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.

Lovely relaxing holiday
Arrived after dining room had closed but found a cold buffet and water provided for us in the room.. Nice touch. Check in was excellent the young man on the desk so helpful and smiled throughout check in. Helpful security man removing my husbands lock from suitcase(he had forgotton his key). Lovely room spotless, comfortable large bed and soft pillows., Brilliant shower in bathroom. Could have provided fridge and safe hire in price. Our room 743 on top floor have views over town and sea so nice to sit and look at late at night. Air conditioning spot on nice and quiet. All staff we found were so helpful and always smiled when they spoke to you. The food in restaurant was good quality plentiful and always hot. It was a pleasure to sit by the pool so relaxing no scrambling for sunbeds and the pools very inviting. Nice spa area with comfortable loungers and four Jacuzzis and a good steam and sauna. Entertainment to suit a variety of ages. The DJ was the only let down he cleared the area quickly after the shows. We went out most days using the local buses. The bus stop is right outside the hotel/regular service. The beach is about 10mins walk from hotel. Lots of bars shops in the area. Would highly recommend this hotel to people visiting Playa Del Ingles. Thank you for a excellent relaxing holiday.More
Disappointing 4 Star Rating.
We are currently staying at The Gran Canaria Princess. The hotel has been recently refurbished and is clean and well kept and the beds are comfortable, but the style is very minimalist, with clean lines and very geometrical layouts of quite clinical furniture, which does not feel at all cosy or welcoming. Air Conditioning in the rooms cuts out the moment you leave the room or open the Patio Doors. Despite the hotel claiming to have two pools, we are only aware of one, which raps around the eastern side of the hotel. The staff are all friendly, helpful and welcoming without being at all obvious. The food is plentiful, with plenty of choice, but it is not of a very high quality. The food is all buffet or cooked on a griddle in the restaurant. From a distance, the buffet looks inviting, but when you get close, the food looks less attractive, although we have always found something which we could eat and generally it tasted better than it looked. They are trying too hard with the food, but the result does not pay off. It is all clearly set up to process a lot of people rapidly. The wine is also disappointing. The evening entertainment on the pool side can certainly be heard on the 7th Floor on the South side of the hotel (odd numbered rooms). Overall, the hotel does not seem to measure up to its 4 stars, it is certainly not a 'luxury' hotel - we have been disappointed with our overall experience.More

Just home from a week holiday with my boyfriend. This hotel is really lovely. (1) The rooms were brilliant, the shower was amazing and the bed is HUGE. We had a view of the sea..not fantastic but as good as it can be in a built up area. (2) The food was great - had so much choice and never got bored of it. Different choices every night and presented beautifully. (3) The pool area is great - never had problems getting sun-beds or feeling overcrowded. The pools are lovely, with a great and good value bar in the middle with yummy cocktails.(4) Evening entertainment was a bit mediocre. Some acts were great, some were really quite bad but that may be personal taste. (5) The staff were generally very warm and welcoming and happy to help. Only one member of staff made us feel like we were a nuisance to him, and unfortunately it seems like he was a manager of some sort as he was always in a suit and not in waiting/serving uniforms like the others. Everyone was lovely though and did the hotel proud. (6) Wifi was provided free, but didn't reach room. This wasn't an issue though as I just used it when in reception or having drinks and you could pay to have a better connection if you wished. (7) The beach area in Playa del Ingles is very touristy and busy, but as the pool is so lovely we didn't spend much time at all there. One thing you must do is the Moonlight Cinema - a wonderful experience and perfect for celebrating a special occasion. We also visited Puerto Mogan which is a beautiful town. We went on Market day (Friday) so it was heaving - the market really wasn't worth it either so I would recommend going on a quiet , peaceful day. Overall the hotel cannot be faulted, and I will definitely recommend it.More
