Hotel Gran Canaria Princess  

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.

Lovely Hotel

Just returned from this hotel oct 27th,lovely and clean,bedroom spotless the shower was very good,no tea or coffee facilities which would have been great,didnt like the idea of having to pay for fridge and safe,my downfall on the buffet was by the time you got to your table with your food it was nearly cold so only had two meals and one breakfast there,was like a school canteen so noisy,so we ate out the rest of the holiday,sunloungers we found hard to get hold of,we saw people putting towels on them at 8.30 in the morning then going for breakfast so so cheeky that is,some of the staff were lovely,some found it hard to smile especially by the pool bar,entertainment hit and miss,drinks expensive so we went out to some other bars near the hotel which were so cheap,overall would i return to the princess no i dont think i would.More

Just gorgeous

Fabulous hotel. Well situated with just a short walk to shops or beach. Large clean rooms with clean well planned bathrooms. Plenty of mirrors, wardrobe space and very good lighting. The balcony was perfect. The facilities at the hotel are second to none and the pool area is amazing. All staff are well trained, professional and nothing is too much trouble. The staff are friendly and really make you feel welcome. The hotel is exceptionally clean and so is the bedding, towels etc. The food is good with plenty of choice and something for everyone. The buffet is replenished regularly. Eating outside was wonderful, but the dining room was nice too. This is an adults only hotel which was nice for a quieter holiday. We loved the hotel and would definitely go again.More

For one week good....but!

This is quite a big hotel, and the pool area can feel overcrowded, especially when some Scandinavian irk decided that he wanted some of the space that I was in! However, if you look around there are quieter areas to relax on a sun bed – we particularly liked to laze around where the whirlpools are, much quieter and more peaceful. For the size of place, and the number of guests, there are just not enough lifts, we were on the seventh floor, and would usually have a long wait! We initially had no complaints with the room – it was a decent size – nice balcony with a good view over to the sea. But – one night we came back and the bed linen had been changed, and there was a dirty mark on the upper sheet. It could have been a chocolate mark, blood or worse. The offending sheet was changed quite quickly, but what I had to question. Why was it left like that? It was very visible; we noticed it as soon as we entered the room. The overall impression I had was that there was never enough staff to cope, just one receptionist when we arrived to check in – and a long wait at the pool bar every time we wanted a drink. Nothing wrong with the staff – just not enough of them. Oh and a warning - don’t ask for a small beer – they are tiny! The food hall is very regimented, a bit like a canteen, we like to eat outside, and even out there the staff struggled to clear tables – often we would see people looking around for a clean table. I have to say every day and night there was a good selection of tasty food; never boring and I would think something for everyone. The hotel is just a short walk away from the beach, and a shopping centre where constant hassle from touts spoils everything. We paid extra to have the room later then the required 12 o’clock - wrongly - I assumed we could stay in the room until it was time to go! No we should have been out by six, and were politely told this by the receptionist, he even offered to read me the rules! I’m on holiday – I don’t want to here about rules! Overall we had a good holiday here, but I would not return to this hotel, I have stayed in much nicer Princess hotels in Gran Canaria.More
