Having just returned from a lovely week at the Salou Pacific, I thought it was right to put a lot of the earlier negative reviews into context. This is not a luxury hotel and you should not expect the standards and amenities of such (unlike previous reviewers). This is a well run cheap set of self catering apartments in a great location. The staff are friendly and helpful and the room we had was clean and wholly adequate. The pool was also clean and well stocked with sun loungers, albeit the beaches are only a few minutes away.
A lot of reviewers have been scathing about the rooms. If you want your towels or bedding changed all you need to do is hand reception your old stuff and they will give you clean ones in return. OK, you do have to make up your own bed though. If you want another toilet roll, just ask at reception and they will give you a new one. All very straight forward. The room is your responsibility to keep clean with a broom and mop handy, but 2 minutes a day keeps you on top of this easily.
The safety deposit boxes are easily available in the reception foyer and are either charged by the day or for the week at a reasonable rate. A little tip though. They come in two sizes so ask for one of the larger ones.
A breakages and good behaviour deposit of 50 Euros is required at check-in as is a couple of Euros for tourist tax. You can have a late check-out extended to 3pm for another 20 Euros.
The only real downside of the hotel is that all the TV channels in the room and the bar are Spanish. Given that the vast majority of guests are British, it would have been nice to have at least one English language TV channel.
Do not stay here if you want luxury, but this is a lovely apart-hotel for the price. I had a great holiday made all the more special by friendly staff and not having false expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by the Salou Pacific given its negative reviews.
