You may be pleased to hear that during October Half term is actually very quite because the school kids don't have a break then in Spain, however there are a fair few school trips going there, however that never changes at Port Aventura, just avoid Summer time like the plague, don't get me wrong PA is amazing during summer, apart from the masses upon masses of people, so either May half term or October half term are two very good dates to go, if you are looking for a time that keeps within school holidays! I have done all times of year at PA now, and I can tell you that there is sooo much to do, even on a fairly dead day, you will struggle to do 3/4 of the park!
I would avoid the fastrack system, because I don't think it is value for money, however you will have a great time no matter when you go! Food and Drink is insane at Port Aventura, but I suppose its all part of it!
As for the Villa Romana, the food is great, however try to eat before 8:30 ish, because thats when the spanish come to eat, and its very busy, but otherwise the hotel is almost perfect, we had a view of Shambhala from our room, which was fantastic! Its also literally 4 minutes walk, which is nothing, it infact takes a car longer to actually get into the car park!
Halloween starts around mid-end September through to mid November! However be warned, that Port Aventura only operate some of the Halloween at Weekends only!!!!!! By that I mean midweek the halloween shows and Horror in pentinence horror maze operate however the parade, fireworks display, Mina Del Diablo and del miedo (something like that) DO NOT OPERATE during midweek, and to be fair with good reason, the park is dead midweek, but during Halloween weekends the queues reach 3 hours for the mazes!!!! However its still good even if you go midweek, its just not as much in the way of extras!
