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.

We stayed here for one week, bed and breakfast only! Our room was located on the fifteenth floor with a sea view which was perfect. The room itself was clean and tidy, the only bits that let it down was a hard mattress and very poor air con. Breakfast was nothing to shout about, a standard buffet type which didn't vary from day to day. However there are plenty of places nearby to get a decent bit of grub for only a few euro's. The bars are cashless so the only way of getting a drink is being all inclusive or opening up a pre-paid tab which starts at 50 euro's. The seafront/beach was only a short walk down over the hill which was ideal and you can also walk along to Las Americas or get a short taxi drive for around 5 euro's.More

Just returned from this cockroach infested dive, after being placed in a cell-like room without any form of air conditioning or even a ceiling fan. When we complained to the reception, we were told that we could not be relocated to another room due to the hotel being fully booked by the obnoxious 'Flower' at reception, who must have had the loudest voice on the entire island. However, we persevered, sweltering in our sauna-like room until Monday, when the abseiling duo appeared from the roof, drilling and plugging the concrete panels on the side of the building which were in a severe state of disrepair. We were showered in dust and concrete chippings which fell like bullets onto our balcony. When we complained to the manager about the clear health and safety issues with this procedures, she just shrugged her shoulders, stating that "It has to be done". We endured this circus act Monday-Friday for two weeks - the balcony was always coated in white dust due to the drilling and the noise was absolutely horrendous... I only hope the dust did not contain asbestos! It seems as though if you do not speak the language, you are treated as a second class citizen. Save your hard-earned cash and choose somewhere else.More
Returned 08/09/14 Stayed on 15th Floor B&B (we were here in Feb) The goods points are good size, air con ,room very clean ,great view -Bad points bed and mattress ,pillows old and worn not what you would expect from a Superior room ,I had back ache for 4 days until bed broke I then got a reasonable replacement mattress as well .TV Only news and CBS Action -NO KETTLE Breakfast not really for UK Residents but you can get full breakfast for 2.50 euro just down the hill No problem with Sunbeds got down around 10am-However some people were reserving with towels all day and returning till gone 3pm !!!! why do hotels allow this ? We found all staff very helpful smiley and welcoming-entertainment around the pool every day was well organised and fun , We did all inclusive for last day to get drinks and snacks as all bars are cashless . Local Town worth visit plenty of good cheap bars and quality shops and restaurants Use local buses very cheap and reliable. We found most other guests chatty and friendly every body appeared to be enjoying themselves I didn't see anyone complaining Yes it is a 70's built Hotel and 3 Star but on balance I would recommend and would returnMore

The crown has slipped
Stayed at this hotel twice before. The location is fabulous. The room we had was large but the air conditioning was broken. Needed to hire it at 90 euro for 9 days. We were on 15th floor room 1512 next to lifts but wasn't an issue. The staff are amazing especially Silvia Zamora who organised a surprise birthday cake from an amazing bakery. Pablo in the kitchen was great organising meat free scrambled eggs and looked after us with the most amazing pain au chocolate. The entertainment group work hard on the shows and were all brilliant. Poor Kevin on his last night ended up in the pool with Jordy. The grease show was the best. Get there early to get a seat as there was never enough. The food in the hotel is a big let down. We upgraded on arrival to AI at â¬10 not quite knowing. The food used to be amazing and had great waiter service. The food at best is canteen style. Cheap style and not quality. Fresh soup replaced by packet rubbish. Even the paella was poor. The salad bar a poor event. It used to be furnished with beautiful salads, now replaced by what can only be described as tin veg. The eggs were often spoiled and sour due to poor rotation. The mojo sauce was the worst I've ever had. Canarian night was the worst. No potato canarian style. Was bad bad bad. The chips were either under cooked or covered on grease. The lasagne was a train wreck the meat balls hard as canon balls. This isn't the chefs fault but the company getting cheap food for AI. Would prefer to pay more for better quality. The AI is not as it sounds. AI means all inclusive usually. Here it's all inclusive rubbish off the tap cheap stuff. All inclusive Gold is the "new" AI. You can't have bottles of coke or fanta you have tap. All drinks finish at 11pm. If you are a minute late tough !!! The queue for drinks is huge as there isn't enough staff. You end up mass ordering drinks as too long to wait. The coffee is the cheapest rubbish I have ever had and I love my morning coffee but ended up not drinking it. The orange juice is not real juice but watered down concentrate!! The milkshake is horrid as they make from cheap cocoa. All in all the food and drink isn't worth it. Go out to drink and eat!!! The pool is great but get there for 8 am or you ain't getting bed !! Sol please get this princess back to her glory days. You have a beautiful hotel and happy hard working staff. Help them !!! Please open up the bar downstairs. Get more staff who are brilliant. Charge more for food as long as you get better quality. Won't be back till this is fixed.More
Hotel is trying so hard
We read reviews about this hotel before we set off and were expecting pontins in southport...luckily it was no where near as bad as some people complain about. Every holiday people can spend time pointing faults..however we all found the hotel clean. We checked in on arrival and were directed to the food by the reception team. Good selection for the first time of looking around and the help yourself to wine, beer, water and soft drinks was amazing. Felt like my own barmaid. Our room was a lounge and bedroom and the sofa bed was made into a bed...no air conditioning in the rooms but we slept with patio doors open and a breeze at night kept us fine. We also took our own fan to use. The breakfasts always had something...even if you don't like smoky bacon. We also could wrap up baguettes with ham and cheese and doughnuts and cakes to take out to day trips. No one seemed to mind. I laughed at all the people running to put towels on sun beds at 8 in the morning..so I just joined in. The pool bar was help service to wine, soft drinks, sangria and beer..along with ice. I have a feeling the bar staff wanted me to stop asking for free cocktails and cava though. But it's my holiday. We paid a lot of money for this. It wasn't nice the staff behind the bar giving you the vibes that they don't want to serve you because your always there. The entertainment team were the highlight of our holiday. Always happy and jolly..smiling and greeting every guest. I do think that the entertainment team make guests go back. We liked our holiday however we do feel that we looked at the positives. The beds are just not nice to sleep on. The food could be improved...some food like burgers were not cooked properly. We had a few ants but we had spray to kill them. Also we saw a few accidents to guests...broken legs and split heads etc,..but I suppose that's health and safety abroad..not up to English standards. We unfortunately won't be going back to the hotel as i didn't fall for the place...something is missing. Hats off though they are trying hard to make this a great hotel. Don't worry if you have booked its totally clean and fine. We found also eating out a few nights were needed as the food is repetitive and you do get that sick feeling in your stomach walking around the same things every nigh. Chicken or pork anyone???
