Stayed Aug 2013 for one week with family of 2 adults, 2 children. Had a superior room on the 6th floor with front facing view of pool and sea, and large balcony fantastic! Room was spacious, clean with daily maid service. Only slight negative was that the sofa beds in lounge were a bid too hard, otherwise ok.
We were on a half board stay, usual buffet style with a varied choice of food for both veg/non veg eaters. However, by the 4/5th night kids got a bit tired as food was same 'old'. There were a few 'themed' nights ie. tex/mex, seafood. There is also a barbecue outside by pool every night so if nothing takes your fancy in restaurant then this was a suitable alternative. Staff were friendly and helpful in restaurant.
Pool activities for kids were good, Mondays&Wednesdays were 'pool party' days where they put out large inflatable slide/boat etc well organised and great fun! Lifeguards were on poolside everyday throughout.
Reception staff helpful and friendly, check-in/check-out quick.
Lovely modern hotel which had restaurants, roof top pool/gym area and bar. Very near to the Beach and away from the crowds. The staff were very friendly and happy to assist. We will definitely go back for another visit.
"Truly brilliant Hotel. Already trying to book for next year!"
We are family of 2 adults, 2 children & had an excellent time. Pools were fab, entertainment was good but started late 9.30pm childrens disco then 10.30pm cabaret show. Food choices were amazing. Children had their own buffet area but were allowed to also pick from the main buffet too. The staff were extremely helpful & spoke all manner of langugues so no problems. portaventura theme park busy & queing in the heat was a drag so we got stamped & readmitted in the evening which was a lot better! cooler & longest queue about 15 mins. The do a cheaper evening only ticket so we'll do that next time. The midnight firework/lake show was out amazing! get your tickets from hotel as saves time at the arrival gate. If you have short kids be aware some of the rides don't measure them until you get to the start of ride, so you've queued for ages to be told they can't go on. So check the height restrictions on each board before queuing, saves alot of tears!

Hotel Calypso is located in Salou, a beach resort on the Costa Daurada , close to Universal's Port Aventura theme park. …More
We had a fantastic holiday. The hotel was excellent, situated just 10 mins taxi drive from Reus. It cost 29Euros to get to the hotel, a little more on the return trip. The beach was only a 10 min walk or you could take the free bus. Port Aventura was also a 10 min walk away or free bus. Opposite Port Aventura is the train stop where you can catch the train into Barcelona, it takes 1 1/2 hours. Supermarkets and shops are within 5 mins walk of the hotel.
The food in the hotel is excellent with lots to choose from , some of the meat and fish is freshly cooked in front of you. There is a 3 hour time slot for breakfast and dinner so there is plenty of flexibility when to go. The staff are very friendly and helpful, most speak very good English. Everyday bedrooms are cleaned and tidied.
There is a very good pool with an area for water polo etc. Around the pool are ample sun beds and chairs. Children's entertainers work all day organising activities. A variety of nationalities stay at the hotel , predominantly Spanish, English and French. Entertainment is aimed at pleasing everyone. We thought the 3 piece band that played a range of rock and pop covers were brilliant. It was a shame they had to end their set early because of a rain shower. If the hotel had a cover over the stage and seating area this would not have been a problem as it was still warm. We wouldn't particularly recommend the entertainers "Hollywood Nights" !
We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
The ac in rooms is good. The beds are way too hard, shower door too small warer goes everywhere on floor. The tv needs more local channels. No wifi in rooms. Nice pool and entertaiment. Good all you can ear breakfast.

"Excellent hotel great location for the theme park"
This was our 4th stay at this hotel. As usual everything was wonderful. We were able to check in immediately even though it was only 10.30 in the morning when we arrived and the hotel gave us 3 rooms together overlooking the pool.
