T2 No smoking and no other food shops
Really not happy with this airport. Travel assisstance takes forever to get to you, language barriers and you're not advised of any area restrictions or limitations before during or after security. Security rush you through with"""rapidos"" which honestly made me want to cry with all the attention while struggling with a toddler in pushchair and autistic elder child . To find out then travel assistance don't stay with you, they leave and come back just before boarding if they bother to. Can't smoke or buy any other food other than sandwiches which where spotted with black bits?? Cant smoke after security. the last leg of our holiday and its been shite - 15 May 2024 - 10:02

The textile museum is now located in the Design Museum, and it’s just costumes. There is no technical information about textile production or creation. Be warned that there are NO EXHIBITS pre-1550.

  2. salou - serena (16 May 2011 - 10:30)

    sono stata a salou l'anno scorso e mi sono gtraovata devvero bene. belle le spiaggie, specialmente quella di cap salou e della pineda, meno bello il mare di salou centro ma spiaggia molto affollata, piena di giovani e di pr che propongono la serata nei locali della città... mare bello e rilassante e bella la vita notturna, ci sono moltissimi locali e piccole discoteche nelle quali non si paga l'ingresso e non si ha l'obbligo di consumazione... noi eravamo soliti fare tappa in 3 o 4 locali a sera ed era davvero divertente! per quanto riguarda il cibo, consiglio la fantastica paella e il memorabile e squisitissmo pollo accompagnato alla sangria. in generale tutta la carne spagnola è molto buona. salou è davvero molto carina e se non gradite molto la vita da discotecari potete rilassarvi con una tranquilla passeggiata sul lungomare dove ci sono delle slendide fontane colorate. per qunato riguarda il costo della vita, consiglio di spostarsi in taxi la sera e in bus durante il giorno perchè la notte i bus hanno tariffe molto alte e con il taxi si risparmia... mentre noleggiare uno scooter non è economicissimo...mangiare in pub e ristoranti costa come in italia, anzi come in sud italia... quidni con 10/15 euro vi saziate per bene... in generale consibglio questa località perchè il mare è bello e rilassante e la notte ci si può davvero divertire nelle numerose discoteche...a me è piaciuto moltissimo e sicuramente ci tornerò! ;)

    Salou pertenece a la costa Dorada y no a la costa Brava como aparece en el primer comentario.

    Por favor, corregir este error.

    I love it here. Great beach and food!!!

  5. Salou town - Mark Root, Colchester, Essex UK (8 Mar 2006 - 20:55)

    Salou is without doubt one of my favourite resorts. Catalonia in itself is fantastic with amazing places and people but for the sheer fun of it Salou wins hands down. The shopping is great, the beaches are incredible, the restaurants are fabulous - especially the Quim Font on the front. I bring my family to Salou annually and we continually enjoy ourselves.
