Stayed at the Marea Del Portillo in April, had a room right on the beach. Upgraded to VIP when we arrived. Nusta was wonderful and took care of this for us. Check in: went well, very quick--it was a late check in and there were snacks for us; bellboy took our bags to our room Room: only complaint is that... More

I am not a picky traveller, and I know that "what you pay for is what you get". With that being said, I was not prepared for what I actually was going to get. Let me also point out, I have been to Cuba more than once, so I am not a biased reviewer. -It is an hour and a... More

Our first visit. We read all the reviews carefully and this vacation turned out to be even better than we expected. This is the real Cuba! Many of the guests were repeat visitors and we found out why. Everyone was so friendly. I walked into the town of Marea one day (25 minutes) and passed many locals on bicycles, horses... More

We are a male same-sex married couple both 37 years old with our 9 year old son. Cuba is one of our favourite vacation spots but we hadn't experienced this part of the island before. I had always wanted to see the mountains of Cuba (Sierra Maestra). This was truly a gorgeous setting, not for the dark sand beach but... More

The rooms are clean and the views are wonderful. Service is good and very friendly. The food is not great and they often run out of items but you never need to go hungry. It is quite isolated so is good for extreme R&R. The ocean water was very rough but warm. I'm not likely to return.

It is my 4th visit to this resort and it remains my favorite in Cuba for reasons outlined in a previous contribution and that of others. Improvements to the cabana sections are starting to make a difference but as this is the start of the low season, tradesmen and contractors are continuing the work generating some traffic and noise. I... More
