Hi All ive been reading this page on and off to see whats going on. After living here for 14 years I have noticed the gradual decline of tourism, and the closing of various bars, restaurants, resorts, its very sad.
The locals here are dependent on tourism for work, and I must admit some of them need a lesson in communication. I dont know what happened to "Tenerife amable" Friendly Tenerife, it seems to have fallen away.
However the price of flights, alongside the price of apartments, isnt doing us any favours either. Some of the Tour companies are offering all inclusive for half the price !
YES ! We need more life in this area, more bars catering for families, more entertainment, but firstly we need the tourists !!!
Maybe the Tenerife Cabildo should take a new look once again at the tourism plans, and push the canary islands once again.
We will all be out of jobs, if there are no sales, no tourists, but it needs to start here with the Tourism industry whipping the personal into shape, training them on customer relations, thats what counts, thats what makes people remember your bar,restaurant, hotel.
I start work on monday in Las Americas !!!
