    Good

    My wife and I were forced to find a hotel at the last minute due to the volcanic ash cloud cancelling our flight back to the UK. The Hotel California Palace was a pretty pleasant place all in all, but it was extremely quiet, we almost had the hotel to ourselves so it was quite devoid of atmosphere at times ! However, the buffet-style breakfast is simply brilliant !! - a mix of european and spanish elements. And the free-wifi on the grd flr was also extremely handy. The staff were also all extremely friendly and always seemed happy to help.

    I only had two issues with our stay: 1) The beds - extremely uncomfortable! The matresses are solid and I would imagine that any more than a few nights stay and your body would begin to feel it. 2) The much-advertised free-wifi in the rooms didn't work in ours.

    Very good

    Clean, big rooms. breakfast is quite varied, especially given the low price (5EUR).

    Booked.net description says wifi is free and available in the rooms - it was not free (1 euro/h) and only available in the lobby. coffee at the breakfast was terrible.

    Superb

    + overall price and price/quality value are perfect. I'd recommend to book it in advance, it can be cheaper that 3* hotels. + food was excellent! A few options of meat and fish every evening + prices in the restaurant are quite affordable (e.g. glass of home wine 2.5 euro, 0.5 Sangria - 6 euro) + there is ability to order early breakfast/lunch box e.g. in case of leaving in early morning for tours +/- location: from one side it is great - close to supermarket, rail way station, there is a bus station from which you can go Tarragona, Reus and excursions from BusPlana from other side it is a bit far from the beach (15-20 min) and the main bus station (also close to the beach and McDonalds) I think I'd stay here again in case of next visit to Salou.

    - we were strongly asked to leave at 10 am, but on the Booked.net the check-out time is from 10 to 12. - staff was not very helpful. e.g. when we asked for internet, they said it cost 4 eur per hour. However, on Booked.net it is notes that it should be free. Later we found out that we need to say, that we booked hotel via Booked.net and only for guest from Booked.net it is free. - There were lack of entertainment/activities at night (e.g. shows) in comparison with nearest hotel.

    Aangenaam hotel ; goed gelegen als je de trein wil nemen naar andere steden ; rustig (goede nachtrust) ; dicht bij het strand ook

    Sommige avonden te veel gezang en te luid

    Fabulous

    Het eten was gevarieerd.De kamers waren netjes en schoon en balkons waren ruim voor een hotel.

    Dat veel van het personeel weing of geen spaans spreekt. Dat de consumpties aan de bar en het zwembad erg duur zijn en dat de wifi niet in het gehele hotel werkt maar alleen in de hal.De animatie onaantrekkelijk was.

    Mooi hotel in het mooie rustige deel van Salou. Vriendelijk personeel en lekker buffet. Tien minuten lopen naar het strand. Het treinstation naar Barcelona is aan het einde van de straat. Goede busverbinding met vliegveld en Reus (aanrader).

    Very good

    La climatisation bien que d'un niveau sonore trop élevé.

    La nourriture, bien que correcte, reste moyenne sans recherche particulière sur les plats préparés. Aucun plat typique espagnol... Les desserts sont sans saveurs et quelconques. Mention bien pour le petit déjeuné, bien que le jus d'orange soit trop sucré.

    ничего не понравилось.

    отель очень простой,то,что на фото не соответствует действительности.жили на 2 этаже,окна выходят на дорогу,где всю ночь шум невероятный.стены в номерах без кирпичей,просто перегородки гипсокартона,жуткая аккустика.все,что творится в соседнем номере слышно.очень шумно,в 7.30 утра уборщицы начинают судорожно орать и переговариваться друг с другом.проблема с полотенцами,грязные забирают,чистые не приносят! каждый день просили принести полотенца. если честно,то не кому не рекомендую ехать в этот отель-гостиница!
