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.

We've stayed here many times and whilst I agree with previous reviews the rooms are ready for a refurb, which I gather may happen next year, we still had a great stay! It's a big Hotel so yes the dining room gets busy but if you look at the traffic light advice it can work perfectly fine. We particularly enjoyed the lunches, plenty of fresh salads and lite bites, ideal at lunchtime. Dinner was plentiful and a good choice for all tastes, my husband is a very fussy eater and he always found plenty, especially the sweets. We like entertainment in the evening and the great animation team made sure it flowed well from the mini disco to the 1st act, main act and then a disco or singer. We particularly enjoyed Mr Sister, Comedy Elvis and the 3 Tenors. All the staff are so friendly and the waiters are always smiling! The Hotel is spotless in all areas but I agree with previous reviews that the smoking area needs re locating as at present you have to walk through it to the pool and the smoke blows indoors at night, very unpleasant for non smokers! The location of the Hotel is so good, we like to walk in a morning - turn right at the back of the Hotel and there is a lovely walk to Adeje, turn left and you can walk to Las Americas or Los Cristianos. One tip on wifi, if you don't want to pay the Hotel's charges then there are plenty of local bars offering free wifi, I also found my provider, O2, was cheaper than the Hotel. Another great holiday, thank you Guayarmina management and staff! More
Good Hotel - a few niggles!
We have stayed at the Guayarmina and the sister hotel Bahia several times before. I prefer the Bahia as you can have your dinner poolside rather than in a dark basement - my mother prefers this one due to location. Things have changed a little over the years Negatives first..... Wifi once again needs to be free - never been to a hotel that charges for wifi ever! All the local cafe's have free wifi! This year we had no one offer to take the bags up to our room, we struggled to haul them upto our room No complimentary bottle of cava for staying before - prob due to the man behind reception not writing it down when he asked if we had stayed before. He was far too busy chatting to the other staff. The girls on reception later in the week were very helpful however when ordering us a taxi. Room wasn't cleaned one day as we asked the maid to wait 5 mins for us to get out of her way - she didn't bother to come back! Food has become poorer quality than it used to be - always found something to eat and I'm super fussy but I wouldn't call it a quality meal - cheap sausages for brekkie, more fat on the bacon than actual meat. We were never offered a room to shower in despite our flight not being until 11pm - cleaner was in the room by 9am and said we were not allowed back in after breakfast - we had removed our bags into the storage room but thought we would keep the room for a shower before checkout time of 11am - we were not given that option! The noise from the work happening in the hotel next door is annoying - especially as it was going on all day - louder when doing the days activities and our room was facing the hotel being renovated. We are aware of the fact it is not the Guayarmina at fault but Thompsons should have let people know! Thompsons reps nowhere to be seen - called at the office but always closed - people were complaining about flights being changed twice. We didn't have any note through our door from the reps as you normally would to say anything about our flight time or hello welcome to the hotel - nothing! Smoking area right outside the doors to get to the pool meaning you had to walk through a smoke screen to get to the pool every morning. Also lots of people smoking at the sunbeds - there needs to be a smoking area away from those of us who don't wish to smell like an ashtray. Positives..... Room 3004 was a good size and overlooked both the sea and the pool area of you looked to the right - cactus city was below us. Animation Team as always we absolutely fantastic - very attentive and loved what they do! Zizou, Rafal and Juliana - absolute superstars! Lots to do all day if like me your not a sun worshipper. Entertainment was ok - although there is only so many times you can watch a parrot show and a fashion show! Need to mix it up a bit and get some new acts in. Mister Sister show once again - absolutely hilarious and no visit to Tenerife is complete without watching him. Pool area good - lots of kids around which you don't get at the Bahia. But they were under control and didn't cause an issue. Lots of towels on sunbeds from 6am onwards - we always managed to get a sunbed though so it wasn't too bad. Location fantastic - lift down to the promenade making it easy for someone who can't walk far. All in all we prob will return - just hope the renovation plans for next year don't bump the price up too much. More
AMAZING hotel fab holiday
Have returned today from 14 nights at this AMAZING hotel. Hotel is spotless and staff so helpful. How anyone can criticise the food here I have no idea. I'm very very fussy and thoght food was fabulous. We usually eat out lots on hols even though all inclusive but only did so twice in the 2 weeks we stayed as the food was so good. Yes the restaurant is loud and busy and far from relaxing but the food is good and it runs like a well oiled machine. Staff get everyone in fed and out again with minimal fuss. Always found something to eat and enjoyed many a lunch at the pool bar. Wine with dinner good. So much so by second week was on 2 glasses not one lol. Lots of complaints on here re reception staff but we always found them helpful and on the whole freindly Isabella deserves special mention as always had a smile for us. Loved afternoons at the moijo bar with fernando for ice-cream and a drink. Our little temple of solice we called it. Lovely view and lovely relaxing music. Bar staff helpful and never had to wait long for a drink Andrea lovely and always smiling and saying hello, lovely girl. Pool area and hotel as a whole spotless . Nothing 2 much trouble and If asked for anything ie extra pillows were there before we got back to the room even. Pleased with room 3036 we messaged Hotel for high sea view room before hand and got it so thrilled. Hotel situated in perfect position to wander left or right and did both lots. My only gripe was smokers. Smoking allowed in all outside areas which was horrid for none smokers as kept having to move or breath in second had smoke. I do beleive area outside glass doors especially should be none smoking as this just blows back Into indoor sofa area space so breath it in indoors too. This is the only thing I was disappointed with otherwise a perfect 2 weeks away. If return to tenerife would 100% rebook this hotel . Thanks for a lovely holiday xMore
Due for a refurb. and needs it
Been going to this place for several years and it appears to be going downhill. The place not only needs a refurbishment, the restaurant needs looking at, the variety of food at dinner time has reduced and to a lesser extent, the quality. The fact that men have to wear trousers to dinner is a joke, track suits, scruffy jeans worn with flip flops and tatty Teddy shirts whilst women can wear jogging shorts and a vest makes the ruling pointless. Bar prices are ridiculously high, â¬14 for a litre of beer whilst 40cl can be had forâ¬1 at a nearby bar. If you enter the hotel from the pool area you will have to run the gauntlet of about 20 tables set aside for smokers. On the plus side, the staff are excellent, couldn't fault anyone, they went out of their way to be helpful.More
Just returned from a two week all inc holiday at this hotel I can't understand some of the previous reviews on this hotel as regards food as my wife and I were blown away with the amount of choice on the daily menu always tasty very well cooked and well presented the staff do their upmost to seat everyone quickly and efficiently which they do very well given the sheer numbers of guests in the hotel 10/10 on the food and service the hotel itself is positioned perfectly on the costa adeje strip lifts give u access to the walk way and the main pool area and sun loungers hold a commanding view over the beach and Puerto colon this hotel is impeccably clean nothing is to much trouble u ask u have it or its. Done asap the staff are very help full at all times this hotel is rated in the top ten 4 star hotels in tenerife and it's well deserved my only slight criticism is that where the glass sliding doors are that lead to the pool this is where the smokers gather and if you are sitting inside on the sofas and the wind is in the right direction you will get a face full of cigarette smoke I would recommend that this be made a non smoking area also the hotel can be very noisy with people coming and going so if you are the type of person who likes to retire early try to get a room away from the main reception area and lastly I'm not sure if it applies to all bathrooms but there doesn't appear to be any extractor fans in the bathrooms which is ok unless u have bad botty problems then the odour can linger lol that Said we had a fantastic holiday here I can't recommend this hotel enough wouldn't hesitate in returning in fact if we do go back to tenerife we will book this hotel straight away so top marks to the hotel and all of their hard working staff 10/10 well done ð Oh and one more thing why go half board all inc all the wayMore
