Hotel Tabaiba Princess

A pair of mega-sized pools are this hotel’s calling cards – along with fun activities like giant chess and archery.

This hotel is linked to the Maspalomas Princess Hotel, and you get the share of its 2 whopping pools and handful of bars. Food-wise, there’s a buffet restaurant and à la carte lunch place.

Maspalomas Beach – with its famous sand dunes – is just 20 minutes’ walk from the hotel. There are some shops a little closer, plus more, along with bars and restaurants, a 5-minute drive away in Playa del Inglés.

Good but not great 4star hotel

Travelled in November and the weather was very hot. Smoothly organised transport from airport and although a little slow on check-in we were given a welcome drink and front staff were friendly. We found they were always ready to help with queries or requests. We had a de-luxe room overlooking the pools and it was always kept spotlessly clean. There was enough room on the balcony for sunbeds if anyone wanted privacy. I watched the towel on the sunbed brigade creeping round in the dark even though there were hundreds of beds. The communal areas were also regularly cleaned and I can't understand the comments about cats as we only saw the same three all week. The food was good but not exceptional and there was a wide selection to suit everyone's taste. The pleasant waiting staff were always clearing the tables and refilling any dishes as needed. We certainly had no complaints about the dining room. No complaints about the bar staff either and we certainly found no favouritism towards any nationality. The outside area behind the piano bar was a really good area to sit in the shade during the day and at night it was very enjoyable to sit and have a drink and listen to the live acts. Although the hotel is not close to the beach it is a pleasant walk to the dunes and Meloneras. The proximity to bus stops meant we were able to visit other parts of the island - Puerto de Mogan is a must. We took one Thomson tour - the Premium Island tour in a minibus convoy and saw the spectacular scenery of the interior. Would agree with people who say Wi-Fi and safe should be inclusive.More

Can reccomend, but!!!

Had a nice weeks holiday here with another couple who regularly stay here, the plus points are very comfortable and clean rooms, indeed everywhere was clean and in good order, plenty of sun beds and a nice pool albeit a bit on the cold side this time of year. We stayed on an all inclusive option so were surprised and disappointed to find we had to pay for the Wi-Fi, the room safe and amazingly the room fridge, charges for things that should be included in the room rate. The food was generally on the good side with plenty of choice but not of a great standard and the spirits are so weak compared with leading brands.More

lower end of four star some good and bad points

we booked this hotel for a special occasion and expected more as it was billed as Thompson platinum, it didn't meet these standards however we still had a good time. positives there was always plenty of choice of lovely food the reception area is stylish everything is kept very clean lots of choice of things to do at night as two hotels are joined, we actually enjoyed lots of the acts there were never big queues at the bars close enough to walk to the beach and into melanoras although this does take a good 30 minutes negatives the bar options weren't very good, we don't expect to have wine from pumps at this class of hotel, an actual bottle with your meal would be expected our room was shabby, furniture very old and marks on the walls, and no sockets other than one behind a table. the bed and pillars were very hard the Thomson reps were at best uninterested, when I spoke to them about the market they didn't even look up to reply the pool area doesn't present as big as the hotel likes to pretend as it is shared by two hotels and is very very crowded with sun beds, the pretend beach makes no sense there isn't anything to do close to the hotel so don't expect to be able to walk at night although some of the staff were lovely, some weren't in particular one clearing tables in the restaurant who was very rude to English people basically ignoring them, not bothering to clean their tables but laughing with Spanish guests, we soon learnt to avoid the area to the right of the front of the restaurant. I wouldn't be put off by the negatives as this hotel was cheaper than the wonderful hotels we saw in melanoras and overall we had a great time there, just combine days around the pool with time at the lovely beach in maspolomas. two tips to enjoy the area is to get out into the mountains where the views are stunning and visit the moonlight cinema.More

Poor service

Returned from hol. On Monday this week. We found the hotel to be stunning on arrival, the reception staff were very helpfull at all times, the food was excellent, really very good across the board however the service in both the bars & restaurant was very poor. Very slow as if under staffed. Definitely not helpful at all and quite irritating.More

Beautiful Hotel

I'll start with the positives of this hotel. The reception was beautiful, very modern and stunning. The room we stayed in (Junior Suite Garden view) was lovely. Bed was huge, and even had a lounge area with sofa and T.V. The food was excellent, loads of choice. Breakfast had to be the best meal, anything you wanted for breakfast was there! The pools were gorgeous, 4 pools all adjoined by cute little bridges with lots of bars in between, 2 of the pools were heated as well which was lovely. The staff were very friendly and helped a lot. Pool towels were included at no extra cost and there were hundreds of sunbeds to choose from, so no rushing in the mornings! Good choice of drinks at the bars and service from bar staff was brilliant. Always somewhere to sit in the evenings. At one point we locked ourselves out of our room... Oops. But the staff were excellent at getting us back in, and even gave us a spare room key just in case! There were lots of shops in the hotel and you could get anything you needed, drinks, souvenirs, sandals, clothes etc.. Negatives of the hotel.. Although the rooms were cleaned, it wasn't impeccable. Hairs left on the walls of the bathroom (not mine, there when we arrived) and the maids were not very good at making the bed. We took back the duvet to see the sheet had not been pulled or tucked it. Being "all inclusive" we assumed that we wouldn't have to pay for our drinks... This was not the case in some of the bars, where all inclusive wasn't a option. All of the bars closed at 11 o'clock. So if you wanted a drink after this time, you would had to go without!! The man made beach around the pools was quite frankly, awful. It hurt your feet as it was just tiny little stones, but at least the local cats had a lovely big litter tray... The hotel is two hotels in one. One for half board, one for all inclusive. You can still get your free drinks in most of the half board bars, however there were two receptions. This got slightly frustrating as whenever we needed something from reception, we were sent to other reception. The entertainment... Erm, what entertainment? A couple of old blokes with a keyboard and a CD of Robbie Williams on, singing over it was probably the best bit of entertainment this hotel had.. It was very funny though, but I don't think that was the idea. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, as it is stunning. However, don't expect a 5 star as although it looks wonderful, cracks will start to show after a couple of days. But definitely a 4 star! Don't let bad reviews put you off, because at the end of the day, we would stay again in a heart beat, we just have to get used to making our own bed!More
