Restuarants/bars

  • Just returned from another holiday in Los Gigs and thought  I would like to share my compliments/comments
    We stayed at El Sombrero once again and as usual it was faultless. The guys cant do enough for you and the apartments are very well maintained.
    Some of the restaurants we visited were; El-Pescador (excellent as normal), Arch's (Carvery - Well impressed, beautiful place, staff really nice - deserve the trade), Asturias (Lovely meal), Gran Reserva (Very good also, food and service both great - am sure most them worked in El-Pescador at one time), Chinese opposite El-Sombrero (very good as always), Mirandas (food very good but service slow) Little Italy (Also good service and food)
    Ck's is still the best breakfast in town  - lovely people, closely followed by Richardsons. Also love La Sangria, Moniques, Yates, and Bamboo.
    I dont want to be detremental about anywhere and spent  quite a few nights in The Green Corner (incl New Years eve) where the staff are really nice but what has happened to the place. When we started holidaying in LG about 7 years ago there was 4 guys running the floor constantly and you could hardly find a seat? Changed days.
    Didnt think Los Gigs had quite the same buzz and was as busy as years gone past but had a brilliant time all the same.
    Back to wind and rain!

  • I noticed that you said that you have stayed at El Sombrero. Could you, please, tell me more about that? We are coming to LG in February for the first time and will stay at El Sombrero. Thank you in advance!

  • Of course. This must be the 8/9th time we have stayed there and to be honest would be hard pushed to find somewhere else with so much going for it. If you've not been before, Los Gigantes is quite hilly and a lot of the apartments are high up - they of course have stunning views but I feel would be a trek back and forward constantly. The Sombrero apartments also have beautiful views, are very central to everything, clean, accomodating, well maintained, friendly and as far as I am aware never have any trouble. The two guys that run it are very friendly and nothing seems to be any trouble. Have you had a look at their website? www.el-sombrero.com. I'm jealous - love Los Gigantes.
    Ignore anything Sebastian has to say - he never has anything worthwhile or constructive to say about anything on the boards! He obviously doesnt have anything better to do of an evening!

  • Hi Loste,

    Thoroughly endorse what Scot Lass says about El Sombrero, we will be arriving soon for our 3rd visit in 3 years so that says something. It is not the newest place, we stayed there 25 years ago!!! but it has always been very clean, staff superb, pool chilly!!!! but thats Los Gigs all over. No fleas there!!!!!and not a pit.

    Keep taking the grumpy pills Sebastian :)

    Regards

    John and Anne.

    P.S. Yes will still be taking the Titsa bus from the airport (See previous thread)...we just love a challenge :o

  • Read between the line " we stayed there 25 years ago its clean" what she really means is its old and in dire need of renovation. Still got that high class PINE furniture.

  • Surely we are getting away from the point here, we all wish we had now what we had when we were younger but did not know how to use it correctly????

  • Hi Sebastian,

    Think you put words in your own mouth there. What I said was.

    "It is not the newest place, we stayed there 25 years ago!!! but it has always been very clean"

    I never said it was modern, but we have found it to be a very acceptable place to stay, and (linda) what the heck do we want with a dishwasher and washing machine on a one week stay ??? We do get comfortable beds, crisp white sheets and nice towels changed frequently, the bathroom is ensuite as there are only the 2 of us! and the water runs hot and cold at any time, we have never had to fetch it from anywhere :)

    Regards

    John and Anne ( it is John posting BTW)

  • Maybe Janey and Linda should get together, one could fill the dishwasher and the other could empty it :) :) :)

  • John I'm with you!
    When on holiday I don't need a dishwasher or washing machine. We go on holiday to relax, enjoy and get away from it all - not food shop, cook and do laundry.
    All this nit picking is putting people off from reading the boards let alone posting on them!

  • Dear "Sweatysock Girl",
                                         Sick and tired of hearing its clean and the staff are nice "If its a fleapit" then tell the truth.....According to the BBC we Brits now expect the same standards that the Germans & French have had for years...
