Families have plenty to keep them busy at this hotel. And grown ups will love the extra pools, restaurant and chill-out area they can exclusively use when they book an adults-only room.
Thanks to its hillside spot, this hotel has fantastic views across the Atlantic. And it won’t take you long to reach the sea and sand – you can get to Playa de Esquinzo via steps at the back of the hotel.
What’s great about this hotel is that it has grown-ups-only bits that are just for you to use if you book an adults-only room – including an à la carte restaurant, a bar and 3 of the 4 pools. And at night, you’ve a choice of venues depending on whether you want music or shows.

This is a large pool and sits next to the children's pool, so you can keep an eye on the little ones from the comfort of your sunbed. It's heated in winter and there's a sun terrace with sunbeds.

You'll be able to help yourself to the buffet lunch or order snacks such as pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers and sandwiches.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Club Jandia Princess between 15th-22nd June. We had an early start back in the UK so when we arrived we wanted a quick nap and a shower to freshen up. But after a 20 minute wait to check in, we were told our room wasn't ready and to come back in an hour. Not best pleased, but we were able to leave the suitcases in the lobby and have a wander around the hotel, grab a drink and a snack before evening meal. Finally got access to our room and both were very pleased, spacious and clean. Not brilliant views, but we didn't use the balcony so not an issue. We were silver bands so therefore had access to the adult only section of the hotel, unbranded alcohol and all inclusive up to 11pm. Our issue was the black bands (mainly German's and anyone else who upgraded) on several occasions they got served at the bar before the silver bands even though we had been queuing before them. A bar worker even said to my boyfriend "him first and then you". The bar workers generally give silver bands fizzy drinks from the pump where as black bands get glass bottles, but sometimes the bar workers would be confused by their own rules (worked in our favour anyways). Also disappointed with the lack of cocktails, only 3 on the menu and all very sugary, sickly sweet. Food on the whole was excellent, at La Choza and Antigua, so much choice, something for everyone. La Choza was our favourite, beautiful view, nicer food and much quieter. Beware of the birds but they aren't too much of a nuisance. With the silver band you get 3 a la carte meals which you have to pre book. Definitely book the a la carte meal at La Choza, beautiful food. We weren't so fussed on the a la carte meal at El Lagar. Highly recommended the Chill Out Bar in the adult section for the day and Bar Coco Loco or the Sports Bar for the evenings. Some of the entertainment was amazing, the magic show and urban tango. But then some of the entertainment was dreadful including Grease and Aladdin where the staff mimed over the soundtracks. Thomson welcome meeting worth going to as you learn about the trips they do and information about the island and the local market. Reps were lovely and always around if you needed assistance. The hotel operates a no reserving sun bed policy, but other guests didn't stick to this. We were always able to get a sun bed but it sometimes meant our sun bed would be in the sun for the morning but not the afternoon. So try and reserve your sun bed early as possible in the adult section. Also recommended hiring a Balinese Bed for 30 euros a day! Perfect views, bottle of bubbly and a platter of fruit. Make sure you book the day before. Swimming pools a bit chilly but you soon get used to it, very refreshing! Amazing holiday, perfect views, gorgeous grounds but don't think we would return, as in my opinion an all inclusive holiday should mean all inclusive and not based on a hierarchy of different colour bands.

Good if your German. Banding system ridiculous. All inclusive should be just that. Every time you order something they look at your wristband. Bar staff need better training in customer service. Pool area packed with best sun beds being reserved by 8am. Won't be going back. More
Lovely hotel but feel Like a 2nd Citizen at times only late arrivals get champagne reception?? Rooms were clean however the banding isn't fair black wrist bands get anything bottles of water not a cup and also branded drinks where sliver bands have local spirits and after 11 have to pay for a drink?? All inclusive should be that and if you want a branded drink then pay for it!! Not a five star hotel but clean and rooms were done every day, Staff at reception ok bar staff were lovely happy and helpful!! Entertainment upstairs was terrible for a '5*' Hotel!! This should Be reviewed !! More
We arrived back home early this morning, and we have had a fantastic holiday staying at the Jandia princess hotel. We stayed in a suite in the adult only area, and it was so lovely, and had 2 rooms that we needed as not good sleepers. The bed was big and comfy, there are 2 tv's but we never got round to turning them on, a outdoor area with sunbeds, garden furniture on the patio and Bernese bed. There is a dressing room with wardrobe and tea and coffee facilities. We found the whole hotel to be very clean and pretty and the beach is wonderful. There are a few steps down to it, but, unless you have walking or breathing problems, it,s not a problem. The main restaurant, always had a big selection of well presented and delicious food, very nice wine, and fast service from lovely friendly staff. The pools were bit cold when you first get in but you soon warmed up as you move around and there was entertainment most evenings and lovely bar areas where we always had a great time talking to other guests and staff. It was a safe, calm and happy environment, and everyone was helpful especially the Thomson rep Kate, who is there most days and not only a lovely girl, but very professional . We went on a couple of excursions that we booked with her at the hotel, and must recommend the Galeta Paradise! Our arrival was after 9pm when the restaurant closed but they laid on a delicious buffet which way exceeded my expectation, and we both loved every minute of our stay.More
I returned two weeks ago from Jandia Princess hotel. My holiday was all I had hoped for from beginning to end. I have read the negative reviews and wonder just what people want! The staff were all very attentive, but I have to mention Bridget and Daniel on reception who went above and beyond also Laura R in the chill out pool. The cleanliness in all areas was outstanding and the gardens were very well maintained. The food was plentiful and a great choice at all meals. The only negative thing I would say is that in all other all inclusive hotels I have stayed in,water was included. There was an issue if you had a silver band and not a black band. I would most certainly like to return as soon as possible and would like to say a big thankyou to all the staff and also Ms Kurz, customer relations. Hope to see you all soon! Barbara KnillMore
