We stayed at the Occidental Hotel in Tenerife Santa Cruz for a birthday occasion. We were extremely pleased with our stay. The hotel is situated in the heart of Santa Cruz, making it very easy to access all the shops, mariner and Restaurants.
You will also benefit from Tenerife North Airport at just | 15.3 km away, making it a short hop to the hotel and back again if needed. Playa de las Teresitas is | 7 km away and the Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is | 8.6 km away. Perfect we thought!
The service in the Occidental was five star, we could not fault them at all. We checked in easily with friendly staff who explained the hotel facilities we had access to during our stay. Our room was on the 9th floor with a view over the rooftops. We could of had a room with a balcony if we wanted, but we were happy with what we had booked. The room had a TV, minibar, towels, hairdryer, shower toiletries and air-con. It also had a 24 hour reception with room service if required.
Our room was very peaceful although i had requested a high floor. The beds are comfortable, a good night sleep was had by all.
The price of staying at this hotel is very reasonable, you can go as expensive as you like really but if your looking for a stay that is not to pricey then this is for you. There is also a restaurant that serves delicious food within the hotel with a bar. The guests also have access to a roof top pool, which is really great as it can get hot in Tenerife. The pool is open until 9pm.
On our visit as mentioned above we were celebrating a birthday. I did arrange for a piece of cake with candles to be brought up to our room prior to our arrival. I did not hear back via email regarding my request. On the evening of my chosen request we were welcomed back to our room to a lovely chocolate brownie in chocolate sauce, it was also dressed with tasty fruits. I was extremely thankful to the manager who had taken my email request and thoughtfully acted it out ( free of charge). A top class service i thought.
So, if you are visiting Santa Cruz and need a hotel to stay in check out this one. You wont be disappointed at all. Santa Cruz has a lot to offer so combined with a great stay you cant go really wrong.
