“Dont drink here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

as a regular to Benidorm I have had drinks over the years in all of its bars. However it has increased its prices I assume to pay for the renovations.
Last year a glass of sangria was 1.50 now 5 euros. This applies to all of its bars. This ridiculous price for drinks should not be encouraged and I for one will take my money to a bar that appreciates my regular custom.

Food awful
Rooms small & very dated
Location is perfect for beach & night life
Plenty places to eat near by
Bar in the hotel was good & happy hour cocktails were cheap
Needs upgrading to be four star as stated in the brochure

Just back from 3 days at the Marina. Went for St Patricks weekend. The hotel is beautiful. No complaints from me whatsoever. Check in was quick and easy, reception staff very helpful, rooms claened every day, spacious bathroom and smack bang in the middle of everything! Pubs, bars, shops beach all on your doorstep. Food hall was quiet....no queuing!! Pool area lovely with the Secret Garden Bar round the pool area and now a massive outdoor screen for live sports. Also the Secret Fountain Rooftop Bar.....amazing!
Put the Hotel Marina on your "to do" list!! You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The higher the better as noise from bar downstairs gets quite noisy

Found this hotel with an all you can eat buffet for 8.99€ and you get a bottle of wine or water with it.The food was good and plenty to choose from, go about 7 as they serve till 9 but you have to get a table so if there is a few you need the time to get one,hotel is right in the strip and lovely.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Rooms are large, clean and airy. Slightly outdated decor. Bathroom modern with huge bath, water always to a desired temperature. This hotel is right on the strip! You walk outside and are in the action. Perfect location. Right next to every bar, KFC and 5 minute walk to the beach! stayed here for 4 days and I wish I had stayed longer. Loved crawling back to the hotel every night. Hotel was busy and reception staff dealt with things quickly and efficiently. Would deffo recommend this hotel and would go back any day of the week. Sandy beach, plenty booze and great food! Who wouldn't love it???!

the location of this Hotel is Great right in the middle so its not a long walk whichever way you go. The secret Fountain open air bar is Perfect with really good prices As said in previous reviews its mostly occupied by Spanish Tourists I can hold a basic Conversation in Spanish & find them friendly. The foods hit & miss but this isnt a major concern. All in all this was my 2nd stay here & would Book again

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

Room Tip: Ask for a high room. y
