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.

Stayed here with a group of friends last year and completely forgot to write a review. Don't always review every place I stay but when its really good, I lkke to make the effort. Spotlessly clean and well maintained property. Very good service generally (albeit I could live without being served beer in tiny plastic cups at the pool bar.) Food... excellent choice and quality. Would definitely recommend and id certainly stay again. tiny gripe... early morning aerobics by the pool.... music a bit too loud and our room was immediately next to speakers. Not great when you're a little 'fragile' after a late night. More
A week in the sun
A really nice hotel. kept incredibly clean by some incredibly hard working housekeeping staff but in need of a lick of paint here and there. The restaurant food can be hit and miss, some of the labels are a bit misleading so try a small bit of the food before helping yourself to a big plateful. There's always plenty of salad and who doesn't need a huge plate of fresh salad after spending the day doing very little other than sitting in the sun? Everyone who works in the restaurant and kitchen manage mealtimes like a military operation but manage it with humour, even when hapless hotel guests walk straight in front of them as they're pushing their trolleys along to replenish the food and clearing dirty plates from the tables. The maÃ®tre d's are very quick at seating guests and will give special attention to those with mobility problems making sure they don't have far to walk. It's a shame that the coffee machines produce the same disgusting coffee that is standard in hotel machines, even though fresh coffee beans are being used! Wifi is $19 for a week, and is very slow. You pay at reception and get a log in and password so you can use it on different devices but have to log out of the one first before it works on the next one. The seating area outside the piano bar is lovely, quiet, calm and relaxed but it's a shame it's frequented by smokers. There are some quiet grassy areas too where you can take your towel and sunbathe in the calm of the poolside is a bit loud. The hotel has a small supermarket behind it, accessible by the back gate, where you can stock up on bottled water and snacks, and it's about a mile walk to the beach, which is very easy to find if you walk along the dry riverbed next to the hotel. A taxi ride to the lighthouse is around $3.5 and taxis are often outside the hotel reception.More
ok but for a 4/5 star all inclusive hotel you should not have to pay for use of the safe or fridge or change of bath towels, have to queue for drinks and a table in the restaurant, food changes daily and good choice, area round the pools is horrible no space to move just rows & rows of sun beds, room ok but beds are very hard and have to ask for second pillow.More
4 Star hotel - really !!
We have just returned from a weeks All Inclusive here . The good points - Room clean and tidy, maid service good Most of staff friendly , odd ones a bit "stroppy " Points of concern - Having to pay for wifi and safety deposit , minifridge in room? In a 4* all inclusive ? Never known this before in all our travels Food - very repetitive Lots of queuing for drinks , not enough staff covering poolside bars "Beat the Germans" to the sunbeds - if you didn't get up and place a towel on one before 8am - forget it! Location of hotel - nothing except a small supermarket within walking distance At the time of going , 80% Germans - who were very aggressive towards the poor staff , especially bar staff! Grown men banging their fists on the bar , demanding service , having verbal altercations too! - not conducive to a relaxing holiday!! Not somewhere I would return to being honest . More
GARY H, Preston, United Kingdom
Just returned from the Tabaiba Princess, the hotel is clean and tidy and the staff are all very helpful, we paid extra to have a Deluxe double room, but Thomson or the hotel overbooked the rooms, we never established who as they both blamed each other, however, we were given premium all inclusive bands by the hotel and Thomson refunded us the extra we paid. So we are still not sure who was to blame, the standard room itself was adequate. The pools were excellent and never busy, there were plenty of sun loungers and although we were told the hotel was full to capacity we never felt cramped in, we had to wait sometimes to be seated in the restaurant, but the restaurant staff were very quick and courteous, the food was excellent and plenty of choices, breakfast was busy at certain times and there was always a queue at the drinks machines and the one toaster! I must agree with other posts about the reception staff, we arrived at 9.00PM along with 6 other couples and there was one person to check us in, a very slow process, especially after all the travelling. Also when we had to speak to them some were very helpful and friendly, however others, gave the impression we were wasting there time! Also, the Thomson rep, one in particular was extremely rude and the concept of "the customer is always right" obviously isn't part of the Thomson training!!More
