Fantastic all-inclusive experience

I stayed in Estival Park with my partner at the end of September/early October - my first all-inclusive Spanish experience. Overall, I was really impressed with most areas of my visit. Particularly, the amount of quality food on offer at the buffet was brilliant, and the all day snack foods (although a bit repetitive) were very moreish. The room was spacious, though our balcony faced a wall. We still got sun and I didn't mind the privacy so we didn't ask for a room swap, though my partner said in the past they have swapped rooms for him based on unsatisfactory balcony views, which is good to know. Unfortunately we had an adjoining room, and there was a lot of noise leakage from our neighbours (while reading in silence, we could make out some of what they said) and they did knock on the adjoining door and complain when we came back one evening laughing. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and have never felt that I've had to whisper before to not bother the neighbours, beyond the usual amount of neighbourly respect. We didn't ask to change rooms, but I'm sure they would have obliged if we had asked - service was very good, everyone was approachable and friendly. However, on our fifth day, our shower ran cold and after telling the receptionist, was told someone would be up to fix it. I don't know if someone came while we were out but the water was still cold that evening and we had to make a second complaint. The next morning it was still cold, which was a shame as I'd had such a positive experience, it felt bad having to fault the hotel, but it does justify my 4 star rating instead of 5. Other than these two issues, the hotel felt very welcoming and family-friendly. There was so much evening entertainment to choose from, and activities during the day, but the rooms were airy and comfortable, so if we weren't out of the hotel, it was nice to relax in our own space. Location wise, the beach was a few minutes walk away and La Pineda has enough shops to buy essentials and a few souvenirs. Going further afield, you can buy a bus pass with a certain amount of trips on which for the week allowed us to visit Salou (a nice beach walk and good shopping), Port Aventura (it was thunderstorming on our visit but the majority of rides stayed open, we got round it in one day and only stayed for two hours on our second day there), Tarragona (beautiful architecture and historical monuments/photos ops) and Barcelona. We booked a coach day trip to Barcelona, which actually didn't give us that much time to look around. We saw Gaudi's beautiful cathedral (the highlight of my week - don't go to Barcelona without seeing it) and also the magic fountain show, which was very pretty but I would probably have preferred longer looking around. I can't wait to visit again - it was worth every penny!More

Good value

This was our 2nd time in Salou but first time staying in the Estival Park , myself and my husband stayed in Hotel 1 and our friends along with 2 teenagers stayed in a 1 bed apartment , Our room was very comfortable and we had a nice view overlooking the pool and in the distance you could see the beach , our friends apartment was fantastic very spacious and only 2 mins walk from any of the hotels , we found the food to be of excellent quality and there was a good variety to suit all , we never experienced any queues for breakfast , lunch or dinner and the complex was fully booked on our dates , the only downfall we found the entertainment not great and it finished very early , the spa was excellent and well worth a visit , we will definitely return as its a nice relaxing hotel with excellent facilities and less then 5 mins walk to the beach More

If it was a 2 star...

The hotel is rated 4 star and at max it deserves only 2. At the receiption you will have to wait about 30-40 min at check-in. The rooms are clean but really basic. Internet is terribly slow and even 3G receiption on the mobile is poor. The food was the same at lunch and dinner, only the soup varied. The room was so cold that it took 2 hrs to heat up withe air blowing heating. The fan was so loud that we had to switch it off at night, so it got really cold over night again. At breakfast the coffee was really undrinkable and the healthy options for breakfast were very limited: just fruit, not even low fat milk. At check out another 30 min to be waited!More
