... for the return bus, so find a spot in the sun and a necessary chocolate brownie/birthday cake. The bus driver tells us how the law states that no high-rise buildings can be built in Lanzarote, except for one, a 17-story 5 star hotel on the beach front (built when the mayor was out of town).
This afternoon we made our own sangria concoction, composed of a cheap bottle of rioja, cask of pre-mixed sangria ...
Friday 6th June
Today we are jetting off into the sun, for a long weekend getaway for my birthday. We're leaving a surprisingly warm Edinburgh, which is fortunate because the walk to the tram is in t-shirts and jandals - yes, we are flying Ryan Air for the first time, and hand luggage is sparse. It was a slow start to the morning after a night out with the Edinburgh crew lastnight. To get into the Spanish theme, cousin Cheryl dared Kev to drink a jalapeno cocktail - ...
... started running to the beach. There was still 15 minutes till start and Em was carrying an incredibly heavy backpack so we just walked. The beach was already filling up fast when we got there and people were coming from all directions it seemed like. We found a good spot right by the water about 60 yards from where all the swimmers were going to go in. The sun was just starting to come up over the town horizon to the left and to the right was ...
... Spanish but of course failed miserably, even though the words were right in front of my I still said them totally wrong. But still solid effort for trying I guess. After we got back to the hotel the sun was kind of out and there was only like 70% cloud coverage, so we jumped on the opportunity and Em and I changed into our suits while the boys went to get dinner. As soon, and that's not an exaggeration, as soon as we got down to the pool and laid ...
... the two of us so we took turns taking naps. Had the worst ear pain as we began our decent which was unpleasant to say the least. But finally the island was in sight! It was such a beautiful view from the plane and we were so excited for the warm weather, so it was quite disappointing to find it was actually a bit chilly once we got off the plane. Going through customs was the easiest experience ever and the customs guy was the happiest man ever. All he did ...

Historical Traveler Reviews VIK Hotel San Antonio Puerto Del Carmen
we stayed in hotel for one week and all that was wrong was one week was not long enough,rooms very clean,pool lovely very pleased
Nos alojamos en el hotel una semana y lo único malo fue que una semana no fue suficiente, las habitaciones estaban muy limpias y la piscina era preciosa, estuvimos encantados.
Had a fantastic time in the San Antonio Hotel. Was there for a week & it was not long enough. The hotel was spotless, room cleaned every day & maids were very friendly. Bar staff very helpfull & friendly. Entertainment was average, mostly aimed at the older generation. There was a mini club for kids but unfortunately it was not open. Had a 2 yr old boy to keep entertained. The kiddies pool was salt water so not very practical but my son loved the adventure playground. Pool area spotless & pools cleaned every night. Food in Restaurant was very varied & a lot to choose from. Hotel Reception staff not very helpful or friendly but my overall holiday was fantastic & I will be returning very soon. Definetaly recommend this one.
Had 1 week in San Antonio Hotel, room with a sea view (on the second Floor), definitely the best holiday we`ve had. The room was very good, standard of hotel was easily worth the 4 star rating. Restaurant & Bars all excellent, good choice of food. We saw the evening entertainment twice, an Abba tribute band and a parrot show, both great fun. Lots to do in Puerto del Carmen in the day - catamaran sailing, submarine dive, camel rides on the Grand Tour etc., good craic in the evenings too, Rancho Texas night, Medieval Times night, comedy at Scotties'. A superb hotel,resort and holiday.
Just back from the San Antonio, temeratures 105f most afternoons....unusually hot..thank goodness for the air-conditioning in the lovely rooms.
My fiance and myself are just back from the San Antonio Hotel July 2004 and unfortunately we were not too impressed. On the plus side, the rooms were quite nice, pools were lovely and the beach was also beautiful. However we found the staff very rude and unhelpful and the lack of a smile or greeting really took from our holiday experience as we were made to feel as though we were an inconvenience - not paying guests. When we asked at reception how to go about joining in the activities (which were very varied), the receptionist was very abrupt and walked away as we were mid sentence. This was day one and only one example as there is a lack of space here, but rest assured this theme continued for the fortnight at the bar, restaurant etc. However the staff are the only flaw here. Facilities are wonderful otherwise. We however will not be returning!
De primera clase
Bueno, ¡Que buen hotel es el San Antonio! El ambiente del hotel al completo y la distribución son estupendos. Tiene tiendas dentro y el personal siempre está dispuesto a ayudar. No puedo dejar de mencionar que hay un piano que pueden usar los huéspedes. La comida es excelente y la playa y los alrededores son preciosos. Me encantaría vivir aquí algún día.
Well what a quality hotel San Antonio is. The whole atmosphere in the hotel and the layout is great. With internal shops and staff who are always willing to help. I can't resist mentioning the piano available for guests to use. The food is excellent and the beach and surrounding area are beautiful. I would love to live here one day.
I recently stayed at the San Antonio with a friend (she is wheel-chair bound) and all I will say is the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and they would always great you with a smile and ask how you were.
There was a great variety of entertainment (good entertainment) in the evenings which meant you did not have too go too far.
We enjoyed the holiday so much that we have booked to go back to the San Antonio in August this year.
I have just been at the San Antonio and I had great time. Even if rooms miss a bit f charme and are not very big they are very functional. Common areas (pools, jim, bars, restaurant,...) and services were excellent. Staff was terrific. I was there with my wife and a 6 months old baby. Because of the baby we were not easy clients but everybody was extremely friendly and always ready to help us. The night shows at the bar were very nice, drinks were very good. The buffet at brekfast, lunch and dinner was huge, always very rich and fresh. Don't expect high cuisine but it is much more than in other places. Also the other guests were very nice (mainly Italy, UK, Germany) and most of them had returned to the San Antonio for the third or fourth time. I had a very good rate so the value was terrific. Go, you will not regret !!
