Hotel Los Fariones in Puerto del Carmen is now closed for renovation for the next year and a bit but you wouldn’t know it from their website which still allows you to attempt to book a room, but fails to return a room.
It’s only if you scroll to the end of the homepage that you’ll see the following notice!
Snow? Ice? Cold rain and biting wind? What are you talking about? Look at the sunshine streaming down through the palm trees! The swimming pool is nice and refreshing.
I can dream can’t I? This is the view from our room in Hotel Los Fariones in Puerto Del Carmen. Lovely hotel, and while we were there in May 2006 it was nice and quiet. Breakfast is great, although their sausages tasted strange and I still remember that almost 3 years later. Beds were *very* hard. My wife and I had to get a massage by the end of our stay to get rid of the aches and pains from lying on them.
By the last weekend it was busier and I swear, I know it’s an urban myth, but I heard German tourists rushing out to put their towels on the pool loungers first thing in the morning. Looks like I’m not the only one to experience this early morning rush:
The trick to beating this tactic and not having to deal with the angry sunbather when they return is to leave the towel on the ground and move the entire chair somewhere else.
