The pianist is excellent (takes 1 to know 1) but the 'so-called' entertainment in the upstairs family room is abysmal. At first when we began coming here it was passable, but you think that Cameron & Osborne were running this place cut cut cut-- every year. Still so long as they leave the excellent food alone no one will bother too much I suspect. I mean where else do you get your bacon done to light , moderate, or crispy? Also I don't know another overseas hotel that serves fried bread at breakfast. Yummy!
I’m ready for going back now but I got 3 months to wait yet. We had one half day rain in 9 x 10 day 'sorties' to princess, so 90 days total and half a day spoilt not a bad record. Just the job for the luxurious heated outdoor pool (temperature akin to a bathtub) in there then venture over to the 'other side' bracing is an understatement but coming back is oh so nice & warm.
Find a better place at this price I challenge you!
We had a lovely room with a sea view food to suit everyone and we met some nice people, It was my daughters twenty first birthday and hotel and staff did everything to make it a great day for her.
Overall excellent hotel.
The location was very dull, you could not go out for a walk as there was nowhere to go and no bars etc. The staff were a little on the slow side you had to go to the bar yourself- no waiter service.
The entertainment was poor, the piano bar was the same thing every night. He could play the piano and he could not sing he mumbled the words he did not know. The salon bar you got 1 hour turn then the prizes of the day, then another 1 hour turn. They were very poor.
ANSWER.- Go to the Piano bar, where the pianist,who is a VERY FINE MUSICIAN incidentally, (takes one to know and appreciate one) will play your request,and people dance to their hearts content, or like me just sit and enjoy the music and watch the many expert dancers.
HOWEVER, the food just seems to get better here. I mean bacon for breakfast cooked three different degrees (soft medium or crispy) eggs done about 6 different ways (to the individual taste too) Lunch and Dinner there is always a carvery at each and AT LEAST SIX or SEVEN hot dishes to choose from, before one gets to the cold cuts, salads (and of course desserts) nobody can say they could not find anything to their taste.
THE STAFF. All very friendly as usual, nothing is too much trouble. THE ROOMS, clean with bedding etc. changed every day
POOL AREA. Yes, their IS the stipulation that if you wish to leave towels, you MUST stay with them before 10.00 a.m. or they will be removed by the attendant. Seems rather harsh, but it stops people froom reserving "banks" of beds. Ohe than that, it is great and safe for all Three pools kiddies, then heated , then the cold one for the brave (her I have to say how stimulating it is to go in the warm pool, then over the partition to the cold pool, grim at first, but coming back to the heated pool is sheer Heaven, like jumping into a giant hot-tub.
IF I seem to have gone "over the top" a little, that is because this Hotel deserves all it gets, with a beautiful location, every room looks out to sea, and being a true Yorkshireman born and bred I like to get value for money. Here I do, unlike many of the other Hotels I have visited on this particualr Island (and other islands in the Canaries too).
Already booked for next year.

The hotel was very clean and there was allways maids around if there was any problems. We had a problem with our TV and on reporting it we had it fixed in about ten minutes.
The hotel is located in a quiet bay with not many things around, however who needs it when your all inclusive. This hotel is ideal for any party really, there is quite lively areas around the pool to sun bathe or you can move to a secluded area where you could just laye in peace.
The Hotel staff were excellent from arrival to leaving. On arrival at 1am we had food and drink waiting for us which was a nice touch. On getting to the hotel we took part in nearly every activity put on by the animation team, there is a wide range of things to do and this could keep you happy all day. All the team were fantastic and made your stay a time to remember.
The hotel evening entertainement was ok but nothing to write home about, we had seven nights to review this and in my opinion only two shows were worth watching(the 4 tops and the russian girls).Apparently all the shows were supposed to be professional, lets just say they wont be getting through to the second round on Gran canaria has got tallent.
The piano bar was a nice place to sit and have a quiet drink and a dance if you like the slow stuff.
At the end of my stay i was disappointed to be leaving and will definately visit this hotel again.

he told us that they may be a present for us in our room.
there was a small meal laid out for us which was very nice.
The next day we had a bottle of red wine and a plate of fruit delivered to our room for my birthday compliments of the manager and the day after that we had a large bottle of champaign in ice for our anniversary we thought this was a very nice gesture form the hotel management.
Our room had maid service every day, the hotel is kept spotlessly clean throughout.
The dining room is laid out well and there is a great selection of food, not all to our taste but we ate well all the time.
the pool bar has lots of drinks and snacks to keep you going through the day
The entertainment is not up to much but it is there every night mostly dancing girls.
the hotel is situated in a cove and not much going on around it but there are bus and taxis to nearby resorts.
we shall go again to this hotel no doubt

The food was average, the only problem I felt was that there was not much vegetables on offer and only one area to obtain freshly cooked meat etc so you always had to queue for it. If there had been 2 stations it would have been much easier as I could imagine this being quite problematic in high season.
The location of the hotel is idyllic and as long as you are aware of the location then there should be no problems at all. Taurito has a lovely private beach which is shared with the sister hotel the Princess Suites, and the views are beautiful with the sea and such a vast range of mountains it is breathtaking.
The entertainment very much catered for the kiddies early evening and then about 22.00hrs the entertainment would start for the adults. The shows were quite good but if you sat at the back of the room it was very hard to hear properly the sound quality.
We would definatly return to this hotel for a weeks break again in the future.
