Myself, hubby and two children (9) and (6) will be visiting Salou, leaving on 24th May and I have a couple of questions I hope someone can answer:-
1. Arriving Barcelona Airport and wonder if it is best, cheaper, and less hassle to get the bus, or the train to Tarragona?
2. We will be staying at the Occidental Blau Mar Hotel and we are very interest to hear what people have to say about it as I cannot find any reviews on it. The location is:
Agrave;seo Jaume I S/n Pere Iii
Salou, Tarragona 43840
3. What kind of weather are we to expect....so we know if we should back bathing costumes or jumpers!?
I would be very grateful for some feedback.
Have hired a car at Barcelona Airport as we thought it would be nice to drive along the coast and not have to struggle with suitcases. Also our return flight is quite early and so were worried that we wouldn't be able to get an early enough train. The Occidental Blau b.t.w. is one of the two hotels that I have not found anything negative reported (the other is La Gran Hotel La Hacienda in Pineda). It was a tossup for us which one we went for but we got an excellent price match on La Gran from Broadway Travel and settled with that. I think you will be very happy with Occidental - it is slightly upmarket which cannot be a bad thing! (No, not a snob but didn't want to take the risk!
we went to Salou at the end of May last year and the weather was really good. A couple of showers one evening and one heavy downpour was all we had in a fortnight..Our last couple of days were really hot it seemed to be getting hotter
hope you have nice time too
There is actually a Train Station in Salou itself.
Tarragona is a separate town althought area around is known by that name - A bit like our Counties with a County Town at the heart.
