We stayed at the Iberostar Mojito from March 28- April 4, with 2 adults, 4 kids ranging in age 16-10. As soon as you walk into the lobby you're going to be overwhelmed by the beauty of it! I loved the mosaic windows.
Check in was very efficient and we appreciated the nice cold welcome drink that we got right away.
Rooms: we requested two connecting rooms and we got what we asked for. We had rooms in the 1100 building, and that was great because it was nice and quiet at night. Yes they were a little bit run down,but very clean and the shower worked great. The kids had no complaints about their beds and slept great. My husband and I didn't sleep that good for a few nights because we got a backache from the old mattress. But after we mentioned it at the lobby,we got an extra mattress to put on the bed that same night! After that we slept way better.
Food: I already wish we were back in Cuba and the food has a lot to do with that!! We had lunch at the snack bar almost every day and its delicious. My husband and I loved the fish of the day,it's to die for! The kids enjoyed the pizza,hotdogs,hamburgers and fries. The food at the buffet is great as well. Again the fish at the grilling station is the best!! Breakfast was excellent as well. We ate at the some table everyday and had a very nice waiter! Hope you're daughter is feeling a little bit better! The gentleman at the egg station is the best,so nice and you make the greatest fried eggs and ommellets! Our son misses you already and he also misses his friend at the snack bar who he always went to for a nice cold lemonade! The smoothies made to order every morning were also greatly appreciated,thank you 'sexy boy'. We tried all 3 a la cartes and liked them all,again if you like fish,go for that,that's always delicious. Drinks were always good for all of us. Lots of juice and lemonade for the kids to choose from.
Pool: very clean and inviting. Only participated once with aqua jogging led by Mandy, but that's only because I was being lazy. It was a lot of fun! But also a lot of fun to watch!
Big downside is the 'reserving' of the chairs, it is extremely annoying and frustrating that ignorant people rush early in the morning to put towels, shoes,books on the chairs and actually believe they have a right to do so even though the signs say that you can't. We had breakfast at 7.00-7.30 every morning and by the time we were done there were hardly any chairs left. Please Iberostar staff do something about this. Put a security guy there to reinforce that rule and you'll have a much better atmosphere after a while when it's clear to everybody that the signs aren't there for show.
Beach: beautiful beach. The walk to the beach is fun as well. But again 'reserving' of the chairs ,which is ridiculous!! Easy to prevent here as well,because there are lots of nice gentlemen to help with getting you a chair,they should be able to make sure not all the chairs in the shaded area are being 'reserved' by putting towels on them. It wouldn't be such a nuisance if they were being used within ten minutes or so,but they go empty for hours. Really some people should be very ashamed of themselves. But enjoyed the beach all the same because its hard not to! Took long walks. Swam and floated in the water,it's so clear! Enjoy the fish you'll see while swimming!
Spa: went to the spa with my youngest daughter. If you get the chance: go for it,you won't regret it. Beautiful and very close to the resort! We got a facial and foot reflexology it was so relaxing!
Our oldest loves horses so she did an hour of horseback riding which she enjoyed very much.
She rode at the beach too,that was a huge bonus!
My husband took our three girls on a boat- snorkeling trip while our son and I stayed at the pool.
They had a great afternoon and got to keep their snorkeling gear,nice!
Overall our experience was great,it's true,all staff works very hard to make sure you're having the greatest holiday possible! We loved to hang out in the lobby,they are so nice and remember what you like to drink. Entertainment at night in the lobby is very good,wish it was longer then an hour though. I loved to see Ismael and Neisy perform!! They are the best! Saw them last year when we stayed at the Melia and it was great to hear them sing again.
I would recommend this resort to everyone because its fantastic , we love Cuba and especially the people!! Thanks to all the Iberostar Mojito staff for making our holiday great,we miss you already!!
