I stayed at this hotel during the last week of March with my best friend. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and happy. We booked all of our restaurants on the first night with no complications. The service was outstanding everywhere with special compliments going to Ricardo at Nopal who daily went above and beyond to meet our expectations. As a celiac I often struggle to find chefs who know what is in the food or has been cross contaminated. This was never a problem at the buffets. I would be asking about food and a Head Chef would run over to me and tell me what was possible or not possible to eat. This was incredible to me. They even made me a separate meal at the Japanese restaurant so my friend could enjoy the meal, but so that I could dine as well. Tremendous service. Belfry was our waiter at the Mexican restaurant and I can't say enough about his service or the food we received. The only service complaint I had was one evening at the Gourmet, but it isn't anything that I would dissuade someone from going to. The grounds are impeccable clean and the views extraordinary. A place for Baileys and coffee in the morning would be encouraged and potentially higher quality liquor being available at other bars than the lobby bar. That being said, I have no real complaints and I would not hesitate to recommend this to someone headed that way. The activities team goes above and beyond to ensure everyone has a great time. Special kudos to Gerardo, Armando (both at the towel hut and activities boss).
All of you made our vacation wonderful and I cannot wait to return. I am jealous of all of you heading down that way soon. Keep up the great work.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a group conference and it was great! The staff is among the friendliest of any resort I've stayed at. Ricardo, and Martin particularly stood out because they went above and beyond all of our expectations!
The pool is great. It's very spacious and they have plenty of activities happening all day long. This resort would be great for families because they have a really great kids water park. The resort is quite secluded though & therefore it probably wouldn't be my first recommendation for a young couple or a set of friends travelling. This is a great resort for first time Mexico goers who are skeptical about how "safe" Mexico is!
The food at the resort was pretty good. I really enjoyed the Japanese a la carte. It was very entertaining and I left extremely full. The steak house was not bad, but I wouldn't have ate there twice in one week.
Rooms were clean, spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable.
The disco was so much fun! The gym was quite small, but it had all the equipment I needed!
Would recommend to others because I thoroughly enjoyed my time there!

On Friday March 21st, 2014, we were approached on the Iberostar pool deck by Kevin the assistant manager of Dressel Diving. He told us about the various water adventures they offered down by the beach. The one that caught our attention as a family was the snorkelling and whale watching. This package cost the three of us $450 USD. Kevin the assistant manager told us that it was a small private boat that they operated and the maximum capacity was 10. We would be provided with snorkelling equipment, a guide and beverages. So we went down and signed up for the next day (Saturday, March 22nd).
The boat was a 12 foot open hull fibreglass fishing boat that had seen better days. It was at least 15 years old. There were multiple fibreglass patches in side the boat to repair previous damage and it was not particularly clean, with visible stains. Our guide spent the entire trip speaking to the father of the other family. At no point did the guide tell us about the geography or the history of the area with regards to Mexican nationals, Spanish colonialists and American imperialism. Once we got to the snorkelling area, our guide was very implicit that we stay near and frequently look up to find him. He said this was important so we didn?t get lost or separated from him. This is a problem because the small island has an even smaller area roped off for snorkelling. In this area we found multiple other tour groups and when we were in the water there was probably 200 other people in a ¼ mile area. Dressel Diving called it a reef. If there was a reef, it must be very small and we never saw it. We snorkelled along the rock edge of the island and the water was murky and there was not a vast number of fish. You were frequently getting bumped by other divers
When we got back on the boat the beverages consisted of 3 bottles of Costco water. There were so many groups and boats there that a woman had lost her group and boat. Our guide offered her a ride back to our resort on the mainland. This did not seem unusual to our guide. So our experience in the water was not very relaxing due to the large crowds and lastly the fear of losing our guide and boat. I spent as much time staring at my guide as the fish in the water. Compare this with our experience at the Iberostar Ensenachos in Santa Maria: for $80 a person we went on a catamaran with an open beverage bar, that took us snorkelling to a clear reef with lots of fish and onto a private beach, then onto a dolphinarium where we swam with the dolphins and had a lobster lunch. We expressed our concerns to the manager (Leonardo Gallo) at the Iberostar Playa Mita and he was sympathetic of our concerns. In fact he sent us a bottle of tequila, a couple of Iberostar t-shirts and then booked us into the various resort restaurants for our remaining 10 days. This is our third stay at an Iberostar resort and we continually recommend them to our friends and family. There staff and amenities are always first class. This is our first tarnished experience, but we were quickly directed by staff to use Aventura Puerto Vallarta. The sea life adventure we had there was an incredible experience and my 14 year old daughter says she has one less thing on her bucket list.

Did not know what to expect in my first "all-inclusive" experience, but loved it. Beautiful property, great service (Max - bellman and Felipe Arechiga at the Concierge desk and Cesar at El Nopal were standouts) and excellent breakfasts, lunches, drinks and activities. I enjoyed the Yoga, Water Aerobics, Dance Classes and Ping-Pong. We also were thrilled to be able to borrow a Scrabble game and play by the pool. That being said, they need to bring the level of service and food quality up for the Specialty Restaurants. We tried all, but Pacific Express and they are not up to par with the rest of the facility. We loved our Ocean Front room and falling sleep to the sound of the waves crashing on shore. We will be back!
