Pluses: Marriott so can use points, great view of the beach, walking distance to boardwalk, Cheap “homebase” to store luggage and do day/overnight trips elsewhere

Minuses: No tub bc handicap accessible room, which is fine but the drain from shower would not drain so now a pool of water around the toilet | very basic amenities | bring your own hair conditioner bc none in hotel | feels more like a nice Holiday Inn | bottled water overpriced | AC not working well so more like fan/humid rather than crisp, cool air | service is definitely more like 3 star | breakfast and dinner buffet just OK

My advice is stay here for an affordable night stay. Good view of the ocean but otherwise feels a bit removed. Use Uber which is readily available to leave the hotel and venture out in PE

Date of stay: April 2019

Protea Hotel Marine is quite a pleasant place to stay, right on Marine Drive along the Beachfront in Summerstrand and a stone's throw from the beach with excellent views. The service is top notch and the food is magnifique, with quite great restaurant, bar and lounge facilities with a viewing deck. In-house gym and swimming pool also available. Definitely a place to consider for any stay in PE.

Room tip: Rooms on the front end a sea-facing

I was lucky enough to get one of the 2 level rooms with a view over the Indian Ocean. The room, view, coffee making, bathrooms etc were all excellent. As I was on a business trip the lack of working WiFi was an issue. Breakfast was not included and is too expensive so we went out fir breakfast.
