Weekend break
Gorgeous setting on the beach. Opted for a room with share pool which was lovely,however I was slightly surprised that there were kids at the pool. I felt it would be better reserved for adults only, as the main pool had slides and areas for children. That said, it was more peaceful than the main pool, and the view was spectacular. The meal was the usual high standard for Iberostar, good quality and the option to have it cooked to order, as well as a well replenished buffet. The evening entertainment was also good. A singer the evening we were there, and the bar staff were very efficient.

The pool was way too small - there was no place to swim anywhere since the front part was flat for little kids and the deeper part was where the 2 water slides came in. That was the only negative Point

Lovely hotel, facilities, entertainment and food. Only one thing to be aware of is that the area itself is not very busy with tourists, some people will like that others may not. Right on the beach though which is fabulous.
