Win A Holiday At The Hotel Jardin Tropical

Leggy promotion girls handing out cocktails and posh nibbles at the pool side, that was my first experience of the Hotel Jardin Tropical back in October 2008. It was the launch party for the first Tenerife Champions Cup beach volleyball competition and I was snapping photos of some of the competing players and grabbing the odd interview, honest I wasn’t enjoying all the pampering – well maybe a little bit.

Fast forward and Tenerife Magazine are offering a weeks half board holiday at this four star luxury zone in Costa Adeje. Hotel Jardin Tropical has moved with the times, they had a complete refurbishment in 2010 but still have wonderful tropical gardens and a great range of food. There’s the El Patio restaurant that makes the most of the garden setting, Las Rocas for gourmet cuisine at the headland with the sea lapping just beyond, and Las Mimosas, a bright cheery dining room and patio where breakfast comes with extra rise and shine.

Costa Adeje is one of my favourite wandering areas, starting out at La Caleta I often walk along the coastal promenade past Hotel Jardin Tropical and the other posh modern hotels.The beaches are high quality and the mix of water sports and safe bathing make it popular with families – and there’s always somewhere I can buy a big gooey ice cream and drible it all down my shirt.

Anyway back to the competition, just answer a simple question at the Tenerife Magazine home page and wait for the draw on 31st May 2012. The prize is a week’s half board holiday for two to be taken, subject to availability within 12 months. The prize doesn’t include flights and is not transferable and must be claimed within 2 weeks of the draw or it will be re-drawn. Good luck.
