We stayed for 8 nights end of Sep 2013 booking through keycamp, who we have previously used twice in France as a couple, but this time we took our 6 month old boy, we had a 2 bed villanova, which was the right size, high chair/baby bath/cot/change mat provided free. (baby bath was a bit slippy so it took two of us to bath him on the lounge floor and one day on the decking) As per other reviews the site is brilliant especially the pools and slides. Beach access was great too for an evening stroll. We'd definitely recommend this to families, and will seriously consider it again in future. We're vegetarian but didn't really struggle, there are a few supermarkets in Miami Platja not far away, Escalat sells soya/tofu products which was really handy and reasonable priced, we also found 1lt cartons of decent red wine for about 70p, although only marginally cheaper than the onsite supermarket, along with the souviner shop sell almost everything you'd need.
As per other reviews, the site staff are really good, and keep everything clean.
The only downsides we found was with evening meals, as in Spain it seems impossible to eat at a sensible time for children, eg anytime before bedtime/7pm for ours, I enquired at reception and the nearest place we were told would be McDonalds in Cambrils the next main town along (which isn't very helpful for vegetarians) so we ate in at night and had the odd meal out during the day instead of during the evening.
We hired a car as we flew into Barcelona but if you fly into Reus I imagine that you could get away without one, if you planned on staying in and around the camp for the duration of your stay. We had day trips into Barcelona (If you have a car I'd say drive all the way in) as we took the train from Villanova and parking was a major issue, and going straight in via the A7 as far as you can before joining the toll roads AP7-C32, would have been as cheap as the train tickets and quicker. Tarragona was a good place to visit a bit industrial on the outskirts but great town centre including historical sites. Cambrils is a nice port/fishing town worth a visit, which joins onto Salou which is a lot more touristy but caters well for everyone and you could probably eat at a earlier time here.
