“LOVED THIS PLACE!”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

my boyfriend and I took a trip to Cayo Cojimar. We wanted sun, relaxation, water and good food. and we found it all here. This is NOT the place to go if you are 20 and want to party, it IS the place to go if you want relaxation. Food was buffet and was good, home cooked food. Nothing fancy, but all fresh local dishes. (you are in Cuba....you want Thai, or mexican or kraft dinner stay home :) The staff were fantastic, the rooms clean. The beach AMAZING. We never had a problem with getting a pool deck chair. There are 3 resorts on this island (Cayo Guillemaro) and you can easily walk to them via the beach. (its quicker and prettier) There is no bank at this resort, but at the next one there is. Seriously 15 min walk up the beach. Open Mon-Fri, 9-noon and most afternoons till 3. We have already looked into going back next year.

This is my second time at this resort. I only have good things to say about it.
I went in 2013 and again this February 2014, 2 weeks each time.
Renovations were made this year and the place really looks attractive.
All the employees are friendly, always smiling and ready to help if there anything.
Considering that that it's not a 5 * hotel I find that for the price you can't ask for better.
The only thing I could mention : it's suggested that you always carry some Kleenex with you, the toilet paper is not always available. But, it's not a big thing, just buy them at dollar store before leaving !!! I love this place and many people dooooooo !!!!! I will return next year !

Room Tip: I could suggest either the " habitacion " similar to a 2 sided bungalow. If you prefer a...

Nice and clean hotel. Beautiful shallow ocean and white sand beach. Very friendly staff. Food and drinks good for the value. Pools clean and not overcrowded. Overall good place to visit for the price. Be prepare for Mosquitos and beach fly bites. That's the only annoying thing there.

Room Tip: Choose upstairs room with ocean view .

We upgraded to a bungalow. Mistake! It was dark, some what dirty and very small. The food was mediocre at best and not presented well. If you like fish, french fries and a salad less salad bar you will be fine. The resort has just changed hands and is in constant repairs. The staff are from the first group and are not happy people and in general it shows . The pool was great and the beach was good but a bit dirty. Many biting insects - bring your fly spray. The rooms have the same problems with insects and there are so many cracks and openings that it is almost impossible to keep them out. If you bring any off your concerns to the front desk they laugh and say that is what you pay for! The flight down and back with Sunningdale was great but their representative at the hotel could care less about you unless you are purchasing an excursion. I rated this trip at 2 stars and that was stretching it. This is the first time we were looking forward to going home and we have traveled a lot.

We flew with Sunwing and spent Feb. 20 to 27, 2014 at Allegro/Cojimar. We were packed in the B737-800 like sardines, but it was great to fly directly from Regina.
The hotel was very good value. The accommodation, food, pool, beach, drinks etc. were great. It was very easy to overeat at the dining room. The staff did all they could to serve us. The entertainers - singers, dancers were excellent.
There was no internet or money exchange at Cojimar. The bank near the neighbouring hotel gave very poor service. Our side trip into Moron was expensive and not very exciting.
Tourism is so very important to Cuba. The people know this and are very kind to us sometimes demanding, and generally overweight, visitors.

We are a family of 13 who went to the resort now called ALLEGRO CLUB COJIMAR. We had 4 children go with us.
The good parts:
Resort was laid out so you were never far from food ,bar, the beach or pool.Hotel rooms are actually smaller 4 plexes spread out around the whole complex. One of our group got a room almost on the beach , another got the ground floor room of an 8 plex about in the middle. 3 other got villas ( duplex wooden cabins on the east side of the resort). All rooms had showers (lots of hot water). The pools (2) were great with lots of loungers. The buffet was good with lots of choice of foods and drinks.The beach was good for the kids (could walk out 1000 feet before it got waist deep), had loungers there also. The staff were very friendly and helpful(most times)

The bad parts:
One room had a toilet that would not flush. We asked to have it repaired with no result, then asked for a different room with no result. (as ways told to come back tomorrow) Because we had rooms close together we shared another toilet.
About 6 of us got bitten a lot by bugs. 7 got bitten a little. Bugs seemed to be around the furniture in the lobby area and outside the main complex. Not by pool or beach.
Since I'm an electrician I always look for Cuban type wiring. Everything looked proper except a couple of broken receptacles.
If you like swimming in the salt water ,the beach being so shallow would not be good for that.
Could not get money exchanged at this resort. We had to walk down the beach to the next resort. Not really a problem for us but to get enough small bills for tips was hard on a daily bases. They would not even change larger bills for smaller ones unless you bought something.
This means that you did not have change for tips after a day or so.
The pool did not have much shade around it. (I always look for shady areas)

Room Tip: If you take the standard hotel room , pay the extra for ocean view as you are right on the ocean.
