    Amazing staff

    Raquel at star campus incredible. She has gone above and beyond for my daughter and myself and my daughter wasn't even in the camp! She made my stay with an almost 3 year old alot easier.. Raquel is genuinely caring and comes up with such fun activities. She stuck out to me because of her incredible energy,(kids are drawn to her) not sure if our stay would have been as fun or easy without her!

    I love their pool

    Booked for myself and my sister. I knew it was a family friendly resort when I booked but was surprised the massive number of children running around even though it was the off season and kids should be back in school for the majority of places. Luckily it was only for the weekend, turned out to be a 3 day dance or something competition in their convention area. By the end of Monday there were not a lot of kids left. The room was nice, clean, and well maintained. Beds were comfortable. The two feather pillows however, were absolutely horrible. They were just flat, nothing could be done to make them better except stuff the pillowcases with towels or extra clothing to give them some sort of firmness. Bring your own pillow if you don't like flat pillows. The pool was the best pool I've been to so far, I love the infinity edge looking over the ocean. And it was refreshing and cool. The last two resorts I've been to heated their pools and it was not enjoyable. The swim up bar was very clean and well laid out. The bartender was always very friendly and made drinks quickly. The only downside about the pool area for me was they would play very loud music in the afternoon, we learned we needed to find chairs as far from the speaker as we could to not be disturbed. The food was as expected for a resort, and we only got to try 3 of the restaurants. The Japanese hibachi was delicious the first time we went so we decided to go a second night and were disappointed, the second night chef didn't seem to really have it down. The steakhouse was very good, my steak was cooked exactly to order and was very tasty. I was a little disappointed in the lack of typical steakhouse sides, was looking forward to a baked potato or grilled veggies or something along those lines but nothing like that was offered (or I just didn't see it on the menu?). Instead it was an odd assortment of items on a buffet that had nothing to do with a steakhouse. The American Bistro was, we both agreed, the worst meal of the entire trip. I had their potato pizza as an app, it turned out to be fries with cheese sauce with a little mozzarella and a few pepperoni. My sister had their goat cheese puff pastry that was basically deep fried and when you bit into it a stream of oil poured out onto your plate, or lap if you weren't lucky. I had their trio of sliders as my main, I took maybe a bit of each, and couldn't finish. There was just no flavor. My sister ordered their coconut shrimp as her main, even though they were deep fried the shrimp were raw. We left and went to the main buffet to find something better to each. Nightlife is non-existent. Anything that was going on seemed to be geared toward kids. There was a nightly stage show but that was about it. We met some people who were staying on the adult-only side and they said there wasn't really anything going on over there either. Really the only option was to sit in one of the bars and drink or leave the resort. So if you like nightlife, this is not the place for you. Overall, the resort had the important basics, clean, food, beach, pool. If I was planning a family with kids trip, would consider this place. But on an adult-only trip, definitely not.

    Great family hotel clean

    (Late review sept 2017) This hotel was the second all inclusive hotel in cancun we have stayed at. Pool bar is awesome, food is good, and rooms are clean. My children loved the water park. All rooms are ocean views which is a plus.

    Second visit to Iberostar amazing as the first!

    My husband and I travelled to Cancun in Sept ‘19 and chose to stay at the same resort we visited two years prior because we loved it so much; Iberostar Selection Cancun. My standards were set so high from our previous visit I was a little nervous my expectations wouldn’t be met this second time around. But happily I was wrong! It was as magnificent and splendid a trip as the one we took two years ago. The staff is ready to greet and relieve you of your bags as soon as you step into the resort. Xavier was the best! He helped us set up all our dinner reservations, golfing, and was there to answer any questions and make our stay as perfect as possible. He invited us to breakfast so he could share the many perks and reward options for being a returning guest. And just for taking the time to do that we were given a free round of golf and complimentary 50 min massage. So amazing!! The views and ocean are the best I’ve ever seen. The water is vivid shades of turquoise and blue, it doesn’t even look real. We spent our week relaxing on the beach, shopping at La Plaza Isla, golfing and enjoying a wonderful dining experience every night. Out of all the restaurants the Steakhouse was our favorite but all of them are so good. Our week stay was again one of the best vacations I’ve ever had and we can’t wait to come back as soon as possible!! They have an incredible new Star Prestige building and maybe we can stay there next time! I would 100% recommended the Iberostar Selection Cancun and you will love your time there because it’s so beautiful and amazing!!
