My family visited the Iberostar Cozumel the last week of July. Since I read so many reviews, thought it was appropriate to post my own. We took our children (10 and 3) and the grandparents. We requested rooms by the pool which were accomodated.
Rooms - the rooms are small and could be a problem is you pack a lot of clothes. We traveled light so it wasn't a problem. The AC worked well and we actually got chilly at night. The beds are hard, but as my husband said..."not hard enough to complain about or get a back ache." There is a hair dryer in the room but you may want to bring your own since the one provided is not very hot or powerful. The mini bar was kept stocked with what we requested. I gave the maid a tip at the beginning of the week and we were treated great.
Pool - the pool is nice and the swim up bar is quite handy. I was disappointed that the pool area was not cleaned nightly. In the morning, cups from the previous day were still littered around the chairs.
Restaurant - we tried the steak and mexican restaurant. I would not suggest either. Since the steak restaurant is not air conditioned, it was very hot and uncomfortable. I also did not think the selection was very good. We tried the mexican restaurant, but the kids and grandparents left hungry. They could not find anything on the menu they liked. The big restaurant was hit with everyone. The selections were good and the kids always found something they like. I think I saw chicken nuggets at every meal!
Bar - I was a bit worried about the alcohol selections at an all inclusive. I have to say that the Iberostar had many top shelf liquors. The selections were very good.
Diving - we have visited Cozumel for many years and have always used Dive Paradise. They picked us up at the dock without any problems from the Iberostar. My son took the intro scuba course and became certified. The dive center at the resort was awesome with him. I can't say enough good things about how they treated our son and watched over him in the water. Thanks Jonathan!!
I would highly recommend renting a car and going to the other side of the island. The beach and surf is beautiful. There are several little food/beer joints that are a lot of fun. My 3 year old slept on a hammock on the beach for 2 hours. Great pictures!
This was a great resort for the family and the Iberostar treated us well. I would definitely recommend for families.
