“Great Place to stay - another fab holiday!!!”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

We have just returned from our 2nd stay this year at the Mar Azul Playa. It is a just a beautiful small complex. Nice bungalows - we stayed in a one bedroom - nice size with very comfortable beds (which is normally a problem in other places).

Complex is well maintained and lovely pool area with lots of sunbeds. Nice poolside bar serving good snack food etc, Happy hour each day is between 4 - 5. Only 2 min walk to beach and to restaurants and bars. Less than 5 mins walk to bus stop for buses into Puerto Del Carmen.

Laima Manager is just lovely - very friendly and helpful. Hopefully will be able to return later this year.

Nice little quiet hotel. The pool was so cold I didn't enter it once! This may have been as it was heated by the sun which wasn't at its strongest over Dec/Jan when I was there, but there was still always people using the sunbeds around it. The beach was extremely close as well and was a nice one, and it was a nice half hour walk to Puerto del Carmen, seems like a long way but is nice along the beach front and then into the town passing all the restaurants.

The hotel rooms themselves were very nice and cosy, with a nice living room and kitchen and balcony as well. The maid doesn't come everyday but does do a good job when she is there!

The bar in the site is reasonably priced and the people there are very friendly-even offering to bring food to your rooms!

Overall, very nice place to stay and was a very peaceful location.

Stayed here for 2 weeks last march. It is a lovely little place. Absolutely spotless clean. The bar is run by a lovely husband and wife and daughter team. They do a lovely breakfast for a very reasonably price. Liama, the receptionist could not have been any more helpful. From my first contact by email she went out of her way to sort out my reservation. Also the complex is very secure. Large steel gates that are locked when the bar closes. As an example I left my bedroom window open for the whole 2 weeks and I had no problems. The cleaning staff were brilliant. I never noticed them coming or going. I think they waited until I was out having breaking to swoop in and clean the apartment. Can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: They have wheelchair accessible rooms.

We have stayed here twice this year and as before the complex was excellent.Laima (the manager/ receptionist) is so helpful as are all the other staff.The complex is kept spotless and everyone is so friendly. I have just read the article from crap 68 and find it hard to believe they stayed at the same place,as we have had worse service in 4 and 5 star hotels.we will certainly return .

We stayed in for 1 week in Feb. The bungalows are very clean, cleaned daily. Laima, the manager, is very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for her. A nice little bar is on site, which serves meals.The area is flat and within a short distance of the sea and beach, ideal for older people and families.We have stayed in Matagorda many times and Mar Azul Playa is certainly on our list for future visits

Reviewed 26 January 2013

We have been to Matagorda many times and looked up this complex last time we were there although this is only a small complex and it was our first visit we were not disappointed
from the moment we arrived we were welcomed by everyone we met we found the receptionist Laima to be a very charming and helpful person as well as being very smart and pretty with it
Mar azul playa it is situated just behind the Sol Lanzorette and only a cock stride to the front
We had booked a pool view and we were not disappointed we found the bungalow catered well for our needs it had a large private patio around the pool there were plenty of Sun beds
The place was spotless and the cleaners and the maintenance guy keep it that way
With it only being small we soon made many new friends its seems once you stay there you just cannot wait to get back
We stayed in January and the only downside was the bedroom was very cold a small heater would have helped but that’s the only fault there was I did however learn that if I had asked they could have got me a heater
Although there was a snack bar in the complex it was often closed for seven so we never had a meal just drinks in happy hour
But there are so many places to eat within a short walk
We found the Picasso snack bar on the front well worth a visit with reasonable priced drinks and meals
We enjoyed our three week stay before we left we rebooked for later in the year

Room Tip: overlooking the Pool is best for me but if you want seclusin then that to is possible
