Yes, we have booked Sombrero direct, although it was a few years back, we now book a private pad and a flight separately.

Mr Cartman , you really are quite arrogant. May I suggest that each beach, wherever it is , has it's own problems peculiar to that beach. If you are a regular here you will know that being in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean the sea may appear to be flat calm and then from nowhere you will get a huge breaker. The lifeguard from an elevated position can see this coming. I don't know about limited vocabularies I would suggest limited mentality if you cannot see the benefit of lifeguards.

I am absolutely amazed that I am the only person viewing this website who has actually visited hundreds of beaches with competent lifeguards. I can assure you that the local lifeguards are both incompetent and rude. Could one of you extremely wise members please explain why the local lifeguards keep their rescue  jetskis permanently parked in Los Gigantes harbour , far away from where they might do some good. Every competent lifeguard force keeps their rescue boats on the shoreline where they might be used to help people who get in trouble. Of course, if you don't let people in the water, you probably don't need rescue boats. One time I actually asked a local lifeguard why they had a red flag up when the ocean was as calm as a lake. With a puzzled look he replied that as the beach had eroded, there were rocks on the seabed and people might get hurt.I assume you all would agree that the possibility of a stubbed toe certainly warrants a red flag. Is there some rule on this site that all replies to posts must include the calling someone "stupid" or am I afflicted with only receiving replies from folks with limited vocabularies and no experience on well run beach resorts

Kids love to clamber over rocks. Sometimes they fall down.The rocks I am referring to are on the ground. It is impossible to fall off them into the sea. A scraped knee or twisted ankle are about the worst that could happen The lifeguards are there to assist people not to close down the ocean every time a two foot wave appears. the point is not just safety, it is safety at what price. They could permanently close all the the beaches and then  everybody would be even safer. And we all know how dangerous wet roads are. Why don't they close all the roads when it starts to drizzle. Of course you are correct, you could drown in an inch of water. I'm sure there must be a solution for that. And once again, the use of the term "stupid." Is it possible  for the wise men and women in this forum to disagree without resorting to insults?
