Just returned from a nine day stay at Mar Blau. We stayed here once before about 5 years ago as a "Plan B" when another arrangement fell through, and we noted many familiar faces amongst the staff from our previous visit, which is usually a good sign. Again we found the hotel clean and comfortable and the staff friendly, helpful and efficient, especially Jacqueline and Ava at reception. The food was again good and in plentiful supply, and we were impressed by the daily organised activities/entertainment available, particularly with regard to families with young kids. For those who cannot be without their daily internet fix, you can connect your device to the internal wi-fi for 6 euro's per week. We made good use of the pool and sun loungers, and our son enjoyed the internal kids play area and outside playground.The other guests were an interesting mix of nationalities, and it appears that the area has become increasingly popular with Russian holidaymakers since our last visit. There are supermarkets, bars and alternative restaurants within a short walk, the beach is not far, the old town within easy reach, and we walked to and from the station with our luggage without being excessively tired. Calella is an ideal base for other excursions such as Barcelona, Blanes, and the WaterWorld at Llanet de Mer. On both occasions we have stayed here, we found it relaxing and good value for money and with no significant negatives to report, and on that basis would certainly consider returning again in the future, and therefore have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Mar Blau to others. For the overall experience spanning both visits, this 3 star hotel certainly gets an extra star from us!
