The luxurious Iberostar Grand Hotel Mencey is a colonial-style building in the centre of Santa Cruz. Tenerife's capital city is home to brightly painted buildings, museums and shops. According to Frommers, this city is also "the best location for sampling imaginative local cuisine in ultra-stylish restaurants".
The 5-star hotel is in a quiet residential area, adjacent to García Sanabria Park, described as "a tropical oasis of birdsong, fountains and greenery" by Lonely Planet. It's also less than a mile from the ocean and a 19-minute drive from Playa de Las Teresitas and the city’s ferry port, where there are regular crossings to the other Canary Islands.
This palatial property has two acres of landscaped gardens, a pretty courtyard and an outdoor pool surrounded by sun-loungers and palm trees. There's a plush spa with a sauna, a Turkish bath and a dry thermal area, as well as float tanks, a hydrotherapy pool, a whirlpool tub, sensation showers and a relaxation room. Guests have a choice of gourmet restaurants, or can whip up their own meals at the hotel’s cookery school (a surcharge applies). A cocktail bar with a garden terrace is a tranquil spot to unwind, while sports facilities include a fully equipped gym and tennis courts. There are 261 stylish rooms with a minimalist design. According to The Daily Telegraph, "all rooms are uncluttered, bright and open-plan". In-room amenities include free Wi-Fi, MP3 docking stations and mini bars.
