I have stayed here several times for business and pleasure. While the view is one of the best you'll find, the hotel is in need of re-modeling. The decor and furniture is outdated. The refrigerators and ironing baords are rusted (if you can get one-which I've had trouble with more than once). I've also had a room here before that... More

This hotel is very convenient to the docks where my husband and I were catching our scuba-diving boat every morning - and that was good enough for me. Floors of room were some kind of slick marble - which probably contributes to the cleanliness of the room but not much to safety when returning to the room from the marina,... More

I have been staying at the Marinaterra for many years. Although it is an older property, it has been upgraded. The staff is wonderful and remembers me every time I come. Parking has become somewhat inconvenient, but the marina view is picturesque and soothing. It can be noisy when there are a lot of kids in the pool area. The... More

Our checkin was speedy and the desk staff very helpful. The room (312) was spotless, quiet and wonderful! The beds were very comfortable (14" mattress on top of concrete base) with a fluffy white comforter and big fluffy pillows. There was AC but we were comfortable with the slider open and the ceiling fan on. there was a faint smell... More

This hotel is right at the marina at San Carlos, a small tourist community about a 10 minute drive outside of Guaymas, Sonora. The staff were extremely accomodating and helpful. We stayed there for 4 nights in late December. The room looked out over the marina, just steps away. The restauarant served wonderful food at a very reasonable price, with... More

Hubby stayed here 3 nights for a scuba diving trip with a group. He said the room was clean, comfortable, and reservation was honored with no problem. The view of the harbor is fabulous, hotel is very close to restaurants too.

This was our second trip to San Carlos, Mexico for scuba diving. For divers, the underwater scenery does not compare either to the Pacific or the Caribbean, but there are alot of octopus, which is a plus. Our bad experience at the Marinaterra began upon check-in. We arrived at the hotel at 5:30PM, waited on a long line, and upon... More
