We have just come back from 2 week holiday, the hotel is fantastic really clean, friendly helpful service, the best location walk out directly onto the beach. We went with family adults and children, the kids aged 6 and 3 loved the kids club and the girls who ran it Sam, Tasmin and Mandy were brilliant, they went most days closed on Thurs and Sat, and they also had a few evening parties in which they had great fun. Went on a couple of excursions, word of warning my eldest son and 2 neices went to Porta ventura and had to queue so long to get on the big rides they only managed to get on 3 rides during the day. A brilliant day out was the waterpark in la Pineda just 5 mins walk away it was suitable for all ages with a lovely large section for little ones, much better than I had thought and had seen on pictures, they also loved the dolphin show, you do have to pay 4 euro per sun bed but worth it if you are spending the day and if you are there for 2 weeks you can pay just 5 euros each extra and go back another day. My husband and son went to Nou Camp which they really enjoyed and would recommend. The buses were really easy to catch from just outside the hotel so its nice to visit local places like Cambrilles which has a market on a wednesday morning, Salou, Tarragona which has a lovely old town. If you dont fancy trips the hotel put on their own activities all day, water polo, football, shuffleboard etc, We went all inclusive which was great had a really nice selection of ice creams and drinks including branded drinks like bacardi, pimms, southern comfort etc. The reps in the hotel were excellent really helpful and willing to go that extra mile for you. Would highly recommend for a great family holiday.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 315 which over looked entertainment which was loud but finished about 11.30pm othe...

Firstly, I must stress that this hotel must be described as a family hotel, The rooms are basic, without a fridge or tea/coffee making facility, but adequate for the price. All rooms are cleaned everyday. We stayed a week and had a room on the 1st floor, overlooking the beach and in view of the pool area, this proved to be a noisy location due to the hotel entertainment and families returning to their rooms late at night. All in all we had a very enjoyable weeks stay, the beach was wonderful,just fall out the front door and your on the beach, the staff were kind and friendly. There are two shops behind the hotel where you can buy all your beach equipment, papers,water and cold british beers. Air conditioning is free, however you have to pay to hire a safe key for 20 euro`s. Please read the small print on the terms and conditions provided by your travel agent as their is a room tax payable when booking in. La Pineda is a fabulous location to take the kids, they will LOVE it.

Room Tip: Do not ask for a low floor room as you will have to put up with the noise from hotel entertainers an...

Positives: great location, right on the beach, rooms decent enough size, quiet (positive if you like that sort of thing), super enthusiastic entertainment staff, decent enough range of local drinks served- can pay extra for brand labels.

Negatives: bar staff not too friendly if you're all inclusive, but seem to bend over backwards for those paying for drinks, entertainment a bit boring, lifts have a mind of their own so if you're on a higher floor it can take a while to get to your room, lots of flies in the restaurant, food gets a bit repetitive (I never want to see another hot dog again) but it is yummy.

I've read a bit about the pool being too small, but we visited the end of June before the masses and the pool was fine. My only observation would be that there isn't really any shade -which is great if you want to just lay out in the sun all day, otherwise I can't complain.

All in all, it's a three star hotel and you get what you pay for. It's a nice enough place and did our family of nine (seven adults, two kids) well for the week. The resort if La Pineda is very quiet which suited us down to the ground.

Very nice family hotel no complaints at all
buffet food was very nice and with a 2 year old we still found something for him to eat every night
alot of people reviewed about the rooms near the music at night it is loud but stops at 12
just ask for a room at the otherside but the view is not great
we went half board but it would be worth looking at the all in as drink at the bar is expensive.
entertainment at night is very good at the entertainment staff work extremely hard
beach is beside the hotel and the water is very shallow
free wifi in reception

The beach is fantastic, food poor,not enough entrainment during the day,when it rains there's nothing to do, the all inclusive is a joke you have to pay for certain ice creams and they ran out had to wait four days before new stock came in and certain cocktails you had to pay for ,have been on many all inculusives and this was not all inclusive,felt let down big time,will not becoming back
