If you insist on 'perfect' amenities (Vegas-style shows, 5-star restaurants, exquisite cuisine, zip lines through a rainforest), you will not be happy here. If, however, you prize hospitality, beautiful scenery, serendipity, adventure and the kindest people you will ever meet, you will not only come here once, you will return as soon as you can. There was plenty for our... More

My husband and I returned here after five years away. LOTS of improvements were noted. The resort looked fabulous. Stayed in the lower Marea section during March break. We like the cabanas on the beach. We did go to the Farallon for dinner a couple of times, but really didn't enjoy the louder atmosphere there. Food was maybe slightly better... More

My husband and I went there 2 years ago on a whim because it was an inexpensive trip, we've been there 4 times since. Beautiful scenery, people, atmosphere. We are going again in just 3 weeks from now, we go evey April and Sept. The only thing you need to watch out for is the crabs. They make a trip... More

It is a small and quiet hotel in a remote and beautiful location. Rooms and surroundings are cleaned daily (in response to some reviews - during our stay toilet paper was available in all washrooms in the hotel area). Rooms are in need of some repair but they are perfectly ok. We stayed in a ground floor of a cabana... More

Stayed at the Marea. For my family, vacation and having fun is not confined within the resort's premises. If you'relooking for a luxurious accomodation and wild parties, go somewhere else and leave this lovely place to us who love the peace and quiet. It's the people that make this place so special both inside and outside the resort. Interacting with... More

Many reviews have been written about Club Amigo Marea del Portillo and I believe that the majority of the reviewers have been well intentioned. I won't bore you with another. I have been traveling to Cuba and to Marea in particular for the past twenty-six years, so, in no particular order, let me offer you some advice on how to... More

We traveled as a couple aided by my experience there many years ago and some thorough research of reviews online. We had a completely enjoyable time. The mountains. the beach, the naturally wild nature of the countryside and the way in which the property blends into that landscape were quite astounding. In order to not be repetitive, here are our... More

We looked forward to returning to this hotel. It has a lovely beach, adequate Cuban food consisting of buffets with some great salads, and wonderful fresh fruit along with cooked food. The sunset cruise is well worthwhile as is the trip to Playa Blanco where they serve a great lobster lunch. My big complaint about the resort is noise -... More
