Thanks to its lively pool and long list of activities, the Sol Princesa Dacil is a big hit with families. Plus, in the school holidays, a Flintstones-themed playground opens its doors. The location goes down well, too - the beach and town centre are nearby.
The Sol Princesa Dacil is in a really convenient location. The hotel is less than a five-minute walk from Los Cristianos Beach and less than ten minutes from the heart of town and all its shops, bars and restaurants. What’s more, the airport is only 17 miles away, so you won’t have a long transfer.
There’s a packed list of activities available at the hotel, too. In the busiest summer months, you can get in a giant inflatable ball and try water zorbing on top of the swimming pool - that's if you're not sunbathing around it. Alternatively, head to the tennis courts or play a game of mini-golf. If you’ve got children with you, they can take part in Stone Age-themed activities in the Flintstones play area during school holidays.
On the food front, the restaurant serves generous buffets at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The spreads include everything from steaks and fish to salads and pastas. There’s also a snack bar if you get hungry between meals.
Having read many bad reviews I realize maybe will should all make our own opinion. First the beds are terrible I could not sleep on them that was a shame. The food is ok you will not be hungry but do not expect restaurant quality, could be better but as i say its ok. Entertainment make up for everything else with Alberto, Christina and Keiv. Family had a amazing time days went too quickly. I would come here again but I would bring a double airbed to sleep on which is a shame but the hotel price is so reasonable. You will have a good time here, but bring a airbed. Shame no fans or air-conditioning except in double rooms which only sleep two.More

thought i'd written a review on this hotel a few days ago praising it but can't find it so after reading a few reviews with people complaining about it had to write to say we had a lovely time there we were on the second floor and yes we overlooked the sun terrace but also had a good view of the sea i think the people who go out early to place their towels on the sunbeds are sad people but it never bothered us as we prefer the beach, the entertainment was very good as was all staff,food was very good with a great choice, i disagree with it being dated i thought it quite modern and as for being noisy thats just not true the entertainment finished at eleven which isn't late, i agree about no cash at the bar as we like to pay as you go not at the end of the holiday also the rooms could do with air conditioning as they get very hot and newer t.v. but apart from those couple of things i think the hotel is wonderful.More

Couldn't fault this hotel at all. Stayed there last week (October 2014). Checked in straight away with no problems and very friendly and helpful staff. Upgraded to all inclusive for 17 euros per day. Well worth it as the food was delicious and plenty of choice. Beds a bit hard but not too bad at all. Room was again faultless. Very clean and spacious. Had a fantastic time there and will deffinately be booking again for next year. Thank you Sol Princesa Dacil for a holiday to remember. ðMore

Can't believe the bad reviews
10 night stay with wife and two kids (2) & (10) we had a fantastic time.
Hotel was old yes but very clean. Three points that I agree with the moaners smelly pools side toilets, no aircon and hard beds!
This is a family hotel if you don't want cheesy entertainment kids splashing in the pool then don't go!!
Food was good but got a bit repetitive maybe theme night would help an Italian night a Spanish night etc...
People saying you got look down at if you were half board lol!!!!
You have the option to up grade to all inclusive on arrival for 10 euros per adult and 5 euros child.
Which if you consider lunch 5 euros a beer 2.5 euros that's just 2 beers and lunch and you have made your money!!
I was on the 12th floor no aircon but hired fans also portable aircon available on request.
All the staff were fantastic very friendly and helpful with a smile.
Alex in reception was a star the entertainment staff were great and my little girl loved Christina Alberto was great and very funny "thanks so much"
Pool was a bit on the small side for the size of hotel but never too full you couldn't swim.
Yes sun beds were reserved with towels but not at 7AM the maintenance guy didn't open the doors to the pool side until after 8AM so very fair as breakfast starts at 7AM.
You can't access the sun terrace until then either so some of the reviewers need to learn to tell the time.
Yes there are areas of the bar that are for all inclusive THIS IS SO YOU CAN HELP YOUR SELF!!
This obviously helps reduce waiting time at the bar for people not all inclusive!!
The sports bar is not only for all inclusive don't know where that bit of duff information came from.
Lifts slow, really!! There are 15 floors and 4 lifts I never waited more than 1 minute for a lift!!
Cats yes there were a couple of cats but never pestered you and never inside the hotel, trampoline wasn't broken!! It was used for kids club with bungees and when not being used was stowed away safely.
On conclusion we had a fantastic time really enjoyed our stay, great staff, great hotel very clean and fun for families, well done Princesa Dacil, thanks for a great holiday.More
i titled this review shame because that is what it is about this hotel,
the shame being that if only for air -con this good hotel would be a great hotel.
we stayed here for a week recently and cannot fault the food, staff, cleandliness ,entertainment,rooms.
but all of the above was spoilt by the lack of air-con .we were on the ground floor so couldnt leave the door open for security reasons and although we had a ceiling fan this just circulated the hot air inside the room. the dining room also only had fans and it was impossible to sit and enjoy any indoor activities , why not put air -con in and then charge customers seperatly if they want to have it on.More
