“Great Trip”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Was recently in the marinada for a week, thought it was great spotlessly clean, staff very friendly and helpful, and the food was great. Would go again. the only problem i had were the beds i have a bad back and i thought they were very poor. The marinada apts across the road are very good also and the rooms are a bit bigger, which is important when you have teenagers sharing.

Great Hotel, very clean and our room had 3 single beds with plenty of space. Bathroom and shower were spotless and the maids were very regular and thorough with cleanliness. Pool area was great, plenty of space and on Monday there is 'Inflatable day' where the hotel puts out inflatable slides etc in the pool - kids loved it. Food was good and there was good selection in the buffets. Breakfast was especially good - loads of choices and replenished often. A short walk to the main town and easy to organise tours to Barcelona etc. Staff were very helpful and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Salou. Very good 3 star Hotel.

Room Tip: If you are doing a bus tour up to Barcelona and Nou Camp it is cheaper to book while in Salou, inste...

Booked this hotel (full board) at short notice via Ryanaire to get a little bit of summer. Cautious after some reviews but had a wonderful time & would thoroughly recommend it. Yes there were a lot of Spanish guests, but that was a bonus. Most of the staff spoke good english, but try using any spanish you know as it appears to be appreciated & is only what we expect in the uk! The hotel was spotless, the food excellent, & the staff very pleasant & helpful. Packed lunches were provided if preferred. The beds are typical spanish ones & a bit on the hard side but ok & when we asked for extra pillows they were there almost immediatly. The pool was clean & had a lifeguard with plenty of sunbeds & umbrellas. It is only a short walk to the beaches, shops, & buses to port aventura. Salou itself has lovely (although busy) beaches & a very pleasant promenade with lots of fountains, including 2 musical ones that perform in the evening(the best one is at the harbour end of the promenade) Barcelona is possible to get to by train or coach for a day trip. The weather was wonderful!

Room Tip: Rooms on the pool side are probably quieter as the front of the hotel is on the road, although the r...

14 ladies went away for a birthday celebration. We have been to Salou a few times before and this is the best hotel we have stayed in. It is very clean, pool was lovely with plenty of sunbeds and the bar staff were extremely accomodating. Breakfast was more than adequate, although hours could be extended! The location is great, short walk to beach, bars and clubs. We will be rebooking for next year.

Room Tip: We got interconnecting rooms, which was fab. Make sure you are not in rooms above the kitchens, 3 of...

I came here with my girlfriend and really enjoyed staying at the marinada ! The rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels and cleaned to a very good standard. From looking at another review on here we were not expecting much with the food, but always found something nice to eat and very much enjoyed it. Breakfast was not great but tea time was always different, we just went out for a breakfast to jacks bar on the same road. Everything is close by too. The only thing we could fault was we were probably the only English in the hotel but it's Spain we are on holiday so we weren't to fussed. Go to the rovers return bar , friendly English bar just down the road. Over all great hotel. Jason and Lisa 22 year old couple.

I stayed in the hotel Marinada for 3 nights in June 2012. I was on a short break with a gang of fortysomething lads just to catch some sun and enjoy a few beers and lazy days by the pool.
The hotel Marinada was perfect.
It's a quiet family oriented hotel. The pool and poolside are good. There were no louts or noisy neighbours. A most enjoyable spot. Highly recommended.

Myself, husband and our 4 year old Daughter stayed here for 7 nights last week. can't fault the hotel at all except it is really not for English speaking guests! the reception staff especially have very poor English, we struggled all week trying to get any information from them, in the end we just gave up! Couldn't make use of the mini club either as no other kids spoke English so our daughter felt lonely the whole week really as she struggled to make friends with the language barrier!!!
Now for the positives......................

The food is really good for a 3 star hotel, especially breakfast. alot of choice from different breads, cereals, fresh fruit, biscuits,croissants, buns and hot food. the fried eggs were lovely and the beans didn't taste cheap. Don't know what the tea was like but the coffee wasn't great.
lunch and dinner was fine too, the wine is awful though! u can taste why its only 5 euro a bottle!the paella on a Sunday was beautiful. plenty of choice for dessert too. we requested a picnic lunch to take with us for the 2 days we went to Portaventura and it was lovely,
rooms basic but spotless and the housekeepers were in everyday! hard workers.
The hotel is centrally situated and there is lots to do and see in and around Salou, the beach is only a 10 minute walk away.
All in all we had a lovely holiday, the Marinada is a great hotel, but not if you have English speaking kids! i would def stay here again though if it was just me and my Husband!

Room Tip: The bus to portaventura is every 30 mins and leaves from just around the corner from hotel. it is on...
