We're home from our weeks holiday in Tenerife, and what a brilliant week it was! Although it was a totally different experience than last year's holiday! Holidaying with a toddler is a whole different ball game to holidaying with a 6 month old.
I'm so glad my mum, step-dad and brother were there too but in hindsight we should have driven down to my mums and caught the plane with them. I shall be sharing some tips of my holiday experience in a post later in the week but I can tell you now that if your child is anything like mine, no matter how many Peppa Pig toys you buy them in the airport if they want to roam up and down the aisle and not sleep-they will!
We stayed in the Golf del Sur at the Cordial Golf Plaza, which for what we paid was fantastic. Due to a deal at the time of booking we were bumped up to half-board and our room was a lot bigger than I expected, complete with a kitchenette and living area. The food was great and Ava loved the separate baby pool.
It's within walking distance to small shops and restaurants and only a 15-20 minute bus ride to the bright lights of Los Cristianos & Playas de las Americas.
Most of our days were spent lounging by the pool.
But we did venture out to the beach in Playas de las Americas, Ava's first beach experience. She loved it!
Nathan and I also returned to Playas de las Americas alone one evening and enjoyed cocktails and a lovely meal at Tai-Pan, a Chinese restaurant.
We also enjoyed some family nights out.
We also spent the day at Siam Park. An amazing water park which I highly recommend.
It's fantastic but I'd advise to go towards the end of your holiday as you're in the sun all day.
I can't believe how quickly the week has gone by. They do say time flies when you're having fun. My mum, step-dad and brother have stayed on for an extra week but I'm glad that we left when we did as yesterday they released a weather warning of very high temperatures coming up.
I only have two things left to do now, try and maintain my tan and shift the holiday weight. Oh and the mountain of washing!
Are you planning a holiday this year?
