... lime green Opel Corsa that we christened "El Ray". This turned out to be a great decision because we not only had a blast cruising all over the island but it was also SO nice not to have to rely on buses and taxis and have everything scheduled just so to be able to get around. Plus we just looked cool :). The day after we arrived we went for a drive down to tourist central: Playa de las Americas. THIS is the place to be as an overweight drunken tourist who just spends their ...
... again they took you through the city and out in the country, but locked you in the bus for 5-6 hours or more.
Just off the pier we found another city tour like we had taken in Barcelona, The City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off bus tour. With the double decker buses and audio through complimentary headphones, we got a first class tour at less than half the price of an excursion.
This is a truly amazing city. With ...
... t cost us anything. In any case, as I told them, it was worth it for the comedy value. :-) Talk about organised chaos. We’ll be laughing for a long time about this, ha ha. Whenever I hear Price Tag I will remember the Coral Club and Dong the entertainments guy. :-)
We stayed for the disco and I did a bit of dancing, but as it was nearly 00:40am by then we had to go back to our cabin, as we are due to drop anchor in Porto Novo, Cape Verde tomorrow ...
... 30pm we went into the Neptune Lounge to listen to a presentation about the bombing raid during the Battle of Britain which was very interesting.
Trevor stayed for the next lecture by a retired Scotland Yard policeman, but I went back to the cabin to get showered and start getting ready for the Captain’s Cocktail party. As we are on first sitting at 6.00pm, the cocktail party was at the ridiculously early time of 5.15pm, so it meant putting ...
Last day but no rush as evening flight. We pack and tidy, make salad rolls for the journey out of left overs! We leave to complete the round trip of the island by heading south to Lis Gigantes. These dramatic cliffs don't disappoint. They are high, black with a sheer drop to the blue ocean. The weather is much warmer in the south, wish I'd put more sunscreen on. Driving along the coast to Puerto de Santiago then a stop for afternoon coffee at Playa de San ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Los Gigantes Acantilado de los Gigantes
Read all the reviews before I went to the Los Gigantes Resort and agree with most of them. It is a very hilly location, so not for the less mobile. It was extremely hot when we were there, 29-32 degrees c., which for me was a little overpowering. So conscequentley when the Hotel Controls the Air Conditioning as they see fit it did nothing for my ability to relax or sleep. It seemed as if it came on at about 14.00hrs until around 02.00hrs., but as it was so Hot so early in the day the room was not pleasant for me until after 14.00hrs. & I would wake up roasting in the middle of the night. Not what I would expect for a Thomson Gold Hotel (4*). Also the Entertainment was pretty repetitive (Black Jack) & Thomson Reps. I askedfor a high floor & a Quiet room, I got 5th. Floor of 8, but was extremely noisey until Midnight. Foregoing these two problems the Food was first Class as were the Staff. The Hotel is fairly old but is in good condition, although we found the Saltwater Pool extremely salty.
Our first visit to the hotel but we shall return. A superb hotel, great staff, lovely food great value.
Get los(t) gigantes, never return
los gigantes eh? one way in and one way out,yes
a 1 in 6 incline up and down. about 7 bars, most run by rip off english folk.a small beach,(black)
if you go out of this hole you'll have to get a taxi or a bus.you either struggle up the hill or slide down there is NO FLAT WALKING AREAS its true.
any one who's been back to this dump has not been anywhere else, it takes you about 1.5 hours
to realize what a cock up you've made, you will know every inch of it and get the next plane home.
sorry but you have been warned. my promise, offer me £2000-00 and i will give it to children in need to go to BLACKPOOL.
Good but avoid fiesta time
Excellent Hotel. Good staff. Good food. BUT avoid this hotel fiesta time. Feb/Mar. We had a good holiday ruined by excessive noise until 5am. This happens every year, the hotel keeps a stock of ear plugs. Some guests took blankets into the lounge at the back of the hotel to get some sleep. The noise was horrendous.
We have just returned from the Los Gigantes Hotel and found it to be a friendly, clean and tidy hotel. All credit to Senor Dela Rosa the Manager and his staff.
Towels on Sunbeds!
I have visited Hotel Los Gigantes many times and have always enjoyed my holidays there. I had never previously stayed in February until last year and was horrified to see that people (mostly quite elderly) were actually queuing at the doors very early in the mornings to put their towels on their sunbeds - and these were Brits!! There are plenty of sunbeds so there is no need but the most annoying part of this practice is that people who bag beds in the morning don't bother taking occupancy until later on in the day. This is clearly unacceptable and the management needs to put a stop to it.
Otherwise the hotel is faultless - staff, food, entertainment etc.
Lovely hotel and pool areas but extremely disappointed in restaurant.
Dinner menus were very repetitive. Very "cliquey" as obviously some people returned year after year - can't understand why! Definitely not a good value for money holiday as it was by no means cheap. Would say an "older person's" hotel. Entertainment pretty average but more for older people. Better entertainment in bars around the hotel. Food good at marina restaurants nearby.
Great Los Gigantes
Los Gigantes Hotel was excellent. A touch of class. Fantastic views.
Friendly staff. Good variety of food (although buffet is a bit of a free for all until you get used to the system, after which no problem).
Great position in resort (which is very hilly) - not far from the harbour. Relaxing. Entertainment daily but not "in your face" - very discreet. Quiet lounge. A bit of character even though it is a tower block. Got a late booking with Portland Direct (part of Thomsons) for this Thomson Gold hotel aimed mainly at couples/adults only. Couldn't have been much luckier.
Los Gigantes, El Sombrero Apartments
I visited Tenerife in 2002 and stayed with a friend.Returning in July 2003 with my boyfriend we booked a last minute deal and my friend said these apartments were nice.He was right - so much so that we've just booked to go back in October 2003 taking our eldest daughter.Beautifully clean and with good facilities these apartments are ideally situated for all the local amenities.Book yourself in!
A great place to stay, The Hotel Los Gigantes was beautiful, great staff, and food.The rooms have pleanty of room and were very comfortable. It was nice not having anyone under 16 allowed in the hotel, it made for a very restful week. The views were unbelievable. I recommend taking the tour of La Gomera Island.On the way there, by ferry, we saw some wales and dolphins. Outstanding views, and the view of Mt Teidi from there is breathtaking. I also recommend the travel by 4x4 instead of by coach. You'll see more. Take time to go to Los Americas and Adeje. The area of Los Gigantes is very clean and tidy. If you are taking a honeymoon or just some relaxing time off, this is the place..
