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.

Revisited this hotel for the second time this year and it lived up to very high expectations yet again. Food beautiful, setting amazing, rooms exceptional, staff polite and willing to help at all times, nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be returning next year and am already looking forward to it!!More

Nice Hotel, Shame about the service...
Great first impression of the hotel although the check in queue took a while. The pool, cleanliness of rooms (except for a small Ant invasion one day) and restaurant staff were excellent. The food in the restaurant was very samey though and the same goes for the pool bar. My issues began when we arrived and were not allocated inter connecting rooms as requested or even rooms next to each other. We travelled with in laws and two young children (2&3yo) and the idea was the in laws could baby sit. We were told we could move rooms in a few days but it's not ideal to repackage everything so we put up with it. We informed the hotel it was my wife's birthday and they said they would put a bottle of champagne in the room. This didn't happen until 5 days after her birthday and ended up being a 250 ml bottle of red and a few pieces of fruit. The so called sandy beach area was very irritating on the feet and takes up a large majority of the pool area. Even worse was that the resident cats used it as a litter tray and my 3yo son put his hands in cat faeces unwittingly. This could have been a health hazard if we hadn't noticed straight away. There is mini golf which is very tatty and they have a cheek to charge all inclusive guests to play. The bar next door to it is also chargeable even though it is on the all inclusive area. Everything that can be charged or withdrawn from all inclusive guests is done so. You get pool towels which is nice but because we were there 10 days and not 14 days they didn't want to refresh them. The worst part was the attitude of all of the bar staff to all inclusive guests (particularly Ernesto). They are friendly to paying half board guests who tip them but throw down drinks and walk off from all inclusive guests. I know this for a fact because my in laws have been here 6 times as half board guests but it was their first time all inclusive. Half board bars give out nuts (to make people thirsty) but they're not available in the all inclusive bar. You also can't get a pint (unless you pay) so have to settle for half a pint glasses. Half board guests can get table service as they're paying but this doesn't extend to all inclusive guests. Most of the time the bar staff serve the nearest person so can't even get the queue right. Sometimes in your favour but (unlike others) I always point them to the right person who was there first. The hotel is not good for toddlers. There isn't a security chain in the room doors so they could potentially just open the door and walk out (ours tried a couple of times and you mainly worry about the night time when you're asleep). The kids club is for over 5's and that speaks volumes. The kids entertainment was also geared up for 5+ so ours could really interact because it was mainly games they didn't understand and not just kids music. The evening entertainment would be what you would expect from the social club in Phoenix Nights. Most acts messed up or the music jumped or cut out. They're not on very long either. All in all, the hotel is cost controlled to the extreme and I won't be going back. The only saving grace was that the restaurant staff were great and the kids enjoyed the pool. More
Me and my girlfriend recently ruturned from our 10 night stay at this hotel. On arrival we was greeted by a very friendly young Spanish lady who was very accommodating to our needs. My girlfriend who loves the Spanish language and culture was very intrested on her way of life and she was happy to oblige and joined us in our room to give us Spanish lessons while wearing a Spain football shirt with Torres on the back while sipping on sangria. The pool area was amazing a vision of beauty from every angle. Most mornings we would put our towels down and jump straight in the pool and play who can hold there breath their longest. I won on day 7 with a impressive 3 minutes and 18 seconds. I could of lasted for longer but the life guard pulled me out . The food was impressive with a array of different cuisines. However on some nights we wanted to hunt for our food like we do back home . After 4 hours we had tracked down and killed a lizard, the hotel was more than happy to cook it for us which we did have with chips seen as we on holiday. All in all a fantastic holiday and would like to thank the staff for helping this happen. Les aged 24 Gillingham Kent England The worldMore
Lovely resort in a great location.
Me and my partner went to the Tabiaba princess resort in early June 2015. On arrival, the reception was understaffed for the arrival of guests from the airport but the staff where pleasant and welcoming none the less. The room we stayed in was on the third floor facing the pool, it was quiet sizeable and very clean. The Air Con was ok but felt that it didn't work particularly well compared with others i've experienced. Only the one english channel on the TV but I guess your not there to watch it. Reasonable additional charges for WiFi, fridge and safe. Food was varied, plentiful and very tasty over the 7 days we where there. All three meals where in the main restaurant with simple snack options at the pool bar. All inclusive gave all this and good quality soft drinks and alcohol. Pool really good and plenty of sun-loungers. Night and day entertainment was average for the hotel but its ideally located for a short work to the local night scene. Melonares is lovely and quite upmarket, just 5mins in a taxi. Maspolomas came across as very commercial and tacky to be honest. A negatives,1, the water to the rooms was turned off on a few occasions for an hour or so, inconvenient if you needed the loo or ill. Really good experience overall, would return.More

A wonderful return.
Our third time to this complex (two Hotels joined together) owned by the same company and used by several British and European tour operators. A really lovely setting,if a little distant from most amenities ! This hotel,like it's sister the Maspalomas Princess next door is set in beautiful gardens with several really nice pools,plenty of sun- beds and shady areas.We travelled with First Choice ( Thomson TUI) and this visit ,we tried fully inclusive as on our previous visits we went Half Board,this proved to be the better option for use this and will be in future. This hotel,like it's sister next door is splotless in all respects,staff friendly and helpful.food is good and varied but if you are a Hot Food person you are likely to be disappointed as we found most of it too cool for our liking. If another gripe is to be offered it would be that,as the complex is very big overall,you can find yourself in a room very far from a lift or stairs.I think a higher floor nearer to a lift would have been our choice,we asked at check- in for this but the allocations had been already decided and as we arrived late evening we did not feel fit enough to start a 'fight' with the night shift receptionist as we had had a very long day,I shall change the arrangement next time. We both think this complex is a very relaxing venue,good for long walks to shops at Melonaras Beach,Playa del Englais both,as well as others are easily reached by public transport.Taxi's are reasonable and plentiful.
