We just returned from a 9 day vacation at the Iberostar Daiquiri Cayo Coco .Unfortunately, my wife was injured getting off the airplane in Cuba by twisting her knee. We were taken to the clinic right off the plane and our first picture in Cuba was an x-ray of my wifes knee. When we arrived to Iberostar Daiquiri a wheelchair was ready and waiting in the lobby for us. The staff also immediately rebooked us to the handicap room on the grand level. The Room 3102 was very clean and at all times there was hot water.The staff is absolutely amazing, they were all very polite and were eager to help us with everything we needed.We would like to thank Yudenia from the gest service , She was always asking if we needed any help and was very quick to help with any requests. It made our stay that much more memorable even with my wife’s injuryThe Bar staff was very hard working and always had a smile on their face. The gardeners were very friendly and were always making beautiful things with the greenery. Food was OK, nothing to complain about.The beach is beautiful...great for swimming, lounging, or walking. Watching the kite-surfers just east of the resort was always fun.
Well for my taste this hotel is one of the best. It has bank near by there is no need to go far to have exchange rate. Hotel provides exchange as well but bank usually give a bit more . FOOD buffet excellent cant complaint. I am a bit concern about the time we should check in most of the hotels check in time is 2 pm but our checkin time is 4pm because other guests still in the room and postpone their check out time. So we have to wait until they are gone and the room maid finished the room. But its still ok for us not a big deal because we have no kids but imagine those with 2 kids or more after early flights must have been exhaused. Be prepared from april to july probably the hotel will be fully booked. We are not coming on april no more haha. Staffs were always nice and friendly, we hope it will stay the same all the time. Beach beds plenty are empty but towels on it. But we dont need that since it was so windy i couldnt stand the sands getting to my face. We come, sit on the sand, swim, eat and go back to room or lobby to read and repeat so hell we no need beachbeds. Overall our vacation was amazing. THANKYOU IBEROSTAR DAIQUIRI. KEEP YOUR QUALITY AT TOP.
This was my first time in Cayo Coco and I absolutely loved it! such a beautiful place! We chose the iberostar because we have stayed at a few other iberostars in puerto plata, punta cana and varadero. We were a bit iffy on trying a much smaller resort, but we found is more enjoyable as we got to know the staff really well and met some amazing new friends.check in:- check in went smooth, very friendly service. we had to wait for our room to be ready, once it was ready it wasn't what we requested. The front desk accommodated us with a much better room. Room:- we stayed in the "Granma" building on ground floor which we didn't mind. - The room was very clean, however the beds were not very comfortable:( - the shower rod was only hung up with fishing line which I found very odd for an Iberostar chain.- We found it very difficult on a triple occupancy with the amenities, we only had one bottle of water between three of us. we had to hide a bottle to be able to receive more. Bring your own empty bottles with you to get filled up at the lobby bar.- Not enough towels and toilet paper; so bring extra toilet paper and towels with you.- most days our room was clean at a reasonable time but some days we had to go to guest services to let them know that our room wasnt done.Grounds:-I wouldn't call the grounds immaculate they are definitely in dire need of a facelift. a few ponds would be nice to add around the buildings. overall the resort grounds were nice.- loved the pool, the waterfalls going up to the swim up bar is really nice. The pool was kept very clean. More Palapas are needed around the pool, if you want one you have to get up early to reserve. - the beach was nice, however we were caught in a week of very high winds; it wasn't pleasant lying on the beach with sand beating off your face. we spent most of our time in the pool. - disappointed that there is not a separate beach bar directly on the beach, the beach is almost too wide. -more palapas needed on the beach as well. Food/Drinks:- the food wasn't the best but definitely much better than Varadero. - There wasn't much of a selection, but I am a very picky eater so I lived on fries, pizza and bread for a week lol - we did the Italian a la carte which was ok, I had Margarita pizza. it was too windy to enjoy the atmosphere, it would be better if it was enclosed. - mexican a la carte was really good; we had chicken fajitas- no late night snacks only sandwhiches by the lobby bar. - the drinks were really good; they can make you anything you ask for. Sex on the beach is my favorite drink. They ran out of juice a few times. - The lobby bar had the best drinks:)Staff:-The staff were absolutely amazing, that is the major reason as to why i will be returning. - Jorge in the towel hut was very friendly, he told us to come back in july as the weather will be even hotter. ( there were nights that we were froze which was strange for carribean weather)- The animation team were fantastic keeping guests busy with activities (darts, balloon toss, crazy game; loved the foam party. would have been nice to have a night beach party.- Manuel and Liovani in the lobby bar truly made our trip memorable! They all work so hard! There was one girl that worked overnight i forget her name she always had a smile on her face. - There wasn't much to do at night except the shows which we did not go to because they are all the same at every Iberostar. The disco after the show didn't play good music. We spent most of our time hanging out by the lobby bar and chatting with the bar tenders and new friends. Overall, we enjoyed our stay! Don't expect a fancy Iberostar because it is not on par with an iberostar in dominican. it's a great resort if you enjoy the small atmosphere to get to know people. But if you are a very picky eater and want more fancy then I suggest Iberostar Bavaro in Punta Cana. Hoping to go back in early July or August can't wait!
I just came back from this beautiful resort yesterday, stayed April 22-26. I've been to resorts in Jamaica, Dominican Republic , barbados, Bahamas, and I have to say iberostar daiquiri in Cayo Guillermo Cuba was by far my favorite and most memorable so far. Upon entering we checked in quickly with the other west jet guests and was pleased that are rooms were ready. The rooms were upper floor rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors in the Santiago de Cuba villas. Rooms were clean, lots of hot water and stocked fridge. We met our maid who was very nice, we made sure to tip and give gifts for her. We ate at the buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner, food was good, but the waiters and waitresses were excellent. The resort is beautiful with tons of coconut and palm trees, colourful buildings, and flowers. The beach is stunning extra wide, clear blue water, 2 boardwalks that go far out in the water, lots of fish to see. In the mornings you feel like your on a private beach, since fewer resorts in this area. Entertainment was live music in lobby and stage shows in the theatre from 9:30-10:30pm which was very good. For excursions we did the $5cuc bus to playa pillar beach which was so amazing the most blue and clear waters to see. The last and most important reason why I will return to this resort and to Cuba is the people. The people at this resort are the most kind and friendly people I have ever seen, always smiling and saying hello. the women (waitresses) are absolutely beautiful and helpful, they would remember orders without writing it down, amazing. One waitress was super amazing I wish I got her name (pony tail that went up then down, slim, worked evenings). These people are incredibly hardworking from the gardeners to the maids. I loved our waiters and waitresses from breakfast, lunch and dinner they would greet you like family. I will definitely return to this resort thank you Iberostar daiquiri and Cuba.
We stayed at this resort from April 19-26. We found it comparable to a 3.5 star resort in Mexico. We stayed in a ground floor superior room. We liked the patio and garden views. We found it peaceful as our view was of greenery and at times horses would pass by. The beds were ok but the bed spreads were stained. The bathroom was nicely updated and the shower water was always hot. The shower has a rain shower head and a detachable shower head that provided a lot of pressure. Our maid was very friendly and the mini fridge was stocked every 2 days. We found the other staff to be stand offish and didn't get a fun warm vibe from them. The pools were nice and we always found loungers. However we didn't get towels for 2 days as the towel hut was very low on clean towels. We ended up buying towels. I would recommend bringing your own beach towels. The beach at the resort was long and beautiful. The water was clear and warm. We walked along the beach in the mornings to see the kite surfers and to walk with our toes in the surf. The food was edible. It wasn't spectacular but it wasn't horrible either. There was always plenty of meats, cheese, fruit, breads, rice, beans, and desserts. The Cuban restaurant was great. We went on two excursions. We went on the catamaran snorkeling trip and we really enjoyed it. We also spent 2 days at pilar beach which is a short bus ride away. We paid 2 pesos each for a lounger under a palapa and it was well worth it. Pilar is the most beautiful beach in Cuba. The water and sand are clear, soft, and wonderful. We also went to Moron, Ciego de Avila, the crocodile farm, and the mangroves. This day trip was a great way to experience Cuba and see the towns. We enjoyed our trip and have great memories. We did not fall in love with it though and will be trying out other resorts in the future.
