Los Gigantes decline 


Dear Editor,


My wife and myself and two friends have recently spent weekends away in Puerto de la Cruz and Golf del Sur. Whilst in Puerto de la Cruz we were very impressed with the refurbished thoroughfares, it was an absolute pleasure to browse the sea front, Harbour and shops without having to overstep dodgy pavements dog mess and other hurdles. The shops are well looked after and inviting and consequently the streets were busy. Fast forward to our weekend on Golf del Sur, where we visited Los Abrigos and what wonderful surprise, again the pavements were in top class condition as were the steps to the harbour and water front. Our walk along the front was relaxing and inspiring.

How very different to the place we have called home for the past 28 years. Los Gigantes with its broken pavements, broken steps in the plaza, closed down businesses allowed to fall into disrepair and the sad decline of a once BEAUTIFUL PARADISE which should now be called paradise lost. This once wonderful jewel in Tenerife Crown needs a facelift to bring it up to the standards of other parts of the island. Why is the money not being spent on this village? What are our taxes being spent on? Are we the only people who would love to see Los Gigantes returned to its past glory when it was THE place to live? We hope so and hope the local council take note. We will definitely take note when it comes to voting time.
