On arrival in early hours was shocked to be told had to wait till 1pm for check in, but after explaining about not knowing this, they did after half hour check us into an alternative room, so was happy.
FOOD...was very very basic, pizza and chips seem to be the fav on the menu. no fruit at breakfast, no a big variety, and always empty trays. The tables were not really dressed well, very basic, and often only dirty tables free, had to wait to for clearing of them. Flys in the dinning room were an issue, and deserts always looking sloppy and warm. To be fair, not the greatest. pancakes proberbly the only pro.
STAFF... were friendly and welcoming although some very little english, they still aim to please. There was one man behind the pool bar, who could be arrogant, and un friendly, needs to learn to smile.
ROOMS...ours was in the milo, very quiet, but very dated rooms, could do with modernising, but clean and comfortable. was no kettle or dryer, so take with you. the maids again were lovely.
ENTERTAINMENT... it was more spanish based, and didnt really cater for the english, was quite poor to be fair, but saying that, the atmosphere because it wasnt an all brittish hotel, made this more holiday feeling. And we enjoyed a couple of nights in the hotel.
POOL... thankfully, we never experienced any running to get sun loungers, there was plenty to go round, although the pools could be very shady. the life guard never seems to move from his chair, and dont see how he could possibly safley watch the pools, so be cautious with children, as the life guard wasnt much use.
SUMMERY.... we went on a very low budget half board holiday with kids, for what we paid, we got what we got, so couldnt expect more. this is not the best hotel in salou, but not the worst either. the food was the main issue, but eating out is easily done in salou.
BE AWARE... of all hidden extras ie/ safe, aircon, meals, wifi, remote, pool, gym, golf ect
