Apartments AR Muntanya Mar
Ranked #14 of 21 Hotels in Blanes
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Muntanya Mar apartments are great value. They sit on a an elevated site with great views of the sea. Obviously if you have an elevated view.. you have a hill to climb! It's pretty steep so not ideal for the unfit or people with reduced mobility. The apartments are spacious and very clean, I would say none has a poor view, but would request not one above reception and bar area, as it's probably quite noisy when it's full. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Not above reception

Just got back from a week in Blanes, at the Muntanya-Mar Apartments. They are a bit dated but everything was very clean. The cooking appliances are a bit on the short side, but we dont cook so it didnt matter. The staff are very friendly and cant do enough for you. Eating in here is fine if you are ok with a baguette or a microwave meal, otherwise it is great for snacks during the day.
Pool is fine, and the main town and beach are only 5 minutes away, and both are very clean.
WARNING, we took cash with us and found that all the Banks refuse to change money for you, there was only the Santander Bank that did, as there is no money exchange places you normally find in Spain, if there is we couldnt find one.
Overall a nice friendly place to stay.

Room Tip: The higher you are the better the view.

We stayed here for a week mid September. We thought for the price it was good, rooms are dated but big and bright. Towels not changed unless you pay 1 euro, room not cleaned during the week, however brush and mop in room. You do get 1 roll of toilet paper, clean sheets, which you need to fit yourdelf You do need a 120 deposit by cash or card number. Bar was ok, but not used much in the evenings, food was basic but fine and staff very friendly and helpful. Pool area was good, plenty of sun hours. Location very good.
We though blanes was a great resort, not a typical british led place, and we would go back.

We stayed between 4th and 11th of Sept 2013. Following a stressful, testing day (car parking issues, delayed flight, etc) we EVENTUALLY met our transfer coach. Bearing in mind Blanes is only 30 kilometers from the airport we endured a near 2 hour magical mystery tour of what must only be described as Spains answer to Beirut. The driver then "dumped" us 500 meters from the hotel. Not far? Well, it was virtually a VERTICAL 500m!!!. Not what we wanted or expected. Once we scaled the mountain (hill just doesn't do it justice!) and found the hotel we were informed of the 7 euro tax.....not a problem....AND the 120 euro deposit......BIG PROBLEM as we hadn't brought our cards and it meant dipping into our holiday spending money.
Day 2 things looked up. The staff were brilliant, the accommodation was great (if a little dated), the pool was spot on and the views were great. In short, the staff and hotel made it a very pleasant stay.
We would HIGHLY recommend a local cafe/bar called Veracuz. Again, very courteous and friendly. Buggys restaurant was great too. The one restaurant we visited twice was Santis which is located at the far end of the beach. The Monkfish was perfect AND cheap :) The paella was also great. All in all, a very pleasant break.

Room Tip: Please note, NO double beds and pushing the singles together brings it's own downsides. No kettl...

We've just got back from our holiday here and had a great time.These apartments are great value for money.The room we stayed in was dated but very clean,bedding was spotless.Great size room.Large living area.Fantastic views of the sea (this was from the ground floor).Poolside food was excellent.Very friendly and helpful staff which were always keen to help and made you feel very welcome. Sangaria was excellent too!The hill to the apartments were very steep but this is not a major problem. Execellent location situated ideally for the new and old town of Blanes.We would like to thank Francis,Mika and the rest of the staff for a friendly and welcoming stay.

This was great value for money - apartments are dated however they are spotless and very spacious with gorgeous sea view from all balconies however the location is at the top of a steep hill and the traffic is pretty busy so a bit tricky with kids and it is the only way to get to and from the main streets on Blanes. Blanes was a gorgeous place and these apartments are ideal for the price. Staff where very helpful and very helpful

Room Tip: ask for top floor :)
