I love my stay at the Gran Muthu Imperial. This was my first time at an adults-only resort, and I recommend it, especially if you want to relax. If you are looking for lots of entertainment, this is not the place. There are some at the pools and in the lobby at night. The nightly shows start late (9:30 pm), so I would have preferred they start earlier.
The staff was truly very nice and welcoming. We had the best waiter at the Buffet (Ernesto). The view from the pools (especially the infinity pool) was amazing. Had an ocean view from my room and it was great. The food well, they do their best with what they can get and I'm fine with that. I’m not a picky eater. If you are coming to Cuba with high expectations, then don’t bother. However, the Cuban people and the beaches are worth it. The ham and cheese sandwiches at the Snack Bar were very good. Needless to say that is what we had for most of our lunches. The omelets, waffles and pancakes at the buffet for breakfast were great. Not much to do around the resort although there is a small market at the resort next to ours (Gran Muth Cayo Guillermo – family resort) and there is also a bus that takes you to the market in Cayo Coco. Playa Pilar was beautiful. The beach at the resort is not that bad. I have read some negative comments, but I thought it was fine. You can access it to the left of building 5. It is rocky at first so you need some water shoes and if you keep walking you are good. We did 2 catamaran excursions: the day one and the sunset one. Simply AMAZING! Best catamaran runs I have done in all my travels so far. We got the same boat for both excursions, the Kon Tiki. That crew was so much fun. The sunset from the evening run was beautiful. Muchas gracias to Alex, Angel, and Johnny from the Kon Tiki.
All in all, this was a great stay. The most relaxing vacation I have had to date. I do recommend this resort. The staff work hard to keep it nice and clean.
Excellent staff and service

a big shout out to Chris the Director, Liusbis general manager, Ronnie and Ernesto in the buffet. We thoroughly enjoyed the vibe and atmosphere at this resort.
