"Great hotel, lovely setting and staff excellent."
As above... Great hotel, lovely setting and staff excellent.
Only one small point, the restaurant had a limited menu but fortunately the kids menu was available for adults too!!! Little pricey too but overall, a very decent place to stay.
My experience at the Real Marina was wonderful! I have no complaints about my time there, all of the staff were very helpful and friendly and if there was any query or problem this was always quickly rectified, without me having to ask more than once.
The personal touch made our stay very memorable. The trip was mainly to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The staff at reception while checking us in asked to see both of our passports (for security measures), they remembered the date of my boyfriends birthday and arranged for room service to deliver a birthday and a bottle of bubbly on his birthday which was a really lovely surprise.
The hotel facilities made us feel very comfortable, the spa on the first floor was also lovely, we had a couples massage, it made us so relaxed that my boyfriend actually ended up falling asleep! The indoor and outside pool were very clean and both areas were well equipped with loungers, parasols and tables and chairs for those who wanted to eat and still enjoy the sun.
There are various places down the road from the hotel (all within a 5 min walk) that offer various places to eat and drink, the island is well known for their sea food so if you get the chance to indulge make sure you do. If not the food in the hotel was also very good, we had breakfast every morning which was a large buffet, which I would say catered to everyone. A full english was available, a large amount of fruit, various types of bread etc.
Nice modern building with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The town itself is really nice, but once you have found your way around there is not much to do. Would really recommend Gunthers Restaurant, 8 euro taxi ride. Great food and service. Would also recommend pizza na pedra. Short walk from hotel along the front. Nice food and not expensive, if you like a G&T, get one there. Emotions is good and cheap too. Just make sure you either take your walking shoes or hire a car.
Not sure how a "fully booked" hotel can be so quiet. Service was a problem. Our room was not ready when we arrived (after the check-in time) and the next day, the room wasn't cleaned until after 6 pm.
Pretty hotel but not run very efficiently.
