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.
Twin room with sea view sleeps 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children, with twin beds, a sofa-bed that converts into 2 beds and a satellite TV with limited English channels. Minibar available on request at a charge.
We had an excellent week at La Palma Princess in April.Although I wouldnt recommend it if you have fear of heights (i was scared to death on the bus on the way from the airport and back). And the entertaining is almost only for children but its something we could live with.. :) Weather and food was great, put on couple of kilos, try the home made custard cream cake. Nice holiday destination for people wanna escape from everyday life and do nothing but sunbathing and swimming. More

Just the place to relax
What a wonderful place! Just returned from 2 weeks of heaven! Everything you need just a short stroll away from your room. Food was really good with lots of choice and different themed nights throughout the week.......especially the Arabian one. Apart from a few trips out, I normally like to relax around the pool and go for the occasional walk and of course swim......but this time I got really involved with Archery, Rifle shooting, Pistol shooting, Petanque, "golf", darts, pool and table tennis.......and I am well over 60! The animation team were very professional and made everyone feel welcome, without forcing anyone to join in or walking around harassing people. No extra loud music and no need to save sunbeds before breakfast and use them in the afternoon as there are literally stacks of them if needed. Drinks good, service good, rooms good, staff good.......nothing else to say. Going back again?.......you bet!More

Second visit in two years
Another relaxing stay at an excellent hotel. Clean, well run and very comfortable. Food choice and quality was good and drinks acceptable including cava, sangria and pre mixed cocktails as well as Estrella on draught, local spirits, wine and soft drinks. Sadly the coffee was awful unless you paid for fresh coffee.
Evening entertainment was ok but three sets by acrobats in one week was overkill! In house team worked hard to keep those who wanted to take part entertained. Plenty of lounge and bar areas for those who didn't.
Can recommend the round the island highlights tour - beautiful scenery in the mountainous areas.
As returners, we enjoyed a room with sea view and were able to have late check out from our room, very handy as we didn't leave the hotel until 4.45pm.
I'm sure we will return again in the future.More

Brilliant relaxing away from it all hotel.
Just back from a wonderful 2 week trip here. The setting is superb with wonderful pools (11 in total) Great rooms, very spacious, lovely to sit outside if you so desire for breakfast & listen to the sea, also there are a couple of outside balconies for dinner in evening which was great.
Food was on the whole good but only criticism was if your there for 2 weeks you get a repeat of the first weeks menu, however it was very nice & I guess you could have one of the other choices. If your a vegetarian be careful as it would say vegetable salad for instance but they would sneak some ham in it!
Lovely place to sit with an evening aperitif & watch the sunset too overlooking the beautiful pools & palm trees.More
