Tenerife Day 1 / From The Airport To The Hotel & Lunch


Luckily the flight from Gatwick to Tenerife South was shorter than scheduled by 30 minutes or so, it was 3 hours and 40 minutes. We had booked a taxi, which took us to the hotel, it took about 30 minutes. The scenery on the way reminded me of California.


We thought we’d been to beach resorts so many times while we were living in Hong Kong and Singapore and were tired of them, but we started missing them. We also wanted to have a break from the cold and wet English winter weather. We didn’t want to fly more than 4 or 5 hours and wanted it to be warm enough, so Tenerife seemed like a good choice, To be honest we don’t know much about resorts we can go to from England and our neighbours have been to Tenerife so we thought it should be nice enough.

ホテルは夫が色々と調べれくれて、Gran Melisa Palacio de Isora というホテルの中の十六歳以下の子供が入れないレッド・レベルに予約を入れました。入口も他の部分とは別になっていて、ドアを開けるとラウンジがあり、ラウンジ内かすぐ外のテラスでカヴァをいただきながらチェックインができます。

As for the hotel, my husband did some research and thought this hotel, Gran Melisa Palacio de Isora, looked good and we booked a room in their “Red Level”, where no children under 16 are allowed. They have their own entrance, and when you get in the gate it’s a lounge of Red Level, where you can check in with a glass of Cava on the terrace.


Behind the hotel are some mountains.


After checking in we had lunch before getting into the room. There are 8 restaurants in the hotel but not all are open at one time, only 2 were open for lunch yesterday – Mexican and Mediterranean and we decided to try Mediterranean.


My husband had Caesar Salad with chicken, which he said he enjoyed.


I chose Gazpacho and Iberico Ham from the starters, but they were both huge, I had a half of each. Just one starter would have been enough.
