This was our second stay at an Iberostar property (Iberostar Jamaica Beach Resort was first). The quality this hotel chain offers is excellent. Location - long sandy beach, lots of space for walks, excellent snorkeling right off the beach, lots of sun beds and shade for those who need it. Excellent food, buffets large and varied, quality, seafood - lobster, shrimp, scallops, muscles, calamari...the list goes on. Great drinks. Great entertainment staff, motivating but not pushy. 20 years olds in our group loved the disco and night time entertainment - they were not bored despite not having all their constant connections to electrical gadgets - internet was available and good speed for $. The kids actually enjoyed having down time, thought they might get bored, but they didn't want to come home - enjoyed the relaxing pace, sleep, food, fun and more fun... Hotel decorated nicely for the holidays. We were able to get adjoining rooms, one with 2 double beds and one with a king, in 8000 block of rooms, overlooking pool - very nice and centrally located. Maid was amazing, we no sooner put the "make up the room sign" on the door and she was in cleaning up - every day we got a new "towel animal" and room was spotless. We booked our flights/transfers/hotel separately this trip and all went according to plan - excellent service all the way.
Be prepared to enjoy a wonderful vacation. **we also lucked out with 7 days of pure sunshine - a little rain at night, but we were sleeping, so who cares!
