We had a great holiday despite paying five star prices for a three star experience. The Tabaiba Princess was clearly amazing in its heyday but we were given the impression that the management (hotel or travel agency) have scraped away at the quality to save money for so long it has become a problem.
Maspalomas is a lovely area with plenty to do. It's a 15 min walk to the best beach and shops in the area.
The hotel and pools are spotlessly clean.
If you engage politely with the staff, some are very pleasant
A lot of the buffet all inclusive food is surprisingly good quality, you get a free pass to the pay as you go restaurant (but they don't tell you)
There's plenty for kids to do - they will love it
The all-inclusive drinks are non brand. The spirits are very weak making cocktails taste a bit flat.
Drinks are metered out in small portions. At one point there was is one staff member in the all-inclusive and yet 10 in the same area of the 'pay as you go' (the hotel has a mirrored layout).
Rooms are fairly basic, lack power outlets and we experienced some fuses blowing.
You pay for a fridge, use of a safe and wifi.
Premium cost suite rooms have no real advantage...and you still pay for the same 'extras'
The gym is really old and has almost no cardio equipment.
We would go back - but we would probably stay in the non all-inclusive part of the hotel and eat out more often at the beach area.
With a bit of investment and less scratching around for cash this hotel could easily be a proper five star resort.
