      by manuela1 Online Now Feb 5, 2011 at 8:17 AM

      Can anyone give their experience/opinion about which resort is the best for 2 adults travelling to Gran Canaria with no kids? We're thinking of going beginning of March 2011, for about a week for some winter sun and we would preferably like to go self catering and not be in close proximity to holiday makers with children! We don't want a very quiet resort and we don't want anything too mad either. A few bars and restaurants with a bit of culture thrown in and a beach and spas nearby will do. Any suggestions/reviews welcome.

      Hi everybody!!

      My boyfriend and I are visiting Gran Canaria for the New Year holidays from 26/12 to 2/01. We have already booked a room to stay from the 30th to the 2nd.
      For the first 4 nights, we tried to find local hosts through, unfortunately, because of the holidays, a lot of people are away. And we're not quite sure in which area is the best (convenient) to find a place to stay. Any advices will be very much appreciated!!

      And any tips about car rental are also welcomed!!

      Thanks in advance!!
