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.

Could be much better.
Negatives first. Party of 5 Stayed 10-22nd August. Had two rooms. NO Air Con! Or fridge. As a birthday celebration upgraded 1 room to superior (these are on 13-15th floor and only for 2 people. Although we did see a third bed in one room) at a cost of â¬200. Fridge not much good. The hotel has been up around 40 years and needs modernised. Booked as it had a gym. Not much good as the treadmill was broken for our duration although I mentioned this repeatedly. Booked B & B first week as we had a lot of family in the area to visit. Wanted to upgrade to all inclusive for a couple of days however hotel rules say have to do it for rest of holiday, Cost â¬340. We did this because with no cooking facilities we had to eat out every meal. (Recommend self catering and eating out on an evening). Reception could speed things up a bit although staff were friendly. YOU HAVE TO QUEUE AT 7.30 FOR DOORS OPENING AT 8.00 IF YOU WANT A SUN BED! There is a terrace on the first floor and with a bit of attention and decking could add to the bathing area sadly it is very run down. NO FREE WIFI WAS A DISSAPOINTMENT! â¬8 per day. Positives. Entertainment programme and staff were great. Food was good and great selection although could be hotter. Found the drinks fine and better than expected. The chef on the hot plate lovely and always accommodating. All in all we had a good time but with a bit of work the hotel could improve many areas.More

The hotel is perfectly located and the rooms were fine. We stayed b&b and the breakfast wasn't up to much and getting a lift down the 11 flights of stairs can be a nightmare at breakfast time. As tenerife is so cheap id recommend eating away from the hotel and if you have a family requesting a lower level room. Apart from that a nice stay. More

Stayed here 2/08/14 to 16/08/14 as a couple, on arrival got booked in quickly room 1321 on the 13th floor poolside view, the room was fantastic, got aircon a fridge and hairdryer in bathroom, the bathroom was also a good size,the room was cleaned daily with clean towels every day. there are 4 lifts in the hotel although very hot inside all worked , the hotel has a no money routine where you have to set up a tab or use a credit card, we were all incl but only used our credit note twice after the all inc ended at 23.00, prices at the bar were exspensive for a brandy coke 2 Malibu and coke and a gin and tonic 22 euros ouch. The food was not up to much lived on fried egg on toast for breakfast, chip butties and soup at lunch, soup and a few better choices but they were repeated regularly, we started to eat out more towards the end of our stay.very cramped around the poolside not enough seats at night for the repetitive entertainment at night, The only bar in the hotel was small understaffed and could not cope ,had to queue the majority of the time , sometimes at least 25 in the queue. The animation team did a fantastic job the only thing I can say is they need some more material for the kids it was the same every night same songs same games crap prizes. Not enough toilets for the size of the hotel , all in all not a bad hotel just needs a bloody good shake up , some nice staff, a couple need personality transplants. MIGUEL in the Restaurant was always smiling spoke to everyone and does a great job. Last gripe is when Man city and Arsenal were on telly playing for the charity shield we had to go and find a bar that was showing it BUT when Real Madrid and Seville were playing they opened another bar with a big screen for the Spanish to watch, makes you wonder .More

Best holiday in a long time!
Firstly let me start by saying ignore any negative reviews you may read. It seems that some people are only happy when they have something to complain about! My hubby, our two boys aged 6 and 3 and myself stayed here on an All Inclusive basis from the 6th-20th August and we had a fab fab time! The hotel and rooms are lovely and clean and the staff are very friendly and polite. There were plenty of activities too which were free apart from a returnable deposit like tennis, table tennis and mini golf. The food is great with a good selection of different things every day and something for everyone. The drinks were good with quite a big selection of different ones including a couple of cocktails that were in with the all inclusive which was fab! The surrounding area is lovely too and the beach is very pretty but we preferred to stay by the pool, which is very well kept and set in pretty gardens, where there was loads going on for both kids and adults pretty much all day. Based on a Flintstones theme, the kids club was excellent with a climbing wall, super jumper trampoline and all kinds of games and arts and crafts, as well as an inflatable pool slide and a crazy pool mat they brought out regularly. There was water polo, darts and table tennis competitions for the adults too. The evening entertainment was really good too with a mini disco for the kids and varied selection of acts which were all excellent and family friendly and loads of fun and games by the entertainment staff, such as quizzes, shows and stand up bingo which were a real laugh. The entertainment staff were the real stars though - Jordi, Maria, Ana, Kevin, Alberto and Etienne worked tirelessly to make everything fun for everybody and they were as energetic and enthusiastic at midnight as they were first thing in the morning! They were full of fun and made a good holiday a fabulous one. They deserve medals and a huge pay rise! Oh and Miguel, one of the waiters in the restaurant was lovely too. But they were all great. Would we go back? We'd love to!!!!!More

Lovely time had by all. As expected for a 3 star hotel but where food was a bit dodgy at times the alcohol and soft drinks were great. Could do with ceiling fans in every room and beds need a bit of give. The sofa bed was more comfortable! Bit like sleeping on the floor. Staff are great and rooms are very clean as are the general areas and public loos. Would come back but know what to request in the room now!More
