I returned on monday from a 10 night stay with my youngest son at the calypso, i was slightly apprehensive after reading all the negative reviews on here, but i could not fault it, the staff were all friendly and helpful, and they all work extemely hard, our room was spotless, and as i'm a housekeeper in a hospital i know clean when i see it, towels changed everyday, fantastic shower in the bathroom. The food was excellent and my son is a fussy eater, always plenty of choice, i tried as many of the spanish dishes as i could as i don't really see the point of visiting a foreign country and eating english food. the entertainment was brilliant, always something for everyone.
my one small gripe would be the sunbed queues in the morning, but it did'nt put me off, i enjoyed swimming in both pools each day, they do get crowded at times, but not all of the time. I stayed half board, and i had to queue to pay for my drinks, but i find most places you queue at a bar, so i could see no problem there, i was happy with the plastic cups, i did sometimes get glasses as i was a payer, but prefered the plastic ones as there is no danger of cut feet from broken glasses, you have to remember this is a family hotel and young children often run around barefoot.
I am now saving up to return next year as i enjoyed myself so much, however i will go all inclusive as the price of drinks are very expensive not just in the hotel, but in all of Salou, bars and supermarkets. I would tell most people to ignore the bad reviews on here, after reading some of them i'm left wondering if they were staying at the same hotel.
