“Amazing 100% recomendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Myself and my husband have recently returned from Marina Bayview on the 15th of october after a truly amazin Honeymoon!!!
Like many people do, we worried that the reviews where too good to be true and in all honesty it lived up to all our expectations!!
Even upon being there just one hour i could have written an outstanding review but thought it would be best to experience the place first. First of all,upon booking we asked for a balcony(more private than a terrace) and was allocated to room 209 D, this was a Delux appartment that we did not pay extra for and it was simply more than we could have imagined!
It was a two storey appartment and so immaculate throughout.
The views from bayview are magical morning and night. The room service was perfect in every way and stated i a previous review that the guest had to turn away the maid, so did we because there was nothing for her to do,due to the fact every thing was immaculate from the day before!
One or two comments that i couldnt understand was that there was a complaint that there wasnt enough shower gel(who ever goes on holiday and expects the hotel to provide)? and also the sun loungers were not comfortable!!! SILLY COMPLAINTS!!!
The gym was standard but my husband who hits the gym every day at home did not complain and infact was probably the only person in there during our stay :)
Even whilst he was in there a maintenance man came in painting :)
The only fault( not a problem to me) is that there is no access to the main road from the hotel apart from the 162 steps! My hubby has afear of hights and some days they got the better of him(until he had a stiff drink lol) but aside from that,we saw the has a work out to burn off all the amazing food!
Due to this i would not recomend this hotel for people with young children and less able.
Sayin this, we probably only saw 2 toddlers, this is in my oppinion an adult, relaxing holiday!
I cant say enough good things about this place and the restaurants close by. one of them is the TAJ palace, outstanding indian, and Wigwams cocktail bar.
One thing i ould say is shop outside the hotel if going self catering, it is alot cheaper at the local spar!!
All in all i will leave this rambling and say that it was that good we will be booking our next holiday there in the next few weeks for october 2014, thank you marina for a great stay.

I have stayed in Marina Bayview resort with my partner in October 2013. The apartment was really great, located in the quiet part of the resort. The view from the terrace was nice. Staff in the restaurant has been amazing and they made us feel welcome at all times. Hotel staff was very accommodating.
Only a couple of things annoyed me during the stay which was the WiFi internet and double bed. During my 6 night stay I was only able to connect three times to hotel's WiFi and the internet was very slow and it disconnected me after few minutes, it was annoying. Another down point was a double bed....it was made from two single beds placed next to each other and not even bolted together which resulted in waking up to the hole in the middle.

Otherwise, everything else went well and I would stay in this resort again.

We saw the Marina Bayview whilst it was being refurbished in 2012, with the Marina Suites having raised its prices considerably we decided to give it a go.
All i can say is money well spent, the view from the deluxe rooms in d block are fantastic. As is the small sunbathing area with a cooling ecoshower right on your doorstep.
The staff seem to be that little bit more friendly than the Marina suites and the rooms are more than spacious enough for a couple with cold ac in the bedrooms.

The pool area is small in comparison to other places however even on a busy day we still managed to get sun loungers always a big plus.
Yes there are steps to go to and from the hotel, however the climb is not really that bad we made it at least twice a day and never felt the need for a taxi.
The food at the restaurant during lunch times was good on the occasions we ate there although the menu is quite small. There are so many places to eat in Puerto Rico this should not put you off.
The only slight niggle we had was the intermitant operation of the wifi, in the deluxe suites its non existant however they do explain this to you on arrival. Sadly even when sat in reception the operation of said wifi is erratic to say the very least.

All in all an excellent stay and we will be back again next year, Thank You Marina Bayview !!!

Whilst in Puerto Rico try taking a trip on the afrikat from the marina its an excellent day out

Wow what can I say ? Fantastic holiday from the moment we arrived until the moment we left can't fault the place! Lovely staff, lovely place. The apartment was cleaned everyday, and the place was spotless! Short walk to the restaurants at the marina although the first one on the beech should be avoided as the man trying to get you to eat there was unbelievably rude , and made us feel really uncomfortable.

Just arrived home from staying at the marina bay view. The hotel is beautiful, very clean and tidy. Our room although very high up and lots of steps had an amazing view over looking the marina. The room was spotless with a lovely terrace with 2 sun lounges which got the sun all day. The staff were all really friendly and helpfull. The food at lunch time was really nice with happy hour twice a day. There are lots of lovely restaurants along the marina, just afford the first one on the beach (very rude man trying to get you to go in) ............There are lots of steps down to the marina but a taxi back was only 3€. Would defiantly recommend this hotel. And would stay here again. Had an amazing holiday.

This summer we spent our holidays in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria at Marina Bayview. The apartments are really comfortable, tidy and refurnished. The breakfast was amazing. While you can sit under the sun near the pool, you can enjoy freshly squeezed orange-juice, good coffee, fresh fruits, a big range of cold cuts, eggs etc. The hotel is located near the pier, up in the mountains. So you can spent the whole day relaxing at the pool with an amazing view to the sea. One day we spent on a catamaran trip with a jet-ski drive, fresh paella and snorkeling. We also rent a motor bike and spent the whole day into the mountains. The tips of Dara Torres Sarmiento, the guest relation manager were really great. She is so nice and friendly and we hope to see her again next year...

Room Tip: The apartments with view to the sea are the best.

lovely hotel, very clean, helpful staff booked a hire car through reception great price and service with no effort looking round the town to find the best deal. lunchtime pool side bar did excellent food ate there most days. only cons to mention was the WiFi didn't work down at our room as we were the furtherest away from reception possible would have been nice but not essential. and there were 214 steps from the road into town to our room so not the best if you are unfit. overall would definately stay here again.
