Iberostar scheduled to open in December 2013

This project was started in 2005 and then abandoned in 2008, lleaving the shell looking awful, but now, it is swarming with workers. The Spanish owner of Iberostar invested $100 Million dollars in the project

It is located about 10 minutes north west of the Palladium, in Litibú which is off the road between Punta Mita and Sayulita.

The resort will be beach front, immediately beside La Tranquila. It will presumably be a five star, family friendly, all inclusive luxury resort, similar to the other Iberostar hotels in Mexico.

Wow, that's interesting. Quite the hike from the airport, I wonder if their prices will be similar to the Palladium?

Fubob, you realize I´m sure that not all of the shells are Iberostar. La Tranquila is directly next door. When I was there there a few weeks ago (we had a day pass at La Tranquila) there were people working in all of the Iberostar sections. And lots of them. Busload after busload of workers come every day.

this has made me go hummm... i was looking into palladium for new years but if this is actually going to be opened, i may just have to try it before i can't afford to go there when prices go up;) on their site it said they were taking reservations starting in may but nothing on their site yet. curious on what intro pricing will be ?
