This is our 6th stay at San Marino by the Sea and we wouldn't go any where else. We had the perfect unit where all the windows looked out over the ocean. So peaceful to lie in bed and see nothing but oceans. The units are huge for our 6 member family and are so well equipped. The managers Neil...

We stayed recently in November and were immediately surprised at the great size of the apartment and a wonderful view straight out of the ocean. A fabulously relaxing time over three days although the weather wasn't great, the location was fantastic. Good size and comfortable furniture made it feel very homely indeed. Full size kitchen and the only small downsize...

We have just returned from our second stay at San Marino by the Sea. Once again our expectations of the accommodation we exceeded. The management are very helpful and always very friendly. Staying at San Marino is like a luxury home away from home rather than a hotel apartment. Their apartments have a full kitchen, separate laundry, good size deck...

We enjoyed a lovely apartment on the fifth floor. There was plenty of room and everything was well maintained and clean. The beach so close and not crowded. It is also patrolled. If you want to be able to communicate with the outside world don't rely on being able to use the phone in the apartment, as you can't. Also...

Great apartments with absolutely everything you could need for a fabulous and relaxing stay. Walk out the back gate onto a superb beach and walk in either direction for a leisurely walk. The apartments were beautifully maintained and the managers were friendly and helpful.We plan to return and will recommend to friends.
