I stayed in this hotel the first 2 weeks of October. I had asked for a room on a low floor and we had a room on floor 2 with a pool view!
The room was clean and spacious - large wardrobe space, free fridge, safety deposit box (payable). The beds were lovely and firm, the room was cleaning was daily and couldn't be faulted. Shampoo/Showel gel was provided in small bottles for free. It was very quiet at night (entertainment finished about 11/12pm).
The pool area was lovely and big with plenty of space for everyone. The pool area wasn't opened until 9am which was great as it prevented sunbed reserving - not that you needed to! It was peaceful and relaxing.
The restaurant - I would give 3.5* for the food. It was what you expect from this level of hotel and mass catering. I was particularly impressed with the dessert selections, far more than the usual small square cakes and sugar-goo that you normally get. There were always flans/gateaux/cakes/individual patisserie style cakes and some nights a chocolate fountain.
Breakfast was 'sit anywhere' and when it was busy for dinner, you were taken to a table which was nice.
The hotel is in an excellent location, minutes away from the seafront/promenade and shops.
There is a small book exchange area in the foyer area. The free wifi in the reception also stretches to the pool area and the room (as we were on the 2nd floor). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return. The staff were all very friendly and hard working.
Nice places to go for lunch/evening drinks/coffee:
Amigos - follow the hotel round to the right and its just round the corner. very friendly and hospitable staff and good prices.
La Ibense - coffee shop/gelaterie on the front - lovely for a coffee and watch the world go by
Talaia - on the front, first bar as you walk left round the peninsula. Nice bar and friendly staff, good selection of wines.More
Great hotel, centrally located.
Visited September for two weeks. Not disappointed, great food, immaculate rooms and excellent service by Sante the waiter, &filipino, and the gang,
Initially asked for a drink and waited for 20 minutes as the bar manager was talking to friends. eventually he offered to make it but we had decided by this time we didn't want the drink. He was actually quite rude, but the rest were great. Central location, 5 mins from beach, bars and shops. Bus stop and train stop outside of hotel,, overall hood value for money And will definitely return for our 4th stay.More

Hotel Great but food was poor.
As some other people have said, this is a good hotel, rooms are always cleaned, towels changed, staff are polite and helpful, pool area is fine, and in a great location.
The only thing that let it down for me was the food, I thought it was really poor, evening meals more so than breakfast. Veal burgers and hotdogs in a 4 star hotel, soup seemed to be the same every night under a different title, so we had to eat out a few times.
Its a pity, because the hotel is fine. Somebody actually said, its because its the end of the season and they were just using up what was left in the freezers.
We stayed in Delfin Park same week last year and food was much better.More

our second visit.
This was the second time my wife and myself have stayed at the H10 Salou Princess. The hotel is ideally located and is only a short walk from the beach, and there are many shops and bars which are nearby. The rooms are clean and tidy and the staff are very approachable and always there to help if needed.
About several minutes walk from the hotel is the Plana Bus office, from here you are able to book many interesting trips to the surrounding areas and towns. A good family day out is the Portaventura theme park, here there are many different rides and shows. If you like markets there is a big one at a nearby place called Bonavista. During our stay we had the excellent services of a Thompson's holiday rep named Marley, through her we booked a downhill cycle ride down the Spanish hills, and boy did we enjoy it.
As always meal times are a treat, and there is always high quality food available. The hotel's entertainment is ok.
Overall the Salou Princess is a great place to stay, and I can say that my wife and myself will definitely return again.
The hotel's manager Emille and her team of hard working staff are a credit to the H10 chain.More

Don't be put off !
After booking this holiday I was a bit concerned after reading some of the reviews... Please give this hotel a try and you will have a great holiday. At first (not due to the hotel but our tour operator) we weren't booked in, however the manager went out of her way to sort it and very soon we were unpacked and settling in. Ok we didn't have a pool view but we knew this at time of booking and who stays on the balcony when you can sit by the pool. The staff were very friendly, polite and hard working, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was spotless and the food of a very good standard. I have never seen such a choice of salads before and that includes 5* hotels. Its in a great location, close to everywhere, with entertainment on every night. A really good all round hotel which is a credit to its Manager and Staff, thank you Salou Princess.More
