The Iberostar property is about 20 mins from the airport so the transfer is quick. If you have purchased a return transfer within your travel package, I would suggest taking a cab instead. It's US$35, readily available, and you won't have to be prepared to leave the property way too early so you can be delivered to the airport 3 hours prior to your plane's departure. There are no activities at the airport that will keep a child occupied for 3 hours.
Waterpark, Kids Club, Lazy River, Kids Pool Activities and Kids nightly disco are excellent for the kids. The Beaches property is more cost friendly (and does not offer access to the Waterpark/Lazy River and Kids Club) but the Suites property offers more for kids. The one pool at the Beaches property also does not have a good shallow end for kids to play in. If you have a family, the Suites property is a no-brainer.
Rooms are all suites so they are roomy. Be sure to close your balcony door all the way to activate the air conditioning. On especially humid days, condensation does build up on the the tiled floors so be careful. Tiny ants have a way of gaining entrance into your suite. This seems to be a common problem so just ask maintenance to come and the issue will become non very quickly. Bring some extra clothes/toys for the Housekeeping ladies. They have families too. Cosmetics are also appreciated.
Daily buffet is very good. The Chefs will try to accomodate as best as possible if you have special requests or have a favourite from a previous day as the options do change. Breakfast is great with the omelette bar and the variety of juices and smoothies. Speciality restaurants include Japanese, Mediterranean, SteakHouse, Mexican, and Gourmet. All are ok but surprisingly I found the Mexican to offer the most variety and tasted the best. Don't expect triple A prime beef at the steakhouse.
Beach service for drinks is excellent with servers coming by frequently. Create your own drink as there are so many mixes/fruit juices, etc. available. The bartenders at the swim up bar can make whatever you ask.
The beach is a combination of soft sand and fine shells. The water is beautiful but be mindful of the debris and cloudiness of the sea after a rainfall or storm out at sea. It takes a few days for the beach and water to clear. In the meantime, you will have to evade the endless vegetation and seaweed that seem to follow you wherever you are in the water.
