Gran Canaria, situated 210 kilometres from the West Coast of Africa is an island of contrast and of blond sandy beaches. The cool air from the Atlantic and the heat of the South, combine a unique climate, which would appeal to any holidaymaker.

Dinner was top class, one can choose from fillet of beef to rabbit and also a range of fish. Lots to choose too for the vegetarians. A kids corner was set up with spaghetti, pizza, chicken nuggets, usual children’s choice. The mini club really appealed to my two, with Carlos as the main mascot, he entertained from morning till night. We were lucky enough to celebrate his birthday, with cakes, sweets and games galore.
We decided to embark on a couple of excursions through our local Sunway representative, who was most helpful. As there was a lot to choose from, we only had a week so could only pick a select few. The first was Palmitos Park, an oasis of birds, animals and plants, as well as a butterfly and orchid garden with regular dolphin and birds of prey displays. The first show was of the birds of prey, pretty spectacular it was too, with falcons soaring through the sky before swooping to take a treat from their trainer. After strolling for some time through the park, we watched a dolphin show. These beautiful mammals like to display the skills that they have learned and you can’t help but show such admiration towards them. After a long and tiring but satisfactory day we headed back to our five star hotel, for some five star treatment. Two days later we embarked on another excursion, this time to Aqualand, for some wet and wild fun.
