I am nearing the end of a 6 week stay in the Hotel Marina so time for a review.
My first impression on entering the hotel was good. The reception staff are pleasant and always helpful. A special mention to Page who was a big help to me.
Our room was on the 14th floor as we had asked for a high room for the best views. The location of the hotel is just 2 blocks back from the Levante beach which you clearly see from our south facing balcony.
The room was adequate. Being clean with a large bathroom and bath plus a fridge and an antiquated Tv with 2 English Channels The furniture was a little tired looking but as I said, adequate. I understand the hotel is going through a refurbishment program as I write.
The food. At this point I should say that the hotel is geared primarily for the Spanish. At least 95% of the customers are Spanish which for us was a bonus. Consequently the food was typically Spanish which suited us. The food was served buffet style with a chef preparing "specials" to order. While not gourmet food there was always a good selection showing good value for money. The dining room staff were cheerful and quick to clear tables and keep fresh food coming to the buffet. In particular Aziz deserves a special mention (probably spelt wrong).
For regular customers free wine was offered.
The hotel had a daily program of events from keep fit to Spanish lessons to dancing lessons plus much more. In the evening there was dancing and often a show was put on late at night.
Overall I found this hotel excellent value for money and would recommend it if you, like me, prefer to stay in a "non-English" hotel when abroad
