If you’re looking for a family adventure that’s a little wilder than the average, step back in time to this resort modelled on a frontier town from the American Gold Rush.
It all makes sense once you realise that Gold River is part of the cowboy-themed ‘Far West’ zone of PortAventura Park, a theme park on the Costa Dorada, just an hour from Barcelona. Gold River guests get free unlimited entry to the park, plus various discounts for other attractions and water parks in the resort area. They can also pay to use the Hotel Caribe’s spa and wellness centre, which includes a heated indoor pool, sauna, steam baths, hot tub and gym.
Rooms at Gold River are all part of the experience, and are decked out in fun, prairie-chic décor – expect wooden-style floors and iron beds with quilted bedspreads. But despite the vintage feel, you’ll also find them well-equipped with plenty of mod cons.
Gold River is centred around Main Street, with the bars and restaurants (both buffet and à la carte) also named after Wild West hallmarks. There are river-style swimming pools, a playground and Instagram opportunities around every corner, so saddle up for a truly unforgettable holiday that you and the kids will talk about for years.
