In November 2014 I stayed for the 5th time in Casa Marina Reef/Beach. It is a nice resort with several swimming pools and jacuzzis at the ocean side. Several bars spread over the resort. The gardens are well maintained. Good rooms, a little outdated. The resort is at walking distance from the public beach and a lot of restaurants and... More

Rating this Resort as a 3.5 Star is a stretch! Like many reviewers have said...if you are expecting a hotel with 4 star amenities, this is not the place for you. Lower your expectations to 3 Star and you could be happy here. In our case, we were looking for a very last minute escape from the Toronto -20C January... More

There are very few umbrellas and not too many working loungers on the beach. Not all restaurants and bars are open as advertised. Staff are wonderful and are very obliging to kind to everyone. They are always happy. Security is great and I always feel very safe. There is only 1 that speaks English ,Juan Carlos and he is awesome... More

The beach wasn't very nice nor big, the locals thieve you at the other beach and make you very uncomfortable. The cold tubs were ok, (when cleaned) The first room was open to the local street very scary & unsecure. Moved to ocean view room with broken patio door. Not worth the money pay a little more and enjoy a... More

Yes, a very old outdated room but for the price we paid, if was just fine. Room was cleaned each day and again, the views were great.... More

The reviews prepared me for a so-so experience, but I thought this was just fine for the price. I would go again. I particularly liked the availability of shady spots to avoid baking in the sun. I found beach chairs available most of the time. The bubble tubs are nice. The sea can be rough. The food is nothing to... More

The resort was really good. Nice and relaxed atmosphere, the food was good as well and the place is clean. The whole staff was really friendly. Esmeralda was entertaining the kids. The thing that could improve is the WiFi.

Booked this hotel without any knowledge of the area or hotel. The price was very good, so I wasn't expecting a lot. I was impressed. Great property, views, beaches, sitting areas and right outside the front door a town. The room was clean, but dated. The food was fine, to expect too much at this price point isn't realistic. The...
