Take a look at the best party hotels 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 three-pearl Golden Avenida Suites is a family-friendly hotel that's a 10-minute walk from Salou's Llevant Beach. The 180 One- and Two-Bedroom Suites have mini-fridges, microwaves, and balconies -- some with pool views -- but the streamlined modern decor is cookie-cutter basic. With four swimming pools and two hot tubs, the hotel offers plenty of places to take a dip, and has one restaurant serving buffet meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- all-inclusive rates are available. Travelers seeking a comparable hotel closer to the beach should check out the 4R Playa Park Hotel, although rates will be higher.
The three-pearl Festival Village is a family friendly hotel with all-inclusive plans that's walking distance of three beaches. All 128 apartments have terraces and kitchens, but decor is basic and dated. Entertainment gets solid marks here, and there are plenty of activities like water polo, arts and crafts, games, and a mini-disco to keep kids busy. The hotel also is an outdoor pool area with a kids' pool, a pool bar, and hot tub. The buffet-style restaurant serves average Spanish and international cuisine, and several amenities and services come with extra fees. Guests looking for a little more style in their holiday may want to consider the H10 Salauris Palace.
The 4R Playa Park Hotel is a three-pearl chain resort on the Costa Dorada in Catalonia -- a 10-minute walk to Capellans Beach. The hotel is surrounded by other hotels, a souvenir shop, a supermarket, and a bar -- it's a 10-minute walk from the bars on Avinguda de Carles Buigas. The 315 guest rooms have balconies or terraces, but the style is extra-simple and some rooms have outdated features. There are two swimming pools, including a kids' pool, a kids' club and playground, an on-site bar and restaurant, plus game rooms and live entertainment. A daily breakfast buffet of hot and cold dishes is offered, as are buffets for lunch and dinner.
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 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 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.
