Directly on the beach, in a rocky, coral–filled cove with unspoilt waters. A paradise for diving and snorkelling. Sub-tropical mangrove forest. Bungalows in typical local style. Second-largest reef in the World.

Great dive crew and boats. Nice, comfortable rooms with fantastic hammocks on the balcony. Very good buffets available for all 3 meals. Save your money and skip the ala carte restaurants. Waited 1.5 hours to get food at steak house and it wasn't crowded. I had ordered a vegetable skewer. Other people in the party received either very rare steaks or steaks so tough they could barely cut through them. We had a party of 17, but that was ridiculous.

Hotel's Favourite
This was our 3rd trip to the Cozumel Iberostar. It is our favorite place in Mexico. The location is perfect. Having the dive shop on site is so convenient for booking snorkeling, scuba and fishing trips that pick you up right on the pier. It was great to be able to use the catamarans and other watersports equipment. Some of our favorite employees made the trip even more enjoyable: Geovani (sp?) at the pool bar, Pamela at Dessel Divers, Angelo and Harlet on the entertainment team, Ana Lopez at the pool, Ismael at the towel station are just a few. I would love to be able to name them all. We did not have a bad experience. Harlet is probably the best dancer I have ever seen. I know he will go far. We are already looking forward to our next trip.

Information about events and dining at the property is hard to come by. There doesn't seem to be anything posted or in writing. It doesn't seem to be advertised on the website well. The bed was hard, spooned, and low. I found it very hard to get out of. Food was serviceable and decent with a wide array of choices. Maria, at the front desk, was a stand out star. She was very cheerful and very helpful every time we saw her. Top marks, Maria! You were a real standout. All in all, we'd go again, but we have learned a few things. Take a clothes line and clothes pins. The floors are polished stone. Ask for extra towels for the bed side. A coffee pot in the room would be wonderful, as would a few snacks to go with the well stocked mini-fridge. A few more directional signs would be helpful; everyone in our group got lost at least once.

The service level has dropped in the past 6 months. We were there two times earlier this year and the services were much better. While the food has improved, the attitude and attentiveness of the staff has fallen off.

This was a hard rating to assign because there were a few things that were excellent about this resort but ultimately, the downsides prevented me from giving this a four or five star rating. I’ll start with the bad so I can end on the good…. Downsides: - The first two rooms we were assigned were dirty and dysfunctional: the sheets were stained, there were many caterpillars in the room, the electricity went out spontaneously, furniture was very worn and dated, and water was dripping from the ceiling. - I got food poisoning on the first night after eating at the cafeteria. - The restaurants were very disappointing: the food was not very good and there was no ambience. There was also no room service. - The check-in process was a nightmare. People were waiting up to an hour or more to check in because it was so disorganized. - We received mixed instructions about restaurant reservations, checking out, etc. Upsides: - The staff was extremely accommodating. Specifically, Reyes (Bell Boy), Aramanta and Alejandra (Entertainment), Roberto (Management), and the ladies at the front desk were exceptional. They moved us to a new, clean room and made sure that we had an enjoyable stay. They are each a huge asset to this resort. - The grounds were absolutely beautiful. They were superbly maintained, and the plants, flowers, and trees were just spectacular. - Having animals on site was a special touch that I really enjoyed. There are flamingos, all types of tropical birds (including a sweet parrot named Pepe who likes to hang out in the lobby and be pet), peacocks, etc. - The water served from the restaurants and from the fountains was filtered and safe to drink. Glass bottles were provided in each room to cut down on the use of plastic water bottles (which is a huge waste in most resorts). - Access to scuba diving was very convenient. There are several different types of diving excursions that are available right on-site (through Dressel Divers). Ultimately, this resort needs some significant facility upgrades and operational improvements. Without these improvements, I would not stay here again. However, if these improvements are made, I would consider returning because of the staff, the grounds / animals, and the access to scuba diving.

Dear guest, Thank you for choosing our Resort on your recent vacation. We are pleased to share with you that our hotels in Mexico are free of single-use plastic in line with our Wave of Change movement. This is just part of our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment through different strategies such as improving water quality and better managing waste that allow us to protect the local ecosystems while providing excellent service for our guests. On the other hand, we would like to explain, that it has always been of great importance for us to guarantee that our guests’ first minutes in reception on arrival are part of an enjoyable process. As we are aware that it contributes a great deal towards the reputation of our hotel. We will certainly relay the comments you have provided directly to the head of the aforementioned department. We thank you for your constructive criticism and regret that it made your holiday seem less than perfect. It is important to mention that Iberostar Hotels & Resorts takes seriously the safety and well-being of our guests and our Executive Chef daily supervises the food is prepared with the highest levels of hygiene and quality, from the moment every dish is prepared until the moment we deliver it to our guests. In addition to this, we have daily inspections made by our Quality & Hygiene department as well as by a third party company, in order to ensure compliance with our quality standards. Every aspect is inspected such as the correct handling of the food, temperatures, conservation, and preparation. However, we do not take your comments lightly and we will forward them to our Food and Beverage department for their review. We hope that you had a safe trip back home.
