My husband and I just returned from the Iberostar Quetal. We went for our 10 year anniversary from 1/17 to 1/24/04. We really enjoyed the resort. the service was fantastic! Our room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. We tipped our maid $2 per day and enjoyed a stocked mini-bar daily in stead of 3 times per week as it states they do. The food was good. Breakfast and lunch buffets had a very good selection. They have 4 specialty restaurants. We ate in all four and enjoyed them all. One trick to know is that they only allow you to make 2 reservations per week. However, if you check with the reservation desk late in the afternoon, there will be cancellations and you can take these. The beach and the pool were nice, however the hot tub was never hot. A real jacuzzi would have been nice. Also, if you walk a little way down the beach to the undeveloped area, it is very trashy. Would recommed the hotels all pitch in and clean this up!! Drinks are plentiful with great service. If you're a wine enthusiast, take a few bottles along. Poor quality of wine here. Also when ordering "fruity coctails" like daiquairies, be sure to ask for extra alcohol. The staff doesn't mind if you ask. The drinks are pretty weak otherwise. The nightly entertainment was pretty amateur. We called it the "summer camp" show. A dance night or movie night would be a good addition. All in all these complaints would not stop me from returning to the resort . ITS A BEUTIFUL AND RELAXING PLACE!
