My husband and I stayed at the Mojito at the beginning of June, 2017. Would definitely go back.STAFF - friendly, helpful, funny and kind.FOOD - we never went hungry! The pool bar pizzas and fries were amazing. The buffet food was always fresh and plentiful. Lots of veggies, beans, rice and breads for those who favour a plant-based diet. Rice, chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans, carrots, tomatoes, pineapple, mango, papaya, green peppers, corn, peas, pickles, olives, olive oils, vinegar, dressings etc. all made for a nice salad. Also, lots of meat and fish options. Oh, and don't forget the homemade donuts for breakfast!!!ROOMS - 'well loved' but sparkling clean and spacious. The air-con was very effective and a relief from the heat.POOLS - we loved the quieter adult pool. It is situated away from the music and although a few kids still ventured over, was generally a more chilled out scene than the main pool. The larger pool always had activities going on which looked like fun. BEACH - amazing! Beautiful (and warm) water, soft sand and as we went during low season, we never had troubles finding a chair in the shade.ENTERTAINMENT - we loved it! Incredible talent, funny hostesses and hosts and fun for all ages.
The resort was beautiful. The food was delicious in both the buffet and the a la cartes. The coffee here is amazing and the cappuccinos are the best I ever had. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The room was always clean. I love this resort and can't wait to go again.
We just returned from a five day vacation in Caya Coco Cuba, once again staying at the Mojito Resort from June 9th to the 13th. This is my second time staying at this resort, having stayed there last year in June as well. I have stayed in many sunny destinations throughout the Caribbean and Mexico and the Mojito is still the best spot for the money that you pay.The resort was once again extremely clean and the staff are the friendliest of the many resorts I have stayed at. The rooms are not over the top, but they are clean, everything worked and served its purpose. I did not come on a vacation to spend my time in the room!Like most of Cuba, the beach property at the Mojito is one of the best you can find. White sand, turquoise waters and you can walk out 100 yards before you get up to your chest. The ocean floor is hard sand with no rocks to worry about, and the temperature of the water is in the mid 80's.Each morning we would walk to the peak and back which takes about an hour, but its a great refreshing walk, and the beach is clean and hard sand, so easy to walk on. During my stay, I did not see any jelly fish or hear about any to spoil the walk or swimming. There are lounge chairs on the beach, a beach side bar and bbq grill with music playing.During our stay, one pool was being renovated, but there were other pools to choose from, including a quiet zone - adult pool. The food much improved this vacation compared to my stay in 2016. There were no issues with the food or the service. There was always a variety of food to choose from and well prepared.The lobby is a great place to unwind and get out of the sun and play some dominoes or cards and have a drink or special coffee. We would have a cappuccino every day and they were great. The service in the grand lobby was amazing, and although tipping is allowed, there is no agenda by the staff of their personal service whether getting tips or not. I always like to tip though, and it is much appreciated by the staff.Drinks are served in real glass and not plastic cups like many resorts. When I am having a nice drink, having glass verses a plastic cup makes a difference to me. They make a great margarita in the lobby bar.Check in and out is fast and professional. This year we went to the cigar lounge at night which we didn't know existed last year. This is part of the resort and provides a rock band who play cover songs. They are one of the best cover bands I have heard, and its a great place to unwind at the end of the night and listen to live music, play some pool, and enjoy a drink or two. With all the positives there must be some negatives. I do have a few issues that need to be pointed out. To get to the beach you have to walk over a lagoon which you cross over by a wooden deck. However, this year, a number of the deck boards were broken, leaving the deck vulnerable to personal injuries. Over the five days nothing changed, nor did it even appear to being addressed by the staff. In Canada, this would have been closed due to the potential injuries that could take place.I would also like to see them add on a server of drinks on the beach, like many resorts do. Although the beach hut does serve drinks, it would be that much better if they also had a server on the beach. This may seem petty, but after all, you are on vacation. Also, the adult pool does not have any service, so if you wanted water, pop or a mixed drink you would need to leave the pool area and go to the swim up bar to order your drinks, not a far walk, but an inconvenient one. Having servers at these two locations would make such a difference.Caya Coco is well known for the mosquito problem and this year was not nearly as bad as my experience in 2016. They fumigate the property every night just before dusk and I believe this is really helping keeping the mosquito problem under control. However, bug spray is still needed.I was happy with this resort in 2016, but it is even better in 2017. The big difference is the improvement in the food. I thought each meal, whether it be breakfast and dinner in the buffet restaurant, or lunch in the outdoor grill, the food was absolutely fine.I will definitely return again next year!
I recently went to this hotel and all the staff were completely amazing. Soon as we arrived at the hotel reception...the bartender came up and asked us if we wanted any drinks. Out of all my travels...I never had that happened before. The staff are always happy and willing to help with anything. The beach was about a five minute walk from the room and the ocean was beautiful with no rocks or seaweed. The food was pretty good compared to other hotels I've been to in Cuba. The only downfall to this hotel was that they have 3 pools and the deeper one of the 3 was closed due to repairs, which was pretty disappointing. They had a market close by within walking distance (5-8min) walk and taxi's were charging 4CUC to get there and 4CUC to get back... it was literally like a one minute drive. So not worth it to pay a taxi. The rooms at the hotel were very clean and they had bidets in them which was pretty cool. The nightly shows were excellent. Make sure to wear a hat if you go...very easy to get sunstroke, which my friend & I both got. I've travelled to the carribbean many times to Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, and different provinces of Cuba...I have to say the sun is very strong in Cayo Coco. I brought SPF 30 and it didn't work to well even though I applied it every hour or two. SPF 60 would be a good recommendation. Also make sure to book your 2 "A LA CARTE" reservations...the food was phenomenal!! Overall I had an amazing time and I would definitely return, thanks to all the staff members for doing such a great job.
Good morningWe were at the resort from May 28 to June 4 2017I went with my wife to this resort and the overall feeling is a good holiday. The resort is showing it's age and need a bit of work. The room was clean but a bit old. The service was fantastic. Very nice staff all around. The food was great. The a la carte were good with a great selection. The buffet tasted good but was a bit small. Very short drive to the resort and a very beautiful long beach. Very limited sitting area. We did 3 al la carte. Gourmet, Italian and international. All 3 were very good.Nice lobby bar with coffees and drinks. Good buffet. The food was good and very fresh. Just a very small selection. The snack bar at the pool was good for Burgers, fries and panini. Very pleasant service at all the restaurants, snack bar and the buffet. Room: We had to change room after day 2 because of a ceiling water leak. That was done very quickly. The room was a good size and the lady cleaning up the room did a great job.The mini bar was refilled every 2 days. Beach: Nice beach clean and all sand. Not many chairs to sit in the shade. Pools: Very nice and clean pool. We spent time at the beach and the pool. The great advantage is a very quiet adult only pool. You had the choice between 2. We loved the quiet pool.Shows: The shows were good. Too bad people didn't show up to see them.Staff: Very friendly and helpful. Smiling and ready to make your holiday great. Very nice at all locations.Lobby Very pretty and a good place to have your cappuccino. Singer at night. Cigar Lounge: Very nice barman and a good band playing soft rock music at night. Overall this is a good resort but you have to expect that it is old. if you have specific questions don't hesitate to contact me. LucLL@videotron.ca Have a nice holiday
