Los Cristianos Awaits You With A Free Weekend At Arona Gran Hotel

Biased me? too right I am, I chose to live in Los Cristianos and love the beachfront so im very happy to offer you the chance to win a weekends half board accomodation at Arona Gran Hotel. I could have used the headline “come and be my near neighbour for a weekend” but I don’t want to put you all off.

Those nice people at Spring Hotels have cosied up to us at Tenerife Magazine to offer this great prize, what can I say, it’s four star, with a large swimming pool terrace that looks out to the Atlantic over Los Tarejales beach, packed with top facilities for food, drink and entertainment and has a nice relaxed friendly attitude.

Ok that’s the official blurb done, let me tell you what that area means to me and maybe it will give you a few ideas. It’s a short brisk walk along the sea promenade into the heart of Los Cristianos with some interesting small bars, lively but not throbbing like Amy Winehouses head on a Sunday morning – well any morning really. Los Tarajales beach is pretty basic for sunbathing and swimming, walk about 10 minutes along to the bigger sandy crescents, but it’s the harbour side so you get to see the huge ferries coming and going from the other Canary Islands, they always fascinate me and pop up in many visitors holiday snap collection.

Sunday mornings the big local market takes place a short shuffle along from the Arona Gran Hotel, it’s always popular and a nice way to build up an appetite for the day. If your a bit of a fidget like me and like to go walking, those big steep cliffs to the east will soon beckon you. Montaña Guaza is a wonderful medium difficulty walk, there are well marked steps up the side and a couple of choices of route but either way the views across Los Cristianos and beyond are well worth the effort.

Before I get too carried away I better tell you how to win this prize break. just click like on the Tenerife Magazine page and join our Facebook fans in the draw for Monday 4th October. The prize is for two adults on a half board basis, it doesn’t include transport and cannot be exchanged for cash and is subject to availability. You have 12 months to take the prize from the draw date and need to confirm acceptance of the prize otherwise we will draw it again. See you soon.
