Adults will love the chill-out zones at this hotel. But there’s plenty for families, too, including a mini farm*.
Getting to the beach is easy here – steps lead straight to it. Meanwhile, the tropical gardens are home to 4 big pools – 3 of them for adults. There's an adults-only restaurant, as well, plus a big buffet place for families.
On top of pools and restaurants, the grounds are home to tennis courts, a children’s petting farm, and an adults-only spa. In the evenings, live acts take centre-stage.

Disappointed but not hotel's fault.
We spent a week at this hotel in early December. I have left it a week or so before writing the review because I'm unsure what to put. The main problem I have is that we went with Thomson Holidays who have labelled this hotel a 5* when the official rating is 4* and, personally, I think Thomson have got it wrong. This is doing a disservice to the hotel and raising customer expectations which are not met. As a 4* hotel, our room was very good and clean apart from the floor which appeared to be covered in dust. (It looked clean but when I walked around in with socks on, I collected weeks worth of dust.) My bed was uncomfortable for me but I like a soft bed so that's a purely personal preference. No tea/coffee or kettle in the room - this is the first time I've ever come across this. The hairdryer was the best I've had in a hotel room! The staff were helpful and polite and most were friendly. There was the odd one who wasn't as friendly but I think that was more down to being under pressure and having a lot to do. The food was fine - basically what you would expect from a 4* holiday hotel - there's nothing much else I cab say on that point. On arrival the pools did not appear to be that clean although they had, apparently, had a storm which I suppose might have contributed to this although the green fir on the bottom of one of the pools had nothing to do with a storm. If you go to this hotel expecting an average 4* hotel then you won't be disappointed but if you're expecting 5* - as per Thomson - I would consider booking somewhere else.More

What a mixed bag!
The room was reasonably appointed, mattresses very firm but the hotel were good about providing soft toppers -I used 3. The adults only area in the grounds applies to 'silver' bands only in the restaurants it applies to any adults -confusing? Could do with a few English channels on the television. The ambiance of the hotel is great, all nationalities being sociable, staff are great especially Customer services manager Phillipe and the Yoga / exercise teacher Annika. The downside of this place is the main restaurant, when the hotel is busy the food is akin to school dinners, breakfast -cold scrambled eggs and roast tomatoes in 'fresh' trays (cooked the night before maybe and not heated before going onto the hotplates?). Dinner was the real downer, worst evening took us about an hour and a half of going to the restaurant up to the bar and back of trying to find a table, Phillipe started himself and the maÃ®tre d's seating people, but the maÃ®tre d's only did that when he was present, the rest of the time they stood around chatting to the girls with the aperitifs or wandering around doing nothing. trays of food ran out regularly and one evening we had 5 out of 8 trays of vegetables potato based. The shame about this place is that the first week we were there the food was great. Then the hotel reached capacity and things went downhill very quickly. Lasting impression a lovely hotel, great staff good facilities shame about the restaurant.More
Fantastic location and views.
We booked this hotel having cancelled a holiday to cape Verde due to terrible reviews.We were a bit apprehensive after reading mixed reviews about the jandia princess but we needn't have worried. We had enormous suite adults only with VIP extras such as turn down service tea coffee etc.The suite was very clean throughout our stay and had amazing sea views even when lying in bed! The views and gardens and beach were fab.We had a car and visited sotovento beach where they filmed Exodus coming out later this month.Food was okay. The main buffet restaurant I have to agree was like a service station.However we ate breakfast and lunch outside each day at LA choza with amazing views.Had two al a carte meals which were okay and a BBQ on last night which was fine.Staff were very friendly but at times overstretched. Towels at dawn on sunbeds made us laugh all pegged down and some not used for hours on end much better on beach. Coloured bands confusing for some clients. Entertainment weak but not intrusive. All in all a good week in glorious sunshine.More
Just got back after a great week here. We had room 9103 which was an excellent room with giant double bed and good facilities. All the staff we met were very polite and pleasant and the food was good. The hotel is a very good 4 star which the group rate it as ,only first choice \ Thomson say its 5 star. Pools were freezing so only the brave went in. All in all a very good holiday.More

Room without a view
Prior to going to Jandia, we read plenty of reviews regards this Hotel and were dreading it. On arrival, we were allocated a ground floor room with a dodgy lock on the patio door. We approached the Reception desk the following day and they arranged for a room change without needing an explanation. The rooms were of a good standard, we needed blankets which are available from Reception(as are beach towels and booking the shower room prior to leaving). The arrival meeting is missable as they're primarily interested in selling trips. Throughout our stay we only saw two couples that had Black bands, we had Silver(Adults only), there is a mix of clients in the evening but no children the food was quite good standard but we didn't notice many themed evening. The evening entertainment was average at best. taxis to Jandia were between 8-9 Euros but if booked through Reception they're slightly more. The beach was a few steps down the rock face. Views from the La Choza (lunchtime restaurant) were/are stupendous). this Hotel does have Brandy but it is cheap stuff. There is an area in the main Restaurant ceiling that has paint flaking off from the wet weather. The hotel does run a "cocktail of rhe day". Overall, we would recommend this hotel.More
