Love travelling to the Riviera Maya. Love all inclusives. Love Mexico.
We've always stayed at the El Dorado's before because we like good food.
The Iberostar was ok. Not bad. Not amazing.
We have a beautiful room at the front on the beach. Comfortable. Clean. But right on the end beside where the other hotel held their weddings/parties. Sitting out in the hot tub was never really an option to relax because there were always people right there. Typical Mexican style room.
Beach is beautiful. You can walk forever and walk down to Maroma beach which is amazing. The staff on the beach are "ok"...they're just putting in their time. Not really working too hard.
Food is ok. That's it. Nothing spectacular. Restaurants were difficult to get into unless you wanted to eat later nd that was frustrating.
Service: Ok. Nothing outstanding. Noone stood out. Noone seemed to care to go that "extra"mile. They all looked like they were just putting in their time.
I've stayed at other Iberostars and have to admit, was taken aback by how unimpressed I was with this. Outside our excellent room location, nothing else was exceptional. It was just "meh".
I would stay at the El Dorado if you are a foodie. If you are all about the beach - stay on Maroma. If you spend all your time in the pool drinking, stay here.
Whereever you choose. have fun!
