TravelPod Member ReviewsSanta Catalina Hotel Las Palmas
We arrived to Hotel Santa Catalina, which is located centrally in Las Palmas, some time around 22:00 pm, local time.
The hotel was beautifully decorated with lights all over the place. Additionally, there were three sets of Christmas trees along the hallway covered with lights, which made the atmosphere fabulous.
We were given a room looking towards the back side of the garden. It was really a nice and quiet room, so some nights, thanks to the beautiful weather(20C), we could sleep with open windows.
Positive remarks: the whole hotel was really clean and tidy. The bed sheets/towels were changed every day.
The breakfast was nice, although bad quality coffee, as the coffee is maintained as a self-service from a coffee machine.
The location of the hotel is very central. But if you want to go to either (Triana/Mesa y Lopez) shopping street, taxi is needed.
The taxi fare is 1,70 eur daily tariff, 2,40 eur night tariff. Normally, the taxi ride ranges between 3-5 euros anywhere in the city.
Nice and cheap prices for the food/drinks in the bar of the hotel.
Michelin star restaurant for nice prices.
Negative remarks: few of the staff at the reception/waiters were rude and uninterested in the customers.
The rooms had only one key, and there was always a queue to leave or pick up your room key!
The toilet was too small and no ventilation whatsoever in the bathroom. (The room was ok though).

9. Take a hike at Pico de las Nieves
If it's a hiking challenge you're after, hit the trails of Pico de las Nieves. It's the island's highest mountain, grazing clouds to reach 1,949 metres into the sky. Or, if you'd prefer a slightly less strenuous trek, you can stroll around the pine forest at Tamadaba National ...
... a papoose. The dwellings clung like a barnacle. Granite boulders stood like strong, silent sentinels.
Innumerable hairpin bends on 15 degree slopes sliced and cut from the stone led us to our repast. A wonderful lunch venue at the summit brought us an easy and all-to-accessible red vin de table and peasant vegetable soup, with goats cheese and fresh tomato on the side. The ceiling was glass and the mood was uncomplicated.
The slow growing laurel ...
We docked at Gran Canaria at around 07:00 local time. Clearance was granted at around 08:00, so passengers and crew were able to go ashore shortly afterwards. We were advised that the back on board time was 17:30 local. We disembarked at around 12:45 and walked around the quayside to see for the first time, Britannia's Union Flag bow. The water was very blue and the port had a ...

LAS PALMAS, GRAN CANARIA
Our third stop in the Canaries ... Las Palmas .... the 5th largest city in all of Spain ... and a beachside resort alongside a bustling city.

... rock formations are very breath taking. We also discovered that these islands are the training rides for many of the professional cyclists. We saw several sets of pro cyclists headed up and down the big climbs. Martin looked and saw team sky, Tinkof Saxo, Movistar and Garmin Sharp were several of the riders we passed. Martin really enjoys the down hills so staying together was a bit difficult. Backroads provides turn by turn sheets but I did not ...
