Manzanillo, Cuba

The nicer Hotel is Farallon Del Caribe, up the hill from Marea. Marea didn't have a swim-up bar and has quite a small pool. The food at Farallon was the best I have ever had in Cuba. Gained 10 lbs in the week we were there. Beach was a bit of a disappointment. Instead of an exotic black beach, it was just regular brown sand. Can't recall the distance from the airport, but the ride is always drinks and a tour guide.

Sorry - I'm late replying, but it's a lovely area. I stayed at the Farallon in 2005. It's south & was warmer than the other places I've stayed at in January. It's a lovely area and the mountains are great. The beach is not typical white sand, or good for snorkelling, but there is a good day trip to a local cay that is worth doing.

They were hit quite hard by the hurricane.

People seem to love whichever hotel they stay in first, some love the Marea & wouldn't switch - others the Farallon.

There is a good website - for information purposes only:

Enjoy your holiday.
