This adults-only hotel gives you a peaceful pool scene and a beach on the doorstep. And the food’s first class, too.
This stylish hotel is tucked at the foot of a mountain, just metres from sandy Playa Taurito Beach. Its two pools come with first-class sea views. There’s a seafront restaurant, too.
In the evenings, live acts take to the stage, or you can retreat to the piano bar for a quiet cocktail. When you feel like going further afield, there’s a shuttle bus to pretty Puerto Mogan, which is less than 5 minutes away.

A firm favourite adults only hotel
A true bolt hole in the sun! Have visited many times and it just gets better! Best all inclusive, all day, food and drink we have experienced. Superb staff, lovely quiet rooms with private terraces, all overlooking the sea catching full afternoon sun! If arriving late night a perfectly adequate cold cuts spread is available in the restaurant, unlike many other all inclusive hotels! Can thoroughly recommend!More

We always go toSuite Princess in May or September. This year it was our first time in February and it was wonderful! It is a pity there is no heating in the room, because the mornings and and evenings, we found it rather cold. But that was sonn forgotten, because about 10 o'clock there was sun downstairs and we could sit, have coffee and later on have lunch in out T-shirt. And it was really warm, unbelievable in the beginning of February ! We did like it so much, we certainly hope to do it again next year. We always take the upgrade and we think it is well worth the money, because of al the extra's and we get the room we like best. This time it was on the 6th floor, low number. The Wi-Fi was very good this time and the food great like always. We don't understand why people are sometimes complaining, we are always very happy in Suite Princess. The staff is very helpful and nice. the rooms are beautiful and clean, the shuttlebus to Mogan is very convenient. And the weather is in Februar so much better than in Holland !More

A much needed break in the Sun
We were recommended this hotel by some friends who had visited on a number of occasions -it met all our expectations of a break for a couple. Ensure you book the upgrade for branded drinks - local drinks not recommended. Plus private transfers rather than spending over 75 minutes on the Thomson bus that drops off at numerous hotels before this one.More

A bit too intimate for our liking
This was our second visit to Gran Canaria but our first visit to Playa Taurito and a Princess Hotel Hotel Suite Princessâ¦ This is a very popular âCouplesâ hotel (most of our transfer coach disembarked here) offering an All-Inclusive package with the ability to Up-grade! The fifteen or so couples we arrived with were dealt with quickly and efficiently whilst enjoying a refreshing glass of Cava. We had only booked a Junior Suite but were nicely surprised to realise, on talking to other guest, that we had been given a free up-grade to a Superior or Deluxe Junior Suite (Room 8019) which was much appreciated thank you Princess we were very lucky. This room was spacious and well equipped with all the usual plus Fridge, Kettle & Tea making facilities (which we had to restock ourselves), Water, Wine on arrival, Bathrobe & Slippers (why are these only ever in small size?), 3 beach/sunbed towels etc. (we only found out later that lesser rooms had to pay for the use of sunbed towels) There was an additional single bed and a three piece suite inside the room plus 3 sunbeds, 3 chairs and a table on the large balcony area outside. The bathroom was a well-appointed 5 piece suite except for the bath/shower screen which made it difficult to fill the bath without getting in and for anybody over 6ft tall taking a shower you would splash over the top onto the bidet, the vanity mirror was a nice touch. Sadly the tiles holding the towel hooks behind the door was on the verge of falling off and we were afraid to use them. Generally the room was all very nice except for the Air Con which badly needed cleaning it was filthy and therefore unhealthy! The daily room service was very good and much appreciated. Things were all going so well until we found thatâ¦ Outsideâ¦ The poolside areas were so very crowded with the sunbeds packed extremely close together. This did not lend itself to a romantic time for âCouplesâ and we felt that we were invading other couples space all the time. Also the sun did not appear in this area until 10am onwards yet beds were reserved with towels etc. from 7am and if you got there at 10am there were few empty sunbeds remaining to select from! Restaurantsâ¦ The dining areas were not much better with tables that were so close to each other that we felt that we were sharing with everybody else rather than enjoying a private meal for two (there was more space between tables outside if you wanted to share with the smokers that is). The limited space in both of these areas did not adequately allow for the numerous walking sticks and Zimmer frames required by the generally elder clientele Reps and Staffâ¦ All the Thompson Reps we spoke with were very approachable and helpful. The staff were all very pleasant if sometimes a little too efficient snatching anything that even remotely looked finished with and whisked it away. Foodâ¦ This was typical buffet offering (we did not realise that there were themed nights as this was kept so low key) with a good variety of meat, fish and vegetarian offerings. Everything was nicely cooked, albeit sometimes a little cold, and well presented with new supplies coming out frequently. They cater very well for a Gluten Free diet but not so well for a diet suitable for Diabetics everything was so very sweet, Linda the Rep we spoke to about this agreed as her brother was a diabetic and she understood the needs and requirements. I just had to choose carefully from a limited choice so not too much of a problem really. But you could eat and drink from morning until night if you so desired Entertainmentâ¦ The daytime entertainment was hard to find as nobody came around to try and get us to join in (activities and times were clearly displayed on the notice board) but unless you were clock watching you would miss them even if you did know where to go to find them! The evening entertainment was very poor indeed, advertised as âProfessional Showsâ but they were just elaborate karaoke, everybody used backing tracks and added their own vocals and instruments over the top. Funky Time were so-so with great costumes, King of the Jungle was very athletic, the Bee Gees gave me the heebie gee bees, Abba were not the dancing queens we hoped for, Flamenco Fashion was dramatic but without Spanish spice, One hopes that this was just for the winter season and that things would be better in the summer but somehow we doubt this very much. On chatting to people who had been to this hotel many times over the years it appears that cost cutting is the key, the entertainment used to be of a very high standard but is only average to poor now. For us the only entertainment worth watching/listening to was âHattie & Ozâ aka âChris & Johnâ who played a wide variety of songs to suit all tastes, Johnâs guitar work was excellent and his vocals added fine harmony, Chrisâ vocals were extraordinary and his guitar work added great tones. Well worth checking out before they check out at the end of April and return to Glastonbury Drinksâ¦ The Bars were all OK, mainly help yourself in the daytime and in the restaurants, with full service in the bars during the evening. There was plenty to choose from with the local spirits and cocktails (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) plus all sorts of soft drinks not to mention a wide range of teas and coffees. The toilet facilities close to the main drinks bars were very limited and queues quickly formed at the busy times (often it was quicker and easier to go back to our room!) Extraâsâ¦ The cost of upgrading to a âBlack Wristbandâ for the branded drinks was â¬294 or Â£210 per couple per week, not cheap when you have already paid for the local drinks within your All Inclusive Package! The brochure states âFree Wi-Fiâ and âFree Wi-Fi Zonesâ but you try and find them, I failed miserably all week. You can of course buy a Wi-Fi package at â¬19 or Â£14 for a week for a single device. This is the equivalent of â¬82 or Â£60 per month - not cheap! If, as a couple, you choose to up-grade to Branded drinks and add Wi-Fi for a device each you can add about â¬458 or Â£330 a week to the cost of your holiday We chose to manage without either as for the amount of use we would make of it, it would just not be worth it. Playa Tauritoâ¦ A small but adequate beach, a lido/waterpark, a selection of touristy type shops etc. for the half dozen or so Hotels in the area plus a picturesque fitness track/garden walk (there was very little else in the way of walks to work off your breakfast or dinner though) but there was little or no traffic to disturb you. To summariseâ¦ Did we enjoy our short break? Yes, we made to most of it. Would we go there again? No, it is not for us. Would we recommend it? Sadly No, because it has so much unfulfilled potential without you having to pay for all those extras. Romantic Couples or Party Couples? Definitely Party Couples as it was impossible to be romantic when so closely surrounded/packed in. Is it a TTTT+ Hotel? Maybe it was in the past but now only worth TTT+ or TTTT at most as it is showing its age and quality.More

Nice vacation - but can be improved.
So we have just come home after a nice and relaxing holiday here during week 12. At arrival, everything was ready for us and check-in went quite smooth â we got room 7029, which is recommendable, but from what we could see, most rooms had a wonderful seaview. Some of the rooms at ground level was however a bit obstructed by various object, so the views from those might not be that fantastic. We however could not complain â the view was simply fantastic. For starters, this is not a new hotel, so donât expect everything to be shiny new. It is however a very clean hotel, both inside (including your room), but also outside areas. The bed in the room was acceptable, though it is one mattress and might be a bit too soft for some which results in you being able too feel every time your partner turns around. One thing we noticed right away, is that thereâs a lot of seniors staying at this hotel. I would estimate that the amount of seniors 60+, was 60-70%, this is not a bad thing, they know how to behave unlike many younger people, it was more of an observation, and we had quite fun talking about how to spend your retirement ï The food was quite good for a buffet, but as always, you will eventually get tired of it. Thereâs very little to no alternatives for dining out in the areas surrounding the hotel, you will have to drive 10 minutes to Puerto Mogan for that â and thereâs a lot to choose from there. Do yourself a favor and spend a couple of evenings in Mogan, it is a beautiful place. The pool areas is also ok, not for exorcise swimming, but expect to be close to the ones lying on sunbeds next to your â the pool area actually feels a bit too small, not the pool itself, but the area around it. To some people, the private sphere might feel a bit violated here. Also you will have to get up early if you want to make sure that you get sunbeds at a specific location. Many other places we have been, with all inclusive, thereâs always been a problem with Russians and their behavior (lack off manners, noisy etc.) â this was not a problem here at all, as there were no Russians at the hotel or at least we didnât note them. The all inclusive phrase should be taken with a grain of salt. It is possible to upgrade this to a âpremiumâ all inclusive which give you access to some more benefits in terms of specific bottles of wine, water in your room etc. Is it worth it? - no I donât personally think so. The wine you get in the ânormalâ all inclusive is not of the best. It doesnât taste bad, it does just not really taste of much (quite thin in all aspects), and that is for both the red rosÃ© and white. The beer was ok and also the Cerva and sangria. The extra price you pay for the premium is in my view better spent on buying some better wine when dining. The top red wine at the hotel costs 20â¬, a Rijoa gran reserva. Also you could pay for various extra services, which to me would normally be included in all inclusive â but it made me feel a bit like they want to press those extra â¬ out of you in any way possible. That is not something I personally like. The internet at the hotel needs mentioning. It was in one word âterribleâ. For one week of internet, the charge was 19â¬, and for that amount you get bad coverage, a unstable connection and extremely low or no speed at all. Even the simplest of operation could take minutes, if you were not loosing your connection in the meantime. The best time to be using internet was before 8am in the morning, or past 22pm in the evening. But after paying 19â¬, we felt ripped-off for something that bad and that actually drags down in our overall view of the hotel and stay. The staff at the hotel was exceptional. Always friendly and smiling and doing a lot to satisfy guests â this really gives a good impression and their way of being positive is something I would like to emphasize â so that is also something which I hope management knows is very valuable and should by all means strive to keep it that way. Why only 3 "stars"? I would have given this 3 1/2, but that isn't possible. Had the internet been working in a satisfactional way - I would have given this hotel 4.More
