  • When is there going to be more input into this site as it has gone right down in terms of interest.Theres hardly anything written anymore,is there no more news in Los Gigantes? ??

    Ive been reading this site from the U.K for years & have noticed its steady decline.
    I think it needs to be taken over by a company that wants to tell the news of such a beautiful place!!!

    Please,lets have some interest in this site!!

  • Oh dear please don't shoot the messenger! You want items of more interest?  Well how about you start some then?  They can only produce what us folk input so let's get started shall we?  At this moment, I personally don't have much I can offer but I am sure you will have some interesting topic to share with us all.

  • Lack of interest!!!!!!  Statistics of this site do not indicate lack of interest.  In fact they are higher than ever, probably due to the fact that tourism is up because of the problem in Egypt, Tunisia etc.

    We have asked everyone to send us stories or a write up of their experiences. Therefore  news snippets are reported on the forum by tourists and residents of the area.  As well as as much information as possible about what is going on in the area posted on our "What's on locally" page.

    Any press releases I receive from the Ayuntamiento which are of interest to the English residents and tourists are posted on this site.  We do not post articles if they do not concern this area.

    You have to remember Los Gigantes - El Varadero is a small area and it certainly would not be feasible to employ a reporter (unless a nice retired person volunteered - HINT HINT)  I'm afraid I need a full time job to keep the wolves from the door.

    Please everyone send in any articles or experiences to share with others.

    Thank you.

  • Thanks for your apology but certainly no offence taken. As Dolly says, there is a lot reported on and how she does it all plus run a separate business is something I often wonder about - what's that saying? if you want something doing ask a busy woman?? I rest my case, well done Dolly and long may you reign.

  • Thank you Angie, it's nice to be appreciated.

    We do have a reply, as we promised, from Steve Gerald regarding the Norovirus, sewerage etc.  Just clarifying a couple of points to make sure the facts are correct before we post it.

  • Raymond  - Your post has been deleted.

    You know who I am but I have no idea who you are and I am not prepared to have a public argument with an anonymous person.

    If you would like to volunteer and spend the time needed to do what you would like to see on this web site then I will gladly have a chat with you.


    Regards DD

  • I just wanted to say that I very much appreciate the effort put in by Dolly. This website has been invaluable to me both as a tourist and an owner.

    It is the easiest thing in the world to criticise, another thing entirely to contribute your time
