The Holiday with a Difference


While we know that touring is a very acceptable form of pleasure, we also know that some enjoy cycling with the comfort of a fixed base. The Fixed Based Holiday option blends the beauty of cycling with guaranteed comfort and enjoyment. To cycle alongside lagoons, enjoy historic architecture and capture the warmth of the sun adds comfort to the fact you are being cared for in very comfortable accommodation.


Many customers are already aware of the fantastic cycling opportunities in Spain and especially around the nature reserves and typically Spanish villages who boast about their relaxed hospitality. If you are a CTC member you can request the cycling routes for this area from them.


Hotel Marian Platja*** has 145 rooms, two lifts, a swimming pool, tennis courts, evening entertainment, money exchange and each room has a phone, fridge, hairdryer, satellite T.V. and balcony, as well as its own private toilet/shower. Sea view rooms are also available as a supplement for a fantastic view of the Bay of Rosas. All rooms have been renovated and WiFi is available in the Reception area. Many of our clients return and some even go twice in one year!


On arrival you will receive complimentary Sangria with a friendly Welcome Meeting from a member of the hotel staff. A detailed overview of how the Hotel Marian Platja operates is given during this time and there is the opportunity to ask questions about your stay. Some of the novel perks to the Hotel Marian include being able to swap your evening meal for a lunch if you are half board or getting your bottle of wine from the evening meal kept and named for you so that the rest can be enjoyed the following evening - that is of course unless you finish it! There is also a hotel bar open all sociable hours of the day at the front of the hotel alongside the swimming pool overlooking the Sea. The staff are excellent, offer a friendly service and will do everything they can to accommodate your requests.


We now offer Bed and Breakfast prices as well as half board. You can change at any time your evening meal for lunch time if you wish, just tell reception.


Bike Storage Facilities

The Hotel Marian Platja has two extremely secure cycling rooms (which can be seen by flicking through the image numbers at the top). The rooms are easily accessible but built into the hotel for security and are locked at all times. They also offer a compressor for quickly inflating bike tyres and bike washing facilities for the end of the day. The bike rooms are also alarmed from 21:00 to 07:00 however if you are particularly keen and want to make an early start (or even a late finish), you can arrange for the receptionist to come and let you in.


Santa Margarita - The Bay of Rosas in Spain is of particular interest as there are many interesting places within easy cycling distance. For non cyclists, the area has much to offer and it is therefore perfectly possible for an avid cyclist with a non cycling partner to both have an enjoyable time. Many customers are aware of the fantastic cycling opportunities in Spain especially around the nature reserves and typically Spanish villages boasting relaxing hospitality.


The cycling in this area is very diverse. For example, those who like to ride long distances can explore the regions of the Pyrenees Mountains or the fascinating nature reserves of Emporda where there are around 330 species of birds nesting in the area. For those who prefer short distances, Empuria Brava or Rosas is only a short ride safely along flat paths from the hotel. There is also the Bay of Canyelles only a little further afield, just beyond the far edge of the Bay of Rosas from the front of the hotel which offers a small but beautifully picturesque hidden turquoise bay. These are only a few of the many ideas for cycle routes in the area that you may well hear from the experienced Fixed Bike Express travellers!


There are some very good routes as well along quiet roads towards the French Border and through the National Park area of Cap de Creus towards Cadaques, Llanca, Portbou and the lower slopes of the Pyrenees. Your may wish to cycle south to L'Escala and through large flat areas abundant with fruit orchards. Alternatively you can see the sites inland by riding to Figueres and beyond to Banyoles and the surrounding volcanic Natural Park and then up to the Pyrenees.


As this package holiday is extremely popular, we would advise early booking.
