Casa Marina Hotel and Restaurant
Reviewed 9 April 2007

despite the charming exterior and premium location on Jacksonville Beach, the hotel has been poorly refurbished and is in dire need of updating. Drab paint colors, painfully old mattresses and poorly regulated water temperature were all unwelcome surprises for a pricey stay. Avoid at all costs room 215, which is directly beneath the Penthouse Bar that features live music until the early morning hours.

The Casa Marina is truly a hidden gem among the numerous seaside hotels along Jacksonville Beach. The restaurant, rooms, and service were first class. We throughly enjoyed our stay, and look forward to returning to the Casa Marina on our next trip to Florida.

The Casa Marina Hotel is a hidden gem in Jacksonville Beach. A small-scale hotel with only 24 rooms, it is oceanfront and has a wonderful restaurant. There is an outside verandah as well as a charming dining hall. The Penthouse Lounge is on the top floor with a patio overlooking the ocean. It is much classier than most of the other places out at the beach. Expect to pay a little more for a drink but the atmosphere is worth it. Great place for couples who want a nice place to stay and want to avoid the family-resort style vacation.

This very old hotel was just what we needed for a nice romantic weekend without the kids. We stayed the weekend of 03/17/06. We only live 30 min away but needed the retreat. We are beach bums and have talked about staying at this hotel and finally did it. We got an end suite with the ocean front window. The room had a very romantic feel and flair not too girly not too masculine. Perfect. The wood floors made for a cooler cleaner appeal. The set up reminded me of the titanic appeal. The sunday brunch was very costly for lite eaters but good. We wished there was a balcony instead of just a window but with all the windows open it was beautiful and breezy. Very clean and very comfortable. The furnishings were so comfortable that we wanted to take them with us. Room service couldnt get in so we didnt get cleaned up while we were out, but one call to the very helpful front desk and they were up there cleaning. Very helpful staff. Expensive relaxation, not for kids. We loved it so much that we looked into a wedding there, and they were way too expensive for an informal affair. So we will just stick with short visits, but will stay again.
