I read several reviews before staying at the Marinaterra Hotel and my expectations were definitely not met. We stayed with other families who frequent the Marinaterra and they said that it was unusually bad this time around so hopefully it was just a fluke... As we arrived, we had to wait nearly an hour in the line at the lobby... More

We found this hotel through Expedia and thought it was a great deal. The hotel itself is slightly better than average, but the service is terrible. It's not that the employees are bad at what they do. My opinion is that it starts with bad management. I have traveled quite a bit through the USA and Mexico on both business... More

Ranking based upon price paid, not sure I would have been so enthusiastic had I paid $150+ a night. Nice room, great location in San Carlos, pool area nice. Beach area has potential, could have been better. They are redoing the restaurant, but breakfast in the temporary area was decent. Took the sunset cruise on the Hattie (?) trawler parked... More

The hotel has basic infrastructure; rooms are clean and wide, but without any luxury or ammenities. Food is not so good and some areas in the restaurant were in remodelation. Service in frontdesk is quite poor. But some guys as the waitress and taxi drivers are nice.

I stayed a the Marinaterra as part of a SCUBA trip arranged by a local dive shop. Initially I thought the place may have been a dive on or near a beach or marina. Well, its fairly close to a beach and a marina is right there, but this is not a dive. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The... More

Great room overlooking pool and marina. Group checking made it easy, but only one elevator caused a jam more than once. Food was definitely mediocre, with a box of an indoor windowless dining space. For an optional dinner here, the outdoor dining area was loud with club music, food choices minimal., and tables were not cleared or cleaned after previous... More

This is a FABULOUS place to stay in, during a visit to San Carlos. The facility is located in the center of town, and is very clean. Easily accessible from different attractions in the San Carlos area. This property is right on the marina, and that makes for some wonderful views. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with good views... More

Place scared me at first. I had a room at the far end of the hotel on the third floor. Two problems: 1) The room key did not work. Turns out the locking mechanism's battery was dead; 2) NO Internet service. Not a good first impression. The staff promptly moved me to a fifth floor room near the lobby (where... More

This hotel was included in a tour and a real surprise. The location and views were amazing. Rooms very well appointed, comfortable and upscale. We enjoyed great service in lobby and to our rooms. Meal was okay, food choices good but food cold and service not as would be expected in this type of hotel
