Just returned from a week at the Sol Principe. What a lovely hotel. Really can not pick any faults with it. The hotel is huge and was very busy whilst we were there, as you would expect in August...
We had a great time, the hotel was great; the entertainment was great and our overall service was great! The selection of food was excellent and the bar service was quick! I definitaly reccommend it to you and it deserves a 5* x 100
Came back a week ago and I am still longing to return! We had the most amazing time here, the hotel, the location, entertainment, staff, pools etc..everything was perfect! We absolutely loved it and...
- bring ear plugs due to extreme noise . - be prepared to que for food . - very bad lay out eg bread rolls over one side of the massive room butter at the other side . - no boiling water available at lunch time or dinner time making it very difficult for family's with baby's , for bottles etc . - make sure to wake at 7am to go to the pool and place chairs and towels @ poolside , then return @ 9am when they unlock the sun beds and try fight for a sun bed . -to be honest I would rather go Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve than enter that food court again . It's like going for an evening meal in the middle of heathrow airport . - cleaning staff very pleasant waiters also very pleasant . Shows @ night very good for kids but finish at eleven nothing for adults afterwards so the massive heard of people swiftly evacuate to bed willing to crush anyone who gets in the way .

I'd have given this hotel 5 stars for the breakfast selection alone, however the bedrooms need upgrading and the racket the air conditioning makes it impossible to leave it on whilst trying to sleep...it's a bit too far out of the main area which would not suit the elderly or those who don't like walking. I would go back though if it was ever refurbished

Just returned and was not disappointed. This is a very large hotel which is geared up to families and is full of activities from morning till night the shows in the evening are very good. The only thing that concerned us as a family with a small child were the amount of parents that totally ignored the no smoking policy around the children's pool areas. The hotel is so big there are many areas you can puff away without doing it by small children and babies. There is no real dress code for evening meal which some will find good but again for some this may be a negative Having said that the hotel is very clean and there is something for everybody, the food is of a good standard with plenty of choice. The hotel in August is very busy.
