Tenerife definitely wins on road surfaces. GC has some shockers. Tenerife has less route options but the major routes up Teide are all top drawer, so if you're there for a long weekend you're not going to be bored. Tenerife climbs are a bit more consistent too, whereas GC climbs can be all over the place with some very angry sections. For GC I'd recommend the biggest tyres you can fit and, ideally, tubeless so that you can run lower pressures.
Did you venture up to the North West end of Tenerife? There's a lovely climb out from San Andres and a savage one up from Benijo.
