Spain with its Flamenco, Paella and Sangria has long been a favourite destination of the British tourist. We have several units in some of the most popular regions in the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca as well as units in some of Spain's major cities.
Costa del Sol
We are able to offer units in Torremolinos, Torre del Mar, Estepona, Marbella.
Torremolinos is probably the best known of the resorts in the area and has been playing host to British holiday makers since the sixties.
Over the years, Torremolinos has evolved as an attractive and appealing resort, noted for its clean sandy beaches, wide choice of hotels and restaurants and unrivelled variety of entertainment, activities and nightlife available. At the height of summer, the resort has a great appeal for the younger set, with a reputation for its hectic nightlife. Out of season, however, it takes on a different character.
Packed with tantalising shops, thronging with people of every nationality and located right at the heart of the town is the pedestrian only Calle San Miguel, the main artery of the town. This smartly paved pedestrianised street is lined with boutiques and shops with a great variety of goods on offer, attracting a constant flow of people.
The dialysis centre is located out of the centre of town but only a 5 to 10 mins taxi ride from most of the resorts hotel and apartment complex's. The centre is large and caters for both it's Spanish nationals and holiday patients from many countries, English, German and Spanish are spoken.
Torre del Mar
Torre del Mar is one of the main tourist resorts on the Costa del Sol. Located in the eastern part of the Coast, and is known for its four kilometres of sandy beaches lined with restaurants, bars and apartments. At the seafront end of Paseo de Larios is a line of bars and discos known as El Copo, which is extremely lively at the weekend.
One of the resort's most pleasant features is the esplanade which follows the coast to reach the Marina which has over 200 berths and offers sailing and a variety of other watersports. Its lively cafés and restaurants also provide a good place in which to idle the time away, as well as enjoy excellent seafood which is served in many of the restaurants.
The dialysis centre is close to the beachfront and is under the same management as the unit in Torremolinos, it is very convienient for holidays in the Nerja area.
We also have dialysis centres in Marbella and Estapona, neither accepts the EHIC as payment.

Night life is lively in Barcelona, more for the locals than the tourists. Have a drink at a chiringuito bar on the Barceloneta beach, then after dark join the locals for a pub crawl at the Barri Gotic for a huge selection of tapas bars, wine bars, cocktail lounges and even the few Irish pubs. For the best Tapas in town try Ciudad Condal on Rambla de Catalunya.
Walking is the best way to visit the Old Town, Gothic quarter streets, the old fisherman's village of Barceloneta and the beach. Following on from this walk to the fantastic Palau de la Musica Catalana in the Borne district, leading you all the way over to the garden of Barcelona - La Cuitadella. This is a beautiful park in Barcelona and is a really great way to spend a day walking.
Metro stations are the quickest way to get around. You can buy a 2 day ticket for around 11 Euros, which can combine the bus system and the new 'tranvia'. Using the public transportation system will save you time and money. For a larger route around Barcelona use the Bus Turistic; it has 2 routes and visits the major tourist places in Barcelona, also known as the Hop-on Hop-off bus.

Sight seeing around the city begins in the old quarter where you can see the marks left by the Romans life hidden beneath Arab ruins and modern churches and palaces. The city is famed for its nightlife, the wild Las Fallas spring festival and the stunning architecture of its Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias.
To the north, along the Costa del Azahar (Orange Blossom Coast) is a string of low-key resorts plus the historic site of Sagunto. Soutwards along the Costa Blanca stretches some of Spain's finest beaches.
Granada has an edge over other Andalucian cities. It is a youthful city, with a free-tapas culture, innovative bars, and a friendly culture. The Islamic past feels recent as a growing North African population has filled the Albayzin streets with kebab and cake shops.
The City of Granada is located at the foot of the sierra Nevada mountains at the confluences of the Darro and Genil rivers. The city has been shaped by the hills, where the old districts in the Albaicin and the Alhambra were founded, brimming with steep narrow streets, beautiful nooks and crannies and marvelous landscapes. The new part of the city is situated on the plain and where the busy streets around the Cathedral are found.
