Shuttle transfers from LPA Las Palmas airport to hotel in Las Palmas?

Hi all!

We'll be staying at AC Gran Canaria hotel and wondered if I should pre-book transfers to save money on taxis?

Has anyone used shuttle buses through companies like Resorthoppa.com and lowcosttravelextras and are they reliable, especially for return journey to airport to be on time for early morning flight? And would they stop at our hotel, address: C/ Eduardo Benot 3, 35007 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

Thank you!

Gran Canaria  (2 Answers)

Hi
Can anyone give their experience/opinion about which resort is the best for 2 adults travelling to Gran Canaria with no kids? We're thinking of going beginning of March 2011, for about a week for some winter sun and we would preferably like to go self catering and not be in close proximity to holiday makers with children! We don't want a very quiet resort and we don't want anything too mad either. A few bars and restaurants with a bit of culture thrown in and a beach and spas nearby will do. Any suggestions/reviews welcome.
Thanks

Find a room near New Year & tips for car rental appreciated :)

Hi everybody!!

My boyfriend and I are visiting Gran Canaria for the New Year holidays from 26/12 to 2/01. We have already booked a room to stay from the 30th to the 2nd.
For the first 4 nights, we tried to find local hosts through couchsurfing.com, unfortunately, because of the holidays, a lot of people are away. And we're not quite sure in which area is the best (convenient) to find a place to stay. Any advices will be very much appreciated!!

And any tips about car rental are also welcomed!!

Thanks in advance!!

Snow cheers from Belgium,
Amy
