Hotel Mas Mariassa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Pratdip
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 June 2014

What else one should look for after a hot day on the Spanish coast. It's an oasis in the mountains, clean and modern little hotel with only seven rooms, pleasant pool and seating areas, and great food. We didn't bother even considering going out for dinner and we loved it. A five course dinner (different every day) and excellent local wines are reasonably priced too. Service was excellent, and people were so friendly. Looking for excitements, restaurants to choose from, and places to go out? Look elsewhere. This place is to enjoy the nature, fresh air, peace and quiet... If you get there don't miss a natural spring a few miles up T322 and fill up your water bottles like many locals do. We loved the room #2.

Room Tip: the best rooms are #1 and #2 but other less expensive rooms are fine too.

Despite being located a bit off the beaten track, it only takes you about 15-20 minutes to reach Mas Mariassa from the AP-7 motorway, and the time is worth it.

This small hotel is nested in very peaceful surroundings outside the village Pratdip itself, and if you are looking for rest and quiet, this is the place.

The rooms are comfortably decorated, and if you want to stay for a few days, I would recommend a mini-suite, as it gives you a bit more space and confort.

We had two dinner meals at the hotel restaurant, and the food was absolutely top rate. Very good value for money also.

There is a spa that you can book for your private use, booking in adance. Very nice for spending some time in the evening, looking at the stars, with a nice cold glass of cava and some strawberries.

They also have a lounging área outside, with sofás and chill-out style furniture. Great for a night cap.

During daytime the location offers great options for hikes in the stunning mountains nearby (10-15 mins drive), and you can also drive over to the Priorat wine district in about half an hour. There you can visit exciting wineries, viticultural cooperatives for buying excellent wines, or having lunch in one of the many restaurants in the área.

Also the village itself, Pratdip, is worth a visit. If you travel with kids, it may be fun to do the "jincama" (finding hidden ítems throughout the village), locating all the different representations of the famous wild dogs (according the the myth) that gave the village this name.

Will definately return to Mas Mariassa. It is a great plae to go for a romantic week-end, or for a family celebration.

Room Tip: We had one of the mini-suites upstairs, fitted as a fantastic studio, with a great bathroom, a nice...

We stayed in this hotel for one night on our way to the south of Spain and really enjoyed the beautiful settings as well as the excellent dinner. The hotel is nicely designed and the rooms are quite spacey. The most rewarding experience has been the dinner. It is a fixed menu and every dish delighted us starting with the simple but surprising mise-en-bouche of an assortment of different salts with the premium olive oil coming from their property. The soup, the fish and the duck confit were as well excellent. The rooms are nice even if some details (mattress of medium quality, one of the bed-table lamp didn't work...) lowered our overall impression. The owners were really friendly and took time to talk with us about the region. All in all a very nice stopover!

Mas Mariassa is a small boutique hotel with charm comfort excellent food and great service. It is a bit off the track just out of Pratdip of the motorway south of Taragona but very secluded is part of the charm.

We had two night there so used the first afternoon to chill by the pool built on the old vineyard terraces (15 m long) looking across the valley. They have just completed an outdoor BBQ dining area which has charm and great views. Food was good. After a great night sleep from the fresh air and nothing but rural sounds. A change from city hotels. We set off for a day in the wonderful wine area and villages of the Priorat and Montsant. The hotel organized us a winery tour which was delightful. The next night we dined in the resturant which is part of the small hotel. The food was excellent.

Nice place - it is small (only 7 rooms I think) but it has a lot going for it. Great place to get away from the masses and experience a more rural pace and outlook.

We were traveling through Spain and chose this as a special two day treat. It cost between 50 and 30 per cent more than our other stops but unfortunately was the least value for money. The location and views are spectacular and the taster menu is exceptional. However it is not a 4 star rating as hotels go. There are very few rooms yet ours had a chipped toilet seat, stained (burned) towels, no toilet roll holder, a shower that was no more than a spray, a travel hair dryer that was past its best and would not stay up straight,no replenishment of shower gel and very noisy air conditioning. We were told that we could enjoy private use of the jacuzzi for 20 euro per hour (which we declined) but witnessed children and day visitors to the bar freely using the facilities! We experienced far superior accommodation for half the price. The staff were friendly enough. We will certainly not return or recommend this as a special retreat as the marketing suggests

We stayed at Mas Mariassa earlier this month. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were so polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food is excellent. They were creating a new Grill area for BBQ's whilst we were there. This will be a big asset. We will definitely return in the near future.

Such a chilled out place, food was unreal, 32e for five course meal that you might find in a top restaurant. Nice staff, two very sweet dogs and really wonderful pool.

Was a bit hard to find. Don't take the first exit for prat dip if coming from north. 6km of winding roads through mountains. Petrifying!

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
