The room service club sandwich was oustanding! Slices of bacon as thick as my finger, stacked high with veggies and meats...delicious! I wanted to make the whole review about the sandwich but I guess I can try to contribute something useful. We've been to Mexico five times over the last four years and this place was the best by far (other resorts: Royal Playa del Carmen-average, El Dorado Royale-above average, Riu Palace Cabo-average, Crowne Plaza San Jose-awful). The artwork at the Iberostar Grand feels like walking into a museum in Italy. Everything is spotless and relentlessly cleaned. The rooms are spacious with large decks, great for sitting (we had partial ocean view). Great variety for restaurants. We are not huge foodies but I got very accustomed to my lobster tail and kobe beef burger lunch everyday. One day we tipped a beach waiter $40 and he brought our group bucket after bucket of Corona and even made us nachos from the lunch buffet...great service. It's not a huge party resort but drinks are readily available and town is a 15 minute shuttle away if you want more nightlife. Didn't use the spa but swam in the indoor pool which was a nice break from the sun. Very peaceful and quiet resort. No problem getting places by the pool or on the beach. There are, of course, the people who wake at the crack of dawn to reserve "their" place by the pool that they won't use until noon but not enough to interfere with a daily agenda (sidenote: you people know who you are and really need to find a greater purpose in life). Overall, the Iberostar Grand is as close to perfect as it we've experienced in Mexico. Definately on the pricey side for Mexico but worth it.
