Francesca: “Years of fun at Hotel Pez Espada!”
“My Mum first started going to Pez Espada with her parents in 1964.
In 1988 I had my first holiday there with my Mum, Dad, twin sister, brother, grandma, great Aunty and great uncle and we returned nearly every year until I was 16!
Hotel Pez Espada is where I made some of my happiest childhood memories, everything about it was magical from the pool to the food to the nightly entertainment, (who else remembers the magician with the black beard??!) to the amazing staff who we love so much, especially big Joe the bar manager who referred to us as “family!!” as soon as he saw us back every year and paquito who used to make me and my brother and sister a grenadine and milk at the bar downstairs! I returned with my husband in 2013 for a holiday while I was 5 months pregnant with my first child and got that lovely photo with joe and Paquito, they recognised me straight away even though they hadn’t seen me since I was 16.
We all love this hotel and everyone who works so hard to make it as special as it was and still is, it is truly a jewel in the Costa.”
