Hotel La Palma Princess & Spa  

It’s all about the pools here – the hotel has a jaw-dropping 11. Great sea views top things off.

Pools are a major focus, with 11 in all, including a huge one with bridges. Food-wise, there’s a buffet restaurant, a place specialising in Canarian cuisine, and a late-breakfast venue with fabulous sea views.

This cliff-top hotel is a real get-away-from-it-all place – you’ve just got the surrounding banana groves and the Atlantic Ocean below for company. When you want to get out and about, though, there’s a bus stop outside.

Great winter sunshine break in lovely island hotel.

This was our third enjoyable stay in this friendly hotel. We love the fabulous facilities from the spa and swimming pools to the landscaped gardens which enhance the wonderful sea and mountain views. This hotel is great for complete relaxation offering as it does many areas for lying in sun or shade by the many palm fringed pools overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. There was a full programme of family entertainment in the evenings but we preferred to listen to the entertaining jazz piano and sax duo who played in the lounge every night. We were confident when we booked this holiday knowing from previous visits that we can enjoy swimming outdoors in Feb. in wonderful surroundings, eat all we could want from a choice of hotel restaurants (our favourite was La Chosa with it's terrace overlooking the sea), stay in well appointed clean rooms with friendly attentive staff. Our holiday offered very good value at this time of year when the hotel was not too crowded and the all inclusive package meant no extra costs. We recommend you do as we did and hire a car to explore the island independently although you can arrange tours from the hotel. The hotel is situated on the sheltered south west coast and we found that we enjoyed a week of almost continuous sunshine when the rest of the island had rain and even snow on the mountainous interior. We will certainly book to come again for another relaxing week in glorious surroundings.More

Great hotel. Great holiday.

Hotel was fantastic. The pools,rooms etc. were just brilliant. The island wasn't for me with its mountainous terrain and roads but we had a great holiday. The spa was great with friendly and caring staff. The rooms were very spacious and clean. It's a huge complex but very clean and 5* in my mind. Thomson were great throughout More


Nice hotel but very remote

beautiful views across the Atlantic . Unfortunately not from all rooms although these rooms can be purchased at a premium. Food mostly good via buffet restaurant service although odd days did disappoint. Pool area with 11 pools is really attractive and never a problem to get a sunbed. Wi Fi is chargeable and a little unreliable so I am told. Thomson rate this hotel 5*. I think 3* is a fair assessment. The hotel is very much on its own and miles from anywhere so if you want a holiday by the pool and to stay inside the premises, this is for you. Entertainment is reasonable and plenty for the kids to do. We arrived with about 150+ other guests on coaches all at the same time. It appeared that no additional help was offered or available to reception staff and check in took over one hour. This was not satisfactory. Additionally, Thomson information states the hotel is serviced by 4 lifts. None of these actually appear to service the accommodation blocks and with three levels, that's a lot of stairs to carry your cases up to.More

Beautiful Hotel in stunning location

This hotel is in a beautiful but isolated position overlooking the sea. The gardens and landscaping are superb and the public areas are spacious and well furnished and wonderfully decorated. Our room had plenty of space and a bit of a sea view though we hadn't paid extra for the full view, but we enjoyed looking out over the beautiful palm trees and hibiscus hedges.. The daily cleaning service was very good, although a very windy night towards the end of our stay left the floor a bit gritty, with what blew in underneath the door. The hair dryer provided only had one heat setting which was very hot, and if I hadn't been worried about baggage allowance I would have brought my own. The choice of cuisine was extremely good for an all inclusive and being able to serve your own wine and soft drinks is a good idea. the staff were all polite and helpful. We hired a car for the whole of our stay as there was lots on the island we wanted to see and we aren't in to sunbathing all day long, though for those who are, there were plenty of sun loungers to go round. The pools are beautiful, but my only gripe was that the water was too cold to swim in. A pity they can't devise a system of solar heating for at least one or two of them for the cooler months. Didn't test the entertainment at all, as by the time we had been out all day doing strenuous walks and had a drink at the bar and dinner with wine, we would have had a job staying awake. Would certainly recommend this hotel to others and looks like one of our daughters and her husband might try it themselves next winter.More

Lovely hotel,good value .

We spent a week at the La Palma Princess at end of February 2015 on Thomson all inclusive. Beautiful hotel,well kept with fabulous swimming pool area although only one is heated.Spectacular cliff top views over the Atlantic,next stop America! The restaurant and bar areas are all very spacious and the staff all try hard to please. The food was all very good with plenty of choice on a self service basis. Rooms are well equipped and of a good standard. Mainly older couples at this time of year,few children and no exciting night life to attract younger adults. The hotel is isolated and surrounded by banana plantations so really a hire car is best way to get out and see the island ,the hire rates are very reasonable but the driving challenging on twisty roads.There is limited public transport but plenty of organised excursions. There is only limited chargeable Wifi in the reception area which could a problem for people who need to keep in touch with work. Overall we can highly recommend this hotel and felt it was very good value .It is an ideal place for a relaxing break and some winter sun.We would definitely make a return visit. Jay (theThomson rep) was very helpful and knowledgable. One gets the impression that the management are very keen to encourage returning customers and many that we spoke to had been several times before which is always a good sign.More
