The Sol Principe Hotel is located in the popular beach resort of Torremolinos, on Spain’s Costa del Sol. The hotel is situated right on the seafront, so its only a few minutes walk from the stunning Playamar beach, and has beautiful sea views from most of its rooms. Being so close to both the beach and the vibrant town centre, the Sol Principe Hotel is the ideal location for both couples and families seeking a relaxing getaway, or a fun-filled holiday in the sun!

The hotel has a large, lagoon-style outdoor swimming pool, with a spacious sun terrace and poolside bar – surrounded by lush gardens and palm trees that provide some dappled shade – making it the perfect place for relaxing in the hot Spanish sun. There are plenty of other excellent facilities and activities to make use of on your stay, too, including a massage parlour, beauty shop, fitness centre, games room and indoor pool, with a children’s playground to keep the little ones entertained.

The Sol Principe has 800 rooms (513 of which have sea views), including 162 family suites with lagoon views, 80 single rooms, and a further 36 family suites with sea views. The rooms are all spacious, well decorated, and are equipped with everything you’ll need to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including air conditioning, heating, satellite television, telephone, mini-fridge, hair dryer, and a private balcony or terrace.

Meals are served daily in the hotel restaurant, which has a fantastic outdoor seating area, but as the hotel is so centrally located, there are also a wide variety of restaurants nearby for dining out.

There is plenty to see and do both in the hotel and the area surrounding the Sol Principe. There are lots of water parks and golf courses nearby, as well as all the shops, bars and nightlife that Torremolinos has to offer only a short walk away.

Southern Spain's answer to Benidorm, Torremolinos is a vast purpose-built holiday resort situated 10 miles (16km) west of Malaga, on the road to Marbella. Holidaymakers looking for a cultural experience will be disappointed, as Torremolinos, particularly in high season, is noisy and fast-paced, 24 hours a day. With six miles (10km) of wide, sandy beaches, lots of watersports, masses of bars and restaurants and an exhausting nightlife, the resort attracts tourists of all ages from all over Europe. There is a large gay scene, but the resort is equally popular with families and the inevitable 18 to 30 crowd.


Most holidaymakers come to Torremolinos to spend idle days on one of its beautiful beaches. The largest and most popular two are Playamar and Bajondillo, both offering safe swimming and all sorts of watersports. Bars and cafés along the promenade offer respite and refreshment away from the sun. The nearby water park is one of the best on the continent and is a great family day out. Visit www.aqualand.esfor more information. Popular excursions from the resort include a trip to El Ranchito, a wonderful show where horses and riders display their skill in a form of equestrian ballet, choreographed to music www.ranchito.comThe spectacular hilltop town of Ronda is also worth a visit for those wanting to escape the beach for a day.


The best places to eat out in the holiday resort of Torremolinos are Bar El Mojito, Nuevo Lanjaron, Frutos del Mar and Bodegas Quitapenas. Torremolinos is packed with restaurants catering for the tourist trade and menus, usually in a few languages, offer good staple dishes such as fish and chips, steak, pasta and schnitzel. However, some excellent Spanish restaurants are also around, particularly those serving tapas. The best seafood restaurants are in the fisherman's district of La Carihuela, which has been relatively undisturbed by high-rise hotels and has retained its Andalucian coastal charm. The upmarket harbour at Puerto Banus is only ten miles (16km) along the coast and is packed with good restaurants overlooking rows of expensive-looking yachts.


Holidaymakers should visit Kiss Bar, El Open Arms, Tinas Bar or The Viking in Torremolinos for a good time. The nighttime can be fairly intense, with dozens of bars and clubs catering for all tastes and persuasions. A good place to start the evening is in one of the tavernas in Calle San Miguel or in one of the cafés and restaurants that line the promenade. The clubs start to open at around 10pm; the Palladium disco being a good bet. The best selection of clubs is along Avda Palma de Mallorca. There is a big gay scene in Torremolinos centred on La Nogalera, where the clubs vary from the mainstream to drag bars. Exotic shows are a feature here and are popular with both the gay and straight visitors.


There is a great range of shops in Torremolinos ranging from international clothes stores to lots of small shops catering for holidaymakers. Good buys include the local jewellery, leather goods and the famous Spanish Lladro porcelain. For self-caterers, there is a good selection of corner shops and supermarkets stocking all the well-known international brands. Calle San Miguel is at the heart of the shopping centre; it is an attractive pedestrianised street, flanked by small shops and cafes and is a good place to sip sangria and people watch for those not interested in shopping. More extensive shopping can be found in Malaga.


Torremolinos is a sprawling purpose-built holiday resort; those expecting any cultural or architectural merit will be disappointed. Explore a few miles inland, however, and the real Spain can quickly be discovered. As with most large resorts Torremolinos is very commercial, tourists are regularly pestered by salesmen selling everything from trinkets to timeshare apartments. Be firm and don't trust anyone with scratch cards. Guests at some hotels have to climb lots of steps when returning from the beach - elderly people should check before booking, however in general the resort is easy to get around with an excellent bus and train system. The centre of Torremolinos is fairly run-down in places; the suburbs of Benalmadena and Fuengirola are cleaner, friendlier and cheaper.
