The Barcelona building overlooks 3 blocks: Reus, Barcelona and Scala Dei. The apartments have either 1 or 2 bedrooms, and are available in summer or all year round. They come with a full bathroom with bathtub, kitchen, living room, and terrace overlooking either the communal area, or the aforementioned streets. The apartments aren't bad, but many of them are in need of a bit of a face lift. There's a pool in the communal area, and the Barcelons is in the centre of Salou, near all the amenities and less than ten minutes from the train station and the beach.
The Ancora apartments are located in the Paseo Miramar. Almost all of the apartments overlook the sea and harbour. I've stayed there on both the ground and fourth floors, and they were more or less similar: a kitchenette, two bedrooms, living room, and bathroom with bathtub. Functional furniture and decoration, sometimes looking a little dated. The building doesn't have a pool, but it's just a minute's walk from Ponent beach, and ten minutes from the train station, and all the amenities, shops, and restaurants in the centre of Salou.
The Cancun Apartments are at the beginning of the dual-carriageway to Tarragona, a bit of a trek from downtown and ten minutes' walk from the beach. There are several hotels in the area. The Cancun has a swimming pool and roof terrace, two elevators and CCTV. The apartments are all very similar, one or two bedrooms with air conditioning, open-plan kitchen, living/dining room and one bathroom. The terraces are a good size, more than adequate to eat and relax. The only problem I've seen is that the car park gets very congested in summer.
This comfy and well-located hotel is situated at the end (or the beginning) of the Rambla de Tarragona. You can arrive at the seaside promenade after just a short walk down the Rambla.
The hotel is very modern and the rooms are enormous and comfortable. There is also a rooftop swimming pool to beat the summer heat. Going for a refreshing swim with great views is a real luxury.
This is not a restaurant or hotel or shop or olive grove: it’s all in one and a really beautiful place. The fact is that La Boella, located halfway between Tarragona and Reus, is a 110-hectare olive grove that produces extra virgin olive oil and hosts weddings, communions, and other events in their gardens and ancient cellars.
Although my visit consisted only of an oil tasting (to learn the secrets of this liquid gold), I was showed around some of its facilities and came home with another charming hotel to add to my bucket list.
To add even more to the overall cuteness, there are two nice little hotels located in the center of the complex. There are thirteen rooms in total, divided into modern and the classic, and look like they’d make for a really blissful stay. If you can afford it (about 210€/night) I’d consider the suite. It occupies the entire top floor and has a terrace overlooking the estate.
A real luxury.
Located 1K from the Poblet Monastery, this is a hotel and restaurant. It is a Relais du Silence hotel, which is is one of a small handful that espouse a philosophy of silence as therapy and gastronomy as a stimulus for the senses. It is a 14th century restored farmhouse. The restaurant is good food and great value, with very good wines from Conca de Barbera.
These apartments are located in the Paseo Jaime I. Two are brick buildings with a swimming pool and solarium between them. The two apartments which I've been in are comfortable, with an open-plan kitchen, living room, bath with bathtub, bedroom with wardrobe, and 10 m2 balcony (some are larger). The atmosphere is quiet, cozy, and intimate. Some of the apartments have sea views, while others look over the main street, and there is underground parking available. In the area you'll find all sorts of restaurants and shops, and Llevant Beach - the busiest in Salou - is nearby. The train station is just 10 minutes' walk from the building, and there are bus stops where you can travel anywhere in Salou, as well as to nearby towns such as Cambrils and La Pineda Vilaseca.
The Bahha complex is a few apartments with incredible views over the sea and Capellan beach. The apartments are a good size for four people to be comfortable. Be aware, though, that they could be in a number of different states: run-down or totally reformed, so it pays to make sure before booking. The complex has a pool, underground car park, and direct access to the beach. The terraces are large and lively, and the area is very quiet - it's great to fall asleep listening to the sound of the sea.
These apartments are located in the tourist zone, practically in the middle of the pubs and nightclubs, so they're really not a good choice if you're looking for a quiet getaway. The apartments have one or two bedrooms, a kitchen, spacious living room, 10m2 terrace, and full bathroom. There's a communal swimming pool with a kiosk for drinks and ice cream in the summer. The beach is about 10 minutes' walk away.
The Pentathlon complex is located in the tourist area in the heart of Salou. Here you'll find apartments with one or two bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen/dining room, spacious terrace and full bathroom. They're not too big, but they're fine for a summer holiday, but take into account that it will be very difficult to sleep at night, due to their noisy location. They have a pool, too, if you don't want to go to the beach.
We enjoyed an amazing weekend at the Class Valls Hotel (Tarragona) with a romantic getaway (it was a gift for my girlfriend). They decorated the room with rose petals and a bouquet of flowers. They also sent up a bottle of champagne and some chocolates. The staff is very friendly, especially the receptionist in the morning who made us a reservation to go on a tour of a winery with a wine tasting. It was all great and we'll definitely return, because my girlfriend loved it!
Port Eugeni Hotel is a 4 star hotel that is fairly close to the beach (less than 5 minutes walk), has parking and a rooftop pool. The rooms are simple but have a balcony,they are bright and have a spacious bathroom. No internet in the rooms, but there is in the lobby lounge and it is free. What we liked the most was the friendly service offered at all times, something that is very much appreciated in accomodation.
To sleep while hearing the ocean is a real luxury, one that’s easily found at this hotel. Many of the rooms look out directly over the beach and it’s only a question of putting on your swimsuit and running out for a swim before breakfast (or any moment you fancy!).
The location is definitely the best part of this hotel, but it also has a lot of facilities like a pool, gym, and spa, but why bother when you have the ocean so near? Also, the hotel’s restaurant, La Nansa, was excellent.
The Alexandra Aparthotel complex is in a prime location in the old town of Tarragona, just a few minutes walk from the Tarraco Amphitheatre, the Roman Circus or the Plaça del Sedassons. You can enjoy a stroll through the pleasant surroundings full of history. It's air conditioned and comprises a total of 30 apartments. The garden is ideal for relaxing and the rooms are very comfy and spacious. It offers free WiFi, a cloakroom and lifts, 24 hour reception and a hotel safe.
The Hesperia Centurion Hotel in Cambrils is located in the province of Tarragona, across from the beach, right on the seafront. It has 257 rooms spread over 3 floors: 129 standard, 63 with sea views, 7 junior suites, and 8 junior standard suites.
All of these rooms are fully equipped and have a private bathroom, television, air conditioning, minibar, safe, and free Wi-Fi. Among the facilities and services the hotel offers its clients are two outdoor pools: one for children as well as one for adults, a fitness center, spa, games room and children's entertainment service.
Hotel Kursaal’s privileged location in front of the sea makes it an unforgettable place where even just staying in your room is a nice experience. You can spend hours on your balcony just looking out over the beach of Calafell and one of the best oceanside promenades on the Costa Dorada.
Walking up to the sound of the waves is a real pleasure.
The Costa Daurada, with over 90 miles of beaches, natural areas, and sights, is ideal for a family vacation and the friendly staff at Hotel Kursaal really went out of their way to make our stay great.
They don’t leave any detail to chance. You start your day with a buffet breakfast in the restaurant Latitude 41 or, if you prefer, on the terrace of your room overlooking the sea.
There is a bar service throughout the day only a few meters from the sea and the hotel provides plenty of umbrellas and lounge chairs on the beach.
Latitude 41 becomes a lounge-restaurant at night and serves Mediterranean cuisine like rices, "calderetes”, fresh fish, and other delicacies.
This is a wonderful place to stay that combines the peacefulness of the surroundings, top-notch Mediterranean cuisine, and wonderful service.
