We had 1 week holiday in Danubius Marina Hotel in Balatonfured first time.
We have very good experience with all the services. All inclusive service gives us opportunity to have very good food and drinks during whole day. It means whenever the kids wanted to eat or drink all the time available in the main buidling or in the garden. There are many opportunities for kids to play and enjoy the day.
The rooms and all the hotel areas are clean, all the waiters very helpfull and clean the table immediately.
we have been very satisfied with the stay so we come back again next year and recommend to our friends as well. Very good place for Families with kids.

We arrived at the hotel on the day of the opening, and the porter working at the barrier wished a friendly, kind and pleasantly pleasant rest for the duration of our stay! The staff at the reception are also kind and polite, I would like to highlight the head of the reception, Bálint and Mónika. Due to the new reporting obligation (VISA system), we did not spend more time at the reception than we thought. The staff was prepared. The hotel area is clean, the cleaning staff is friendly, attentive. Last but not least our room was tidy, clean and well equipped, although the mattress on the bed was too soft for us, it took a few days to get used to. We spent pleasant days at the Hotel, I recommend it to other guests!

Perfect service, great food, great selection. Plenty of fruit, everyone had the opportunity to choose the food they liked. An excellent private beach with plenty of sunbeds, also a swimming pool in the hotel with excellent water of 28 degrees. The staff is very kind and accommodating. Clean hotel, excellent mattresses.

We just returned from a weekend at the Marina Hotel in Balatonfured. The grounds were nice , the staff were very friendly and professional but the Hotel was terrible. The rooms were tiny , smaller than any other hotel on this strip and very run down. This is rated a 3 star hotel , well probably 1 star and that would only be because it has a private beach. We had to change from a room to a suite with a balcony as we could not breathe in the tiny room but the same low quality was found in the suite and at a much higher price. The towels ...... they changed them every day but they were rags, the type you would use to wash the floors. The food was not bad but very little variety and mostly what a child would like. Snacks are available but again hot dogs or junk food. This hotel is an all inclusive so the price you pay also includes all the terrible wine and beer you can drink. My husband and I came here hoping for a little peace and quietness however this hotel was 85% children who were not quiet. There was not any place where a child was not crying.
This hotel is part of the Danuibus Hotel chain which was why we went there having been at their other hotels around HUngary and never having a problem.The Marina Hotel unfortunetly is a noisy, run down ,old hotel that is certainly not worth the money. We booked on the internet and found out we could have paid less had we gone straight to the hotel and booked . This place is probaby good for families with small children but no one else. Bring ear plugs even then as it lies beside a noisy highway .

Hotel Marina used to be the premier hotel in Balatonfured... 20 years ago. Time has really taken a toll on this property, but the location is still fantastic. A major renovation could put this beauty back to its old glory.

I would stay again for the location...

We booked this hotel on the strength of a recommendation from a work colleague. We were travelling with friends from out of town and wanted something that could accomodate us all.

This hotel is simply awlful. The corridors look like prisons, while out double room provdied two single beds pushed up against the wall (more like a bench than a bed). After seeing the rooms, smelling what was clearly hash in the corridor, we checked out.

I do not understand why anyone would choose to stay here. Unless you are a teenager you will not enjoy this hotel. Probably the worst I have ever been too.

Öreg hotel a '80-as évekből, büdös volt és kosz a szobában, vizelet szag a Wc-ben. Klíma nem működött jól, nagyon meleg volt. Nem tudtunk ott aludni, eljöttünk, de a szoba árat ki kellett fizetnünk.
Very old hotel from the '80 years. It was smell in the room, and urine smell in the toilet. The room was very dirty.The air-conditioning didn't work well, it was very hot in the room. We couldn't sleep there, we came from this hotel, but we had to pay the room prices.

Once upon a time, the Hotel Marina Balatonfüred was a nice moderate hotel with great food and drink offer, superb location directly at the Balaton and very close to the charming city of Balatonfüred, promising you a great family holiday. The level of service and the rooms were never comparable to the international standard but the whole property gave you a kind of nostalgic feeling, bringing back the memories of the good old family holidays at Balaton, back in the 70s and 80s. But times and things are changing, unfortunately.

We just returned from a short 4 days holiday and were really disappointed by many ways.

We always choose a "Lido Apartment" due to the relative quiet location and the best view of the lake. The apartment we got (nr. 35.) was OK-ish but in a desperate need of a painting job and a careful overall cleaning. I was even not that happy to see spiders in the room. The towels and the sheets were worn-out with several stains, which is unacceptable in a hotel, I think. I would describe the beds as dormitory style, I had much more comfy beds in youth hostels.

The food is very good both in quantity and quality if you like old-fashioned Hungarian food as it is quite heavy, especially for dinner. There is a free flow of soft drinks, sodas, coffee, tea the whole day and beer, wines (well, Hungary is famous of its great wines but don't expect high quality ones here!) and local spirits in the evenings. I have the feeling they started to save on F&B as well, less variety, cheaper products than a few years ago. The hotel was on like 90% of its capacity so we had to run to catch a table, queue for the food, wait 20-30 minutes to get the table cleaned, not to mention, stains everywhere, not a pleasant atmosphere for enjoying a meal.

On the service and staff side, it's a hit or miss, depending on things like how full the hotel is, how the person you contact is feeling that day, etc., so overall, very inconsistent. I'm a native Hungarian speaker so communication is not a problem (well, they get sometimes rude) but if you don't speak Hungarian, it will be definitely harder to communicate, some members of the staff do speak basic German and very-very basic English and that's it.

I think the most negative part of the story is the price, you have to pay for this experience. We paid HUF 124.000 (ca. EUR 410) for four nights and this was their "Half penny" offer for a limited time and valid only in September when the weather in Hungary is always changing, mostly not suitable for swimming outside, in the lake. The high season price should be twice or three times of this, it's pretty high, considering the service you get for, I think.

So Hotel Marina Balatonfüred is not the worst place around but think and count twice before you book it. For Hungarian families it can be cheaper to fly to some Black sea or Mediterranean resort.

P.S.: Just a notice to the hotel management, if they read this opinion: We stay at Hotel Marina regularly, for like 7-8 years already, twice or three times a year, so we are able to compare the things.
