The Hotel Golden Donaire Beach has the location angle down – it’s in a beachfront spot close to the centre of town, and PortAventura theme park is only a few minutes’ drive away.
Location is the watchword here. Bars, restaurants and a waterpark are less than 10 minutes’ walk away, and El Racó Beach – a wide stretch of golden sand – edges the hotel’s grounds. PortAventura’s close by, too.
Sea views come courtesy of the pool terrace and bar – some bedrooms offer them, too. And there’s lots in the way of activities, with things like badminton, archery and water polo on offer.
Available from May 2017. Designed for 3 to 11-year-olds, our Kids’ Clubs by Family Life offer daytime activities, five times a week. To ensure all activities suit your little and not-so-little ones, we’ve split the Clubs into age groups and tailored the activities for each. Just like in our Family Life resorts, there’s Bamse Club for 3 to 5-year-olds and @611 Club for 6 to 11-year olds, so you and your kids get a taste of the full experience. For your peace of mind, all of our Kids’ Club team are trained to UK standards by TUI, and have undergone relevant checks.
Beautiful hotel sent on beach front. Outside bar to sit and watch sunset. Out door and heated indoor pools. Steam room.
Rooms spacious with balcony. Double bed but a tad hard for my liking. Bathroom could do with a refurb. Rooms cleaned every day and fresh towels left. Safe costs â¬30 with â¬10 deposit.
Restaurant large and all food served buffet style. Plenty of choice for breakfast, full English, continental, pancakes, fruit, yogurts.
Dinner was fish at least two choices of meat, veg, potatoes, chips, soup, cheeses, salad, a wide verity of sweets. Pasta dishes and burgers. Something for everyone.
Hotel has plenty of lifts.
Turn left at main road to Ann's legends bar, try a Cocktail or two and rock n roll bingo on sun n Thursday night. Beautiful home made food if your half board as we were.
There's shops and a tobacconist 5 mins walk right at the main road.
Plenty of restaurants and bar on the strip.
Never fails to impress
I couldn't begin to express. We had , as usual, a brilliant time here. So much so that we returned twice last year. Reception staff went above and beyond to help if we needed it. The restaurant staff and the food were fantastic as were the bar staff, especially in the beach bar. All set for our next trip in 18 days time and it can't come quick enough. Thank you to all at Donaire for making our hard earned trips so enjoyable. See you all soon.More
Best holiday ever! Only Family holidays! Going again this year, definite all inclusive!
I think it was a really great holiday, mainly for families with children from 1-18 my son had the best time in his life with all the activities and friends he met on holiday. My son is 13 and id say for teenagers is fantastic football and vollyball on the beach which is a 10 second walk from the hotel lots of fun activties during to do with the hotel staff. There is also water aerobics in the pool for the adults which is really fun.
It was fantastic for me as a mum who came with my husband and son as i met many woman with their kids and had a great time with my husband and new friends!
It was also very nice just to relax on the beds by the pool while your kids are off safe having fun! All inclusive was great with lovely drinks like cocktails to slushes which you could get any time.
The room was good very good for a 3 star nice and tidy, nice bathroom FANTASTIC view could see the beds and pool the beach the lovely sea and the shops which was fantastic. There is an indoor pool with a sauna which is also very relaxing.
The night is great really fantastic especially for all the kids to have dance their is a bingo which every one gets involved. Lots of music and really just having a great time. The staff are really great when its the night time but are all the way through!
The water park and theme park in Portaventura are great a lovely day out and you can get their from a bus 5 mins away from the hotel which takes 25 mins to get to porteventura they are both two great days out for kids and adults!
There is a smaller waterpark down the road for smaller children and lots of shops on the road with restraints and amusements which is a great night walk. Around 8ish is a dolphin show down the road which is really fantastic and ensure to go.
In conclusion, i think it is a fantasic hotel to go for a family with hundreds of things to do or just relax lovely food and great staff!More
Just got back from this hotel and did enjoy it there, but Thomson has this as a 4T hotel which when you get there you will see 3*. the rooms are a bit smaller than i'm used too and no fridge in the room, but on whole ok oh and the walls are paper thin be carefull you can here a lot. The food is ok and the staff are friendly and always happy too help. The hotel is clean and tidy. This hotel is very much geared up for familys so if like me you like adult only hotels this won't be for you, otherwise you will be very happy as there is plenty too do including a kids club run by thomsons. There is a good pool area plenty of sunbeds. The all inclusive package do charge for some drinks. there is also a resort tax too pay when you arrive we were charged 7euros for the week, safe is 20euros for the week plus 10 deposit. Aslo try the legends bear which is about 200 hundred yards away beer is cheap and the food is great.More

Hotel fine, but dont come here for peace and quiet. Clientel not the best.Really family hotel. 3 star at best.
Hotel itself is fine. Food and drink ok in general, but not the sort of place to have any peace from the noisy families, Jeremy Kyle types etc. I would not return.
plus points 1st.
Good beach location
Rooms basic but clean, beds okish.
Staff , generally polite and amenable
Drinks of general good standard
Something for everyone to eat, although repetitive at times
Reception reacted quickly to any issues we had
Quick check-in, although there was few checking in
Some English channels on TV
Could get WIFI in most areas without issues.
nice flat walk could be had along prom and back via shops
Noisy in all areas
Entertainment dominated by kids, some around 4 years old who wree on the dancefloor gone 11pm.
All inclusive ends at 11pm
Not always sure of what's included on all inclusive
Cocktails weak and not worth bothering with
Cheesy, cheap entertainment, bingo every night. We didn't want to be in the room tbh. but could hear it droning on most nights in the comfy lounge area at the back.
Rude bar waiters (especially Blas), miserable looking. sour faced older main bar guys ( who seemed to ignore the All inclusive people for the payers
Dining room very crowded , very noisy at times, more like Hi di hi/Butlins , people pushing in and rude at times.
Only allowed 1 drink with your meal.
Food not always warm and could be undercooked.
Orange juice too lumpy and sweet.
Poolside - sunbeds packed together and only around 120 max. No parasols to protect you from sun
Pool very cold
Noisy, irritating "music" played all day around pool
4 x lifts , which were very busy at times and bypassed your floor many occasions
Our Thomson rep (Jade) waste of space, like a chocolate fireguard. Did not tell us about local buses, fares,T10 bus ticket offer, beaches to visit, taxis, local amenities, good place to go. Supposed to be a Swap box, but not there until last few days. Too preoccupied with selling Thomson expensive trips. Go to the Plana shop in the resort for better and cheaper.
Safe not cheap at around 30euors for 11 night stay
No area for smokers to be kept segregated from non smokers
Check-in was extremely bust at time with big coachloads of Spanish visitor's
Parents not keeping their kids in check - kids ran around the corridors, shouting, banging doors etc etc.
View of massive refinery from window, but didn't bother us.
Not the prettiest of beaches and man made
My advice to anyone thinking of coming here is. If you are a family then great, if not and you are looking for peace and quiet in a nice quality hotel then don't come here.
Take time to explore the other safe lovely beaches from La Pineda to Salou and onto Cambrills. Buy a T10 bus ticket at 15.5 euros. Top up is about 12 euros. You get 10 x 1 way trips from Cambrills to Tarragona zone areas. Visit Barcelona but buy a open top bus ticket to travel around at 25 euros all day. Book early to go into the famous Sagria famila cathedral as it gets packed with tourists. Monserrat and Sitges excusing was nice but again Monserrat very packed with tourists. Tarragona is nice for a cheap day out. Market day there is Tuesday, lots of history to see.Salou is good for a little bit of shopping etc. Walk to Salou could be by coast ways , around 1.25 hours of road, around 1 hour, but quicker if you can walk at speed obviously. We walked and toured a lot as not mush to do in La Pineda and the weather was not good for the 1st 4 days or so, but came back with a tan. Thomson flights not the best, full of kids, noise, poor quality expensive on board food ect.
good luck and I hope you get what you may seek here, but we wont be back as we like to explore. Saying that we would love to go back to Barcelona for a mini break sometime.More
