I think that the best way to get to the hotel from Barcelona airport is by PLANA bus. You can board the bus at Terminal 1, and in Salou it stops in front of the hotel - nice and easy! Round trips costs EUR 27, and there is 1 bus per hour on average. As to the hotel, we could never have been dissatisfied, since the receptionist Monica gave us an apartment with front sea view. Thank you so much, you were an absolute angel, the view was excellent and the impression about the hotel therefore the very best!
The apartment itself was also very nice, thoughtfully furnished and boasted some very useful details, including sanitary bags and kitchen utensils (no coffee or tea maker, though). As we visited in October, at the end of the season, we had no problems with sunbeds or long lines at the restaurant, even though the manager and waiters tend to show you to the table, which is not always convenient, as you are robbed of choice... and there are never tables for three at the window, you are doomed to sit in the middle of the restaurant. I imagine that the system is useful during the high season when the place is probably overcrowded, and less so later, but there is little you can change. My husband once tried to ask for another table and was not exactly refused, but the manager was not quite forthcoming, to put it mildly. Yet it was the only incident of the kind, as in general the staff were extremely helpful and smiley, so it probably doesn't count.:)
Anyway, the food was superb, standard for breakfast, but a real feast for both the lunch and dinner. In 9 days we had seafood nights twice and were over the moon!
The pool was thoroughly enjoyable, with massage nozzles and palm-trees around, and there is a pleasant opportunity to visit the hotel's own spa center until 2 p.m. free of charge, if the weather is less favorable.
Kids entertainment was also satisfying thanks to Rose who had nice ways with the kids, and there were some decent shows in the evenings, including two great flamenco nights.
All in all it was a great holiday and no doubt whatsoever about going back. Thanks a million to the staff!
