We organised independent holiday flying with aer lingus to barcelona and then getting the coach from El Prat to Cambrils. After a smooth trip we arrived at the Olimar II to be told you are just in time for lunch, we'll look after your cases. So off we went and were we in for a treat, what great food! We had booked full board with the intention of possibly being in the hotel for lunch on the occasional day and maybe eating out a couple of nights - oh no the food was so good we were drawn back like moths to a flame for every lunch and dinner. So after that we went to our room which was in block C (the hotel is arranged in 3 blocks aroud the central courtyard with the pool). Great one bedroom apartment overlooking the pool, we had a lovely long balcony with 2 sets of patio doors 1 from the bedroom and 1 from the living room. More than enough room for a family, the couch turns into 2 full single beds, and the beds in the main bedroom were comfortable but were 2 singles pushed together. There was a full fridge (we just put water beer and cava in it - he he). The rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard and beds/towels changed every day. The whole hotel and grounds were kept extremely well, I saw the pool cleaned every morning and the results from the pool testing were posted on the wall beside the doors through to the bar. There were few problems getting a sun lounger with none of the usual bun fight or reserving, probably because the beach is 5 minutes away and is excellent.
The entertainment in the complex is mainly aimed at the Spanish crowd, as the guests in the hotel are predominantly Spanish however this didn't detract from our experience because cheesy cabaret is cheesy cabaret. It was all very pleasant and we had great fun trying to play bingo. If you are going with kids this hotel is fantastic, the animacion guy Micha is great and brilliant with the kids and will try and get them all involved. Also I was very impressed that the pool was closed off with a proper safety fence every night (although the wee round kiddies pool wasnt).
We had a fantastic holiday at the Olimar ii and would recommend it to anyone with kids, defo not for the party crowd as you could hear a pin drop after about 1am. Cambrils is a great town and very pretty and not too commercialised. We loved walking along the front and the marina and also loved the beautiful golden sandy beaches. Cambrils has loads of play areas for kids and don't miss the fishermans park.
