Nice stay at Iberostar hotel

Gregg M on Feb 23, 2024

Getting out of the airport terminal in Cozumel is always a fiasco. It's a racket that taxis cannot pick up at the airport. You must take either a shuttle bus, or a private car. You run a gauntlet of vendors selling everything from time shares, to snorkel trips. Once we made our way outside, we had trouble finding our vendor, Taxi Cozumel. Asking around, we eventually found the right taxi. My advice, if your hotel does not offer transportation, arrange for it in advance. The trip to the hotel was uneventful. I wanted to confirm our return trip taxi, but found no convenient way to do so. I tried messaging the taxi operator, but got no response. Finally, I checked with the hotel concierge, and they confirmed our return taxi was scheduled. Not very reassuring, but we did get our scheduled ride. Helpful staff on check in. Kind of s bare room, but that's because of the beach and the sand that gets tracked in. No luggage racks, extremely noisy dehumidifier. Slept well, and late. Mattress soft, bit then hard base underneath. If you need total darkness, out of luck. No blackout curtains and light leaks in all around the windows and doors. Along with the usual buffet, there are three specialty restaurants, barbecue, Mexican, and oriental. Our first night dinner was in the Smokehouse barbecue. Food served Brazilian style, where meats and sides delivered family style. Sausage: B-, decent not spicy no snap on bite. Chicken: A+. Moist and tasty. Pulled pork: B+. Tasty but fatty. Brisket: A. Moist and tasty with a good bark. Sides: Coleslaw ok, beans spicy but good, creamed corn cheese wasn't fully melted. Las 2 Marias Mexican: 3 course menu. Appetizer, main, dessert. Ceviche tasty. Pork wonderful, dessert blah. All the food comes from the same kitchen, the only difference, is presentation and delivery. The breakfast buffet offered a wide variety of options. Two omelet stations. I had frittata, bland, bit a visit to the salsa bar fixed that. Food generally good, although bland probably to accommodate guests needing it. Had to ask for salt and pepper. Lots of lounge chairs around the single pool, and on the beach. Not enough shade for those of us trying not to get burned. We spent our days on beach. Why do Mexican resorts insist on playing loud music around the pool? At 11am, a loud game took place, but they finished by noon, then quiet the rest of the day. It was quite pleasant. Oops. At 5:15 pm, no hot water. Fixed later. Being on Cozumel, the hotel caters to divers. A dive shop is on property. Snorkeling options limited, as water's edge is rocky and obscured by black silt. A pier next to dive shop has steps into snorkel area. Snorkel gear free to guests, but no fins. After snorkeling, my advice is not to here. The current is strong. Very shallow, which is nice, but nothing to see. Sea bottom is covered in silt. Take a boat to a good spot.

Bring your own sunscreen!

FayeJ42 (Houston, Texas) on Feb 22, 2024

My only significant complaint is that the cost of sunscreen in the gift shop was $50 (I asked for the smallest, reef-friendly bottle). Then I asked for the cheapest sunscreen - about 8 ounces for $30. Although I expect a mark up at a resort, a 300 to 500% increase was the steepest I have encountered. I only pack a carry on when I travel so limited liquids allowed and I needed to buy a few items. I ended up mooching off friends. I'll give my $50 to charity. I wish the gym had opened about 30 minutes earlier than it did. Otherwise, the resort was lovely. Decent food and drinks. Nice setting. Friendly staff.
