We booked this hotel as part of a combined flight/hotel/theme park package for a quick 3 day trip to PortAventura in Spain.
Having stayed at on-site theme park hotels in the USA, my initial reaction was that the hotel was more "cheap & cheerful" rather than the 4* rating claimed on the website. However, there was actually nothing to worry about as the rooms were a generous size, clean and the staff all very polite and helpful.
We paid for half board and to be honest you would be mad not to pay the little bit extra over the B&B price because the food was very good indeed with a large range for both breakfast and dinner. Drinks prices were fine both in the restaurant and the bar.
The grounds appeared to be well maintained and free wi-fi was available in communal areas of the hotel at no extra charge. It is only a short 10 minute walk to the gates of PortAventura but there is also a free bus every 15-20 minutes or so.
Overall we were very happy with the hotel and whilst not quite up to the standard of something like the Royal Pacific at Universal Studios in Florida (which is 4*), it is also far less expensive! We would definitely stay at this hotel again although I would be tempted to stay in one of the hotels that has direct access to the park.
