We have been visiting this hotel since 1995, (quite often twice a year) when my parents introduced us to it.
I have never written a review as I feel the amount of people who holiday here, usually people like ourselves who visit regularly say it all.
I am writing this as somehow on trip advisor I was taken into the terrible reviews, which I have never read before!
Well I was so shocked I can't tell you. I am one very hard person to please, I am picky and sometimes told I am a snob!
The people who have written these reviews must of stayed in a different hotel because I can not relate to the majority of their complaints/upsets. Particulary about rude staff, they have always been pleasant friendly and unbelievably helpful. This is from Pepe on reception (who used to be a dining room waiter) to the bar staff and chambermaids.
If I have ever had cause to complain i.e. hard beds, more pillows needed, we have just reported it to reception and the problem was sorted within a couple of hours. If you don't ask you don't get, simple!
Regarding the food - well there is always something good to eat even if your picky like me or faddy like my youngest daughter who lives off ham! The dining room staff work very hard to keep it turning over so you dont have to wait long at its busiest times. I will say that the last half hour for breakfast produces a queue as people want to stay in bed longer, but this queue soon diminishes.
The hotel is immaculately clean, we have never seen it dirty. When it is windy the reception can become filled with sand but what do you expect with a hotel that is on the beach! There are ladies continually sweeping the sand out of reception and off the stairs.
The entertainment has always been great from the many daily activities for all ages to the different acts on in the evening. Granted it will not be to everyones taste, but again there is something for everyone. The only evening I don't like it is karaoke night, a pet hate of mine! This is solved by going for a stroll along the Pineda Drink to La Pineda itself were we will browse the shops and have a couple of quiet drinks. Yes the hotel does get noisy when the entertainment is on but that is what I associate with a good family holiday.
All in all this is a great family holiday, a brilliant hotel sitting on the beach within close proximity to a water park and a fantastic theme park. Tarragona, Salou and other places of interest are a short bus ride away. Barcelona is about an hours drive away, well worth a visit but we advise you take the train, bus or coach, don't make the mistake we made and take the car!!!
