For diving excursions and unspoiled beaches, there are fewer places more idyllic than Cuba’s tropical island of Cayo Guillermo. The 4-star Iberostar Daiquiri provides the perfect opportunity to experience the picture-perfect island, offering chic and elegant decor and a mix of family friendly facilities. As well as an expansive outdoor swimming pool - complete with swim-up bar - the Iberostar Daiquiri has a pool exclusively for children, as well as an on-site sauna and relaxing spa treatments. Four buffet and a la carte restaurants give holidaymakers the chance to sample a range of international cuisine, while Iberostar Daiquiri guests can also take part in countless daytime water sport activities and evening entertainment.
Found off central Cuba, Cayo Guillermo is a tropical island that’s located in the Jardines del Rey archipelago. It’s popular with both beach lovers and divers thanks to its crystal-clear waters and vibrant marine life. Luckily, Iberostar Daiquiri sits just metres away from the beach, giving holidaymakers plenty of opportunities to enjoy everything Cayo Guillermo has to offer. The island’s secluded location offers the chance for some peaceful R&R, although there’s a variety of sights and attractions nearby. Laguna flamingos wildlife centre is a two-minute drive away, while the dolphinarium is just a few minutes further on.
There are 312 rooms available at Iberostar Daiquiri, from Double Rooms overlooking the pool or hotel gardens to Superior Rooms that offer beach views. Each of the rooms are warmly decorated with colourful wall decor and plush furnishings, and feature either one king-size bed or two queen-size beds.
