I stayed with my 14 year old son - like many, it's proximity to the theme parks was key. The organisation at reception was truly awful. Arrived at 11am, I think a couple of flights arrived at the same time. Took an hour to get to the front of the queue only to be told that the room would be ready at 2pm - Bearing in mind the size of the hotel, you would have expected more than 2 (very impolite) staff members.
The room was clean and spacious, but as it's primarily a family hotel you have to expect a degree of noise...it's not a hotel for a quiet break.
The hairdryer was about as effective as a whisper. Take your own. We also took a travel kettle - I need coffee straight away in the morning! I know you don't go on holiday to watch telly, but sometimes its nice to have 10 minutes to yourself before dinner ..all you can get is CNN..we took a laptop and used the free wi-fi and the odd CD/DVD.
Food is a matter of personal choice. We found the breakfasts varied and good, but the evening meals were foul. Acres of stuff swimming in grease. Yes, there was an extensive salad bar, but it was the same every night, as were the sliced potatoes in grease and the cold leathery chips! We found out on the last night that you could exchange an evening meal (if you were half board) for tapas in the bar - much better. If you fancy a trip to Barcelona and don't want to do a package trip you can get the train from Salou or the little station at Port Adventura. The latter has no ticket office, but you can buy one on the train. We didn't bother with the outdoor pool - couldn't get near the indoor one for kids. The hotel initially told us the indoor one was for adults only and it would have been nice to have one quiet area........
Had I gone with smaller children, it would have been perfect, but we just used it as a base to go elsewhere in the end.
