    I've never been sorry, but I know friends who have stayed in Los Cristianos and they have loved it. I think it depends on where you are how far the walk is into the main area where all the bars and nightlife is :D

    Same here, one of my friends loves Los Cristianos. It's close enough to Las Americas if you want to go there, but far enough away so you don't get the drunkards :)

    Its very nice. Just be sure to avoid the 'street sellers' unless you want something!
    Get a taxi over to the waterpark one day, they have a dolphin show!

    Thanks have heard there was a good Dolphin show. My 15 year old son will have to keep clear of the "sellers" then. As i am sure that is one way he will want to offload his euro's. Nuff said:lol:

    Loro Park is quite nice too. You can get a bus there from downtown, not sure where. Or again, get a taxi.

    The sellers arent too bad, but if you stop to even look, they'll have a carrier bag full of cheap wallets in your hand and they'll be asking you for cash!

    I've been twice and loved both times. Once to Los Cristianos and the other Playa del las americas.
    I love the Canary islands ( Apart from Lanzagrote!!!)
    Loro park is really cool ( I have pics somewhere). I remember going to an amazing water park ( First I'd ever been too.. doesn't come close to the FL ones) it had a giant Octopus slide, a tap with pump... ohh they were both fab holidays.

    You'll have a great time!!
