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).

Everyone began to get to know each other as we enjoyed coffee and teas to finish our meal. Our bikes are outfitted with our pedals and fit adjustments are made to ensure a comfortable ride. Leaving lunch on bikes we began to experience the many climbs of this trip. The weather was hazy but the views are still amazing. ...
We slept in and ate breakfast buffet on the 23rd floor restaurant. We headed down to the beach to check on where we have to meet the group tomorrow. The beach is full of vacationing families and many people taking surfing lessons. We walked up and down enjoying an outdoor lunch ...
... lovely to look at as we walked back to the minibus. This was our final place to visit so we said goodbye to Alan and the other minibuses and joined the motorway just outside Las Palmas for our journey back to Maspalomas. What a fantastic day we had so many lovely memories, views and the company on the bus was great fun as well. After a long day out we decided to go it to eat in the evening so we could relax and talk about the wonderful day we had been part ...
