This is our last day of our holiday and seeing as it's raining today I thought I would write my review today .

We booked a sea view suite and was a little disappointed as we was not aware that all the rooms have not been updated our room did not match the photo on the website however the room is large , clean and bed very comfortable just needs updating . Balcony is large with comfy ratton chairs and the sea front is about 100 meters away .

Don't agree with some of the views regarding the reception staff I found them very friendly , I do not think they are dressed professionally for a hotel never seen front of house in jeans before . This hotel is definitely where the British are a minority .

We stayed bed and breakfast , we found breakfast time to be chaotic and just to busy for us choice not to bad but really spread out felt more like a canteen than a restaurant.

Would we stay again my answer would be no but that's because we are unlikely to return to Salou , would I recommend yes I would we didn't have a bad experience just some areas could be improved on.

The resort is massive and loads to do can highly recommend The Roadhouse for steaks and burgers but you will need to book , the Taj Mahal for a curry , olivers and the dubliner for great English food

The hotel itself was good, during my trip I never experienced the buffet they had due to us eating out every night. However in the morning the selection was great although extremely fattening as expected. Filled with crepes and donuts with a small amount of fruit. Apart from this the rooms were cleaned amazingly once a day and you always saw staff cleaning at least something. The hotel experience was great. But what Is better is where it is placed you are directly in front of the beach, right next to the marina and if you go left out of the hotel you are right next to all of the restaurants. To add, the atmosphere even at night is amazing. The nearby basketball court is amazing at night with multiple cultures joined in the game. Amazing holiday would definatley reccomended. The only reason I gave a 4 star not 5 is that the wifi in the hotel rarely works unless you stay up until at least 2 am.

We found the hotel to be clean and child friendly. The staff are helpful and service at the pool-side bar is quick. The hotel's policy of not allowing guests to reserve sun-beds is rigorously applied. As a consequence there are always sun beds available irrespective of the time you go to the pool. Breakfast is well organised and there is an extensive choice of food. Salou is a lovely, family friendly resort and the Blaumar a great place to stay.

Family-oriented hotel with good board and friendly service. The best location (at least for us) - 100 m from the beach and walking distance from city center (shopping & restaurants area). Clear and accurate restaurant with good level of cooking and quality products. Hope interior will be improved after renovation and it wouldn't affect the pricing.Will consider this hotel for the next visit to Salou.

We have been many times to the hotel and it is always a joy to be there.... this year some things changed a little, for example the food.... the desserts hadn't the variety that we have had over the years... mainly the choice of sweet cakes like tiramisu- and chocolate gateau weren't there... and that is always a nice and tasty end of the meal.
Staff is always very friendly and help if needed.
Animation is great with Roser and Cristian. Also the possibility on Monday to swim until midnight is a nice thing for kids.
We enjoy our stay every year but we fear the chance of the rooms will give us less comfort than we have now.... we like having the possibility of using the kitchen with table and chairs... the new rooms are more for a weekend away not for a long stay... you don't have the privacy anymore of closing the bedroom when your child wants to take a nap or wants to watch TV when you want to go to sleep...
We have missed Mr Diaz, a kind and friendly man that was the manager for a lot of years... he did in our eyes a great job.

Room tip: superior type gives you a better view

Dear chinook1968, thank you for choosing our hotel many times and your comments are very appreciated for us. We would like to comment you that, effectively, our new rooms will not have a kitchen at disposal, but we will complement and increase our services at the bar or restaurants so that guests can choose between several good options for lunch or dinner, and hope that could be suitable also for you. Regarding the layout, we have enhanced the spaciousness of our rooms and the most of them will have a single large room, although we will also have any of them with two separate rooms, for those who prefer more privacy. With the hope that we could welcome you again in the future we remain with our best wishes for you.
