Sol Port Hotel is one of Cambrils' newest offerings. It sits between the port and the beach areas in the town centre, a 100 metre walk from the seafront. From the outside, it is a modern structure, with square balconies and sharp edges that give it the appearance of a conference centre.
The lobby area is light and bright, with white walls and large windows allowing the sunshine in. The hotel is probably one of the largest in the town centre, offering many of the amenities that you will find at the hotels along the Avenida Diputacio, whilst also providing the convenience of being close to the top class bars and restaurants that are in the port area of Cambrils.

Sol Port Hotel has two outdoor swimming pools that are open to all customers. They are unheated and are open all year round. However, depending on the weather, once it becomes colder, there is no longer a lifeguard at the pool. A rope around the pool signals the fact that you are free to use it, but you do it at your own risk. The pool is surrounded by loungers. During the summer months (these vary depending on the weather), there is a small shop in the pool area where you can buy ice creams, drinks and snacks.
The hotel contains a fitness area with running machines, cycling machine and bikes. There are also two saunas - one for men and one for women. These facilities are open to all customers of the hotel.

Pets are not allowed to stay in the hotel.
Room service is available. However, I found that this did not always meet the standards that I might expect from a four star hotel. Ice is not available to your room. Although, during my stay the reception staff did kindly oblige and find me a few chunks of ice from the bar in the lobby.

Sol Port Hotel is one of the most central hotels in Cambrils. It is located just behind the Marina area and at the start of the long Avenida Diputacio, leading to Salou. It is a 5 - 10 minute walk from the main stretch of restaurants in the port area. This also ensures that it is only a ten minute walk from the tourist information office and the picturesque Parc del Pescador.
Some of the town centre's most enjoyable restaurants are less than five minutes walk from the hotel. These include the fondue restaurant La Cua Curta and the seafood restaurant Montserrat.
If you wish to venture to the old town of Cambrils, this is slightly further away. You can reach it by walking along the seafront and then heading up the river until you reach it on your left. However, this is about a 30 minute walk. Alternatively, you could hire one of the bikes available at the hotel (see above) or take a taxi.
The beach is visible from the balconies of the hotel and is a two minute walk away.

In a Nutshell:
Hotel Sol Port is a modern hotel offering a privileged position in the centre of Cambrils' most affluent area - the port. Its style is plain, with decoration and flourishes kept to a minimum. But standards of cleanliness and service are high. The services on offer, including a pool, sauna and fitness room, are likely to satisfy most of your needs. However, if you are bringing the kids, they may be enticed by the hotels with larger outdoor pools.
