Just had a superb two weeks here in this very comfortable and clean hotel. The rooms were apparently refurbished last year and are superb. We have never had such comfortable beds and pillows when on holiday abroad. A large shower with ample hot water at all times and well appointed bathroom is a feature. Bedding and towels are changed usually every two days and the whole ambience of the hotel is excellent.
One or two things could be improved or managed better and the main ones relate to the dining room. Not once in the whole holiday were we asked for room number or identity when entering the dining room and we said that we could have taken anyone in from outside the hotel and they could have been fed for free. There is also a rule stating that gentlemen must wear long trousers for evening meal but this was not upheld and many guests were dressed in beach wear and flip flops,not quite what you would expect in a 4 star hotel. This would be easy to control with a member of staff being present by the door and indicating in a friendly manner that the dress code must be adhered to. Surely this should be the Maitre D'Hotel's responsibility. The food quality was generally very good particularly at breakfast but the choice of veg at evening meal wasn't always the best and frequently cold (but this seems to be a Spanish thing).The only other grumble is that the safe,available in every room is chargeable at 4 euros per day. This is a rip off and gives the holidaymaker a bad impression on arrival. After all it is deemed as very important to use a safe whilst in Spain.
The local buses are brilliant and there is usually a helper based outside the hotel. We never had to wait more than 5 or 6 minutes and I must say that this is the finest service we have ever used in Spain. The beach is only 5 metres from the hotel and the prom or paseo is traffic free apart from the many bikes on hire. One can travel to Salou or to 3 kilometres beyond Cambrils on a bike without the fear of being knocked down by a vehicle.
This was our first visit to this part of Spain and we have been impressed with all aspects and will certainly come again and stay at this hotel despite our little whinges.Alan Fenton
