As I stepped into the grand entrance of the Villa Marina near Marina Del Rey, California, I was transported to a world of luxury and indulgence. The warm welcome from the staff made me feel like a VIP, and as I looked around, I couldn't help but be in awe of the beautiful decor and stunning ocean views.
My stay at the Villa Marina was an unforgettable experience, filled with world-class amenities, impeccable service, and unforgettable memories. Join me as I share with you my Villa Marina Los Angeles review of this breathtaking LA hotel for families and solo travelers.
Villa Marina Los Angeles Review
For starters, let's talk about the accommodations at Villa Marina. The 3-star apartments come fully equipped with everything you need, from a fully equipped kitchen to a private balcony. You'll also have access to free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a coffee/tea maker, and a hairdryer.
Keep in mind that housekeeping services are not available, but each air-conditioned room features a bathroom with a shower. So, whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, like me, the comfortable and well-appointed apartments at Villa Marina will make you feel right at home.
Dining Options Nearby
Let's talk about food! Lucky for me, Marina Del Rey has a ton of great dining options just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Villa Marina. I was craving Italian one evening so I headed over to Taverna Riva or Bar Auro, both just five minutes away. If you're feeling fancy, Cocktail Bar Varadero and Pumparela Restaurant are even closer.
And if you're in the mood for something a little different, check out Villa Dzamonja. With so many options, you're bound to find the perfect spot for a delicious meal or a fun night out with friends.
Facilities And Amenities
This amazing smoke-free apartment building, which I really appreciated as I am a non-smoker, offers a luxurious accommodation in Los Angeles that is family and child friendly, with cribs provided for free. For your convenience, there's a parking lot where you can self-park and free WiFi in public areas.
Plus, air conditioning and heating in the bedroom are ready for you, depending on the weather. Fresh sheets and towels are provided for each bathroom, which was really convenient as I forgot to bring a towel, and the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils, stove, refrigerator, and dishware you need.
Sounds like the perfect place to call home, isn't it?
Just a heads up - Villa Marina doesn't offer room service or have a front desk, so you'll have to channel your inner Martha Stewart and tidy up your apartment yourself.
But don't worry, everything you need to know to make your reservation is right there on their website.
And with such lovely accommodations, you'll hardly mind a bit of light housekeeping.
Locations And Surroundings
As a guest of Villa Marina, you'll find yourself in the heart of Southern California's most iconic destinations. Take a relaxing walk along the Venice Beach Boardwalk, just a few miles away, or immerse yourself in marine life at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, just a short drive down the coast.
And for breathtaking ocean views, head to Palisades Park, just a few miles further. Whatever your interests, Villa Marina's prime location makes it easy to explore all that the area has to offer.
On the other hand, if you are looking for something more central, check out this top-notch hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.
Pricing And Value For Money
Compared to grander and more luxurious hotels in the area, prices for apartments in Villa Marina Del Rey are really affordable, starting from around $75 to $120. The prices are economical because there is no room service, front desk, or other activities like an outdoor swimming pool.
However, the value of money is great as there is easy access to nearby popular areas and restaurants. Shopping malls and City Center are also nearby.
