“The hotel is not a 4 *.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

- Hotel 3 * rather than 4 *.

- Not a varied food.
- Terrible buzz in the dining room.
- Terribly slow and not friendly staff at the reception.
- Large hearing. You can hear people walking through the corridors, and slam doors.

Arrangement? I don't know what to tell.
Close to the sea. Close to Tarragona and Salou.
On the train ride to Barcelona.
Near Port Aventura.
This is perhaps all the "pros" of the hotel.
It's a shame. I expected more.

The only big "+" hotel - it's housekeeping. Great job!

spent 3 nights in this hotel and fully disappointed. all staff in the room were not clean well and were old and scratched. moreover - in bathroom and bedroom I founded mould and cobweb. there were a lot of stains on the walls.
room was very cold (no proper heating when it's cold outside). floor was icy (ceramic tile) and threre were no any slippers in the room (they must be in 4star hotel). I asked 3 times before they brought them (from another hotel..).
all towels and betclothes had very strong detergents odor (not swilled well).
Credit card payment terminal didnt work when I did check-out. it took me half an hour to wait untill they will repair it (no ATM in the hotel).
price was cheap (50 eur) and acceptable for that quality (ecxept not clean room which is not acceptable with any price). but this hotel cannot promote itself as 4 stars. maximum 2-3.
also I cannot understand how people can spand vacations close to such huge chemical complex close to it... even a very modern and safe one. (a quater of all Spanish chemical industry located in Tarragona chemical hub)

I have stayed at this hotel in august 2012 for 2 weeks with my family. The hotel was rather big.It is actually 2 hotels in one. our room was at the 1st floor and faced the tennis court. At first we were disappointed and asked to change our room but in the evening hearing the loud music from outside /it was the daily show/ we decided not to change it and were not mistaken. The guests from opposite rooms always complained of the loud music near the pool.The location was good> It takes 3 or 5 minutes from us to go to the beach. The hotel was full of Russians but it wasn't problem. We didn't see anyone drunk. The food was good. Everyone could find anything he wants to eat. There were different food every day. Meat,fish, vegetables, fruit and I want to mention especially the sweets and cookies which were awesome.Every evening there was a show program near the pool which was very interesting and they all differ from each other.The room service was bad. The maids didn't clean the rooms in proper way. And the day of our departure I asked the boys in reception to give me a call so that I would be able to get up and not to be late for the taxi.They forgot and I was lucky to get up myself otherwise I would stay there:( If you make up your mind to visit this hotel I'd recommend it. Only be careful not to ask the boys to wake you up by the telephone call:):)

spent the last week of October at Palas Pineda. Hotel was very clean and warm staff in the bar and resturant were very plesant. Food was good but not a large choice. Pool area looked good to cold to go for a swim outside used the indoor pool and gym. Location was excellant has a base 20 minute walk to Salou or 2 minutes to La Pineda. Bus stop at the bottom of the street worth a ride to Reus (great Market) and Tarragona Only 2 euros each. Had a day in Barcelona caught train from Salou took 50 minutes .would definatly return to Palas Pineda in the summer beach is very clean. Check your reservation when you book in has they had put us down for a six night stay in there system.

I have been to the Palas Pineda on 3 or 4 occasions and I have to say it rarely disappoints. Upon arriving at Palas Pineda you will be amazed at the size of the hotel. It is actually two hotels in one. Both with their own entrances. Everything you touch or see is marble. You would be forgiven to thinking you were back in the Roman days or just stepped inside Julius Caesars' house. Statues and murals all over the place. Gold embossing everywhere you look. No expense has been spared here.

The same can be said for the rooms. Now we only had a standard double room. There is a balcony and a nice sized bathroom. It is a perfect size and if you get a pool view the all the more bonus! The elevators are very quick to all levels and there is rarely a queue.

The food is basically 'all inclusive' food. Its okay for a few days, but then you think you need to eat elsewhere. I personally found the food rather repetitious. The breakfasts were lovely and it is a nice touch that you can grab a bottle or two of wine for your table in the evening.

The bar at night is a bit small for the size of the hotel. Only allowing you 2 drinks per person is a bit harsh, but I suppose it cuts down on the queues. Personally I found the bar staff unapproachable and this was rather disappointing. I understand the busyness of the place but a little social etiquette wouldn't have gone a miss.

One last gripe was that the pool area was too small. The pools are great and large, but the sundbeds do not fit well around the pool. That is to say there is not really enough space for everyone.

I make this hotel sound terrible, but it actually isn't. It is a great place to go. Only 2 minutes from the beach and shops. The local restaurants and shops are a nice stroll to take in also.
