“DO NOT STAY HERE-DATED, EXPENSIVE AND SMELLS OF SEWERS”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stayed here for 2 days only (thank God) in August, in between 2 wonderful weeks at other Italian Locations in really fabulous hotels. This really was the thorn amongst 2 roses. We arrived and the car park was absolutely full. We only ever book hotels with parking as while on holiday, do not need the stress of where to park, risk of getting parking fines etc. We were told to leave the keys for our right hand drive car, with no claims discount of 79% + named drivers and they would "park it" when and if a space came available. I don't think so! On walking into the reception, the hotel looked fine. On being given our room key we walked through dark, dated corridors on grubby carpets and with grubby walls, not so fine! We got to our "family room" which we were told was very sought after due to the size. It had 2 double/king size beds which left hardly any room to walk around. The bathroom was something out of the 70's with mould growing on the ceilings - lovely!! The TV was an ancient 14" box practically on the ceiling and unfortunately, we were not given any binoculars to be able to view. We had a small window which looked out straight into other rooms. No balcony for drying towels. The air conditioning system was so huge, bulky, old and inefficient, they may as well not have had it there. We went out to the pool which was ok. The beach set up with your own numbered sunbeds and umbrellas, along with a very nice, clean beach (although the sea in this area is not great - very murky and full of seaweed and crabs) were the only positives of this awful hotel. There were clear signs at the pool stating "no diving" in several languages, yet these were ignored primarily by locals and no member of staff felt the need to say anything allowing sunbathing guests to be constantly splashed by kids. When we got to our room that evening, there was a really bad smell of sewers. We complained and were told there was nothing that could be done until the next morning, when the maid was sent up to spray some air freshener. We again complained and asked to leave early and were told we could leave but still had to pay for the 2 days. They made a point that we had ONLY booked 2 days where we pointed out it may only be 2 days but it cost almost £300 a night. We were told by the old man behind reception that if we wanted luxury, we should have paid more and stayed at a 4 star hotel!!!!! Flippin cheek. The 2nd night, the smell was again foul and we really could not allow the kids to sleep in that room. The night porter, a very nice man unlike the day porter, offered a double inferior room with no external window (I can see why the family room was sought after as the double room was tiny), but at least the kids could sleep without the smell of drains. This really is an awful, smelly, grubby hotel which could do with SERIOUS redecoration. The bloke at reception's attitude has shown me something I have read about in other reviews but never experienced myself in Italy before, that it is all about money and no interest at all in customer relations, comfort or satisfaction. Do not stay here, there are better cheaper hotels in this lovely area.

We had a 3 night stay prior to joining a cruise from Venice and it was fine for what we wanted - 3 days relaxing and winding down from work.
I wouldn't have a longer stay here but that's probably more down to the resort itself, rather than the hotel.
We were fortunate to have been given a refurbished superior room, which was a little small but perfectly adequate, with modern decor and bathroom.
Unfortunately however, we didn't have a balcony and when we asked about a room with one, we were told that there wasn't one available until Saturday (we were leaving Friday) but that it would be in one of the older rooms and that ours was a much nicer room.
The hotel has a great location, on the beach, with allocated sunbeds and parasol.
It has a central resort position.
The breakfast was fine, buffet style (coffee / tea served at your table by the waiter) standard "continental breakfast" but with plenty of choice.
You could have lunch or dinner in the hotel at an extra charge but we choose to eat out, so can't comment on those meals.
The staff were helpful and friendly.
Would I stay there again? Probably yes, in a refurbished room for a short pre - cruise stay.

Room Tip: Get a refurbished room

This hotel is ideal for short stays as quite a few people seem to be doing, but if like us you are staying for a week or more it is worth upgrading to a superior room for 10 euros pp.there was no problem changing, we arrived on the Saturday given a room in the older part of the hotel.
and asked about a change that night after having a look at the book the hotel supplied. The superior rooms have nicer furniture and a lovely bathroom/shower , better that an open shower and mixed matched furniture (wardrobe doors did not close) in the first room. The staff were very friendly, the breakfasts had a very good choice, continental or cooked all buffet style.
We enjoyed or stay at the Marina Hotel and would go back again if we could have a superior room.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room.

We stayed four nights at the Marina between 9-13 july 13.
The location was fine only 10mins from connecting Bus Station back to Vience for our cruise.
We were given a small room in what Iwould describe as the "old" part of the hotel. Typical Italian standard room with double bed and wardrobe and small bathroom. A Bit of a shock to the system but we did not let it spoil our holiday.The main part of the hotel contained vastly more modern rooms some overlooking the pool and beach but were probably more expensive to stay there.
The best feature was the pool and free access to beach loungers and umbrellas. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and we found no problems getting an outside table every morning. Plenty of shops and restaurants in the streets leading from the back of the hotel and musical events in the many squares leading from these streets. Drinks and meals more expensive than at home but in saying that plenty of choice.
I would probably return to the Marina but would upgrade to a better standard of room. Quite easy to get a bus from the station (a 5 minute taxi ride) straight to either the Marco Polo Airport or further on to Piazza Roma for connection to Cruise Terminal via People Mover or indeed a water taxi into Vience inself.

Having been to Jesolo a couple of times before I understand the rooms are often simplistic and small, however I wasn't prepared for a long walk down a dark corridor to our minuscule, dated and shabby room. The bathroom was so small you could literally sit on the toilet and shower at the same time. Air con didn't really work very well.
Staff in the pool bar were very friendly and helpful, others less so.
Walls of swimming pool look in need of a good clean - caked in sun cream.
Plus points - good location for local shops and bars, easy to reach the beach, and close to buses to take you to venice.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a renovated room if you don't want a trip back in time.

The location and accommodations were wonderful. Not far from Venice. Right on the beach and a swimming area to boot. You receive your own umbrella and two chairs. The staff was helpful and accommodating.
