My wife and I have just spent two lovely weeks at this hotel.During our stay there was a mix of Canadians, Italians and British. The rooms were pretty standard and a little tired but served our needs adequately, however I didn't go to spend time in the room.The hotel is right on a beautiful white sandy beach with a turquoise sea with plenty of sun beds, a barbecue lunch or beach restaurant. Waiters come out regularly taking orders for drinks so there is no need to leave your sun bed.I have mixed reviews about the food. It was mainly a buffet but the hot food was not very hot and had to be reheated in a microwave.There are 4 stations that prepare food while you wait but on a busy night you could be waiting quite a while but was worth the wait.If management are reading this, please obtain new toasters. My biggest bugbear was having to put my bread through 4-5 times to toast it!The food in the Mexican restaurant however was very nice.The staff however are what make the stay worthwhile. They are very pleasant, friendly and attentive.Would I recommend that s hotel? Yes I would.
We have stayed at many resorts in different locations and this one was the most relaxing. Exceptional for its price point. It is an older venue with lots of charm. The beach is never crowded and beautiful with no venders. As no one lives on these islands, it was very safe and had no concerns leaving items at our chairs. Also to learn that the staff is bused in and out everyday totally a 5 hour transfer.....Greeted us with smiles every morning. The pool was spotless every morning and had a pleasant waterfall at the bar. We found the food more than adequate and realize its not easy to please everyone. There are several cooking stations in the buffet. Lots to choose from and we felt very fresh considering it is also trucked in from the mainland.We upgraded when we booked to a superior (renovated) ocean front on the third floor. Keep in mind you are in Cuba and its a little tired. However we had one of the most beautiful views, quiet and peaceful. We went on the open bus (5 pesos each) and enjoyed Pilar Beach, did a couple excursions, checked out a few other resorts including the new and very industrial looking new ones....We were very happy to return to Iberostar Daquiri.Go with an open mind, enjoy the beach, the flowers, the beautiful atmosphere and appreciate the beautiful and caring people who staff this resort. They are so proud and kind.Perhaps a few hints, take a couple of thin beach towels..$6.00 each from Walmart, the beach towels are also brought in and not everyday. When we did get them, I kept them in the room for showering as sometimes the towels are very thin. There are no facecloths, and I was glad I brought a small bar of soap, they do provide it. Imodium and bug spray just in case. We had a coffee machine and not always coffee. Take thermos mugs, and the lobby makes fresh coffee 24 hrs. a day, or go in the buffet and they will happily fill them, a short walk to the beach or pool, a great way to start the day (awesome sunrise). They work well for cold drinks as well. Remember your price is also the flight, If you want royal style suites and high priced food, go and pay for it. If you want a relaxing and beautiful beach at a fantastic price..Enjoy
This has been my 6th trip to Cuba since 2002 & although I have had good experience at other Cuban destinations my week @ Iberostar Daiquiri was one of the most satisfactory, & great value for money spent. The resort was one of the smaller ones I have visited but complete in amenities. It is relatively level with the beach so no big climbs up & down to get to the beach. The beach... What can I say... Absolutely beautiful.! I understand in the last few years it has been added to but as far as the eye can see it was wide (about 100' to the water) & generally calm, even with an on shore breeze. There was a bit if seaweed but it was groomed every day & not an issue. There were no crowds on the beach & there were areas for kite surfers so there was no interference with bathers. Pilar Beach which is considered one of the best beaches in Cuba or the Caribbean is just up the road from the resort & I went to it just to see what it was like. It has nothing on the Iberostar beach & environs, except a Lobster restaurant. We always seemed to be able to get a couple of lounge chairs on the beach in shelters & did not worry that they would be taken if we got up to swim or walk. The hotel itself was very nice, beautifully kept grounds & very clean & appealing. I am used to resort food in Cuba so I know what to expect as far as variety & quality. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food , with fresh veggies & fruit , & exceptional bread & buns, no waiting at the omelet stations & decent variety even though a bit repetitious through the week. The A La Carte restaurants were good with decent menu choices & good atmosphere.. The staff generally were smiling when greeting & created the impression that they cared. We had some requests regarding our room & they were immediately looked after. We tipped when appropriate but did not find it was mandatory to get good service. We did not go to any evening shows at the theatre there so I cannot comment on the entertainment there. Having said that, the musicians that were in the lobby around cocktail time were fantastic & they would do table requests. First Class! My wife & I found the bed a little firm for our liking but most people will find them comfortable enough. The room was kept spotless & we left small items for the chambermaids as a token of our appreciation for the nice presentation..A good vacation depends on your attitude which is tempered by the environment. If I were looking for a big party atmosphere this is not your first choice. If you are looking for some relaxation in a great atmosphere with a terrific beach with nice accommodation & not spend a fortune on the vacation this is the best!
Just finished booking our 5th trip to Iberostar Daquari and remembered I didn't write a review from our last trip in May of 2016. From the time we stepped off the plane and in to the bus it was just amazing. It's like visiting family and there is nothing the staff won't do to make your stay more pleasurable. Our maid Ary did an awesome job and kept our room spotless everyday. We love the idea of a smaller resort, everything is so close together. Just a short walk from your room to the beautiful beach which is kept so clean.the front desk was always smiling and ready and willing to help you in any way. Can't say enough about the bar staff, they work so hard and were entertaining as well. The activities crew kept you busy with games and lots of laughs. We were treated last year to a dinner that was invitation only for repeat visitors. We were treated to a six course meal that was absolutely delicious. Our glasses of champagne we always kept full and the general management of Iberstar we on hand to thank us for coming back yeah after year. Enjoyed the nightly entertainment in the lobby. This is what keeps us coming back year after year. The food was always fresh and they would cook whatever you asked for. The fried chicken at the beach bar is to die for!! We had our fav waiter and waitress that made us feel so special. Don't want to leave anyone out because everyone of you contributed to our awesome vacation. So to name a few Boris, midalis, Edel, Ary, Liovany, Yaqelin, Yosbamy, Leif, Maikel, Franko, Amaury, yillian, maruchy and our favs in the buffet restaurant Evelyn and Bernardo. Looking forward to another awesome vacation in a couple of weeks.
The hotel itself is fine and its location is amazing. A long sandy beach which is perfect if you want to walk and run... The hotel is charming, a bunch of smaller buildings rather than a huge complex, which I like. The food, taking in consideration you are in Cuba is fine, you should be able to find something you would like.I am an Iberostar fan and I have been to 7 of them (most of them more than once) but I have to admit that I was very disappointed with a few things at this hotel:1- I made coffee on day 1 in my room, there was coffee left in the pot as well as in a mug... This never got cleaned during the whole week... It was still there when I left this morning... So no need to say that we were not given any more coffee bags during the rest of the week;2- the washrooms in the lobby were most of the time dirty. The pigs are the clients, no doubt but I think the hotel should increase the number of times they clean them during the day; and ensure there is toilet paper;3- Towels in the rooms are old and 2 days, I had a towel full of holes;4- There are not enough long chairs on the beach... The hotel was full and we had a hard time getting chairs. Once again, I am sure that clients are to blame since they use more chairs than they should...;5- More water should be put in the rooms. 1.5 liter for 2 people is far from enough;6- dishes are not always clean at the buffet;7- There are not enough chairs in the theatre if you want to go watch a show;8- We did not have any hot water the whole week. Even though I went to guest services to complain and somebody actually came to our room to check, nothing changed.... That is not pleasant at all...Most of the staff is super nice so overall, I think this hotel could be great if some details were fixed... They have the location and the staff, the rest should be easy....
