A good pool scene and a handy setting close to the beach – just a couple of reasons this big, bright hotel wins the vote.
This place is just a 10-minute walk from Salou’s beach, one of the best sandy stretches on the Costa Dorada. It’s in a lively little sea port, with a raft of shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep.
The Calypso comes with lots of activities. There are 2 main pools for starters. The 10-pin bowling alley wins plaudits on TripAdvisor, too.

50th birthday surprise holiday
I booked this holiday as a surprise present for my husbands 50th birthday, I booked it all online so it was really hit and miss if it was going to be a good holiday, When we arrived the staff were really helpful from the start our room was quite basic but we don't want to be spending much time in there so it was fine, we had our room cleaned to a good standard every day, the hotel was lovely and clean and the staff were so friendly and the food was really nice including a champagne breakfast every morning, the hotel was a short walk to a lovely beach and all the shops and restaurants and cafes, if you want to walk further there's a lovely promenade were theres a beautiful fountain and a marina were you can have a trip out on a catamaran.. All in all a fantastic holiday so much so we are going back in June More

Pretty Good Family Friendly Hotel
Had a lovely week here full board with the family and only really slept and ate at the hotel. The buffet was great, the children loved it. They tried hard to change the theme each night but there were reliable similarities for when the children felt less adventurous. The rooms wasn't too salubrious but it was within our tight budget The entertainment was pretty good but most of all we enjoyed the lovely deserted nearby beaches walking distance from the hotel. It's pretty close to town - about a 10 min stroll with children and on a bus route if you want to get to Port Aventura theme park. More
Nice stay overall
We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a bad start as there was not much information about what to do for the day time activities for my two boys 8 & 10 years but soon realised not all of the entertainment staff came around to the pool with the bridge to inform you of activities going on or explain where to go to join in don't know why as that was the biggest pool and the only pool that let you have inflatables in and all the kids were at this pool. So we had to go around with the kids to ask about what was on next and where so they could join in and we soon got to know the times of the activities and the kids soon started to make friends, they started to win and get certificates, this is the only hotel that I have been to that gives them out straight away and not on the stage at night which was a bit strange. There were two day entertainment staff that we thought were outstanding (Michael & Valarie ) the rest were ok apart from Joan he was lazy but a nice person but think needs to get his finger out and listen to the kids when he's spoken to! The night time entertainment was the best I have seen for consistency really good and great mini disco. Food Was average in the main restaurant and can get repetitive after 3 days as it's normally is after 10 days for me and can not understand why at lunch and dinner you had to que for drinks at a separate bar with one bartender as my meal was getting cold and family had nearly finished theirs strange and not good! Until we discovered the alfresco restaurant it was heaven and saved our holiday plenty to choose from and children always had a choice not available in the main restaurant also you could not meet nicer people the chef and other staff were very pleasant and did everything to help. You also get 1 voucher per week to eat posh style with waiter service very nice don't forget to book early. Crisps and ice cream available all day and night. The Bar at night was different than normal you had to stand in the all -inclusive line and self catering customers in a different line this was not acceptable as we have already paid up front so why are the self catering people served first is beyond me even though we tip the bar staff you are still left waiting! The bar staff where nice apart from the English black guy who pretend not to understand and was quite nasty to kids making one of ours cry. Sun beds where fine apart people putting towels on chairs very sad to see and smoking was not allowed around the pool but it did not stop them.Blowing smoke in are faces and tab butts all over the floor. Rooms Great pool view We're basic and quite small with lack of space to store suitcases no draws apart from a tiny one in the bedside unit. Bunk beds were awkward as the child had to stand on the top of the adults bed to get to the tiny ladder and found it awkward during the night to get in and out without standing on my head. Pool Pool with bridge more suited for young children and inflatables, no sign for toilet which is hidden around the side of the building, Larger and very deep pool no inflatables allowed but there was a professional water trampoline there and a slide once a week. Baby pool with water feature and one very small baby pool next to bar area. Note if people sit next to the edge of a pool they should probably no yes they will get splashed the odd time and stop complaining when they do or move kids are just trying to have fun.More
