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 flamenco dancing top the entertainment list.

Not too bad.......! But not a 4*......!
This was pretty much what I expected from a family resort but I would grade this as a 3* hotel. Arrived on an early flight but couldn't get into room until after 1.30pm (however check-out is by 10.00am). Rooms are very basic, but clean. Bed was not the most comfortable but again, pretty much expected that! Walls very thin - could hear next door and room above, especially when they got in after 01.00am....! There is free wifi throughout the hotel. Food is of a good standard, plenty of variety and is constantly being replenished. Good selection for kids too. Animacion team were great, lots for the kids to do and the team had bags of energy! Pool is pretty small for the size of the hotel, and beware, all sunbeds are gone by about 9.00am so you need to get down and reserve with a towel if you want to spend the day there.....(I hate doing that but when in Rome....). The best part for me was the 45 minute massage for just 40Euros - one of the best massages I have ever had! The beach is about a 5 minute walk away, via plenty of shops and restaurants. Salou is a nice resort, perfect for families with children. Plus, the hotel is a short transfer from the airport which is a bonus. Overall we had a great stay but would probably try a different hotel if we went back.More

Great first family holiday hotel, will be returning.
We chose The Vil-la Romana because it was fairly central to both the beach and the waterpark. When we arrived after a reasonable bus journey from Reus airport, we were greeted by the rep for the hotel and went straight for the reception. Unfortunately, our room was not ready, so we had to find somewhere to grab a coffee till it was ready for us, but it wasn't that long a wait. When we got to our room, the view wasn't great, but we weren't here for the hotel view, we were here for a holiday. The room was clean, tidy, and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was also clean with plenty of towels. Overall, the room met our expectations. Two things I would note for future reference, are that the door and electricity in the rooms are controlled but the same card, which goes in a slot just inside the door. When the card is removed, the electricity goes off, this includes to the fridge and all sockets, so if you leave anything plugged in to charge when you leave the room, it isn't going to, also the fridge temperature will fluctuate. And secondly, there is no kettle or tea or coffee provision in the room. so we will be talking a travel kettle next time (yes, I said next time). After getting changed, we headed down to the pool, which because we arrived in the afternoon, was busy. We managed to get a couple of sun loungers and our daughter headed straight in to the pool. The pool is large, with two shallower areas, great for kids with inflatable toys and adults who want to swim. You will have to go down early to grab loungers though as they are set out late a night, and towels appear very early on. Hint - the hotel side of the pool got more sun while we were there. Next I went to the pool bar to get some food, and as a whole across the week, I found that certain members of the bar staff could be a bit dour and reluctant to comprehend what I was asking for, funnily enough though, the ladies got great service........just saying, that's all. This was the only one of two niggles, one time I went to the bar, and asked for something simple, the barman would come back with ether the wrong item (I asked for a Ciapiranha cocktail and got a bottle of Corona) or have to ask me again (and again), even though I spoke slowly and pointed at the menu, as I learned quickly, this was their ilk. The other niggle is the wifi, it's free, great, but you have to log in every two minutes, we didn't go specifically for that, but we used it to check up on things at home and found the endless logging in a bit of a pain. Next the food. The food as whole is excellent, our first meal was dinner, there is a dress code of long sleeves and trousers for men, but it's not really enforced, long shorts and a T shirt are fine. There is LOADS of food, the choice is great, fish, lamb, pork, kids choices, veg and salads, there was three theme nights, Spanish, fish and Italian, which are really fun with the same standard of great food. The dessert tables are a dieters nightmare, and the selection of fresh fruit is also good. There's something for everyone, and if you go hungry, then sorry, you're a fussy eater. The breakfast is just as well provisioned, one thing though, don't go straight for the fruit juice out of the machine, the freshly squeezed juice over by the pancake station is cool and refreshing. The selections for breakfast are just as big, continental, fried, pastries, fruit, omelettes, pancakes (much to my wife's delight), cheeses. As far as food goes, you couldn't really ask for more. The kitchen staff must work monster shifts, they are there in the morning and still there at night and as a chef myself, I really don't know how they do it. The animacio crew who provide the entertainment are a special kind of mental. The energy they put in their jobs is unreal. The do various activities round the pool during the day, then on an evening, they do the kids mini disco and games. they always have a smile for the guests and kids and always do their best to get guests involved in the activities. You couldn't ask for better. The are very chatty, friendly and made our evenings (crazy Gangnam style dancing). In the evening, I would suggest going to the pub attached to the hotel at the far end of the main bar before the entertainment starts, it's air conditioned, has tv's and pool tables, and probably the best barman in the hotel. The situation of the hotel is ten minutes gentle walk from the beach and around ten minutes walk down hill from the PortaVentura theme park and water park, so if you stay here, you are fairly central from everything, with plenty of supermarkets quite close to the hotel for snacks etc. Lastly, I must mention David the rep for the hotel. He did the welcome talk on our first morning and was great. He advised on things to see and places to go, was approachable and friendly, and did his best to smooth out any issues where able. He was around quite a lot and was always easy to find. Also ask him where the closet supermarket is, it's literally just round the corner, but you wouldn't know. In conclusion, we had decided by our third day there that we would be returning. The Vil-La Romana, has everything you could need and more. There's nothing more I can say to recommend this hotel, we had a great first family hotel an hope to return next year. Many thanks to all the staff (even the bar staff).More

Me, my mum, brother, two cousains and aunt went to vilaromana last year and loved it.

Stayed for 10 days early July. Check in was slow and frustrating. Room was clean and comfortable. Entertainment team were brilliant. Food was good and wide choice again staff in restaurant were excellent. Pool area was busy but clean and able to get sun beds. Bar was slow but friendly staff and a little expensive. Salou itself is a nice resort with good bars and good nightlife. This hotel is not for a romantic break but ideal for a family holiday. More
