This sea-view hotel hugs the beach and comes with a great pool scene, too. Plus it’s got 3 top restaurants.
The grounds at this smart, whitewashed hotel lead straight on to the sands of Esquinzo de Jandia Beach. There are 4 pools, too – 3 for adults, 1 for children. One of them even has an island-based cocktail bar.
For meals, you’ve got a buffet restaurant and an à la carte place on the seafront. After dinner, there are live evening shows, and a choice of 5 bars.

Myself and my partner stayed in the hotel Last August and enjoyed it so much we booked again and arrived back yesterday. After reading all the reviews about club lookea etc I was getting a bit worried it had all changed.... The hotel, weather, food, service, cleanliness had improved in my opinion. They have refurbished and extended the La Choza Restaurant on the beach front which was much improved with a lot more selection of food and more space outside to eat in shade. The food and drinks were at the same high standard and was always quickly replenished and was always fresh. The hotel grounds still spotless and well kept and always saw people working to fix things, or painting. The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels everyday. The beach is a short walk away from the restaurant and is amazing! I only have one negative which let the hotel down from our last visit and that was Club Lookea. In my opinion they have taken the hotel down a peg. The big signs for 'Club Lookea' around the pool spoil the surroundings. They were very rowdy and only seemed to speak to you if you had a red lookea band on otherwise they would ignore you. If you have them as the sole entertainment they have to include the entire hotel regardless of nationality. The night entertainment was awful, with really bad miming and the sound guy did an awful job. It was a lot better last year with the old team. That was our only gripe so if you are just after good weather, nice food and keep to yourself to yourself it's a winner. The hotel is beautiful inside and out and I would still recommend it to people they just need to get rid of club lookea!! More
Not what it says on the tin!!
Arrived at the airport at 8pm - on the bus at 9pm - arrived at the hotel at 10.20pm. Check in was normal, apart from the language barrier as French or German seem to be understood no problem, but English leaves people looking bemused. I was told to leave the luggage at reception, where the porter would deliver to my room on the back of a golf buggy - this works fine and it got to the room before I did. The hotel grounds are good but the pool area is filthy. Only once in my 2 week stay did the pool area get washed down. The pool attendant is constantly sticking pool tiles back down in all the pools (all of which seem colder than the North Sea). There was plenty of sunbeds when I arrived, but all the beds with shade were reserved early mornings, leaving a handful dotted around the pool which were mostly broken. The music around the pool is only played when the Aqua Gym is on, or other games being played around the pool. There are 3 other pools to sit around if you don't want to hear it. My main problem is the hotel dining facility - Over 1200 guest were in the hotel last week, who all seemed to want lunch at the same time in the restaurant at the bottom end of the hotel, which can only cater for 300 at a time. Why not open the main restaurant at lunch times??? Gentlemen must wear long trousers for Dinner, and I witnessed new comers being turned away, although people from the naturist zone seemed allowed to wander around in long linen gowns and hats - I wouldn't take my kids here as several guest all commented on one particular naturist who seemed to be 'grooming' young girls and kids. The main part of the hotel in on the third floor up a long steep hill. The lift doors open in between floors and are often out of order, so I walked the stairs every time. The night entertainment is mostly done by the Lookea entertainment team, who mime to things like Grease, but they can't speak English, so end up looking like gold fish. I never accept the star ratings for hotels in Spain or Canaries as being similar to the UK, but I stayed in the Elba Carlota in Caleta last year, and wished I had returned instead of trying somewhere that is in desperate need of new furniture, painting and a general update. All the furniture in the hotel reception and restaurant is very old conservatory style cane furniture with worn out cushions. One last point - The all inclusive drinks package is very poor, no equivalent Malibu or Baileys and very very cheap vodka that gave everyone stomach cramps. As soon as a number of us stopped the vodka, our stomach aches stopped - Even one of the waiters told me that the quality of the drink is and I quote 'Terrible'.More

Do not go to this hotel Unless you like club 18-30
the hotel its self is well presented if a little spread out. They do give you a map to get round. The food is very good. BUT there is a French tour operator that has taken over the resort, playing very loud 18-30 style music all day. Their guests are favoured by the staff. It might be all inclusive but try and get a waiter to bring you a drink unless you have a red looke band is near on impossible. There are no bins around the resort so cups, nappies, empty water bottles are left laying around. We were late a late check out and was told that there is no where to wash and change before we caught our flight home. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel I have stayed at 2 stars that have a courtesy room for guests to use. On the whole the holiday was good but because of the French tour operator we sent most of our time on the beach as we wanted a quiet holiday not a magaluf style one. First choice should have warned us about this before we booked it. If you want a quiet relaxed holiday avoid this hotel at all costs The beds are very hard but the rooms a large and clean and the maid service is good. There is advertised free wifi but the hotel demands money for the access codeMore

Brilliant stay just remember trousers!
We have just returned from a great stay at the princess. The hotel was immaculate throughout and was constantly being attended to. The food was of a good standard as the hotel was catering for so many people and nationalities. Weather was perfect nice and hot with a slight breeze so that you do not overheat! Our only negative was when we arrived on the first evening at 9 we were told to go to the restaurant for food which we tried to do. The restaurant manager was very rude to us and gestured that we needed to leave as my husband was wearing shorts, which he has travelled in. The manager would not let us in and kept gesturing us to leave and basically pushed us out of the door. We went to reception and said we would have trousers for the following evening but not at this moment the lady on reception called down and arranged food for us. Just be aware the trousers for dinner rule here is very strict unlike any other hotel. It is nice to have dinner in a bit of formality but if you do not bring trousers and shorts u will not be given any food. Overal we had an amazing time and would definatly return.More

Fantastic location with idyllic beach and good pools
We booked to go to celebrate our 25 wedding Anniversary. We had a fantastic holiday with fantastic weather in a fantastic location. The food was good, although the waiting staff got slower and slower as the weeks progressed but not a major problem. I got ill after 4 days with Gastorentiritis and I cannot fault the medical help I received from the Doctor at the Hotel and staff at the Clinic. Also cannot fault cleanliness of Rooms and chambermaids. One disappointment, which we have since found out, one of our sons emailed hotel and asked if anything could be done as it was our 25th Wedding Anniversary etc, but this was ignored which was upsetting for both him and us, but never the less we would probably come back.More
