TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Harvey extends our stay...
Sweetadvior, Spring, Texas
Fri Sep 08 20:05:50 EDT 2017
We absolutely loved 99 percent of our stay at the Iberostar Punta Mita. This was our first time staying at an all inclusive and the first time using United Vacations. Because of Harvey and living in a suburb of Houston, it was a unique experience. Our 5 day vacation was extended to 10 days. Perhaps it is because we are older and inexperienced international travelers, but the process of extending our stay and securing tickets for the return flight was extremely stressful. The United Vacations representative at our hotel (who we did not even know existed until Kim, the Iberostar PR person escorted us to him) was polite, but not helpful. He said we had to work through the hotel. The hotel said we had to work through the agency. Finally, after emailing United Vacations Help line, a Kristen answered very kindly and contacted the hotel in emails which motivated the hotel to offer us the hurricane distress rate. We loved the ambience of the hotel. With the exception of a couple front desk gentlemen, everyone was friendly, kind, and helpful. Because we chose to participate in activities such as yoga, water aerobics, salsa dancing, ping pong tournaments, pool volleyball, we really got to know and like the Star Family Staff. Victor, Milton, Nancy, and Ruby became friends. Milton actually joined us for breakfast in the restaurant by the pool on several days. Two of the concierges that really stood out were Ana and Jesus. After sharing difficulties I was having with WIFI and my phone, Jesus offered to look at my phone and in a couple minutes had it operating properly. Our housekeeper Veronica was so sweet and efficient. We had upgraded to an ocean front room (not junior suite) 2153. My husband would gave preferred 3rd or 4th floor, but we were told they were unavailable. We loved being able to go out on our balcony and hear the waves. Our view was marred by the open roof VIP area directly below, but it was still beautiful. And our location was good, a short walk to the pool or beach. It was a longer walk to the lobby and restaurants, but covered and actually a good thing with so much good food and drink. We loved walking on the beach, even though it was not the cleanest. We felt that was one area the Iberostar could improve upon...taking care of their beach and the walk to it. We are not picky eaters and we loved most of the food. We preferred the restaurants and had no difficulties getting reservations. Pacific Express was our favorite but the Mexican was a close second. We also loved the lobby bar at night, especially when they had live music. The swim up bar was great, too, and always busy, but the amazing bar tenders were fun to just watch trying to keep up with the orders, always with a smile. We met so many wonderful people from all over. It's a great place for families and I would love to return with our kids and grandkids. We would highly recommend the Iberostar!

Great week!!!

Just returned from a week here and I have to say we had a great time. From finding baby Michaelangelo (baby turtle) in the pool on our first morning to watching an amazing sunset on our last evening! The staff were all amazing and so friendly. Aldo was amazing in helping us out with our vegetarian daughter Claudia was amazing around the pool The star friends were all great especially I ally ruby! ( Elliott says hi!!) My one and only critisiscm was how noisy the corridors were outside the rooms and we did happen to have a very inconsiderate group of young Americans that were very noisy in there coming and goings ( did complain once but not sure anything was done as it continued) It did not in any way spoil our stay was just annoying!! It was our first trip to Mexico and it was lovely walking along the beach seeing Pelicans fishing Humming birds around the gardens and magnificent species of butterflies! Food was good and we had no trouble making reservations at speciality restaurants and tried them all so only only ate at the buffet restaurant twice in the evenings do didn't get bored with food which can happen with all inclusive. All in all despite mediocre weather we had a lovely time!!

Stayed here in July for a week and the first time my other half and I have ventured to try an all inclusive. This is only because we like to have a choice where we eat and an all inclusive is obviously restrictive to this. Therefore picking somewhere that had at least 3 restaurants was a must. The hotel is so far away from everything, you have no choice but to eat here or else face a 45-minute cab ride to anywhere that has restaurants. The food would be best described as OK, with perhaps the French restaurant standing out. The food there was generally very well presented and cooked to good taste. The others, not so good compared to the French. The buffet is poor although there are lots of choices. The first night we had to eat there due to no reservations being available and we felt most of it was inedible. The sushi in the Japanese was very bland, but the octopus was fantastic. The steakhouse is also a nice place to eat as generally the steaks are cooked how you ask for them.... There is nothing worse than asking for a rare and being presented with a medium. In terms of staff in the area - very, very low. If I am laying by the pool/beach, I would expect service often with someone continuously being there and seeing if you need anything. This is not the case. There is generally one member of staff for the pool area and one for the beach taking drink orders and bringing them round. You'll have more luck getting up yourself and walking to the bar twice+ before someone even comes round to you. Having said that, staff members are very polite and always happy to assist and help you with whatever you need. It sounds simple, but we were very impressed with the way staff would generally have a conversation with you and crack a few jokes, which is always something that can make a meal more enjoyable. I found myself tipping most meals due to the attentive nature of the staff and I am English, so we rarely tip! In terms of cleanliness and the grounds, these could not be faulted. The reception area is beautiful and rooms are very clean. Your sheets can be changed daily if you so wish. Water pressure in the shower is adequate. Rooms are very large with two large beds. Overall, we did have a nice stay here, but if I was to give a recommendation, I would say to shop around a bit more first.

Great stay!

- Service was great, all Employees that we meet were very kind, attentive and always with a smile on their faces - Beautiful areas, the gardens are perfect - Very good food even when it is All Inclusive, flavors and quality at every outlet was great - Special mention to the Coffee Shop :D do not forget to visit it! - We loved the room, very comfortable and enough space for my Husband, Our Baby and I - The do the turndown service every night, thank you! We are used to this - The pool though was the only area that it might be a little bit more clean, it is so big and with all guests there, we think clean service should be deeper - Pool for children...super!!!! We loved it - We hire a Nanny for our Princess one night and she was so sweet! Do it :) so you can enjoy the PACIFIC EXPRESS Restaurant with your Hubby Thank you IBEROSTAR

Loved it!

First of all, I don't write many reviews, but I loved it so much at this resort, I decided to. I honestly don't know where to begin. I went on a 3 nights 4 day trip with my sisters, mom, and some other female family members. I've stayed at several all-inclusive resorts all around Mexico and the Dominican Republic (adults only and ones with kids), and have to say, this is my favorite, by far! The price was absolutely amazing (you can't get any better than that for the quality!), and the size was perfect. It is a medium-sized resort, but everything is within walking distance. We stayed on the first floor with a view of the pool & beach (didn't upgrade) but it didn't matter since we didn't spend much time on the balcony anyways. The rooms were great! AC was outstanding, we had plenty of water and drinks. They left us 6 bottles in the fridge (that's almost unheard of at a resort!) and 2 large liter bottles on the counter top. The beds were comfortable, and the the bathroom was very clean, with plenty of toiletries in the cutest and eco-friendly containers, and the water pressure and temperature was great! The food was okay. I've had better, but I've also had worse. There were plenty of options, and fresh fruit juices. I'm not complaining! Every meal I had was good. I loved that there was plenty of ceviches at the buffet near the pool, and the guacamole was awesome! Service at the buffets were good too- they were always there to refill drinks and even joked with us. We went to the Mexican Restaurant one night, and the Japanese hibachi the following night. The Mexican food was good- my steak was overcooked but the flavor was definitely there, and I loved the appetizers and desserts. The shrimp is super fresh as well. The Japanese restaurant was fun! I ordered the octopus and my sister ordered shrimp, but everyone else ordered beef. The octopus and shrimp were the best, the steak was not so good, but the flavor was still there. Fried rice was delicious, and the veggies had great flavor! Loved the dessert bar there as well. The chef was so cute, and fun! He even gave everyone extras to try on the hibachi grill. We sat at a really fun table! We celebrated someone's birthday and my bachelorette and they brought out desserts with candles and sang "happy birthday" and "For she's a jolly good fellow" and gave the birthday boy and I tequila shots straight from the bottle. It was a hoot and I loved it! What a special surprise for us. Now the drinks served at the beach were watered down and really sweet, but the lobby bar and steak restaurant/pool buffet bar had the best drinks! The margaritas on the rocks there were great! The entertainment staff was definitely the stand-out for this resort. The workers are so hardworking and you can tell that they love what they do. They memorized our names and were always very attentive. Isabel was our Bingo leader, and she also took us on our bike tour (which I loved) Alejandro was a great concierge the first day we arrived. Daniel was my archery instructor (I was solo) and he was great! I went with 4 older ladies (middle aged to senior) and they had so many activities for them to enjoy. They loved their instructor, Ruby, for meringue lessons. They also did morning yoga. Everyone at the resort, and even the local vendors on the beach were genuine and friendly. You get one free hour at the wet-spa a day. That was a great addition! it was very private and seclusive - they can only book 6 people at a time. The spa was nice with many different faucets to trigger different pressure points, the steam room was awesome, and the sauna was nice. There was also a hot tub. My sisters and I brought some glasses of wine in there to enjoy. Can't stop thinking about it. The shows were the best! I've never stayed at a resort with such entertaining and professional shows. We went to the Broadway one (loved all of the costume changes, song selections, singers, band, and dancers!!), Rock show (loved the songs and the band/singers were amazing!) and the Folklorico show (the resort hires professional dancers to come in and perform different traditional dances from the different regions in the area)! The bands there were also amazing. I know I keep saying that, but they seriously were very impressive. The older ladies in my group even stayed out later than the younger group and danced in the lobby with the entertainment staff and band. It was very fun to watch. It is definitely an atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all. There were younger kids and babies there, but they were all so cute and well-behaved. The beach isn't comparable to say, Cancun, but the water is definitely clean and warm. The water is a nice green color with glittery flecks from the sand (shimmery!) and the sand had nice beautiful glittery flecks - something I had never seen before (and I've been to about 15 beaches around the world) I never return to a resort since I like to try new ones and have different options, but I would definitely return to this one. Honestly, my 2 favorite resorts that I've ever visited are the ones in Puerto Vallarta. Looking at deals as we speak. It is a little further from the airport, but that's what made is so seclusive and special. I can't rave enough about the resort and how safe I felt and how friendly everyone was. I definitely will be back!
