Many times, choosing a hotel near the right beach can add a little something extra to your vacation.
Many guests are excited to learn that this property is directly on the water, so you won't have to go out of the way to experience first hand what makes the area such a popular vacation destination.

Because the waters around the Playa Marlin beach tend to be rough, swimming can be difficult and even dangerous off these shores.
