Take a look at the best all-inclusive resorts in Salou.
The 351-room H10 Salauris Palace is an upper-middle-range chain hotel in downtown Salou, a 15-minute walk from PortAventura Park and Levante Beach. Mostly stylish rooms have furnished balconies, but there are fees for use coffeemakers and mini-fridges in some rooms. The wonderful indoor and outdoor pools attract families, while the adults-only rooftop solarium is a favorite for couples. On-site restaurants and bars receive good reviews, and Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. Travelers with kids should also consider the PortAventura Hotel Caribe, which offers free admission to the adjacent PortAventura Park.
The Hotel Golden Port Salou is a three-pearl, 348-room hotel on the edge of downtown Salou, just a 10-minute walk from two beaches. Rooms are dated and simple, with furnished balconies and modern tile bathrooms, but there's a fee for mini-fridges and safes. All-inclusive options are available, and the on-site restaurant and bars offer decent meals and drinks. There's also a lovely solarium with hot tubs, as well as indoor and outdoor pools, and a spa providing a range of treatments. Travelers may want to compare rates at the H10 Salauris Palace, which has more contemporary rooms and a greater range of dining options.
Hotel-Aparthotel Dorada Palace is an three-pearl, 360-room hotel on the outskirts of Salou’s city center, a five-minute drive from PortAventura Park. Rooms are bland, but have flat-screen TVs and furnished balconies. Apartments with full kitchens are also available, however, TV remotes and safes require a deposit in all rooms. Child-friendly features such as a game room, a free kids' club, and live entertainment are a plus for families, while the adults-only rooftop pool and Wellness Center are highlights for couples. Travelers looking for a more romantic atmosphere should consider the H10 Salou Princess, with its modern style and downtown location.
The 300-room Sol Costa Daurada is an upper-middle-range property on the outskirts of downtown Salou. Simple rooms are modern but austere, with terraces or balconies and tile bathrooms. Family-friendly features are abundant and include a free kids' club, kids' pool, a game room, and live entertainment, while there is an extensive Wellness Center with hot tubs, a sauna, fitness center, and massages for adults. Freebies include Wi-Fi and shuttle service to the beach and PortAventura Park, but safes, parking, and the business center cost extra. Travelers in town to visit PortAventura might also want to consider the all-inclusive Hotel El Paso PortAventura, which is adjacent to PortAventura Park.
The two-and-a-half-pearl Hotel Villamarina Club is an all-inclusive property with dated public spaces and more contemporary -- though bare-bones -- rooms. It's about a 15-minute walk to the beach, and there are multiple restaurants and bars within a 10-minute walk. Most of the 189 rooms have furnished balconies or patios, but old tube-style TVs and hairdryers are just about the only amenities. Two-bedroom apartments with kitchens are available off-site. The hotel is largely geared toward families with two large pools, a rooftop solarium with two hot tubs, and a playground. Meals are served buffet-style and receive excellent reviews, plus there are a poolside snack bar and bar with billiards tables. The communal areas of the hotel are well-maintained, and rooms are large and modern. Guests looking for a similar experience closer to the beach should consider the Eurosalou Hotel.
The mid-range 4R Salou Park Resort I is a large, all-inclusive property with a vibrant setting just a few minutes' walk from the beach. Several restaurants and bars are within a short walk, and more are in the town center, a 10-minutes walk away. The 218 rooms are bright and clean, and some have furnished balconies with sea views, but mini-fridges and safes require fees. Guests have access to the 4R Salou Park Resort II next door, and amenities on-site include an outdoor pool that gazes out to sea, a children's pool, kids' club, and playground. A gastropub and buffet restaurant are on-site, and nightly entertainment includes flamenco dancers. Guests have complained of noise from within and outside the hotel. The 4R Regina Gran Hotel is farther from the beach, but has a quieter atmosphere.
The mid-range 4R Regina Gran Hotel is a family-friendly property in the seaside town of Salou, within walking distance of the center and beach. The 294 contemporary rooms are done in light colors and have balconies, but there are fees for mini-fridges and safes. An outdoor pool with a separate kiddy pool and an indoor pool with adjacent sauna and whirlpool are standout features. All-inclusive and half-board options are available at the buffet restaurant, and there are also indoor and outdoor bars serving light fare. The hotel has a kids' club and seasonal playroom, as well as mini-golf and sports facilities. The nearby H10 Salauris Palace is a more attractive option with an adult-only rooftop sundeck.
The MedPlaya Hotel Calypso is a mid-range hotel in Salou, a 10-minute walk from Capellans Beach. The 514 simple rooms have furnished balconies, and some room rates include free access to the Aquopolis water park. The two on-site outdoor pools have adjacent kids' pools, and there is plenty of live entertainment throughout the day. Kid-friendly activities range from the free kids' club to a game room with bowling alley and pool tables, and all-inclusive options are available. Guests in town to visit PortAventura Park may want to consider the more modern PortAventura Hotel Caribe, which includes free park admission for all guests.
The three-and-a-half-pearl Hotel PortAventura is a 500-room hotel in the PortAventura Theme Park in Salou. Simple, Mediterranean rooms have balconies and tile bathrooms, and Family Rooms have fun cartoon themes. Family-focused features include free access to the theme park and discounted entry to Costa Caribe Aquatic Park. Other perks include several on-site restaurants, outdoor pools, and free Wi-Fi, breakfast, and shuttle rides to the city center. However, pools are seasonal and lines at the park and front desk are long. Guests looking for a downtown hotel away from the park should consider the Hotel Calypso instead.
The 230-room MedPlaya Piramide Salou is a mid-range hotel located a 10-minute walk from the beach and multiple eateries. Breakfast and dinner are served buffet-style in the hotel’s restaurant, while drinks and light snacks are available at both the main and poolside bar. Half-board up to all-inclusive packages are available. Rooms are spacious and bright thanks to sliding glass doors that lead to balconies, but they have some wear and occasional maintenance issues. Health facilities are absent here, but there's a large and attractive outdoor pool with a separate kiddy pool. A playground and children’s entertainment during high season make this hotel suitable for families. It's worth checking out the H10 Mediterranean Village, which has a ton more in terms of features.
The mid-range Hotel El Paso PortAventura is a 501-room hotel that's part of PortAventura Park's official accommodations. Mexican hacienda-style rooms have balconies and tile bathrooms are nicer than many in Salou, but some can pick up noise. The resort is a good choice for families, and rates include free entry to PortAventura Park. Wi-Fi is free throughout, as are shuttles to downtown Salou and the Park, and a kids' club. However, on-site entertainment leaves a lot to be desired and there can be long lines at the front desk. Travelers to the area may want to also consider the 4R Regina Gran Hotel, which has a spa and is located downtown.
The mid-range, 288-room Eurosalou Hotel is an all-inclusive property located in the old town of Salou, a 10-minute walk from the beach. The no-frills rooms are clean and have balconies, but lower-category rooms don't come with mini-fridges and all have to pay for safes. Decent features include an outdoor pool with separate kiddy pool, buffet restaurant serving local and international cuisine, and nightly entertainment for both kids and adults. A small gym and spa offering massage treatments, a sauna, steam room, and indoor swimming pool are available, but for a price. Free Wi-Fi is only available in communal areas. For a more modern design and less added fees, consider the H10 Vintage Salou, though it's not all-inclusive.
The 497-room PortAventura Hotel Caribe is an upper-middle-range hotel that's part of PortAventura theme park's official accommodations. Tropical-themed rooms have furnished balconies and modern tile bathrooms; some have jetted tubs and private pools. The hotel’s park-side location (and free park admission) is a major highlight, as are the five on-site pools and discounted tickets to Costa Caribe Aquatic Park. There are several restaurants and bars as well, though food can get monotonous, and access to the fitness center and certain pools is not included in all room rates. Travelers might also want to consider the adults-only Magnolia Hotel, which has a spa and wellness center.
The Inter2Salou (formerly Internacional II) is a budget hotel with 200 apartment-style rooms a five-minute walk from the beach, at the far end of Salou, rather than in the main town. The modest studio apartments can sleep up to four people, and are equipped with a kitchenette, flat-screen TV, plastic dining table, and furnished balcony. Guests can book all-inclusive packages for the buffet restaurant and indoor and poolside bars, but the food receives mixed reviews. A medium-size outdoor pool has an adjacent kiddy pool, and the area can get crowded in high season. Communal areas are cheaply -- and often garishly -- decorated, and wear and tear is visible throughout. Travelers looking to be closer to the action should consider the more modern Les Dalies Apartamentos, though it doesn't offer all-inclusive rates.
The 246-room H TOP Molinos Park is a basic, budget hotel located in Cap Salou, a five-minute walk from Cala de la Font Beach. One of the area's cheapest hotels, guests get what they've paid for -- rooms are dated, walls are thin, kids run rampant, and food is lackluster. Open only from April to October, the property has outdoor pools that are popular with families, while the adults-only rooftop hot tub is a (boozy) haven for older guests. Guests desiring a quieter, more modern atmosphere should consider the 4R Regina Gran Hotel, with its downtown Salou location.
