Iberostar Mojito on Cayo Coco was our first stop after leaving Havana. Must say that I really enjoyed the policy of the island which does not allow locals to enter the island without a reason. Resort is nice, but don't get your hopes up as it is outdated and lacks a bit of refreshment. Beach is neglected and dirty so I would recommend you to stay at the pool or try your luck down the beach. Beach bar is dirty and staff is rude. Bird feces are everywhere so you need to try really hard to find a clean stool or a table. We ordered Mojito but the lady said that we can't get it. We asked her how so, especially when the name of the hotel is Mojito? She replayed in a rude tone that it is not possible to serve Mojito to everyone in this hotel which as we learned later meant no tip no drink which was strange in all inclusive resort.I must say that we were more satisfied in the restaurant. Staff is nice, warm and welcoming. Food is for Cuban standards really good and fresh.Staff in the lobby bar and the lobby itself is a bit nicer than at the beach bar but not nearly close to as the staff in the restaurant. Service repeats itself as at the beach bar. Staff will not serve you or will not bring you your ordered drink unless you tip them to their taste. They will bring you your drink but if there is no tip next drink will not come or they will magically ran out of everything you order.Resort also has a mini market where you can buy at a reasonable price water, sweets (twix and snickers) and some other stuff. If you did not come to this hotel by rent a car you can use a sight seeing bus which will take you around the island and it stops at every hotel which makes it really slow but you will see the whole island.Not sure if I would come here again but it was better than other hotels I visited in Cuba.
We travelled to the Iberostar Mojito 5-12 March. 2nd visit. First was in 2011. The hotel seems to be stuck in time. We are in our 40s. Had a standard room in bldg 16 on the third floor overlooking the pool. No elevators. (did not care) The rooms serve the purpose to sleep & not much more. 300 meters to the beach from our room. A nice walk by the empty villas over the laguna. They were in use our first visit, not anymore. The last time as well we had acces to the Emperador beside the Mojito but it is now closed. (sad) . Our goal was to relax and have fun. Both were achieved. What made this a great trip was the staff & the other travellers that we met. Had some great nights at the cigar bar listening to the band and watching Freddie do his art. The food was ok for us. The beach...what more can you ask for. The volleyball net was broken after our first day. The little snack bar on the beach was nice. can not comment on the ''drinks'' because we basically just drank brugal . The coffee in the lobby bar was great as usual. We took the double decker to Playa Pilar. If you want a new hair style sit upstairs. It takes a while to get there as the bus stops at other hotels. We brougt a couple of beers for the ride and enjoyed the landscape. They rent loungers at Pilar and you can buy drinks & food. 1/2 day excursion for not too much $ There is a ''market'' abot 1/2 a km from the hotel. We walked there 2 seperate times. The usual Cuban fair for sale. By the way... the beer is cheaper in the hotel store than the market. I met a gut (jim-Nasium) who brought stuff from home. (lotions, school stuff, beauty products) and bartered for souvenirs. If you have old smart phones it seems like you can arrange to trade for stuff as well. Back to the hotel.. The main pool was enjoyable and relaxing and we could get various food and drinks from the open air resto just beside it. The quiet pool was just that. You can walk on the beach to the left for about 3 1/2 km and see the new bldgs. being built that will be hosting Americans in the future I imagine. For us this was a great trip because we knew what to expect. We have stayed at the Bahia chain in the D.R. (Samana, Puerto Plata and Punta Cana as well as BlueBay In the Riviera Maya and I would say that the Iberostar is not up to par. However I have to say that we are talking Cuba here. For the price we paid... under 2g for two we got what we paid for. We went for the SUN, FUN,DRINKS and lastly FOOD. We as a couple make our vacation the way we want it to be and the ''little things'' don't bother us. Overall we had a great time... I don't think we will return to this resort again because there are sooo many. I think I prefer the landscape of the DR. more. By the way..... The day after we got back I was sicker than I have ever been in my life. Throwing up, dizziness etc for 1/2 a day.(my wife was fine) It might be my fault (Brutal Brugal!) just as much as it could have been something else. The fist time ever that I have returned and gotten sick in 7 trips down south. If you decide to go here let loose have fun and remeber which country you are in. Remember...YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!Safe travels.
My wife and I were just down at the Mojito, again for our honeymoon, and once again were very happy with the resort overall. We stayed there from Oct 22-Nov 5, so it was a bit early in the season, and things were quiet. At times it was like we owned the place! No problems getting a cot by any of the pools, and the service at all the bars was amazing! Hats off to Lixander (Cheechu) in the lobby bar for his exemplary service, and pleasant demeanor, and great sense of humour! What an awesome formally trained bartender! Freddy in the cigar bar was also very entertaining to watch. Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail had nothing on him. I've been all over the world and have never seen a bartender throw bottles and glasses around like that! Thanks very much to Dejean, the hotel manager, as well, who did everything in his power, to make our honeymoon as enjoyable as possible! The staff at the Iberostar Mojito in Cayo Coco, are what makes the resort so special as a vacation destination.There were some signs of the outer edge of hurricane Matthew washing up a lot of seaweed onto the shore, but there were crews working on it to have it removed, and some of the palapas were being repaired and replaced.We quadded around the island, and went for a nice lobster meal at both Ranchon Las Dunas and Playa Prohibido at a very reasonable cost. Thanks to Lazaro at Cubacar, for helping us out with our transportation needs. Lots of things to do, like speedboat/snorkelling trips, Katamaran cruises, etc.In short we will be back as soon as we can arrange it! Highly recommend this resort.
We visited this resort from October 29 - Nov 5 2016. We were there with a large group of people that we met on our first visit in April 2016. I was very happy when arriving at the resort and we got special wrists bands for being a return guest and got a bottom floor room that we had wanted. The staff at this resort are absolutely amazing. 5 star service all the way here. They what makes this resort a wonderful place. However, some things at this resort have changed a lot since April. The two things that me and my fiancé loved the most about this resort were not really there this time. The cigar bar was our place we went every evening after dinner, they have now turned off the lights on the path to the cigar bar and stopped having Tahiti play here. The reason we were told was that the roof is unsafe and they don't want guests out there. Well close it then. We loved going there in the evening and having drinks and really like The bartender Freddy out there and buying a cigar ( shop is closed now). Too bad really it was an asset to the resort. The other highlight was the beach. Well I understand that this time of year the beach is not the best but there was kelp on that beach for weeks and was not cleaned the entire week we were there even after talking to guest services. The dried old debris was a breeding ground for sand flies and flies. You could not sit on mojito beach because of it. My fiancé watched the tracker drive around the mess and not clean any of it up. Most of the other resorts were cleaned daily. So the main reason we came there we could not use all week. The food was still excellent we ate Italian twice in our week didn't bother with other a la cartes because Buffett was good. Less selection then April but it's to be expected for low season. Was very good food.The pools were absolutely filthy this time as well. I cannot remember them being that dirty in April. There was a scum around the sides everywhere and the grates on side were disgusting. It really needs a good cleaning. Our room and rest of the resort was spotless. The resort is older and it needs some updating but it is always clean in common areas and rooms are cleaned very well. The cat situation on the resort needs to be addressed as well. It is really getting out of hand the last day we were there a kitten came in and was walking on a table in buffet. Our first room before we switched smelled like cat urine and had cats outside the room howling. Other than our few small complaints which I've put in more in hopes that management will read we had an awesome week. I'm sure the beach will be cleaned up once the hotel gets busier but they should make sure that there was at least one small section was cleaned for guests that paid to come stay and enjoy the beach. I would recommend this resort to others but maybe not on off season. If you choose to stay here remember it's not a new resort and don't expect a fancy resort. I've been to cuba many times and stayed 5 stars and 3 stars. For us cuba is our favourite all we need is decent food, clean rooms, good service and a nice beach.The mojito had all of this so I would go back anytime but not in off-season. We enjoy cuba for the beach and April is better.
As often I spend the week of October in my favorite Hotel in Cayo Coco. The weather was just right, not to much humid, sun and a bit of rain. One thing only that they renovating the beach bar and it was closed, instead they opened a small beach bar on the other site to the right on the way to the Sol Cayo, not many people by the ocean, mostly by the pool. As always, Ana and grey hair guy are the best at the reception, they go above and beyond to make your stay at the Mojito fantastic. Also the bartenders, Louis, Lexander and all of the working people are just great. I love this Hotel just waiting for the renovation to end and I'll be back for sure. Thank you all the staff to make my stay unmemorable, I feel like I am coming back to my Family there. I have to mention the towel Lady Dailin who always had smile on her face and clean towel to change. Oh I forgot about my cleaning Lady Milady, who I believe try hard to clean my room 1511, but it was not satisfactory to my liking. There were a lot of dust under my bed and in the corners. So I don't appreciate the cleaning very much. About the food, hmm, I was ok, but next to me was a woman who loudly complained saying nasty things about the food, I want to say that they get you what they have, what do you expect? New York steak? Schiskabob and greek salad? They feed you what they have got. Be realistic. All in all I personally have had great time.
