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.

Needs to be updated
We got back from a week in this Hotel yesterday, I have read other reviews , and some I agree with and not others, the food is not as bad as some people say, in fact if you could not find something you liked then you at a fussy eater, we stayed half board as all inclusive is not worth it unless you are an alcoholic, the rooms need to be sorted out, we are a couple and had a room with 3 single beds, the Hotel also has a lot of school groups who are not quiet and they seem to be randomly scattered around the Hotel, all it needs is a bit of thought by the management to put school groups and family groups in one or two areas and couples in double rooms somewhere else, they could also have a dress code for the bar, there is nothing worse than some fat person in a pair of shorts that do not fit wandering around in public areas, getting meals can be a bit of a shambles, some times you have to wait around and others you just walk in, saying all that we had a good week for our 48th wedding anniversary More
Under cooked food and house keeping!
My college group of 25 stayed in this hotel from 08.05.2017 to 12.05.2017. The night of the 8th we went down for evening meal to find most of the chicken under cooked and because of this we checked each night up until the 12th to find that each time the chicken was under cooked. Also during our stay at this hotel, in my room there was two of us, we came back from a nice day in Barcelona to find a note from the housekeeping staff telling us to contact reception ASAP, but we also found that the house keeping staff had been searching through out bags and luggage. we went down to reception for them to explain that they needed a letter of proof to show that me and the other girl was part of the college group, our tutor then asked if this is why the house keeping staff went thought the bags and luggage and the woman behind reception said yes. This is completely unacceptable, from then on we put the do not disturb sign on the door which was frequently changed round to other side. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone looking to book. staff were rude and unhelpful.More
Poor hotel, school kids rule.
The positives are it is a reasonably clean hotel with no fighting for sun loungers. The negatives where do I start. For most of the holiday we were over run with loud and poorly disciplined school children of various nationalities. These dominated the hotel. Loud behaviour throughout the night. Screaming, knocking doors and generally being a pain without supervision. Queues for the dining room were horrendous. 25 minutes plus waits due to the large parties and there was no food left especially at breakfast due to other people piling their plates up and wasting food. The food was average at best but undercooked eggs were a speciality and if I had children with me there wouldn't have been a lot to eat. Staff could be rude and dismissive at times and didn't help the rep solve problems. The entertainment was non existent during the day. The adults bar was taken over by children and the main entertainment consisted of Spanish dancing with the odd in-house show or dubious bought in acts. I would not go back. In fact it's put me off salou. Shame as salou is lovely.More
May 2017 holiday
The hotel was lovely, the staff very friendly the swimming pools are lovely but freezing. The only downside the hotel allow coach loads of school children to stay between ages of 12 to 17 a mixture of nationalities who run through the hotel at all hours with no consideration for others.at times it felt like an 18/30 holiday.More
Basic hotel - Not suitable for a school tour.
Realitively good location if staying in Salou where you want cheap and basic facilities, however many schools have been using the hotel in recent weeks, I would not recommend the location to school tours - food very basic and rooms are very clean but need an update. Wifi poor and while staff are relatively friendly the same cannot be said for hotel security who feel it is okay to randomly enter students rooms unannounced and can be very aggressive towards teachers and students. Hotel environment unsafe for students many tourists intoxicated and some aggressive towards students. Bathroom doors tend to lock from the inside, staff are aware of this but will not notify you of this until the suiation arises. Students must pay a deposit and pay for safe which is an additional cost to them. Pool facilities are good and good entertainment facilities for families/students, however overall a unsatisfactory experience. Extremely noisy due to bar, vending machines, live music etc.More
