“Brilliant family holiday”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We booked a mobile home at camping sanguli direct with the campsite rather than through Thomson Alfresco. It was about £300 cheaper, but the thing to remember if you do this, you won't have English neighbours. We were in an area with predominantly Dutch and French and although this didn't bother us, our 14 year old son might have met more friends in the more English area of the site. This was a minor drawback and I have to say, that our pitch was just fantastic and the mobile home was lovely. We went for the Louesian model which has two bedrooms. We did see the smallest ones and they did look tiny.
The campsite is absolutely beautiful and I can't really say a bad thing about it. There are 3 pools. We preferred the one nearest reception as it was much quieter than the other two, which got very crowded and it was difficult to find a sunbed. There are slides and activities at the other pools, but our son just walked round there for football and there was also water polo and other activities.
There are two supermarkets, one at each end of the site and these stock everything you would need for simple cooking. They are expensive but without a car, there was no real alternative. We tried to view it in relative terms in that it was cheaper than eating out.
With regard to eating out, the campsite restaurant is very good and we discovered that it is cheaper than most restaurants we found in Salou. It is definitely worth a visit and far better quality than those on the beach front outside the site.
The whole campsite has a very relaxed feel and all the staff were very helpful. It is very large and was very full in August, but it never felt over crowded. There were some English families, but these were totally outnumbered by the Dutch, French and Spanish. It has a very European feel, so if are looking for a holiday with lots of other English people, then this isn't the site for you. The food in the shop was very Spanish as was the restaurant and we loved that.
We flew from East Midlands direct to Reus with Ryan air and then simply picked up the local bus to the site. Don't waste your money on a taxi, the local company, Bus Plana run services from each flight and will drop you right outside the site entrance for a fraction of the price. We used the same company for a day in Taragona, which is stunning and we also went on their service to Barcelona. Quicker than the train and they stop near Camp Nou, which was great for us as we had booked a hotel there for an over night stay, after a match at the stadium. We booked tickets for the match on the Internet from home and stayed at a small hotel nearby called Bonanova park. Looking at the package prices we saw on arrival, I would recommend you book yourself as its far cheaper and the hotel was just fine, simple but clean and friendly.
All round, a brilliant family holiday and we would definitely return to Sanguli, if we return to Salou.

Halfway thru my 2nd stay at Sanguli. I agree with the bulk of the reviews. Almost impossible to fault unless nit picking. So here are a few thrifty tips. Book thru the web site for the best accom. If you can go mid sept after the price drop - Significant savings. Similar savings in may but not nearly as much happening. Fly to Reus. Book early for a cheap flight. Take a bus from the airport (if you can manage the bags/kids). Plana bus parked and waiting just outside terminal. Less than 1/2 the price of the cabs. Worth it. Price of shops on restaurants on site competitive so no need to waste time trying to leave the site bargin hunting. Bus anywhere just outside gate. Cheap too. Suggest - Tarragona old town area v-nice. Finally don't bother with car hire. Extra expense. As I said great bus service and bike hire on or off site. Sea front cycle lanes stretch for miles. So save pounds when losing a few.

We drove direct to Spain from south wales last September 2012 to the Sanguli Resort with three children age 17,14 and 11.We had booked with Thomson Al Fresco in their caravans/mobile homes within the site.We had a fantastic holiday ! The drive was an experience that I would do again ...minus children lol ! ( Are we nearly there yet .......!!! )
The campsite was spectacular,the place is clean and well kept.Even though the site was busy especially on the weekends when touring campers came it never felt crowded.The pools are amazing something for everyone.You can walk to the beach if you ever feel the need to its a 2 min walk.If you want to go further afield there is a bus stop just across the road that takes you to most places.
Be prepared that this is a very spanish site so most holidaymakers are spanish but we enjoyed that ! No rowdy british gangs round the pool ! The lifeguards are quite strict ..rightly so .. and will stop any rowdiness immediately.
My only complaint was that the Thomson Al Fresco caravans and reps are not that great.The caravan needed a good clean and the floor in one bedroom had dropped but the reps are not interested ..when you walk around the site you see the Sanguli caravans are immaculate aand cleaned regularly.The Thomson ones dont get cleaned at all while your there and the towels dont get replaced !! We were there for just under three weeks and when I asked if we get clean towels was told ..No ..You have to use the launderette on site to wash them yourself.
I would go there again tomorrow but I would book direct with Sanguli due to better customer ervice experience and caravans .If you are looking at this site I can highly recommend!! Get Booking !!

We last visited Sanguli 5 years ago and loved it...is even better now! First impressions are it's a massive site full of people and looks very busy (August) but the park is so big and spread out we never felt as if there were too many people in any one area. We stayed in Tahiti suite 13, booked direct with site, perfect location, big grassy area with sun all day to lie and relax on the sun loungers when we fancied a change from the pool area! Inside the bungalow was very clean, sofa beds a little hard but kids never noticed! No reserving sunbeds before 11am, but I went down around 10 most mornings and kept a few, so long as I sat on one they never moved the towels! Although there are 3 pool areas we just used the same one every day, had great slides and swim up bar, kids loved getting a lolly from that every day! The entertainment at night was very Spanish orientated...which we loved, we were in Spain after all! Kids mini disco started at 9, games and dancing for the younger kids, then the shows began at 10, usually dancers when we were there, which my girls loved watching. Then they did dance routines every night...adults enjoyed this as much as kids! The entertainments team work so hard, they seem to really enjoy their jobs! Restaraunts on site were just ok, much better to head out of campsite and turn right, we found a good few places to eat at very reasonable prices. Take away pizzas are lovely! Bakery in supermarket did the nicest apple puffs I've ever had...! Security excellent, very quiet at night after midnight. Beach just outside park, 4 euro for sunbed or 2 for a chair,lovely clean beach and water. Didn't go into Salou at all....got the bus to Cambrils, beautiful town with so many lovely shops and restaraunts. If you go to plana bus office you can get a 10 trip card for 14.90, whole family can use the one card. We went to portaventura one evening, then on way out booked a day at Costa Caribe water park at 30% discount. Well worth it! A perfect family holiday, relaxing but with plenty to keep everyone happy!

Room Tip: Tahiti suite 13 a good location

This was our second year in Sanguli with Thompson AlFresco and it didn't disappoint.
Sanguli Parc has everything you could want for a holiday with your kids that is both fun and relaxing. The pools are excellent: clean, well guarded, with good facilities. The Thompson Kids club was of a very high standard and the staff were friendly, kind and loved by our kids.
We plan to go back in 2014 and have already recommended it to several friends who plan to go.

We had a great time here. There's something for everyone. Kids clubs were great although make sure you are prompt on collection or else the kids seem to be let out by themselves.
Mobiles are spotless.
Great selection of pools and slides.
Food is lovely in both bar and takeaway.
Will definitely be going back again.
