Hotel Arona Gran details

The Arona Gran comes highly recommended. This hotel has earned more Thomson Gold Medals than any other hotel in the Canaries, which means it's consistently rated as top of its class by Thomson customers. It's easy to see how the hotel has received its praise. It overlooks a little pebble beach in Los Cristianos and offers up views of the harbour. What’s more, the resort’s main sandy stretch is just a 15-minute walk along a coastal promenade. It runs through to Playa de las Americas, and there are cafés and shops along the way.

You’ll find two pools at the hotel, plus a separate children’s pool. On the food front, breakfasts, lunches and dinners are help-yourself affairs, while lunch can be paid for at the poolside à la carte restaurant, which has a salad bar and a grill.

Bedrooms here have just been refurbished to include modern soft furnishings and flatscreen TVs. If you really want to indulge, upgrade to a sea-facing room. As well as great views, you can look forward to special extras like a welcome drink and a mini-bottle of wine waiting in your room when you arrive.

Los Cristianos guide

The popular holiday resort of Los Cristianos lies in a sheltered bay in the south-west corner of the island of Tenerife, merging into the more glitzy purpose-built resort of Playa de las Americas. Los Cristianos has burgeoned into a modern package-tour resort from its origins as a sleepy Canarian fishing village, but has managed to retain some of its traditional feel, despite the plethora of modern hotels, shopping centres and apartment blocks. The focal point of the resort is its working harbour, fronted by a square surrounded with restaurants, and sandy beaches encircling a crescent-shaped bay backed by a long, wide promenade that stretches to neighbouring Playa de las Americas. The old town centre stretches from the port up to the main shopping street in a grid-like pattern of pedestrianised streets, still inhabited by many local people. The resort's best beach is man-made, the Playa de las Vistas, covered in sand imported from the Sahara. Being just a few minutes away by cheap taxi from las Americas resort allows holidaymakers in Los Cristianos to enjoy a more sedate stay, while still able to access the bright lights and entertainment facilities of the more boisterous neighbour, especially when it comes to nightlife.

Activities

'Never a dull moment' could be a phrase coined to suit the southern holiday resort area of Tenerife island, where entertaining attractions and activities abound. The beaches of Los Cristianos are bristling with watersports opportunities, from jet skiing and windsurfing to scuba diving and banana boat rides. The busy little port is the embarkation point for ferry and hydrofoil trips to the nearby islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro, as well as boat trips for dolphin and whale viewing. In the immediate vicinity of the resort there are waterparks, an 18-hole golf course and facilities for go-karting, bowling, bungee-jumping, horse and camel riding. Several excursions are on offer, like trips to the capital, Santa Cruz, the Mount Teide National Park or the Tenerife zoo.

Restaurants

Los Cristianos has top-rate eateries on offer to holidaymakers, its trendiest being Piccolo, Bar El Cine, Plan B and Chill Out. Los Cristianos cannot be beaten for the quality and variety of eating establishments available throughout the day and night, from the ubiquitous English breakfast through midday fast-food snacks, to dinner from China, India, Mexico or anywhere else one cares to mention.

Nightlife

Los Cristianos is very well supplied with fun pubs, some discos and a few nightclubs, but holidaymakers will notice that the nightlife here is nowhere near as wild and exciting as it is next door in Playa de las Americas. Taxis are plentiful and available round the clock, however, so there is no problem popping off to join in the unadulterated partying in nearby lively spots like Veronicas and The Patch, which are usually jumping and pumping until 6am or so. Those who prefer a more sedate evening will be happy to sit back and unwind at a waterfront bar in Los Cristianos, watching the world go by and perhaps enjoying some restrained live music.

Shopping

One of the joys of holidaying in Tenerife is indulging in duty-free (or low-duty) shopping, and Los Cristianos and surrounds boasts a multitude of shops where it is easy to spend liberally on perfumes, tobacco, electrical goods, cameras and designer clothing. Handcrafts and cultured pearls are also popular buys for souvenir hunters, but these are best sought in reputable stores rather than from seafront hawkers. Local supermarkets stock familiar British brands, particularly those in the large San Eugene Centre. A tourist street market is held in Los Cristianos every Sunday near the Hotel Arona Gran, where most of the merchandise consists of cheap and cheerful Spanish tourist souvenirs, but there is fun to be had in haggling.

Negatives

Older visitors might have problems walking up the steep hills.
