Don't stay here, don't!! it is filthy and full of maggots. There is a strip club nearby and it is not an area for children. All I saw was old seedy men here that was going to the nearby strip bar. Up and down the main strip was Colombian hookers and constant police sirens. Just don't. The most scariest place... More

Thanks to a lovely helpful waiter in restaurant who noticed us as he probably watches daily lost looking holiday makers! we got a cab costing 15 euro got our keys... More

Because of work commitments, we had 9 days to book a holiday, none was available in that time, so we had booked everything separately. This was the only hotel we could find in this region in our price range. I'm am really not fussy at all. Firstly you have to pay a deposit to stay at these apartments, when we... More

There’s no reception in this very basic 2 star hotel as its down street! Security men roam building at night to check for people shining lasers & they also keep an eye on rowdiness & litter throwing. The small pool is ok & is open from 9am-7pm; no excess sun cream to be worn whilst swimming. The club underneath the... More

I booked this apartment and then read the reviews, so was expecting the worst. It wasn't nearly as bad as we expected but then we knew that this was a "no frills" apartment. Positives: - location was excellent for busses to Cambrils, Reus, Barcelona and Tarragona. - very short walk to shops, restaurants and beautiful beaches - safe and friendly... More

I was there last week and had the same experiences as many other reviewers on here.. We got into Salou around 9.30pm and were dropped off at a crowded reception with noise from a local disco blaring away in the background and got in the qeue to get our keys. We were in Arquus 4. Nobody had told us either... More

Really terrible place for Thomas Cook to have put two people who clearly stated we want 'somewhere quieter'. If this was their version of quiet I hate to think what noisy is. We were in Arquus IV. The rooms were basic, which didn't bother us too much. However there was no air -con, and also we had no light in... More

We were told by Thomas Cook that Arquus was in a lovely quiet area of Salou right near the beach. What a joke! The five apartments they own are on the main strip above bars and clubs. This is a place for people who want to party all night and sleep all day (young teenagers or Brits abroad types). We... More
