Only down side is noise from opposite hotel ,which the hotel can’t do a lot about and a lot of big groups here stag dos which if you are unlucky may have the room next to you and be very noisy.
Bottom patios are great for children and chilling out on, balconies the same. We found the hotel food good and cheap enough when didn’t feel like cooking.
Everywhere clean and neat. Pool was great, big enough for all and plenty of space all around it. Spar supermarket just across the road with everything especially all bottle and canned beer cheap. All you want and need is walking distance and handy. Bus for theme and water parks stops not too far from hotel.
Can't have enough praise for the hotel staff from cleaners to manager, most speak English and so nice and helpful.
Special personal thanks to staff who helped us with our own unforeseen medical emergency, they were brilliant.
All the staff were friendly mainly Oscar in the back bar and the girls on reception. The entertainment could have been more but what there was was good enough, with all the staff doing their bit to keep everyone happy.
Only bad thing was that the bar shut at midnight and then you were sent packing. It was a great 12 days and we had fun!

The first impression of the appartment was that it wasn't very clean, the taps had limescale on them and hadn't been cleaned properly, the dishes/cutlery/utensils were dirty and the pillows for the pull-out bed were dirty, although when we put the covers on they were allright! We has a fridge/freezer and washing machine in the room although the rim arount the fridge/freezer had a bit of rust and the powder drawer of the washing machine was missing!!!
Deposit of 100Euros we felt was a bit steep as it left you with many unwanted euros at the end of the trip, i personally cant see why the couldn't take sterling as it had the same ammount of value to us but was more useful when we got home!
Although the appartment wasn't really clean it was fine for a group of girls for a weekend, especially as we were hardly in the room! I wouldn't like to have stayed there longer with a family!

Once again we were greeted by the kind staff at the front desk, and were given 2 rooms beside each other, although we had to wait an hour or two before we could get in as they weren't ready but that was fine and I expected this as it's the same all over Spain.
Not a bother though, because I thought this, I had packed my kids' swim stuff in their hand luggage aswell as a small towel, and had told my friend to do the same so all was well, kids were happy and we started our holiday early so to speak lol.
Anyhow, rooms were ready at abround 1pm,, and again were clean and tidy. A 2 ring cooker, sink, fridge toaster and kettle were provoded aswell as the Air Conditioning remote!
We were on the 4th floor and kids loved it as we could see Port aventura from the Balcony.
The food in the resturaunt downstairs was lovely and reasonably priced, and they had a plate of the day each day for 5 euros which was good.
The entertainment by the pool during the day was brilliant, we had killer pool which the 2 boys loved, colouring time for the girls, snowball bingo, water polo, the odd quiz now and again and music.
In the evening we had kiddies disco, quiz, drinking games for the adults and a drinking game for the kids ( no alcohol) bingo, the peg game, beach parties, hypnotists, and lots of others that I can't remember now at the minute! The girls were happy too on a Sunday, Wednesday and Friday I think it was as there were wee Hannah Montana,, High School Musical and Camp rock tributes which were always popular.
Cleaners were round everyday, although we were still sleeping at times so we just asked for clean towels, toilet rolls and rubbish bags now and again. We went to the Theme Park and the local markets some mornings so they were able to get in and do a decent clean while we were out.
The location of the hotel is great, although the only downfall is that the nearest beach is down a steep slpoe of steps. It's ok going down but getting back up is a problem ( well for us anyway) so we only went to the main beach about 15 mins walk away one day, and stayed at the pool the rest of the 2 weeks. We really didn't need to leave the pool to be honest and the kids preferred it also.
The only complaint that I do have about the hotel, and I did make it known to the management was while were were waiting to be picked up to go home, the cleaner was very rude and abrupt and wouldn't allow us to bring 3 of the children to the toilet, which led to one of them having a small accident which I was very annoyed about.
I have to say though that our rep was brilliant and didn't rush us out onto the bus, and had some words to the girl on the desk about it.
So all I can say is that if you have to be out of the room to catch an early flight home, go to the loo before you leave the room as they won't let you use the other ones until 10am on the dot!
Apart from this episode we would return again.
A big thanks to Amy and Tim for the great entertainment, myself and my friend really appreciated your time and effort with thhe kids.

Location was in the centre of Salou, which was buzzing til late, however the transport was EXCELLENT, buses will take you to many close resorts including Portventura and the Aqua Polis Water Park.
Entertainment in the hotel was basic, good for the children, no adult entertainment. Area was nice but would not return. Hotel opposite had full view to your balcony.Spainish and French youngers opposite vey noisey, loud music and parties.
