I will start this review but letting you know I have stayed at many all inclusives including other Iberostars so this is not just me being picky on things.
We arrived in the off season on Nov 1st at around 3:00 pm and had to wait about 20 mins in line , I would hate to see it during busy season but that was ok it was comfortable in lobby. LIke others have said, there was no welcome drink so you will have to wait to get your armband.
It was very nice room with a really nice bathroom, super clean like other Iberostars. We requested a king size bed and got it and I thought it was comfortable. We were on on top floor facing carribbean but you have limited view of ocean due to a large roof under your room. We had the junior suite and it had a huge balcony. The problem we had was with the bathroom lighting , it is very dark in bathroom and really the whole resort. I read about the lighting in another review but dismissed it but it is true.
Lobby and grounds:
It is huge , clean and really nice. This lobby and grounds are nicer than the Iberostar Cancun in my opinion , its just the lighting again, it really dim. I think they have like 20 watt energy bulbs in whole resort and it just makes it hard to see at night.
Casino and shops:
They have a small casino with a number of shops where you can buy suncreen , shirts etc.. These were all nice.
We ate at Mexican, Japanese and Steakhouse. They were typical all inclusive but not bad and you do have a menu to actually pick from in restaurants. The staff was really nice in restaurants also. The only issue we had was at Japanese , we had reservations at 7:00 but waited almost until 8:00 until chef started our food on grill.
They had nightly shows and they were not bad. They have a really nice theater and the bartender at the bar is really good.
I had the same problem at Iberostar in Cancun, The lobby desk staff just act like they dont care.
It is not a deal breaker but you would think they could be a little friendlier to everybody in general.
If you go to this resort in off season keep this in mind. I went down to lobby bar at 1;15 am and the entire lobby was dark . I was in bar one night about 10;00 and I was only person in bar, so if you are wanting a crowd of people to hang around at night do not go in off season expecting to see that. It was ok with us , I figured it would be somewhat deserted but I was shocked at how few people were there. We had great weather which I was worried about for first of November.
Overall , it is a really nice clean resort that is really huge with pretty good food. . Keep in mind this is large resort so you lose a little of the small resort feel but each one has it pros and cons , its just whatever you are looking for. But in my opinion , in Rose Hall the Rose Hall suites would be hard to beat. And by the way you are , 20 to 25 mins to airport, feel free to send me any questions , I know it is a hard pick trying to decide based just on these reviews.
