Naviera Armas Ferry – Arrecife to Las Palmas

We were planning a trip to Gran Canaria from our home in Lanzarote, and our first thought was to fly there and hire a car. But I decided to look at the comparative costs of using the ferry service, and I was surprised to find that they were broadly similar, so we elected for the ferry, on the grounds that we could take our own, convertible, car and enjoy cruising around Gran Canaria. It turned out to be a classic…

Canary Island Hopping With Binter Airlines

I was in the middle of a holiday in Gran Canaria, but I needed to get back to Lanzarote for a meeting. It seemed crazy, but I checked online and found out that it is not only possible to fly from Gran Canaria to Lanzarote and back in the same day, it can also be quite cheap if you avoid peak times! I left Las Palmas at Midday, and returned early evening having had my meeting, and the whole thing…

Bohemia Suites & Spa, Playa del Inglés

We were on holiday in Crete when we met Alex, who is a hotel promoter. When we told him we lived in The Canary Islands, he said: “You MUST go and stay at Bohemia Suites & Spa in Gran Canaria – you’ll love it!” We rarely pass up strong personal recommendations, so we booked a two night stay at the hotel almost as soon as we returned from Crete. Alex had told us that there had been a huge investment…

Samsara Fusion Restaurant, Maspalomas

Oh my goodness! This was an absolute cracker! We were recommended to Samsara by Alex Bramwell, who runs Gran Canaria Info and what a recommendation it turned out to be! Samsara describes itself as an “Asian fusion” restaurant. It’s located in Maspalomas, which is the slightly more upmarket resort next to Playa del Inglés in Gran Canaria. It’s very large, but despite that booking is essential. The whole place is a feast for the eyes from the moment you arrive.…
