Weather 22nd August 2017 – Los Cristianos/Las Americas

At the moment the sun is fighting a battle to get through the haze and slowly winning. It has been a warm and restless night and is now 25°C but it feels hot and airless. From 12.00 today Tenerife is on maximum alert for the risk of forest fires this is alongside the hot weather warning which is due to continue until at least tomorrow when many will see shade temperatures of 35°C.

Don´t know whether there was any cloud yesterday, certainly couldn’t see any due to the thick hazy dust of the current calima which continues to plague the south. The heat also continued to rise until it was an overwhelming 35°C on our patio but once the thermometer moved into the sun the mercury was off the scale. Down there somewhere beyond the hospital are the resorts well they were before this muck came in but yesterday they almost vanished.

Blue – the colour of next party at the IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Mencey

Given the imminent arrival of September and the end of the summer holidays for many, IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Mencey celebrates a series of theme parties to dismiss the summer season, in which colors will be the protagonists of the evening.

The first of these themed parties was held at the hotel on August 12, with great success, in which all the attendees could enjoy a summery evening set around the colour green.

In order to say farewell to the month of August, next Saturday, August 26, the Hotel will hold a second party based on the colour of the summer, a Blue Party.

Attendees will be able to enjoy music by the hotel DJ and be amazed at the transformation purely for the occasion of the garden and the terrace. The Iballa Cocktail Bar, will offer special promotions of Citadelle gin and 12-year-old Flor de Caña rum.

Throughout the year, IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Mencey offers residents and visitors to Tenerife a wide range of activities to enjoy without having to leave the city.

Free Shuttle to CC Plaza del Duque

Some of the pick up points are a fair distance from the southern resorts so this in my opinion is an excellent service. Even if you don´t have the money to spend in the shopping centre (well you probably do if staying in the Abama or HRH) it at least gets you to the beach 🙂
