ATM
« on: May 11, 2018, 09:40:19 AM »
Good morning,

Currently staying at Vera Playa Club hotel and I saw yesterday that the ATM which used to be by the roundabout at Puerto del Rey, next to Merca China has gone!

Does anybody know where nearest one is now please? I do not have a car or bicycle and prefer to walk!

Many thanks.

Bob B

CAJAMAR at Plaza Mayor, 1 in Palomares has the nearest ATM

Given all that's been said above what is the position for getting money in VP.  I'm coming over for a couple of weeks in June from UK and staying at the hotel.  Do they provide an exchange service?

Hi Dave,

Yes the hotel does provide an exchange service but not at a good rate. I always use ATMs and there are a couple at Almeria airport so if you are flying into there I would get some € to keep you going.

Does anyone know if the ATM operated by Cajamar in Villaricos is still working? When I have tried to use it the last few times I have been over it has been out of order and did look a bit neglected almost as if it had been abandoned.

When Banco Sabadell closed at Puerto Rey, they installed a stand alone ATM in between the Chinese shop and the bridge.

I notice that there is an ATM shown on the Puerto Rey map in the position you describe. Is it still there and working?

Also, roughly how long to walk from the hotel to the ATM in Palomares, bearing in mind I am not a fast walker, more of a shuffler LOL!

I am getting conflicting stories as to if the ATM in Puerto Rey is still there or not.

Perhaps someone can confirm either way so as to keep the maps up to date ?

Many thanks   :)

.... Just under 2 miles Bob and "average" walking speed is roughly 3 miles per hour (no doubt considerably less in the Spanish heat) so I guess an hour each way at a shuffle.

We drove by it twice today. It's shown on Google maps:

Yes, the ATM is still there and it works. Just before the entrance to the mini golf complex. Sabadell bank machine.
Incidentally Carmen's old bar in Hotel Street will re-open very shortly, it is now being managed by her son.

The new ATM is operated by Bankinter, so expect to be charged for cash withdrawals if you don't have an account with them.
I couldn't withdraw cash this afternoon because the new ATM was not working!
