Visited Muchamiel for a PPL Revalidation (LST for SEP rating 2> <5 yrs), and found the place great. I used an examiner called Javier Orjega, who is a JAA Examiner able to sign off the JAA Licenses, and trained primarily in the USA so speaks great English.
The airfield is fairly busy, it has a lot of traffic related to the bush fire fighting such as the Kamov Helicopters and Spanish Air Tractor 802F Seaplanes operating, in additional to general commercial twins and the aero club aerocraft, make it a really friendly a welcoming place.
There is a bar with seating outside, to enjoy and watch the aviation activities.
I'd definately recommend this place as somewhere to visit, whether your an expat wanting to revalidate and fly, or a tourist wanting a bit of flying in Spain.
One of the experiences I put down as very very good :-)
Also to note, the Air/Ground operate in English without a problem, and Alicante Tower/Radar also were very obliging in English.
