Our winter break of a week to ten days just before Christmas is not an easy choice for us - we don't want to do long haul, but we'd like good weather and a high quality service: the Princesa Yaiza fits the bill perfectly!
Okay, the star rating is a bit misleading to those used to hotels in UK or mainland Europe, because as has been pointed out - this certainly isn't the Ritz - and we wouldn't want it to be! Luxury is having all or most of your needs fulfilled before you thought to ask: the team at this hotel does an excellent job in providing this service. Friendly, efficient and relaxed - they made us feel comfortable from the moment we arrived.
We know Playa Blanca from a previous visit and often dined at the Marina Rubicón - this time we added evenings at the hotel's Kampai and Don Giovanni restaurants. The food at Kampai is not the best we've had, but it was all very good and it proved to be a fun evening in the company of fellow guests. The Don Giovanni gets a special mention for the quality of its ingredients, preparation, presentation and service - it knocks the spots off most of the local restaurants. We dined outside and listened to live music - it was like being in a little town square, with guests coming and going to provide interest and atmosphere (okay, the wine helped, too!)
The quality, design and maintenance of the hotel structure is at a very high level - I know some reviewers have complained about room noise, but we were not troubled by this, and slept soundly. The comfortable, well appointed and spacious suite was very hard to abandon at the end of our stay!
We intend to return next year at the same time, which pretty much speaks for itself.
