“Family of four summer hols”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

The hotel was amazing we were pleasantly suprised with the room . We were initially let down as we arrived at 10am to be told checkin was between 12 and 2 .We were eventually given our room after 3.30 as we had been awake since 3am this was a big let down.The hotel did offer champagne as a goodwill gesture. There was a choice of three pools all with snackbars,we used pool 3 as it wasnt too deep(i would check out all and decide).We were quite lucky to get loungers everyday but in peak season i dont think there will be enough.We were impressed with the bottled water available along with the food and drink in the snackbars and restuarants.We couldnt fault the staff and found them helpful and friendly.I would definately recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: We had a family room in the second hotel number2049 it was quiet ,on the ground floor but near to ev...

WE LOVED IT.we stayed in hotel 1. we found the hotel really clean and the staff very friendly. the food was fantastic with plenty of choices. the rooms were spacious and very comfortable.it is only a short distance to a lovely beach. everywhere is flat and very good for walking . we really loved it and cant wait till we can go again early september 2015 for our honeymoon.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the pool also have sea views.

We travelled from Manchester to the estival park hotel through Thomson holidays, the experience from start to finish was excellent. On arrival at the hotel we were made welcome and as on an all inclusive package were able to start enjoying ourselves straight away. The rooms are ample, (there was 2 adults and one child in our group) and clean, with laundry changed daily. The food and drinks were excellent and I would say that all inclusive has a lot to live up to after staying here. The staff are attentive and although some reviews say staff are rude and a smile wouldn't go a miss, well a smile back and please and thank you don't go a miss! The entertainment team also work their socks off, with a variety for all. We used the kids club once and our daughter enjoyed it however she was happier in the pool. Both my husband and I regret not taking sports wear as the facilities included were excellent although I did use the indoor water facilities once and enjoyed it. The water park was an added bonus in our two weeks there we spent around 5 days there using it to its max....Big kids r us! We also did the Dolphin experience with an added charge- highly recommend this. If you are looking for more thrills Port Aventura is a must!

Room Tip: I am glad I never booked in Salou it's self, a bit too busy and over developed for our liking...

As we are coming to the end of our two weeks holiday I thought I could now give a honest and balanced review of the Estival Park hotel 1 , so here it is in nice easy to view sections. (I've completed loads of reviews over the years but needed to set up a new account on this app)
LOCATION. Very good right next to the beach which if you ignore the cargo ships and industrial site over to your left is nice and clean. The water park is only 10 mins away and as we had two week passes we visited it on a regular basis and loved it. Also not far from Tarragona , only 20 mins on the bus, with shops and lots of Roman history.
SERVICE. Ok with no real issues. As mentioned in other reviews rooms are cleaned daily and to a good level. Restaurant service was good , polite and quick. Bar staff need to try and smile more and perhaps make a bit more of an effort with some clearly trying and others not.
FOOD. I've stayed in some really nice hotels all over Europe and can say the choice and quality is average at best. Breakfast is probably the best of all three meals with dinner being a very busy affair (the Russians do push in but we just ignored them) and the choice wasn't bad. One important point. I picked up a nasty vomiting and diarrhoea bug on day two which might have been contracted here in the hotel , might not. It took 48 hours to pass and we did report it to the hotel and First Choice who seemed only mildly interested at best (three phone calls and some bottled water sent to the room was all they could offer) After taking a couple of days to recover we got on with our hols but to be honest it did leave us wishing we'd booked elsewhere at the time.
HOTEL. Getting a bit dated and slightly shabby in places but ok. Rooms have good aircon and a fridge , the shower works well and you get a hair dryer. Noise levels pretty good so you should get a decent nights sleep and the rooms are fairly spacious. Fellow guests are a nice mixture of UK , French , Belgium , Spanish and lots of Russians. Pool is small but clean and beds need securing early if you like a particular place otherwise they are all pretty much gone by 9.30 ish. The spa is really good and is free once you buy some caps.
ENTERTAINMENT. Really needs some improvement as some of the acts are cheesy and sometimes poor. We did enjoy the white party on Wednesday though and the acrobats were good.
ADDITIONAL INFO. The Wifi was free with our package but could only cope in the morning as once everyone logged in later in the day it became too temperamental. The entertainment team were very good and gave 100%.
WOULD WE RETURN. Maybe. Maybe not.

Was pleasantly surprised! Well worth every penny! Hotel was lovely, clean and tidy, staff were friendly and helpful! Food was amazing, buffet style with lots to chose from!! Complex was nice too, 3 hotels to chose from in the even for entertainment and pools! We stayed in estival park 1 and loved it! Had unlimited access to the water park and was very pleased what we paid! We went 5 days out of out 7 day trip! Worth every penny! Also saw the dolphins show and sea lions, paid extra for the dolphins experience around £50 per person and again worth it!! Was a fab experience! Also hired out bikes for the day, 12 euros each and cycled to salou which was a good day out! You can also get a bus to there too which is around 2 euros! Also got bus to tarragona to the shopping centre which was cheap and cheerful, 15 mins on a air conditioned bus, again only 2 euros! Shopping centre not amazing but was nice to have a nose around at a few different shops! Lots of details at the hotel about trips to Barcelona too! Would recommend this place, hotel, and the water park to anyone! Family friendly, fun, and superb value for money!

This is the first time that our young family has had a resort/sun holiday together. We didn't really know what to expect, but Falcon Travel in Limerick gave us great advice. The most important advice they gave was recommending the hotel.
Estival Park has three hotels within the same complex. There are English, Irish, French, Belgian guests, etc encompassing hotels 1 and 2, with the Germans and Russians mainly staying in hotel 3. You are free to use the facilities in all 3 hotels (pool, dining, etc), but we hung around our hotel (2) most of the time.
The rooms were marvellous. They had 2 levels, with sleeping arrangements upstairs and down. Balconies are also present and a mini fridge. The rooms were cleaned daily.
The dining arrangements were second to none. I have never seen so much variation so all tastes are catered for. This is especially important if you have young, fussy eaters! The food was also delicious.
The evening entertainment was great, but there was a gap of around 2 hours between the kids club entertainment and the regular entertainment. This was a little annoying.
Guests can use the gym and indoor pool (situated within the complex of the 3 hotels). You need a swimming hat and 50c for lockers.
I really cannot find any major fault with this hotel. It is run by a friendly staff and done so with much professionalism.
Just a hint-wi-fi is free if you're in reception, but you pay if you're in your room. You get the code at reception and this doesn't alter.

Can't fault this holiday, we stayed in an apartment rather than one of the hotels, and had a pool right outside, which was perfect, private and quiet, It could only be used by the apartments.You also have use of all the other pools at the hotels which had activities going on and were all lovely. We had unlimited entry to the water park next door which was well worth it, we went first thing before it got busy most days. The food was of an amazing standard and always lots of choice. Everywhere was incredibly clean and the staff lovely. The location was great 2 minute stroll to a beautiful beach, although we got a cab for 8 euros to salou a couple of times to make use of the jet skis and banana boats, the beach at salou was incredibly busy so only went for water sports. Would highly recommend estival park and would love to return.
