We have recently returned from this hotel. The hotel had a very good location on the main street where there were many shops, bars and restaurants. We found the receptionists very efficient and helpful when arriving although we did have to wait a couple of hours for our room to be ready which was no problem.
Our room was very nice, quite a good size. Very clean. The cleaners came in every day. We were on the 6th floor overlooking the swimming pools and we had a lovely sunny balcony, but the downside was the noise coming from the ground floor outside entertainment which was so loud it was almost like having it in the room with us. There was also constant music all day long which was a bit unnecessary for us anyway. There were plenty of sunbeds by the pools and the seating area was very good, with plenty of shade.
The bar staff were very pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately the staff in the dining room were completely different, in fact the first night we were there, because we didn't require a drink with our meal the waitress snatched the glasses from the table and seemed very annoyed with us from then on during the week. The noise in the dining room is amazing. I'm sure the breakages of crockery must be huge as the staff seem to throw the crockery on the trolley constantly. Unfortunately the food was mostly cold by the time you got it back to the table, and the toaster a breakfast was probably the slowest we've ever met!
We turned up for the welcome meeting with the Thomson rep at the place they told us to be but couldn't find her anywhere, then had to ask the receptionist where she was and found her in a completely different place - consequently we missed the first part of the meeting. She chose part of the room where there was loud music coming from another part so it was almost impossible to hear what she was saying. That was disappointing. However, we found our own way about and went to the excellent Plana but booking office and booked a trip to Barcelona which was very much cheaper than Thomson's trip there. That was an excellent day out. We also caught the Plana bus to Tarragona but were a bit disappointed as the bus went straight to the terminus there and we found ourselves in the middle of a huge industrial estate, which was a pity so we caught the bus back to a pretty resort about 10 mins away from Salou.
The entertainment was not really to our taste, however the jungle dancers were quite good but the flamenco evening was a bit ordinary and not what we would really expect the flamenco to be. They also seemed to rely a lot on a few little boys to get up on the stage and disco dance to seemingly keep people amused who were sitting in the seating area. This went on a lot, too much!
We quite liked the location of the hotel but would probably not go there again. We have been to 3 previous Thomson hotels which have been specifically for Thomson people, this hotel was not one of them. The others were better.
