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.

Nice All inclusive Hotel
A nice hotel, close to everything both the beach and the city. If you have possibility to choose room, try to get a room as high as possible. the view over the sea at the evening is nice. If you get a room on the front side (the entrance ) be aware of all the noises every morning from the delivering transports to the hotel. The room was clean and nice and there is nothing to complain about. In the dining room there is a lot of choices of food, for all tastes. Try to visit the dining room as early or late you can, because there is a lot of noises when the dining room is full. Very nice snacks and sports bar. Nice activities for the kids during the day, the staff were really engaged in the activities. The entertainment in the evenings was ok If you prefer to drink Swedish coffee it is possible to visit the Swedish church where you also can read Scandinavian newspaper.More

Don't go all inclusive
People we met paid over Â£600 more per couple than we did for all inclusive (Thomson holidays), yet when we checked in the hotel offered us an upgrade for â¬10/pp/night approx Â£120/couple, a saving of nearly Â£500!! Personally I recommend b&b at best as there are so many & far better places to eat that are cheaper than this hotel. I cannot fault the staff or cleanliness, but the food was awful. Plenty of it but the quality was the worst I've come across. The cheapest nastiest cuts of meat, casseroles that looked (& tasted like slop!) Food was cold (Luke warm at best) they even had microwaves in the canteen area (it's not a restaurant by any stretch of the imagination) to warm your food in!! Also the "all inclusive" bar started charging for drinks after 11pm.!!! Que starters orders for mass orders of drinks at 10:50pm!! All in all a good location clean hotel but eat/drink elsewhere, a shame about the penny pinching cheapness attitude of the management. Food standards truly abmismal I also recommend going later than January as this area resembled a large 'care home community' due to age of the majority of people out thereMore

Another Excellent Vacation at the Princesa Dacil
My wife and I returned to the hotel on 30 December 2014 to enjoy the experience of a Spanish New Year and a couple of weeks vacation. We have stayed at the Princesa Dacil on numerous occasions since first being introduced to it by friends in 1999, and we have never yet had a poor holiday experience. Like all hotels it has its ups and downs, but the standard has never fallen to a state where we would never return and some of the poor reports make me wonder if they are staying in the same hotel. Then again. maybe some people forget that this is a three star hotel and have expectations of it being a five star. The property dates back to 1972 and is somewhat dated when viewed against more modern complexes, but the hotel is maintained by its own team of technicians, is always kept clean and the staff are always very friendly and helpful. As I have already said, we have frequented the hotel since 1999 and it's amazing how many people we meet year after year. If it was as bad as depicted by some reports, people would not return year after year the way they do. I for one am certain that we would not do so. Staff on reception has changed over the years, but the quality has always been high and this latest visit confirmed this to still be the case. If there are any problems they are only too willing to assist and to rectify things where that is within their power. We had a minor problem with an electric socket, but within 20 minutes of reporting it the technician arrived and it was sorted. What more can you ask for? Perhaps we are somewhat spoilt as we always ask for a superior room, which is a room on one of the top three floors. These rooms, unlike the standard rooms, are equipped with a hair drier, a fridge and air conditioning, but a trawl of the hotel pages on melia.com will advise of facilities that are provided. The food this year, I am really pleased to report, was of a much improved standard. While we have always enjoyed the food and the available selection, this year has seen perhaps the best quality we have enjoyed over the years, for which we must congratulate the chefs and kitchen staff. As always, the waiting staff in the restaurant have been exceptional and have yet again assisted me with my very poor attempts at Spanish, but, if you don't try you don't learn. So it's a massive thank you to all the staff in the restaurant for making mealtimes so enjoyable. The same can be said about the bar staff, many of whom double up in both the bars and the restaurant. To mention just a few - Jairo; Casiano; Melisa, Carlos; David; Adrian; Berto; Balbina; Jose; Pacheco; Alicia; Carlotta; Ayoze; Antonio and Eduardo, plus the many others who are not mentioned. It's because of people like you that we keep returning. You are now our second family. Finally, the entertainment over our stay was once again excellent. There have been some excellent entertainment teams over the years and this year is no exception. The entertainment manager, Jordie, choreographs some very good team shows to entertain the tourists and runs a very tight ship. This animation team for 2015 sees Jordie assisted by Akif; Cristina and David. All are excellent entertainers. If I was Jordie, I would say that while the team is excellent, there was one team member who appeared to stand out a little more than the others. Akif is someone to watch in coming years. A trainee of very few months, he has already learned how to best interact with the guests and how to best motivate them. He is also very eager to learn and could be a very good candidate for entertainment manager in years to come. Jordie, watch out! The final member of the entertainments team is Seven Quintero Trujillo. Seven plays the keyboards and provides all the music for dancing up to midnight. His most noted and prized instrument is the Yamaha Tyros IV, which is truly a spectacular instrument. Of the external professional entertainers, the Beatles tribute group is by far the best, although there is also a fantastic soul singer also on their schedule. Neither are to be missed.More
