Marenas Beach Resort
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Sunny Isles Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2017

We've been staying at the Marenas for years now and it's always a good time, never a regret! The pool boys Chris, Rudy & co as well as their AMAZING cabana manager Kenny Dominguez made our daily beach experience one to remember. They are always there to help and offer great service, whether it be for a towel or chairs or an umbrella, they get it to you within seconds. Thank you thank you thank you to the amazing staff, great vacation!

Room Tip: The corner rooms have a nice view of the beach and are usually the bigger ones!

Been to the marenas a handful of times and we always get the best service when we're there. Thank you to Kenny, Chris, Matthew and the rest of the beach crew, it truly wouldn't be the same without you guys. You guys always make us feel right at home with your impeccable service and friendliness. Thank you again from your favourite Canadian family.

It was a great time with the family. Warm people, nice place, wonderful beach services. The swimming pool is small, that's a negative point, but the rest was as promised. I would go back again in the future.

My family and I just completed our second 11 night stay at the Marenas. Without a doubt, the Marenas experience was phenomenal. The staff were very attentive, kind, courteous and always willing to help. The experience was awesome. The resort is kid friendly and promotes a family based environment. My children had a blast and made many new friends. Evidence of the type of positive environment and experiences promoted by the resort.
One individual MUST be commended for his extraordinary service – Ken Dominquez. Ken managers and organizes the water experience at the resort – pool and beach – where my family, a beach craved Canadian bunch, spent 90% of daylight hours.
Ken and his team (Juan, Reggie, Chris, Matthew, Yanny, Claudio and Jeffrey) are extremely respectful, courteous and ambassadors of good will and positive experiences. They did an amazing job and provided the BEST water experience for me and my family.
I can confidently say that one of the main reasons we will return to this resort is because of the efforts and experiences delivered by Ken and his team. Notable mention to other members of the Marenas team includes the GM, Sandra Hanono, Jacob, Talia, Shannon, Luis, David and Renzo.

This hotel is just a great place to stay! Just north of the mayhem of South Beach with what I think is a better beach.

We were in a 1bdrm beachfront with 2 bathrooms and a pullout couch. The room was spotless and the view was simply magnificent! Check in was easy and the concierge always seemed to be around if we needed him. I have to give a specific shout out to Kenny D down on the beach. He is a breath of fresh air and not only called us by name the entire time but made it a point to make sure we were happy. He is training his crew the right way, by leading. He is out there every morning pulling chairs into position with a smile on his face. I simply can't say enough about Kenny and his crew on that amazing beach. Really the entire staff at Marenas is fantastic. Every interaction was met with a smile and a great attitude.

Sunny Isles is about 30 mins north of South Beach so a day trip or even dinner down there is easy but it is even better getting back up to Marenas to relax. The food, both in restaurant and room service was very good and a little pricey but really not too bad. We decided it was so beautiful there really was no need to go out to dinner and had either rooms service or had food delivered and ate it out on the balcony watching the cruise ships go by.

If there is any downside and I had to think about this as we really loved it here. There is construction going on nearby so you will probably hear some noise now and again. The bar is a great, but sometimes even though it was open there was no one serving and we had to wait a couple times till a bartender appeared. it seemed under utilized even with great happy hour prices. I wish they had a gift shop of some sort but there is shopping for ANYTHING within 10 mins of the hotel so again, not the end of the world.

Seriously, this place is great and we are already planning on heading back down in Sept with family and friends.

Room Tip: If you can go oceanFRONT, it is amazing but even oceanview or bayfront/sunset views are amazing.

Thank you for choosing Marenas and for taking time to review your recent stay with us! I'm very happy you found us and that you enjoyed our location away from the hustle and bustle on South Beach. I'm thrilled to hear our team provided you with such great service and that you were able to get out and explore the area while also making time to relax on the beach and your private balcony! We do appreciate your constructive feedback concerning the MBar and will certainly review it to hopefully enhance your experience next time! Additionally, your idea of a gift shop/grab and go is a great thought and something our team is already reviewing! We really appreciate the excellent review and recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back in September!
