“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

I was pleased with the service, food, cleanliness, and activities offered at Iberostar Cancun.
This hotel offers great value for you money. Employees are trained well and are very helpful and polite. About the only complaints I have is that there was not a tennis pro available and there was no pool table. The beach was beautiful but the surf is rough and there is a strong undertoe.

I traveled with a group of 5 wonderful women celebrating a "decade" birthday the first week of November. I can't say enough about this beautiful paradise on the beach! Located about 15 minutes from the airport, we arrived in the lobby before 10 am. Yummy drinks were brought to us, and we were actually able to check into our rooms immediately. The Iberostar Cancun is by far the most immaculate resort I have ever stayed at. The security and safety at the resort is such that I would feel totally comfortable traveling there solo. The staff treat you like royalty!! Special thanks to Francisco, Caramelita, Arturo, Alberto, Hugo, Gabriel, Jesus, Brisa, Javier, Marlon and too many others to mention. The birthday gal was serenaded by the Mariachi band and they even took special requests. The wait staff is so impressive. They can't do enough for you. On our last morning before heading to the airport, our breakfast waiter surprised us and came outside to our table with a bottle of champagne!!! We've previously gone on cruises together, but no more. This was the ultimate vacation and all-inclusive to boot. There's so much to do, great activities and shows! Stayed for a week and I never once left the resort. The dining options were amazing. Breakfast at the buffet was a favorite of mine as well as the specialty restaurants. We were able to get reservations at all four with no problem. My only complaint was, unfortunately, that I had to leave the Iberostar Cancun and go back to reality. We were so impressed, we are already planning a return visit!!!

We have stayed in Cancun 5 times, usually at the RIU Palace. The Iberostar was significantly superior. The Hotel is immaculately clean, the service is kind and hotel maintenance was there in 5 mins when we ordered a roll a away bed and within 5 mins when we locked ourselves out of our safe.
The Food was the best ever. So fresh and such a variety. All of the restaurants were great. We especially enjoyed 'Sunday', one of the staff. We were served by Sabastian and Rafael in the Buffet and were well taken cared for. Isabella at the front desk was knowledgeable. Even the bar staff remembered what you liked to drink.
The most impressive part was the beach. It was so clean. The lifeguards saved two lives in the water while we were there and that is absolutely PRICELESS!! They watched everyone in the water like hawks and were so thorough.
This was an amazing resort. Can't wait to go again. Your Hotel can make or break your trip and this one made ours.

This is a great place for a getaway. The beach is on the southern zone of the hotel zone, so the water is blue and clean. Food 10 times better than any cruise ship that I have been on. so many options during the day with all the activities that the Star Friends host, and then at night their is a theater show including games and magic shows, etc... I would go back there any time.

Hotel was beautiful, 15 minutes from airport, breathtaking lobby,( marble floors, ivy growing from 1st floor to 9th floor , across from each other). Lots of seating in lobby where you could sit and enjoy your drink. Rooms immaculate, beautiful view of ocean. Only downfall was that my daughter and I reserved junior suite with hottub, upon arrival we were given standard room with ocean view. I have to contact Expedia because we upgraded to suite on site (we thought) however our paperwork stated standard room. It wasnt hotels fault. I just dont want to get charged for suite if I didnt get it. Personnel at hotel so pleasant. Food was ok, prefer American food more. . Would definitely return to Iberostar!!!

My husband and I are in our 60's and have vacationed in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area at least 15 times. The thing that impressed me most about Iberostar Cancun was the excellent service. The people who work there actually acted like they wanted you there and were happy to work in the service industry. We have traditionally experienced faster service at this time of year as opposed to March or April because it is much less crowded and that was certainly the case this trip. Plenty of empty lounges at the pool and beach and many shaded areas as well. Infinity pool is beautiful and view from pool bar looking out to ocean is great. Beach is wide and beautiful with soft sand but there is a steep incline at the shore to get into the ocean and the sea is quite powerful - not great for little ones or non-swimmers, but it didn't stop me from getting in and jumping and riding the waves. Life guard on duty. The lobby is gorgeous with polished marble and a 10 story (or so) atrium with a bar and lots of sitting areas. Free wifi in lobby but not in rooms. We stayed on the 5th floor in the wing overlooking the conference center. The room was very comfortable but did not have a sitting balcony - you can open the sliders and stand out on the balcony but there is not room for table and chairs. All rooms have ocean view. Next time I would opt for a room in the wing overlooking the pool at the very least and would consider booking a full balcony overlooking pool or a jr suite in that area. The villas looked nice too. They are 2 or 3 story ocean front as opposed to high rise. Housekeeping service very good and public areas of the hotel scrubbed and shined. Only complaint here is bathrooms by the pool/Mexican Restaurant - old and rather nasty. There are restrooms in the buffet and behind the beach bar that are very nice.
We enjoyed the food in the buffet and at the specialty restaurants and everyone we talked to liked the food as well. Actually it was some of the best food we have had at an AI. Drinks were good too - anything from frozen concoctions at the beach bar to a nice martini or mimosa from the lobby bar. Frig in room stocked with water, sparkling water, soda and beer. We met some lovely people there (of all ages) and everyone agreed that the hotel was fantastic. Even the younger crowd had fun and went into Cancun for trips to clubs which they said were outstanding. I'd say the majority of people were couples ranging from 30's to 50's but there were some 20 somethings and a few families. There was a great kid-pool area - very shallow with slides etc.
I will definitely consider returning to this hotel.

We have stayed in Cancun and Playa Del Carmen several times. We read a lot of the reviews before we made a decision on this resort. Both the good and bad reviews. We don't understand the people that rate this hotel a 1, 2 or even 3 stars. The place is beautiful! Very clean. The beach is perfect! The pools area is large as well, with plenty of small "off shoots" to the main pool area and seperate kid pool area for you to find peace from all the action that happens at the main pool. The bar service at the pool and beach was excellent. (3 seperate bars service the pool and beach area) The events staff was fantastic. Very friendly and respectful. (Even though I broke my pinky finger playing water polo. That's a rough sport!) The restaurants and food was very good. In particular the restaurants that you need a reservation for. The service in these restaurants is top notch! Very romantic and will contend with any top restaurant you have ever been in. The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job with our room. To sum it up, consider this resort the more sophisticated side of Cancun but yet not "stuffy". But please do not be swayed by any of the negative reviews. Those folks must be the type that complain about the color of the car they just won! We would go back to this resort. No question.
