We had a lovely time at the hotel we only stayed at the hotel for 5 days before we were evacuated to another hotel due to hurricane irma i hope the hotel didnt take too much damage because it was lovely. hotel room had lots of space and bathroom was one of the best i ever had. food you didnt have big amounts but there was always something for somebody. pool was beautiful only went to the one with the swim up bar there was another just by it with a basketball hoop. beach was beautiful sea you had seaweed but didnt bother me and they do have wifi but you had to pay for it. 1.50 cuban money for an hour internet i would go back in future but not soon because of the hurricane
We had our first visit to Cuba and stayed at Iberostar Daiquiri in Cayo Guillermo, the hotel was a little run down but very picturesque and with the rooms being of reasonable standard. The themed restaurants had very good quality food, the main restaurant was a little repetitive and with not a big choice of different foods, however it didn't spoil our stay here as we expected this with an all inclusive holiday. The one negative was that after day 2 the main hotel bar Daiquiri ran out of mint ( so no national drink Mojito on the menu) also they ran out of tonic, however we were able to purchase bottles of tonic from one of the shops on site at our own expense. The beach was amazing and in was like bathing in a warm bath in the sea. The hotel entertainment was quite professional compared to other holiday resorts we've been to over the years. On one occasion I reported a group by the pool bar as they thought it was acceptable to place their giant speaker on the bar and blast our their crap music, the hotel staff reacted straight away and dealt with the culprits. Overhaul we both enjoyed our holiday here in Cuba and would definitely recommend to friends and family 🙂👍
We just came back from a week from this fabulous hotel. We went on the last week of August. For the 1st time we really felt that 1 week was just not enough. The hotel rooms were ok, to us it needed a lick of paint, the room was sufficiently big enough, lovely sea views, bathroom was basic but big but most importantly the maids cleaned it everyday. The food in our opinion was excellent. We've been to several all inclusive hotel packages but this one tops it all. Cannot understand some reviews saying that the food was not good they are definitely not talking about the same hotel or it must be people that only eat fast food (chips, nuggets, burgers and pizza) all day, everyday. Which they did have but during the day. So I don't understand those complaints they are just being pecky. Everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner the selection of food, fruit and desserts was great. Loved their tropical fruit especially the papaya and mango. The waitresses and chefs were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The night entertainment was very good and professional. You could see they enjoyed what they did. The beach was amazing, the sea water was very warm and clear and beautiful white sands, we couldn't ask for more. While we were there we did the Catamaran day event which was worth every penny, excellent. The hotel resort is also close to the airport approximately 45 minute drive. Also the inbound and outbound flights of Thomas Cook were great, cannot complain, even the food was good. If you want a relaxing and calm holiday with great quality this is definitely the place to go to, if you are looking for a busy, lively holiday then the Cayo's are not the holiday resorts to go to. The only negative aspect of the holiday is the mosquitos, But we were warned and did try to be prepared but the reality Cuba is in the the tropics so there will be mosquitos and they will bite. We were terribly bitten but it will not stop us from going there again. We will definitely be returning and recommended 100%.
On arrival at the hotel we really didn't know what to expect due to the mixed reviews. Met with a warm greeting from the reception staff, given directions and a map of the hotel. A simple 2 nibute walk and we were at our accommodation block (Guardalavaca) ground floor room with a direct seaview, rooms are small and functional, clean and bright and apart from a lack of drawers for clothes the room was more than adequate.Whilst we were there we never sat around the pool but preffered to sit down on the beach, and what an absolute stunning beach. Obviously being on the Atlantic coast there is some seaweed at times, but this was cleared up every morning so never an issue. Beach bar is very well placed and less than a 2 minute walk wherever you are on the beach.The food is well above average (i am an ex chef) All the buffet dishes are obviously very well thought out and on top of this there are 4 cooking stations grilling whilst you wait. Breakfast was amazing (try the chorizo if there is any left) I waited and had a beautiful fresh omelette most mornings. Lunch and dinner usually has a choice of meat, fish, pasta pizza plus all the buffet. On certain nights they do show cooking like Fajitas, Sushi etc. Restaurant clean and only once in 14 days was it so busy we had to wait for a table. Ate at the Mexican and Cuban, again no complaints there.Although we didn't have children there were a lot of families and seemed an ample amount for the children to do. the evening entertainment was good, and the two local bands that usually came in and played for the customers were amazing. Spent most evenings in the lobby bar, service always with a massive smile from all the barstaff.There is a shop, gift shops and obviously the rum and cigar shop on site, plus a bank in the grounds open on weekdays 9-3 The resort is small spread out over cleverly so you are not too far from anywhere. The staff are utterly lovely, and a beautiful place to unwind. We will most certainly be going back next year if at all possibleDon't forget to take more Mozzie repellant and factor 50 than you need!!!
I visited this hotel with my family. We checked into the hotel and was allocated are rooms which we had three of. Upon entering the room I can only say how disappointed we were The wardrobe door was hanging off and the shower curtain was held up with a piece of wire. On checking the other rooms they were as bad. After the long flight we decided to have something to eat and then sort alternative rooms out the following day.The following morning we went for Breakfast the bacon was cold as was most of the the foods. I went to visit the Thomas Cook representative Maria who was extremely helpful and arranged for us to move to superior rooms unfortunately these were no better. On top of the problems with the rooms, food I was then advised there were no pool towels available and they didn't know when we would be able to get any. We were a family of six and in the brochure it stated pool towels would be provided so none of us had brought towels. This was probably the final straw and I arranged a meeting with Maria for the following morning.I advised Maria that we wished to be moved as this hotel was not up to the Iberostar standards. Eventually after a lot of talking we were moved to the Iberostar Playa Pilar which was fantastic (see review)There was not only our family which moved there were two other English families and many people were complaining.This hotel could be amazing as the beach is stunning but the hotel needs a complete overhaul I don't expect to go to a 4* hotel and wardrobe doors are hanging off.
