Thank you for posting the information about the Grand Marina. We had been down there in 2006 and the area seemed seedy and living on the glories of the Olympics which were held in that area. I feel much better now about using this hotel and letting AMA take us the whole way. We did check into transfers to Arles and out TA suggested that the price was about $500 plus transfers from the airport. Using AMA's hotel seems to be a good choice now, thanks to you!!!!
Please be on touch when you return in a few weeks and report on the trip and the quality of the food. Please let me know how the Tapas Boqueria tour was. We tried to do this on our own but didn't know how to choose wisely or choose a good place. We are excited about our trip in Nov, as cool as it will be. I really appreciate your imput. Safe travels!
