Hotel Tabaiba Princess

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.

VERY DISSAPOINTING

We have just returned from our stay at this hotel All Inclusive and were VERY disappointed. Let me say firstly this hotel IS NOT A 5* hotel! Its actually a 4*, so looking back now the price I paid I would have certainly not paid for this 4* hotel, I paid because I thought it was a 5* hotel so I feel very cheated. We came to Gran Canaria last year and stayed in Meloneras hotel – Lopesan Baobab. Baobab was a fantastic hotel and was definitely a 5* hotel and was only 2 minutes down the road so very disappointed we didn’t book there again but it was fully booked. If we ever come back to Gran Canaria we will definitely be booking Lopesan Baobab. FOOD The food was very disappointing. Not much variety unless you like fish and only fish! Two of the 7 night I only ate chicken nuggets and rice and a couple of olives! On our last dinner both my husband and I went hungry just ate bread and butter! So we ended up getting a taxi to Lopesan Baobab for dinner and ate like royalty! There was always a huge queue to sit down DRINK Drinks in the restaurant were very limited. They did have branded drinks eg CocaCola, Fanta etc HOWEVER there were two stations for the drinks and the CocaCola did not always taste the same, on three of the 7 nights it tasted watered down and know one seemed to do anything about it. The wine was drinkable but you could tell it was cheap wine Drinks in the bars – I did enjoy the cocktails however again very limited. The hotel is split into two (an M shape) pone side is half board and one side is All Inclusive, they mirror each other completely therefore its easy to get lost believe it or not some people ended up in the wrong hotel going to the wrong bedroom it looked so similar! This is very confusing as if you wanted to go to the half board side you needed to get your drinks at the all inclusive side and take it all the way to the other hotel. SNACKS There are a couple of snack bars but again very confusing! As some are for all inclusive and some for Half board only but some one f the bars that we couldn’t use was actually on our side of the hotel! As far as snacks it consisted of hot dogs, burgers, chips and toasties. I couldn’t find anywhere any crisps and other snacks, certainly wasn’t worth it. There were also flies all on the snack bar a couple times when we went there which put us off. POOL The swimming pool scenery was lovely, really picturesque, I didn’t have a problem with the cleanliness of this aspect, seemed clear and well maintained every day. SUNBEDS There were plenty of sunbeds I think but we did find ourselves having to go put our towels on the sunbeds at 8am LATE CHECK OUT We were very upset by this. We booked from Thursday to Thursday. On the night we arrived we arrived at the hotel just before midnight on the Thursday, therefore missed out on the day, there was no food opportunity or anything. On the Thursday we were leaving out flight wasn’t until 11pm therefore the coach was picking us up at 9pm. We had to check out of our room at midday!!!! Unless we wanted to pay 45Euros to check out at 6pm!!!! Considering we lost a whole day you would think that the hotel would have let us stay in our room on the Thursday on the last day. BUT NO! STAFF The reception staff were overall very nice, accept ONE! There was one receptionist who was so rude I wish I got her name. Staff in the restaurant and around the grounds were all very nice and polite and always said hello which was nice. ROOMS We actually had a deluxe double bedroom (the only room that was left so ended up paying more for our holiday!) The Deluxe room was nicely decorated HOWEVER in the bathroom there were lots of little ants around the sink and towels. They were tiny mini ants which were everywhere! The cleaners however did clean the room sufficiently – apart from the ants – and they were always polite. Thank god we didn’t get the standard rooms as they looked horrible and distastefully decorated. WILL WE BE RETURNING – Sorry I am afraid definitely not! Its NOT a 5* hotel! Even a 4* hotel I think is highly rating this, Go stay at Lopesan Baobob !More

Really lovely hotel, but ...

Just come back from 11 days stay (sept 14). Beautiful hotel and location, wonderful food, lovely attentive staff. Pool and grounds amazing. Only concern was the air conditioning in the room, not really man enough and the entertainment was somewhat lacking. It did seem to cater for the older person in the evening and stopped around 11ish have read some reviews on this hotel and not sure what some people expect . they are the only things that need to be looked at as far as we are concernedMore

Tracy M,

Disappointed

I booked this for myself and my husband as a First Choice Premier 5 star hotel which it certainly wasn't. The hotel was actually a 4 star and a poor one at that. Our room was nice with a good view of the pool but our bathroom was very ordinary for a '5 star'. The food was also very ordinary and sometimes lukewarm with no alternative restaurant but the main one to eat in during the evening. Very limited drinks menu and all drink sizes are small even beer. We gave up on the all inclusive towards the end of our week and ate out just to get some decent food. Some of the tables in the poolside bar and the piano bar were often left uncleared for hours with pigeon droppings everywhere. All in all very disappointing. Also First Choice are unable to get the spelling of my name right!More

Lysa K,

The food here is amazing as well as the swimming pools

I went here on an all inclusive trip with friends. The rooms were old fashioned by design but the beds were comfortable and the shower was fantastic and powerful. The wifi signal was pretty poor and slow though, you have to pay extra for this. The outdoor swimming pools were large with beautiful relaxing surroundings. There is even an outdoor fountain. The food in the restaurant was in my opinion first class! The staff at reception and in the restaurant were friendly, professional and polite. I would absolutely stay here again without a seconds doubt. Check out Palmito's Park aswell and the bird and dolphin show, incredible!More

Really.....dont go there

I returned two days ago........read Angela from Grimsby comments because they are bang on ! I have stayed at this hotel several times in the last 10 years and can say that the standards have gone. I am currently composing a balanced review to send to the travel company, including pictures of blood on toilet seats etc.......lovely. When I receive a reply I will post a lengthy and full review......for now book somewhere else.More
