First of all: for me the hotel is just a basic place to rest, he should not strain and create discomfort, he should not get into the eyes and soul, there should not be annoying staff and strain "Activiti.

The hotel is just a miracle! The bulk of the tourists there - it's Spanish. There were many couples with very young children. And the best part - the children were always somewhere in the case and does not strained. There is a children's pool with playground, and room for children. Pools at the hotel very much, and there are quite shallow, there are also children bathed. This is what I saw - as she traveled without children, respectively, particularly those not interested. The hotel is 20 minutes drive from the southern airport. Go to the beach for 10 minutes. Almost every hour there is a free shuttle service.

Hotel | "The territory is beautiful"

The hotel is worth the money for his request, and the remoteness of massovok is only a plus.Took breakfast - well fed, although the same every day, but the special dishes change every day for breakfast I honestly never watched. Breakfast from 6-30 to 10-30, the standard buffet (cold appetizers and 3-4 types of hot dishes such as omelets, scrambled eggs, pancakes, etc.), pastries, fruits, various cereals, juices (orange and carrot, and sometimes tomato - fresh), coffee and tea. In general it seems to me still something you can find anyone, including kids to feed. Once tried to dine at the hotel - well, let's say nothing special and in my opinion for our order fairly expensive, b...Read More

Gran Hotel El Mirador

Hotel | "Intimate atmosphere, great"

The main thing that interested me before leaving - access to the beach. As a result, we used the side gate. Lay by the pool (where the water was about 25 degrees), and the beach go together - the Germans just in swimsuits with towels. Virtually all of our stay ocean storms and swim at the Duque could only be the part where breakwater forms the letter "G" (in reverse). Therefore, use the side gate (number 23 on the plan), on her feet 70-80 until the lateral part of the descent of unequipped Duke. But this neoborudovannost not interfere, since pay for the expensive beds to lie on the sand on towels for us personally inconvenient, and the pool very comfortable. Also on the beach in this part there ...Read More

Teide Volcano - one of the places "MAST SEE" on the island. So consider the guidebooks.We're a little doubtful, so have seen up to this volcano, and the action, and this, at first sight, not even smoking.

And from the crowds of tourists.And the scenery there is quite a unique ...At first the Mirador (viewing platform), which begin after Vilaflor, it becomes clear that we are "above" the clouds)))Soon for Boca del Tauce road starts at the bottom of the caldera Las Canadas, at an altitude of about 2000m.

La Orotava

Attraction | "the oldest cities of the island"

La Orotava Photo, Puerto De La Cruz, Tenerife
Quote:
La Orotava - one of the oldest cities of the island. And one of the most charming))). I really wanted to stay here in my next visit. Firstly it is located in a picturesque valley, and secondly on the narrow, steep streets with houses, a survivor of the conquistadors, there were almost no crowds seen.
And this - the garden city. Or a city park.
Garden Marquesado de la Quinta Roja. The Mausoleum was built there because the Catholic Church refused a Christian burial, the Marquis.
And quite a number of other garden - botanic.
The city is a lot of old colonial houses with carved wooden balconies. The most famous of them home and called - Casa de los Balcones (from 1632).
