We have just returned from 10 nights staying at the Golden Port Salou and Spa. I myself last stayed in Salou 34 years ago with my parents when I was 6 years old and we stayed at the Hotel Augustus Park, near to Camping Sanguli. I took my husband there to see it. I lost my Dad this year, so I especially wanted to go there as I have many happy memories from that holiday. I couldn't remember anything about Salou itself, so it was like going there for the first time. We were impressed with the hotel except for some aspects of the bar. The drinks are quite pricey and there isn't much choice when it comes to lager/beer, however, they do have Happy Hour on cocktails twice a day (although we never went ourselves), so It's not a complaint, just an observation!! The hotel is very clean and well run. The restaurant was never overly busy and we always got a table without delay. The choice of food is good and the staff work hard. We met other English couples who had varying opinions on the food, but I think that the English sometimes expect everything to be the same as they get at home. Our room was bright, modern and always kept clean. We got fresh towels everyday if we wanted them. We went to Llevant beach most days and swam in the sea. We went on 2 of the Tourist Trains, one around Salou and the other to La Pineda. There is a variety of shops, catering for most tastes, and some boutique shops in the Ponient region of Salou if you want to max out on your credit cards!!The weather was hot and sunny most days, with only 2 days of rain and a terrific thunderstorm on our last night. In the evenings, we went to the FUNKY MONKEY bar which was only a short walk from our hotel. Its a great bar, the couple who run it, Andy & Alison, are really lovely people; welcoming and friendly and they have a free quiz everynight with prizes. The drinks are so cheap that we took some money home that we'd normally spend in the evenings. I don't think you'd find cheaper anywhere!! We loved it and never went anywhere else in the 10 nights we were there!! I hope they get to see this review because I feel that they deserve loads of positive feedback from their customers. They make a lovely cheese & onion sandwich too, with English bread and butter and cheddar. They might remember us - our quiz team name was "The Port Salou 4" but we were too tired to join in on the first night. We met lots of people there and had a great laugh!! We have booked again to go next year to the same hotel. I would recommend Salou to anyone - its got something for everyone.
