This adults-only hotel gives you a peaceful pool scene and a beach on the doorstep. And the food’s first class, too.
The stylish Suite Princess is tucked at the foot of a mountain, just metres from sandy Playa Taurito Beach. Its 2 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.
Weekly gala dinner and late Continental breakfasts.
Selected alcoholic and soft drinks 09.00-24.00 - bar opening times vary.
Snacks 10.30-16.00, coffee, tea and cakes 16.00-18.00 and tapas 3 times a week.

I can't believe some of the awful reviews I'm reading. My partner and i have just got back from a 1 week stay at the Suite princess. It was fabulous. Arrived late evening and were greeted with cava and a wonderful receptionist who talked us out of room service and persuaded us to go down to dinner. Im glad he did, dinner was wonderful. If you can't find something to eat when your here then you must be a very fussy eater. I have to agree with some reviews, my pork one night was a little bit pink for my liking but it didn't phase me, i think the spanish like their meat on the pinker side. Breakfast was glorious, wide selection of cooked breakfast, cereal, yoghurts, pastries...everything. Lunch i personally felt was a little bit of a let down, mainly due to choice and was quite repetitive. Always found something though so was not awful. Some reviews i read said the restaurant was stifling hot, i didn't find this the case, yes it was warm and can imagine in the Summer its dreadfully hot. If you struggle with the heat, take a little hand held fan.
Our Room was fantastic we stayed in room 1009 which was first floor, so on the same floor as the restaurant, pool and shops. We loved being on the 1st floor as in the evening it wasn't far to go if when in the room we wanted a drink. Our room was really clean and fresh and the maid would clean the room beautifully daily. Our balcony was huge, table, chairs and 2 huge sun beds. Sun would be on the balcony from about 1:30 until sunset. What beautiful sunsets they were too.
The pool area can get very busy and yes people do get up at 6 to reserve sun beds, but we always found a spot. There is smoking areas in the hotel, but by the pool there isn't any signs so people just smoked. As smokers ourselves we felt it was nicer to ask the people sitting next to us if they minded us having a cigarette as i could see it could get on peoples nerves.
Activities around the pool were always fun, with water aerobics and pool competitions. The beach was also a very short walk away, which was lovely if you wanted a change up, with many water sports to do. As it is a public beach you do need to pay for sun beds.
Would highly recommend the free 5 course romantic meal they provide 3 nights a week, book at the main restaurant and if you have any dietary needs just let them know the day before.
Take the trip to Puerto Mogan, its breathtakingly beautiful and would also recommend the dolphin trip.
Overall a fantastic holiday and can't wait to return next year.
Also the pina colada cocktail slush puppy machine is AMAZING!!More

Fabulous hotel, good value
Stayed at this hotel from 2nd October. Food is fabulous, rooms are spacious, views are amazing, entertainment especially the two singers round the pool, "Trouble" in the day accompanied by a glass of cava is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours overlooking the sea. Staff work tirelessly, selection of drinks perfect. Adults only is lovely, met great people. Would definitely recommend... Going back next year!More

Have just returned from a fortnight at this lovely hotel. Our room was huge - spotless although the decor was quite dated we had no issues with it. Huge balcony - more like a terrace with two sunbeds and table/chairs. We got the sun from lunchtime right through until sunset - amazing. The views are spectacular.
Food was fantastic, always a large selection - the review titled "worst holiday ever" must be refering to the "sleepyhead breakfast" which is on offer in the tapas restaurant from 1030am, as the main restaurant breakfast was fresh and delicious - belgian waffles, usual fry-up items, cereal, fruits and cold meats/cheeses. Yes, the tapas breakfast is mainly pizza/nuggets, but it was a saving grace when we slept in a couple of mornings and there was always fresh fruit such as pineapple and melon available too, along with limited cheese/meat, so you didn't have to eat the pizza. Dinner time is usually busiest around 8pm, so you may have to queue for the chefs station, but it moves eventually. Cannot recommend the garlic prawns enough- delicious! We started going for dinner around 8.30pm and there were no queues (restaurant is open until 930pm). Great salads too and the puddings are fab. Make sure you book in for the romantic dinner which is on three nights each week - lovely food especially the grilled islander cheese.
Everyone reserves sunbeds (despite it being forbidden) but we never had a problem. The side of the pool nearest to the hotel gets the sun late morning so we normally picked one there. Poolside is always super clean as are all areas of the hotel.
We went on the Thomson trip to Las Palmas which is great value from this hotel as you are miles from the city and a taxi would cost a fortune. Got plenty of time to shop and access to a couple of beautiful buildings. Also would recommend hiring a jet ski from the local watersports centre on the beach - we also hired a kayak, which after capsizing at the beach a couple times was great fun - you can get to Puerto Mogan and back!
On the subject of Puerto Mogan - definintely go for a visit - beautiful town. We took a taxi there and back - around 7 euros each way, but the hotel also runs a daily bus, or you can get the local bus. If you like tapas, the "Tortuga" restaurant at the harbour had a daily special which was fantastic and I would recommend it for lunch.
If you decide to go for the free blanket tour you have to sit through an hour and half presentation about overpriced lambswool sleep products but you also get to visit the cave area and have a really reasonable tapas lunch, again, worth it as it's free!!
Can't wait to go back here- I'm glad I took fellow trip advisors advice and booked a taxi transfer from the airport - you're a fair distance - took about 40mins in the taxi instead of over an hour on the bus, luxury!More

I have just read previous review titled "worst holiday ever" and cannot believe we stayed in the same hotel a month later. Myself, my husband and two friends spent two weeks here and have nothing but praise for it. The rooms were very large, well furnished and clean and seem to be sound proofed as when the door was shut we were in complete silence. The cleaner was lovely, friendly and efficient. The food was lovely, I am not vegetarian but there was a huge choice, for breakfast, cereals, fruit, bread, cheese, yogurt, eggs, bacon etc etc Lunch and dinner were equally good, always at least two fish dishes, plenty of salad, veg, soup, meat dishes etc. Food was always hot and dishes were re filled on a regular basis even before the containers were empty. Tables were cleared very quickly and dining room was lovely and clean. There was a good supply of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks available. There were a few shops including restaurants literally outside the hotel in a lovely traffic free promenade. The entertainment in the hotel was first class, the best I have ever seen in a resort hotel. Special mention to the resident band Trouble, the Three Tennors tribute band were amazing as were several of the other acts, these were rotated every fortnight which meant a good variety of entertainment. I believe there is a free hotel bus to nearby Mogan, we never used this as we hired a car but Mogan is beautiful and worth a visit. The swimming pools were lovely, one heated. The only criticism would be there are not really enough umbrellas and as they are fixed in the ground they cannot be moved. We all had a lovely holiday and would definitely return.More
Time for relaxing
Stayed here earlier this summer and our first experience of an adults only hotel and overall it was very enjoyable . Food was good and plentiful but we didn't use the themed restaurant due to most of the menu containing cheese. Staff were helpful and friendly which was great. Evening entertainment consisted of a pianist who wasn't very good but Mick and Tracy aka Trouble were one of the best live acts we've seen in ages and you could listen to them all night which considering they were in competition with the World Cup was some achievement. Downside was the room, 2001,being the local rendezvous point for the local cockroach population! Got moved eventually to a top floor room and I'd recommend any potential visitor doing the same.More
