    Iberostar Playa Mita - Very poor customer service - Staff is very rude.

    This hotel is not client-oriented at all. Very poor/rude customer service. I went there with my family, including a baby and a toddler. When we checked-in they informed us that our room was not ready and they did not know when will it be ready for us to get in. When I went to the front desk to ask, they had a very "this is all you'll got" attitude and the lady was very rude to us. It was until 3:30 (30 mins after the check in time) when they kind of confirmed the room was "almost ready". As a mom of 2 little kids that were traveling all day, to have a clean room available for rest and relax is a must. The hostess at the restaurant by the pool were also very rude to us, they treat you like if they were doing you a favor giving you a table, rolling they eyes at you if you ask them to wait for your whole family to arrive. The rooms are starting to look old. Our shower flooded every time we used it and the water from the shower was terrible, way too close to the wall. The food is OK. The beach is nice. Overall, I think there are better and more customer-oriented hotels in the area. If you are considering going to Iberostar Playa Mita, keep in mind that the staff will be rude to you and your family.

    Good hotel, bad at problem solving

    Great hotel, it is one of my favorites to rest and have a good time , however, the last time I went there, there were some people by the pool with a very loud speaker; I asked them to please lower the volume and they said no, I asked for help and the staff said they had paid for their stay and that they couldn’t do anything, I also paid for my stay and I felt it was very rude to ignore me, I wanted to rest and the noice was terrible.

    Not sure why this hotel has good reviews. Like my husband said, probably from all the employees. This place is bad. Outdated rooms. AC barely working. Humidifier in the room needs maintenance ever6 few hours. Lines that last hours to thw buffet. Worker do not speak English and even when they do, and you ask for instructions in English they refuse. Insist on addressing you in Spanish when you clearly do not understand. Half the time you're just ignored. Buffet has no options. Same food daily and it's mediocre at best. No taste, no substance. Other "specialized" restaurants have nasty food worse than buffet. Please stay away if you want to have a pleasant stay. I'm definitely never coming back! Oh also, no entertainment at all!! After 6pm the place is dead. No activities or music! They run out of food and ice cream at the pool early in the day and that's it. No bathrooms at the pool it beach area do ppl probably pee in the water. Do yourself a solid and go somewhere else.

    An amazing place with even more amazing staff!

    My husband and I stayed at this resort from 5/4 - 5/11 for our 8th wedding anniversary. The pics of the resort and the beach don't do them justice! The place is stunning!! The food was delicious and we only had 1 meal that my husband didn't love but its a foreign county and an AI so he just ordered something else, problem solved. The staff here is by far the best staff we have ever encountered anywhere...HANDS DOWN. The roof top bar and staff up there hit it out of the park...Jesus, Isabel, Pedro, Carmelo and our absolute favorite, Mayra. Mayra even gave me a small Mothers Day gift before we left. She is an exceptional human being. If I am forgetting anyone from the roof I am sorry, we loved you all so so much! The guys at the pool bar were amazing all day as well. Everyone everywhere was always smiling and happy and willing to help you with anything you needed. It was so lovely. My hubs and I had a freak medical emergency occur that landed us in the ER during our stay. From the medical staff on site to the concierge who arranged a taxi...thank you all so much!! They were so helpful and gracious and they checked up on my husband after the fact, even the doctor on site was asking about his wellbeing after the fact! Our trip went a bit sideways (ER trip that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the resort at all) but the staff was amazing at helping us make the best of it after the fact. Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart! We will definitely be back.
