Nice apartment next to great beach.
We’ve had a great holiday in this apartment. The apartment is well representer in the pictures and the area around is great for a relaxing holiday, and suitable for children as long as you keep the standard eye open with regards to there beeing a balcony etc. We were 3 adults and 2 children aged 5 & 2. A great thing we found with the apartment was that it is placed in more or less constant shade which makes it comfortable with regards to temperature all day and allows nice use of the balcony in the hottest parts of the day for i.e. a nice lunch.. Two particular drawbacks under current state, none of us except the 5yr old slept well and found the beds quite uncomfortable (temp. In rooms, great with AC in both bedrooms), the letter should strongly consider upgrading the beds.. The other drawback is that the doors to the balcony have non-adjustable auto-locks on the inside which won’t allow for them to be opened from the outside, should a child find it fun to close the door(s) with everyone outside, you may have a serious problem. With precautions that can of course be avoided (keep both doors open and we put a “large” item in one of the openings). All in all this apartment is a good option for a good holiday in Salou. Salou is a nice place, we liked it there but did find it a bit too touristy and maybe a bit bland. Refreshing with a trip or two to Tarragona for a bit more diversity in feel/culture/shops/food. Tarragona beaches though, not as good in my opinion, unless you like swimming amongst ships laying at anchorage... So, bathing at the beautiful beach(es) in Salou and a maybe few of the days take a trip to Tarragona in the afternoon/evening is recommended..
On its own merits, Salou has become one of the main tourist centres on the Costa Dorada. Along its extensive coast, protected by Cape Salou, miles of sandy, beautiful beaches and coves with fine sand give way to one another, enjoying an exceptional climate and offering infinite possibilities for enjoying the sea and for all kinds of water sports. The long Paseo de Les Palmeres is one of this town's most symbolic places, where leisure and fun are guaranteed. Salou's surroundings enable you to discover lovely landscapes or spend an unforgettable day at Port Aventura theme park, one of the largest in Spain.
