The tournament has attracted some of the best International darts players from throughout Europe all hoping to win the first prizes of 2000 Euros for the Men’s champion and 1000 Euros for the Ladies champion.
The tournament will start off on Friday evening with a warm up blind pairs competition, which means you can not choose your partner as you have to play with the person whom comes out in the draw with you….. if you want to enter the draw just turn up by 7PM to register, you may be playing with a world champion or an international star.
Saturday morning will see the Men’s pairs & ladies pairs competition getting the Main tournament underway, The  Ladies individuals event is taking place in the afternoon…. don’t miss this event as it has the top 3 Ladies in the WORLD playing for the crown.
Sunday morning is a Mixed competition & then the men go to battle in the Men’s Individuals competition…. you just wont believe the standard of the tournament with 180s being scored for fun.
Sunday evening is finals night, this is being played on the stage in the Condado club and is being hosted by a professional master of ceremonies Mr John Fowler whom regularly works with the likes of Eric Bristow & Phil the power Taylor. The Evening format will be : Ladies semi finals, Men’s semi finals, mixed competition final, Ladies pairs final, Men’s pairs final, Ladies individuals final & finishing with the Men’s individuals final & presentation of awards.
The tournament is free of charge to spectators throughout the weekend, but if you would like a free table for the finals evening for your group of friends you will need to book through the organisers during the weekend.

Bob Anderson is staying on Condado for two weeks, before and after the tournament to take in the ambience of our fantastic resort and to play as much golf as possible.
Bob is a talented golfer whom recently hit a hole in one whilst playing on the pro celebrity tour.
If you would like to come down and meet Bob and support his efforts in making this tournament a success & hopefully a firm fixture on the darts calendar for years to come he will be holding a meet & greet session  at 7PM on Friday 17th in the Condado club.
If you would like to enter any of the various competitions taking place or would just like to come down to watch the action, everybody is welcome at the Bob Anderson fun in the sun darts tournament.

A new release from Condado´s own author, James Raven

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

Random Targets

 

A new book by crime writer James Raven, who owns an apartment on Condado, has just been published. Random Targets is about a sniper who causes carnage on Britain’s motorways by firing at motorists. James wrote most of the novel while staying on the resort last year.

The book – his ninth – has already attracted rave reviews:

‘Random Targets is an incredible edge-of-your-seat ride. The action starts quickly and never stops, keeping your heart racing the whole way through,’ Online Bookclub.

‘In Random Targets, British Author James Raven has successfully recreated a shattering sense of fear,’ Bestthrillers.com.

‘Random Targets is the third book in the DCI Jeff Temple series and is a well-plotted and compelling story. Raven keeps up the tension throughout the story, and the action fairly sizzles until the very end,’ Readers Favorite reviews (US).

The ebook and hardback are available from most online stores including Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Random-Targets-James-Raven-ebook/dp/B00MNMBACA/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1412057824&sr=1-1&keywords=random+targets

There’s a video trailer at:

Congratulations to James on his latest release and we wish him all the success.

Something many of our clients have been very successful with this year

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

 

This year has been one of the most successful rental years for Condado De Alhama which is fantastic!

As we all know, its becoming increasingly important in 2014, for us to take steps to save energy. The AC guard card meter is something many of our clients have installed, and is very effective at lowering electricity bills and saving energy. What we have noticed is how much less the guests in our apartments are using the Air Conditioning, after having one of these installed.

It also works really well for non renters, as even your friends and family can be a little forgetful when it comes to the air conditioning. Which we all know can add up very quickly if its not kept and eye on. In fact, the majority of our apartments that have had these installed, do not rent publicly.

Check the link to find out more.

If you missed our FIESTA 2014 take a look then make plans to join us next year.

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

Take a minute and enjoy the video of the Condado De Alhama FIESTA 2014. This video will give you a glimpse of Condado De Alhama in August. Some owners never visit in high season, hopefully after watching the video you will change that in 2015 and come and take part in the festivities.

Thank you to Mileniun Levante and the fiesta committee for working so hard to make summer 2014 one that will bring many tourists back to the resort next year xx

September, a whole different world on Condado De Alhama

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

Al Kasar market

People that visit the resort in July and August couldn´t imagine the difference a few weeks can make to the overall experience of Condado De Alhama. In a matter of a week we go from this (pictured above) to this.

 

It´s September, its cooler in the mornings and evenings but the days are still mostly warm and beautiful. Off the resort, this is the perfect time of year to enjoy some of the wonderful scenery of the local area coves and natural parks.

 

Cabo Cope and other coves like it are deserted this time of year but so beautiful to visit for the day with a picnic. Although the boat tours and tourist activities have come to an end in most of the towns there is still so much to do. Adventure Espuña, located at the hotel Mariposa offer some great days out full of adventure.

If your idea of a great holiday is peace and tranquility, you will love Condado De Alhama and Murcia this time of year.

The ladies have been very creative and active in their fundraising ideas, a big thank you to them from the whole community. Eliza, the co-ordinator of CPR has been invited to attend Mondays Coffee morning so that the girls can present CPR with the cheque.

All Ladies visiting Condado have been welcomed into the group for what has grown into not only coffee mornings but a whole host of activities enjoyed with friends.    This week the Ladies Coffee Group will enjoy together the following activities;

Monday 22nd September Ladies Coffee Morning 11.30 am. will be held at the ice cream parlour.

Desperately needed rains arrive in Murcia

Posted in: Resort Updates | Comments Off

The sun'll come out tomorrow Condado xx

The sun’ll come out tomorrow Condado xx

Finally we have a little rain to add to our collection tanks, not much but a little is certainly better than none. Murcia has been recorded recently as one of the driest regions in the world, if that gives you an idea of how appreciative we are for the short lived sprinkle.

The rains didn’t keep the golfer off the course although a short break was needed in their game. Its always sad when people are taking their holidays and they loose a day of precious sunshine to clouds and rain but for the locals it was a celebration. More rains are due this evening but the forecast for the next couple of days is beautiful sunshine with temperatures in the high 20′s so back to the pools people, the sun’ll come out tomorrow.
