Stayed at this hotel for the first time I'm now currently onto my last day here! First of all bus journey from the airport is absolutely terrible it's never ending! And all they speak about is goats! Arrive and reception literally going 2mph after getting our keys finally no one showed us to our room so we had to use a map that was useless rooms are very old fashioned not modern at all good view from balcony! Swimming pools freezing! Beach full of rocks nightmare naked people everywhere which I clearly didn't no about! They also have a nudist area in the hotel as well which is clearly able to see which shouldn't be around children! Breakfast rubbish the bacon was just bits of fat lunch was cold not enough chicken no steak dinner some nights was nice others not night entertainment was terrible it was something you would see in a community hall back home boring ! Entertainment staff during day 1 in particular was very ignorant ignored us first few days spoke to us once invited us to private party in middle of night outside hotel and because we didn't go ignored us again didn't say hello nothing ignorant and rude !!! Most people at this hotel were French old and nasty you weren't aloud to laugh if you did you had the hotel shaking there heads at you! No one smiled wasn't much to do pretty boring at night especially wouldn't recommended this hotel.More
Fabulous Repeat Trip - But Tough on Non-Smokers...
Just back from my fourth trip to this lovely hotel, peaceful location, outstandingly beautiful tropical landscaped gardens, lovely birdsong and tranquil setting, I hope to go many times more. Nonetheless, a few observations after my rent January trip: - this visit there were so many more smokers in the hotel, the increased volume of smokers and amount of cigarette smoke was genuinely unpleasant and detracted significantly from our enjoyment of the holiday; you couldn't get away from it; along the footpaths, at the hotel lobby, on the restaurant terraces, the bars, the beach restaurant, the sauna complex.... The main restaurant needs one of the outdoor dining terraces designated clearly for non-smokers. (As it is currently, the smokers sit outside with the doors open and it feeds directly into the restaurant area). Similarly the restaurant aircon appears to suck the cigarette smoke directly in from the bar below. I can't overstate on this trip, as opposed to last month, how unpleasant the volume of passive smoke was. - The French company Lookea are now using the hotel, which ads to the cosmopolitan atmosphere. Lookea have however added some large garish red and white signs in the main pool area which do detract from the beauty of the leisure area. They also have loudhailer announcements and music wirh associated activities in the former Pizza Restaurant next to the pool. This is way too loud and intrusive for all the other guests, whether relaxing on your balcony or in the quiet of the sauna areas. - A Russian group were there during part of our stay. The Russian guests we encountered were badly behaved, openly sneering dissaprovingly and commenting at other guests, again in the sauna areas. They were loud, drunk and openly disrespectful. (Not to mention throwing their beer onto the sauna coals). It may be a short term thing as they were only in evidence for a few days. - I had previously acquired a prologed chest infection on day 3 in resort last year, and dreaded something similar - alas the same happened again on day 3 again. I would say that a very significant percentage of guests had or acquired chest infections during our stay - it is unpleasant being ill on holiday and being unable to do planned activities (sterilising hand gel in the public areas would be good?) - Room Cleaning - was excellent as always BUT it was invariably carried out too late in the day...between 1 and 3 p.m. The timing was intrusive and detracted from our enjoyment of a quiet uninterrupted lunchtime break on the balcony or short siesta out of the midday heat. - The swimming pools (as a serious swimmer the main reason for my visit) were the coldest I have encountered anywhere worldwide, causing my skull to "crackle" with the severity of the cold. So impossible were they to swim in, even as a seasoned UK winter sea swimmer. I later found that the rear section of the main pool, separated by two walls (behind the island bar) was now heated to a reasonable temperature for the French guests, so I was able to swim there latterly. The top pool near the kiddies pool, appears to have underfloor electric heating, but is not effective. The pool in the sauna area was so cold that it was totally impossible to swim in it....which detracted from our enjoyment. - New wifi transmitter/receivers were being installed in the grounds and accommodation blocks as we were there, which will be great....apart from the additional cost, which remains prohibitive. - I, like some other guests I spoke to, would be delighted if only the hotel would have one single flat rate which included the extra cost of the room safe and wifi, rather than adding on all these things as extra's - which are just irksome and lead to bad feeling. In this age, wi-fi is pretty important - and travellers I would say, justifiably expect it. As I mentioned at the outset, it's a beautiful hotel, and notwithstanding my recent observations above, I will be definitely returning to this hotel on many more occassions.More
Overall, pretty good
Just returned from the Fuerteventura Princess, staying from 15/01 - 21/01. Overall it was pretty good. Found the staff friendly and helpful, no issues there for me. Our room was clean and pleasant, plenty of clean towels, beds made up every day, we had a view of the sea from the balcony which was very pleasant. Food - had masses of choice in the main restaurant, meat, roasts, fish, pasta, pizzas, large choice of vegetables, salads, fruit, desserts, you would be a very fussy eater not to find something you like and we never had to wait for a table. Breakfast had a equally large choice but breakfast orientated obviously (Incidentally the La Choza restaurant is now open, we had breakfast there most days, we went there for food during the day if we were hungry). Pool areas were fine, lots of sunbeds, cleaned every morning. Bars are all over the place, you don't have to walk far for a drink, beer, white/red/rose wine, fruit juice, coffee and water available all day (think there was stronger stuff available in the pool bar). There's certainly no disruptive work going on at the (unless you count chaps going out early in the morning with paintbrushes to whitewash some of the walls). The grounds of the hotel are very pleasant and are lit at night with subdued low level lighting, I quite liked it, you could see where you were going but it wasn't lit up like a Christmas tree, you could look up and see a beautiful sky full of stars. Jandia itself is a short taxi ride away (around 8 Euros) and is good for a change of scenery, some nice bars and even nicer chipmunks. All in all we had a really nice holiday. For balance would make two observations (not complaints). Reception is slow (check in especially so) and appeared to be that way all day, staff were doing their best but there weren't enough of them. WiFi is chargeable at 19 Euros a week and doesn't reach the whole complex (so we were told by reception), to be fair it did reach our room. In this day and age I think that should be free as it is in most of the bars in Jandia.More

Christmas on the beach
Went on a ten night holiday from the 19/12/2014, the hotel staff were always helpful and friendly our room was always kept spotless. We enjoyed the food and Christmas day was extra special the choice of food was amazing, the location was superb and the pool areas and grounds well maintained, we will be booking this hotel again. The only disappointment was the transfers to and from the hotel (not the hotels fault)More

Well what can we say. After reading the reviews for the F Princess we were amazed as having stayed there in the past we had nothing but praise for the food, the staff, the service and the hotel itself. We decided to chance it and still book for what was one of our favourite holiday destinations. We travelled with the request for adjoining rooms which we were given, a sea view, fantastic rooms cleaned everyday and changed regularly. As anywhere staff respond to politeness and we found the service excellent. Food could be cool which would be our only issue but the choice from the chefs cooking counter ensured there were delicious offerings every night cooked in front of you e.g. wonderful duck, fish, paella, steaks, chops, you name it. Waiter service for dinner with bottles not glasses of local wine added to the sense of quality. We have busy jobs and went for the superb beach walks, good food, r and r, book reading and sunshine. Particularly liked the sparkling wine offered on two mornings, we didn't partake but nice to see others enjoying it. Choice in the dining room is excellent with plenty stations including bread, pasta, soups, salads, hot food, chef prepared, sweets, diet, cheese etc. The entertainment was rep organised miming to west end show music, they did try and some people like this sort of stuff but we were much happier sitting outside enjoying a drink and chat under the outside heaters. The sister hotel is just up the road if you want to venture out for alternative entertainment. Take a warm jacket for clearly morning and evenings at the time of year. Anyway we loved it yet again and we are hard to please 5star travellers Overall this holiday was fantastic and we have rebooked for next Feb.More
