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.

We traveled as a young couple, staying in Hotel 1 for 7 nights. On arrival, the receptionists were very slow so don't be expecting a speedy check in. We arrived at 10:30, but our rooms weren't to be ready until 12-2, luckily we had both packed swimwear and a change of clothes in our hand luggage. They lock your suitcases away, give you an all inclusive wristband and away you go. The room was very clean and had plenty of space for the two of us, with a very good air-con system - so good I needed the thicker blanket a couple of nights. The restaurant got very busy at meal times but there was plenty of seating and we only ended up queuing on two occasions. The range of food was fantastic, I didn't have the same meal twice, which is easily achievable if you don't pile your plate with everything that's on offer each day. The quality of the food wasn't the greatest, but you get what you pay for. We never went hungry as there was also a self service snack bar open 11am-11pm, where you could get the likes of burgers, chips, chicken nuggets, cheese and ham toasties. As well as pastries, crisps and peanuts. The First Choice reps were fantastic, after our welcome meeting we felt we knew the resort really well. We went on the House of illusion excursion and it was well worth the money - it was the best night of our holiday. I won't say much as I don't want to ruin the show, but it blew my mind and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. We had unlimited access to the waterpark but only ended up using it once, we enjoyed it but there were a smaller number of slides than we expected. We went to the dolphin show twice though, this was brilliant. Overall we had a wonderful holiday - it was my partner's first time on a package holiday and it didn't scare him off! We would consider returning one day but not as a couple, it's more of a family resort.More
Everything about hotel is great. I stayed in building 2 and had no problems checking in, room, staff, food, drink., entertainment etc. My only gripe is the 'smokers' who congregate from the low level door leading to the pool. There are 2 seated and covered areas to the left and right as you leave the door to go the pool and they were usually filled with smokers, resulting in passing through the smoke to go to the pool or to leave via the back entrance. Even going out to sit in the shaded areas with a drink or something to eat was subject of smoke coming from all sides and for me was disgusting. Even sitting just inside the door which had automatic open and close facility was hopeless as soon as the doors slid open, the waft of air brought in the smoke to where you were seated and again I found this disgusting while having a drink or some light bites. The smoking area should be reserved in the opposite corner which wasnt utilised by anyone. There were lots of children in this immediate area playing and they too were subject to inhaling smoke. Also doesnt help anyone with lung problems. I really recommend the hotel do something about it as this corner was really 'getting up my nose' !!!!! Honestly it was grim and that bad.More
Great 2 week holiday
Stayed at Estival Park resort in a 1 bedroomed apartment, All inclusive holiday booked through First Choice as part off there splashworld package. The Hotel has 3 good sized pools but can get very busy and the Apartment block has a separtate pool which was a lot quieter. The enterainment both during the day and in the evening is well orginised and there is some thing for everyone. My only complant is in the evening entertaiment starts a little late at 2200. We where allocated to eat in Hotel 2 and have to say the choice and quaility was fantastic.Staff are polite and courtous. The Snack bars in both Hotel 1 & 2 where always well stocked and there was plenty of choice. Location is wonderful, located right on the beach and next to a good all round waterpark. good transport links to both Tarrogona and Salou/Cambrills. Would highly recommend the Aqua spa even through could only get free access between 0800 and 1700. Gym is fully stock with all the latest equipment. Spa is very well thought out and is warm and relaxing. On the whole the highest complement i can pay the resort is i would go back.More

Stayed at the Estival 2 for 7 nights which we booked through Thomson. Large hotel complex consisting of 3 main buildings ( Estival 1, 2, 3) all with seperate pools, plus apartments within their own grounds and have restricted access. Daytime entertainment in all 3 hotels for the kids with some adult entertainment. All 3 had different evening entertainment which was good. Beach is probably 6-8 mins away with most of walk done in hotel grounds. Great food was served with classic Spanish and English dishes on the menu. You must make use of the spa which is complimentary. Taxi to Salou is approximately 5mins @ 8-10 euro. More
We have just returned from the above hotel. We found it to be extremely clean, fantastic food, courteous and helpful staff. The amount of work that goes into this hotel to obtain all of the above is a credit to all concerned. I would also like to thank Ingrid for the lovely gesture of champagne after we had a little bit of trouble with some other guests - not British. There are an abundance of things to do within this hotel, both for little ones and grown ups. You have a choice of using the facilities of their three hotels which gives you a change now and then. It is very close to a beautiful beach ( 5 mins away) which is cleaned on a daily basis. No dogs allowed until October. Britain take note. Sam the First Choice Rep was also very helpful to us when we needed to speak with him. Our nearly two year old grand-daughter was one of the first to be dancing at 8.p.m. when the kids programme began - she is still singing the songs and doing all the actions. As a family we would most definitely return to this hotel.More
