A Nice Family Resort

We booked this resort as a last minute get-a-way during an advertised sale. We have always stayed at adult-only all-inclusives, but wanted to try a family resort to experience the difference.There is a marked difference in quality between this and what we are used to at more exclusive adult-only resorts, but, then again, this was about one-third the cost. All in all, for what we paid, this was a really nice value. While researching this resort we read a lot about security concerns and the quality of the food. We felt very secure during the entire trip and stay. In fact, we were there one day when a family lost sight of their very young child. They were in panic mode, of course, but it was reassuring to see how many uniformed security guards instantly appeared, and the child was quickly found.As far as the food in concerned: You don't go to a fast food or family restaurant expecting the gourmet dining experience. Why would you expect it at a family resort? The food overall was very good for this environment. You had a wide variety of choices at the buffet restaurants (which always included pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs and ice cream). And even the ala carte restaurants had kid friendly buffet style appetizers and desserts along with their specialty entrees. Again, great selection, family friendly, good quality, but not necessarily fine dining. Disappointments were minor: Every umbrella in the resort has a sign saying that reserving sunbeds is strickly forbidden and that unattended items will be removed. You are even given a notice to that effect at registration. But it was not enforced at all, at least during the week we were there. Building 50, closest to the beach, which we thought would be great, was a disappointment. The concierge desk in that building was vacant the whole week we were there. We had to use one at another building (among other things, you have to use a concierge to get dinner reservations at the ala cartes). Our room faced the beach but couldn't see it because of foliage and drainage pipes (not a pleasant view at all). Other buildings appeared much better situated. The beach was was terrific. Clean, ample sunbeds and thatched umbrellas, on-site bar, hamburgers-hot-dogs-fries served daily at lunch, organized activities, etc. The pools were very nice and kid friendly. Lots of activities and a really nice ice cream station.Lot's of good things can be found here for kids and families. This would be a great destination for us if we still had kids at home. But, being older, retired adults we probably won't be back - in favor of the adult only atmosphere. One last thought that may be of value to older adults considering a family resort. The noise level, as you would expect with the number of kids here, is much higher than at an adult only, irritating at times. And we found the guests, overall, to be less friendly, polite, and considerate. Probably because, on average, you have a younger group of adults here than you find at the more exclusive adult only resorts.Overall, a really good experience though and we would recommend this resort for young families.

Fun family and friend vacation!

Our group of 25 was there from November 9-16. Firstly, we wanted to send out a very big thank you to Kristabell from the Lindo evening buffet, she helped navigate our boys to the foods they could eat safely, seeing as though they both have peanut allergies. Her bright smile and warm personality greeted us daily!! Thank you Kristabell!! You gave the boys peace of mind. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, housekeeping was very sweet and kind. The beach was fabulous. Beautiful sand, fun waves! No seaweed at all. Only downfall and hence the one less star, was for our kids being kicked off the beach volleyball court by Moses Garcia from entertainment. We were there with 12 kids that day on the Lindo beach and they were told to leave, but adults could stay.... The Japanese a la carte was so much fun! Thanks for surprising my mom and dad with a 50th anniversary presentation there too! Tequila boom boom and all! Lots of laughs and memories were made. An awesome trip overall. Ps birds and coatis are very aggressive and will come after your food when on the beach, just a friendly heads up.

Slippery floors

The resort is gorgeous and very well maintained. The staff is outstanding at every level. The downside is the dangerously slippery floor surfaces in every area. From your room following daily housekeeping wet mopping, to the beautiful lobby and the massive surrounding area, the buffets, and yes even poolside BEWARE! I saw 3 women take bad falls and did a lot of sliding myself. There are yellow cone warning signs everywhere, but come on Iberostar.....roughen up those floors. After 5 days I was ready to be off the ice rink. Shocked that reviews I had read revisit never mentioned this hazard.

Great family trip

We stayed the first week of November with our 10y/o son. Check in was very friendly and accommodating letting us switch rooms. The resort was beautiful, lots of wildlife, pools and a great beach. Never saw seaweed. We were always able to find chairs poolside or at beach. Buffets were ok, nothing great. The a la carte restaurants were very good. There has been a lot of talk and reports of the alcohol at the resort. I drank like a fish, and couldn't really even catch a buzz. At home that many drinks would have knocked me out. But that's like any all inclusive we have been too. Maybe just luck, we never got sick? Who knows! The best part for us was the kids club, that our son really liked being a part of every day. Stephanie and Alberto were awesome with the kids. The best beer was found at the taco stand at the shopping complex, well worth the short walk for the food, service and beer found there. Over all we would return.
