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.

I stayed a week in June with my daughter and son in law with an all inclusive package. The Reception staff are polite and efficient and there are bowls of sweets on the desk. A safe key for your room is 25 euros with 5 euros back when you return your key. Outside the hotel is an area where you can hire bikes and also a foot shower so you can rinse away sand before entering the hotel. The whole hotel is clean with new laminate flooring and the outside areas are well laid out. The rooms were bright and clean and the beds comfy. There was a tv, full length mirror, desk, bedside cabinets and a wardrobe. The bathroom was a good size and the shower worked well. The towels were a little to worn but serviceable and always more available if you asked. Shower gel, shampoo, shower cap, tissues and comb were provided. Also a hairdryer in the bathroom. The balcony has 2 chairs and a table with an ashtray. The restaurant was large and very clean, staff came to your table immediately to take your drinks order. Breakfast - choice of rolls, brown wholemeal and white bread to toast. cereals, yoghurts, fruit, cheese, ham, salami, pancakes, croissants, sweet rolls, bacon. sausages. tomatoes, mushrooms, fried egg, boiled eggs. There was a diabetic table with jams, rolls and biscuits. Drinks machines serves black coffee, cappuccino , tea and milky coffee Also fruit juices and water. Very few hotels in Spain, unless 5 star, have drinks in the rooms so if you want a drink before breakfast take a travel kettle with you. Lunch and Dinner - choice of soup salads, pasta, chicken. pork. fish, vegetables, fries, olives, cheese, burgers, paella, pizza, omelettes, chicken nuggets, bread, pastries, cakes, mousse, fruit, ice cream and sweets for children. You would have to be a very picky eater indeed if you couldn't find something you liked to eat each day. The snack bar sold toasties, hot dogs, burgers and pizzas. The bar staff very friendly and efficient and all the tables were constantly cleared and wiped down. CafÃ© solo is an espresso and cafÃ© Americano is a black coffee. There is an indoor and fresh water outside pool also a children's pool and a jaccuzzi , plenty of sun loungers and tables. There are no parasols but Thompson have a swap shop area in reception were you can get beach stuff, sun cream etc for free and just leave what you don't want when you go. The beach is very clean and the sea goes out a long way before it shelves, so very safe for children. You do get pestered to buy from traders on the beach but a simple' No thank You' and they leave you alone. I did buy a nice wooden ornament for 10 euros, but expect to haggle! Outside the hotel are 2 shops selling water, sweets, postcards, beach wear etc A 5 litre bottle of water was 1 euro Further along the beach there are bars, restaurants and shops, also a tobacconist. The evening entertainment is what you expect on holiday - a bit cheesy but good fun. There is bingo every night and the reps work hard to provide a variety of entertainment, it finishes at midnight. I would certainly return to this hotel, the few minor set backs were a slight smell of drains now and then and a bit of trouble with the air con but these are problems that the hotel are fixing. My room was by the main road and close to the recycling area so if you are a light sleeper then ask for a quiet room This 3 star hotel is easily 4 stars and one of the best I have stayed at in Spain.More
Just got back from an 11 night stay.We had a great holiday . The hotel is right on the beach and the sea is beautiful and clear great if you have children.The food was good lots of variety and the sweets were great lots of choice. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful .The rooms are not very big but the balconys have great veiws if you overlook the pool. But expect it to be noisey until the entertainment finishes at midnight , this didnt bother us as we were watching it. The entertainment was quite good. The bus stop is right outside the hotel only takes 15 mins to salou.Will definitly be going back lovely long walk along the front. Only thing I would change is they need some parassols round the pool .More

Mixed feelings about this hotel.
The hotel is in a fantastic position,right next to the beach, the staff we found were very helpful and friendly. The bar area, pool and circulation areas were nicely presented, we requested a high floor overlooking the side road for quietness and got it. The room was ok, small with a large balcony, very little storage, no fridge and tea making facilities although we do take our own kettle. The furniture is sparse and very dated, we had a bedside table and a small side table with one draw, the air conditioning worked well. The beds were very comfortable but don't look at the mattress covers, the maid changed our beds once whilst we were in our room which we agreed was ok, on changing the sheets we saw the stains on the said covers YUK ! The bathroom was functional, but the towels were well passed there best, very thin and not very absorbent. Our sheets were changed every couple of days. Now the dining room! plenty of choice but food on the hot counter looked bland and undercooked, as with the evening meal very little on the hot counter looked appertising, the salad bar was good together with the desserts. We know that the beach is just outside but we wished that some form of dress code was introduced, wasn't nice trying to eat your meal with scantily dressed persons in all shape and sizes around you, in addition we wished parents had more control of the children in the dining room. We enjoyed the holiday very much and the resort was lovely, we chose this hotel for the position and reviews But it must be remembered that this is a 3 star rating and what you get is ok for this level I suppose, we have always booked 4 star with Thompson and know now the extra star is usually worth every penny.More

" Great Hotel "
We went on holiday to this Hotel last year ( last week in August-1st week in September 2014 ) The food was excellent plenty of choice all of the staff are very friendly and helpful. We only did the half board option but if you wanted to you could upgrade to all inclusive.The hotel is right on the beach and safe for all ages. The room was very clean and the only drawback was that there was no fridge and the room was a little on the small side, but at the end of the day all you really use the room for is to shower and sleep.We would not hesitate in going back again in the future.More
