I came to this hotel with an open mind. I had read numerous reviews and made up my mind. It appeared to have many people that had been coming here for many years. Apparently it was first started and opened up by some NHL hockey players years ago. Some were saying that it had been going down hill. The food overall was pretty decent and some of the best I have experienced in Cuba. The ketchup was good at this hotel so there was no need to bring my own LOL I did bring some seasoning salt and gave it to the chefs on all the meat and fish that I had ate. The pizza is pretty much always good at this hotel. The rooms could use some updating but were somewhat clean. I did switch my room once but that was even a bit challenging. Seems to be a norm at most resorts. One room they offered me had a missing hair drier and exposed wires in the hole in the wall!! My biggest complain was a waiter swearing at me in Spanish because I grabbed a dish of ice cream and asked for a spoon. He told me to sit down and he would bring me one. I wanted to eat it outside and watch the show. I didn't want to dirty a table for a bowl of ice cream. I reported it to guest services as I didn't think he should be swearing at me. I was told that they cutlery was counted daily and that the wait staff was responsible for each and every utensil. I am pretty sure that was a lie. Nobody has the time to count each spoon and which wait staff would you blame? I just thought that was crazy of the hotel. I did meet a lot of workers there that treated me well and were like old friends!!
The hotel is great, they give us a room that was near to the lobby, pool and restaurent. People are very friendly, always there to help and serve you....My favourite time was early morning going to the lobby and enjoy my cappuccino.. food and activity was great..A long walk to the beach ...Thank you all for the nice vacation ...
First time in Cuba for the entire family. The weather was fantastic, the people were very kind and helpful. We were pretty disappointed with the resort. Very run down and poorly maintained. We did not have high expectations of the food and, and unfortunately we were right in doing so. That said my kids and I lived off of the bread, which was delicious. Everything else was suspect at best. The ability to get food was limited which is annoying with kids. From the room to the pool to the front lobby, everything is just run down and old. The beach was quite nice, but a lengthy walk to get there. We want to give Cuba another try, but we will definitely not go back to Iberostar Mojito
The 1st time I visited this resort was with my daughter in May 2017. We had such a perfect experience we decided to go back with friends (her friend and friend's mother) in August. Our stay was Aug 18-25th. Although we had another great stay, I'd definitely prefer to go back again in May/June/July, as August was much more busy (especially on the weekend). In August many Cubans are on holidays, so the resort had 95% Cuban guests. This was ok but it would have been nice to meet other Canadians travelling as we did on the 1st trip. That being said, being around the Cuban people and families is a very heart warming and loving experience. I love how they are so friendly and fun and family oriented.Other stuff. Check in & out was fast and seamless. We arrived very early and they got our room earlier than expected .. super nice bonus! Front desk staff were alwasy helpful and professional. Room was cleaned very well every day, A/C worked great, and :shower was nice and hot. Pools and grounds were lovely and well kept. I preferred the adult pool for some R&R but the main pool had some great music and entertainment when we wanted some fun. Beach was nothing short of spectacular. One day alot of seaweed and debris was washed up by shoreline and this was quickly cleared away the next day. We always got a chair beach side and the staff was always very helpful at assisting with that and keeping our drinks full! (try the rum filled coconuts on the beach!)The food and food service at the resort was also great. The lobby bar bartenders are super attentive 24/7 ..from yummy cappuccinos to mixing up your fav cold beverage. One morning the breakfast buffet was super busy and there was line up to get in. I was super impressed how some of the entertainment staff quickly came in and helped the buffet staff clean tables and seat new guests. The pool side grill had the slowest service at lunch .. choose the beach bar or lunch buffet instead. The buffet had PLENTY of variety ... fresh fish, chicken, pork, beef all freshly grilled per order. One evening there was a big perfectly roasted turkey which was a tasty treat. I also tried the pasta bar for spaghetti and was not disappointed. We celebrated a birthday in the international restaurant one evening and all enjoyed a spectacular 4 course gourmet meal including lobster and champagne, our waiter was just lovely ...super friendly, accommodating and fast. We also enjoyed a great Cuban meal in the a la carte restaurant but had to eat quickly as the mosquitoes were making a meal of us! Entertainment was fabulous. Each evening there was a different activity and/or dance show and event. Lots of audience participation which was fun. We followed many shows by salsa dancing in the disco after with our rum punches! Whooohoo. One evening we visited the cigar lounge and watched the band and played pool until late. Friday we enjoyed the Cuban Day beach BBQ where a Cuban band played alongside the most delicious Cuban spread of BBQ food. My best tips:- visit Moron! About 45min or so drive away .. see wild gorgeous flamingos on the way! Bring water and good walking shoes. Try the Cuban ice cream in town, go for a ride on a horse drawn buggy and enjoy some authentic Cuban food! - DO NOT miss Cuban Day BBQ by the pool. One word: YUM- do try the restaurant on the beach for a spectacular lobster & shrimp lunch. I don't recall the name of it, but along the beach if you walk to left of the resort (towards Tryp) it's only a 3 min walk. Full BBQ plate with shrimp, lobster, rice, veggies and plantains - DELISH! $12CUC per plate. Ice cold Cristal can $1CUC. CAN NOT BEAT.- 5 min walk to the market down the street (or 2 min train ride for $3CUC). You can also withdraw $ there from the money exchange there if there is not enough at the hotel. I bought some fantastic leather sandals and purses plus some funky wood carvings and a hand made beach cover. - bring a Bubba mug! Keeps your drinks sand free & ice cold for hours and you don't need to go back for a refill every 10 min. - Don't forget mosquito repellent .. a strong one! And lots! You'll need it. - Smile and tip well. They appreciate every single bit of your kindness.We love you Cuba! Thank you for another fantastic holiday. We will be back again soon!
We were 2 families there Aug 16th to 23rd 2017, 5 adults 5 kids 3 to 6 yoAll had a great time. Most time spent in pool and at the beach, which was perfect for the small kids.Food was just 0k. There was a bit of variety throughout the week. Wonderful bread made on site, delicious french fries. So this was a really great vacation however we wouldn't go back to this hotel for a few reasons. - beach was a 10 minute walk part of which was over a mosquito infested "laguna" (we called it a swamp)- mosquitoes were mostly a problem at dusk / night though (note we were in August)- bed mattresses uncomfortable in the 3 rooms we had- maintenance problems eg. bathtub rust, finicky faucets, clogged shower heads, missing tilesThese aren't showstoppers, as the title said everything was kept clean.
