Booked a week’s self catering for 7 of us for £1200 from Luton, which we thought was a good deal through Portland. Had to wait two hours in the bar at the hotel on arrival until our rooms were ready at 2pm, which was a bit of a disappointment, but allowed us immediately to be introduced to the ‘entertainment.

’…Same old stuff, rifle shooting, French boules, cocktail games, darts, killer pool, Archery…etc, etc, etc. Rooms? Basic: in fact the whole hotel needs a bit of a refurb. They are really winging it with a 3+ rating; this is no more than two stars in my experience.

Indoor pool was used twice by us; …too small for the amount of guests, however the hot-tub was great! Main pool was impressive but freeeeeeeeeeeeezing! Reception staff were great. We upgraded to half board for 405 euros for 3 adults 3 kids & a baby. Glad we did as we were pleasantly surprised at the quality for the price.

Salou was dead with unlimited choices to eat so definitely worth the money. Restaurant staff? A lso fab. Bar prices? Average, but make good use of a happy hour two hours a night. Evening entertainment? Same old same old. Mini disco game, bingo, acrobat-plate spinners, etc, etc. Entertainers worked hard but let down by a ‘member of the team’ who we all know from previous reviews & has now been suspended.

All in all, a very average holiday that was just worth the price, kids loved it which is all that matters to me. Would I go again? No – but only because now we have stayed there we know there are many better quality hotels for the price in the Mediterranean. If you are looking for somewhere in Salou, these apartments are much better than ‘Festival Village’ in Cap Salou, but in no way compare to other 3+ hotels I’ve stayed at in Ibiza & Tenerife.
