We arrived at the hotel at 8 am and the man at the reception was very polite and helpful and even though check-in is after 3pm we were able to book in and even get our room at the time. Not only that, the man informed us that we had made a mistake in booking and we should have specified that of our group of 4 persons one was aged 12 which classified as a child and we were reimbursed with 97 euros.
By this time we were more than happy to have chosen this hotel. When we walked out of the main hall we walked into a town in the far west, it looks like a movie set. Everything looks authentic and the hotel is divided into two floor units. From the outside they look like cowboy buildings but once you walk in the corridors and rooms they are very well decorated.
Our room was large and had a large plasma tv. The beds were comfortable, and a small kitchenette with a fridge and the bathroom was a good size and clean.
Breakfast was buffet and catered for all tastes and was plentiful and on checking in you can opt at what time you want to attend so we never had to wait more than 5 mins to be seated.
Your card can be used as the door key and as the pass to enter portaventura which is included in the price.The hotel has its own private entrance to the park for clients of the hotel. And it only take a couple of minutes walking to get to the park from the hotel.
There are three swimming pools and there were always enough sun beds to go around.
I highly recommend this hotel and will without a doubt return.
