Food was basic, same as every hotel I have stayed in, in Spain, but you usually find something to eat but does not cater for the British taste, but why should they.
The location is fantastic, even though room on the road side, this was not a problem.
The Hotel was clean and maid service excellent as long as you leave label on door handle to request service. The room had brilliant sound proofing compared to others we have stayed in which made for a good nights sleep. In general the staff were helpful & polite my only complaint would be regarding a poolside waiter who helped himself to a tip from my change.
The entertainment was as expected very poor but we went out every night as there is so much to do just outside the Hotel bars etc and not far to seafront bars, the Hotel sports theme bar is ok too and beer a good price. It is also only a 10 minute cheap bus ride to Cambrills which is very nice.
The food was nothing special and not much choice except for salad bar. Also odd how you weren’t allowed HP sauce at breakfast but it was out at evening meal. The staff work to strict unbendable rules and you have to queue at all meal opening times.
Around the pool is very nice with palm trees etc but there are no parasols except for four fixed ones. So you have to move around during day for either sun or shade.
All in all the Hotel has standards which is good and we genuinely enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.
all in all would reccomend this hotel and would return there too.Entertainment is mainly foreign so we went out on a nite.

the rooms are adequate if you dont have a pool view you will be opposite a very noisy main road with sirens going through the night close your patio door and you won't hear a thing. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout.
Taxi from Reus airpot 28 euros and is 15mins away taxis are waiting outside no hassle getting one. As mentioned before the entertainment is for the over 60s but the location of the hotel is excellent and very close to the bars restaurants and beach a 5min walk away.
I would visit the hotel again but not salau. There is a very nice terrace at the pool area with a jacuzzi and plenty of sunbeds same old story get up early to knab one though. Life guard on duty 9-5 lots of shade but very small childrens pool.
the food is excellent a really great choice every night and staff helpful. the aquopolis water park is a good day out 23 euros entrance for adult and 12 euros in a taxi 1.85euros on a bus the hotel will sell a ticket including free bus one way.

The room we had was over looking the pool area,which was clean with towels changed daily.
The hotel food was very good,plenty of choices,but not much for children (we had our 2 grand children with us who lived on chips for the week).
We found that the pool bar staff were rude and unhelpful.One of the pool bar staff even refused my wife a cup of tea as he had just cleaned the coffee machine!!!
The bar staff in the sportsman bar ,which is part off the hotel were excellent.
The entertainment in the evening was good if you are Spainish and over 60+.
We would stay at this hotel again

Our room was nice with great view over pool, beds made every day and clean sheets once a week and clean towels daily if you wanted. In a great location 5 mins from beach which is lovely.
Lots of shops, bars and restaurants all around but not too noisy at night.We found the food great, such a lot to chose from. We were H/board, breakfast consisted of full cooked english with chips if wanted, ommlette, fried eggs, scrambled egg, bread and rolls, also continental breakfasts, croissants and fruits.
Evening meal was always good with choices of pasta, meat and fish with veg and potatoes, chips, paella dishes, sometimes pizza, burgers and hot dogs which pleased the boys. A great selection of salads and again different bread and rolls.
Desserts were lovely, rice pudding, doughnuts, gateauxs, custard and lots of fruits to chose from aswell as icecream. The only down side was the evening entertainment unless you were spanish and a o.a.p, it was pretty bad, but then we were pleased there wasnt any drunken hooligans.
During the day the boys enjoyed the games that was put on by the lovely rep Lionel, crazy golf, bowls, darts, and especially water polo. They both come home with certificates for winning some of the games.
They actually preferred to stay round pool for that reason than to go to the beach. We went to Portaventura a couple of days which was very good and also the water park there which is only 5mins away if you catch the tram just across the road from the hotel.
Overall I wouldn't definately recommend this hotel and we would go back there.

Breakfast: Huge choice ranging from about 6 different types of freshly cut bread and rolls, toasted by yourself if you so wish.4 different cereals with fresh milk,fruit selection of fresh pineapple, watermelon , honeydew melon also compotes of peaches, pears etc.Hot bacon, beans, tomatoes, eggs fried ,scrambled, boiled, omlettes,sausages of different types,always chips,black pudding,etc.Jams, marmalades, butter or margerine,even cakes and doughtnuts,and of course the continental option of croissants, cold sliced meats and cheese....EXCELLENT!
Lunch if you like (AT AN EXTRA COST, AS WE WERE HALF BOARD) although we found the breakfast sufficient to last us all day until dinner in the evening.
Dinner: huge choice again of different breads and rolls. Fantastic salad bar of about 20 different salads, pickles, olives , cold meats and cheeses.Always chips. Also always a pasta dish. Normally 2 or 3 different hot options on hot plate of meat or fish dishes and the chefs cook fresh meat or fish on griddle in the restaurant every day. Again , normally about 6 different sweets or the fresh fruit options again ,sliced pineapples, melons ,bananas, etc. literally too much to list.We found food here to be of a high standard , something for everyone and every nationality. Thursday night they went to town with obviously local produce highly influenced with fresh fish and shell fish dishes but unlike other reports on this site, we found plenty of other options other than fish if you prefer.
We feel that the food provided here was above the 3* rating of the hotel and alot better than other 4* hotels we have stayed in.
Location: Spot on, bang in the middle of the resort between the lively Newtown and the Old town. 5 minute walk to the beach, nightlife , and all the shops.But surprisingly quiet and relaxing around the pool during the day.
Entertainment ; OH DEAR! apart from 3 nights consisting of an African dance group,a Brazillian dance group (take your camera lads!!!!) and a flamenco show it was all spanish old time dancing music by the same repetitive duets with an organ and backing cd's, all playing the same stuff...Dissapointing.
the childrens club was very basic and lacking in facilities. water polo in the pool, pool, and a little dancing. Better suited to the 55 plus range of age, who seem to be able to line dance at every conceivable speed and any rythmn!
That said, we found the hotel to be very clean,offering clean towels everyday if you so wished and the bedding changed once a week. We would certainly reccommend this hotel to all age groups as it is located within a 5 minute walk to loud nightlife if thats your thing.

Fruit, cerial, rolls/bread. Eggs/beans etc. The bar - large beer 2.5 euro. Jack D & coke 7.5 euro. There is a bar just around the corner called the California that does a large beer for 1.5 euro and in happy hour 7pm, 2 beers for 1.5 euro.
That's about the cheapest place. The hotel is very clean and the maids will change your towels every day if you wish. The rooms are air conditioned and pretty comfortable. Good bathroom including hairdryer etc. Entertainment not great.
Finally, request a room with a pool view is very nice. I would go back.

The hotel was very clean and welcoming; we could not fault how clean the hotel was. The pool area, reception, the dining area, the bar and the rooms were all very clean to a high standard. Your room gets cleaned each day but if you want your sheets changed you need to put a sign that is on your door handle on the outside door handle because if you don
