The Sol Principe Hotel lists itself as a 4 star hotel but I would rate
it just 3 star. It is a large hotel, with multiple buildings and many
pools. We went in low season (January) and there were mainly old people
there playing cards in the lobby. The corridor by the rooms as well as
the rooms themselves are all paved in tiles - no carpeting anywhere so
noise vibrates quite a bit from the hall into the room. The walls are
paper thin and if your next door neighbor has a hearing problem and
raises the volume on their TV you too will enjoy dubbed Spanish TV shows
in your room at night.

Since it was low season, parking was free and plentiful in their parking
lot. Internet access was only available in the lobby but was free for 24
hours of usage which is more than fine for a 4 day holiday. On the other
hand - they charged 12Euro for use of the room safe.

The bathroom was spacious with the normal compliment of towels and
soaps. Shampoo is from a dispenser.

Breakfast was good. Location is good. If they ever fixed the noise
issue between rooms (not an easy fix) they would regain their 4th
star in my opinion.

We stayed in sol principe for 2 weeks in early june 2009 and we can not fault it . Our coach ride to the hotel from the airport was very short only about 15 or 20 mins . On arriving our check in was fast enough considering the amount of people checking in at the same time. After checking in we were shown to our spotlessly clean room one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in . The room was small enough with a kitchen in a cupbaord but still with everything you could need including a hob . The pool area was lovely always kept spotless but when wet the flooring became very sliperey and many children fell but it was always tended to afterwards . the lifeguards at the pool were always watching the pool and never droped their gaurd . The staff were amazing with the kids club and every few days the would have a game which in the end had the kids push the staff playing the bad guys in the pool . There was a play area for kid which was closed alot though . The entertainment at night was put on by the staff but still very good they would practise most of the day . there was both adult and kids games during the day with included water polo , darts , bolwing ect. for adlts which staff made sure was enjoyable . Food and drink in the pool side bar was quite reasonable but it was just as easy to go to the supermaket attached to the hotel and only pay half the price for a drink . We were self catering but went for dinner one night in the hotel which was quite expensive for what we got but we were told from friends we had made there that it was normally better . It was on a on a great location just across the road from the beach and just a 5 minute walk from the irish pub shenanagans with showed the six one news every night at seven oclock . The hotel was also not long from the lifts which goes up though the moutains to the main town you could walk the steps to see the lovely shops but your better off to do that on the way down . I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone no matter what their age

stayed in this hotel in sep 2009 with my wife and 2 yr old daughter on a HB basis. this review is a little, but tripadvisor is such an invaluable resource for me that i feel its worth contributing where i can.

this is an excellent place to stay if you have small children/ families - as was evident by the many families there with small children. they have a daily creche for children, if you want a little time to yourself. in the evening the hotel had a regular childrens stage show, which was always popular.

the pool was also very big and excellent and always full. sunbeds around the pool were sometimes an issue, as they were normally occupied pretty early in the morning. however the lifeguards would remove towels from any beds that were not occupied for about an hour, which was greatly appreciated, and you could eventually find somewhere to sit.

the beach is right across the street from the hotel and easy to reach, if you want a change from the hotel's pool. therer was always somewhere to sit, and it was very clean.

our room was cleaned daily and of a very high standard. we had a sea view room, which was very nice.

the hotel's restaurant was also excellent - eat as much as you like, and there was a lot of variety to choose from daily. being HB, we had to pay for our drinks, and this could add up to a few quid if you weren't careful.

some practical points to be aware of: 1) we had hired a car for the 8 days we were there, and parking is a big issue. although parking in and around the hotel is free, it is almost impossible to find anywhere to park during the middle of the day and onwards. we went on a number of excursions during the day, so it wasn't much of an issue, but on occasions where we had to come back to the hotel it meant wasting quite a lot of time before we found anywhere to park. 2) the hotel shuts the doors that face the beach at midnight every day - these doors were also the ones that provided easiest acces to the shopping area near the hotel. being a very large complex, this meant that if you were out late you ahd about a 10min walk around the complex to reach its other entrance- very annoying when you came back feeling tired and wanting access to your room. 3) the hotel had a very grand lobby, where you could sit and which provided free wi fi access - this proved very helpful when we were planning on what to do.

overall,i would definitely recommend this hotel for families and a base to explore the surroundings.

we are a couple from Tunisia. We were there for our honey moon for 8 days.
people woking there are very helpful, hotel very clean, There are always places in the restaurant despite the huge number of guests. you can always find places outside in from of the sea and the second pool.
What I appreciated a lot: after the first night in the hotel we wanted to get a room wich gives to the big pool because the view is fantastic by night. The woman working in the guest service accepted with a beautiful smile inspite the fact that our room was in from of the sea.
After changing the room, we've lost a ring in the first room. They brang to us and we found it in our new room.
I recommend this hotel for families with children. I'll recommended less for young people.
for any help This is my email cherif@gawab.com!

i stayed at this hotel twice with my girlfriend and our daughter who was 1 at the time, i went in march (weather just ok) and in september weather pretty good. i thought it was a pretty good hotel swimming pool was unreal, the hotel itself was very clean and all up to date, the entertainment at night was very good kept the small 1 happy while myself and my other half enjoy a few drinks.
the staff were pretty friendly, english wasnt the best tho/

the few bad things are that the rooms were a bit small, like we had a double room with a cot cramped in and then the buggie on top of that like, not much room to move about. bout room really clean, it wouldnt be a hotel for young people lokking to party as the clubs and pubs are miles aways bout ten euro in a taxi, but theres is a few nice pubs around the hotel.

all in all cant go wrong good entertainment bril pool,veryclean, on the beach and just 20e away from airport in taxi
