We stayed in the Cay Beach Princess over Christmas and can only say it was average.
We were expecting a 4 star hotel but it does not live up to this. Thomson advertise it as a 4T but the hotel is only a 3 star.
The bungalows were nice but nothing spectacular, the swimming pool was huge but is too cold to swim in - which was a shame. There is a smaller middle pool, which we thought would be heated but was "acclimatised" (in other words freezing). Not a single person was seen to be swimming all week.
The bungalows are very clean and the maid came in every day and even washed up for us, which was a bonus.
Make sure you take a travel kettle though as the only one in the room was an old fashioned boil on the hob one.
The evening entertainment in the hotel was rubbish - so i wouldnt recommend staying at the hotel bar. There are pool tables which have seen better days and a ping pong table and also 2 tennis courts which cost about 12 Euro's to play for an hour !!
The restaurant is ok - we had a pizza and a spanish omelette so can recomend these! We only ate there once so i cant speak for the rest of the menu!
For nice restaurants walk down to the lighthouse on the beach at Faro (not to be mixied up with Faro 2 which is a dump of a shopping centre) which is about 20 minute walk where there are some lovely restaurants and shops - especially in Meloneras. Banderas restaurant do some lovely tapas.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere - Faro 2 is about 10 minute walk and the beach and Meloneras about 20-30 depending on how fast you walk. Taxi to the beach is about 4 Euro or get the free bus.
If you want an actual 4 star hotel i would not recomend this place - the Maspalomas Dunas or the Princess hotel looked gorgeous and are 4 star hotels. Or even try somewhere nearer to the beach as if you have small children you will not want to be getting in and out of taxis all week!
And Thomson completely annoyed me !! They actually booked me and my other half seats on the plane that were not next to each other - The rep said to us "if you pay 15 Euros we will guarantee you are next to each other on the way home" and of course we werent - there was an aisle between us (they said to us if we hadnt paid this money it may have been likely that we were at opposite ends of the plane).
