We stayed at the Maripins All Inclusive for a week in May.
The weather was changeable a mixture of cloudy, rainy and sunny days.
We arrived and were informed that the two rooms we requested next to each other had been reserved, this was a very pleasant surprise after a long day. Thanks Claudia! The staff were all lovely and the hotel is spotless. My two children made some great friends aided by Glenn the Dutch entertainment Guy, he had loads of time for the kids around the pool and started off the singing on the karaoke well done Glenn!
The all inclusive was really worthwhile you had a wristband and a card and when you returned your glass they gave you your card back, the system worked well and my wife enjoyed the cocktails. The food was nice and one of the young chefs on the hot grill was really friendly and good fun. We went to Barcelona on the train and it was really easy and cost about 33 Euros for two adults two children. We ate out for my birthday one night at El Cortijo and had the Entrecot steak it was amazing. The bread starter was also really nice and the chef personally showed us how to add the garlic, oil and tomato it was a really nice touch, it's about 10 minutes away.
I would definately book this Hotel again it was a really nice trip.

Excellent staff. Claudia and Vicki outstanding, AS USUAL. The other members of staff were equally friendly and approachable. It is a very good indicator of the quality of an hotel, when the same staff greet you year-after-year (with a smile and a hug!!). The food is above average for a 3-star, and is plentiful. Sleep-quality was excellent. Room clean. Bedding and towels changed regularly. Convenient for all amenities in Malgrat.

The only slight drawback (for us) was the that the room had a wet-room rather than a bath: but I understand the economics of this rebuild. (Also I missed that awful external orange paint (lol). It made the Hotel difficult to miss!!!)

I heartily recommend The Maripins AGAIN.

We visited this hotel last year and had a good time so we thought we would give it another go this year.
We travelled as a family of 6 during the half term holiday and although it wasn't in the hottest part of the year the weather was ok. A little rain and a little overcast at points but when the sun was shining it was hot. Hot enough to get sunburnt!!
The hotel is clean and modern looking. We had different rooms last year but the rooms we had this time were of a much better quality with foam mattress and modern looking bathrooms.
The food was varied and there was plenty of choice. Not the highest of quality but certainly not poor quality either.
Breakfast consisted of salad, cold meats, cheeses, bread rolls and sliced bread (a toaster is available if you want toast), jams, chocolate spread, pastries, fried eggs, bacon, sausages, baked beans and tinned tomatoes. Fruit juices and hot drinks are available.
Dinner consisted of fish, pork, chicken, paella, salads, chips, rice, pasta dishes and there is a grill where freshly grilled fish or meat is cooked while you wait. Drinks are included with breakfast but not with dinner where you have to pay for water, soft and alcoholic drinks.
The swimming pool is fairly small but was not crowded.
The beach is literally across the road and is wide and long. The sea is emerald green and the temperature was bearable to go swimming in (just!!).
The sun beds are 5 euros per day and you can leave them whilst you go and get some refreshments.
The sand felt quite sharpe underfoot so sandals are advised.
We travelled to Barcelona by train which cost us €43 return for 6 people and took about an hour. The train service was fast, reliable and comfortable. The trains seemed to be quite spacious.
The seafront is lined with various restaurants, ice cream parlours, clothes and souvenir shops. The restaurants stay open very late.
I would definitely recommend the Ferguson Maripins as a family hotel and we will definitely come back.

The hotel is 50m from the beach and quite basic.You should not expect tea or coffee in the room or even a kettle for that matter. But..... If you came for a holiday there are hundreds of bodegas where you can enjoy that and a lot more at very reasonable prices. When we arrived, reception seemed a bit overwhelmed (it took them 20 min to check in a family before us) but, again, we came to relax. Breakfast buffet has everything you need, cold meats and cheeses plus full English, but the coffee is instant, from a machine. Dinner same, hot and cold, plenty of salads and usually 2 cooked meats, a couple of vegetarian dishes and fish.
Out and about, lots of choices. For those that don' t like pushy sellers, apiece of advice: stick some headphones in you ears and ignore them when it happens. But if you like to haggle, go for it and stand your ground-they down' like you walking out with nothing with so many choices around.
All in all, we loved it here. It is not Savoy, but we didn't pay Savoy prices.

Have just booked for early September 2014.... Would LOVE a sea view (normally book it via agent!) but not sure if I can request? Looks like such a beautiful location, I would be sorry to miss out. Any contact info be appriciated!!! Looking forward to a new experience in Spain, the view won't make or break it but would be a brilliant extra
