Salou’s best aparthotels for a sunny family holiday in Spain

By Emma Power,

Salou is famous as a top beach destination for the Brits and Irish thanks to the fine, golden sands which give the coast its name (“Daurada” being Catalan for “golden”).

The resort town promises all you could possibly need for a sun holiday in Spain. Dig into a first-rate paella in one of the bustling beach restaurants, or enjoy a picturesque bike ride along one of the beautiful beachfront promenades.

Make the most of your trip by staying in one of the town’s many aparthotels, with all the services of a hotel but with the added freedom of an apartment – perfect for families who like some extra space and being able to whip up their own meals.


Cye Holiday Centre

The CYE Aparthotel Holiday Centre offers all the same services as a hotel, but with the added freedom of a holiday apartment.

The apartments are modern, clean and bright, and sleep up to a maximum of 6 people, ideal for big families! You can cook up a storm in your fully furnished kitchen or if you fancy a treat, there are weekly themed dinners where you can enjoy international cuisine in the onsite restaurants.
