Hotel Marina was originally built in 1969 and stands in the middle of Izola, a short distance from the “Lighthouse” beach (200 metres away). The popular hotel restaurant gives priority to seasonal goods and local suppliers; hence the quality of the food is excellent.

Double Sea View rooms are on the 4th floor (please note that the lift only goes as far as the 3rd floor and then there is a flight of stairs) - the sea view can be enjoyed from the small balcony.

King Superior rooms also have a terrace or balcony with sea view.
Junior Suite is on the first floor. It consists of a sleeping and living area as well as a terrace with sea view.
The hotel restaurant is one of the most visited and popular restaurants on the Slovenian coast. Respect for food is its guiding principle, and the authentic flavours of Istrian and Mediterranean dishes appeal to the most discerning guest. In 2020 the restaurant was awarded with "The Plate" award by the Michelin Guide. There is an extensive wine list with preference being given to the local Slovenian Istria-based wine-growers and domesticated local varieties.
In the renovated part of the lobby you can relax, read newspapers, browse through a book and enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, or glass of wine.
