Modelled on a traditional Mediterranean village, the buildings at this popular resort are adobe-walled, red-roofed villas set around an outdoor pool complex. Rooms have a bright feel – all light wood and natural light – and afford you unlimited access to PortAventura theme park, which is home to roller coasters, log flumes, teacups and more, in themed areas based on different parts of the world.

2. Blaumar Hotel Salou, for beachfront boho chic

With wicker furniture everywhere, oars decorating the walls and a sandy colour palette, there’s a boho, beachy feel to this four-star hotel in Salou. Rooms maintain this aesthetic and have terraces overlooking either the street or the sea – while Spanish cuisine is beautifully presented at the Arena Tapas Restaurant, where the jamón ibérico is particularly celebrated.

3. Hotel Regente Aragón Gastronómico, for modern flair

If top-quality food is important to you when booking a holiday, look no further than this Salou hotel – where the in-house restaurant, Deliranto, has been awarded a Michelin star for its superb tasting menus, based on stories from Orpheus to Alice in Wonderland. Rooms are stylish and modern, and the superior rooms – with walls and floors decked out in polished wood – are particularly lovely.

4. Sol Costa Daurada, for contemporary convenience

Just a few minutes’ walk from the PortAventura theme park, this resort’s location is hard to beat – but it has much to recommend it besides.

Table tennis, pool, table football and a large lagoon pool are among the recreational amenities on offer.
