The Tenerife region
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands; formed around the very impressive mount Tiede the island has seen massive changes over the past 30 years. The south of the island has established itself as the holiday hotspot, largely due to the fact that it boasts year-round sunshine. The larger resorts of Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos are only a 10 minute ride from Alondras and there is a daily bus service located 5 minutes walk from the complex.
The capital of Santa Cruz and Puerto de las Cruz are situated in the north of the island are both worth a visit. The far north east is home to the breathtaking views of the Taganana hills whilst on the North West you will find Masca and the most wonderful canarian town of Garachico. No trip to Tenerife is complete without a trip up to the mountain, ride the cable car up to the peak or just relax in the purpose built restaurant at its base.
You will find numerous attractions, certainly too many to mention but loro parue, the Aqua park and coming soon the Siam theme park are all great places to visit with the kids. Tenerife has some wonderful beaches, the best by far can be found in Los Cristianos and is called las vistas beach, a must for you sun/sea worshippers.
The Costa del Silencio / Balcon del Mar area
Meaning the 'Coast of Silence', this quiet resort seems like light years from its next door neighbour Playa de las Americas. Most days are spent lazing in the sunshine. Perfect for winding down and perfecting your tan.
When you're feeling active, the town centre is filled with shops and restaurants serving international cuisine together with lots of great music bars offering fun nights out. You also find tempting seafront cafes and you can watch the surfers from the rocks. Close by a small stony beach and rocky headlands ideal for sunbathing.
Costa del Silencio is one of the warmest resorts on the island because of its location. It is rain free for the majority of the year with the best weather in August. The temperature rarely falls below 15C in the winter and in the summer it is around 30C. Being on the south coast means that the water temperatures are also warmer which is good for people interested in trying water sports.

23 Feb 2012
This apartment was basic but clean and handy for restaurants and shops. It did not quite live up to its advert as there was no wifi and the tv was old and just about worked. The apartment could do with a bit of updating and the washing machine needs a new door handle! Also there were n sunbeds at the pool - only very hard concrete to sit on. On the plus side there was good security.
