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.

So, Thomson and first choice have this down as a 5 star plus. The reality of it is probably 3 star, and then I'm being generous. The food was rubbish had maybe 1 decent meal out of 7. All the drinks were awful, too much sugar in everything. Only the water and red wine were palatable. The staff were your typical unfriendly Spanish types.I doubt any of them are CRB checked. The rooms were tiny, our room was booked as a honeymoon stay and we are given 2 twin beds. All the rooms are very close to each other, it reminded me a bit if Alcatraz in San Francisco. No real views from the room, only the bedroom opposite It's not that close to the beach. Our simpleton first choice travel agent told us we were on the beach. It's over a Mile away. Although there was a sandy volley ball court. Entertainment was poor, same tired old singers singing the same tired old songs. Bar shuts at 12. And they will literally Lock you out on the terrace. Don't leave change lying around in your room. The maids will think it's their tip. Wifi was worse than dial up. Fridge tax, they make you pay to use the fridge. Safe in room didn't work The light switches are all on the wrong circuits. Bathroom light turned on balcony, bedroom turned on bathroom. The shower was rubbish, the bath was small. Even though the rooms are hobbit holes the hotel is quite spread out. Lots of walking will be endured. On the plus side taxis are cheap there is a lot to do outside the hotel. The taxi rank is right outside the hotel Had a good holiday and would go back to the grand caneria. But not the tabiaba princesses. Recommend to a friend 0/10 More
Nice hotel good food but entertainment not great
Stayed here for a relaxing week with a friend. About 25 mins from airport, check in was smooth and lifts to floors. We stayed on second. Balconies aren't secluded you can easily see next neighbours as they can see you. Corridors can be noisy at night. You have to pay for safe and mini bar fridge. Shower was lovely and room clean. Food was ok but very much the same sort of thing most days. Annoyingly if you run out of water in room they don't allow you to refill in restaurant but the tap is very slow. The shop in the hotel has cheapest water 5 litres for 2.50 euros. The bar in piano bar takes ages to be served most of the time and can be the same in bars around the pools. Wouldn't eat crossiants in food area in centre by the pools as pigeons attack it daily despite their best efforts to keep them out. Life guards little scarce if you have little ones. The massage area comes highly recommended but pricey at 48 euros per person per 55 min massage. The beach is a 25 minute walk and there is a shop outside the complex. Hotel shop seemed nice and they have a pharmacy. This hotel is joined with the maspalomas hotel if you get confused and you walk from one reception to another all in same hotel. Only way you know wrong hotel is one has red seats and one has blue. Evening entertainment is saxophone and old guy playing guitar in piano bar. Other entertainment put on is not great, few singers who change words to songs, fav act was the African guys doing little stunts. We missed elvis. This venue closes at 11. It's not just British on our 3 rd day we were joined by many Spanish, Italian and Germans. Some just thoughtless when it comes to sunbathing they squeeze loungers in anywhere. As in right next to you like they are with you. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff work hard though a few smiles from pool waiters wouldn't go a miss. The restaurant staff also work hard. Day trip worth going on is Aphrodite boat trip to top up your tan and if you like night life for 3-4 euros a taxi you can go into town and a place called China white came recommended. The hotel is getting busier now so loungers although lots were pretty crammed in. Also not enough toilets they are spaced out too much but Weather was beautiful. Worth a visit if you want to relax.More
have just arrived back from Tabaiba Princess,my Husband and myself spent a week at this lovely Hotel..when we arrived our first thought was the reception staff needed a bit of training on the customer service side but that didn't spoil it at all...our room was just a basic room nice size not very private balcony but we didnt mind that as we didnt spend a lot of timethere, they was cleaned every day fresh towels daily the cleaners worked very hard :-) it was my Birthday the second day we were there and when we got bk to the room there was a lovely card with a bottle of bubbly wishing me a Happy Birthday was such a lovely surprise...the Hotel was amazing large pools around the hotel all stunning , plenty of sunbeds all day long, don't see that in many places ,the food was the best we have ever had in an all inclusive,.I have come home at least a stone heavier...they have a lovely piano bar where u can sit out and have a few drinks in the night or you could even watch some of the people dancing and there were some who was loving it fair play... first night we were there we went to watch a show in the main bar and had such a lovely night ,entertainment was not to good the rest of the week but we enjoyed sitting outside with a few drinks instead was so lovely just to chill...it also has a sister Hotel next door which is half board you can also pop over to their bars and watch their entertainment as well we did on 1 night and again had a good night...all in all I would definitely recommend this Hotel especially if u want to chill out...nothing much around the Hotel but u can walk down to maspalomas will take u around twenty mins to walk down but there is a path all the way down ..we walked down then had a Taxi Back costing us 4 euros well worth it .could go on and on but I wont...will return to this hotel again im sure .More

Nice and comfortable
Very nice bedroom, very comfortable for a family. Wonderful time spent in the six swimming-pools with different water temperatures. Good food even if with little variations. Good price for the quality given. I would like to go back there.More
Not as good as it was
In the past 2 years me and my partner have stayed here 4 times, our last trip being April 2015 to celebrate my birthday. We always book our holidays through Thomson and never yet had a problem with them. As we had been before we knew what to expect and had expectations because of this. Unfortunately it seems a few things have changed at the hotel! A main factor of our holiday is access to Steam/Sauna. To enjoy a Steam/Sauna we do prefer to be naked (no one wants to sit in sticky swimwear!), well much to our disappointment they have placed signs up in the Steam/Sauna area that everyone must wear swimwear or have a towel whilst using the facilities. For the first time we actually didn't use the Steam/Sauna much and spent most of the time at the beach. Please management, change this back to how it use to be! The hotel is always very clean (I seem to love the smell of the cleaning products the cleaning crew use!) however I would say that it does look as if parts of the hotel are falling apart, especially on the ceilings or down the walls. Food is great, I highly recommend trying the fried milk desert. Weird but yummy! I would like to say we would be returning again however I think on our next visit to Gran Canaria we might try somewhere else.More
