    The place was large - I think there there 20 pools. According to my kids, they should add a lazy river. The resort was not too crowded. The food needed to have more variety. One person in our group did get sick and vomited several times. The person never left the resort, so we think it was the food. There was a doctor on site to assist. From a customer service perspective, it would have been nice if the hotel followed up with us. With the exception of that, the remaining staff was eager to please. The rooms were nice but dated. There was a stocked mini bar which was convenience. The air conditioning was inconsistent. We had to keep opening and closing the balcony doors as they had a sensor that triggered when the AC would turn on. The WiFi was slow. The beach had a lot of seaweed, but what can be done about that? Not sure if we will return to the resort.

    Not a five start hotel

    Rooms are very small and very dated. Not very clean. There were noises on the above floor, like doing construction. This is my second iberostart. The first one in Cuban. The Cuban's room are much bigger and the drinks are very similar. Not good at all. The food at the buffet is very repetitive. The theater is very small and there is only one big fan. If you seat outside the fan area you are going to sweat heavily because it is very hot. The GYM and the store are very small. There are not national beers like modelo and corona. The drinks are not very good. I can make better margaritas, There are only three elevators for over 400 rooms. When you come out of the pool (all wet) you have to go through the main lobby which is cold; this may get small children sick. Overall, I will not come back to this hotel.

    This hotel is not a five start. Rooms are small and very dated, not very clean. There is not national beers, margaritas are not that good. The food at the buffet is boring and limited selection. Only 4 restaurants and one of them does not accept children. There are 3 elevators for over 400 rooms. The store and the gym are very small. i will not come back to this hotel.

    Amazing holiday 🏝❤️

    Just returned from a fabulous holiday in cancun staying at the Iberostar in cancun. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The pool area and facilities were fantastic very beautiful pool area right onto the beach with infinity pool swim up bar just perfect. The buffet and food choice were fantastic which is where we used most having kids it made life easy pleasing everyone. There are other restaurants onsite which you can use as part of the all inclusive aswell but need to be booked in advance. Very pretty reception entrance area with coffee shop which was very handy and open 24 hours pastries sandwiches and teas coffee etc a great little addition if you didn’t fancy a full on breakfast everyday. Spa was lovely to I had a lovely manicure. The entertainment staff I have to say animation team were great putting on shows every night and entertaining everyone each day at the pool with games etc to fantastic bunch of people I have to say a special mention goes to Alex who made us feel very special and is just a lovely person who went that extra mile to be so friendly and look after us. Thank you Alex from Escocia. 😁 Loved it would recommend and would definitely return. Only thing to point out is a small issue we had with our room having paid for a superior room with balcony and sea view it didn’t quite meet my expectations room was side to back of hotel and not the wow factor view we hoped we paid for however I spoke to reception staff and was moved the next morning and was much happier with my room so despite this blip the issue was dealt with view amazing and we continued on to have a perfect holiday. Thank you 👍🏼🏝😁
