Reviewed 10 February 2013

Arrived at hotel immediatly allocated room and wrist band for all inclusive. Good size room, clean and secure. All inclusive included all normal local beers and spirits. Food choice changed every day. Ice creams available for children all day. Good base to enjoy a walk through the shops to the beach. Road train outside hotel linked to the beach and port aventura.

went to Calypso in July 2011 and 2012, allready booked for july 2013 (3 adults) ! don't really have any negative experiences in this hotel ! In 2012 my wife had a foot-problem (swollen) and I got a wheelchair at once from the lobby. Food-entertainment-service-rooms-swimming pools-staff...... fantastic ! see you back in july 2013 ! We're Belgian and LOVE to stay with all those Brittish people.

I'm 19 and my boyfriend is 20, we came here on our first holiday together in august 13-20. As I have never been to salou before I was very sceptical ,specially the reviews I had read before I came, some of which were apauling . From my experience I think some of the reviews on here have just been over the top and things arnt as bad as they are made to seem. We arrived miday and was checked in straight away without any problems . Most staff were plesant but some were slightly rude .first of all our room was in the calypso 2 builing on the sixth floor, which we had requested. The lift only went to the 5th floor but we didn't mind it was only o few more steps. The room was really quiet even though tere was a pool below us it wasn't noisy. The rooms had great airconditioning and shower ect. Plenty of room for storing clothes and a tv with a few english channels. The maids were plesant we had clean towels and our beds made everyday . The only complaint I would have about it was the plastic curtain on the balcony doors which blocks the sun out created a slight burning smell when got to hot. Next the food the dinning area was set out lovely the food was average just like any other spanish hotels always a variety and ure bound to find something that u like. The alfresco terrace was lovely for a miday snacks with a variety of fresh meats cooked in front of u . Although one time we was served with a undercooked piece which we took back and they apolagised and gave us a fresh piece. Yes there was a few flys and wasps around but that's to be expected we get that back in england. The entertainment was brill always activities to do for children and adults in the daytime. They also had brilliant entertainment on the evening even though we spent it out a few nights.The pools were clean and if u wantedaa sunbed it was best to get one in the morning even though there are still plenty left in the afternoon. The location is fab just a 15 min walk to town centre and beach and plenty to do in the sarrounding area . There is a bus stop outside for u to get to portaaventura. We went to aquapolillis waterpark and the house of illusion they were fantastic. Overall we had a great holiday and are planning to come back next year.

My fiancé and his family love this hotel and at first I was sceptical but now I love it. The reception staff all know us, the restaurant manager always shakes hands with us, as does the bar manager and even the hotels president and his son as well as one of the bar staff are now Facebook friends! I love this hotel and can't wait to go back and SOON!

2 adults and 5 children ages 4,12,15,15 &16.spread over 3 rooms.only 2 lifts in building 1 where the reception is but just about managed.rooms good but cramped with 3 beds.cleaners were good although shouting to each other constantly and very loudly every day did start to get to us.we were above the main restaurant but didnt mind the banter from below.alfresco for snacks were great in between meals but it only lasted the 1st weekend so by the monday you had to go to the main restaurant for main meal times with snack times in between.wouldve been good if they informed guests before hand!food was then less options with most days mis-matched to make a proper meal.everything started being packed up for winter which wasnt pleasant.drink machines were hit and miss with being turned off randomly(mostly off).most staff looked fed up with guests too.only 1 lady seemed to smile and was very hard working around the main show room and the gentleman in the restaurant who would re-open a section of tables to have our meals.i would never go this late in season again(13th oct for 1 week)so maybe it wouldve been better before then?

we stayed at the calypso hotel in salou from 27th october to 3rd november. what a nightmare. everywhere in salou was closed or closing down due to the end of season. we were booked into the calypso hotel for one week. all week we had no entertainment and no background music in the hotel. the food was cold and disgusting, chicken nuggets and fries, breakfast , dinnertime and evening meal times. left overs being recycled. when l complained about the food l was told that due to the hotel closing down for the season they were using up stock in the freezers. lt was at all times ineditble. The rooms were ok but the double bed was two camp style beds put together. walls were that thin you could hear everything going on either side of you. lf all the above was not sufficient for a complaint the pool area was more like a building site.the pool was dirty with plastic cups and leaves in. bins were not emptied and there was rubbish lying about , due to this we were constantly covered in flies and wasps. Gents toilets were blocked so you had to queue for the cubicles in the only toilets in the bar area. Sick on the floor that must have been there for about 3 days. drunken yobs running about all day and night. l could go on for ever, this experience left us disappoint. we did not even have a thomson representiative all week.
