GRUPO LOS MENCEYES

About

Us

For more than 45 years, the Weytjens family has been linked to the island of Tenerife since tourism began to develop in the south.

In 1975, Frieda, Stan's mother, traded Belgium for the island of eternal spring. After dozens of visits, on March 28, 1988, Stan, his wife Kristin, and their three children, landed in the quiet and completely unknown Palm-Mar development. The children, now adults and, after finishing their studies at renowned Spanish, French and American universities, found their place in the family business: The Weytjens family's interest focused on Palm Mar, where the German "Khan family" began their activity on the land in the late 1960s. Stan immediately saw the potential of this unfinished region.
Palm-Mar is a small enclave surrounded by two natural reserves in which the construction of hotels is not allowed, making it a magnificent residential area. Its proximity to Tenerife South airport, easy access to the main tourist centers and its admirable location close to the ocean with the recent construction of a promenade, make Palm-Mar a unique place on the island. The islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro are clearly visible from the shore. Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas are just a stone's throw away. And nature lovers can go on foot along a mountain path, through the nature reserve that runs from the end of the promenade. The perfect mix to turn this enclave into a found paradise.

The power of a family business

In the early 1990s, Grupo Los Menceyes designed and built the first luxury villas on the Palm-Mar coast, mainly for Flemish-speaking clients. Paradise continued to expand and, in the early 2000s, luxurious and prestigious projects such as Bahía de Los Menceyes and Playa de los Menceyes were created. Unfortunately, the severe international financial crisis of October 2008 also brought an abrupt end to the development of new construction projects in Tenerife. In 2015, the construction crisis had not yet completely disappeared, but the interest of investors, mainly Belgians, rose again. Combined with demand of the client and Grupo Los Menceyes expertise, construction projects were able to move forward and the private investors immediately wanted to work again with a well known family business, Grupo Los Menceyes.The renovated Palm-Mar is now one of the most sought-after locations in the south of Tenerife. Palm-Mar has a lot to offer with a mild climate in the summer and winter surrounded by beautiful nature, the immediate proximity of an airport and all that in a country that is a member of the European Union.

Many Belgians have settled here forever and enjoy, along with second-home guests and tourists, their little piece of paradise. Grupo los Menceyes not only limits itself to building, selling and renting luxury homes, but also invests in social commitment.
On the coast of Palm-Mar, three million euros have been allocated for the construction of public areas around Infinity Seafront Luxury Residence I & II, as well as for the development of the beach club, Bahía Beach with a natural pool in the ocean. To put Tenerife in the spotlight with a broader international audience, Grupo los Menceyes organizes and sponsors several annual sporting events. The three-day golf tournament - Tenerife Golf Event, the five-day cycling event - El Teide Challenge and the golf practice week - Tenerife Golf Experience are a clear example of this. Grupo Los Menceyes is also attentive to the social needs of the local population and continues to participate in social projects such as "Signo de Vida", an association that supports single mothers. Second homes are popular across Europe and give local business a boost. Anyone who dreams of a holiday residence under the Canarian sun is in the right place with Grupo Los Menceyes. Even those who want to sell or rent their apartment afterwards, through the innovative luxury vacation concept, Lifestyle Holidays, owners can count on a worry free rental experience. We not only provide security and peace of mind to the ever-growing “Mencey Family”, but also to employees and suppliers. As a dynamic company, "Grupo los Menceyes" is always looking for new opportunities. Having a long relationship with the island, experience as entrepreneurs, contacts with local authorities, and knowledge of the language and customs are important assets for success.
