Just got back from my 6th stay at the Iberostar..we go primarily for the diving
This IS NOT the Rizt..
It is located about 25 minutes from town
rooms... are SMALL and the water pressure is dismal and the hot water is hit and miss (taking a shower is an event) the maid service is efficient and the rooms are clean...great hammocks at all rooms...the lower number buildings are closer to the beach and dive shop, ..small safes in rooms
food...the food is average but about what i would expect..the specialty restaurants are ok but not the reason you visit the resort..dont forget the specialty restaurants require men to wear long pants and shoes...the steak house didnt require this
beach...the beach is nice with plenty of shade and chairs...there is a beach bar and service there as well..the entrance to the ocean is rocky..sometimes bugs are an issue so take spray,... great sunsets
pool...cold this time of year...bar there with plenty of chairs..lots of games and activities
service...generally very good..the people there are friendly and helpful imo...TIP THEM !
shows... nightly but unimportant to me
dive operation...on site, Dressel Divers operates the operation there and they are excellent , prepared and SAFE imo..very imformed and professional dive masters...big boats so be prepared for lots of divers sometimes..the resort is the southern most on the island so closest to the best reefs
wildlife...lots of fun animals cruising around the property, peacocks, flamingos, iguanas
overall I love this resort because it meets my expectations and purpose...
If you are looking for fantastic food and ultra luxury, this is not the place to go...if you are a diver this is the perfect resort ! if i would rate the Iberostar it would be maybe 3 stars
I will be back next year
