Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba. 

Overview
Exclusive to Sunwing and located on the foothills of the Sierra Maestra mountains, this hotel is excellent for those who want to enjoy the sea and surrounding mountains. A long-time Canadian favourite!
 
Location: Beachfront, 90 minutes from the Manzanillo International Airport.

My family and I booked a tour to Sierra Maestra Mountains to see Castro's Headquarters. Because we had to wake up so early we did not have breakfast at the hotel and we were told that breakfast would be provided for us in the bus. Unfortunately something didn't work and breakfast was not provided to us. The Sunwing manager Elena compensated us with two free trips to Cayo Blanco island - a beautiful place. We appreciate this gesture of sincere customer service.

Perfect place

Marea del Portillo has one of the highest returnee rates in Cuba. There is lots of things to do, including the new private horseback riding business located at the front of the hotel. Talk to Aristico and get a group ridea nywhere you want to go.

A Honest Review - Club Amigo Marea del Portillo & Farallon

Arrived on time at Manzanillo airport via Sunwing. Very good flight.  Bus trip from airport to resort was 1 hr and 40 min.   Road is a bit rough as others have said but it was a good highway coach bus with a washroom.   Check in was quick and efficient.  Restaurant was opened late for our arrival.    I was put in room 136.  It was dated but Clean with no issues.  As was the entire Marea del Portillo resort.  The next morning I purchased the VIP (88 CUC)  and very happy I did. After breakfast I walked up the hill to the sister resort Faralon ( you have full access to both resorts) and I found the i liked the Faralon more and moved hotels. Thank you to Olga and Dilaine for making this happen.  The view of the Sierra mountains from the Faralon are breathtaking.  It is a 4-5 min walk from the lobby to the beach so if walking is an issue for you, stay at the Marea.  This is my 8th time to Cuba in 10 years of winter travel and i have never been to the same resort twice but I will be booking this resort again for my February 2017 getaway.  I found the food on the resort to be good.  I did both a la cartes and they were very good.  And speaking of food, just off the resort in the village of Marea (about 4-5 km away) is the just opened restaurtant called Dany's.  I went there 3 times as IT WAS SO GOOD.  See my full review of Dany's with menu and pictures in the restaurant review section of trip advisor.  I would give this resort a 4 out of 5 rating according to my 10 years of winter travel. I have yet to see / stay at 5 star in Cuba but haved stayed at 5 star resorts on other Caribean islands and i have no problem giving this hidden gem of a resort 4 stars.  See my pics and feel free to ask me any questions.
