Marenas Beach Resort
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Sunny Isles Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 March 2014

This was our first stay at Marenas and my husband's first time to South Florida. We had both been working so hard and needed a relaxing vacation. Marenas was absolutely perfect! The service was great, everyone was very friendly and accommodating. I booked the One-bedroom Sunny Isles Suite over the phone and requested an ocean view. When we got there our room had been complimentary upgraded to an Ocean Front One-bedroom Suite on the 23rd floor. It was so nice, the view was incredible! The balcony wrapped around the corner of the building, the main part of it directly overlooked the beach (sunrise and moonrise view), but the side of it provided a view of the bay as well (sunset), just perfect. The room had three separate sliding doors to go out on the porch, one in the bedroom, and 2 in the living room, we kept them open at night so we could listen to the waves. The hotel has a great spot on the beach with chairs and towels provided, you can also order food and drinks right from your lounge chair. Our room was very clean and quiet, we never heard anyone else and the sliding doors blocked out all the sound. We made the 20 minute drive down A1A to South Beach twice. It was great to be in a quiet, less pricey, and less crowded area and if you do want to experience South Beach or Fort Lauderdale (25 min.) they're both just a short drive away. This was the most relaxing vacation we've ever had and we plan on coming back to Marenas.

Recently returned to the Marenas for the 6th year in a row. The location is perfect with a beautiful beach and great ocean view. Great shopping 5 minutes away and grocery store across the street. Service on the beach from Joe was exceptional and it's nice to know employees remember you from past visits. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and to our surprise a bottle of wine,chocolates and card were delivered to our room compliments of (Joe and Valter). We will be back...

This is my third stay at this gem of a hotel. The staff could not have been nicer. We received a warm greeting and many of the staff members remembered us. Our room was clean and the kitchen well appointed. Our view was spectacular and we so enjoyed having coffee on our terrace in the morning and cocktails in the evening. I have also stayed here with my husband and two sons (ages 12 and 13) in the past. The beach is steps from the pool and hot tub so I felt comfortable allowing our sons to go back and forth to the beach. I have eaten breakfast and dinner at Caracol both of which we're wonderful. Their churasco steaks, salmon coconut flan and shrimp ceviche was delicious. I can't wait to go back next year. Overall a wonderful hotel and experience.

This is an excellent hotel if you want to relax and chill. It is a good 20 mins from South Beach but that can also be a good thing because you can decide to go there for a night but come back to the piece and quiet. The rooms are great, fully equipped with washing machine/dryer, kitchen. Pool and beach are clean and good is excellent. Worth visiting!

I was a little worried by some of the previous reviews, but I took a chance! WOW! This was a great decision the service was top notch and the hotel is beautiful. Yes the room was small, but not unbearable. You are on the beach! And 5 minutes from the mall. Everyone treated us like family, it was amazing. My room was cleaned thoroughly every day. All staff was professional and knowledgeable. I will be back!

Visited this hotel for 3 nights with my sister. We stayed in 1 bedroom suite. Hotel website miss represent hotel a lot. Rooms a run down and need upgrading. Restaurant does not look or feel like it belong to 4 star/diamond hotel.
Worst part of all this on day of check out some one decided to pain a hallway in front or our room. 1 bedroom suite Literally it was a gay with a huge bucket of paint in front of my door since 9 am in morning. My a mention that I am pregnant on 6th month, smells bother me and I immediately start having a headache. Called to manager and solution was that I should move to a different room and leave my stuff in other room. Now imagine how Much inconvenience this this. On a day of check out when you supposed to pack and get ready to the rest of your travel.
I stay in 4 stars hotels and never ever had anything like this. If u need renovation make sure that guests are all check out block corridor and do what ever you need to do.
Bottom line please read all bad reviews because they all true and make a decision for your self do you really want to spent 400 plus a night for this.
Note to a manager I almost ended up in hospital because of this not only it caused me exiety and headache and smell of pain stayed this me for the rest of a day. And god knows how Mach damage this can affect my unborn with a stress ,smell ect
Your resort caused all this so please do me a favor and do not respond to this because just sorry is not acceptable for the level hotel this is.

All we can say is we are sorry about the issues you mention in your review. Unfortunately, there is never a good time to perform necessary maintenance, such as painting. Although, not the perfect solution, i am glad our staff allowed you to stay in another room away from the paint fumes, until you could depart the property.

Again, we apologize for your less than acceptable experience.

The Marenas resort is absolutely beautiful! Check in was a breeze! Our room and our view from the spacious balcony were both amazing!!!! The ocean was so beautiful, we spent a lot of time relaxing out on our balcony. We will definitely stay here again and I would definitely recommend staying here! Here are a few things to keep in mind: it is south Florida it will be busy so do not expect a quiet secluded beach, the pool area and the beach area are not huge, there are plenty of chairs on the beach but they are close together, (again, if you are expecting a quiet secluded beach then a resort in south Florida is not for you). The valet parking was very convenient and quick! There is a grocery store, a cvs pharmacy and a couple of strip malls with some restaurants and other stores within walking distance. Also, there are a ton of things to do within a short driving distance, the Aventura Mall, Gulfstream, the boardwalk on Hollywood beach, just to name a few. This is a great place and we will be back!
