“cant wait to go back !”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

definately recommend this hotel to couples and families. i went im april with partner baby and 4yr old. it was very quiet just what i wanted, everything to ourselves, but outdoor pools icy cold so thank god for indoor pool! although we did get in an bear the cold one day! right across from beach, close to everything, rooms spotless, staff very nice an helpful, we werent flying till late on our last day and it was 15euro to keep our room til 6 oclock . looking to book for maybe june or july when more children around for my 4yr old to play with. id give the food in the hotel a miss tho, not a great selection for dinner, 18 eur each buffet without drinks but all i had was chicken and salad!! did not try breakfast so cant comment on that.plenty of places around to eat out anyways.

Spent just one night here but I was very impressed, large hotel with lots of facilities. Just opposite the beach with a couple of really good Chiringitos (beach bars)

we stayed here over the easter holidays we enjoyed a lot the hotel is lovley couldnt fault it
the pool areas are fantastic we didnt swim in the outdoor pools it was still a little cold but we did avail of the heated indoor pool which was lovely
we are a livley fun loving couple in our early 40s we found the hotel a bit to quite for us but im sure its more just the time of year we stayed i would certainly stay again but it seemed ideal for the over 50s
one small maon i would have would be the SINGLE beds just pushed together not very comfortable or romantic but other than that a very nice hotel great location and spotlessly clean

Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed for 7 nights in April 2012 at the Sol Principe.

Hotel
It is a very nice clean hotel, large reception & indoor seating area. Nice clean & tidy pool areas with plenty of sunbeds. There was nightly entertainment in the bar area (we went a couple of times and it was good).

Rooms
We had a sea view room and it was very large & clean. Plenty of storage space, nice balcony, spacious bathroom with hair dryer, Soap,Shower Gel et al. TV only had 2 channels in English, both of which were news! Beds were comfortable and there were extra pillows & blankets if required. Plug sockets were a bit lacking, we only had one so if you're a techy you will have to plan your charging times!

Restaurant
There was only the main restaurant open when we stayed (there is a Flinstones Restaurant too that's only open in peak season). We stayed half board so had breakfast and you can choose either Lunch or Dinner each day.

It is buffet style & even though we stayed off peak the restaurant was always very busy (more so at weekends) it is a very noisy restaurant and not conducive to a nice relaxing holiday meal. It was a bit like school dinner times it was so noisy with people crowding round the food at one side and then the waiters clearing the plates in "hidden" (but not soundproof areas) on the other side (it sounded sometimes like the plates were being thrown about as they were clearing them, it was so noisy.
There is a lot of choice in the food, Salad Bar,Soup, Pasta, Pizza,Fried Fish,Stews,Paella & desserts etc. I am not a fussy eater but some of it is quite bland and overcooked. The paella was very nice though.

Area
Nice quiet area of Torremolinos. Only a 10-15 minute walk to La Colina Rail station (it's about a 15 min walk to Torremolinos staion too but a bit more steep if you have luggage.

Overall we had a nice stay but the restaurant lets the hotel down (definitely not 4 star service). I've stayed at a few other hotels in the area that are a lot better, if I returned to the Principe it would be on a room only basis as the restaurant is just really too noisy.

Massive reception but staff a little slow. Counted 6 all standing there but nobody wants to talk. Rooms disappointing for a 4 star but clean and tidy. TV has only English news channels. Location good. At time of stay the place was full of French pensioners. They were OK but a bit demanding.
