the sol principe going since 1997 had some marvellous times.the entertainment was excellent for families but alas time changes everything.there is no longer proper entertainment for teenagers and all you hear from them is the word boring.entertainment is now geared for young children ie. the flintstones.they have changed the pool area and the new pool area is beautiful but not practical.unless you are up early and waiting for pool attendant to unlock the beds it is very hard to get beds in proper areas.there are no ball games allowed in the pools.when there are no beds at apartment pools you are forced out to hotel pool.the hotel pool is still the same as always,very nice and beds are not chained.i went in july this time and it was very full and mostly Spanish.restaurant is very noisy and the food is just ok.the hotel is as good as ever with some cutbacks ie thinner towels and air conditioning turned off during the night.i also go in june and it is much better for me whose family is now raised.the price for the room and half board is quite reasonable and having been going there all these years ihave gotten to know most of the staff and find them very friendly and hepful.the principe is not what it was and is no longer good for teenagers it is now geared for young families,so please leave hotel pool for older patrons.this is an honest and unbiased view.
