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.

We have just come back from La Palma Princess and once again loved it. It was the 5th time and hopefully there will be a 6th. There is nothing bad we can say about this hotel and we're not the only ones who feel like this as we talked to others there who like us keep going back.More

Lovely Hotel - Second Visit

We have recently returned from this lovely hotel from our second visit. We stayed for two weeks and the second time was even better than the first time. We met many nice people and on our second week friends who we had met there last year surprised us with a visit, wonderful for us. It is really refreshing that recently the hotel is receiving the excellent reviews that it rightly deserves. The weather in the first week was good, however, the second week not so good. The entertainment team were excellent. Special mention to Nick, a really nice person and fantastic saxophone player, same for Juan-Jose, great on guitar. We joined in the many activities on offer, including boules, archery and others, My husband over the two weeks won many diplomas! Good fun. In my opinion the evening entertainment was very good, including fantastic flamenco dancers, local folklore dancers and strong men acrobatics. All the staff we encountered were extremely pleasant, a credit to this marvellous hotel. We requested the same room as last year overlooking the pretty gardens, very clean, serviced well every day and great shower. The complex itself is beautiful, numerous pools in a lagoon like setting, similar to the Caribbean and all areas are clean and pools maintained every day. The spa area and sand pool where most of the activities takes place is good. The inside bar and reception area is really stunning typical of the area, very colourful. The nightclub area is very large and a really good atmosphere about it as does the whole complex. There is a beautiful outside terrace where you can spend many pleasant hours taking in the views drinking cava! We walked around the perimeter and it is surrounded by bananas and a remote location. However, this did not bother us as we do not like commercialised places and we enjoyed the journey from the airport, albeit twisty roads. The food in the main restaurant was excellent, very tasty and the outside eating area is lovely. We enjoyed a few pizzas and these are included in the all inclusive. The late breakfast restaurant, La Choza is a great way to start the day breakfasting outside overlooking the sea. We had a fantastic holiday and will return for a third visit. I would highly recommend this gorgeous hotel. Denise and Dean, East Yorkshire.More

5th visit,not disappointed

enjoyed our 5th January visit,still a good place to chill after a hectic Xmas time. Unfortunately the chill factor weather-wise was more apparent than usual,but grateful to be away from our home freezing conditions! All the staff were exceptional, and our fantastic breakfast and lunch chef Alphonso still there working hard to please us. Still not a place for 'clubbers'etc.a walker's Paradise though and a rental car necessary for a two week stay. Being a tennis fan , disappointed that Eurosport not now on the list of TV channels this year so missed the first week of the OZ Open.More

Take slippers

The La Palma hotel is in my opinion a three star hotel with four star food. The rooms are a good size with large shower and a bath, but it feels like the floors are made of ice so bring slippers or use flip flops. The food is very good, a varied selection with a different theme in the main restaurant at dinner every evening. I preferred late breakfast in the La Chosa restaurant, less choice than the main restaurant but more individual attention (a bit picky about fried eggs). The buildings could generally do with a coat of paint but the pool is well maintained. but cold. The sauna and steam room are located in the nudist zone, so unless you want to strip off, and want a sauna the spa charges 10 euros per day. The evening entertainment was generally quite good with a featured act in one room, a guitarist/saxophone player in the piano bar and a large flat screen showing various football games. All inclusive drinks are ok, branded e.g. large jamesons cost 2euro 30 extraMore

Excellent holiday

Having read the reviews on this hotel over the past few months since booking,I began to wonder if we had made the right decision! Not being a good passenger and afraid of heights, I was really worried about the "really scary,winding road journey "from the airport. This was a bit bendy and high but both the coach drivers were excellent-driving slowly and carefully and don't forget they do it all the time.No problem there. The hotel sits at the base of the mountain and has wonderful views around it. It is isolated but that adds to it's charm and tranquillity. The hotel and grounds are very clean,very comfortable and very spacious. The food is excellent with a good choice of meals and we had breakfast and lunch on the terrace by the sea-indeed something we in England can't do that often with our climate! A treat. Entertainment was ok- the resident team work so hard both during the day and in the evening- always smiling,and their shows were in fact quite good.The professional acts were very good -entertaining and varied We found very few flies to swat-sit outside in England on a sunny day and you get the same and we are not surrounded by banana plantations. The complex is very hilly,with lots of steps so be aware. My negatives----Due to the fact that our plane was unable to land at 2.30ish pm due to bad weather we were diverted to Tenerife where we stayed for a few hours at the terminal and then coached to the north of the island to a hotel for the night .We all had only a few hours sleep before we were up at 4am ,with coffee and cake or bread for breakfast ,to return to La Palma on the 8 am flight. On arrival at the hotel ,very tired and hungry ,we had to queue at reception for ages as there was only one person for quite some time on the desk.There were about 40 of us (did they know we were coming?).There was no welcome drink,no sandwiches and no offer of a restaurant remaining open for us to have a breakfast.Due to the long wait to check in ,the late breakfast venue was shut and a couple of hours to lunch. Not the sort of welcome that I expected!Be prepared Mr Manager,this has happened before so where is your customer care and service in this instance? Would definitely go again,good place to chill out and relax. More
