    I wanted to surprise my boyfriend on his birthday, and it was perfectly successful! A beautiful day in a beautiful location. The service was efficient and punctual, with excellent communication and assistance. Quality food, absolutely recommended!

    Lovely park within the Madrid urban area, currently being restored, as are the historic manor houses at the top.
    The walls are interesting, with plenty of benches to rest awhile and enjoy the surroundings.
    There are lots of interesting wood carvings, including a mermaid tortoise and train.
    There are rose, fruit and kitchen gardens to admire and smell.
    Well worth a visit now.
    Note that dogs are not allowed, even on a leash and that the paths are not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.

    One of the Joy's of visiting Madrid are the innumerable parks spread throughout this most beautiful of cities and Parque De Atenas was one such park we visited.
    Its only small but cool,some nice features here and some benches to relax in ,on a roasting hot day my twin brother Stephen and I purchased some cold beers, a few sandwiches and bags of crisps and chilled out in the park and planned out the day ahead in this vibrant city.
    The park grounds are well maintained, neat and tidy and the location in the Imperial neighbourhood is cool .
    Easy to locate on Calle De Segovia near the famous bridge and most definitely well worth checking out.

    We were elected to look after our two-year old grandson for the afternoon. This rather daunting task was made so much easier at the Parque Santander. Even though it was mid-summer with afternoon heat to match, it was relatively easy to look after and amuse the young man. The park is huge, adjoining a golf driving range, and contains extensive paved walkways and running lanes within the wooded environment. There are areas for youngsters (non-smoking areas) with appropriate swings, see-saws etc. for small children to enjoy safely, which made our task so much easier.
    Definitely a great asset to the city's contribution to the health and enjoyment of the population.

    this is the stadium used by real madrids second team within the enormous real madrid training complex. take note. u can only view this impressive training complex by going to watch a real madrid castilla. or on a couple of ocassions during the year when real madrid allow the general public to watch them train. alfredo di stefano was considered by man as the greatest player in history and is considered responsible for making real madrid the greatest club in the world.

    I am a low-level intermediate skier and my 20 year old daughter had never skied before. We left our hotel in Las Rozas (25mins out from Madrid) at 0630 on Friday Saturday and Sunday morning. We were in the Valdesqui car park by 0730 and among the first 20 cars there. We started the queue for ski hire - which opened at 0830 and were among the first on the slopes which open at 0900. If you turn up at 0900 you will see the worlds longest and most disorganised queue!! On day one even though we were in the skischool queue at 0845 we had missed all the available ski school slots. We got one for my daughter on day two.
    Do not try to go up after midday for an afternoon session. We left Valdesqui at 1230 on Sunday and the traffic coming up as we went down was jammed for c.8miles!!

    The positives:
    - when the car park is full they close the road in so there is a limit to number of skiers on the slopes and the slopes were never over crowded
    - the blues and greens are PERFECT for beginners and intermediates getting their 'ski legs' back. The pistes were in excellent condition even in sunny weather
    - their are great views from the top (we had amazing weather)
    - you can ski from 0900 til 1600 and still be back in Madrid for a beer before the sun sets (we did this twice!)
    - I'm no expert but I thought the quality of skis and boots was pretty good.
    - this is a great place to learn once you get on the slopes if you have a patient partner/friend who can help you.

    The negatives:
    - if you're not prepared to go early then do not bother unless you are happy to stand in slow moving lines for a couple of hours. If you're early you'll have to wait for 45 mins but you'll be on the slopes while everyone else is still scrambling for ski hire.
    - you can only hire equipment for one day at a time so you have to do the whole process of queueing each day.
    - it is a slow process getting skis and passes - you have to queue for everything. Nothing is state-of-the-art. All very old fashioned.
    - organisation at the 2 bars/restaurants is chaos. Take a back pack with sandwiches and drinks.
    - the ski instructor was ok but nothing special. I taught my daughter to ski and after 2 days she could comfortably ski the long blues.

    Overall we had a great 3 days here but I give it 3 stars because of the early starts necesssary, the chaos of ski hire and questing, the poor food/drink. For the beginner skier though it was great.

    NOTE: IF YOU CAN GO DURING THE WEEK AND NOT WHEN THE KIDS ARE OFF SCHOOL APPARENTLY THERE ARE LESS QUEUES AND VERY EMPTY SLOPES
