... papers is one of chance as the local hotels often sell out to their own early riser customers.
Having feed our minds and bodies it was time to explore before the heat of the day hit the low 30' degree. Hopping onto a local bus we headed north for about an hour; the coastline is fascinating following the ups and downs of the steep foothills, crossing huge deep dry gullies carved over centuries by torrential waters. The journey tends to zigzag to ...
... The baby is fooling around in one of them-jumping and stuff . Really cute! Be prepared to need your Kleenexes LOL.
On this trip I also saw Los Giganticos, or the giant cliffs. They do sort of look like giants and thusly have each been named desperately. I cannot describe to you the beauty of that Island-but there are lots of videos of that too. So ... pop some popcorn and be prepared to watch.

... back and forth to the bar from the pool. Aside from that though it was a gorgeous spot and had some great restaurants along the boardwalk and beaches to check out. After that we drove up the coast to Playa de San Juan and then Puerto Santiago for a great late lunch. On the way home we stopped at Los Cristianos for a look around but it seemed to just be the same as Playa de las Americas but circa 1976. On Monday we booked ourselves into the cheapest accommodation we could find ...
... we made a day of walking through the city and wound our way back to the dock. I took tons of pictures to show you how beautiful this city is but all with cell phone. Hard to believe I walked off ship without my camera!
Most of the people we encountered spoke English but I really felt at a disadvantage not speaking Spanish. I don't know if we'll get back here to The Canaries, but it was a great experience to see the two islands we did. ...
... track of all the nautical miles we’ve done and we needed 2,634 to make our grand total reach an impressive 100,000. How many had we done? Unbelievably, we’d sailed a total of 2,624. I could not believe it… we were only 10 miles short. 10 miles!! So we’ve done a total of 99,990 nautical miles and will have to wait until our next cruise to reach our milestone. :-(
We had a decent breakfast in the Palms ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Granada Park Apartments Los Cristianos
Despite the Coronation St overtones of the name this is a very attractive apartment complex arranged around a spacious central area with 3 good sized circular pools - at least one of which was heated - though the largest (cold) one was still fine for a cooling swim (March). There are plenty of sunbeds but no pool towels offered so take your own. The central area is on several levels, surrounded with palms and flowering plants and also has pool tables, air hockey table and crazy golf. The cafe/bar serves reasonably priced unpretentious (English) food but the menu never seems to change. The on-site mini-supermarket is well stocked but a bit pricier than the bigger supermarkets (downhill!) in town.
Loved it couldnt ask for more
we were pleasantly surprised with this hotel, at first though we were placed in high apts. but we asked to change due to our active kids 5yrs and 3yrs old. we were placed on ground floor apts right in front of the mini golf and park, and we could not have asked for a better location. this place had everything we needed for a family holiday. maid service was 5/6 times a week apts were spotless and staff were great. the only down fall was the really good supermarket was a downhill trot and it was ok going down but getting back nearly killed you with graceries. although there was a little supermarket on site which covered the basics. so in the end we hired a car and traveled, thought tennerife on the whole was beautiful. i would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.
Granada Park was a clean and quiet hotel. The apartments were big and spacious. The hotel is a big oval area in a slope. There is a elevator but it's only in the one side of the pool area. The upper half of the apartments have a view to a small park (but you see also the ocean, it's that high). We stayed in ground floor in the upper part. There was a stove, owen, frigde, small freezer, big teracce and TV (with iTv, CNN, BBC, Skynews, Eurosport and lots of Spanish channels and few German).
Sehr saubere und komfortable Apartments. Ruhige Gegend, für alle, die einen ruhigen Urlaub in einem gut laufenden Resort suchen. Weniger für ältere Menschen geeignet, da man bergauf laufen muss. Die BBC und ITV Fernsehkanäle waren gut. Das Restaurant war während unseres Aufenthaltes nicht geöffnet (Dezember 2006). Mussten also erst 25 Minuten laufen oder 3 Euro für das Taxi zahlen, um im nahe gelegenen Los Cristianos essen gehen zu können.
Very clean comfortable apartments.
Quiet area suitable for those looking for peaceful holiday but within reach of busy resort.
Not suitable for elderly or infirm as long uphill walk to return to apartments
BBC and ITV chns very useful.
Resturant not open when we stayed during December 06 therefore 25 mins walk or 3 euros taxi to nearest meal in Los Cristianos
My husband and I stayed threre for xmas and new year.
Just returned from a weeks stay at the Granada Park appartments in Tenerife, and i had the best time ever, went in a group of four, a couple holiday and it was perfect. The appartments are beutiful, have everything you could need kitchen, living room with t.v (perfect for catching up with the soaps) big balcony looking over the lovely plants and pool area, big bathroom and big bedroom, plenty of space. The appartements were spotless and cleaned every day, the pool area was lovely plenty of sunbeds and space, the only down side of the pool was that is wasnt very deep, but very clean and had a life gaurd. The entertainment was brilliant of a day and night something for everyone, there was a snake show and parrott show one night really good, something on everynight, and activities to do in the day, there was also a mini golf course and play area for kids. The bar are was lovely and staff really friendly esp pedro the bar manager. we stayed all inclusive, the only downside to the free alcohol was that the free drinks stopped at half nine! The food on offer wasnt much to be honest and this really let the hotel down, there wasnt a alot to choose from very basic, however the hotel is situated about five mins from either playa americas and los christianos which had a wide choice of resturants to choose from. In a taxi it was 20 euros from the airport. and there was always taxis outside the hotel, overall really would recommend this hotel to any one couples or families, had a really good time.
El apartamento muy bonito, con una terraza enorme. Están nuevos. La piscina bien y la verdad q bastante tranquilos. El régimen es de Todo Incluido pero es muy pobre. Las bebidas son de 11 a 21:30(no te dan botellitas de agua, solo vasos), el snack por la mañana es de 11 a 12 y consta de jamón, queso, chope y pan, ah, y de mini palmeritas. De 17 a 18 merienda, jamón, queso, mortadela y pan. En el desayuno, almuerzo y cena, cuando se gasta una bandeja de comida tardan media hora en reponerla, encima solo son 7 mini bandejitas de comida. Hasta los ingredientes de las ensaladas súper pobre, y no hablemos de q ni queso blanco, algo típico en todos sitios, ni yogures, bueno te ponían una ondilla que ni se sabe de q sabor. Ni las comidas tenían un papelito para saber q eran. El desayuno: jamón, queso, mantequilla y mermelada. De dulcitos las mini palmeritas y lacitos. El pan crudo. Ah!! Y total ausencia de Plátanos, Dios, q estamos en Canarias... q sobrannn. Te tenías q poner la cerveza tu mismo así q o tienes arte o té pasas al refresco... Se gastó la mayonesa y tuve q pedir, pues terminé de cenar y la mayonesa sin llegar... El arroz amarrillo era gris, ¿sería integral?... Bueno y que decir q por una manzanilla q pedí después de las 21:30 me querían cobrar 1€ con 50 céntimos....joerrr. Y q decir del cocinero q en el desayuno sé qjó de lo rápido que se había gastado el queso y tenía q volver a poner, lo que hay q oír, como no se va a gastar si solo hay jamón y queso, ni unas miserables lonchas de chorizo o salchichón, q es barato...
The apartments are outstanding value for the money. I paid only £80 for four nights. My room was fantastic on the ground floor. So my balcony looked onto a garden of plants. The apartments were very clean, of a high standard and having the telly was useful. The pool area was very good, you could always get a sunbed and often the pool was empty for ages. The children's pools were popular and well supervised. The bar area had a good menu and well priced snacks. The whole complex is set out on a terrace theme up the side of a hill, so be warned, lots of steps. There are lifts and ramps however. The only downside of the complex is it's location. There is nothing close by. The details on this place said it was 1.5km to bars and beach (I think). This is more like 1/2 hour walk past the backs of other developments or waste land and up hill on the way back. Certainly not 1.5km. But there is a taxi ramp outside the hotel and a taxi would be there in seconds. Just add in approx 5 euros per trip to any sort of bar or to the beach. Getting a taxi back is no problem either as there are loads of them. Taxi cost from the airport to these apartments is about 25 Euros.
I have been to Tenerife a few times & this place was the best by far,the apartments are beautiful & very clean,the pool bar very reasonably priced,food good(full english brekkie 4 euros)& the staff friendly.
its a bit of a walk to the beach,30 mins or so & the clubbing area not far,6 euros in cab.
Pool area clean & plenty of sun beds & brollys,i would definatly stay here again!!
