    My wife and I have been going to the San Marino for the past 12 years and most of those years twice a year. We've never stayed anywhere else as the hotel has everything we need and or could want. The staff are professional and courteous, the food is good and the location is the best in town. We have... More

    I have stayed here quite a few times over the years. The location is spot on right at the pier however its also on the public beach so weekends and holidays it is full of locals and beggars. I have read some of the reviews and think its a bit harsh. There still is an adult pool which seems to... More

I have NEVER written a totally negative review, but this, "resort" is deserving in every way! this is a resort for locals with large families! we arrived to a hotel overrun with screaming children! they were in the pools, restaurant, and on the beach. there was...

    Having been a couple of times before - I felt comfortable going solo on a vacation. Previously they had reserved the ocean side pool for adults only. Otherwise it is a family friendly hotel which is great. This time however when i arrived there was no longer an adult only pool. Kids were everywhere, the pool areas were covered in... More

    This is a basic hotel in an excellent location. Nice sized rooms, excellent balcony with ocean views, and very nice staff, but that's about as good as it gets. Hotel needs updating badly.No hairdryers, ironing boards but no irons, no alarm clock, no tissues, only 2 bath towels to a room, no washcloths or hand towels. Bedding is very thin.... More

    Check in was a breeze, even early and received room change!!! I had very little expectations here. I was most pleasantly surprised: great adults pool, loungers and beach. There were maybe 30 kids in the whole resort. Tons of gay men and as married hetero ladies that is totally ok with me. Made lots of friends by the pool and... More

    My husband and I stayed here for one night while visiting my parents in PVR. We booked a standard room, all inclusive. Expedia stated it was a 3.5 star- I would say that was a stretch. Negatives: Hotel room was very dated for a 3.5 star. I was a bit concerned with not wearing shoes in the bathroom. No basic... More

    Check in was fast. Rooms were ok, it's worth the beach view. The only down side was Manuel who is a pushy activity director. He would not leave me nor my mom alone after we told him we were not interested in going to another's hotels orientation/sales pitch. We were afraid to go out the lobby and run into him... More
