I was a bit concerned after reading some of the reviews before going to the Guayarmina Princess, but I must say our holiday last week was great! Room was great, 2nd floor over the outside entrance , I thought there would be a lot of road noise but as the road only led to the hotel it was minimal and when doors were shut no noise at all. Food was good lots of choice, the veal was particularly good, but occasionally could have been warmer despite been replenished frequently. Day time activities ( even though we didn't join in) ranged from water sports, rifle shooting, archery and quoits. Evening entertainment was mostly tribute acts- Elton John and Drifters particularly good. If you didn't want to join in lots of local bars within easy walking distance to enjoy a drink. On the whole a very enjoyable sunbed and book holiday that I would repeat!More

Pool area improved since last year
We stayed here last year when the area around the pool was VERY slippery.This has now been improved with non slip tiles and removing all the rockery areas creating much more sun bed space.We stayed again with family including 9 year old granddaughter who absolutely loved the kids club and evening entertainment. The kids reps especially Rachael did a brilliant job.They even took the kids outside to draw while the 3 tenors were on.We had e mailed beforehand to request 3 rooms together on a high floor but never got a reply.However, we did get 3 rooms close by on the 3rd floor which overlooked the tennis courts and side sea view.Unfortunately, the noise from the air con unit from the next hotel was extremely noisy but at least we didn't get a low floor which looked awful.
Like previous reviewers we felt the extras for the fridge and safe were unfair. We did hire the fridge but it was almost a waste of time as it was barely cold.....but the key did fit the fridges in the other rooms in our party so we did gain there.( I am sure management will cotton on to this though )
Everything else has already been said....the dining room was extremely busy and this time we found that some staff did not understand much English. Our orders were constantly wrong....one evening the waitress had to get another member of staff to deal with us as we asked for the wine list and she had no idea what we were asking for.
We did enjoy the entertainment, especially the 3 tenors and mister sister who granted our wish at saying hello to our party and mentioning our granddaughters name.
A tip for lunch.....the food at the bar as you come over the bridge is far better than the food at the pool bar at the far corner and its the same price.You got a proper side salad with knives and forks not just a piece of limp lettuce and no cutlery.
To sum up...we had a wonderful time and the hotel was clean although now looking tired in places, especially the balconies.
Would we return?
If we had our granddaughter with us then a definite "yes" although the lottery with the room allocation would be a concern.
If travelling as a couple then a definite "no"More

Won't go again!!!
Just got back from 2 weeks at this hotel. Never again! The food was awful no choice and when there was a choice you could have soled your shoes with it. The price of wi-if was disgusting 6 euros for 24 hours!! Towels put on sun beds before 6am and not used until gone 3 in the afternoon. Meal times was like a bun fight anybody would think people hadn't eaten in weeks (though what they found to eat was a mystery to us). Paid good money and had to go out to eat!! Worst Thomson hotel we have been in.More

Not a hotel to revisit
Had a week away with the family 5 adults + 2 year old child.
On arrival only 1 of our 3 rooms were available and not were we had asked to be situated.
Our room was of a good size and clean.
Staff were on the whole very polite and a pleasure to be around.
I have rated the hotel as a 2 star for the following 2 reasons.
I found the evening buffet to be woefully short of my expectations. Limited number of dishes available and repeated several nights in a row, not always hot and it took ages to get the food you required. Breakfast was okay but only 2 toasters meant a large queue to get anything. Also we has pizza, chips and wedges for breakfast...........
Several nights in we had a visitor to our room (large cockroach) which woke my 2 year old daughter up screaming. It was 1 of 3 I dispatched over the week. After complaining to reception there answer the following day was to leave a can of cockroach exterminator spray in our room. Obviously to assist me in my duties during the night.
I noted alot of people in the hotel having issues with there keycards deactivating during the week. Happened to us only the once.
I feel for a 4 star hotel, with the princess brand, the food should have been significantly better. Infact we have stayed at other princess hotels on other islands without the problem.
Also the whole visitor problem and the way it was or was not dealt with was not great.More
Family Holiday October 2014
Stayed here with the family in October 2014. What a lovely hotel. We requested a high level room due to the reviews we had read on trip advisor. We got a room that was pool level, wasn't sure how this was going to be but it turned out really good and would stay in this room again. The Thomson reps were really help full and all the hotel staff were really friendly. Our thanks especially goes out the entertainment team, they made our holiday and our kids holiday, kids are still singing all the songs from the kids disco. The kids club was great, and the evening entertainment was great too, 2 shows a night, what more can you ask for.
We didn't purchase the mini fridge as read bad reviews about this, I purchased the Wi-Fi and didn't have a problem with this as we were able to get this in our room, maybe because we were pool level, anyway its was fine.
During the second week of our stay it was very hard to find a sunbed. The food at the hotel was nice. The only thing we didn't like about the food was that their wasn't much of a choice for the children, on previous holidays their was a separate section for the children's food but here there wasn't and don't think they were really catered for, this could maybe an improvement to make to make this more of a family hotel.
We would go back, location of the hotel was great, pool was great, entertainment was great and the kids had a fab holiday.More
