“Paradise at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

I stayed in this hotel with my partner last week and we really enjoyed our stay. The location was absolutely amazing with a great view of the hills in the surrounding area along with the marina & ocean directly in front of you. The pool was great & you get a lot of sun exposure around the pool area from 930am to nearly 7pm! It's a 10-15 minute walk to the main area of Puerto Rico which was perfectly fine. There are a few restaurants just down the steps beside the hotel which were all quite nice. Room service & staff were all excellent. I would advise anyone who likes to get their breakfast most mornings to get it included in the price prior to arrival as at €12 per person for a buffet breakfast can be quite steep when you can get it just down the road for €5. The room was perfect my only negative comment would be the bathrooms aren't the most private you'll come across.

Overall though loved the hotel and plan to stay again next year.

Room Tip: Get the all inclusive!

This hotel was every bit as good as the other reviews say! We where very happy with our choice of hotels. It must be the best hotel in all of Puerto Rico!

We traveled with a 6-year old boy, and we enjoyed the pool-area immensly. Good location with walking distance to almost everything.

Room Tip: Ask for a room by the pool if you are traveling with children.

Just returned from a 2 week stay in Amadores (first week) then Marina Bay-view 2nd week.
Go every year mixing the 2 weeks between both resorts having stayed previously at the Marina Suites, Terrezza Mar and the Morosol. (timeshare in Amadores each year on the first week)
I my opinion the Morosol is still head and shoulders over both the Marina Suites & and the Bay-view.
Booked a sea view Deluxe and as with every other year we like to make lunches up to keep costs down a bit. Noticed on the first night that we had ants upstairs coming in from the air conditioning unit, but also around sink unit, fridge and work tops. Sink unit ( sealant ) needs to be re-sealed. Also the bottom of the fridge is open to any bugs coming up through?
To be fair to the Bay-view, they sent someone round the next day to spray affected areas, but 3 days later they returned. No confidence in leaving bread, crisps, etc out on the work tops and kitchen table due to this. Again areas were sprayed, but never really got to grips with the issue. On our 2nd last night we were asked if we wanted to change our room!! D207. Decided to stay put as we had already made the decision not to each in the apartment. This issue is nothing to do with the cleanliness of the room or the grounds, which are all kept spotless. It's just something that needs to be addressed for a self catering apartment.
Last point, which not many people on here have made a comment on? The sunbeds? They may look ok, but they are the most uncomfortable beds ever! Everyone at the pool is having to use cushions from the apartment sofas just to be able to lie in some comfort.

Room Tip: Although the deluxe rooms have a great view, remember the steps which to get to our room from the ro...

We have just got back from our week in Marina Bayview and I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I've stayed in.
From the moment we arrived at reception we knew the place was going to be good. The reception staff were very smart and couldn't be more helpful, showing us on a map the best places to eat and shop.
Things got even better when we got to the room, it was amazing! Everything was bright and clean and when we went out to the balcony the view over the marina was breathtaking! We had a deluxe room that had sunbeds on the balcony, and was in the sun most of the day. The bedroom was upstairs, the beds were comfy and the shower was powerful and kept its temperature.
I'm not sure how full the hotel was but we had no problem getting a sun bed round the pool. The sunbeds were ok but there was a support bar that would dig in your back when laying down flat.
Can't comment on the restaurant as we didn't eat there.
There is a small supermarket on site that was well stocked and not too much more expensive than others.
Just a couple of negatives -
1) There are a lot of steps! We treated it as an exercise regime which meant we could eat/drink a bit more without feeling guilty!
2) €4 a day for the safe! This is a pet hate of mine. Most other hotels I've stayed in round the world don't charge, but it seems common in the Canary Islands. To be fair, it is clearly stated on the website.

This has been a fantastic holiday at a fantastic hotel, we highly recommend this place and we will be back!

Was really looking forward to coming here with my partner after checking the reviews and was not disappointed at all. Upgraded to a sea view room and the apartment was fantastic. Clean, spacious and very nicely decorated with a fantastic balcony with our own sunbeds and table and chairs. We didn't have any issue with the WiFi in our room. The kitchen is also above what is required. The hotel itself is also very clean and all staff were professional and happy to help in any way. The pool as well is great. A couple of points to feedback into the system.... The showers in the apartments are great, but we found that water would escape easily and leave puddles which are pretty dangerous on the marble floors - a shower curtain would help solve this problem. Also a bit disappointed that we had two single beds pushed together rather than a double. Apart from these two minor issues everything was great (over using the word great here but it is what it is!) Will recommend these apartments to friends and family and we hope to return in the future!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a sea view room, from what we seen the difference between sea view and higher quality roo...

Staff were very friendly and helpfull. Apartment very good with everything you needed. 5 Minute walk to the beach and some very nice restaurants, need to have good walking legs to get back up the steps from the beach if you go by the road it's a long walk.

I'm writing this review from a four poster double sunbed on a sun terrace at Marina Bayview. Our trip started on Saturday 3rd May. From the moment we arrived it was obviously a perfect choice with smart Reception staff wearing crisp, white uniforms to the Tatler-esque white sofas and a boat hanging from the ceiling.

We chose a Deluxe room, D206 which is more like a luxurious beach apartment than a hotel room. The linen is soft and white with super efficient air conditioning and very light, comfortable duvets. The beds are amazing, soft and I have never slept so well... There aren't any ply-like beds here! The rooms are serviced to a very high standard and there was wine waiting for us on arrival which was tasty. The kitchen area is well equipped and immaculate although without an oven. We didn't plan to cook anyway though.

The decor is beautiful with clean lines, the floor is marble or something similar! The shower is powerful and easily adjustable.. No extremes of temperature here!

The pool is immaculate and lovely, we have regularly been in to cool off... And the eco shower on the sun terrace is a welcome novelty.

The steps down to the road make for a good workout but won't suit those who can't or don't do much walking! The steps are level with handrails.

I definitely recommend this hotel. We will definitely return!
