... of flying has always curled my toes because it means another adventure to somewhere new has started. Looking out at the brilliant silvery white cotton wool clouds in anticipation of spotting a harp playing angel soon gave way to clear skies as we past over the Bay of Biscay and ship spotting took my attention.
As we reached the Canaries the black volcanic rock of the mountains soon gave way to beach fringed blue seas next we were down, through ...
... into my world there. It was so perfect. I have to say, if they spoke french, I would move there! LMAO.
Fun fact about the Spanish Canary Islands. They are closer to Africa than they are to Spain. One of the Islands is also the birth place of that language composed seulement of whistling! Very Very cool!
Talk to you all later! Luv and Hugs from France.

On a (very) early Saturday morning we checked out of our hotel in Nantes wearing ski jackets and flew to the south side of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Ski jackets were quickly traded for shorts, flip flops and sunburnt British tourists as apparently we had arrived in the Mexico of Europe! After locating our hotel we decided to rent a car for our first week. I was tentative because after all, we hadn't driven at all for five months now but Mike was confident so we went and picked ...

Came with fries as well so went for a long walk afterwards to walk a little of it off but finished up with an ice cream - such a holiday thing to do!
Our coach transfer collected us from the same location it ...

Spent the rest of the day eating lunch, playing Fluxx, having a snooze, taking over the world in Risk and just relaxing. Went out for food where I had a hamburger and Anthony had a Mexican skewer. Then San Fran malfunctioned and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Be Live La Nina Costa De Adeje
Wonderful H10 La Nina
Just returned from La Nina. What can I say, other than a wonderful week. I sent an Email asking for a Sea view room as it was my birthday, this they gave us at no extra charge, and on the evening of my birthday, a knock came at the door, and a bottle of Cava, with 2 stem glasses was delivered on a silver platter, compliments of the Management and Staff. A wonderful gesture I thought that they had taken the trouble to note my comments. As regards the hotel, apparently it was only built 2 years ago, and there is so much space, the atmosphere is totally relaxed. Breakfast is served from 7.30am to 10.30am so there is no rush, or waiting for a table, you choose your own table, not wait to get shown to one, lunch if you take it is served from 12.30 - 3.30pm, so again, no rush, and evening meal is from 7.30 - 10.30pm. The choice of foods are vast, from proper gammon bacon and eggs fried while you wait, to all the usual cereals, many choices of breads, hot and cold, lots of pastries, lots of fresh fruit, the list goes on, and of course, washed down with Cava!!!. You just help yourself to this. The same choice is available at lunch and dinner. There is a lovely terrace where you can eat out of an evening. The rooms are fully air conditioned and we needed that in May, lovely and big, lots of cupboard space. A mini fridge is in the room as well which is neice for keeping your bottle of wine or your water chilled. The drinks at the bar were no different to the bars, and there is a beautiful pool area, with lots of loungers, and not reserved while we were there, a lovely pool side bar serving snacks both hot and cold all day. The staff are very friendly and helpful. All in all, I cannot praise this hotel enough, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, and will definitely return. The area it is situated in is also very good, you are near enough to the night life if you want it, and far enough away to miss all the noise. We went to see the whales from Puerto Colon, which is about a 5 minute walk away, which was fantastic, so rather than do the trip with your Rep., just walk round to the marina, and book it yourself. The little bars around the marina are really good value for money, and along the prom. at Adeje, you can buy a pint of Dorada for 1 Euro!! All in all we had a wonderful time.
We stayed at La Nina in March 2005 to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and found it to be an excellent choice. The hotel was spotless, the staff very friendly and extremely helpful, convenient location and superb sea views from our 8th floor room. Can't comment about the food as we ate out most of the time, did go down for breakfast some days and there was plenty to please all palates. Would definitely go back again - just hope I don't have to wait for Golden Anniversary!!
Great For Kids
I think this hotel is very good, we have 2 kids 3,1 stayed in juinor suite which was ideal (they have own room) very clean. good mixture of people. Food was good tried to cater for everyone taste, they have a microwave at breakfast and dinner which was very handy for heating baby bottles & food. Evening entertainment was ok not great kids loved the disco, and the swimming pool just the right height for 3 year old ( just below her waist) Close to beach and shops, big supermarket 5 min walk (up hill) Overall a really nice, friendly, very clean hotel, just evening entertainment needs to be improved
We stayed in La Niņa for a week in January. In spite of the good advice from the User of North Yorkshire and our request to the reception desk about being far from the nightclub, one night it was impossible to sleep. Even staying on the third floor over the reception desk!!
The disco ran beyond its closing time and the hotel didn't do anything. We had to call to the police.
On the last day we filled out a complaint form to the authorities. People who have normal hearing avoid this hotel!!
-Free car park.
-Swimming pool area
-New buildings's rooms
-Very noisy disco
-Location in an impersonal place. If you don't go out of there, you wouldn't know what country you are in.
-Average food but no taste and repetitive.
-Cold air in the hall area for faults of construction.
We stayed there the first week in December. The hotel is excellent, very clean, friendly staff, lovely pool, organised activites, good location for the beach and bars. We would recommend learning a little Spanish as during the activites both day and night, the English was limited by the entertainment party, we knew they were making jokes but we just weren't sure what they were saying! A few phrases learnt would be helpful and any attempts we made were appreciated. It made a nice change for us English speakers to have to make the effort.
One small point, we were on the first floor of bedrooms and could hear the bass music from the nightclub underneath, we didn't ask to change rooms as it was bearable but maybe not for people with children.
The restaurant had a different theme every night, some nights were better than others, it depended on your tastes. My party all had different likes and we could always find something to suit. Bring long trousers for men.
We would highly recommend it.
We have just returned from hotel la nina, cannot
