“Okay, but not great”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We stayed here for 6 days on a half board basis.

Breakfast and evening meals had a good range, but became repetative. The Salou area is a little run down and very british. A good slection of shops for souveniers and replica goods.

Drive to Barcelona was a little long, but Barcelona is amazing and worth the trip.

Our room was okay, a little dated, fairly clean.

I am 15 and went to the Jaime I Hotel in August with my friend and her family. Before we went we checked tripadvisor and ended up feeling very aprehensive because of all the negative reviews we came across. Let me tell you, the reviews on here are absolute rubbish. I am very picky about cleanliness of rooms, service and food and all of these things were fantastic. The food is monotonous yet very nice and the cleanliness of rooms is faultless, with the maids coming in everyday to clean and the bathrooms was amazing. Yes, it is loud in the evening but what do you expect from a holiday hotel? It is in a brilliant location, close to the beach and restaurants. The only downside is that there are a lot of people from different countires and it is definitely not an English hotel, however this did not affect us at all. Please, do not be put off by the awful reviews on here, they are not accurate about this brilliant hotel.

Room Tip: Higher Rooms have less noise and out of the central block (there are 3) is much quieter.

stayed in this hotel for our honeymoon,was slightly worried after reading the reviews.

yes the bar staff are rude and yes hotel and bar are very expensive.use local shops to buy water a lot cheaper.

the food has excellent range to choose from some times cold but ive never stayed in a hotel h/b and all inclusive where the food has been piping hot all of the time.

the hotel does have more foreign guests than brittish but you are abroad not blackpool.

the hotel is in a great location.
rooms were cleaned daily and lots of space.
hotel itself was pretty clean.

indoor pool is excellent only 1 euro 50 cent for an hour.

hotel is cheap and cheerful we are even considering going back with our daughter next year.due to price we paid and location.
i would say salou as a whole is more for families parks on beech,arcades.
lucky lucky asda price men do pester you but most destinations i've visited had them.
salou fountains on a Friday and Saturday at 9 are a must.
so is Aquopolis the water park and dolphins included.it's only 2 euros and 45 cents on local bus to get there,which you catch opposite to mcdonlds.food is expensive so take your own lunch.
buses from Reus airport to Salou are really cheap at just under 6 euros.leaving from stand 2.
hotel on a whole good.was impressed for money we paid.would go back due to location and price.had odd niggles.

Well, where to start..... If your looking for a holiday with ignorant people, terrible food, horrendous facilities and shocking value for money then Hotel Jaime 1 is for you.

We arrived at 10pm on Saturday night and were given little lunch bags as we had checked in after dinner. This consisted of warm sandwiches, a warm bottle of water and some kind of fruit. 'Great start to our 'Jaime 1' experience.

When we got to our building we walked through a dimly lit lobby which to be honest, gave you the creeps, there was no lighting anywhere and you could barely see the next step in front of you. Up the lift onto the 4th floor where our room was. Clean, basic are all the only positives I have about this place.

Meal times, well where do i start?? "Survival of the fittest" "Hunger games" is the only way to describe this place. The canteen is like something out of a 1980's high school. Tables and chairs everywhere with 3 main serving areas. The breakfast had spaghetti included in the buffet, I mean "Spaghetti, FOR BREAKFAST" what is wrong with these people??? If you have a balanced diet and are careful with what you eat, then your snookered. Sausages, chips, beans, bacon, bolied eggs (with greeny blue yolks inside) ALL GREASY may i add are all you've got. Dinner doesnt get much better people...... You honestly need a crash helmet, bullet proof vest, snake bite kit and a compass in this place. People push you, nudge you. We had one guy, cough in our faces as we were eating. I have never seen so many Russians and Germans in one place, they are the rudes, most ignorant people on the face of this earth....

I'm running out of time on my lunch hour here but listen, Do not go to this place, it is a 'Pure Dive', honestly. Save your cash, pay a little bit more and look for something elsewhere..... If you decide to go to this place AFTER reading this review then you are a fool!!

Best thing about this hotel, was checking out!!!

Awful hotel! Dirty toilets everywhere with no toilet roll in any of them, grounds around the hotel full of empty cans and bottles, lobby's pitch black so very unnerving if your walking to your room on your own but worse of all is the filthy canteen! Flies everywhere, food not cooked properly, full of rude Spaniards who barge past you constantly not caring that your holding hot drinks. The place is a joke so please don't ruin your holiday by wasting good money going to this hotel! You will hate it! In all my times abroad I have never once had to complain about a hotel until now! Pick somewhere else and don't throw hard earned money away! It's a filthy filthy disgusting hotel that dosent cater in the slightest for English speaking people! Don't go!!!!

Just stayed here for 1wk half board the hotel is in a good location but you have to walk pass the lucky lucky men to get to the sea front ,and after a while they do get to you a bit. The rooms where clean 2 plugs,pool cold ,entertainment was in spanish , the food well if you don't mind chips and pasta for breakfast well thats fine and all the other food as well ,evening meal was like a rugby scrum for a clean table and plate and food there was not much room to sit and eat in comfort if you got to your table you could not get back out for pudding unless you have to push your way out .the pool was very cold but plenty of sun beds thou don't know wot it would be like in the summer months over all if you don't mind a cheap holiday then thats fine.
