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.

Give my Granny a facelift will yer
Just returned from the Guayarmina Princess after spending one week of contemplation. What is it? It ain't no Princess that's for sure, it's more of an tired old lady with serious personality issues. If you expect me to crucify the white monolith you'd be as it has some redeeming features, here's my satirical look at Granny Mina. Firstly, ignore the brochure it's like my passport photo from 20 years ago..it bares little resembles to what it looks like today. Here's a few gems: "The hotel has 2 swimming pools" ...no it doesn't it has 1 small one separated by a "bridge" by this warped logic this means if I employ a centre parting I could would have two heads! "It's all-inclusive" ..no it isn't, it's not even nearly all inclusive, you have to pay extra for anything worth having, and here's a few. Beach towels washed, pizza, premium drinks, certain cocktails, coffee ( not the bilge water from the machines) safe, fridge, orange juice (not the rancid cordial that's free) wifi, crisps, bicycle hire, tea making facilities!....you get the idea. "Its four star" ..again, it isn't. If you want to see proper four star hotels, facing the sea turn right out of the hotel and you will see three or four and a cavernous difference. The Mina thinks that by asking gents to wear trousers for evening meal it produces some meaningful gravitas towards a four star environment, which is like putting a dress on a pig and trying to convince someone it's a stallion. This is where the management fail to understand what it's about, it doesn't matter about the trousers at dinner time, it's more important to have clean rooms, toilet seats that aren't damaged, baths that aren't stained, and have facilities that are "included" in the package and not trying to pick pocket guests with charges for everything. The beer in the hotel is awful, we went out and paid for our drinks even though we were all- inclusive, even Jim a Northern Irish fireman winced as gulped from his pint glass. Day three and we managed to get a sunbed! It was like a sea of towels, probably half had bodies on them, people left the towels there all day without thought for other guests. The rooms although small and tired had everything in them (except a safe, tea making facilities and a fridge...Yorkshire people won't pay for extras!) but they were cleaned everyday, had English TV, comfortable bed, AirCon and a sea view. Granny Mina does have some redeeming features, it's located right on the beach, some of the evening entertainment was good, some of it was in fact excellent. The food was samey, but a reasonable standard ( but not four star) and the dining room was run with ruthless military precision, you were never queuing long and nothing ever ran out, the staff in there worked harder than a Deepcar Dripping miner. Meal times were all very civilised, at some all-inclusive hotels feeding frenzies can be common place, but not at Granny Mina's The staff in general were four star however, extremely helpful, genuinely friendly and ultra efficient. They work very hard at 100 mph and always seem to handle the pressure with a smile. So who is this hotel for? It great for families and is quiet and relaxing, no rowdiness, football shirts or distastefulness. TIP...don't go all inclusive, there's no point. The drinks are gash and 1 Euro gets you an excellent beer right outside the hotel, and the restaurants are competitively cheap. A waiter told us Granny Mina will close next year for a facelift and not before time. It would be a good point in time for the board of the princess group to sit down and review their policy on "all-inclusive" and either become more honest and genuine instead of pick pocketing guests with extras. Thompson are complicit by withholding essential pre-booking information that could ultimately hit a families wallet hard. In summary I reckon Granny Mina is a 3 star pretending to be something better, its like sticking a big exhaust pipe of a 1litre corsa and pretending it's a M5. If they do upgrade and modernise and either scrap the all-inclusive all together or decide to offer a true all inclusive package this could become a true gem .... a four star hotel. More
Amazing holiday for mums 70th, staff and hotel brilliant. Best holiday, you always hope for the best but this was truly awesome, would recommend to anyone, most relaxing holiday in years, food great and location exceptional More
Fantastic! Can't wait to go again!
Amazing hotel all staff so accommodating and friendly. There is something for everyone from entertainment from various clubs for kids to aqua gym and water polo for the adults and a hilarious elvis impersonator as part of the evening entertainment programme. Food was also fantastic as we would usually go out on one evening for a meal outside of hotel but there was no need as there was always something new in the hotel restaurant. Hotel cleanliness remarkable and the cleaning staff were also so friendly. To sum hotel up I would say modern hotel with traditional friendly and welcoming feel. More
Nice Hotel, needs some TLC and average food
The Hotel has a nice location and the staff are friendly, fun and helpful. Our rooms was ok, not a great view ( the next door hotel air cond units ) the also made quite a noise. the sound proofing between the rooms and the hall way was poor, Inconsiderate people making too much noise at night on the way back to their rooms, hotels spend a lot of money on dÃ©cor and give you a paper thin door. Checking could do with an improvement - a number of us arrived at once and there was only one person on the desk - why - you were aware we were coming ! Food was average, each day was much the same, some of the fruit and veg was poor quality, the fruit juice drink despensers were awful either weak or very strong, the coffee wasn't much better. the bread cakes and patisserie looked nice, but lacked taste, and at times were stale. The same with some of the Hot dishes - looked nice but tasted bland - do the cooks taste their work ? All inclusive - wasn't you could not have all the cocktails - but you could get each of the dirnks making them up form the bar - why - outside bar food - again you could not have all the dishes - not sure why. Why allow smoking in the seats next to the doors between the lobby and pool area - all that happens is the smoke blows in.More
Lovely hotel, poor food!
On our arrival at this hotel we was told our son was not on the booking!!!!! After digging out my paperwork and showing them that he was booked in the reception staff didn't even apologise for this mistake and made me feel like it was my fault! The hotel was very nice and beautifully clean in all areas. Loved the fact that there was lots of sun beds. I must say the staff were very friendly and always smiling ( except for the reception staff) The hotel is in a fantastic location and with beautiful views from our balcony and from the pool area. The only thing we were disappointed with was the food! This was very average and felt like I eat the same food every day! the crazy business of the restaurant was very stressful too.More
