No beach, lago lido needs an update floors very rough on bare feet. Yes its cold, but there were people swimming in it. We managed up to our ankles in the kids section!
Buses very good going to Playa de las Americas on the opposite side of road to hotel, Los Gigantes on hotel side of road. No queing system, just get on it asap!
TRIPS WITH THOMSON
Went up to Teide, too cloudy for cable cars, good trip, also did Loro Parque with Thomsons and had a lovely time.
Went to, Puerto Colon and got a boat ride with a company called SKYLINE. There were the freebird guys selling but they were so crowded it lokked packed. There was only the 4 ...
of us on the SKYLINE and it was fabulous. Free drinks and a sandwich each, we saw dolphins and the whales, well worth the money. Read More
Very safe(even though the Freebird boat people were insisting they were the safest, with a boat full of people) Our daugter was very safe and we all had a great time. Glad we did that trip as the we approached the guy in the office about the trip, he was not pushy and did not insist on a deposit like some other companies down there. His name was Stuart,he gave us his card and he remembered us when we went back a couple of days later.
Some trip sellers down there were really in your face, trying to get you to sign up to their trips, would recommend skyline company 100 per cent.
Building work is going on, they arrived at around 6.30am and finished at around 5pm. Little bit of noise but did not spoil holiday, everywhere you go there is a bit of building.
The resort has potential, it just is not there yet.
Always taxis outside which are reasonable.
This is just our opininion of our experience, you may have a totally different experience.
