  • October 2013
We had a cabana at the marea del portillo booked, but when we arrived, it was closed. So we were in the farallon building. Room was very clean -, although the decor was already a few years more bad than right, survived. We were in the quieter wing away from the pool with 4 floors. The first week only 1/4 and as we left about half (off-season) Internet available in the hotel. Average age was at about 55-60 years, although some groups of young people was to be met. 95% canadians - many of them regular guests; 1 dozen german ... and counted 4 people from austria. read hotel review

    There was 1 main restaurant and a snack bar at the pool, where one at noon burger, hot dog and chips. Furthermore, there was a bar in the hotel, from 15 hours -23 hours open. In the pool was also a bar integrated. Beach bar from morning until late into the night. We were very satisfied with the food - there was a lot of vegetables and different varieties of rice, potatoes, beans, and so on. Meat as beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, pork, fish, prawns, crab and pasta were always again on the buffet. Salads, ice cream and sweet as well. Food was well seasoned and meat never tough. Many freshly squeezed juices as pineapple, mango, guava and papaya etc. If you have a bit later for breakfast went, the buffet was usually geplündert, but please refilled. A disadvantage was, no bottle of water with on the room, but we organised a bottle and they left the breakfast with water refill.

    Sport and pool weren't used by us. Entertainment was offered. In the evening was from about 21 hours -10:15 p. m. music and dancing. The beach chairs at the beach were partly broken cushions not available. Umbrellas protected 2 pool chairs not suffice; we under the palm trees put. Beach towels were the maids and to change. Showers and toilet's were in the beach bar. We always asked, where are the whole tourists, since we a 3 kilometer beach most of the time for us. Now - there were very many, the spent the entire holiday by the pool and didn't walk to.

    To the beach it was a bit tiring for my partner with artificial hips, as about 150 metres until then (where also the beach bar was); of which 65 steps. The beach section in front of the farallon was unfortunately full of seaweed, so once again, about 400 meters toward the sister hotel, there was pure sand. In the hotel itself there was a shop, but not a lot of choice. Local cigarettes, alcohol and other beverages. Otherwise only knick-knacks - no real souvenirs. In the next town pilon you had more possibilities - distance about 13 kilometer. we had our taxi for 2 hours to 15 cuc. In the hotel you could book excursions. For example a day trip including lunch to santiago de cuba to 150 cuc per person! Distance about 4-4.5 hours by car along the beautiful coast. Very adventurous, since the road before 7 years ago by hurricane dennis partly destroyed and repairs take longer ☺ We had a guide named bernardo with a four-wheel car booked. The hotel marea del portillo, there was a container, where the intermediary leonardo is accommodated - speaks good german. We have a 2 day trip to santiago were made, with a night at the privatzimmer in santiago including breakfast and dinner at 217 cuc for us both! Our guide was the best thing - he gave us on the way back from santiago recommended inland over the city were slightly lacking (worth seeing) and the sierra mästra to drive. Very, very recommended - one comes from astonished not want to leave. Was however only with a four-wheel to navigate.
