My general opinion of the holiday

Sweaty, we walked a lot (rolled) and it was 30+C all the time. Mostly very accessible place, lots of walkways in the city, buses had ramps (deep thou) and trams we level to ground and free. Undergroun was mostly ok but you have to check from map which station has elevator cos not every has.

My general opinion of the holiday

This is a brilliant city/beach for wheelchair users-the beach is much more accessible than any other beach I have seen with boardwalks leading to the sea (they stop about 10 m from the edge of the sea). In the summer they even run a program to help people with disabilities into the sea.
there are a lot of accessible toilets-even in places where you would not expect-there are dropped curbs everywhere, even in the old town-although there are not as many here obviously!

I would fully recommend this city/beach as a destination for all wheelchair travellers

My general opinion of the holiday

For a winter break, this year, ‘twas my belief
We’d benefit from visiting Tenerife.
So in order to chase away the winter blues
We stayed for ten days in Puerto de la Cruz.
The H10 Tenerife Playa has excellent views
And it’s not far to one of my favourite zoos.
The playa/strand/plage is easy to reach.
Just across the road - a black volcanic beach.
The weather, was warm and windy, I remember
Why we visit Canary Islands in November.
For half board, there’s a very good restaurant
Both the standard of food and self-service excellent.
Tables were cleared and food stocks maintained
Efficiently by staff. By me, weight was gained.
The restaurant itself well maintained, very clean,
Has certificates for food handling hygiene.
There was bacon for breakfast – I was thrilled to bits!
(The narrow lift to get there my wheelchair just fits.)
To sell bottled water or combat pollution
The tap water’s dilute hypochlorite solution.
The usual “toaster” just slightly warms bread.
The food is good, including bacon, as I’ve said.
At dinner, there’s a very good choice of dishes
With a fair bit of pork to suit some people’s wishes.
It may be the milk, or it may be the water
But tea abroad does not taste like it oughter.
So when abroad, I tend not to drink tea
And this hotel provides excellent coffee.
So what is four star? – the food and facilities,
Entertainment to suit most people’s proclivities.
The floor show is billed here to start at ten
But it never does so, because this is when
We learn who came first, second and third
At ping pong, archery or shuffleboard.
The degree of excitement in support of this cause
May be gleaned from the paucity of our applause.
Among the floor shows there was even a folklore one
As well as one “popular culture” oxymoron.
(My favourites were the gymnastic acts
Displaying strength and skills the audience lacks.)
Each guest has a token which they may exchange
For a pool towel (if lost, fifteen Euros of change).
This limits the number of sun beds reserved.
A system which most Europeans deserve.
I did not investigate the hotel’s tenth floor
Where nudists gather-(most guests should wear more).
It’s a short walk to Plaza Reyes Catolicos
From where the free land train to Loro Parque goes.
For fellow wheelchair users, access is good
In the hotel and resort, it should be understood
There are hills; where there’s “up” there is “down”.
The promenade may be flat- not so the town.
Near the hotel is the town’s stylish Lido with sculpture
By Caesar Manrique – Canarian culture.
There are plenty of shops and bars, restaurants
That cater for what a tourist wants.

My general opinion of the holiday

Barcelona is very disabled friendly. All buses and 2/3 of metro stations are accessible. Pavements are flat concrete and really comfortable to ride on my Luggie mobility scooter. Getting in to the Sagrada Familia it is actually a benefit to be disabled as you circumvent the endless queues. We've visited several times and managed without a car using the Luggie to get around. We love the art nouveau architecture and most of the venues have been made v disabled accessible. Hospital San Pau has been recently renovated is fab and v accessible with disabled loos etc.
