Aparthotel Best Da Vinci Royal
Ranked #36 of 93 Hotels in Salou
Reviewed September 24, 2013

On the positive side... the studio room was generally fine & what you'd expect for a fairly cheap 3 star hotel. Staff were friendly.

The not so positive... If you don't like firm beds, it may not suit you.
We asked for a quiet room, high up, but got a room on the third floor at the front of the hotel above reception. This meant that coach drop offs/collections were very noisy, and traffic spoiled use of the balcony. We kept the balcony door shut at night because of this, which made the room too hot.

The restaurant & food was disappointing. Reasonable selection but not appetising to us. Quite crowded at times, with very noisy plate collection trolleys.

Have done cheapish 3 star hotels before, and been very pleased. We don't usually write reviews - hate moaners, but feel this is justified..

Room Tip: As stated, not roadside.

Dear customer,

First of all, let me thank you for your having spent the time to write about your experience in our establishment.
Thank you for your positive comments and, about the negative points i can assure that we take note. We apologise if you where uncomfortable with the room and mattress.
On one side, we could have solved the issue of the noises by moving you to another room with a different orientation; on the other hand, the mattress may have also been changed.
Concerning the food, we apologise for the fact you were not happy with it, but you should take into account that it is very difficult for us to satisfy so many nationalities in the hotel.
We will be looking forward to see you on another occasion.

Best regards,

Inés Marzol

Stayed here in July, excellent location to the bars & to the beach. The breakfast buffet each morning was excellent - especially the champagne, pancakes & omelettes. Not much atmosphere around the pool area even though hotel was fully booked so was always easy to get a bed everyday. Rooms were very spacious with air con and kept spotless everyday. Would defo recommend this hotel.

Stayed in March this year with a friend for my first visit to Salou and the famous Portaventura theme park! Only 15 min ride from airport. Hotel is in a great location, near to the bars, excellent promenade and beach and main shopping area with 15 min walk.
Lovely pool area, very spacious room with lounge and kitchenette area, although we opted for half board for about £15 extra each for 4 nights! Good selection of food although was luke warm!
Evening entertainment not our cup of tea so went out every night! Free Wi-Fi was a bonus! Got for a very good price and was well worth the money! Would go back again :)

Well, as my first days of Salou, i believe that nowhere else would be better than here. First of all, this is not a 'royal', 'a+service' hotel. In fact, I believe that it should be renovated in closest time. Most of the furniture is old, from 80-90s stuff. Yet, it might seem incredible, but this makes a person feel at home really. I used this hotel as home, everything and everywhere was always clean and functioning, there was a really wide lobby area, honestly not a good quality of breakfast but a really good quality of dinner, good reception service, helpful and very hospitable personnel, kind waiters and waitresses.they adore when you try to speak even a little spanish, they are really helpful people. If you don't expect too much excellence in decoration, but a good hospitality, i strongly recommend here. Price is really modest .The only thing is that if you come in winter, be prepared to be the only person that is below 60 years old:))) very popular hotel choice this year for elder spanish people here:)) but i even can say old guests are also extremely kind and talkative:) I love Spain! (or Catalunya anyway)

Absolutely loved our holiday to salou. Last week of August. 1 minute to the beach. 2 minutes to the shops. Food good. Pool area always empty so plenty of space. Hotel has free wifi, good service an staff always happy to help. Beach is immaculate. Looky men always hassling for glasses, watches and some other stuff if you know what I mean. Would definitely recommend again. Only negative was hotel was catered for Spanish and Russians. With entertainment etc. however I preferred this as like to enjoy the culture and not be home from home. Hope this helps
