The Problem with Mopping up Sharm el Sheikh Fans

It’s the time of year when we’ve been researching Tenerife hotels in order to pick ones to review for various publications. This research includes checking out reviews on Tripadvisor. During this we’ve noticed a recurring theme running through some recent reviews. Some Tenerife hotels are being marked down by people who had originally planned to visit Sharm el Sheikh but, for reasons we all know, had to have their winter sun break changed to an alternative destination.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
