lovely hotel

We stayed as a family during October half term. I booked directly with the hotel and they organised a taxi to meet us at the airport. This is a very good hotel which in the main caters for families. Certainly during half term it was very busy. if you want adult company only i would probabaly avoid school holidays as there was lots of pressure on tables at breakfast and lunch time. We chose just to go bed and breakfast as the hotel is located within easy walking distance from lots of nice places to eat both at the marina and Playa Blanca itself. This decsison was the right one because we discovered on arrival that if you did want to eat at any of the restauarunays in the evening men had to wear long trousers, neither my husband or 17 year old son had packed any. i think this is something the hotel may want to reconsider as a number of the restaurants are either informal buffets or outside and this rule seems a little too formal. That said the hotel is a real treat. lovely welcome drinks on arrival and very friendly knowledgeable stafff who go out of their way to help you and were always pleasant. We booked interconnecting rooms for us so the children - 12 and 17 had their own room which waas really like an apartmnet. the accomodation is really spacious and as well as a living room area there was a well stocked fridge, and microwave !! This was great as you could buy drinks from the supermarket and keep the odd snack in the rooms.The rooms were well serviced and there was always a very nice chocolate treat left in the evening turn down service which we all enjoyed. The pool areas are nice , the quieter one that we used was a little chilly sometimes compared to the other heated pool but we enjoyed it.There is pressure on sunbeds and i think the hotel should consider whether it really needs to use a towel card system which everyone by passed , saving their towels to secure sun beds from early in the morning. We hired a car at the hotel for a couple of days and i would really recommend this as a great way to see the island. We enjoyed a day at the national park marvelling at the volcano , but one of the main highlights was going to Famara beach where we hired surf boards and had two days surfing and enjoying that part of the island , it was an easy drive and well worth it. All in all recommended. If we returned we would try not to get a room in block A which is at the end of the hotel with not a great view etc but it didn,t spoil our stay.More

Really excellent hotel

The special thing of this hotel is, besides all the great/good/ marvelous things I can describe is, they found a formule that no one can border about the children. At the children pool, there is a little waterfall, which absorbs all the noise children (should) make. Every evening the children pools are empty and cleaned! Therefor I can recommend this hotel to people who love children and to those who don't want to be disturbed by children.More

Fabulous hotel!

Can't fault this hotel, it was fabulous. We were upgraded to the presidential suite on arrival (had booked 2 deluxe rooms) which was like having our own luxury apartment. The staff couldn't do enough for us, the breakfast in the a la carte restaurant was so good and the pools and spa were lovely. The only disappointment was the weather! This hotel would suit any type of traveller as there's loads to do for both families, couples and groups of friends. I would definitely go again but earlier in the year as the bars were a bit quiet.More

Excellent luxury resort hotel

We spent eleven nights at the Princesa Yaiza in early November, our first visit and one we enjoyed very much. The entrance and lobby is a large, high space beautifully presented and very impressive. The greeting at reception was friendly and courteous and this set the tone for the rest of the staff who we found to be polite, cheerful and helpful. Our room was a junior suite which consisted of a well-equipped bathroom and twin beds, each of which was the size of modest double bed. There was also a comfortable living space with sofas, table and chairs, a coffee table and a large flat screen TV which received three BBC channels and ITV 1 amongst a plethora of Spanish and German channels. There was plenty of hanging and storage space, a small kitchenette in a cupboard and, importantly, a safe. There was also free WiFi. The property slopes downwards towards the promenade so reception is on the fourth floor and we were one above on the fifth floor (there are plenty of lifts). Our south west facing balcony, which was more of a small terrace, had a fantastic view over the pools area and the Playa Blanca bay beyond, catching the afternoon sun which we enjoyed on the comfortable reclining chairs provided. The public areas are very extensive, both inside and out. There are two large free-form swimming pools , one fresh water and the other salt water, with the former being moderately warmer than the latter, and both surrounded by banks of sunbeds so that we never had difficulty finding some unoccupied at any time in spite of the attention of the inevitable “towel baggers” (towels are provided and replaced on request at the towel station by the lower pool). There are also a number of jacuzzis and children’s pools. In fact the property spans both sides of the Avenida Maritima connected by a large tunnel accessed from level two, which sports large tropical fish aquaria set into the walls, and leads to the family suites, another pool and the gym/sports hall. The gym is quite well equipped, but could be better cleaned and maintained, and another small criticism is that the only towels provided are hand towels so if users want a shower after their session it is not practicable to use the facilities there. Inside, the public areas are on essentially two levels with a bar and shops on level four and the main recreational and restaurant facilities on level two. There are a total of seven restaurants within the curtilage of the hotel – three buffet restaurants (international, Mexican and Italian), three “al la carte” (Italian, Japanese and fine dining) and a lunch time out-door restaurant between the pools. We thought the buffet breakfasts were particularly good with a wide range of fruit, cereals and cooked and cold food, all very fresh and constantly replenished. We also had excellent evening meals in the Don Giovanni and Isla Lobos “a la carte” restaurants. The hotel caters very positively for families and there were quite a number of small children present during our stay (which was in British term time). There are many facilities and organised activities to keep the youngsters happy and occupied and we felt it generally enhanced our overall experience to have the mix of generations. Overall we were very impressed with the Princesa Yaiza and would certainly recommend it based on our experience.More

First class service - a brilliant hotel

We stayed at the Princesa Yaiza for a week in November 2014. We had a wonderful experience. First impressions: As soon as we arrived, a porter took our bags, handed us over to a concierge who pressed a couple of glasses of champagne into our hands and took us through to reception. Every member of staff introduced themselves by name and were incredibly well trained. I've rarely seen such a smooth operation - top marks! Our room in C Block was very large. We had a suite, which means we had a living room with 2 sofas, a small kitchenette and dining table, a large balcony, a separate bedroom and a large bathroom with twin sinks, a slightly sunken bath tub and separate walk-in shower. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Linen and towels were of a high quality. I have to say that the furniture and furnishings were not to my taste - the style in the Yaiza is a little rustic with heavy, dark woods etc - but everything is of a very high quality, so you really cannot complain. The maid service is also first class. I think on a typical day, your room will be checked at least three times - a full clean in the morning, a quick check in the afternoon, and then another in the evening. Our room didn't have a very good Wi-Fi signal. I mentioned this to a receptionist, who dropped off a signal extender within minutes. Again, perfect service. We had booked half board for our stay. This was a good decision. Breakfast buffets in the three main restaurants were varied and plentiful, with attentive staff at hand to fulfil any additional requests. Evening buffets were also very good. We ate at the Italian buffet twice as it was so good. The Mexican buffet was also very good, mainly because it's open air and has a big barbecue station that my husband really liked. The international buffet wasn't to our taste - the atmosphere wasn't the same as in the other two restaurants, it was all a bit too clinical and crowded. If you don't fancy a buffet restaurants, there are three a la carte restaurants on site as well: A 'gourmet' one, another Italian and a Japanese. We went to the Japanese twice as we really enjoyed the show cooking and the quality of the food they served. We also tried the Italian for a late lunch one day and had a very pleasant time there. If you have booked half board, you get €25 per person credit in the a la carte restaurants. As the restaurants are a little expensive (to my mind a tad overpriced), you will pay a few Euros extra to eat there, but to us, it was worth it. There is also a Gelateria on site - definitely nice. There are several pools in the Princesa Yaiza, some heated, some not. We really liked the unheated seawater pool as it's so peaceful - families with children tend to stay closer to the kids' pool and the heated pool, so if you want peace and quiet, the seawater pool is your best bet. The hotel is also almost directly on the beach - we really liked the pool, but the beach is definitely an attractive option! Negatives: We really have to think very hard to find any. On one day, I did get slightly annoyed as many of the 'better' sun loungers around the pool (i.e. the ones in the sun!) were 'reserved' with towels. Officially, the hotel has a 30 mins policy on this - if you reserve a lounger for over 30 mins, your towels should get removed. We actually spoke to the pool attendant about this. However, she seemed unwilling to enforce this policy. That's a shame - a five star superior property needs to get a grip on this kind of thing. I also wasn't hugely impressed with the 45 mins massage I had at the Thalassotherapy centre. This is a purely subjective comment! The massage wasn't horrible, but I had high expectations. For example, my therapist barely introduced herself and did not ask me what I wanted to get from the massage and if I had any particular areas that I wanted her to work on. She also used wooden rollers as part of the massage even though this was not specified in the brochure. I always feel these are a bit of a cop-out... and they were very painful and the opposite of relaxing. When I asked the therapist (very firmly!) to ease up, she did, but it spoiled the experience a little. There was no opportunity for feedback at the time.More
