Po niecałej godzinie dojechaliśmy do naszego hotelu Barcelo Varadero położonego w małej, malowniczej miejscowości Playa de la Arena w půłnocno-wschodniej części wyspy.
Z uwagi na "porażającą" prędkość obsługi recepcji trochę …
... El Ray as we drove up to the volcanic summit of the island called El Teide. It was a pretty fun road full of switchbacks that took us through every conceivable landscape from rainforest to snow to pine trees to mists so thick you couldn't see ten feet down the road. Wednesday found us going for a pirate ship ride from Las Americas to Los Gigantes, the huge cliffs on the western side of the island that rise straight up 600 meters from the sea. It was a fun ride and Mike even went ...
... 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. ...
... has picked up making it difficult for the stall holders. Maybe the weather is changing, time for us to go! Back to the airport to return the car 18.15 in plenty of time for the flight to Leeds-Bradford at 20.15. It's the last flight to leave tonight and actually slightly early. We land around 00.30 and are home by 01.00. Not tired so we put the first lot of washing on before bed at 02.15. What a great winter break, days ill be longer nod snowdrops out ...
... All the footpaths at the peak are closed but a it's a clear day you can still see Gran Canaria and La Gomera from the side we have access too. We take lots of pics before descending. We drive a little further south in the park to see the dramatic roque formations near the Parador before returning down the mountain to Puerta de la Cruz. We complete the town walk we started on Wednesday, surprisingly a very pretty plaza behind such a tourist ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Varadero Guia de Isora
In the second half of february 2006 my wife and I stayed for a week at the Barcelo Varadero Hotel, Playa Las Arena.
Very nice hotel
We stayed in Barcelo Varadero for one week, at block A, second floor. We had a nice view to the sea and the main road.
There is three swimmingpools: the topmost pool was full of children (because the water was warmer, I believe). Middlemost pool was beside the bar and entertainment and the lowest was quite peaceful. The water was cool, but swimmable. Really refreshing, but only for one minute swims...
The food at the snackbar was ok (and also quite cheap). Pizza was terrible, but the hamburger and salad tasted good.
My wife and I have just returned from a package holiday (arranged by First Choice), staying at the Barceló Varadero.
I stayed with my parents and teenage son during Christmas.
We all had an really good holiday - the food was fine and very good value we felt, and the atmosphere was very relaxed and not too English. We even joined in with some of the organised activities - the entertainments guys were so encouraging and friendly
We are 2 adults and two children. We were in Varadero for two weeks in october and the experience was great.
It's not a luxury aparthotel but the facilities as well as the food & service are excellent.
First of all, we waited 2 hours for our room to be ready - just had to sit round reception, despite having a check in time of 2pm - it was not ready. Our apt was at the furthest point from reception, and there was no one to help me and my 50 something mother with our luggage, so we had to cart it ourselves through the rows of sunbeds.
We stayed at Barcelo Varadero from the 5th of April 2004 up till the 12th of April 2004. We will never go again to this hotel because of the loud entertainment. From 10 till 22:30 there is entertainment for children and adults. No problem so far, but this entertainment needs loud music. We where moved to a more quiet room, but still there was music. The beds where teribble. The promissed Dutch tv channel by the travel agency wasn't there. The room was dirty and we even had a visit of a cockroch.
February 13th to February 20th 2004. We got moved to Barcelo Varadera after Tamaimo Tropical at Los Gigantes had managed to give our apartment to someone else! Barcelo Varadera is very nice indeed with very well appointed apartments, three swimming pools, evening entertainment (which seemed to be good but which we didn't see), and a very good mini-market. The hotel just feels 'posh' with a marble foyer and very pleasant front desk staff. We were in Block C - C must stand for Cockerel (a local bird which woke us all up at 5 o'clock every morning!). As far as eating out, go to Ristorante Varadero 100 yards down the hill. Harry from Vienna and his lovely Columbian wife run this super restaurant with great friendliness. If you like fish, the huge mixture for two people at around 20 Euro is stunning. 400 yards away from the apartments is a black sand beach with great waves for jumping around in. All in all a very nice place to stay.
I had a realy nice time
I had a great time in barcelo Varadero, nice staff, good entertainment and a lot of nice pools. Everyday they had a show for children and they loved it after that a show for adults. It's a realy nice place to stay for families. Playa de Arena itself is very small and not much to see, we had a good entertainment at night so I didn't care at all.
