Great location! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Many restraints to walk to. The spa was very relaxing and was really enjoyable as it looked over the ocean. Our room was basic but the view of the beach was spectacular! I was going to decide between this hotel and Sheraton and because of the location of the Sheraton costa Galman’s is hands down a better deal. I would reccomens this hotel to anyone staying in mar del plata .
