A good pool scene and a handy setting close to the beach – just a couple of reasons this big, bright hotel wins the vote.
This place is just a 10-minute walk from Salou’s beach, one of the best sandy stretches on the Costa Dorada. It’s in a lively little sea port, with a raft of shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep.
The Calypso comes with lots of activities. There are 2 main pools for starters. The 10-pin bowling alley wins plaudits on TripAdvisor, too.

Entertainment is amazing!
Just back from a weeks stay. The entertainment team are amazing! The hotel is lovely and clean and staff are very helpful. I wasn't keen on the breakfast but I am fussy and the snacks and dinners were good. Brilliant holiday would defo go back for the entertainment alone! More
Good 3* hotel
Just back from the Calypso and I would class it as a good quality 3* hotel. Bedrooms are very basic but you only use them for sleeping in so don't spend much time in them. Food is good, hot and plentifull. Entertainment good and plenty for kids to do, everything from Pc's, Playstations to Ten Pin Bowling alley, Table Tennis ect. Only slight complaint I have is that the sunbeds are really uncomfortable but if you lie on-top of a couple of towels that solves the problem. Overall a good hotel that won't burst you're budget.More
Brilliant Hotel for adults and kids
Fantastic Hotel for both adults and children. Hotel rooms are exactly what you expect, at end of the day your only sleeping in them so don't need much. Hotel is clean with plenty of pool areas and a fantastic kids club. Staff are friendly and very well spoken. Entertainment teams are superb, activities during the day for adults and children and the night time team are out of this world with the shows they put on. Been here many times before and would go back. Food is nice from the grill bar during the day, and if kids like chicken nuggets and chips they will love it as they are on every day. Restaurant food could do with being altered as very repetitive and to many fish dishes, kids food could have a bit more variety also. From me this hotel is spot on.More
