“awfull food and service just awfull worst hotel ever”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

The location was poor not 5 mins from beach moved hotel within two hours it was that bad! Complained at desk as there was no choice, poor quality and cold food was told thats why there were microwaves in the dineing room so guests could heat it up then was offered to book a taxi to the supermarket!
Room faq burns and peeeling varnish would sum it up!! I know that you get what you paid for but ive stopped in cheaper thats been far supperior.

Room Tip: dont go if you do take cup a soup!

The hotel was ok, rooms spacious and well cleaned, not too far from beach, supermarket etc. But the food was awful, cold, unattractive and very unappetising. We were half board but ended up eating out. Also the pool area is disappointing and the pool looked like it was not filtering so a wise move not to take a dip.
Overall ok but avoid the food.

Room Tip: Don't do all inclusive - food is awful

Oh dear - I could recommend the food to any weight watchers club - the only decent thing to eat was the fruit but I was surprised they used cabbages to decorate the table!
I am used to european cuisine and can eat almost anything but this place was the epitome of bad food. I tucked into what I thought was a tuna salad to find that underneath all the gunk the tuna was grey - maybe it is a specia species! My daughter's boyfriend picked up what he thought was a burger until he flipped it over and found what looked like tentacles - but that's just Raffi! And a fly was having fun in the bowl of sweetcorn!! Getting a drink was a task in itself - you had to find a member of staff first which took up to 20 minutes at a time and they didn't speak English so would recommend you take a phrase book. UK holiday companies should not send us brits here - it isnt fair on the staff!!!!
The cleaners were friendly though and the rooms were nice some great balconies if you get one of the larger ones. Distance to shops and beach not too far and a big cheap supermarket just round the corner which is good coz we had to buy food there instead!!!

Room Tip: take spanish phrase book and extra money for food

On upon arrival, hotel seemed basic, but clean and tidy!!! Fair size rooms, ok for if u just going to sleep!!! Then we went into restaurant, well i'm not a fussy eater at all an dall review i've read I just thought maybe the people who said food was rubbish maybe were exaggerating, but NO they wasn't, you do not know what you are eating and nothing is hot, just luke warm slodge!!! we ended up eating out. Situated on steep hill, so no good for people with bad legs!! but within walking distance of bars and beach.... We were all inclusive so expected to have plenty to drink but in this place you have to play hunt the bar man to get served, we ended up living on bars snacks as only edible food there...all evening entertainment was for the spanish, staff hardly smiled and not friendly at all....So glad was only there for long weekend

At a glance, the hotel looks fine, it looks clean enough, the rooms are basic but ok if all you do is sleep there. But if you go all inclusive, be prepared to loose weight, the food in this place was disgusting, I think the only edible thing was the fruit, and lettuce. I was starving after every meal and got to a point where the curiosity of the culinary delights that they were going to punish us with, was the only thing that drove me to enter the restarante!
Most of our group survived on bar snacks (and they were the luck of the draw) The staff didnt crack a smile between them during our stay,and we had to hunt down one of them every time we wanted a drink,

I stayed at this hotel from 14.3.2011 to 17.3.2011. After reading previous reviews I was slightly dubious!!!
The hotel was alot better than i first anticipated. It isnt a five star but you get what you pay for.
The staff were fine, the rooms could do with a lick of paint but they were clean and comfortable.
The bathroom was spotless and the towels were changed on a daily basis.
The food in the hotel was pretty bad and we chose to eat out. Eating out is reasonably priced in the area and there is a good selection of restaurants only a short walk away.

The hotel is situated on a hill (not mount everest) but a hill!! This may not suit the less mobile but we found the hill no problem.

I enjoyed my stay at the marina sur and i would go back (but not eat in the hotel restaurant)
