It is a bit off the beaten path. Taxi fare to all excursions got expensive. If you are content to chill at a nice resort this is the place for you. The food was good for the most part. The Mexican restaurant was the worst one there. The buffet was good. Plenty of variety. Enjoyed the entire stay. More>

All the rave reviews are spot on. Iberostar Playa Mita delivered in spades.

We are a family of four with kids aged 4 and 9 and we stayed a week in July. We were looking for some beach and pool time but also wanted some adult luxury thrown in but still kids friendly. I know it's a lot to ask but I think Iberostar Playa Mita did it. We avoided the run of the mill resorts near PV and instead opted for further afield Playa Mita (extra 40-50min shuttle ride from airport) but was rewarded with miles of perfect beach. Also, even at full capacity, the hotel never felt crowded. Pool definitely got busier towards the weekend but even so. Staff were all superb, friendly, professional, never felt any pressure of tipping or needing to join tours etc (although some were offered). We were offered to upgrade to the beach front view junior suite. We did since heavily discounted and got top floor beach front which is amazing. I have to say the view and location of the suites (near pool and beach) were fantastic. That said, i noticed most of the rooms are of similar small size. It's adequate but they're not huge rooms. If there is one complain I would make, it's the size of the rooms. For family of 4, kids are not running around in it. But then again, just enjoy the outdoors. Food wise, after a week we were ready to try something else but there is plenty of variety and the quality is fine. Don't expect fine dinning but the choice kept kids occupied and the options gave us some variety. Critical especially given it's location, going out is not that easy an option. The Japanese tepanyaki restaurant was probably the best of the lot although the French (adults only, no kids under 12) is a nice change. We just hired a baby sitter for USD20 per hour (for 2 kids). The surprise is the buffet was probably the best consistent service. Going out of the resort requires taxi rides 15-30min rides away and taxi costs USD20-USD30 one way. Shuttle service is offered but times are more restricted. The kids club was great - staff were great, various arts/craft/play activities. There is a kids pool/play area and there is a shallow end of the adult pool. There is also a teen room (PS3) as well as a pool (snooker) room. The evening entertainment needs work ie. lack lustre but again, it provides distraction for kids and something for us to do after dinner. Kids TV is limited since most channels are in Spanish. Wifi is great so we used our ipads. But bring a book!!! No DVD player in room. My tip would be to book your dinner restaurants on arrival. Bring your own entertainment e.g. books, cards, etc and enjoy the beach! It's a lovely resort, nicely done and staff were in general the highlight. Well done Iberostar. More>

Fantastic Experience at the Iberostar

We went to the Iberostar Playa Mita last week to attend a destination wedding. The hotel was a 1 hour drive from the airport which was not bad as we were in a nice air conditioned shuttle. If you want to be close to the main town and shopping than don't stay here as it's quite far. But if you are not interested in shopping then this is the resort to go to. It's safe, clean, rooms are nice, fantastic views, great food, bars, beach and pool. The staff was excellent and provided great service. Nightly shows were excellent and entertaining. They had a kids pool, games room, and pool table room as well. They also have a medical center on site with great doctors. Had to visit them for a medical problem and they were very good. We rented the sea-doo one day but made the mistake of going out later in the afternoon so the water was very rough. Interesting experience but a bit scary. If you are planning on sea-doo then go in the morning when the water is calm. Nearby town of Playa Mita has great massage places. $30 US for a 1 hour massage. Many members of our group went twice for massages. They had free Wi-Fi throughout the resort but some areas had very weak or no signal. Overall a fantastic experience and I look forward to the next time at this resort. More>

Mexico perfectly done!

Fantastic holiday, fantastic hotel, food and customer service ❤️ We had a great 2 week holiday with everything we could have wanted. I would recommend this hotel to anyone - can't wait to return. Activities unlimited with bike rides, shooting, archery, diving etc - to many to list. Amateur but very entertaining nightly shows with a Latin feel disco till 3am. Deserted beach to relax on with surfing waves to improve your body boarding skills! 👙🕶 More>

IBEROSTAR Playa Mita, MX: Great Vacation(7 days) & 25th Anniversary Celebration, part 1.

Awesome Vacation! 6/30 - 7/7/16. Awesome Place! Viva Mexico! Dalila, the best House Keeper ever, made fantastic Oragami towel items and put rose pedals and beautiful flower arrangements in our room. Mi esposa estaba muy feliz. Thank You Dalila! Stunning location! Very secluded . . .yet just a short ride to interesting towns/communities/sites. CHECK-IN - Very easy. (FYI: The drink they serve you during check-in has no alcohol in it.) The bellboys watch your luggage while you check-in. When you finish check-in, you go back to the main entryway and a Bellboy will put your luggage on a cart and walk with you to your room. GETTIN' PESOS - Check-in is a good time to exchange your currancy for pesos. Currancy exchange is at the check-in counter. Note, they must see your passport the first time you do an exchange. Also NOTE, THEY ONLY EXCHANGE CURRANCY FOR CURRENCY. They don't do cash advances on credit cards, they don't accept a debit card, and they will not put it on your room tab. EVIL DEBIT MACHINE - There is a debit machine in the lobby. However, there is a $6 service fee for the debit and a $25 charge to exchange currency from a foreign country, USA. EXCHANGE RATE - The hotel gives a pretty good exchange rate. For US currency they only charged about 1.5 points. At the airport they charged 3 points. BARS - Bars were great, very liberal with the top-shelf. Glenfiddich is available in the Lobby bar. (Personal note to Bourbon drinkers: Jim Beam white label is the only Bourbon available. Bring your own bottle of Makers Mark or whatever for the room. A week is a long time to go without your favorite pour.) GREAT BUFFETS - Something for everyone - fruits, vegetables, salad bar, broiled and grilled meats/fish, pizza, spegetti, real ice cream, smoothies, cereals, breads, Mexican, Spanish (Iberostar is owned by a company in Spain...kind of ironic if you are up on mexican history), American, Italian,  curry,  etc. We ate heeping mounds of guacamole 3 (or more) times/day. (Spoiler Alert! My only real complaint: Hey Iberostar restaurant managers , make sure all serving bowls/trays are monitored/stocked with the food item and clean serving utensils are available. This issue was consistent at the main buffet and the buffet by the pool. No gusto empty guacamole bowls.) More>
