“Great holiday”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

Wonderful week at the Princess Yaiza. Truly excellent friendly staff who did everything in their power to be helpful and pleasant. Lovely junior suite, very pleasant pool area, and enjoyable ambience.

Great breakfasts, very wide choice. Evening buffet meals very good, but over-priced. Plenty of places to eat in Playa Blanca. drinks, on the other hand, very reasonably priced (ice-cold pint of lager for £2.80!!!)

Handy supermarket just across the road

All in all a very pleasant experience. Thanks to the hotel management and staff who made it possible.

We booked a double room for our fortnight stay, but was upgraded on arrival to a junior suite. Great start together with the glass of bubbly whist you check in!

The room was spacious and well equiped, and housekeeping was excellent.The hotel is huge and filled with lovely furniture to sit and relax in. Although it was very busy, you never got the feeling of it being overcrowded. The two main pools were lovely. The salt water one was quieter as most families with children used the other one. This was better for us, as it was more relaxing, and closer to the plaza where there was regular entertainment from lunchtime, which you could listen to whilst lying on your sunbed!

The buffet breakfast was excellent, with a choice of 3 restaurants serving the same food. There was so much to choose from and it was a very good quality buffet. We never had to queue for anything and I could not fault the breakfast at all.

We did not eat evening meals in the hotel, as we preferred to go out into Playa Blanca, although from speaking to other guests, they appeared good quality, if a little overpriced.

The only thing I could criticise the hotel for, is the lack of free tea/coffee in the rooms. You were given one day's supply then you were required to pay 20 euros per week for the service. We just kept the spare tea bags from breakfast for our room!

All in all an excellent hotel, friendly, curtious staff. Would definitely recommend. Don't bother staying anywhere else in Playa Blanca - you wont find anything better!

Stayed there in July with three children (9 to 14) and found it to be relaxing . As many people have mentioned the breakfasts are excellent and there are two locations - which is good as the family suites are a bit of a walk from the main hotel. Our suite was as far as you could possibly be from the main swimming pool without going into the next county.

Food during the day/evening in the two restaurants we used was pretty good and better than expected based on previous reviews - we went to the Italian for dinner and the pool side for lunch once each. Most days though we alternated between the port and the town for evening meals and there are no shortage of places.

Pool was fine - a little nippy to jump into but not a problem once you got going, I used to acclimatise in the jacuzzi as an intermediate step in cooling down.

Service in the restaurants was attentive - although the bar/ice cream place should decide is it there to serve cocktails - which take time to prep - or ice creams which the kids want now. They also ran out and stayed out of most types while we were there, which is a nuisance.

Service at front desk was inpeccable.

A few basic plates and crockery would be much welcomed in the kitchenette. I can understand that they would prefer if you had lunch in the restaurants but that doesn't suit everybody. We bought fresh rolls , meats, cheeses and fruit in the supermarket beside the family suites block and had those for lunch most days. They did provide a wine opener mind:)

Only went to the evening entertainment once and it was appalling - a musical knowledge quiz. Best not to dwell on it.

The childrens entertainment aroud the pool was very so-so although on one occasion we heard about kayaking for the 9 year old which was was done through kikoland. He really enjoyed it and it only cost a fiver. I never did figure out the link between the kikoclubs for his age group and the hotel. it was clear for up to 8 but not so after that and the one time I asked it was suggested that I go over to kikoland - which is slightly separate - to find out. Not a big problem but a little disjointed.

Bit annoyed that my travel agent charged me an adult rate for a child and there was nothing I could do about it - claimed that their supplier, hotelbeds, had a different policy than the hotel.

And a word of warning if you're planning on road biking there. - the hotel is at the southernmost part of the island and has about 10k of a boring ride , straight into a strong headwind , before you begin to get to the interesting stuff.

Know before you go Hotel - Expensive, Courtious staff, Luxurious settings, Pampering a speciality, Location great. Ideal for Anniversaries, Honeymooners but not for a family holiday, a bit stuffy for Children and restrictive in attitude even though the facilities are great.

This is a hotel for that once in a lifetime holiday designed for couples.

Staff very very helpfull. Enjoy!!!!!!

Room Tip: Dosen't really matter where you stay all rooms are out of this world, but of course always look...

Having been to Playa Blanca and having the chance to look in this hotel we kind of knew what to expect, the arrival was perfect and the pure grandness of the hotel is really something special but....

Breakfast - 1 toaster that takes 4 turns to get toast, imagine once you have queued and then got hot food you kind of think you are in the travelodge back home!

Pools - Too cold for adults to use

Sundbeds - Not enough in peak season, a few times we give up getting a bed

Communication - one board sayd kids disco 7.30 another says 8pm??

Kids entertainment - excellent
Shows - excellent
Kids clubs - even better, our 12 year old did Kayaking and Sailing!

Room Tip: Higher the room better the view
