The week before Christmas is usually one of the most stressful (but also wonderful) times of the year: rushing around to buy last minute presents, late night food shopping and non-stop socialising – it’s exhausting, right? Well this year, my family and I decided to do something a little different – jet away to the sun and miss the pre Christmas mad dash!
Our destination of choice was Tenerife, for a few reasons – it’s not too long a flight (around 4 hours), you’re in the same time zone and it’s also still hot in winter – perfect! We stayed at the ‘Melia Jardines Del Teide’ which is a beautiful hotel located in the hills – offering panoramic views over Costa Adeje.
The hotel was excellent for many reasons. The food was lovely – offering a varied selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner – and the service to accompany it was great. The facilities that the hotel offered were also excellent – you could take part in daily yoga classes, gym classes, book a spa trip or simply chill out by one of the three pools.
We booked our holiday with Jet2, and it couldn’t have been any easier! All my family and I had to do was choose our hotel of choice and then pay – Jet2 took care of the rest. This meant that we could sit back, relax and soak up a blissful week of sun before flying home for Christmas!
