“Excellent hotel - happy with our choice :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2008

After reading the reviews on this site i've chosen this hotel and I was very pleased with the choice. Thank you all for sharing your experience.

Excellent location, the most friendly receptions staff you can ask for, great food for breakfast and dinner (we opted for halfboard and i recomend you also to do the same)

Very nice room, room 425, with see view and double balcony, tv and airconditioning ... very nice view ... clean, confortable bed... what more can you ask from a room :)

The town is nice, not amazing, good for a relaxing holiday, no matter your age. There were teenagers in groups, families with children, older people...

I have stayed in the Maripins many times over the years, the food although catering for many nationalities,, is varied and very well presented and plenty of it. The Hotel is clean and well maintained, the bar is small and the pool area is a sun trap. The Hotel is situated very near to shops and Old Malgrat is well worth visiting. The Eureka Pub along with The Red Bull and The New Crown and Anchor all cater mainly for the British tourist and when you fancy something different from the Hotel catering they all serve good food and well priced. Also try out the boat trips that pick you up from the beach, the Monday market in Blanes is worth the trip. Overall the Maripins is a good holiday base and is very fairly priced, the staff are very attentive and friendly.

My partner and I have just returned from a weeks break at the Maripins in Malgrat de Mar over the Christmas week. A very enjoyable stay but some points to be aware of:

The good:

(1) The food was excellent - plenty of variety each day with the added feature of a grill chef on hand at dinner.
(2) The train station is literally 5 mins walk away for a quick ride into Blanes or Calella or indeed directly to Barceloa (6.50 euros return fare for a 1.25 hour journey).
(3) The bar at the hotel serves outrageously large measures!
(4) The staff could not be more helpful, polite and courteous.

The indifferent:

(1) This is the only hotel in Malgrat de Mar open in the winter - a very quiet place out of season
(2) Venue attracts the older person coming on coach trip holiday so not many younger people at the hotel
(3) Only BBC world as a TV channel in the room so if you are not into socialising then bring a book!

So, all in all we had a very nice relaxing week and if you simply use the hotel as a base then you cant go far wrong!

Hotel Maripins is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a clean, basic, friendly hotel to use as a base - spending your days & evenings out & about. The rooms vary in size (we went with 2 other couples and all 3 rooms were different) and so do the balcony views (1 couple had a terrible view of a construction site) but all rooms were cleaned & bedding/towels were changed daily. Maripins has a great location - only 5 minutes from the beach and there are nearby restaurants for your evening meal. The only downside to the hotel would be if you wanted to spend more time in the hotel during the days & evenings: the pool area is small & gets very overcrowded and the nightly entertainment is terrible! (we stayed 10 nights and didn't see one decent act!) These are small negative points though as they really don't matter if you are spending your days on the beach and going out in the evenings. Breakfast is also only served until about 9am so late-risers would miss it completely! Overall however we had a really enjoyable stay as the hotel is in a central location & spotlessly clean which were the main points we were looking for.

Myself and my partner have just returned from a 5 night stay in this hotel. It was lovely. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel. It's in a great location as it's in the centre of Malgrat, just across the road from the beach.

Rooms: The rooms were clean and air conditioned, but a bit on the small side, but not so small that it was a problem.

Staff: We found them to be very friendly and helpful.

Pool area: At first we didn't think there was enough room around the pool, but there is another section up some steps where there's always beds available. There was never a mad rush to get your towels out.

Beach: For many of the days we used the beach, but you do have to pay for beds and parasols at a cost of 4 euros each.

Food: The food was buffett style and was very nice - and this is coming from someone who doesn't usually like eating in hotels! - Each day you had a choice of meat & fish dishes, vegetables, salads, chips etc. There was something for everyone. The desserts weren't bad either.

Malgrat: It's a fairly quiet place, there's not many bars or restaurants. There are a lot of cafes, but not places where you can go for romantic meals.

All in all we had a great time.

  • Liked — It was right near the beach
  • Disliked — The lack of restaurants around the hotel
