It’s all about the pools here – the hotel has a jaw-dropping 11. Great sea views top things off.
Pools are a major focus, with 11 in all, including a huge one with bridges. Food-wise, there’s a buffet restaurant, and a late-breakfast venue with fabulous sea views.
This cliff-top hotel is a real get-away-from-it-all place – you’ve just got the surrounding banana groves and the Atlantic Ocean below for company. When you want to get out and about, though, there’s a bus stop outside.

So we stayed here 30th June-14th July. We grabbed a cab with ease outside the airport doors, and beat the stampede to check in! Worth just under 40 euros any day! ð The complex is in a gorgeous setting by the sea among banana plantations. The best things about the holiday- -Well stocked shops on site -very easy to hire a car for the day, and well worth the money... Beautiful island! ðð» -Made use of the small but well equipped gym everyday. -manageable run around the parameters of the complex takes the edge off the all inclusive gorge guilt! -well maintained grounds & pool areas -Excellent mini club & animation team!! ðð» -selection of shows. -I'm vegan & never struggled to eat well -very lovely happy female staff member usually serving at the disco bar! (Small very slim with brown/blonde hair) She was cheerful & made a clear outstanding effort with guests to get them served!! -Better breakfast at Choza! -lovely pizzas -Jay was ace! Very informative! -Luke (animation) FABULOUS! The less desirable bits- -room gloomy, tired, & in need of deep clean!! (6009) -unable to upgrade room -the cucumber tasted of 'chemicals' (other guests agreed) -the night that new arrivals came was the poorest for range/standard of food. other nights such as Mexican would have been a better 1st impression, as all other nights but Thursday's were lovely!! -VERY slow service of drinks, particularly at the pool bar! The reception bar was little better. Staff busy themselves stocking etc instead of serving the guest!! Very annoying. 'Nancy' was miserable. -plastic Cups for drinks were awful... Stacked wet from the washer and tasted of detergent which bubbled up your drink. Very off putting & unhygienic. The disposable cups were much better. -Tea/coffee cups ran out at Choza every day. -All eating venues seem to set tables for 2 people, rarely 4. -Flies attacking food everywhere! -The dull folklore dancing needs to go!! (Sorry). Overall, a good holiday. Mainly owing to the setting & animation team. Charlie. More
Excellent animation team working all day and evening until 23.30 with activities and entertainment. I went for 2 weeks with my daughter and loved it and could easily have stayed an extra week or more. The island is beautiful so I recommend you request a picnic if all inclusive and see what is beyond the mountain that overlooks the hotel otherwise there is so much else on offer at the hotel in which you can partake.More
If you want a nice chilled out holiday this is for you food pools rooms all fantastic. Our only fault was evening entertainment not great. The dj needs to play music for all ages not only for younger. More
We chose La Palma as we wanted a destination that was unspoilt, quiet but interesting, sunny, accessible and reasonably priced. The island scored highly in all those areas, but let's rewind... Airport/arrival - La Palma from the UK is around a 4 hour flight, we arrived tired but excited. We didn't realise there is only one flight in from Gatwick & Manchester per week, this means the flights are full. The airport is small and there is a one hour transfer by coach to the hotel we chose. The journey is along some very twisty, narrow roads and takes in a mountaneous region with sheer drops in full view so if you suffer travel sickness it may not be the best. Upon arrival the coaches (2-4 can arrive at once) then disgorge the 'mass' of people into reception for check-in, which quite obviously becomes a bit of a free for all. However, the rep was obviously aware of this regular situation, and gave us the heads up, that if you found yourself at the back of the queue to go directly to dinner on arrival which we did. By the time we got back after eating, the queue was a lot shorter and we were able to check in. It was dark at this point, and although we were given some fairly sketchy directions to our room, the complex is very big and we found ourselves wandering aimlessly around trying to locate our room (which we did...eventually) And that for us is where the negativity ends and the positivity starts! The room was lovely and comfortable, though a free safe (you have to pay 2 Euros per day to use) and free wi-fi (again chargeable) would have been welcome, as would water in the room fridge which was empty (you have to obtain bottled water from the bar to stock your fridge) but those are minor points really. The hotel copes brilliantly with the large number of guests of varying nationalities, and the selection of food dishes and overall quality of the buffet style meals is outstanding. If you take the all inclusive package the value is exceptional. The bar, pool area, gym and spa facilities are excellent too, as was the weather while we were there, though obviously that's not unique to the La Palma Princess :-) We loved our stay, the hotel surpassed our expectations, and it's easy to see why it enjoys such good reviews. Would we go back? Generally we never do, preferring to try new venues but in the case of the La Palma Princess we may just make an exception. Well done!More

If large people with body tottoes are what you like then it's for you ... Personally I would rather stick pins in my eyes! All inclusive means cheap plonk from taps and all you can eat carvery. On the positive side great pools.More
