“Great, family friendly and safe hotel”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Having just returned from a week at maripins with my 7 year old, wanted to say how lovely the hotel and staff were.The location was fantastic, central to town and the beach, and yet felt like it was away from it all too.Pool area clean and well maintained and bar staff were friendly and helpful.The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh laundry provided regularly. The shower was amazing!The area was lovely. As a lone parent I felt very safe here and would definitely come back. My only complaint would be the food in the hotel. It was pretty grim! Breakfast was lovely, but the evening meal was tasteless, often overcooked and unappetising. We ate out at a local cafe a couple of times though which was nice. The evening entertainment was hit and miss, but gave us a giggle, and the kids club seemed to be non existent, apart from a girl playing pool games for an hour in the afternoon!! Overall though I was very pleased with this holiday. A reasonably priced hotel in a great location.

Very good location opposite beach with tourist shops and restaurants a few metres walk away. Very clean and staff friendly. Rooms basic but serve purpose as generally it's purely a place to rest your head. Food plentiful, fresh and varied cooked to a very good standard. Plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit. Pool not very large but sufficient for size of hotel. No lifeguard present, but Ideally positioned to allow parents to supervise children from patio area. I would recommend for families and would return next year. Entertainment was better some nights than others, best shows during stay was flamenco dancers, Brazilian dancers, clown and parrot show, although souvenir photographs were a little expensive. Rail station local for trip to Barcelona along coast line, takes approximately one hour and ten Euros for a return tickets.

Myself and my wife have recently returned from a pleasing one week stay, staying on a full board basis.
Hotel clean and tidy, well located for shops, bars, beach and railway station if you fancy exploring. Pool area small but there are plenty of beds available, however not much room, but the beach is just across the road. Entertainment wise, something seems to be going on throughout the day, but we didn't bother just there to lay and fry! Usual shows on a night, but cannot comment, seen them at every hotel we went to when the Kids were young, so we went out every night.
Rooms are basic but adequate for what you need, basically somewhere to dump your cases and sleep, who needs more. Cleaned daily and towels changed every day. Our room was on the second floor in the main reception block, overlooking the pool area, across the main road onto the beach. You get a TV, air conditioning, safe(€20+€10 deposit for 1 wk), and hairdryer in the bathroom, which has the closest socket to a mirror, (wife would have preferred one in the bedroom near the mirror, luckily the cable on her tongs! was long enough to reach from the sockets on the headboard).
Meals were excellent plenty of choice, cooked breakfast on a morning with free water, juice, tea or coffee. Usual choice for afternoon and evening meals, soup, salad, various cooked meats, fish, with cakes, ice cream and fruit for dessert (drinks payable).
Staff friendly, efficient, and always happy to help.
Overall as stated a pleasant Hotel, would definitely recommend this Hotel and will stay here again sometime in the future.
(note; tourist tax payable at hotel was €7 for 2 adults for 7days).

We stayed for a week during August 2013 in this hotel on a half-board basis as a family with two children aged eight and six. The hotel we found to be excellent value with great entertainment - best we have ever known for a three-star - there is a nightly mini-disco, varied entertainment afterwards until about 22:30 and games around the pool during the day. This sort of presentation is ideally suited to younger families - during our stay there were plenty of other children for ours to make friends with. The restaurant is also good with a varied selection at breakfast and during the evening. The food from the buffet was always piping hot. There is no 'show cooking' but a chef cooks steaks etc at a grill while you wait. Our room was fairly basic with only a small tv high on the wall but was perfectly adequate and always clean. The room was fairly noisy due to other less than considerate guests in neighbouring rooms but you could not hear any noise from the evening entertainment at all. We would definitely visit again as we enjoyed the hotel and its close proxmity to the beach and we liked the resort itself, especially the old town.

The breakfast is amazing.
The cleaners cleaned our room and put fresh towels out everyday.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
There wasn't very many cocktail options, and for some really strange reason, they seem to put at least 10 spoons of sugar in the cocktails that were available.
It was just a place to sleep for us and occasional use of the pool.
The beach was really nice, and the train station was close by so we traveled to Barcelona a lot. The local restaurants are amazing and well recommended, it was an amazing overall first trip abroad for my children. It is a 3 star resort, but the beach is a 5 star. I cant complain definitely value for money. We stayed for one week, bed and breakfast £ 1200 for hotel and flights.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 128 a good sized family room, the walls are paper thin, it didn't bother us as...

We just came back from a wonderful vacation at Maripins Hotel, where we stayed 11 days. All was great, starting with the receptionists who were very professional and helpful. When we made the booking we asked for a top floor sea view room in the main building and so we received. Even though the room was basic, it was cleaned properly every day, the towels were changed daily and the sheets were also changed for 3 times during our stay. We had breakfast and dinner and, despite most comments before, the food was good and plentiful enough to satisfy any demand. Nevertheless, the staff from the bar (terrace) was absolutely great, especially the younger Tomas, Angel and Miguel Angel who are very friendly and thoughtful.
The only downside compared to previous years is the entertainment program, which should be significantly improved. I can say that in the past years both of the Brazilian and Flamenco show and also live performances were more successful and I think that it's a shame for the hotel to lose points because of this aspect.
Overall, it was a great vacation and we are eager to return in the next years.

We have just returned from another 2 week stay at the Maripins. We love this hotel and it was our 5th year running to stay here. The staff are very friendly, Anna in the dining room is lovely. My kids love Miguel in the bar as he is really friendly and super efficient at his job. Great value hotel, food is excellent, entertainment good. There is nothing we can fault and we will be back again next year!!
