“No complaints at all!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We have just returned from a weeks stay at these apartments. On arrival, the receptionist was very helpfull and even gave my 4 year old a blow up lilo! The apartement was clean, bright and well equipped. No need to take a travel kettle as this was supplied along with toaster, microwave, tv and juicer! Towels, extra bedding and even tea towels are also supplied. The pool was nice with a seperate section for the kids. It's about a 5 minute walk to the shops and 10 minutes to the beach. There's a supermarket and Spar shop below the hotel.
All in all, this hotel is fantastic value for money, with friendly, helpfull staff. I would definetely consider staying here again if we return to Salou.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors are quieter.

We landed at the apartemtnts at 13.20 to find out thy were closed from 13.00 -16.00, this was annoying as we were never informed. Some of the staff were rude but then others were very friendly, we paid €75 each between 4 of us for 8 nights, also paid €110 deposit on arrival but this was returned no problem once apartment was left in good condition and nothing was broken

We chose the Mariposa apartments after reviewing trip advisor and decided to book it for our 5 day break. We arrived on Sunday and check in did take around 40 minutes. Our apartment did not have air con but we requested one with and a higher apartment due to the noise etc, this was not a problem and the receptionist arranged this for us. The air con is 10 euros a day and was only in our lounge so at night it was pointless for cooling your bedroom- would recommend not having it. We were also asked to leave a security deposit of 110 euros, we like other guests received it back no problem.

Our sheets and towels were not changed during our stay but we did get four towels so this was plenty for our 5 day stay. The rooms were big and spacious with a big balcony. There was plenty of self catering amenties which was great for us.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the beach and around 5 minute walk to the main road with all the bars and restaurants. We recommend Danny Boys, an Irish bar that has live bands on and the atmosphere is great. The Tropical bar is also amazing and would recommend a visit.

We visited Barcelona whilst we were there. We were told to get the bus instead of the train which turned out to be great. The last bus is at 11pm so you have alot of time to explore the City. It is 24 euros each for a return and a 2 hour journey. We got tickets for the tour bus and did the red route and blue route, which again we defo recommend as you see so much of the city. Would defo recommend you ask where to get your return bus to Salou from as we found it difficult as its not the same place you are dropped off.

Overall the hotel is in an ideal location, clean and spacious. We did find it quite noisey but this depends on your room.

We would recommend this hotel to young people who wanted to be close to the beach and nightlife.

Room Tip: Higher up so you are cooler and away from the noise.

I ended up staying in these apartments by chance as our original booking in another hotel was overbooked. The apartments are big and spacious and all of you nessasities are provided. The only thing that was not there was an iron. We had the air conditioning which helped as there was a heatwave when we were there. The balcony is a good size. The apartment is not cleaned, you do your own cleaning and you drop out your own rubbish every day. In the 9 days that we were there we received one towels and sheets change. I am not sure if this is common in all of salou apartments as this was my first time to stay in Salou. I have never seen it in other resorts that I have stayed in where you have to drop out your own rubbish. Also please be aware that there is 110 deposit which we paid in cash. We received this deposit back with no issues when we were leaving. The receptionist was extremly helpful and professional in all of her dealings with us. The pool is a good size with a childrens pool and was clean. There was a lifeguard on duty everyday. The only problem with the pool was that people used the guard gate (between the deep and shallow side) on the pool as a volleyball net therefore it could be quite dangerous for kids when the volleyball games where in full action. I found that the apartments are for young couples or groups, it is not really for families as there was no entertainment for kids and there was no snackbar available. I was really surprised with Salou, it is a great area with loads to do.

So I've been on many holidays and always go with an open mind. I like to consider myself a balanced reviewer having stayed in varying conditions from dormitories in Thailand to 5star hotels in Britain.

Good points
The rooms (we had two as a family of 7) were both exactly as depicted on the pics on here both with hob, microwave, fridge freezer and toaster. Spacious and great balcony.

The pool was lovely! Great size cleaned every morning. Open late and plenty of loungers

The location just a short ride from portaventura! Many family pubs nearby, walking distance to the beach an lots of nice restaurants around. Walking distance to the centre of town

The bad points
No air con!! You have to pay extra for aircon and even then one of the rooms didn't have an aircon unit! This did mean very little sleep as we arrived in an unusually hot August!

The noise! The apartments were full of groups of youngsters who despite a noise notice seemed to be partying most nights all night (only stopping when I went out and bawled them out) there was no security guard to complain to! Although the location is great in one respect it is also very near pacha and is surrounded by hotels with no sound proofing which means lots of late night early morning noise!

Cleanliness - although they were clean on arrival don't expect any cleaning to be done or sheets etc to be changed whilst your there unless your doing it yourself

So to sum it up, I personally wouldn't stay here again unless it was for a 'party holiday' i deffo would advise anyone with a young family to steer clear but I did enjoy my stay mainly because the pool was so welcome in the heat!

We have stayed here twice, and are going back again, staff always helpful, rooms clean and spacious, never had any noise or theft problems at this hotel, you get what you pay for, and we always just book as a last minute 5 day get away, if you want 5*, u don't get it at these prices anywhere, we also stay in other countries, on a bigger budget, but this hotel is great for a cheap few days

Best thing about appartments is its LOCATION very handy to walk to an endless amount of bars, shops. The weather here is amazing hot and very sunny every day. Appartments close to 3 beaches something to suit anyone quiet small cove or vast busy stretch all very clean. The appartments are BASIC nothing fancy or of luxury if you want somewhere cheap and in a good location you will love it. No entertainment in the appartments though as mentioned you have it all on your doorstep anyway and you can go into other nearby hotels if you wanted. No cleaning/maid service- no change of towels, bins or bedding you do it all yourself during your stay. The pool is small and not many loungers arround it. The roof terrace its a sun trap till 8pm showers up there to cool off and its nice and peacfull to lap up the rays. Things to be aware of 110 euro breakage deposit on arrival you do get it back when check out providing you keep the place tidy they do check the appartment over. The rooms without aircon are like little ovens and mosquito heaven you have to get one with aircon to enjoy your stay they charge 10 euros per day but its worth every cent..... The reception opens at 9am so if you have a early check out like us you have to do it the day before to get your breakage deposit back. Also you can only move into your rooms from 3pm so if you have an early check in like us we had to leave our bags in the bagage room and wonder round salou in the heat for 5 hrs this was a bit anoying as we just wanted to get in our room cool off and get our sunbathing gear on. During our stay we didnt witness any stupid behaviour or loud noice at night to stop you sleeping it was great on that respect. Would I go back? only if I had a small budget for our holiday, its ideal for a cheap short stay otherwise I would prefare somewhere more upmarket and more modern The Port Aventura Hotels looked nice or the H10 hotels. PortAventura the new Shambala ride is amazing but had to que for over 2 hrs to get on it, in the sticky heat!!!! they do have fast pass tickets EXPENSIVE and you still have big ish ques even with them. If I was going again I would got in the evening when its not as hot OR as busy as the park is open till midnight sometimes even later 3am. The Aqua Leon Park is good a water park and safari park in one and not busy so you can get on the slides quick without massive ques.

Room Tip: You have to get aircon its a must!
