“excellent service as always”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

me and my hubby arrived on New years eve, for a week,On arrival at 4.15pm, we were informed we were on te 6pm sitting of the gala dinner, of which we should have worn a jacket and tie, but should ave been informed at booking really.... It wasn't a problem. The gala dinner was stunning. this hotel is now all inclusive. The hotel is spotless, although the spa area between the pools need of a little attention, We love Gran Canaria, and would be happy to return again..... It represents excellent value for money

Just returned from a relaxing week at the Tabaiba Princess 14th 21st January we booked this holiday at short notice and it certainly exceeded our expections in every respect The hotel has a impressive reception area with helpfull and friendly staff. We were given a first floor room which was very spacious imaculately clean with maid service every day and beautifully furnished We asked for extra pillows on the first day which were delivered immediately. small balcony which didnt really get any sun but it wasnt a problem. Good selection of food at breakfast and evening meal and snacks available all day.Huge pool area with massage centre, sauna etc plenty of bars for drinks throughout the day and night.Pool area also has a man made beach and yes people do get up early to reserve sun loungers but there are still plenty to be had even if you are not a early riser !

We booked this holiday looking for a relaxing week in the sunshine and that's exactly what we got. We are well travelled and have high expectations but we have no complaints about the Princess Tabaiba.
Our room was at the end of the 2nd floor over looking the pool. The balcony didnt get any sunshine but it was very pleasant to sit out on and look out to the beautiful pool area. The room was a good size and was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. The bed was a bit hard for my liking but I actually got quite used to it as the week went on. I asked for more pillows on the first morning and these were delivered promptly to the room.
As mentioned the pool area is lovely; we're not sunbed people so I won't go into the towels reserving sunbed debacle but we did have a giggle at everyone rushing out first thing in the morning!
The food was excellent; my husband admits to being a bit fussy and he always found something to eat. There was a large salad selction, 3 hot food selections and 2 grill choices each evening plus all the vegetable and side accompaniments. My only criticism might be that it would have been good to have name tags beside all the dishes as sometimes it was hard to tell what was what! We had no issue over the self service drinks. This meant you could have what you want when you wanted.
We didnt go to the main show room so I cant comment on the entertainment but we did go to the piano bar and enjoyed the 'Strictly Coming Dancing' displays! Again it was easy to get drinks and if anything the spirits were too strong certainly not watered down in our opinion!
We had a walk down to the front and it took around 25minutes walking very slowly taking it all in. We enjoyed the walk along to Melanores and then we got a taxi back which cost about EUR3.
We also took a taxi into Yumba at Playa de Ingles to breakup the week. We had a chinese buffet meal and 2 drinks each for EUR26 - bargain. The taxi each way cost EUR4.
On the Friday we took the tour from Thomsons to Mogan which was a really enjoyable morning out. The coach took us to Puerto Rico where we took a boat to Mogan then we had 2.5 hours to look about and then a half hour journey back to the hotel. Mogan was very pretty and we enjoyed looking round the market.
So overall a fab holiday. We would recommend the hotel and would love to go back again.

We returned from a week in this hotel on the 13th january 2013. This was our second visit to this hotel as we had previously stayed here in 2011. What a disappointment! Our first stay was fantastic and the friends we holidayed with also came in January 2012, therefore this was their third visit, but never again. I spent the first night sitting in the loo reading a book so as not to disturb by partner as the mattress had springs sticking up everywhere and was the most uncomfortable bed i have ever attempted to sleep in! I reported this to reception at 3am when i could stand it no longer, only to be told that i couldn't have a replacement mattress but that we would have to be moved the following morning. Having not had a wink of sleep all night, i returned to reception at 8am to be told to come back at 9am when i was informed that i could have a replacement mattress afterall. I had also reported that when i tried sleeping my toes also kept getting caught in the many holes in the sheets but these weren't changed for a few days! We also found the food to be of below average standard and never warm and for the first few days i had an upset stomach. There were hairs in the bathroom when we arrived which did not move for 3 days and also scraps of old soap left on the bath. This is certainly no longer a 5 key hotel as First Choice believe and you would be hard pushed to give it 4 stars, our company of four suggest it's now a 3 plus but if the standards fall any further it won't even derserve that. It definitely still has the wow factor from the outside and the entertainment was better than our last visit but, overall, we were all thoroughly disappointed and will not be returning.

Room Tip: This hotel is shaded by the beautiful trees and palms but i would recommend the rooms facing the poo...

This is my first review on tripadvisor and would just like to say what a nice hotel the Tabaiba Princess is. The room was nice, the food was in abundance and of a very good standard and if I were to visit Maspalomas again I wouldn't hesitate to book here. As always you could nit-pick and find minor faults byt nothing worth mentioning in my opinion.
