Super hotel pity about the holiday makers

Stayed 1st - 8th Nov. What can I say, the hotel was good the food for a change in Spain was good. The service was good. The only and major complaint was the French and their kids, they completely overtook every thing the noise was deafening and the parents allowed the kids the run riot, the mess they left on the last night was disgusting they left the corridor like a pig sty. I felt sorry for the cleaning staff the next morning having to clean up the food that had been strewn about. The beginning of the week week said it would be lovely to come back to the hotel but as the week went on our thoughts changed. Thanks but no thanks never again.More

Super in everything

Stay in this hotel every year, always good impressions. Food of the best quality and varied. Rooms are good 4*, duplexes are very comfortable when staying 3+ people SPA is very large and good retreat after hot day at the beach. The sea is just a short walk, sandy, clear water. Location is perfect if you wish to travel to Port Aventura or aqua park. Tarragona is just 12 km away with shopping and sightseeing!More

Estival Park October 2015

Stayed here from 17-31st October 2015. We had extra family members coming out in the second week, so I had emailed the hotel in advance to request adjacent rooms which we got. We were placed in Hotel 2 on arrival. We arrived early so our room wasn't ready but we were able to use the All-inclusive facilities straight away. Our room had twin beds and a third bed for our son. The room was very clean, decor was dated but I think cleanliness is more important so this wasn't a problem. We had daily maid service which was excellent. Fresh towels every day along with bedding changed often. Our room was on the 4th floor and we had lovely views over the pool and sea. One negative was that there was no kettle in the room, we had brought our own though. There was a mini fridge (empty) and the bathroom had a decent enough hairdryer. The safe was an extra 2 euros per day with a 10e deposit. On check in there is also a tourist tax payable of approx 7euro per adult, children are exempt though. The food was excellent, with a wide and varied menu. Apart from set meal times, the snack bar was available from 10am til 11pm. We found the staff in the restaurant to be pleasant and very efficient. The bar had a good choice of soft drinks, estrella beer, local wines and spirits, and fresh coffee which was excellent. The AI also included cava, and bottles of soft drinks like Coke, Fanta, and Sprite. For AI guests for 1 euro you could have branded drinks such as Smirnoff and bottles of Coronita. Hotel 2 seemed to have mostly British guests. We could use the facilities and restaurant in Hotel 1, which seemed to have mostly French and Spanish guests. The restaurant here was more swish than in Hotel 2 but still served the same food. We found Hotel 1 to be the quieter option and the surroundings seemed a lot smarter. The hotel run kids club was excellent,the girls who worked there were lovely and our son loved going there, it was the first time that he has asked to go anywhere like that whilst on holiday. The entertainment was typical of family hotels,the Beatles show and the magic shows were good, other nights there were cabaret shows and karaoke. There was a teenager named Kai (I think) who was great singing Guns n Roses at karaoke. Our son George says hi! The animation was run by Ian who was game for a laugh and very cheerful, daytime activities included quizzes, bingo, darts, killer pool etc. No pressure to join in though. The spa looked lovely however we didn 't use this so can't really comment on this. The outdoor pools at each hotel were freezing and it was only kids who were brave enough to go in. It would be great if these could be heated in the winter. We had quite a few sunny hot days but the pool was still too cold to go in. The grounds of the hotels are lovely and very well kept. La Pineda beach was 5 minutes walk away and this was really clean and tidy. The sea was warm enough to swim in which was a bonus. There is a supermarket called Michaelangos by the beach, and a good selection of touristy gift shops, a tobacconist, doctors and several bars and restaurants. The food at the hotel was so good that we didn't bother eating out. The hotel sells tickets for Barcelona FC football matches, my husband and brother both went. It cost 90 euro each, which included return coach travel from the hotel to the Nou Camp, and a ticket for the match. Well worth the money as a great time was had by all. Would we return? I wouldn't hesitate returning here, we all had a super holiday, weather was mostly great, and it was a bargain from Thomson First Choice. Wish we were still there!!More

too noisy

When you are on holidays you expect to have a time to relax and enjoy with your family, this place is almost right, the food is fantastic,quite busy if you are not early at the restaurant, but in general good, staff is okay, not over friendly just fair. Despite there are signs of not reserving the beds at the pool, people is still doing it, well, nothing to do about it. But the worst thing of this hotel is the noise at night!! okay, it suppose they organise a different events every night but come on! it is so loud and still going on after midnight. Bearing in mind this is a "family" resort, with babies and small kids, the management shall be more comprehensive on this and shut down the noise at 11pm at the latest.More

better than first impressions

when we first arrived we were horror struck. maybe we are snobs but the British guests there were extreme chavvy: boozed up, scoffing down burgers with tattoos aplenty, leaving their out of control children screaming and running amok (which continued to the late hours). we found out that there are two hotels side by side and the management put the awful British in one and left the seemingly more civilised continentals in the classier hotel next door. we realised that we could share their facilities and the restaurant was very nice indeed with a good range of choice in food and drink (we went all inclusive - otherwise it was 17 euros per night). we had a lovely end room which was well appointed. the nearby beach looks a bit industrial at first glance but in the out of season time we went it did give lovely views at night for an evening promenade. tarragona nearby is a real treat and the hotel is conveniently situated near both the beach, shops and transport links. the attached spa is 30 euros for two days but is a little luxury and we went four times. in summary, don't be put off by the clientele, the hotel is actually really nice. just don't expect much of the entertainment, it's late and the chavs get the first seats for the kids disco and stay there all night.More
