My family and I stayed three nights for the end of the year and I can't say that I was impressed. Spa area is really nice, staff at reception and restaurant were professional and friendly. Food was awful! bad choices and bad quality for dinner! There is no excuse for a four star hotel to serve such a bad quality...

Considering a beach hotel we find everything we need for a nice stay. Good breakfast, available until 10:30hrs. We selected half board, dinner, and food was diverse and...

I stayed at Hotel Principal during a conference only because it was the overflow option for Hotel Bayren Spa. The ways that Principal didn't measure up are many. I only visited the dining hall once. The food was old and over cooked served in a buffet style. The warmers accentuated the poor quality. The bread was stale. The next morning,...

We found the hotel to be very good. The staff were friendly, efficient and welcoming. We arrived on Hallowe'en weekend and expected the hotel to be busy, and it was! However, the management seemed to not have planned well enough as the evening meal was poor to say the least. There was one meat dish and one fish dish to...

Group hotel with friendly staff. We had an okay room, which especially had a nice view on both sides of sea and moutains. The management should try to keep everything in a good condition and pay attention to details.

My husband and I have travelled extensively throughout the world and we have never come across such a shabby and run down 4 star hotel. The category of the 4 star is misleading as this hotel does not represent this. This hotel is definitely not up to standard and requires to be reviewed urgently. The first impression was that the...
