my husband and i have staved at the princesa dacil many times and really enjoyed it,but this time not so! for some unknown reason all the entertainment is all inside it has been turned into butlins/benidorm!! before it was outside in the lovely garden,now in the evenings the gardens are all in darkness,such a shame the management have killed it stone dead.

Room Tip: bet rooms poolside

The hotel was spotless with excellent facilities and amazing evening entertainment. The food was very good with lots to choose from. Can't fault the hotel. The pool area was great with daily pool games and activities, they even had a parrot show!

Stayed for a week on a half board basis. Good clean hotel with good standard of food. Clara at reception very friendly & helpful, other reception staff not so.
Not possible to pay for drinks or wine with cash, have to buy credit at reception 50 euro minimum. We noticed that this was causing a lot of confusion and embarrassment to guests.

We booked the holiday last minute and read reviews after we had paid. We were very worried after reading so many bad reviews.

I really don't see what the huge problem is with this hotel, we had a great time here. The hotel is extremely clean, the food is great- the food is mostly the same everyday but it tastes fine. We were also extremely lucky to have our room on one of the higher floors ( I think it was floor 11 with a pool view). The view is beautiful. The location is very close to the beach and the centre of Los Cristianos which is really nice to walk around. It is impossible to get lost as you can see the hotel literally from Las Americas - I think its the tallest hotel in the Los Cristanos.

The entertainment was absolutely brilliant - we had good laughs every night, the entertainers work so hard and try to involve everyone. My favourite nights were the snake show and the Chinese circus! There sometimes a queue for the bar but the staff work as fast as they can!

While your here don't just stay in the hotel all day. I would seriously recommend 2 excursions on this holiday, one to the siam park in Las Americas and the other one to go to the top of mount Tiedie. We did both and they made the holiday one of the best we had ever had. I would recommend you buy the tickets for both at a local excursions shop, they do all the phoning and running around, you just pay - this saves you a lot of time and saves all the hassle of doing it your self.

The water park has some of the best water slides I have been on - make sure you go on everything (the amber and red slides are the best).

Going up the mountain was a life experience and the national park is absolutely beautiful (bring a camera).

If there are any young people going who want to go out, the night life in Las Americas is brilliant. - When me and friend went out we would drink at the bar in the hotel till it shuts at 11, then get a taxi into Las Americas (costs 5 euros) and find where the most lively place was - its a good night out.

I would say the hotel suits all type of people, family's, young people and couples! It has the bets location near to the beach, the old town, near the water park, 10 minutes away from good night life! Definitely go back in a few years!

Room Tip: Try get a room on a higher floor on the pool side for a great view!

Just back from a wonderful week in the Sol Princesa Dacil, Tenerife. The service we received from the moment we arrived was second to none. We received an upgrade and had a beautiful room plus sitting room with a balcony and pool view on the 5th Floor. The service and quality of food in the buffet restaurant was excellent we were on half board basis so had breakfact and dinner each day with plenty of choices. Staff were friendly and very helpful. This hotel is in an excellent location, a few minutes to the beach and the main resort. I will certainly be returning to this hotel.
