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.

You get what you pay for

Let's start with the good stuff: Room: very clean, spacious, very quiet, slept like a baby, amazingly powerful shower. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking gardens but there were sea view rooms which looked nice but the sun would be on the room for most of the day so may get rather hot. Pool area: again very clean, plenty of choice of beds and quiet areas. All the pools looked amazing with some heated. It was low season when we went and I can imagine it getting very very busy by the pool in high season. Thomson: the flight, transfers and Jay, the Thomson rep, were all brilliant. All Inclusive: Average beer and wine on free pour taps as was soft drinks and water. The non alcoholic frozen cocktails went down well in the heat of the day. The buffet restaurant had loads of choice. The smaller pool side breakfast area was a much better choice than the main buffet area. Worthwhile seeking the quieter areas in the buffet restaurant so as to not feel like being in a canteen The island trips: worth going on just so you get to see the lovely island. The hotel is a long way from anything so you really don't get to appreciate the island from the resort. Now what was not so good: The drinks: shockingly bad cocktails. Some of the local spirits were undrinkable. We decided to upgrade to Premium which gave us branded drinks but most of the staff did not understand the premium arrangements and there were still drinks that were not available which we would have had to pay for The extras: wifi was extra but even then was not available in the rooms. You could only get on line in the reception area. If you wanted to use the spa this was extra. Kettle and safe were extra too. The al a'carte restaurants: only one was available out of season which was disappointing but the food was excellent. There is a 15euro supplement per person to eat there. The entertainment: the quality was really quite poor. We did have a laugh listening to some of the entertainers because they were so bad! Overall we had a great holiday, loved the island and had great weather. It was worth what we paid but we have been to better all inclusive hotels but they have cost more.More


Last minute holiday

Only booked this holiday because our holiday to sharm el sheik was cancelled so had to choose a alternative . it's on a complex so nothing around it apart from banana groves. It's takes one hour from the airport to the hotel along winding roads . On arrival had to que for 45 min to get our room key because four more buses turned up at the same time . The rooms are a good size if not a little dated good power shower though beds are a decent size but mattress very hard no tea making facilities unless you want to pay 3 euros a day to have it in your room meal are buffet style with plenty of choice for everyone . Entertainment most evenings also for the children. The pools are fantastic plenty of sunbed and again plenty to eat and drink around the pool if you're looking for a relaxing break this hotel is ideal . Was not dissatisfied with our choice and would recommend it .More

Sue M,

Top Banana

We really enjoyed our chill out 10 days in this Thomson stronghold. Everything about it suited us down to the ground. Set in the middle of a huge banana plantation at the base of an old volcano the huge resort offered us everything we needed. Large comfortable room, a sensible AI regime, good food and lots of choice. The weather was ideal. The 11 large pools, including one outdoor heated, the ample shading, clean new beds, and two good beach bars meant we spent most of the day outside. The staff were professional and helpful even while under stress at busy times. All in all a great value for money holiday. Wheelchairs face very steep ramps, and there are no lifts in accommodation blocks.( 2 floors only)More

Lovely pools, good food and relaxing

Fifth time we have stayed at this hotel. Had a large sea view room. There are 11 pools at this hotel one of which is acclimatised. There is a good choices of food in the main restaurant which has a different country theme every night. We find the best place for breakfast is the outside restaurant near the pool for the best crispy bacon ever. Found the staff very friendly and helpful particularly as am trying to learn to speak Spanish. The hotel is a little isolated but the island is small enough to get around in reasonable time with a hire car. I would recommend this hotel.More

Excellent place to stay, friendly staff, nice location, views and amenities. Great food and quality evening entertainment. The room was big, quiet and comfortable. The only pity that there is no free internet around. More
