The staff at this hotel are all so friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean..Beds are hard but ask for a foam pad (made all the difference) The food was very good. The view was wonderful and a great location. Our room had a beautiful side view of the pier and the bay.

If you are looking for a hotel that is clean of mold and layers of grout, hiding mold, this is not the place for you. The bathrooms are disgusting. Besides the mold and dirt (which is impossible to clean), the shower door opens into the shower. Not to worry though, there will likely not be a lot of hot water,...

I hesitated booking here because of some of the reviews but the San Marino is not a bad place to stay. The food was very good, typical buffet, but you could always find something. Breakfast had made to order eggs & omelets, plus fresh fruit, pancakes etc. Just remember it is buffet...and gets tiresome after a few days. The advantage...

This older style hotel was nice, clean and friendly. The only real let down was dinner was hit and miss. Sometimes quite good and others only okay. But the way we were treated by everybody made up for that. We wanted to try out local establishments too, so those were the days we did. I do wish the WIFI worked...

The room was clean and when I opened the door I could see the beach just beyond the pools. The pools were clean and the area very tidy. The best part was a wonderful massage the can be accessed via...
