I'm looking for a way to drop pins on the map from my computer and have those pins accessible on my iPhone.

I know Maps app has Bookmarks but it appears I can't sync them with Google account or anything. Can I achieve this functionality, with or without third-party apps?

Google Places app

You can rate and review places from the app as well.
