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.

Not as good as we had expected
The hotel looks impressive on arrival and reception was efficient. No porters so you have to take your own luggage and find your room. The room was a reasonable size and clean and the linen and towels were changed regularly. When the aircon failed, it was mended within half an hour which was good, The food was ok apart from the mid afternoon selection in the pool bar which was awful! There were plenty of sunbeds and pools but there were always children in the adults only pools. The man made sand is more like cat litter and definitely not from the Sahara! The entertainment was poor especially in the Salon Tabaiba and people were walking out after ten minutes. It was also pretty bad in the Piano Bar/Tarraza Bar apart from Tony Lewis who was very good. The bar staff were friendly and helpful. The biggest problem was the number of children who are either screaming, crying or running around without a parent in sight. There are toddlers and young children wandering around on their own at meal times touching the food on the buffet or bumping into someone carrying a plate of food. Most of them are not English. You are never more than a few feet from a screaming or crying child or one having a temper tantrum! They are also in the bars during the day and all night. People were dancing and small children were running in between the dancers. There is no child free zone and at least one bar should be adults only - preferably the Piano/Terraza bar. There were still young children in the bar at midnight which probably means they were tired during the day hence the crying.More

no way the star is correct
We spent the week of the 13th Oct at Hotel Tabaiba princess; there are some good and points to write about. First the bad. On arrival very impressed with the reception. Room was tidy, head boards are made of wicker so pretty dusty, a good hoover would not have gone a miss, cobwebs behind the door separating the bedroom to the hallway, dust in the corners of the bathroom, bath was not cleaned well and we did not get a change of sheets all week. The pillow is made of foam and smelt, it was also uncomfortable. At night it would be cold there was not a spare blanket in the room if you needed it. The rooms above and to the side of us you hear their tv, oh no English TV at all foreign languages, the toilet and showers are very noisy, ask for a top floor. Floors 0-2 have large trees in front of them so no sun on the balcony. Hide you good toiletries from the cleaners ! they use all your stuff, I returned with hardly any perfume left and it was a newish bottle. The bar staff were very slow in serving, in fact they would walk away and leave one person serving when there was a queue, I assume its to give out less drinks and save the hotel money. Or they just could not be bothered, most complained about he little pay they got for the hours they did. Entertainment was poor. The piano bar had the same 3 musicians on alternate days, they played the same songs when they were on, these were great for the older generation 50s 60s 70s. They have two hotels in 1, the left is all inclusive the right half board, both had stages and dance floors in them with different things on at night, the acts they brought in were really bad, most night we walked out. There was no real life at night like dancing, singing or laughs. Everyone I spoke to was bored, many would go to the local town, as the nightlife was better rather than sitting yawning all evening. The toilets are few and far between both around the pool and in the hotel. I think most people used the pool during the day, as they never seemed to be anyone in or walking to the pool toilets. Thomason reps were in the hotel somewhere, if you could find them? Oh and the cats roaming the hotel, not nice The good bit, food was great, hotel in a nice location. If you want just a quiet nothing to do holiday this is your place, taxis to the town are cheap about 5 euros. Its not a 5 star as advertised when I booked, I would say a good 3 star. I feel robbed of my money. For the same price we paid we could have done a lot better elsewhere. I got a nice tan as we had 4 sunny days out of 7.More

We recently spent two weeks at the Tabaiba Princess all inclusive and had a great time. Our room was always well cleaned and the aircon worked well. The staff were always friendly and helpful. There was a huge choice of food from breakfast to lunch at the snack bar by the pool and evening meal with the staff working as quickly as possible to replenish the food and clear the tables but at peak times they did struggle. We used the piano bar for either a cocktail or glass of prosecco before and after our evening meal, the entertainment was good and we always managed to get a table or a sofa. We will definitely go back again.More

Not what you would expect
There is a lot to say on the hotel, I shall begin with the fact money was stolen from my room by a maid even though a do not disturb sign was out on the door, the maid didn't even clean the sufficiently. There were tears in the bed and plastic coming off the side. The food isn't great and it's the same sort of thing everyday. The entertainment is poor and not worth the time. You will also find it is advertised as a 5 * well that is isn't as you would find out, this is definitely not that and never would be however knowing this know I would have never have booked it as it isn't worth the money and isn't good value for money. This is a misrepresentation by Thompson as this is what is says in there brochures. Rubbing selection of drinks, have to pay for fridge in your room. Hotel is also to far away from anything.More
Spent a week at the Tabaiba Princess in September. I cannot fault it, the rooms were clean, the food was good, some of the entertainment was first class, especially The Dream Girls and The Three Tenors. There were a few acts that were not so good but that is to be expected. I have never been to a hotel with so many sun beds. I was able to have a proper swim in the pool every day. Treat yourself to a massage, it's well worth it. We would definitely go back. The only minor complaint was that the aircon didn't work that well and I would imagine this could be a problem in the hot summer months. As somebody else mentioned, you had to pay for wifi in your room, this was a rip off. All in all a good holiday.More
