Where to stay in Salou

Salou, mostly known for family-oriented tourism, features a wide range of resorts and beachfront rentals along the Costa Dorada. Port Adventura, Salou's well-known adventure park, features four on-site hotels that offer all-inclusive vacation packages for families. For those seeking a more tranquil experience or to get away from larger crowds, there are several in-town accommodation options within close proximity to the main areas for dining and shopping. Staying along Llevant, the main beach, allows for easy access to the lively promenade and daytime activities. Salou's Old Town, only a short walk from the beach, is dotted with lovely architecture and locally-owned shops and tends to be less crowded than the beachfront areas.
