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.

Nice restful holiday
Stayed all inclusive and had a very enjoyable week. Room and bathroom excellent size and kept very clean all the week and linen and towels changed regularly. Room air conditioning could have been better as the temperatures were between 30 to 34 degrees throughout the week and only reduced a few degrees throughout the night. Food was plentiful, varied and snacked were available around the pools throughout the day. Some of the pool drinks staff could have been much more pleasant towards the customers and smiled a lot more. The hotel had NO pool side umbrellas which were really needed due to the high temperatures and consequently customers needed to keep moving their beds into the shade throught the day ( good exercise!!). I also find it inappropriate to have to pay for wifi, security box and room fridge on an all inclusive holiday. After saying all of that I would most certainly recommend this hotel. I would go back.More

We have just returned from holiday @ The Tabaiba Princess Hotel and had a very enjoyable break. We stayed on an All Inclusive basis and the choice of food is excellent. We have stayed AIll Inc in many places around the world - from Mexico to Dom Rep to Europe and the Hotel had the best choice of food we have experienced. It was always hot and replenished on a regular basis. One bad point is the wine in the restaurant is warm and the beer is the usual AI gassy type - my husband couldn't drink it. The spirits are fine and the cocktails in the main bar fine as well. We did try the snack bar at the pool the first day, but I didn't enjoy the choice and eat in the main restaurant for the remainder of the week. We spent most evenings in the piano bar listening to Tony Lewis who was very good and only saw one show - the Spanish dancers , who were excellent. There is not much nearby the hotel - 1 shop and there is a restaurant on the corner - which is where you pass by for the 20 min walk along the canal to Meloneras resort with its many designer shops and restaurants. Our room was on the second floor, we could just abt see the pool and we were pleased of the view of the many Palm trees. The room was cleaned to a high standard and the bathroom was a really good size the only complaint the AC very week. The pools are the best features. It's a gd 4 star hotel but not 5 star as rated by Thomson holidays !!! You have to pay for the safe 13 euros, we didn't pay for fridge! Wifi we paid for!!! 4 euros for a taxi into resort. I was concerned before we travelled that the reviews were not very good and I was even thinking of changing hotels but was glad I didn't as it was a decent All Inc hotel, gd food, drink - apart from beer - clean with a great pool and plenty of sunbeds - what more do people want - nowhere can please everybody but little niggles you have to let go and enjoy the holiday you have gone there to have, so if you have booked and are concerned by the negative reviews ignore them and just Enjoy .More

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
