VIP Holiday - Tenerife November 2017


Where: Canary Islands

Foxy Bingo VIPs really did get the "special treatment” on our latest event...a week away at the all-inclusive Hotel Barceló on the stunning west coast of Tenerife!

Sarabun, Toosey, Zanny, Pilla, Discodebz, Aristocat and Mariebabe22 plus guests enjoyed a week they will never forget!

On arrival we were greeted with drinks and on the same evening we had a champagne reception with canapés. We also were seated together for dinner which was perfect giving us all a chance to get to know one another.

We wanted the VIPs to unwind, relax and have a fantastic holiday and that’s exactly what they did. Most of it was spent by the pool. We also took part in activities such as archery, rifle shooting, Zumba classes and other tournaments. On an evening we would meet up and have a few drinks whilst watching the hotels entertainment.

A few nights during the week we went out to a couple of bars. Karaoke night was a big hit, there was non-stop laughter and everyone had a go! We also had a late night at a nightclub, again, it was great fun though the sore heads the following morning made us re-think our ways!

We also included an excursion and arranged for a trip to the Jurassic Island of La Gomora. Once we arrived we went on an amazing adventure on this volcanic island. The roads were extreme, very narrow and steep drops. We stopped off at many vantage points to take pictures. As we had exclusive use to three people carriers, we could do what we pretty much as we pleased! The climate changed dramatically during the climb, the higher we went, the colder and stranger the weather was. At the peak of the mountain we had lunch and were given a lesson in whistle talking! It was an amazing day, the scenery was out of this world and everyone enjoyed it.

The trip was amazing, everyone made new friends and we were all sorry to say goodbye to each other! I for one loved every minute spent with these special people!

Here’s what the winners had to say:


Hi, would just like to say a few lines about the fantastic week we just had in Tenerife. We met some lovely people who we hope to keep in touch with and hopefully meet again. The location of the hotel was stunning, and the hotel itself was also lovely, the food got a little repetitive which is the norm with all-inclusive but that wasn't a problem as we were quite happy to try out the local restaurants a couple of times. Little bit hilly for us outside and around the hotel but we're not ones for trekking about in the heat anyway and there was so much to do at the hotel through the day and entertainment in the evening so no need to go out. The highlights for us were, the fantastic excursion to la glomera we were so well looked after by Gustavo, Froggy and Bernie and we had a great laugh all day, the trips over the road to the karaoke bar and Friday night we even went to the nightclub and danced till 3am. Mark and Mandy were brilliant from meeting up at the premier inn to our return to Gatwick, always making sure everyone was ok, and always letting us know where they would be if we needed anything or if they were trying to organise things for us to do. Nothing was too much trouble and they were good fun whilst remaining professional they are a credit to the company. Mahoosive thanks to all!


My dad and I had a fantastic time. I can’t believe how much was included in the prize. Everything was well organised and the hotel and facilities were top notch. I choose not to go on the trip as I don’t always travel well in a boat and didn’t want to spoil it for others if I was poorly. Highlights for me was trying things I’d never done before like shuffle board and rifle shooting even if I did come last ha ha, someone has to . The water polo was also something I’d never done before and was such a great laugh. The staff at the hotel was lovely and the evening entertainment was something different every night. What more can you ask for. The icing on the cake was meeting some lovely people and now I have some extra great friends that I will be keeping in touch with. I haven’t any negative comments to say it was the most amazing prize I’ve ever won. Thank you so much.
Maybe see you soon I’ll be definitely entering more competitions as they are always varied to suit all sorts of people’s tastes.


Tenerife was awesome, we had a wonderful time!! You and Mandy looked after us so well!!
I know we are not late nighter's but we loved hearing all that funny stories.

Big hugs xxx


It was lovely to meet you both, you really made our holiday - thank you
We arrived home bringing the best memories of a wonderful holiday with us. An extremely well organised trip to Tenerife made even better by the professionalism shown by both Mark and Mandy who made every day really special, they organised everything with seeming ease. Their concern and approachability for all the group was excellent they made sure everyone was included and sorted out any problems quickly.

Staying in the Premier Inn the night before the flight was an excellent idea as it gave the whole party a great opportunity to get to know each other in a casual way before we set off. The flight to Tenerife was a pleasant one. The transfer to the hotel was quick, easy and very comfortable in a modern coach. On arrival at the hotel we checked into our rooms again an easy quick process. Our room had stunning views and was comfortable although the room was a little dated. The facilities at the hotel were excellent with plenty to do each day, lots of choice from rifle shooting to playing shuffleboard which was a new experience for me and I even managed to win one of the matches. Lots of daily activities in the swimming pool that a lot of our group really enjoyed.
We made some lovely new friends who I am sure we will keep in touch with.

The dining room had a huge variety of choices for all meals with a lot of the food being cooked as required.
The highlight of the trip for us was the day trip to La Gomora again everything was extremely well organised, mind you the sheer drops as we ascended the mountain were a little hair raising but conquered nevertheless! Again plenty to see and do in very pleasant company.
We also enjoyed the evening entertainment in the hotel with something different on every night.

Really there was something for everyone you could do as much or as little as you wanted, no pressure was put on anyone to do something they didn't want to do which was lovely.
Our journey home also went without a hitch. Lots of memories made.
Thank you once again for a fabulous holiday, made all the better by Mark and Mandy they really are an asset to your company.


The holiday was amazing and exceeded all expectations, I felt like a realVIP..... We all bonded very quickly and certainly enjoyed each other’s company.
As hosts, Mark and Mandy were exceptional. Our group visit to La Gomora was an experience not to be missed as was our group night out for Karaoke....absolutely brilliant!

The week was a total success in my eyes. My highlight was meeting some fantastic people who I can now say are my friends. This was truly a holiday that myself
and my husband will never forget.

Thank you for everything Foxy
