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.
These traditional style rooms all feature a balcony or terrace and lots of natural light. Plus, there's satellite TV and air-conditioning. They sleep up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children with twin beds and a sofa-bed in the lounge that converts into 2 beds.

This was our fourth visit to La Palma Princess as it still never disappoints. The hotel is quite remote in its location but we like this. The setting is superb and the grounds are well maintained and very extensive and you never fell overcrowded even when the hotel is fully occupied. The staff are always polite and helpful and the rooms well maintained and cleaned.
The food is of an excellent standard and there is plenty of choice, if you have problems then you must be an extremely fussy eater. We have always found the waiters to be friendly and attentive. The Thompson Rep, Jay is very knowledgeable on most aspects of the island and its local cultures and very helpful.
The activities staff work hard and there is an extensive program for those that want to join in, rather than just sunbathe by the pools. The evening entertainment could be better and more varied but is not a disaster.
The island is magnificent and and totally unspoilt with several national parks which are well worth a visit. If you enjoy walking there is a very comprehensive network of paths throughout the island all well as a comprehensive guide. The scenery is stunning and it probably rates as one of the best Canary Isles in this respect.
We always hire a car for the duration of our stay and have found many spots which the tours will never get to. It also gives you the freedom to visit the local villages in the evening or afternoon.
We have found the drinks supplied to be reasonable, we are not cocktail drinkers, so cannot comment on those. If you want top quality wines then you will have to pay accordingly, we don't have a problem with that.
All in all an excellent hotel, with very friendly staffMore

Great Family Holiday!!
We have just returned from a week at the La Palma Princess and had a fantastic time!
The hotel Itself is lovely, beautiful views over the pools & sea, rooms are spacious and cleaned to a high standard.
The food was really good, there was a theme every night from Italian to Mexican and a La Palma night. Freshly baked croissants every morning was amazing!
All the staff were really friendly and always went out of their way to engage with our 9 month old son.
We had such a relaxing time! Lovely for families & couples alike!
The reasons I didn't give it 5 stars:
- the bar at night always had a very long queue and they often ran out of glasses. I think if there were more staff then this may improve. Or, get rid of the half board option so that people on all inclusive can help themselves to soft drinks, wine, beer & water just like in the daytime & dining rooms.
- the nighttime entertainment was really bad. If you enjoy a good evening show then you'll be disappointed. There's plenty other bar space to go and have a drink if you don't want to watch it!
Overall, we had a great family holiday and would return to the la Palma princess for a relaxing family holiday in future! More

Me and boyfriend have just come back from la Palma princess and we both had an amazing time. Really enjoyed the range of food, the fab pool area, and lovely friendly staff. We have got serious holiday blues and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone ! The island is absolutely beautiful and for us it was nice to go somewhere a bit different ! I wouldn't hesitate to go back to this hotel !! More
