“Average but did the job!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

I stayed in this hotel with my sports team as part of IloveTour Saloufest. The hotel was basic and lacked many services which are normally provided free however the service offered was ok.

Reception staff tried their hardest however their level of English was not up to standard as many other hotels in Salou, they also charged a lockout fee of 1 euro for a lockout which I felt was a bit unneccesary as from my experience these have always been free. At the restaurant there was a man making sure that people were dressed appropriately which was fair enough however he didn’t let us bring in alcohol we had purchased in the hotel bar which I felt was rather stupid. This meant that we had to wait to finish our drinks before we able to enter.
The selection of food at dinner was very repetitive however was always cooked to a good standard and you will not struggle to find something that your taste buds would like. Their were many food stations open as well which meant you did not need to queue very long for food which was great after a long days sports playing. It was buffet and meant you could keep filling up.

Breakfast was between 7am-9am which was pretty short considering the hotel was full however not many people made breakfast. There was a wide selection of both continental and cooked options as well as omlet and fried egg stations. Would highly recommend waking up for breakfast.

The main detraction I found with the hotel was the fact that Wifi was charged at 8 Euro per day! This was extortionate and only available on one device. This meant that I had to choose to either use my phone or laptop. Many bars in Salou have wifi for free and would recommend you use this as we did by the end as well.

Room Tip: Go on the higher floors it will be quieter and make sure that you get to the pool early to get a dec...

budget late deal, ok if you are using hotel as a base, nearby town Tarragona very charming and region where wine is made, easily accesable from hotel via bus or train. If you wish to go to Universal Studios Portaventura for the kids it is excellent value and highly reccomend. Train to Barcelona well worth train journey for a great day out sight seeing the beautiful town and cathedral. Got digi camera nicked when going on the bus there, aparently pick pockets operate in pairs, the camera was unclipped from body while paying bus fare on busy cramped bus, lost some very cool photos and put a dampener on the holiday; one of my children has since passed away so even more sad about the theft.
Stayed here a long time ago so just putting up my review now from my experience. Hotel Jaime I is tacky and only good for a cheapy escape. 'Let's get ready to rumble' was blared out of speakers every morning at about 6am as a sort o tacky wake up call, we wanted to find the plug to sever it after a few days! One of the low points was sitting by the pool and seeing a woman remove a soiled 'nappy' off of a severely disabled adult around the pool area and dumping it near where we were sitting. Gross and not nice for children who were around pool, I am not knocking disabled people as my daughter who has since died of Cystic Fibrosis was in essence, disabled, just not v nice or hygenic. I hated this hotel, sorry but was low budget and the food basic too. Stayed 2006 so it may have brushed up since then.

Wouldn't go back here, place looks more like a prison than a hotel, the view from our room was horrendous.

Room was basic, air conditioning was useless.

The bar man at the pool was sleazy and was overly interested in my pregnant fiance!! Nice!!!!!

If you are going on a lads holiday, this place would be fine to put the head down, it's clean enough but for a nice family or couples holiday, avoid, this place is like hell on earth, the food is shocking and it is overly crowded, your chance of getting a seat at the pool in the summer is slim to none.

The standard of guest wasn't up to much either, full of idiots, but thats not the hotels fault!

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel!!

this hotel is good if ur looking for a budget holiday but don't expect any frills, the food was disgusting, we went all inclusive in this hotel and regretted it! it would be nicer to eat in the local restaurants as the hotel food was inedible particularly the dinner, the breakfast was okay had some fresh omelettes which was the only thing we ate, also the all inclusive menu is not rally all inclusive as it dis includes a lot of items on the menu included branded alcoholic drinks and certain snacks, pointless paying extra for it! the dining area is packed hard to find a table and not worth the wait! the hotel itself was dated, rooms were okay very basic not a lot of room, cleaned every other day clean towels, there was a safe, air conditioning, good for a sleeping base that is it! hotel itself was very large, not badly located easy to get to the local town a few minuits walk and not far to the bus stops for the theme park and no need for taxis if your going out for the evening, all in all i would advise people to spend a little extra money and go to a nicer hotel and enjoy your holiday and definitely dont go hear if u spending alot of time in the hotel or want all inclusive!

Well Jamie 1,was very central to everything the room was cleaned everyday and the food was great,,the staff at reception were very friendly and done their best to help,
although the walls in the apartment were very thin, The hotel facilities were also very good,it had a indoor pool,sauna,jacuzzi,and plenty of stuff for the kids,but i did feel that i was in Russia as the majority of the guest were that,but they seemed o.k

The staff at jaime 1 was very rude.The food was awful nothing much for kids to eat my grandson was unable to take a blow up ball in the pool.
No entertainment in the hotel they was a kids club but did not speak English .
We had to walk to the complex to get your breakfast .
Not value for money at all WORST holiday ever would never return.

prior to arriving we were concerned about the reviews from some people, we needent have worried, these complainers must live in Buckingham Palace and have servents if they found anything truly wrong with holidaying at Jaime I.
The hotel, rooms, pools were impeccably maintained, cleaning was an all day thing, the pools were cleaned before we got up. Aircon is superb but only works with patio doors shut, no point trying to cool down Spain as a whole is there.
never had a problem getting sunbeds for 16 of us, we stayed 2 weeks half board at start of August 2013
Food was superb, 3 large food halls, the back food hall was always near empty, we used that one all the time. Anyone who says its chaos, obviously only stayed in the first hall where it was quite busy. Food had many different varieties based on nationalities and cultures, we tried everything. drinks were readily available in the food halls, you cannot bring in your own but this is normal really, anyway the coffees , teas and fruit juices were free, alcohol was paid for, unless you are all inclusive.
The staff at reception were lovely and spoke good english along with other languages.
The bar staff were great and made our holiday - especially Javier who is a star.
Location is 2 minutes walk from shops and bars, 5 mins from beach (although you will take longer with the shops)
For an English family of 16 with 10 kids, we have no complaints and would recommend this hotel. we will certainly be returning, hopefully 2014.
A message for the bad reviewers is; get a life, it really isnt like you say, I am embarressed by the amount of grumpy fellow countryment who complain about everything.
hope this helps and you enjoy your possible stay.
