Close to beach.

Food is not the greatest. Rooms are not updated but they are functional. In /out bar drinks are pre-mixed stuff, not good at all.

ok hotel

Posted 09-Mar-2017
Pros: the things that where on offer , ie gym , indoor swimming pool and the breakfast had a very good selection off food
Cons: the channels on the TV's could possibly have some English speaking channels
Location: location was good if you like the beach as this was across the road but other than that we found very little to do around hotel
i found this hotel very nice indeed was excellent in most departments other than the rooms as i found the twin room on offer was small for 2 people and they need to look at making some off the TV channels in English as all ours where in Spainish but we found most off the people we spoke too spoke english

Good big touristy hotel

Posted 27-Feb-2017
Pros: Location, room, bathroom and beds. Kettle was a bonus.
Cons: Hard to say but room description could include constant shade
For what it is , sol principe does things very well. Dining room noisy, pushy, crowded but no queue at door, good variety of food with occasional excellent surprises. Main drawback was room description. In other hotels along this coast this would have described as a side-sea view not seaview. Also the angle of the hotel meant meant that the excellent balcony was never in the sunshine. This was very disappointing as the weather was good. Reception helpful.

Nice hotel

Posted 22-Feb-2017
Huge hotel that has extremely friendly staff willing to help you out with anything and everything. The hotel has everything with beautiful rooms, dining rooms, party areas, terraces, pools. The only issue was that the beds are very soft and not comfortable if you have any back issues at all. You need to ask staff for a board (plywood) to place under the mattress for better support. As well, there is a cost of approximately 12 Euros for using the safe in the room. There is a large supermercado (Mercadona) near the hotel as well as a pharmacy. While the dining room for the breakfast was nice with lots of food displayed at various stations, there were way too many people! It was crazy the morning it was raining - all the tables were taken and people are sneezing and coughing all over the place near the food! Be careful! The staff are great and try to keep the buffet room clean and the bedrooms clean.

Excellent hotel

Posted 25-Jan-2017
Pros: Good choice in bar and food.
Cons: A few more tv channels in English.
Location: A little way from the town and all uphill but found a lift to take you from just off sea front to edge of town. Plenty of bars and places to eat.
Great hotel, nice rooms. Superb choice in dining room.

Great hotel, great location!

Posted 02-Oct-2016
I got back from a 5 night stay at the Sol Principe Hotel with my boyfriend yesterday and we loved this hotel. It was clean, well kept and the staff were friendly. We went half board and were very impressed with the range of food on offer, there really was something for everyone. Check in was quick and staff were very informative. Our room was clean and spacious. The pool areas are very clean, but busy. We struggled to find a spot to have sunbeds a couple of times. People seemed to put their towels out all day and never came down and used the pool. The location of the hotel was excellent. Opposite the beach and a short walk to restaurants and beach bars. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family!

Nice Family Hotel, But not a 4*

Posted 15-Sep-2016
Pros: Location Clean rooms Near train station and bus station Town 15-20 min walk away Good Food selection Near to Bars
Cons: Clean cutlery and plates at dinner and breakfast Friendly staff Quicker check-in Less rowdy by the pool
Location: Bio-park on the train , Aquapark, Malaga city on train, Dolphin park on train, Torremolinos shops 15 min walk, Beach across the road, Taxis nearby.
Nice hotel in a great location, the rooms very clean and modern and lots of facilities on site. Good food selection for breakfast and dinner. However on arrival at the hotel we were faced with a 40 people deep queue at check in. After an hour of waiting patiently to check in we were then told our room was not ready despite it being past the 1400 check in time (not a great start for a 4* hotel) It seemed there was not enough staff at the hotel to deal with the number of guests. The room was lovely with partial sea views, it was cleaned daily by the maids and had everything we needed including a small fridge. The only negative thing i will say about the room is we backed onto a very noisy air vent from the kitchen area which ran all day and night and even with the balcony doors closed we could hear it which wasn't ideal for when we wanted to sleep. Breakfast and dinner was of a good standard, lots of choice. The dining room was always busy and could be quite rowdy at times so don't expect a romantic meal. Also waiting staff were rude and as people left their tables they prepared them with no cutlery for the next guests. Both breakfast and dinner i found dirty plates and cutlery that were supposed to be cleaned, every breakfast I had to literally hunt through the clean glass pile to find a clean glass for my Orange juice (not 4* treatment) and if you want to sit by the pool in the day, don't bother as all the beds are taken up, we found the beach was much more pleasant.
