- All Inclusive Features
OverviewAn intimate setting for those who enjoy quiet and¬†beautiful surroundings.
Location: Hillside, 80 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from the town of Chivirico.
Truly great staff and manager Eddie is awesome. Good food, Lovely and tranquil atmosphere. Great place for a very quiet, relaxing vacation. Small resort, so you will have opportunity to get to know the staff and some other fellow travellers. Mostly quiet, book-reading or hiking/cycling folks, or seniors who are interesting to meet and who enjoy this truly intimate setting. View of mountains and sea all around is lovely. Nice little restaurant at the bottom of the mountain is great if you need a change of scenery. Evenings great musicians come up from the village to sing during dinner. The beauty of eating outside and listening to local Cuban music with no amplification is truly heavenly! NOT a party place, not suitable for those who need any activities to be provided or looking for any nightlife. One little backyard-sized pool, one small 8' bar and one small dining room. 34 rooms in 5 one-storey blocks. Period. The whole resort sits on maybe 2 acres total at the top of the little mountain. Cozy but not very private outside of room.Steep climb down nearly 300 cement stairs to the very small beach with lots of big rocks scattered in the water, frequent red flags and strong current/undertow. Some little tide pools to sit in are quite nice. Cozy beach bar, sand and some trees. Some folks manage to snorkel a bit, but this beach has some really serious limitations for swimmers. Not a long beach for walking/strolling either.Super steep hill down to the village, means being very mobile/fit or arranging a cab for 3CUC each way. Not anything at all for tourists in that village, though it can be nice to walk around and see how the Cuban people live. Rooms are quite nice but mattresses a bit hard or lumpy. Sometimes the water goes off, sometimes for hours for even a few days at a time and guests flush their toilets with water bucketed from the pool. Staff do their best with repairs but infrastructure has issues. A place ONLY for easy-going and adaptable travellers!This is the kind of place you either love and find charming and endearing, or you are bored, dissatisfied, disappointed and swear never to return to again. Not much reaction in the middle it seems. So consider carefully before booking here. It really isn't for everyone.
It is my third visit to Brisas Los Galeones; twice solo once with my wife. There is nothing like it because of guaranteed seclusion as a result its location and ease of access to its more bustling sister resort, Brisas Sierra Mar and the charming village of Chivirico. BLG is for travelers, less for tourists, who like peace and quiet in a wonderful setting. I am returning next week for another two week stay.
Disappointed to find we were booked into Brisas Sierra Mar a sister hotel some distance away. We stayed there last year, checked out Los Galeones and determined to come there this year to enjoy some peace and quiet. They had no record of our booking and had no rooms available.
We enjoyed our stay at Los Galeones. This 30i(sh) room hotel is old but clean, located on top of a hill overlooking the ocean or a Bay on 3 of the 4 sides. It appeared to me that all rooms had a view of the ocean. I was in room 104, it is located over the driveway coming up to the resort, it was a very quiet spot with a very nice view. (see my pictures from the balcony). Staff members were great; service was excellent. Food Breakfast is good. a selection of fruit, cheese, cold cuts, bacon/sausage, eggs, toast etc, with a cook for omelets made from your selection of ingredients. Lunch is great! A-la-carte at the restaurant or around the pool area. good selection, everything I tried was tasty. Lunch is also served at the beach bar (check my 'beach' section) Supper is served a-la-carte either in the dining room or our in the pool area, similar to lunch. Everything I ordered was delicious!Beachgoing down the 290 steps to the beach is worth the walk. beautiful spot, very quiet and never busy at all. there is a beach bar here that serves drinks (including bottled beer) and also serves lunch. Lunch here is delicious, Meat (chicken, porc, ribs) cooked over a wood fire grill. Delicious BBQ is served at 1pm. The Bad-bathroom was very dated with broken tiles and various damaged items, shower head was barely able to shoot water due to calcium build up. I don't consider myself picky by any means, but this bathroom was a let down. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture. I was in room 104-The water supply comes from the small town near the hotel. there was a problem at the pumping station, we went 2/7 days with absolutely no running water at all. If it wasn't for the washroom and the lack of water for 2 days I would have definitely given this place a 5/5. We paid 688$ all in and it was definitely worth it
Hotel is quiet, on the top of a hill, be advised that there are 300 stairs down to the beach.Food is great! Staff is VERY FRIENDLY!Not much for tourists to do in town. Perfect to relax and enjoy the sun and beach!
