this was our second time to this hotel and it was even better than the first..we booked for 10 nights this time as 7nights wasn't long enough to fit everything in. the food in the hotel had improved greatly from the previous year, the a la carte restaurant was delicious and would highly recommend a visit if you like Mexican food. Portaventura are celebrating their 20year anniversary and the shows and firework displays were fantastic. we payed for express wristbands to queue jump the big rides although a little expensive they were worth every penny and saved standing in long queues some of which were over 60mins waiting time. if I was going to pick a fault with this hotel I would say the rooms could do with being a bit bigger, not much space for a family of four. no storage space and very little wardrobe space for hanging clothes, most of ours stayed in our cases and stored under the bed. the sleeping arrangements caused a problem to, I have a teenage daughter and a 6 year old son who had to share a bed as there was only 2double beds in the room, I think bunk beds or 2 singles would have saved this issue.. saying that it hasn't put me off returning and im sure we will be back in a year a two.

Having spent another excellent week at this hotel from 23/6/15 to 30/6/15 I can say that the hotel did not disappoint. We arrived at 8.30 in the evening and were checked in quickly and with tickets for lunch in the park each day. I had asked the tour operator to request rooms together for my family and we were given rooms together in the Guagolote block which overlooks the lovely pool. the hotel staff were very friendly and gave us excellent service through out our stay. The reception service is greatly improved since we stayed at the hotel 4 years ago, there were plenty of staff to assist guests and always with a smile. Some people have commented on reviews that they felt that the bar staff favoured some guests over others when it comes to serving drinks in the evening. Our experience is that there was a very orderly queue and that all guests were served quickly and efficiently, we could not fault the service. The standard and variety of food was very good in both the buffet and the el coyote restaurants. we did not eat at the pool bar so can not comment on this but the sangria and the ice cream were lovely. (Chicle ice cream was especially nice). The pool area was fairly busy but you could always find loungers and some shade which was needed as it was 28-30 degrees every day. (it would be nice if the hotel purchased some cushions for the sunloungers, we have stayed in hotels where they have piles of cushions which can be hosed down each day and they really do make a difference to the level of comfort) The pool was lovely and warm and it is manned by lifeguards to keep the little ones safe. we purchased fast pass wrist bands for 61 euros each and these gave us unlimited fast pass on the rides listed all week. in the past we only purchased the fast pass tickets for one day but this was really money well spent if you like the rides like silver river flume, furious baco, stampida, shambala etc. the time we saved by not queing we were able to relax by the pool. we have visited the park 4 times now, twice at the portaventura hotel on half board and twice at the el paso all inclusive. all 4 holidays have been fantastic and we have noticed that in the 10 years between our first and latest trip the park still looks as good as ever and the rides just get better. There is a sign up now to say that they are building Ferrari Land at the park, I'm sure it will be fantastic! We paid for 2 days in the Costa Caribe water park and had great fun trying the new slides, the old slides and bobbing along on a hoop on the lazy river. There are a couple of new pools one with hydrotherapy beds and massage jets and another with a pirate ship with water slides for little ones. It really is a great water park. there has been an improvement in the provision of places to eat with the lunch vouchers provided with all inclusive. you can now eat at 8 different places across the 2 parks and there is always a good choice of food with plenty of healthy options if you feel the need. We have always enjoyed our holidays at portaventura but we are very impressed with the continuous improvements which make each holiday better and better. A big thank you to all concerned.

not impressed with this hotel at all , nightmare to get served at reception not enough staff to cover, rooms basic and beds awful, opened the patio doors to trees and shrubs, bathroom light kicked off extractor fan which was noisy, food okay and theme night but you have to wait to be seated by staff at breakfast lunch and dinner which was stupid as plenty of tables available , all inclusive a rip off as only one pool bar open during the day and major bar ques at night , entertainment poor nothing at poolside daytime and basic kids disco at night.
