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).

... all the organs. Then cut the esophagus so the organs can be totally removed from the fish. We then had to separate the liver only, which was used for a histology exam. Then cut off a whole gill for further analysis, and then a piece of skin. Then we had to weigh the fish witout guts with the gill, then just the gill, then just the liver. Liver, gill and skin were placed in a small container for formaldahyde and send to a histolgy lab.
Usual day at work, I was able to get out early so I can go to the Extranjeria department and try and get my permit of citizenship for cheaper travel. Once I got there they did not let me in because they had a technical difficulty and it was packed with people. I then went to a camping store to fix my backpack that broke. Had to buy weist traps with buckles and go to a leather store where they could ahve fixed it. Also had to have fixed 2 zippers that had broken in the past.
I came into work and was told that hundreds of my fish have died. The pump that brings salt water from the ocean into the tanks stopped working. So no fresh salt-water was coming in. I have to admit, it was sad feeding a tank that once had hundreds of starving fish in the morning, to a tank with 12 fish. I obviously had to tell nearly everyone at work what happened to my forehead and cheek, but thats the price you pay for having fresh scars on your face.
... of helped. So I had a jellyfish sting with a bruised forehead and cheek while under the blistering hot sun. I then exited the water, headed to the shade of the tarp, rinsed the wounds with fresh water and applied an anti-bacterial cream.
I also "developed" a cooler for our water that was getting hot even under the shade. Dig a hole in ...
We rented a car and headed to Galdar and Puerto de Las Nieves. In Galdar we went to see the natural pools, which were pools that had been naturally eroded and filled with salt water. With every wave more water came in. The place was obviously filled with screaming kids, who would eat ice-cream and them jump into the pool to wash off. We then headed south until we got to Guayedra beach, parked and walked for about 20 minutes until we reached the beach. Took some nice photos of the sun ...
