Families have plenty to keep them busy at this hotel. And grown ups will love the extra pools, restaurant and chill-out area they can exclusively use when they book an adults-only room.
Getting to the beach is easy here – steps lead straight to it. Meanwhile, the tropical gardens are home to four big pools – three of them just for over 18s staying in the adults-only rooms. There's a big buffet restaurant for families, and a place exclusively for guests staying in the adults-only section, too.
On top of pools and restaurants, the grounds are home to tennis courts, a children’s petting farm, and an adults-only wellness area. In the evenings, live acts take centre-stage.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. 1 visit to the à la carte restaurant is included, and, if staying in the adults-only section, 1 visit to the Mediterranean restaurant.
Unlimited local alcoholic beverages and soft drinks 10.00-23.00. Afternoon tea also available.
Snacks, cakes and pastries at set times. Ice-cream 11.00-17.00.
Open for Mediterranean buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, either on the sun terrace or indoors. You'll be able to help yourself to the buffet lunch or order snacks such as pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers and sandwiches. This restaurant is also home to show cooking, where you can watch dishes being prepared right in front of you. Come the evening, this place turns into an over 18s à la carte restaurant that's just for guests staying in the adults-only rooms. One visit per stay is included when you book into the adults-only area, and a reservation is required. This place comes with a dress code for dinner, it's trousers and a shirt with sleeves for gentlemen.
These suites are in the adults-only area of the hotel and come with king-size beds. A separate lounge area offers a seating area and a small table and two chairs. You also get your own terrace with sunloungers and views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
We have just returned from a week at the Club Jandia Princess and overall this is a lovely hotel. It is very clean and well kept with beautiful grounds. All the staff are hard working and friendly and help to ensure that you enjoy your stay.
On the day we arrived (Wed 6th April @12.30) it was at the same time as a lot of people were leaving so it was rather chaotic in Reception but the welcome glass of sparkling wine was gratefully received. We had to wait a while to check in but the staff at Reception were very helpful and gave us all the relevant information we required.
We all had silver bands and stayed in the adults area in a well furnished and comfortable room. I don't see the extra benefits of black bands are worth the additional cost. However we weren't leaving until around 5 on the last day so paying the extra for our late checkout room was certainly worthwhile as normal checkout is 11 a.m and this gave us virtually an extra day without worrying about having to find somewhere to change before leaving.
The food was varied and well cooked with lots of choice and although it did get crowded in the main restaurant at times it didn't create too many problems. There were always sunbeds available although they were less easy to get by the adult pools if you left it too late, especially as there were four of us wanting a group together.
The evening entertainment was excellent with some fun shows by both the resident entertainments team (Grease) and outside acts (a great Abba tribute band and a talented magician) to name just three.
There were queues for drinks at times but generally the bars were well staffed and this minimised the wait.
It's not really a hotel for those with walking difficulties as there are lots of steps and slopes to get around and it's situated on a cliff so the walk up and down to the sandy beach is not for those who have trouble getting about. However the views from the hotel are fantastic and the walk along the beach to Jandia itself is very enjoyable,(about half an hour or so) although there are rocks to clamber over at one point. Also there is not much around if you don't want to eat or drink in the hotel or want to go for a stroll in the evening.
Nevertheless in spite of this it is a lovely place to have a holiday, the weather was great, even the wind dropped for the last few days making it feel even hotter, and I would like to thank everyone at the hotel for ensuring we had a fabulous time. We returned to chilly England with many happy memories and feeling refreshed which is what a holiday should be for.More

Amazing winter break
People love to moan!...stayed here for a week all inclusive in March and could not fault the standard of food and cleanliness. Room was spacious and clean. Yes there's not many channels on the television but If you want to watch television - you should probably stay at home. Food varied from salads, sushi, duck l'orange, freshly cooked calamari. Food was always available. We stayed with silver bands and the local drinks were decent however if you do like branded drinks - I think it's good you have the option to upgrade. The only issue we had was trying to upgrade with only two days left of our holiday - we were refused and told there has to be a 3 day minimum use of the black band. The swimming pools were lovely, yes cold however the chill out pool is heated and slightly warmer. Read a lot of review about the 'mouldy' pool and this really put us off however on closer inspection you can see that the reason for the green colour is the paint used to make a 'chill out' vibe to the area. I lost my ring in the pool and it was at reception the next day (showing the cleanliness of these areas). Overall could not fault the holiday for a short winter sun break. If you are expecting al a Carte standards ... Don't go all inclusive - because believe it or not - you won't get this standard when the hotel is cooking for hundreds of people ð.More
Great holiday (shame it was so windy)
The resort was great. Well planned out accommodation, with family rooms being located away from the 'adults only' part of the complex. The staff were very friendly and the animation team provided activities throughout the day. The evening entertainment was varied and was very good, especially The Lion King. There's plenty of options for eating and a wide variety of foods available. I was in a family group of eight and my granddaughters (ages 10 and 8) enjoyed the facilities and entertainments. They also enjoyed visiting the squirrels (on the way to the beach).
We went during the Easter School Holiday and though sunny it was also quite windy but we enjoyed our stay and came home with nice suntans.More

Let's start off with answers to people's questions & complaints.
Wrist bands Black / Silver / Blue. Simple read the tour operators web site or trip advisor there is enough info to enable you to choose which band suits you.

Naked people... Read trip advisor, go on google or read up on the area it tells you the beaches have naturists, the hotel has a naturist area...
DO NOT COMPLAIN IF YOU CANT BE MYTHERED TO READ IN ADVANCE!!!
Location... Read trip advisor, read the tour operators info, go on google earth.
There is nothing close by so peaceful... DO NOT CPMPLAIN IF YOU CANT BE MYTHERED TO READ IN ADVANCE!!!
Food... It's a European all inclusive, I've been to many AI hotels, no it's not the Caribbean and shouldn't be compared to it, compare it to Greece, Turkey or others in Spain.
Yes after a week of eating in the same place it becomes a little monotonous , but if I had Gordon Ramsey cooking for me 3 times a day every day I would be bored.
If you want a nice change â¬3 taxi to Restraunt Maribu amazing food.
The hotel is spotless, staff work hard, black bands DO NOT get preferential treatment at the bar... But black bands are mainly Europeans who do not like to queue they will try to push in.
The food is a good standard considering how many people they cater for all with different tastes.
No complaints from me and I will be booking a 3rd visit next year.More
The hotel setting is wonderful. The rooms are spacious, but I have to say that the picture on the internet made them look much brighter and spacious. So we where rather disappointed. My husband and I went with my daughter and her husband. We where all very disappointed with the entertainment.More
