Reviewed 23 October 2011

We booked Mas Mariassa based on the reviews and now fully understand why they have received such high praise. If we hadn't been on such a tight touring schedule, we, like so many others, would have stayed for longer! The owners are very welcoming and so friendly, making sure your stay with them is both comfortable and very relaxing. Our room was just as we like them, very modern and with everything you need. The evening meal was included in our package and was absolutely outstanding, with the chef (owner) accommodating my allergy to fish without any fuss as well as recommending a perfect bottle of wine to accompany our meal, based on the type of wines we favour. We had also booked the Spa Under the Stars to finish our evening, which was all set up for us with a bottle of bubbly and fresh strawberries. Absolutely perfect. For breakfast we had a selection of breads, cold meats and cheese, home grown Catalonian tomatoes (absolutely beautiful!) pastries and fruits as well as a choice of cooked eggs if you wished. We had such a lovely time and were sorry to leave, however, as it is only a short drive from Reus Airport, we shall be returning for a weekend break sometime soon. In our opinion all of the fabulous reviews for this place really are to be believed.

Not from us! We thoroughly enjoyed a 10-day stay, which can really gauge performance.

First of all: if you really care for staying in a huge building with twenty storey high halls and a key to room 3384, Mas Mariassa is not for you. We had room 3 in the first (and last) floor, out of the seven rooms the hotel, a rebuilt farmhouse, has.

The main features:

- A blend of modern, austere decoration and the old rustic building, but with all usual amenities.
- Large, spotlessly clean, well isolated rooms
- Extremely quiet and cool surroundings, in the hills close to the sea, perfect for a relaxed stay.
- However, twenty minutes away from the beach and all its fun and music.
- Within striking distance of such diverse attractions as: outstanding wine zones (I am a wine lover myself), Roman ruins in Tarragona, Gaudi's birthplace, Port Aventura (one of Europe's best fun parks), bird watching in the Ebre delta...
- Sauna and open-air jacuzzi (try it at a starry night with a bottle of Cava)
- Excellent cuisine with 5 course dinner and a well chosen wine list.

But all this would come to nothing without the service provided by Raquel & Francesc (the owners) and their staff. Real personalized care, friendly but not overdone, brimming with information and suggestions.

A gem tucked away in the hills.

I booked Mas Mariassa mainly based on reviews and we were not disappointed. We had 4 days to spend on Costa Dorada before heading to Barcelona and it was the highlight of the trip.
In the mountain but close enough to the beach, you get the best of both worlds: fresh air, quietness, amazing food and great service while you can spend the day on the beach.
We planned to eat two dinners but it was so good that we ate there 4 nights in a row with the "Market" dinner. Tasty, fresh, impeccable. Every night was a treat. You can't beat this in the coast.
Finally, the place is very well maintained. It's slick, clean and the view of the mountains breathtaking. Above all, rachel and François, the owners, are ver welcoming and will make sure you have a great stay.

I stayed at Mas Mariassa with my boyfriend for just two nights, and it was so hard to leave this beautiful hotel. We could have stayed there forever. Just about an hour and a half south of Barcelona, tucked away in the rolling hills off the coast, it's the perfect getaway. The building is a converted farmhouse surrounded by hazelnut and almond groves with no other houses in sight. The hotel is very elegant, blending natural wood and stone with subtle, clean, and modern touches, making it very cozy and stylish. Our room was big, open, and inviting. During the day it was filled with daylight and a nice breeze from the balcony (it was sunny everyday). If we weren't lounging around our room, we were reading or playing carro in the chill-out area, or exploring the surrounding area on foot or by bicycle. After trekking through the hills in the afternoon, there was nothing better than coming back to the hotel and relaxing our tired legs in the outdoor sauna and jacuzzi under the stars. The hotel owner and chef, Francesc, could not have been a better host. He was so friendly and welcoming. It was obvious that he cared about this hotel with all his heart and was happy to do anything to make the stay more enjoyable. The food was also incredible. Our 6 course dinner was unforgettable and possibly the best meal I have ever had. Our short stay at Mas Mariassa was nothing short of perfect. Whether you're looking for a tranquil and relaxing vacation, a gateway to the breathtaking outdoors (amazing hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing) that's still close to the ocean, or a culinary journey, Mas Mariassa is just what you're looking for.

We stayed at Mas Mariassa for one night on our return to the UK from Portugal. It is set in a beautiful location (really only accessible by car). It is an very old farmhouse which has been lovingly restored into a small boutique-style hotel about three years' ago - not without problems I believe - there were a few problems with warped floorboards and cracked floors and one of the rooms was not available. The beds were huge and very comfortable and the bathrooms clean and ultra modern. The outdoor area was stunning with 'chilling out' areas with shady tables and cushions scattered around and guests had access to a Finnish sauna and hot tub (you had to book as they only offer exclusive use). The inside of the hotel has been very carefully designed and there are some really lovely touches, especially with the use of clever lighting. The best part of our stay however was the food - we opted for the Gastronomique menu and WOW it was fantastic! We had approximately 8 courses which started with some bread with the amazing Siurana olive oil which can be bought in the Cooperativa in Pratdip which also serves as the Tourist Office, served with flavoured salts. This was followed by a superb carpaccio of cod with black olives, a very tasty bacon and egg tortilla, carrot soup, baked hake with roasted garlic oil, duck confit and finally a gorgeous Tiramisu. A lovely, lovely meal but VERY filling!
The breakfast was again excellent although we were still full from the night before so only had fruit!!

A fantastic hideaway - great rooms, great service, fantastic food. Close enough to get there easily, far enough to get away from it all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Ruined houses are landscape sadness but when they return to life spread to the environment.Mas Mariassa was forgotten and the hotel that now living in it is a privilege involved in rain fed Garriga, amongst almond and fig trees, olive trees and rocky terraces, the southern Catalonia landscape. Mas Mariassa are good neighbours of Baix Camp and work hard at showing off their land. We see it through the windows and enjoy it through the dish and the cup, as we're in a hotel with gastronomic own vegetable garden. The farmhouse of the XVIII, has been restored with respect to its essence, its old fashioned charm and its materials, with quality furniture and noble textures, achieving sober and natural environments. ... more   less
