    We played 2 rooms last visit and they are amongst the best quality we have played. Atmospheric with diverse puzzles to work through, and not all about codes and padlocks as some can be. Game hosts provide just enough hints to keep you going without removing the challenge.

    Fabulous instructor on a lovely place. Gio was absolutely fantastic with our ten year old daughter who had her first experience on a surf board. After this she is really hooked and is planning how to get here soon again for more surfing. ❤️

    Amazing surf school in Tenerife. The teacher Francesco was very funny and great at teaching us. You can book the lessons online super easily, they provide everything you need and they take photos of you while surfing so that then you can see what you did well or wrong. At the end of the lesson you can also enjoy some tea and biscuits while looking at the photos. They even have a shower inside the shop. The new surf shop they have is full of nice hoodies and personalized surf gadgets. It’s our second time coming here, and we came again to the same surf school. Great experience!

    We were very impressed with the expedition on the Blue Jack. From the moment we arrived at the pier, we felt comfortable and relaxed. A note here...if you are driving, leave extra time for some searching for parking. We were booked for 1pm, which is probably the busiest time in town and had to park a 25 minute walk away. No ones fault, just a heads up.
    We were greeted warmly, and felt like part of the family. Alex is a very competent sailor, and he makes it easy to relax and enjoy your trip. His approach to seeing both the whales and dolphins is a model of respect for the animals in their environment. He was never aggressive toward finding them, instead he got to an area and we just drifted. magically they appeared. There were other monster boats that were plowing through the sea to find them, which naturally scared them off.
    The small cove we anchored in was lovely for a nice lunch and swim.
    As with all good things, we were back at the dock exactly on time. Another lesson in seamanship, as we slid back into the dock without a bump.

    I would highly recommend doing a private lesson with Fred! He is so passionate and knowledgeable and made us feel very safe. My husband and I had the best day time and can't wait to go back!

    I went to surf school K16 and took a few lessons, mostly with Joel. I am a total beginner and never did any similar sports, but was able to surf and change directions in only a few lessons (approx. one week) and in not the best wave conditions. He is a great instructor, very detailed with a lot of knowledge and great at explaining and correcting, but also makes a very fun atmosphere with good mood and jokes, and keeps you safe in the ocean. I also met the other instructors and they all have a lot of knowledge and know how to pass it on, everyone who took lessons improved a lot in a short time. Overall I would really recommend this school, they have friendly staff with a lot of knowledge, good system of lessons and booking, good price and equipment, they will help you with pretty much everything and anything you can think of, and they have a great atmosphere that is welcoming to all. I will definitely come back, so see you next year💪🏻🌊

    Excellent bike hire. Friendly service. Just be aware that no insurance is offered and bring a decent lock as the ones provided may as well be made of string!

    Amazing experience. Very friendly and knowlegable staff. Groups arent big so you get individual attention so you can learn better and progress quicker with the trainers supervision and tips.

    After an homage to Harry Houdini, look who's coming to Vulcan Hall at the end of October in #Tenerife! Just had a really entertaining evening at #vulcanhalltenerife.com watching Mago Sun, top Spanish TV magician, illusionist and escapologist. A family show (here for a while) with lots of audience participation, both kids and grown-ups. And in a spectacular venue (below the Hard to miss Hard Rock Cafe) with really welcoming helpful staff. Que precioso! #costaadejetenerife #thingstodointenerife #magicshow #yosoytenerife
