Since comments are frequently on unrelated posts, it seems more sensible just having one page for readers to comment as they please about anything that interests them … within the context of being Tenerife related, obviously! The readers’ recent comments list has therefore disappeared from the right hand column, and instead there’s a link to this page just under the search box and the twitter icon. Please post your comment in the box at the bottom of this page.

Please feel free to chat, though I’ll prune older comments when it gets too unwieldy. If you have a question, please check first that it hasn’t already been answered – just type a key word or two in the search box on the right hand side of your screen. If you’re just here to insult, abuse, or troll, you and your posts will be binned.


  1. Hi all
    As Janet and others have commented extensively over the past 16 months enforcement of Covid restrictions has been a serious issue and alongside irresponsible behaviour has had a significant implication for many who are following the rules
    After viewing properties over a several weeks our Friday flight home was cancelled so we were overnighted in a hotel in Adeje
    20m from our room on a piece of waste land behind a bar the area was being used as a nightclub with 75/100 people partying beyond midnight- no masks, no social distancing
    The hotel was asked by ourselves and others to call the police but nothing happened. It would appear the hotel had given up reporting this regular occurrence
    In exasperation I have sent full details to the British Counsel with a video of the nightclub in action
    I hope readers of this will not lambast me for reporting it in this way as talking to elderly couples either side of our hotel room neither had slept properly over many days and one were in tears telling us this having had no help from the hotel

  2. I am delighted to say that I too won a holiday from the Cabildo and can’t wait to start choosing where to go. I was astonished to get notification of it on a difficult day. 😃🎉

  3. Sounds like a great event to be part of – that terrace with a view and excellent hospitality and company.

    Can we not meet up in groups of 15 or so and form a fighting force for good?

    If not, good luck anyway!

    Don’t see why I can’t use my own website for this …

    Question: If you were asked to suggest a place for an event that fulfilled the following requirements, what would it be?

    * Private terrace available to host up to 15 or so
    * can provide buffet lunch on that terrace
    * has nice view
    * is in west Tenerife – ie the west coast, Los Cristianos to Los Gigantes and all parts inland
    * has private and secure parking
    * is 4* minimum quality

    Thank you for any suggestions!

    I have approved that lovely comment, despite Janet’s possible embarassment.
