Relaxing

The hotel was a great better than we were expecting. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. The nightlife was more for the younger people but we enjoyed ourselves. The food in the hotel was good though it could have been a little warmer. There was a fair variety and was well cooked.

The best thing about my stay was...

The hotel.

all inclusive is a joke

stayed here for 13 days all inclusive as part of a group with 6 adults 6 children....upon arrival reception staff were polite and helpful...the morning after check in we went down to have breakfast to find the breakfast was cold, we presumed this was because it was 9.30 and breakfast had been opened since 8am but every day we went it was cold regardless of time, so we ended up skipping breakfast and having the snacks that opened at 11am. when we went to the kids club with the kids it was full of luggage from people waiting to check out...when the clud did run it lasted 30 mins ...the daytime activities consisted of 15 mins water aerobics on 1 or 2 days that was it really the night time entertainment was rediculious it did not start till 10pm and was uncaptivating everybody seemed bored including the entertainers....the all inclusive states snacks 11am-1 pm, 3pm-7pm, 9pm-11pm....out of the 13 days we stayed here they ran out of bread for sandwiches then cheese, the following day they had no buns for burgers and hot dogs, they ran out of chips over the weekend we were told there were no deliveries but they did not get chips back till the Tuesday...they also ran out of 7-up another day ....the all inclusive icecreams were non existant in snack bar my daughter wud go up and ask for one at 11am and get one my son would go up immediately after her to be told they were all gone....when the kids wud go up for drinks the bar staff would tut and say drink, drink, drink...giving out ....you had to order snacks from the bar and would have to wait a long time to get your food....the same with drinks really ....one day two of the bar staff had a verbal argument infront of me and my kids....the food in the restaurant is ok you wouldn't starve but is repetitive with lunch and dinner being practacly the same....when I booked these rooms I asked for a cot on arrival as I was travelling with a 10mth old....there was no cot provided so I enquired at reception and was told it would cost 55 euro to hire a cot from them and a 20 euro deposit.....I also asked for a kettle so I could make bottles and was told it would be 20 euro rental and 10 deposit ...it is also 10 euro deposit for t.v remote and the local taxes average 7-10 euro per room...all payable on arrival....the rooms were lovely and kept very clean everyday...the cleaning staff and Jamie who works behind the bar are the only descent staff this place have...I don't usually complain about all inclusive as im aware you cant please everybody and they try to to cover all tastes but here was a joke they would just tell you sorry don't have it like you should just be greatfull with what you have when in actual fact you have paid in advance for this service to be told they don't have what you want....the staff are rude and the entertainment was a big disappointment which ment we ate out a good few nights and had to go out to find entertainment for the kids who were so bored from the lack of day time entertainment ....the pool does not allow inflateables but its not signed posted anywhere so like us and many more who spent 10 euro plus per inflateable they were left on the balcony ....the location was good but not suitable for families as the entertainment is a joke what they post up on the entertainment bored in the morning could be changed by evening to family games which consisted of a girl trowing water balloons at 10pm ....the lifts are a night mare my daughter got stuck in it as the min you get out the door slams and the lift takes off luckly she was old enough to press her level number again but another woman who was trvelling with a 1-2 yr old got out of the lit with bags and the child was following when the door slammed and the lift took off the child was screaming the mother did not know what to do she had to run the stairs to see where the lift would stop while I waited on the ground floor to see would the lift come back down ....she found her child on the 3rd floor screaming and inconsolable...there is no button to open the lift from inside\outside it really is a nightmare....I would not recommend this for families at all

Very clean, low entertainment

I stayed with 3 children and parents, I had a single parent room. Rooms was cleaned every day. Food was good. Restaurant manager was nice, helpful. The pool area was clean with many loungers,these dont recline at all. Just lie down flat. Dont rely on wifi this is poor. The hotel is set on a hill, not recommended for wheelchairs and prams. Short cut to local shops, come out the hotel turn right go down the hill towards kiss nightclub, this saves alot of walking No entertainment, entertainment at the eve starts at 10pm. If traveling with children ask for a pool view room. Poolside cocktail bar does not open. The bar staff are rude, drinks are all served in paper cups, even coffee The entertainment girl,rebecca does her best. But no child club. The pool kept us entertained The beach, nice. Sea dirty. Lots of seaweed

Don't Believe What You Read Make Your Mind Up

After reading several of the reviews we were a little unsure of what to expect. Shouldn't have been worried at all really, friendly staff, very clean throughout. Rooms cleaned daily. The only down fall was the choice of food throughout the week and it was very repetitive . Brillant location very close to town and beach.

October 2014

This was the second time this year that we have stayed at the Santa Monica Playa. The first was in May when the hotel was very busy. This time it was quiet, but so was Salou. We were only there for four nights but the weather was wonderful for the time of year. Noisy bar across the road that is open until 3am so had the ear plugs in for the recent trip. We were half board and found the food to be acceptable considering there were different nationalities staying. We would definitely consider returning to this hotel.

Great food. Very clean, friendly staff, pleasant pool area. On a steep incline, very noisy pubs/clubs opposite the pool some nights. There is a longer route to hotel which is less steep, staff should advise customers

The best thing about my stay was...

I thought the range and quality of the food for breakfast and dinner was fabulous
10/10 Amazing

10 September 2011

overall great

very little to fault! pool area nice and clean, good breakfast and bedrooms cleaned daily, with new sheets and towels! also there was plenty of hot water for baths and showers, which i have found can often be a problem! our balcony had a lovely view overlooking the pool area. My only fault is the music at night from the hotel entertainment. It plays till 12am, even though the show finishes at 11pm. It was fine most nights, because we were out ourselves, but hard to sleep if you want an early night! overall 2thumbs up!

The best thing about my stay was...

great location and very central to the beach!

look for somewhere nicer, not worth the money!!!!!!

Would not stay here again, even if I got it for free. Have travelled the world and have stayed in dumps but never have a stayed somewhere so badly run, and where most staff are very rude and unhelpful. Our stay began with a room where balcony door did not lock, we were told could not be fixed until the following day, we asked to be moved as we would not have felt safe during the night, it was from here a lot of our problems began as the girl in reception was not happy and caused a big fuss about the whole thing. We were at the end of a corridor that did not have any light. One day we got no towels, the next day we got no toilet paper. We asked for directions another day and we were given completely incorrect instructions. Breakfast was fine but I was glad I wasn't staying a second wk as it was the same every day except for the eggs. I'd look for A different hotel in Salou, u'll get nicer. I definitely won't be returning to this hotel ever again.

The best thing about my stay was...

pancakes for breakfast-only served twice during the wk!
