... get home! There are a lot of resorts and apartments here so I can imagine it's very popular later in the year. It was about 8.30 when we first went through the town and we learned there had been a big carnival here the night before, there were lots of people heading home in a bedraggled state still dressed up, the theme was cartoons so there were smurfs, snowwhite, Angelina ballerina, Mickey Mouse etc! Looked like they had fun! Otherwise the town is a sleepy quiet place on a ...
... back and forth to the bar from the pool. Aside from that though it was a gorgeous spot and had some great restaurants along the boardwalk and beaches to check out. After that we drove up the coast to Playa de San Juan and then Puerto Santiago for a great late lunch. On the way home we stopped at Los Cristianos for a look around but it seemed to just be the same as Playa de las Americas but circa 1976. On Monday we booked ourselves into the cheapest accommodation we could find ...
Our next shore stop was Santa Cruz, Tenerife, Canary Islands.
This is a major big city. While the island of Lanzarote is around 140,000, Santa Cruz on the island of Tenerife is over 200,000 people alone. Again, the modern city structures are unbelievable since all of the products to build had to be shipped in. This is a major port for these islands with many container ships sitting off shore waiting to be unloaded. We watched ...
... s south airport (about 40 minutes away). The snow capped peak of Mount Teidi was clearly visible on this bright sunny morning.We had already been given our boarding passes yesterday whilst on board, so all we needed to do was pass through security and as we zig zagged the snake queue it wasn't long before we were airside.A quick check on the departures board and saw that our ...
... the sun sinking on the horizon.It is Formal Night this evening - it's always nice to see everyone dressed up.David always likes to dress to impress and he didn't disappoint this evening, quite a few people commented on his shoes so I thought a photo was in order to complete the story. We skipped the show this evening, had a nightcap instead listening to the Irish singer before heading to our comfy cabin. Night folks will be back again tomorrow. Zzzzzzzz

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Riu Garoe Puerto de la Cruz
Un hotel y una comida de primera clase. Teníamos una habitación encima de la zona de entretenimientos con lo que podíamos oír todo hasta las 23-30 horas.
what a gem of a hotel - only 190 rooms so not too big. Hotel location in quiet area of upmarket La Paz district only about 500m from Botanical Gardens. You can walk to town centre and lido in Puerto but it's down 184 steps. Best to use hotel free bus which runs on a regular basis except Sunday.
first class hotel and food,we had room above entertainments,so till approx 23-30 hours we could hear everything.
Das Muss der Kanarischen Inseln
Meine Familie und ich haben eine Woche in diesem Hotel verbracht. Alles war wundervoll: Personal, Ausstattung, Zimmer, Essen. Obwohl ich zum ersten Mal auf Teneriffa war, wollte ich das Hotel überhaupt nicht mehr verlassen, um andere Dinge zu sehen. Das war gar nicht nötig! Man hatte alles, was man brauchte, im Hotel. Ich kann dieses Hotel sehr empfehlen. Es arbeiten sehr nette Leute dort, vor allem Sergio, der mit seinem Gesang und Klavierspiel für unvergessliche Abende verantwortlich war. Falls Sie mit ein paar Extra-Kilos nach Hause kommen wollen, dann ist dies der richtige Ort für Sie. Was für ein hochwertiges, gut präsentiertes Essen! Sprechen Sie nicht von Teneriffa, sprechen Sie vom vom Riu Garoe Hotel!
THE MUST OF CANARY ISLANDS
My family and I spent one week on this hotel. Everything was wonderful: staff, facilities, rooms, food. Althoug this was my first stay in Tenerife I did not wanted to leave the hotel to visit other things. This was not necessary! You had whatever you needed inside the hotel. I can strongly recomend this hotel. Very nice people working there, specially Sergio who was responsible of unforgeteable evenings, singing and playing piano.
If you want to come back to home with some more Kilograms, this is the right place to choose. What excellent quality and presentation food ! Don´t say Tenerife, say Riu Garoe Hotel !
A good experience.
Stayed for 7 days. No lager-lout Brits or a soccer shirt in sight. Hotel had a German bias which is a definate plus, as they do all the complianing and enforcement of standards (I assume) and we had to do nothing but enjoy the ambiance. That said, I'm not sure that any complaining was necessary as there is a high and visible hotel management presence on a daily basis.
Food was very good and cosmopolitan (if you are looking for fish, chips and peas then you will need to go elsewhere), and service was attentive, but then again, they assume you are German but will speak English to you when they realise who you are. Interestingly, you keep the same dining table each day as your own and the same waiter.
For a 7 day break we would certainly go back again.
After many visits to hotels and apartments in Puerto de la Cruz have just returned from a weeks holiday in the Hotel Garoe in the La Paz area.
On arrival it was a pleasure to find fresh fruit, wine, a cold plate of meat/cheese and freshly laundered bath robes in our room. The mini bar was a bonus in that its prices were one of the cheapest I have experienced.
My wife and I who are both in our 60s stayed at the Riu Garoe in June . From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for Sen. Figueroa, the Manager and his staff to make our stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible. Our suitcases were delivered to our room without us raising a finger. Our room was decorated to a high standard and kept immaculately clean by our maid Carmen.
