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.

Enjoyed our visit
Just back from this hotel after a weeks holiday The staff are all friendly and helpful. We were concerned about the food after reading some of the reviews before going but we loved the food and lots of choices for all inclusive and plenty of choices for snacks during the day. Fresh fruit available and ice cream all day. The rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels and have hairdryer and shower gel. I did find the walls thin and could hear people through the wall, the first night I thought someone had come into our room, soon could used to it The entertainment was good at night but it was 10 o'clock before it started. I would love to go back again soon. I have to say a lot of school children there at this time of year on school trips More
Another great stay at the calypso
Just returned from our 3rd stay the Calypso and as usual it was fantastic. The restaurant looks great after its revamp, however queues are longer due to there only being one counter serving hot food. I feel the previous lay out worked better. The staff are some of the friendliest staff we've met in a Spanish hotel, particularly Lola on the Al Fresco grill. Our rooms were in the Calypso 2 facing the pool and our only issue was the hoards of school children that were loud first thing in the morning. The school kids were not to be seen during the day until about 5pm when they descended on the pool area. This was probably our only real issue, there were ALOT of school parties but I don't imagine this is an issue during peak season. The rooms are immaculate and they are cleaned daily. We will be returning next May- there is nowhere we would rather stay in Salou. More

Medplaya calypso Salou
Me and my wife stayed here from 7th may till 20th. Can't fault this hotel in any way! I read a few reviews on here before we went and whilst we was there, couldn't believe what people was complaining about. Hotel is clean, staff are extremely nice and helpful. Also the entertainment team day and night are funny and really great. Looking to go back next year!!!More
First of all we weren't meant to stay in the hotel the booking got changed from oasis park to calypso was not pleased but it was a nice hotel... adults entertainment was good some nights but it doesn't start untill 10 and it's only on for an hour also not much else to do in the hotel... food is crap some food is cooked on hot plates but everytime I took chicken from it, it was still pink and raw in the middle not a very good variety of food atall... one night for dinner I had to have a plate of chips and beans! Ended up going to burger king as soon as we left the restaurant. Ques for breakfast and dinner are an absolute disgrace waiting 45 minutes to an hour for your dinner that's not up to scratch is very unamusing if your visiting the hotel is wouldn't go all inclusive it's a total waste of money.. would return but would be only coming for the surroundings More
There was not much choice for hot food and the layout of the restaraunt was inadequate, so quite often had to queue. Food sometimes only warm. Pool area was dirty and we did not see the pool area spray jetted once whilst we were there. The floor was very dusty due to it not being cleaned. The sun beds were not washed down and there were plastic cups around the pool area for days. Rooms were basic, and hotel could do with redecorating, it looked very neglected. More
