Just too many people

This is now our 3rd trip to the Estival Park and can't quite put my finger on how things have changed, Was really really surprised by the number of children in the hotel. My children have " flown the nest" and we book outside of school term. Did think schools we're discouraging children to be taken on holidays during term time, but this obviously was not the case. We travelled with Shearings for a 16 day holiday 4th-19th October. Made very welcome by hard working staff. Had room this time that had a wonderful sea view (2458) overlooking the pool. Have previously had a golf side view. The sun came out in the morning and was wonderfully warm for this time of year, but oh how noisy at night - even when the entertainment ended the noise was terrible. Yelling and shouting, football chanting that went in until at least 2.30 am most nights. Seems some " guests" on the all inclusive package were determined the drink the hotel dry. Any hope of sleeping with the patios doors and curtains open on a warm evening to soak in the lovely views of the twinkling lights were nil. The annoying habit of getting up early and placing towels on the sun beds and then disappearing for the day without using them this year was very evident. This was particularly selfish as only half of the beds were in the sun, the others remaining in the shade all day - this previously was frowned up - maybe the hotel management have given up. The food as always was excellent - but again spoilt by unruly unsupervised children running around the dining room handling food, putting in back, dropping it on the floor, one occasion throwing ice cream at one of the glass partitions and watching in amusement as it dripped on to the floor. Overall there were just too many people in the hotel. The que for the dining room started well before the doors opened and snaked through the reception out on to the poolside, if you were a single traveller you would stand no chance of eating, the only way to keep a table was for one person to sit at the table whilst the others went for food as the table would be occupied by other guest searching for a table. We were told that the hotel complex takes 1000 people a week from Thomson Holidays - this being the busiest hotel for them in Europe! The entertainment was fine - something for everyone - beach lovely - safe area to walk - spa again lovely ( remember to bring a swimming hat). If you're a non smoker then this hotel is not for you. Nice covered area outside but a " smokers paradise" . Would we visit again - yes love the resort but would request to stay in Estival 1 - had friends staying there, was so much quieter and peaceful, plenty of sun beds to use, a beautiful veranda surrounded by palm trees in the dining room, a slower pace of life where you can unwind, the main reason we now take a holiday. If you are on holiday without children then Estival 2 is not for you.More

Linda B,

A lovely venue for a holiday but avoid school holidays.

My husband and I travelled with Shearings to Estival Park Salou on a 9 day holiday just prior to the UK half term school holiday. There were enough children there during the week but just before we left there was an influx of kids who were running wild with no obvious supervision from parents. Prior to this we had a good holiday and the weather was perfect. The restaurant served a whole variety of fresh, appetising food and the problem was what to choose. The snack bar is available all day without restrictions to "all inclusive" guests, and includes hot food as well as cold salads and snacks. Free drinks are also available to those same guests but bottled beers or named spirits must be paid for. The outdoor swimming pool is cold and sun-loungers are snapped-up very early in the day but we found the short walk to the beach meant a more relaxing day and warmer water in the sea. We also went to the indoor pool on the site and it's very warm and enjoyable with the steam room and different types of pools. You do need a swimming cap. The rooms were clean with enough bathroom supplies of soap, shampoo, tissues, make-up removers and shower caps. The beds were comfortable and extra pillows etc are available on request at reception. Beware that there are no tea/coffee supplies in the bedrooms but we took our small (spanish) kettle, mugs, tea bags, 3 in 1 coffee sachets, and dried milk, so no problem for an early morning drink in bed. The whole hotel is cleaned daily and staff are attentive, polite and friendly. Salou and Tarragona are an easy walk or short bus ride away and a local market is held 2 minutes from the hotel every Friday until 1pm. We will definitely consider a return visit.More

Pleasently Surprised

I travelled here with 2 friends in July. Its the cheapest holiday Ive been on (ever I think!) so from this wasnt expecting it to be great however it was much better than I thought! Rooms are a decent size, a little dated but kept clean so we were pleased with it! Found the food was a little repetitive but there was always something to eat, even for a fussy eater like me! Loved the ice lollies which were included in the all inclusive and the help yourself soft drink service. We paid an additional €1 with every alcoholic drink to get named spirits rather than local, much nicer. Location was very good. A couple minute walk and you were on the main road with a selection of shops, restaurants and bars. There was a bus service which ran frequently to Salou and PortAventure. The waterpark is literally a 10 minute walk away. It was quite difficult getting a sunlounger on a morning however my early bird friend made this her goal each morning so luckily we were ok. Pool looks quite small in comparision to how big the area is but it was never full so we were ok. Would I return? Probably! Not for a romantic get away with my boyfriend but for a cheap fun week away with lots to do, its ideal. More

Estival Park

We stayed here for a week and overall it was a very good holiday. Just a couple of very small gripes like a previous review. The evening meal time was changed from 18.30 to 19.30 but after 2 days reverted back to the earlier time. The maids did a good job, ok again like a previous review the floor may not of been brushed the sand was there for 4 days but I suppose their under pressure to do so many rooms in a given time. My only gripe was info from the reps. We wanted to go to Salou on the day of the car rally. The staff in the local bus office were helpfull but on the day we called the girl didn't speak english that well but did tell us that buses to Salou would be running on the day of the rally. I checked with the reps & they said ther would be no buses on that day. So we gave the rally a miss and went on the beach & watched buses going to Salou. perhaps i should of pushed the reps to find out more but perhaps they could of tryed harder.More
