"The pupils from the school had a fantastic time playing in the hall and gardens and dressing up. It was an ideal situation for a big hallowe'en party with plenty of space and 40 active kids. They really enjoyed the games then dinner and a sleepover in the big 'bodega'...Not much sleep that night for the kids or teachers! The next morning the parents came and sampled and excellent 'pica pica' before collecting their happy but tired children" (Paul Prestigne, Escaan International School, Nov 2012)

"I thought my lap top could never be repaired. It was crashing every 5 mins and seemed to have a terrible virus. I took it to someone in Sitges and they told me that it was so badly damaged that I had lost everything and might as well buy a new computer. Someone had recommended RibesPC and I spoke to an English guy called Duncan. He took my computer and totally fixed it. He also put it all in English and changed my operating system from Vista which I hated. His price is really reasonable and I can honestly say that I highly recommend him for any issue you might be having"
