We were there over New years and they are now called Coral Marien Resorts. I don’t think you would suggest it is a 5 STAR but a great resort. Email if you need more information

I sent the e-mail last night but my friend travels from hotel to hotel so it might be a few days before he sees the e-mail. Also things often get done in Dominican time.

I have this contact from November. I emailed him about our room upgrade as we were there Jan 1/07. He was fairly quick to respond. Hope this helps.

I also emailed Bani and he was quick to respond. We are going to the Marien on the 28th. Did you find that your requests to Bani were granted?

Any other changes being made to the resort with the new ownership?


#11

I just cross my fingers that he answers me
Thanks so much to all of you.

They suggest that there will be no changes. I haven’t been before however everyone seemed to be fairly pleased. The rooms are fairly basic but that’s what you usually get. Only in the room to shower and get a little shut eye. We were given a better building and some beautiful fruits and gifts were waiting for us when we arrived. I had asked for an upgrade for our wedding anniversary on Dec. 29. I always say “It can’t hurt to ask.”

Thanks Thanks Thanks to all of you… I sent an email to this person and I have actually heard back from bani and he said that he would put the right person in contact with me.
Thanks

I’m sad to hear that the Coral Marien has changed its name yet again. This property opened in 2001 as Coral Marien Beach Resort and Spa (that was the first time I went there) then it was bought out by Hilton and became Marien Coral By Hilton (that was the second time I went there). The resort is gorgeous and has a great entatertainment team (chocolate friends). I hope all the great traditions of the hotel that kept loyal customers returning repeatedly doesnt change too much!!!
