      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

      Data SIM Card in Lanzarote

      by BurrenYoga Online Now Oct 18, 2016 at 7:34 AM

      Does anybody know of what deals exist to buy a Data SIM card in Lanzarote?

      I am hoping to buy a 2 GB data SIM card for my unlocked MiFi device, and when it runs out, to buy a new one.

      Just in case coverage of the different networks vary by location, I will be mainly using this in Costa Teguise.

      Any advice appreciated.

      Thanks in advance,

      Coronas Playa

      by Lauz Online Now May 28, 2016 at 4:27 AM

      Myself and friend are booked to stay at the Coronas Playa in Costa Teguise in July. Does anyone have any recent experience of this hotel? In particular the average age of the guests? I ask because we booked this hotel on the Thomson website, it looks lovely, all inclusive, near the beach etc but recent reviews have got us a little worried. Quite a few people commenting that the hotel seems to be very popular with a much older crowd (age 70+ Making up a large %of the guests) we know it is adult only but expected there to be a wide range of ages! We are in our early 30s and are worried we will feel very out of place in this hotel now. Anyone been during a summer season and can let us know? Thanks!

      by Annaragdoll Online Now Oct 2, 2015 at 9:14 PM

      I booked a holiday to Costa Teguise leaving on 8th November. Is it hot enough to get a sun tan? Also does the tourist season slow down at this time of year as I'd like to know if all the facilities are operational, i.e water parks, markets, etc.

      One more question - What's the bus number from Costa Teguise to Arrecife? I am planning to go to market there.

      Thanks in advance for your replies.

    • Driving on Lanzarote

      by lud016 Online Now Jul 15, 2015 at 9:48 PM

      We are on a cruise ship visiting Lanzarote on a Sunday - 20 September and are planning hiring a car to sightsee.
      Our plans are to drive to Mirador del Rio and then through Orzola to Jameos del Aqua and Ceuva de los Verdes and then back to the port via Arrieta.

      We welcome comments and feed back on our plans - is there anywhere else we should try and stop enroute and is this doable in the time we have? Looking on a map the distance does not seem too far - are the roads good?

      We will be in port from 12 noon and want to be back on board by 6 pm.

I usually go in March/ April time but this is the first time in october, is it usually busy this time of year .I notices that The show bar Flanigans was closed last time i went and the Bloke(Who addresses himself as the 3rd Marquis of Barnsley) was doing his act in titos some nights.Is he still there or hopefully he's back in flanigans showbar with Rita . A bar we used to go was caesars disco(Near Titos but again this was shut in April) will this place be open in October. There's the showbar other end of the strip near the owl and the pussy cat bar can not remember its name . We always go in ruta 66 and Murphys bar best two bars here.
