My boyfriend and I just spent an amazing week at Tryp hotel, Cayo Coco. July 27-August 3. We had read the usual bad reviews prior to going away (which you will find anywhere you go) but decided to judge for ourselves. We could not have been happier in all aspects. The Staff were all friendly and courteous. No problems with our check in. It was fast and efficient and our room was ready upon arrival and located in the area our travel agent requested. (block 11, quiet pool area).We had no problems with our room. The room is stocked every day with a bottle of mineral water.As for all the bad reviews we read on the food, it could not have been more wrong. The food was in no way bland, and the variety offered was plentiful. The alacarte(s) we went to were great! Romantic ambiance in both the BBQ Grill and Seafood locations .Lots of activities throughout the day if you are looking for something to do in the resort.. We went on the Catarmaran excursion which we enjoyed, including the snorkelling and seafood lunch on board.
Night life at the resort was good. Evening entertainment provided (not forgetting the kids, they started off with fun stuff for them) then continued with a great troupe of dancers. There is also the disco if you so desire. There is an abundance of lounge chairs around the pool, but limited amount of shade umbrellas. There could be more of those, as the pool area is a very open area with limited shade. The grounds keepers were wonderful. Super friendly, always had a happy greeting every time you saw them. We actually had one run up to us and handed us both necklaces he had hand made as a gift!!
We would advise you to bring a bug spray, you do get quite a few bites but that can't be helped.
The only issues we had was the lack of clocks on the resort. We had to go to the reception area to find out the time. An alarm clock or clock in general would have been helpful in the room also.
A list of drinks posted at the bars would have been helpful too. (Cuban specialty drinks)
We will definitely return to Tryp in the future. It was a wonderful week, and we wished we had a few more days to stay there.
