“Excellent.”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel before that I have actually felt sad about leaving. Everything about this hotel was brilliant, the staff in particular were amazing and the level of service was something to be commended. You were never left wanting and I got the feeling that every member of staff was more than happy to give you 110% every time.

The facilities were great, there was a wide range of food available throughout the day and several great little bars to choose from. If you like to relax by the pool, on the beach or even in a hammock among coconut trees, then the surroundings were beautiful. And for the more active there were lots of activities provided every day by the very friendly and outgoing STAR FRIENDS staff.

I can't wait to go back to this hotel.

We are a couple - 23 and 24 years old from the UK, we stayed at the Iberostar Cancun in September.

As soon as you walk into the hotel you're greeted with an impressive lobby / reception area where you're given a nice cold drink, everything is taken care of, bags are taken to your room. Check in was fast.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, any request we made (albeit nothing too demanding!) was met with no issues at all. People mention tipping in Mexico but we never felt pressured or uncomfortable with the waiters or bar staff. We still tipped as they were all great! Our room was always clean, bedding made, towels collected, we also had towel animals made which my girlfriend loved. It was also her birthday during the stay, they made a towel birthday cake and put some balloons up which was brilliant. One small thing, the bath robes were taken and not replaced, but not a big thing.

The food at the iberostar cancun was absolutely fantastic. I could not get over the variety, quality, and quantity of the food on offer for all meals. Even the fussiest of eaters would struggle to not find something they like. We loved the food and always left feeling very full! Drinks are also all inclusive, wine, beer, champagne and cocktails during all meals too!

One thing that really stood out about the holiday was the conservation project run with the hotel where baby sea turtles are hatched off site from eggs collected from the beach, and brought to the hotel to be released at night. You got to hold a tiny turtle and release it into the sea!

The beach was always pristine in the morning and swept before you got down there, sun loungers, beds and palm umbrellas are all there to make use of. You could have any drink made at one of the poolside bars and take it to the beach. Or stay by the pool, or in the pool at the pool bar. Didn't spend much time in the pools but they were always very clean and with ample space for all the the hotel. never did it feel overcrowded.

Cancun in general is great and i would definitely recommend it to anyone. If you want nightlife you can take a bus for a couple of pesos (50p!) down the strip to the many bars and clubs or restaurants. There's also tonnes to do in cancun, we drove a speedboat and went snorkelling, I went on a deep sea fishing trip and we also went to Chichen Itzsa.

Overall, the Iberostar Cancun was the best hotel I have ever stayed at, and the best holiday I've ever been on. I would definitely recommend. Reading any of the slightly negative reviews are people who are being hypercritical. Many thanks to the staff for a fantastic holiday.

I would not recommend staying at this property - rooms are run down, food quality is sketchy and the front desk staff is rude. They made the mistake of assuming because I have blonde hair that I don't speak Spanish.

Previously stayed at this property when it was a Hilton. Was much better run then with Iberostar. Stuck here for a conference with wifi that isn't just sporadic but horrendous. Only 1 ATM machine in hotel that dispenses only USD and charges up to almost $8+ in fees. Then to convert to pesos hotel gives you a low exchange rate - no surprise. Ordered room service - tacos ok but Margherita pizza was a thick piece of bread with cheese that was maybe grilled for 30 seconds. Rather disgusting. Only one type of red wine- I would pay for something more drinkable but there is no selection or choice. I have been visiting Cancun for the last 30 years both for business and pleasure. I would never return to the Iberostar if I had a choice.

Great facilities and staff. Clean and well maintained. Right on the beach, which is key. Pool was great and Javier, food service capitan, was great. Introduce yourself to him and you will have a new friend for the duration of your stay. The star friends were great as well and my son enjoyed the (free) kids club (special thx to Rebecca and Paola). Hot tubs were never quite hot, but otherwise no complaints.
