A PERFECT VACATION!
Posted Jan 8, 2016 on Hotels
Staying at the Iberostar Palace was like being on a dream liner cruise ship that you could get on and off when you desired. The hotel is massive, but run with incredible efficiency and care. Our sea view room was great! Our room was meticulously cleaned each day and on a couple of occasions we returned to our room to find towel animals intricately created awaiting us on our bed. One day we even returned to find that the manager had given us a beautiful potted gerber daisy, thanking us for staying at the hotel...so very thoughtful! The breakfast, which was included, was beyond amazing with cava, caviar, fresh salmon, homemade fruit smoothies, fresh eggs and breads, fruits, yogurts, and pots of coffee or tea awaiting us each morning. We opted to not have dinner at the hotel so as to experience the local cuisine from the neighboring villages of Jandia and Morro Jable. Many people choose to "hang out" at the beautiful pools and participate in activities being offered by the staff like water aerobics, water polo, wine tastings, and cooking classes, but we elected to walk a hundred meters to the beach instead. We participated in a couple of the evenings animation presentations, Michael Jackson and Beatles tribute band, which were fun! We felt we were well taken care of and given permission to forget all of our worries, a perfect vacation!
