Amazing place!! Great staff! Will def return! I've been to iberostar playa pilar 3 times, and wanted to try this iberostar. Same great experience!! Amazing brand. Entertainment staff the best! Foam party is a must! Water aerobics with darian is so much fun! :)
Arrived an hour early (great tail wind from YEG/YYC) to Sunny CCC to a bright sunny day. Luggage intact headed for the Bus, welcomed by the driver and Sunwing rep.offered the 2/$5 Cervas and off we drove to Cayo Guillermo, excellent communication and info from the rep, stopping once on the Cayo Coco side and on to the C.G. approximately 45 minutes total with one more stop between.Arrived at the hotel and filled out paper work, we had emailed and asked for upper floor ocean view and received this request. Unfortunately there were a few hiccups with this room (No need for details) but Customer Service was quick to offer us another room the following morning which they requested us to inspect and was perfect(for Cuba) room was smaller probably due to the amount of furniture, which of course also includes the chair off Star Trec.(Sorry you will have to go there to see it)Unfortunately the next few days were filled with clouds and very windy, there were a few kiteboarders out who probably loved it but was probably too strong winds for beginners. Many more out later in the week.The weather turned around and it was great to be on the awesome beach that was just widened. Excellent beach service in the AM but unfortunately these staff must go in and work in the Ranchon in the afternoon.Food, you are in Cuba and it my not always be to your wants but there is always something to eat, and various choices, Lobster is available on site ($20.00/pp)at an al a carte as we enjoyed or a Restaurant to the left when facing the beach about 100 meters, book early we were told and the couple had a great meal as well. The best part of this resort though has to be the Staff, they are all there to complete your Holiday with Service, Dignity but above all else the time to speak with you, share their lives and families and build friendship and this stems from the gardeners to servers, entertainment, managers and G.M.(7/11 included) Iberostar you should be proud of this team!
This was our fourth trip to Cuba but our first time to this resort. All in all, it was a very good experience with the most beautiful beach to walk on. The beach is a high priority with us as we don't sit around the pool at all. The water was warm and the beach went for miles. Just off the shore to the left of the resort is the remnants of a pier under the surface of the water. Snorkeling in this area was perfect with hundreds of fish in among the sunken wooden logs. We don't kite surf but it sure was fun watching them all day. The staff came and offered us drinks on the beach and the beach bar and washroom were really close by.There is a trick to travelling in Cuba and that is to stand in line at the hot food stations at the buffet. The food at the stations is cooked to order and is fresh and hot. And if you like fish, the fish and seafood is outstanding. Every day you could have a different kind of fish, from Mahi Mahi to sea bass, to salmon and tilapia. Another secret is check out the soups. The Cubans have mastered the art of soup making with intricate layers of flavour.We only ate at two a la cartes and we preferred the Mexican. It was nice to get out of the noise of the buffet area as we were at the resort during March Break and I believe the resort was at capacity.We paid a small amount for an upgraded room and it was definitely worth it. We were on a third floor with beautiful sea views.The Cuban people are the best and they can't do enough for you. Everyone from the gardeners to the housekeepers to the wait staff were all so pleasant and helpful.I would like to thank guest services and especially Yudenia for her helpfulness in solving our one issue to our satisfaction.The night shows were all good but my favourite place was the lobby bar. It was always full of people and fun with live entertainment every night. A great place to end our day!!There are few inconsistencies with this resort. Beach towel replacement - hit and miss. Hot water - hit and miss. Room restocking - hit and miss.But all in all it is a great family resort and is good value for the money. We like smaller resorts and this one certainly fits the bill.
What an amazing resort. We will definitely coming back. From the amazing caring staff to our room the facility it self . The food and drinks were more than expected everything was very very good. Thank You iberostar staff and resort for showing us such a wonderful time .. Till next time
We stayed in March 2017 and had never been to this area of Cuba or this resort. We thoroughly enjoyed our week...despite a few cloudy and cool days! We stayed in the main part of the hotel on the third floor, rooms 1333 and 1332. Nice rooms...connected so that our teenage kids were right next door. The room was always clean, the air-conditioner was great, we always had hot water, and we had a great view. Unlike some of the other resorts we have stayed at, the small size of this place made it so easy to get around...everything was close. We thought being above the main lobby would mean dealing with a lot of noise, but it seemed reasonable and things often quieted quickly by 10 or 11 PM. We always had fresh towels if needed in both rooms and there was always a fresh bottle of water. Very happy with the service and the cleanliness. The beach is beautiful...great for swimming, lounging, or walking. Watching the kite-surfers just east of the resort was always fun. Would love to go back and give it a try. On nice days, you might have to compete for loungers, but there is always someone there helping to find and move some in a spot you like. Early risers often have spots reserved but that has been the case with every resort we have visited. The beach was cleaned every day. A few days of cool wind washed up a lot of eel-grass but it was quickly removed when the sun returned and folks headed back to the beach. There were often bar staff and servers coming around taking orders for drinks, but the bars were close in the event you needed a walk to serve yourself. The pool area was always busy and the animation staff did a great job engaging everyone in games and activities. There are a few pool tables and a table-tennis table...both could use some new gear if you have the means to bring something like that...but we made due and the staff was always there to engage in banter and play against our teenage kids. George especially...great guy and one of our kids' favourites!The main lobby was always the center of attraction in the late afternoon and evening. It had one of the best atmospheres we have experienced at a resort. Great bar service, live music, games, and great animation staff who spent time mingling and talking with guests. We really enjoyed getting to know a few of them (Zoe especially) as they took the time to share something about themselves and learn a little about our family in return. Photos on our phones were quickly out as we shared a little of our lives and discovered the common ground we have in the love of our families and friends.The food was great...always something on offer that we enjoyed and the cooks on hand were always willing to prepare something to your liking whether it was an omelet and crispy bacon in the morning or some well-cooked chicken, pork, or beef in the evening. The wait staff in all the eating areas were very attentive. The a-la-carte offerings were all good...the Mexican was probably our favorite. But, we enjoyed the simplicity of the Cuban meal at the beach restaurant and the flavours and atmosphere of the outdoor Italian restaurant as well. We did the Jeep-On excursion...a combination of the the speedboat/mangrove snorkle, along with the farm visit and drive into Moron and surrounding countryside. It was a long day (the resort is a long way from Moron or any other town), but we really enjoyed the chance to get a little closer to real Cuba. Drove a nice 4x4 (Chinese make I think) through the narrow and crazy roads of Cuba...even had to pass a Cuban police car who seemed to be taking his time getting to wherever he was going! The guides did a great job. We also planned a catamaran excursion but that got canceled because of windy weather. Despite a few cool windy days, we loved this resort. The staff is the best we have encountered in Cuba and the Dominican. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
