    David. I normally ask my butler to walk in front with a squeegee mop.

    David, my tip is to avoid swimming, bathing, or showering then you should not have a problem or if you do need to do any of these whilst on holiday why not book a room at this place for 2 weeks

    Hospital General de Lanzarote
    Carretera San Bartolomé Arrecife
    +34 928 80 70 50

    and don’t forget your ehic card otherwise it will cost you a lot more than a normal hotel

    David – you can manage fall a*se over t*t (as you say) when not on a slippery floor 🙂

    Think we’d all best avoid CT when David is there – a smelly Karaokist who lost his teeth on the beach does nothing for the resort’s tourist trade.

    Sorry David – couldn’t resist 🙂 Just hope I don’t bump into you next time we’re at GP ……..

    Hi,Wendy,think i do my comments on this page so they are helpfull for new visitors to this wonderfull island.Slippery floors,abrasive lava,hidden holes to fall down,and very important,don’t forget to pack your poligrip dental fixative lol

      On a serious note, my husband did slip on the rocks on the Jabillo Beach and dislocate his shoulder. Easy done.

      Lots of pools have ‘non slippery’ surfaces surrounding them though don’t they? It was so easy to slip, especially if you were running round and jumping in. You could still slip now, but not as easily as in the ‘old days’.

      Not a lot you can do to make the rocks ‘non slippery’ though is there?

    Would strongly recommend that people avoid walking on the breakwater rocks on Jabillo beach as someone did this whilst we were there in February and drowned. Very safe for swimming but the breakwater is very treacherous .
