“A Little Gem”
Reviewed January 27, 2009

I Stayed here in june of 2008 and i am booking to return again this year, Very good Budget hotel. It is what it says it is. a very good low cast family all inclusive hotel, where it does lift its head above budget though is in its freindly service, which could easly be compared too and even better much higher cost hotels.
the food was very good with something for everyone. the specialty meats served from the end of the restaurant were especialy good. Pleanty for the children and good desserts, the Wife realy like the rice pudding and strawberry jam that was served one evening. the small playground for the children was a godsend and a curse all at the same time, as even though it kept them occupied the fact that it was beside the seating area of the restaurant made it impossible to keep the child sitting to eat as he was looking out the window at the playground the whole time, maybe if they closed the blinds in the very end of the restaurant beside the grill we might have had a tear free meal. but that is only a small problem.
when the three main meals of the day are not being served the snack bar is open. this was very good although some of the food was a bit on the cold side, but still it was cooked through so perfectly fine.
the rooms were small but not too small and the cleaners did a great job.
the entertainment was as expected and tiny and the gang do work very hard. one day they were teaching the kids to make balloon animals and my boy was too small so they showed me and i now make them for him at home. Great fun.
The hotel is slightly of the beaten track but we liked that. it was nice and quiet and you were only a 10min walk from the fun.
there is a mini bus that takes you to the beach in the morning and returns to the hotel in the afternoon, this is all part of your all inclusive package which is great.
the beer is the local stuff which is grand and there is a list of cocktails that the guys will make up for you also.
the two pools can sometimes get crowded but then there is the beach and two waterparks nearby.
there is also a supermarket right around the corner from the hotel.
Bottom line is for the money you pay this is a VERY good family Hotel.
See You in June :)

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children(9 and 11). We haven't visited Villamarina this year but have been there 6 times in the previous 5 years. We have always found the staff very friendly and the food has a lot of variety. Sometimes the weather isn't as good as it could be but thats the same if you stay in Britain. As others have said the rooms are a bit on the small side but you don't spend all day in your room. The entertainment staff are always very good quality, they change change from one year to the next, but we have met one (Geezer) every year. The star acts thay they have are different each nght and are also brilliant, flamenco dancers, the parrot man and a hypnotist to name a few. The hotel is away from the beach, about 20 minutes walk, but there is a bus service (free) from the front of the hotel that takes you there and brings you back later in the day. But I would say that being further away from the busier parts is good if you have young children and want it a bit quieter at night.

Are looking to go next year, probably Easter time, so please book me some sun.

stayed at the villa marina 26/10 - 02/11, had a great time. yes the rooms are average but you only change and sleep in them, i found them very adequate for our needs.
had a brilliant time at the hallowwen party, all the bar staff dressed up, even the girls in the restraunt with their whiches hats on. the security guard was awesome .
the entertainment staff, tiny, tasha, liz,adam etc were brilliant, they never stopped from 10.30am till midnight.
yes hotel is out of way but its only a 30min walk at slow pace, well we went into salou every day even when it rained and it did quite a lot of that.
will come again . well done thanks for a great time

We stayed at villamarina from 22/29th October.
I really cannot fault the hotel. Yes, the rooms are not massive, but
the hotel is quite up front about this. We had 2 rooms with 4 in each and it was fine.
The hotel is really well run, the staff are friendly and always willing to help and the entertainers are great.
The food was amazing and the chefs deserve a pat on the back because there was always a lot of choice and the food was nice and hot.
I noticed the hotel manager was always walking around the hotel chatting to guests and staff and I got the feeling that everybody seemed to be really happy working there, so I guess this helps make it a pleasant place to stay. I have stayed at many hotels over the years but I can safely say that the people who operate the Villamarina are the best I have come across, from the cleaners to the manager.
If you are thinking of staying here, rest assured that you will return home having had a fantastic holiday.
