... out beside our bed...I could actually see his individual eyeballs. It was gross. I thought about putting a glass over him and leaving him for the maid to deal with but decided to try and remedy the situation myself while Mike helpfully asked if I'd like him to help me from somewhere in the vicinity of the hallway. I declined and whacked Señor Cucamunga with a flip flop. In retrospect a boot would have been a better idea because I then had to step on the flip flop to finish ...
... 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 ...
... has picked up making it difficult for the stall holders. Maybe the weather is changing, time for us to go! Back to the airport to return the car 18.15 in plenty of time for the flight to Leeds-Bradford at 20.15. It's the last flight to leave tonight and actually slightly early. We land around 00.30 and are home by 01.00. Not tired so we put the first lot of washing on before bed at 02.15. What a great winter break, days ill be longer nod snowdrops out ...
... All the footpaths at the peak are closed but a it's a clear day you can still see Gran Canaria and La Gomera from the side we have access too. We take lots of pics before descending. We drive a little further south in the park to see the dramatic roque formations near the Parador before returning down the mountain to Puerta de la Cruz. We complete the town walk we started on Wednesday, surprisingly a very pretty plaza behind such a tourist ...
A relatively early start by 10.00 to arrive in La Laguna in time for the start of the local football match between. La Laguna and Lanzerote. It's in a much larger stadium than last week and the football is of a better standard, a league above, but it lacks the local atmosphere, the result 2-1 to the home side is a fair result. We wander back into town and explore the old capital. It has some fine 18th century buildings set in a perfect grid so flat and easy to follow! We stop ...

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..
