This is a "feel good" movie. It has a fun plot, the actors all put in a good performance, and it was filmed in gorgeous Mediterranean locations. If you like vacationing in the Mediterranean area, this movie whets your appetite for another visit. Most of the movie was filmed in and around the city of Almeria, located on the south coast of Spain. This area has been used frequently for "spaghetti westerns" because of desert-like scenery. The scenes of "Tangiers" were filmed right in the city of Almeria. I visited here in 1984, and the city still had many winding alleys and whitewashed houses that looked like they could have been Tangiers. The lighthouse and rocky beach scenes were filmed at nearby Cabo de Gato. I revisited Almeria in 1999, and it was unrecognizable - all ugly hi-rise buildings. The Cabo de Gato area is still gorgeous, though. There are many beach houses near the lighthouse, but it is now a protected natural reserve area. I've never been able to find the beach club in the movie, although the scenery is very much like the area around the nearby town of San Jose.
