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

Just came back from a week here. Lovely hotel & most staff lovely however some seem so miserable. The alcohol & cocktails aren't great but food was lovely and always a variety. Couldn't have asked for a better pool and outside area and not far from the beach. Would stay here again! More
Return visit to this resort. room junior suite with garden and balcony Room and all of the hotel and grounds lovely clean well appointed but the garden and balcony were not user friendly. Shaded by trees and shrubs. Constantly covered with tree debris and bird droppings. Not suitable for small children as the garden area was not securely enclosed .Washing line insitu. I would advise a higher floor with pool view. Food excellent plenty of choice and "free from" available too. Snacks at the pool bar Nightly entertainment in 4 different areas at varying times. Day time actives too and kids club Staff very helpful and friendly. Massage hair and nail appointments on offer. Small number of shops in the complex. Pools and pool areas clean with choice of tiled or sandy area's. small gym not used but is available to use for late check outs No room service only soap and body wash toiletries. Pool towels in room change as you wish charge 1Euro. Purchase safe use on arrival with reception.More

Two weeks flew by, the staff, the facilities and the surrounding area was simply stunning. I can honestly say that if you are going to stay in Gran Canaria, make it Maspalomas. The walks on the promenade are simply sensational. Sun set dream!More
My son and I stayed in the Tabaiba Princess for a week in June. It is a 4 star hotel, rated 5T by Thomson and First Choice, and is comparable, if not slightly better than, other 4 star hotels I've stayed at on holiday. The pool area was lovely, and plenty of sun beds! The food was varied, a good selection and good quality. It is all self service. I would be surprised if everyone could not find something they like at every meal although my son was disappointed they didn't serve chips every day ð³ The rooms were a little dated but spotlessly clean. Contrary to other reviews I found all the staff to be friendly and helpful, without exception. The activities were good, in particular, Lola, who did the aquagym was a delight. I was disappointed that there was no yoga or Pilates while I was there as I had seen it advertised. There was some nice restaurants about a 20 - 25 minute walk away at the light house and also some lovely shops. Its a pleasant walk and flat. I think the hotel was excellent value for money but may prefer to stay somewhere a bit busier next time, but aware I'd pay more.More
Booked this holiday to travel on the 11th June 2016 with first choice, having just booked on impulse I did not look up the review until after, first choice class this hotel as a 5* premier having been on a few 5* premier holidays with first choice I can honestly say this hotel is not quite there yet.. Hotel itself is absolutely lovely can not fault it at all, very clean and well maintained only slight issue pool area didn't seem to have been cleaned wasn't the cleanest. Rooms basic but again clean. On arrival having ready other reviews was little worried on how we would be treated again not one issue with any staff from start to finish of this holiday couldn't of asked for more, is a big hotel and two hotels in one (both identical gets a little confusing where your are at times). Yes you do have to pay for your safe, fridge and wifi which in 5* premier I have never had to before, and should be made more clear when booking. Yes you don't get tea and coffee facility's in your room but you can take as much back to your room from bar/restaurant as you like. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others as I had great week there. Entertainment ok catered more for older generation in my opinion and bars close too early. But I will stress this not a 5 star hotel so don't expect 5* luxury. Oh and don't go off weather apps there rubbish, was telling me it was going to be 22-25 all week was 29 plus everyday ran out of high factors so be wary it scorching! View from my balcony below. More
