Hello there,

I need to open a bank account in Playa Blanca to purchase a property. Please could anyone tell me if they are happy or unhappy with the different banks they have used? An estate agent recommend me to Sadabell but I would appreciate other opinions.

Thanks,

Andrew

We used Banco Sabadell in Playa Blanca when we purchased last October and they have been great. I can send you email details privately of the contact manager who speaks reasonably good English   You have to be present to set up the account but you can email him when you are available and he will organise an appointment.

He’ll set up your current account organise your bank cards and online banking with temporary passwords and you’re off

 Once you are established there is nothing stopping you changing banks later but getting set up is a priority. I’ve never found them to be anything other than helpful. You can email any issues to him directly at the branch unlike here when you have to go through a call centre   Best of luck

Hi Bob,

I can help you with this. Use the email address below. The account he will set up for you will have a quarterly charge around 40 Euros but I think it is still worth going with. You will need to book an appointment with him and take your passport with you.

I bought my place last month in PB so if you need anything else just ask.
