We booked this place because of the location , it's close proximity to the restaurants and bars . If you can get past the pigeons flying around the eating areas and off the tables then you'll be fine. This is probably the dirtiest hotel I've ever stayed at , the 3 stars in Cuba put this place to shame .... More

The lobby was comfortable and tastefully decorated There is a restaurant on the premises with indoor and outdoor seating where we had our included breakfast. Bacon and eggs, fruit, pastries and Cappuccino were among the choices. Our room was small but the bathroom was large and well appointed. It appeared that the fixtures and tile were new. There was a... More

I was at San Marino for five days in Sept. 2015. The standard room we had had a great view of the city and a great view of the bay. The rooms were clean, sparse and exactly what we expected. Maid service was excellent. We were AI since it was only $6 more each for the 5 days, and had... More

Ok, this is an mazing all inclusive hotel. We were there March 5-19, 2 couples and we all had a great time. Looking forward to our return next year probably around the same time. Bed was a little stiff but we asked for a foamy at the front desk and it solved the problem. The shower was nice and big... More

We just returned from a 4 night/5 day vacation at the San Marino Hotel. We had booked the hotel through air canada vacations and felt that we had got an amazing deal. Check-in: We arrived at 2pm and were told that the rooms wouldn't be ready until 3. The staff had a round of beers brought over for us at... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It wasn't terrible for us, but it wasn't a great stay either. We stayed here as part of an Air Canada Vacations all-included package and we had never been to Vallarta before, so we weren't sure what we were getting or whether we should upgrade the hotel or rooms more... but as the...

Let me put it this way: we will simply not ever go back nor recommend it to friends! We stayed there from April 18 to 23 and we had no idea it was the holidays time for the locals. We wanted to rest, to relax, so we got an all inclusive package with San Marino. That was our biggest mistake.... More

I wasn´t comfortable at this hotel, I didn´t really like it. They gave me a first floor room, the noisiest I have ever been at. I didn´t know it was vacation time in Mexico, the hotel was completely full of families with children. On one side of my room I had the pool, which is really small, but very loud.... More

My partner and I stayed at San Marino in the hopes to get good food with their all inclusive option. Well, the staff were great and helpful but it's not worth paying for all inclusive at this hotel. The food is sub standard and I was surprised that they would serve this at a four star hotel. The windows of... More
