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 flamenco dancing top the entertainment list.

Awesomeness - a Lee family hotel for the future.

Having stayed in Cambrils and La Pineda previously we decided to choose a Salou hotel for a change. I think we've found possibly the best, and won't be trying the rest, on our return in a year or two. Hotel, location, staff, cleanliness, food, animacion team, other guests, all superb. Only slight grumble is the pillows, odd and uncomfortable, but that's being picky. Travelled with my wife and two daughters (8 & 3 years old) we all really, really loved our 2 weeks here. See you sooner rather than later we hope Romana, cheers from Mark (Kev), Claire, Amelia and Hannah.More


not a four-star hotel

We have just returned from a week at this hotel. It looked so lovely online. we travelled as a family of two adults and three late teens in late august. Rooms: very nice, good size, well-appointed bathrooms, balcony overlooking pool, football pitch or front ( the latter is best as is quieter and you get an excellent view of the nightly fireworks at port Aventura nearby) There is a hairdryer and an airing rack, but no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. there is a tv ( pot luck whether you get any English-speaking channels... next door did but we didn't) there is a fridge, but the electricity only works when your room card is in the slot, so no fridge when you're out ( problem if you need to store medication?) The safe costs about £20 for the week. Chambermaids make beds and change towels daily including sundays. No room service. Facilities at hotel: there is a gym, an indoor and an outdoor pool. However all of these have restricted opening times ( 10am til 7pm) so not good if, like us, you like a pre-breakfast dip or to head for the pool after a day's sightseeing. Furthermore, the pool tends to be taken over from about 4pm by 'activities' such as aquagym and waterpolo. The latter seemed to involve about 40 or so lads hanging round the pool, doing hip-thrusting movements and shouting obscenities before jumping in en masse. There is a bar outside and another inside plus a football bar. all drinks to be paid for in cash ( no putting things 'on tab') This was really annoying as it meant we were constantly heading for the bank machine and carrying cash to the pool. The evening entertainment was very mixed. The tribute bands tended to be better than the 'games' which were full of innuendo and frankly quite embarrassing. eg passing the phallic-shaped balloon. guys having to act seductive to women or climbing on them. All very drink-fuelled of course, but if lewd behaviour and drinking binges are not your thing, this is not the hotel for you. We were really quite sorry for those groups with children..... The Food: Buffet style, and good variety. again cash payment at the end of the meal for any drinks ordered ( wine list very limited... if you expect a 4-star wine list, you will be disappointed) Salads and fruit excellent and varied, but pretty much anything they had had a go at cooking was pretty awful.... you expect oil-based cuisine because this is Spain, but we have travelled enough to know the difference between oil and grease, and this was swimming in grease. Apart from a couple of 'themed' menus ( one Spanish and one Italian) which seemed frankly to be an excuse for more pasta, the food was pretty much the same each night. Parents of small children be aware the fish is not filleted. Thursday night's dish of the day seemed to be chicken dippers: enough said..... Potential as a touring base: we hired a car, but the railway station for port Aventura is very near so to visit coastal places you wouldn't need one. Barcelona is about an hour and a half by train, and Valencia a bit further. We had been to Barcelona before, so one day was plenty: Salou is really not a good place to go back and forth there , as its too far. We loved Montserrat, best approached by cable car for the view/experience ( and the free parking ) Overall impression: This hotel had so much potential, but it is not in our view good for families with anyone under mid-teens, unless you avoid the entertainment, also poor for anyone needing a touring base( as you cant use the pool etc). It has the feeling of a hotel for youngsters having a good time away. There are plenty of better restaurants, many serving local food, nearby, including the seafront and an excellent seafood restaurant at La Pineda ( 5 mins by car) so put up with the hotel breakfast and dine elsewhere after. This hotel is sooooo noisy. We won't be back.More

Lovely hotel and staff

We have just got back from a family holiday to the romana and what can I say ,,,we stayed for 10 nights it is a lovely hotel the bedroom as nice and clean and quite roomy. We went as a large group and we had rooms very close together which was a bonus , the food was good and the theme night was great especially when all the ladies got a red rose and the children got candy floss and ballon animals. I highly recommend talking to David the rep if you need anything he told us about house of illusion and that was fantastic well worth the money never laughed so much. We also booked an experience with the dolphins which was mind blowing I loved every min of it anyway back to the hotel staff very friendly and helpful I think the price of a safe for your stay was expensive especially coz you don't get any of it back ,, 36 .50 euros. We spent a couple of days round the pool and like the other comments we had to go down early to get sunbeds but it wasn't such a big problem coz you could always find somewhere. Myself personally didn't think much to the entertainment on the night neither did the other members of my party but that didn't effect the holiday at all. You have a large choice of food at breakfast as well as tea time. I would erm end this hotel and I would return and I would also tell anyone to use the land trains to help you around salou seafront at a cost of 2 euros well worth it xMore

Second visit to hotel and not disappointed

This was our second visit to this hotel and the standards hadn't dropped at all the the last two years. Reception staff very help full and polite as were all the staff in the dining room and kitchen. We decided not to use the pool on this stay as there were a lot of large families and we were unable to get a sunbed but the beach is only a 5-10 minute walk away. The food was amazing always plenty if choice and freshly cooked options were always available. Would definitely return maybe in a few years, this hotel is very special to us so much so we got engaged on the first night (21st June) just the two of us on the balcony. Oh and for returning guests we arrived back to our room on the second evening after dinner to fruit kebabs, chocolates and olive oil for our loyalty which is a lovely touch :)More


Excellent family hotel

My wife and I took our two grandaughters 12 and 13 for a week. Hotel was excellent with great food ( kids loved the fresh panakes and omellettes). Rooms were very clean. Animation team worked very hard to entertain all the kids both around the very ample pool and in the evening. Plenty of sunbeds available and really liked the fact that the pool was very well proportioned for those who like a paddle to those who like to swim.The hotel is very well situated to get to Portaventura theme park, which is a fabulous experience for all ages (love the stampeda). It is also a 5 min walk to the excellent clean sandy beach.Nightlife is a bit quieter than Benidorm but is very family orientated with plenty of bars offering a varied pallate of entertainment from quizzes, game shows, karaoke to the odd tribute act and even parrot and snake shows. All in all Salou offers great family value which my wife and myself have enjoyed three times now over the years.More
