Our flight today is not until later in the afternoon, so we had a relaxing morning in the hotel and another great breakfast provided by them. We enjoyed our lounge experience so much when we flew from London Gatwick to Dubai that we have booked again for today. Not sure if it is the difference in time we were there, but we found the food selection to be very very limited. (Aspire) It is a shame because we enjoyed the selection last time. Theresa did get to have a couple of nice glasses of wine though. We are going to try the Aspire Lounge at London Gatwick just one more time. Our flight home with Easyjet was lovely and uneventful and we arrived back to Tenerife about our scheduled time of around 9.00pm. We have a ... read more

05 mars 2019 : Nous partons visiter El Puerto de la Cruz, magnifique avec ses jets d'eau et piscines en bord de mer. Nous mangeons dans un restaurant spécialisé dans le poisson, que nous indique un autre couple de retraités du programme imserso et avec qui nous avons sympathisé. Nous faisons un excellent repas, puis nous assistons au carnaval de Santa Cruz de Ténérife qui est le point le plus important de notre voyage (près de trois heures de défilés et plus de 250 photos). Le soir, nous dînons à l'hôtel et nous couchons un peu fatigués.... read more

Not too much to report as our holiday starts to wind down. Thursday evening we ate at the Culinarium restaurant again and was looking forward to another enjoyable meal, we had carpaccio, tuna steak followed by veal. Again beautifully presented small haute cuisine type courses, but I didn't take the dessert as I wasn't feeling 100%. We both ate the same but something obviously didn't agree with me resulting in my staying in bed the next day with an upset tummy. We didn't make it to meet our friends for lunch on Friday which was a shame as we were looking forward to seeing them and revisiting Costa Adeji just along the coast from Los Cristianos. Saturday took things easy, the temperature has been over 30 degrees so it was sitting in the shade for us ... read more

More Strolling! We got up quite early but weren’t feeling hungry so just enjoyed some coffee & fruit on the balcony. The tide was way out this morning and we could see several locals looking for crabs in the rock pools. Aqua gym session not on today so time for another stroll - a bit further today, all the way to the harbour. As I walked along the promenade several people passed by, joggers taking their morning exercise, dog walkers (actual running) & the mobility scooters that ply the promenade all day long, some single occupancy and just a few tandem versions! The promenade is a mix of tiles, plain & patterned slabs and boardwalk. Passing all the cafes and seaside gift stalls the promenade eventually sprawled out overlooking a wide sandy beach. I was a ... read more

Another short stroll from the hotel. It's a little bit cloudy today (Tuesday) so an ideal time for another little stroll. There really is nothing much to see to the left of our hotel but it passes the time! Directly on the pebble beach there is a shack type abode looking quite derelict with a small fishing boat outside, I wonder who lives in a house like this? There is a man standing on the rocks with a fishing line so maybe the house is his, I will just have to wonder! The black volcanic rocks are all shapes and sizes, some worn smooth from the pounding of the waves, other quite rugged in texture. One was flat enough to rest my camera for a selfie. The ground underfoot was just a bit too rough for ... read more
