We booked our family holiday last year, we had no idea when we arrived there would be hundreds of schoolchildren having their overnight "graduation" this was 11 year olds and last year high school. We found them rude, very noisy, one evening after having our evening meal we were sat outside and were spat on from school children 3 floors up! There was no escape from them, as one group left others replaced them apart fromSaturdays & Sunday's.

Great Hotel....but

Arrived on Bus Plana from Barcelona Airport to this Resort Hotel.Bus trip took 1 hour 40 mins to Caribe Hotel(bus does not go up to El Paso Hotel which is a let down,Price 27 euros per peron over 7)then its a 5 min walk up to the El Paso hotel,if you see the small resort bus\train there at Caribe bus stop just get to up to El Paso. Hotel is big and very well laid out. We got a superior room for 2 adults and 2 kids 8 and 12.These are in the actual main reception building which is great. Like in Disneyland you get to choose your breakfast time for every day of your stay. We recieved 88 euros worth of fast pass tickets free just for having a superior room plus the eight day park tickets.We all got a luxury red towel for use during our stay,apart from the standard white ones.I saw many using these red ones in the pool instead of renting out the grey towels from reception.We always take our own beach ones from home. Pool is excellent,massive and usualy clean but the amount of people does show during the afternoon as some areas get very dirty.Many sunbeds but still does take good luck to find some shade after 12.Sunbeds are all plastic and a bit of a let down as we are used to the soft material ones,these are hard and can get uncomfortable.Pool is massive and very nice.4 lifeguards on duty all the time wich is great.No floatables allowed so dont buy any if going to be used by adults as they are only allowed in the kids pool.Too many people playing with balls in pool so expect a ball on your head at some point. Ice cream is Walls and is free in the hotel and in the pool bar you can get served cones with your choice of flavour.Crisps and sweets must be paid for.Bottled water has to be paid for. The park is just 5 mins away walking or a free bus/train drive away from outside the hotel. We had park tickets included during all our stay. Hotel food and drink was all inclusive,and have to say it was to a very high standard.Coke and Damm beer were the drink brands.Danone and Walls for ice cream were also free except for some specific Magnum,Corneto soft etc selections. Nice to see free slush drinks for kids.Self service soft drinks for all ,plenty of ice.All coffee and tea is free. The hotel restaurant is called Merida there breakfast and all meals are served.Be warned unsless it changes the restaurant is extremely hot as management have the air con set at 24 degrees which with 36 degrees and high humidity outside it does make it very difficult to eat properly,a shame when food is so good.It is unbearable inside that dining room and the waiters have there own wet tshirt comp every day,the one that sweats the most wins!Feel sorry for them.Today friday we complained at reception about the heat in the dining room,hope they take notice,we still have three days left here.Shame is one day there could be a serious incident with heat stroke there. There are two pool bars.One.Bahia the other Maya.The Maya serves hotdogs,natchos,burgers,chips etc during all the day for free.There is no specific snack time like in other all inclusive.....here you eat all the time,if you want. Then we have the bar next to the dining room Merida.They serve only drinks and tea and have coffee machines. There is a free hotel to salou beach bus every day at 10 and 11am then back at 4pm to hotel.This is great if you want to go to the beach or visit salou for shopping then you can always get a taxi back for around 8 euros for 4. To finish i would like to say we have enjoyed our 5 days up to now(we are still here until Monday)and we are sure to return to this hotel. It is a shame the air con problems during dining times due to management decision.Customers should be their first priority,especially during this summer which is the worst ever.

Having read a lot off negative reviews I have to say I was quite nervous about coming to the El Paso. However was very pleased on arrival. Check In took only 5 minutes Room basic but very clean (sheets and towels changed every day) The food was great, lots of choice and always piping hot. All staff very friendly and helpful nothing was a problem. Having lunch vouchers for park was also a great bonus and yes food was quite repetitive in park but was always fresh and hot and saved money. Again beds in rooms were comfy no complaints. Also we experienced no queues to get served at the bar at any point in our holiday. Our room was in main block & nice and quiet. My only complaint would be lack off air con in the restaurant as got very hot! I would certainly not hesitate to return to the El Paso as was great location for park. We travelled with 4 adults & 3 kids ages 10,7 & 1. Something for everyone.

Family holiday in Portaventura

The hotel was excellent. While the rooms are relatively basic, they are what you would expect in Spain. The all inclusive package included all meals, snacks and drinks. These were really good quality and the fact that they provide vouchers to get meals in the theme park when you visit is a real bonus (only the self serve restaurants). I have seen complaints on the variety of food in the hotel, while the themes repeat most days eg a fish dish, red meat, white meat, veg, pastas, etc the composition is always different, in the seven days we were there the meat choices and the fish dishes were different every day. The proximity to the parks allows for flexibility. If you feel tired from the heat you can nip back to the hotel in 10 minutes and have a break from the sun. Similarly in the evening you can pop up to see the shows and the fireworks. The pools at the hotel were excellent, and it is also not too far to walk to the beach. If you get the chance to seen cirque du soleil go - amazing and there are better discounts if you book in advance from the Portaventura website.
