I have just returned from the Villa Marina and had a great holiday. Hotel reception was very clean and maids were always seen around the rooms on our floor.
Check-in was very organised and throughout the week the staff were very helpful and friendly.
We stayed on an all-inclusive basis and found there was plenty of choice within the week. Food was what you would expect of a 3 star hotel, full english breakfasts,toast, bread rolls, croissants, cereals, cold meatsand fruit. Plenty of choice also for lunch and evening meals.Each evening the chef would carve a roast joint.There was also a choice for children each day, the usual fish fingers, chicken nuggets, pasta, boiled rice, jacket potatoes, beans etc. In my opinion if you cant find anything to eat at this hotel you are too fussy!
The rooms are smaller than average, but ...
we managed, although the balconies are small, only big enough for one patio chair on its side. Read More
The hotel is in a quiet location away from the resort centre which suited my family as I have young children.Each evening there was a family film shown on a large screen outside near the play area or there was also a TV inside which showed a family film. I have two daughters aged 3 and 7 and they enjoyed watching the entertainment. Like all hotels it won\'t suit everyone they do play the usual games of bingo. We saw a Abba Tribute group, The Four Tops, Elvis, tribal dancers and the kids enjoyed the usual disco and party dances.The entertainment and bar closes at 12,you are then asked to finish drinks on the terrace by half midnight so the hotel is very quiet and peaceful from then for a good nights sleep-no rowdy behaviour.
The hotel is about a 20 minute walk away from the main areas of Salou which is obviously much busier. The hotel runs a courtesy bus between 10 and 11.30 am to the resort centre and returns between 4 and 5.30 pm. A taxi is really cheap as well approx 5 euros during the day(approx 8 on an evening).
I do think this hotel is more suited for families than older adults. Overall we had a great time and I would visit this hotel again. A holiday to me is what you make of it, good value for money.
