If you need a break from the all-inclusive buffet of your resort, this quaint beach ranchon is a perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal and cold drinks in a friendly and casual atmosphere. The Parrillada (Grill) Cuba Libre is located on the beach between hotel Iberostar Daiquiri and hotel Melia Cayo Guillermo, and at walking distance from the hotels Sol and Sercotel. You can get to the Ranchon by the beach from these hotels. If you’re staying in another hotel, you can take the panoramic bus called Jardines del Rey Bus Tour, and ask the driver to drop you off in front of the Ocio Club Games Center, the Ranchon Cuba Libre is just behind the mini-golf, there's a footbridge leading to the beach and the ranchon.
Because of its location (near a few all-inclusive resorts) they have sufficient traffic, so it's usually easy to stop there for lunch without reservation because they stock more food than other more isolated ranchons. However, the place can be quite busy during peak season, so they may sometimes run out of some items in the menu, just ask what’s available. If you plan to eat there (especially for dinner), we suggest going the day before (or earlier the same day) to reserve a table and order your meal in advance.
