Reviews for Mar Marina
Mar Marina, 2015-01-26
Captain: , New Bern, NC. (801)

We were there for 2 nights in Dec. 2014 as transits to stage for departure from the Rio, the slips and bath rooms/showes were clean and well maintained. Good security .We spent 5 months in the Rio and Mar Marina had great food and entertainment. We would go there for movie night and eat. Marlen and staff made you feel at home even though you had no boat there. We would dinghy in and buy a drink and use the Internet when we were anchored in Shell Bay. They have installed a swimming pool with a large deck and Tiki bar.

Not the worst, but also not the best in Rio Dulce, 2014-05-22
Captain: , Singapore (66)

We spent 6 months at Mar. Overall a good marina that has a bit more wind that most marinas around, in a place where it get seriosuly hot during the rainy season.... and it does rain!
Good sides: good docks, decently clean, free water (same as other marinas in the Rio), more windy that most, short dinghy ride away from "Fronteras", a basically one street village with basic shopping opportunities.
Not so good: Rates somewhat higher than most other marinas, electricity price astronomical, 8% surcharge on credit card (!), internet very unstable, restaurant pretty bad and expensive, charge on workman coming to work on the boat.



Very nice place but..., 2013-05-11

I agree with Dave on this with one caveat. If you want to get work done to the boat you have to deal through the marina. They want their cut and that limits you to a small number of contractors.
Other than that. Top notch.

Excellent support from Marlen and her crew. There are so many appealing things about Mar Marina, especially compared to some of the alternatives that I don't really know where to begin. Clean, responsive, supportive, and readily accessible.
