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.

We travelled to La Palma from Gatwick, through Thomson. Everything went really well. We were greeted at the airport by our Thomson Rep and shown to our pre-booked private taxi. The roads in La Palma are not for the faint hearted, the island is high and so the road can be very windy and steep, our driver got us to our destination the La Palma Princess & Spa in good time. The views are spectacular and you can see the complex of buildings and swimming pools of La Palma Princess & Spa from high up on your journey down towards it. Really beautiful. The hotel was very clean, our room was exactly as seen before going, clean, comfortable, eight hangers each side of the wardrobe, a safe. It was a nice big room and had a balcony that overlooked the mountains, palms and you had a nice view through from the balcony through the building of the sea and swimming pools. It was also across from the dining hall and lovely restaurants that are open on specific days for bookings for dinner. The hotel is as it says on the description quiet and quite isolated from anywhere. There is beach that you can walk to past all the banana plantations on the island, but the beach is not recommended as looks unsafe as a steep climb down and not used by many. The views over the sea are spectacular and there is a little cafÃ© to get food and a drink and just relax. There is cycle hire and also trips to go on if you want to, these can be booked through your rep who are at the hotel at specific times. We went on two trips - Round the Island and the North East Experience, both were very enjoyable, if not tiring days, with breathtakingly beautiful scenery, well worth going. La Palma is a very pretty volcanic island, very biodiverse and environmentally friendly, has interesting history and our tour guide Rudi was very informative and entertaining. Coach drivers very experienced. On Round the Island you climb 2300 metres high in a coach and stop off, above clouds, walk around, surreal and wonderful experience where you can see the famous telescopes. (No Toilets here). You can use toilet facilities in village that you stop off on the way down. Rep will tell you more about the trips that are available. If going on any trips you can ask for packed lunch from reception as part of our all inclusive, basic lunch sandwich apple etc, bottle water. You can get tea and coffee facility in your room from reception and access to your safe for a few euros. As mentioned in several reviews, and on the website La Palma Princess and Spa Hotel is not near lots of things and particularly popular island for hitchhikers, some incredible walks to be done. As a couple we thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. The reception areas have lots of large sofas and seating areas, very relaxing. Service we found good. Entertainment as expected. This holiday lived up to our expectations in every way.More
This was our fourth visit to La Palma Princess as it still never disappoints. The hotel is quite remote in its location but we like this. The setting is superb and the grounds are well maintained and very extensive and you never fell overcrowded even when the hotel is fully occupied. The staff are always polite and helpful and the rooms well maintained and cleaned. The food is of an excellent standard and there is plenty of choice, if you have problems then you must be an extremely fussy eater. We have always found the waiters to be friendly and attentive. The Thompson Rep, Jay is very knowledgeable on most aspects of the island and its local cultures and very helpful. The activities staff work hard and there is an extensive program for those that want to join in, rather than just sunbathe by the pools. The evening entertainment could be better and more varied but is not a disaster. The island is magnificent and and totally unspoilt with several national parks which are well worth a visit. If you enjoy walking there is a very comprehensive network of paths throughout the island all well as a comprehensive guide. The scenery is stunning and it probably rates as one of the best Canary Isles in this respect. We always hire a car for the duration of our stay and have found many spots which the tours will never get to. It also gives you the freedom to visit the local villages in the evening or afternoon. We have found the drinks supplied to be reasonable, we are not cocktail drinkers, so cannot comment on those. If you want top quality wines then you will have to pay accordingly, we don't have a problem with that. All in all an excellent hotel, with very friendly staffMore
We go here every 2nd week of November, this place has it all! Excellent rooms Excellent facilities Excellent entertainment team Clean hotel Self Service soft drinks/beer/wine/bottled water Good food, great selection Sea views for late brekky Cant fault the hotel Little bit steep getting around if ur not good on your feet, but the hotel can ferry you around in a golf cart if needed ð 5 Star ððð»ð¾ðð¶ð More
We have just returned from a week at the La Palma Princess and had a fantastic time! The hotel Itself is lovely, beautiful views over the pools & sea, rooms are spacious and cleaned to a high standard. The food was really good, there was a theme every night from Italian to Mexican and a La Palma night. Freshly baked croissants every morning was amazing! All the staff were really friendly and always went out of their way to engage with our 9 month old son. We had such a relaxing time! Lovely for families & couples alike! The reasons I didn't give it 5 stars: - the bar at night always had a very long queue and they often ran out of glasses. I think if there were more staff then this may improve. Or, get rid of the half board option so that people on all inclusive can help themselves to soft drinks, wine, beer & water just like in the daytime & dining rooms. - the nighttime entertainment was really bad. If you enjoy a good evening show then you'll be disappointed. There's plenty other bar space to go and have a drink if you don't want to watch it! Overall, we had a great family holiday and would return to the la Palma princess for a relaxing family holiday in future! More
