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 3 pools, plus 1 for children, there’s plenty of swimming space. The buffet restaurant has luxe touches like cava and caviar. And evening entertainment is big news, with everything from tribute acts to comedians.

Very close, but no cigarillo...

Just back from week at the Princess. It was an enjoyable week with my wife and two friends (another married couple) . We felt quite young in this setting, although we are around 60 years of age, on average as the majority of guests were mid-sixties upwards, I would say. There were a few children but not many. First the positives:- The Bahia Princess is a well run hotel. It is clean and well presented, and the staff are pleasant and helpful, especially in the dining room. The food at breakfast and dinner are fine, there is room for improvement in some areas but on the whole, we felt that there was little to grumble about and much to enjoy. Our rooms were fine, not somewhere that we spend much time but they were clean and pleasant. The situation of the hotel is fine, between the excesses of Las Americas and the more sedate northern beaches. There are a lot of steps but this was not a problem for us. The hotel is not beach-front, but set back a couple of hundred metres. So it is a short walk to the nearest beach which typically for the area, is a black sand, artificial construct. A fifteen minute walk to the north brings you to the much nicer Playa del Duque. Sun beds and parasols are not cheap there, but we felt they were worth it for us. The negatives;- These have been well documented here by other contributors. Other '5T' Thomson hotels do not usually charge to unlock the 'fridge, and some have free wi-fi. Also other similar hotels do not charge for renewing beach towels. However, apart from the charge for the 'fridge, we weren't too bothered by the other charges. We felt though that the hotel would make a lot more friends if it included the 'fridge, wi-fi and towels, in a slightly higher price per guest, and didn't get constant gripes on Tripadvisor about these issues. What did excercise us was the poor quality of the coffee in particular, and the other drinks in the dining room in general. Its time that hotels stopped cutting corners in this way. The quality of all the beverages from the self-service drinks machines was poor. Watery fruit juices and tasteless coffee in particular. We stayed at the '5T' Rui Bonanza Palace in Majorca in the summer and at breakfast the waiters brought a pot of good qualty coffee on the table upon our arrival, which was much appreciated. If this sounds like a lot of gripes, they are only about a small (but important) part of the package. If the Bahia Princess supplied good quality drinks to match the food, and included the wi-fi 'fridge and towels, covered by say, an extra £20 per guest in the price, I think everyone would be happy. Overall, I repeat that this is a well-run and pleasant hotel, and paying attention to the above criticisms, would earn it an excellent rating from our party.More

Brilliant week in Costa Adeje

Really enjoyed a week at the Bahia Princess. I'm not sure what some reviewers expect from a holiday, as some of the complaints on here are a bit over the top. Yes, there are a LOT of stairs - but there are lifts to every single level! We had no complaints from this holiday - other than some cloudy weather. Our room was spacious, and kept very clean. Shower was pretty good for a hotel room. Comfy beds. The food in the restaurant was tasty and varied each day. Not the widest range, but they didn't serve the same dishes each night (excepts salads, ice cream etc) and there were plenty of choices at breakfast. The location of this hotel is great for the beach and for walking along towards Puerto Colon. Plenty of bars and restaurants very nearby.More

Too many steps for us

We were late arriving and no food was available for us but we were given a voucher for a picnic or dinner on date of departure, surely they could have left a couple of sandwiches or a small salad in the room You have to pay extra for WIFI, safe and fridge. You also have to pay one euro 20 if you want to change your pool towel. There were no tissues or moisturiser or face cloths and no bathrobes and slippers and the shampoo and bath gel were in satchets. The wardrobe space was not long enough for my dresses and my husbands shirts. The walls between rooms were a bit thin as we could here someone clomping about in high heel shoes and a wake up call was very clear. The beds were rather firm. The food was good and the staff were good too but not all waiters seemed to understand that we did not want our red wine chilled. We did not like the 52 steps down to the restaurant and did not discover the lift to avoid these until well into the holiday they seemed difficult to find but we realised there must be one when we saw a lady in a wheelchair..`` -More

Lovely Stay

Lovely hotel, it looks stunning with palace like columns and steps (the steps were a little too many but looked fabulous) The staff are friendly, and helpful, the food is good, The rooms are clean but lack the necessities like a kettle to make tea and coffee, we were told we cannot have one in the room due to Spanish Law! this is rubbish as we have stayed in many hotels on the island and had a kettle in our room, another annoyance was that the wifi was not free! the fridge was also not free! These minor things will probably stop us from staying here again.More
