    Staff is what makes this place the best!! We miss you all already!! 🥰
    The staff here is what made this trip the absolute best!!! Yery, Angelica and Sheena were my absolute favourite people! The staff in the snack bar were also amazing!!! Such great, entertaining staff all around! Views are amazing! I really enjoyed the Michael Jackson tribute. Definitely a beautiful place to go to relax and wind down from everyday life!

    Nicest beach by far.
    We travelled end of dec 2023 and had taken a package for the catamaran day trip. One of the only highlights we had during our 7 day stay at the Imperial . The lunch was very good the boat trip fun and exciting the animator awesome...you sexy chickens( you know who you are) and to finish up on one of the nicest beaches I have ever seen well worth the package or even the money to rent the beach chairs(yes they rent them in the shade) and stay for the day.

    Pristine White sand
    Pilar Beach is about 8km from Iberostar Daiquiri and is a short cab ride there. The beach is wide and had long sand dunes with pristine diamond white sand and goes out for about 1km (similar to Turks and Caicos and Grand Caymans). The waters are blue and you will have to pay $5/pp CDN for a lounge and palapa if you want. However, you can bring a beach blanket as well. There are catamarans and paddle boats you can pay to use as well. There were some crowds but there is enough space for everyone there and the view is of Half Moon island. There are some catamarans that can ferry you over for $30 CDN for lunch or $40 CDN if you want to snorkel as well. There is the Pilar Restaurant as well but didn’t eat there.

    Stunning!
    Playa Pilar is a place I would recommend anyone to visit if you are in staying in Cayo Coco/Cayo Guillermo Cuba! For our family, it was only a 5 minute drive away from our resort. The beach is stunning, the white powdery sand and crystal clear waters are so beautiful. We saw some starfishes while we were there as well! The bar on the beach has really good Piña coladas, it was the best one I had during our whole stay. It’s really worth going off the resort you’re staying at to spend the day there, I totally recommend it and hope to go back!

the biggest disappointment was the lack of access to the ocean and the loud loud music by the pool and in the lobby bar. Also the entertainment was not even adequate. Food was good, and there were no flies or insects. Toilet would not flush properly after 4 days. they tried to fix, but the fix did not work.

White crystal sand and with clear warm water. You have to rent a cabana and chair as it is a private beach. You must also try the beach restaurant especially the lobster.
