We stayed at the Magnolia Hotel for three nights after we'd been to a festival in Barcelona. We just wanted to relax and unwind and the hotel was perfect for this. The pool area is gorgeous, all decking and modern white furniture - they also have squashy beds and chairs which are super-comfy to sunbathe on! There's also a lovely spa that you can use free of charge (although treatments are extra) with a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. The rooms themselves are very modern and super-clean, the bathroom was my fave thing - it had one of those 'rainforest' showers as well as a bath. A few people on here have moaned about lack of Wifi, but who wants to check their email on holiday?! We ate in the restaurant once and it was very good value - I think it was 14 euros for three courses and the fish I had was amazing. As for the location itself - the hotel is only about 200 metres away from the massive beach. The resort of Salou itself is a bit cheap and cheerful, but we didn't really venture out much. We did have an amazing meal at a restaurant called Villa Alexander (turn left out of the hotel and walk to the end of the road, then turn right and follow the road up for about 5 -10 mins). It was quite pricey but the food was fabulous and the settings/service was impeccable. The service in the actual hotel could have been a bit better - they didn't seem to have enough staff on and the pool bar wasn't open whilst we were there, but the staff were friendly and attentive. That was probably the only negative. I didn't want to leave at the end of our stay! It was really luxurious (plus the no-kids policy was a bonus!). One tip, though: don't book through a tour operator! One lady had paid £1,000 for her stay, but we managed to get it for about 50 euros per room per night through hotels.com!
