Unsurprisingly, this was a hyper "managed" experience, which will enrage you if you dislike crowds or waiting in line or having to stick to time slots for eating. Communal areas looked very impressive but the room itself was unexceptional - adequate, I guess. Just one pillow each is a bit mean, though. Buffet dinner and breakfast served the typical giant...

We booked one night at April. Spending 40 min at the line to check in. Breakfast was O.K If you arrive with a train don't stay at this hotel. You need to take shuttle from El Paso and it can take long time... You can enter the park at 9:30 but they stop you 100m from the gate and don't...

Booked this hotel on Trivago including park tickets. Trivago directed us to a site hoteling.com which was related to low cost holidays which went bust the week before we went. I called the hotel before we went and no they said our booking was fine. I then emailed them in their website to confirm the booking which they did so...

Our family from Sydney (kids aged 11-15 yrs) recently stayed at Hotel River Gold at PortAventura. We all had such a fun time and really found the hotel to be a convenient, comfortable and charming (in a theme-park-kind-of-way) place to stay. The rooms were big enough for our large family and provided the base we needed. The buffet style meals...

I was going to put 'Average' but the Good Lady suggested I was being miserable. On balance she is right. This is our second stay at Gold River and, last year, we stayed at Lucy's Mansion so - maybe - I was being a little unfair. We're a family of six - so had two rooms they stick together. One...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just an hour from Barcelona, with direct access to the Far West area in PortAventura, this hotel is the perfect destination for family holidays. It recreates a Far West town in the grip of gold fever, where water is the protagonist with immense swimming pools simulating the twists and turns of a river. Journey back more than 200 years and visit Sullivan, the most flourishing city in the Far West, and enter 1803 when Lucy Callaghan found the gold nugget next to the Gold River. Designed to amaze visitors and provide them with a totally new experience, the exclusive facilities of Hotel Gold River combine history with cutting-edge technology, all aimed at maximum comfort for our guests. With unlimited admission to the park throughout the entire stay! The rooms, divided over different buildings, form a reconstruction of the most important parts of the town: Main Street with wooden bungalows on the outskirts, the main hotel The City Hall, abandoned railway wagons and Lucy's Mansion, a 5***** hotel inside Hotel Gold River itself. In 2015 the 20th anniversary of the opening of doors PortAventura is met and to celebrate in style with family, friends or partner, we expect you to live unforgettable moments. This year PortAventura presents the new how will offer its Soleil Cirque in the Resort, Amaluna. Furthermore, in 2016 Ferrari Land will open in Europe PortAventura resot to offer a real race track, the highest and most rapid vertical accelerator in Europe and the first luxury hotel themed for the first time in the history of the Ferrari brand, including other surprises. ... more   less
