Media Player Los Gigantes!

OK, Dolly Diver has been caught out, you’ve noticed, and people are asking why there isn’t much news at the moment on It’s a compliment to know that there are so many of you keeping in touch with what’s going on around here.

Dolly is struggling to keep up with the news at the moment because she has had to blow the dust off her diving instructor cap and dive back into action to take over the running of the Los Gigantes Diving Centre.

The Dive Centre is celebrating its 20th anniversary of being in her family so they’ve some special deals lined up. Those of you who may be interested check out special deals on their web site, Local divers pop in to see us for a chat as we have some special deals for you as well.

In a bid to beat this awful recession we are preparing to move Built Computers/Canaries Wireless to the local next to the Dive Centre in Los Gigantes. It’s a tremendous task and there aren’t enough hours in the day. The new office/shop will be open very soon after the Easter break (the date will be announced on the message board). You will still be able to contact us on 922 862713.

The dive centre and our new office/shop is located on Los Gigantes Marina inside the marina arcade, the entrance is next to restaurant Stella Marina (formerly Bella Napoli).
We are aware that parking can be a problem so we will be offering our clients a collection and drop off service for computer repairs. Canaries wireless will continue to operate as normal, and clients having difficulty signing up on line will be able to get tech support at the new office.

Dolly will still find time to make sure you are all playing nicely on the forum and important items of news will be reported.
