Was in a KIng Size Suite overlooking the pools and marina. The room furnishings were top notch making up for some outdatedness otherwise. TV in both main area & in bedroom, however being as I was only there for one night with a group tour, I did not really need or use much of the space as it has a...

We stayed in this hotel as part of a group tour to the Copper Canyon. I loved the place. It was immaculately clean, well appointed with a great balcony overlooking the harbour (great sunset, sunrise and panorama). We arrived to hear latin music playing and folk dancing. The atmosphere was awesome as our favourite Zumba song came on, so we...

Dimitri had pre-booked at Marinaterra (Estrada s/n, Sector Herradura, San Carlos, Sonora, tel.622- 225-2020, www.marinaterr.com). Our room (#118) cost M$1800/US $148 including breakfast. The hotel/condo complex is old and kind of dilapidated. Our junior suite was actually a one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen (with a coffee maker but no microwave), dining area and living room. The refrigerator was from The...

Haven't stayed at every hotel in San Carlos, so I can't say this is the best. But it probably is. Remember, this isn't Vegas. For starters, the location on the marina is great, especially if you're going fishing or diving. There is a small adjoining plaza with a handful of shops and restaurants. The upper pool deck is awesome with...

Just came back from 3 nights at the Marinaterra and was pleasantly surprised. I had received mixed reviews from my fellow divers who have stayed there. That being said, as is usual in Mexico, there is a problem with the credit card billing that may be a hassle to get resolved. We went as part of a group from our...

I've stayed here twice. Both times I had different rooms. The first time I was there, I wished they had heat, or mine wasn't functioning.
