Our family vacationed at the Iberostar from dec 12- 22. The hotel is set up with small units of bungalows. Each room has its own patio with a hammock and a couple of chairs & small table. A nice place to enjoy a bit of quiet time. The specialty restaurants where OK, the Steak house was the best. We had no trouble booking reservations for when we wanted them. My husband and daughter went diving and had a wonderful time exploring the reefs. Snorkeling at the hotel beach was disappointing, most of the fish congregate under the dock and there are signs not allowing swimming under the dock. We were prepared for the rocky entrance into the ocean from past reviews and used the ladder on the dock. We booked one snorkeling tour through the hotel (3 reef - $40/person) and it was wonderful. Experienced guide and very beautiful day! We also paid a visit to Chankanaab Park which is very beautiful with wonderful snorkeling! The entertainment staff is fabulous and are great with pool games and evening shows.The only disappointment was the food. We've traveled throughout Mexico and have come to expect that the buffet food to be bland. But each one of our family of three came down with debilitating food poisoning on separate occasions during our 10 day trip. My husband got sick on Dec 17 after having dinner at the buffet. I got sick after breakfast on Dec 20 and our daughter got sick on Dec 22 after breakfast, the day we left. This is the one reason that we will never return to the Iberostar although we loved the location, staff and amenities.
