Hotel Bahia Princess  

This hotel has 3 pools to its name and is in just the right spot for beaches, bars and restaurants.

This hotel is in a great spot, with shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep. There are a couple of beaches about 5 minutes’ walk away, and upmarket Playa del Duque is close by, too.

With three pools, plus one for children, there’s plenty of swimming space. And evening entertainment is big news, with everything from tribute acts to comedians.

Great holiday, will stay at hotel again

Myself and my girlfriend and 5 year old daughter recently returned from a weeks stay at the Bahia Princess hotel in Costa Adeje and had a great time. The flight there was fine and we touched down pretty much on time. Going through passport control and even getting the luggage was pretty straight forward and stress free and we then went outside to get the coaches to our hotel. I would say it was around 20 mins on the coach to the hotel and check in was very quick. You can choose to hire the safe and mini fridge in your room and either pay up front or (like us) put it on the room bill which you pay on check out. We then went straight up to our room and our luggage was brought up to us. You can also choose to have wifi for the week for 19 euros but as there is free wifi in public areas of the hotel we found we only used it in our room so probably would not have it again. Our room itself was very nice and very spacious. We looked out on the front of the hotel so there was mainly traffic and mountains to look at but this did not affect our sleeping as there wasn't that much traffic late in the night. If you wanted to look out over the pool/towards the sea then I would suggest requesting this if possible before you fly. As we travelled at the end of July into August we knew it would be hot but were surprised at how hot it was. 38 degrees was the lowest temp we had all week and it regularly went above 42 degrees. There is one main restaurant and it is at the bottom of a huge set and steps that lead to the main heated swimming pool. There are two other pools at the top of the stairs. You certainly get a work out going up and down the steps but there is a lift if you cannot manage the steps. We attended the welcome meeting held by Melissa and Bryony and it was informative and helped us decide on what we wanted to do and see. There was no pressure to buy any trips and they were just friendly faces to help you if you wanted it. Our daughter loved chatting to Melissa. We decided on going to Lorro park which was just amazing and we would happily go back there again. More than one visit is warranted as its so big and was incredibly busy when we went. We also decided to go to the medieval night and it was brilliant. I went to this when I was much younger and brought to Tenerife by my folks and it's still going strong. It's a great night out and I ended up with no voice left from cheering for our knight. My daughter also loved the night and got all upset when he died. The food in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner was buffet style but they did have a couple of stations cooking if you asked for something. Breakfast had everything you could think of from a fry up to cereals and cold meats and lots of different types of bread. They also had fresh croissants cooked each morning and the smell was lovely when you walked in. Food at dinner time was good as well and there was lots of different fish if you like that but there was also other choices if you didn't like it. A word of warning (and the hotel tell you this on a card on your table at dinner) dinner starts at 6:30 and my suggestion (especially if you have younger kids) is to get there for between 6:30 and 7:30 at the latest. After this it gets rammed and you are walking round dodging people rather than concentrating on the food. The kids mini disco is also on from 8:15 so it gives u time to enjoy your food before they want to run off to their disco. Evening entertainment was ok, but we just drank alcohol anyway lol I must say that Elsa, who was our daytime and evening entertainer was amazing!! She does most the work on her own and was brilliant. In the daytime she organised all the water activities in the pool and all had a great time. This was most evident when they changed her for another girl and quite honestly they struggled to get people involved as they didn't like how the other girl approached asking people. Elsa was amazing and another reason for us to go back to the hotel next year, just really hope she is still there again. Now, for the negative part of the holiday. I know foreign guests are thought of as bad for hogging the sunbeds and putting their towels down early in the morning but I must say the Brits were just as bad if not worse. I hate this but quickly realised that if I didn't do the same there was no chance of us getting a bed in the sunshine. I ended up having to put towels down at 7 each morning to make sure we got a bed. I did ask why this wasn't stopped by the hotel and was told that when they tried to stop it people got aggressive and would then leave personal items there so if the hotel moved them they were accused of stealing them. There are plenty of beds in sunny spots but if you have kids you want to try and get by the main pool as the kids will want to be in there. We had a fantastic holiday at this hotel and will definitely go back. One tip I can give is to hire the fridge in your room. Don't use the mini bar service as this is expensive but go out of the hotel and turn either left or right and you will find super markets there. To give you some idea about prices, the bottles of Pepsi etc from the vending machines are nearly 3 euros each but you can buy the same bottles from the supermarket for only 1euro (a third of the cost) it is also cheaper getting spirits etc from the shops. A friend of ours had a JD and coke and it cost nearly 8 euros in the hotel when ur would have cost about 4-5 euros if bought from the shops. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families and people who don't want the night time life of playa da las America. Great holiday!!!!!More

RandomDC,

Fantastic hotel but a couple of niggles!

Just returned from a family holiday (4 adults 2 teenagers), to Bahia Princess Costa Adeje. This is the 2nd time I have been to the area,(which I love), but we chose a different hotel this time. First impressions - what a grand hotel. We arrived around lunchtime and was shown straight to our room with a pool view. Room was adequate and spotlessly clean as was everywhere in the hotel. We was half board - cant fault the food it was absolutely delicious (buffet for all meals): breakfast lots to choose from, evening meal the food was varied and again very tasety. The waiters work tirelessly, as soon as you've finished your food the plate is taken away. The pool area is spotlessly clean as is the pool itself. There are alot of steps at the hotel, but there are also lifts. In fact it could of been the perfect holiday, but I do have a couple of niggles: men (and my son who is 17 yrs) have to wear long trousers in the restaurant in the evening, which I personally think is not necessary, especially when you see what some of the women/girls wear - I think smart shorts would be sufficient. This is a rule they are strict on, we know of one couple where the husband had to buy a pair of trousers as he hadn't taken any! fridge: your room has a fridge (yay i hear you say) for the cost of 40 euro per week you can use it to keep your drinks cold in your room otherwise it is well and truly locked!! This is something I feel should be included in the price of your holiday. I have never had to pay for a fridge before. wifi: having teenagers who cannot survive without surfing the net on a regular basis - this is 19 euro for 1 week 12 euro for 3 days and i think it was 4 euro daily, again for the price of the holiday this is something I feel could and should be included. Only one device at a time can use the code you are given, so its a case of sharing or buying an add on package with your network provider. drinks/snacks: in the hotel are extremely expensive, if you want a vodka, gin etc you pay an extra 2 euro for a bottle of coke to go with it (JD and coke works out around 9 euro). Again mars ice cream was 3.20 - doesnt work out cheap if you are a family! Sunbeds: be prepared for an early start if you wish to have to comfort of a sunbed. We had to get up between 6.30 and 7 otherwise you had no chance of getting one. We noticed that some people were putting towels out the night before. Pool towels: these are in the room on arrival and are only changed once per week. If you wish to change them more frequently it cost 1.20 per towel. I know it sounds like im moaning alot, but I feel that if just some of my points could be noted by the hotel (i did fill out the satisfaction sheet the hotel supply), it would make life a little bit easier, after all they are just niggles, nothing major. You will have a great holiday if you go to this hotel, just make sure you take plenty of spending money!!!!!More

Disappointed

We booked our holiday with Thompson Travel eight weeks ago and we chose to stay at The Bahia Princess Hotel in Costa Adeje. This was our second choice of hotel, our first would have been the Costa Adeje Gran Hotel which we had stayed at previously in May of this year. The Gran Hotel had no vacancies for the dates we needed so this is why we chose the Bahia Princess. Part of the reason for booking this trip was to celebrate my partners 60th birthday. Two weeks prior to the holiday I rang the hotel reception to order Champagne breakfast and a birthday cake for a surprise for my partner, I did offer to make payment for this service over the phone but was told that would not be necessary and that everything would be in place for the celebrations.. On arrival at hotel we were checked in at reception and we were informed that there was a number of additional charges to be charged to room which were 1: safety deposit box 2: hire of fridge 3: deposit for fridge key. Also we were informed that there was a charge of One Euro 25 cents per towel when you change your towel. The towels can only be changed free of charge after one week. I think this is wrong that you are charged for clean towels in a so called four star rated hotel and I have never come across this before in other hotels. Towels after a couple of days start to smell so imagine what they are like after one week. We ended up buying towels, It worked out cheaper than paying for clean towels provided by hotel. Rooms upon arrival were clean and tidy and to a decent standard, but only two plug sockets for the likes of hair straightener’s, phones etc. No tea making facilities are available free of charge or even available for hire. I found this very strange. Wi-Fi is also chargeable and is very poor quality (like most hotels) On the morning of my partner’s birthday I rang reception to check what time the breakfast and champagne and birthday cake would be delivered to our room. Reception informed me that they did not serve breakfast in rooms and that they also said they had no record of my phone call to order champagne or breakfast and birthday cake. Champagne was eventually delivered at around 17:00 when we returned from day out. Food at the hotel is adequate but once again hidden charges are drinks such as fresh fruit juice, and bottled water. I think this is expected with wine, spirits and beers but not water or fresh fruit juice. The sunbeds situation is very poor, not enough beds at pool sides for size of hotel and guests. This is clear to see when guests start to place towels on sunbeds from 05:00 am and earlier some mornings. Towels can be on beds almost all morning and late afternoons. When challenged at reception about this I was told they were not aware this was happening but the photographs I have taken proves that towels are on beds in early hours of morning. I was informed that the poolside guards should be on the lookout for this and that they will look to stop it from happening in future, I will see how things are on this over the remaining days of our holiday’s. In summing up would I stay at this hotel again? The answer would have to be No. When paying more than £2500 for this holiday we expected a lot more from the hotel but it failed to deliver. More

Rip off

Complete rip off from drinks to services. Having to get up at 6am for a sunbed is a complete joke. I've took the family to both Gauyarmina/Bahia seven times but this is the last time, all they are interested in is your money. You pay top prices for drinks that are poor with rude service from staff (not all but most). Could do with upgrading definitely not a platinum. Have recommended these hotels in the past but not anymore.More

Ryan H,

Not quite what I expected

This was our first visit to this hotel, we were in Adeje on a previous holiday and saw the hotel, it looked lovely. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the staff are helpful and friendly and the activity team work really hard. The hotel is in a ideal location for the beach and eating out and bars. The food in the hotel is lovely but could do with more choice for suh a large hotel. The only negative points I would say is the amount of steps in the hotel and having to pay for wifi (€19 per week for one devise) and the use of the fridge (€4 per day). The hotel ould do with a fresh lick of paint outside. We really enjoyed our time here but would have to consider the alternatives if wanting to return to the resort.More
