“Heavenly beauty”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We spent five days at Marina Bayview in the end of March. The hotel was very clean and beautifully furnished. The room was comfortable with a big balcony, and a fantastic view. Our cleaning-lady had a sunshine-smile, and the lady in the small shop was happily singing along the radio. The stay there was really relaxing and joyfull.

My wife and I spent a week at the Marina Bayview apartments during the second half of February.

There is an atmosphere of quality about the place. The apartments themselves are really nice. They are kept spotlessly clean. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and the style (white-painted walls, stainless steel and marble) is beautiful. Ours was one of the Select series. These are described in the promotional material as “located away from the swimming pool, in a peaceful and quiet area which offers wonderful sea views”.

The fact that they are located away from the pool, restaurant and bar areas was, in itself, not an issue for us at all, however, after a night out, having climbed the 160 steps from street/sea level to reception level, the extra 40 steps to our select apartment was a bit of a strain. An option would have been to take a taxi from sea level which would have been cheap and easy. In our case (we are no spring chickens) we opted to climb the steps every time. This initially proved daunting, however, in time, we got used to it and actually enjoyed the challenge. It was probably good for us. Don’t allow this particular consideration to put you off, unless you are in bad shape or unwell.

The sea views from these apartments (D series) are indeed spectacular. Even the view from the shower (as you shower, if you so wish) is fantastic. Apart from being really well fitted out, the bathroom did however present one minor issue for consideration. The door between the bathroom and the bedroom is louvered and lock-free. This reduces bathroom privacy quite significantly, if you know what I mean.

The pool area is very well laid out and the pool itself and also the pool furniture are high quality.

Puerto Rico is a lovely place for a holiday. In February it is fairly quiet and yet many of the restaurants and bars seemed to be doing well. The bar and restaurant at Marina Bayview closed at 21.00 while we were there, so we didn’t use it for evening meals. Quality of food and drink at restaurants adjacent to the apartments is very good.

A daily walk to Amadores and stepping it up to your apartment once or twice a day will keep you fit. Local busses are cheap and frequent and a boat trip to/from Mogan is good for a day out.

Check-out is at 12.00 and we availed of the courtesy room facility to shower and change before we left at 17.00. This is a useful (free) service.

I would recommend Marina Bayview Apartments. We liked them a lot.

Lovely terrace, beatiful view over the harbour. Good towels and robes at the deluxe suite. Nice make-over, however terrible smell from the toilet/shower-room. Weird layout with no door between sink and bedroom. We usually stay at Marina Suites, and will probably book there next year.

Great Hotel with great views over the marina and onto the ocean. Food was a bit of a let down with cooked breakfasts 'pre-cooked' and menu was never really altered but this may change during high season.but service good. Good budget hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the 'A' rows of rooms with a better views.

Just returned from our first stay in Marina Bayview. We can recommend the facilities in the room,
as well as a very friendly and helpfull staff. The view from the balcony is top class. If we had the possiblity having a sunshade on the balcony, we would rate this property with five stars.

Just returned from our third stay at this hotel, we love the views and the size of the apartment. This time we had a 2 floor apartment in the highest part of the hotel. It was a long walk up a lot of steps but it was a lovely room with a huge balcony with 2 sunbeds and the sun all day. The restaurant is now only open certain times which is a disappointment as when we have been previously you could have a snack throughout the day. Now once breakfast is over you can't have anything until the kitchen opens at one, we would previously have a snack around 11 if we had missed breakfast. We still think this hotel is very good and would go back
