“Second visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

Last visited this hotel 10 years ago. Hasn't really changed but that's no bad thing. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Beds changed daily. Buffet style restaurant had reasonable variation. Full English breakfast available every other day. Railway line between the hotel and the clean, sandy beach does not distract you from the pleasant nature of the resort with it's large variety of restaurants, bars and shops. Barcelona Airport was only just over two hours away with one change. Rail fare was €4.80 single.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking pool and bar are noisier if there is an event on and they usually go on until abou...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Have just returned from a last minute 7 day break (booked 2 days before). Got a very good deal for me, my wife and 2 year old boy. It's excellent for what it is a 3*. Staff right from chambermaids through to receptionists were nothing but polite, friendly and efficient. My 2 year was running around saying 'ola' to all of them and they always stopped to say hello back - it made his day! Food is what you wold expect from a full board 3* star buffet (they are all much the same I have found) - I always found something to eat and couldn't complain. One thing I would say is if you get the rooms on the side of the hotel (to the right of the entrance) they are very small balconies where you could just about move if there were 2 of you - then again as we didn't book until last minute that's prob what you would get. I agree with other reviews about trying the Robin Hood pub again excellent service and decently priced - the owner even come out and done a balloon trick for my boy! 2 mins from the beach and shops. We will defo go back at some point - for what we paid cannot praise it enough.

Room Tip: Rooms on on side of hotel by entrance have very small balconies.

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

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

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

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

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.
