Villa Romana  

This hotel puts you in easy reach of PortAventura, as well as the shops, bars and restaurants of Salou.

Location-wise, this place is 15 minutes’ walk from PortAventura theme park, and slightly less to the beach, as well as Salou’s shops, bars and restaurants. Plus, outside the hotel there’s a stop for the land train and buses.

There’s a main pool and a small pool for very young guests next to it. The restaurant mixes Spanish favourites with things like pizza. And in the evenings, parrot shows and tribute shows top the entertainment list.

Food Great ! Pool Awful

I returned to villa romana after first coming in June 2014 and returned July 2015. But with the food still being the great standard the pool situation was terrible as it wasn't big enough for the hotel with there being not enough Sunbeds ASWELL with more Sunbeds there should have been more umbrellas around the pool. With having to wake up at 6:45am to be able to get to the (locked doors for 7:15 ) so I could wait for the doors to open at 8am when I had to run to get beds.More

nearly there but room for improvement

arrived here on 11th july around 6pm evening time so check in was 5 minutes then straight to our room.rooms are very basic although clean but no way a 4 star. our room was at the front of the hotel room 2131 which looked onto the hotel across the street which was ok no problem until their entertainment for the evening started my god the noise was like being at a concert though to be fair it was always over at around 11.30 12.00 midnight but even so there was no warning given by vil la romana about this in the hotel was quite good though there was never enough staff on so you had to queue quite a lot ie if you wanted breakfast orange you had to q if you wanted a fried egg you had to q if you wanted an omelette you had to q lol you get the picture.was the exact same at all meal times and it was something i feel let the hotel down bigtime.theme nights were no different from any other night regarding the food .the pool area and the pool itself are quite small considering the number of guests staying at the hotel and yes as others have stated trying to get a sunbed is a no no after morning the hotel didnt open the pool doors until 8am and when they did people actually ran to get sunbeds im not kidding lol.entertainment wasnt great around the pool it consisted of a 10 minute darts competition a 10 minute table tennis competition a ten minute water polo game then some water arobics for you guessed it 10 mins lol it was the exact same every day although one day they had a foam party which lasted wait for it ...about 10 minutes. just not enough entertainment for the kids .night time entertainment was a bit better to be honest with circus acts from china and stuff although anytime the animation team done the entertainment it was rubbish to be honest...if a few things were improved this could make a good hotel but i think it has some work to do firstMore

Good Hotel - Shame About the Sunbeds!

My wife and I enjoyed a Spring break at this hotel in May 2014, so we looked forward to returning in July this year, this time accompanied by our daughter and son-in-law. Once again we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, and we found the hotel to be as efficiently run and as friendly as on our previous visit. Its many positives easily outweigh the few niggles that we experienced. First the niggles. The mad "reserving" of sunbeds around the pool before dawn every day, so that nobody going out after breakfast had the slightest chance of finding a single available sunbed anywhere, was the worst I have ever experienced on holidays in Spain. There was a good number of sunbeds, so many in fact that there was little room to move between them, but the selfish behaviour of so many guests undermined the management's pleas not to put towels on sunbeds hours before they intended to use them. In exasperation, I suspect, the management finally resorted on the last two days of our stay to locking all the doors leading out to the pool area until 8.00am in an attempt to bring some sanity to bear. Our bedrooms overlooked the pool area which was most attractive during the day, but all the evening entertainment took place on the stage next to the pool - and it started late at night and continued at full volume until midnight. We simply gave up trying to get to sleep before midnight, when the amplifiers were finally switched off. One of our group is a vegetarian and she found a fairly restricted choice of menu at most meals. Once again, as with the sunbed situation, this problem is not unique to the Villa Romana, but it is one of the reasons the hotel probably falls just short of what we regard as a true Four Star standard. Now for the far more numerous good points. Although arriving on an early morning flight we were still checked-in swiftly and efficiently, and we were told that our two rooms were available for immediate occupancy. We hired a safe in one of our rooms that we then shared between us. Each room had a free fridge which proved a boon in keeping our bottles of water chilled. Both our rooms had pool views, with balconies, and were very comfortable. The beds were indeed firm, as other reviewers have noted, but we never failed to get a really good night's sleep - helped in no small way by the efficient and easily controlled air-conditioning. There was plenty of hanging space in the wardrobes, and a good supply of clothes hangers.The flat screen TV carried a number of English language channels, more than in any previous Spanish hotel in which we have stayed. The bathroom was spacious, with a combined bath and shower which always provided instant hot water even at the busiest times. Liquid soap and bath gel were provided via wall-mounted dispensers, and the towels were fluffy and regularly exchanged. The dining room was always busy but we never had to wait before being shown to our table, with a choice of the outside terrace or the air conditioned inside. At breakfast and evening dinner we found a reasonably wide choice of dishes (apart from vegetarian considerations, as mentioned earlier), and we managed to eat well every single day. In truth the daily menus were very acceptable rather than inspiring - again not quite up to what we understand by true Four Star standards. The wine order was taken at your table by waitresses and delivered promptly, and we found the house red and house rose to be exteremely palatable and reasonably priced. You settled your drinks bill as you left the dining room at the till next to the entrance. At lunchtimes we tended to use the snack bar in the pool area, taking our hot food and cold drinks to enjoy at the shady tables under the parasols. All the staff around the hotel were unfailingly courteous and cheerful. One of the strongest features of the hotel is its location, perfectly placed with only a 15 minute stroll down to the beautiful promenade and beach, or up to the exciting Port Avventura. Overall this is a well-run and really friendly hotel. We had a most comfortable and enjoyable stay, as indeed we did the previous year as well. Thank you for a splendid holiday!More

Arrived on Tuesday 14 July 2015 at lunchtime. Very impressed with the hotel, the pool area was excellent with plenty of parasols, entertainment and a bar which also served food. All the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. We booked a room overlooking the pool on the 5th floor. The rooms were very clean, mopped out, beds made and clean towels every day, even the cleaners were pleasant! Entertainment each night was varied, excellent for young kids. We have two teenagers 14 and 16, both really enjoyed themselves and had plenty to do. The location of the hotel is about 20 mins walk from the beach and main shopping centre and 15 mins walk from Portaventura Theme Park and Costa Caribe water park. We walked twice but also caught the little train from outside the hotel but be warned this cost 3 euros each (8 euros in the taxi) so bit pricey in my opinion for the short ride. If you are planning of visiting the waterparks or theme park I would recommend you book tickets on line. The queuing was a nightmare standing in the heat without much shelter. Once inside wasnt too bad although if you want to ride the big rides I would recommend you pay for fast passes, queues can be up to 2 hours for the larger rides! All in all we had a fantastic time, the hotel was lovely, food good and good location. Would definitely return.More

A real let down

Stayed here for 9 nights in early July and have been left very disappointed with our stay, especially as the reviews seem, in general, to be positive. We put a lot of thought into what hotel to stay in and feel let down by our choice. The good; *All common areas are beautiful (pool, bar, lobby etc) *All areas of the hotel are kept and cleaned to a high standard. Cleaning staff do a great job cleaning the rooms every day. *Wide variety of food at meal times. *Free fridge and wifi for the stay, which was a real bonus. The bad; *Requested and, thought, I had paid for a pool view room but was given a room on top floor at the back of the hotel with no view of anything. Mentioned this to reception staff but I was told that all the pool view rooms were occupied. *More security staff needed at night time, groups of very intimidating local/Spanish males (20-25 years old) gathered just outside the hotel, who were under the influence of drugs and or alcohol. We had a fear that there was going to be physical altercations on a couple of occasions. *The biggest complaint we had on our stay which really ruined our holiday was a trip we booked to Barcelona. We booked the excursion with a rep that was assigned to us because we had booked through the internet. With excitement we waited outside the hotel for our bus. Each bus that stopped we produced our ticket and each told us that their bus was not the one intended for us. We waited approx. 1 hour after the pick up time outside the hotel before returning inside to ring the rep. On the phone the rep was rude and abrupt and basically called us liars insisting that we hadn't bothered to even show up for the bus and just wanted our money back. No refund was given or offered and it was basically our though luck, we were out of pocket of over 100 euro. This was our second last day so I mentioned it to hotel staff on check out but they did not want to know as we were departing they did not care. Now I know this is not the hotels fault but I thought it was worth posting here to show what the rep working in their hotel had done.More
