Occidental Santa Cruz Contemporaneo
Reviewed April 16, 2014

We stayed one night in this hotel before catching the flight. The reception staff was very professional, nice and made us feel that we made a right choice with this hotel. Location is good next to park and good shopping area with nice restaurants. Staff was very helpful and we got all kind of service you would expect to get from a dtylish hotel like this.

This hotel is well placed near a park and short walk through to city centre. It is an interesting town to visit and has a wonderful lido area on seafront but no beach. Excellent beach 5kms away at San Andres. Mountain towns of La Laguna and La Oratava well worth a visit

Good location, helpful and efficient staff, really great pricing, all the facilities literally within 5 minutes... We had an extremely enjoyable experience at this hotel!
The rooms, the hotel itself and the restaurant are very clean, the room-service is very good, the reception staff are just excellent!
Perhaps the menu of the restaurant could be expanded a little bit, but the rest was just fine. We loved the breakfast.
Special thanks for the internet connection: it was easy, very good speed, and any number of devices could be connected at no cost.
The reception staff are amazing, thank you for your great performance!

Room Tip: The staff are very helpful and can fix practically any problem and meet any needs, just ask them! R...

We stayed in Barcelo with my son for three nights, definitely a highlight of the holiday. Brilliant location, just next to the park (literally round the corner, great, added bonus in the city) and short walk from the old town. Welcoming, friendly staff, lovely design (bit of eastern influence), comfortable room with very comfortable bed, exceptional choice of food for breakfast. Very happy and would most definitely recommend it.

We had a really good stay here, The hotel is modern, clean, very well located for exploring Santa Cruz. it is classed as being in the "Chic" district, the area did seem nice compared to some other parts we walked through. There are lots of restaurants nearby, We'd recommend Victor Cruz- tapas restaurant round the corner underneath the hotel. it did seem more like a business hotel, but worked really well for us. We sat out for a couple of hours by the pool late one afternoon which was nice, bit too cold for swimming but it was a real sun trap with plenty of seating to read and enjoy the fresh air. There is limited underground parking available- ask at reception they can see the car park on their screen and let you know if there is a space, it is free of charge and just around the corner, if not it will be street parking which is quite busy but you would find something so don't let this put you off the hotel.
We didn't think the air con/fans worked very well in the room, so it was quite warm, but perhaps it wasn't warm enough for the air con to kick in. It was good value, clean and in a good location

I was in Santa Cruz for a business conference and we were put up at this hotel. Apart from missing a bath (they are becoming rarer and rarer!), the room was light and airy, well designed and the bathroom was cleverly thought out with plenty of space for one's toiletries which is not always the case. Very extensive choices for breakfast - and a terrific cafe/bar to chill out in the evenings offering delicious snacks/tapas. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Issues with speed of Wifi but that was the case at the three surrounding hotels, one of which was a 5 star!! They were also very flexible when we moved some of our delegates from another hotel - charming and efficient. A great find!

Room Tip: Make sure it is not one which overlooks an internal lightwell.

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of January when we booked a last minute trip away. The hotel is nice and quite modern, however the room was quite small and had no balcony, which made it feel like a box. The room was clean, it could have done with a bit more attention though, there was quite a bit of dust around the skirting and bedside table. The room card stopped working quite a few times, which was annoying as we were on the 5th floor and had to go back down to reception for them to fix it, 3 times on one occasion. If you're looking for a cheap hotel and are not planning to spend much time in it apart from sleeping I'd say this one would be fine, it's certainly not a bad hotel. The location is OK, everything it Santa Cruz is within walking distance. If I was returning to Santa Cruz I would likely look for an alternative, however I would not rule it out completely.

Room Tip: Don't keep your room key/card next to your phone, apparently this is why it stopped working, whi...
