20 years ago the area of Los Gigantes was known as the 'posh end' and Guia de Isora was thought to be really down market. Gawd, how times have changed!! Now the premier resorts in this area are Playa San Juan with its beach, plus 5-star hotel, and Alcala with its promenade walkway and 5-star hotel. Los Gigantes has one four star hotel and there are three more on the coast in Santiago del Teide. The whole area looks tired and run down. Concenasa in Los Gigantes for example, plus empty retail locales. Dead cacti in the planters in Calle Hibisco - sorry, the grass weeds are thriving. Street lights that don't come on until 21.30 - plenty of time for a mugging or two-then? Cllr Mc Kenna is the only Councillor on the Ayuntamiento not to receive any remuneration - and he is the only non-Spanish Councillor!! So, in a nutshell, the Alcade appears not to give a s*** about Los Gigantes, Peurto de Santiago and Playa de Arena as he knows there are more votes - therefore, his power - in the non-touristic areas of his Ayuntamiento?s area, e.g. Tamaimo, Arguayo, Valle Ariba etc. So, you ex-pats reading this, iif you care about Los Gigantes register on the Empadronamiento at the Town Hall in Playa de la Arena so next time there are elections you can vote for anyone other than the current Alcalde Snr Ramos Gorin. YOUR VOTE IS A DEMOCRATIC RIGHT.
