This adults-only hotel gives you a peaceful pool scene right in the heart of Playa del Ingles.
The Gran Canaria Princess had a total refurb in November 2013. It’s re-emerged as a thoroughly modern, adults-only hotel with bold colour schemes and designer fittings. Plus it still has its 2 lagoon pools.
The hotel has 2 restaurants, while after-dinner entertainment comes in the form of live music and shows. Location-wise, it’s in the heart of Playa del Ingles with the beach a 10-minute walk away.

2 outdoor pools
You'll be able to see the sand dunes when sunbathing around here. And if you're travelling in the winter months, then don't worry, one of the pools is heated.
Coco Loco bar*
Right in the middle of the 2 pools. If you want to cool off in the shade, then this is the place. Pour yourself cocktails, soft drinks and even sangria - you can take your drinks out to the pool or stay in the bar. It's up to you.
Live music plays here 3 nights a week during the winter months.

Fantastic Hotel - Will Definitely Go Back
Where to start. I stayed here for 15 nights from 15th to 30th December 2014. The hotel looked great and very modern from the photos and I was looking forward to seeing if it would match up in real life. On arrival I instantly knew it would. It's such a clean modern and spacious hotel. ROOMS: Good sized rooms, very clean. Lovely bathroom and showers. Fridge and safe are within the room. Beds mad and fresh towels provided daily. Odd rooms face the sea and even rooms face inland and to the pool. I think we had room 649 from memory. The only gripe at all with the room was that the beds were quite firm, but we only had a standard room and not a deluxe. They also provide you with towels for the pool area. These aren't changed daily though unless you pay a small charge. We didn't need to change ours at all though. POOL: The pools look very nice, very clean and a good size. There is a swim up style bar too. As we went out of season it was a little bit too cool for me to get in though, I don't really like the pool anyway, more of a beach man. However there was one section which was heated so you could have easily had a swim if you really wanted. There were plenty of sunbeds and space, even though the hotel was fully booked. We never had a problem getting a bed in the sun, it helps to be up early though to get the best spot. FOOD: We only had bed and breakfast booked. But all I can say is that the food was fantastic. Really high quality and a massive selection, everything you could think of. Every morning I had cereals, nuts, fruit, pork chops, fried eggs and an omelette. There was literally everything you could want and it was all very nice. We did have a gala dinner on Christmas Eve too though. This was a bit too try hard in our opinions. The lamb chops were nice but the portion was extremely small. The other courses were a bit random. It seems everyone else we spoke to about it thought exactly the same thing too. The night was well put together though and almost show like the way it was all served up, which was very entertaining. There was also free drink on this gala dinner too. STAFF: Extremely friendly, always saying hello and good morning etc. Very very helpful when you needed things too. LOCATION: Decent location, far enough away from the main bar area to avoid the noise but close enough to walk there if you wanted. We often went for walks around the area in the evening and you can reach a lot in no time at all. WIFI There is free WIFI in this hotel. You just need to ask the desk for a code and they will help you set it up if you struggle. We had it for all of our phones and out iPads too. There is also a premium WIFI service if you want to pay for high a speed connection, we didn't need this. GYM The gym is small but there is enough in there to keep you busy. I went 14 out of the 15 days I was there. 2 running machines, 2 bikes, 3-4 treadmills, a selection of weight machines and free weights with a bench. SPA There is a spa and wellness area here which is free for guests to use. We used it daily. There are four outdoor Jacuzzis, a steam room and a sauna. There is also a treatment area if you want to splash out and book something it. I think that covers it all. Basically itâs a lovely hotel that you wonât be disappointed with. A little expensive I guess but it keeps the scum away. Itâs also an adults only hotel, meaning there were no screaming kids running around, which was lovely. I will definitely be staying here again if I return to Gran Canaria. WEATHER We weren't expecting much from the weather at this time of year, but it was great. 18-27 degrees every day. A little cloudy some days but still warm enough to enjoy. Other days it was roasting hot. SOME POINTS: Free WIFI Towels provided for sunbeds Fantastic breakfast buffet Gym & Spa Free AC TIPS: -Worth taking a trip to Morgan. About 35 minutes on the bus. Almost like a mini Venice, very beautiful. -Ask for a room on a high floor for better views. -Rooms with odd number have a sea viewMore

Having stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions knowing it did require updating I decided to go after the upgrade. The front of the hotel looked very clean and modern, after entering I could see how open and minimalist every where looked. It all seemed cold to the old hotel, gonr were the comfy chairs to be replaced by firm seating. The rooms were good but be careful as no bath mat inshowers which can get very slippy. The resteraunt reminded me of a canteen with all tables in regimental lines, the food was not very warm and the trays of food were empty for long periods of time with no rush to be changed. A good tip at breakfast having never seen a queue for eggs before was to get eggs and bacon if any to make sure the rest wasnt cold, some days there was nobread. Having spent many happy hour in the past on the island bar surrounded with palm trees in comfy chairs this has been replaced by what seemed an orange hut and plastic chairs with tables so low its unenviting, sorry Tomson I cant see how you still rate this a 4star hotel I cant see me rturning sham because it was like being at home before.More

Good enough for winter break!
Hotel is recently fully upgraded. Rooms are nice. Bathroom, free WiFi and breakfast are great. Elevators seem not to match the capacity and beds are rather hard. Great value for money if compared to more expensive RIU hotels in this area. Would come here again. More
Rubenvs, The Netherlands
Stayed at hotel first week of January with another couple. The rooms were great we had a corner unit which got the sun most of the day, staff were friendly the Hotel was very clean & the grounds were spotless. The breakfast was great fruit, cereals & hot dishes. WE also had a couple of dinners which were quite nice. There were a couple of nice restaurants within walking distance. The only downside was that it was very windy most days. Also had a massage which was great.More

We come here every year as a couple or with our now grown up kids. The hotel has since had a major refurbishment since our last visit and am pleased to say it looks really good. A lot of the old fixtures have been changed in the foyer area which used to feel more homely but the space has been well utilised. The pool area has been transformed too, and its great to see the majority of the same staff there. As always with the Princess, good timesMore
