"The best vacation/hotel ever! Deserves to be #1!"
Iberostar Grand is rightfully the best hotel in the world! From the extremly helpfull and always greeting with a smile staff to the large selection of all kinds of good quality food (shrimp, lobster, filet mignon, caviar... just to name a few) at every meal, this hotel really meets your every need. It has different pools and jacuzzi, each has different temperature, even a big indoor pool with jacuzzi and massaging shower heads. Every 30 mins. you can engage in a diffetrent activity, such as yoga, merenge and salsa dance lessons, bike tour, pool games, water aerobics, voleyball, etc... or just relax in a shade in the quite area. There are also ping-pong table, darts, billiards, and for 1 hour a day you can go sailing on a catamaran for free.
What I loved about this hotel is a variety of animals on premesies, I dont't think you can feed them, but I did anyway. I hand fed iguanas, peacocks, coatis (an animal I never even heard about before), cats, birds, and even a little monkey you can take a picture with.
Out of the 4 restaurants, we liked Italian thd best. Japanese was ok too, more on the entertaining side at the hibachi table. French and Surf-Turf weren't that good. I think buffet has better food. Good top
shelf liqour brands is served throughout the hotel in unlimited amounts. I have 2 tips for future travelers: 1. take a lot of $1 bills for tips 2. Taxi costs $40 from airport to hotel, dont get ripped off like we did.
