We stayed at the hotel in August 2011 booked through Thomas Cooke. The hotel was clean and about two hundred yards from the beach. The rooms were large enough and cleaned regularly. The restaurant was buffet style with a reasonable selection of meat and fish dishes with lots of fresh fruit and bread. We went all inclusive which was worth the money as we had a couple of jugs of Sangria with the meal each day! The pool area was also clean and well kept with the pool having three sections of different depths for swimmers and non swimmers. Evening entertainment was also good, we saw a Beatles tribute band that were excellant.
The beach was also excellant with lovely sand and plenty of room. There is also a cycle path that runs next to the beach and you can cycle from Salou to Cambrils port without going on the road at all which is great for young children.
Places to visit are Salou for plenty of restaurants and bars. Taragona for the old town which is very pretty and Barcelona for the shops, beach and lovely Gaudi buildings including the unfinished cathedral (Sagrada Familia). The metro is also great for travelling around Barcelona. If you are a football fan you can visit Barcelona football stadium and go for a tour around the stand changing rooms and press boxes.
One tip would be to avoid the excursions through the tour operator and visit PLANA travel company just across the road. On our Barclelona trip we saved 17 Euros each and there were 7 of us. The buses to Salou and Cambrils are also cheap and frequent.
The only negatives about the hotel were the rooms were not very soundproof and there is a railway line behind the hotel (although the trains were very infrequent) also you could hear people outside the hotel talking and shouting late at night when trying to sleep and we were on the 3rd floor.
Also most of the waiters and waitresses were very unfriendly and very rarely smiled, but on the plus side you saved on tips!
