Great accomodation, great area,great staff, great food. My wife and I have been staying at this hotel for over 20 years, and it has only got better with time. Over the last 2 years the apartments have been renovated to a high standard, the outdoor pool has been enlarged, and the hotel redecorated.
We are in our late 60's and experienced travelers and have stayed in various hotels on the Costa Del Sol twice a year in autumn and winter for the last four years and look for value for money. Virtually everything about the Sol Principe is excellent and this includes the rooms [we had a beach facing outside corner room which was marvelous, but frankly indulgent for just two of us], the excellent and very wide choice of food, the variety of televisions and channels, both in the room and in lounge areas, cleanliness and general quality of staff. Two disadvantages for us were the fact that despite having so many outside pools not one is heated during the low season, which we found very disappointing. There is an inside heated pool, but it is small and, certainly when we were there, uncomfortably hot. It was a pleasure to experience the hotel, but we now choose to stay elsewhere for two reasons.The first is value for money. We do not need the luxury this hotel affords and prefer cheaper hotels where you are adequately served for much less cost. Secondly, we found the area rather isolated. Many of you will find the following comments rather nit-picking points, but here goes. We walk a lot while on holiday and we find the promenades further towards Torremolinos town and further up towards Benalmedena marina far more attractive and entertaining. In addition, if you want to get into the high town centre you have to get a bus [the Loop Bus] or walk up several flights of steep stairs. When we have stayed in the Town Centre we got used to a pleasant stroll through the always busy town.If you like and can afford luxurious beach holidays and are happy to stay 'on site' in the main then Sol Principe is excellent.
Went this hotel in October 2016 for a by of sun before winter. Perfect location for this as Torremolinos has only 5 days of rain a year apparently. Lovely big modern hotel, all parts of the hotel are modern. Looks like it has so many rooms and can imagine in the summer if this is full it can be a bit overcrowded but was fine when we went.Easy check in. Nice sea view room, spacious and clean. Was only bed and breakfast so ate out most of the time. Reason why I mention this is because the fridge in the room was not cold. They are either not the best fridges or they were not working properly either way I didn't complain as we were only there for a few days. Breakfast was nice, lots of selection for all different nationalities. Big room to fit everyone in. Was quiet a good gym, free weights only go up to 16kg but was good enough for a holiday gym. Pool was again big, I know why they call it a lagoon. Not an amazing amount of sun beds around the pool which again if he Hotel was full could cause a problem. They also have an indoor warm pool of you would prefer that. Location - IMPORTANT - it is a good location over looking the beach and is a nice 15 minute walk up the beach to torremolinos town centre with plenty of shops and restaurants on the beach promenade. However when you get near Torremolinos town centre from the beach you have two options. Go up a very big steep staircase or go up a sloped street with market shops all along it. I preferred this way however street is whinding and can easily take a wrong turn. Also with the market stalls either side the path is quite narrow in places and people just seem to stop dead in the middle of the path to look at things in the shop. Annoying. Trip went smoothly no problems with the hotel. On checkout went and sat around the pool and when time for our flight they provided us with a complimentary room to shower and sort ourselves. I now realise is a nice touch as so many hotels do not offer this and is very inconvenient. Great hotel, modern and good location.
We have been here before and felt us feel good, but the future will probably choose to stay outside for the season, which can be spoiled a little more for guests. The balcon to the sea is perfeckt in a nice and still area.
I have stayed in many Sol Melia hotels and my experience has always been very good with this group. I loved this hotel, great location, lovely staff, fabulous pools and nice choice of food with good variations daily.The only gripe I have is with the restuarant, don't get me wrong it a very nice large space but trying to find a seat to eat was a problem for every meal, every day it was always packed, the noise from talking, plates crashing and cutlery jangling was quite off-putting and instead of having a leisurely lunch or dinner it was a case of eat up and get out! I don't suppose there is a lot that the management can do about that though.
