There are three main shopping centers around the hotel and Fañabe area. Two of them are located about ten minutes by foot from the hotel; shopping center Plaza del Duque and El Duque, with more exclusive stores. The third and biggest one is called Gran Sur, about fifteen minutes by foot from the hotel.
You can also take a taxi or local bus to other shopping centers; Safari, about ten minutes by taxi from the hotel, where you will find a lot of large and well-known clothes stores and Siam Mall.
The very best shopping is to be found in the capital Santa Cruz, about one hour’s drive from the hotel. Head for the big shopping street called Calle Castillo, which starts from Plaza España. There is also the big department store El Corte Inglés and the shopping center El Meridiano. Please remember that most shops close for siesta from around one to five in the afternoon. The large department stores and shopping centers, however, stay open all day.
There are local buses that you can take to the main bus station just a couple of minutes from the hotel. From the main bus station you can take a connecting bus to Santa Cruz.
Thursdays and Saturdays around 9:00 am to 2.00 pm are market days in Fañabe, just in front of the shopping center The Duke shops, and on Sundays and Tuesdays there is a market at the same time in Los Cristianos.
