Advantages: Hotel right on the beach
I stayed at the Golden Donaire Hotel in La Pineda last year with my partner , and enjoyed it so much we booked again for this year shortly after we got home!
This is a modern, clean and good value for money hotel with 8 floors and 400+ rooms, located in La Pineda on the Costa Dorada, which is much quieter than its busier neighbour, Salou.
Check in was fast and the staff poilte and welcoming. and we were given our key and leaflets explaining information about the hotel and services.
Our room contained a double bed and a single bed, built in wardrobe, dressing table & chair, TV, and a spacious bathroom with bath, overhead shower, toilet, sink and bidet.
Patio doors opened out onto a spacious balcony containing table and chairs ( the sea view is highly recommended).
The cleanliness of this hotel I cannot rate highly enough as it was spotless! The cleaners worked around the clock - still working hard at 11pm at night! The rooms were cleaned every day and nothing was too much trouble - we asked for extra pillows and the maid brought them right away.
The meals were fantastic, always a big selection and also an Italian Corner. Beware you will put on weight as the desserts were to die for!
We never had to queue for the restaurant, all you had to do was wait a little for the initial opening rush to die down, then you could go in and get a table right away. The night we arrived,our flight had been delayed and the restaurant was closing but the manager kindly let us in to have a meal . All the hotel staff were courteous and friendly we had no problems.
The best thing about the hotel is its location - right on the beach! Just walking out the door and right on to the beach was heaven! The beach is very long and plenty of space for everyone.
The Aquopolis water park is 5 mins walk from the hotel, a small supermarket right opposite the hotel and local shops and bars also a 5 min walk.
The hotel entertainment wasn't bad either, a different show every night or you could walk along to the local bars if you fancied a change.
All in all this was a wonderful hotel and holiday and I would recommend it to anyone. Can't wait to go back!
You can book this hotel via Thomsons.
Summary: Excelllent value for money, fantastic location
