    While staying at the Iberostar Lindo The evening bartender at the main bar made our stay five-star with his attention to our needs. He truly made the stay over the top for us.My favorite part of the day it was ending up at the fish tank bar with Rudolfo

    Great Family Trip

    We visited this resort for 5 nights, joining our son & his wife, along with their 2 sons 6 & 8. We found the restaurants to be good, and the buffet restaurant had so many choices, more so than a lot of other resorts we have visited. We enjoyed the Japanese tapanyaki with good food a fun show by the chef. We were not rushed as we have been in other resorts. My wife really liked the Mexican restaurant. The coffee shop was great with lots of choices, both liquid and food. The property is quite long, front to back but there are shuttle trams if needed. The grounds are nice. The main pool is quite large, but was a little cool as was the wave pool. Personally I found the ocean warmer, and the waves were fun to play in. There were some isolated rocks / stones in some places. We enjoyed the lobby bar with it's AC for for pre & post dinner drinks. Several nights we visited the market square where there is a small merry go round, coffee shop, ice cream store and a candy store which the kids and adults enjoyed. Scoop your own ice cream with lots of toppings were in a lot of restaurants. Our room was looked after nicely, the AC was great and always lots of hot water. We will return.

    The check in was the only thing that went totally wrong. When I got to the desk the person asked me to step aside and she called on the next couple to come to the desk. I was confused and asked why I needed to step aside. She said that she needed to do the check in with both couples together. WHAT?? I came here with my husband and no one else yet I had to step aside while she attended to the couple behind me. I asked again why I wasn't being checked in and she said "if you listen you will understand". WHAT??? I'm guessing she was not confident of her English speaking skills so she wanted to check in as many people as possible at the same time so that she did not need to repeat herself?? In any case I left the counter and sat quietly while I waited for my keys. I was livid. Thankfully the concierge, Ximena Chavez, noticed my red face and asked if she could help. Ximena was excellent during our entire stay and saved us from nixing the Iberostar in future. Management: If the person at the desk is incompetent to the point that they must check people in en masse, you have a real problem. I was checked in on Wednesday, January 8 at around 2:30pm. There were only two couples checking at that time so maybe this is why she thought it a great idea to check us all in at the same time? The other couple completely usurped the check in process (as they should) so it left us in the lurch. Please fix this ASAP. We travel twice a year and it was our first time at an Iberostar and it left us less than impressed. I would like to thank the following bartenders: Rodolfo, Cristobel and Juan. They were excellent at their jobs and made us feel welcomed. And again, a sincere thank you to Ximena Chavez who went above and beyond to make the trip awesome for us!! The beds are super comfy and the rooms, grounds, pools and beach are impeccably cleaned. The food was okay. Steakhouse is the best à la carte. Went to Gourmet for my birthday it was painfully awful. Ate at the Sport's Bar and I was immediately sick to my stomach (ate a quesadilla). It took almost 24 hrs to get back to life. Just be careful and mindful of what you put in your mouth as I don't think refrigeration is a thing there. With all the great reviews about the entertainment I was expecting some excitement but to no avail. Nothing going on at the beach EVER. Some pool entertainment but if you are not a pool lizard, you will probably miss it. The night shows were average but colorful. All in all, the beach, sun and waves are always amazing no matter where you go! I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation despite it all but I'm not sure I will visit an Iberostar again however.

    Great resort. Wonderful vacation. The staff here work so hard to make it enjoyable for the guests in every way possible. Special thanks to Armando at the breakfast and lunch buffet. He is so thoughtful and accommodating. Rodrigez at the dinner buffet is funny and professional in the same time. He makes sure we are well taken care of. Rudy is a great bartender at the lobby bar with lots of neat creations. Loved when there was a small live band outside of the lobby bar some evenings. It adds such a nice touch to the night wjen you sit around with couple of drinks. Food is great, services are super. The rooms are very clean and the fridge always have the drinks or juices we need. Lots of extras with ice cream stand, lunches cooked by the pool, self serve snacks at the beach, staff bringing pizza and drinks to your seats poolside. Good music, and fun staff always offering something to do. We enjoy everything. Very relaxing vacation. Don't really want to go home.
