“A good week at the Vil-La Romana in Salou”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Myself , wife and 2 teenage daughters stayed from the 25th July 14 to 1st August 14 in the Vil-La Romana on Half Board basis. Hotel was very clean and tidy and looked modern inside the hotel & room. The room had all the usual stuff ,T.V, Mini fridge, hairdryer, Shower over bath and free toiletries, but no tea or coffee facilities in room . Room booked for 4 ,2 adults & 2 teenagers. Children shared a sofa bed which looked a bit uncomfortable and also meant we had to sit on beds as no sofa our bed was 2 singles pushed together . Had a reasonable sized balcony with patio chairs and table with a view over waste land (but view will vary depending where you are).Rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels. The Hotel had 2 pools 1 indoor and 1 outside,the outside pool was very clean and well marked out regarding depth but a bit small considering the size of the hotel. Indoor pool had 2 Jacuzzis, steam room and a sauna, plus a small basic gym
The food was very good and hotel did do theme nights, but would say it was all a bit samey with not much variation. Breakfast had a variation of Continental and English with fresh fruit. As it is a buffet style hotel you can have as much as you like. There was 2 bars inside and a pool bar, one was a sports bar with TV's showing sports, pool table & darts with a selection of local beers and wine plus imported spirits. I mainly just drank the local beer and the occasional bottle of wine.
The Hotel is well located regarding location for beach(beach was very busy though) and Port Aventura theme park which were all about a 15 minute walk. The hotel is just across the road from 1 of the Port Aventura hotels. So would recommend getting this hotel rather than paying extra to stay in themed hotel. The hotel is surrounded by other hotels, but not many bars or restaurants. More down by the beach and main shopping area .
Overall a great weeks holiday and would recommend this hotel for families for price and location.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view

Just returned from a lovely holiday here with my husband and 10 year old son. It's in a great location 10-15 minutes walk from portaventura, the beach and central shops/restaurants and is a quieter area of salou. The hotel itself was very clean and tidy. We arrived at 11.30ish and luckily our room was ready though others arriving with us weren't as lucky and had to wait. We booked a suite which was worth it for the extra room rooms were cleaned and towels replaced daily though the maids paid no attention to the do not disturb light if you fancy a lazy morning! The pool was a good size and kids were allowed to jump in and play ball and they had an inflatable slide and raft in every other day plus organised volley ball games etc. The animation team were great for the kids though were too pushy if you just wanted to chill one came very close to having to have his whistle surgically removed after trying to get my husband to play water polo. The restaurant was good the usual buffet type fare with a few theme nights such as Italian, Chinese, seafood. We always found something even my picky 10 year old. Drinks aren't too pricy you can't buy wine by the glass in the restaurant but they will keep the bottle for you for the next night if you don't drink it all. Overall a good hotel in a good location.

Just returned from 11 nights at Vil-la Romana. My partner and I stayed with our two children aged 7 and 11 in October 2013 and enjoyed it so much we decided to come back this year and were not disappointed. Excellent food, lovely bar staff and the animations team around the pool were brilliant. The location is ideal too with everything including the water park only a short walk away. Will certainly be back soon.

Stayed half board for five days. The food was of a decent standard and there was more than enough choice. The rooms were large, clean and well maintained. The location was close to the theme park and beach. There are numerous bars, restaurants, shops nearby.
I believe you will be hard pressed to find better for the same price.

As a family we spent two weeks there and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our rooms were clean and beds made up daily. My children had the blankets out and they made them up as well . The rooms were air conditioned but took us a while to realise that the balcony door needs to be completely closed or it will not work. The food was also good there was a lot of choice and the restaurant staff were very pleasant. We spent a few evenings enjoying the hotel entertainment which made us laugh and incorporated children and adults. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: We had a balcony room that didn't face the pool so it was a little quieter but there was noise f...

Have just got back from a ten night stay at the villa romana- and could not praise it enough. The staff are all fantastic, friendly and very hard working.
The rooms were cleaned everyday and clean towels and the rest of the hotel was always very clean.
Bar staff- very friendly and always with a smile, high five for the kids and generally made an effort even if they could not understand what you were saying!! They also would give me milk for my toddler every afternoon and night without charge no matter how many times I tried to offer to pay which was so nice.
The entertainment team are fantastic and go out of there way to involve everyone and ensure that everyone is having a good time- both children and adults- the water aerobics session during the day is particularly entertaining and never got boring to watch. They have an inflatable slide in the pool three times a week and also do other activities such a football, water polo, ping pong.
As a vegetarian, I could always find something to eat in the restaurant for breakfast and evening, and as we ate out some evenings we were able to swap our evening meal for lunch instead. Wide selection of food available and also did a barbecue one night whenwe were there. Again, all staff in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful.
Small touches like roses for the women when coming out of the restaurant, and popcorn or candy floss for the kids shows how hard the staff at the hotel work to make everyone's holiday extra special- and was so good to see the hotel manager always around and making sure the guests were happy.
I could go on forever about how good this hotel is but would definitely recommend it to families of all ages as was absolutely superb.

Booked for a week at Vil.la Romana through Thomson. It was one of the cheapest we could find for a week in the school holidays but it was great. The food is superb for the number of people they serve. Lots of variety and freshly cooked 'show food' every night which was of very good quality. We swapped one meal in the restaurant for Tapas in the bar and this was very good. The waiter helped us out with suggestions and was very pleasant bring extra of our daughters favourite food! The kids club was very friendly and our two children (5 and 7) begged to go back.
It's a short 10min walk to the beach which is flat and easy passing many shops, restaurants and supermarkets on the way.
The evening entertainment was good but quite late (9pm for the kiddie disco), however it just lead to very nice sleep-ins!! The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Don't use the money machine however as this seems to breakdown every second day and didn't give us the correct money (something we will have to sort out on our return)
The beds are as expected, two singles and quite hard with European pillows.
David, our Thomson advisor was very helpful and suggested some great days out, not least downhill bikes which was fantastic.
Overall a great holiday and would recommend.
