Iberostar Cayo Coco
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We visited this resort by walking down the beach from the resort that we were staying at, which was right next-door, the Sol Cayo Coco. This resort only operates as the Iberostar Mojito. If you look at a map of the Mojito resort, you will still see the map of the Iberostar Cayo Coco marked on it, but when you walk by that section, it is fenced off overgrown and abandoned. We asked staff if there were any plans to re-open that section, and unfortunately, due to lack of funding and the extensive repairs that would now be needed due to deterioration by weather and salt water, it most likely will remain permanently closed.Sorry folks!
This was an impromptu trip. We found a deal and booked immediately after reading great reviews. Granted you can't blame poor weather and poor guests on resort. But you can them for blame poor cleanliness of room, Unkept beaches, boring food and plain disappointment. Our room was filthy. Pictures were very misleading. I slept fully clothed each day that I was there. Their idea of cleaning was beyond my understanding. The beach was nice the first day my friend and I were there but that was it. Everyday till me left it got more and more impossible to get to the water as the seagrass, seaweed and garbage piled up. I wish I had pictures to prove this atrocity. Usually I would be kinder but I paid for relaxation and that is not what I got at all. Half the staff was great. The other half would harrass me, wanting more than just friendly conversation. We made friends with one staff member who would make us burgers for lunch and dinner because everything else was just too close to feeling like food poisoning. The entertainment was not kid friendly. Every night the games had some sexual nuances that made me even uncomfortable. I really just didn't enjoy my time. I would never come back to give it a try. Pay more money and stay somewhere worth the while. OH and also we almost missed our flight because they didn't schedule a bus for us. People who had late flights with us we put on an earlier bus making them wait in the airport for 4 plus hours. Yea.. never again.
I got salmonela...... was very sick for about 2 wks. Test result came in and am on antibiotics Please be careful on the food, only eat what is cooked. Even salads can be contaminated per my Doctor. It was my 3rd time there, the entertainement is great, just enough, variety in food was lower than the previous visits I had made. It was the week where Cubans can stay at resorts as well. The location could use a little revamp in renovations as I noticed some work on my last visit that should have been done by now was not done upon my recent visit. Pool should be available now, they drained the larger of the 2 pools to repair or refresh. Did not see the end result during my stay. The beach wonderful, water 85 most likely in the afternoon. Tropical fish are where there are rock deposits (about 4 from memory). Easy checkin and checkout, cleaning in the room was excellent.
Ok hotel food ok but very boring. staff give good service only when you tip first don't think I would return .Beach was nice Mosquitos a nightmare but not hotels fault. Management came round on our holiday to do inspection for the two days they came the hotel was fantastic soon as they left it went back to the way it had been what a let down . Entertainment staff worked so hard
My 3 girl friends and I traveled to Cayo Coco last week for a 7 day holiday. I had never been to Cuba before and wasn't sure what to expect....the Iberostar resort was great! The staff were pleasant and the food was actually pretty great. The beach on the resort wasn't great, not a lot of sand, but just a 5 min bus ride away was playa pilar beach which was amazing!!! The girls and I booked out a paddle boat and toured around on the hottest day finding a bunch of starfish and getting some pictures with them. It was a great relaxing week. We did have an issue with the air conditioning not working in one of our rooms and the technician wasn't very fast responding to our multiple calls to come try to fix it. Initially, when he finally DID show up, he tried saying the room was so hot because we had the doors open even though there was an error code on the air conditioning panel. With the room temperature at 28 degrees we obviously had the doors open trying to cool it down duh. When they finally determined the air conditioning couldn't be fixed they tried to move the 2 girls staying in that room to another building halfway across the resort, which wasn't happening. I booked two rooms side by side so we could all enjoy our holiday together. The front desk man named Did, after hearing me say that if they were moving to another building then he would be moving all of us so we were together, finally just upgraded their room so that we were able to stay on the same floor in our original building. Thank you Did. The pools were smaller but great. We all played some pool volleyball with the entertainer which was a lot of fun. My only issue with the pool area would be the towels. The towel hut opened after 9 and never had any towels when we were trying to swap out our wet towels. Close to the end of the trip they received a shipment of new blue towels to rectify the shortage they had though. Another problem area would be the internet. First of all we had to pay for it. 1.50 pesos for an hour and it's a code and password of about 10 numbers for each. And if you didn't log off then it kept eating your time, waste of money. A couple times the internet just wasn't working at all and we often got booted off line. Frustrating all around. I understand we are on holiday and shouldn't be online constantly, but of course we wanted to keep in touch with our kids and husbands. All in all we had a fabulous time. I actually wish that I'd taken my kids here instead of The resort in Punta Cana in February. I will definitely be returning to Cuba, and likely will look to rebook at this resort!
