* Marbella dermatologist

One of our readers needs a recommendation and asks, ”Hi could I ask you to ask your readers if anybody knows where I can get treatment for acne or knows a good dermatologist in Marbella/Estepona?”

We have an answer for you, so if you are also looking for a dermatologist too, take a look at this page. Or, if you have had a good experience with another doctor, please add it to our list. Click here to read more…

* Birthday parties at the cinema

One of our readers would like some help and asks, ”Does anybody know if either the cinema at La Canada or Plaza del Mar in Marbella offer a cinema party for children? If so do you also know what this includes other than the tickets and popcorn, also a rough guide to the price. I can not find this info on their website. Many thanks if you can help.”

We haven’t had an experience like this ourselves (other than just taking a bunch of kids to the cinema at regular price), so would really appreciate if any of you could let us know if you have had a party at the cinema before. Click here to read more…

* Mommy & Me classes in Fuengirola

One of our readers is looking for a baby group and asks, ”Are there any Mums and Babes/Toddler groups or meet-ups in Fuengirola? We've just moved here and I would love to meet some Mums. I have two girls, aged 2,5 years and 8 months.”

If you are in the Fuengirola area and know of any groups, please get in touch. If you have a toddler and/or baby, but don’t know of any groups, why don’t you get in touch with Natalie and form one? Click here to read more…

TIP: Moving to a new place with a small child is always a challenge, so I am sure this new resident would appreciate a bit of support. Remember when you first moved?
