Travel Blogs from Puerto de la Cruz
S3bastian stayed here on Oct 6, 2012 during their trip titled: Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.
This is it. I'm sitting in my residencia now on the final night of my time here in Tenerife. I cannot believe I've been here for five weeks and that I won't be going to the hospital on Monday...it feels like I've started a new life here and now I'm throwing away something I got so used to! Either way, I'm excited for what the rest of my summer, year and life hold, so though I'm sad to leave, I'm also happy to go.
These last two days have been absolutely amazing! It was ...
... pain. Laura was the resident we followed today, and she was very nice. She was super eager to practice her English with us, and since Mary Hunter doesn't speak much Spanish, I conceded to speaking mostly English in today's shadowing experience. The first patient we saw was a woman from Holland who was on vacation in Tenerife with her husband. She was obese, and experienced premature contractions. Since she was only at 24 months when she arrived at the hospital ...
... critical and needed treatment, so she would either need to inject insulin regularly or have an insulin pump be put in. All she could do was shake her head and show complete disapproval of their advice. Since working with Paco, we've talked about what the Spanish call "interconsulta," or joint consult, where more than one specialist is involved in the patient's treatment. I guess I knew about this in the US, but I never realized how interesting and cool it actually is when ...

Such is the story of an economy reliant on tourism.

Historical Traveler Reviews Apartments Casablanca Puerto de la Cruz
My wife and I returned yesterday after a Christmas week at Club Casablanca. I can only say...fabulous!!
These self catering apartments contain all that you would need for a holiday. The kitchen comes with a microwave, full oven, plates, cutlery (inc bottle opener), glasses, knives and even washing up liquid with a tea towel and scourer provided.
Large apartments at La Paz!
Club Casablanca is large aparthotel situated on a high hill, and there is many many steps to the centre;) The swimming pool is too small for almost 300 apartments...
I stayed at Casablanca with my grandparents and we had a two-room apartment with little kitchenette. It was spacious and nice, and had good storage and good balcony. The sofa bed was comfortable also for two persons.
I highly recommend specially for families!
Large 3-room apartments
We are a family of 4 who recently have stayed at this apartment hotel for 2 weeks. We have stayed at this hotel several times. The reason for choosing this place is mainly the large apartments available. Also very good job done by the cleaning personel, and the bedsheets being changed frequently.
One bad thing is the small swimming-pool, which is not dimensioned for a swim, and the water temperature that is too warm to call it a refreshing "swim".
We have just arrived back from the Casablanca Apts and had a great family holiday. The 1 bed apartments were exceptionally clean and the maids did a great job, there is a hill to climb to get to the apts which we found easier than the steps, you would definately struggle if you had difficulty with walking. The food at the bar was a bit disappointing but the entertainment was certainly entertaining! The old part of Peurto de la Cruz was good for people watching in the evening and we found a great restaurant called La Boheme just off the square, the food was beautiful and the service excellent. Walking along the lido in the evening and along the front watching the waves lashing against the rocks was very dramatic. A good holiday and I would recommend it to anyone with or without children, we have a teenager and she enjoyed the zoo, Mt Teide and the whale watching trip as well as the botanical gardens. Very relaxing and lovely weather, take a cardi for the evenings though, it can get a bit chilly!
It feels just like coming home
My wife and I have stayed at the Apts Casablancas for many years, usuall during May or June and once in January.
We have always been made to feel most welcome and the apartments are in our opinion excellent.
The staff have always been extremely helpful and on the few occasions when we have had a problem, kettles not working and things like that, it has been put right as quickly as anyone could hope for.
We really feel comfortable and 'at home' there.
Yes we have just booked again for two weeks in May 2005.

My partner and I stayed here in August. The apartments themselves are very spacious and spotlessly clean. The only thing that I would add is that compared to some other places we have stayed in they are a little dated- white fitments etc. The kitchen has everything that you could need, down to egg cups and fruit bowl!! The apartments are build round a central area with a swimming pool and bar area in the middle. We feel that the swimming pool is rather small for the size of the complex.
Remember Club Casablanca
I visited Club Casablanca from Feb 28 to March 24 of 2004. I spent the most delighted vacations ever in my life at this resort. All the staff should be commended for their polite, courteous and professional behavior. They were utmost cooperative at all times and very pleasant.
The room was always spic and span neatly clean. The service was excellent. The had good live entertainment, but missed to play some Salsa for the hispanics guests. Overall appreciation would be that i'm planning to return shortly and that i would highly recommend this place to everyone in the world. NOW! the restaurant "menu" needs to be amended and please add the description of your dishes offered in a printed manner, not only with deliciously phorographed meals. Soryy for been so honest.
Hi! i was in hotel CASABLANCA (10-17.3.2004) one week. it`s very nice place. The service was good. Thank`s wor them. love by: Finnish girl
We stayed in the Casablanca self-catering apartments, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife in early January 2004.The 2-bed apartment we had was clean and plenty spacious enough. It has a small balcony which had nice views onto palm trees and a side view of the sea. You could even see Mount Teide on clear days.There was a small kitchenette with fridge and cooker but no microwave. Plenty of cups, plates and the like. Bring (or buy) your own washing up liquid though.The maid came in more or less every day (the 6th Jan was a "fiesta" so I think that was skipped) and gave us towels and made the beds, God bless her.The reception staff all spoke far better English than I did Spanish and were polite and helpful.The resident "bar" served breakfast and snacks from 9am until closing. There was some musical entertainment some nights, but it was aimed at the Club 80-130 resident long-stay pensioners really.They offered underground parking for my hire car at 3 a day which was better than leaving it on the street.You could easily walk to the centre of Puerto from the hotel down 121 broad, wide steps, but for the less able-bodied this might be a problem. However, a taxi ride is pretty cheap.I've documented my full week there at the following web site: http://www.webcrazy.co.uk just click on the "Tenerife 2004" picture.Best Regards Ralph Bacon UK
