This resort had so much to offer. We were celebrating my siblings 30th birthday, so we had 6 adults. We did many of the activities, rifle shooting, archery, bingo, dance lessons, water aerobics, karaoke, musical shows, and a pool party. They were also celebrating Mexican Independce and had a big festival with special food, games, and a mariachi band. The entertainment staff was so fun. Special shoutout to Johnathan, Marcos, Fernando, Fabian, Paloma, and Rocio. They made each day so fun and made us all feel special. The pool bar was fantastic, especially Jose. He learned our order the first day and was so friendly. The buffet had different food each night, though I'm sure it does repeat. But there were options for even the pickiest eater. And when in doubt, the ladies at breakfast made the best cheese quesadillas. The Japanese restaurant menu was what you got without any substitutions, so out picky party members had to hit up the buffet after. The taco bar was so good, though we mostly stuck to the chicken tacos. I only wish it was open longer. There was a circus night with acrobats and fire dancers one night on the sunset bar. My only complaint was that the pool wasn't really open past sunset and with the heat, it would have been nice to hit the pool in the evening and not worry about sunscreen. The concierge helped set up our excursion for ziplining and even got us a deal. The bellman set up all of our taxis to Sayulita and the airport. Everyone was so friendly and kind, especially with our limited Spanish. We all had such a great time. We didn't spend much time at the beach, but did some swimming. We walked the beach each morning and the staff was up bright and early cleaning up sticks and other debris to keep the beach looking nice.
Excellent location, marvelous beach view, with a few negatives.

About 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, excellent if you want to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach view. Pro's location next to beach and mountains, views, staff......Con's the shows, come on someone at Iberostar please do something about the shows, I've been to three Iberostars and the shows are pretty much the same, please be creative, have you thought that maybe we want to see a traditional Mexican show or traditional mexican music or latin themed music? Thankfully there was a live JD with latin music at the club. Most of the people come from US, do we want to see an American show? No, no, no.
About the food, catch of the day I would expect a fresh fish but instead the same piece of fish I ate at the French restaurant the day before just cooked differently, no, no, no... please don't do that.
And finally..only Dos X beer? really? What about Corona, Bohemia, Pacifico? Come on, don't be cheap!!!
