“nice hotel but very noisy at night”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This was a nice hotel, the pool was nice and the food was very good. However, my room was on a very busy road and opposite a bar, which most nights the noise went on until 3am making it impossible to sleep. I went home extremely tired. I asked to change rooms but was told that it was not possible. However, apart from lack of sleep and poor wifi reception, everything else was lovely. Rooms very clean, large balcony, great facilities and friendly staff

Good morning Mr. muffinoon,

First of all, thank you for taking the time to write about your stay at the hotel.

We are so sad to know that you went home tired! We are very sorry. The manager took note about the noise from the bar opposite the hotel; they could not make noise, and even less at this late at night.

We are glad to know that you liked the hotel.

Kind regards from all the staff.

Lovely hotel, lovely, friendly and helpful staff. We went half board and the food was excellent. Our room was kept in tip top condition during our stay. The pool area is clean & tidy and a perfect place to spend the day if you don't fancy a trip to the perfect beach across the road.
We will definitely be returning one day :)

A great hotel in a lovely Spanish resort. The service, accommodation, food and location are some of the reasons we returned to the Monica for our second visit. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble, they can't do enough for you. It's no surprise to find that people return to the Monica year after year, one gentleman we spoke to was enjoying his 14th visit!!! We will certainly come back in the future.

Thank you Monica for yet another lovely June holiday, this year we had a superior room overlooking the pool and gardens which was great. All the good reviews about this unique hotel do not do it the justice that it deserves. Wonderful staff all and every one, nothing too much trouble. The interesting selection of food in the restaurant is wonderful, always fresh and well presented and frequently replenished, it would put many larger hotels to shame.
Pool area and gardens always tranquil with free towels for your sun bed, with the bar just near by. Last but not least, thank you Albert, Hotel Monica’s genial barman who entertains alfresco dinning guests with songs from Sinatra, Perry Como and Elvis, that was a special evening, sadly for only one evening each week. Going back again next year, you bet, we love Cambrils, it’s a real Spanish resort.

my "o" my what a treat this hotel is from start to finish our holiday was perfection, the reception we received on arrival from Maria was efficient and friendly our room was spotlessly clean and overlooking the pool and garden area just what the doctor ordered as for the food it was to die for with lots of variety to suit any pallet and as fresh as could possibly be although I did agree with one comment that a small microwave could be handy for some who would like piping hot soup. congratulations to yolande and all the restaurant staff on keeping a very friendly and well run restaurant. we really loved the fact that the pool towels were free but also the fact that the no towels reserving sunbeds rule was adhered to without question {good on yer monica] the grounds and pool area were kept in emaculate condition by vladimere who also doubled up as the hotels handy man which was lucky for us as we had a small problem with our safe which he promptly took care off I could go on and on about how wonderful this little oasis in this beautifull resort of cambrills is forever but I do have a couple of minor nigles one being please monica put a mirror over the table so that my old bones don't have to stand in the bathroom for hair and make up cos the older you get the longer it takes next is the free wifi which is very much appreciated but works hit and miss in the bedroom and last of all I among many of the guests would love for you to start the music in the garden a little earlier in the season as we would have much preferred to have an after dinner drink in your relaxing ambiance than outside
We are so looking forward to seeing you all again soon

Good morning Mrs. florence f,

Thank you for your lovely words about the hotel and all the staff. We are very glad to know you enjoyed your stay at the hotel.

As for the wifi, we have had some comments about it recently. Every time that someone told us that something is wrong with the wifi connection we called our technician to fix it. Apparently, the wifi connection do not work 100% inside some rooms and we are going to take serious measures to fix it for good.

As for Haima, we tried to open it earlier years ago but it never worked; that is the reason why we can only open it in summer time.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write about the hotel.

We also hope to see you soon.

Kind regards,

Booked this hotel through thomson althought slightly on pricey side decided to plump for it mainly due to excellent reviews. been to salou before years ago but not too keen. however cambrils is totally different quite laid back quiet when we were there lovely promenade to walk for several kilometres in either direction traffic free. thunderstorm one night and a couple of cloudy days but overall good weather.short flight hotel family run public areas airy and spotless room and facilities all that were required. no bullbait at breakfast or dinner very calming atmosphere greeted warmly by all waiting staff. selection at breakfast was plentiful to say the least and food at dinner was always of a very high standard complimentary wine at breakfast if you wanted it and moscatel and nuts for a dessert aperatif. loungers in pool area never a problem. easy to use bus to get to reus salou tarragona port aventura etc train to barcelona also available. would certainly return to both this hotel and cambrils for a relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings

Room Tip: superior rooms slightly bigger and have pool/garden view

Good morning Gipster69,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay in Cambrils.

We are very glad to know that we reached your expectations, especially with food.

As for the calming atmosphere, the hotel has more than 3000m2 on common areas which help us to avoid overcrowding.

It is very nice to know that you are going to come back.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights to finish of a business trip. This hotel was lovely. The location is 1 street from the beach (40 m) and bang on centre of the resort. There are numerous restaurants and bars within a minutes walk and I noticed that the airport bus stops on seafront 30m from the hotel. The breakfast each morning was very good with a hot & cold buffet. I can only recommend breakfast as we never ate there. The pool area was very nice with plenty of beds in the garden and the bar was close at hand. This hotel is probably more suited to couples as the kids pool was very small and there are very few kids about. My only reservation is that there should be a law passed in Spain that no one over 60 should partake in public topless sunbathing!

Good morning Mr. AlatCarrick,

First of all, thank you for taking the time to write about your stay at the hotel and our breakfast; although it is a pity you did not have our dinner buffet.

As for the topless, we can only say that it is not allowed in the hotel at any age :)

As for the kids, although there are some families in high season, the hotel does not have so many rooms for families.

Thanks again for your comment.

We hope to see you again.

Kid regards,
