... city at 5:00 in the morning or a stroll along the sand on the beach, I always have the potential to make an impact on people and let them impact me. This island, my friends, the hospital and this culture have impacted me significantly more than I thought they would, and I can only hope that I could do the same for them. Now that I've had my five weeks, I'm ready to go home and get ready for the rest of my life--it's been a good one so far, but I can tell it's only going to get better!
... awake. It seemed that some of the other residents were having similar problems.
After the session was over, we ran down to the other hospital with three residents to see a very quick presentation all residents were required to attend. We only caught the last five or ten minutes of it, and again I was so tired that I didn't make much of an effort to understand anything. After our residents signed their attendance sheet, we ran back up to el ...
... speak the language enough to explain the complicated, technical medical issues patients may be experiencing. The only option they have is to use a translator over the phone--a service the hospital offers to doctors. I've spoken with my students and multiple other doctors about this translating company, and they don't like the idea of it. There is no guarantee that the translator on the other line understands the medical terminology and concepts necessary to explain the ...
... their time with drinks or food at the local cafe of their choice. the bus dropped us near a small harbour which although well constructed against the worst moods of the Atlantic ocean was clearly made for the local fishing fleet. Alas it now held a few boats and yachts for the richer incoming flood of tourists and escapees from more northern countries. The towns name is Playa San Juan and although I thoroughly enjoyed the harbour, the thing which really made ...
... As I said, the sun was out and the sky was super blue, so the water was this pleasant blue/turquoise color, and the waves were so big some of them went over my head. There were these giant rocks to walk and climb on off to the side of the beach, and we found all kinds of crabs and little sea animals hanging out on them in the sun. We also swam out to this huge rock structure about 100 meters away from the shore. It was cool to sit out in the sun on the rocks, and while ...

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.
