Nice hotel, beautiful territory, good food

Posted Nov 26, 2016
We stayed at building 6, that was our second time at this hotel, rooms are clean and comfortable. Everything is in good condition but not brand new. Food is good and the choice is pretty decent but local vines are terrible. Beach is great, clean and have enough shade, water is clean and shallow. The lighthouse bar at the beach is always too crowded and the staff there is less nicer than in other bars, could do better. Kids club is available, my kids 3 and 6 y/o spent there 3 hours and didn't get bored. Pool is good however we prefer ocean so can't say much about the pool. Overall everything was good, I would recommend this hotel.

Beautiful beach and water

Posted Nov 16, 2016
Pros: The beach and water was best I have ever experienced, I have been to Mexico, Jamaica, Aruba, The water was warm, calm and clear
Cons: Room renovations, Restaurant service in the Colonial, Better drinks,
This iberostar is supposed to be a premium resort. I have been to many all inclusives including Iberostar Rose Hall Suites 3 times. That is a premium resort! At the buffets, the cold cuts and cheeses all coagulated making it very un appealing if not unsafe. The "Goumet Restaurant had the most awful service I have experienced. Not only do they make a big deal of giving out a reservation to this, they said they had lobster on menu. They do, but as a cold fruity appetizer. We were a party of five women and the staff , did not pull out chairs, place napkins, rolled eyes when we had to ask for more water, etc. They never brought out one appetizer and argued that it was because you can only have soup or appetizer! Never experienced this at all inclusive and was never told when ordering We skipped dessert and went to buffet for dessert. We tried the Mexican, which was pretty good, and the steakhouse, just ok but both had very good service. The frozen drinks at all bars were bad, very watery. A strawberry daquari has no strawberry in it! By far the worst drinks I've had at any all inclusive. The best meat and most fun was the Paella party for lunch, finally got the lobster! The rooms were small and the bathroom small and in need of revovation, the toilet handle broke the last day and the faucet was ancient. On the positive side, The Star Players were very good, friendly ad work very hard

Location: Great location. Dive center inside the hotel makes a huge difference for me.
Love the hotel! For sure we will be back, maybe next year. We stayed at Viva and Catalonia before, but Ibero is better then those two. Food is great. Service the best. Thumbs up for Jacob of guest service and Vicmar of front desk. We just wish we have a room closer to the pool. We invited 7 friends to go with us and they loved also!

Not so great. Next time will try something else.

Posted Oct 9, 2016
Location: Not so much to do.
The food was so monotonous and boring and sometimes not so fresh. Мany flies around the food! Also the garden paths weren't clean enough. In the shower the water didn't go away quickly and you are standing ankle-deep in water. Very few TV channels in English.

Nice beach. Beautiful garden

Posted Sep 8, 2016
I liked beach and staff intertainment program. Hotel is small but kept well. No waves so its great for small kids. Wifi was not everywhere so u have to look for spots that got coverage. My daughter forgot her cell phone and upon my phone call was found and returned by fedex to me next business day. Great service.

nice resort

Posted Sep 8, 2016
Pros: beautiful clear ocean
Cons: no breakfast at the beach until 10am, which forced us to go inland to the buffet that has no AC and is very hot. buffet really needs more ventilation
Location: scuba dive at the dive center and get certified.
nice resort. Ocean is beautiful with clear water. Nice light house bar. Many fish right at the beach. Entertainment is good. Nice dive shop to get certified. Would be better if they served breakfast at the beach. buffet really needs ventilation, it gets really hot where food is. People were sweating while getting their food.
