Even from its striking entrance, the Princesa Yaiza demonstrates its 5-star rating. Its open, subtly decorated spaces, which feature a beautiful wood finish, are both comfortable and accessible. The luxury hotel label guarantees a devoted, attentive, helpful, and very professional staff, for which the word “no” simply does not exist.
The suites, the most commonly requested rooms, are sure to surprise with their wonderful use of space. Majestic and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms with elegant and modern furnishings transmit tranquility and relaxation. In short, this hotel offers the perfect accommodations to recharge your batteries while relaxing in luxury. The suite is appointed with a comfortable living room and balcony. The only thing that seems to be lacking is a permanent WiFi connection in place of the sometimes cumbersome internet connection device.
Princesa Yaiza is a perfect fit for family vacationers. The 10,000 square meters of space dedicated to em>Kikoland, an area for children’s activities, are divided into three large spaces according to age (0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 years), all led by reliable professionals specializing in child recreation and learning. Starting early in the morning, the little ones can combine swimming in the pool or sandcastle building on the nearby beach with the endless recreational activities offered at Kikoland. This exceptional service frees parents to enjoy activities like playing tennis, squash, paddle ball, or taking a walk down the 5-mile Playa Blanca seaside avenue.
Sun and Sand
The strategic location of Princesa Yaiza allows guests to enjoy the mild climate in a large common area with a freshwater and saltwater swimming pool as well as a mini Jacuzzi. The pools are large enough to allow for serious swimming, and there are hammocks placed in and around the pool areas. The semi-hidden hammocks along the waters edge are especially relaxing, a perfect spot to spend a relaxing moment reading the newspaper or enjoying a book while soaking your feet in the water. As part of this hotel’s exceptional customer service, guests have access to whatever they may like from the ice cream shop, which also specializes in milkshakes and cocktails, and from El Chiringuito, the restaurant near the swimming area.
Princesa Yaiza is located in Playa Blanca, a new tourist center that lacks a full array of alternative leisure activities. For this reason, the hotel includes within its facilities a wide range of areas for recreation, among which we will point out the Princesa Yaiza plaza. It is a carefully maintained and colorful square with two good restaurants, Don Giovanni and + Tapas, a fabulous ice cream shop, an attractive boulevard with the latest fashions and accessories, and an amazing jazz club called Cuatro Lunas. This plaza is a perfect spot to experience the magic of the tranquil Playa Blanca nights, as the sound of the waves crashing against the nearby beach serve as a pleasant background to a good conversation. Inside the hotel off the main plaza there are a variety of shows and performances in the Salon Mararía, as well as a relaxing piano bar. Aside from the hotel’s buffet (which has a surprising variety of choices), the dining options are outstanding and include the popular Japanese restaurant Kampai with its comfortable traditional Teppanyaky tables, and the majestic Islas de Lobos with its signature Mediterranean cuisine that offers mainly fresh fish and shellfish. As far as sporting activities, Princesa Yaiza has a gym and tennis, paddle ball and squash courts. Also, the thalassotherapy center has developed a complete line of health and beauty products over the years. Its latest and most enticing addition, a luxurious spa offering couples massages with hydrotherapy and a Jacuzzi.
