Back from Iberostar Daiquiri questions anyone?

Hi just got back last night had a wonderful time if anyone has any question please don’t hesitate to ask.

glad you had a great vacation how was randy and lazaro

Hi Lazaro was a blast. He was by far the best waiter at the buffet during supper time. It was fun going to his corner and enjoying the meal. He always wanted to escort our wives out of the restaurant after supper.

i was talking about randy and lazaro at the pool bar

Sorry but I did not see them. I always dealt with Liever, Felix and Alberto. The others I dont recall their names. There was one guy that was amazing , he could catch an ice cude with a tong. from far away. Amazing…

Hawkowls

were they at the pool bar all day or later in the day, for the last 4 years or so Randy and Lazaro worked the pool bar from morning till about 3:30 in the afternoon and they can both catch ice with a tong

were you at the beach all day at the pool later in the afternoon

I was mostly at the pool but did not catch the names of all the bartenders there exept the ones that I mentionned . They are the ones that got my attention as they gave me the best service and were very friendly.

Just boodked for the ID leaving March 28…just a couple of questions
Which restaurants are available for lunch…just buffet
How do you reserve for the alacartes…I believe there are 2 or 3
Do you have to pay to use the safes in the rooms.
What room were you in…any info I’d appreciate first time to CG and ID
Thanks in advance

sunny there is a safe in the room 2CUC a day ,there is 3 but i have read the one at the beach is closed for repairs not sure, lunch is usually buffet and beach bar but as i said not sure if beach is open,you reserve them in the lobby in the morning, the camaguey building is great close to the buffet and close to beach and pool the best room is 3369, the others that are good are 3376,3365 they are all on the third floor and 3261,3259,3957 on the second floor hope this helps

Hi First of all there are 3 ala carts restaurants. The Mexican situated next to the buffet , the Italian situated near the pool and the Cuban situated on the beach. For Breakfast , dinner and supper you can eat at the buffet which is very good. You can eat breakfast and diner at the Cuban on the beach which was also very good. The Italian sometimes serves diner I know that almost everyday you could eat there. They were announcing seafood day and BBQ day at least twice when i was there.

The Mexican ala carte and only serves supper.

For reservation they are taken near the front desk between 10.00 am and 12:00 Pm If I were you reserve the first time it is open because they go fast. For an example we arrived on Sunday and i was in the line up on Monday and could only get a reservation for Friday and Saturday at the Mexican and Italian. We could not get a reservation at the Cuban so book early and you may get lucky.

Safes are available for 2 pesos per day payable when you leave.

I was in room 2244 in the Baracoa building. It was beach front and the very last one to the right. It was OK but the rooms were old but they were clean. I heard that the Camaguay and Holguin building have some renovated rooms.

hopes this helps.

:slight_smile: Welcome back hawkowls! Glad to hear you had a good time. Are you a Cuba convert? Did you do any excursions or go off the resort? How was the beach? We look forward to a review and maybe some pics? :-*

I’m not sure I’m a Cuban convert just yet. Read my other post " thing you should know before going to Cuba" Yes i took a new tour called Pillar Plus. Its a combo of the speed boat tour and tour of Pillar beach with a lobster dinner and 2 drinks for 59 pesos. It was fun but the dinner was cold and not very good. If it would of been hot it would of been another story. The beach was nice at pillar and at the ID. There is a lot of seaweed that washes up on the shore but they clean that very good. We found that the beach at ID is better then Melia because at high tide the Melia does not have much room but there is plenty at the ID.

I loved my vacation…

hawkowls is the beach bar - Cuban restaurant open i read lately that they were putting the windows back in and it was closed

Yes the windows are back and the bar and restaurant is open the whole time we were there. We ate there almost every day.
