    A good choice

    by

    The hotel is very comfortable, with swimming pool and a nice courtyard with the typical Canary balconies.

    Santa Cruz in Five Star Style

    by

    The facilities are gorgeous. There is a small botanical garden in the middle of the hotel with a few balconies off rooms that overlook the semiprivate area. Inside, the building is decked out in European luxury with large hand painted murals and traditional European architecture. The room service was great for the first two nights and then it was less attentive after that.

    We ended up finding an excellent deal on Orbitz for a rate of $110 Euros plus the 7th night free- normally a $260 Euro/night hotel.

    Unique Quality: Most rooms offer a beautiful view over the city to the ocean or at least a relaxing balcony overlooking the pool. There's a garden courtyard near the pool where live bands would occasionally play and even a turtle pool/fountain where they keep live turtles. This is also one of the few places on the Island where you'll find a Casino.

    Directions: Off the Las Ramblas

    Luxurious Hotel

    by

    Part of the Sheraton chain of hotels and located in a quiet residential area yet walking distance to the center of the old city with its shops and restaurants, the Mencey Hotel of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is beautiful luxurious and well worth its prices: 137euros for a single and 147euros for a double.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is absolutely magnificent and has the charm of the old colonial. It has many salons and services for business purposes and is ideal for a romantic holiday as well.

An Introduction To Santa Cruz de Tenerife

by digate

"All About The Island of Tenerife"

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary islands, of which there are 7 major and 6 Smaller islands.
The westerns Islands of Tenerife, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro form the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, whilst the eastern Islands of Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura form the province of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The Canary Islands lie between 96 and 304 km ( 60 -90 ) Miles off the North West Coast of Africa, but they are a part of Spain.

The island of Tenerife covers an area of 2057 sq km ( 794 sq miles) and is shaped like an Isosceles triangle with Mount Teide, The Volcano in the centre rising to 3718 m ( 12,199 ft ) with The Caldera de las Canadas ( a gigantic collapsed grater ) surrounding the peak.

Population
The population currently stands at approximately 1,000,000 inhabitants, this obviously is not counting the tourists.

Climate
Tenerife is fortunate to have warm temperatures all year round, rarely falling below 18 degrees C in the coastal areas, the norm being in the mid 20's, rising to the 30's in the summer months.
Temperatures are on average around 3 degrees cooler when going in land away from the coast.
The north side of the Island is cooler than the south.
Rain fall is generally confined to the winter months October through to March, there is very little and even less on the South Coast, but when it rains it tends to be heavy, it very rarely lasts long and all is normally back to the normal sun the day after, again the north coast getting more rain than the south.

Language
Spanish is the main language on all the Canary Islands, although if you ask a Canarian, they will tell you they speak 'Canarian', which is a version of Spanish.
In the tourist areas you will be understood speaking English or German along with a few other languages.

Currency
Being a part of Spain, the currency is the 'Euro' (€).
There are plenty of banks, even away from the tourist areas, all having cash machines, so the normal cards can be used to obtain cash.
Travellers cheques can be used, although they seem to be less popular now.

Driving
In Tenerife you drive on the right .
Cars are readily available for hire, you normally get the best deals by booking on line before you leave home.
If you need transport form the airport to your accommodation, it's worth considering booking a car from the airport.
All road signs etc. are the same as any other European Country. Speed limits and Alcohol Levels are very similar as well. It is best not to have a drink when you are going to drive, they are very hot on breathalizing.
Updated Rules of the Road as of December 2009.

Opening Hours
In the tourist areas shops, restaurants etc. are open all day from 9/10am until late.
Offices, Banks and official places open 8/9 am until 1/2pm.
In some areas they still work the siesta hours this being 8am - 1pm then 5pm - 8pm. It all depends on which area you are staying in, just check on arrival.

Transport
The Titsa bus service is excellent and covers almost all of the Island, even going up to Mount Teide, the fares are reasonable and 'Bono' cards can be purchased if you intend to make use of the service on a regular basis, these offer good discounts.
There are ferries to all the other main Canary Islands as well as inter island flights from the north and south airports.
There is a tram service running from Santa Cruz to La Laguna every 3 minutes or so.
Taxi's are always available.

THE EMERGENCY NUMBER IS 112.
This number will put you in touch with the emergency services, Police, Ambulance and Fire.
There should be someone there who can speak your language.
