Apollo Beach, FL
Reviewed 8 January 2017

Visited San Carlos the first week of January. Ocean is too cold to swim & air temperature is a bit chilly to be out on the beach in a swimsuit. However, beautiful weather and good opportunity to see the area without huge crowds. Hotel MarinaTerra is undergoing renovations. We stayed 4 days. 4th and 5th floors have pounding, jackhammering, construction...

I stayed here two night. The room was large, with a full kitchen, and a separate bedroom. The balcony faced the pool with the marina just beyond that. Staff was friendly. The hotel is clean and well maintained. There are shops nearby. It was quiet during my stay. With renovations going on a few floors up. Beautiful setting for a...

Very nice place, great staff, good food and location. Would definitely stay there again! Rooms are very large and comfortable. Right on beautiful Sea of Cortez. Town of San Carlo more American than Mexican, but still has some charm.

The hotel is in a panoramic position right across from the small marina and the twin rock icon of San Carlos. The rooms are spacious and nice but in general the hotel needs a litte TLC to justify the high price.

Walking access to a several small markets, restaurants, and Marinaterra's private beach. Views on the Marina side are very nice, with Tetakawi in the background. We enjoyed the outdoor deck,...
