Any good restaurants / bars close to the hotel that you would recommend?

No, there are none as the hotel is very secluded, there is nothing really outside of the hotel.

Thank you for your reply.

Where did you travel when you wanted a meal outside of the hotel? Did you use taxis or is there a good bus service available to go to places such as Playa Las Americas?

I went into playa Las Americas but I got a taxi from the hotel which was about 16 euros. I went up by the Safari shopping centre which has lots of shops and resturants around that area. You can get a free bus from the hotel, you just book it with reception the night before. Its only about 15 mins journey in a taxi and about 30 mins on the bus.

Pauly - you could also try getting a taxi to Puerto Colon. This is not quite as far up the coast as PDLA and is a little quieter. If you ask the cab driver to drop you off at the marina you can then wander along the promenade until you find somewhere you fancy. The prom goes for about 2 miles, ending at Playa del Fanabe. You can get a taxi back from there.

Hi Sugarlips

Did you leave the compound for long enough to go to the newly built beach area in Playa Paraiso? (the one that opened a couple of months ago). If so, is it worth a trip?

I didn't go to the new beach so I couldn't comment on it. I didn't hear anyone in the resort talking about it either.

Hi Nildesperanda,

I think we will take your advice and check out Puerto Colon during our stay, it sounds just what we are looking for.

We did have a look at the new lido beach in Playa Paraiso. It looks good from above looking down - we hope to actually go in there early next week and see what it has to offer.

Have a great time Pauly - let me have a 'beach report' when you get back?
