The Iberostar Playa Pilar is a recently built resort which rises seafront in Cayo Guillermo, a key that together with Cayo Coco and other small islands form the archipelago Jardines del Rey (King's Gardens), off Cuba’s north coast.

Access is possible through Cayo Coco's international airport, then taking a causeway connecting both keys. Or by land using a longer causeway (17-kilometre long) that links the mainland to Cayo Coco, then taking the mentioned causeway between Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo.

Cayo Guillermo is known for its natural beauty, amazing coral reef system (one of the largest and best preserved of the world), and for hosting Playa Pilar, a truly gorgeous, idlylic beach which took its name from Hemingway's boat, since the famous American writer used to fish in the area.

Playa Pilar is at least a 30-minute walk from the hotel (when the tide is low enough to allow walking along the shore). Otherwise there’s a double-decker bus that takes only a few minutes. Its schedule and price are on display at the main desk.

The resort itself has no access to a large sandy beach. There is a very attractive boardwalk that leads to a small yet beautiful beach. From the sun beds placed all along the boardwalk, guests can enjoy the incredible views of the sea, read a good book, go snorkeling.

The nautical centre offers pedaloes, canoes and catamaransas part of the inclusive package and excursions to a nearby reef to snorkel, for an additional fee. Totally worth it!

There's also a marina, 3 free-form swimming pools + 1 children’s pool with water park, a SPA, various sport courts, a wedding gazebo, mortorcycles for rent.

Rooms are truly beautiful, comfortable and well equipped. There are 482 total and are spread among 15 modern buildings,

Last but not least, staff is friendly, hardworking and would go out of their way to make you feel at home.


Bring insect repellent (just in case).

Having your own snorkeling gear would be ideal since there are lots of fish in the hotel's rocky shore.
