We stayed at the Marina Suites last year however thought we would try the Marina Bayview as the prices for the Marina Suites seemed highly inflated this year!

Didn't get the best view however think we booked the last apartment over Easter so likely why! We also didn't book direct with the hotel as their site showed no availability however i managed to book with 'Vacasol' after trailing the net as i was keen to stay down at the marina. The apartment was as nice as the Marina Suites - we has Suite 09 at Marina suites and my mum had a standard apartment, not sure i would pay the extra now as apart from additional access from the bedroom to the balcony and having an extra TV the was very little difference in standard. The only downfall with the apartments was for us there wasn't much privacy from the bedroom and lounge given the layout and slatted sliding doors (you have to access the WC through the bedroom). We were also next to a flight of stairs outside and most mornings would be woken by the cleaner sweeping the steps! The beds weren't the best, very light and moved easily and had ill-fitting sheets which crumpled and were most uncomfortable.

The Marina Bayview was at full capacity and there was a couple of days we were unable to get sun beds which was very disappointing however saying that we did manage the rest of the time. I was also delighted we had chosen the Bayview over the Suites as each time we visited the suites (you can use their facilities also) the pool area was very very busy and wasn't at all the glorious place i remembered and enjoyed last year!

All in all i did enjoy our stay and the property was very attractive and kept clean! The kids were had welcome sweets on their pillow when we arrived and kinder eggs at Easter which was a nice touch.

Thought the breakfast was over priced for what you got, certainly for a family of 4 it is expensive! Only had lunch one day which was lovely and it would be a bonus if they served food in the evening.

The Marina Bayview is a lovely complex with a beautiful shallow pool and a great view.so not a hotel as such but tucked away in a good position overlooking the marina,
Its position is a lot higher than the pictures show and as said by previous people there are numerous steps down to main area, which didn’t worry us as we had a car. The rooms were softly decorated and relatively spacious with a suntrap balcony, however we found the room slightly impersonal with no solid doors but I guess some people would like that. It’s all done on the basis of a cruise ship and you have a cabin.
The pool bar was very good with real friendly people and great food the only drawback is it closes at 7pm so you would have to walk down those stairs to the main area for any dinner. There is a small supermarket on the 1st floor of the Bayview. This was a nice stay for us and in a way we were sorry the leave despite the expense of the room (192e a night) so I would recommend the Marina Bayview.
The only bad point I can think of is when paying 192e per night I think charging 4e per day for the use of your room safe and 1.5e per day for a pool towel was a bit hard.

Room Tip: Cabins in area B have a good view and are the perfect sun trap.The lower area of B if you want to be...

After staying at marina suites twice last year which was fantastic, we thought we would stay at marina bayview this time as they are apts not rooms and having an 8 yr old sometimes its nice not to have to be anywhere at any certain time.
The apts are lovely, clean and modern. The staff on reception are wonderful...as are the cleaners! Our daughter still went to mini club and mini disco (and was very pleased to see the lovely alexandra still there) at marina suites, which is a 5 min walk away. The pool is lovely with plenty of sunbeds and a fantastic view over the harbour! We have booked again for this year and also next(2015). Thanks marina bayview and roll on 8 weeks!!

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.

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.
