... with my friends on the beach for the last time, have a few well deserved drinks, talk with Avi (from UIowa) about MCAT and premed course work, walk on the most jagged rocks I think I've ever been on, get sunburned on my legs (AGAIN), take some embarrassingly ridiculous selfies, interrupt a game of rugby between Spaniards, and get lost in the beauty of my favorite place in the north of Tenerife. I didn't want to leave the beach, but I really needed to get back home to put on ...
... networks in all areas of the world. I really hear his message; after spending time in Internal Medicine and visiting the Taco Healthcare Center, I've realized that primary care is the first avenue to turn to in improving the health of our communities, and though I'm still interested in psychiatry, I also hope to include primary care in my career. I've discovered a new residency called the Triple Board, where you essentially spend five years training in ...
... on Friday, my friends and I decided to go to the beach. We've had such a long week, and since this is our last weekend together, we wanted to spend as much time with each other as possible. Las Terecitas has never been more beautiful than it was that day, though the wind blew the sand all over the place and pelted the **** out of us! The sun was out and shining, and the sky has only been as blue as it's ever been here in Tenerife. I got to lay out on the sand and dip my feet ...
... customs, into a taxi to arrive at Tony's apartment on Palm Beach. I had achieved the journey out and felt good. My gratitude to everyone who helped is beyond words and with a special 'thank you' to the wheelchair angel at Tenerife South airport who managed to clear a speedy flight path through crowds of passengers with her verbal beep beeping and deliver me from aircraft to taxi in record time.
Our first day on the island was spent exploring ...
... trip, and since it's been awhile since any of us have had semi-American food, we all dug in.
The next morning, we went on a hike in a northern part of the island called Teno--a mountainous region. Since we were at such a high elevation, the vegetation was very similar to that of deserts--all kinds of cactus and weird flowers/shrubs that only grow in places where water is in short supply. The views from the trail were totally amazing; we were right on the edge of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Parque San Antonio Puerto de la Cruz
we love this hotel fantastic and friendly to all
This is a friendly hotel in a nice setting well above the resort. This means that you have a taxi ride to get back (about £5) each time you go back to the hotel. Unless you want a steep walk. There is a free hotel bus, but times do not always suit. as some other reviewers state, it is favoured by Germans, but as Germans are usually more discriminating than the British, that should not surprise anyone. What is odd is that the different nationalities should band themselves as regards evening meal times. The excellent food is available from 6 - 10pm. Germans go in at 6, British at about 7, French and Spanish much later. There is no compulsion to do this, but people do it anyway. Fascinating.
Myself and my 2 young children have just returned from a week at this hotel (8th July '05).
Having read some of the reviews on this Hotel we wondered what we were going to. You must all be the biggest moaning minnies in the world!!! The Hotel is wonderful. Well kept in beautiful gardens, first class food, friendly and helpful staff, what more could you ask for? We will definalty use it again!!
An absolutely fantastic hotel. Set in peaceful, well tended, quiet tropical gardens you will think that you are staying in paradise!
This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel and the best thing about it is that it doesn't change - it doesn't need to. The staff are friendly and polite (in fact some of them even remembered me from my previous stays in the hotel).
The food is outstanding - even the most fussy eater will surely be able to find something to their taste in the wide variety of food available.
Well worth a visit - I'll definately be going back.
Just returned from Sol Parque San Antonio in Puerto de la Cruz , a hotel not to be recommended if you cannot manage steps, 22 steps to the reception from the road and no ramp for your cases . 27 steps to the restaurant and you have to go outside to get there in the rain,yes it rains in Tenerife .We went with Thos.Cook they seem to put their customers in inferior rooms, we changed 3 times to get a suitable room, we were not alone as 16 other guests with Thos. Cook also demanded a room change at the reps. meeting on Sat. 19th Feb. We didn't manage to change to a decent room until Tues. after 4 days waiting.Our 2nd room was below ground level by the road you needed the lights on during the day, not a place where you want to spend 2 weeks of your holiday, but it was a much bigger room than the first. The reception staff were brusque and offhand , also rooms not cleaned very well, fluff still under the bed after 10 days. Good points-- beautiful grounds, good pool,good choice of food.Oh yes, you have to wait at the restaurant door in the cold and draught to be shown to a table when available.. HAPPY HOLIDAY. B.SOLLOWAY. England.
I spent 3 weeks in the Sol Parque Hotel in October 2004 and was very disappointed indeed. This hotel should not be categorised as a four star property. It is pushing it to even qualify it as a 3*. It operates to a reasonable 2* standard.
We arrived at 9.30 pm at the hotel to be sent to the first room, when we arrived there the beds were unmade so back we went to reception, with suitcases, to be given the key to another room, on the main road, although not that busy during the day had its busy time in the morning.
Dont forget your german phrasebook
we have recently returned from a weeks relaxing break at the sol parque san antonio. How relaxed? well not speaking german, meant we could only converse with ourselves, not being a fan of central european lift musak, meant the hotel offered nothing else by way of entertainment apart from multi-linguistic bingo and a magician stuck in a timewarp, then i guess you could say relaxing would be the optimum word.
If middle aged european arrogance, and sprouts for breakfast are for you then look no further. However, if you require any sort of stimulation on your holiday then look elsewhere.
On the upside good location, big clean rooms, and great coffee.

Quiet, warm, paradise
Parque san antonio is the place to go. if your looking for a quiet holiday, with fun activities during the day, friendly staff and perfect placing in puerto de la cruz, the main town is only 2km away. During the day guests can join in play, doing darts, table tennis, rifle shooting,(ball bearing) bb gun shooting and archery. a club for the kids with the right people for the job, kids can paint, drawer, make pottery, make many fun things. i have been the this paticular hotel 10 times in my life. Im 17 i even took my first steps there. Take my word for it. if you want to go to tenrife, got to this hotel.
