Overall I was very impressed with the resort I was a little nervous about its size, but it isn't that bad. Don't get me wrong It's HUGE, but you get used to it.
We chose Iberostar for its family friendliness. We have a nine year old that was part of our wedding. They really go out of their way to keep the kids entertained. Our son said it was the best vacation he has ever been on.
10/10 I could not have asked for better. It was perfect. if you are staying at the beach or the delmar the wedding location is the same, in front of the del mar. I was surprised how little we had to meet with the wedding coordinator (only about 1 hour) to get everything worked out as far a planning. We used one of the pool bars for our reception and hired the DJ. I have heard many mixed reviews of the DJ but let me just say he was AWESOME! anything I requested he had and played. everything from journey to back that [--] up. one hint guys bring a hankerchef with you it gets real hot standing in the sun for 30 minutes waiting for your bride to walk down. especially in july. after the reception we went to the Galaxy club, kinda corny, but fun is what you make it and who you are there with. again we had a blast, and the DJ there is the same one that they use for the weddings.
9/10 not many complaints on the room they were very clean the A/C was hit or miss. there were 21 of us there about half of us had A/C that kept the room cold the other half it just cooled it off a bit. Not only that everytime housekeeping cleans the room and props the door open for more than a minute or two the A/C shuts off so you come back to a sweat box. I understand why they have it set up that way to save money, but it sucks in july. we were upgraded to building 31 because we were getting married. they also upgraded her sister, the maid of honor. make sure any family members mention that they are family when checking in.
10/10 Everyone is so friendly. you can not walk by anyone that works there with out a smile and an Hola. the pool bar gets a little busy, I would like to see them hire another bartender, I can't imagine what it is like when it is at full occupency. I would say the resort was about 50% full. othere than that I have no compaints. the drinks were a little watered down, but that is a good thing when it is 95 degrees
I will not rate the food because everyone has different tastes and benchmarks for what they like. I will tell you it was clean and I really enjoyed the Japanease and the brazilian resturants. If you like meat you will love the brazillian. Go hungry.
7/10 I was not impressed with entertainment at all, however If you asked my son he would probably give it a 10/10 so if you have kids I guess it was good, if not don't waste your time. especially if it is hot that night. there is no air movement in the outdoor theater. it was real muggy. you will hate that song the star friends sing by the time you leave. "hey hey baby. I gotta know if you'll be my girl."
9/10 the waves were nice, there are a few rocky spots in front of the lindo and the maya be careful. If you really want a nice beach go south past the grand there is a little outcropping of rock, about 75 meters past that there is the best beach in the world, crystal clear water and no one there. Iberostar doesn't own it but there is currently nothing there.
9/10 Great place to get married especially if you have a large group going. the resort is huge, we are both runners and our feet hurt after a week there, you do a ton of walking. there is a shuttle that comes every 15 minutes (or whenever it wants to)
we also did the Tulum Extreme tour I highly reccomend it
