WATIFY initiative – Hotel Tigaiga

Our hotel has been contacted regarding the second phase of the Watify initiative – an awareness-raising campaign, funded by the European Commission, on digital and technological transformation. The objective of the Watify initiative is to speed up the modernisation of Europe’s industry and to unleash new business opportunities in Europe.

The Watify team has developed brief case studies of a number of SMEs in Europe that have successfully transformed their business or created new products / services using digital technologies and /or Key Enabling Technologies.

The Tigaiga was identified as a good example of a success story having transformed its business by introducing 3D Panorama, Virtual tours and Earth TV. A case study of  our company outlining the challenge addressed, solution applied, transformation process, and results and lessons learned will be published on the European Commission’s website.

Celebrating Tigaiga loyalty!

Señores Irwin from the UK have come to Tenerife for the 25th time. As a sign of gratitude they received flowers and a certificate from CIT Puerto de la Cruz at our small reception with a local wine and nibbles.

“We always come here mainly because of the nice climate, but also because the staff at the Tigaiga is simply great, from the housekeepers to the waiters up to the management!”

Familia Jerrentrup and Familia Kienast were also among the awarded guests; they have been visiting the island for more than 15 years.


Tree planting in the Orotava area

Dear Tigaiga guests!

With your donations you financed the planting of local trees on the 10th of March in the Barranco del Infierno,  Orotava Valley. In doing so, you contributed not only to preservation of the biological diversity and functions of this area, but also to active climate protection. Mixed natural forests are the largest terrestrial CO2 reservoirs and also a habitat for innumerable species.

With growing thanks and sunny greetings!

Familia Enrique Talg & Tigaiga Team

earthTV network

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!

New tripadvisor review for Florasol

January 9th:

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.
