You're quite right Dave, This time I have brought spending money over ie; for the market, calling in at Stafford's, Harley's Bar, Coffee Corner and Makro for T-bone steaks, so have no real need to draw out.
But thanks for the advice of where it's free if I ever do need to. :001_Thank_You5:

Whats their exchange rate like,there has to be a catch somewhere :?

Alan, CR used to have a link that gave you all the banks rate at one time for the day, or should I say by the hour, he has given it to me twice but I have lost the bloody link twice, but if we can get it back off him it is really helpful, you can check it before you go out to change any money and see who has the best rate at that time.
Ayudha Banks almost have the best rates all the time.

As a Mod, he could place it on here as a 'sticky' item that remains on top of the thread list.

They were pretty good Alan, I cooked them on an electric grill that i'd bought.
I find that the steaks in general are good from Makro. They are frozen Alan, but let them thaw out properly and they look and cook good. :GrinNod1:

Old thread sorry.


How is the Majestic Hotel these days. Not so new and gleaming, I'd Guess?


Has the broken tiles in the pool been mended yet???

Just tried to book with Majestic over X-mas / New year - they said no problem - however the pool will be closed until mid January 2020 !!! They did offer transport to a nearby fitness center with outdoor pool free of charge......

There are nicer hotels very close by with a lot more entertainment. I only book it because I use it as a stop over next to the bus station and saves lugging cases around.
