Marina Playa Hotel & Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Before you read, please be aware that this review is mainly directed towards those seeking a relaxing, reasonably peaceful time around the pool, on their balcony and the restaurant areas during the day time. If so, this is no place for you.
We were part of a wedding group and had read great reviews about the Marina Playa, it's friendly staff, chill-out music, the setting, cleanliness and so on, so we decided to make it a bit of a holiday and added on a few extra days just before and after the wedding. Staff were certainly exceptionally friendly and helpful. Thank you Ana - you are a real gem! The management has taken on board previous comments re lack of sun beds and have brought out additional beds. Although they are slightly older ones, they are perfectly serviceable. All very good then you'd think, except this is where it all ends for some and here's the huge fly in the ointment. You will now be bombarded non-stop from 10.00 am to midnight with an electronic techno and/or house music mix of the type that is played at night in the Ibiza clubs and bars and at such a volume that it is, quite frankly, torturous. Please don't think we don't like background chill-out music and previous reviews talk of nice chill-out music by the pool. Well, this is certainly not the case unless you can chill out with mega decibels pounding in your ears. The DJ will have his brief and is pumping up the volume so much so that it's difficult to read a book and there is nowhere to escape the echoing repetitive sounds with its incessant rolling drum beat if you remain by the pool, restaurant or on your balcony with sea view. How the staff cope all day is beyond me. Such a pity to have to mark this otherwise perfect establishment down because it really could be a wonderful place for all. So, it's simple, go if you want constant pounding loud music by the pool. If not, then stay away.

Stayed: July 2014

Great location, nice furnishings and lovely staff... Nice rooms, good airconditioning, free wifi, nice pool area, walk across road to beach. Very reasonably priced, good quality bar/restaurant in same building.

Suitable for all types of holiday - we will definitely be returning

Room Tip: Some have much nicer balconies than others, so higher up on the front or left side

Well I may have to contradict myself from last years review saying Shame! As you can see from previous reviews the terrace and lounge area has been refurbished and looks amazing. I have just returned from a 3 day break and hoping to return next year to do the same.
Although it is still very child friendly I may not bring my children here on holiday as there is nothing for them to do i.e have a little play on the computer in the lounge or have a game of pool as there is nothing like that anymore, but I totally understand why, it would bring the look of the apartments down and how great it has turned into. Although I always go here on holiday I will say I am going to struggle a lot to find another place as good as this with my family.
We was meant to go to Ocean Club one day but who needs Ocean when you have here....We hired one of the Cabana Beds with a minimum spend of 60 euro, which is well worth it! Ok we spend 120 euro one day but that was food and drink for 3 people all day!!! This would have been at least 350 Euro at Ocean! The food from the restaurant downstairs is still fantastic, and great to see some of the old staff Paco and his niece and Sergio and Juan from our hotel, really lovely staff, as was the rest of the staff, all very warm and friendly even Kavia was so helpful and kind with smiles all round.
The only thing they may need is a few more none paying sun loungers around the pool, but overall nothing to complain about what so ever only good comments one outstanding place to stay this hotel should be voted 1st on Tripadvisor in my opinion....Looking forward to our return next year if the price is right, thanks again to all the lovely staff.

Room Tip: Perfect location for everything as fantastic hotel what more do you need.

The Marina Playa Hotel Apartments are an ideal location for San Antonio close enough to feel part of the vibe only a 10 minute walk but far enough out to get a good night’s sleep.
The pictures of the hotel on the website are a really good representation as they are nice and bright, clean and comfortable the bathroom could do with a little bit of modernization but hey with the sunset you get from the sea view rooms along with the music played by the resident DJ in the Aperture bar it’s a small price to pay. The staff at are Marina Playa are great nothing is too much trouble and always happy to help, Joseph is one the nicest bar men you will ever meet.

We only used the pool area the last day which is really nice only because we had a hired car to export the island, but if you want a sun bed you need to get up early.

Room Tip: Ask for a see veiw

Great hotel, fantastic amenities. Rooms were brilliant with everything you needed from comfy beds to hairdryer and air con. Lovely pool side beds with tasty cocktails and food available all day. Rooms cleaned every day and general areas spotless. Ideal location. Really enjoyed our stay. Staff on receptions are so friendly especially Quan(may have spelled that incorrectly). Great tunes during the day playing. Modern, clean, safe and the perfect getaway!

Room Tip: Having seen 3 of the rooms they are all perfect, seaview would be nice but we had a side view and it...

We had a great visit here, very comfortable apartments, lovely cocktails and great location. We really enjoyed the food too, especially the stonebaked pizzas and salads. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
We were in a party of 10, all sharing rooms between 2 or 3 of us and everyone was pleased with our choice. The only constructive feedback we could offer was to get more sunbeds, there just wasn't quite enough.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for Air Con up front!
