Reviewed October 26, 2013

Just back from a wonderful week at Pierre & Vacances. Lovely apartments, very secure and not far from the main shops and restaurants. Well equipped. As other reviews its a steep hill if you are in one of the back blocks. We were in block 9 which was situated to the left of the reception building and wasn't too bad. Would definitely stay here again. The staff in reception were great. We were late for check in but the person on the 24 hours phone number spoke me through exactly what we needed to do. We also paid an extra 20 euro to extended check out to 6pm because we had a late flight. Thanks for a great holiday.

Just returned from these apartments and found them to have everything we needed. 2 bedrooms large lounge, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, large patio, lcd tv with BBC channels very clean and set in nice grounds. Staff very friendly and helpful we got out theme park tickets from the reception at 54 euros for 2 days much cheaper than the gate price of 79 euros. located in a nice quiet area with just a ten minute walk to shops and bars. Nice pool area. would recomend to anyone who likes a good independant holiday in a quiet location. We got a private taxi from Reus airport for 30 euros which was great value and much easier than getting the coaches. Would book again

These apartments are extremely spacious and are very clean. There is everything you could want apart from a kettle. The grounds are well kept and the apartments are very secure. The pool area is very pretty however as mentioned before there are not a lot of sunbeds. It is in a very quiet area, however close enough to walk to all the bars and restaurants. The only downside I would say is that if you are not extremely careful and meticulously clean you will be visited by a ants, which we thought surprising as we were on the fourth floor.

Dear Client,

Thanks so much for your opinion. we have scheduled an ants treatment more effective even stronger than this year. We'll try to reduce problems with ants but we must keep in mind that we are in the forest. We hope to see you again in our resort.

Best regards,

Raúl Casalini, Director Pierre & Vacances Salou

Stayed here for 2 weeks with my wife and 3 kids.
The apartment was very well equipped as described in previous reviews.
The pool area had a dozen or so loungers but was never and issue getting one.
The complex felt very safe with security on site each night.The room also had a safe at additional cost.
The staff were very nice and didn't have too many issues communicating.Our room also had bed covers changed once and towels atleast 3 times.
The complex doesn't do food or entertainment which I didn't mind as having young kids we could relax in the evening with no noisy bar or people.
I would recommend here if you want to stay away from the main tourist area with its noisy streets and hotels.Would be a nice relaxing break here.Although the blocks near the entrance is recommended as we stayed in block 6 and it was an up hill trek each evening.
Oh and ants were a slight issue on the second week but I haven't stayed anywhere in Spain where they're not an issue.

Exactly what the pictures are like on the website. New, clean and very spacious apartments. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom room with sofa bed in living room. Large dining table in dining room and large table in balcony. Fully equipped kitchen. Full sized fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, full sized hob and oven and coffee maker. Towels changed once in our 5 night stay, sheets not changed. Air con was good and we loved the shutters on windows as we could make the room completely dark and kids didn't know if it was morning or not!
Downside ( in my opinion) was the terrace around the pool, I didn't like the grass as ants and flies bothered us when sunbathing. Pool was excellent as it has easy access with roman steps. Only about a dozen sun loungers which we thought would be a problem as we need six but it was never an issue. Apartments were situated on a hill so if you have walking difficulties you would want to be block A or B. Supermarket across the road to the left of gates. About 10 minute walk to Main Street and a further 5 minutes you will be on the beach. Garage below each apartment. Childrens play area not very big but enough to spend a few minutes before bedtime in. Reus airport 15 mins away.

Room Tip: Room in reception block to avoid the steep hill

We took our 2 children (7 and 4) here and had a great week. The apartment has everything you need and is in a great location - far enough away from the noise but just a short walk into the centre of the town. To walk to the main road where all the bars and restaurants were took less than 5 minutes and 10-15 minutes to walk to the beach.

I have read reviews about not being able to have inflatables in the pool but we took them and had no issues.

There are some comments about noise but we found it to be nice and quiet and that was in August.

There are some comments about there being no restaurant or bar on the site but for me that is a great advantage as you do not get the associated noise. If you require these facilities you only need to cross the road and directly opposite are a few bars, restaurants and a supermarket.

Some people have criticised this accomodation for their inability to communicate with guests. We found their English to be exceptional and even when we spoke to them in Spanish they took the time to try to understand us and were really helpful.

I have already recommended this accomodation to friends who are planning a trip next year and we have already been on their website to look for other locations in Spain for next year.

Room Tip: Block 9, room 101 is close to the main entrance and the balcony overlooks the pool.

Very very good! It's in a perfect location with the ease of your own apartment with anything you need by reception, your own car park secure under your apartment. A trip to the supermarket to get all our food supplies then to the apartment and it was perfect! Definitely Reccomend over any hotel! You have the piece of mind to do as you please.
