So much has already been written about this wonderful resort. As a frequent traveler to the Mayan Riviera over the past 14 years I hope these comment are helpful to you.
I often hear people ask, is this resort better than that resort, or is it “the best”. I can tell you without any reservation there is no “best resort”, everyone’s experience will be different based upon things you like.
What the Iberostar Grand will deliver is “the best balance” of all things. Is the pool the best, no but it’s awesome. Is the beach the best down there, no but it is very nice. Is the food the best, once again no but it ranks right up there with the best.
If you’re trying to decide on an adult’s only resort I can tell you that this resort is the one to book. In every category it ranks in the top 5 out of the 20+ resorts we have visited down there. The X factor will be the couples at the resort at your time of visit. It has been our experience that we meet so many new friends from all over the world here and the resort set the stage for a unforgettable experience.
Can I nit-pick at some things here, of course but when you have hundreds of guests passing in and out weekly anything to nit-pick is irrelevant. The resort strikes a balance as close to perfect as possible for this area.
One thing I will rave about is their buffet. Although the ala Carte restaurants are very good we actually prefer to just go to the buffet here. The options and food quality is better in many cases. The cooks are standing by to make you whatever you want. Lobster is abundant at the buffet as is many other delicious offerings. We like to load our plates in short time rather than guess what is coming. Most buffets I would avoid for dinner, not here.
This was our second visit here and for us it is really rare we make a third visit, we will here. If you’re new to the area or on the fence I want to reassure you that this resort should get first consideration as a great all around place to visit.
