This isn't an easy topic to cover but should be something the island is promoting more. It's a fantastic way for a small (or larger) group to stay in luxury and have plenty of space and ameneties at their disposal. Instead the Canarian government are out on this one trying to decide what's legal or not. Currently all villas built outside of tourist resorts can be rented out daily or weekly as long as the owner has applied to do so and has abided by various checks and conditions. So rural villas are a go and there's plenty of them but villas in and around the resorts are still being considered, though currently there's quite a nice choice for you to be looking at.
Spain may have the best and widest range of wines at low prices, with excellent quality. Reasons abound. The country has the largest expanse of vineyards in the world and ranks among the three largest producers, with areas such as the central plateau, a veritable sea of vines.
So the week ended with crazy weather. On 8th August during the morning we had torrential rain. It never rains in August... well it does now. Not just regular rain but a thunder storm with over 200 lightning bolts during the day in the south of the island where the rain reached 11 litres per meter square during the day until 17:00. By the afternoon the sun was out and it was over 30C, everyone back on the beach again. The heat continues over the weekend with a "calima" = hot temperatures as a sand storm drifts over the south of the island.
I was going to do a review on the different gyms around Maspalomas & Playa del Ingles and let you decide where to go but after their refurb in January & February 2015 the "Ozone Boutique Gym" doesn't really have any competition. For those of us living here looking for cheap monthly plans then yes, there's a couple more to consider but none as complete or advanced as this one.
