My husband and I along with our 11 year old daughter spent March break at the Farallon. We were originally booked at the Marea, but our Cabana location overlooked what we thought looked like a ditch. My husband went to ask if we could be moved. They said the Marea was full, but said they would be happy to let us take a look at the Farallon. They went with him in a taxi and went up the hill to the Farallon. He liked the room they showed him, so we moved. The Farallon is a more modern hotel and the rooms, although smaller, look a little nicer. The view of the mountains is spectacular. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food offered. Something for everyone. We did bring our own ketchup and salad dressing which came in handy. We met a lot of the "regulars" there, who were very friendly and helpful. I was glad that there were other kids that week as I had read it is usually an older crowd. We went out for dinner to the Ferlin restaurant in Marea. Apparently it is owned by the chef at the Farallon. 3 appetizers, two lobster dinners, a pork steak dinner, 4 beers there and 2 to go for $26. Wow!! It is such a cute little place and extremely clean. Dinner was delicious! We enjoyed Cayo Blanco very much. There is not a lot of night life, but that was fine for us. The number of rooms in this hotel allows you to get to know almost everyone that is staying there. We made so many new friends and had such a great time! We couldn't believe what a great deal this hotel was and would go back in a minute!
