... but for someone like me who suffers with acute travelbug what exactly lies over the hill is more interesting.
The following days were spent exploring a little further along the coast northward. Arising quite early did not entice me to exercise myself, it gave me the chance to try to get my brain into some kind of order with crossword or some of the numerous number games which fill the centers of newspapers. Even as early risers the availability ...
... Paris because it was so beautiful. I think I might be crazy LOL.
Anyway, there was mother and it's baby that stayed right with the boat. They were so beautiful I had the urge to jump off the boat and swim with them. I really had to restrain myself, as the urge was really very very intense. I just wanted to touch them. LOL. But thanks to my parents good sense that was knocked into me as a kid, I didn't. But it was hard. They are ...
... 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 ...
... we made a day of walking through the city and wound our way back to the dock. I took tons of pictures to show you how beautiful this city is but all with cell phone. Hard to believe I walked off ship without my camera!
Most of the people we encountered spoke English but I really felt at a disadvantage not speaking Spanish. I don't know if we'll get back here to The Canaries, but it was a great experience to see the two islands we did. ...
... track of all the nautical miles we’ve done and we needed 2,634 to make our grand total reach an impressive 100,000. How many had we done? Unbelievably, we’d sailed a total of 2,624. I could not believe it… we were only 10 miles short. 10 miles!! So we’ve done a total of 99,990 nautical miles and will have to wait until our next cruise to reach our milestone. :-(
We had a decent breakfast in the Palms ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Vincci Seleccion La Plantacion del Sur Costa De Adeje
Avoid the weekends
My husband and I stayed at the Vincci for a week and upon arrival were delighted to find we had been upgraded to a suite. Some of the service though was patchy - the turn down services didn't always happen and our mini-bar wasn't always restocked. The pool restaurant was overpriced for very average food and over the weekend space on the sun terraces was really limited. The location of the hotel is good in as much as you are away from the excesses of Las Americas but there is very little to do in Adeje and little in the way of quality shopping - that said it is ideal for a week of sun but is not quite up to five star standards yet
We spent a week in April at the Plantacion hotel in a standard twin-bed room on half board.
We're still here and feel compelled to write a review to rave about this gem of a place... the hotel is fantastic with plenty of space for all their guests and obviously with it being a brand new hotel they have experienced some teething problems but if you are looking for a beautifully furnished, quiet and relaxing holiday then this is definitely the place for you.
We booked La Plantacion fairly late through a well-know late-availability website as it offered a substantial saving on the room. Our first hurdle was finding the place - the motorway exit numbers on their website don't tally with the ones on the signs so although it should take around 20 minutes from Tenerife South it took us considerably longer. Plus the postcode isn't right so the ViaMichelin directions were wrong and the phone number just the Vincci hotels booking line so they couldn't help either.
Spent an appalling week in this hotel over Christmas 2005. Hotelbeds.com had booked us in and the hotel had not long opened. Even so, the rooms we had booked weren't available. The rooms we were given lacked functioning air conditioning and repeatedly flooded when the shower was used. The room TV's failed to work and they could not seem to fix them. Most of the facilities advertised were not available during our stay. The pools were unheated, the spa facilities were limited (no female masseuse for the women and no treatments!), and the pool bar couldn't even manage to produce a cocktail. The food in the hotel restaurant was dire and almost identical "fast food" every day. There was repeated recycling of leftovers from breakfast to dinner and back to breakfast, until the fruit, for example went dry (but was still being offered). There was sporadic building work. The advertised entertainment programme failed to materialise. The staff were, with one or two exceptions, surly and unhelpful. This was, quite simply, the worst holiday I have ever had. I would advise strongly that you consider an alternative hotel.
Just returned from a 5 day break in Vincci La Plantacion. Couldn't find any reviews on the hotel before we left but thought that we'd risk it given that it only opened in December. We certainly weren't disappointed. The hotel is beautifully designed, the furnishings are superb and the views are stunning. Our junior suite was first class; the gardens, pools and spa are probably the best we've seen. The hotel's "a la carte" restaurant is well worth a visit as are the seafood restaurants down by the beach. Can't wait to return.
It's already been said..........
I have just come back from 2 days at the La plantacion and I totally agree with what has already been said. It is a genuine 5 star property with service to match.
I recently travelled to the Vincci La Plantacion on a last minute package deal with a well known UK premium tour operator. The hotel is brand new (opened in December 05) and beautiful - dotted around the common areas are pieces of Indonesian-style furniture and sculptures that complement the stylish decor. My room was fantastic - I stayed in a junior suite with a four-poster bed, two plasma TVs, and one of the best showers I have experienced in years of travelling.
We have just returned from a long weekend at the wonderful Vincci La Plantacion hotel on the Costa Adeje in Tenerife. This hotel is pure 5* luxury and having very recently opened (in December 2005), the hotel is in beautiful condition and all the facilities are brand new.
