The IBEROSTAR Playa Pilar is in Cayo Guillermo on the North coast of Cuba. Opened in 2015, this is IBEROSTAR’s latest Cuban property and joins 10 other luxury IBEROSTAR resorts in Cuba. The perfect choice for a relaxing vacation, The IBEROSTAR Playa Pilar is right on a long stretch of one of Cuba’s finest beaches. Also known as ‘Playa Hemingway’ after the American writer, this heavenly white-sand beach is said to have inspired “The Old Man and the Sea”.
Cayo Guillermo is one of the most spectacular and best preserved islets in the Jardines del Rey archipelago in Cuba. Together with the surrounding islands it forms part of the Buenavista Biosphere reserve - home to a wealth of wildlife including spectacular pink flamingos. There are as many as 12,000 flamingos living in the park – the largest community of these birds in Cuba.
The island offers wild natural areas and the world’s second largest coral reef, which is 400km long. So it is a paradise for scuba divers and lovers of water sports at large. Playa Pilar itself has 15 metre high sand dunes and is ranked as one of the top 25 landscapes of this type in the world.
The trail network will help you explore the island or you can explore the natural terrain by jeep. Cayo Guillermo Dolphinarium is located in the south within the nature park, and this is the seventh (and latest) dolphinarium opened in Cuba.
There is always perfect weather in Cayo Guillermo! In this slice of heaven, sun is guaranteed all year round. The water by the shore is always warm and, due to the lack of wind or ocean currents, there is virtually no swell.
Cayo Guillermo is the perfect destination to get away from it all and forget about stress and routine. Just lie down on a lounger in the white-sand beach and stare at the mesmerising crystal-clear water, protected from the sun by a generous coconut tree and rocked into slumber by the sea breeze. You will only have to think about what cocktail to sip or what book to read.
