I was confused when I checked reviews for this hotel. There were those who thought it was a five star and those who thought it was a one star. I now know why there was such a difference in reviews.
We stayed at the Marenas Resort before and after a cruise. When we arrived for the first stay we were so happy with the suite we were in. It was so nice. The room was clean, nice appliances (including washer/dryer). There was a great view of the ocean (although we also were looking down on a small hotel's roof). There was lots of room. It was like an apartment. I loved it. (4 star stay).
Then we came back. We were given a room just two doors down from the other room. The door was loose on the hinges and a scrape across the paint. We we went in I was immediately aware of an odor. I tracked it to the sofa. Dirty and smelly. The carpet and tiles were worn and not swept well. The counters in kitchen and bath were not clean. (Two star stay). We asked to be moved.
We were given another room that was okay. Just okay. It was somewhere between the first two in quality. (Three star stay).
So, we experienced a wide range of experiences in this resort. I would recommend the hotel. Just be sure you are satisfied with your room. There are apparently lots of choices.
The facilities and staff were outstanding. Very helpful. I would rate them at a four to five star.
The beach was FANTASTIC! Clean, not crowded, nice chairs and umbrellas. The water was stunning.
