Good food, fresh vegetables and fruits, awesome tomatoes, salmon (1st day). Nice rooms, we got one on roof top with terrace. Must see Barcelona, 'Tossa de mar', visit local vineyard - awesome sangria blanco.

Is is 10 min from the beautiful beach of Calella. But I don't recommend for families, because the hotel is full of group of young people... More

The hotel is situated towards the rear of the town about a 10 minute stroll down to the Old Town and the same to the beach. A good location despite all the 'club 18-30' type groups all around = noise into the small hours! Not great surroundings but the hotel itself is difficult to fault, it is very clean and... More

Spent five nights here in July 2013. Initial impressions were good - the hotel looked clean, tidy and well maintained on the outside. Check in was quick and efficient. Room quite small with 2 single beds and a wall mounted TV - single English language channel being BBC World News. Bathroom with shower over bath again quite small - door... More

Maybe an unlucky day, but er had to reactivate the room keycards twice during a 15 hour stay, plus they gave the room to someone else while we were still in bed... Pay attention to early breakfast and checkout.

We stayed here for 9 nights and returned to the uk today. It's just a ten minute walk to the beach and old town and has a lovely pool area. The rooms are clean and the staff very friendly. I would recommend staying here; we booked for bed and breakfast and there was lots of choice at breakfast! Lovely seating... More

Just returned from a nine day stay at Mar Blau. We stayed here once before about 5 years ago as a "Plan B" when another arrangement fell through, and we noted many familiar faces amongst the staff from our previous visit, which is usually a good sign. Again we found the hotel clean and comfortable and the staff friendly, helpful... More

A highly recommended hotel. Very clean throughout. The room was cleaned every day and the beds changed every other day. The food in the restaurant was excellent with plenty of choice for everyone and every nationality. The pool was very clean and staff were more than helpful. I would use this hotel again.
