As you might have noticed and followed, earthTV used the chance of our New Year’s Eve special to go live with a new permanent “The World Live” streaming system, and they are now able to connect external live cameras into the earthTV program as a new offering to digital platforms.
The NYE special was a success and has considerably extended the reach in non-TV media. For your reference here are the basic results of the project:
– earthTV streamed 3 different streams for 24 hours (English, German and Spanish)
– this included live cameras from 30 countries with viewers from 111 countries
– the stream reached 9.13m Facebook users and was watched 2.21m times
– 91k people liked and commented on the stream
– 69,809 hours of the content was watched online
As an earthTV partner in Tenerife we would like to take the opportunity to congratulate them for this initiative and look forward to continuing this great working relationship!

This is the third time we have visited the Florasol and it only gets better! Under new management this last year it now has better reception service and much improved wifi in all rooms. The apartments are roomy with generous private balconies complete with loungers and dining table and chairs, and new flatscreen tvs with hdmi input option. The pool is small but quite big enough for a cooling dip and has more loungers around it as well as pretty gardens. The location is a pleasant fifteen minute walk (downhill) to the busy town centre shops and restaurants- you can do much of it through Tauro Park if you check a map.
When we come in the winter, the gated hotel is largely populated with retired sun-seeking German couples who are very easy company. No noisy children or boisterous types. It is perfectly possible to accommodate a family of four comfortably but it works very well for older people and I would hope it continues to fill this particular niche now the apartments are being upgraded this year. Improved shower and kitchen facilities address the two main areas of weakness in the past and the show apartment we saw was a sensible enhancement of the available space with a new wet room rain shower and a four ring halogen hob in the kitchen.
Although reception is only open in the morning, the new management is the nearby Hotel Tigaiga and we checked in there when we arrived in the afternoon. All the staff are highly competent, poly lingual and very helpful as are the restaurant staff present for the excellent breakfasts they offer. Easy parking is possible just outside the apartments.

The Spanish Christmas Lottery is more than just a lottery, in Spain it is an integral part of the pre-Christmas tradition. It is an event that people are waiting for with anticipation. Participation in the Christmas lottery is a social event. According to studies, more than 90% of the Spanish population participate in the lotery.
Today’s draw of the lottery numbers of the Christmas lottery is also a cause of a tiny joy for those Tigaiga guests, who bought a lot in our vintage car tour to Tigaiga there!

For more than 20 years, Tigaiga has been awarded !

Secondly the hotels need to achieve an average guest satisfaction value of 8 out of 10 for the environmental question ‘How do you rate the hotels measures to preserve the environment’.
