Marea Del Portillo
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
A beautiful location with choice of pool or ocean for swimming. Staff and guests are friendly and welcoming, most guests are repeat visitors. Numerous activities. Safe enough that single women go there to stay without worry.
I have been going to this resort since it first opened in 1995. I find it the perfect p,ace for relaxation and fun in the sun. While the resort is not for many travelers, for those who want peace and quiet this is the place to go. The locals are very friendly and most will nite you in for a home cooked meal. The food in general is not the best but for Cuba I find it very good. ( I am not there for the food)The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean. I look forward to returning in January 2017
Went to marea del portillo nov. 16-23 2016. Specifically for diving. They wouldnt take us out to go diving. They said that they didn't have any gas. They finally took us out for a dive on the last day. We had to hitch a ride with another excursion. It tokk 4.5 hours to do one dive. The visibility was very poor on the dive. The dive master got too far ahead of us and lost us. We looked around and were going to go up but luckily we were under the boat so we stayed until we used our air. The dive maater had gotten back on the boat because he was cold. Wow!!! The resort was fine but would absolutely not recommend it for diving.
The hotel is small and in the middle of nowhere. We arrived at 11pm or around that time, and there were no meals for us to eat except ham and cheese sandwiches and barely enough fries I was pissed off at that. I wanted to leave but to where? We were in the middle of nowhere. I couldn't stomach any of the food on the first day except for eggs. I slowly but surely started to deal with it and got used to eating spaghetti, and fish for lunch and dinner. The people and staff are really friendly and mean no harm. It was an eye opener because everyone is so poor and really just doing there best to accommodate you. The washrooms weren't the biggest and the showers aren't super clean and modern, but they work (shower with your slippers). I had a minor case of diarrhea. I love my food so if you want lavish meals, don't save to come here. I did the sunset cruise which was decent and I went to a private island called cayo blanco for 2 days (not nights), it was relaxing and you can swim there but bring water shoes, cause you can get stung. They do a big bbq at cayo blanco and that sands are white and waters blue. The beach at the hotel isn't the greatest, there isn't much furniture to lay on, there old and gross. The grass is high and there was seaweed everywhere, they had started to clean it up though after like our 4th day. You can still swim but its just not a desirable beach. The views are amazing of the mountains though. We took a tour of Pilon at night to experience the night life , it was scary at first but was told the Cubans there are safe. They encourage you to leave the resort cause everyone is so nice. A young boy showed us around the very small town. We also went to
I payed to go to this hotel and the bus took a sharp left turn before getting to the hotel I payed for and we got dropped at the liquor motel essentially and the food was very bad I could only eat the soup really then when the last day came I realized all the pepper wasn't pepper it was fruit flys probably are 500 fruit flys.. sorta funny looking back
