Myself and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel from 7th September to 14th September. We were quite worried about the hotel as we had been reading reviews before we went.
Firstly, we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff at the reception. We were quite impressed with the appearance of the hotel as the reception area was spotless. When we booked the hotel we had requested a middle floor pool view room, which unfortunately we did not get. Everything about the hotel was going very well until we opened the door to our hotel room which was on the 5th floor. We were very disappointed with our room as it was very small and myself and my boyfriend could not move around the room without having to move out of each others way. We had looked at a layout of the hotel and discovered that we had the smallest room in the hotel. It was in the very centre of the hotel where both sides of the hotel meets and was also right next to the stairs which did get very noisy at times, but that did not bother us too much. The balcony was probably the most pathetic balcony I've seen in my life as myself and my boyfriend could not sit on it together without our knees touching. However we didn't want this to ruin our holiday, until about 2 days into our holiday a maid approached us and asked if we were both staying in the room as she said she had only been providing towels for one person as the hotel room is a single room. This left me and my boyfriend feeling very upset because we felt we had paid alot of money for a hotel room which did not in actual fact cost the price we had paid. Aside from this, the hotel room was cleaned everyday to a very high standard and clean towels were provided everyday.
We were very impressed with the bathroom as we were expecting a shower of very poor quality when actually it was probably one of the best showers I've ever used!
The food at the hotel was of good quality and there was something available to suit everyone's needs. However we did feel that the food did become quite repetitive and we felt that the breakfast options were boring and so for the last two days of our holiday we had breakfast at uncle sams which was €4 for a full English breakfast. The restaurant staff were a mixture of friendly and grumpy people. Some of them looked as if they did not want to be there and it was impossible to get a smile out of them. But others were very friendly and were willing to help with anything.
Before we got to the hotel we were worried about the pool area as on the pictures the pool looked very small and in the shade. But we were very surprised to see a brand new pool when we got there. Although we did only go in the pool 3 times because it was in the shade alot and so the water was very cold. There were limited sun loungers at the hotel and the area was in the shade for the majority of the day so we didn't bother staying at the hotel, instead we went to the beach and hired two sun loungers which cost €4 each for the whole day which we thought was good.
We cannot comment on the night time entertainment at the hotel because we did not stay at the hotel for the entertainment. But there did seem to be something going on every night and when we got back to the hotel there was quite a big crowd watching so it couldn't have been too bad. But, if you're like me and you don't like to stay at the hotel then I strongly recommend Robin Hood which is a lovely English pub which we went to every night and they always had good entertainment!
The best thing about this hotel by far is its location, it's very close to the small beach and only a 5/10 minute walk from the main beach!
Overall, we did like this hotel but we feel that our stay would have been better had we been given a better room. We probably won't be returning to this hotel as we would like to stay in the sister hotel 4R Salou Park, as the hotel looks very nice and the pool is in constant sunlight!!
