We have been to this hotel twice now, only 25mins from the airport and a reasonably quick check in and staff makes you feel very welcome and this continued throughout our stay. Rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean and attended to daily. There is a selection of restaurants and if you cant find something you like you're maybe just a... More

When we arrived, we were greeted with welcome drinks and got help immediately bringing our luggage to our rooms when requested. The rooms were a little dated but nothing wrong with them at all and they were also very clean. There was food on offer 24/7 and there was a good variety of food in all the buffets; The a... More

Our family of 4 stayed at this all-inclusive five star resort in early June 2014. Overall it was a very good experience. The hotel decor, lobby, rooms etc were very nice but not the "wow" we expected from a supposedly 5 star rated Iberostar. Maybe our expectations were too high. The Hotel is well situated on a clean, beautiful stretch... More

I have always had the impression that Iberostar Resorts are world class hotels catering to international travelers. This may be the case for their other hotels but certainly not this one.My lady friend and I were greatly disappointed right from day 1 of our one week stay. A person can have problems with any hotel you can visit.What makes the... More

We spent 7 days at the Iberostar with elderly parents, four adults and one child (16 y.o.). The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and we had two sets of adjoining rooms on the first floor which we requested. I have requested this set up before at other Caribbean hotels and we have had four separate rooms in different buildings!! The... More
