We went for a week in early March. The apartment was clean and had good facilities, and is well located in a residential area about ten minutes walk from the promenade and beach. The bed was comfortable, and we generally slept well however you can sometimes hear other residents of the complex. The reception staff were very helpful and provided information on local supermarkets, restaurants and tours we could do. They also supplied an adapter when I realised I'd brought the wrong ones from home, which was very nice. We found it a good base to explore the area, and you do not need a car with excellent public transport available to get to Barcelona, Tarragona, Reus etc. The trains were very good and punctual, if in my opinion a bit slow for the journey to Barcelona (1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes for a 100 km journey). There are plenty of restaurants nearby, within 10 minutes walk, and we excellent meals the four times we ate out in Salou. I had read some previous reviews and could not understand the comment of one reviewer that he had to drive 2 km to find a place to eat, a quick glance on Google maps will show you that's not true. We ate in Barcelona one evening, catching the last train back to Salou (beware it's at 21:03, quite early) and ate in the apartment two evenings. There are two small supermarkets within 3 minutes walk and the larger Mercadona is about 7 minutes walk. Overall we really enjoyed our holiday. The only downsides were no oven in the apartment (hob and microwave only), and the walls are a bit thin. Having to pay for WiFi in the apartment is also a bit poor in this day and age when there is city wide free WiFi in places like Barcelona. You also have to ask for a kettle at reception for some reason, though there's no charge, I couldn't work out why they did this. I also think that as we were in a one bed sleep 4 (double sofa bed in lounge) that if there were four of you it would be a bit cramped.
I stayed here for a week with my aunt and uncle and we very much enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, and bus stops. We arrived very tired after having traveled for two weeks and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Joanne was very sweet, accommodating, and helpful! She assisted us with changing the dates of our stay and helping us find the market and helped us with the bus route. She also helped me find restaurants that had vegetarian options. Thank you, Joanne! The room was very clean and spacious. I loved the pool area - it was relaxing and quiet and the slide was awesome! I met some friendly people in the pool area. My only complaint was that we could only have one mobile device on wi-fi at a time. But I would still visit again because no need to be on mobile device all the time when on vacation. :)
looking at the photos and reading the descripton on booking.com the establishment gives the impression this is a really nice holiday complex, sadly it is not. i chose this apartment to its proximity to stay after a day at portaventura. its in a residential area and residential complex. There are balconies strewn with clothes, its very scruffy. The pool area in photos looks really pretty in reality its not..its surrounding by closed down shops or offices? Really grubby patios slabs, i would not want to sit around that pool. The apartment itself is clean and functional, but bland, the traffic outside is very noisy and the walls are paper thin. We had to drive 2km to find any food and quite frankly salou is the most depressing place I have ever been too. If all you want to do is get drunk on cheap booze and eat kababs and be surround by tacky UK culture and not spanish this is the place for you.
Roomy one bedroom close to beach, though no rooms have ocean view. Staff is so nice! Good black-out shades and quiet A/C. Never went to the pool. There lots of restaurants in walking distance. Easy bus ride from Barcelona airport. Cool vibe in town, though lots of non-Spanish. Loved it regardless.
The apartment was too small for my family. There were residents and apartments for rent in the same building, so the experience was uncomfortable. Elevators looked dirty and very old. I stayed for less than a week, and the room was cleaned just twice. I interchanged a week through Interval, but I honestly think this hotel should not even be on their list. I heard some people complaining about the wifi connection. Receptionists were not always available, and nobody answered my calls whenever I tried to contact them from the room, even during the day. In general, I would not stay there again.
Where do I start. Noisy apartment full of Spanish kids at the pool screaming and shouting parents letting them do what they want it's like a zoo NOT for relaxing Grass cutting will wake you up at 8.30! no notification of this, can hear everything in the apartment neighbours shouting and having party's at 3am drunk young boys so disappointed will not return back here if you paid me.
My family and I love Salou. We go every chance we get and this is the perfect resort. Rodi was our attendant and she was just fabulous. Great experience for me and my family! The room was clean and spacious.
Clean, perfectly equipped studio. Lovely pool area with lush vegetation, enough empty sun beds any time of the day. Great location - quiet with shops and restaurants of all kinds in a walking distance. Morning walk/run in a huge park just behind the resort is such a nice start of the day. Plenty of sightseeing possibilities in the neighboring towns where yo can also enjoy in gastronomical delights. Helpful and friendly stuff are doing their best for your comfort.
Don't come here what a waste of money Pool has no. Bar also no own foood and drink allowed of kids arms bands. Your not alllerd to do nothing at pool no food no drink as long as sat there it's not nine. People and staff are rude don't go I wouldn't waste money if you need toilet you need a key to get thro 3 doors and sane if u want food or drink don't waste money
The manager was concerned about my review, but my review will be trueful. We arrived at 11.30am check in was at 16.00. Not a problem. Straight to the pool which was nice and quiet with plenty of empty sun beds. An hour later our room was ready. The checkin was good and the receptionist told us where the best supermarket was-locals use it so very cheap. And recommended some restaurants and a map. We went to Room which was a 1 bedroom apt. Small but clean . Half of the sofa bed wasn't comfy for an adult but the kids didn't complain. Air con in bedroom and lounge nice and cool. Room overlooked pool with afternoon sun just what we asked for.everything good so far. We spent first week mostly at theme parks but then we started using hotel pool towards backend of first week. These apts are for both holidaymakers and Spanish residents. This where the problems started. A security guard started is summer work at the back end of our first week. We started to see the residents complaining to the guard. I was in the pool in a small ring with my child in a ring. The security guard told me I was not allowed to be in the ring but the kids were. The residents had complained about this. Next day. Playing catch with a small ball. Residents complained again. Told to stop. Next day eating a sandwich at the side of the pool, again resident complained. Couldn't eat. This was becoming a joke so I spoke to manger. She said she couldn't do any thing as the residents seem to rule the roost. But she said I could go in my ring, eat food and play catch between 2-4. This is siesta time when all residents have gone and security guard goes for dinner. What a joke! The manager told me her hands were tied and there are 300 residents which they obviously favour. I'm all for rules but it wasn't like we were jumping around ,shouting and playing music, just floating in a ring lol. Also I booked this apt because of the slide. But the slide is only on from 11.00-14.00 then off till 17.00 and back on for a few hours. Nobody could give me reason for this, but again it seems like it's down to the residents wanting a siesta. These trivial things spoilt our stay a little, but if your just a couple and want piece and quiet you'll not go wrong. But if you want a little fun you maybe disappointed. We got a taxi from airport which was 30 euros. Location is in the Spanish end with small bars and plenty of restaurants and supermarkets. Tenmin walk to beach/harbour and approx 30 min walk to the lively end.
