Okay, first of all, I REALLY must respond to the review below written by Albaman.
You're In Spain for crying out loud! They have siësta's between 2 and 5 PM, which is EXACTLY the reason for the 'late' dinner hours. Honestly, we've been to the South of France and Spain and it is their habit to have dinner after 7PM. If you are not willing to adapt to the country in wich you are celebrating vacation, I suggest that you stay home. You obviously expect that everything and everyone must adapt to YOUR needs. Guess what: The world does NOT revolve around you. Every other guest that was at the hotel during your vacation has payed the same price and expects to enjoy it's vacation to the fullest. They also want their children to enjoy the childrens pool, and have dinner and lunch at the times they prefer, and use the bloody elevator. It's their holiday too and they have just as much the right as you, to use the elevator and not the stairs! It's not because you happen to have a young family at the time, that everything must be adapted to young families, their are young couples, old families with teens, old couples and groups of friends there too and you shall receive the same treatment as all of them do!
Sorry, but I really had to get this off of my chest. Now, my review:
We've been to H10 Europa Park twice now, once in August 2010 and the second time was in September 2011. We'll be returning in July 2012 and can't wait for our holiday!
The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, always helping you with a smile on their face. They're ready to provide you with all the information about Salou and surroundings you need.
Our room was spotless. As a young couple, we didn't need much room for just the 2 of us. Yet both holidays we had a spacious room with lots of room to keep our clothes and other objects in. We had 2 big beds for the 2 of us, just lovely!
A nice balcony with a table and 2 chairs is provided. We had a view of the plaza Europe last time, which was nice. Despite having been placed at street side, we were not bothered by noise or any other sort of trouble. The television receives a lot of channels, we were able to watch the newschannel we're used to in Belgium every night. It was nice to have something familiar like that. Also BBC, Dutch, German, ... channels and others available. Also Disney Channel in both English and Spanish, nice for the little ones when mum and dad are taking a nice bath!
There's a safe in the closet, which we thankfully made use of. It was very nice to know we could place our money, cellphones, camera's and stuff somewhere safe when going to the beach or pool.
The bathroom was provided with a bathtub that was more then big enough! Always nice and hot water available without having to wait for it. They replenished the cups for brushing or teeth every day. There's a hairdryer also, so don't bother bringing your own!
Oh and there's a shower screen to, if you prefer taking a shower over a bath. Towels were clean and soft. There's a note in the bathroom, which very specifically instructs what to do when you want them replenished. If you do NOT wish to use it again, simply put it in the bathtub. The ones in there will be replenished, the other will not. I think it's nice that they think about the environment this way, 'cause indeed not everyone minds using their towels twice.
The room was cleaned every day, it looked spotless. Trashcans were always emptied, clean sheets every other night, clean towels when we asked for them. Floors were cleaned! Someone said they weren't in a review below, but they definitely were! I spilled a bit of lemonade next to the bed, it was all sticky but if you didn't know it was there you wouldn't have noticed. When we returned to the room at night, the stickiness was gone so definitely cleaned! Also no dust or anything on the nightstands, so they really do clean properly. The bathroom looked spotless too.
The food, was delicious! There was lots of choice. Indeed no childrens buffet, but there always was something simple they'd have enjoyed. I'm a very fussy eater, I honestly think your children will like more then I do, and I found at least 2 options to eat everyday.
For breakfast there was lots of cold choices. Bread rolls, toast, French bread, apple sauce, plain yoghurt as well as the danone cups with different fruits. Chocolate breads, croissants, ...
For warm choices there were always at least 2 types of eggs, sometimes 3 (Fried, scrambled, omelets) and there always were hard boiled ones too. There was bacon, sausages, those hash brown potato things, tomatoes, ... Every morning there were pancakes or grilled ham and cheese sandwiches (tosti, croque monsieur or whatever you'd like to call them).
Didn't have lunch, did have dinner every night. Lots of cold salads (pasta ,potatoes, rice, cold vegetables, bread with parmaham, ...
Always a different soup too. For mains there were always french fries or baked potatoes and pasta with bolognese sauce. In One week we had: Meatballs in tomato sauce, lasagna, cannelloni, chicken, (chicken) and normal kebabs, cheeseburgers, roasted ham, baked fish, breaded chicken escallops, pizza, pork ribs, ... Didn't look at vegetarian/fish options much but there were plenty of options. Desserts were great too. there's a freezer with different flavours of ice cream. We had tiramisu, vanilla pudding with cookies in it, lots of pastries and different sorts of cake, chocolate and strawberry mouse, ... I don't even remember half of the choices, there were so many. One thing is for sure, it's impossible not to find something to your liking, or you'd have to be trying really hard not to find something...
The pool looks small on pictures but it's big enough for everyone! Enough sun loungers too and very comfortable ones. Some umbrella's yet I don't get why you'd want them, you come all the way to Spain for sun and then go hide for it underneath an umbrella?
Anyway, the water's nice and warm, yet refreshing enough, just the perfect temperature. It's clean too, but not too much chlorine or anything.
Didn't see much of the entertainment program, but what we did see was really fun. Acrobats dancing with fire and flamengo dancing.
Location is nice, the boulevard and shoppingstreets aren't too far too walk yet it's far enough not to be bothered by noise or crowdedness. You really must go see the show with the new fountains on the boulevard, it's so wonderfull! Also, at the end of the covered main shopping street when viewing the old fountain, go left. Walk a while and at a certain point you'll find a nice little market on your right. Some nice jewelry for a much lower price then in the big shops in the main shopping street!
We loved it and will be going back this summer. For those who have no good word left about H10 Europa park: Keep in mind that you're paying a 3 star hotel price for a 4 star hotel! If you want the luxury of a 5star hotel, then be willing to pay for it and stop whining!
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone!
