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 two lagoon pools.
The hotel has two 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.
You'll find Coco Loco bar right in the middle of the two 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.
We booked the Gran Canaria Princess half board through Thompson as a last minute get away in July 2014. The whole hotel had recently been refurbished to a very high standard, everything was lovely and modern. There was a lovely big pool with lots of sunbeds and shaded areas as well as a pool bar. There was a separate jacuzzi/ steam room/ sauna area with some more sunbeds where the massages were given. This area was nice and quiet with calming music.. Found it really relaxing! The gym only had a few cardio and weight machines but was adequate for a quick holiday workout. The food was lovely both for breakfast and dinner with a great selection! The evening entertainment varied from Pole Dancing to Tribute Groups.. All were of a great standard. Would definitely stay again. More
Loved the hotel, resort very rundown looking
Staying at this hotel now and enjoying our holiday here. Everywhere is spotless and very well maintained. The pool area is lovely and there's no problem getting a sun bed.
Only negative is you are given towels for the pool in your room on arrival but if you want fresh ones daily you have to change them at the pool for 1.30â¬, really no need to charge for this surely!
The door cards failed constantly to open our door most times we got back to the room , we were told this was maybe because it was kept in my handbag with my phone ( magnetic interference) , well who goes out with 2 bags, one in each hand ?
Only a 10 min stroll down to the beach or big Yumbo centre full of restaurants and bars.
Playa del ingles the resort is very run down looking on the beach front, seriously needs updating, would not come to this resort again , Puerto Rico is much nicer. More
Had a super experience at this hotel. The wellness area is excellent, sheltered from the wind, oriental music playing and the hot tubs are usually not being used. The food in the restaurant was very good, quite an extensive menu, lots of choices of restaurant quality, particularly good for a buffet. Is an adult only hotel, which was good, there were a few groups of young adults which I wouldn't say we're best suited to the hotel. Is a quiet hotel although the entertainment team do run classes like yoga etc in the morning. Lifts are slow during busy times, however, there is a small lift to the left but you need to press the button individually to call it. Also, items can be charged to your room, drinks etc, however, when I went to settle the bill there was a transaction for over â¬20 which had been charged to my room but was clearly not my signature. The hotel took it off but think that was only because I had been in the main restaurant and signed for my drink when the other charge was put on. Felt very safe within the hotel, point to note the lock for the balcony door is a bolt at the top right of the door that slides.More

My girlfriend and I spent a week at the hotel and we were definately pleased with the stay.
The room was nice with a comfortable bed, good view and pleasant interior. The food at the hotel was varied and while nothing exceptional still good.
The gym was a bit small but wasn't very crowded and contained the essentials.
Finally the staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly.
We would recommend this hotel. More
Surprisingly good !!
Was not sure what to expect from the hotel given the mixed reviews on here . But it was good and we will return . We stayed during Easter week .
The Rooms are modern and of decent standard we had a nice big bed , shower worked fine too. The maids do a great job at cleaning them and are very friendly . The Hotel is clean through out .
The buffet was good , food fresh , good variety and waiting staff friendly and dressed
The Pool area was no problem getting loungers if you wanted to. sleep in which was really important to us. There is a small gym which is modern and is adquate for going for a run and light weights with some weight machines. The wellness area which is quiet area away from the main pool and has some nice sun loungers and a jacuzzi which was not extra too.
Overall I would stay here again and recommend it for its value too.
Negatives and i am being really choosey are the free wifi its slow works bests in the communal areas I did upgade it but it was only slightly better.
The lifts are busy at meal times so get a room on the lower floor if that's gonna annoy you .end rooms have bigger balconies, rooms could do with a kettle in the rooms .
Good hotel good value for money .Playa del ingles is what it is ,hire a car if you want to get away and visit the islands different areas, Mogan and Amadores are worth a visit .Can't really fault the hotel though .More
