This was probably our 10th time vacationing in Cayo Largo and we were reasonably happy with our stay. Two things concerned us somewhat resulting in second thoughts about returning next winter. Upon arrival at noon, we were told our rooms were not ready for the next 2 hours - not a big deal. So we went to change out of...

If you would like to be in the crowded place - this is not right choice. Is quiet, really for persons who would like to be far from the crowd and noise. Beaches are beautiful but sometimes the waves are too strong on the beach in front of the hotel. But there is a transfer twice a day to one...

It was a lovely 7 day vacation. The service was amazing. The staff at the front desk was very courteous and helpful. There was a young man (Alexis?) and a young woman (name starts with M?) in particular that were very friendly and helpful. The staff at the lobby bar and fitness centre were wonderful! They do try very hard...

The overall standard is the same as all Iberostar, not the best but definitely not the worst. The food was plentiful if not vary varied, but you must remember here on tiny desert island they rely on regular deliveries from the mainland by ship, so can be delayed. Was there 18 days so had plenty of time to see all...
