We visited this hotel in OctoberWe had a reservation for 4 rooms, sea view, a full board bases . We checked in 3 minutes after 14:30, at 14:33, but the Receptionist said the dining room is close. So we got our lunch at the last day.The hotel is split to 4 buildings, with different kind of rooms.At last we got 2 rooms in building no 1, with sea view, and other 2 rooms in building no 2, with partly sea view ( although we reserve sea view!!).The sea view is wonferfull.my great disappointment was the bathroom condition, there was no shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and other preparations usually found in a 4-star hotel bathroom.There is no coffee set, the room safe is chargable ,the towels at the pool are chargable (return at the end of use), to change for dry towel you have to pay 1 euro.There is a heated pool which is a great advantage. And parking is also big advantage.As mentioned above we were on full board basis, the food is Repeated. The dining room is crowded, noisy, and unpleasant. If you arrive half an hour before closing, many kinds of foods are no longer available. Drinking in the dining room is payable and quiet expensiveAt night there is noise from the corridor because the door is not sealed enough. The first night there was noise and did not sleep all night.The hotel is too crowded and noisy, too big and not feeling good. In general, I did not like the attitude toward the guest. I think the hotel is a 3 star hotel. I did not like it and Not recommend.
This hotel is not ! 4 stars maybe 2 in a good day no water in the dining room if you want to drink you have to order and pay for it ?have to paid for a safe in the room , the rooms are very poor and in a bad conditionthe dinning room are not big enough for the amount of peopleand the result is that you can't seat with your family it's very noisy the food is very simple and in the 4 days we stay there no change in the menu !the pool is nice but you have to deposit 10 euro for a towelthis is a basic service 'why charge for it ? i have been in several hotels in my vacations but i never had this kid of experience ! even the reception is very not friendly
I have stayed in a few Melia hotels before and this by far the biggest one. My husband and I stayed in a small room facing the tennis courts which as not to our liking as the terrace was very small compared to the rooms in the front. The breakfast room was huge with a lot of people, but I think the service went very well, always a clean table and organized well with plenty of coffee areas. The variety at the breakfast was very good with everything one could wish for.We never used the pool area, but it looked very impressive and plenty of options for pool activities.The beach was located just across the road which was also very convenient, with plenty of nice and good restaurants nearby.This is a very nice place if you have children as it's easy access from the airport, located in a quiet area, plenty of activities and restaurants. It's also perfect for disabled people as everything is accommodated for in that respect.
Flew out to Torremolinos for a four day break and stayed at the Sol Principe.Hotel was very clean and we had a stunning sea view room.The food was pretty standard fare for a continental buffet but very acceptable. Staff were always polite and smiling.The two pools were always busy even late in the season.All in all a great short break and would definitely come back to the Sol Principe in Torremolinos again.
NEVER A 4 STAR HOTELOk this is a true reflection on what we experienced when staying for 4 nights in October 17Good pointsNice pool areas with shade if required close to the beach, the sun beds are getting tatty though and grubby. We opted for the beach, we paid 8Euros a day for 2 comfy padded beds and a static sun shade. I not sure if the hotel actually have beds on the beach though free of charge (found this out by over hearing a conversation on our last night) the hotel did not advice us of this. There are Bali beds to book, but they are not private really and the front pool area grass is worn.Nice view from our sea view room, couldn't sit out on the west facing balcony as it was far to hot.Very clean throughout most of the hotel, the maid did enter our room though at 9.30 am when we had a do not disturb sign on the door, lucky we were decent.Close walk into town centre, bars and restaurants. Highly recommend the Tapas at El Gato15 minute transfer from the airportBad pointsAir con in the room was very poor indeed had them out to it twice but its just a very old out dated system that does not work, maintenance did a lot of banging but it never improved. This could be a problem in peak season. Fridge in the room was very old and did not cool our drinks down at all it was not much cooler than the room temperatureBeds in the room were very uncomfortable very hard and felt worn out. We booked a double bed but there are no double beds only 2 singles pushed together not very good for a cuddle with your partner 2 separate beds just pushed together but with separate bed linen for each bedPools were dirty in places and grout was black in certain areas, I know its the end of the season but this should be addressed.Lifts were very small only just get 4 people in a lift and this was VERY cosy indeed with strangersBuffet restaurant was like the zoo at breakfast hundreds of people in there at the same time as this hotel has 799 rooms and it was awful at meal times. Food was the same stuff every day mostly with the exception of a different type of meat each day, breakfast was fine, lunch seemed to have better choice than evening meal. It was 2 Euros 30 for still water at the table, I question if this was bottled, as yes it comes in a chilled glass bottle, but they were open and not sealed. So this is ridiculous for 500ml of tap water. Had a drink around the pool area 2Euros 50 for a whiskey tumbler glass of Fanta !!! far to expensive, maybe the hotel group could provide a soft drink and water package. We purchased bottled water from the supermarket at the front of the hotel.Had to pay extra to use in room safe 15 euros, with a 5 euro key return. No english TV except the news, this didnt bother us as we dont come away to watch TV.Would I go to this hotel again? sorry to say noWould I recommend this hotel? No, too dated and far far to busy even in October.
