I'm writing this review while sat at the poolside at the Marina Bay View on the final day of our stay. We have had a very enjoyable holiday and would certainly recommend to others and stay again ourselves.

The Marina Bay View is one of the original 70's hotels in Puerto Rico but it has been recently renovated to a high standard. The place has a fresh, modern look. The comfortable rooms are painted white with grey stripes like a Scandinavian beach-house. They are very clean and well maintained

You enter the stylish reception area from the road at the top, and the rooms are terraced down the cliff-side to the pool below. There are lots of steps but there's a lift and plenty of ramps.

We had a poolside room which was great for being close to our toddler. Some people might prefer the privacy of the rooms higher up. All if the rooms have a fantastic view out over the marina and the bay. You can watch the boats coming and going and enjoy the breeze when it gets hot on the terrace.

All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We were made to feel very welcome. The lady in the shop greeted our little boy by name every day and made a great fuss of him giving him little treats, sweets and stickers.

Most of the guests this week seem to be Danish. It doesn't seem to be on the UK package tour list. The terrace isn't overcrowded and the atmosphere is very friendly yet respectful of privacy. Our little boy made friends with several others around the pool - language not an issue when you are two.

Puerto Rico is a small resort but we found it a very good base for our stay. Mogan is nearby with great restaurants around a pretty harbour. We also took the ferry to Anfi del Mar (15 mins). It's more upmarket with a very pretty beach and park.

Thanks Marina Bay View for a lovely stay. We'll be back.

Spent 5 nights here and apart from a lot of steps to climb cant fault the place
Lovely large balconies with plenty of sun, pleasant apartments, friendly staff and good location
An excellent choice in Puerto Rico

Room Tip: I was in D200 which had full sun from 8.00am until 4.00pm and decent sea view

We had 2 very nice weeks in a Delux appartement. Very nice view from the balcony, the only problem was that we did not have the sun until around 12 oclock.

It would also have been a very good think if the restaurant was open also at night.
But all in all 2 nice weeks with sun every day.

This is a beutiful resort. We have stayed both in a Deluxe apartment and in the Villa Serendipity. The Deluxe apartment had a big nice balcony with two sunbeds. The apartment was modern, beautiful and clean. The Villa Serendipity is located at the top of the hill of Puerto Rico with magnificent views over the sea and the harbour. The villa was fabulous! Very private and equipped with everything you could wish for. It had a gorgeous terrace/garden with a private pool and sun from the sunrise to the sunset. The staff was very friendly, enaged and professional. I can warmly recommend this hotel and would love to return.

Stayed here for a week in February. So satisfied! When we came we were not quite satisfied with our balcony. We'd got seaview, but not so much as we'd hoped for. We would get sun morningtime, but not in the afternoon. Because we both love to sit at the balcony in the afternoon, early evening, and we'd also noticed there were other options,- we decided to ask for another apartment. And that was no problem. If you're going to stay there, and I do recommend it; Ask for a deluxe apartment. Then you'll get a big balcony with private sunbeds. But if you prefer to do your sunbathing by the pool, the poolarea is clean, quiet, lots of sunbeds, - with a beautiful view as well. The housekeeping was really good. The staff in the reception so nice. By the way, Puerto Rico is a very touristic place.. But you can avoid these awful crowded places by staying at MB. You'll have the best rated restaurants in PR just in walking distance. Supermarket at the 1th floor. And if you enjoy hiking in the mountains like us, the entrance to all the tracks are just in the neighbourhood. I'll give MB my best recommanditions! I'd love to come back!
