We stayed here as the starting point for El Camino de Santiago. The rooms were very modern and the amenities were excellent. The staff was excellent. They actually asked us when we would like to have breakfast. When we replied 7:30 am, actually a half hour earlier than usual, we were told "no es problema". The breakfast was much more... More

Room 302 Two twin beds with firm mattress and crisp linens. Furnishings are modern but plain and functional. Wifi worked great up until 10pm but not at all in the morning which is when I needed weather report. Hotel restaurant and bar closed Sunday evening which required this guest to go out in rain to find somewhere else open on... More

I took a taxi directly from Santiago to Saria and stayed at this great, clean, friendly hotel. I arrived on a Monday, so the Church was closed. They were able to give me a "passport" so I could start walking early the next morning. They also help me arrange baggage transfer service much cheaper than the company I had spoken... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Mar de Plata. Enjoyed the contemporary feel of the hotel and its cleanliness. Reason we didn't give it a 5: barking dog all night (not the fault of the hotel but definitely left a lasting impression) and the hotel staff wasn't over ally helpful friendly with directions/advice. It was a Sunday and the restaurant was... More

The hotel was perfect for our needs as we started the short Camino walk starting in Sarria. It's close to the bus stop and there is a quick connection to the walk path. What makes this exceptional is the helpful front desk. When I phoned to make inquiries The person spoke English well and assured me that everything could be... More

This is an austere but clean hotel with a great restaurant. too bad the WiFi didn't work or it would have 4 stars. Front desk very helpful. Bed was a little too hard. I'd stay there again. Free breakfast was incredible.

We flew into Santiago de Compostela and then took 2 busses (via Lugo) to arrive in Sarria in order to start our Camino the next morning. The Hotel Mar De Plata was a short walk from the bus station. Upon arrival, the staff was very helpful, recommending local restaurants, for us to get a great dinner. We had an immaculate... More

We arrived in Sarria after hearing from others on the Camino that lodging was getting difficult to find, due to the number of pilgrims on the last 5-6 days on the trail. We didn't want to walk extra miles in the event the albuergues were full so the receptionist went beyond the call of duty to give us a list... More

We stayed at the hotel on June 17, 2012. hotel is cold, looks like a formica barrack facility. yes it is clean. the one staff member we came in contact with was adamant about eating anywhere other than the hotel and initially refused to tell us of other places. when on vacation in europe we expect a bit of charm...
