Today, we would like to meet someone very special, a guest who has been coming for years to our hotel, Mrs. Paola Cocchi. She has accepted very kindly to answer a few questions to explain us why she has been coming back for such a long time to our hotel.
And it is not only a very loyal guest of our hotel: it is a fantastic woman, oozing positive energy and good humor! Thank you so much, Paola, for dedicating us some time to answer our question, and for making our day happier!
How long have you been coming to the hotel?
I have been coming to this hotel for 8 or 9 years, I come at least once a year, and I love it. I was here in January last year with my daughter, and here I am again!
How did you get to know the hotel?
A few years ago, my husband wanted to come to Lanzarote because we had some friends going to the island and they told us it was beautiful. My son has to travel often for work, and he always works with the same travel agency to book his flights and hotels. And, this agency offered us being accomodated at the Princesa Yaiza. This i how I started to come here, and since then I have been coming every year. Every time I want to come, I call him, he speaks with this agency and that’s it!
And it’s wonderful to come here, actually it’s a very nice destination: every time I tell my friends I am going on holidays to the Canary Islands, they tell me how lucky I am!
Which activities do you usually do in the hotel, do you like going to the Spa or the Sport Center?
I come to this hotel to this hotel to something very specific: sunbathing. I am Italian, but I have been living for 42 years in the United Kingdom, and I really miss the sun! So, I spend most of my day here enjoying the sun next to the pools or on the beach, or walking along the promenade, I have to generate Vitamin D! I also enjoy participating to the aquagym lessons organised by the entertainment team. And, I also enjoy seeing their shows, they are fantastic, and I really enjoy that they recognise me every time I come back. With all this, plus relax and have a rest, I spend some great holidays!
And, when my grand-children come, they always have a great time at Kikoland.
Why do you keep coming back to the hotel, what do you like most about it?
I keep coming back to this hotel because it is a paradise, I like everything about it. I love the food, the way the hotel is run, the way the staff receive me, all “Ooooh, Mrs. Cocchi, we are pleased to see you again!”.
When I come, I share pictures of the hotel with my friends on Facebook, and all of them keep giving them “Likes”. I especially like to share pictures of the Christmas tree you do every year, I love it, although I missed it this year: I arrived two days after you had removed it.
I know that if I need anything, all I need to do is ask, I feel like I am at home. And, there is something very important for me: I know that time flies, so I want to enjoy it before it is too late, and this is the perfect place to do so.
I usually come here with my children and my grand-children, but I also enjoy coming alone. I am very independent and here, I know that I have everything I need to relax and enjoy.
What is your favourite restaurant in the hotel?
Actually I do not have any preference, I like all of them! As much the buffets as the a la carte restaurants are excellent, it is worthwhile to get to know them.
