“Simply elegant yet friendly”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed here as the starting point for El Camino de Santiago. The rooms were very modern and the amenities were excellent. The staff was excellent. They actually asked us when we would like to have breakfast. When we replied 7:30 am, actually a half hour earlier than usual, we were told "no es problema". The breakfast was much more than bread and coffee, which is standard faire in España. We also ate at the hotel restaurant. We had the evening dinner fixed menu. It was excellent. Best food in Spain so far.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

Room 302
Two twin beds with firm mattress and crisp linens. Furnishings are modern but plain and functional. Wifi worked great up until 10pm but not at all in the morning which is when I needed weather report. Hotel restaurant and bar closed Sunday evening which required this guest to go out in rain to find somewhere else open on Sunday evening for dinner.

I paid the evening before as I was leaving early to walk the Camino. The front desk clerk walked me down the stairs to show me where to exit the garage the next morning as no one would be on duty at 6:45am when I needed to leave.

I took a taxi directly from Santiago to Saria and stayed at this great, clean, friendly hotel. I arrived on a Monday, so the Church was closed. They were able to give me a "passport" so I could start walking early the next morning. They also help me arrange baggage transfer service much cheaper than the company I had spoken with from home. I highly recommend the hotel and the luggage company if you don't want to carry your bag. I also found the staff VERY helpful and friendly. Luggage company I used:

TransJes, 686 808 183, Mochila Express, 627-435-778

Enjoyed our stay at the Mar de Plata. Enjoyed the contemporary feel of the hotel and its cleanliness. Reason we didn't give it a 5: barking dog all night (not the fault of the hotel but definitely left a lasting impression) and the hotel staff wasn't over ally helpful friendly with directions/advice. It was a Sunday and the restaurant was closed for dinner. only had breakfast ar the hotel and it was good value. We started our Camino in Sarria and the hotel was very close to the route. Overall: Excellent choice for Camino travellers.

The hotel was perfect for our needs as we started the short Camino walk starting in Sarria. It's close to the bus stop and there is a quick connection to the walk path. What makes this exceptional is the helpful front desk.
When I phoned to make inquiries The person spoke English well and assured me that everything could be handled there:
She provided the passports
She could arrange for luggage pick up.
She emailed a list of all hotels along the route and gave her thumbs up for a few when I asked for suggestions. They have been great.
She said the paths are well marked.
From all that help and verbal assurance one can arrange ones own trip without spending hundreds more by using a company. There is no need.
The luggage part has been perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.

This is an austere but clean hotel with a great restaurant. too bad the WiFi didn't work or it would have 4 stars. Front desk very helpful. Bed was a little too hard. I'd stay there again. Free breakfast was incredible.

We flew into Santiago de Compostela and then took 2 busses (via Lugo) to arrive in Sarria in order to start our Camino the next morning. The Hotel Mar De Plata was a short walk from the bus station. Upon arrival, the staff was very helpful, recommending local restaurants, for us to get a great dinner. We had an immaculate comfortable room and a great breakfast the next morning. Then we were off on the Camino. Highly recommended for those started the Camino in Sarria as we did.

Room Tip: Area around hotel is quiet so all rooms seem to be quiet also - no street noise
