SallyWe recently asked our onsite manager, Sally, to answer a 20 question questionnaire. This was to both show the world what an amazing manager we have at our La Cala de Mijas based holiday rental homes, as well as letting everyone get to know Sally a little bit better. Almost every single review we receive these days mention Sally and what a wonderful experience our guests have with her. She is super friendly and knowledgeable.

6) …and how about the last drink?  Battuta along the Jardin Botanico strip …  staggering distance home!


7) What is your favorite restaurant in or near La Cala and why? El Oceano Hotel is just amazing.  Fabulous frontline beach setting with indoor and outdoor dining, overlooking the bay of la Cala.   The food is superb quality, very reasonably priced for lunch or evening dinner and the service is impeccable.  My favorite is the outdoor  pool with swim up bar.

8) What do you feel would be the best way to survive a zombie apocalypse? Become a zombie and eat everyone else before I get eaten.

12) Favorite beachside restaurant?  La Bomba has really great fish and nice wine!


13) Who would win in a fight between a Ninja and a Samurai, considering that the Ninja was all out of smoke grenades? The Samurai as he would have his sword

16) Where would you recommend doing the majority of your grocery shopping in La Cala? Just at the end of the road toLa Cala there is a brand new Lidl Superstore.  Or Supersol in the village if you can’t live without salad cream and HP sauce. 


17.…and where would you go for an emergency beer, I mean soda-run!  BP Garage right opposite serves 24 hours. In dire emergency you can buy a can of beer from Lidl to drink on the way.
