Sol Costa Daurada
Ranked #22 of 93 Hotels in Salou
Reviewed 9 October 2013

The hotel is clean and the food is varied allowing for various tastes. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We particularly liked Rosi in the restaurant. The location is also ideal-walking distance to port aventura and to the train station and only a short walk to the beach also. The area around the hotel is safe. The entertainment is poor so we rarely stayed to watch it. The big downside is the noise. We had a room facing onto the pool and even though we were at the other end of the block we could hear the music/microphone until midnight. The corridors are also noisy and you can hear people talking in the room next door which suggests the walls are very thin. Overall we had a pleasant week but we will not return as there are better hotels out there.

Staff are very friendly, apart from Eva (Braun) in the dining room. She would of got on great between 1939 - 1945 !! The hotel is ver clean and the rooms was spotless. Only a short walk to the beach. I would recommend the hotel for others to stay, but don't expect much from the food, although a wide variety.

Having read various mixed reviews I have to say we were not disappointed.
Everywhere was clean and staff worked hard.
Only 10-15 min walk to the parks and Salou center.
We opted for half board and were impressed with the variety of food.
Big and clean pool area, there were enough sun loungers for all guests.
I feel this hotel was four star, we had a peasant stay and will return.

The hotel is fine very clean,The entertainment is very basic there are plenty of pubs and clubs within a 10 to 15 minute walk.But please keep your money safe on Sunday morning whilst out and about, in La Pineda (a short distance away) I was in a little shop only about 2 other customers in there and my purse was stolen out of my bag.Theft is rife in Spain as in other countries,I had my bag crossed over my upper body as advised ,so be safe just take enough money for your needs preferably in a money belt under your clothing.Salou was very nice with lovely beaches.

I stayed in this hotel for a week for a family holiday and leave feeling underwhelmed. Check in was drawn out and was surprised to find a surcharge for the in room safe of €27 for the week and no in room wifi which is very inconvenient. In my room the toilet was leaking, there was hair in the bath and floor and my bed was on wheels which led to a very uncomfortable sleep. The pool however was for the most part was pleasant apart from the music which consisted of explicit songs, midday at a family hotel, they reallly need to look into it as it is a spoiler. Breakfast is good with wide variety of hot and cold food, pastries are the only poor part. Dinner is for want of a better word, revolting! Food is bland and made my girlfriend physically sick. Don't eat it! The hotel is in a good location for portaventura and for the beach. I must give a mention to the entertainers who really give it 100% despite the low audiences and did offer a laugh pool side. In all this hotel does not meet its 4* rating and they really need to pick up their game and look at who their customers are and what they want because they are a mile off.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool are quite noisy, try get a room facing portaventura.

I was initially disappointed with the standard of the room. It was very basic, lacking in facilities we had become used to in Ireland. One of the drawers was dirty inside, the tv was very old and had one or two channels in english (news channels). There was a little fridge that was not plugged in and the door didn't close. In the en-suite bathroom there was a dispenser with all-in-one shampoo/soap/shower gel, the bottle had the front all worn away, even though they would be replacable bottles.

HOWEVER, when we got used to the hotel these initial complaints seemed very minor, and my opinion of the hotel soon changed!!

The pool was lovely, staff were very friendly, food was buffet style and even though some of it would not be my cup of tea, there was a large selection and always something you could eat (chips, pasta, salad). There was a lovely dessert counter, where you could help yourself to cakes and little tubs of ice cream.

The entertainment staff were brilliant and provided fun games and activities for all ages throughout the day. The nightlife in the hotel was good, with shows on beside the pool every night. We even got our photo taken with snakes around our neck! There was a kids club to keep children entertained and also a games room.

There was a small spa in which we got massages. In the spa, towels are available which can be swaped for fresh ones when dirty (20EUR, which is refunded on return of the towels).

Bedrooms have aircon and are cleaned daily (including changing bed). The location of the hotel is perfect, 10 min walk to centre of town and 10 min walk to PortAventura
Overall we had a fantastic time at this hotel and are thinking of returning next year.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool have a brilliant holiday atmosphere (sometimes music is playing by the po...
