Cambrils holiday - Elise P. London. Date of travel: Jul 2008
Love Cambrils! Excellent beaches, fantastic shopping and not over run (if you go outside of school holidays). So many great places to eat and the boutique shops sell loads of unique pieces that make me the envy of my friends when I get back to the UK. I spend 4 weeks here each year and have made some wonderful (Spanish) friends here. For me the ideal holiday location.

Cambrils was lovely, very Spanish at the time we were there not too many foreign tourists and most importantly no rowdies! Lovely food, I'd recommend eating in the bars tucked away in the back streets, because the atmosphere of a family run restaurant is just so much better. The general rule here seemed to be - the bigger "more upmarket" restaurant, the smaller the portions, slower service and food that is just about bordering average. Had the experience in a wine tasting restaurant called "Gran Chic". Oh what a drag. Staff did not understand English (didn't even make the effort) and menu was all in Spanish. It took 50 minutes to get our food, which although lovely presented, not exceptionally good. At the end of what proved to be the longest lunch ever we found that we were not only overcharged, but also charged for items we've never even ordered! Different experience was Restaurant "Els dofins" A small, family run place with the most amazing paella! The menus were in several languages (English, French, Italian, German, etc) and staff were very friendly, attentive and really went out of their way to make our dining experience pleasant. I do not need to mention that it was also an excellent value for money. So, not posh, but my oh my what food!

We like Cambrils becaus it's clost to Port Aventura; our Grandchildren love it there, and so do all the family, its well worth a visit for any age group. We booked the park using the telephone number on the website for the park, it happened to be in Birmingham, what a bargain, 14 days for the price of three. If you want a water park, the one in La Pineda is much nicer than Costa Caribe, the water is warmer, and there is also a Dolphin Show included in the price, La Pineda is quite a nice resort too, some lovely restaurants and cafés.

I really liked Cambrils - VictorMeldrew. Date of travel: Jul 2006
Pleasant bustling town with an attractive working port. Good centre to explore Costa Daurada.Parking can be a pain in season. Note that this is where the Spanish go on hols so don't expect egg and chips. A little of the lingo will really help - as long as you try. French is more widely spoken than English.Nice and flat with a pleasant promenade. Don't get much the more upmarket Cambrils mixed up with neighbouring Blackpool-in-the-sun Salou.(If you really do want egg and chips at the Britsh Bar, go to Salou.) We've been back several times. Try the Monica or the Tryp Port Cambrils
