    I have been to Cuba many times and always enjoy the people, the weather, the peacefulness. Of the various resorts I have been to, this one was in the middle. Things are, unfortunately, changing in Cuba. On various past trips to Cayo Coco I have gone on local birdwatching trips for a very reasonable price. No such trip was listed in the excursions this time and my inquiry at the so-called "customer service" met with a blank look. The excursions that were listed were much more expensive than in the past. A massage was offered for a price I did not find reasonable.. WARNING: Watch your money. The first time I exchanged money at the hotel desk the woman shortchanged me. When I asked about the amount, it was corrected quickly. I suggest you specify you want a receipt at the beginning, might avoid this problem. I bought a carton of local cigarettes, handed the woman a 20 peso note, she gave me 2 pesos change. Again, I questioned this and she quickly corrected the change to 5 pesos. Too bad....

    Thank you Iberostar Mohjito for giving our girls, aged 7 and 4 such a perfect vacation! 8th time for myself in Cuba and my husband and I thought we would need to bring the hot sauce with us based on previous exprerience, however not needed for this resort! The staff were so friendly at the buffet (special thanks to Juan Carlos) and reception and the nightly entertainment dazzled our girls. It was very nice how they involved the girls and other kids stayng at the resort. we just went as we knew the beach was excellent based on staying at other resorts in Cayo coco and Cayo Guillermo however the food at this resort exceeded our expectations. Although we brought soy milk packs for the kids (and nutella for toast) as they can be fussy with different tastes there were lots of choices for them. Although the ambiance was great at the Italian restaurant (and service) we actually preferred the guy making the fresh pasta at the buffet restaurant! Definately want to return! We stayed on site at Disney for the past 2 years and my girls had just as much fun playing on the beautiful beach, enjoying the clean pool and again the great nightly enterainment, that before kids, my hubby and I usually passed on. I was dissapointed about the trip cost to Moron and would have went as it would have been a great experience for the girls but thought it was a bit high. Other than that a wonderful experence for all! Thanks again!

    Great Beach. Rooms need to be upgraded. Resort staff were quite friendly. Housekeeping staff especially and did a great job each day cleaning and preparing the room. Food was passable in the Buffet. A la carte restaurant was pretty good except for the mosquitos (it is located in a saltwater marsh). Table service in the Lobby Bar left a lot to be desired. Cuban guests at the resort were quite rude and often horded food. Not much in activities for our teenage daughter. Nightly shows at the amphitheatre were pretty good.

    The location, employees, beach, and overall service were excellent. The only draw-back were some rude Quebecers that were loud, obnoxious, and treated the employees poorly. Some of the pool staff were a little too involved with female customers during the day when families like ours were trying to enjoy the pool. Not a thing you want to explain to the kids. This was our second stay here and third time to Cuba. We would stay again but would really like to see the behaviour of both customers and employees monitored better.

    I vacationed at the Iberostar Mojito in the first week of June 2013 and I would definitely return in the future. The entire resort was exceptionally clean, including my room, the pools and the beach. The buffet had a wide variety and everything was delicious especially the seafood! The beach is absolutely beautiful, you can walk for miles on silky white sand. I cannot say enough about the staff at the Iberostar Mojito, they were always very attentive and friendly and ensured your needs were met so that you would have the best possible vacation. My one and only complaint would be the mosquitos in the late afternoon and evening, however that is not the fault of the resort, just ensure you bring a good bug repellant. This vacation was one of the best and I would go back!!

    This hotel appeared to be going through some overhaul when we arrived. Over the course of our vacation, the grounds were being worked on, and they installed a washroom closer to the beach. There is too little shade at the beach for the size of this resort. You need to get to the beach between 6 and 6:30 am to get shade. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. There is a bar at the beach. No food is offered. The beach is quite a walk from the resort. With the washroom being opened up nearby, the walk became less of an issue. The choices of food at this resort was not as plentiful as you would see in the Dominican or Mexico but what was offered was delicious and we had no complaints about the quality at all. The nightly entertainment was the best that we have seen during our various resort vacations. Lastly the staff at this resort were courteous and friendly. We would definitely recommend this resort.

    My husband and I loved this hotel. It was exactly what we were looking for. We came from Vancouver, so it was more expensive then if you came from another city that flies their direct. We had lowered our expectations after reading about Cuba, but we still wanted to go and we were very happy when it was better then what we expected. We changed our room to 2125. It was the top floor, bright corner unit, view of the trees and slight view of the ocean, close to the adult pool, so it was quiet and had a separate walk way to the beach away from the main area. The food was way better then expected. NO, you are not going to find the same quality as back home as Vancouver has some of the best food in the world, but it was good. There is a pasta bar, a salad and fruit bar, the usual buffet section of foods in steamer trays, something different every night at the carving table and a fresh grill (which we preferred). At the fresh grill they had different fish and meats that you could have grilled in front of you. I wouldn't suggest the beef as it is tough, but the pork chops are great. Every 2 weeks they have 1 lobster night and that was definately the highlight. The entertainment was amazing and we made sure not to miss it. Still not sure how those dancers can move the way they do. I think they are double jointed. The beach is stunning. Water that is the same as a pool.If you venture outside the hotel to the real Cuba you will see the people have VERY LITTLE, so you are living in a bubble at the resort and should be thankful for the amount that is offered. Tip for what to bring. In our Country we give away without a thought what someone in Cuba may treasure for a lifetime. The people in the resorts have the most money, but still they can't buy some things because they just don't exist there or they are extremely hard to find. If you have some room to back tools you would be very popular. We had packed used clothes and toiletries and gave them away on our day trip to Trinidad.

    We just returned from a very enjoyable week in Cuba. The beach in front of this hotel is the best in the area. It is cleaned and there are always lounging chairs and shade available. A beach bar and activities complete the picture perfect water. The rooms are simple but clean and they have an in-room safe and lots of hot running water. Now the staff... they are unbelievable. They are friendly, efficient and treat you like a real guest. A peso tip is always appreciated but never expected. We never had a problem getting a seat in any of the bars or restaurants and the line in the buffet was never too long. The evening shows were great. There was lots of choices of drink and the bartenders were not shy with the servings. The food was good and there was always lots to choose from. My husbands favourite meal was the red snapper served in the Italian a la carte restaurant which is one of three on the premises. I enjoyed the fact that there was always lots of vegetables and fruit and the fresh cheeses were amazing. There is not much to see in the area but if you are wanting a week of sun and the beach, this would be a good choice.

Beach is fabulous white sand lined with a fish filled coral reef several hundred meters off shore. Food at all the restaurants was great-and the buffet was surprisingly good as well (lots of fresh salad stuff for healthier eating!!)

    We will definatly return to this resort when we choose Cayo Coco. We loved the beautiful beach and the friendly staff. The food was delicious. At first impressions we felt the resort was a three, that was only because our rooms appeared to be a little I need of an upgrade. It is a little bit of a walk to the beach, but it is the most beautiful beach we have ever been on. Great service, clean rooms, very good bar service, ample space at the pool, good evening shows, wonderful staff. There is an awesome lobster restaurant with a fantastic atmosphere just a few kilometres from the resort. It's called Playa Prohibida. very resonable for two people including beer Highly suggest checking it out.. This is our first holiday with West Jet Vacations and it will not be our last. From leaving Calgary till returning, every west jet employee was helpful, humorous, personal, efficient, and most of all seemed very happy to make our experience flying with them a great one.

    Enjoyed the very short bus drive from the airport to the resort. On arrival, the Iberostar Mojito reception staff handled everything quickly and efficiently. Our room, closets, mirror dresser and bathroom were good size and clean. Bedspreads and curtains need replacing, they are worn out. Had wonderful sunny weather the whole 11 days, however wind made it impossible to swim in the ocean...red flag for 7 days during our stay. Once wind subsided, we enjoyed swimming in the ocean, it was so warm and wavy. Beach is very beautiful...resort staff cleaned it up once wind subsided. Water is so many shades of green and blue, sky clear blue with occasional white fluffy clouds...a pleasure to walk and enjoy. All pools were very clean, water very cold on most days. Towel service very good, no delays when exchanging on daily basis. Food very good at the Sirena pool bar and the buffet....we always ate freshly grilled fish and meat. Good selection of yummy salads, vegetables, side dishes, fresh fruit, deserts. Bread is the best!!! All kinds, all so very good. Bacon is very good too. We also enjoyed many international drinks! Bar staff were accommodating to mix requested drinks. Cappuccino was great too!! We didn't go to any ala-cart dinners by choice All staff very much enjoy and appreciate receiving tips and presents. We went to yoga and aqua fit...both were fun. They also have many games and dancing troughout the day on the beach and by the pool. Cayo Coco was our 3rd Cuban destination (Varadero, Santa Maria). We love Cuban people, they are so warm and loving and happy...it is a pleasure to be with them for a while. We go to a different location each winter, this is the only reason we will most likely not go back. S, I / S Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada

    We stayed Jan 25- Feb 1,2012. This hotel is in the process of new management with Iberostar. The Emperador side is closed under renovations, they plan on being open sometime between May and August. We can certainly understand why there are so many repeat guests as we are planning on returning in April this year. Check In/ Reception Very smooth. Staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in building 17 and my husbands parents in block 22. There is a money exchange here, but the exchange rate at the airport is much better. You have to buy an internet card which is $6 CUC for 1 hour. There was only 1 working computer and extremely slow. No Wifi. Rooms Our room was kept spotless by Yaquelin. We were on the 3rd floor and had an oceanview. The rooms on the upper floors do not have balconies, but the windows open wide. There is 2 double beds pushed together. Safe is included with the room so no need to purchase the safety deposit box. The villas section 22 and 23 have balconies. Restaurants There is 1 buffet and 3 a la cartes at the present time. There is only 1 specialty restaurant open per day at the moment while things are slow. The food was quite decent for Cuba. I have celiac and always found something. The specialty restaurants always had a choice as well and were very accommodating. The Cuban was our favorite. I also had the lobster dinner which was very good, and nothing like our Atlantic PEI lobster at the Seafood restaurant. The service was top notch. All nonsmoking Beach Beautiful, only a 3-5 minute walk from main resort. lots of loungers. there are sand fleas so bring some repellent. Had an amazing time, if we were to change just 1 thing would be to have no smoking in the disco bar if you are allergic or sensitive stay away. The staff are awesome and are the real jewel of this hotel.

        I went solo again in June 2015 as my husband wasn't able to make it and as a treat to myself after losing my Mom in May. Met up with some wonderful ladies I'd met last year at the same time and met some new friends as well. Weather was incredible! Hot and sunny. No rain while I was there. Like last year, it was very quiet. Maybe 100 or so guests. Just perfect. It did increase on the weekend when the Cubans came to spend the day, but no problems getting great food and drinks at any time. The snack bar has a scaled down menu during these slow times, but more than enough selection to keep me happy with burgers, pizza!!! and pressed sandwiches. It was great seeing the same staff I've come to know and appreciate. When they found out my Mom - who had been to the Iberostar many times as well - had passed away in May, their genuine showing of grief for my loss was incredible. The wonderful singer devoted a song to her when she performed before dinner in the lobby. Truly touching and I thank everyone for their efforts. I attended the repeat customers reception in the Cigar Lounge and enjoyed some excellent drinks before dinner - awesome as usual. I only did that one a la carte as I found the food in the buffet more than adequate - albeit not much mango available the week I was there, but it can't always be in season. My room was in block 21. Same block we had the first time we went. Ground floor this time. Close enough to the action and close to the adult pool. Maid service was impeccable. I had my one day of too much sun (I do this every time) and stayed in the room for the day and when she came to clean the room, I told her I wasn't feeling well and that the room would be fine. She came back 5 minutes later with 2 cold bottles of water and wished me well. On my last day, I was looking for my cell phone when she came to say good bye and she almost had a heart attack when she saw me looking for something. Apparently, if anything goes missing in the rooms, the maids are responsible for it. I told her it wasn't a big deal - just a flip phone, but she was frantically looking with me around the room. Not to worry - idiot me had stupidly packed it in my checked baggage the night before instead of my carry-on. Crisis averted and hugs all around. With the $25 exit fee now included in the price of the package, I had already decided to upgrade to the VIP lounge package on my return flight. Good idea. Flight was delayed by an hour, so I would have more than paid that amount in drinks and food while waiting! Also got a great seat up front and was first off the plane! See you in September for our 10th anniversary (and 10th or so time there)! Looking forward to it! Thanks again for everything!

        I stayed at the Mojito in May for an all ladies family trip. We all loved it. It was sunny and hot, the beach was THE BEST and the staff were great. The food was not the best but it was ok. The cigar lounge is so much fun and the band Tahiti are great! We met wonderful people who will surly be friends for a long time. We would all return again.

            We were meant to go to the tryp, but due to grad students taking over that resort our very helpful sunwing rep sent us to Iberostar Mojito. A big thank you to Carlos, you made our 20th anniversary vacation awesome. When we got to the Mojito, we were treated extremely well. The front desk staff were more than helpful and even though we had arrived at 10:30am they had our room ready by 11am. The rooms are huge and bright, the air conditioner was working very well, overall a nice room. The food was great, a huge thank you to Ariel on the pasta station, my husband says you make the best spaghetti. Yarbely the waiter is a great guy to talk with, he always makes sure that you are looked after, all the wait staff are very attentive. Carlos on the egg station in the mornings makes wonderfull omelets. The cooks gave a variety of items to choose from and the food is very good and tasty. My husband is a soup freak and he was thrilled with having soup everyday even though it was really hot outside. The snack bar is very good too, you can get sandwiches, fries, pizza and hamburgers. They are taking care of all ages. Lizandra was always there to greet us with a smile. Even the mosquitos were attentive, make sure to take spray down as they are pretty bad and you wouldn't want to miss out on the enterainment. I could not find anything wrong with this place, there were a lot of repeat visitors who have been there many times and were going to come back again. Enjoy.

            Snuck a week long trip to Cuba in April. The hotel was clean, the food was alright (they served ham&cheese and other snacks at the bar), the staff was amazing and very friendly! The beach was gorgeous!!!!!! Pool was also nice! Would recommend this hotel. The alcohol was great as well!

                As someone who has only been to Melia/Sol resorts I was excited to try something new however I was not overly impressed with this resort. First off we were moved from hotel Playa to this resort, thinking we scores since this one was a higher star rating. The resort is not beach front, you have to walk through the lagoon to get to the beach, at first I didn't think this was a big deal however I found it prevented us from being on the beach as much as we usually are. It's obviously hot and doesn't smell very good lol. We also found most of the food unbearable (except for the pizza, pasta, omlettes and hamburgers) and we are by no means picky eaters. They also do not have food available 24-7 as they claim. I was sick for an entire day and was unable to eat, later in the evening once I regained my appetite I tried to go to the snack bar and was turned away, told I couldn't get anything to eat from there for 2 more hours. We were also told we had to wait in line outside of the buffet until there was a table available (I've never seen this at a resort) only to finally be let in and to see there were many open tables. We had hardly any water pressure, the water was typically cold, the hair dryer in the room did not work, so I ended up frying my own hairdryer due to the voltage, so showering was super dreadful, time consuming and inconvenient there. We did the catamaran excursion, it was expensive and not that great at all. The food on it was okay, snorkeling was fun, however unfortunately Pilar beach was almost completely washed out (we have been to this particular beach before and it was breath taking so we were excited to see it again) the catamaran had to stop pretty far from the beach, we were told we had an hour at Pilar beach to enjoy, by the time we swam to the shore, got 1 drink, they were blowing the whistle for us to return to the boat (definitely not an hours time). The staff at iberostar mojito were great. We had pool side and beach side service and they were always very helpful. As always the coffee and drinks in Cuba were awesome. The market was nothing special and they did not seem to barter as much as we are use to. Now for the best part of the trip; we took a taxi to a little restaurant hut (I believe it was called lonnies) it was amazing, right on the beach, the food (lobster) was amazing, the staff were incredible, they actually played/sang for our table and we're extremely talented. The men were so warm and welcoming, telling us about their families and even sharing photos. They never asked anything from us. If you go to Cayo Coco you MUST go to this restaurant. You will not be disappointed. I wish we went everyday that we were there. All in all it is a beautiful island with beautiful people, I just would not go back to that resort (however the price was right!!)
