Checked in 9/19/2014 as part of a scuba-certification course and found a drab, out-dated facility that desperately needs a thorough updating... Stains on furniture cushions, chipped and cracked floor tiles, a marble sink & counter top that was nice at one time, perhaps, but no longer; lack of attention to housekeeping: dead crickets on the floor along with some previous...

I stayed here as part of my tour & found my room clean, VERY spacious & with beautiful views over the harbour. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We ate 3 meals at their restaurant & I really enjoyed each. A swim in the pool at the end of the day was a highlight.

We stayed at the Marinaterra Hotel before we began our dive trip on El Duque liveaboard. As a result of our dive trip, we received a special discount for our room that was excellent - less than $100 per night. The hotel is right on the marina, so it is a good location to start many activities in San Carlos.... More

The Marinaterra Hotel was most likely very nice when it first opened. However the property now looks old / dirty and is in need of a major renovations. Both rooms I stayed in had dirty linen on the bed (both spread and sheets). There was no hot water in the shower plus the water did not drain in the shower... More

We spent 2 nights here in March this year on our way to The Copper Canyon. The location of San Carlos is gorgeous - where the desert meets the sea with rocky hills surrounding. The hotel is on the harbour with a magnificent view out over the harbour to the inlet - beautiful at sunset. We had a marina view... More

I traveled with groups of 20 people to San Carlos for four years, and this was our hotel of choice. We traveled off season, and the staff were supportive of the group of young women and made sure we had options for kayaking, snorkeling, and going out on a sunset boat cruise.

We thought the hotel was perfect for our quick overnight stay. It had well equipped suites and was clean. We thought the staff was kind, courteous & helpful- the best part of this hotel! We were with a group on motorcycles & the staff was very accommodating. The walk down to the marina was beautiful, but would have loved to... More
