had an enjoyable stay here,rooms were good with comfortable beds,lovely shower,nice balcony overlooking the sea,fridge and safety deposit available for a small charge,pool area is good with sections for adults,children and toddlers.pool does not get much sun till about 1 in afternoon so might want to head out and about in morning.bar area is fine with cheap prices.food I found very good but for fussy eaters might struggle.entertainment at night starts with bingo with good prizes,then mini disco for kids,then a themed show.hotel is good base to get out and explore the area.make use of plans buses or train bus which takes you anywhere for a few Euros,beaches were superb,lovely sand and very clean,town is packed with restaurants,bars and shops.portaventura was the highlight,huge theme park with some of the best and scary rides I have ever seen,if you have young kids sesame street is a must,so much fun.aqua parks not great but worth a visit.overall ideal base hotel wise to explore all areas.had a great and enjoyable holiday.

Just returned from a weeks stay at the Playa Park in Salou. Overall the hotel was very good. Could not complain about the rooms - clean and comfortable with modern bathrooms. We paid 25 euros to hire a fridge for the week which included some drinks already in there. Only negative came from my parents whose room overlooked where the entertainment was and it could be extremely noisy until after midnight. Food was good but perhaps there could have been more options geared towards children as my seven year old had pasta every night! Dining room could get very busy at times- be prepared to push in as the other nationalities there have no hesitation in doing so! Also we were constantly astonished at how much food some people piled on their plates, in particular the red watermelon! Pool area was nice, didn't seem to be any issue with getting a sunbed at any time of the day. Location was good- very close to a couple of small beautiful beaches and a 15 minute walk to Salou centre. Really enjoyed Salou itself, it is very lively with lots to see and do! Definitely worth taking the boat along to the quieter and relaxed Cambrils and also visiting bustling Barcelona. Excellent bus service in Salou which passes near the hotel. Entertainment team worked extremely hard but other staff in the hotel could be quite abrupt. All in all, a good hotel in a good location, would definitely return.

Dear Client:

First of all thank you have dedicated a minute of your time to share your experience with us.
Your comments help us to improve our services and to recognize if our work is well done.

Concerning the animation shows and music, we must kept the schedules but what we can offer you for the next time, always subject to availability, rooms not geared towards that area. And about food towards children, we will take into account your comments about more options for future.

It is a satisfaction for us that your stay has been pleasant and Salou, as a turistic destination had covered your expectations.

We have not long got back after staying a week (21- 28 July), in Salou at this hotel, we had read a couple reports giving negative reviews about the staff and the food. I can honestly state the hotel staff are fine and make every effort to communicate with the different european visitors. The food was really nice, well cooked and varied. (Compliments to the catering and waitressing staff)
The rooms were cleaned every day and are decent for the star rating, the only minor gripe, the bed was hard and the TV viewing is limited no Sky Sports News, apart from that great.

The hotel is just a short walk from the beach of the main high street with lots of places to eat and drink and even do some shopping if required.

Would definately revisit this hotel again

2nd year in a row to this hotel, after several visits over the last decade, we cannot recomend it highly enough, even after 1 year reception/restaurant and barstaff all remembered us, greeted by very friendly and helpful reception and room was ready as promised by 12 noon.
The restaurant staff and food was excellent, all staff so friendly and excellent selections every night, particular mention for Paula, and Rodrigues, but only as we cannot remember other names, we met up with 2 families from last year, from wales and NI, on our last night we were served with complimentary champagne sangria from the restaurant staff, an extremely nice gesture.
The bar staff, Jose, jesus, Rafael, Mikael and others whose names escape me now, were amonst the most friendly we have come across, most nights complimentary shots or jugs of sangria appeared on the table, in fairness we (the welsh and irish) spent shedloads on alcohol!!!! needed to get home for a rest, 2 to 3am every night so for pensioners didnt do bad!!
And finally to Tibo/Sylvia and the annimation team, well done, we had so much fun, came away with a nasty "habit" but worth it, was very hard for them to get the russians involved, well done to all the team. Sylvia - still cant get the image of those suspenders out of my mind!!!!!!!!!
Will definitely be going back in 2016 and meet up with the welsh and Irish once again, this hotel is highly recommended

Room Tip: Front of hotel is quieter, but we had a room over the pool/entertainment and did not have any noise...

7-14th July - Arrived at the hotel at 11.00am via private transfer (15 minutes from Reus Airport) - reception staff very friendly and helpful with good english. We had two rooms which were ready at 12.00 midday and we were impressed. Very clean with nice views. Beds made and towels changed every day. Our room how two double beds, the kids got two singles just down the hall. Bed and breakfast was our choice and there was everything you could think of. Fresh fruit to a full english every day. The entertainment was fun in the evenings. It is a steep 15 walk down to the beach and takes a bit long uphill on the way back! All the staff could speak some english and if they didn't understand they would ask a colleague to help. Overall I would definately recommend this hotel.

Just got home after a 2 week stay at playa park and I can't fault this hotel. Rooms are cleaned well everyday the food is good the staff are great and the hotel is located 2 mins away from an excellent beach. I read some of the bad reviews on here before I left and I disagree with them. First off the staff are excellent always make you feel welcome the entertainment team do an excellent job of keeping every guest involved. I found many of the games and shows brought all different nationalities together especially quiz night. Yes the Russians can be a pain in the dinner hall but not all of them we certainly found some of them up for a laugh. This hotel is situated on top of a hill but my mother is 60 and done it twice daily with no problems. There is a lot of stairs down to the beach but IT IS WELL WORTH IT I have never had so much fun in the sea ever as the waves are huge and the water is warm. We got boogie boards from the shop across from the hotel and spent many days down there. The pool is shaded until about noon but we found if you go to the beach in the morning then the pool you get the best of both worlds. The hotel prices for drinks is about average and the same price as many of the bars but you get the added bonus of the entertainment. I travelled with my mum my husband and three boys of 9, 7 and 12 and we all had a ball. If we decide to return to salou playa park is where we will stay. Thought I would also give you some tips for saving money while in salou before you go to port adventura buy the chuppa chup sweets from the shop next to oasis park hotel there is a sign outside we saved 100 euros for 5 of us to enter the park. You need to buy 3 bags per person each bag costs 1.50 and buy kids adult tickets with the packets it's cheaper than a kids ticket. We got a taxi to the park coming in at around 8 euros cheaper than the bus which is 3 euros each. You also save 30% off costa caribe water park if you take your port adventura tickets to the special offer box before you leave the park however you will have to pay for them there and then. For aqua polis get a taxi and the driver will have discount tickets with 3 euros off per person not much but still a saving. Salou is great but the hotel made our holiday this year we have never spent so much time in a hotel while on holiday so they are doing something right.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the main pool as you will also get sea views if you can get the 7th floor.
