Just got back from a last minute break to Spain. Hotel is a 3 star and is a little dated. That said the staff were fantastic the hotel was clean the beds were made everyday and the towels changed.
Food was very good although sometimes just warm.
Its a bit of an odd location with a train track running in front of the beach but it certainly doesn`t spoil anything.Took the train and went to Barcelona and it was easy and convenient.
The entertainment was a bit drab.
On the whole a lovely late break and we will be going back.....Be nice if they offered an all inclusive option

Just returned from the Maripins, went on the recommendations of others from the year before. Check in was very smooth with nice staff. We were on the 6th floor over looking the car park but the hills in the distance was nice. Rooms are pretty spacious for 2 people with a decent bathroom. Only strange thing was the plug sockets are directly over the beds so had to move furniture so we could use our kettle but wasn't any hassle. The downfall for us at this hotel was the food. No decent choice and wasn't very warm although they do provide a microwave to re-heat which I didnt think was really ideal, we ate out more times towards mid week as we just couldnt bare the thought of trying to find something to eat. Not much choice for children at all. They do grilled fish or some form of meat which was ok. All the staff are great and very polite. Rooms cleaned to a good standard with fresh towels on a daily basis. The pool area is pretty small but there is a very nice area above the pool to catch those rays. The hotel is in a great location for the shops and pubs. Just a quick tip - try the Robin Hood pub for food its one of the best and has great entertainment.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Maripins. From The Reception Staff, Rooms, Food, Location Everything Was Perfect. I Would Definitely Return. Right Across The Road From The Beach We Had A seaview Room, Was Right Among The Shops, Was Quiet At Night So Slept Soundly, And All Transport ie - Trains, Buses Within Walking Distance

Room Tip: Excellent Base To Explore Costa Brava

We have just returned from a week and the location is excellent, beach just under the subway, shops as soon as you walk out the entrance. Restaurants, bars and nightlife all close by. Check in was complete in just a few minutes and we had a sea view and pool view room which was perfectly adequate and cleaned to a very good standard daily. The food choice was great with plenty for everyone and of good quality. No real queues and plenty of tables throughout. The pool area is small but then the beach is a minute away where we spent most of our time. The hotel throughout was very clean and all staff we had dealings with were excellent, friendly polite and helpful. The noise from adjoining rooms and and the corridors is quite noticeable, perhaps take the large key ring off the actual key to stop it banging against the doors so much. Would it also be possible to introduce electronic safes so you didn't need to keep a key with you at all times. As for hotel entertainment on the couple of nights we had a drink at the bar we will echo the views of others and say we were disappointed. Other hotels in the area had a variety of acts on when we were out.
All in all the hotel is very good value for money and we would definitely recomend it to anyone going to the area.
As for the beach it is steep and of the shale/broken shell type so not soft sand, we did not hire loungers on the beach we bought 2 lilos and a parasol in the shop next door for 17 euros, a far better option than 15 euros a day charge for 2 beds and parasol charged on the beach..
If you are planning a trip to Malgrat/Santa Susanna then this hotel is ideal and great value.

Please don't compare this hotel with the services and facilities that you would get in a 4 or 5 star establishment because that would not be fair. In my opinion as a 3 Star it is excellent. On the plus side it is right on the front of Malgrat de Mar, very close to the beach, restaurants, shops and clubs. You just walk out the front exit and everything that you want is there, however that means that at night times it is noisy, busy, and bustling right into the small hours. Simply put, you cant have your cake and eat it! If you want perfect peace, and green fields pick a hotel in the countryside. I have stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels that have far greater amenities but the Maripin's wins hands down when it comes to staff. Everyone including the receptionists, waiters, bar staff, cleaners, and management do their utmost to be friendly, polite, and helpful and it was good to know they were there to help whenever you had a question or query. An example of this was that one day I injured myself around the pool, and they advised me to get a taxi to go to the hospital, and offered to call a cab for me. I told them that I needed to go to the cash point as I was short of cash and they lent me 40 Euro's so that there was no delay in me getting treatment. NOW THATS WHAT I CALL CUSTOMER CARE! Also I was staying there with my wife and two grand children and everyone found a good variety of food, like chops and steak with veg for the adults, and burgers, egg and chips for the kids. There is also a poolside bar where you can get drinks, pizzas, and toasted sandwiches. Another real plus point is that everything is spotlessly clean, the reception area, the restaurant, pool area, toilets, and rooms are a credit to the staff. This Hotel really does try to deliver a complete hotel package and it obviously succeeds as some of the other guests had been coming there for years. I found the atmosphere there amongst the various guests (Germans, English, Spanish, and Dutch) was fantastic and everyone seemed to talk to one another, have a laugh, and enjoy their holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel tend to be quieter.
