Here we are another 2 years on and going back to Tenerife. As a change we’ve booked into apartment 2B2 on Victoria 1 which is in an area we’ve not stayed before when in Los Cristianos.
Up at 4.45am and had a lovely ride to the airport. We got a meal deal in M&S before going through security and realised just as we were about to go through that we’d bought bottles of water, so we quickly downed them before we went through. I always worry that my CPAP machine may cause problems but to my surprise it was the empty water bottle I’d bought to take with me! It has got a gel inner that you freeze and I’d forgotten to take it out. We were also put through the full body scanner and frisked! They did let me take my bottle through though, thank goodness. Next stop, breakfast in Wetherspoons Flying Horse. Not cheap but really good!
We did our usual wander around the shops and then made our way to Gate 38 and onto the plane. Flying BA may not be the cheapest but we did get ok seats and the food and coffee was M&S so good quality. They don’t take cash though, so be aware, debit or credit cards only! Nothing enticed either of us in their duty free shop.
The flight was uneventful and we landed near to time and picked up our Sun Transfers driver so easily. What a lovely man who took our cases out to the mini coach and dropped us off at Victoria 1 with no problems.
Reception was closed being a Sunday so picked keys up from the resort bar, definitely not my type of place I’m afraid, it stank of old chip fat. Staff were nice but we wouldn’t frequent it.
Our apartment was up some steps, no help to get cases up there and with my bad back and knees it was a pain!. Very clean but a bit dated, and wifi was awful! They give you a code but only one device can use it any one time! That’s so ridiculous, luckily I have data to use! View was good across to the sea and we could see the ferries coming into the harbour. Here’s a list of the things we didn’t & did l.ike about the apartment.
1 loo roll – had to buy more, other places we’ve stayed had at least 4
no washing up liquid – had to buy a bottle, again most places now supply
Wifi was almost non-existent hard to connect and stay connected
Towels too small
Leaflets in information book were very out of date
TV listing was out of date – the channel numbers were wrong
