If you ever went to the beach, you would have noticed that in Los Gigantes there is no elevated position and at Playa de la Arena they are almost never perched on their elevated position, they merely march up and down annoying everybody with their incessant whistling. I certainly do recognize the importance of competent lifeguards. I just wish we had a few. By the way, have you noticed how often the local lifeguards stop looking at the sea while they peddle the lounge chairs and brollies? And in Los Gigantes, they often leave the beach unattended while they are no doubt saving lives elsewhere. Also, the lifeguards have never put their lives at risk to save my life. They have never needed to save my life. So I can't imagine what idiots Davymar is talking about. I can't help noticing that whenever I make a specific point regarding the the inadequacy of the lifeguard service,rather than posing an intelligent response. all I see is name calling. Perusing other topics on this site, I can see that that members of this forum seem to be very proficient at name calling.

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
