There are 3 pools to choose from throughout the resort, so you can always find a quiet spot to relax and sunbath, read a book, or enjoy some energetic lengths. Surrounded by loungers and parasols and set within the palm-filled grounds, one of the pools is saltwater and there are two smaller children's pools too.
Kikoland is a great place for children to have adventures, enjoy sports and play with new friends. With pools, tennis courts, games house and many more facilities, there is something for children of every age up to 16. However, young children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Arrived at the hotel in October after our wedding. The service by the staff, attention to detail and the hotel surroundings are all exceptional. Easily the best hotel in the Canary islands. Fantastic buffet restaurants and a la carte restaurants More
We spent 2 weeks at the end of September in a suite in Princesa Yaiza. The room was great. Lot of space with a terrasse with view on the swimming pools and the sea. We took the bed and breakfast option as we wanted to have the option to eat outside as well. We tried 3 of the hotel restaurants : Islas de los Lobos that was excellent with a sea view. The Italian restaurant, this one was actually a disappointment, the quaility of the food was not what we were expecting.
The best one for us was the Kampai Japanese restaurant where we ate several nights as we wanted to try all the options on the menu. For a try I would recommend one of their degustation menus.
For a snack I would recommend the tapas restaurant or the ice cream parlor.
They also have a nice cocktail bar by the entrance.
Regarding information or excursions planning and booking they have a service called Public Relations. A special thank you to Barbara, Elke and Kelly who helped to organize our stay and beared with us as we changed our mind several times.
The hotel also has a hairdresser on site. I tried it and I am very happy with the result.
The hotel is just on the promenade and it is within a 10 min walk from Marina Rubicon where you can find restaurants, bars and shops.More

Excellent Family Resort
I have just spent a week in this hotel with my husband, my sister and brother in law.
I have read most of the recent reviews many of which are very comprehensive and well informed.
I have thought hard about what I could add that would be helpful.
These are a few things that come to mind.
The hotel is large and well built, it's light and airy with a wide variety of restaurants and amenities, we noticed that when under occupied it was a pleasure to stay in, the much talked about sunbed bagging was of no consequence, but when full it became apparent that the restaurants and pool area struggled to cope, they simply were not big enough.
The charming staff did their best to keep things on an even keel but you cannot stuff a gallon into a pint pot. Sunbeds were grabbed before light and many of them remained unused for most of the day with only a towel on them.
I have seen the hotel reply saying it is policy not to allow this, the truth is even if its policy which I doubt it's unenforceable as you are given a card for you first towel and a new towel can only be obtained if you return your towel to retrieve your card or simply swap for a new towel. If the staff removed towels from sunbeds there would be a riot!
Busy days made the breakfast tight and noisy, one morning I could hardly get in and out for my food,
That said the food was excellent, beautifully presented, excellent choice, and flavoursome.
Hotel information in the rooms is non existent, I got most of my information from this site, so sharpen up Princess Yaiza it's not rocket science to print a list of all that is on offer ( i.e for a small charge breakfast is available in the quiet of the Isle de Lobos) and put it in the rooms.
To my delight the manager does enforce a policy of proper dress at dinner for gentlemen, it should however be extended to the ladies, short tight denim shorts and a white vest are not appropriate dress for dinner.
Finally if you are people who prefer not to enjoy Dinner, Swimming Pools etc with the very young then choose another hotel I personally am not worried by it but I can see that a fractious toddler who is in need of sleep at 10pm can be stressful to some, we no longer live in a society where children are seen but not heard( that died with Queen Victoria) parents try to negotiate with a tired yelling 2 year old these days, and in my experience that is never successful.
The staff, facilities, food and rooms are excellent if a family resort is what you want this would be hard to beat.More

Just arrived back from the Princesa Yaiza on Sunday 12th October. Stayed at this wonderful place for one week and hope to go back sometime next year. My husband and I paid extra for a relax room which was wonderful and well worth it. This enabled us to have al a carte breakfast each morning and enabled us to use the spa each day, pure relaxation which is what we both required. The staff from the porters when you arrive and reception staff are all so helpful nothing is too much trouble. If you need anything or want to know something just ask and they will help you as much as possible. The rooms are very spacious. It is a very big complex and you are given a map when you arrive of where everything is (you certainly need it to start with) but you soon find your way around. If you go out the back of the hotel you are on the beach path which will either take you to the Rubicon marina or the other way to the shops and ferry area.More
Really lovely staff and location
Firstly I didn't stay here but attended a wedding here. For those that don't know Spanish weddings are a very long fiesta so I feel able to comment as I spent almost 12 hours there. From the moment the guests entered the lobby staff were exceptionally friendly and nothing too much trouble.
Food was divine, service impeccable and smiles from all the staff despite working such long shifts. If ever I were to return to Playa Blanca I would stay here. More
