Hotel Sol Princesa Dacil  

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.

November Break 2014

Stayed here for 7 nights starting Sunday 9 November room and breakfast basis.Checked in at reception staff very nice and polite went to my room on the 13 floor was very pleased with room and the view from the balcony was brilliant looking out to the sea and harbor well worth paying a bit extra for'. The food at breakfast was very good with a large selection and variety of food the English breakfast was very good I cant comment on lunch or dinner as we always ate out but I did not here any all inclusive people complaining so I assume it was good.The rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard The big sports bar did not look very busy but we used bars in the town so cant really comment.On the whole a very nice hotel and recommend it to anyone and will return and use it myself.More

We have just spent two weeks at this hotel and my wife and I would like to thank all the staff for making the holliday one of the best we have had. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The entertainment staff were excellent they worked very hard to get as mainy people involved in the entertainment. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, we are looking to go back again next year.More

Wonderful holiday

We stayed for 2 weeks for the second year running at this hotel and really enjoyed the experience. We booked half board then upgraded on arrival to all inclusive as this is more cost effective than booking all inclusive from the outset. The quality and quantity of food are excellent, the public areas and rooms are clean and the staff are friendly & helpful More

Ladies celebrating

I stayed at this hotel about ten years ago and enjoyed my stay, so when Thomsons suggested a stay at this hotel I had no hesitation in accepting. Myself and my friend wanted a week in Tenerife to celebrate our birthdays. Since my stay at the hotel Dacil ten years ago, one of my friends moved to Tenerife and I usually stay in a hotel near to her, so I know Tenerife quite well. On being dropped off at the Princess Dacil we were in a queue for check in and I looked around at the alterations since my last visit, noting that the reception area was not so welcoming as I remembered from my last visit. The guests checking in before us started a conversation with us about was this our first visit, to be prepared for a long wait for check in. It was a long wait, but all became clear when we checked in as you are asked if you want to upgrade to all inclusive, you are informed that the hotel is a non cash hotel so if you want any extras (if you don't want all inclusive) then you need to open an account and pay a 50E deposit. TV, wi fi, sun loungers, hair dryer all extras too. This is why the check in takes so long. But the staff were extremely helpful, efficient and helpful. We were given our keys but then left to our own devices to find our rooms, not told what floors we were on, how to use the keys etc. We've been on holiday before and know about these things, but if you weren't used to this, then there was no porter or anyone to help you - something I've not come across before on my holidays. The rooms were excellent with lovely views at no extra cost. Our only disappointment was there was a bar inside but not really one you could sit in and have a quiet drink. feel comfortable in and make friends - its called the Sports Bar and there is a huge screen playing football. The reception area had a singer/pianist in the evenings, but he was so loud that we could hardly hold a conversation without shouting. Old fashioned music, but some couples liked it, dancing fox trots, waltzes to it, so for the older generation really. The outside entertainment was average compared to other hotels I've stayed at. We were disappointed that there was no spanish music or entertainment such as spanish flamingo displays - we felt we were back home in England in a working mens club. The food was very good, a very good choice at all meal times and the staff were very friendly and approachable. Would I go again - probably, but I would know next time what to expect. More

Clean, comfortable, good food friendly staff, Shame about all the "extras"

I was puzzled by some of the really negative reviews. We stayed for a week on a half board basis and found it a good place to stay. Our room was clean and comfortable and although there was no air conditioning, we kept it cool by leaving the windows open and the curtains closed while we were out. The food was very varied and tasty with lots of fresh produce and I never saw any dried up meals, flies or dirty plates during our stay. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. (special mention for Ricardo on reception and Miguel and Ayoze in the restaurant who were unfailingly cheerful and willing to help) One or two things niggled - like the extra charge for things like hairdryers and fridge and the high cost of internet access (we didn't bother) but I guess that prices here are kept down by the large number of tour operators using the hotel and so the Melia chain is looking to make some extra money somewhere! Plus it seems that the hotels here rely on external providers for internet so are not able to offer such a good access as you get in the UK.More
