Recommendation- Interpreter at the Hospital                                                         If anyone needs an interpreter at the hospital I would highly recommend Pamela (Mobile No. 609040709). I had to take my wife to the hospital last Friday. I needed an interpreter and I got Pamela’s number through Digamextra. She met us at an agreed place and she took us from there to the hospital where she dealt with my wife’s situation very efficiently. My wife needed an injection and Pamela noticed that the room where this would be done was sitting empty so when she checked what was happening it was discovered that the doctor hadn’t put the request through on the computer. If it had not been for Pamela’s knowledge of the workings of the hospital we could have been sitting there for a very long time. Not only that but she telephoned the next morning to enquire about how my wife was doing. Very thoughtful of her. Can’t recommend her highly enough.                                                   David & Dorothy McMillan


Recommendations Property Management Team –                                                In response to a request for property management recommendations.                         I would like to highly recommend Casa Care Canillas covering the area from Nerja to Torre del Mar and Inland., Seb and Paul , the owners are 100 % trustworthy and reliable. Their primary concern is the happiness of their clients and their clients’ guests. We have been extremely happy with their work and more importantly, our guests have been very very happy and for us – happy guests means repeat bookings and good word of mouth. They apply those little touches to ensure guests feel welcome and comfortable from the moment they arrive.                                                We have used numerous companies in the past Seb and Paul have been the best to date.  You can contact them on – 600696574 Or you can contact them via their Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/casacarecanillas/


 Recommendations Needed-  repair to air-conditioning unit                       We have an air conditioning unit on the wall which is not working correctly.              We found 2 people who advertised their services (one of these was recommended on Digame!). So we contacted them by phone and the other one on their Facebook page. We left messages, and neither of them got back to us. So this time we are looking for someone who is reliable and will at least talk to us. We don’t mind if they say that they don’t want to do the job, as long as we can get a response.                 We are in Torrox Park and can be contacted on email,                                          oddjobtony at gmail dot com.
