Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We (group of 3 girls) stayed here for 3 nights. The location is perfect as you are within walking distance to lots of restaurants (which you will need as the food here could use some improvement's), bars, clubs, shops and the beach.

The food was pretty much the same thing everyday. Nothing had much flavor and the hot food wasn't kept hot at all (unless you go as soon as the restaurant opens). The breakfast is probably the best meal of the day.

The rooms are a decent size with a big bathroom and good shower, however the air con only seemed to have 1 setting and there weren't any instructions on how to use it (or a remote). There were no English channels at all on the TV which was a first for me.

There were always plenty of sunbeds available at the pool and the cocktails in the hotel bar are very nice and well priced ($5.70 each). We didn't have any issues with the staff other than most of them spoke very little English. The animation guy was the only staff member who seemed to be genuinely bothered about making your experience memorable, and he carried the entertainment all by himself.

Dear Chloe, Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We note that the buffet has not been to your full satisfaction and we are surprised because the variety of cuisine is really quite wide, from show cooking to hot and cold buffet with various specialties. KInd regards, The Hotel Management

I would most definitely recommend Hotel Best San Francisco! 2 friends and myself stayed here for a 3 night stay at the end of September 2022, the hotel was clean and had plenty of facilities, the bar offered a variety of drinks and the bed and breakfast was fairly decent too at only an extra £3pp for the 3 days. The rooms were fairly small for 3 people to share one room but we managed nevertheless, and the housekeepers endured the room was clean and tidy, they also came back later in the day to ensure the room was clean as we were still in bed the first time they came round. The location is also great as it’s very close to the strip and many nice bars and restaurants close by.

The hotel is situated in a great location which was a huge bonus. 5-15 mins walk away from beaches, shops, clubs and pubs. It only took 30mins to walk to old town and around 35mins to walk to the parks. The rooms were very clean, cleaned daily with new towels provided. We also liked that there was some drinks left for us in the fridge and the little toothbrushes, shampoo, shower gels, shower caps etc were a nice touch. The rooms were quite small and a little difficult to move around in. The air con wasn't great and very noisy.
The hotel had many sun loungers but the pool area is too small for the size of the hotel and we often couldn't get a lounger even though the life guard was taking towels of unused beds away.
The cocktails were nice and very cheap!
After reading comments about the food we opted for bed and breakfast and were so glad we did! The majority of the cooked food was cold. There was a microwave in the dining area but who wants to microwave their breakfast!?! I mentioned this to our rep in conversation and she said that apparently Spanish people aren't used to having things piping lot 'like the British'. I might understand that, but who on earth would appreciate cold potatoes??
Saying that, the chef was making omelettes, fried eggs and pancakes everyday and they were very tasty.
Overall it was a nice hotel but due to the size of the pool area and food I'm not sure I'd stay here again.

I am currently in this hotel and leave tomorrow, from arrival the lady on reception was so abrupt and after a long journey that's not how you expect to be greeted. The rooms are small and beds clean . In our room the air conditioning was just not good enough it hardly worked at all ,air conditioning is something we like to have on holiday and always choose this option . The toilet has an overflowing cistern where water is constantly dripping 24/7 ,the shower water does not flow away to the point you are in standing water and on a couple of had to turn of the shower to stop flooding the whole bathroom. On our second day when they tried repairing the toilet they replaced the tap in the bathroom sink as it was so difficult to turn on because of a build up of lime scale . Restaurant food was luke warm unless it came if the griddle and tables near walls had food splashed up them I suggest the tables to be moved slightly away from the walls , and the waitresses in there should really learn how to smile I understand how busy they are but I have never come across such miserable looking waitresses in my many travels. The entertainment was very limited and 90% was aimed at Spanish and other guests felt as we did that the hotel revolved around the needs of the Spanish. We have stopped in Best hotels before which was part if the reason we chose this one so please don't be put of by the chain of hotels by my review it's just I feel the management of this hotel need to improve things here . I would advise anyone looking for a good holiday vibe to avoid this hotel and spend your hard earned money on a hotel where you feel like a guest and not a hindrance......

Just returned home from a long weekend with a few friends, having had a very pleasant stay at the Hotel Best San Francisco! The rooms were very clean and spacious and the beds very comfortable!

The whole building was kept spotless and the staff were on the whole very friendly.

The bar was very well stocked with good selection of quality local and international branded drinks and reasonably priced for a hotel. The staff were really friendly too!

The pool area was lovely, the pool itself was actually quite warm and there were plenty of sunbeds available at all times of the day (but our visit was outside of school holidays) .

The animation guy (I unfortunately cannot remember his name) deserves a special mention as he worked tirelessly to get people involved in his activities and always had a smile on his face!!

The only criticism I have was the food, although there was always plenty of choice and we never went hungry, the food (apart from the items fresh from the grill) was never particularly warm and quite repetitive.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and some of our group have already rebooked for later in the summer! For the price we paid particularly this hotel is a well located find!

This is our second time in this hotel (we were there for a week in June) The hotel is clean, in a great location. The rooms are cleaned every day with fresh towels, 2 Queen size beds. Complimentary shower gel, shampoo & body milk etc.
The staff are friendly. Good food in the restaurant - we are pescatarian and there was fish on every night, also, we love the Mediterranean diet of salads and fruit etc. However, there was one thing that really annoyed me and that was the loud music played in the pool area every day, from about 10am till 7pm. Now I'm not a killjoy, I love music & sing in a choir. I asked a few times for it to be turned down a little . Sometimes it was and then soon back up again. So if you want to relax by the pool reading or listening to an Audio book, not possible.
It was like being in a disco.

Where to start the positives nice clean hotel,cleaners come everyday very polite and helpful.good view from balcony paid 30 euros to upgrade 1st room at the back facing bins.we stayed in room 225.entertainment guy was excellent at involving people to play along with music etc good with children.balcony room was a sun trap.5-10mins to beach,good food at uncle sams just down the road.wifi worked ok.bar man was excellent drinks reasonably priced could sit inside or outside to get view of pool.
Now the downside
Small woman in reception very rude was arguing with the young man over which rooms to give us,jittering away in her own language.air conditioning?… was ok once we got the hang of it switch in corner of room on or off if you put it on in room its lovely and cold then you go to balcony it red hot sweating you either need to be inside or out confusing at best shower very noisy,key cards work 1st day then not visited reception a few times to get them to work even asked a cleaner to help. Hotel not catered for all nationalities mostly spanish,russian and god knows what else we were only scots in the place asking things was like asking a brick wall,didnt even understand the english.entertainment didnt come on till 10.00.acts few and far between catered more for the spanish kids we were there a week seen 2 acts rest was childrens games in spanish
Would we come again probably not salou ok but not enough entertainment pubs dont have anything till by 10.00pm .
Overall holiday was ok not the best and we,ve been a lot of places in spain.

This hotel is in a good location, it's clean and reception and bar staff are pleasant enough. The food and the restaurant staff are horrendous. The meat is inedible, poor choice and quality. The 'chef's' are miserable and clearly not interested in quality. My son was served a piece of chicken which was completely raw at the end, this had been 'cooked' on the fryer in front of him by one of the miserable 'chefs'. Everything cooked on the friers is covered in oil. I complained to the lady on the door and the chef and was offered a other piece of chicken, no apology or realisation of the danger of what they had done. The lady on the door of the restaurant is rude and only friendly to Spanish people, she doesn't seem to speak English so it's very hard to complain or explain things to her. We basically ate bread for dinner for 10 days, my son's ate chips for the first few nights but by the end of the week even the chips were inedible (hollow fries with no potato in the majority of them) The food really ruins what could be a nice hotel due to its location. They play inappropriate music at the pool, rap music with explicit content including sex, drugs and swearing. I'm glad I wasn't there with young children, the life guard and 'entertainment' staff are oblivious to the fact that the music is inappropriate. The evening entertainment is pathetic.

Just got back from a unexpected great mini break 5 nights bed and breakfast which was a real bargain price so I was not expecting such a good hotel, breakfast was everything you could want from freshly made pancakes and omelettes to a morning mimosa. Perfect location very close to beach and shops. Friendly members of staff from reception to entertainment around the pool. Only thing I could say to make improvements would be to replace towels and bedding as was feeling a little old, I wanted to write this reviews because before we went away I checked trip advisor and no reviews for this hotel since 2019

We book this hotel last min as the ones on PortAventura got sold out.
On arrival I notice One of the pillows stinks lucky had extra One on wardrobe. Beds are uncomfortably you can feel the springs. Room
Is tiny.

Bath towel is like sandpaper. The shower floor needs repair.
The only good thing in the room is air conditioning and shower pressure but the noise made by the shower is surreal and amazing for migraines.
Food there’s no early breakfast so if Having an early flight forget about breakfast you will lose your money as they don’t refund. The quality of the food it’s horrible it’s the cheapest quality ever the only good thing is the desserts and the prosecco in the morning that will try to make you forget the nightmare.
