Bahia Princess Hotel
Ranked #22 of 59 Hotels in Costa Adeje
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2009

This has been our 13th visit to the Bahia Princess since it first opened. The hotel is still as good as it was when it opened and the Management and Staff cannot do enough for you. Food is excellent and service in the restaurant efficient and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone in this hotel from the top to the bottom. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and there is ongoing maintenance all the time. We will certainly visit again in October this year and despite being senior citizens the steps do not bother us in fact it is a good way to walk off all the excellent food you have eaten. We note other reviewers have commented about bar prices but we feel they are no more than anywhere else and certainly not any more than some of the other bars in Costa Adeje who have entertainment and of course you do have the comfort of the hotel. This hotel is certainly a jewel in the crown of the Princess Hotels Group.

The Bahia Princess is a great place to work on your tan - lots (and lots) of sun beds and plenty of sunshine in Costa Adeje.

The exterior of the hotel is very grand but in need of a fresh coat of paint. The restaurant is buffet style and has plenty to choose from. However the food is consistently bland. It is what you'd expect from mass catering. Not quite the intimate dining experience I generally go for on holiday.

I’d say the hotel is expensive for what it is but this, of course, is subjective. If you like to lay in the sun all day, bolt down your dinner and spend the evening watching hotel ‘entertainment’ – I’d point you in the direction of the Bahia Princess. If you have a young family, like fine dining and a bit of culture – I’d steer clear.

We spent a lovely relaxing week here 5-12 June. The inside of the hotel is classy with a beautiful atrium and tiling in the reception area. The inside and outside areas are kept immaculately. Other reviewers have commented on the outside needing a lick of paint. I don't think so..the beautiful columns are a natural colour and therefore paint would spoil the appearance.
There is payable internet access in the foyer. There is plenty of varied entertainment in the evening. The bedrooms are nicely done but you do have to pull a piece of furniture out to plug in your hair straightners or you mobile charger (not a big issue really). The most wonderful thing about this hotel is the staff and the service that they provide. There are always plenty of staff in the bar and resturants. They are gracious and all have good english. Like all hotels drinks and food can be pricey. The do some happy hours which do reduce the price but you'd get better value in the surrounding bars. Try the Mojitos in the top bar before going down to dinner-delightful. There are plenty of sun beds and the hotel provides pool towels in all the rooms. The top level pools are mostly child free and handy to go back to your room if you're in the main building. The hotel is on a couple of levels and there are a lot of steps in places. However there are plenty of lifts if you find steps difficult -you just need to take a bit of care. (There were a lot of the older generation enjoying themselves so obviously they weren't put off by steps)The walking keeps you fit after you stuffed yourself at dinner!! Breakfast and dinner are fresh, plenty and varied. To the left of the hotel are two small shopping centres and will satisfy avid bargain hunters. I bought shoes and bags which are still good value.You can haggle for a better deal and I get impression that tourism is down so don't pay full price. A ten minutes walk takes to the the upmarket Playa del Duque shopping centre-worth a look. For a cheap lunch time snack the Miamibar facing the hotel is recomended- toasties, baguettes etc.There is also a lovely English tea room nearby (go left across the road and it's down a little alleyway.) The Wigan Pier across the road to the right also seems to do a good trade.
There is some noise if you're at the front (we were in Room 223). The beds were so comfortable that it never really bothered us.The hotel is not to far from the beach were its expensive to hire beds etc and where the sand was too hot to walk on after midday! We did go one day but hankered after the cross breeze at the Hotel pool where there was no charge and so only managed 1 beach day. The only down side was even though you could hire a small price there was no ice dispensers (my only gripe!!)
I really enjoyed the hotel and would return.

The previous review from Robinwood5 was very accurate regarding the hotel and surrounding areas, I would just like to add a couple of points.
I took the advice of others from previous reviews and e mailed the hotel asking for a quiet room, which we got and was very happy with..
The only real fault with the hotel I found was with the bar prices, of course you expect to pay a premuim for drinking in a decent hotel but i personally feel that over 6 euros for a short and a mixer, 5 euro for a pint of beer and 2.3 euro for a soft drink, was just a little bit over the top, at dinner a 500 ml bottle of water is 2.3 euro, so over two quid.
Moan over, the food was excellent, top quality. most evenings a chef was carving some of the best meat I have tasted in ages, plenty of choice and constantly topped up.
The entertainment was varied and of generally a good standard.
The pools etc were good ,with the bonus of the main pool heated, so overall a great holiday.
Siam park. highly recommended

i was so looking forward to my holiday at this hotel but the room i was given was at the front of the hotel and i was kept awake all night by a very noisy generator the thought of two weeks in this room made me feel sick . so we went to the reception and they were very good and said we could change to the only other rooms they had .thinking this must be better we accepted them .but when we moved our things and opened the curtains and saw we had no sun at all just large plants and no view.the rooms were very shabby and smelt damp.To make things worse when we explained to the rep why we missed the meeting she knew what rooms we were in and what rooms they moved us to, this must happen a lot? .no way are these rooms four or five star .
on a more positive note the staff in the bars and restaurant were great (the rooms we were in are 23 and 24 we were moved to 1013 and 1014 )

This is our third visit to the Bahia Princess so for us its like putting on a comfy pair of slippers after a hard day at work! Will it suit you?, well that depends on what you are expecting of both Tenerife and a four star Spanish hotel.

First of all, practical stuff: when you check in there only ever seems to be one or two staff to carry out the paperwork which means the process is inevitably slow and a bit frustrating. Therefore a little tip is when you arrive for one of you to jump off the coach and go straight to reception and check in while the other (me!) struggles with the cases.

Be aware that all rooms have a minibar size fridge and a safe but you have to pay for both. The safe is 2.25 Euros per day and the fridge 4 Euros per day, so a fortnight is going to hit you for 80 Euros before you start. Oddly, the reception staff never offer these facilities without prompting (more paperwork perhaps?) so make sure you ask.

The rooms are standard fare with a nice bathroom with shower over the bath and a hairdryer and socket. The beds always seem to be two pushed together rather than a double but they may be able to provide doubles if it's a big issue. There is a big wardrobe area behind sliding mirror doors plus plenty of other drawers to put stuff in. There is a balcony area to sit on which will either give you a mountain or pool view depending which side of the corridor your room is on.

Regarding food the restaurant is at the bottom of the complex near the main pool which is accessed via either 52 steps or a lift. We were on a half board basis and all meals are a buffet style. Breakfast you just grab a table of your choice and carry on. With the evening meal you have to present your room number card to the staff and they show you to a table and take your drinks order. Please note gents have to wear trousers in the evening - no shorts allowed even smart tailored ones.

The food choice is excellent and it is hard to believe that you wouldn't be able to enjoy a different three course dinner every night. It can get busy at peak times but just be patient and wait for the queue to die down a bit. As a guide you'll pay 2.50 Euro for a bottle of water and around 12 Euro for a bottle of house wine. The staff in the restaurant are the best in the hotel and all work incredibly hard to make sure everyone is fed, watered and happy at mealtimes.

There are three pools, two up by the main hotel building and one larger one down those steps again by the resteraunt. This larger pool seemed to be favoured by families and children, so the other two are a bit quieter and calmer - you take your choice. Plenty of sunbeds for everyone, and towels are provided for you to use. People did "reserve" sunbeds by putting their towels on and then disappearing for hours but when we were there 1st week of June it wasn't a problem as there were plenty to go round.

So the hotel's great, what about the area? In simple terms like most of South West Tenerife you have a mixture of tastes so there should be something for everyone.

As a rule of thumb you leave the hotel and turn left down the hill towards the sea, a distance of about 250 meters. When you reach the promenade this is your choice - turn left towards Las Americas and Los Cristianos and you will have the "british bars" and Karaoke, amusement arcades etc. Drinks in this area were very reasonably priced with most bars advertising a pint of lager for about 1 Euro. The beach was nice and clean and had plenty for kids to do. One recommendation in this area if you like rock music there is a fantastic band called Soundchaser who are in the In and Out Bar which is situated behind MacDonalds next to the beach. They appear every night from 9.30 and are genuinely talented musicians, so if you like AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, ZZ Top etc you MUST go and see them. The lead singer / guitarist is an undiscovered superstar no question whatsoever.

If at the bottom of the hill you turn right instead and take a 20 minute stroll along the prom you will find yourself in the more upmarket El Duque area. Follow the prom around the Iberostar Anthelia Grand Hotel then past the mysterious 'Casa El Duque'. a huge house on a headland overlooking the sea, down the slope and you will find yourself next to El Duque beach on the left. In this area are some fantastic bars and restaurants, all very cool and swanky but pricy too - 3.90 Euro for a bottle of Budwieser, 6.50 Euro for a cocktail. If you keep following the sea you will come to La Coleta a lovely unspoiled village with some great fish restaurants.

We hired a car and saw the "real" Tenerife - winding roads with hairpin bends to rival anything in the Alps, beautiful pine forests, ravines that run all the way to the sea and of course Mount Teide with its moonscape. If you don't fancy hiring a car, get in a coach and experience these areas of the island - it will change your view of Tenerife for ever. The village of Masca in the North West about 1 hour from the hotel is a must.

This was our 8th holiday at this hotel. The staff are extremely polite and friendly and will do anything for you. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Food is very good although predictably the same but lots of choice. Breakfasts in particular are very good.

Location for older visitors may be a bit of problem particularly when it is really hot as there is quite a hill to climb from the seafront. Nevertheless, we wouldn't hesitate to go back for the 9th time. Downside at the moment is the price - very expensive as are all Thomson Platinum hotels.
