Sol Costa Daurada

Putting aside the pleasing aesthetics and excellent facilities for one moment, the real selling point of the Sol Costa Daurada hotel is its prime location, right in the centre of picturesque Salou.

Catering to its huge numbers of visitors, it has an on-site English-style pub, kids’ club and a lagoon-inspired pool that takes up much of the grounds. Although the town centre is just outside, with a restaurant that serves up a varied banquet of both cooked to order and buffet options, there is little motivation to stray from the complex. A luxurious spa, well-equipped gym and sunny bedrooms complete the excellent facilities.

Overview of Salou

When the call for a little Spanish sun is too much to ignore, holidays to the Costa Dorada more than satisfy. The perfect blend of beaches and activities, this charming region loves to welcome tourists from all over the world and has a number of spots that cater to different whims.

For a relaxing holiday dominated by the beach, Salou, where you’ll find the Sol Costa Daurada hotel, has two Blue-Flag stretches of sand to enjoy, both offering undisturbed views out over the Mediterranean Sea. Ideal for families, Salou has plenty of laid-back cafes and shops to dive into.

Things to do in Salou

Days spent enjoying the pool at the Sol Costa Daurada hotel pool are a must, as well as plenty of beach time, but there’s more to do than simply lounging. At either of the beaches, you can snorkel and swim in the tranquil waters are the main hub of Salou is just a few moments away.

Head to the Avenida Jaume I, on the promenade, where you’ll find lots of shops to explore, with even more treasures to be found at the Sunday and Monday markets. There’s family fun to be had, too, with Spain’s largest theme park, PortAventura World, in Salou itself. It’s a great way to keep the kids happy and work up a serious appetite for a local evening meal.

With so much to be muchas gracias for in Salou, the whole family will love spending quality time together here. Just don’t forget your sunblock, as the Spanish sun gets positively tropical!

Resort Summary

Salou has two main beaches – both of which are European Blue Flag winners – that offer the kind of beautiful, fine sand and stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea that we’ve come to expect from holidays to Costa Dorada. Playa de Llevant beach is a great choice for families as the water remains calm and shallow and the sand is consistently smooth – ideal conditions for splashing around or doing some snorkelling. Playa de Llevant has a long stretch of beach bars and there are also small play areas for children along the promenade.

The second beach in Salou is Playa de Ponent. It’s slightly shorter than Playa de Llevant but still a kilometre long with quaint cafes dotted along the sand, perfect for an ice cold refreshment. If you want to venture further afield the busier tourist hotspot of Cambrils is just up the coast line.
