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.

Nice but warm room

Been coming to Vila romana for a few years. They have been recently taken over by a new group of hotels. This may I noticed it was particularly warm and uncomfortable in the room. The air can wasn't working. When raising with hotel, they said that now they don't switch on air con until June . It might have been ok temperature fr the Spanish, but the room was way too warm. The weather was warm, so no need to keep the air on ff, except to save money at the expense of guests' comfort. Otherwise food againfood, service good. Drinks are creeping up in price. Not outrageously expensive, but more expensive than local bars.More

Not exactly a 4 star hotel

arrived early and had to wait till 1pm for a room, pillows are rock hard and towels were grey and threadbare. Food was ok but some nights it was vile and the waiting staff were so miserable. Trying to get a table a breakfast was a nightmare. some nights the meat wasn't cooked properly and had to queue for ages as only 2 staff cooking 4 or 5 different foods location was very good was only 10 mins walk to the seafront. Drinks were average price however shorts with a mixer were 7 euro !More

Second visit

Returned for our second visit to the Vil-a-Romana in October. Pleased to say the hotel still offers excellent value for money. The food is good with plenty of choice,especially if you like seafood. The only things we were not happy about was the state of towels in the room which were far to small and almost threadbare and the entertainment. The animacion team worked very hard but we not happy about the show they put on which was very suggestive and not suitable for family audiences. If you go to Barcelona beware the pizza shop on the Rambles. You order a small beer which is at least a pint, if you complain he bring out a massive glass which he claims is normal. Two small slices of pizza and two small beers 33 euros!More

Good value for money

We stayed here from 10th Oct-17th Oct. We booked about a week before the date of flight as it was just such a good price for 2 people going half board,couldn't really pass it up! Having said that,we knew when we booked that it wouldn't be completely up our street as we prefer smaller resorts and hotels. Flight there was smooth and easy. We were expecting to wait for our hotel room as we got to the hotel around 10AM and other reviewers had said about a wait for the rooms but we got the keys straight away and went up to the room. Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the front (I think) didn't get any sun and the view wasn't great,just some trees and a wooden bridge of some sort which we wearn't too happy with. However,we soon saw that this area was where the hotel cats hang out and it was delightful to watch them,they're adorable. The room itself was spacious and had everything that we would need. The fridge wasn't that powerful but it was better than none. Not that we go on holiday just to watch TV,but its nice to have it on in the background whilst getting ready to go out etc. so we were disappointed that it only had German speaking channels. However,after asking at Reception,they sent someone up to sort it out for us. Maids did a great job and always left clean towels. The hotel had free wi-fi which was great but the fact that you didn't have to keep signing in and the signal was really strong was a bonus!! Where our room was based was SO quiet as well so no trouble sleeping. The food was really good,such a lot of choice and I can be a fussy eater but I managed to find a lot every time! Although deserts were quite repetitive. Majority of dining room staff were miserable. Salou itself is a big resort,which we are not used to staying in. In the first few days,it felt like a chore to walk to the main strip but after that,it does become less of an effort. So many shops and lots of eateries too. The beach was nice but a lot quieter further down which is what we preferred. There is a train that takes you round Salou and is also a longer but more chilled out way to get to and from the hotel if you can't be bothered to do the 15-20 min walk. There is a top just outside the hotel. Whilst staying there,we took a bus to Cambrills which was easy enough. Cambrills is gorgeous and much more our cup of tea so would of been nice to stay there a bit longer. Deffo recommend checking it out. We also did 2 excursions. One booked with the local excursionists Bus Plana where we went to Barcelona and one with Thomson to Tarragona. If you are worried about going with the locals,please don't be!!! Much cheaper and SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE THOMSON TRIP. Thomson trip to Tarragona was quite frankly,a rip off. Felt like a school trip,we practically got told off in front of everyone for apparently being around 2 minutes late (although we were not late at all) made us feel embarrassed and didn't set us off in the best mood.So if you're thinking of doing excursions,Bus Plana is the way to go. Having said this,Tarragona is beautiful and is worth a visit too. I cannot comment on the evening entertainment at this hotel as we didn't watch it once,It's not really our thing. Also we didn't have a pool day either as we prefer to explore and go shopping. This is a big hotel. Don't get me wrong,this hotel is great if that's the kind of thing you look for,we had a great time. Ideal for families,just not for me (21) and my mum :)More

would go to again

Wasn't sure what to expect from the hotel especially as it was near the end of season, but it was lovely, staff are friendly and helpful, food is good with plenty of choice and they will cook you stir fries etc to your taste nothing is to much trouble, kids club was great as were the entertainment team. The evening entertainment was good overall with an evening disco for kids which did get a bit repetitive after a few nights of the same music. We had an early flight so knew the rooms would not be ready but got keys at 1pm, there was a secure room to keep your cases in and you could use all the facilities. We had adjoining rooms which were a decent size and very clean overall we had no issues, the only thing I would say is that if you have a room near the basketball/football area it does get a bit annoying. The outdoor pool was very clean but cold as not heated in October also had a lifeguard on duty at all times, the indoor pool was smaller than I expected but again clean with sunbeds and warm. We have said that we would go to this hotel again the first time we have said that about a place.More
