Stayed for an all inclusive week with my husband. Taxi transfer from Reus airport took 20 minutes and cost 32 euros. Check in was very quick by a very pleasant and friendly receptionist. Room was spotless and a good size. There was a small balcony. Travelled in October and the weather was not great. The night entertainment was very poor... More

Very generous bar measures, hot dogs, burger & chips served more or less all day from the bar... really tasty. Not surprised food is sometimes cold, use the microwave in the... More

I looked for a room for only one night before going to Port Aventura. It was not a good decision. Bed was dirty. In fact I have doubts it was really cleaned. In addition, I think it it's not the hotel for a family. People partying, and pubs in the same street.

Hotel was reasonably well positioned for the beach 5min walk if in decent shape although up a decent gradient hill so my mother struggled and ended up hiring a mobility scooter our last day.

Just got back today 3rd October. Came with Siesta holidays and stayed all inclusive here. Can't understand why some on here complain about this hotel cos it was clean thoroughly. Food was good in all areas even the more fussy eaters will still find something that they can eat too. Nice to see a hotel cater for the disabled people.... More
