Ok, this is an mazing all inclusive hotel. We were there March 5-19, 2 couples and we all had a great time. Looking forward to our return next year probably around the same time. Bed was a little stiff but we asked for a foamy at the front desk and it solved the problem. The shower was nice and big...

We just returned from a 4 night/5 day vacation at the San Marino Hotel. We had booked the hotel through air canada vacations and felt that we had got an amazing deal. Check-in: We arrived at 2pm and were told that the rooms wouldn't be ready until 3. The staff had a round of beers brought over for us at...

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It wasn't terrible for us, but it wasn't a great stay either. We stayed here as part of an Air Canada Vacations all-included package and we had never been to Vallarta before, so we weren't sure what we were getting or whether we should upgrade the hotel or rooms more... but as the...

Let me put it this way: we will simply not ever go back nor recommend it to friends! We stayed there from April 18 to 23 and we had no idea it was the holidays time for the locals. We wanted to rest, to relax, so we got an all inclusive package with San Marino. That was our biggest mistake....

I wasn´t comfortable at this hotel, I didn´t really like it. They gave me a first floor room, the noisiest I have ever been at. I didn´t know it was vacation time in Mexico, the hotel was completely full of families with children. On one side of my room I had the pool, which is really small, but very loud....

My partner and I stayed at San Marino in the hopes to get good food with their all inclusive option. Well, the staff were great and helpful but it's not worth paying for all inclusive at this hotel. The food is sub standard and I was surprised that they would serve this at a four star hotel. The windows of...

We have been staying at the San Marino for over 12 years, and will do so again. The only problem we have ever had was this year and it was the kiosk for the beach towels and getting a palapa. I am sad to say the young guy handing out the towels was totally rude ! The kiosk was to...

We had an all-inclusive 5 night, 6 day stay at this hotel. We did not realize that Mexicans take their vacations either 1 week before or 1 week after Easter, and everything was extremely crowded. Our hotel catered more to the Mexicans, and we were the minority! We had very nice, large, Jr. Suites - large beach front balconies and...
