As for La Pineda resort, it’s lovely, the beach is a flat, 10 min walk away and is very long and the sea is very shallow, so great for kids, there are a few lovely looking restaurants, a few bars and a few shops right outside Estival and a short walk away there are lots of other shops, coffee shops etc., if you want to do something other than stay at Estival. It’s small but quite busy in the daytime, lots of Spanish holidaying here, which we like.

Lovely quiet family resort, near to Cambrils, Tarragona and Salou. Regular bus services to resorts along the coast. The beach at La Pineda, is lovely soft sand and clear blue sea which is nice and shallow for little ones. A few shops and small supermarkets, but not loads to do on a night.

La Pineda is set just out of the hustle and bustle of Salou, although it has a beautiful beach and bar strip it's the perfect place for a quiet holiday for romance or families. 2nd time here and just booked our 3rd! There are 2 game arcades that are fun and the bars/pubs and restaurants are not expensive.

It is a very clean safe resort. It is so easy to get to Salou, Cambrils and Tarragona all of which are worth a visit. The bus service is excellent and regular. A 10 trip ticket is only 12 euros. I have stayed in La Pineda on my own as it is very safe compared to Salou. I am happy to go there alone.

It was quiet and there weren't many places to eat out. We had good food in the apartments restaurant though. La Pineda beach was beautiful and very clean. Lots of kids play parks near Pineda park and at the beach. The aqua polis water park was great although would recommend taking food with you as it's extortionate! A great day out though. We used the bus a lot and bought a T10 card which was well worth the money. The bus can take you to the other end of La Pineda, on to Salou and also PortaVentura.

I had a really good holiday here. The local area is great and we had a couple of really nice meals. The ice cream kiosks are lovely. The shops are good and there's a couple of good supermarkets. The walk along the beachfront is nice. In the distance towards Taragona you can see a massive power station on the coast. It doesn't look good. It really put me off. There is a great bus service called La Plana and we used the buses a lot. There's a shop where you can buy the bus tickets in advance which saves you money. We booked a great day trip to Barcelona which was brilliant. Went to Tarrogona three times, Salou three times. I would go to Salou and Taragona again but will never stay in La Pineda again. I felt a bit uncomfortable on the beach seeing the power station in the back ground and then there were tiny jelly fish in the shallow end so that stopped me going in the sea. My husband and kids loved it more that me. I would recommend it but after two weeks I was glad to go home. Aquopolis is right in the centre of La Pineda. We went there twice and had a great time. The Spanish don't like to queue and push in all the time. The sangria in La Pineda was amazing. We found a nice restaurant further down - owned by a french guy, can't remember what it's called. It was fantastic. The food was wonderful. It wasn't too expensive in the resort - we spent more on meals in Majorca 8 years ago - the cost was reasonable because I thInk this was a Spanish holiday resort too.

Quiet resort but that suited us, very easy to walk from one end to the other along the beach promenade, good bus service if you want to go to the busier resort of Salou, Tarragona or Barcelona. Aquopolis waterpark very good, food and drink prices similar to home, will definitely be back!

The resort is very nice and fairly large sitting area near bar. Not too crowded on this occasion. Entertainment usually the same for children's disco daily - But the children enjoyed that a lot. Pool area very clean and some shady areas with tall trees. Shops close to the resort and walking along the beach in the evenings is a must.

Beaches

La Pineda offers 3.5km of fine golden sands which is split into 3 main beaches, Els Prats, La Pineda and El Roca. There are plenty of facilities and services at all beaches which makes it perfect for those who just want to relax or for those who wish to take part in the many water sports available.

El Prats beach tends to be a little quieter than the other beaches, perhaps due to the fact that it is situated close to the industrial harbour and the water and sand are not as good quality as elsewhere.

Things to Do

The main attraction in La Pineda is probably Aquopolis, the water park. There is a whole host of water slides and rides for kids of all ages, white water rapids and play areas for small kids which include mini golf, mini zoo and bumper boats. The park also has a dolphinarium and sea lion shows which are just great.

If you are looking for a little culture, go and visit the ruins of Callipolis, where you will see a large area of villas and thermal baths from the ancient Roman settlement. There is also a castle and fortress worth visiting in Cambrils which is just outside La Pineda.

Due to its great landscape, La Pineda is ideal for a number of outdoor activities such as horse riding, tennis and of course golf.

Out and About

Although there is maybe not just as much going on in La Pineda as there is in the neighbouring Salou, there is still plenty to do for a fun family holiday. There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants, some of which stay open into the early hours, especially in the summer months.

The restaurants offer a mix of Spanish and International dishes so you are bound to find something to your liking.

Down at the promenade, there is an entertainment centre which is open both day and night and offers bars, street cafes, ice cream parlours and shady terraces. There are also shows for children, folk festivals and street parties going on along the promenade during the summer months.

There are a few shops in the resort but most of them are souvenir shops and supermarkets but city of Tarragona is not far away and offers a great selection of Spanish boutiques. There is also a large shopping mall in Tarragona.

Nearby Attractions

Perhaps one of the biggest attractions in the area, Port Aventura Theme Park is not far away. The park is split into 4 different themed areas, each with their own attractions, rides and restaurants. There is also a water park, Costa Caribe right next to the theme park which is also great fun for all the family.

If it%u2019s a little culture you are looking for then take a trip to Cambrils, the castle and its surrounding fortress is well worth a visit.

The city of Tarragona is just a short bus ride away and is great for those who enjoy shopping. The pretty main street is covered in exclusive Spanish boutiques and there is a large shopping mall just outside the city so you will be sure to find anything you need.
