the beach in salou if fab very clean!

if you fancy a bit of shopping there is a big shopping centre in tarragona which is one stop on the train from portavrntura, also if your into historical aspect they have some lovely old ruins ( not sure the kids will like it tho!)

they do a cute little road train into salou
from your hotel which the kis will love!

the theme park is really catered for younger kids as well as the older ones (like my OH!) so im sure they will love it!

if you fancy barcelona, its about an hour and to be honest i think young kids would get quiet bored quiet quickly

erm if i think of anything else ill let you know!!

hi Elaine me again!!

just thought id let you know a bit about when we did a day in barcelona, to give you a little idea!

we got the train in and when straight to the gaudi catherdral to have a nosey, the qeues were crazy so we just had a look on the outside!( theres a mcdonalds arcoss the road if the kids need a mcflurry to keep them quiet, how sad i no that!)

if you want to see Everything, opp the gaudi you can get an opentop bus ride which does the docklands olmpic village and quite a few other sites! the good thing with this is you can jump on and off as many times as you like and the ticket covers four different routes!

we decided to go to the docklands which was nice- they have a shopping centre there too!

then we walked up the ramblas which is a long street of shops and street performers and market stalls which was nice!

we also when to the nu camp ( barcelonas football ground for the OH) so if you or family are interested i would set aside a good 4 hours or so because its a tour and a meusem! (personally i coudnt wait to get out!

sorry if im rambling but hope this helps!

ooo and just remembered to say salou shopping isnt much, is very very touristy, pretty much every other shop is a gift shop sort of thing which gets a little boring after a while!
ok i am defo rambling now sorry!!

you really are great to take the time out for "little" old me,its sounds great there i am like an excited child with the waiting to go!!!!!
id love to see the cathedral and my oh loves all things like that,and it a most definite that we must see the stadium.
the bus sounds great too and value as you can use it as much as we need.

Hi Elaine,

I have stayed in the Hotel PortAventura in Salou. Unfortunately we stayed there a few years ago when it first opened and there were lots of teething problems, so maybe they have manged to resolve those now. My husband and children love the theme park and we have been there around 5 times since then, but always staying in different hotels. We were there in April of this year and we stayed at the Hotel El Paso because this was the only one with vacancies and it was absolutely fine.

The PortAventura is the nearest hotel to the theme park, but the other hotels are only a 10 min walk and there is a courtesy train to the park. I think all of the hotels are of a pretty good standard, although I would say the food leaves a lot to be desired! We ate one evening in our hotel and for 2 adults and 4 children the bill came to 100 Euros, with no alcohol included! Also the park can be expensive for drinks and snacks etc but hey, you're on holiday and I think most theme parks charge as much as they can get away with. Hope you have a great time. x

Thanx Sarah,
Ive Been On Tripadvisor But Just Thought That Id Come And Ask On Here As I Could Ask Questions,we Are Staying Half Board So We Have Breakfast And Evening Meals Included,im Hoping We Have A Great Time As It Was Fairly Expensive(5000 Euro)and Its Our 1st Holiday In 6 Years!!!!
At Least I Know Its Not A Bad Place If People Like Yourself And Klee Are Returning(TO SALOU) So Thats A Bonus,
Thanx For The Insight,and Other Info Much Appreciated,
Elaine X
