I stayed at the hotel at the end of May 2014 with my daughter and must say it exceeded our expectations. The hotel is very clean and well maintained and the food was good with a wide selection at all times.
I'm always a bit baffled by reviews which seem to be unhappy with the fact that staff and other guests are Spanish - it is in Spain after all! We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly, and all the guests were similarly pleasant. I also have to pay special tribute to the animacion team - while my 5 year old daughter didn't go to the kids club (which was recommended) the team were fantastic with all the kids of all nationalities at the mini disco. My daughter had a ball, and they made her very welcome.
The hotel is well located in La Pineda, about 5 minutes from a nice quiet beach, 15 minutes from Aquopolis and adjacent to a bus stop connecting to Port Aventura, Barcelona etc. We visited Port Aventura a few times and tended to taxi rather than get the bus - 5 mins versus 45 mins and around €10 rather than €5 for the two of us. Pineda itself is fairly quiet, but a nice enough place. There is a nice, clean beach and a water park and plenty of choice for eating out. Not a lot of English pubs or fish and chips, so if that's your thing probably best to stay in Salou.
All in all, I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel for families for a quiet break
