Salou, Bus Plana review

A month ago I travelled with my family to Salou. We landed in Reus Airport, we had booked our transfer with Bus Plana (the local buses company) so when we went out of the airport we saw that the shared bus was waiting for us. We got in, the bus had air conditioning which was a delight, as outside it was about 32 degrees. They dropped us off right in fron of our hotel. We spent our first day in the beach, when we were heading back to the hotel, we saw a Bus Plana local with a few guides wearing yellow vests, turned out, that they also organized trips, so we decided to book a trip to Camp Nou and downtown Barcelona, because my brother is a real football fan, the trip was fantastic, we had a great time! The next day we went to Montserrat Mountains and to Sitges, althought it was quite hot in Montserrat we still had fun, we also organized this trip with Bus Plana. The third day we stayed at the hotel and we went to the beach, and all of us got sun burned :/. The fourth day we did the trip of Gaudi Route and the Magic Fountain Show with Bus Plana, it only costs 24.95€ adults (admission to the Holy Family included) it also included a tour guide that was very friendly and described all the monuments in detail. I specially liked the Magic Fountain Show as it was very colourful and nice. The last day we went to La Roca Village, it's an outlet where you can get clothes of a lot of brands in very economic prices! At the end, we decided that we had had such a great time, that we would try to come back next year, so hopefuly we'll spend another week there.

Thank you for this review. We are going in October and plan on using Plana as our return transfer. We are now planning to use them for our excursions too!

Do they go to Portaventura, do you know?

yes they go to the theme park, and they run up to and after midnight from there. We always use them for our excursions. They are far cheaper than the holiday rep ones and just as good.

very good and very easy bus service.

Our family used Bus Plana for a couple of trips and I really liked it, the guide was very friendly, the coach was air-conditioned and comfortable and the whole trip was well-organized. Unlike in some other trips we didn't have any problem with finding the pickup spots and so.

Does Bus Plana drop you off at your hotel as what I would expect a 'shuttle service' type thing would do? Or is it more of a public bus type thing with certain stops and you have to find your hotel from there?

I'm staying at the Villa Marina Club if that helps.
