Stayed here with my husband and 6 month old baby. Check in was a bit disappointing as we got there at 11am, but our room wasn't ready. I think we were the unlucky ones as everybody else's seemed to be fine. We had to sit in the bar area until 2pm, which was a little frustrating.
The receptionist told us not to complain however as they had given us a free upgrade to a sea view room, so we just patiently waited.
The room was lovely and looks like they've had a recent refurb. Very spacious and there was a fridge which was a fab bonus. Shower was great and very spacious with plenty of hot water.
There was a problem with the cot they provided though, as only 2 sides out of ...
4 locked in position. Hubby phoned reception and they sent somebody up, who told us that "maid say's it's ok, been like that for a long time". Tried to explain that we had one similar at home, and 4 sides locked but it fell on deaf ears. It was OK though and seemed sturdy enough. Baby slept in it fine all week. Read More
If your a light sleeper I would avoid sea view rooms as they hold the evening entertainment around the poolside and it's very noisy until Midnight.
We didn't find drinks that cheap at 3.80 euros for 2 half beers, but with a baby in tow we didn't drink very much anyway.
Poolside was very clean and tidy and just off it there was a little park for the children. Lifeguard on duty at all times. Pool opened at 10am and closed at 6.30pm. Pool bar opened at 11am and closed at 4.30pm but the inside bar was very close by. Times may change in peak season, I’m not sure. You only had to cross a small cycle track and you were on the beach so lovely and close.
Meal times- Breakfast started at 8am, and you had toasties, full English, cold meats, salad, boiled eggs, cereals, bread, fruit, and pastries, so plenty to choose from. The chef was also there making fresh smoothies and milkshakes.
We were half board so had an evening meal also. You could change this and have it at lunchtime instead if you wanted, but you had to let reception know by 7pm the night before.
Evening meal started at 8pm which we found really late. By that time the baby was getting grumpy and was ready for bed. Much better if it would have started 6.30/7pm for us. Only once we went there by 8pm, and it was terrible, everybody pushing and shoving. Leave it until 8.20pm and the majority of the chaos has ended.
For you internet lovers there were 4 computers in the lobby, at 1 euro for 15 minutes. All in all no major complaints about this hotel.
One thing I would bare in mind though is that it is actually in the middle of nowhere, with not much nearby. The walk into Cambrils itself takes 30minutes, but it's all flat and you can walk the promenade. The walk into Salou would take much longer so we didn't do that. Buses are ample though and so easy to use. The bus stop is right outside the hotel.
