This resort is a converted motel. The "suites" consist of two hotel rooms with a walk-through i.e. one room is a bedroom and the other serves as a kitchenette and living room. The suites are much smaller than any other place I have stayed. Rooms, furniture and décor are in good condition. The grounds are immaculate and Wi-Fi is free... More

I stayed in a double room with kitchenette and living room separate from the bedroom. The floor and entry doors appeared to be worn out. The door leading to the patio was stuck closed the entire visit even though maintenance checked it out and claimed it was working fine. We had to lug our pool and/or/ fishing gear around the...

This condo was created by converting an old motel to timeshare condos sometime in the 1980s. This has resulted in very unusual one-bedroom units. (We stayed in a "suite" which was created from two hotel rooms. There was a door between the two units, so there is some privacy for that room.) Our suite, which had a view of the... More

Marina Bay is an older resort that taken great effort in up keep with the exterior and grounds. We noted fairly new paint, awnings, and landscaping. It is very apparent they are trying. With that said about the only down side is the need to continue up grading the rooms (they are working on that also). PLEASE remove the dated,... More

I called on short notice trying to find a place on the water with a pool. They were very accommodating, and friendly over the phone. The room was exactly as explained over the phone, as were the other accommodations. Very clean, and we met a lot of nice ppl while staying here. Will stay again!!

I have looked forward to coming at least once every year since, and I'm now 42. Now, my kids look forward to "Marina Bay" with the same anticipation I do!! As... More

I took a chance & called the resort to see if they had any rooms available. We were lucky enough to book this at the last minute. It was definitely worth the price. We stayed one night in a king room that was clean & spacious. Didn't realize the check in time was 4 p.m. so we walked around the... More

My parents bought a timeshare here back in the 80's. My wife and I got one here five years ago. We now own five units. Three fixed weeks on the water and two prime floating weeks. I can't believe how cheap they are compared to other places. We have not done an exchange yet, but at some point I'm sure... More
