This massive hotel has a total of 7 pools and a trio of restaurants. And it’s all just 2 minutes’ walk from beach.
It’s all about the pool scene at this large hotel. It has 3 huge outdoor pools, an indoor one and 3 just for kids. Inside there’s a choice of buffet restaurants, and live shows every night.
La Pineda beach is just a 2-minute walk through the hotel grounds. And a 10-minute walk will take you to the tapas bars and shops in the centre of town.

My partner and I stayed at this resort for 2 weeks in June of this year. The holiday we booked was a TUI Aquasplash holiday and therefore we were accommodated in hotel block one. Our room was on the top floor of the hotel block and was quiet and nicely out of the way. Four lifts operate in the hotel and therefore access to the room was easy even with cases etc. The room itself was modern, spacious and cleaned every day to a good standard. Complementary toiletries were provided and towels were changed on a daily basis. The room had a balcony with a lovely view that had the sea one way and the pools and resort the other. In relation to our room in the hotel, our only complaints were regarding the safe (which cost us 38 euros!) and the lack of plug sockets available (there was one in the room that could easily be accessed and another hidden behind the bed). I donât know if the lack of sockets was only a problem in our room or if it is a common theme throughout the hotel but I would recommend taking an extension of some sorts if possible if you have a lot of electrical items. Other than these two small issues our room was clean and comfortable and we would be more than happy to stay in it again. Despite our room being in block one, we spent most of our time in block two (blocks 1, 2 and 3 could be used by any hotel guests) as this had a quieter restaurant and had more to offer in relation to all-inclusive food and drinks. The restaurant in hotel one often had a large queue before the doors had even opened and was very busy inside with lots of people pushing to get to the food first. The restaurant in hotel two however was much quieter and you could get straight in at any time. This restaurant also had self-service drinks, something that the restaurant in block one lacked. The food in the restaurants was mostly good, with a variety of food that was kept appropriately warm/cold. Waiters and waitresses were quick to clear away empty plates and the buffet style meant that you could visit as often or little as you liked. The hotels all have a theme each night and the food is based around this theme. Due to the fact that we stayed for two weeks this did get a little repetitive (the themes are repeated weekly) but due to the wide range of options we managed well. The food served ranged from things such as chicken and chips and pizza to seafood and curries etc. Throughout the day the all-inclusive bars were open and free drinks were available either directly from the bar or from the drinks machines in the food areas by the bar. A free cocktail of the day was available each day and the hotels branded cocktails were 1-2euros for all-inclusive guests instead of the 5euro+ advertised. The food available for the all-inclusive guests was self-service and was very nice. Burgers, chicken nuggets, sausages, toasties, chips and beans were all available along with salad, fruits, crisps and pastries (for those with nut allergies, nuts were also freely available at some points in the hotels â something to be aware of!) There were three pools at the resort that we had access to which was a positive as it meant that we could pick the pool that was least crowded. The pool in hotel two had more parasols by the loungers and therefore we spent more time here to be safe from the sun. Hotel three had no/little poolside entertainment and so this could be quieter at times. Whilst away on our holiday my partner and I celebrated our anniversary and the hotel responded to a request on my boyfriendâs behalf and placed cava in our room on the day. This was a nice touch and matched the friendly atmosphere of most of the hotel staff. The location of the hotel was very handy with the beach being just a five minute walk away. Local busses left from outside the back of the hotel (on the beach front) and you could catch these into Cambrills, Salou, Port Aventura and many other places. The Aquapolis waterpark included in our stay was a ten minute walk away at most and was easy to find as this was also located on the sea front. Overall my partner and I had an amazing 2 week holiday at this hotel and would definitely consider returning due to the fantastic location and the cleanliness of the rooms.More

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel in June. The hotel itself was really nice and clean, a short walk from the beach and close to bus stops to other places in Spain. The bathroom was also nice and clean. The hotel offers 3 choices of entertainment per night in 3 different parts of the hotel and a gym/spa including tennis courts (it does cost to use the tennis courts though) which we thought was quite nice. If you are with the tui team, they offer discounts on bus fares and joint trips, but do be aware you can get it a lot cheaper if you visit the tourist information shop a short walk from the hotel, near the beach. For example, we visited the Camp Nou for around â¬20 cheaper by booking through the tourist shop. The food was really nice, but they do serve a lot of fish dishes each night and also don't label the food very well, especially when some of the dishes don't state what meat it is, and also it may be annoying for people who have food allergies having to ask all the time what's in the food. The room we stayed in had a lovely view of the golf park and seemed quite clean, although we did notice both the bedding and glasses we used for water were never changed whilst we stayed there (we noticed this from certain marks), which I admit we could have brought this up with staff, but really we shouldnt have to. All in all we had a really nice stay here and would stay again.More
Rooms excellent, We had a 'double' bed which was six feet wide :) Kids in next room had twin beds. Very clean and comfortable. We went all inclusive and I was very impressed with the quality, quantity and variety of food, everything from chicken nuggets and chips to Spanish style food. Great variety of salads and hot dishes, great desserts and typically 12+ types of fruit available. Snacks ( chicken nuggets, fruits, nuts, toasties, sausages, bacon, salads) available 11am to 11pm. As far as drinks go Spanish all inclusive drinks were very good, wines excellent and Estrella beer. Staff all very efficient. Pools clean and well supervised. Entertainment not bad but we didn't really see a lot of it. English TV channels. Wi-Fi OK but not great (although we as Aquasplash customers had free 'Pro' Wi-Fi in rooms). Overall I would recommend for a family holiday. Aquasplash gives free access to good waterpark next door. La Pineda is nicer than neighbouring Salou with is plethora of 'English' pubs and gives a good base for visits to Barcelona (We went to Nou Camp). Plana bus tours are cheaper than ones arranged by tour companies although we went to Barcelona on the bus under our own steam.More
We stayed in Estivil park1,there are 3 hotels next to each other in this huge complex,firstly I have to say the food was amazing,staff in the dining hall were ok,reception staff terrible,not at all helpful or friendly,cleaning staff were fantastic and the rooms were immaculate. Dining time in the evening was 7.30pm to 10pm,not great for people with kids,and having to queue for up to 30 mins was ridiculous which was the case most of the time. We went all inclusive and on the lower level you could help yourself to drinks from a room next to the bar,coffee,soft drinks,beer and some kind of cocktail,both with and without alcohol were on tap,not really a good idea when children can help themselves to anything that looks good!!!! In general there were good points for this resort,but having spoken to other people who had the same view as I had I wouldn't recommend it myself and I wouldn't return again to this particular hotel. To many people and not enough room.More
Visited last year with my fiancÃ©. Really relaxed atmosphere and lots of activities to get involved with. Animation staff great fun. Bar staff maybe a bit over worked in evenings but not too long to wait. Pools have lots of space around them. Water park is a lot of fun. Surrounding area lively with great beach More
