My wife and I stayed here after booking a weeks break in October with Thomas Cook.
Only 20 mins transfer from Reus airport. Had a bit of a wait (2 hrs) before we could check in. No problem. Had a drink in the bar. Left our luggage in a storeroom in the basement. This requires a bit of a knack to get the lift to go to the basement using a swipecard. If you cannot get this to work, use the stairs!! Reception staff not very helpful in this regard! This was my only complaint from what was on the whole a nice break in Salou.
We went on a half board basis, and I must say the food was of a good standard. Very busy at breakfast, wide and varied selection of food.
Evening meals of a good standard, again variety of choice good. I certainly did not go hungry and did not feel the need to eat elsewhere. My wife does not eat meat but does eat fish and had no trouble.
We paid for a double room and ended up getting two kingsize beds in the room!
The room was of good quality and clean with ensuite. The balcony was average, overlooking the two swimming pools, but we did not use it. Be aware that it can get very noisy on a Saturday night because of the nightclub, and we did struggle to sleep. All other nights were quiet and we managed to get a good nights sleep. The bar was good with entertainment most nights. One spanish gentleman was very good at entertaining the children every evening and also gave the adults a lesson in spanish dance one evening!!
Overall a nice 3 star hotel in which to have a week in Salou. Only 10 minutes stroll from the centre of town and beach. Plenty of buses (Plana) that will take you to Barcelona, Tarragona, Reus and other places of interest. We would highly recommend.
