Myself (21), my wife(22 turned 23 on holiday), brother-in-law (16) and sister-in-law (20) stayed at this hotel from 23rd june untill 30th june.
Before we went i sent two emails to the hotel requesting one double bed and then two singles (one email in english one in spanish). I got no reply and unfortunatley on arriving we had two double beds. We did request to change rooms or beds but they said they couldnt do this.
I had read a lot of the reviews of this hotel on here and was worrying slightly, however i found the hotel was what you made of it.
Andrea on reception was very friendly and attentative, however some of the other staff were not so good at english and could come across a little rude.
Our room was average, relativley small with two double beds pushed together. Floors could have done with a good mop but other than that it was clean and tidy.
The hotel was again nice but average. Nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about either.
We never had a problem getting sun beds around the pool, one side was shaded in the morning but by lunch time, had full sun. The pool was quite cold but once in, you got used to it.
Resturant/Food, like most others have said was limited. You could guarentee to have Chips, rice or pasta every day. Breakfast was excellent, and im not usually one for breakfast in hotels. Lunch and Tea time were always very similar foods, however the food itself was tasty enough. The pool bar offered food through the day for all inclusive, toasties, burgers, chips or hot dog.
The entertainment could have been a lot better, it was enough to make us laugh, however not necesarily for good reasons. It was a bit cheep but cheerful.
The bars were okay also, good choices for drinks. 4 cocktails available on All inclusive, others you had to pay for. there were branded alcohol like smirnoff, malibu etc free. Others like Jack Daniels you had to pay for, however if all inclusive got them cheaper. For example Corona was only 1 euro to AI guests.
The location we found was great, right on the beaches, bus stops near by, right between main salou and la penida. A bus from our hotel to main salou was about 1.60 euro at night or 2.30ish through the day.
We wanted to go on a boat trip for my wifes birthday, we seen a poster in the hotel sayin from 10 euros per person. When we eventually found our rep, she had two available, glass bottom for 40 euro per person or Catamaran for 50 euros per person. We asked if we had to book in advance, she said yes or you cant go on one. We asked if we would find it cheaper where the boats were, she said no. SHE WAS WRONG or LYING.
We went into main salou to the boat bay, as soon as we got there we found multiple choices. One lady came straight upto us with her sales pitch, 3 hour boat trip on catamaran, you get to the catamaran by glass bottom boat for free, free drinks on board and a free bbq. we thought oh dear this will cost a lot. But no, she offered it for 30 euros per person, and a sneaky 25 euros for my wife with it being her birthday. so all together we paid 115 Euro when the Rep tried to get 200 off us. The trip was excellent also, definitley reccomended.
We vistied Aquopolis one day, definitley reccomended!! Great Water rides (and i normaly hate water rides) and also amazing Dolphin show, whith the change to get photos with the dolphins. We also visited Portaventura, It was my wife and her brother and sisters first time here however i have been three times before. It has only got better since i last came here.
Overall the hotel doesnt have any bad points in my opinion, especially if you like to do your own thing. However if you plan to stay there pretty much 24/7, id look for a different hotel as i dont think i could have done that at this hotel, Unline other salou hotels i have stayed in.
