We were amazed by the cleanness and the food quality. The proximity of the sea is also great (besides the pool, bit we do prefer the sea). The staff is friendly and very helpful. Te sand beach is close (3 min walk) - but if that is too hard, you can still enjoy the pool.
I stayed here with my wife and we had the most amazing long weekend. The staff where super friendly, the management team was a delight and any small concern was dealt with in an extremely professional and prompt manner.
The hotel was wonderful and the weather was great too!
We stayed for 2 weeks in Iberostar. First of all, unfortunately this isn't a 5 star hotel in any aspect. Every experience begins at the front desk which is operated, with 1 or 2 exceptions, by very rude and not at all clientele oriented staff. Especially the 2 male receptionist are pretty bluntly arrogant and not at all willing to help you. I guess this is different for German guests. We once kindky asked to reserve us a restaurant in the mountains for lunch, after trying it for ourselves. The first response of the receptionist is looking annoyed that you disturbed her in her business, and saying that the restaurant is closed. Then looking away and continuing her business. I had to insist and say its indicated as open on their website, finally, with a big sigh, she called and made the reservation. This pretty much sums up the 'customer service' in the hotel. Please bear in mind that 90% of guests are German, the staff greets you in German and seems to have a big preference for these guests for any undefinable reason. There are some exceptions, some hard working servers like Aureol that really enjoy their job and are excellent performers. The rooms are nice, we had a beautiful view on the ocean and the rooms are kept clean. However, the hall ways (and there are so many of them) are often not so clean, with stains on the carpet and hairs everywhere, same for the pool area. The German guests 'reserve' their sun beds early in the morning by laying down their towels and often don't even bother to show up, as we know is common for Germans on holidays. Unfortunately this is often ignored by the staff. The food is good, albeit repetitive the second week. The first week we had lobster, sushi and other high end products. The live shows are of low quality, even if the performers were doing their best and were enthusiastic, this just isn't good enough for the claimed 5 star experience. It all feels a bit cheap and corny. The spa was good, we enjoyed a couple of very relaxing massages and the spa itself is a great way to escape the fuzz. Lastly, the parking lot is so extremely small, if you have a car you can almost never find a spot. This should really be taken care of. The only option they are giving you is leaving the car in front of the reception but then you get a paper on the front screen saying you should remove your car immediately. Great but to park it where? Overall we had a good time, the location is perfect, right in front of the beach. We were just disappointed by the 5 star rating that is absolutely not being reflected by the staff nor the decoration of the place. We had a difficult year (like everyone) and wanted to treat ourselves by booking a high end hotel, when you don't get what you had hoped for, it's only natural to be disappointed. It's a huge hotel that is being poorly managed and seems to mainly focus on German customers or their privileged star guests. It doesn't have the luxurious nor glamorous look and feel that a 5 star hotel should definitely have.
