I have been to Cuba over 25 times 18 times in past 4 years so have seen lots!!I would say average resort, rooms were clean and basic more than sufficient, food was pretty good no complaints.Beach was great for walking and swimming pools were fine loved the foam party.The mosquitos were terrible, I got my fair share of bites others in our party were literally eaten alive, I think the time of year being June and the stagnant water around the resort made it an ideal place for them.Had no issues with room towels or beach towels, maids were pretty good.My safe didn't work and they tried to charge me for it but did get it resolved. There wasn't much entertainment prior to the show which could be improved just a bit of music would be nice.
Coach driver, staff and cleaners were all very pleasant and went out of their way to help you. It felt like PARADISE which lead on to the beach, the sand there is so soft and almost white, you could walk along it with no shoes on, unlike some other places. Beautiful to walk around and explore. Rooms were very clean and the food was really nice. There was a pool bar and next to it there was entertainment every day, and also shows of a night, Cuban dancing, magician (was actually really good). The maid each day when she had cleaned the rooms would leave the towels in some design. The people there worked really hard and the customer service was fantastic. The best part of my experience was the second day when we went snorkelling on the beach front. A man called Joe took us out into the second largest coral reef in the world, I am still take back by how beautiful the fish and the whole experience was. He was such a good tour guide we actually went back the next day, he had sorted a deal out for us where we could go even further back, snorkel for longer and then go to one of the small twin islands facing the coast- all for 5 Cuban dollars more. The previous trip being 20, it was value for money. It is such a shame for Cuba, and Cayo Coco-Guillermo especially for being hit by Hurricane Irma, although when it is ready for tourists to go back, I definitely would because they depend on tourists there and it was one of the nicest holidays I have had, even though it was cut short.
Nice hottel, nice friendly staf. Wery good food , a lot of fruits. Nice place on the nice beach. All staf do all , that you will filling comfortabil . Hottel is wery clean . Staf ho do rooms cleaning makes siurprizes. I want wisit this hottel again.
My wife and I went to this hotel at the beginning of September and it was a lovely hotel with really nice staff . The lobby bar could do with a good mozzy clear out as I and my wife were bit to death from day one but ok around pool and other areas. Must have had there fill on first day. Beach is wide , which is white, soft sand and pretty clean. We had a 3rd floor room which was a bit dated but clean and had maid service daily. All going great till Wednesday 6 September when we were told we needed to be evacuated due to hurricane Irma heading in our direction. After a lengthy wait to get picked up , our coach joined a 47 coach convoy to take us to varadaro which was 9 hours away near Havana . All in all a good hotel, needed upgrading but what I hear about what the hurricane did, I assume that will need to happen anyway as it was badly damaged.
We stayed at the Iberostar Daiquiri between August 30 - September 6.Staff- very friendly and made sure you felt at homeRoom- we had an ocean view suite, it was very pretty and had an amazing view. The maid kept the room clean, we left a tip everyday. Tv did not work, AC was awesome (saved us from the heat), bathroom was clean and small, but spacious. The shower sucked, the water pressure was very weak. The room could use some paint, the closet door was broken. The patio and chairs was a nice added touch.Pool- Music was loud, prepare for kids to be obnoxious and loud in the swim up pool bar area. There was lots of garbage and beer cups left all over and in the pool area. Wild Crabs end up in the pool time to time. Pool was very warm and not much shelter from the sun. This was due to large amounts of people reserving the sun beds and umbrellas with their towels, when it states that you should not do so. Overall, pool is decent.Grounds- The plants and grass are kept beautifully. Lots of palm trees and floral bushes. ***One serious and unexpected event that happened twice, were power outages. These lasted 2 hrs each, and the grounds did not have a single flood light. It was pitch black both times. People were getting injured in the dark because they could not see where they were walking or where exits were (this would not be acceptable in Canada)*** Public bathrooms were disgusting and we recommend waiting till you get back to your room. They were full of mosquitos, toilets never flushed and no toilet paper. The resort smelled like sewage in certain areas, specifically near washrooms, and it was quite unpleasant. The convenience store saved our lives, we bought bottled water there everyday (2 pesos for 1.5 litres). Cigar shop was good, lots of variety. Lots of places on the resort to buy souvenirs.Food- Lots to choose from for every meal. The best part was the grilling stations which had eggs in the morning, meat, fish and pasta for lunch/dinner. There were smoothie, sushi, meat carving, pancake, taco, and omelette stations. The a la carte dinners were not very good - we preferred the buffet. Beach- very clean and even more beautiful than the pictures. Absolutely stunning. We took advantage of the free kayak rentals. Doctor on Call- very informative and the pharmacy had lots to offerTips from us- bring the best bug spray you can find, take dukarol, drink only bottled water, tip the staff, and have fun !!!Overall, we enjoyed our first trip to Cuba! The resort was amazing and we would definitely go back!
