Stayed at the all-inclusive Tabaiba, 14-25 Feb, 2013.Room no. 1237. Staff were very friendly and helpful on the desk and you were greeted in a lovely grand atrium, complete with rec. birdsong! Food superb and laid out in an attractive way. Plenty of choice, the fish and shellfish were very nice.The red wine was particularly nice but the white and rose were not cooled, so stayed with red.The lovely themed evenings included Canarian and Mexican, with staff dressed in costumes and mariachi bands playing, and a Chinese buffet. There was also an excellent choice at breakfast. Special diets can also be catered for.
Our room and bathroom were large and comfortable. The balcony was sunny for a while in the morning, but had no view as such, apart from tall palms and cactus, which made it private.
The hotel shares facilities with her twin, the Maspalomas Princess, and you can choose either hotel for the entertainment. All inclusive guests may take their drinks with them.The entertainment was mixed. Shows were varied. We liked the soul music night, the Brothers acrobatic duo and also the team of Chinese Acrobats.The drag impressionist show was quite short. Well done Martin Dunckley, from Astrotrek, who put on a star gazing eve. by the pool. Bookings taken at reception. He had a set of high powered telescopes set on the moon, orion and jupiter. We had a great time spotting craters on the moon and saw the moons of jupiter and it's bands clearly. Hope he does well as this was a new venture and that the hotel keep him on as a permanent show.
The pool complex was very attractive but only 2 were heated. The all inclusive snack bar was very pleasant, as it overlooked the pool, and comes in useful on your arrival day.
Maspalomas beach is about 25mins walk along the side of the storm gulley, passing an attractive nature reserve, where we saw a flamingo and other birds feeding. The beach is gorgeous and stretches around to Playa del Ingles, but beware the 'nudierudies'! Beyond the lighthouse, in the other direction, is Meloneras, with a swish set of shops and restaurants. The walk is lovely here, where you can watch surfers, whilst listening to beautiful Spanish guitar music. The market is about 45 mins north from the hotel along the gulley.(After 20 mins you reach Holiday World where there is a handy loo), then continue to mkt., via the tunnel ahead. Masses of stalls!
Other activities: We booked the jeep safari through First Choice. We went with Raymond, and Joshue was filming the whole thing. DVD's can be bought. Was a great day out.Mountains and gorges amazing. Also went on the Supercat trip which was great. Food excellent, wine not so good! My husband went diving to extend his qualification, which he enjoyed. This was attended at Taurito.
We would recommend this holiday, as the hotel was great and the staff were very nice and extremely hard working. Daily temp. was lovely. A lovely break to escape the bad weather at home. Would definitely return! Thankyou.
