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.
Skytours kids’ club is run by our sister company, Thomson. Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, it offers two hours of activities, five days a week. And that includes at least three evenings. The club is split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions three days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least two of them on duty at all times.
I have been going to Golden Donaire since i was 2 years old (now 29) it alwats has a special place in our hearts as we used to go there with my nan when she was alive, so after a few years of trying different resorts we decided to go back to la pineda, We first went in june for 11 nights and although there has been a refub of late the hotel is still as amazing as ever! We were all inclusive this time round and everything from the food to the service was top notch.
The staff as usual were great on reception especially Karen (Bias as family friend) and also xenia (think thats her name). We checked into our room and paid a little extra for a see view, everything is well appointed in the room. We then went down to the beach bar and i have to say they are the best bar staff in the whole hotel!! Alex, Ivan, Martin and salvador couldnt do enough and were super fast with drinks orders, we even went to a local bar with ivan and alex 1 afternoon and met there family and friends and watched a real madrid game with them, they truly are genuine nice people. People on here say the bar staff upstairs can be rude, although we never once has a problem with them i can kind of see how their sense of humour can come across as cold.
Blas is the stand out waiter upstairs hes always cracking jokes etc. the only thing i could suggest around the pool area is parasols, yes there is a area with selter but if those are taken then the heat can become a bit much, la pineda itself hasnt got alot of what you would call a young scene but then it is a family resort, if your looking for a party then its only 3 ish euros into salou by bus for clubs and bars etc.
The entertainment at the hotel was ok, david and the guys work so hard all day to make everyones holiday the best, annd also the life guard jona is a great laugh and really friendly, I went clubbing with him 1 evening at it was funny. They also had a seal tribute act, a 80s act and a take that tribute all of whom we became personal friends with and as well as the hotel they were the reason we went back in september for a week.
All in all a great all round hotel and resort cant fault it made some good friends with a few other guests as well!
We have already booked for this year going on the 10thMore
Fantastic holiday! 2 hour flight and a short transfer. Hotel is right on the beach and shops, restaurants and a water park are in walking distance. Salou is a 10 mins 2 euros bus drive so good place to visit. Really good value for money I would certainly stay here again.More
The hotel is beautiful and clean the staff are nice and very helpful. The all inclusive list needs to be more specific on what they serve and what you have to pay for. The food was nice and diffrent choice everyday and the entertainment was diffrent and good.More
Perfect family holiday
Went on holiday last 2 weeks of August 2015, Two adults + 2 teenagers. The variety, quantity & quality of food was very good and suited all tastes. Amazed at how the staff managed to keep on top of serving so many guests and remain so polite and cheerful. The daytime activities arranged and supervised by David and his team was also very good. Activities included, water polo, archery, pistol shooting, darts, volleyball, bingo etc, etc. all were made to feel welcome & involved regardless of age or ability. The evening entertainment was very good ( especially the Take That tribute band ). Obviously, 3 star hotel the rooms are basic, but the rooms where clean and adequate for a summer holiday. Situated adjacent to the beach, but nice & quiet after evening entertainment finished Would definitely go back.More
