Are you a Funky Monkey … enjoy our new tapas lounge bar.

Monday, May 18th, 2015



Funky Monkey, Condado’s new tapas lounge bar has been really welcomed and highly rated since it opened just a few weeks ago in Al Kasar.


Funky monkey is a stylish lounge bar with excellent attentive staff serving authentic indian tapas. Sit and relax on the sofas while enjoying some of the best Indian dishes in the area.


Choose your beverage, pick your tapas and enjoy the atmosphere at Funky Monkey.




Funky Monkey is a must visit for the food, the service, and the atmosphere.

We wish Darren and his staff all the best in this new venture.

Find the Funky Monkey next door to Restaurant Sofia, Al Kasar.

This week we will take a look at all the businesses operating in Al Kasar, Condado De Alhama.

I have watched this resort grow from nothing and to see where we are today is just brilliant. Condado De Alhama has something for everyone, young and old, we are also fortunate enough to have a great community working together to make this resort the best in the area.



Only days left before ALL holders of bank accounts in Spain must register their ID with their banks

Saturday, April 25th, 2015


Many owners on Condado have only days left to register a digital ID with their bank or face having their accounts frozen.

This is a new law that was passed in Spain in 2010 to prevent money laundering but 5 years later many banks have not got around to letting their account holders know what they need to do and the implications of not doing it. Basically all you need to do to simplify things is contact your bank before the end of the month and make sure they have your current passport. If you fail to do this the bank of Spain..(not your personal bank, don´t shout at the teller) can freeze your account and cancel your direct debits refusing to pay any bills. You will then have the headache and expense of setting them all up again and maybe even re connecting utilities. Of course, all costs incurred will be yours.

I don´t know if you can imagine the chaos this is causing not only to the clients but also to the banks. Many expats do not speak Spanish and simply delete text messages and e mails in a language they don´t understand.

YOU MANY NOT NEED TO DO ANYTHING IF, you opened your bank account within the last 2 years, your bank SHOULD have automatically applied this new law to your account and you should be fine but I would take the time to check, especially as we are approaching the holiday season.

Another bright idea from the Spanish banking system :)

A beautiful time in Murcia

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015




If you are planning a trip to Condado De Alhama, Murcia this week you will be thrilled with the beautiful weather we have for you. You can expect plenty of sunshine with temperatures in the mid to high 20´s.

Its a beautiful time of year in Murcia as the almond tree blossoms display themselves in the area, truly stunning against a blue sky.


This time of year is also a wonderful time to visit the national park of the  Sierra Espuña, with clear visibility you will be able to see Condado De Alhama from the mirador and all the surrounding areas. Hotel Mariposa, can be found in the village of Gebas, a beautiful place to enjoy lunch or a cocktail as you enjoy the scenery.

El puerto De Mazarrón is also stunning this time of year, secluded beaches and calm seas, with enough restaurants open along the boulevard to feed and water you.



What a beautiful place to call home or second home.

Corvera Airport reported to be opening April 2nd ….

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

This video was released this month by the Murcia tourist board to preview the new Corvera airport to open on April 2nd. Ryanair, air Europa and Air Berlin all reported as being interested and in negotiations with Corvera.

As you watch and I am sure enjoy the short movie remember elections for regional parties takes place in May 2015 so there are lots of stories with different conflicting news making it impossible to know what is really going on with this or any other project.

Is it politics or is Corvera opening April 2nd 2015? We will have to wait and see.

The one thing about Spanish politics is they keep life exciting, opening and start dates of their star projects are always just a few months ahead, when these dates come and go there is another date published for you to be excited about.

I hope for Condado and for Murcia that this airport opens soon, only 20 minutes from the resort it will no doubt make short trips to Condado a lot more viable for many people.

Suspension of CPR service

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014



This article has been submitted to us by CPR secretary Alicia Saunders.

CPR has been running its emergency medical service, 24 hours, 7 days a week for a year now but at present we only have 5 responders so we cannot maintain this service.  From the beginning of November, we have reduced the 24 hour call out service to a limited number of days and run a telephone advice service when responders are not available.  The reduced service will remain until we can train more volunteers and as yet we do not have enough responders to run a training course.  For information the responder rota will be published on the CPR website each week.

We desperately need volunteers to train as responders. We have the money to pay for volunteers to be trained as Responders as Condado owners are very generous.  If you value the CPR service, especially if you are a resident, it is time to come forward and volunteer so that we can return to the emergency call out service 24/7. If we don’t receive any more volunteers we won’t be able to offer any service in the summer.  The more volunteers we have the less of a burden it becomes.

So please, seriously consider our plea. If you are interested in becoming a Responder or help with CPR please contact Eliza at
