Enjoyable family holiday
We stayed in C414, a huge room with the biggest bed I have ever seen, a large bathroom with two showers and a bath and ample space for the kids to make the sitting room, complete with very comfy single beds, their own. Yes there were palm trees, they didn't obscure all of our view. Did this bother us? Not in the slightest. It was still really pleasant to sit on the balcony in the early evening. The hotel is huge with many interesting interior design features, it reminded me of a cruise ship in some respects. The pools were busy, and yes the early morning stampede to reserve the sun beds is an irritation (in other countries they allocate beds to you on arrival, perhaps Management could consider this?). On the plus side Playa Dorada beach is a 5 minute stroll across the hotel and down some steps and there's loads of sunbeds down there and some pretty incredible snorkelling to be had! My children at 9 and 12 found themselves in a bit of a no-man's land in terms of entertainment (my son didn't fancy the football club) but they made friends with similarly aged kids in the pools in the main hotel and in D block. Daily aqua-aerobics led by the hard working and enthusiastic animations team was often unintentionally hilarious, although my husband found the speaker system very intrusive. The kids did enjoy the evening shows and in particular the Broadway Musicals. Our room and the hotel in general was always spotless, the staff managing the pool area did seem to struggle at times with the quantity of plastic beakers hanging around. I found all the staff throughout the hotel to be both friendly and helpful, especially at the cocktail hut. Excellent PiÃ±a Coladas. They appreciate it when you try to speak a little Spanish and if they can't understand you they will find someone who will. Evening entertainment is plentiful but the bar area can become very loud. It's a hotel aimed at families so be aware that groups of children do run riot at times. We ate dinner in Kampai, Tapas, Don Giovani's and Chiringuitas for lunch. The food was great, good quality and well presented, the brilliantly entertaining experience in the Japanese restaurant will be remembered for some time. It books up quickly so if they offer you a 7pm slot, take it! I suppose it is relatively expensive but we interspersed hotel dinners with more modest meals in excellent local restaurants. There is a supermarket across the street if you want to stock up on water and soft drinks etc. The beach bar does very inexpensive lunches. Breakfast is a very laid back affair in one of several large buffet restaurants. Even the fussiest eater will find something to please them. I think the hotel is really aimed at families with children aged birth to 7 years. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it if I had gone looking for peace and quiet. We travelled with Jet2.com on an indulgent escape package. We were delighted with the service we received both from the tour operator and Princesa Yaiza. More

Back again to a lovely hotel
A few more days left in out stay and our second time to this hotel and great holiday. Very friendly and very helpful staff who make every effort to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay (albeit more than a few of them speak very little English, not a big deal). Pros -rooms are great size with plenty of space for family and great bathroom size too -hotel is great with nice pools and easy going towel service. Oh and a great beach too as the hotel is right on the waterfront! So best of both worlds. -very large kids club with plenty to for the kids and they do cater for all different age groups from very young to young teens Cons(more room for improvement as we did really enjoy the hotel ) -food was a bit tired. They could use a new approach of less complicated food and more variety (although they would then make is anything we asked for which was great) -drinks not included at dinner! We paid for half board which included plenty of drinks at breakfast but not at dinner which was annoying -pool chairs all reserved before 9am on most days! Poor implementation of removing people's towels who are obviously not at the pool but merely reserving their space for the hour of the day that they will actually use it. Once in a while a card would be left on a chair but be process of removing left towels needs to be implemented regularly and thoroughly. Conclusion I would recommend this hotel to my friends with children as well as those workout. Overall lovely hotel, great rooms and service, great location close to the local marina and town so you never need a car! More
Heavenly! A haven, an oasis, an idyllic "island" within the island of Lanzarote!
I am so excited because in two weeks time we're returning to the Princess Yaiza Hotel, probably one of the best, if not the THE best hotel, overall, that I have ever stayed in and at 63 years of age, I've stayed in many really good ones. To me, the Princess Yaiza is the epitomy of total relaxation in wonderful surroundings. Frontline beach, endless kms of pale, golden sands, deep azure, blue and indigo sea and the bonus view of the island of Fuerteventura on the horizon (only a short ferry ride away; thus two Canary islands for the price of one, if you want to take a day trip)! Inside Princess Yaiza is equally eye-catching, once you enter the lobby; with the extremely effective use of local volcanic rock and native wood, whilst long, dark green plants dangle down from the balconies above.. The same "natural" feel continues alond the corridors that lead to the bedrooms. Ours, in Block A, was a south-west facing room with large terrace, which beautifully captured the afternoon sun and filled the room with abundant light. The bedroom was spacious and decorated in pale and neutral colours that extended from the marble floors to the walls, bed linen and curtains. Again, locally-sourced wood was abundant from the beams on the ceiling to the headboard, cupboards, TV cabinet, table and chairs. Apart from the en-suite bathroom, separate dressing room; there was also the added bonus of a mini "kitchenette" area with sink, fridge and microwave. The rooms are built around the pool area, in white Moroccan style terraces, revealing the "oasis" below: palm trees, plants and kidney-shaped swimming pools (one filled with sea water).. We booked our stay on the Double Superior Relax package, which allowed us al a carte access to six different restaurants of varying cuisine from Japanese to Mexican to Italian but our favourite of all was the Isla de Lobos which seeks to utilize traditional local island produce but presented in a modern, innovative style. We ended up dining there most evenings and pay huge respect and thanks to Head Chef, Paulo and his deputy, David who strive for perfection in everything they present to diners and who produced for us, twice, special gourment degustation menus - a tremendous treat! Aside from dinners, the highlight of our days were the sumptious breakfasts we enjoyed each morning on the terrace of Isla de Lobos - an exquisite setting - blue sea and sky, palm trees swaying in the breeze and a superb al a carte choice of breakfasts with a difference, served professionally by obliging staff: what better way could we have hoped to start our day? The rest of the day was spent relaxing in the grounds, by the pool, walking along the promenade (which has direct access from the hotel) strolling around the hotel's "Plaza" with its outdoor shops, bars and cafeteria, listen ing to love music and enjoying the craft markets that are regularly held there. To top it all, for me, there was the fabulously relaxing Thalasso Spa with its great heated swimming pool underneath a roof of a 1001 twinking star lights, the water circuit, sauna, Turkish bath and the aromatherapy massages, which relaxed me so much...as if there was need for any more relaxation....the Princess Yaiza is the height of relaxation! As I stated previously, it's a heavenly place to stay; a haven; an oasis in this modern world of stress. You could just stay there throughout your entire holiday, without ever venturing outside and make it your own "island" inside an island!More

Amazing family holiday
We stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks at the beginning of August. When we first arrived, our cases were promptly taken away from us (including hand luggage) and we were offered a cold glass of cava and our 3 children were given juice. This was very much appreciated. We stayed in block D and had a royal kiko suite. For a family of 5, we have always been short on space on previous holidays, however our room was very spacious and light and airy. Our bed was huge and comfy.(I still miss that bed!) the children were satisfied with their room which had a DVD player and flat screen tv which had a couple of English channels but they mainly watched tiny pop which you can get on sky at home. We booked B and B, the family restaurant in block D is much more relaxed than the other restaurants in the morning so we ate here in the morning. The children enjoyed kiko land. The only thing I would say that the club times in the afternoon were not suited to us because we were B and B. The times were from 4-6 so if the kids wanted to go to the kids disco at 8,they couldn't because we had to get ready and venture out to eat. My younger 2 who are 3 didn't attend this slot because I wanted them to rest before going out. We did eat at the hotel a couple of times. We took the kids to the Japanese which was great fun and my fussy daughter tried everything. The tapas was beautiful and very reasonable priced. Me and my husband ate at Isla losbos twice and hired a babysitter. I've never done thus before and was quite dubious but after speaking to other families who had done this, I gave it a go. We were only gone for 2 hours but the kids were asleep and the lady was great. It is usually the girls from kiko land so the kids are already familiar with them The 2nd time we did this. We asked Andrea (babysitter) to take kids to the mini disco and we will meet her there after our meal. The babysitters will go wherever you ask them too.( in the hotel) the kids gad a great time with her. Playing with balloons,drawing,dancing etc. Isla losbos was nice. I wouldn't say it was amazing because I do think it lacks a bit of atmosphere. The first time we ate there, it was ok. It took quite a while to get our drinks ordered because there was quite a large party behind us so all attention went to them which is a shame. The starter of goats cheese salad with pistachios was gorgeous. The pools are great, we never had any real trouble of getting a bed, again block D is much quieter so head there if you can't get a bed in the main area. Snacks around the pool are limited but the supermarket is very close. The hotel is extremely clean, the maids work so hard. In fact all the staff do. I believe this hotel is a 5 star where families are concerned. I've never felt so relaxed, the children are happy so we are happy. Some people moaning because they say lots of children etc. my advise, if you see a large hotel which has a large yellow bird as a mascot and it prides itself on kiko land. They're probably going to be a lot of children there which means a bit of noise and heaven forbid inflatable crocodiles. We met a lot of lovely families here too. I'm hoping to return one day.More
Very expensive. Worth the extra money though. So much choice for dining. Excellent service. Cocktails every night. Would definitely go again. Spent our two week holiday next to the pool in block D. Book it now!More
