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.

Fantastic hotel and amazing 2 weeks !!!!!
Went to stay for 2 weeks from 5th-19 th may 2016 was very apprehensive after reading bad reviews but this was an amazing hotel. Location - 20 min walk to maloneras or 2 min taxi ride which was v cheap! Pleasant walk and then bear all restaurants, bars and shops. Cafe de colon was amazing bar and did the best cocktails service fantastic and amazing steak and lasagna. There is a supermarket and bar just out the back gate of the hotel. Local buses are very cheap and so are taxis. Grounds and rooms- beautiful grounds spotlessly clean and fantastic pools and bars. Rooms spacious and lovely only prob no coffee tea making facilities but this didn't bother us. For all inclusive would have been nice to have bottled water we hired a fridge and this was â¬20 for the 2 weeks and inc 10 drinks. Got â¬5 back at the end of the two weeks. Rooms have bath as well as powerful shower and lots of storage. Entertainment - we found of good quality enjoyed the shows however they were short but would rather short and good. Hotel shut down at 12. Went to playa d'ingles one night this is very colourful and to cafe Colon by the lighthouse a few evenings where they have singers on. Trips- went on a lot of day trips went on island delight tour with Thomson and this was very informative and a nice lunch included I thought I would be travel sick but wasn't and you get to see the whole island and how the Canadians live. Went to Mogan by boat absolutely stunning that we returned it's called little Venice and is beautiful. Went dolphin watching a little rough on the sea but it was absolutely amazing. Sioux city was a country and western day out and was brilliant had a go at lassoing and dancing in the saloon bar and fab shows can get a taxi there. Also went on jeep safari but was highly disappointed with that they didn't give much information about where you were and sold bandanas to you which u really don't need. We went to Puerto Rico which was gorgeous the beach there is lovely. Went to palmotis park lovely however if you have difficulty walking don't go. Music hall tavern was a fantastic night out with drag queens and the best chicken and chips meal. We did lots more and had a great time. Thomson reps- we had Jess, Kev and another girl who I don't know her by name they were really helpful always with a smile had good chats and also helped book trips and spent the time to work out what we wanted after the welcome meeting. Kev was especially helpful as after mentioning the beds were awful he got a mattress topper fitted within half an hour I strongly recommend u get one of these. Overall - amazing holiday was a bit annoyed having to pay for safe and fridge. Drinks were crap and cocktails which is a shame for all inclusive weather lovely and hotel fab reception staff helpful. Thanks to all for a great holiday hope to return soon x More
Our stay at the Tabaiba/Maspalomas Princess for two weeks.
We came back on the 15th may, the Hotel was very clean and a 20 min pleasant walk from the back gate near the min'y golf and over the road to the beech or 2.5 euro's for a taxi for two, easy! the food was first rate, salmon, steaks, leg of lamb, ex't, salad's tuna, and much more. We took a bus to Port de morgan about 4 euro for two then a ferry back to purto rico 13.5 euro for two, then the bus to our hotel (4 min ) walk to the hotel, a good day out. the entertainment was good (but not all) if you did not like it in one hotel you went to the other joining hotel. The weather was just how we like it very warm with a bit of broker cloud so we did not burn. a very pleasant stay. We took a kettle for our room and gathered tee and milk in tiny cartons for a drink in our room, if you want the fridge you pay extra as you do for the for the safe. all inc can re-fill water from the bars, but half board have too pay for there water every time at lunch ext. I will stay here again. good for families and kids. also the beds were a little on the firm side but spotlessly clean.More
Great hotel for a week away in the sun
My partner and I are just back from a week staying at the Tabaiba Princess and we had a great stay! I was a little apprehensive about staying in the hotel after reading some of the negative comments but it's really not as bad as some reviews are making it out to be. We had a lovely large clean room with a huge bathroom (room 1236).The large balcony mainly looked onto cactus' and palm trees but that didn't bother us. The pool area is huge with plenty of sun beds as it's connected onto the Maspalomas Princess which is basically the exact same hotel (but that hotel hosts more half board and ours catered more to all inclusive. Guests can use facilities in both hotels). We had absolutely no trouble at all finding sun beds at any time of the day. Although most of the sun beds don't have any umbrellas, aim for a sun bed in the 'beach' area were there are quite a few umbrellas and there are plenty of shaded areas around the pool at various points in the day. There is a great selection of food in the restaurant with a different theme each night so the main dishes are never the same. There is a snack bar at the pool area until 5pm which has hot dogs, pizza, chips, ice cream etc. They do also have an a la carte at the swimming area but you can only book it for lunch (at an extra cost). It was always pretty empty so it would be better if they turned it into an a la carte dinner option for all inclusive guests to give them more of an option. Bar areas are great, good selection of drinks for all inclusive (local brands). Don't bother having any cocktails as they taste watered down. I also think the spirits are watered down as they give you a large amount (half a glass) and you can hardly taste it in your drink! The wine, beer and sangria are all great. Unlike most nighttime entertainment you find in these hotels, we found most of entertainment to be of a good standard, particularly the Vegas show. There are also two piano bars (1 in each hotel) that are lovely and chilled. In terms of location, this hotel isn't in the middle of nowhere as some reviews suggest. There is a supermarket and a couple of restaurants directly across the road as well as a number of other hotels in the area. The nearest beach and sand dunes are a 15 min walk away. There you'll find a lovely promenade with shops and restaurants. Playa des les Ingles is literally a â¬4 ride away. Nearest attractions are Aqualand waterpark (about â¬6 in a taxi) and Palmidos Park (â¬12). Negative: I ordered a bottle of cava to celebrate my boyfriends birthday which arrived to our room well over an hour later than I'd asked it to arrive. After 2 complaints to reception it finally arrived with no proper apology/compensation from staff. I also noticed the same bottle is sold at the supermarket across the road at a fraction of the price I paid (not a major surprise as hotel drinks prices can be ridiculous) so I would just buy a bottle and request an ice bucket next time. Overall we had a really enjoyable holiday at this hotel. If you're just looking for a relaxing week away in the sun, close to main areas but not right in the middle of the hustle and bustle then this is the hotel for you. More
Whats not to like!!!!
My friend and I have just spent a week at this hotel, we travelled without our husbands but still felt safe and secure. Room was clean and comfortable with a bath which was an added bonus. Restaurant was large and canteen like but food was very good with a plenty of choice. Pool area was clean with plenty of sunbeds although a nice cushion for the loungers would have been appreciated. Bars were plentiful with a good range of drinks available. To make this hotel a 5 star all it needs is the safe and fridge to be included in the cost of the holiday. Tea making facilities available in the room. Pool towels to be changed everyday. Bottled water available for the rooms. I have been to many all inclusive hotels and this did not let me down and I would definitely visit it again. Very GoodMore

Falls just short of a good hotel
We've recently returned from a week at the Tabaiba Princess. Check in took ages, and we were sent to the wrong floor by the receptionist which was annoying. Not entirely all inclusive, you have to pay for the mini golf, wifi, safe in your room etc. The food was great until one of our party found a very long human hair in one of the dishes on the Chinese themed evening. After that we couldn't touch anything in a sauce. The snacks by the pool were lovely - ribs, hotdogs, burgers etc. All inclusive drinks were mostly horrible, the red wine in particular, but mojitos very nice. The beer on tap at lunch and dinner had been watered down with carbonated water which gave it a pretty unique taste. You'll have to queue for ages in the piano bar to get served unless you tip the waiters. Rooms were clean and adequate. Overall the hotel was cleaned to a relatively high standard although there seems to be a problem with damp in the hotel, as most of the woodwork above the carpet looked rotten. The 'sand' on the beach part is like cat litter... it's very sharp and gets too hot to walk on. Whoever came up with this idea should be sacked. Overall an okay hotel, just a shame it's let down on a few points.More
