Rooms kept spotlessly clean. Extensive breakfast buffet with Nespresso coffee machines. Hotel has a beautiful spa, pool, pool bar, gym and on roof tennis court. Location is perfect for walking into the city and exploring the multitude of small shops and cafes. Hotel has 4 or 5 restaurants so rather spoilt for choice. It was a very enjoyable stay and the staff are extremely helpful.

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed for 7 nights checking in late evening. Room wasn’t ideal but was moved quickly and no fuss. Room was lovely - spacious, airy, exceptionally clean and serviced to a high standard daily. The one problem we had one night was sorted within 15 minutes. Only areas for improvement - bill guest correctly and be aware that the car park attendants are grumpy and affect your brand - they were the last people we saw and left a sour taste in my mouth.

The Grand Mencey is essentially a very good hotel but a couple of niggles prevented me from giving a 5 star review. First, though, the good; - We had a garden view room which was clean, well appointed and very comfortable. It also had a nice view of the pool and grounds - The breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice including gluten free options - The staff were very friendly and helpful - The complementary taxi to and from Las Terasitas beach was nice touch - The hotel grounds are well maintained and the pool was very nice. The hotel was also beautiful appointed and very comfortable - An excellent location, easily walkable to the centre of Santa Cruz and to the tram to La Laguna. Maybe 10-15 minutes for each. Now, the things with room for improvement; - The pool decking was stripped and restained whilst we were there. This took place over approx 3 days and began at 6pm on the first day. That basically meant we were enjoying the afternoon sunshine and a swim when the peace was disrupted by power tools and workmen. There had been no notice of this advertised to us so we found it disruptive and frustrating. - The poolside bar is only open at weekends and, although the larger bar is nearby, no-one was circulating around the pool taking drinks orders. It'd be an improvement to the service to have staff available to take orders. - There were 3 different events at the hotel whilst we were there. One wedding on the first night, a business event on the Thursday and then a large commercial event on the Saturday. This created a fair bit of disruption at the hotel, especially the Saturday event, and made it a lot less relaxing and peaceful than we wanted it to be. There was, once again, no notice of these events advertised to us. - The wifi in the room was patchy and regularly dropped out. - The air con wasn't particularly effective with the dials making no discernible change to the temperature. This was uncomfortable when the temperature hit 28 on the Monday but less of an issue as it became cooler later in the week. If the temperatures had stayed high, we'd have asked for it to be fixed. I'd certainly recommend the Grand Mencey because it's a lovely place to stay and the staff were great but it fell short of what I had been expecting from a 5 star hotel in some of the details.

We stayed in this hotel on two occasions We love going to Santa Cruz because it gives you the authentic feel of Canary Islands instead of the tourist orientated Las Americas or Los Christianos Hotel is located in lovely part of the city opposite a stunning park Close to boutique shops and gorgeous restaurants Hotel has a lot of authentic features With beautiful, tranquil garden and outside sitting area Bedrooms are beautiful, decent size with very comfortable beds and soft cotton bedding which feels very luxurious. Food is outstanding there is a lot of it too Example: Breakfast Buffet includes three different types of caviar and Cava :) Hotel has a pool, outside bar with sitting area, gym and amazing SPA Evening entertainment it’s very classy usually singer or a band ( nothing loud or tacky ) This hotel is very relaxing, staff is very professional and provides excellent level of service. It’s a truly 5* hotel.

The stay at the Grand Mencey was absolute joy---from the helpful reception desk staff, to the warm and delightful breakfast restaurant staff, to the beautiful common areas and comfortable rooms. I am a critical spirit, and I would say something negative if I felt it was warranted. There is nothing but positive things to say about this centrally located, beautiful property that treats its guests like royalty and gives them their money's worth.
