We’ve just returned from a short break at this hotel: 4 days all-inclusive. We wanted a cheap break and this is what we got. Although the hotel represents good value for money - we got a very cheap deal - we won’t be rushing back.
We went at the end of the season when the hotel was getting ready to shut down. The all inclusive poolside bar was closed, and the night time entertainment consisted of some old folks ballroom dancing.
Our fourth floor room had been renovated and was absolutely fine, with maids coming in every day to clean and make the beds. However, the rest of the hotel was in need of renovation and looked pretty jaded; but that’s how I’d describe Salou in general.
The food was also ok – no better and no worse than any other hotel-buffet food we’ve had. We ended up eating out quite a lot though: not because there was anything wrong with the food but there’s only so much buffet food you can eat.
It was the first time we’ve done all-inclusive and I don’t think we’ll be doing it again after this experience. The idea of unlimited food and drink seems appealing, but is it really unlimited? We felt like second rate citizens, with the ‘paying’ guests getting the better stuff and us getting the cheap rubbish. For example, some 'paying' guests ordered a jug of sangria. It was made up freshly and served in glasses. When we asked for a jug of sangria, we were refused a jug and had to make do with some pre-prepared rubbish served in plastic cups. We tried various spirits, which were mostly vile and most of which ended up being thrown away.
Therefore, while I can’t say the hotel was brilliant, I can’t say it was awful either. You pay for what you get, and the staff were friendly enough.
One last thing: I’ve come home with twenty two insect bites and do wonder if I got them in the hotel room.
