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.

We came on an all inclusive full board package deal with Thomson holidays. We found it to be a great hotel in almost every way. Well maintained, clean and with excellent food. It's a good centre to explore this beautiful island from (we did a lot of mountains hiking) though we had a hire car (which you can arrange at the hotel). We also took a hiking trip with Natour which you can also book from the hotel. Taxis and buses are a good way of getting around as well.
Our only two gripes were firstly that there is only wifi in the lobby - and you have to pay for it, and secondly that when the wind is from the west, the smell from the sewage treatment works can be very unpleasant in the southern half of the hotel complex. There is a good 3G/4G mobile network covering the hotel so if you have the right roaming contract the lack of wifi might not be a problem. And to avoid the sewage smell, make sure your room isn't in blocks 7 or 8. More
BACK FOR THE 2nd TIME AND JUST AS GOOD
Went back again due to 1st visit being so good. The wife and myself went for our wedding anniversary. Arrived 14th April and was upgraded to a sea view room as we were returning guests and it was great. Rooms very clean and the shower is great and large.
Food was of a good standard all day long and varied as well, the pools are immaculately clean with 1 heated to 26 degrees and 1 at 17 degrees.
Drinks round the pools are served in plastic glasses which I know some people are not to happy about but no broken glass round the pool areas.
All in all a great stay for the 2nd time and highly recommend the hotel.
The hotel is isolated and not a great deal nearby but this is great as far as I'm concerned as the only thing we could do was relax around the pool for a whole week, what a great way to spend a week.
A free bottle of Cava on our anniversary day in the room, a nice touch.
Beds are massive.More
I would like to thank La Palma Princess for a lovely holiday. This is a large but very well organised hotel with good food and rooms.
The room was very large and kept clean. We didn't take up the tea and coffee facilities as they required a fee. Also a fee for safe and WiFi but value of the trip was worth it for these extras.
The hotel is built along the cliff edge on the western side of the island. Beautiful setting and site, see pics.
Food was good lots of variety in buffet format and inclusive drinks were fine.
We preferred La Choza for breakfast on sunny mornings sat out next to the ocean - fantastic!
Didnt see any of the evening entertainment so can't comment on that.
Would return. More

40th Anniversary Holiday
Just back from a weeks holiday and my wife and I have nothing but praise.
We went to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary, pre arranged for flowers and chocolates to be in the room on arrival and inquired about a Ocean view room. They didn't disappoint the flowers were beautiful and the room and view were fantastic. On the day of our Anniversary we had a bottle of bubbly delivered to the room and the cleaners created a display in the bathroom with towels and flowers, a fantastic special touch.
The resort was spotlessly clean at all times, the food was excellent,the staff and service was spot on and there was always something going on regarding entertainment. The pools varied in depth and temperatures some heated.
One outstanding moment was when we were having breakfast at the outside restaurant over looking the ocean and a pod of Dolphins were swimming.
The Island is only small but is beautiful and is well worth a trip out especially the one that takes you up the mountains amazing scenery.
I would recommend this resort to both couples and families so give it a try.More
Great little island....quiet and quite remote.
I had never heard of this island when I booked my trip. I went as a singleton and wanted a quiet week of all-inclusive relaxation. This island was ideal! The hotel was about an hour from the airport and was clean, the grounds attractive and the staff welcoming and attentive. The pool temperature in April was cool, although refreshing when lounging in 22/23c temperatures during the day, there is one heated pool around which most of the guests, children and daytime entertainment tends to converge. Which was great as that left quiet areas to enjoy further away around the pool complex. Loungers are plentiful and reserving not allowed, although you get the usual idiots who just can't help themselves!! Also, on the subject of those who can't help themselves, there can be a little bit of a scrum at the bar in the early evenings trying to keep the Brits 'watered.' The guests tend to come from the UK, France, Spain and Holland and there is a nice mixture around the lounge tv in the evening enjoying champions league football. The residential complex is quite large and sprawling and I found myself discovering new routes back and forth to the restaurant and pool most days. A visit to the capital city of Santa Cruz is highly recommended but without a car, I think journeys away from the hotel would be a bit challenging due to the terrain which is quite rugged and steep. Overall a great holiday in a nice resort which I would recommend to singles and families alike. Wifi is â¬19 per week and only works in the reception area....also, it was not fast enough to download a film bought from iTunes, so I refused to pay when settling my bill.More
