“Loved the Costa Galana”
Reviewed August 22, 2005

Luxury hotel in Mar del Plata. Maybe the most luxurious hotel in town, as I have been in many of the hotels of the city. Beachfront. The staff is friendly and they use to care of their guests as if they are royalty. Breakfast is a buffet one, and if you want food that is not over the counters, the chef arrange it to you at no surcharge. Sunday brunchs are spectacular. Rooms are modern, spacious, with safe, TV, radio/cd equipment. The spa, on the first floor, is great! Two jacuzzis, a climated outdoor pool, sauna, etc. A tip: visit the piano bar friday and/or saturday nights and be delighted with a girl that sings bossanova with an amazing voice. The only issue is that the hotel, luxurious from where you look, is located at the Playa Grande district, and the commercial district of Mar del Plata is located by the Bristol beach, so be prepared to a huge cab bill. But well... in a luxurious hotel, who cares about the taxi bills? Personally, I visited the hotel twice. A must go.

This hotel is very clean and well-managed. Nice relatively suburban location just across from the beach. The staff is very eager to help you find restaurants, shopping, and things to do. We felt very safe in the area. There is a nice shopping street about a block or two behind the hotel, with a large grocery store where you can stock up on fruit, deli provisions, groceries, and even wine.
Within a couple more blocks there is a fascinating old cemetery--safe to walk through--don't miss it! Walk a few more blocks and you're in a residential area. If you want to go into "downdown" just take a cab, it is going to cost you a couple dollars or less! One guy in our group asked at the hotel for an English-speaking cab driver and then asked the guy to drive him around and show him the sights! He got to see everything, including the sea lions (which we missed) and went to all the best shopping areas, and spent something like $35 for 5-6 hours of private tour.
You can also get wireless Internet access in your room for an extra $10 a day. There is a nice pool and exercise area as well. All in all, a very comfortable spot to call home base in Mar del Plata.
