Classy Resort Hotel for Mature Couples & Families

Posted 17-Apr-2015
Pros: The staff, the decor, the up-market but relaxed atmosphere and the first class buffet breakfasts. A good choice of restaurants and it's really pretty.
Cons: The corridors and public spaces are chilly when the weather is cooler. Not sure there is much to be done about this except to take a wrap or jumper.
Location: Great walks along the promenade to the town and to the Marina Rubicon. Many decent restaurants and pleasant beaches nearby. Car hire cheap and easy
I took a lot of time researching the resorts and hotels in Lanzarote and concluded that Playa Blanca and the Princesa Yaiza were the ones for us. I was delighted with the hotel and the little town and my husband and I spent hours walking along the promenade in the sunshine and eating in the numerous little restaurants both in the town and in the Marina Rubicon. The Princesa Yaiza surpassed my expectations and is a beautiful and excellently managed hotel. We only did B&B but we did eat in the Japanese restaurant one evening, and it was a great experience. We also enjoyed lunch by the pool on a couple of occasions and drinks in the lobby bar, which was elegantly done. The weather was rather windy and a little cold for the time of year, and as the hotel is fairly open to the elements it is a bit draughty/chilly in the corridors, but that would be my only negative comment. The nightly entertainment was also of a high standard, given it's free. We went in term time, so there were only very young children in the hotel during our visit, but they seemed to be well catered for. An truly outstanding buffet breakfast is available each morning. I highly recommend this large, but classy, family resort hotel and would go again.

Tired and tatty.

Posted 14-Apr-2015
Pros: The proportions and grandeur of the original building, shame it has been allowed to slip..... probably in the under false guise of greater profits.
Cons: Needs a face lift/ over haul
Location: Small beach attached to hotel in a 1980's skegness type resort.
Probably very good for kids who tend not to look too deeply. But getting shabby and neglected

Excellent family holidays fully due to the hotel

Posted 14-Apr-2015
There wasnt much going on in Lanzarotte, so we knew we needed a good hotel. Princesa Yaiza turned out to be a lucky choice, it was more expensive than I would normally go for but there were not many choices left just over a month before Easter holidays. As you would expect most families were with kids, but the zones were well defined, so around a sea water pool was mostly a kid free zone, some of the evening entertaining was also kid free. We were with a 4 year old son and he had amazing time in akids pool, soft play and kikoland playgrounds next door, beach with white sand was not crowded and well maintained. Few restaurants arnd hotel along the promenade but the ones in the hotel were the best. Tapas plus was superb, we dined almost every day there, great dishes for 3-5 euros (small portions of fish soup, canarian potatoes, cray fishe etc) as well as risotto and steak for 14. Hotel stuff is very friendly and not invasive. Were given a birthday cake to our room from when our son turned 4, nice touch.

The hotel exceeded our expectations!

We were very impressed with our stay at the Princesa hotel. The facilities are excellent and the we found all the staff to be very helpful. My young 3 year old daughter loved it and we'd have no hesitation in recommending this resort to families.

Beautiful hotel in a great location

Posted 28-Mar-2015
Pros: Beautiful suites. Beautiful grounds. Excellent breakfasts. Great spin classes.
Cons: Small seated outside breakfast taken over by smokers. Stop children running around at breakfast and showtime. Zumba advertised but not on
Location: Great location, beautiful beach and good restaurants locally. Hire a car as Lanzarote is worth seeing as a whole.
The setting is ideal and facilities are excellent. Unfortunately the hotel seemed quite empty and lacked atmosphere. Children seemed to be allowed to run everywhere and even play on the stage during show performances and around the restaurants at breakfast. This must have been very off putting during the Celtic Nights show. I think this is unacceptable and needs managing as it is enough to put me off a future stay. The suite was excellent but so cold with a lack of sun on the windows and no supplementary heating that it was uncomfortable and again would put me off staying at this time of year.

Best 5 Star Hotel we have ever stayed at.

Posted 10-Mar-2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: No towelettes to wipe the basins' areas. Struggling to find anything else needed !!
Location: It's very near the centre of Playa Blanca (the only upmarket resort on the south of the island); plenty of wonderful restaurants nearby.
Stayed there 5 times. Always a pleasure. Staff, Rooms, Facilities - the Best.
