There is no excuse for the lack of customer service and regard for the well being of customers at Iberostar. Hotel refused to be accountable for minor and major mishaps. Cleaning man walked in on myself and a friend without knocking or announcing himself, whilst we were completely naked. Both myself and my companion took a covid test two days prior to departure early in the am. We were informed we would receive the results same day by 5:30pm . Thank goodness we did not wait until the day before we were scheduled to leave to take a test, as we only received the results for one person that evening. By the time 5:30pm arrived, I proceeded to inquire about the other test result at the testing center, however they were closed. I then inquired about the other test thru email and received no response. In addition the test result we did receive had incorrect personal identification information which caused issues with the airline. Taxis provided by the hotel are unreliable. Staff is nice but will pretend they do not understand you when there is an issue that needs to be resolved. Grounds are nice. Service is bad. Rooms are subpar at best. The cover for one of the light switches was falling off, refrigerator didn’t get cold, mini-bar consisted of two Dos Equis and a few sodas, air condition wasn’t working correctly, and we couldn’t even keep the balcony door open because people were constantly smoking in non-smoking rooms. To add to that we got into a car wreck in one of the hotel taxis on the first night and weren’t even offered Advil to relieve the severe whiplash and facial bruising that we encountered. To make things worst the hotel staff and management was privy to all of these issues and did absolutely nothing to improve our stay or compensate us for a ruined vacation in any form or fashion. This review sounds outrageous but this horror story is indeed not made up. All in all avoid this hotel at all costs, unless you desire to have the worst vacation of your life.

Hotel's Favourite
We were 4 ladies on a “family girls trip”. All in all, we had a fabulous time. Our check in was a little slow and our room was not ready at 2pm, so we ate lunch at the buffet and then it was ready. Our room was very spacious and clean. We had 4 of us in one room and it really worked out fine. There was a tiny balcony (standing only) with a view of the pool and ocean. The bathroom was a little worn, but didn’t bother us at all. Our housekeeping staff did a great job of keeping us in towels and keeping the mini bar stocked. Lots of fun activities! Pool games, fitness classes, night time entertainment. All of that staff were very friendly and interacted with guests frequently. We really enjoyed Luis, who lead an Aqua Bike class in the pool (very fun) and poolside Zumba! Highly recommend both of those! The gym was small and I found it a little dated and drab. It was adequate, but only went once as it was nothing special. And lots of fitness choices from the fitness staff. We ate at the Italian restaurant, the Steak House, the Japanese Hibachi restaurant and the Mexican restaurant. Best was the Japanese, followed by the Mexican. Italian was average. Steak house disappointing. Mashed potatoes tasted like out of a box mix. Steaks not done right. Sides not very good. The buffet was okay. It was average. I didn’t lose weight, lol, but nothing was like “wow, this is delicious”. The bars was plentiful and served good drinks! Pool bar was a big hit! Speaking of the pool, it was the highlight! HUGE! Separate area for activities and kids time. The larger area in the infinity area was beautiful. Never seemed crowded at all. We took floats to use in the pool. All in all, I recommend this resort. Beautiful, friendly and very environmentally aware!

Beautiful property. We booked the presidential suite and we’re looking for a great week away. The reservation was messed up from the start. We booked for 4 adults and 3 kids. Two days before we arrive they reconfirmed 2 adults and 1 child and 2 babies. Not sure what happened with the other 2 adults. After 2 days of phone calls with no one to answer. we decided maybe we could fix it in person. But sadly no. When we arrived David at the desk was unable to correct it or get anyone above him to come to the lobby. After an hour I paid the higher fee just to get in the room. But the room was fantastic. 3000 sq ft. Large nicely decorated. But when we started to shower there was no NO WATER. What???? No water on the 9th floor. There is one AC unit each for the 2 bedrooms and 1 unit for the common area. One side the AC didn’t work at all. So we have finally been in the room for an hour and one side is hot and neither have water. Call the desk and no response. After a while I go downstairs and try to get the hotel manager to talk to. No luck. Finally Miguel the assistant to someone tried to help. Rallied the troops and the found a water pump not working and tried to repair the A/C. Remember this is the Presidential Suite. It seems like there is a lack of maintenance on everything. Then we open the refrigerator and it has a glass partially full of water frozen in the freezer missed by housekeeping. But the bottom drawer of the freezer is frozen in place. Again housekeeping missed it. So within the first 2 hours at the property they have messed up our reservation, put us in a room that had no water, 1 AC unit not working correctly. So on Wednesday they worked on the AC and water. Neither one was fixed. On Thursday they worked on the AC and the water. We did get some hot water part of the day. So progress no change on the AC. Again remember this is the best room in the property. The presidential suite. On Saturday the water was hot and had full pressure. Today they were kind enough to tell me that the two rooms were using different thermostats and I was too STUPID to know how to turn the unit to Auto. But it was fixed because they turned it to auto. Now that means the other 4 days their own staff was to STUPID to know how to set it also. But the Saturday crew was the smartest of all and now it was fixed. Sorry it was not fixed and there was still a 10 degree difference in the two rooms in the same suite. So Miguel tried his best to correct the problems but the building needs maintenance that couldn’t be preformed today. If you interested in good service and we’ll maintained property this is not the place for you. And the bad thing is I ask for the manager the first day and never has the manager reached out to me. Terry 919-606-5945. I am again asking on Monday for the manager. Who know if that person will respond
