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).

They now tower over the high fields and were a pleasant reminder of home for me. Swollen oranges hung from their trees’ sinking branches, the brilliant vermillion leaping forward from deep bottle green leaves.

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, CANARY ISLANDS
Our third stop in the Canaries ... Las Palmas .... the 5th largest city in all of Spain ... and a beachside resort alongside a bustling city.
In fact the beach is right ...
... We found a sheltered spot at a jetty and watched high tide waves and enjoyed a snack. The hotel provides a beach bag with towels and waters for your enjoyment. The group met at 5:45 to trek out to the amazing sand dunes. Jakub and Eva setup a blanket with candles, appetizers and wine. There was a guitarist from the islands and we enjoyed hearing about the islands and ...
Our day begins early as we trek our luggage down to Hotel Reina Isabelle to meet our guides. It is easy to spot our group wearing lots of biking gear. We have 21 bikers mostly from the east coast. This includes three families, two single women and four couples. We have a 50 minute bus trip to the south of the island to begin our ride. We arrive in Tejada for a lunch at a quant pub. This is our first meal featuring platters of salad, olives, cheese, ...
