Thank you once again for providing my wife and I an amazing respite break at a crucial time for us.
I would like to thank Give us time, Ramada by Wyndham and everyone else who helped make our break possible. My wife and I have been severely struggling with stress and our mental health and were at breaking point!
Having not been away for four years, I was told about this charity and a possible free holiday accommodation in Malaga. I was advised that it’s a good idea to price up flights and times before calling Alex, as it’s booked fast for you if it’s still available. I called Alex after researching flights etc… and spoke with him directly. What a lovely and approachable bloke.
We have never been to Spain before and we’re so amazed by the self catering accommodations size, privacy and for the first time ever a sea view!
The food, people of Spain and staff at the resort were amazing. We did spend a lot of money on flights, hire car, insurance, dog care etc… however it was worth every penny allowing us respite and relaxation to get away to such a lovely place.
Having been cold water swimming all year we were up every morning for a 16 degrees sea swim 10 minutes walk from our accommodation, the locals thought we were superhuman! The area is very quiet and away from any party areas. We walked regularly into Fuengirola and visited the capital Malaga via an hour and a half train journey. We followed a video on you tube that showed great places to eat and drink around the capital. This was a real highlight of the holiday.
The one thing that is unconnected to Give us time and Ramada but worth mentioning is the possibility of flight cancellations at the moment. Be prepared you may have your flights cancelled or delayed and the extra costs and work constraints that can be incurred. Fortunately we had good bosses and a credit card to cover the extras.
So please accept our heartfelt thanks for everything you gave us to help with our recovery. You really are lifesavers
