Wonderful view and near the beach. The pool was a calm place in the middle of the neighbourhood. Perfect for small children if you have.

The sound of the surf
Just spent October half term at this property with my husband and his two kids (11 and 15) and we were very impressed by it. The development is lovely almost like a little Spanish village with whitewashed houses, terracotta rooftiles, little arched walkways and mature foliage and flowers everywhere.
The house itself was very spacious downstairs with a lovely open plan kitchen/diner/longe opening onto a large balcony with that fantastic view over the sea. I could sit out there for hours day and night listening to and watching the surf! The kitchen was immaculate with very modern appliances, a good selection of utensils and pans and a breakfast bar with stools. Also a round table with four chairs as well as a large dining table and more chairs.
There is a large flat screen TV and satellite TV channels but out of about 60 channels not one was in English (not even the usual CNN News!) so we were pleased we had taken a range of DVDs with us to watch. my husband was relieved to find one channel however which showed Premiership football matches (although the commentary was in Spanish!).
Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. It feels less spacious up there but adequate. The master bedroom has patio doors again opening onto another balcony which is the width of house, again with those sea views. The bathroom was the only disappointment - very small and in need of updating. I think it may be a problem only having one loo if more than 4 people were staying there!
The communal pool looks lovely but is not heated so not really useable in October! You would need a car really to stay here as it is quite a way from the main resort areas although there are buses. A few small shops and bars/restaurants locally but most were shut in October. A better selection of restaurants at Cambrils and Tarragona (a proper Spanish town) had a lovely old town and a wide variety of places to eat.
Only 10 minutes to Port Aventura (by car) but be aware that you have to pay for parking each day (7 euros) on top of your entrance fee unless you park outside and walk across.
Beautiful! I had high expectations of the property before I arrived but was still surprised by the beautiful view and surroundings. The beach is a close walk and stores are quite easy to reach. Renting a car is definitely a must, although finding your way around can be tricky the first time, but it is worth your time and money to do the driving yourself.
The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The pool was available but we mostly kept to the beaches.
Word of caution: this house is not for those with physical disabilities that keep them from walking up stairs.
Vackert beläget hus med utsikt över havet.
Alla bekvämligheter finns i huset och läget är faktiskt vackert med utsikt över havet. Det enda negativa var långsam internet.

Salou is a tourist and residential city that has consolidated its capital role as the leisure and service centre of the Costa Daurada through the diversity of its offer and the quality and quantity of its tourism facilities. It is also home to the main agent for regional dynamism, the Costa Daurada's attraction par excellence: the theme park Universal Port Aventura, which consolidates the Salou product and its sphere of influence as the most important leisure centre on the Catalonian seaboard. Mild year-round temperatures; safe, orderly and shallow beaches offering all services and equipment; an urban design plan that gives centre stage to green spaces, plants, points of historical, architectural and monumental interest; a varied entertainment and leisure offer with highly dynamic sectors (shops and restaurants); and quality facilities have all helped to turn Salou into the 'Capital of the Costa Daurada' and to earn it the top rating for Family Tourist Destinations in Catalonia.
