Originally booked an H TOP hotel but on reading the revies on trip advisor we changed to the Maripins and we were very pleased we did so - Location of hotel is excellent, very central but never noisy. Rooms are fine ,basic but clean and the balcony's are nice. A repair to a wardrobe was required but the was done quickly and efficiently.
Food on the whole was good ,breakfasts offered a great selection and good quality . Dinners more hit and miss ,mainly due to the grill section which was poor but there was always a good selection of other dishes. Entertainment is an area which could be improved and we tended to go out to other hotels for this notably the Raymar.
Yes the pool area is small but its the same in other hotels here. Malgrat isn't as flashy as newer resorts but we chose it as it offers easy access to both Barcelona and Girona and we were not disappointed . The trains were cheap, efficient clean and air conditioned ( if only I could say the same of our train network ) and the station is only a ten minute walk. We also went to Blanes which is a very nice resort further up the coast (again by train ). If you are on a budget and want a nice inexpensive hotel the I would recommend this.
If you are visiting Barcelona for the first time then I would recommend the combined train and touristic bus ticket which gets you both return train travel and a hop on hop off day pass on the touristic buses . It cost 25 euro(purchase at the train station ) but was good value. We expected Barcelona and Girona to be expensive for food and drink but were very pleasently surprised by prices both in the resort and the two cities. Overall a good break at a reasonable price in a nice hotel and would go back.
