Top 5: Perfect Places for a Last Minute HolidayBy Angelica Malin
You’ve been such a good person recently, doing your chores, going to bed early, helping old ladies across the road – surely it must be time for a holiday! Even if you haven’t been all that good, this is the perfect time to book a last minute holiday as there are a host of great deals out there. And if it’s sunshine you’re looking for, there can be no better place than the Canary Islands. Here we’ve put together a list of amazing hotels for you to consider.
Hard Rock Tenerife
Welcome to one of Tenerife’s least touristy resorts, Playa Paraiso, and one of its newest hotels, The Hard Rock Tenerife. Located on the southwest of this sun soaked island, the Hard Rock (despite its loud name) is a relatively quiet spot where you can enjoy the finer things in life. Choose from a few shops, bars and restaurants and luxuriate on the area’s fabulous beaches. Liven things up during your stay at Siam Park, one of the world’s best water parks, which is only 13km away. If you are a nature lover, UNESCO protected Teide National Park is only 40km away.
Hotel H10 Timanfaya Palace
Looking for a grown up holiday at a good price? Then head for Lanzarote and the Hotel H10 Timanfaya Palace, an adults-only hotel, only a stone’s throw away from the famous Flamingo and Playa Blanca beaches. The whole area surrounding this hotel is characterised by relaxed sophistication and elegant shorefront living. As part of your holiday, why not enjoy some diving in the azure waters that lap Lanzarote’s stunning coastline?
Seaside Hotel Palm Beach
With a stylish retro décor, three restaurants, two heated pools and fabulous rooms, this hotel has all you need for a comfortable last minute getaway. Plus, it is located right between Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles. At the former you can enjoy quiet walks through sandy dunes and lazy days by the sea, while at Playa del Ingles you’ve got some of the best nightlife in the Canary Islands. The sunsets you’ll see in this part of Gran Canaria are spectacular!
Sensatori Resort Tenerife
Another Tenerife favourite, the Sensatori Hotel is immensely popular with last minute holidaymakers. Located on Tenerife’s golden west coast in the Guia de Isora area, visitors are pretty much guaranteed sunshine for most of the year. Cue dramatic scenery too, as the resort is backed by the impressive Mount Teide, Spain’s highest mountain. Relax during the day along fashionable promenades such as Playa San Juan.
San Marcial Apartments
For something a little different from the usual hotels and resorts, why not try a self catering holiday in the Canary Islands? At the San Marcial Apartments in Lanzarote, you’ll have the perfect blend of self-catering freedom and entertaining amenities. Between enjoying some chill-time at the pool bar and enjoying the local scenery, take some time to visit Aquapark Costa Teguise – an amazing day out!
