Hotel Golden Donaire Beach  

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.

Summer holidays

We stayed here as a family of adults for two weeks in June. The hotel is a very friendly family focused hotel, the staff are excellent and very helpful. The hotel was lovely and clean and the food was delicious with good variety and it was plentiful. The hotel is located right by the beach with a lovely flat seafront for walks. We all really enjoyed and would recommend a stay here.More

Late deal holiday

Exceeded expectations, considering this is only a 3 star hotel we were surprised at the quality of the food and friendliness of the hotel staff, the location is brilliant as it is directly on the beach. We loved the open dining area as you could sit overlooking the beach while having your lunch,dinner or when you were having a drink. There are a few down sides to the hotel as there is very little cupboard space but the good outways the bad.More


Excellent Hotel and Facilities

A very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Excellent location with easy access to the beach and location attractions. Central location to visit Tarragona or Salou for a day trip. Buses run very frequently and are reasonably priced. I would recommend this hotel the food was varied in selection and of good quality. Staff all veryour friendly and great with the kids. Only negative could do with more lifts as during peak times getting a lift was a lottery. Would visit again.More

Check in..... When we arrived it was after 9pm so we were given a card with the room number on to go straight in for food and told to leave bags in bag room, I mentioned we wanted a sea view and were willing to pay extra ( I had already emailed to ask for one but was told it would be on availability) on returning to reception we asked for a safe €30 with €10 returned on checkout and you also have to pay €7 per adult tax for the resort, the girl was adding this all up when I mentioned the sea view again which she promptly started adding up how much it would be for the week which she added on to the original amount to be paid, we were given the exact same card back with the exact same room number on it so we already had a sea view and I felt like I had been ripped off, after leaving the reception I was even more annoyed after thinking about it and wanted to go back to say something but my partner didn't want a fuss and we had already been prepared to pay, just be careful it doesn't happen to you, the room we had was 356 which was very small and basic but adequate for a week, location is fab, beach is fab, hotel great for a 3 star, food ok if you love fish, we always found something to eat though, if you've got kids you can't go wrong at this hotel, the bar upstairs was run by grumpy old men who treat you like cattle, they are worked very hard though, the bar downstairs was lovely and we spent all our time in there, the resort had a bit of everything, shops, bars, restaurants. Kids rides I loved it so much I'm thinking of going back on my own with my 6 year old granddaughter, the pool was a nightmare and we only spent one day there you have to queue from 7.45 am if you want to get a bed, people put towels out and don't go back for hours, there's just not enough beds for such a big hotel, weren't to the beach and had to pay, it was €5 euro per bed and €6 for a bed with shade but you got a free drink from the little beach bar, all in all I would go back but not for a main holiday.More

Entertaining Family Holiday

Just back from a family holiday from Golden Donaire. Myself, Wife and 6 year old daughter had a great week away. The hotel was clean, food was nice although perhaps a bit repetitive in terms of the cuisine. Entertainment throughout the day and night was great for the little one who had a ball and there was always something for the adults to get involved with. The entertainment guys were great with the kids I have to say. Bar staff were great with a special mention to the forever smiling 'Brian'. Lots of kids about during the week who were in and out the pools. They were a bit loud at times and some a bit heavy with balls flying about everywhere, but they were enjoying themselves, which when you are on a family holiday with a young child we were happy to accept. The firework display from the beach was incredible on the Saturday night. The hotel was also a stones throw away from the waterpark and the theme park was also within range. Lots to do and well worth the price paid. The funniest part of the every day was watching from the balcony as all the families rushed out the door at 8am to fight for the sun beds, unbelievable scenes 🙈 We went home happy with our hotel selection so can't say more than that.More
