4 Day BreakPosted Nov 11, 2011 on Hotels
This Hotel is ideally located just outside the city. Its a great location for the cost and I would recommend it. Keep in mind that you probably will not have any hot water and your towels will not be changed on a daily basis. In brief its a great hotel but has poor support services. You can't have it all,. its the D.R

Good valuePosted Oct 24, 2011 on Hotels
For the fairly low price, you get as much as you get in many higher-priced hotels. Free breakfast every morning (I recommend the traditional Dominican breakfast), cable television, a seating area and kitchen (in case you wanted to do your own cooking), etc. If you want to be in the midst of all the action, this is not the place for you; but if you, like me, prefer to be away from the action (while being able to easily get to it if I wanted to), this is the place to stay. On a map, it looks a lot further away from things than it really is. For example, I was easily able to walk to El Conde and throughout much of the Colonial Zone, as well as walk down to the sea shore. (For those of you too lazy to walk or unable to walk long distances, taxis are relatively inexpensive). Don't order room service and don't try to make sense of the cost of taxis to various places: the lists show both the US dollar price and the Dominican peso price and they don't exactly match. Go out and buy food and beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and bring it back to your room (there's a Jumbo supermarket on El Conde and an Ole supermarket in Santo Domingo Este but don't go walking around Santo Domingo Este northeast of the hotel at night). There's a park right near the hotel but only go there during the daytime unless you're looking to acquire certain services from women of questionable character or are looking to put yourself at considerable risk (several locals have separately advised against being in the park at night; about an hour or two before dark, you can watch some teen boys playing baseball without the benefit of baseball diamonds). If you want to venture out to more distant places (I took a trip out to La Romana to tour a cigar factory), take a bus (you can take a taxi to the appropriate bus station; e.g. take the Express bus to Boca Chica and La Romana and Caribe Tours to points north); it's a whole lot cheaper than taking a taxi. The staff was friendly and helpful and there's good security. Don't expect your room to get cleaned every day (I arrived there on a Monday and the cleaning staff didn't come to my room until Thursday); personally, I don't have a problem with that because I really don't need to have the bed made every day or fresh towels every day (two towels were sufficient to get me through until the cleaning people came in; though I'm sure if I wanted fresh towels I could have asked for them). If you're not going to Santo Domingo for what your hotel has to offer, but are only using the hotel to sleep, shower and watch some occasional television, I definitely recommend Hostal Marina Real. If you absolutely need all the frills of the often-overpriced tourist hotels in the midst of all the action, stay elsewhere. One more thing: if you're out walking at night (the best time to see El Conde and to go to the clubs and restaurants), watch out when you're crossing the main roads in particular because some of the motorcycles don't have working headlights.

If you are looking for a cheap place.Posted Sep 5, 2011
I had to stay here because of Hurricane Irene my flight was canceled for a 6 days. This was the cheapest Hotel I could find. I was switched from my room 4 times I only stayed in the Hotel 3 and half days because I went to another part of the country and I had to be at the airport by 4am. The day I arrived and the next days was the only two times they cleaned my room. I had the switch my room because the maid never came. The area isn't the nicest and there isn't wi-fi in all the rooms. I have to be basically out the window to get coonections or I would have to go two floors down to get connected. They shut off the iternet whenever they please as well. The hotel is new and modern and is the only thing I liked other then the price.
