Whether you are a thrill seeker looking for the fast spins and steep drops of the PortAventura Theme Park or you are visiting for the beauty of the beaches, interrupted only by rocky coves, Salou is the perfect choice for a low cost European getaway.
Salou is a pretty small city with only 27,000 residents, so cheap Salou hotels will all be within walking distance of everything else in the city. Of course if you are coming here for Salou holidays by the beach you might prefer to be slightly out of town in one of the nearby resorts, in which case you might want to consider cheap Costa Dorada car hire to avoid the costs of taxis or inconvenience of public transport in getting to the cheap hotels in Salou. In addition to cheap hotels in Salou you could consider finding hotels in Tarragona, only 10 kilometres away, which has a much larger population and is blessed with ruins dating from the Roman period next to tranquil beaches.
The tourist season in Salou matches the traditional European summer of June through to September where average temperatures are between 20°C and 25°C. The prices will rise with demand and this is especially strong in school holidays. A tip to get cheap Salou hotels would be to book just outside the season. Temperatures in October are still reasonable, whilst you will have both a cheaper holiday and fewer tourists to compete for space on the beaches and in queues for rides.
