Playa de las Americas Holidays
of a pint £2.35
When: Join the throng of the crowds in June through to August – there’s no point in going to a party centre when there are no parties going on, is there?
Where: Stay near the bar-lined seafront so you can make friends with that exciting group you spotted earlier in the day and smile in the knowledge that when they return home, you’ll always be that ‘so and so’ who was just ‘so cool’ from their unforgettable holiday to Playa de las Americas.
Why: Playa de las Americas attracts those looking for nothing but a good time, and if that suits you (let’s be honest – who wouldn’t that suit?), this is the place to be.
When: June to August of course! Get down and dance with the rest of Britain’s groups and revel in the fact that you guys are now too cool for even Ibiza!
Where: Stay on the beachfront so you don’t have far to stroll to the beaches or bars – less in taxi fares means more money to spend on drinks, doesn’t it? You’ll also be in a great location for day trips to Sian Park or the Monkey Park.
Why: You’ve seen the Balearic Islands through to the bitter end, and now the new Spanish islands are in town. That’s right, the Canaries have arrived and their king? Well, that’s Tenerife. And what’s the king’s most prized possession? You’ve guessed it – Playa de las Americas!
When: Enjoy the privacy to gaze sickeningly sweetly into each other’s eyes and enjoy a getaway in either May or September. The beaches will be less packed and you won’t be disturbed in the late hours while ... you know ... you’re trying to focus on each other.
Where: Stay towards the north of Playa de las Americas so you can split your time between here and Costa Adeje. The romance in the air is thicker there, plus you may get to rub shoulders with a hot celebrity or two! (Shhh, don’t let on that that’s secretly why you want to holiday here!)
Why: Although Costa Adeje is more suited for a romantic break, you can’t deny that Playa de las Americas is oozing in atmosphere. If you want to mix in a few wild nights out with some romantic boat trips and intimate dinners, then you won’t go too far wrong with a holiday here.
When: Try to avoid the flock of party goers and perhaps treat you kids to an Easter getaway. You’ll get the pick of the sands and there won’t be such long queues at Sian Park – perfect!
Where: Well, ideally we’d say forget about Playa de las Americas and book a hotel in Los Cristianos. But, if your mind’s made up, why not book a spa hotel that sits on the beach? You’ll have many amenities around you so you won’t have to brave the throng of the crowd at night, and you’ll only have a short skip to the sea.
Why: As mentioned earlier, Playa de las Americas isn’t the most family-friendly of Tenerife resorts – Los Cristianos is your best bet for that. That being said, if the little ones fancy embarking on a whale or dolphin spotting trip – well, Playa de las Americas is the place to be!
