Just returned from staying in Sansofe for 10 weeks in the complex next to the new pathway what a waste of money.

By the pace they are going it might be finished this year, they are now in the process of building up the cliffs  with rocks and cement
unhappy, i find it so strange that you have just spent 10 weeks in our area, yet have so many negative things to add to this whole site.  why do you still come back to visit us? you seem to come over many times.

janey as you said we have been coming many times in fact the first time was when in LG there was just the Hotel & 2 Villas & we can say hand on heart the jewel of the area was the bay which should have been turned into a 6* resort not buildings half completed the cliff ripped down & left for years.

A car park built and again left for years unused and they are still building more properties that will be left empty for years again

This council since the old Mayor died are as bent as a 9 bob note they have ruined a fantastic area they are even now spending money on stupid things but they are not bothered about repairing the awful pavements, stop the car hire companies parking there cars on the roads when they are not rented.

We could go on & on but you would get bored & the reason we keep coming back, we have a lot of friends there and like most people it is always nice to have the sun on your back

The pavement works by Tamara look awful. The wall with the rendering that was all falling off hasn't been done.  Nothing at all is happening where the Cristal apartments are supposed to be going.

I see the Council standard of work has not improved, as for Cristal that's the 5000 deposit gone then most likely waiting for more funds, would not touch it with a barge pole until it's completed.

They're trying to flog aqua suites up there too but absolutely nothings happening. Btw, the friendly dolphin has been taken over by KV gourmet so theyve got two places next to each other now. The new Italian has exactly the same menu as it's previous incarnation, rincon de Antonia.

But this is supposed to be good for the 5* Island that the Government want I know of at least 4 restaurants that are now owned by the Chinese and usually empty and 2 more that are up for sale.

It seems that the West Coast of the Island, they could not care about any more, as long as they can build AI Hotels and get the taxes from them.

Chinese everywhere, waiting tables from Fanabe to Pdla, shops everywhere and hordes of their children, working as chefs in kitchens that supposedly serve authentic Canarian food all actually done by the Chinese. Bizarre.

Bradley Walsh out here at the moment staying at Ababa and filming two episodes of Dr Who at Teide. The crew are staying at barcelo Santiago.

I have a live webcam of the harbour, the lido & Tamara all looks very quite, the lido is totally empty & looks like an unfinished building site.

But the weather looks good.

So slow like the plaza - 2 years, what a joke and embarrassment!
When the local council does works takes forever. When it's contractors it is done over night!

I walk past these road works every day and the progress is certainly not slow.  There are several teams of men working every day from 07:30 until 16:30 Monday - Friday.   It's starting to get hot now and many of them are doing very heavy work with no shade laying stone tiles on the new pavements and building new walls.  I'm not sure how long the work will take but it certainly won't be finished this year, but one thing for sure it is certainly going to improve the look of Los Gigantes when it is finished.
