... 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 ...
... creatures and seeing them in the wild is a completely different experience from seeing them at Sea World. Not that I'm knocking Sea World, I am just saying. So I have tons of video that I am going to put up here and you can see the whales and dolphins too. I will warn you that you have to wade through a bit of nothing at the beginning to find it. Just fast forward a bit and you will find them. I got so really good shots of the mother and baby ...

Spent the rest of the day eating lunch, playing Fluxx, having a snooze, taking over the world in Risk and just relaxing. Went out for food where I had a hamburger and Anthony had a Mexican skewer. Then San Fran malfunctioned and ...

Tearing Anthony away from the Penguins we headed over to the Orca show. Now I'm not a fan of killer whales at all - I find them quite scary so I wasn't looking forward to this but at the same time I was looking forward to seeing the show, not having seen one since going to Florida as a child. We found out that the Orcas ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Granada Park Apartments Los Cristianos
Good value, attractive, unpretentious.
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.
The first apartment we were offered (Block 7 S038) had large plants immediately in front of the balcony so no view, no sun and a very gloomy interior. On request we moved to apartment 224 in Block 5 - a second floor (top) apartment with a south facing balcony looking over waste ground to Los Cristianos - much better. It also had a spiral staircase from the balcony to a private roof terrace - as all the top floor apartments seem to have. The apartments are spacious and adequately furnished but have minimal crockery and utensils although a kettle was provided on request. There was nothing in the way of toiletries, washing-up liquid, dishcloths etc. so again take your own. The maid service was excellent but the towels were rather thin and well-worn.
It's 8mins walking downhill to the nearest supermarket, 2 more minutes into Los Cristianos town and a couple of minutes further to the best beach - Playa de las Vistas - and a 5/6euro taxi ride back unless you want to trudge up the hill. It's a long way from Playa de las Americas despite the address. The reception staff were always very helpful and sorted out car hire at a good price with no fuss. A relaxing place for some winter sunshine.
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.
Comfortable, clean and quiet
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).
The hotel is a good walk away from the center. Luckily there is a free hotel minibuss (at least it was free for us= Finnmatkat travel agent/Thompson). It goes twice in the mornings to the beach (Mare Nostrum near Playa de las Vistas) and comes back at 5pm. The downside is that in the bus there is room only for 15-16 people. We used it a lot and sometimes we were the only passangers and once there wasn't room for us (we were there for two weeks).
I could have walked back and fort from Las Americas but my 60-year-old mother and father aren't in that good shape for the trip. My father loved the terrace (solved many crossword puzzles there) and the pool bar (staff was English and served good english breakfast).
The pool area is big and there is lots of sun chairs (with mattresses). The biggest pool is cold (felt colder than the sea but after taking sun for few hours it was wonderful to go), the medium sized is warmed (which was the most popular).
Hotels supermarket is small (althought there were lot smaller in the near area) but there were the essentials what you needed. The closest "real" supermarket (Hiper typhool) was under the hill in the Los Cristianos side. The hotel internet was expensive (6e/hour). There were a lot cheeper internet cafes in Las Americas (shopping center across hotel Palmeras) and Christianos (near the public library) (about 1e/hour).
We didn't realise until th third day that you can get out of the hotel area from the side gates by using the electricity card (it was a bit difficult, you had to hold it in the machine for a 5sec atleast for it to work). That shortened the walk to the big supermarket and Christianos busstation.
I highly recommend this hotel to people that aren't party animals (there weren't discos in the near area). There were lot of parking places near the hotel (not official) and many rented a car. There is a big road near the hotel but the trafic noises didn't bother us. There is lot of empty (un-built) areas near the hotel but also lots of 4-5 star golf hotels.
Overall we liked the hotel and enjoyed our stay.
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
Too far from anywhere
My husband and I stayed threre for xmas and new year.
Our apartment was very nice spacious and clean.
The pool erea and supermarket ok also.
But the bar was terrible , it is by the pool, no entertaiinment at night and only snacks when we went in after 9. pm.
One evening it rained so much that we could"nt walk down to Playa Americas and no taxis for love nor money. We braved the rain to get to bar there were 4 people in there , we were bored to tears,
At the time the main road was"nt finished so it may be better now, but it is too far out of the main resorts.
No taxi late New Years eve had to walk back took about 2 hours.
Uphill nearly all the way.
Would not reccomend for imfirm or elderly unless you have a car.
This complex is great if you play golf.
No problem with noise at night.
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.
p.s a great trip out was the aqua park, 23 euros something for everyone, and free dolphin show, and for 50 euros about £35 you can spend an hour with the dolphins and got 3 free pictures aswell, brilliant!!!
Apartamentos bien pero comida mal...
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!!
