We stayed at Belvedere in August. Staff were friendly and helpful on arrival, although did stop to talk to their friends a couple of times while they were sorting us out. Once rooms were eventually ready they we found they were spacious and clean with a view overlooking the pool. Hotel was completely full so very busy everywhere. Food was very nice, but a bit repetitive but servers in the restaurant were very quick and efficient in clearing away and relaying tables once people had finished, so never difficult to get a decent table.
The only issue we really had was that people were queueing at 7 am to put their towels on the sunbeds, even though this was apparently not allowed. Many of those people didn't show for most of the day, so it was impossible on most days to find a sunbed if you weren't prepared to get up and queue at the crack of dawn.
Very conveniently located for shops, bars, beach and buses. Did a couple of the excursions offered from the hotel and were very pleased with them.More
Myself, my partner and children have just returned from this hotel and have had a really good stay. We were at this same hotel the same time last year too and after a successful trip that time so we had high hopes and it didnt dissapoint. The reception staff were most helpful and nothing was to much trouble. The food was yet again very nice with a good choice. The pool was clean and tidy and the spa was nice. My only dissapointments were the gym was none existant as the bike and rower were both broken and this time around we really wanted a pool view side balcony as the road side balconies we had last year and it was noisy with the road etc so yet again we were put on road side even tho i paid a paid a coulple of pounds more for a pool view and even emailed the hotel a couple of weeks before to request this (they never responed). All in all a very good experience and a big shout out to the cleaners/maids who do a fantastic job and deserve lots of credit.More

Stayed for a week in this hotel, reasonably pried. Very well located as it is close to the pubs, restaurants and shops of Salou and is also only a 10/15 minute walk from Port Aventura theme park. The rooms were a good size with a good sized bathroom. Although in need of an update (not really 1st priority) it was well maintained and cleaned everyday. Bad points about the room is that you have to pay for the safe, I don't mind a deposit but it was 25â¬ for 6 nights with a 3â¬ deposit which I felt quite expensive. My room had a lovely pool view however at night you can hear the entertainment downstairs which is a bit annoying especially being on the 4th floor with the balcony doors closed. The food was ok not brilliant but not poor. Being half board I didn't sample the lunch menu, I only had breakfast and tea. Everyday for breakfast was the same, a continental buffet with a choice of hams, cheeses, cereal and toast. There was also cooked breakfasts available including sausage, egg, bean, chips and there was also chance to get an omelette. Hot drinks, water and juices were available from the machines as well. However come to the evening meal be aware that there is NO DRINKS FREE, you HAVE to pay for drink. A litre of water was 2,20 and that's all I got on my 1st evening, I didn't drink with any other evening meals for the duration of the holiday. This was very frustrating as there was no notice to say that drinks would be charged. After the initial shock of having to pay for my drink having not been told, after my meal I went down the road to the local shop and bought 5 litres of water for 0,90â¬ which I kept in my room and drank before I went for my evening meal. The food at the evening meal however was good, again a choice of salad and cooked food; chips,rice, chicken, fish, pork. There was also a choice of paella and pizza. whilst for desert there was lots of different cakes available, yoghurts and ice cream. The hotel facilities were also good, the spa, sauna and steam room were very nice although the gym equipment was not working. The pool and pool area was nice, there was people reserving sunbeds, leaving for the morning then coming back and not using their sunbeds which shouldn't have been reserved anyway although most places you visit this is a common problem. All in all an average hotel, you get what you pay for, but the main plus apart from the cheap price is the location, which is hard to beat.More
Better than expected
This hotel took me a little by surprise as it was better than I was expecting for a 3 star.
Food good always something you like as plenty of choice and Spanish night seafood fab.
Room average but clean, not the biggest but quite adequate.
Staff helpful and pleasant especially Hector on the outside bar.
Quite noisy, lots of children.
Very small pool area.
Entertainment at the hotel across the road soooooo loud if your rooms that side don't expect an early night.More

Great value holiday!
This is our second stay at the Belvedere and it didn't fail to meet our expectations. If I had to comment on anything it would be the lack of choice of vegetarian dishes (luckily I like salad and vegetables but nothing like veg lasagne or veggie burgers etc, no staple) and also that the drinks are overpriced and being near the end of the season they were rapidly running out of everything until we resorted to buying out own spirits at half the price from the local shop then just ordering the mixer from the hotel bar. Pleased that this year the Maitre D wasn't as touchy-feely which made me quite uncomfortable last year - maybe someone had commented on it! Shame that Nuna has left as the new animacion team don't quite cut it. Nuna got everyone involved and was great fun. She seemed to manage most of the entertainment single-handedly yet the whole team who are there now still aren't as good. They clearly try though so that's something. I'm sure the main guy is on speed or something tho as he is completely hyper, and a bit overfriendly - having never even spoken to him I was shocked when he grabbed my shoulders as he walked past my chair to ask if I was going to watch the entertainment. I have chronic pain and fatigue which affects my muscles and fibrous tissue and he made me jump so badly that I really hurt my neck, shoulders and back :/ I know he didn't mean to cause harm but if perhaps say I was autistic or otherwise sensitive this could be really inappropriate.
Other than my personal couple of little bug-bears, I would highly recommend this hotel!More
