All good things come to an end…

If you’ve seen the Facebook page recently you’ll know that we’ve been running a competition called The Big £300k Giveaway, where we had a staggering £300k of hotel vouchers to give away to our Facebook fans. All fans were entitled to a voucher- they just had to enter using the £300k giveaway tab on the page. However, it wasn’t that easy- we needed to reach 30,000 fans before the end of November in order for fans to receive their voucher.

And guess what? We did it!

Thanks to all your hard work, we hit 30,000 fans at 7pm on 22nd November 2011. This is a huge achievement and we’re really proud of our Facebook fans for making it happen. We really appreciate all the encouraging comments you left us during the competition (we read all of them!) and for all the sharing you did.

What next?

The rules of the competition stated that entrance closed as soon as we hit 30,000 fans, so if you entered the £300k giveaway you will soon be receiving your voucher to the email address given to us! Keep checking your inbox- this should arrive soon! The voucher amounts are all allocated at random… will you be lucky enough to receive a £250 voucher? If you are, make sure you tell us about it! We’d love to find out where you plan on going away!

Our suggestions for some great hotel breaks:

I’ve picked out some of my favourite hotels that I’d recommend for a sunny trip to the Canaries- why not check these out? They all have great rates to start with, so imagine how much cheaper they’ll be with your money off voucher!

Rubimar Suites, Playa Blanca

With a huge swimming pool, jacuzzi, children’s play area, gardens and and fitness suite, this hotel is fun for all the family. As if that isn’t enough to tempt you into staying on resort for the duration of your holiday, it’s also really close to the busy Rubicon Marina, where you can find local delicacies and crafts at the twice weekly market. Make sure you take a trip on the Rubicat, a luxury catamaran that will take you to Papagayo, all whilst you enjoy jet skiing, snorkling or simply sun yourself on the deck This area is chic and stylish, and definitely a must-see part of Playa Blanca.

Globales Tamaimo Tropical Aparthotel, Los Gigantes

Wow, where to start with this hotel!? This is one for active holiday goers who  don’t want to sit still by the pool all day with loads of sports activities for you to try out- mini golf, tennis, and aerobics to name just a few. There’s also a jacuzzi and swimming pool, and the hillside locations means your legs will be looking really toned by the end of your trip!

The Columbus, Playa De Las Americas

The Columbus is one of those brilliant family  hotels where you could spend your holiday in the resort without even realising! Why not spend a day relaxing in the sun bathing area by the pool and jacuzzi, where the poolside bar will keep you refreshed. The video and games room provides entertainment for your little-ones while you enjoy the disco and piano bar. Evening dining is taken seriously by this hotel, with loads of choice at the international buffet restaurant.

Plaza Palmeras, Puerto Del Carmen

For those of you that like to do your own cooking, try the self catering Plaza Palmeras for a stay in apartments with all the modern amenities you need right next to an on site supermarket. Situated 200m from the beach, this is perfect for those who want to enjoy the sun sea and sand, but can also relax in the main pool whilst the kids play in the childrens’ pool. Puerto Del Carmen is one of Lanzarote’s busiest tourist resorts, so you can also spend a day shopping  if you need a break from the beach or enjoy one of the town’s many restaurants.

Costa Tropical, Fuerteventura

Party lovers, look no further. The Costa Tropical will cater to all of your disco dancing needs with themed nights in the restaurants, a mini club and some brilliant all inclusive deals. Spend your days lounging by the enormous adult pool, splashing around with the kids in the childrens’  pool or enjoying the vast sports facilities such as football pitch, gym and tennis court.
