Beautiful Hotel is all i can say. The brazilian team stayed here for the fifa world cup. The beach is just a walk away from the entrance, walking distance from the Boardwalk Casino. The hotel has huge spacious conference rooms. Good food and excellent service.

This great hotel is in a terrific location - right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of "The Boardwalk" shoppes and casino. It has a very airy lobby, the rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed with a hairdryer, safe, refrigerator and modern showers. On the second floor is an internet station (all equipment worked). They do have a rooftop pool, but why go there when the beach is across the street. The breakfast buffet is fabulous with plenty of fresh fruits, an omelet station and freshly baked goods. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We did not eat dinner at the hotel. Instead we went to The Boardwalk plaza - well worth it. There are many restaurants there with great food and reasonable prices. I would stay there again.

Check in was a bit problematic as i had booked via an agent. The rooms are well appointed, they are clean, elegant and spacious enough. The beds are comfortable and linen very clean. Location is excellent - right opposite the beach and they even have a runner's card with a map for joggers. The bathroom windows open which is great as you have a nice breeze from the sea. This hotel exceeded expectations.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms

Ok hotel but not lavish. Rooms are spacious and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The traditional restaurant next to the hotel is worth a visit. It is the views if the bay though, the short walk to the beach and the beach run-route that I think are the real draws for this place.

Stayed in 4 hotels in the Protea group recently as member of a tour group. They were all superb, well appointed, elegant interior design, extremely comfortable beds and bedrooms, good sized showers with plenty of hot water. Impressed with Management, staff seem to be monitored which makes for consistent standards. Staff are polite and helpful; special mention must be made to Lloyd in Housekeeping at this hotel, who took the time and trouble to send my husband's glasses back after he left them behind! Big thank you!

Check in to the Marine Hotel was fast and efficient . The rooms are a nice size and try to pay the extra and get a sea facing room . There is a pool and there is a nice gym but the beach is the place to be . The breakfasts and dinners are superb and the view looks over the ocean . The hotel is close to the shopping centre and the boardwalk casino area .

A good hotel food very good rooms very good except the noise all night from the air con outside the room window kept me awake all night, we do not use air con in the room for the reason the noise it makes, so I know it was from the unit on the outside wall of hotel. If you stay there ask for room at front of hotel over looking sea, not over looking car Park. Shame because it is a very nice hotel if I had stayed longer than a one night I would have change rooms.

Room Tip: room at front of hotel facing the sea
