The best part of the Marley is it's location on the beach. For almost $100USD/night, you get two bedrooms, small living area, one bathroom and kitchen. No dishwasher or small appliances, although you might be able to get a toaster by asking the front desk. The rooms are OK, fairly clean, but dated. As to be expected in these older... More

The Marley is immaculately clean, the staff is helpful to a fault, and the sun chairs are just meters from the water. The rooms are kept spotless, and the full kitchen is very nice for cooking in. The rooms are well appointed and have spacious living rooms for relaxing or entertaining, and the recently upgraded windows assure a nice, quiet... More

We just returned from a week at Motel Marley! It was just as we anticipated it! The management was excellent and the location was perfect. One of the cleanest places we've been- the sevice was perfect and the manager, Marta, speaks fluent nglish and Spanish. We had a wonderful time. Jim and Leona @ Gabshak@aol,com

Stayed there in mid Jan. at 75 peso, it's the best value with an ocean view, quite, spacious and clean. Even the bed is not as hard as I had expected. Kitchen is great for heating up left overs and hot water for tea. Be sure to reserve rooms facing the ocean. Everything is within walking or a short ride... More

Motel Marley is all you would want on a holiday if you are going to relax. It has a great swimming pool besides being right on the beach. Staff is the greatest! Very clean and well kept grounds. Close to everything and the buses if you want to get to different destinations.
