It has taken a long time to write this review, however better late than never. I had visited the resort for the first time with my mom a few years before and it was a wonderful time. The next year I returned with my husband. After a bumpy first few nights (loud partying people down the way), we were moved in the 8000 block and loved waking up to the sound of the birds. One year away to try Jamaica, and I returned again with my mom. It was the first time I used a travel agency and it somehow got booked under my mom's name ..... could that be why we never were recognized as a return guest until I mentioned it? And even then it was done with hesitation like I was being dishonest. A simple check with my last name should have done the trick. We had 4 visits from the increasingly hostile security for a malfunctioning safe - absolutely ridiculous. Our shower plugged up and had to be fixed. Our ceiling was dripping onto the floor leaving a water puddle. We had to walk over a towel or I feared my mom would slip. There was water that did pool in the walkway and she fall one day. 2 maids just looked at her and did nothing as she picked herself up. We walked by countless doors that had WELCOME BACK on the door. Not us. Yes, it seems petty, but it is nice to be recognized along with the others. Food = great Horseshoes or bocce ball = not great. The staff sure does not like losing and will cheat just to win which leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Yoga on the beach = great Water aerobics = great Evening entertainment = great Golf cart with luggage to front desk = great Returning for year 4? No way.

So blessed to visit this resort again and celebrate my birthday in style. I was very spoiled by my the friends I have made during my multiple stays at this resort. The surprise birthday cake made my day! big thank you to Cesarin. He does such a wonderful job in the main buffet. He shows all his staff how to treat guests. Excellent job! I really appreciate Generoso for taking such good care of us in the restaurant. Such a kind man. Glad to see Erik again in the bar, he always has a smile and is in a good mood! I am always drawn to the happy people that work at your resort. Keep up the good work Iberostar! Other great bartenders; Williams, and many more. What can I say about the entertainment staff, they do such a good job. They try to make you happy and accommodate so many different people with so many different like and dislikes. Hulu hulu is a great boss and has the most respect from his staff, they really like to work hard for him. He is so kind and very good to my family too! Really like some of the new additions Calizan is very entertaining and has improved since January, catching on very good to the shows. Have to give a shout out to Pepsi, he always treats everyone so kind and makes you feel special. So glad to see him. He has a very special place in our hearts! Make sure you keep your good staff, that is what brings us back!

We are loyal repeat guests. The main reason we return here is the excellent service we receive. It is also a small resort which is useful when I travel with my elderly mother. We both looked forward to returning since it had been a couple of years since we had visited. Check-in was fast, we didn’t have to wait for our room. Our room was on the ground floor, not too far from the beach and facing the pool. Always kept clean and had the pleasure of towel decorations as a thank you by our cleaning lady. The grounds are kept immaculate, loved seeing the peacocks wandering around the resorts and the orchids were in bloom. We kept to the El Mercado (the main buffet restaurant) for breakfast and dinner as there is a good variety and selection of food. Muchas gracias en particular a Kennedy por el excelente servicio que nos has dado. Lunchtime buffet is at the Restaurante Tropical (near the pool). Muchas gracias en particular a Dulce! The beach wasn’t crowded. No seaweed, but a lot of waves. No trouble in finding shade, either at the beach nor by the pool. Gracias a Glen (Zumba). The Animation Team is hard-working, friendly and engaging. The hotel can be proud of their team! We were there at the beginning of the COVID situation. Hand sanitizers were available all around the resort, everything was kept clean – no complaints at all. It was sad to know that the hotel had to close, tough for the employees. Hope everyone is safe. The staff is friendly, courteous and efficient. The service was excellent – my mom was treated like a queen! I have nothing negative to say. We shall definitely return.

My wife and I flew from Hamilton, Ontario. Stayed two weeks. We went on a fishing excursion, just ask Transat rep and he will set you up. Scuba lessons at the great pool for free. If you go on the snorkel/Scuba excursion in Sosusa there is a fee. Horse back riding and tour was nice. Pool and beach area were great, go early to get your chairs. No problem getting towels. Food was good , servers were very always helpful. Room was very good. Fridge was stock with beer and pop everyday. Ocean front view 2nd floor WOW.

My wife and I were here for the second time in 3 years. Still an amazing resort - beautiful location, awesome and very friendly staff, great food and shows, and the staff accommodates to all your needs. No issues at all. Had 2 days of rain and the staff still did all the day time activities under the huge theatre they have. Had the best buffet restaurant server, Generoso, again. Will definitely be going back for a 3 rd time next year.
