When you enter the Catalonia Garden Salou you'll find that it is a huge apartment complex that is made up of buildings that are spread across both sides of the road.
When I visited there was a definite party atmosphere with really loud poolside music. There were predominantly English and Dutch tourists.
I spent one afternoon looking around the Catalonia Gardens complex.
There are British style restaurants and English flags hanging from the walls and ceiling. One of the bar-restaurants is called 'Troffers Barbecue'.
There's a reception and the staff there speak English. They have leaflets about local attractions and maps of the town.
Each block on each side of the road has a pool and each pool is surrounded by a large grassed area that has some shade from pine trees.
There are over 92 apartments and they either sleep 3 - 5 people, 4 - 6 people, or there are 1 bedroom apartments with a sofa bed for 2-4 people.
The rooms either have views across the pool or to the street, and each room has a balcony with space to site outside.
Apartments Location And Facilities
There is a row of British and Irish bars within 2 minutes walk. Including the well known Murphy´s Pub.
The rest of the nightlife in Salou is within a 5 minutes stroll, and there are also discos and bars on the ground floor underneath some of the apartments.
Across the road is a cashpoint. To reach the nearest bars and restaurants head for the same area as where you'll find the nightlife. The bars are side by side with mini supermarkets.
