BRAND NEW VENUE FOR 2019:

Hotel Puerto Juan Montiel Spa & Base Nautica is a delightful four star family run hotel located directly on the sea front promenade overlooking its own marina and a long sandy bay. With just 126 bedrooms, friendly staff and warm and relaxing public areas it lends for a wonderful group environment. The fact that the same family has run the hotel for many years and are involved in the day to day running of the hotel is clearly evident and reflected in the high standards of service, and the warm welcome it extends to its guests.

The Mediterranean city of Aguilas right on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea enjoys a warm microclimate and remains pleasantly warm throughout the whole year. In February the temperature does not drop below 18C so visitors can enjoy sitting all fresco in the fabulous city square with an aperitif under the trees already full of bloom. This historic Spanish city with its old buildings, hill top castle, museums, Roman Baths and streets brimming with local tradition, pavement spilling tapas bars, and local shops full of leather bags & shoes has so much to offer visitors all year around.

The harbour side is awash with colourful fishing boats sitting side by side with sleek yachts and small tour boats offering boat trips along the coast. Two beautiful sandy beaches flank the old town. The beachfront tourist area around Hotel Puerto Juan Montiel Spa & Base is quiet in winter, but getting into the centre of Aguilas is so simple. Take a 20 minute walk along the flat sea front promenade from the hotel itself, or hop on the local bus that departs regularly from outside our hotel. Make sure you visit on Saturday and lose yourself in the weekly market!

Golfers can take advantage of some two excellent golf courses within 10 minutes of the hotel. The Aguilon Golf is renowned for being the best desert golf course in Europe.

The optional excursions are also highly recommended and only short distances from Aguilas. Visit Cartagena where you can experience more than 2000 years in one day -from Punic, Roman, Naval Military, Revolutionary and Modernistic eras. Enjoy a cultural and shopping day in the regions capital, Murcia. Visit the Cathedral, and shop in the famous Corte Ingles with its famous boutique shops.

OUR BRIDGE PROGRAMMES

During your duplicate bridge holidays nothing is obligatory, you can play in as many or as few bridge sessions as you wish. Our bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break and in addition to playing bridge, we will always endeavour to provide a minimum of two bridge seminars for breaks of 7 days or more.

All of our bridge holidays include bridge seminars with handouts in addition to a varied and interesting duplicate bridge programme. We use duplimated boards every evening to ensure fairness and consistency. Bridge hand records are provided, as well as bridge partners if needed.

Your duplicate bridge will usually be available twice daily, at 2.30pm and 7.45pm. The afternoon sessions usually finish between 4.45pm and 5pm, the evenings between 10.45pm - 11.15pm. The afternoons are normally given over to open pairs/teams. We endeavour to vary the evening sessions, with a balance between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week bridge break.

During all evening sessions, we utilise a duplimate machine, which means we are able to produce hand record sheets at the end of the session and when we have two or more sections, both can play the same hands. On our UK duplicate bridge breaks, provided numbers allow, we usually will lay on an "Early Bird" afternoon session on the day of arrival.

We don’t forget you are on holiday, our bridge programmes allow time for relaxation plus giving you plenty of opportunity to explore the surrounding area and relax.
