Nice and quiet hotel not so far from the sea. Good for families with fine animation program. Food is very good and staff is friendly and helpfull. This hotel is a good chioce if you prfere good standard of 3 star hotels. Only one thing was negative. Daily room cleaning was made very fast and not precious. Under the bed was mess, furniture was bit dusty and our bedclothes was not changed whole week. Towels ok, they was changed every day. In general recomended.

We stayed here in the summer of 2009 (August). It is a three star hotel, but a great one. Everything was like you would expect it to be. Clean rooms, good working airconditioning (which was silent too) and a nice swimming pool. The food was not great, but still really good for a three star hotel.

Just returned from 10 days at The Mar Blau, in our opinion it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in.We could not fault the food which was excellent and no we never had chips with everything.The staff are all very friendly.And the hotel very clean. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.Deserves more than 3 stars,We say 3 stars+

Room Tip: From room 525 you can see the sea, it over looks the pool and was fairly quiet

The amazing staff and squeaky clean rooms are just two factors that make the mar blau hotel one of the best holidays we've ever had. the ongoing activities eg kids club and water aerobics aswell as the the many amusments (pool table, air hockey etc) make this a perfect destination for family's. but the hotel also is in close reach of all of calella's amenities such as the beach, the shops and bars. all these things together make an amazing holiday !!!!

Just returned from a week at The Mar Blau, this Hotel is probably one of the best we have stayed in, for cleanliness, friendliness and entertainment for children and adults alike. the only complaint we had and that wasn't any fault of the Hotel was streams of people with towels heading for the sunbeds at 9 o'clock each morning leaving very few for the rest of us, but overall fantastic holiday Thank you

Room Tip: We asked for pool view and found it great

Good value hotel. The rooms were a little bit small but comfortable with balcony (only plastic glasses in the bathroom, nothing for drinking). The staff is helpful. It is located under mountains and 10 minute walk to the beach. The breakfast (plastic tea spoons) and dinner (one fork and knife for all, include sweets) buffet was simply, various and well stocked. The pool is small but clean. Wi-Fi connection was as in the old days (to send photo above 500 kB – impossible). Big problem for us were low cost hotels, nightclubs, discos and nightbars around the Mar Blau hotel. It seemed to me every night that I sleep on the football stadium. If you are 17, you do not need sleep, drinking liquors and yelling to the hoarseness is your style, so I can recommend local nightlife to you. Calella is the nice city with heritage. Dalmau Park and parade Manuel Puiguert are one hundred years old. There are walking routes around the sea and mountains Montenegro – very very nice. The train station is not far from the hotel – you can visit nice small villages by the sea (to the 25 km distance is the price of the one way ticket 1.2 Euro) or Barcelona, Blanes. And beaches - what do you like – sand, rocky, nudist. Bar El Musical is good. This bar ensures all, what you need. Summary – see photos.
