“Guapa! ”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Beautiful, friendly hotel which is a
Thomson Family Resort.

Staff are friendly and efficient. Hotel is clean and comfortable.

Food is good, just one restaurant though and the buffet system does get a bit repetitive. Having said that, it is all freshly cooked, they do vary the dishes and once a week is Spanish night. Yum!

This is our second visit and it won't be our last - two hour flight (from
Birmingham), 20 minute transfer, fabulous location and we're made to feel 'part of the family'. What's not to like?

Just had a great time in Salou. The Avenida is a great family hotel, with plenty to keep children busy. Good clean environment and lovely pool,(but get up early for sun beds).The Thomson Team were friendly and helpful. A short walk to a lovely beach and shops and restaurants. All in all a really good and safe family resort.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool are best,as the road side rooms face a road that is a main route and is used t...

Just returned from the Avenida. The rooms were nice, clean and a good size. Our view was not the best as we were overlooking the road. This road was very noisy at night with groups of people returning from a night out at 3am. Didn't have 1 good nights sleep due to this.
Had to get up early to get a sun lounger, really hate having to line up to put towels on beds but had to do this as it was the only way if you wanted to spend the day by the pool.
The pool was really nice and was fab for all ages, the life guard was attentive also.
My main disappointment was the Thomson entertainment/reps. We usually like to get involved with activities around the pool but we never really knew what was going on. Also entertainment at night was inside and very poor, no stage outside. Inside there was not enough room for all and there are loads of pillers blocking your view. We ended up having drinks outside but no atmosphere due to no music or entertainment out there. Not sure why this is, every hotel we have ever been to previous has always entertained on an outdoor stage with plenty of room for guests to sit comfortably and enjoy.
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, can't fault them. It is just Thomson that need to sort out their entertainment staff and find some with a bit more talent and enthusiasm.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a pool view.

The hotel it's self is outstanding. Amazing reception staff, beautiful rooms and a top class poolside area. The Thomson's Holiday Advisor team were really friendly (Matt, Rose and Ashleigh) but the entertainment reps Dom and Rachel only spoke or acknowledged you if you joined in every activity. I have never known a hotel so cliquey and hostile. The menu choice was good and Tea (excuse my Yorkshire way of saying Dinner) was tasty. Breakfast was not edible. The bacon wasn't cooked and the sausage was pink.

Room Tip: High up room either facing main road or pool.

We stayed at the Golden Avenida for a week with my partner and little boy. The hotel is lovely and the pool is brilliant for the kids. The sunbed issue is abit mad but we didn't let this ruin out holiday. Our room was lovely over looking the swimming pool which was great! Entertainment was also good and Dom is amazing at his job! As for kids club Kim was amazing nothing was ever to much for her. She managed to get my shy son (who won't go to pre school without us leaving him in tears!) into kids club everyday. She also made an effort to speak to us when she saw us around the pool and even on her day off in the street aswell as she did with other people around the hotel! She is a credit to the company! Thank you!
As for the holiday overall we had a fantastic holiday and would be sure to return again.

Stayed here with my 4 and 2 year old in june and it was fairly well suited to our needs with young family. I wouldnt have wanted to stay here with out them.
Staff were excellent, found reception and restaurant staff very helpful. Rooms were a good setup with separate room for the kids allowing us to stay up abit longer after bedtime. Noise was an issue on a couple of nights due to the other parents lack of control over screaming kids late at night but not the fault of the hotel. Food did become quite repeatative but was fairly good although just warm alot of the time.
Salou was ok, not the best med resort i've stayed in and could be abit too much at times with tat shops and touts. But facilities were ok and a nice front along the beach which was great for a walk along instead of the hotel entertainment, and the kids burnt some energy off in the playgrounds along the way.
I wouldnt stay again in Salou, but just because I like to see new places unless its outstanding then I may go back.
Didnt bother much with the full thomson experience, but the other kids seemed to enjoy the kids club and pool side entertainment.
The sunbed game is in full force at this hotel, luckily we met a nice family from yorkshire who put our towels down for us but on a number of occasions we saw reserved sun beds all day and nobody use them, then turn up at 5 to collect the towels, just plain inconsiderate. You had to be down in the queue at 730 to have any chance. Was abit ridiculous and one of the worse places i've stayed for this if not the worst.

An excellent hotel overall. The staff were very friendly, and a special mention to Ana in the restaurant, was very friendly.

The noise was quite bad with people running around the corridors most nights, however this is not the hotels fault.

The food in the restaurant was good, and the entertainment was fantastic around the pool. And I would recommend the kids club.

Room Tip: Poolside room if possible.
