It is true what most of the other reviews say, that you get a sense of relaxation immediately when you arrive at the hotel. This is mostly due to the fact that there are practically no staff at all at the hotel. The reception is open few hours in the morning and few hours in the evening and of course... More

If you want to recharge the batteries and relax in a quiet and peaceful environment this is the hotel for you. Pool area was kept extremely clean and tidy and has a very relaxing shaded area with a lot of comfortable cushioned seating. Room good size and kept very clean, although we found the beds quite hard. Reasonable choice for... More

The food was very good, the breakfast wasn't laid out like other hotels but was still very good tasting. The evening meal(had... More

Where to start? If you want a hotel within a stone's throw of the Old or New Towns, C de M is not for you. If you want a hotel which is quiet, has excellent facilities, friendly and helpful staff, good food and high quality and clean accommodation, look no further. The hotel is a flat/downhill walk of 10-15 minutes... More

Like many reviewers on here, this was not my first visit to the Cerro de Marina and I enjoyed this trip just as much as previous ones (this was my third visit). It's possibly the most relaxing hotel I've ever stayed at. And this is why I keep going back! It's a small hotel which although is a little dated... More

We have just returned from another terrific stay at the Cerro de Marina, my friend and I were treated like old friends. The hotel is kept in pristine condition, the personal touches by the staff make the holiday, Carole and Paulo on reception made us really welcome and we were looked after like 5 star guests by Inga, Ang, Milena...

The hotel is at the top of the cerro grande (great hill). Don't let that you put you off. I am not good at hills; I could easily manage the walk down the hill and its is a cheap taxi ride back up the hill; the staff are wonderful. Pool and garden are wonderful to accommodate the sun worshipers and... More

This hotel is perfect if you want a cozy, peaceful, welcoming hotel without the frills. From the minute we arrived, the staff was so incredibly friendly and accommodating. All staff spoke fantastic English, addressed us by name, printed documents for us, and arranged for us to shower and access everything we needed on our last day since we were staying... More
