Reviewed April 9, 2004

I had mixed emotions while arriving at the Marina Dunes Resort due to reading the recent reviews posted on Trip Advisor AFTER already booking my trip based on all other ratings. I definitely wish now that I had read the reviews prior to making my reservation. This place is not a 4-star hotel, in fact the only thing about it that deserves a 4-star rating is the spectacular view of the ocean ~ which is absolutely beautiful. Other than that, don't waste your time or money. The rooms are ok - but certainly not deserving of a 4-star rating. The carpet was stained, the refrigerator made a dripping noise all night, the fireplace was too loud, the bed was totally uncomfortable and the walls are very thin, so you hear everything your neighbors are doing. The staff was friendly and attentive, yet they cannot do anything about the construction of the facility. Given the location, we would definitely return if (and when) they revamp the entire resort, otherwise we will not be going back.
