I have stayed a few times there. For me the nicest hotel is Caribe, but is only half board. El Paso is great and is all inclusive. You will get a fast track card to enjoy a few sneeky queue cutting rides.

With staying at the El Paso you get to eat in the oarks at certain vendors and get a refillable cup so saves you a bit of cash.
My hubby is going to El Paso last week of May and is costing £608 each all inclusive

Dont forget the new ride this year too... sounds fab
Have a great time

Having been almost every year for the past few years and stayed onsite, I would say it is invaluable to stay at Hotel PortAventura/Villa Mediterranea or Hotel Gold River as they have direct park access, so you can just walk in and out as you please, plus they tend to let you in to the park earlier. I'm not sure how they price up to the others though. Generally the best rates are booked for offer periods through the official website.

You can dine-around at any other restaurant on property with the half board plan, so you can still explore Hotel Caribe if you stayed at Hotel Gold River for example. Also you no longer get complimentary Hotel Express access, but there are heavily discounted prices available for hotel guests.

Seriously need tips booking this, will certainly book an onsite hotel but question is which one? Not bothered about meals etc just need breakfast included. Really need the cheapest method of booking this as to whether I book flights seperately or just book it altogether? Do portaventura do a brochure to send for booking info?  Cheers andy xxx

to be honest if you are looking for a cheaper option then maybe staying in Salou and then buying multi day tickets with added water park may be better for you

Is the official site with all the details I need. We found the cheapest price was found booking through this site for hotel + ticket + half board/B&B, and then we booked flights to Reus with Ryanair.
