My two teens and I had an incredible vacation. The resort is NOT fancy but it is clean and safe. Don't go to this resort of you want gleaming brand new fancy amenities and food. Go if you want wonderful day trips, and even better people. The locals are charming and warm. We got the VIP Package and it was... More

There might be some downsides like the food or the dated rooms, but come on guys... It's Cuba. I was staying at Marea del Portillo for the first time a few months ago and I really enjoyed my week. The staff are amazing and work hard to provide a memorable experience for the guests. I will definitely be going back!

We visited Marea October 2014. My opinion is it is a safe resort but like all places, don't go where you shouldn't be. Agree with the Cayo Blanco comments. And the sunset cruise is lovely! If they are having issues with the boat, well, that would be another story. My suggestion is buy some Cuban convertible pesos (CUC's) at the... More

Cons: Lack of variety at buffet and get there early, they dont replenish items. No salad stuff (cabbage, frozen green beans does not make a salad), Fly in on wednesday by saturday they ran out of french fries... More

About Manzanillo the Cuba, hotel " Marea del Castillo" with the package sunwing'. Was one of the cheapest holiday we had never done. And one of the most rustic, authentic and beautiful so far. If you don't mind about luxus and extra buffet and if you tolerant about few isolated people looking for a "Cuban adventure" this is a great... More

I just returned from a week's stay at Marea Del Portillo,Manzanillo Cuba. It is low season and our bus load of people were the only guests there, besides some locals. We had to disembark the plane for a half hour on the flight down in Santa Clara, so the plane could be cleaned for the return flight. Upon arrival in... More
