This is a nice hotel BUT we have been 'treated' to deafeningly loud music from mid-afternoon all through the night from an outdoor event grounds right opposite...even in the farthest away rooms you cannot hold a conversation, let alone sleep..absolutely AWFUL!!!!!!!!

This hotel was great, and close to everything! 2 blocks away from the water, so an easy walk any time of the day! Has a nice breakfast, fresh fruit, bread, eggs, coffee and juice. Small pool to cool off if needed.

5 minutes from the airport and a 5 minute walk to the beach (where there are lots of sea lions!). Colourful, bright and spacious rooms (although I could not figure out how to turn on the ac or change channels on the TV! They have a pool for those hot days or after a tour. Breakfast is included. A lovely...

The rooms and bathroom are large, nice, and look brand new (even though they are not). Everything was in perfect shape and super clean. Everyone we came in contact with at the Blue Marlin was very friendly and helpful. The small pool and lounge chairs were great for relaxing outside the room. The included breakfast was filling and tasty. I...

The Blue Marlin is in a great location in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno; close to restaurants, scuba/snorkeling shops and the shore. It's clean, safe and secure. The breakfast is ok too. Overall it's just what I'm looking for in a place that I need to sleep and store my stuff while traveling. If you go here, please do not stay in...

Very clean hotel; friendly staff; terrific air conditioning. Rooms were large. Breakfast included and was very good - lots of fresh fruit. I wish there was better wifi and better lighting in the courtyard at night but excellent place to stay. There is a pool which we didn't use. Very centrally located - easy walk to the main streets.

Sun chairs available - it rained everyday we were there so we did not use them. I stayed her as part of...

Stayed only one night at the Blue Marlin at the end of our cruise. It was a very spacious, clean room and very well priced compared to others we looked at prior to choosing the BM. The breakfast was very good in the morning (although served a little later than we were used to). A small pitcher of orange juice...

Stayed here as part of a tour group for two nights. Located just outside the downtown, the small inn is perfectly located near shops, a handful of restaurants and the docks. The rooms are good sized, though a bit sparse, as ours had two twin beds, a simple desk, a tv and a few small decorations. The shower was strong,...

“Presidential suite if you were there for a longer period however it is next to the street, so perhaps a little more noise.”

“There are only 4 rooms on the second floor, the rest are first floor. So if you don't like first floor rooms, probably ask ahead of time.”
