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.

Best short break ever!
The room, the food, the service, the attention to detail was first class. The wifi was only really available in the reception area and was chargeable which was a shame but apart from that I can't fault anything about the hotel it was a brilliant holiday. Thanks Tabaiba just what we needed.More

Just the ticket !!!!
I think we made the right choice for a stay in this resort.If,like us,you don't mind a 25 minute pleasant stroll past the nature reserve to the beach and main resort,this hotel is perfect and much cheaper than those on the promenade. Between the two hotels that make up this resort there are so many places to sit,and so many bars to pick from,day and evening,that you'll be spoilt for choice. Some people have remarked on the queues for hot drinks at breakfast.There are queues,but with at least 6 drinks stations to pick from,all reasonably close to each other,I always managed to get a drink quickly enough.You don't have to go to the one nearest your table,I saw people standing in a long queue when,a few feet away,there was only a short queue. With regard to the bars,I never noticed any preference given to anyone,and was generally served when I thought it was my turn,although I do tend to wait until there aren't many people waiting.(which was often). The drinks(hot and cold) were of good standard,although I think that the practice of giving all-inclusive guests coffee from the" push-button machine" and half-board(paying)guests coffee from a "proper" machine was a bit mean. All-in-all the positives far outweigh the small negatives and I wouldn't hesitate to visit this hotel again in the future.More

2 for 1 in the sun
We spent 1 week early March at this hotel , the only complaint being ,wish we'd booked 2 weeks !!!!! It used to be two hotels ,the Maspalomas being half board ,the Tabaiba A/I , now working together as 1 great resort Hotel !!! This meant freedom of choice !!! with 2 shows every night , 2 piano bars , and 3 outdoor bars !!! most A/I were in the Tabaiba but a few were given rooms in the Maspalomas side !!! Check in was quick and efficient and the staff very friendly and helpful !! Our room was on the second floor facing the dry river bed ,very ,very peaceful and quiet with birds singing and palm trees rustling in the gentle breeze !!! the room was clean and spacious with plenty of storage and hangers ,if you need more pillows ,just let reception know, nothing was too much trouble !!! the fridge is locked and is extra as is the safe !!!!!! Although not on the front ,its a pleasant walk to get there and takes about twenty minutes !!! I f it was on the front ,it would be more money and not so quiet !!! Can't have everything !!!!!! Lots of sunbeds ! should be no trouble unless you want a specific spot !! very few unbrellas ,but lots of palm tree to use as shade !!!! The buffet although not the biggest we've seen was very good ,with lots of choice and very well cooked and presented !!! help yourself drinks , just look around for the shortest queue ,it was'nt a problem!! All the staff were pleasant and worked hard !! The shows were good ,with a professional act on every night ,my favourite being Elvis !!!! also some nice music was played in both piano bars !!!! Would we visit again ??? MOST DEFINITELY !!!!!!More
Great place to stay
This hotel is a victim of its own success. Very high standard of cleanliness, good food, helpful staff, it has everything you could wish for.. The only improvement that could be made is replace the awful slow tea, coffee machines which create long queues at breakfast time,with tea and coffee pots on the table. A cold buffet for late arrivals. Check in is painfully slow. Still one of the best hotels we have stayed in and would go back again.More

Stayed at the Tabiaba for the second time and have stayed at the half board Maspalomas princess as well it's the same hotel one side is half board the other AI if you like a drink stay at the Tabiaba not that much more.Reception was a breeze I had e-mailed ahead and requested a quiet room on the '3rd floor and that's exactly what I got.The rooms are spacious clean with a good sized balcony,they are cleaned 6 times a week .As always I find the food excellent with a great choice steaks fish pasta Mexican Spanish Chinese themed nights my only complaint is my wife is vegetarian and while there are some veggie options not enough and she did end up eating a lot of salads and they do have an annoying habit of throwing bits of ham in most things.also at breakfast instead of queuing for poor standard coffee from a machine a hotel of this standard should serve tea and coffee at the table.We love the atmosphere in the evening where after dinner you can relax in the bar listening to a musician while watching the strictly wannabe's strut there stuff.then choose one of the two live shows,most are excellent tributes just what you want when you are on holiday.we always stay here in November and find the pool areas fairly quiet not many ankle biters always a bonus there is one heated pool on the half board side but once you are over the initial shock of the cold pools they r great to.I would recommend several of the Thomson trips especially ' taste and tradition' and the Las Palmas trip.Garbo 's and the Music hall tavern are both first class and do go to palomitos park.all in all I love GC and baring a few minor quibbles with the hotel for the money you can't go wrong I will be staying here this November see you there!More
