Our checkin was speedy and the desk staff very helpful. The room (312) was spotless, quiet and wonderful! The beds were very comfortable (14" mattress on top of concrete base) with a fluffy white comforter and big fluffy pillows. There was AC but we were comfortable with the slider open and the ceiling fan on. there was a faint smell...

We stayed there for 4 nights in late December. The room looked out over the marina, just steps away. The restauarant served wonderful food at a very reasonable price, with...

Hubby stayed here 3 nights for a scuba diving trip with a group. He said the room was clean, comfortable, and reservation was honored with no problem. The view of the harbor is fabulous, hotel is very close to restaurants too.

This was our second trip to San Carlos, Mexico for scuba diving. For divers, the underwater scenery does not compare either to the Pacific or the Caribbean, but there are alot of octopus, which is a plus. Our bad experience at the Marinaterra began upon check-in. We arrived at the hotel at 5:30PM, waited on a long line, and upon...

This is by far the best place to stay in San Carlos, however, you need to adjust your expectations before you arrive....this is not an internationally competitive hotel and spa, it is easy to be disappointed. So it is easier to lower your expectations somewhat. The hotel sits adjacent to the marina, so if you get a room facing the...
