The Hotel Molinos Park Salou is a really good place to stay if you want to sleep outside of the bustling 'nightlife' zone of Salou. The hotel is in the area known as Cap Salou. This is a wooded zone to the east of the main resort of Salou. It is a tranquil area with lots of pine trees and a craggy coastline indented with small coves and beaches. The whole area is on a slope.
The swimming pool is quite large and has a paved terrace surrounding it that is good for sunbathing. Access to the pool is downstairs from reception. There's also a small children's pool and a children's playground.
The hotel has a bar, with a spacious seating area and a pool table. During my visit the music was very load but the children and teenagers seemed to be enjoying it. There's a restaurant that offers international cuisine and a lounge and TV room for relaxing.
When I visited it was very windy on Cap Salou, but the area around the pool was sheltered.
There are arcade games too.
The hotel holds up to 600 guests and the rooms each have an en-suite bathroom with hairdryer, safe, TV, telephone and balcony. They are decorated in traditional Mediterranean style and the best feature is the large patio doors that lead out to the balcony.
On the immediate street outside the Hotel Molinos Park Salou there are other apartments. The sandy coves of Cala Font and La Punta Roja are 10 minutes walk away (including the time it takes to descend the steps to each beach).
You'll reach a few small shops within a 10 minute walk also.
To drive to the main resort of Salou will take 10 minutes. Alternatively there is a tourist bus (that looks like a train) that runs round Cap Salou and into Salou centre every few minutes. There are several bus stops throughout Cap Salou that are easy to find.
You can get to Port Aventura theme park in 15 minutes by car or taxi. Next to Port Aventura is the water park called PortAventura Aquatic park.
Via Taxi: A taxi from the airport should take about 30 minutes.
Taxi fare: €30.00
Via bus: There's a bus that leaves from outside the arrivals lounge and travels to Salou via La Pineda. The bus does a round trip back to the airport again. The journey should take about 35 - 40 minutes. Cap Salou is inbetween La Pineda and the main resort of Salou.
Single ticket: €2.00
Via train: The train station in Salou is a 15 minute drive from the Hotel Molinos Park Salou. There are no trains from the nearest airport of Reus, but the station is served by trains from Tarragona and Barcelona.
The Hotel Molinos Park Salou is a pleasant hotel that is ideal if you are searching for somewhere peaceful to stay away from the main bustling nightlife. It is surrounded by sweet smelling pine trees and is only a 10 minute walk to the sea.
