We stayed at the Lanzarote Princess as a couple for 11 nights from the 20th September on half board. We had stayed there on two previous occasions approximately 10 years ago with the children.
It has maintained it's previous high standards.
Reception and booking in was quick and efficient and reception staff were very helpful on any occasion you had to speak with them.
There was no one to assist with luggage but that was not a problem as we were on the second floor and lifts were available. The room appears to have been recently refurbished and was very good. We had one issue with the shower where the head did not fit the bracket and you could not change the direction from spraying to one side. Also the towel rail fell apart. Maintenance came immediately and fixed the towel rail and changed the shower head which was better but not perfect.
Service in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast was efficient and staff helpful and polite. At breakfast the only issue being there was not always cups available and you either had to steal from an unoccupied table or find a staff member to request them.
At breakfast there was ample choice to suit all tastes and have to say the croissants were excellent. For dinner there was choice but it is always the problem of mass catering and I would really not go further than to say it was ok. You can change dinner to lunch which we did a few times. This is the first time we have been half board for a few years and we will probably stick with bed and breakfast going forward
The pool area is excellent with a good arrangement for towel exchange and with ample sun beds. You only have to get up at the crack of dawn if you want your favourite position (personally I do not feel the need)
I did feel there was insufficient staff in both the Piano Bar and the Pool Bar.
It was extremely difficult to get served in the Pool Bar and the barman was working like a trojan. Also in the Piano Bar you could wait for ages for a waiter or alternatively wait for ages at the bar.
There does appear to be a random mix of seating in the Piano Bar and one or two should have been consigned to the skip.
WiFi is free and available throughout the hotel
There is a small fitness suite which is free and is perfectly adequate
The rooms were serviced every day to a good standard and thanks to Mery who always had a smile
I may appear to be a bit critical but I would recommend this hotel which has a great location and would certainly use it againMore

This is a late review from September/October 2014 when we stayed at the Lanzarote Princess (LP) with a group of friends. It was the second time we have been at the LP and the hotel had improved since our previous visit.
The old snack bar had been knocked down and replaced with a new modern looking snack bar that was second to none. The pool had also been improved and looked really good. The only worn out looking areas were the corridors which I'm sure they've probably sorted by now.
We've since been to two other similar rated hotels (4* all inclusive) on Tenerife and Gran Canaria and we can say without doubt that overall, nobody does it better than the LP.
The LP's selection of food is easily the best we've come across and in some instances offering 4-5 times the selection of other hotels. The "live" cooking is great from breakfast to evening meal and there will definitely be something for everybody in there. The cooks etc do a really good job and should be proud of themselves.
Drink wise, the cocktails are excellent being made in front of you and not premixed. The alcohol has branded makes within its AI selection with a varied selection.
The opening times from the restaurant is ideal eg 530AM for an early continental breakfast if you wish.
Sun Loungers around the pool were plentiful and we never really queued for anything. The pool bar is great too and offers a nice place to cool down in the midday sun.
Activities during the day were great eg pool aerobics, water polo etc and the staff running this were very entertaining with one person who really shone (is it Daniel or something similar?) The hotel should do all it can to hold on to him as he's a real asset. They even had an October Fest day which was brilliant and thank you to the staff who put all the effort in there.
Evening entertainment was probably what you would expect for a hotel but most of the time after dinner, we wandered out to try and walk of all of that food and drink we had during the day.
The location of the hotel is great with the lovely beach, market, town etc within a very short distance.
Rooms are lovely and clean and check in is fast and efficient. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Wifi is free and has good coverage around the pool area.
Overall a great holiday and I'd recommend this hotel to anybody. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
Will I be back? Yes, we're coming back next year as we just couldn't help comparing it to the other hotels we've been at and overall for us, it's in a class of it's own.More

I stayed at this hotel in August-September 2015. I have visited the hotel in the past as my parents have stayed and they had nothing but good feedback.
The hotel itself was fantastic, great rooms, great pool area and amenities, lovely location, friendly staff. If you have children this hotel is perfect for them as the pool area is great. But again if you have no children you don't feel over run with kids.
If I could give it a small criticism it would be the food and the childrens entertainment/entertainment at night .
I am not picky eater at all and although there seemed to be plenty of food choice, it was repeated most nights so the selection became boring to the point where I didn't fancy anything to eat. I think there needs to be more selection at night and not repeated.
In terms of the children's entertainment, this is very much catered for the Spanish. I know that my child found it very difficult to join in due to the Spanish songs, dances.
The overall entertainment at night wasn't good at all.
However overall, that would definitely not put me off the hotel and if I return to Playa Blanca I will definitely be considering this hotel again as there are more pros than cons.More

Lovely time at princess
From arrival to finish great time had the staff from cleaners to bar staff to management all very helpful. Got to mention Vincente and his excellent mojitos, the lovely pool bar guy whose name has left me and all the staff at the main bar girls and guys. The big plus being the hotel had Pernod on the all inclusive, wife very happy. The restaurant staff all very helpful and worked hard through breakfast, dinner, and tea. Also last but not least the two lovely ladies who always had a smile on there face in the snack bar. A great time was had and meeting Anne and John from Leeds was another plus,hope to be returning soon. The suite we stayed in was huge and well worth the extra money a lovely hotel in a great location More
