We were very disappointed with the insufficient mediocre breakfast. In addition, the wifi didn't work on our room on the fourth floor. I tried talking with the secretary, but I never got an explanation or an alternative room. Wouldn't recommend coming here. Other then the location - pretty close to the beach - it doesn't worth the price.

I tend to agree that this property is a little wear worn, but in my humble opinion you can't beat it's location right on the bay of Huatulco and price. The rooms are clean and simple, the breakfast is a full hot breakfast with many options and the place does have it's charm, a rambling labyrinth of hallways, nooks and... More

This was our first time in Huatulco therefore we wanted to be closer to the city and walk around hence we chose to stay at Marina hotel but what a dissapointment. Reception staff were rude and even laughed at us when we were expressing our concerns. The hotel looks nothing like the pictures (they should really update them). The AC... More

The hotel looks nice in photos and the courtyard is picturesque. It's in a good location, and offers free, if spotty, WiFi. But the benefits end there. First of all, from 6:00 AM the parrots that live outside start screeching every 2 seconds nonstop. The blackout curtains are so thin that they allow light to pour in even in the... More

It is NOT a five star hotel but it's clean and affordable.. the staff is nice and will try to accommodate guests. You wont' pay extra for children in room and the free breakfast... More

We stayed here for October, by coincidence during the yearly triathlon. The hotel need maintenance and some of the rooms are better than other one. The breakfast, which was included in our rate, was very good thought. Below you will find pros & cons: PROS: - The location is very good, right on the marina and since we have a... More

Hotel Location: on marina is unbeatable for ease Amenities: Yes, there are balconies with every room, but no furniture. No coffee available before 7 am in restaurant- no reading light by bed. Air conditioner temperature cannot be adjusted in the room: it is either on or off. The hotel has the appearance of a resort that was just not quite... More

This hotel overlooks the marina where the cruise ships dock. My room (a suite) had a fantastic view of the marina and the harbor, with a balcony where my friends and I gathered each evening before dinner. The rooms themselves were clean, but quite basic ( I had a kitchenette, but not utensils -- the kitchen eventually supplied us with... More

I booked this place from europe over expedia but I would not do it again. We paid more than 50 Euro per night and you can have it much cheaper in La Crucecita. The plus is definitly the location in Santa Cruz, just a little walk around the Marina and you are at Santa Cruz beach, cam enjoy the sun,... More
