This was our first time to Salou,the hotel has a great position between the prom and Port Aventura/train station.When we arrived we unpacked to streaming sunshine,our room had a few faults,jammed safe,no locking balcony doors,sink plug that wouldnt hold water,overheating hairdryer but as soon as the maintainance guy started at 6pm we were all sorted.Reception staff are very helpfull and friendly,animation staff work hard especcially as there are only 2 of them and do mainly audience participation shows although one night he brings in some friends and the do an oscars show which was good,unfortunately on the saturday they brough in an act which we thought would do an international show but no it was all in spanish.Dinner is at 7pm which is later than some hotels some staff are very friendly especcially the 2nd manageress who works very hard,unfortunately for a 4 star the food lets the hotel down.the chef at the top kept on making omlettes and eggs at breakfast time instead of making them on request which would have been better as the time you got them they were cold and sometimes they were very slow at replenishing empty dishes.Dinner had a few nice dishes but less for kids and the obvious favourite of meatballs always ran out quick another thing a fly/insect uv light in the restaurant would be good as there were numerous flys in there.They guy who worked in the kingdom of the pint was very pleasant and had great english Overall Salou has a great beach front with plenty of playparks and a wonderful fountain spectacle at night,Barcelona by train cost us (2 adults 1 child) 46 euros return which is good value,Port Aventura is a great park on par with disneyland paris but with better rides and perhaps with a little less magic.It annoys me because a hotel like this could be a great hotel with a little more attention to detail.Would i go back yes Salou is nice at that time of year just before our hard winter,whether i would try another hotel,im not sure.
