Review: Cala Font Hotel Salou
The Cala Font Hotel in Salou overlooks a charming cove of the same name. It is in a superb location in an area called Cap Salou, east of Salou. From the hotel you have access to the cove within 1 minutes walk.
Cap Salou is a really nice area that's 10 minutes drive east of Salou. It's a more modern area and there's lots of pine trees. You can actually smell the scent of the pine trees in the air. The whole area of Cap Salou is on a hill. So wherever you are here you'll be on some sort of slope.
When you enter the Cala Font Hotel Salou you'll find that the most unusual feature is a big circular hole in the floor. Through this you can see the bar downstairs. The colour scheme in the lobby is very rose, and there are huge picture windows to the left as you enter that give perfect views across the pool to the sea.
