Stayed here with my wife for 10 days, second week in June and could not fault this hotel.I booked this hotel through the Melia Hotels International and joined Melia rewards club, so I could check in on line before we traveled so no queuing when we arrived.Reception staff were always very helpful,hotel was always spotless which was down to the brigade of cleaning staff that worked here.Stayed on the seventh floor room 2709 which had a great side view of the sea looking to the west.Rooms cleaned every day to a high standard. We booked our stay for breakfast & lunch or evening meal.Food was good, great selection.Bar staff very good,entertainment at the back pool was o`k finishes at 11.pm.The lagoon style pools were great but we spent most of our time at the back pool less hectic and access to the promenade and beach.Really enjoyed our stay and would come back again.
Excellent hotel , very clean and food was good , however there is no tea/coffee facilities in the room, I would expect these in a hotel.the adult entertainment was quite good and the children's pool area was great.
Great hotel clean friendly Staff very good Kids club staff great with kids Restaurant food good selection Fab pools good entertainment . Stayed in family room in hotel huge room perfect for family of 4 .
Have just come back from a 10 night stay at Sol Principe and have mixed opinions on the hotel hence the average rating.The transfer from the airport was surprisingly quick taking around 15 minute which was great. The check in process was very quick and easy, even though we were there early they still had our room ready as soon as we got there. The whole process took around 15 minutes.First impressions of the room were that it was very clean, tidy and well presented. However the room itself was a lot smaller than we are used to but nice none the less. Bathroom was very modern but like most hotels the hairdryer was terrible. We had a side sea view room which had a nice view of the beach front. One major let down was the cleaning service. Each time we wanted our room cleaned it would take place between 4-5pm. As we liked to spend most of the day out, this is the time we would like to relax before our evening meal. On top of this, the sheets were never changed throughout the 10 night stay. On one occasion we had no toilet roll whatsoever and the cleaners did not provide us with anymore resulting in us having to find them and ask for it ourselves. We were also enjoying the views on the balcony and were suddenly greeted with a dustpan full of dirt from the cleaner cleaning the room above. Noise was also an issue whilst staying at the Sol Principe. Noisy hallways and neighbouring rooms resulting in us having to call reception at gone midnight. Which didn't resolve the issue.Dining at the hotel had it's highs and lows depending on different nights of the week. There was a wide variety of of choice but the food lacked quality in some areas. i.e we love pizza but after the first night we never had it again. Dining staff were always miserable and struggled to crack a smile although being attentive to clearing plates. We did not realise prior that the hotel would not provide water at lunch and dinner if you are not all inclusive. The cheapest drink was water (500ml) which cost €2.30, which isn't the end of the world but over 10 nights our party of 6 ordering one drink of water each per day totalled €138.... for water!! With most holidays sun beds can be an issue and Sol Principe was no exception. Prior to our visit we read reviews covering issues with sun beds, to which hotel management stated that they had hired someone to ensure people were not reserving sun beds prior to the pool opening time. This was not the case. Throughout our stay we noticed at the small pool sun beds were being covered with towels from 7.30am and on some occasions earlier with nobody actually occupying the sun beds. With regards to the larger pool that opens at 11am sun beds were not available for use until later. Therefore people were placing plastic chairs with towels to reserve spaces for their sun beds. (I have uploaded images)One amazing thing about the hotel was the wifi which was free of charge. We were lucky to have a router in our room which ensured high speed internet throughout our stay.Overall our stay at the Sol Principe was enjoyable but has room for a lot of improvement. Staff let them down in certain areas. We have been to multiple 4* hotels all and Sol Principe was no comparison to them.
Last stayed here in 2007. The noise stopped me from returning.Decided to extend this holiday to 2 weeks so stayed here for 3 nights.The rooms have been updated. Excellent sleep quality. Improved noise cancelling in the patio door. The restaurant was impressive, good food options.But...this is a busy hotel/resort and it wouldn't be for me in true high season as it's just too populated.Reception is hectic and one can be waiting a long time for a simple request - calling a taxi for example.The pool at the back of the hotel (beach side) was too warm in my view and too shallow (and I can't swim!)All in all a decent place but personally I'm after a little more sedate environment for my hols.
