Design, décor and setting – everything about the Guayarmina Princess gets full marks. The first thing that hits you is the tall imposing atrium at its centre. All gleaming white pillars and porticoes on the outside, it’s more Roman temple than beachfront hotel. Inside, polished marble floors, indoor palm trees and high, cathedral-like ceilings add to the effect. Walk through and you discover the atrium looks right on to two enormous swimming pools, criss-crossed with little bridges.
Then there’s the location. It’s set right by the sea in upmarket Costa Adeje, with a lift to whisk you down to the promenade which you can cross to reach the soft sandy beach. Turn right and you’re a stroll away from little Playa del Duque with its chic designer boutiques. But if you’re after something a bit more full on, go the other way and it’s only three kilometres to the bright lights of playful Playa de las Americas.
Back at the hotel, meanwhile, there’s lots to keep you occupied – tennis, squash, even rifle shooting. And as well as a great pool scene there’s a marina just around the corner where you can hire jet skis.
As for dining, the Guayarmina Princess pulls out all the stops at mealtimes, from show-cooking to sumptuous buffets.

Another Lovely Holiday at the Guayarmina Princess Hotel.
Myself and my wife returned home Dec 09th 2013 after a VERY restful 7 days at the Guayarmina Princess. This was a return visit following a week there the same time last year. This time however we upgraded to a sea view room (242) and were not disappointed and the sun sets each night were superb. The room was very spacious and was cleaned daily. Our only gripe was the standard of the beds and pillows which were very hard and uncomfortable and coincidentally the quality of the sun beds around the pool are not much better. Each time you sat down or up the back rest would shoot up and I am a bit of a light weight, so after a couple of days it was across to the beach where even at 15 euros for 2 beds and a parasol it was well worth it. The food in the restaurant was still of an excellent quality so you would never go hungry but just make sure you have a good walk around and check everything out before loading the plate so you don't miss out. The location of the hotel is perfect...Across the promenade are restaurants/shops etc after which your on the beach...lovely jubbly - and very quiet at night. Just a few hundred yards walk to your left and your in Playa de las Americas where obviously you will find a bit more life otherwise just have a few drinks in the hotel as there are several bars to choose from. Any drinks can be paid in cash or just added onto your room card and settled on your last day. (Ouch) We did a coach Teide National Park trip which was brilliant although you do need a bit of a head for heights on some of the roads. Cost 56 euros for 2 but you pay for your own lunch. There are many excursions available so there is no shortage of choice or if your just trying to de-stress then do nothing. Apart from our first day the weather was sunny and really warm even the evenings..23c - 25c daytime and around 20-21c in the evenings. My wife was given a bottle of champers for her 60th, although not on the correct day I might add so a bit of attention to detail would have been nice. The flights from and to BHX was pretty much hassle free apart from a family of 36 on the way back who were very rowdy and acting rather stupid so the booking in took quite some time and we didn't move for 30 mins which didn't help my wifes poor old nerves as she really doesn't like flying. Would we do the same trip again next year? I'm sure we will unless those currently luckless numbers actually come up. I would have given 5*s but I'm afraid the beds were the downfall which is a shame but don't let this minor detail deter you as I'm sure you will enjoy it. Happy Hols...Mickiep & Lizzy.More
Returned here for the 3rd year running, the hotel itself, majestically stands the loud and proud with a beautiful reception area, but thats where it all stops. The rooms are very clean but now very tired and worn, as for meal times it was just like dropping a piece of meat into a pool of starving pirañas. We only ate there on the first morning and that was enough. We have had some lovely times over the years at this hotel, but time to cast the net again. Lovely area and lovely resteraunts close by.More
Covbaggie, Coventry England
Impressive hotel located on the front of the beach promenade. Plenty of sun loungers, no need to rush out at the crack of dawn with a towel to reserve a bed (didn't stop some people though) Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was good, could always find something we liked although the dining room was more like a mess hall than a restaurant and always a short wait for a free table. On arrival we were given room 1025. If you are an afficionado of Spanish air conditioning installations then this is the room for you, with its lovely views and sounds of the neighbouring hotels a/c system. We asked to be moved and were given a room on the second floor on the other side of the hotel with a view of the beach with no trouble. Costa Adeje is one of the quieter resorts with no timeshare touts and just the odd "lucky lucky" man selling watches and sunglasses. Plenty of places to eat out or for a drink and not too many "Fat Erics English Bar offering Sky Sports, Watneys Red Barrel and chips" type establishments. Neighbouring Playa de las Americas and Los Christianos much busier with lots of English bars and burger outlets. Not our idea of a foreign holiday. Beach really is a 2 minute stagger from the hotel, €15 a day for 2 sunbeds, which are far more comfortable than the hotel ones, and a parasol run by the nearby beach bar who deliver to your sunbed, perfect!! This was our second visit and would go again to both the resort and hotel. More

nice hotel but....
Good location, right on the sea front. Been to this hotel once before and was allocated a lower level room away from the main building, the room was a great size but was looking out on to a brick wall. These rooms are reached by negotiating a series of corridors with no sign postings,(a compass and map would be helpful !!) we requested a move to the main building and were given a room on the 3rd floor which although smaller had a lovely view of Mount Teide. Returned 2 days ago from our second visit, this time we were in room H30 which is on the same floor as reception, nice room with good side views of the sea but it is very noisy at night.It's located opposite the hotels nightly entertainment ( Boney M 'Rivers of Babylon' and the like) ringing out until midnight!! Beds are very hard. Dining room can be busy, but the food is very nice, great pool area with plenty of loungers.This is a nice hotel but like the evening entertainment is starting to show its age, - could do with a bit updating .More

Another Royal Princess
We made a late booking and had to get Thomsons to organise it specially with the hotel as they told us that the Hotel was full. We cheekily asked Thomsons if they would Email the Hotel to request a nice room as a special favour! On arrival we were not disappointed! We had been given a room on the top floor of the 3 story annexe - sea view and the front was only a stair case away from the pool and access to all parts of the Hotel. Had stayed in its sister hotel the Bahia Princess last year - just up the hill from the Guayarmina but this Hotel had a 'back door' lift down to the front / beach - very handy and saves the leg muscles. Weather superb for November - 30 degrees - but a nice breeze so very pleasant walking weather. Hotel spotless - room cleaned daily - and all staff very friendly with an 'Ola' and a smile on every encounter. Food was good for a multi catering operation - Hotel was full with 1100 guests so meal times were hectic - but staff coped with fresh dishes on a very regular basis - perhaps the food could have been a little hotter but the carvery was well organised. We found out that if you tip the maitre 'd with 5 Euros you could reserve a table for the week / fortnight - we learnt this from two German guests when we were guided to their table by a waiter before they arrived - no, we didn't move!! Entertainment was of reasonable standard, but we had seen the acts the previous year at the sister Hotel. On the negative side, yes, the drinks were on the expensive side - gin and tonic was 8 Euros - good job we weren't real drinkers!! The other negative with the area is the army of 'welcomers' who stand outside restaurants and try to entice you into their lairs! Amazingly we had always 'just eaten!' We had been around the Island on trips last year, but did visit Loro Parque which was in Puerto de la Cruz - Worth a visit - but go to the agents in the town - its cheaper - 39 Euros as opposed to 55 Euros at the Hotel. It is also very easy to travel on the regular buses - the Guagua run by the Tenerife bus company TITSA! Very cheap - buy a Bona card from the hotel - works just like an Oyster Card. There's also a Spar shop just up the road - very handy for soft drinks and wine. In fact down on the lift you are really in the middle of the shops - supermarkets gifts etc. There is a Thursday Market which is packed with stalls and people but bargains galore. At one stage we were greeted by the habitual sun glasses / watch seller with 'OK - buy one get nine free!!' - they have got a sense of humour!! Back to the Hotel - I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys a nice rest next to the super pool - plenty of loungers and yes towels were out early - but still room for late-comers not bothered whether you can get the same place every day. Very good holiday - stress free - just what you need ready for the UK winter.More
