Princep Cambrils Hotel has its own unique style and feel to it. In a tourist area filled with large hotels, some of which are only open in the summer months, this 24 bedroom town centre location offers something very different. Located right in the heart of the port area of Cambrils, Princep Cambrils offers the opportunity to be located close to some of the town's best restaurants, the marina and the beach. It is a family run business that is open for most of the year, closing only for 1 month over the Christmas period.
