Checking in is a strange procedure which starts off with a small crappy room that s-cks and then turn into a money grab, if you give a little they give a little. The entertainment at the hotel...

3 friends and myself stayed here for 2 weeks from Jan.8th to 23rd. The hotel itself was nice, our room was clean, big and good enough for what we need. We are all 18 years old, so hard beds dont bother us. The pool was ok, a little cold but otherwise fine. The younger staff were awesome, we made friends...

Just got back and had read all the reviews about the San Marino. Much of what has been said is true, the food is very below average and in some cases not even worth eating. If you are the type of person who likes to spend alot of time in your hotel room then you will probably not like this...

We just spent from 13dec-20dec at the San Marino. We knew exactly what we were getting into - 3 Stars. We had a wonderful ocean view room (had to pay the up-grade though, but it was well worth it). The room was clean, the bed was hard (like all beds in Mexico) and everything worked. We even had a salamander...
