This has been the best Hotel stay I’ve experienced! Coming from the southern states, the hospitality has been phenomenal. As soon as you pull into Valet everyone is so welcoming and helpful. Every time you get out of an Uber, they are quick to come open your doors. Not just when you arrive to the hotel. I wish I would have caught the names of everyone that helped us this week and made this week so memorable and easy..but for the person who stands out the most, Sean knocked it out of the park!! The stay would not have been as great without his amazing, positive attitude and help with knowing which restaurants/ activities to go to while we were in town. The rooms were clean, room service is quick and they will make your bed whenever needed. They provided us with water bottles in the room almost everyday and fresh towels when we needed. The view was great. The noise cancellation in the room is top notch. I didnt hear any noises from the hallway/ other rooms. The pool is clean and has a great view of the ocean. I cannot remember the gals name that was working at the pool, but she was there April 15th. Her service was amazing. The pool food and drinks were good Not only is the service great inside the hotel But also on the beach… Michael helped us with the beach rentals, was so helpful, had a great attitude and made the beach service/ rental part such a breeze! (You get two chairs per room, I believe) which is an amazing bonus. Can’t say enough about this hotel, truly! I usually book airbnbs on trips. But we definitely would not have had as smooth and great of an experience if we had not stayed here. Thanks for the hospitality! Read less

He was so accommodating and always going above and beyond for us during our stay. Sean was also so amazing! Always in a good mood and always smiling and welcoming. Anytime we had questions he was quick to answer and guide us in the right direction. We all highly recommend this place due to these two guys, as well as clean hotel, great beds and pillows…. Free drinks and beach chairs! Read less

We stayed at the Hotel Maren after cruising with Celebrity. Since we disembarked very early we got to the hotel around 9 am knowing our room would not be ready. We were greeted by the bellman Sean like we were the Kardasians. He told us if we needed anything just ask. We were then handed off to the desk manager, Javier. He gave us a key to the pool area so we can wait for our room to open up. Since we are Diamond members he said we would have an upgrade. The pool area is on the 5th floor overlooking the beach. It also has some loungers with canopies which we occupied till our room was available. The pool bar maid was also very friendly and helpful. Our room on the 10th floor was ready by 11 am. It was the size of a small condo with a view of the ocean and a 30 ft. wide balcony. It was very clean and updated. The breakfast at their restaurant was also excellent. We have been HH members for over 25 years but never experienced two employees as engaging as Javier and Sean. We felt as though we were staying at the Ritz. Since COVID customer service has declined in the hotel and restaurant industry. Except at the Maren. Bravo to all involved. Read less

Great location and not super busy either. Many hotels in this area are jammed with people and everyone is so busy, busy. We enjoyed our stay here at the Hotel Maren. Very nice location and close to everything we wanted to be close to. I would recommend as a great place to stay for a couple.
