We visited the hotel in February half term, as my husband has wanted to stay here for years, but we had been put off by the price. It really is extremely impressive with lovely social areas, spacious rooms and attentive, helpful staff. It is absolutely massive but all areas were spotless and you could always find some space if you wanted it. It did however seem to lack atmosphere.

We had read in reviews that people had found the pools cold - but thought that we would be able to deal with this. Please do not be fooled - the pools are freezing and any adult who says it is pleasant to play with their kids in the pools - heated or otherwise - is lying! We did go during unseasonably cool weather - but when you have 27 adults and children sitting in a jaccuzzi, while all the pools are empty - there is something wrong. We stayed in D block, with 2 beautiful pools for children - but they were unheated and therefore unusable. From our balcony each day we watched family groups arrive there, and then watched the children paddle and then get out of the water - as it was impossible to go in and swim.

My daughter (2yrs old) loved the mini disco in the evening and we went into Kikoland with our children twice. The outdoor play areas were not really suitable for children over 5 - my 6yr old son got bored very quickly - and again, other than a barely heated paddling pool for the under 2's, the other pools there were too cold to use. A small bouncy castle, suitable for about 5 under 3's, seemed to be the only additional facility for half term.

We had a 2 bedroomed room in D block, which was very spacious. Not too family friendly though. A kitchenette with fridge - but no crockery or cutlery. A powerful walk in shower in the family bathroom, but an over bath shower in the smart ensuite. 140 TV channels, but only a handful of news channels in English - in the cool weather, one children's channel would have been useful. A turn down service that regularly arrived after 8.15 pm - when we had already put our youngest to bed.

We were also disappointed by how much sound carried within the block - we were woken up at least once each night by crying children in other rooms - not our own children. The people above us regularly dragged furniture at 7am and 10.30pm and every sound carried.

The b&b basis was great - the Kiko restaurant opened the day after we arrived, so we could eat a relaxed breakfast in a restaurant filled with families. Drinking beakers for children rather than glasses, and children's cutlery on offer might have been useful. This might seem picky, but I think when you pay what you pay to go to a hotel like this, you should be able to expect these little extras. Service generally in this restaurant was excellent and we also got smiles and had coffee delivered promptly on arrival - a real plus!

lThis is a lovely place to stay - but I wouldn't come with my children, nor would I come out of season, as in cool weather there was nothing to do in the hotel.

This hotel is spotlessly clean, well managed and spacious. We stayed B+B, the buffet breakfasts are from 07.30 to 10.30 and have a good variety of food from fresh fruit to deep fried bacon! There is no noise at night in the pool-facing rooms although a surprising amount of sound comes from neighbouring rooms e.g. kids chattering, shower operating etc.
The upper pool is heated and the sun loungers rarely fully occupied although on some of the February days we were there Scott of the Antarctic wouldn't have braved the chill wind and overcast skies. The lower pool was freezing and very few folks used it.
The Thalasso centre was very well run. I'd recommend the 1 hour swedish massage. A real antidote to the stresses of winter.
The marina is about 700m to the left along the promenade but had the air of a deserted settlement. To the right, the promenade goes for miles through and beyond the harbour. The resort is small and seems to attract older retired people and younger families with quite a few Spanish families on hols. The restaurants in town were very variable in quality and we found that a head count was a fair guide to food quality.
The hotel rooms have a mini kitchen with microwave, kettle, fridge (no freezer section so no ice self sufficiency).There's a supermarket across the road from the front of the hotel.
The bathroom/ shower area has no extractor system and steams up as does the bathroom mirror.
When the sun did emerge our only poolside quibble was the measly choice of four cocktails at the cocktail hut by the pool. If a place sets up a cocktail shack, a menu of four is a bit odd.
The colder than average weather and wind we encountered would prompt us to look elsewhere in winter, but this hotel is exceptionally well run and maintained.

We were attracted to this hotel by the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. There is much to like about it. Like most people we were upgraded when we arrived; in our case to a suite which was very well furnished. The view however was onto the pool from the balcony and onto a corridor from the bedroom. So effectively, the bedroom had no real window. The staff were on the whole courteous and helpful, although we had one example of brusqueness when we arrived. The food was good if slightly expensive . We thought the 20 Euro charge for teabags, milk and water was excessive and annoying. We met several couples on their tenth or more visit:who loved it.

Our problem was that the week we stayed was very chilly with a north wind. There was no way of heating our suite apart from an electric fan heater which were given on request. We thought that there should have been some otherway of heating the rooms in a 5 star hotel.The corridor outside the bedroom was constructed with open ends, no doubt to produce a gentle cooling breeze in summer. In February it transmitted a cold north wind. The public areas in the hotel were vast and they were chilly too. I am sure the pool area would have been lovely in the warm but we hardly used it.

We travelled at short notice and headed for Playa Blanca. It was about 9pm when we got to the Princesa Yaiza and needed somewhere for at least the night. We stayed in a Junior Sea View Suite. When we decided to stay for the full duration of out trip, we changed to a non sea view double to economise. The view was of the car park with no afternoon sun but you get what you pay for. It is streets ahead of other hotels we have stayed. The rooms, facilities, pool, and staff are all top notch! Breakfast is buffet style and the variety is super. Only point I'd make is that they deep fry the bacon, but that apart the chefs make excellent fresh omelettes on demand.All of the staff were very helpful.
