Hotel Guayarmina Princess  

With a seafront location and a fantastic pool scene, it’s no wonder guests come back to the Hotel Guayarmina Princess year after year.

This hotel’s location gets full marks – it’s right by the sea in upmarket Costa Adeje. A lift whisks you down to a sandy beach, and a stroll along the promenade lands you in Playa del Duque.

The interiors here are pretty impressive, and feature indoor palms, high, cathedral-like ceilings and polished marble floors.

Lovely family break in October

Booked half board, through a Thomson shop not long before travelling, stayed last week in October with our 9 and 6 year old daughters. Read the mixed reviews so was expecting the worst! Flights from Exeter spot on. Told on arrival we had a Twin room on the lower floors which are not in the main building. The Thomson shop and I emailed requesting higher rooms, but to be fair the hotel was full and twin rooms for 4 are all located on the lower floors. The hotel offered us another room 2 nights later, but in the end we liked our room below reception -on the 1st floor –level with road- but at the side of the hotel which was quiet and very clean. The rooms do need some refurbishment and I would call this a very good 3 star hotel, we paid premium rates being in the school holidays, but the location is very good and weather was great. The food was v good half board and our young daughters enjoyed what was on offer. There were queues for the restaurant as the very big hotel was full, but these were managed well by restaurant staff and you were soon seated at a table. We went to the beach each day (other than when we went on the fantastic freebird vip trip, whale watching) and then back to the pool late afternoon for cocktails. There’s two fantastic beaches nearby. Take a travel kettle if you want tea or coffee in your room and only hire the safe. There was evening entertainment to suit all tastes and overall we had a lovely family break and hope to return next year.More

2nd visit to the Guayarmina Princess

The hotel is well positioned for all the local ammenities ,shops bars etc.with sea views/partial sea views from most rooms. A lift provides direct access to the promenade and the beach. A large team of domestic staff keep the hotel immaculately clean, our room 3005 had large comfortable twin beds with plenty of wardrobe space, the bath room had a bath with a powerful shower over and there was always plenty of hot water. Patio doors led onto a reasonable sized balcony with views of Porto Colon and the sea, with a small table and two chairs. It is worth noting that SMOKING is not permitted on balconies. There is a flat screen cable TV in the room however the BBC & ITV channels are scrambled, I was advised by the hotel that the British Government want viewers on the continent to pay to watch British TV. If you wish to keep up to speed with UK news this is available on SKY news, British TV is shown in the many bars adjacent to the hotel. Food is served buffet style and the restaurant is busy at meal times and you may have to wait a couple of minutes but the attentive staff soon have you seated. The food is plentiful and varied. I was disappointed on this visit at breakfast being a tea drinker that there were no tea pots or milk jugs available and I had to fiddle about with tea bags in a cup and get milk from the cereal bar in a glass,not what you expect in a four star hotel!, additionally there was no fresh milk only UHT which I don't like and especially not on my breakfast cereals! I left a comment about this on the questionaire you are invited to complete on departure whether this will change the managements perception of what British guests prefer is yet to be seen. The British seemed to be in the minority, the clientele appears to be mainly German and Scandinavian.There is a vast array of sun loungers but the age old chestnut of reserving these is still noticable despite notices advising this was against hotel policy, however there was always some available.Front of house staff are polite, courteous and multi-linguil. Despite a few little niggles no doubt we will return to this hotel on our annual pre Christmas visit to Tenerife for some winter sun.More

Disappointed

We have recently returned from the Guayarmina after our 7th visit to this hotel, unfortunately it may be the last. All Inclusive I don't think so, we were made to feel like second class citizens, couldn't eat where we wanted or even eat what we wanted and only allowed to drink in certain bars at certain times, its was very confusing especially as the bars where called one thing on the information sheets and something completely different when you went to them. When we saw that the hotel was all inclusive we decided to go for this option as we have done all inclusive quite a few times and it has always worked for us, but not at the Guayarmina, we don't eat or drink anymore than if we go half board, but the waiters impression of all inclusive visitors is that we want something for nothing (even though we have paid for this up front). We couldn't get Bicardi but had to have 'Ron' which happens in most places when you go all inc but if you paid for the drinks, Bicardi and Ron are the same price so why not serve Bicardi. The food was also lacking on this holiday, cold raw vegetables, and although I like my roast beef raw, I don't like it raw (which was the way it looked at the one meal. Also although I like the odd beef burger/toastie/hot dog I don't like these day in day out (how about a salad on the "all inc" menu. We have always enjoyed our holidays at this hotel, so much so that the year my husband retired we took the whole family there to celebrate and there were no complaints then, except for the price of the drinks. There was also building work going on when we got there, the pool restaurant and bar was having a roof fitted and they were building on the tennis courts, and although the manager said workmen didn't go through the hotel, we saw them on several occasions pushing wheel barrows past the dining room with either loaded with rubbish or breeze blocks. I went to celebrate my 70th Birthday and we had a good holiday, but it was spoilt a little by the way we were treated, but I do thank you for the bottles of Champagne, one on arrival,as we had stayed there before and one for my Birthday. We may decide to come back if and when the all inclusive is up and running properly or finished with altogether, the mixture doesn't work.More

Lovely December Break

We decided to visit the Guayarmina Princess as a nice break just before Christmas. Our first impressions on checking in, were not favourable as there was a very long queue, meaning we had to wait for 30 mins before being given our room. It would have been nice to have been offered some form of refreshment this seems to be the norm in other hotels that we have stayed in. The room was very clean, light and spacious and pool towels were in the room ready to be used. We were a bit annoyed that if we wanted to use the empty fridge, the hotel wanted €4 per day. The safety deposit box was also quite expensive to hire and wi-fi was not free, which we would expect in a 4 star hotel. We found the pool area to be very bright and very clean. The sunbeds were a little uncomfortable and you had to search for ones that didn’t pop up into the upright position ever time you sat down. We stayed using the all-inclusive option and were a little annoyed that we were not allowed to use the vitamin bar or mojito bar, both of which were positioned by the pool, however we could use the snack bar next to the main bar, which served very nice snack food and was manned by the most smiley, friendly staff. We also were a little annoyed that we could use the piano bar until 20.30, this really made no sense and almost made us feel like second class citizens. In other mixed board option hotels that we have stayed in, all inclusive guests can purchase drinks/cocktails, not available on the all inclusive option for a discount. This hotel however had a lovely cava available and we enjoyed this as our main tipple of choice, The food was very good and offered a good variety at breakfast and dinner (the lunch serving was a little more limited). The staff in the restaurants worked very hard and were very friendly. The entertainment was very good, offering a number of tribute acts and it was nice to have an area that you could have a dance in, once the entertainment had finished. The entertainment bar was also very comfortable and seated around individual tables, rather than in log rows. The location of the hotel was very good, and the Fanabe promenade could be accessed by a lift from the pool area. We prefer this area, as although it has plenty of bars and restaurants it’s not rowdy as some other areas in Tenerife can be. The whole area is currently undergoing a refurbishment and they are putting a lot of money into making it a really lovely place to visit. The staff and their service are the main feature of this hotel and the management should be very proud of them. Would we go back? – Yes, even though there were a few niggles, it was still a very nice, clean bright and enjoyable stay, which has now taken over as our Tenerife hotel of choice.More

Still my favourite hotel!

Me and my Dad have just returned from a 10 day stay at this hotel. We used to visit a lot when I was a lot younger (10-12 years old) and I have always had very fond memories of the hotel. Upon returning, I wasn't sure whether the hotel would live up to the expectations set by my 12 year old self- but it definitely did! The hotel is a beautiful looking building, and I would always admire how lovely it looked (especially at night). Not only did it look nice, but it is immaculate. The cleaning staff do an amazing job at making sure that every area of the hotel was spotless. There was one day when the cleaning staff didn't tidy our room- but this was not too much of an inconvenience for us, so we saw no reason to complain! In fact, we have no complaints about any member of staff. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming- certain waiters even remembered us from the last time we were there (about 8 years ago!). My dad really enjoyed the games which were on offer during the day (Rifle shooting, archery, boules etc.), and the entertainment was always at a very high standard. Even though we weren't travelling with children, it was obvious that the entertainment provided for the children was excellent, The only thing that my dad was annoyed about was the English television channels which were on offer- however after a few days we had ITV1 which kept him happy for the rest of the holiday. I paid extra for WiFi access- a cost which is never hidden and which I found perfectly reasonable. All the other guests that we met were lovely and were all enjoying their stay (most of them all-inclusive guests, and they had no complaints). I really hope I can return to this hotel again soon- it is still my favourite place to go for the perfect holiday in the sun.More
