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.
These suites are designed with a bright and airy feel. You’ll have a twin bedroom plus 1 sofa bed. There’s a lounge area for that extra bit of space. You’ll have Wi-Fi* access. Plus air-conditioning is available from May to October.
We went to this hotel in 2014 and were really impressed with it. When looking for a holiday this year we looked around at various hotels but we were drawn back to this one.
Check in was a little slow but you expect that with a lot of people checking in, the secure room was available for us to put our baggage into, we had about a two hour wait for our rooms, so made use of the outside snack bar.
Our room was on the second floor with a view of the theme park, the room was very pleasant with no complaints. The restaurant although busy had plenty of choice and you could always find something to eat. A lot of people seem to say the restaurant staff are grumpy but we have never experienced it and in fact found them to be lovely and very helpful.
The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the beach and shops or you can catch the road train which is 3 Euros per person each way.
The entertainment team (Pepito and Esteban) were fantastic and made you feel like long lost friends, there own evening show was great and I've not laughed like that for a while, we had a couple of shows that were not so good but these groups were being trailed, the Polynesian show was fab. It was also good to see Toni come across from the belverdere.
Would we go back? Yes we would. The Vil La Romana is fast becoming our families favourite.More

Brilliant holiday - just want to do it all over again
One of the best holidays our family has had. We went in October (out of school term - because it is far too expensive for us to go in the summertime) We would like to go back next year to the same hotel. The Villa Romana is a beautiful hotel and we cannot fault it. The food, entertainment, staff, facilities, rooms - everything was ideal. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. So much choice to eat in the buffet restaurant. The outdoor pool was frozen but this did not stop my kids from going in - it was October so we are not surprised it was cold. Plenty of things to do in Salou, our two young kids don't stop talking about their holiday in Salou. It was great going to Port Aventura , and the Nou Camp football stadium - (our son loved this trip). Our children were so happy on this holiday - we all just want to do it all over again - action replay. Great holiday. Defiantly going back More

Good hotel but too many children!
Went to Salou in october with another couple and away from the school holidays. Generally a good friendly hotel that has its good and bad points. I'l deal with the good points first. Good location. Roughly a ten minutes stroll to the beach with plenty of bars on the way. Rooms clean and cleaned every day with fresh towels if required. Decent bar prices and a pleasant seating area round the pool with the sun every afternoon. Great place to relax after a day out. Food was generally very good,especially as my partner needs a gluten free diet. Not may hotels provide this level of dietary care. Special thanks to Henri the chef who looked after us so well. Also this is the only hotel we have been to which sold gluten free beer. Brilliant! The staff do so well to cater for all tastes. Now the bad points. We are adults in our early sixties and are very young at heart but found that this hotel is overrun with badly behaved children. We went specifically out of term time but still found most of the evening entertainment geared up for kids. To get a seat to be able to watch the adult shows after 10pm we had to endure 2 hours of screaming unruly kids flying about and being entertained by the same entertainers every night! Even during and after the adult entertainment later in the evening the kids were still there. An adults disco would have been great after the show but there was nothing. Just kids. We decided to leave the hotel in the evening and go out. The beds and pillows in our room were awful. The beds were rock hard and the pillows were hard and too flat. We tried adding the spares but two pillows were too high. Didnt have a good nights sleep in 2 weeks. The dining room experience was not good and quite frankly a bit chaotic. Trying to get a set table was both tedious and slow. Some of the staff were slow at clearing and setting fresh tables and it was embarrassing hoverring round looking for a clean table. Some of the female waiting staff were also so miserable and rude and looked as though they just didn't want to be there! Bingo round the pool every afternoon was brain numbing with the same entertainment team going through the same identikit routine, singing the same song and saying the same tedious nonsense. It drove us nuts. It was like groundhog day! All in all though, a very good, friendly, clean hotel with good food but definitely not geared up for adults without children. A lesson learned. We will now be booking adult only hotels in the future.More

The hotel is ok but shows signs of fatigue, as did a lot of the staff in the last week of the season. Location is ok, didn't enjoy having to wait 2.5 hours to get access to our room, ie 130pm, and we were luckier than others who waited longer.
The wi if is temperamental and does not work in the bedrooms.
The room was spacious enough but again tired, the fold down couch was stained and appeared dirty, we would not have allowed anyone to sleep there had this been applicable.
The beds were ok and there are some British to channels.
The food was varied but the restaurant was too bright and clinical, school canteen style with no ambience.
The indoor pool was cold and you have to bring or buy a swim cap, the sauna was in disrepair with a missing bench board that had been patched up, an accident waiting to happen.
The staff in the restaurant seemed tired and at times some of the team were bordering on rude, it was the last week of the season, the was no free water in the evenings. All in all it was ok but I wouldn't go back, the missus would !More
Nice clean hotel. shocking food
Just back from a week here spent with my other half. Mainly for Halloween at portaventura! was only a 10min walk up the road which was awesome and same for the beach and all the wee shops. ideal location
The hotel looks great, even getting off the Bus after our flight it looked great from outside and inside looked even better in the main reception aera.
Room was nice modern and clean! Samsung LCD TV which impressively even had UK channels aswell as french and Spanish!
Pool aera was nice aswell with all the sunbeds straightened back out every night to make it neat and tidy, a nice touch!
The main downfall for both myself and my other half was the food! after seeing great reviews only afew months before our tip we planned to eat in every night and save money on eating out.
First night the food was ok, a decent selction off different all nice and warm etc.Breakfast wasn't to bad, decent selection which stayed the same throughout our trip. After that though it went down hill! was the same stuff every night and the selection got smaller and smaller to the point we ended up just having breaded chicken and waffer ham, giving up and eating out the last few nights adding alot of extra money spent on our trip spending Â£30-50 euros eatting out. on our very last night after spending alot eatting out we decided to give the hotel food another go and the selection was next to nothing. we had our drinks and left. went to the bar/cafe aera to get some snacks to be told everything was boxed away as they closed the following day.
That night all the sunbeds where getting stacked up which made it very noisy in our poolside room and for the next few hours it sounded as if there where alot of large furniture items being moved about in the floor above
Overall this is a lovely hotel, all staff where nice and helpful when needed and the gentleman who greeted us at breakfast every morning was great! alway as smile!
But for us at the time we went the food was a massive let down, guessing due to the end of season but still a massive let down and added a massive amount of spend to our holiday with eating out.More
