“Nice hotel on the main promenade in Salou”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We had a little bit of a problem checking in ( probably our mistake), but the kind lady at the reception did her best to provide us with a double (not single) room overlooking the sea. We had already parked in the tiny underground car park but were promptly told to move our car (no reservation up front - should we have known that in advance???) and we parked for the four days of our stay in one of the staff car parking bays.
Our room was simple and rather small but adequate. I always miss tea/coffee making facilities in continental hotels... The view over the beach was pleasant - but be warned that the local authorities have a tendency to flatten/clean (?) the beach at some ungodly hour of the morning and I awoke thinking that World War 3 had broken out with heavy artillery machinery lumbering past our balcony.
Breakfast was sufficient if rather repetitive. It was nice to be able to get up late and still eat at 10:30 +.
Don't expect much from the swimming pool - I have seen bigger bath tubs!
What we liked was the proximity to most of the facilities in Salou - I could have a good meal, drink the odd glass of wine or two and stagger back to the hotel via the beach/promenade.
Would we return? If coming this way - probably.

Room Tip: Insist on a room on one of the upper floors overlooking the beach

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2010

We stayed at the Casablanca Playa just by chance, over the Easter weekend and thought it was very good. We thought the staff were very nice and helpful, spoke some English. Breakfast good and plentiful, good choice. We managed to get a sea view room which was good, very clean and all you need for a short break.

We have just booked again to go in August.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2009

The hotel is located just 2 minutes walk from the main promenade so its very convenient. This part of the beach is not overcrowded so you have all comfort by mornings on the beach and by evenings on the promenade.
A bus stop is very close so it's easy to get to Port Aventura and Costa Carribea (don't use a special tram - it's a wastу of time and money!).

Nothing special about the staff. Just would like to mention that waiters don't speak English at all.

During our stay the hotel was full with aged persons so don't expect to get new friends if you are young.

Rooms are usual, some of them have great view to the seaside. Every room has a balcony. A swimming pool for adults is behind the hotel. This place doesn't get enough sun so water is always very cold.

Well, that's it I think. In general we liked the place.
