Marinos Cottages consist of eight units, four downstairs (pool side) and four upstairs. One of the downstairs unit and two of the upstairs units have basic kitchen facilities. The property is located about 10 min walk to the beach and is close to restaurants, money changers etc. There is a lovely little restaurant right over the road that will deliver meals to your room at ridiculously low prices. Beautiful food, cooked fresh by a lovely young married couple. There is another excellent restaurant nearby serving an array of Indo and western dishes called Lusi Warung. (Turn right when you leave the complex, walk along the lane over the main road and keep going for about 3 min you will see it on the right hand side). Prices are much less than you will pay in the restaurants on the main roads
We had room 7 which was upstairs with a kitchen. It consisted of a large room with very comfortable king bed, digital TV, air con, safe and good free wifi. There was no couch as per the photos on the website. The kitchen consisted of a frig, two burner gas hot plate, sink. Cooking utensils were limited to a large wok so we had to buy pot, fry pan, cups but crockery and cutlery were provided by staff. It was sufficient for making snacks if you do not feel like going out.
I inspected the non kitchen rooms and they were absolutely huge with bed, sofa, TV etc and huge bathrooms. There are no coffee/tea making facilities so you need to provide your own (bring a hot water jug, cups etc)
The small pool area is compact and surrounding gardens are lush and well tended. The whole complex including the rooms are spotlessly clean and maintained by two on site young guys who are very helpful but have limited English. There is an on site supervisor Mon- Frid who is very helpful and speaks English.
Pool towels are not provided so if you want to use the pool or go to the beach you need to bring your own towels
When researching this property I noticed a disparity in the prices so it pays to check various sites (we used the site mentioned on the web Matahari Hospitality Management and they were very efficient and gave us a good price - I think they are the property managers.
The property is a bit hard to find and most drivers we used did not know where it was so I downloaded a map from the internet which was help with the taxi from the airport. It is located next to the Pelasa Hotel just down the road from Panorama 2 cottages ( which most drivers seemed to know).
Next to the restaurant over the road there is a lovely massage lady (Annie) who gives one of the best massages that I have ever had(also other various beauty treatments if you wish)
We enjoyed this property so much that we have already booked for next year.
