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).

Walked back into ...
We decided that we needed a day to relax so chose to go to the famous beach on this island. It took us about a 45 minute drive to go to the south end of the island. This island is definitely the most "touristy" of all the islands. They attract millions of tourists per year because it is a short flight from northern Europe, is on the Euro as belongs to Spain, has great warm weather and minimal rainfall and has a high standard of living and ...
The weather outside is frightful, but Gran Canaria is so delightful this time of year. If you're heading there over the next few months, here's a handy to-do list that strikes the perfect balance between relaxation and adventure…
Gran Canaria's default setting is warm, thanks to it being within striking distance of Africa. And we're not just talking summer months - the third biggest Canary island stays toasty during winter, too, so it's always a safe ...
... 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 ...
... to the Madeira blog *yay* In the afternoon, we headed to the beach and had some lunch in one of the beachside restaurants. It was very warm but very windy so it didn't feel too hot. Unfortunately we both burnt. We re-embarked ahead of the sailing time and I headed to deck 18 to join my friends. The boys kicked a football overboard, so before sailing, the Environmental Officer had to ...
