My wife and I stayed here for one week in early April 2013. We loved it.
First, the staff are phenomenal. The Iberostar has several people called "Star Friends", they are fun young people who socialize with all of the guests and are a great reason to stay here. They set up volleyball games, teach water aerobics, and set up contests for the guests. I have not stayed at another resort with so many fun young people.
The resort is one of 3 resorts that are all connected. This is the adults only. We loved this as both of the other resorts seemed to have lots of kids. Guests from the Grand can go to all of the other resorts but not vice versa. The other resorts also looked nice, but not quite as nice as the grand.
The food was great. I think that I had lobster nearly every night in some form, several times accompanied by filet mignon. The wine was OK, I have never really been thrilled with the wine at all inclusive resorts and this was not an exception. All of the other drinks were great (and included). The lunch buffet at the Iberostar was nothing great, and was one of the only disappointing aspects of our stay, however the chef who grilled at poolide for lunch was awesome. Much better than the lunch buffet.
We were also pleased with the entertainment. Every night they put on a show of some sort. The resort has a Las Vegas style theater where the shows are done. One minor complaint, is that you can never really know when a show (or any event) is going to start. Island time.
The location is great, very nice beach, beautiful water, hills across the road. We did not go off of the resort, mainly because there was really no compelling reason to leave. The area did not really seem like a good place to walk around. The resort is out of the city about 15 minutes by bus. Nothing is really within walking distance.
We have previously stayed at the Royal in Cancun, and the Royal in Playa del Carmen. This place is certainly on par with both of those (outstanding) resorts, possibly slightly nicer.
