Hello USSR

  • There seems to be a lot of Russian tourists in the village, guess most are staying at Royal Sun - how long will it be until there are Russian Restaurants and shops selling Russian merchandise ?

    Been a few times up to the RS - looks smart again - thank goodness
    I wanted to be the Cincinnati Kid - but couldn't spell it

  • The Russians have been in our resort for at least the last 5 years they are mostly drunk, rude & arrogant, we thought the Germans were bad they are angles compared to them and this is the voice of experience

    As for the Royal Sun we ate lunch there in January,  first time we had ever eaten a club sandwich with Chicken paste, "perhaps its a Russian delicacy" ,they we wont see us there again.

    This is obviously the Tenerife Government and Touristic Organizations idea of a  5 STAR MODEL spend a few Euro and it will bring work for the Construction Industry and lower the unemployment, Its a pity the receptionist is Russian along with some of the workers and they are not all Tenerifans.

  • From our experience last Xmas/New Year of the Russians, they badly need lessons in how to behave in restaurants and bars.
    We observed them being rude to waiters and generally obnoxious to anyone who wasn't in their party.
    However I have also seen this behaviour in Brits and Germans but somehow it seemed less aggressive than the way these people behaved. Please and thankyou needs to be taught.

  • This information is strictly on a "need to know basis" - I have just had a chat with, and taken a snap of, the new owner of a upmarket tea and scones shop shortly to be opened in downtown Los Gigantes



    His name is Ivor Hardmeat - and a nicer bloke you couldn't wish to meet (or meat) - his catering background  is based on being chief chef in the notorious but well know Siberian Prison "Camp 7" - where he honed his knife sharpening skills.

    Evidently his new establishment is currently being up graded - there will be outside seating but you will need to provide your own cups and saucers, tea bags and hot water.

    Cakes and other treats are provided by his dear wife - she didn't want her photo taken ! - and I wasn't about to argue

    So when you are next in the village and the tea shop is open please make sure you pop in and say hello to Ivor
