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.

This hotel is deffinately not 5* it seems more like 3-4*. The rooms were ok not like a 5*. The reception staff were useless all they knew was how to check customers in and out. If you asked them any other questions they could not help. Even the WFI was very slow and you had to oay fir it. There were even charges fir the safe. If you are looking for a 5* hotel than this is not the one. The food was ok not brilliant. The swimming pools were not very clean either.More

A rude shambles of a hotel in a state of poor repair.
Recently travelled to this hotel with my wife for our honeymoon (not that the hotel even acknowledge that) we had emailed in advance, and mentioned it at check in. The hotel staff are generally rude (except for those on the Piano bar), the food is poor, the rooms are filthy and in disrepair, the hotel has numerous maintenance issues (cracked tiles, and there was a pool light and electrical wire floating in the swimming pool for 3 days during our stay). They charge for everything the possibly could, e.g fridges, safe, pool, crazy golf, non standard drinks. All inclusive guests get drinks from concentrate, literally push a button and get a terrible cocktail between 9-23h (there is no provision for tea and coffee in rooms or drinks over night) Only saving grace is the beautiful reception and pool (although only about 10 umbrellas are available around the pool areas (which is made if gravel not sand).More
Average with lots of potential
Overall we had a lovely holiday at the Tabaiba Princess, there were just a few things that let it down. The hotel itself was very nice. The reception was beautiful and the grounds were gorgeous. The pool was perfect and was huge - perfect to spend time around most days! The food was absolutely fine for what we wanted and we ate at the restaurant every night. Now the negatives. The hotel advertises that it has air conditioning in rooms, however our air conditioning was so terrible that it was hard to sleep at night. We complained on 3 separate occasions but were told by reception and by our rep that that is just the way it is here. The final night we had to get up at 3am and it was just so hot that we couldn't sleep at all. I dread to think how some families with little children cope in that temperature. The second thing was the lack of service from the staff. One day my boyfriend cut his finger quite badly from the wall of the swimming pool where tiles were missing and hadn't been fixed. I went on the look out for a plaster and asked our rep who had absolutely no idea. I then explained the problem to reception and they didn't have any plasters either. They gave me some useless gauze which did not help. The thing that stunned me the most was that they didn't even ask how it happened. You would think they would want to get those tiles fixed or they could have asked where it happened but they weren't interested. Again, it's fine for us as we're adults but if this was a small child I would think the story could be different. The only other small negative was the 'all inclusive' service we paid for. We had to pay extra for our safety deposit box and mini fridge (which I have never seen at an all inclusive hotel) and also if you wanted any cocktails that didn't look like slush puppies! So overall if was fine for us and we did have a lovely holiday we were just surprised that they didn't seem to care about servicing their customers very much. A good tip for any other visitors to the hotel...get off the coach to check in first as they have the slowest service I've ever experienced. More
Me and my boyfriend have just got back from a weeks stay at this hotel. Before we came, we were so excited to go the pictures looked great and the hotel looked decent. We got there late at night about 12 which when you've been travelling all day is a very long time. When we got off the coach there was a group of 20 people that got off to come to our hotel. Baring in mind, the hotel is busy, you would think more then one person would look to check us 20 people in? Well.. no they didnt. 1 person stood at the desk and called people from the que. Not once was we welcomed, they just wanted our passports and sent us on our way. When we questioned breakfast, they just sent down stairs. Thats all. First impressions, were terrible. The next day we got up and went to breakfast. When I say standard, I mean standard. There was just basic stuff, the friends eggs were dripping with oil and the scrambled egg was so disgusting my boyfriend literally refused to even touch it. The only good thing I would say about breakfast is that they did slightly cater for people who had gluten and lactose intolerences. The food that I had at this hotel was vile. I have uploaded some pictures, honestly there were so many people that moaned. You could tell that this would be left out for days. Even though we were all inclsuive we ate out most evenings. The cocktails are from a vending machine, they click a button and a red, blue or green cocktail comes out. I didnt drink these, so I cant tell you what they tasted like, but what the hell is all I can say too this. El Gaucho in Playa del Ingles, lovely! Would recommend there and lovely places to eat in Faro. Literally 3/4 euros in a taxi. So worth it. Cost wise at the hotel is stupid too. To rent a fridge is 15 euro, to have wifi is 20 euro per device and to have a safe is 20 euro. The hotel is clever as people realise these things are a must and they make there money based on this. One or two members of staff said hello or smiled during the time we were at this hotel. The maids would come in your room to clean at 8:30 in the morning, they didnt understand the words "we're asleep", they would still try to come in. On one of the days, I didnt feel to good from being out of the sun - so I went up to the room and put on the do not distrub sign. The maids still come in, and when I told them I was sleeping because I didnt feel well, once again, they still tried. I think they got the point, when I had to point at the door in the end. During my stay, they didnt actually clean the room. They made the bed (not changing the sheets) and left the empty cups of water and bins full? The only memebers of staff that I actually thought were nice, were the ladies doing the massage + the staff at the piano bar. I couldnt fault these people, they are kept on there toes all day and are really busy. Nice, genuine people. I will be writing to the hotel because I ended up having to eat out every night due to there terrbile food and I think this is unacceptable due to the fact I had paid for all inclusive. All in all, the hotel is OK. The rooms are very basic and the pool is nice, but the service and the food are terrible. I will never be returning to the hotel and will be expressing my views via email. I've travelled and world and will only write reviews for amazing hotels, I've never written a bad one and I'm not one of these people who are picky but honestly, me and boyfriend have never experienced anything like it.More

This hotel is lovely. We stayed for 2 weeks just 2 adults. Entertainment is really good. food is excellent, plenty of choice. The drinks are not watered down and you could even get Malibu and baileys, which is unusual on an all inclusive holiday. The snack bar by the pool is really good for lunch, the chef is there all the time and continually cooking so it is fresh, please be respectful and clear your own table in there. there is only the chef and 1 person doing the bar and they work extremely hard so rely on you to tidy up after yourselves. The pool is amazing and so gradual that you can lay in it, which was much appreciated as the weather was very hot. there is very little shade where you lay around the pool so buying an umbrella should be one of the first things you do, the lady in the shop downstairs from reception sells them. A taxi in to maspolomas only costs 3 euro 20 so it is worth getting a taxi both ways, it is walkable but being so hot makes it a chore and it is not necessary to walk it. The shops in town are all really nice and there is no hassle to buy at all. the beach is amazing as are the famous sand dunes. You do have to pay for a safe and wifi but seeing as we were skyping home everyday it made it worthwhile for us, although you can pay by the day if you want to use it intermitantly. the staff are all really friendly and helpful. the one thing I would say is, and this is nothing wrong with the hotel, there is a strict dress code in the restaurant for the men in the evening (long trousers and a shirt or t.shirt with a sleeve, even if it is short sleeve) however I think women should be more respectful that the code is there, some of the things women were coming in to dinner in I would not even wear on the beach! I would definitely return to this hotelMore
