My wife and I stayed here for the first week in May 2015. Transfer time from the airport is about an hour. It is a large complex spread out in well kept gardens. The room was very pleasant with housekeeping visiting every day. The entire complex is kept spotlessly clean. There are several shops on the ground floor of the main hotel building. There are several large well kept swimming pools with plenty of sun-loungers and a nice quiet small pool with private sunbathing in the naturist area located down beside the gym. The saunas are inside the naturist area, therefore clothing is prohibited. There is a swipe card gate leading down a small hill to mile upon mile of golden beach. Remember this hotel is not within a resort. Morro de Jable is about a forty minute walk south, but the hotel provides all you need. The food was of very high quality and plenty of variety. The restaurant for breakfast and evening meal is very good. Lunch is served in a separate snack bar type open building overlooking the beach which is most pleasant. Some cocktails are not included in the all-inclusive option but most are. The entertainment was not great but the animations team were great fun and work so hard. The other guests were mostly French and German, with a few British. They were all friendly and polite without being intrusive. This is a very good hotel in a lovely location. It was our first visit to this hotel but will not be our last. Karl Couse Ireland.More
Wonderful holiday :)
I have just came back from my 8 nights stay in Princess Hotel , where I was on vocation with my mother ( age 67) on all inclusive basis. After reading all reviews I had mix feelings about what to expect and would I be disappointed or not? As it was very late booking I had no choice but to take a risk. To my surprise, I found that hotel very nice, room was quite big with air con; we wanted to upgrade to see view but paying 42 Euros per night, I found extremely pricey so I stayed in a room on the first floor with a bit view at the sea, which was fine too as most of the times we were either sunbathing or walking along the sea; it takes 40 min-1 hr to walk to a nearest resort, which has lots of design and local shops. The food was really good , always something to choose from ,on a service side perhaps not as good as the food but we didnât mind to help ourselves if you know what I mean? If you love walking, sunbathing and relaxing this is a place for you, if you want to stay in lively resort, I would recommend to book somewhere else. The beaches are amazing there with blue green water, a bit windy but in the afternoon you can always have a scarf around your neck. If you have a walk difficulties then perhaps you will choose a different resort as here everything is on the hills hence going down to a beach could be quite tricky, unless you will stay at the pool all the time. Next time if I ever return I will book Essencia hotel , which is part of Princess hotel with slightly better buildings and quieter pool , little more sophisticated, but you need to do straight away as they will refuse to upgrade you , not sure why, we tried with no success. So good luck to anyone who will book it in the nearest future, you wonât be disappointed ïMore

We stayed here in early May for two weeks of glorious weather. The hotel complex is immense with a huge Reception/ bar area with ample seating inside and outside. The dining room is extensive with plenty of tables, as is the theatre/entertainment area on the floor below. Meals in the dining room are good with plenty of choice, wine for the all-inclusive is served in half bottles. However, lunch is only served in La Choza, which is far too small when the hotel is full. The waiters try very hard but cannot clear tables fast enough and the dishes quickly run out, aqain the chefs cannot cook fast enough. Birds are a pain here landing on the tables and plates. Most guests wanted tables in the shade, of which there were insufficient. There seemed to be much confusion as to what drinks were included in which all inclusive deal. Staff seemed inadequately trained and there were not enough of them at the bars. One person serving at busy times simply could not cope, causing long queues, especially at Coco Loco bar. This hotel seems to have been taken over by the French, with British and German guests feeling pushed out. Although some French guest were friendly, a lot liked to combine tables in the restaurant, were noisy and disruptive. Even the Animation team were French, with very little information given in English. The rooms were spacious and clean, the complex is spread out with lovely grounds full of flowering shrubs. The staff worked very hard, some were friendly, others a bit surly. The evening shows were very good, with some outside entertainers and some by the Animation team, do not miss the Lion King and Celtic Spirit..More

My wife and I have used this hotel a number of times and have always been happy with it. Howerver, this time, we were very disappointed. Clearly the hotel is in transition from a Thomson Platinum to something much more down-market. Cleanliness, food and entertainment were all 'ok' but customer service was lacking in many area's. Too few staff, many of whom appeared inexperienced, did their best to cope but it was obvious they were not happy. It was also clear that the Brits ( and to a lesser extent the Germans) were considered second-class guests compared to the French. Many of the French were loud and inconsiderate and frankly, some were a disgrace. Even their annimation team dominated the pool area to the detriment of other guests.More

Amazing weather, Amazing Hotel
Just returned from a week at this hotel. I booked with Thomson so didn't have the option of booking Escencia. I met a German couple who were in this part of the hotel and there was no real difference. They had a coffee machine and playstation in their room but that was the only difference I found. Food in the restaurant was exactly the same, so I would often see the German couple in the non Escencia side of the restaurant. Checkin - very quick, although I was at the front, they were very helpful, gave me a map and directions to my room and pools etc. Offered to have my bags taken to my room. I paid 12 Euros for a safe deposit box which is about average price. Food - very high standard, the roast duck was lovely, lots of choice, if you are really fussy then there is a child's buffet where they have burgers. Waiters - very attentive, after a couple of days they remember what you like to drink. Bar staff also seemed friendly, although they don't speak English so often ended up with the wrong drink, whiskey and cola sounds very similar to whiskey ola which is a Spanish baileys. Pools - lots to choose from, lots of sun beds, never a problem. Rooms - my room was in the 6000 block, I had a sea view and pool view, just luck of the draw I imagine. Two single beds, settee and chair, huge balcony. Felt very spacious, decor was very good, didn't switch the tv on. The beach - not very wide at high tide and full of sun beds for hire. Didn't notice any naturists. Although it is a clothing optional beach. Hotel - overall the hotel seemed very clean, lots of places to sit, inside and out. Entertainment - evening shows seemed to attract a huge amount of people, the daytime animation team was ok, people seemed to enjoy it, every hour or so you would hear loud music, but it wasn't played all day, so didn't annoy me. Overall this was a fab 4 star, very similar to others in the canaries, I can't think of anything to complain about. The shop could do with a fridge for the chocolate they sell, but only a small niggle. The hotel is on a hill and my room was the furthest from the main restaurant but only took 2-3 mins. Most of the people I spoke with are regular visitors, either this hotel or the Jandia next door. One couple comes 4 times a year.More
