There are also a ton of activities to keep you & the little ones entertained.

With a kids club, golf course, night club & many pools, you’ll never get bored.

The modern infinity pool and beachfront location is just icing on the cake!

In case you feel like venturing out, the resort is steps away from a local flora & fauna and a pre-Columbia era museum.

Plus, kids stay for free!

2. Wedding Options

At Iberostar, they don’t offer generic wedding packages like most resorts.

Instead, they allow you to customize your day to fit your specific needs & budget.

Having said that, the resort does offer a basic package called Nature of Love.

It includes the ceremony, décor, sparkling wine toast, and wedding cake.

Their focus is on providing “Evergreen Weddings” — glamorous, but eco-conscious celebrations in nature.

So you can rest assured knowing that no detail will be overlooked.

9. What Brides & Grooms Said...

“We’ve been home for a week and still missing it so much! We stayed here from 27th March until 17th April for our wedding which we had on the beach at the hotel. It was our first time to Mexico but we’ve been to lots of all inclusive resorts and this has definitely been our favourite! The animation team are brilliant, especially Alexis and Alex, they work so hard and are great at their jobs! The hotel staff are all very friendly and can’t do enough for you.

Janet, the wedding coordinator done a great job at organising our wedding day, we all had such a brilliant day…thank you! 5* service at this hotel as soon as you step off the bus, the bell boys are there straight away to help guests with their luggage. Even when we were going home and needed to weigh our cases, the bell boy took them over to the suitcase weigher for us and then outside to wait for the bus to pick us up.

The Iberostar is in a great location, there’s a bus stop right outside the hotel and buses are there constantly and it only costs 1USD or 12 pesos per person. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Mexico. We had the best time ever and hope to return soon!” – Sammie

brides opinion

We had our wedding ceremony and reception on the beach at Ibeorstar Cancun. It was beautiful and the set up was very nice. The wait staff was very attentive and made the day special. The resort rooms were OK, the Villas are great! I recommend staying in a Villa vs. regular room. Food was pretty good, and the bar tenders are great!” – EriAcosta
