Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife Review

The Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife is a five-star, family-friendly hotel in Tenerife, Spain. And having visited the resort with my 6 and 9 in tow, I thought I’d give you the rundown of everything you’d need to know about the resort, its facilities, and all of its onsite entertainment. 

As a family, we absolutely love visiting Tenerife as not only is it just over a four-hour flight from the UK, but it also has year-round warm weather and a plethora of activities to entertain the entire family.

From beautiful beaches and animal-watching experiences to the world-famous Siam Park and the island’s zoo, Jungle Park.

Tenerife truly is a haven for families with little ones. An easy flight from the U.K and good chances of warmer weather.

Although you can fill your days in Tenerife with an endless list of activities, Tenerife’s all-inclusive resorts, like the Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife also offer the luxury of having everything you could possibly need all in one place—you don’t even need to leave the resort grounds to be thoroughly entertained from morning until nightfall! 

So, if you’re in the midst of holiday planning, then here is my in-depth review of the Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife, as, in my opinion, it’s one of the best family-friendly resorts on the entire island

Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife First Impressions and Check-In Experience

From the moment you lay eyes upon the Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife, you’ll be blown away by the resort’s sheer size and beauty. 

With over 500 rooms spread out across the hotel’s grounds, seven pools, five restaurants, and even a miniature waterpark that is aimed at children, the Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife is an impressive beachside accommodation that staff maintain to an extremely high level. 

For guests who aren’t tech-savvy and prefer to check in the old-fashioned way, then the Bahia’s reception staff are always on hand to get you set up for your stay. However, the resort also offers a unique check-in experience that will ultimately streamline your arrival.

With the hotel’s handy-dandy app, you can not only check in to bypass any queues at reception, but you can also book shows, restaurant reservations, and any extra activities that take your fancy during your stay. 

Once your room is ready, staff will give each member of the family (kids included) a wristband. And this wristband will act as your all-inclusive pass and your room key all in one! Say goodbye to rummaging around your bag for an impossible-to-find key card.

Family-Friendly Atmosphere and Service

As the Bahia is a family-friendly resort, they’ve really thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. 

With pools, playgrounds, and kid-friendly entertainment on offer, as well as baby rooms in each accommodation block that provide microwaves, bottle heaters, buggy storage, and sinks, the Bahia is an excellent choice for families who really appreciate the little additional touches.

Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife Room Types and Accommodation

The Bahia has a few different room options for families to choose from. And in addition to the room types, there are also different views.

One of the affordable rooms at the hotel is suitable for a single parent and a child. And that is a superior room which features a large double bed and a balcony. 

For slightly larger families who prefer more spacious rooms, then the next accommodation type is a junior suite. Junior suites are over twice the size of superiors.

In addition to a large double bed and balcony, they also boast a sofa bed, which is perfect for the little ones of the family. 

If you’re like us and enjoy having a separate seating area from the bedroom, then the Bahia’s family suites will be right up your alley. Family rooms again have a large double bed and a sofa bed.

Interconnecting doors separate the sofa bed and the main bedroom, allowing you to have some privacy while the kids are asleep. 

All in all, if you are travelling with kids, then I highly suggest opting for a family suite with a sea view. The sea view suites will ultimately give you additional space.

From our experience, they are the most peaceful as they’re the only ones that don’t face directly into the hotel complex. 

All rooms at the Bahia come with air conditioning, a minibar and a flat-screen TV.

If you have one, be sure to pack a Chrome Cast or an Amazon Fire Stick. That way, you can watch movies once the kids are in bed!

Dining Quality and Variety

With seven restaurants to choose from, you really will be spoilt for choice each and every meal time. One of the best restaurants on-site for families with kids, however, is, of course, the buffet.

We found that there was a good variety of food to suit all palette preferences. 

In addition to the buffet, the Bahia also has a la carte restaurants including ones that specialise in Japanese and Italian cuisine. These restaurants are slightly fancier and you will need to make a reservation. But you can do so directly with the hotel or via the Bahia app.

Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife Beaches, Pools, and Outdoor Entertainment

Now, onto the fun part—the Bahia’s pools, nearby beaches, and outdoor entertainment! 

If your kids are anything like mine, then the majority of your holiday will be spent relaxing by one of the Bahia’s seven swimming pools. One of these swimming pools is adult-only.

However, the remaining six, along with the onsite water park, are all child-friendly! 

Backing the resort’s main pool—and my girls’ favourite—is a castle that looks like it belongs at Disney World. And if you have the budget, then you can even book a night or two in the castle to make your kid’s princess dreams come true! 

For those times when you get over swimming and relaxing with a cocktail in hand (is that even possible?), you can then explore one of Tenerife’s incredible beaches. Tenerife’s beaches are partly why we love visiting the island, as many of them feature black sand thanks to Tenerife’s volcanic activity.

With additional outdoor entertainment, including 30-minute poolside shows every Wednesday night and inflatables that come out once a week at the top pools, your kids are bound to be entertained for the duration of your trip!

One downside of the Bahia is the fact the pool tiles get extremely slippery. So I highly suggest packing non-slip pool shoes to prevent any accidents!

Activities for Kids and Young Adults

To top it all off, the Bahia also boasts a gym, a spa, and nightly entertainment, which, in my opinion, are way above average! During your seven-night stay, you’ll get access to two themed shows.

You will need to book reservations for the shows at the hotel or via the Bahia app. 

For kids, the Bahia also puts on a kids club and even a teens club. Plus, they have an arcade and a playground, which are always a hit no matter where you go.
