Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife Pool

Hard Rock Hotel, Tenerife

Let’s cut to the chase here. The service at the Hard Rock Hotel in Tenerife is the best I have ever experienced in Europe. We’ll come back to that later, but if great service floats your boat, then you should book a stay.

Why Book A City Break As Part Of Your Main Holiday?

As travel agents, we explore all the options for our clients to make sure they get the best possible price for their holiday. Surprisingly, that sometimes means taking indirect flights – for example, if you’re travelling to The Canary Islands for your summer holiday, it can be cheaper to drop into Madrid or Barcelona on the way out or back than to take a direct flight. It sounds odd, but it’s true and it’s something we arrange for clients all…

A lot depends on the aircraft – we flew from London to Barcelona a few months ago, and the aircraft was a Boeing 777, so we enjoyed the full business class experience, even down to fold flat beds. But on most European routes BA flies Airbus A320’s and it isn’t that exciting. Read on for more…. We flew business return from Lanzarote to London Gatwick recently. We elected for the offered…
