Hotel Information

The conference will be held in the 4-star Hotel Playa de la Arena, in the South of Tenerife, where we have negotiated a block booking at special rates. These rates are given to us assuming that all participants stay at the hotel, so you cannot attend the conference and stay somewhere else (for instance, in another hotel you bought as part of a package deal).

This magnificent 4 star hotel was opened in April 2000 and is located on the incomparable setting of the Santiago del Teide coast, right opposite a charming black sand beach “Playa la Arena”, with the amazing Los Gigantes cliffs in the background rising some 1600 ft from the ocean. It offers spectacular views over the sea and the island of La Gomera.

Room facilities: Full bathroom, balcony, air conditioning, telephone, piped music, mini bar, satellite TV, individual safe and a hair dryer in the bathroom.

Hotel Services: The hotel has an impressive marble entrance hall, decorated with a large number of plants. There are spacious lounges, a magnificent sub-tropical garden and two large swimming pools for adults and one with a slide for the children. There is a tennis court, mini golf, petanque, children’s playground, hairdressing salon, two bars, a main dining room with show cooking and a pool bar in the garden, for lunch. Free wireless internet access in the entrance hall area only (around the Piano Bar).

Note: Please bear in mind that to attend lunch and dinner at any Spanish hotel you are not allowed to wear shorts.
