“A Great Family Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2011

Price - Very Acceptable for the service offered.

Hotel is well situated for Beach and Facilities, Hotel Pool small which is good for young children...

Room - cleaned well daily, fresh towels everyday all in all Very Good!

Service - Friendly staff, always willing to help no matter how small or large the request.

Food - Good variety of food and the buffet was constantly refilled drinks on the evening a little bit pricey...but ok.

All in all we enjoyed our stay at Stella Maris and would recommend to anyone.

Came back from Costa Brava last week, me and hubby spent a week at Stella Maris.
I was optimistic after reading some reviews and seeing that it's top rated 3* hotel in Blanes here. Well ... I've enjoyed 3* in Turkey more and 4* in Tunisia <they say in Africa it's actually a * less comparing to Europe> WAY MORE.
It's a basic hotel, we had a choice of street/pool view room. Our room was a bit small, a little run down maybe, but ok and clean. Our room was a twin and even though we pushed the beds together they moved and it was impossible to sleep together :/ My bed was also quite uncomfortable...The bathroom and balcony were a good size.
The swimming pool was great, especially that we mostly had it for ourselves ;)
There was not a lot of people in the hotel so there was no problem with loungers.
The food was ok, limited choice for a fussy eaters like us <a veggie & a muslim>, but we did expect that. Generally food is good apart from one thing- it's cold.
It's not kept on the hot plate or the hot plate is not on, so unless you come at the begining of the meal time when it just left the kitchen it's cooling down quickly ...
The hotel is close to the beautifull beach and Blanes is a pretty town, nice place to holiday :D
Would I recommend this hotel ??
Well, for the money we paid it was ok, nice staff, very helpfull.
If the food impoves it would be great value for money!

an absolute gem of a hotel, the staff are friendly, efficient and nothing is too much bother. They always greet you with a smile. Most speak english (amongst other languages) and nothing is too much of a problem for them, the receptionist gave us much helpful advice, including a train timetable for Barcelona, and helpful advice on how to get to Barcelona airport, not on aerobus, local transport is far cheaper.
The rooms are clean and comfortable, maybe a little basic, but as you will only probably going to sleep in them what more would you want, the bar is large with live music most nights, and there is a comfortable TV lounge with armchairs and setees, the dining room is always clean and tidy, and the food is always very good with lots of choice, of salads, meat and fish dishes, breakfast is not so good, youw will not get a full english, but there is more than the usual continetal breackfast, always something hot either eggs, fried, hard boiled or scrambelled, beans or sausage.
Wifi is free, but only in reception, bar or by the pool, will be what you are told. My room was on first floor above reception and dining room and internet access was good at all times.

We were extremely pleased with the quality of the food, provided in the dinner and breakfast buffet. Great variety and tastes good :). especially considering the price for the room. The hotel is very close to the sea - only 5 min walk. It is located far from the center, around 20 min walk, which was very peaceful and enjoyable. Blanes is a nice resort town, with a very beautiful coastline, where it's nice to take walks in the evening. The minuses were that the sea was very cold in June and there was a bit too many people at the beach.
The big flaw of the hotel, was that it was very noisy. Our windows were facing a road, so we could not fall asleep in the evening. Therefore ask for a room, not facing the street.

The hotel is located on one of the busiest streets, very noisy at night, we had a window facing the main road and couldn't sleep att all. Another minus- lack of air-con....
On a positive side- friendly and helpful staff

Booked this hotel after reading trip advisor views. It was exactly as we thought a lovely little hotel, thoroughly clean with a beautiful extremely well run restaurant with good food.
Not for Brits who like totally typical English food all the time. Brilliant for couples not a lot for families with small children. Rooms were a bit smaller than have been used to but totallly adequate. One minutes walk to a stunning promenade and beach. Had a great holiday as Blanes is charming.
