Room was clean, nice, and quiet, and the staff was extremely helpful in booking our activities. Speaks English. Breakfast was delicious, with a different offering each day. They were flexible in breakfast time to accommodate our early departures.

Clean and comfortable with a nice shower. Only complaint was the Internet was only working in the lobby. Ping pong table a nice addition and free water fill up was great too! Friendly staff and daily clean towels and maid service.

While the room is basic, it's well done and has everything I need including a fridge, air conditioning and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was always good and included fruit, juice, coffee, eggs and potatoes. It was always...

I wish I could remember her name but there is one girl there who speaks English and she is so friendly and helpful! She was always happy to give advice, translate to taxi drivers or answer any questions. It was really hot the days we were there, almost 40c so the AC was very welcome and we always came back...

We recently stayed 5 nights and enjoyed our time at Mar Azul. The property is in a great location, very quiet and spotlessly clean. Enjoyed the open air garden / dining area and coffee station with hot water 24/7. A great choice and very comfortable stay.

Clean and quiet, room was a good size with small fridge, A/C and wifi worked great. Close to everything. Decent restaurant at the end of the block that serves American breakfast all day, which is good because the hotel breakfast is only between 7-8:30. Request a room that doesn't share a wall with the kitchen if you sleep later than...

Not exactly waterfront but within walking distance. Quiet place. Front desk recepcionist Claudia was very helpful in suggesting day trips and helping to secure ferry tickets all from the hotel so you don't have to worry about it yourself. Also free bottled drinking water is provided at the hotel's restaurant 24 hours. Saves you from having to buy lots of...

U really enjoyed the stay at this hotel. The people were nice and the breakfast was good and included. The room was clean too. The room has all basic necessities nothing fancy but that is all I ask for when I'm in paradise. I will book here on my next visit.
