My last two days in Tenerife

... as clear and spotted with stars as it looked tonight; being above the clouds definitely helped us experience parts of the universe we normally never would have seen, and I'm glad we chose to do this for our final excursion. We got to hear traditional legends about the big/small bears (dippers) and Teide, learn about the life of a star, and see many planets and constellations--including Saturn, Mars, Sagitarus, Virgo, and many others. We even got to see the edge of the ...

... networks in all areas of the world. I really hear his message; after spending time in Internal Medicine and visiting the Taco Healthcare Center, I've realized that primary care is the first avenue to turn to in improving the health of our communities, and though I'm still interested in psychiatry, I also hope to include primary care in my career. I've discovered a new residency called the Triple Board, where you essentially spend five years training in ...

... so when he/she tries to translate for the physician, certain ideas get lost. I realized this week that by becoming a doctor, I am taking on a much bigger responsibility than most people can handle: to understand my patients and communicate to them the way they can understand. Hopefully my French and Spanish come in handy to this end, but regardless, there is a way to speak to patients, and as a doctor, I will need to master this communication.

... customs, into a taxi to arrive at Tony's apartment on Palm Beach. I had achieved the journey out and felt good. My gratitude to everyone who helped is beyond words and with a special 'thank you' to the wheelchair angel at Tenerife South airport who managed to clear a speedy flight path through crowds of passengers with her verbal beep beeping and deliver me from aircraft to taxi in record time.

Our first day on the island was spent exploring ...

... soup, fried cheese with honey and basil sauces, huge plates of chicken and ribs, and then finished the whole thing off with some cake. The people around me were mostly vegetarians, so I got to eat a lot of ribs and chicken--practically all of it actually--so by the time we got to the bus I was so full I felt like I was going to throw up. It was so worth it though.

It was so cool to meet our new fellows, and I loved going to the beach and seeing the mountains, so I had ...

    Un descanso relajante y fantástico


    Acabamos de regresar de nuestra visita de 7 días en el hotel San Felipe. ¡Que semana tan relajante! El hotel tenía todo lo que necesitamos y más. La localidad es fantástica y teníamos una habitación en la 14va planta en la parte trasera del hotel con vista a la piscina y con vistas impresionantes del Monte Teide. La comida y el restaurante eran de muy buen gusto, mucho mejores que los que he probado en España en años anteriores. Siempre tenían la opción de cocinar todo fresco y era presentada de una manera agradable, el personal era muy atento y cortés. Las habitaciones eran de un tamaño excelente y amuebladas de una manera correcta y con calidad. La localidad del hotel te permite caminar hacia el centro sin problema para que disfrutes de una fina selección de bares y tiendas. Esta zona se sentía segura cuando estabas caminando, aún tarde por las noches. Regresaremos de nuevo a este hotel y a la zona de Tenerife, esperemos que sea más pronto que tarde.

    Complejo precioso en zona de piscina botánica


    Parecía de lujo y la diversidad de árboles alrededor de la piscina era algo fantástico, completo con los nombres de las plantas botánicas.

    Toller entspannender Kurzurlaub


    Wir sind gerade aus einem 7tägigen Kurzurlaub im San Felipe Hotel zurkückgekommen. Was für eine tolle, entspannende Woche! Das Hotel hatte alles, was wir brauchten, und noch mehr. Seine Lage ist super, und unser Zimmer war im 14. Stock im hinteren Teil des Hotels mit Blick auf den wunderschönen Poolbereich und atemberaubender Sicht des Teide. Das Essen und das Restaurant waren von sehr hohem Standard, viel besser als das, was wir in den vergangenen Jahren in ganz Spanien kennen gelernt haben. Es gab immer eine Auswahl frisch gekochter Speisen, die ansprechend präsentiert wurden, und das Personal war sehr aufmerksam und höflich. Die Zimmer haben eine ausgezeichnete Größe und sind hochwertig ausgestattet. Durch die Lage des Hotels kann man bequem zu Fuß in die Stadt gehen, um die gute Auswahl an Bars und Geschäften zu genießen. Die Gegend fühlte sich sogar spät abends noch sicher an. Wir werden wieder in dieses Hotel und diese Region von Teneriffa kommen, hoffentlich schon bald.

    Besser ging's nicht


    Sind gerade aus einer Woche im Hotel San Felipe zurückgekommen, und unser Aufenthalt hätte nicht besser sein können. Das Hotel ist in einer ausgezeichneten Lage mit geradezu atemberaubendem Blick auf den Ozean. In den frühen Morgenstunden des Freitags und Samstags war es manchmal etwas laut, wenn die Clubbesucher nach Hause gingen (schienen Einheimische zu sein anstatt Touristen), was jedoch bei Weitem nicht so schlimm war wie in den Hotels in der Nähe des Zentrums. Das Hotel selbst ist sehr zivilisiert, ohne irgendwelche nächtilichen Lärmbelästigungen von anderen Gästen. Was sehr wichtig ist, wenn Sie wie ich Wert darauf legen, im Urlaub gut schlafen zu können. Schon bei unserer Ankunft waren wir sehr beeindruckt von dem Tempo und der Effizienz des Empfangspersonals und dem Begrüßungsglas Champagner. Die Kritik am Personal in vorherigen Bewertungen kann ich wirklich überhaupt nicht nachvollziehen, da jeder einzelne Angestellte stets höflich und hilfsbereit war.

    Great Relaxing Break


    We have just returned from a 7 day visit to the San Felipe Hotel. What a great relaxing week ! The Hotel was everything we required and more. Its location is great and we had a room on the 14th floor at the back of the Hotel overlooking the beautiful pool area and with stunning views of Mount Teide. The food and restaurant was of a very good standard much better than many experienced throughout Spain in previous years.There was always a choice of freshly cooked food nicely presented and the staff were very attentive and polite.The rooms are of a excellent size and furnished to a good standard and quality. The location of the hotel allows you to walk into town comfortably to enjoy a fine selection of bars and shops.This area felt safe as you walked around even late at night.

    Couldn't have been better.


    Just back from 1 week at Hotel San Felipe and our stay really couldn't have been better. The hotel is in an excellent location with truly breath taking views of the ocean.

    Beautiful complex in excellent botanical poolarea


    This had a sumptious feel and the diversity of trees around the pool was a great addition complete with dbotanical name tags .

    Civilised hotel, centrally located


    We'd lunched here a year ago, whilst staying at the nearby Orotava Palace and had preferred the San Felipe's pool and surroundings...the Orotava Palace pool had been carefully photographed so that it looked much bigger in the photo than it actually was. We were very happy at the San Felipe, our only reservation being the inadequate soundproofing of the sea facing rooms...we could hear the Atlantic pounding away each night, then at around 5.00 a.m. the sound of returning clubbers (or early morning workers) from the road outside, even though we were on the eleventh time we'll ask for a room overlooking the pool and Mount Teide. In addition it would appear that they've recently refloored the bedrooms and we were woken by a guest in the room above walking around and around (presumably packing) at around 6.00 a.m. on our last morning. Whilst fitting laminated flooring is the hotel's responsibility, why can't all hotel guests be more considerate about noise at night and early in the morning? Most are, as always it's just a few who aren't.

    Rude Staff


    I first stayed at this hotel in 1984 when it was a rather exclusive 5 star. I have stayed there twice since and it is now nowhere near the standard it once was. Last week, on arriving, I left the car outside while I went into reception to enquire about availability of spaces in the car park. I was told flatly that the car park was full, and when I asked where I could leave the car the receptionist just shrugged...not a good first impression! Next, having booked a double room for single occupancy, I was given a very small single room on the first floor, complete with smells from the sewer. After much insistence, and a very rude attitude from reception, I was given the room I had actually booked a day later. I was only there for 3 nights so was not very pleased. I will not be staying there again.

    Not bad


    This hotel is fairly large and in the 70's style common to most of the hotels in this part of the island. It used to be a 5 star but has gone down to a 4 - and this is a Spanish 4, which might be 3/4 elsewhere.
