"My family and i just returned from a 10 day stay at the Pineda Park Hotel. The Hotel is great, on arrival they made us feel very welcome and was quick getting our room number, key etc. The room was very very spacious for 2 adults, 2 teenagers and a 4 year old child, we had 2 bedrooms with a pull out bed for the young one. There was 2 bathrooms, a very big one and a small one. The Balcony was huge and we had a nice view of the pool( would recommend to ask for nice view*). The pool gates open at 9 so you have to get up quick to save sunbeds!There is a supermarket just around the corner with a nice bakery, which is very cheap! Make sure to go to portaventura theme park it is brillient the two 15 year olds loved it, we went to the nighttime one as it was very very hot during the day and the nightly one is alot cheaper. We would recommend the Aquapolis Waterpark instead of the Portaventura one, as it is just around the corner and you can go back for 6 euro extra. The entertainment in the hotel was poor except one night was good craic.If you have young children there is a hotel up the road with very good children entertainment during the day and night (Water Polo, Kiddie Discos etc) The drinks in Pineda Park were lovely and cheap, the food during the day was very nice but one waitress (spanish) couldnt undrestand us and would often bring the wrong food! Good tip bring towels for pool and beach or buy them in a shop up the road where we got 3 towels for 20 euro, as you will be fined 100 euro if you use them at the pool!Beach is 3 minutes up the road which is fantastic. This hotel is definality worth the money and we will be returning next year. 10/10 "

what can I say
"Hi well we just got back on monday 20th july and what can I say it was just the same as last year but better. The only thing was that the first week weather not very good but it didnt keep us in. We had already our room nimber as we e-mailed the hotel before hand and aasked if we could get a specific room and we got it. Everything and everyone was just the same great people to help you at the reception they were always there for you any time of the day or night. The Admiral bar well what can i say. Gary, Roz who worked in the day time fantastic people and would do anything for you at a drop of the hat. Derek, Mark,Stefan,Joe i cant remember ladys name(sorry) fantastic. The food was great and there were specials on the menu every night. The Admiral has the best chefs in La Pineda. We did different things this year we went to Tarragona it was marvelous it has a great big shopping centre.Well thats all folks all i can say is what a fantastic holiday and we are hoping to go back next year fingers crossed we manage it, if we dont it will be the year after. adios amegios."

Last minute holiday
"My husband and I have just returned from a week at the Pineda Park Apartments - La Pineda. The apts are bright and spacious and have everything you need in the kitchen for a self catering holiday - didnt have to hire anything. The rooms were clean on arrival - fresh towels every 2 days, bathroom etc was cleaned once only during the week. You are expected to clear away your own rubbish. We thought the 30 euro for the safe was expensive - there was no deposit returned. The cost of the ice-cream in the adjoining cafeteria is very expensive, between 2-3 euro - nightmare for families with small children! Overall it was a good complex with nice pool area, a games room, pool tables etc so plenty to keep you occupied if required. Would recommend these apartments to anyone, they are situated at the far end of the resort, which is all pretty flat and easy to walk around. The beach is excellent. Salou is only 10 mins away by bus if you want somewhere livlier."

"Went on a late booking with my husband,never been to Salou was well pleased with la Pineda everything i read in other peoples comments were true these apartments are the best i have ever been too in any holiday,i was more than pleased when i walked through the door when i got there.Two bathroom/shower rooms comes in handy.Very friendly and helpful Rep does a very good job not in your face but there for you.Beautiful beaches local transport on your door step very cheap for fares very regular went to a few places.You must visit Tarragonna local bus takes you there for about euro 50 takes about 15mins beautiful great day out.Visited Barcelona amazing city very very busy not somewere to take the children.Lots of places to go near han d.If you fancy a CHIPPIE you must to a bus in to Salou and go to the CHIPPIE thats what it is called you can have a fish tea sitting in for 7 euros that includes bread and butter also any drink even a beer loved it portions very good but my husband could not resist the apple pie and custard afterwards.I am booking up for next year and will be taking my two daughters and there partners and my grandson cant wait.Only next time i will be requesting a pool view as our apartment was at the other side and we never got any sun,not really a complaint."

"These appartments more than exceeded all our expectations. The rooms are very spacious, and quite comfortable for holiday homes. Towels are changed every 3 days and a cleaner comes in every other 3 days ( I think that's how it worked, they were clean anyway!) We had booked 2 appartments as we wanted plenty of space and privacy for our family of 3 and our 2 grandparents, however in retrospect the 1 appartment would have done us fine. The appartment has 2 seperate bedrooms (main 1 en-suite) and a seperate shower/ toliet room, a large lounge area with ajoining dinning room, and a seperate (well equiped kitchen- full cooker, micro, large fridge/ freezer), and of course a large balcony. The pool and pool area were well maintained and there were ample beds so no rushing down at 6.30am to bag a bed! The Admiral Bar/ Restaurant had an extensive menu, and we can honestly say we had nearly everything on it (the diets back on now!) and never had a single complaint. The staff were all very friendly and very accomodating in putting on Sky channel of choice for sporting events etc. A different act on every night, although only for 7 days, then repeated however we did find ourselves watching some again 'cause they were good. Only improvement I would suggest is maybe something on a bit earlier for younger kids- a mini disco or something?! Will definately try and book this place next year. "

"Just home from these apartments. Stayed with my husband and 3 boys aged 8, 6 and 2. They were fantastic. Very spacious and very clean. Had everything you need for self catering holiday, very well equipped kitchen. The Admiral bar of the hotel is owned by british people and the food is very good and great value for money. Camy the waitress was lovely, very friendly and always had a smile. All the staff spoke excellant english and if anythings not right in your room it is fixed very quickly. We had a broken patio chair which we reported just after we arrived and it was replace within a few hours. Would defo reccommend these apartments to anyone. Only downside was the amount of lilos, dingneys and rings in the pool sometimes, pool not big enough to accomodate all of these but still would defo go back. We had a late departure time and had to be out of our room for 10am, but the changing facilities were great, all you need to freshen up. Hope to return very soon."

"Just back from Pineda Park Apartments they were excellent the best we have ever stayed in. Very spacious bedrooms with lots of storage space. en-suite bathroom was a bonus as we had four children. The rooms were spotless towels and sheets changed every other day. The pool was cleaned every night and the pool area was kept very clean. The Admiral Bar serves excellent food and prices are reasonable. The beach is about 5 minutes away along with supermarket. The only down side of these apartments was that the shows were the same each week. Would certainly go back to these apartments.If you have children there is a games room for them to enjoy and a small park round the back of the apartments."
