Stayed here for a few nights in October as a short break. It is an 'ok' hotel, there are a number of things that slightly disappointed me and stopped it from being good.
The rooms are of adequate size, clean, comfortable and as you would expect in a typical 3-4* hotel in Spain. I agree with other reviewers when they say that there is a lovely pool area (though the sunloungers look a bit tired and the railings from the reception area had come away due to rusting at the bottom of the stairs). All communal areas of the hotel are also fine and the 'English' pub is good for a bit of atmosphere. Staff are pleasant enough, especially if you try your hand at speaking Spanish to them. The hotel is ideally placed for trains to Barcelona (about €15 rtn), buses to Reus (€2.20 rtn) or walking to Port Aventura.
The downsides though were the noise - we were on the 1st floor of block A which is effectively about the restaurant so at about 7.00am every morning we were woken by what I described as the sounds of a 'barrel rolling competition'. Similarly there is not enough sound proofing so corridor noise can be a problem (though a common Spanish hotel problem I find).
On our arrival, there was a wedding going on in the lounge area and there didn't seem to be enough seating for everyone so it seem a little overcrowded.
Food was not brilliant. There seemed to be a lot of fried food on the hot selection - in fact one night they had Crispy Pancakes (which secretly I was pleased with) but the quality and selection did not seem to be on a par with other 3 star hotels I have stayed in, let alone 4. Breakfast hot selection varied every day but the pastries selection remained the same - luckily we only stayed for 4 nights as I was starting to get a bit fed up with it.
All in all it isn't a bad hotel, but it could do much better. Salou is a nice resort (off season comment - I can't say for full season) and would like to come back but I will be looking to try a different hotel.
