Spent the 2nd week of January at the Daiquiri and am amazed at the reclaimation from Irma's destruction.the rooms have been repainted and the lobby and bar area has been greatly improved. As always the staff remain the helpingest and friendliest around. The Buffet is a notch above the average Cuban Resort fare, there is a choice for anyones palate. Rooms are well cleaned everyday, fridge stocked everyday any problems with the room a technician was there promptly to fix it, reception staff were always friendly and ready to solve any requests.Weather was not the best not because of the rain since there was not much of that but the wind but hey it was a lot better than what was left behind and our week was what a vacation is supposed to be, peaceful, quiet and relaxing and thank you Daiquiri it was just that
This is maybe my fifth time in Cuba, and by far the worst resort I've stayed at. Figured I had a decent idea of what to expect, guess I was wrong. I really wonder what resort every one else is reviewing, forget about a regular 4 star resort, this is far from even a normal Cuban 4 star resort. This wasn't the cheapest resort, but it was one of the best reviewed. I really wonder whyFirst the negatives:- Water in the showers was barely tepid, half the time with very low water pressure- In room coffee was never refilled, and room was not regularly cleaned well- View from the room showed nothing but garbage (see pic)- Door lock... just look at the picture - Beach bar is still being rebuilt- Pier is still being rebuilt- Buffet food was terrible. Cuban resort food is what it is, this was the worst of the bunch- Wifi is only available in the lobby, is paid (1cuc/hr), and barely works. Do not plan on doing any work - Alcoholic drinks are basic and watered down- Snack bar for the most part had precooked burgers most of the time, if you're lucky, you might get one fresh. Bar by snack bar was closed at night. If you have thoughts of getting food late at night while getting drunk with friends, not going to happen- Asked the agent at the on site rental kiosk for a car. Response was simply, " I don't have one" Ok... When will you have one? "Don't know, check in a few days maybe"- Beach was very dirty, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that it was probably from the poor weatherThe good:- Coffee in the lobby was very good- Serving staff in the lobby were very friendly and gave great serviceGeneral tip, because of where this hotel is, you're going to be the last dropped off and the first picked up by the airport bus. May want to relax with a drink and get a cab instead. Also the club between this and the Melia was a lot of fun.
We had good time at this resort.The check in was slow, but we got a nice room with the ocean view and a king size bed.The room needs some updates, but who cares.The grounds are clean, but far saying wow. There is still lots of work to do to clean and be all in function after Irma.They are still working on the beach restaurant and they stop developing the pier.The management I think is the problem, they need to get involved and solve the issue.The food was good, always something to eat, cooking stations with fresh meat, rice, fries, baked potatoes, stews.... deserts a lot to be improved. Fruits are just basic, good grapefruits and bananas, but bad pineapples and watermelon. But don't forget is just a 4 star hotel.The Cuban workers are great, from the bar, the waiters, the groundskeepers and even the receptionists are nice. One evening I saw them leaving by buses, it was midnight, you don't realize, there is an army working for everything to be order and to make our vacation better. Thanks for their effort and their passion and kindness.Now, what is not that great: the bites, what they are coming from hard to say, the mosquitoes or the beach small flies, no clue, but you will get bitten even if you use the spray or not. My advise, get some pills for the itchiness, one person from our group bought them, expensive but they helped.The food needs a lot to be improved, deserts, fruits.. it is a tropical country, I understand no tomatoes, but no guavas, no mangoes.... The beach bar, I know it is temporary, opens after ten and right after lunch it is closed...No toilets by the beach, they were at the beach restaurant, but now they are rebuilding, and with the speed they are moving it will take a while.I have been to Cuba couple of times and the management was always visible. Here, I think it is a lady, which I saw it ones or twice.....A la carte restaurants are nothing better then the buffet, just the fact that you are served at the table. Don't miss them, just have low expectations.The lobby roof was not replaced, so be aware when it rains it is very slippery.Over all I will definitely recommend this resort, it is nice, safe, very friendly people working there, just make sure you don't pay a lot....Currency it is better at the bank then at the lobby, but lobby it is open 24h and does not ask for a passport.Rom and coffee are better to be bought from the airport, the same price, more options.....Enjoy the vacation, we had a great time.
We went too the Iberostar Daquiri in August 2017. It was a lovely. Our room was lovely and clean. Very spacious. We could see the sea from our room which was a bonus. The food was very nice with plenty of choice. All of the staff were very friendly especially in the restaurant and bar. While we were there the hotel was having work done to the swimming pool area. Amazingly this did not cause any real problems. The hotel is situated on a gorgeous beach. The only real problem are the mosquitos which are vicious little devils, although this is not the hotels fault as they spray daily. We got bit and had tho seek medical attention. We have been to Cuba 9 times so we are aware of this problem. It still doesn't put us off. We would recommend this hotel but just be aware of mosquitos.
This resort has become our second home, I've aleady been four times and I recommended it to many friends and family who ended up vacationning there. Everyone felt the same thing: the staff makes all the difference. From the reception to the animators to the cooks to the room service, everyone is very friendly. Particularly in the buffet, the very best chef Carrillo is unbelievable at what he does, he is so nice and he doesn't make just pancakes, he makes art pieces. Also very good seafood for lunch. Everyone was very impressed with his professionalism and great personality. The beach is endless, this time they didn't clean it often enough though. I've just come back home and already can't wait to go back.
