Fodor's Review

The ancient Guanches' name for their kings was "Mencey," and you do feel like one at this grand, white stucco-and-marble hotel just north of the city center. It's been a hotel on the island since it was built in 1950—the guest list has included Elizabeth Taylor, James Brown, and Sofia Loren plus countless monarchs and aristocrats. The hotel still exudes timeless elegance, with crystal chandeliers, original frescoes, and a traditional patio. Rooms are spacious and decorated in white with chocolate brown detail. Be sure to take a tour through the manicured gardens, and don't miss the turtle pool. Los Menceyes restaurant serves local cuisine.
