We have today just returned from a few days away in Salou and stayed at the Medplaya calypso. I have been going to salou for many years and have stayed in many hotels in the area, but never this one. We wanted a cheap and cheerful few days away and for that it was perfect.
With most things there are pros and cons my pros would be, good value for money (we were half board) we could always get a full evening meal each night and finish it. We found at some of the other hotels that it would be a mix of everything and you ended up with a random selection of food on a plate. The meals here were good. Only a select few but very tasty.
Rooms very basic (no hairdryer but can put a deposit down for €20 to get one) pillows were a little hard but nothing we couldn't deal with.
The downside for us were the staff and entertainment.
We were half board, and it felt like everyone else was all inclusive. There were separate lines for the different guests in the bar area, but we found it very hard to get served because we didn't have a wristband. One guy in particular actually told me to move out of the way, and served the person behind me who was AI. It was pure rude.
The entertainment was interesting. We were pleased to see Dirty Dancing was on the night we arrived, and after it had finished we thought that was an hour we would never get back!! It was a complete mess, no structure to what was being performed and all they did was mine along to the film (badly) and wear costumes almost taking the mick. I know we wasn't going to receive a west end show, but it was very poor. I actually wasn't sure if they were being serious or not.
Kids wise the part before looked good, they knew how to look after the children and entertain them.
For a cheap holiday it's ok.
