Satur is the real VIP! (Reid McKillop)
time visitors to Almirante will know that the real VIP's for them are
their regular customers. Exciting though isn't it. Two 'celebrities' so
far this year. Nicholas Parsons who stayed with his wife, and now
Richard Branson just popping in. Makes you wonder who's going to turn up
next! (Barry Williams)

Hotel del Almirante. 5.22 AM
'Cel rogent, pluja o vent' is a Catalan proverb alluding to dawn with reddish sky presage rain or wind.
After several weeks of invariably blue skies, at little more than the five o'clock in the morning this was the color of the sky.
Clouds. Breezy South winds and some rain drops have fulfilled this portent once again. It is the popular wisdom.
