I have booked to stay at Jardines Paraisol Apatments for 4 nights in November. Has anyone stayed at these and are they ok. and are they to far from salou cener and shops ect.
Hi Ann, I haven't stayed at these apartments but checking the map, they are fairly well situated for Salou centre, shops and railway station. There is a fairly good shopping street nearby which goes through the old town and ends at the beach / marina end. This end of Salou will still be 'normal' in November so there should still be life about the town. Handy for busses too.
Thankyou so much for your reply it has helped put my mind at ease. what is the weather like at the moment, as i go next week am wondering what clothes to take
Has anyone stayed at this RCI Timeshare Resort in Salou. Visiting there in May and would like to know more about it. Understand the train ride to Barcelona takes 1.5hrs and costs +/- Euro 9.6 one way.
Hi. Dave Mullany again. The timeshare is fine - well up to the usual RCI standards, although it would have been nice to have a washing machine. It's situated in a quiet and relatively uninteresting part of town and the views are pretty vrot, but you won't be spending a lot of the time inside I guess.
One caveat: if you have a car larger than a Dinky, don't even begin to consider the unit's undercover parking - truly, the last circle of Dante's Hell . . .
Opt instead for the side road (on the right of the building as you face the main drag); it's safe, quiet and you can usually check your car from your balcony. Just don;t park too close to any other car, OK - the Spaniard's park the way they fight bulls . . .
How far is the train station from Club Jardines Paraisol, Salou, which is situated at Calle Ciutat de Reus Number 19.
Thanks so much
Hi Sharon, Dave Mullany from Durban here. If you're talking about the RCI resort (we stayed there in 2003) it's about a leisurely 25 minute walk to the station. (turn to your right as you exit the building and just keep going). That apart, the timeshare staff are friendly and helpful and, when we were there, spoke pretty good English.
Assuming you're planning a trip to Barcelona, it's worth knowing the train for the big city enters the Salou station on your right (with your back to the station building). The journey takes about an hour and a quarter (try for a right-hand seat for good sea views).
In Barcelona, get off at Passeig de Gracia (not Barcelona Sants) - the latter is convenient to most major attractions and, best of all, when you come out of the (underground) train station you'll be confronted by the spectacular facade of Antonio Gaudi's Casa Batllo.
PS: Be very very aware of pickpockets in Barcelona - they're everywhere. If you get brushed up against repeatedly by someone (especially in a crowd or in a shop), take the gap or you'll end up minus your belongings.
That aside, hope you enjoy this fabulous city . . . Cheers
