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.
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.
This hotel is spotless. Great staff in all areas. Good food and great location.close to everything .Great bus service to other resorts . Lots of Sun loungers ,great pool ,wellness centre,. Most rooms have a walk in shower but no bath I was not aware of this and because of arthritic pain it's essential .
I explained this to reception staff and was immediately offered a room with a bath ! Would definitely return .More
I really enjoyed my time here with my girlfriend.
Every part of the hotel is spotless. The staff are very nice and helpful. Breakfast is brilliant with lots of choice. The wellness area is perfect to relax and spend time in at the end of a long day's sunbathing. It is a useful gym, although it is limited in machines it was everything I needed to sweat off the calories from my morning pancakes and chocolate breakfast.
On the negative side I'd have to be very picky. It is quite a walk from the beach and there is no nice restaurants or bars anywhere near by but everything is within a cheap taxi ride. Also, the bar by the pool is a lot more expensive per drink, compared to the bar less than 30 metres away which is situated just inside the building.
I loved my holiday here and I am looking at staying at another princess hotel next year.More

Just returned from a weeks family holiday at this fab adults only hotel. A very smart modern hotel with very accommodating management and staff. Rooms were spotless and modern and serviced every day. Only negative were the beds, which we found too hard and a little uncomfortable.
We stayed half board and food was incredible, nothing was too much trouble. The choice could not be faulted whatever your tastes all were catered for. Each evening there was a different theme with plenty of choice.
Lovely swimming pools and spa. Organised daily entertainment around the pool and a variety of performing acts in the evenings.
The hotel has adopted a no-smoking policy within the hotel, but sadly this does not extend to the areas around the swimming pools, although it does state that there is a designated smokers area around the spa area, but sadly this is not enforced.
If you are looking for a quiet restful holiday with a little extra comfort then this is the hotel.More

Good Hotel but not Platinum.....Yet
We had a lovely stay here. First impressions of hotel were very good. Check in easy and welcoming. Room was spacious and view from balcony was over rooftops. Had a super King size bed but found it quite hard to sleep on because on closer inspection it was a mattress put on two single divans pushed together....not good. We found all the staff very friendly and good at their jobs but found there were not enough bar staff working in the cocktail bar during the evening entertainment, so the staff working were rushed off their feet and customers were left waiting a long, long time to get served, or had to queue at the bar....not good. Standard of food was good but the restaurant lay out and lighting was more like a cafeteria which is fine for breakfast, but not for the evening meal. There was an outside terrace with candlelit tables but it was an enclosed space and very warm in the evening. Pool area was great and the pool bar was lovely, although the club type music played all day long wasn't very relaxing.A different list of music each day would have been better as some music was repeated more than once on the same day! The outdoor entertainment area was fantastic.You could even watch the evening shows from inside the hotel.Very impressive! The shows were some of the best we've seen in the Canaries.Lots of daytime activities too for those interested. Just one or two minor problems corrected and this could be a Platinum star hotel.More

Lovely hotel, great staff
We arrived after evening food service but were told to go to restaurant and have some food!! Great start! Quick and easy check in. Word to the wise, check the fridge in your room as if it is already open you wont need to pay the extra cost!! Rooms were big enough for what you need. Very clean. If you do like a cup of tea first thing take a travel kettle as there isn't one in the room, otherwise they do supply a great selection of drinks in the restaurant. We were on the 7th floor and got a great FREE wifi signal without having to pay for the upgrade.The restaurant has a superb selection of dishes available for breakfast and evening meals.
Outside area is extremely nice and clean. A great pool area with loungers available without having to rush down first thing in a morning!
I had a superb holiday here and loved the easy access to taxi and bus services to nearby towns and villages.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and have already done so!More
