Stayed there brilliant hotel and food was great and i'm fussy only downside when footballs on they let every tom dick and mary in to watch it on their large screens remove sunbeds from pool area and replace them with tables and chairs to cram as many in to make as much money as they can at the expense of paying guests and i'm a football fan to but it's annoying
If I ever go to benni again, I'd book the marina very friendly x
stayed twice and used their facilities many times. Got a terrible room which ruined my stay but it is a brilliant location hotel with a good pool if you like a big crowd.
What a difference the upgrade rooms are well worth the little extra. The food has came on leaps and bounds
We were there in January. We were ground floor and asked to move and it was no bother. Nice hotel right in the thick of it
Heard diff things about the Marina Hotel, we can't fault it clean, nice staff & a good selection of food 10/10
Outside areas are the best bits
I stayed in Marina last April sadly twin room we had was on ground floor, wall lights were dangling didn't complain as low room was requested and only slept in it had to keep curtains closed as holiday guest would sun lounge under our window til I opened window asking nicely if they could move
food was more for Spanish as it was Easter time best part of Marina was outside area but that's my opinion only snag was non staying guest could use pool areas and bar
Well our last night in Benidorm in the hotel marina wouldn’t stop on the second floor again no balcony and you can here all the music but lovely hotel thou x
Love marina we always stay there, great location only 2 mins from beach & 1 min to bars!! Enjoy 😊
Just returned from the marina, only fault I had was our room was very dated and there was no tea/coffee making facilities everything else was great, great location we never ate in the hotel as there was a lovely wee place straight across the road. The noise died down around 12.30ish at night and once the patio doors were shut you heard nothing. No real complaints about this hotel at all.
This hotel is lovely...the security of the pool area is second to none...most of the staff (some exceptions in the reception) are fantastic and go out of their way to help you.
We had a group of 14 stay 2 weeks in Aug last year and the rooms were spotless...all our rooms had a balcony and my room in particular was on 3rd floor above the White Star...hardly heard a thing when the doors were closed.
The food was hit and miss but you are in Spain...most of the food WILL be Spanish...if you pay for food inclusive of your stay then you will be limited....Best paying for room only if you want all English all the time. Didn't bother me so much but my mum is weird about food and ended up hardly eating anything in the hotel.
Also...most people don´t exactly go on holiday to be sitting in a hotel room watching tv...there are plenty of channels in English but for us it was more for background noise while getting ready.
Overall...great hotel...great location...somewhat good food...fantastic staff. 4.5 out of 5 for us. Will be going again in Aug.
We stayed here in January 2018. no noise once we shut patio doors. Ask for room higher up. Food was great always something nice, salad bar, chef cooking something if you like hot food like me. Lovely desserts and wine in restaurant 5 euros bottle. Dont know what some people want for the money we paid it was fab. Lovely and clean.
We stayed in January was ok went as a hen party only two of girls had food the wasn't impressed x although we had a fridge "inside the dressing table"!!! we didn't find it till day we came home! on kettle in room or tea making facilities and we wasn't happy that we left at 7.30 in the morning and there was nowhere to get a coffee before we went either inside the hotel or around it x we did suggest a coffee or vending machine to be available for early leavers but it went right over their heads! x room was clean and changed etc x not too noisy but locations spot on and loads of eating places around x
Returned home last night, very impressed with the hotel. Our room was very luxurious though others in our group said their rooms were dated. We smelt the newness everytime we walked in the door so obviously some rooms have been modernised to a very high standard. The whole place was spotless, bar staff very friendly. Will definitely be back.
We are here now as we speak nice clean room food seems ok to us a tad noisy but we are above white star pub all in all can't fault for what we paid
Just come back from there and I thought rooms were great fantastic shower and fridge also air conditioning. Had room on seventh floor with pool view and also a beach view. Should imagine it's quite noisy in main season but would definitely stay there again

Great location, fab for pool with kids, rooms dated though and beds were only Changed when we asked which we found disappointing also food really poor when compared to some other hotels with less star rating but It's quite cheap to eat out though.
stopped in the MARINA 3 week ago , cheap drink, pool area very good, massive t.v screen, pool bar, just thought our rooms were a bit dated but I would deffo stop there again
Lovely hotel good location breakfast is nice but we weren't keen on the evening meals. We've stayed there 3 times staying again in February and again in October we've not heard any noise and we have even been in middle of August. We are a couple in our fifties and don't get in till late so that could be why we don't hear the noise lol 😁 😁 😁

Staying at the Marina at the moment. Rooms a good size 2 double beds plenty of drawers and electrical sockets. Bathroom one of the biggest we have had in Benidorm and good water pressure from the shower. Food ok not the best or the biggest selection we have had elsewhere but always found something to eat. Bar and food prices at the bars good value.

Arrived yesterday staying at Marina, must say so far its been great. Lovely Breakfast, lots to choose from. Was a little bit nervous reading the reviews re the Marina, the noise etc but to be honest it dies down about 12ish and I didn't hear anything worth noting about the noise from the square etc. Staff etc are lovely, great atmosphere

Reviews taken from our forum
Mike Berry - Stayed there a few years ago I wasn't impressed with the restaurant or food but the Hotel was fine.
They seem to have a lot of Spanish receptions there weddings etc not a problem for us but some people mightn't not like it.
The pool area is great it has the largest outside TV screen in Benidorm.
However since we stayed there the square seems to have expanded with a lot of the bar fronts now have been opened up which has increased the noise in the area until the early hours.
Brenda Short - Stayed here Xmas and new year, food terrible hardly any choice,noise from white star till about 2,then the square till 8, only good thing I would say is how clean it is, spotless, stopped in lots of hotels in Benidorm this has got to be the worst.
Ann Gary Fishwick - We stayed last year it's spotless the food was awful had to go out and eat we complained and so did a few others yet when we lived there we had a few meals and it was good but that happens could be different chef it's very noisy it's right were the busy bars are if you don't mind the noise then maybe you like it.
Julia Morris Was Ambrose - Stayed in August the hotel is spot on but the food wasn't very good. Went down a couple of times and the smell of the food put me off eating.
Joanne Brind - If you like to be kept awake till 5am with the load music then you will enjoy. We stayed there in April and we definitely would not recommend this hotel. The rooms are so dated and the food was not up to much either. But this my opinion. Hope this helps.
Lesley Canovi - This is my favourite hotel in Benidorm...brilliant location..friendly staff and always lots going on. Only had breakfast but that was great.
Tanya Soley - Just come back from marina . Great hotel. We were on 12th floor and shut balcony doors and was not kept awake by music . You will love it.
Tina Vallance - It'll be our third time going in April, lovely hotel, right in the middle, can be noisy but who goes to Benidorm to sleep? Plus you could take earplugs? Food hit and miss we've gone b n b this year x
Gillian Seven - Love the marina you can't sleep because of the noise but after copious amounts of alcohol it might help fab location & as for the pool area & bars in hotel they are brilliant just come back & couldn't get booked in but still went every day only bad side is the food is not too clever but I always found something to eat.
Ju Toon - Stayed in Marina before and would again, not a 5* but not a bad hotel, it's got everything you need for the amount of time you spend in it BUT its location is 2nd to none, lets face it your going to Benidorm to spend most of your time outside in Benidorm.
Kim Scanlin - Stayed in the Marina last year...staff lovely...hotel and pool lovely...food rotten and was full of Spanish pushing you out the way to get in the lift first...why??.....brilliant location though...
Bob Vickers - Great hotel staff were very attentive and smiled a lot which made a nice change food was ok always found something I liked and the night of the Kebab there was still loads of choices. Will book again no problem.
David John Lamb - November 2016, fantastic hotel but the food & organization in the canteen is diabolical the worst I've ever seen just a pile of slop I wouldn't give it 1 star out of 100 plus I wouldn't feed it to the homeless you will be disappointed I've been going to Benidorm since 1979 & never seen anything like it, but the hotel is lovely.
Huw Cole - My parents stayed there and the rooms were dated and food awful ! it would be a good place to stay room only i think,. I visit the Marina at least 3 times during our stay in Benidorm as it's a meeting place in the Secret Garden outdoors bar with live music which is fab, if you like Spanish food, pigs trotters etc then it might suit.
Paul Brind - Only stayed there once and hated it. You get little or no sleep, in the main because of the thud, thud, thud of the music from Tiki City until 5 in the morning. We were on the 14th floor and ear plugs made no difference. The rooms are very dated and the lifts were the slowest we've ever come across. Now let's move on to the bad points......
