Group of 31 spent a few days and everyone loved it. Really fantastic time at the pool with all our friends. This place has 2 pools and a beach. Great time watching all the birds and dolphins in the water. Rooms could use updating with a micro wave, but everything was clean and worked.

After finding this hotel on trip advisor we booked our room through kayak. We found an excellent deal and thought it was worth taking the chance. I have learned to pretty well trust the reviews on trip advisor. However I was concerned because of the almost to good to be true price we found. I had even called the hotel...

Went for a New Years Party in the ballroom. The party was very nice and the food was really good. For the most part service was good during the party. One female bartender was EXTREMELY rude and walked away from a line of waiting people because someone made her mad. She just closed the bar (only one open in the...

This is an amazing resort. Not to pretentious. Very friendly staff. Especially Daja the front desk clerk. The bedding was a little dated, but you cannot beat it for the price. We will be back. Thanks Marina Cove...

We booked Magnuson Hotel for a quick overnight Anniversary trip. When we arrived we were greeted with a very friendly staff. They quickly checked us in and we were given directions to our room. The room was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. During our stay we encountered a few issues, they were attended to quickly. We loved our stay...

Our car got broken into. The hotel basically said "That's your problem. It's a matter between you and the police". We asked for reimbursement or vouchers (for lunch), they said "no". They said there was nothing they could do. NOTHING? REALLY? They didn't seem to care that our car was broken into, and completely through thier hands up. Worst customer...

The Magnuson Hotel Marina Cove is a must go to, the grounds were well kept! Their web site does not show how beautiful this place is. There is a private beach, which makes for a prefect setting, but not much for swimming. The staff was very friendly and helpful! We will be back for sure, hopefully making this a yearly...
