Beautiful grounds, pretty good snorkeling, fantastic wildlife abounding, wonderful staff (especially the Star Friends who must be among the hardest working folks on the island), great massages, comfortable rooms, and good food!! Room for improvements??? Sure, but great resort and very affordable considering that you are in paradise. One thing I would say is that when you are as far removed from town as Iberostar is a working ATM on grounds (if not several) is essential. The ATM was in-operational and was very inconvenient when we wanted to take out money to travel into town once we had gone through the funds we brought with us. We rented a Jeep reasonably through the hotel and other activities could be booked, as well. Might be cool if they had scooters and/or dune buggies available there, too. It is true the rules for making reservations at the sit down restaurants seemed a bit constraining, but we were able to make them without too much trouble. Also true there is little a/c available with the exception of our rooms (a/c worked great) and one restroom near the pool, but we are not that fancy and were happy for the most part. The Mexican restaurant was fabulous (though barely air conditioned) but we were used to eating in the open air buffets so no biggie. When we travel to Cozumel and the like we are trying to escape what we are used to here in the USA and do not expect the resorts to be like the Vegas strip on the beach, which is why we chose the bungalow-styled Iberostar with abundant wildlife tucked far away from the hustle and bustle of town. We were not disappointed and had a wonderful time. Myself, my husband, and my best-friend travelled on this trip and we will return to this gorgeous, spacious, intimate resort again...
