Excellent vacation

The resort is located in Playacar, a gated area within Playa Del Carmen where you’ll see many other upscale resorts, luxary timeshares, apartments, housing, and eclectic shopping areas. If you are a person who gets nervous about safety while traveling you will find that being in this location you will feel 100% safe at all times. The hotel also does an excellent job of recommending safe transportation companies and areas to visit should you venture outside of the resort while visiting. My partner and I stayed over the New Year’s holiday and were extremely pleased with the resort. There were always areas to sit at the beach and it seemed that the beach was where most of the older couples spent their time while families with younger children tended to spend more time by the pool. You will find that there is constantly helpful staff ready to bring you drinks at the beach, get a game of volleyball started, start a Zumba/dance aerobics session on the beach, and endless other activities. Compared to other resorts we have been to we found this to be the most beautiful and natural resort. You will fall in love with the walking paths in the jungle and enjoy seeing the multitude of wildlife. As far as entertainment, the staff puts on great shows each night in the main theatre. If you are looking for something more intimate, there were many great musicians and singers who performed periodically in the evenings in the lobby bars. The drinks were excellent and all the bartenders and servers were extremely friendly and accommodating. For our a la carte restaurants we chose to dine at the Japanese steak house and the Tex Mex restaurant. The food at both locations was phenomenal. The gym was more on the small side and there are limited cardio machines so you might consider getting there early in the mornings if this is something you want to do while visiting. We also spent time at the sports bar one evening. The staff here was more than happy to put the game we wanted on the tv’s. Our room was always top notch when it came to being kept clean and tidy. The only time we left the resort was to visit Xel-Ha and honestly we cut what was supposed to be a full day outing in half and left early just so we could go back to the resort and relax. I cannot say enough good things about this resort. The number one best part was the staff, and how hard they work to make each guest have an excellent stay. I’ve already recommended this resort to several people and will continue to do so in the future.

Dining issues

I understand the intent to create an open air environment, however, when there are birds flying around, landing on and eating from the buffets, and eating from patrons plates, that is where I have a huge issue. Birds are not clean animals and they fly around defecating on tables, chairs, and food in the open air restaurants which causes major sanitary concerns for me. I am torn as to whether or not I would return or recommend to a friend because of this issue... The sports and entertainment staff was excellent but needed some help!!! I would highly recommend air conditioning the lobby. Sorry, but I am just being honest!

Loved my Iberostar Quetzal vacation!

I really enjoyed this resort and all of the amenities. I felt everything was top notch from the room to the dining to the entertainment. I feel that everyone went out of their way to insure a pleasurable experience and it was one of my best vacations. My only regret was we didn't stay longer! Thank you Iberostar Quetzal!

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive bundle of beachy bliss. You'll have everything under the sun.

Unwinding during a beachfront massage while gazing at the sparkling sea.

Your offspring can run around at the kid's pool or Kid's Club while you chillax.

It's located five minutes from downtown Playa del Carmen. (Read: Plenty of good shopping.)

 

What We'd Change

There is a lot of activity at the pool because it's shared by the sister resort, Iberostar Tucan. However, the beach is usually quiet.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 55 minutes from the airport. Patience, young jellyfish. Arriving at paradise takes time.

You can snorkel at the Great Maya Reef and explore the cenotes, natural sinkholes.

There's a gym, yoga, beach volleyball and beach Zumba to stay in pristine shape.

12-hour room service. Whenever you want it within the hours of 11 a.m. and 11 p.m.
