ALEGRIA Maripins
Ranked #4 of 19 Hotels in Malgrat de Mar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We paid only £150 each for 8 days half board through hotels4u. This is the third hotel that we've stayed in in Malgrat and we think that it's the best so far. This is based on the facilities and the food.
The rooms all seem to be much the same i.e. fairly basic. The Maripins room was on a par with others in that you get twin beds with blankets rather than duvets and horrible sheets that slip off during the night. That's why I've down rated the sleep quality to average.
The staff were lovely and helpful especially the lady on the restaurant reception. A fault in the bathroom was fixed very quickly.
The position is great being right on the sea front and close to the train station for trips in to Barcelona. We were out and about most days and only stayed by the pool for 2 days but they were both disturbed by first the football teams and then a large group of students.
However, on the whole I would rate the Maripins as very good and wouldn't hesitate to return. I was told by another guest who has used this hotel for many years that it has been bought by a Russian company and that some of the rooms had been refurbished with the rest being done for next season. I don't know if this will result in the prices going up overall.

Room Tip: Ask for high room with pool view

We recently returned from a one week holiday at Maripins hotel. It was the best hotel we have stayed at for many a year. The receptionist Claudia was very helpful over retrieving our grandaughters bag that she left on the transfer coach. The "superior " room we were allocated was excellent with a fantastic bathroom. Food was plentiful and varied. It was a shame that for a few days we were overrun with young footballers in the pool area. Overall it was a great holiday, in fact we have booked again in September!!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a superior room, it is worth it.

We went as a hen group for a weekend in June. The staff were fantastic, and for the price we paid it was a fantastic deal. Drink choices were brilliant, but the food was not so good. I do not think that it helped as 3 of us was pregnant so the choices (esp breakfast) were not varied enough. I would suggest scrambled eggs in the morning and more meat choices in the evenings. One other annoying thing was the dogs that bark ALL night long if you are staying at the back of the hotel like we did.

Location was fantastic, staff could not do enough and it was clean and the reception area is also really lovely.

Not a bad hotel at all, but because of the food i would not venture back here myself.

Room Tip: Do not stay at the back of the hotel.

Visited Maripins at the beginning of June. My parents have been visiting for over 20 years but this was my first visit with my mother, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. The staff were excellent and really helpful, great position as it is on the front but set back so not too noisy. Pool area has been updated and is lovely. We stayed in the older block but when we asked to move because of noisy neighbours they put us into one of the new rooms which are beautiful with walk in double shower and trendy decor.
Food is not the best but we always found something we liked and the salad bar was good.
Already planning to go back next year.

This the fourth time we have been to the Hotel Maripins. As soon as we arrived the staff recognised us and welcomed us. We have always stayed on the fourth floor, when we arrived at our room, what a wonderful surprise, they have upgraded the room, included a wet room and flat screen TV. The room was superb. Once again the staff were excellent, Bar staff, Restaurant staff, Reception and of course Sylvia. This hotel is like going home.
Once again thank you

Just got back from a ten night stay at the Maripins on a half board basis. Had a lovely time hotel was lovely and clean food was very nice staff were really friendly and helpful, weather could have been a lot better but found a great British bar for the evenings 'The New Crown and Anchor' Chris and staff were friendly and welcoming. One word of advice do not book this holiday with teletext we booked and paid for two rooms with two adults per room when we arrived we found we were four adults sharing one room! The staff were brilliant and gave us another room though it did cost us 200 euro. Would recommend this hotel but be aware that Malgrat itself is very quiet and not a lot of entertainment compared to Lloret.

Room Tip: one half of the hotel has been modernised with wet rooms and duvets instead of blankets. would think...
