over 8000 visitors expected in the months of July and August these will be very welcome.

Presidents will now decide if the same option should be made on Jardines. Although jardines have numbered spaces, with only 1 space available for each apartment and very few visitor parking spaces it will be considered in the coming week and contracted immediately should they decide to go forward.

In the meantime, Jardines numbering is almost complete so finding your allocated parking space in Jardines will be a little easier this summer.

Author James Raven of Condado De Alhama NEW RELEASE

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

A new book by crime novelist James Raven, who has an apartment on Condado, has just been published. Dying Wish is about sinister events in Britain’s ancient New Forest National Park.

The book, his tenth, has already attracted positive reviews:

‘Thoroughly enjoyable, no frills, no nonsense, just good old detective work in Modern Britain. Superb.’ Books Monthly.

‘Dying Wish will entertain fans of the genre. The narrative rattles on at a decent pace, and there is a very clever plot twist at the end – one which experienced crime fiction readers may well be able to see coming,’ Crime Fiction Lover.

‘This one kept me on the edge of my seat and was super interesting,’ Books and Ladders.

James wrote much of the book during several stays on Condado last summer.

‘I love working on the resort because of the peace a quiet, and when I get fed up with writing I go and have a swim,’ he told us.

DYING WISH

Dying Wish, published by Robert Hale, is available as an ebook and hardback from most online stores including Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dying-Wish-Temple-James-Raven-ebook/dp/B00YMSIEZO/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1435575807&sr=1-1&keywords=dying+wish

James’s next book is due out next January. It’s called The Blogger and details can be found at:

Its 44 degrees today, a good book and the swimming pool or beach. What could be better.

Congratulations James on your new release.

Saturday evening market at Condado De Alhama

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

IMG_3434

 

Last night saw the opening of the Condado De Alhama summer Saturday night street market. This year the market is located on the outer ring road just to the side of the security entrance by Al Kasar. The market works well in this location following previous years of being inside the resort gates and it is hoped that it will attract more visitors from neighbouring resorts and villages, although this was not the reason for the change in location. As Al Kasar changes ownership it was not possible for IRM to give permission for the use of their parking area. The bars and restaurants seemed busy by 8pm so hopefully this move will not affect business to our bars and restaurants which last year saw greatly increased numbers on market days.

IMG_3436 (1)

 

 

If you re a visitor to the market make an evening of it and come through the gates to Al Kasar and see whats new this year. We chose to enjoy our meal last night in the new Indian Tapas lounge bar, Funky Monkey which was great food and service as always but there are so many great places to choose to eat in Al Kasar this year everyone will be able to find just what they are looking for.

Don’t forget, also new this year we have Maries Bokao, serving great food all day, starting in the mornings with a new breakfast buffet. The ice Cream parlour is now open everyday and has a new fresh baked pizza bar, well worth a visit. El Rincon, bakery and cafe also open daily from 7am with fresh bread, coffees and pastries. Big G´s have a fabulous American menu with daily fresh Cheese cakes to temp you and so much more.

Condado has come so far again this year and things are set to continue getting better and better. Enjoy the summer season of 2015 come on down to Al Kasar, Condado De Alhama.
