Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Marina Bayview at the beginning of June for 11 nights. There is a reason this hotel is rated number one, probably the best value for money hotel I have ever visited. After reading the reviews we were very excited as it seemed exactly what we wanted. We were not disappointment. Everything about this hotel is of a good standard.
To start, the rooms were spacious and immaculately clean, everything you could need was there. The terrace facing the pool and marina was a lovely space for some privacy but yet not too isolated.

The pool area is also immaculate very peaceful but not too quiet. Must say we loved the happy hour which was on at 12-1 and 4.30-5.30 every day and was well worth it. All of the staff we very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We decided to stay bed and breakfast and we were pleased with the decision. We found the restaurant area unique to other hotels as it faces straight onto the pool and offers views of the marina, I honestly couldn't think of a nicer place to enjoy breakfast. There was a good variety of hot food, cereals, pastries and fruit, which were rotated each day so not too repetitive. Each Friday the hotel also offers a BBQ with live music. Again this is definitely worth doing. It is buffet style but the quality does not suffer. There was loads on offer, all kinds of different meat, salads, potatoes and fresh desserts, was a nice change with being there 11 nights.

As a young couple the steps down to the resort were not an issue at all. We walked down and up once a day but did get a taxi back to the hotel on a night purely for convenience and they are relatively cheap (3-4 euros).

Immediately at the bottom of the stairs is a small area with a Supermarket, a decent Irish bar and some delicious restaurants. I would definitely recommend Cosi Come Sei (Italian), gorgeous food and great value for money, don’t let the small size put you off. To be honest most of the nearby restaurants are great value for money and excellent quality. Some other recommended restaurants would be la cantina, caballito de mar and Izamar which are all located on the same street, and are all worth trying. We found the restaurants down the marina area to be better quality than those at the commercial centre.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return and recommended the Marina Bayview, keep up the good work!

we have just returned from Marina Bayview and can honestly say it was the best apartment we have ever stayed in.

from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we didnt think a negative thought once.
Very helpful staff. Extremely clean and tidy. Nothing is too much trouble.

The apartment itself is by Puerto Rico Port - a short walk down the 150 steps where you can go on many different boat trips which are very reasonably priced. the shopping centre is just round the corner with lots of lovely restaurants and bars. and the bus station is just next to the water fountain where you can get a return bus ticket for approx 5 euros to the water park and zoo.

we are thinking about coming back in October and cannot wait!!

Me and my partner stated at the Marina Bayview last week and to say it was my first holiday in over 5 years I couldn't have asked for much more! The hotel was light and airy and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming and were efficient if ever we needed any help or questions answering. We stayed bed and breakfast and found that breakfast was very nice, lots of choice! The rooms were also very nice, although operated by a card key system that was at times very temperamental and we often had struggles getting in our apartment! We did once have a dead cockroach on our terrace that attracted some ants but as soon as we told the reception staff, this was sorted within 10 minutes! Overall, it was a wonderful hotel that is very reasonably priced and in a nice area, I will echo that there are a fair few steps but once you get used to that it is not a problem! It is very close to both the beach, a cluster of nice restaurants and the town centre is a 5 minute taxi ride!!!! Thank you to Marina Bayview for a wonderful stay!

We stayed at marina bayview hotel for 10 days at the end of June. Staff were all very friendly and happy to help if you wanted to book a taxi or an excursion. We couldn't have hoped for a better stay. This is the first hotel that we can truly say we would definitely come back again it was that perfect. On the last day of our holiday I got a lovely surprise from the staff, a chocolate cake and a card wishing me happy birthday. :-) thanks again to all the marina bayview staff. Keep up the good work,

WOW where to start. Stayed here as a couple (late 20's) for 10 nights end of June. Upgraded to a deluxe room (D208) which in my opinion was by far one of the best and we'll worth the 150 euro extra. Had our own sundowners on big balcony to sunbathe and watch the boats come in and out. Had the sun on it from morning till night. Kitchen and sofa area with TV downstairs, bed & bathroom upstairs. shower is amazing really powerful. Kept very clean cleaners do an excellent job and are all polite. Below us was a solarium area with leather 4 poster sunbeds which were fab! Also had a very refreshing eco shower. Reception staff are all friendly (Jose the best) lovely funny man, printed my boarding passes for me no trouble. Didn't eat in restaurant or go by pool so can't comment. Now.. The STAIRS lol! Yes they are a killer, but u soon get used to them and they keep u fit. Can get taxi from the centre for around 4 euro. The marina bayview was in my opinion by far the nicest, most modern and relaxing hotel in the area. Should be a 4 star not 3. Go to anfi beach on the ferry for 6euro also mogan is lovely. Can catch buses to maspalomas and del ingles for 2 euro ish. Would Deffo return to Marina bayview it was lovely. Very pretty. Keep up the good work. Miss it already.
