Sol Princesa Dacil
Travel Blogs from Los Cristianos
So this was my first ever vacation that I went on alone. Prior to this it has always been with family or not at all. LOL. So this was new. I have to say that I took a lot of heckling from the French about this. As I made my preparations for tickets, cell phones etc, they would ask me if I was going with my boyfriend. No, I would say. Well why not? Because I don't have one. What, you don't have a boyfriend!?? Then their eyes would bulge a ...
... and honest to god it was like stepping on a grape. Those things are very juicy. Yeeech. Then of course when I tried to pick him up with a wad of toilet paper to throw him out he proceeded to fall on the floor before I got him to the can and HE WAS STILL TWITCHING! I see why they say that they could survive a nuclear attack. It was traumatizing for everyone that's for sure. The nights were not restful after that as we worried about what might be crawling around our room in the ...
... we made a day of walking through the city and wound our way back to the dock. I took tons of pictures to show you how beautiful this city is but all with cell phone. Hard to believe I walked off ship without my camera!
Most of the people we encountered spoke English but I really felt at a disadvantage not speaking Spanish. I don't know if we'll get back here to The Canaries, but it was a great experience to see the two islands we did. ...
... flew back from Buenos Aires.
When we arrived it Manchester, it took absolutely ages waiting at the luggage carousel for our cases to arrive. Then it was onto the shuttle bus and back to the long-term car parking, where we picked up our Vauxhall Meriva for the drive back to Durham.
We arrived back home right on the stroke of midnight; the end of another fabulous holiday in some unusual places.Here’s to the next time! ...
... the car and reading up, whilst waiting in line for an hour, on a popular walk to do. Once receiving the car we got changed into our togs and headed for the walk which happened to be close to a beach, the weather at 20 odd degrees in winter was warm enough to go for a swim surprisingly. The walk was excellent, we saw paragliders floating above hotels and restaurants and stopped by a beautiful beach that looked more ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Princesa Dacil Los Cristianos
This hotel is a good 'base' if you want to get out and about on the island. The top 3 floors are air conditioned, of a good standard, and maintained every day. Most of the staff are friendly, and my first impression was of a 'holiday camp' atmosphere. All it needed was Sua Pollard to give a 'Hi-di Hi' each morning really.
I'm 14 and it is my second time stopping at Sol Princesa Dacil with my family. Had a great holiday as we did the last time. The entertainment was alrite, and this time they had a downstairs disco from 11pm untill 2 in the morning which was good for me and my mates i met there. The drinks are quite expensive at the hotel. Staff are very friendly. The beach and shops are only 5 - 10 minutes away from the hotel which is ideal. Taxi's are cheap enough. A good bar i would reccomend is 'Chicago's' which is just 5 minutes walk along the sea front which does good food and drinks with night time entertainment. The food in the hotel is not brilliant but is okay. They have chips and nuggets which is good, and you can usually find something to eat as there is a wide variety to choose from. Anabell is a good entertainer and made the holiday great. The rooms are spacious and have TV's and a great shower which i went in like twice every day. Only the top 3 floors have air conditioning so it is a good idea to hire a fan from reception for about 25 euros. If your worrying about seeing lots of cockroaches then theres no need to because we saw 1 cockroach in the hotel in the whole 2 weeks of stopping at the hotel. Lots of good activities during the day, which you dont need to be in the kids club to do. The entertainers run these activities and are for all ages. Overall i had a brilliant holiday and would definateley consider going back there again.
Amazing as Always
The hotel is always brilliant,as are all the staff and the entertainments team. We'll be coming back for our 7th time, theirs no doubt about that! See you all later this year or next year!
Just arrived back from another great holiday at the Dacil.Hotel nice & clean food great as always.Staff excellent ,friendly& helpful.This was our 3rd yr there already booked for next yr! Rooms are spacious.Entertainment at night is good but entertainment team not as good as last yr. EXCELLENT holiday for families.It has got a kids club as well & they have a mini disco for the kids at night to keep them entertained.
I went there with my friend Amy and her parents. we had our own room which was perfect for us, it did not have air conditioning which the superior rooms on the 13th, 14th and 15th floors had, but we found it ok with the windows and balcony door open. there were activities to do in the day, demonstrations on sangria making and piela making and in the evening about 6 we got ready for dinner, mind you we werent ready until 7. dinner opens at 6, and closes at 10, one night i went in for another sneaky meal as i was still hungry after the first, i got mocked by the resturant staff for doing this for the rest of my holiday though. waiting staff are really fun, but the best people to know are the entertainment staff! they are really funny and made the holiday worthwhile. they leave in the next 3 weeks though when the season ends, so you may not meet the same people as we did, hope the people you meet are equally fit...did i say fit?... i meant good at their job, he he! anyway find out for yourself! lozzi.x.
i have just came home from tenerife with my boyfriend and i would definetly reccommend it to anyone! there were a couple of things that could be improved like breakfast and the reception staff but overall it was excellent. the entertainment was really good most of the time and the entertainers were really good with all of the holidaymakers! the location was really good it was near the beach, shops and bars. if your looking for a lively bar the 'bluebell' bar is a scottish bar around the corner and it was really good! oh and if you book make sure the travel agency tells you there are superior rooms because the standard rooms have no air conditioning!
have a good holiday : )
On our first visit to the Canaries we wanted a clean,smart, no hassle hotel with helpful, friendly staff, catering for young and old.
Really fit waiters (-specially Jose, hands off hes mine!) The eve entertainment was a rite laf. Hotel in v.good location, near the beach, shops+bars. Really good place, suitable 4 all!
The hotel was in a great position. Near to the promenade on which you could walk all the way to Las Americas (if you wanted). It was wheelchair-friendly and comfortable. Some of the rooms had been refurbished to a high standard (in Jan 2002) and we presume it will all be completed when we go again in Feb 2003.
We have stayed in this hotel on 6 occasions in the last 10 years which says a lot. Whatever, you need to remember that the accomodation is cheap so realistically, you only get what you pay for. Having said that, the location is good, 200 metres walk to the sandy beach (uphill walking back). The rooms have improved over the years and the refurbishment program continues. They have family rooms too. Buffet breakfast can be tiresome towards the end of two weeks (I'm being polite here!) however the buffet evening meal is usually very good with lots of variety. Pool ok, bars ok and all staff are usually very professional but friendly with it. My experience of complaints suggest that they come from the English who tend to want something for nothing. Indeed my only complaint is having to share the hotel with other English people! (I'm English too hehe )
