This is my second time in Cayo coco and it was honestly the best experience. The staff is so wonderful there, I felt at home. The food was actually very good, had no problems at all, the Japanese was my favourite a la carte. The gym would've been my only issue, most of the equipment was broken and they only had heavy weights (50lbs +) They had an amazing Zumba instructor named Leo, made it so much fun and had an amazing workout. The DJ at the pool bar, Miguel was also awesome! He Always had the best songs playing and got everyone up and dancing! No complains at all! In the lobby bar, Yelenda I believe her name was is such an amazing server along with George "Hakuna Mata" bartender. Drinks were delicious and entertainment was awesome! There is a guy named Chocolate and he was the best entertainer. If you watch any of the shows he makes it live! The excursions were amazing highly recommend the snorkelling. The lobster dinner was to die for you and the experience was mesmerizing. Rooms were clean never had an issue, always stocked with towels. I would recommend Hotel Playa Coco to anyone. I'm already courting down the days till I go back! Oh and lately, the beach was breath taking. One of the nicest beaches I have seen in my life. And the pool entertainment made my vacation so much more fun! I can't wait to go back!
We visited Hotel Playa from Jan 6 - Jan 13, 2017. The weather was sunny the first 2 days and then windy the rest of the week. The resort was very nice, although there is construction going on right now. The food tasted good at the buffet and tasted even better at the A La Carts. The service at the buffet can be slow when you're waiting in line for the grill though. The beach and pool area were both clean. The actual hotel room was nice as well. I've stayed in Varadero, and compared to there the rooms were 10x better. They did not feel that damp, the maids cleaned your room and always gave you fresh bath towels when you put your dirty ones in the tub. They don't change your bedsheets unless you specifically ask them to though. The best thing about the resort was the staff. I cannot stress that enough. Every single one of them are SO friendly, kind, happy and caring. The front desk ladies, the bar tenders, the entertainers, the waitresses, the chefs, everyone. Compared to Varadero, they were much more friendly and engaged. I'd like to specifically thank and say that these people went above and beyond and I now consider them friends. Dwayne (Duayns), Luigi, Chocolate, Yelegny, Soleidy, Mike (bartender), Alex (bartender), and so many more. Bring lotsssss of bug spray, anti itch, and benedryl. They have these little tiny, white flies that will bite you and you don't feel it or see it until the next morning when you have a bump and are itchy. Before you go, go to Dollarama and buy anything and everything for tips. Panty hose, elastics, hair clips, hats, shirts, shorts, brushes, tooth paste, tooth brush, deodorant, etc. When we give them Convertible Peso and they go to change it to the real Peso, they only get 10% of the value. So if they convert $1 they only get to keep 10 cents. After talking with some of the staff, they say its very appreciated when they receive the actual items because then they do not have to go out and buy it.
We were there from January 6 -13th. ..First time to Cuba and we were very excited to check it out. I'll try to be brief but there are a few things that may help our fellow travelers. ..We decided to take a cab from the airport to our hotel after reading a tip here. ..no regrets there. ..we were at our hotel 15 minutes after clearing customs and arrived at the front desk before anyone else. We simply asked nicely and were rewarded with an ocean view room 4000 block 3rd floor ...amazing! The cab was a little pricey at 25 cuc as there never seemed to be a lineup at check in as people arrived in groups of 4 to 10 off the bus. ..would have been fine either way but we didn't want to be sandwiched in another metal can full of people after our flight. ...Our room was clean and well kept with a few glitches. ..The mattress was hard and springy....took some getting used to. .Our housekeeper "Yoanis " was great. ..we left her a small tip and some dollar store toiletries every day and she made sure our bed was made all fancy and we had bottled water and replenished pop in our fridge daily....The food was good throughout the resort. ..The buffet at breakfast had plenty of options and eggs or omelets cooked to order along with a waffle and pancake station and fresh baked bread to die for. .The lunch buffet had lots of different salads, cold cuts and grilled meats and ham etc. We also had burgers and hot dogs at the poolside bbq...There is also a great bbq at the beach...The dinner buffet was fine as well but you do need to get a little creative with choices and combinations to avoid repetition. ..The Japanese a la carte was great and the Italian was fine too. ..you will not go hungry at this resort. ..The main pool was fabulous and the bartending staff was amazing and spoke very good English. ..gave us good insight into cuban life. ..the beach was breathtaking. ..Don't forget to hit the ice cream bar and try one of Alianis's special evening ice cream for grown ups! !!Overall we had a wonderful time and will definitely return to this amazing place! !Please remember to tip the hardworking staff here. ..A peso or two goes a long way and means so much to them....We can't wait to return to the hotel playa coco! ! Cheers
Fourth time to this resort. I am very aware of mosquitos being present around the resort especially at dusk and night time, so I limit my time outside then and cover myself with bug cream.This time I was literally bit hundred of times on both lower legs on my third day. This was during the day, on the beach. Never saw the fleas, extremely tiny. Unbelievably itchy .Still have marks on my legs one month after returning. It is the beach and water I love, so this made my time there much less enjoyable.
My partner and I visited from December 25th to January 8th. The hotel was okay and we know what to expect from Cuba, if you are a picky person this is NOT the place for you. Cuba is not the place for you! A lot of people complain about the rooms, I could never understand that! Did you come to Cuba to be in a room? The one thing I would recommend to any one visiting this hotel is to bring your own pillow. Bring pillows! My partner and I spent all of our time at the beach, and it was beautiful! 😍 Not the pool! The beach! We ate everyday, three meals a day. Yoandys the waiter at the Italian, Japanese and sea food restaurant was amazing, he truly made our trip a great experience. Michele (Italian entertainer) and Black Diamond were very friendly, the only two guys who truly love their job. I don't know who Luigi is even though we were there for two weeks! And the staff kept introducing the most famous guy on the Internet "Minion" as the best entertainer. Be aware! Minion will only talk to you if he thinks he can get something from you. Specially a Canadian citizenship! I'm Latina and Spanish is my first language, I guess sometimes people don't realize someone can understand what they are saying. Young Canadians were embarrassing to watch! I can't believe how they behaved! Shame on you parents! Shame on you! I did complained about the music, I can't listen to Reggeton all day long and it was LOUD! I felt really bad for the older guests. It was bad!
